eb: "you are already considered brain washed by them and drug boy"

Wrong again, eb. I've learned not to believe anything Obama says. He's lied to us far too many times. We even have multiple video of him lying to us. Past time you realize it, also.

You'd think your complete inability to support any of your claims would give you pause to think.

mav: "Hag. people on social security pay 10 to 12 percent of their income for medicare. How much of your income do you pay?"

Please share, from a reliable source, where you got those numbers. For the record, I pay about 1.5%.

See how easy it is to answer questions. Why is it so difficult for liberals?

mav: "when Americans go into Iraq and terrorize innocent people by Bombing the shyte out of their country to attempt to kill one man (which was a lie)."

You're talking about Obama's indiscriminate droning of innocent people, correct? And targetting American citizens for death without benefit of a trial, as guaranteed by our Constitution?

"We went in to secure the oil and boost Halibutons coffers"

Really? Tell us how much we boosted their coffers. Or, you made that up.

mav: "You can't try to pass off Fox news as a credible source when you won't accept any liberal source as valid."

You have it wrong. It is not the source, but the content. Fox News has the highest viewership by FAR because of their content, and factual news. Why do you think the liberal news failed to dig into the Benghazi facts as much as their efforts to blame Christi for Bridgegate, non-stop? Far different than making a mistake on a story one time, wouldn't you say?

You, in FACT, admitted that the black federal official ADMITTED making an "error in judgement". You failed to provide a link, but your own words proved Fox's report correct.

Can you give Fox News credit for getting the story of the White House repeatedly lying about Benghazi in order to reelect Obama? Come on. The facts keep stacking up.

"Conservatives believe that patriotism is Shock and Awe"

Conservatives believe patriotism is adherence to the Constitution. Something libe

eb, you are still neglecting to answer questions. What are you afraid of? I'll tell you. The TRUTH scares you.

You can talk about anything you want. In fact, we have been talking about unemployment, the ACA, and the economy. I'm shocked you missed it.

Unemployment at 6.3%? Bush's average unemployment rate was 5.3%, and that with the devistating attack on our nation and the subsequent economy crash. Do you remember when Obama stated in 2007 that an unemployment rate of 4.75% was unacceptsble, and he would fix it?

That's a simple "YES" or "NO" question for you, eb.

There are 94,594,000 Americans not working, a new record. Care to comment?

766,000 more women are unemployed than when Obama took office. Obama pays women far less than men on his staff. And the left accuse the Republicans of staging a war on women. Comment, eb?

Economy? GDP is only 0.1%. Care to discuss it?

You wish to talk about those issues, so talk. If reality doesn't scare you too

Hag you don't even know what patriotism is. Conservatives believe that patriotism is Shock and Awe, when Americans go into Iraq and terrorize innocent people by Bombing the shyte out of their country to attempt to kill one man (which was a lie). We went in to secure the oil and boost Halibutons coffers so that they could come back and buy up all the American mineral right and place their drilling rigs all over the face of America. There is conservative patriotism.

You can't try to pass off Fox news as a credible source when you won't accept any liberal source as valid. What about Fox bews taking a snipit from the internet to make a black female federal official out to be a racist when the entire film clip would have shown her admitting to her error in judgement and the full story shows the people who's case she was working praised her for the job she did. Faux unfair and unbalanced not that is the truth.

Now, that's funny right there.

Not to mention realistic. And the lefties want to make fun of Fox News, the highest rated cable news network, by far, the place where most folks go for the facts. How can they be SO wrong so often?

"Florida gov got put on the spot when going to a retirement center in a HEAVILY REPUBLICAN ARE to get ACA horror stories only to get embarrassed when 20 of the 21 answer that they loved it"

Really, eb? 20 of 21 retirees love it? Do you realize that those folks are not in the ACA, they fall under Medicare, for which they pay nothing, or close to it?

A few questions for you (that we can probably add to the long, long list of questions you have never answered).

What happened to the 30+ million people the Dems told us were DESPERATE for health insurance when they sold you the bill of goods? Where are they? Only about 8 million have signed up, and many of them because they lost the insurance they had and liked. 65% of those that signed up, were only window shopping, and haven't even paid!

How do you explain that

Are you aware that an additional 125 million tax dollars have been spent on the broken healthcare**** web site, and it is still broken, and still unprotected?

EB, you are wrong. Again. It was not I that determined you lack of patriotism. It was you own words that would result in the crippling of our entire electric grid, shut down our nation, eliminate virtually ALL jobs, no doubt causing tremendous loss of life.

YOUR stated desire. Not mine.

As for Fox News, I'm not sure what post you feel I owed you to post. I do know that the recent emails from the White House that they his for a year and a half clearly and further shows that Fox News had the Benghazi story correct in that Obama knew the truth, deliberately his the truth, let four people die, just to prevent the facts from harming his reelection.

I believe you, and he, owe Fox News a sincere apology. You might add one for me for your shameful words when I tried to lead you to the truth.

For the record, what do you think of our Liar-in-Chief and his "transparent" government, now that more facts about Benghazi have been uncovered, by force of the law?

First of Hagrid - WHO are you to determine one's patriotism? You fall right into that group that is blinded by the hate of Obama that you will be for whatever will hurt you in spite of Obama. Real smart. You don't care of the medical cost of the effects of black lung, nor do you care of the deaths in the mines as you think its about jobs. How moral is that?

