A report by Fox News, captured in a clip posted on YouTube.com, showed Waters challenging the president of Shell Oil, John Hofmeister, to guarantee the prices consumers pay will go down if the oil companies are allowed to drill wherever they want off of U.S. shores.

Obama voters put this imbecile into office.

Black people will vote for a black loud mouthed imbecile over an intelligent white person any day.

As a group, black Americans are extremely racist.

I am convinced that 95% of the members of congress are in the lower 25% of the intelligence bell curve. How can we continually, consistently find so many flipping idiots?

Why are people surprised? Incremental socialism has been occurring in this country for years! Few people have realized what is happening because they are the proverbial frog in the pot of water failing to realize they have been slowly cooking in the socialist stew for a long time.
