    To carry over a thread about defining conservativism

    I believe government should apply these basic principles to Public Safety/Defense and Infrastructure… and that’s about it.

    Lots of questions…
    Public Safety? How much? Police, fire department. How about DSHS? Is it public safety to take a kid out of an abusive household? Where does the kid go once you have taken them out of the home? Does your world view have a government agency trying to make sure old folks homes are safe? Do you want a government agency to try to make sure that our food is safe, our water is drinkable, and our toys and drugs are not poisoned? If the government doesn’t do it, who does?
    You don’t want to pay for public schools. Do you believe that an informed electorate is part of our democracy? If the parents don’t have the money or the brains to educate their kids, are the kids out of luck? How do you get kids out of that cycle of ignorance, once it starts? Do you bother?
    Should the government be involved in environmental issues at all? Should the government regulate banks at all? Is the 1700s and their private banks a better model?
    Should the government pay for the courts system? How about copy right and intellectual property protection, child labor laws, age discrimination in the workplace, or car safety rules, should the government be involved in those issues at all?
    What about land disputes and water rights? who governs them? anyone?
    How about Net Neutrality?

    Don’t know about all your questions, but…

    I believe government should apply these basic principles to Public Safety/Defense and Infrastructure… and that’s about it.

    If this statement defines conservativism then the current administration fails miserably on all three principles.

    In another thread rhp6033 farted:

    The best the Republicans can hope for in November is that American voters have a very, very, very short memory.

    They are hoping gas prices will go down to $3.25 a gallon by late summer, blah blah, blah…

    While rhp6033, follows the Pelletizer method of trying to make a worthless point, Puddy Remembers what The Donkey say.

    PuddyFact: April 2006: ““Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.” – http://www.house.gov/pelosi/pr.....stamp.html

    PuddyRetort: more BULLSHITTIUM from the Donkey…Somehow the plan is missing in action. Or, she didn’t think people with a brain would remember what a Donkey says, since most of the time it’s insignificant psychobabble.

    @ 4

    So, Democrats grossly underestimated our President’s ability to completely fuck up the economy. And this is supposed to help Republicans get elected…how?

    ByeByeGOP spews:

    I think George Bush is the best example of republican stupidity we will ever be forced to endure. When we take a super majority in Congress and take over the White House in the next election, we should take Rove-like steps to quash dissent in the GOP and relegate them to spending their time deciding which of their members we lock up first. Man I can’t wait. Then we start the hunt. Looking for GOP traitors; house by house! Justice is coming asswipes. Run and hide while you still can.

    YellowPup spews:

    This ad makes it sound like we involved ourselves in someone else’s civil war, as though the civil war was already there and we just “got involved.” But we invaded Iraq, we started this second war for whatever reasons. The civil war didn’t start until after the invasion and after we messed up the occupation.

    The issue isn’t our involvement in someone else’s civil war, but how best to help fix the mess that we created, or whether there is anything we can do to “help” at this point, given what we’ve already done there.

    So, Puddy, are you suggesting that the GOP members of the Senate would have ever let a Democratic plan for investigating oil company price-fixing to ever get to a vote?

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Why Our Economy Is A Mess And Nobody Else’s Is

    “The Trillion Dollar Meltdown by Charles R. Morris deserves a spot on any bedside reading table. …

    “Morris puts to rest any lingering notion that the credit crisis reflects merely an inflated housing market, let alone a simple subprime problem. …

    “In essence, Morris traces America’s credit madness to the rise of Chicago School free-market capitalism, best represented in the work of late Nobel laureate Milton Friedman.

    “That ideology supplanted Keynesian liberalism, which gave government a key role in achieving low inflation, low unemployment, and fast economic growth. …

    “‘The current conservative, free-market cycle … seems to have long since foundered in the oily seas of gross excess,’ writes Morris. …

    “Morris manages in a mere 194 pages to explicate the forces behind the origins and popping of the credit bubble and other recent market manias, the decline in the value of the dollar, and the emergence of sovereign wealth.

    “He also takes a stab at what might come next: a long-term decline of the U.S. economy, especially if political leaders and financial elites try to mask how deep the credit crisis runs … Morris anticipates a nerve-wracking denouement.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: The current travails of the U.S. economy are not a product of global forces. If they were, every other economy would be in the toilet along with ours — but they’re not. Whatever is pulling down the U.S. economy is unique to us. Let’s see … what could that be?

    The Bush administration and its slavish belief in the ideology of laissez-faire capitalim.

    Repubs experimented with deregulation and it didn’t work. It’s time to re-regulate the economy. For that job, you need to hire the Democrats, because Republicans know nothing about making capitalism work.

