Was that the one that they had to remove parts of his brain from? That could explain why he never makes any sense. I thought steiner was nuts but DC is 4 steps below that.

joeeeew: you've certainly made a difference in our world. We used to be stuck with clothes in sizes S, M, L and XL. Now, seeing how it fits you, "toady" is a new size.

MikeyD -- You are nothing if not illuminating. Who knew the true value and scope of your opinions, assessments and insights of the world was so vast, that even when soaking wet, they could all fit in a matchbox with space to spare?

Ms Westling writes: "Our current welfare system harms the very people it helps (thru) reliance on govt...it robs them of their pride and self worth."

Should we have a pity party for all these "victims" of govt asst? It used to be shameful to be on welfare, but after hearing all the bleeding hearts continually blame the govt as the reason for such dependence, I'm sure it now makes it much easier for more generations (many from the same families) to accept that this must be their lot in life. So sad.

Hey judeye: even if PR meant Puerto Rican, why would you consider this abbreviation to be racist?

joew and mike, the antifrackers ignore the lack of problems with all the fracking that has already been done. They ignore the issues in our public schools, that never make the headlines, muggings, gang violence and the best, low graduation rates. All liberal havens. There is a boom in the oil patch and it is due to fracking. The other energy nations are concerned as US is expanding production. all of this means nothing to the dumb liberal. They say reduce imports , but then fight every attempt to expand production here, claiming renewables will do it. they have not, cant and will not. The libs are mentally ill, pure and simple. The libs actually subsidize via tax credits, etc, tesla motor company ,so rich people can buy high end electric cars. How dumb is that ?

Actually Nathan,the EPA has not substantiated or linked the water issue in Pavilion to fracking and have in fact terminated the investigation. The State of WY will carry on the investigation.

The real question of the day is how is that 401K now that obama and cronies pulled the rug out Judeye? Still your "hero" ? This country has been sold a bill of goods that will take us into the poor house...for Dc dummies and company that means third world status. Courtesy of the muslim be-i-otch in the white house and his agenda. Keep telling yourselves how much he cares...I'm laughing all the way to the the bank. I bet this jerk was going to break America and so far I am up 120K...should climb a BUNCH higher tomorrow. Thank you B. Hussein and Joe B. (maybe a little shrug to Nancy P.) How are those "undocumented" workers doing for you? Giving you the votes you need to stay in office and finish the country? Keep thinking the party line thoughts folks...my bank account loves stupid.

Mike-I wonder if Dcronig's "accident"can be considered a "pre-existed" condition and therefore covered by the ACA? Left a message on Pelousy's answering service for clarification.

The EPA has only substantiated one case of frack fluid migration up to a water table. This occurred in Pavilion, Wyoming, at a well site that should not have been fracked in the first place since the reservoir rock and local water table were separated by only a few hundred vertical feet of rock, not the more than a mile like you typically find in formations like the Marcellus. The United States has enormous energy demands; hydrofracking the country's vast shale gas and oil reserves can go a long way towards meeting those needs. If done responsibly, the risks associated with hydrofracking can be mitigated.

hey judeye and cronig, look at the inner cities, buffalo, detroit, Dc, etc. democratic control,public employees entrenched, vast areas of dilapidation and death. Vicki is wrong to be concerned about this ? In Buffalo I read 13,000 homes will have to be demoed. Vicki is wrong to be concerned ? Learned libs judeye and cronig tell us why we need not be concerned here. And special to judeye again, who hated fracking but wants the benfit oif driving, heating and the chemical world we live in, please answer this question. Judeye, what are we to do without frackingand gas and oil ? Since you never answer that I assume you dont have an answer, just another liberal, bent on control and no answer. You might be one of those church lady gaggle people cronig keeps talking about in disguise.

judeye, who does not like the 2nd amendment wants to control the first via free speech controls. She disliked citizens united. Judeye, why should you want to restrict free speech ? feeling better than the rest of us ? Dk nails it in his response. Judeye has the same tired old liberal refrain Judeye, you are suffering from end of the world delusions about fracking and the environment. Read the history of the country, air pollution galore, nuclear testing above and below ground and our numbers have increased.. Now learned judeye wants to ban fracking , good science at work and she is against it. judeye knows nothing of science. .

Judeye gets it wrong again and again. A fracking ban in California was defeated. Do you understand anything about life at all judeye. Your lungs are fracked so gas exchange can happen.Look at a picture of the amazon river from space, its fracked via its tributaries. Put this underground and you have a fracked gas well. Do you know that the world needs hydrocarbons to exist ? are you that naive or just another Ida Tarbell ? Judeye, are you learning disabled ? Corporations bad ? Why, we have unions which you love.They dump money into campaigns judeye. NY not in a downward spiral ? huh ? Cronig and judeye, the two most disinformed liberal posters here. Judeye, you never explain what the world will do without hydrocarbons. Lets see that feminine intution at work , judeye. tell us what a modern liberated woman like you would do . Other than raise taxes, etc

Dc, your lack of anything coming close to common sense advertises your political leanings. Calling SS and Medicare an entitlement when there is a mandatory tax for both is ingenuine at best and raw stupidity at worst. You have become a troll, and the sad part is you aren't even interesting while you troll. Why don't you stay up late tonight and see if you can't learn a different off the wall comment from one of the cable channels? "clueless church lady gaggle" is so tired I can't even work up a decent yawn to it anymore. And you had such promise before the accident. At least I hope it was an accident, you didn't purposely stuff your head up there, did you?

commentor, Sorry there guy but taxes and upkeep are built into the rental charges. You think anyone is going to pay any extra charges such as taxes without passing it on to whoever the consumer is. If you believe that I have some ocean front property in the middle of the Sahara for you.

Renters DO NOT pay taxes. Property owners pay taxes. Three times a year property owners get stiffed with increases on property taxes. Renters get, maybe, one increase per year that does NOT equal what they would pay in property taxes. Try to justify it any way you want I repeat RENTERS DO NOT PAY TAXES!!!!!!!

Take a drive along our rural roads,the vineyards,the farms which use boots on the ground to cultivate,maintain,and harvest crops and tell me/us who you observe doing the work. Look at the license plates along the grape vineyards and tell me why we need "imported" workers to tie,and trim the grapes? Simple,lazy people and liberal handouts with no regard to hardworking men and women who have a backbone and pride.

Judeye-you did not mention by name who"he" is as you do with others. Just can't bring yourself to say it? Now you still have not said if you agree that the SEIU,AFL-CIO,and the BIGGEST contributors (dollar wise) to the Obama campaign which is the teacher unions, should lose their tax exempt status as well? Pretty easy question right? yes or no????
