“The prognosticators and the media predict gas prices north of $5 a gallon and/or war with Iran by next year if the Iranians close the Strait of Hormuz. Yet our so-called government of the people drag their feet on a Canadian pipeline which would do away with our dependence on Middle Eastern oil, create a surge in employment in this country and lower the price of gas at the pump both now and in the future.”

“The proposed Canadian pipeline and shale oil are being decried as if they are actual eco-disasters. I look to the Alaskan pipeline disaster and have to ask, ‘huh?’ ”

“So, the county has made this weekend ‘no-burn’. Does that include fireworks? They can put off as much smoke as a fireplace.”

“My grade for Jon Beydler’s brain: D minus. The only reason you don’t get an ‘F’ is because you were ‘right’ about our debt continuing to rise (which is kind of a no-brainer).”

“If the various factions in Iraq are gearing up to go after each other, there’s probably not much we in the U.S. can do about it. Think about it — insurgents there stopped attacking coalition troops a long time ago. (That’s why the ‘surge’ worked, by the way). They’ve been attacking civilians (church/religious festival bombings, etc.). It’s better that our troops aren’t there to get caught in the crossfire.”

“My hope for the new year is to have fewer Sheeple and Rinos in this country. People, do not follow blindly the liberal media, use  your intelligence and make up your own mind!”

“Funny how Bill Maher respects all religions but Christianity. (Look at his actions not his claims). You can tell how much a true phony he is.”

“Wow, have you folks looked up HBO host Bill Maher’s tweet about the Bronco’s Quarterback, Tim Tebow’s Christian beliefs? If a Republican or conservative ever tweeted something as profane and disgusting as that about the Holocaust, gays or blacks, CNN’S Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, all of MSNBC, 60-Minutes, Frontline, 20/20, every liberal-progressive TV commentator (Fahreed Zakaria, etc) would be screaming bloody-murder.”

“The prognosticators and the media predict gas prices north of $5 a gallon and/or war with Iran by next year if the Iranians close the Strait of Hormuz. Yet our so-called government of the people drag their feet on a Canadian pipeline which would do away with our dependence on middle eastern oil, create a surge in employment in this country and lower the price of gas at the pump both now and in the future.”