    @4 – Actually the whole Pelosi plan has been something that has been on many minds as gas prices have continued to climb at record pace over the past year. I have actually heard from many people questioning where this plan has been for 2 years. Seems if there was a “commonsense plan” as was stated in April 2006, it would have already been enacted over this past year.

    You folks are so certain that Bush is a dumb ass, stupid Republican. As if there were some monopoly of stupidity in the GOP.

    Let me give you some insight into the future. The radicals have failed. They could not even field a competitive candidate. Rational Republicans will return and will win back the Senate if the Dimocrats become doctrinaire.

    You guys wanna loose? Impliment litmus tests like we did.

    Now that FlipFlop McCain has stupidly admitted that the war in Iraq is ALL about the oil, here’s the question. Was it worth it righties? Trillions in taxes – thousands dead and wounded – and oh yes, on our way to $5 per gallon gas. You fuckheads blew this like you blow everything else!

    SeattleJew spews:

    Gas plans are giving me gas.

    look at Hillary’s “plan.” For 90 days she would transfer the gas tax from the cnsumer to the oil companies. I suppose she would then try price controls to assure that the tax did not get passed on to the consumer (or course with the addition of a margin for the oil company).

    Isn’t this gthe old rotating credit cards trick?

    BTW … if you look at her so much touted health care plan there is a similar gimmick, She owuld pay the costs out of FICA. Has anyboidy heard GOOD news smeplace about the existing social security and mediucare trust funds?

    So Clinton logic is we INCREASE thhe burden on the least stable part of our tax system?

    Her plan gets worse. The plan only works if (heh heh) the existing private providers are willing to insure ALL Americans, including those now excluded because they cost more AND do so w/o raising prices.

    If you believe any of this you are a fool.

    Clinton is not alone in this pandering. Both she and Obama have lied about their plans in Iraq. Neither one s likley t do the Kucinich trip or keep their promises abut withdrawal. Hillary, to be consistent with fdamily tradition, has suggested she will redefine “withdrawl” by keeping needed troops in certain places in Iraq and deployiong the rest on thje bordefrs to threaten Syria and Iran.

    Obama’s lie is harder to parse, I have n idea how he is vgoing to handle gt but maybe kt will be like the Rev Wright affair .. he will say gthat he has learned more and now ….

    Whatever Happened to “Common Cause?”

    rememeber these guys?? .. they go back to Nixn times and describe themselves as a non partisan group commited to honesty in campaigning.

    We need CC NOW!

    CC still exists,sort of, on the web but their activities seem to have degenerated into beureaucratic support for the Federal Election Commitee.

    What a waste! We need some credible, impartial, authority to call horseshit when campaigns drop turds on the road to elections.

    If anything, the demise of the MSM means we have a vastly increased need for something that is seen as fair but willing to call a turd a turd.

    Unfortunately, HA can only do this under the taint of partisanship. As for the media, when they do decide to report on horse turds, the talking heads make sure to balance the red turds and the blue turds, even if only one party’s equine is diaper free.

    So how the hell did we get here? Why can’t the nice folks at CC figure out how to use the web? Is there an EFFECTIVE, CREDIBLE site doing what CC is supposed to do?

    “BULLSHIT.”

    You can run around outside naked screaming that at the top of your lungs if you’d like. It’s not going to change the facts.

    And, among those facts is the fact that no party controls Congress unless they have a filibuster-proof majority. The folks who wrote up the Constitution rather designed it that way.

    This is basic high school social studies, which really leaves the rest of us to wonder just how did you manage to not learn something so basic to our government?

    Must be that private school education, again.

    Don Joe spews:

    @ 45

    When Puddy spews “facts”, you can rest assured that he is, at best, spewing only half of the facts.

    This latest diversionary tactic by Republicans is particularly juicy. We’re supposed to ignore the laws that the House has passed (why? I don’t know. Perhaps because the bills that have passed didn’t have the word “commonsense” in the title? Republicans can be rather dense), and we’re also supposed to ignore the undeniable fact that much of the mess we’re in now is due to the policies of the current Republican executive.

    You’ll notice that Puddy has not answered my question, thereby proving that this is all just a diversion. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

    "Hannah" spews:

    Don Joe, so if this bill had been denied, why didn’t Pelosi raise all holy hell about the GOP calling her on the carpet?????

    I can’t stand her and wish another dem would take her place, the price gouging investigation HR 1252 has nothing to do with lowering gas prices, but instead the federal government would fine the gas companies and we, the consumer, would never see a dime. How many “price gouging investigations” has the state of washington done? And found NOTHING! So it’s a waste of time, it will NOT lower gas prices as promised in 2006!

