If only the GOP knew how to play hardball like this. We’d now be living in a Free Republic!
Burlap or cotton sack?
This means they will get really slapped by the judge with a new order and perhaps a ruling of contempt of court.
The first thing that crossed my mind...as in 'Motion for Contempt' filed by the plaintiffs - soon.
Representative Boner? John McWhatshisname? Olympia Snowe...? In a word, no. They are frightened of Obama and they will not have the courage to stop him...
The job of keeping your boot on the neck just never ends....
Does this mean Obama is going to demand that Brazil stop their offshore drilling he gave them 10 billion dollars for?
No. Companies that are shut down will not let equipment sit idle. They will move the gulf equipment to Brazil and we will never see them or the jobs they provided again. Somewhere Soros is smiling.
Besides, Putin is a manly man and Obama is a girly girl.
“I hope anyone who voted for this walking insult of a President are now, totally awake.”
IMHO, those that sit out elections because the candidate is not pure enough and allow the Democrats to control the Congress are enablers and are as much a cause of this mess as the Democrats. When you don’t take sides both sides hate you.
The general attitude in LA is we hope you like freezing this winter because we don’t care. We didn’t put him in office. We voted for the other guy as bad as he was. And the reason he’s around is the same reason O is around.
“Burlap or cotton sack?”
That is so Jack Bauer!
“The question must shift to what are we going to do about it. Saying no fair is not going to matter to these people, and their media will cover for them and demonize anybody questioning the why.”
A couple of incidents come to mind:
“When in the course of human events.....”
It's past time IMO. I think others feel the same way but are just waiting to see the results of the November elections.
Maybe the Administration should just present “the further advance of the Progressive agenda, which includes placing more restrictive controls on the free marketplace aimed at destroying Capitalism” as their justification for the moratorium.
How about 'just thinking about them makes my stomach churn and I must REGURGITATE and gag and gag, and gag MORE - and then VOMIT - (and think of all the weight we could all lose - just thinking about them!)
In theory you are correct. To issue another moratorium would indeed be contempt.. As in, “Yeah we heard you but we’re above the law so take THIS!” Never has the term “War over oil” been so appropriate, except this time it’s the American Gov’t vs. Americans.
you was not a personal you.
I caught a few minutes of Rush today. He said the appeal will be before the 5th Circuit, which is scheduled to go on vacation. Rush wasn’t aware how long that vacation would be.
Stop & think about just how silly that sounds.
He represents US. The office is much bigger than one man.
And its MUCH bigger than this man.
This douchebag really thinks hes somebody special, doesnt he?
This douchebag really thinks hes somebody special, doesnt he?
Never ever make a CoonAss mad!!!,,,
O’Bammy et al have now pissed off most folks in Louisiana.
Never ever pull on Cocodrie’s tail,,,
If we start crankin’ down the big valves and shutin' down
“Well, also that Putin doesn’t throw a ball like a limp-wristed sissy, “
Putin is macho. Obama is metrosexual.
I am not a big fan of Putin, don’t get me wrong. I just acknowledge that he is actually trying to build up his country. Unlike our current president, who couldn’t be doing much more damage than he already is, from the war to the economy to social policy.
Has anybody checked this donk’s papers?
Imagine if they were this diligent about securing the borders.
2 billion, per Glenn Beck, not small potatoes either by any stretch of the imagination...
Agree. . .now we are facing - among other grave threats per Obama - the re-creation of our political electorate by Executive 'fiat'. And whether by those, 'too late smart' or just 'forever stupid'; America's damnation will move forward by by Obama.
And the 'man who would be King' may become, just that.
It's heating up pretty good down the bayou (Larose, Golden Meadow, Morgan City, Houma etc.). Those boys are getting more miffed by the day.
Buddies of mine who work for a big wireline company have already been told in a round about way that if they want their jobs, overseas may be their only option.
And how stupid were some freepers who voted McPain/Palin?? We need another Reagan already.
Tor is your friend!
Not near as stupid as the fence sitters that think time stands still.
No means no, except when you are the Lightworker Messiah.
The last gun show I went to was a few months ago,,,
Folks were pissed then,,,
All the talk was about O’Bammy,,,
Another one will be held in a few weeks,,,
I can't wait,,,
He has commited Causis Belli against the State of Louisiana!
It's directly out of Atlas Shrugged, Cloward and Piven on steroids. The President creates a shortage of oil here while financing drilling in Brazil, who will be so happy to sell us their oil so we don't have to buy it from those awful Saudis, while socialist Petrobras investor George Soros rakes in the cash and the rest of us pay $10 for a gallon of gas.
Think Ken Salazar is in on the plan, or is he really that stupid?
This is so cool. The lefties have just been bitch slapped and their coming right back for more. There is no logical, engineering or ecological reason to stop drilling in the Gulf. All Salazar is doing is providing another opportunity for this judge to shine light on the commies in the WH.
Which is why why the man, who would be President, imagines himself 'KING". . . And now, is determined, that we imagine the same.
Ken Salazar, the Frito-Bandido of the Interior Dept, obviously WANTS America held hostage to the Middle East.
Salazar, “If needed, we’ll blow up a couple more wells” “That will teach you ignorant peons not to mess with us!”
The rise will not happen that fast.
This order does not shut down existing production, only drilling of new wells.
It will damage our domestic industry for a decade with the impact of lost jobs. But the flow of oil will hardly change at all over the next few months. The production impact is more long term.
Ignore bambi and his fellow thugs.
Ignore them and do the right thing.
How long will it take before the people of the Gulf march on Washington over this planned destruction of their way of life.
“And the ‘man who would be King’ may become, just that.”
O is Jack in “Lord of the Flies.” Hopefully someone will come along to rescue us as we seem to be losing our way.
The history of African self-rule tells the tale of the ability and the outcome of this man to be President. Poor and failed.
But... Americans as a whole tend to have a gnat-like attention span and will forget all this very quickly.
So, um, just like EVERY YEAR AT THIS TIME?
I am so tired of people who don’t understand supply and demand. I fight this battle every damn summer.
Putin has something Obama doesn’t have... competence.
Thanks for your reply. Somehow I don't think this Judge is going to take too kindly with their issuing another ban. You'd think that whatever additional facts they have to support their viewpoint should have been included in their argument in the first place, or at least should be used in their appeal. I don't think issuing a whole new ban is going to go over very well. This morning, I see Drudge is reporting that the government shut down the dredging for the sand berms. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department wants them to move them 2 miles farther out. What good they'll do all the way out there is beyond me.
He’s one of the “Blue Dogs” who won by tricking the electorate. It didn’t help that the R’s in Co ran a drug pushing RINO who wants to set the drinking age at 16.