Now you are back on Benghazi from a republican website. You did not post the faux post because you are already considered brain washed by them and drug boy. You are running out things to report on the ACA, because it is in fact working for more Americans than you would like. Florida gov got put on the spot when going to a retirement center in a HEAVILY REPUBLICAN ARE to get ACA horror stories only to get embarrassed when 20 of the 21 answer that they loved it. He tried to spin it on the news saying the one had problems, but reminded about the other 20. Get your head out the sand and see the world is moving past you.

In my opinion, coal fired plant closings are the business decision of the company. Over the years - knowing the scope of the upcoming EPA standards - they chose NOT to make the necessary upgrades to keep the facilities running. All the while stuffing their pockets and their stockholders pockets with billions. You can't lay the blame at the feet of the "liberals". It's just nonsense.

Any comments on the latest proof that Obama lied about Benghazi?

What about you folks who denied the facts, and voted for him, AGAIN?

Do you think he would have gotten reelected if the folks who couldn't figure it out for themselves and blindly followed what he told you, had listened to the folks who had it right?

I' m shocked. SHOCKED, I tell you!

Nay, not really. The lies were obvious to everyone, right?

BREAKING: Leaked Benghazi Emails Lead to White House *******conservativetribune****/benghazi-emails-lead-to-obama/

We’ve known for months now that the Obama administration knowingly peddled a false narrative that the Benghazi attack was due to an anti-Muslim video.

Now, we have even more evidence that this was a concerted effort on the part of Obama to hide his own policy failures in the Middle East.

Newly released emails show that the Obama administration waged a PR campaign for weeks aimed at covering up the true nature of the attack in the months leading up to the presidential election.

Emails that were just declassified due to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the watchdog group Judicial Watch show that top Obama communications advisers were actively engaged in preparing UN Ambassador Susan Rice on her talking points.

eb: "Personally I am for closing the coal mines."

Interesting. That would shut down over 60% of the electric generation in the United States. The loss of that much generation would overload the grids, most likely shutting them all down, putting the country in the dark.

Hospitals, banks, police stations, businesses, gas stations, homes, all without power. It would mean a completed collapse of government, most likely causing untold loss of life.

You would really wish that on our nation? That would be far in excess than a large group of terrorists could accomplish.

Shame, eb, SHAME. You've said a lot of un-patriotic thing, racist remarks, but this is probably the most telling of your character. I'm truly surprised that you would expose such hatred for you nation and it's people.

At least it came out that you are against state regulations other than just federal. Personally I am for closing the coal mines. Like they tell the American worker who's job got outsourced, they should tell the coal mine owners to "Get another skill or be more innovative" in providing renewable/cleaner energy to the country. Sounds familiar?

I hate to say I told you so:

U.S. electricity prices may be going up for good ***********latimes(dot)com/nation/la-na-power-prices-20140426,0,6329274.story#axzz306rbXwVe The electrical system's duress was a direct result of the polar vortex, the cold air mass that settled over the nation. But it exposed a more fundamental problem. There is a growing fragility in the U.S. electricity system, experts warn, the result of the shutdown of coal-fired plants, reductions in nuclear power, a shift to more expensive renewable energy and natural gas pipeline constraints. The problems confronting the electricity system are the result of a wide range of forces: new federal regulations on toxic emissions, rules on greenhouse gases, state mandates for renewable power, technical problems at nuclear power plants and unpredictable price trends for natural gas.

The federal government appears to have underestimated the impact as well.

eb, if you don't like things the way they are, feel free to start your own mom and pop business, pay your workers top wages, paid healthcare, a month's vacation every year, sick leave, maternity leave for both mom and dad, full compliance with all the thousands of costly, burdensome federal and state regulations.

Let us know how it works out for you, OK?

Oh, and stop buying all your cheap clothes, electronics,cars, tools, etc., from China, Phillipines, South Korea, India. The very people who complain about companies sending THEIR jobs overseas are packing the aisles at Walmart.

Yes, it did happen. Stuff happens. Nothing is 100%.

You failed to mention whose job it was to monitor tank levels at the site and check for leaks. No, it was not the CEO of the company, it was the WORKERS job, and they screwed up. Yet I never hear you placing blame where it lies.

"YOU don't care about the environment because of who is pushing it.

Wrong. I am concerned with over-regulation, such as turtles over cattle, and no concern for the eagles that are killed by windmills, for example.

"How time do you get upset when you call an "American" company and you get someone from another country."

In English, please.

"How come you don't get upset that our congress will not raise a finger to get these jobs back in America."

I do. I have written congressmen/women telling them that our having the second highest tax rate in the world is driving business elsewhere.

Face it. This happened and it actually happened to you Hagrid, you would think its a government conspiracy. You are about an anti-government move to clean up the environment. YOU don't care about the environment because of who is pushing it. The steel mills left this country because of greed, manufacturing also left because of greed. How time do you get upset when you call an "American" company and you get someone from another country. How come you don't get upset that our congress will not raise a finger to get these jobs back in America. America was meant for people to earn a decent wage to raise a family, BUT now its all about a company's bottom line. Mom and Pop stores served communities very well in our days, but now they are under cut. YOU AND OTHERS forgot about the mom and pops who just wanted a business to serve their community.
