State Department's Keystone XL Analysis Upsets Environmentalists

State Department's Keystone XL Analysis Upsets Environmentalists

“Just another money deal here. We have enough of our own oil here in our country for our requirements. We need to stop being lied to by these politicians and other money people to think that there is a problem with supply and that the world is going to be destroyed because of oil. As far as I am concerned, let the rest of the world go south and worry about us and our LEGAL citizens.”

Quitting Smoking: 10 Reasons That Have Nothing To Do With Your Lungs

“I still have the same question that no one can answer. "How do you explain the man or woman that smoked their first cigarette at the age of 10, and smoked their whole life and died of "NATURAL CAUSES". There are countless examples of what I just said. Quit LYING, and trying to CONTROL people. If you don't smoke and do not like people that smoke, STAY AWAY FROM US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.”

“I also know many who smoked and lived a very long healthy life. The propaganda is designed to capture the tax dollar.”

“It's very rare, and good genes. That's the simple answer. Most people are like my aunt, lugging around an oxygen tank @ the age of 60 because after 40+ years of smoking she couldn't breathe.

A 6 year ex-smoker and very happy....”

“Natural Causes? This isn't a murder investigation, ailments such as cancer and emphysema are natural causes. It happens, some people don't get smoke related illnesses even though they smoked all their lives. You can play the odds and choose to smoke but other people shouldn't have to suffer because of your choice.”

“Holy crap and Jesus Christ!!! Good points that I don't think I could have delivered any more potent of an intensity.”

“Your smoke drifts.. Let me tell you something..My mother in law died of emphesema,my wifes step mother died from the same thing, my friends mother in law died from emphesema,my brother died from lung cancer, all heavy smokers. It's a terrible way to die. suffocating. They had to take laxatives all the time cause they didn't have the breath to strain.For those that live through it they can thank their lucky genes. But they are really the exception. I begged my brother to quit for years even when he first started symptoms. He would get mad. Believe me you do not want to experience this. Quit while you can. Maybe you will quit in time and your lungs will heal.”

“I am sorry but you are nuts talking about cutting the military. That will accomplish exactly what obama wants, make us extremely vulnurable, so we can be taken over by muslims easier.”

“You must be a youngster, that hasn't reached the poverty and medical trouble we seniors have. I hope you get some sense someday, if you love him so much why dont you absorb all of the debt that this country has by foolish spending and fraud like solyndra and we will all be much better off.”

“I am 63 and would LIKE to have Medicare available when I am eligible. Respect more accurately describes my feelings toward the President than "love." I have been watching America's debt grow all my life. I think it was at its greatest vis a vis GDP the year I was born: 1949, because of the war. I have also seen tax rates go up and down vis a vis wars UNTIL the Bush/GOP deficits don't matter regime. Solyndra took advantage of Bush era alternative energy subsidies and loans, but it failed probably because they put too much of the money into a fancy schmancy building down in silicone valley. But their technology was and is sound. Now, let's talk about what you and I might have in common: Balancing our spending and taxing in a fair way that will NOT interrupt our steady economic growth. Preventing the same unregulated scams that brought down our financial systems. Coming to grips with the fact that many investment portfolios have increased but paychecks for working people have not. That has been the greatest redistribution of wealth we have. And, the 1% are hoarding trillions of dollars that need to be circulating in our economy, either through taxes, dividends or higher wages for the working people.”

“Yes obana is going to spend more time out of washington, the golf games he plays in are not all located in washington. I am a veteran and I stopped flying my flag shortly after he got in office.

All of those empty promises he made and did not complete. He only wasted time blaming someone else for the problem instead of addressing the problem.

If that is the kind of president we have in this country, I want nothing to do with it. Everyone have a great day in our new society that obama is responsible for, aka; united musilum states of america.”

“Stop flying your flag? Why don't you leave?”

ApplePie33 on Nov 14, 2012 at 12:38:10

“I think the overall key to your statement is the fact that you stopped flying your flag shortly after he was elected. So, it wasn't his policies that offended you. Gee, what could it have been?”

“Sad - he will somehow make the Republicans out to be the bad guys. These elected "servants" ALL know the truth, but speak only for votes.”

“One more thing....Mike Partain has an email address that you can get info from. I have spoken to him on the phone. He is a very nice man to talk to. Do a search for Camp Lejeune Water, and you can get info on contacting him.”

“Former military personell are not permitted, by federal law, to file a lawsuit against the military. Your dependents that were there, if any, can. The only recourse you have is to file a VA claim and wait for them to decide, which will take years.

DO NOT waste time asking anybody at your local VA hospital. I have tried at 2 of them, and all you get is the proverbial "dear in headlight look".”
