    I'll tell you what makes me sick.
    Obama administration giving 500 million dollars to solyndra when they knew it would go belly up to bail out wealthy investors that also happen to be big Obama donors. You know what else makes me sick? How the Obama administration is banning the inhalers that over 1 million Asthma sufferers rely on for relief. The reason it's a generic so big drug companies aren't making buttloads of cash. Now that the inhalers are banned asthma sufferers will have to pay considerably more for a product that doesn't work as well. basically Obama lining the pockets of the drug companies. A lawyer making 1.5 million doesn't even rate when compared to this type of corruption

    Is that all you're here for is political argument? Because I'm sure there are far better forums for that than this one.

    Oh, and nice defense [​IMG] "Oh yeah?...Well Obama did something TOO!" You are defending poor decisions by claiming that someone else made poor decisions...

    i remember the inhaler ban, except i remember the ban started in 2008 by bush, the final deadline was set for this year but the policy was actually bush's administration.

    nando I can't understand why their districts even like them (probably rich and white). Boehner probably will be reelected, he only has to appeal to his district and if his district wants massive cuts in government spending, fighting for bans on abortion and gay marrriage and no tax increase on millionaires. I'm not fond of Boehner, I find him phony not nearly as much as Mitt Romney but still phony.

    Okay, am I the only one feeling this is getting out of hand? Smile72 is posting news articles left, right, and center. He is NOT giving sources for them, and they're...rather relevant to anything at all. They're just random little things, and almost seem like spam for him to get status as a news poster...

    Just don't spam politics news... not everyone is an american. You don't see me posting news about what happens in Europe.

    Or else the spam would be MUCH worse... as we are having tons of issues (with my country included in them...)

    Yeah, i guess I could understand that but when the 2012 election gets closer I'm probably going to create a topic announcing the winners of the elections of the House and Presidency. Sorry I'll tune down the politics, maybe one article every 4 days- 7days or so.

    Thanks, by the way Living Shadow do you consider yourself more left, right or middle on the political spectrum?

    OK, now you've got that out of your system, any thoughts on the actual subject of the thread rather than trying to change the subject with a whine of "But Obaaammaaaaaa"?

    Seems many US Conservatives are only for less spending and small government unless it's government money being spent on making sure the government gets to decide if people they don't like can marry or not.
