So liberals caused that?
Wed Aug 17, 2011 12:37am

The oil companies couldn't meet their deadlines and it is the fault of the liberals?

I know you want to defend them at all costs, but they're all doing just fine, still making RECORD profits. However they'll still take your sympathy along with it.

    Liberals love excessive regulation, and the oil business if a prime example thereof. You have permits for EXPLORATION, and then permits for pumping. In 1985, or there about, an oil company tracked us ... more

      • As a matter of fact - yes.Lewis, Wed Aug 17 7:23am
        They didn't meet their deadlines because of having to comply with unnecessarily restrictive and complex regulations - put in place by liberals. This country, remember, is actually run more by the... more

      Lewis how bout we just shut em all down, make the unions and demos go broke. It's happening today.
      • Go broke?Lewis, Sun Aug 14 9:51am
        They'll never go broke; they're tapped into the taxpayers' arteries. They'll run the TAXPAYERS broke, of course - in fact, they already have.

          It's as simple as that.
          • Exactly the point.Lewis, Wed Aug 17 7:34am
            Boot their asses out and send them home - about 80% of our swollen government is not only not required by our constitution - most of the surplus is actually unconstitutional and totally unnecessary.
            • Here's how -Lewis, Thu Aug 18 10:52am
              Return to the individual sovereign states the power to do what they're supposed to do. We don't need federal education supervision; that's up to the states. Ditto labor relations. In fact - just... more
            • Sounds like a good planMike, Wed Aug 17 2:42pm
              But it still doesn't solve the problem of not having enough revenue needed to pay for what you've already committed to. A tax increase is necessary. Even a $1.5T cut in the budget will not make it... more

                Previous administrations of BOTH liberals and conservatives have increased (almost doubled) total revenue by REDUCING taxes, not increasing them. When you take money out of the economy for taxes, it... more

                  You're only basing your theory on a period of a phony economic boom. Yes, revenue was up, taxes were low, unemployment was low, but what made it phony was that credit was cheap, risk-free, and... more
                  • Wrong.Lewis, Thu Aug 18 6:45pm
                    What's strangling our economy is not taxes, but the certain THREAT of even more taxes. Nobody is going to hire and take on a payroll obligation that they can't meet - they're going to hoard their... more

                      The uncertainty is due to the market conditions around the world. A tax hike, after a decade of very low taxes, is not going to stall the economy. If are going to correct your spending problem... more
