alprova said...Sir, I've got a very good grip on what the Republicans stand for, and for the last four years, it has been nothing but negative issues coming from the lot of them.
I did not suggest you or anyone else should blindly support republicans either. However, you consider opposing anything Obama and his minions think is good is being negative.
Democrats will prevail because they are trying to do something.
What is it they are trying to do that would improve things without increasing the debt? A majority are damn glad they can't do some of the stupid things they are trying to do.
illegal for U.S. oil companies to export crude oil."
You're out of touch, I'm afraid.
Japan and South Korea are the first to purchase a U.S. grade of super-light crude known as condensate.
This of course, is under challenge, because it is being called a shift in longstanding U.S. policy and it appears that the Commerce Department is behind the move to export condensates.
Yes, it is certain one of us don't know what we are talking about.
The relatively obscure fuel source, derived from the light, sweet oil being that's churned out domestically, is used mainly by chemical companies and refiners. Condensates were thrust into the spotlight this week, after the U.S. granted approval to two companies to export limited quantities of condensates
At this point, analysts say the Commerce Department's authorization to ship the light, gassy fuel abroad is more symbolic than substantive. However, the move is being interpreted by some as a sign that a lifting of the domestic ban on most oil exports is less a question of if than when.
Loosening restrictions on condensates "is certainly a baby step, but also a significant step toward lifting the ban totally," said Charles Ebinger, director of the Brookings Institution's Energy Security Initiative. Although the export barrier is still in place for now, "enough pressure is building. Don't be surprised if they lift the ban totally in the first part of the year" after elections have passed, he said.
Are you sure transportation cost would be greater from the U.S. than it is to the U.S. since there is no requirement that U.S. shipping sources be used. Why would it be prohibitive for U.S. oil producers but not every other producing country?
alprova said....It's going to be a good year for Democrats, let me tell ya'
Words of someone that has blind loyalty to a party instead of what the candidate stands for. The results could be terrible for the U.S. or good for either party and the U.S. It all depends on who is elected. The democrats would do well to dump Pelosi and Reid but be careful about who they elect instead.
alprova said....The United States exports about 1 million barrels of crude each and every day.
To one country only which congress made an exception however, it is illegal for U.S. oil companies to export crude oil. The difference now and when that bad law was written in the 70's the price of oil to those in the U.S. and Europe could be driven down plus while putting pressure on those who hate us in the middle east and north Africa.
Obama's commitment to income equality consist of confiscating from a few to be spread unearned among many. Wouldn't it be refreshing to see income equality supported in a way that enabled those willing to work an opportunity to earn more and improve the balance of income equality?

I agree regarding her nutrition initiative but don't agree with either of you for ever being ashamed to be an American. Why not move to a country you would be more proud of?
It is useless to waste time posting specifics reasons for not supporting Obama since you justify each of them including your comment that lies are just politics during campaigns. He is not competent and his selections for key positions are terrible and devoid of meaningful large business management experience. Name one leader he has convinced or influenced regarding any critical issue? He panders to unions and other special interest such as those opposed to the Keystone pipeline and allowing exporting U.S. oil.
alprova said..I'm ashamed to be an American at times, it has been so bad.
You and Michelle. Do you also think people should eat healthy and have you as she says she has always done so?
Don't blame the president, give him credit for knowing what he does best and for doing that that more often than anything. Like the counselor said, determine what you are good at and do any better than anyone. Fund raising is his strong suite so he concentrates on that regardless of what others think he should do.
Now, tell us how one may not be sorely "disappointed" as you put it.
Why would I want to do that? I really don't care what happens to you or others. Perhaps all of you have been duped by the devil since the behavior and post here does not suggest any of you are Christians.
How would anyone know who was saved at all, Connie?
It's not as if the dead come back to visit.
Are you certain you are set for salvation?
Isn't that the question you should be asking yourself?
The last two questions is what every person professing to be a Christian should be asking themselves. Those opining and judging others in this forum may be sorely disappointed when told I know you not.
