Taking a page out of reality... When in college I took a undergrad class in electronics at UT Austin. The first sentence of the whopper of a textbook was this: "All energy derives from the Sun." I was a little perplexed by this at first, but after thinking about it for a while it made absolute sense. The logic runs along Einstein's observation on the definition of darkness. In reality darkness is defined as the absence of light. Light is energy. Electronics is based on manipulating energy. In any economy, in any civilization ever known to the human race, energy is the driver. This is the weapon that BHO is welding against the USA and the world. It comes with the guise of the environment and faux claims of immanent death for those who do not tow the administrations one world Marxist agenda. Have a good day my fellow comrade Ransom. Time to take the ministers of "Truth" into the courtyard and show the "chicken littles" of this world a taste of their dysfunction with their backs against the courtyard wall Hemmingway style.

Can you imagine the level of panic if the Federal government was required by law to utilize a lean program in the form of the likes of Demming, Shewhart, and Goldblat? We are talking better results with about 90% less payroll.
I think you are a little off base on the oil companies. In the USA the average gallon of gas at the pump contains 47 cents of taxes. The amount of profit the oil companies get from that gallon? Try less than 2 cents.
If you look at the U6 numbers "many" is actually right at about 80%. The kicker is that if you lose your full time job and are busted to part time due to obamacare, this administration counts that as a "job created."
I think you are a little off on the inflation numbers. The day BHO took office the price of gas was 1.78 a gallon, average price today is 3.52. Which of course is little more than 40%. More like an almost a 100% increase (which it was exactly last week). Of course all these cost are factored into everything you buy, not just the gas you buy for your car. Take a look of the price of any of the downstream costs of all the things made from oil... all have a similar if not greater inflation rate than auto fuel. Just take hydraulic fluid: 19.95 in 2009... 49.99 in 2014. Quart of motor oil (cheapest 10-40) 1.69 in 2009, 3.69 in 2014. Of course the obama solution is to put the coal industry out of business which will drive all energy prices higher. Adding 20 million new illegals to the multigenerational welfare roles is another bonus.
For the last time: BHO is NOT a socialist. He is a communist. Do a little research for crying out loud. Let me put this as simply as possible: you can be a communist without being a community organizer, but you cannot be a community organizer without being a communist.

Guys, you might want to look at the actual legislation concerning welfare. Like all good communists do, this administration has "re-interpreted" the language to suit their political goals. Pure unadultered hegelian dialect of materialism. In other words, a fantasy. There was a survey a couple of months ago that was quite impressive in its population and sampling. The target was to find out why these illegals were coming. Number one item of the reasons is welfare. You see, citizenship is no longer valid. If you are an illegal you get the full monty of welfare and of course it is illegal to ask citizenship status when signing up for obamacare. Add in free health care.

If you look at the scope of this cover up, it is nothing like watergate. This is the corruption of multiple and entire government agencies with 100's of thousands people.

Correct, even in 2011 the MTBF for a cheap drive was between 1.2 and 1.6 million hours. And, as noted, every email is stored on a server with redundant capabilities. So basically this is just another case of a bald faced lie from this administration. They will lie even when the truth would suffice.
It is not just Austin. From 2009 to 2013 over half the jobs in the USA were created in Texas. This said, 300 companies every year are relocating to Austin alone. Texas has 4 of the 10 fastest growing large cities as a percentage of overall population growth. In the midsize city category using this same metric Texas has 7 of the 15 fastest growing cities.