    Looking into price gouging is a waste of time and tax payer $$$…the way Pelosi made it sound is 2006 was she was going to “rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels”

    The states that have investigated price gouging on their own founf NONE! And the production of alternative fuel is part to blame for skyrocketing food prices.

    Why, on earth, did you think I was referring to a link I just posted? Clearly you didn’t follow the links that Puddy posted, and clearly you didn’t do even a modicum of research.

    And, my dear, the only one screaming here, is you.

    @ 59

    “Don Joe, so if this bill had been denied, why didn’t Pelosi raise all holy hell about the GOP calling her on the carpet?????”

    Why should she waste her time calling out the GOP on what is obviously, and transparently, a diversionary tactic? It speaks for itself. The Republicans have shat all over the place, and now they want to blame the Democrats for not getting rid of the stink quickly enough.

    Frankly, I think the fact that you cant stand Pelosi is distorting your perceptions of what’s going on here.

  57. 63

    Don Joe spews:

    “The states that have investigated price gouging on their own founf NONE! And the production of alternative fuel is part to blame for skyrocketing food prices.”

    First, there are limitations on the scope of the investigations that state attorney generals can conduct. In particular, investigating issues at the wholesale level tend to be just a tad beyond their reach.

    Second, want to guess who that leaves to actually conduct an investigation?

  58. 64

    "Hannah" spews:

    Well the fact is she never did submit this “plan”…the one regarding price gouging has yet to be tabled, still going thru the process. But nothing else has happened and instead they are wasting time & $$ looking into price gouging when even in our state, we have been told their is NO evidence of it!

    Bottom line, the plan discussed in April 2006 still has not been produced. Kinda like McCain’s healthcare plan!

  59. 65

    "Hannah" spews:

    So when Gregoire asked McKenna to investigate price gouging here, was she just wasting tax payer money since ” there are limitations on the scope of the investigations that state attorney generals can conduct. In particular, investigating issues at the wholesale level tend to be just a tad beyond their reach.”?

    re 64: Who looked for the evidence? Where are the results of the study?

    Is it like a study by Liggett & Myers finding that tobacco is not addictive and doesn’t cause cancer?

    Hmmm… – Did anyone see how they are bringing down skyrocketing gas prices

    Hmmm… – Did anyone see how they are rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies

    Hmmm… – Did anyone see how they are rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies

    Hmmm… – Did anyone see how they are ending tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies

    Do oil companies set the price of oil?
    – If they do how does OPEC survive?
    – If they don’t, the what does the New York Mercantile Exchange (Nymex) have to do with it?
    – If you agree Nymex plays with the price, who are these people? Well since they work in lower Manhattan I wonder how far they commute to work? Since they either live in NY, NJ or Conn and each of these locations are very blue donkey… your own people are screwing the US and you fools (headless as #1) are blaming the wrong crowd.

    I say disband it and allow local communities to decide how to attack their problems. My preference is faith-based…
    Allowing the LEFTIST PINHEADED KLOWNS to tackle this has only lead to high-paid, high State benefit careers. A form of Welfare in giving jobs to many incompetents to help others in need. Unnecessary.

    2) A bureaucracy to help “make sure old folks homes are safe”????? Are you kidding me!
    Blue John…you are such a KLOWN.

    4) Court System is part of the Public Safety infrastructure. So are prisons. HOWEVER, I believe prisoners should be put to work more than they are now to pay for their room & board. No frills prisons and chain gangs!!

    5) In general, our legal system has expanded so far into making sure our world is perfect& fair that it has become counter-productive and paralyzed many businesses ability to function…creating excessive costly overhead.

    6) Water—infrastructure

    7) Property disputes—many caused by excessive regulation.

    Once again clueless idiot doesn’t read the thread entries.

    http://www.breitbart.com/artic....._article=1

    ” PHOENIX (AP) – Republican John McCain was forced to clarify his comments Friday suggesting the Iraq war involved U.S. reliance on foreign oil. He said he was talking about the first Gulf War and not the current conflict. At issue was a comment he made at a town hall-style meeting Friday morning in Denver.

    “My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East,” McCain said.

    The expected GOP nominee sought to clarify his comments later, after his campaign plane landed in Phoenix. He said he didn’t mean the U.S. went to war in Iraq five years ago over oil.

    “No, no, I was talking about that we had fought the Gulf War for several reasons,” McCain told reporters.

    One reason was Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, he said. “But also we didn’t want him to have control over the oil, and that part of the world is critical to us because of our dependency on foreign oil, and it’s more important than any other part of the world,” he said.

