It's close to time for me to bail on townhall. If they won't filter the spam on the message boards, I think I'm going to have to stop wasting my time here.

Obama Targets Americans At The Pump

Any combination of Cruz, Jindal, Walker, Carson or Palin (in that order) would fire me up. Any combination including Romney, Jeb, Christie, or Huckabee would demoralize me. On the other hand, Palin is good at what she's been doing and generally poison in a general election. It's been 8 years so she'd have a 2nd chance, but very little rope.

What's your point? Capitalism too rough for you?
With oil prices down, now's the time to put a cap on the prices. 1. Pass and build the Keystone XL pipeline. Encourage the construction of as many others as are needed to allow oil and natural gas to flow freely around the country. 2. DO NOT allow for the export of oil. Our natural resources should be refined and used here. 3. On top of #2, encourage the construction of refineries and energy processing facilities around the US. 4. Finally, ease permitting for oil and gas exploration on public lands and offshore. It doesn't need to be started immediately, but sell the rights and get people lined up to do as soon as prices start rising again. That way we'll be set up to increase production, as soon as it's economically possible and we don't have to suffer through $10 more years of high oil prices before our readily available supplies become available. Oil prices will eventually rise, but adding some flexibility into our processing and distribution infrastructure as well as allowing for the increased exploration of our own oil will effectively cap oil prices far below the average prices of the last few years. This will boost the worldwide economy benefiting us the most and neutering most of the worst actors on the world stage (Middle East, Mexico, Russia, Venezuela, etc.).

It's about committing everything to the other person and becoming one. When you marry, separate checking accounts should go. If you're not willing to commit you shouldn't get married or live together. For better or worse till death do us part.
I can't believe dufus criticizes the Ernst ad. It was great. It put her on the map. It sent exactly the right message and people loved it. It might not connect with an east coast DC hack, but that's the point.
Saw it. Regret it.

Long-Term Unemployment is Key to Puzzle

So what? Do we need to give more money to higher ed? The long term unemployed are such because we let them grow stale on unemployment for 2+ years. Now their skills are dated and going to work would require a little more effort than they're willing to expend. Like most liberal feel good programs, extended unemployment is not the benefit it is intended to be.
I'll admit that I didn't think I'd learn anything from the headline coming in, but breaking down the numbers like this was enlightening. At this point, who knows? I think the biggest questions are who our presidential nominee is and how strongly do they run?
