To The Daily Sun,
Sorry Russ, you're right, Obama never did get to end the wars, but not for the lack of trying. But I am surprised you're not happy about that due to the fact all the GOP was pretty upset about ending the wars.
They would have been happier to invade Iran, as would Israel and Netanyahu. Then again just maybe it's all politics. Israel would have no problem with Iran without our help. By the way, who does Boehner think he is inviting Netanyahu to speak to Congress? The usual back-stabbing of the president again by the GOP. If the GOP spent as much time working for the American people as they do trying to undermine Obama something just might get accomplished.
In case you haven't noticed, Obama has almost begged them to work with him on raising wages, creating jobs, creating revenue by closing tax loop holes on the top 1 percent, but they just ignore him. I doubt if even Fox would deny that raising wages would help bring more into the middle class. I think that only the GOP thinks it's a bad idea to raise wages. One reason being floated around is by keeping wages low and unlivable more of our youth would join the service instead of the 12 percent that are our current volunteers. It should be tempting for them. Decent wages and housing, learning a trade and good education possibilities. Good benefits with a decent retirement package.
Tony Boutin might have missed the fact Obama's job approval has gone up to 50 percent. He was probably busy calling me a "whackoranter". Nope, I don't think you're an idiot Tony, just think you are wrong. Really Tony, the only difference in your analysis of who will be running in 2016 is probably our filthy rich white "woman" and your filthy rich white "man." Unless you all go for Sarah Palin.
Steve Earle wants us to drill everywhere. How's about right on the river in Hill? By the way, the president doesn't control the price of oil and the Union Pacific Railroad transports the bulk of the oil by rail. Not BNSF as you claim. Also rail is safer now and UP is dedicated to safety and protecting the environment. Haven't you Keystone backers ever wondered why Trans Canada doesn't send the oil to the Pacific which is closer, probably would be cheaper and no interference from U.S. Because even the Canadians have environmentalists and they have stopped that dead in its tracks. The reality is that they care about their country and the environment, so it is easier to run the oil through our country because the GOP is in charge of Congress and Canada knows the GOP and nine Democrats don't care about our environment. But remember the oil is not for us but will be going overseas.
Beware Tom Dawson, the wagons are surrounding Fox News who, according to Jim McCoole, was endowed on the people by an act of God with the rights of the freedom of the press. I thought that freedom was in our Constitution written by our Founding Fathers,
As far as all the high taxes Murdoch pays, Mr. Meade, I'm not to sure about that. I couldn't find much info on Fox and taxes but did find that Murdoch hides a lot of taxable income offshore to avoid paying our taxes. Why Congress doesn't shut that loophole is beyond me. I forgot, the GOP likes it. He also has Democratic views on immigration in case you're interested.
Mike Huckabee was also taken back a bit by the trash talking women on Fox, after complaining about the trash-talking women in NYC. The Fox ladies put him in his place though. However, I won't go as far as Dawson's sedition and treason views on Fox. They are a bit extreme even for me. Depending on who you believe, either Fox has a high believable rate or a low one. One truth is most of the viewers are Republican and that is who they aim for and who believe in them. All that plus some inheritance is how Murdoch became a rich man. All legal last I heard.
I just hope we are all reading this after a Patriots win on Sunday.