    “If the word `again’ was misconstrued, I want us to remove our dependency on foreign oil for national security reasons, and that’s all I mean,” McCain said.

    “The Congressional Record is very clear: I said we went to war in Iraq because of weapons of mass destruction,” he said.

    McCain is a staunch supporter of the Iraq war, although he criticizes the early handling of it by the Bush administration.

    His support for the war has drawn attacks from the Democratic Party, and on Friday, McCain defended himself against television ads that accuse him of advocating a 100-year war in Iraq.

    The ads, run by the Democratic National Committee and the liberal group MoveOn.org., tie McCain to President Bush and cite McCain’s comments that there could be an American military presence in Iraq for 100 years.

    “One hundred years in Iraq? And you thought no one could be worse than George Bush,” an announcer says in the most recent ad, run by MoveOn.org.

    McCain brought up the commercials in Denver, saying they are lies. He doesn’t deny saying “100 years” in connection with U.S. military operations in Iraq. But he said he was clearly referring to a possible peacekeeping force and not a centurylong war, as critics imply.

    “You have seen an ad campaign that is mounted against me that says I wanted to stay and fight in Iraq and fight for 100 years,” McCain told about 300 people at the Robert E. Loup Jewish Community Center.

    “My friends, it’s a direct falsification, and I’m sorry that political campaigns have to deteriorate in this fashion,” McCain said. “Because there’s legitimate differences between myself and Senator Obama and Senator Clinton on what we should do in Iraq.”

    The Democratic presidential candidates want to set a date for withdrawal from Iraq, which McCain argues would lead to chaos and genocide in the Middle East.

    “After we win the war in Iraq, and we are succeeding—and it’s long and hard and tough, with enormous sacrifices—then I’m talking about a security arrangement that may or may not be the same kind of thing we had with Korea after the Korean war was over,” he said.

    At issue is McCain’s answer, in January, to a question about Bush’s theory that troops could be in Iraq for 50 years.

    McCain said: “Maybe 100. As long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed, that’d be fine with me, and I hope it would be fine with you, if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where al-Qaida is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day.” “

    Just released by Rasmussen–
    Looks like O-blah-blah is in free-fall!!!

    “Saturday, May 03, 2008
    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Hillary Clinton and John McCain essentially tied—Clinton attracts 45% of the vote while McCain earns 44%. At the same time, McCain leads Barack Obama 48% to 43% (see recent daily results). This has been a difficult week for Obama. When the week began, he was even with McCain and outperformed Clinton in general election match-ups.

    In the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination, it’s Clinton 47% Obama 44%. That’s the third straight day that Clinton has held a slight edge over Obama (see recent Democratic Nomination results). Last Monday, Obama led by eight percentage points. Tracking results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time. Today, at noon Eastern, Rasmussen Reports will release new polling data for the Oregon Presidential Primary.

    Democrats are divided when it comes to the relationship between Barack Obama and his former Pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Just 18% of Clinton voters believe Obama was surprised by the content of Wright’s remarks. Sixty-six percent (66%) of Obama supporters believe their candidate was surprised. Seventy percent (70%) of Clinton supporters believe it’s likely that Obama shares some of Wright’s controversial views about the United States. Only 17% of Obama supporters think it’s likely that he shares those views. Ten percent (10%) of Clinton supporters believe that Obama was truly outraged by Wright’s comments. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Obama supporters believe their candidate was outraged.

    Nationally, 56% of all voters say it’s at least somewhat likely that Obama shares some of Wright’s controversial views.”

    He still could. By appoligizing to the good Reverend for abandoning him in his time of need.

I can’t find anything that shows the senate has voted yes/no yet on this bill….and why did it take til February 12, 2008 for a bill to brought forth? We have had skyrocketing gas prices for over a year now…..

    Where are they looking into price gouging? Record profits, yes! But I would think part of record profits comes with record oil consumption as it has risen worldwide. Just like if I sold product A for years to 100,000 people my profits would be ex. 25k but if this tear I sold same product A to 500,000 people I would have record profits to myself of 125k. The more I sell, the more profit.

    "Hannah" spews:

    Found this explaination of oil profits, yes once again, the more you sell (demand) the more you make (profit)

    “For starters, many average Americans who hold stock in the oil companies, either directly or indirectly through their 401k or mutual fund. But the fact is, the gross profit margin for a gallon of gas in America today, is what it has always been, on average, .08 cents per gallon, (2.5% at $3.00 per gallon). Though retail gas prices fluctuate with crude prices and supply vs. demand, the gross profit margin per gallon remains roughly the same at all times. (No evidence of price gouging here.)

