      Edit: He's been trying to pick fights with me for a little while now too. Not sure what his motive it.
      I have no beef with him. Not sure where he is fueling his anger. Maybe it is because I am not a Romney/Obama supporter? Because I like someone else?

      Even so, I still dont have an issue with him. But I guess some Americans cannot comprehend the fact that what divides people in this country is when they cant get over themselves and see that just because you dont agree with someone doesnt mean you have to immediately degrade and berate that individual to try and make them inferior to you. If anything, someone who trys to do that is revealing that they feel inferior to the person they are degrading.

      Real Classy American. If you are trying to pick fights, go pick them with people who care to fight with you.. I dont...

      we are discussing politics no matter how you look at it.
      it's interesting you push your opinion and it's relevant but when someone else has an opposing opinion it somehow has lost focus on the topic.
      but I'm not surprised.

      We don't want OT to become "the politics forum" this election season. It's as simple as that. If you guys can't have an intelligent discussion in here about the presidential election without flaming each then there will be no election discussion in OT. Period.

      even though I'm not a Fan of his (even though I did vote for him in 08) I would not got that far. ALLOT! can happen between now and Nov. and all it take is one 24hr news cycle.

      republicans(voters) are not behind anyone yet even though it's clear who the establishment are behind and it's funny how the voters want something different from what the establishment wants (mainly looking out for themselves)
      With the republicans bashing each other they're doing Obama's dirty work....for free! but at the same time all the dirt is getting and hopefully when a nominee is selected that person and Obama can have real debates on the issues instead of bashing each others character for the rest of the election season.
      but we all know that's probably whats going to happen.

      How about that pipeline?

      Every other politician I have heard was in support of it going through, except Obama, why?

      something to do with Nebraska and the pipeline being rerouted around a fresh water source or something. but it's an election year so it will be used on both sides for political agendas while as usual it's people like us on this forum who get the consequences of there decisions and has no effect on them.

      I do think we should drill more here....however! I think if they're going to do that they also need to make recycling laws more strict, especially with aluminum and plastics. if all recyclable plastics were recycled like they should be you could see a huge difference in oil prices going down over time and in turn gas prices would go down. and it could be profitable to businesses.
      I hate to say this about Americans but we have taken are for granted our convenience with consumption with not using it responsibly (lazy more than anything).
      I'll use my place of employment for an example. We had this huge long container that we only put cardboard in and the company would pay to have it removed and the disposal company did away with it (probably made another profit turning it into a recycle plant.
      now they have this other company who specializes in recyclables that pickup the card board (compacted) and every quarter the company (my work) gets a check.
      it's just getting people to understand what they can do and in turn would actually benefit them and everyone else.

      Those are all good points, I am no environmental whacko either, but I can do a little better by reusing plastic bottles as much as possible. I just use filtered water out of the tap and refill used bottles.

      There are downsides to drawing the pipeline, but they are far outweighed by the dangers of importing oil on vessels. If we can't meet an agreement with Canada, it will be a kick in the nuts of a close Allie, and also a dumb move all around.

      in another thread he (barry2952) stated he pays 29k a yr in health insurance!!
      that must mean he's gotta be very smart to pull a job to pay for that coverage.
      I too know what it's like to have a loved one to be a victim of cancer but she couldn't beat it.
      I wish the best for you and your wife and I hope and pray she can beat it.

      Probably not for a while, to be honest. NC has a late primary and I can't forsee any stops prior to that, but I could be wrong. His last visit to the state was for a Walter Jones fundraiser/bbq held down in Greenville! You missed out, I guess! I had planned to go, but had to cancel last minute.

      To be honest I have been far away from Paul in every aspect with my support for jon. I have recently started studying a bit more on Paul and I do consider myself an independent.

      Romney is trying to appeal to a class that he is so far from, and Gingrich is set up to be a McCain repeat.

      I will support Paul, but I do hope he reclaims some of his statements considering we hold about a quarter of the worlds gold and about a third of the wealth. So the gold standard would be great, but as of now is less than ideal.

      He doesn't want a gold standard if it is mandated by the government. He'd rathter allow the market to dictate what backs money
