    It is for those citizens.

    Not grasping at anything other than your inability to comprehend. I doubt you even own a clock so I wouldn't use that analogy.

    Can't we all just get along. There is no need in attacking the intelligence of anyone here. I bet he does own a clock. and in about a half hour or so the little bird will come out and make noise

    Yup I do have one of those clocks, instead of saying cuckoo it says liberal. There just isn't any difference

    Besides, attacking ones intelligence is what people who have no valid argument do.

    Still having trouble with complete thoughts and sentences I see.

    But if one sells the commodity they own to the world it isn't a tax. For instance. The Bureau of Reclamation owns and operates the electrical generation facilities at Hoover Dam. This electricity is sold to the residents of Arizona, Nevada, and California. Is this a tax a swell. After all, if Alaskans selling thier oil is a tax then the U.S. selling it's electricity must also be a tax.

    Exclamation

    Congress is back in session after its August recess, and debating energy is top priority. House Democrats will propose an energy bill that will include an expansion of offshore drilling, the item that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-OPEC) once regarded as a nonstarter to energy legislation. The bill will also include a “use it or lose it” provision to encourage oil companies to use the drilling leases they already have or return them to the public. Other provisions call for government oil-lease royalties to be invested in alternative energy technology and for tapping the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. However, lest readers think Democrats are caving, the bill would retain the ban on offshore drilling within 50 miles of the coast if a state enacts such legislation or 100 miles if not, effectively keeping 18 billion barrels of oil and natural gas off limits. The bill would also rescind tax breaks for “Big Oil” and require oil companies to pay additional royalties for the privilege of drilling. That money would then be redistributed for renewable energy development.

    A bill has been introduced in the House to repeal the District of Columbia’s ability to write its own gun laws, in deference to the recent Supreme Court ruling that found the District’s gun laws unconstitutional. According to The Washington Post, the bill would “repeal the D.C. ban on semiautomatic pistols and rifles; eliminate the city’s gun registration requirements; allow D.C. residents to purchase firearms in Virginia and Maryland; and abolish the regulation that guns at home be unloaded and safeguarded.” The Democrat leadership hoped to avoid handing the Republicans such a resounding legislative victory this close to the election, but at least 48 Demos support the new law because they represent districts that favor Second Amendment rights.

    The Democrats have decided to abandon another vote on expanding the Children’s Health Insurance Program before the congressional recess. President Bush twice vetoed the bill because it would have added families to the tax-funded program who were quite capable of funding their own children’s health insurance. Democrats realized that they still do not have enough votes to override a veto, and there is not enough time to muster a fight this close to the recess. They plan to expand the program next year with what they expect to be an enlarged majority.

    Just wondering what kind of excuses the liberals can conjure up to pardon President Downgrade and the Democrats from any responsibility for the present price of fuel, that has doubled since President Zero was sworn into office.

    The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. --Norman Mattoon Thomas, 6 time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America