    However the federal government profits approximately .59 cents per gallon through gasoline taxes, 7 ½ times or 750% that of the oil producers themselves and 20% of the price at the pumps. “

  89. 99

    "Hannah" spews:

    Every single site I find via google says the oil profit per gallon is from 8 to 10 cents. So let’s go high and say 20 cents per gallon profit….so they cut their profit by 50%, that saves us consumers 10 cents a gallon…whoo hoo….yeah that will lower the prices drastically.

    What would be a respectable profit percentage for the oil companies? 2%, 5%, 10% ….

    How fucking stupid are you?

    The Bush regime has close ties to the oil business. Hell Baby Bush was in the oil business until his superior management skills led to him bankrupting the company. And of course we know Dickless Cheney’s ties to Big Oil are significant. Tell me again then what incentive these assholes have to get gas prices down?

    BBG It’s not the oil companies posting that they only make 8-10 cents you fool, its the economist and financial gurus after years of study…or is it all a vast conspiracy? So even back when Clinton was pres they were making an average of 10-15% profit…was that gouging then? No because price of oil was cheaper as demand was down. Microsoft profits are approx 33%…is that gouging for Vista? Coca Cola profits average approx 24%, is that gouging for soda?

  92. 102

    headless lucy spews:

    re 99: Then the only explanation, Hannah, for the increased profit is that they are selling more gallons of gas, which cannot be true because production is down because of Bush’s fiat that the strategic oil reserve be increased, thereby, tying up limited storage space, and the fact that there is no increase in production in the U.S. due to the fact that no new refineries have been built since the unprecedented increase in oil company profit.

    Puddybud can go on off topic about oil prices – but record profits (a record for ANY corporation in two of the last three years – more than Microsoft in it’s heyday) speak for themselves – time to bring back the windfall profits tax.

    Just to set the record straight it was Jimmy Carter and a democratic congress that set up the windfall profits tax – guess who signed the repeal? Yup – Ronald (break the budget) Reagan – anything for the coporate sponsors….the republicans have long been in bed with the oil industry and the car industry – that is why bush is suppressing state’s rights and blocking the CAFE standards to clean up california air (by the way, inner city kids in California cities suffer the highest rates of asthma) – bush even ignored his own EPA scientists on this one.

    Incorrectstillwrong: You also like your brother the clueless idiot didn’t read the rest of the seattle times article.

    Without looking it up correctnotright when did Reichert become Sheriff?

    Without looking it up correctnotright , who was Reichert’s boss during the Green River killings?

    Without looking it up correctnotright what was missing from their investigation?

    Without looking it up correctnotright how many lie detector tests did non-sheriff Reichert give Gary Ridgway?

    Without looking it up correctnotright how did they catch Gary Ridgway?

    Regarding the cronyism, hmmm… as I remember there are quite a few complaints regarding “cronyism” before he became sheriff correctnotright.

    Now if correctnotright discussed conduct unbecoming an officer – I’ll be standing next to him on that one.

    See liberals, I did my Puddystudy.

    And what was your pathetically stupid point – that the margin on gas is less than google’s ads? So what – Exxon has made more than any company in history in two of the last three years. In the meantime – oil prices have hit a record high. They are profiting off of us – period. Are you so dense you can’t get that simple fact?

      
    So what if they are profiting off me. They have a product I choose to use. If the time comes I don’t like it I’ll stop using their product.
    Why don’t you try it, it’s called pro-choice. Be a man and make the choice you can live with. You anger is a secondary emotion, what is the emotion you are feeling deep inside you? Feeling rather helpless to take control of your own life? Feeling hopeless that you are unable to even change your own habits, let alone those of us trolls?
      
    Since it bothers you so much stop using the stuff. If you complain you can’t stop, well, admit you got a problem and join gas guzzlers anonymous.

    Above incorrectnottobright wrote: “bush is suppressing state’s rights and blocking the CAFE standards to clean up california air”

    Why do you tell such bald face lies?

    California and seventeen other states want some new rules to help them fight global warming. Unfortunately they can’t set federal standards, only the EPA can. That was the impetus.

    The EPA never before rejected a request from California to set tougher air pollution standards before this one which is politically motivated. This time incorrectnottobright its different because they are trying to effect climate change in their state. We all know from the IPCC (IIPC?) is a global problem – right? You used them before for your worthless global warming arguments.

    Such a damned liar you are mostlyincorrectandnottobright.

    Again veryincorrectnottobright – do oil companies set the price of oil or do the lefties at NYMEX? And who gets over 50% of any oil price?

    Hannah knows the answer. She more than you do veryincorrectnottobright because she now researches the truth before spouting off.

    Don’t worry, I won’t wait for your answer. I’m going to bed.
