At least this year, thanks to private enterprise (and no thanks to Barack and Al, etc.), heating bills will be a bit cheaper, especially in the states that use fuel oil.


Let our government release the models it uses to predict Global Warming to the general public. Those of us who went to college for science, math and engineering can look at them and either join the choir, or dispute them on a factual basis. What's to be lost?

The ability to sustain this debacle depended upon solid Democratic majorities in Congress. Mr. Pres should have been happy with this alone, and left the rest of his agenda for someone else. President Obama's policies have so alienated the productive sector of our economy that the Democrats have lost their majorities, and we are about to see Democratic Senators defecting to the Republican side to repeal Obamacare because of the drastic premium increases that will create a public outrage against the law. Distancing themselves from Obama now is going to be the first priority for those 20+ Democratic Senators who will be up for reelection in 2016, and maybe even for those who face reelection in 2018.

Watch it happen. Obama owns this one.

Chances are that Clay was denied an adjunct faculty position teaching future unemployed artists how to draw lame political cartoons. There's a reason why Chattanooga State does not offer degrees in things that don't lead directly to jobs. People who aren't going to work for a living might as well be uneducated, because there's no value in teaching them skills that don't lead directly to jobs.

We had pizza last night. I went to the grocery store and picked up a 5-cheese pizza, plus pepperoni, ham cubes, green pepper and pineapple. I brought all that home and cooked it in our own oven. None of it was paid for with EBT. I spent money that we earned, and we had exactly what we wanted, and it cost considerably less than it would have to order one to be delivered, or to pick up ready made. So, let's review the facts:

  1. I made the effort to go out and purchase the ingredients.

  2. I paid for them with money I earned.

  3. I made the effort to put it all together and cook it at home.

  4. I saved money by doing most of the work myself.

  5. I got exactly what we wanted.

  6. No government was involved during the entire process.

Yeah, that's very Republican. So sue me.

I wonder how many Democratic felons receiving EBT ordered pizza last night and paid twice as much for the same thing?

What patriot said is true. I had to provide the same verification as everyone else to get a Tennessee ID. Make it simple; have the legislature pass a law to make verification of ID for the purpose of obtaining a voter ID card FREE. Everyone certainly pays enough sales tax to cover the cost of something that simple.

There is absolutely no reason why, in this day and age, a person 18 and older should NOT be able to procure a photo ID. In fact, there are very few legitimate things a person can do WITHOUT a photo ID. The only reason for a person to resist providing an ID is that they are not entitled to vote (not registered, or a convicted felon, or not a citizen).

Looks just like another disenfranchised voter to me.

The families of DEPLOYED military people are at home, helpless, if ISIS decides to attack them where they live. Attacks can also take place on bases, and guess where people are not allowed to keep weapons? In their housing quarters on MILITARY BASES! Military members do not go armed on the base as a general rule, unless they are on-duty security forces.

If the President cannot count on his own elite protection force to do one simple and direct thing, why should we count on the VA, IRS, Homeland Security, Department of Agriculture or any of the rest of them to do what they're supposed to do?

Accountability in government disappeared when agencies began to grow just to provide jobs for liberal constituencies. Oh, I forgot the Department of Education.

Now we have Ebola in Texas, ISIS is threatening attacks on the families of service members in this country, and our borders are letting in thousands (including, undoubtedly, some terrorists) who cannot be tracked. Want to guess who they'll be going after? Not the gun owners; nope.

Welcome to the world you created, liberals. Have fun with it.

What should be in the box? Money they printed? Only the Feds can print money.
