We are now at the point of watching billionaires use media shows to sell a bankrupt country a third war for war profits for themselves. Rush Limbaugh's radio contract is $500 million, so Hannity's radio contract is a bit less, but not that much less, add in his TV show, so why would he want to make billions more off of a war in Iran? What does he need the money for unless oil is going to run out and only billionaires will be able to go on a plane or have a car, etc. I have never, ever seen greed like this. It did not used to exist, but, if rich people know the world as we know it is about to end, this is the level of greed you see now.
It's like those people on Fox working to not have their taxes raised 3 points, and selling books and making so much money off of poor people while the country collapses. And I can tell you they have their money off of the dollar cause they know the dollar is going to collapse, and they have their money on gold and silver and on commodities and in other countries, while they sell patriotism and apple pie on the TV in order to make 20-50 mil. a year off of people in this country. They have one foot out the door and they're just sitting here raking in the last few years of big huge profits for themselves before the country collapses, they lose nothing, and heck, if they can pull off one more expensive war, they profit even more. This is the crap that is influencing the American people. So oil is definitely running out. That's for sure.
It is not just a "Fox News" thing here. Look at Al Gore, his jets and "Global Warming" (now Climate Change). He makes millions with his hypocritical greed.

Sean Hannity's motive isn't the worlds "oil". He has a show that he needs something to talk about on and wars are good material for his commentaries that he makes a very good living doing.
Of course, all Americans put down reading and learning. Of course. It's sooooo horrible to know one thing or to read one book. yeah right. Hannity makes billions of dollars on the wars. That's why he's selling you a new war. Get a clue.

You really think he sells and sells you a war in Iran and no spending on anything here for any reason other than he makes tons of money off of the wars?? Oh come on.

<quoted text>What do you mean? Bush couldn't have been honest and told people he needed to raise taxes back up to the Clinton levels to pay for the wars and not run up any debt?? Why didn't he do that?? He didn't raise taxes and he did not pay for the wars. He ran up 5 trillion dollars of debt. A conservative would never do that. That took our nation down.
The reason him and Cheney did not raise our taxes to pay for the invasion of Iraq and for the Afghanistan war is because guess what?? If we had to be taxed to pay for these wars, a lot of us would not have wanted the wars. You can only have oil wars if you don't ask the folks to pay for them. It's all good as long as we don't have to pay for stuff. But not the debt has come home to roost. This is what Bush did.
Do you think Ron Paul would have ever run up one cent of debt on this country? You think?

Because the country spun into an instant recession and people needed that money to survive. Raising taxes at that time would have taken billions of dollars out of our economy that we badly needed in it.

His motive is war profiteering. Get a freaking clue, read a book. I'm so sick of stupid dumbed down Americans repeating war profiteer billionaires on TV. It's not my job to educate everyone for free. I should make at least 50 million myself, hell they make that on Fox just lying and selling a third war to a bankrupt country. I'm out of here. There's no one intelligent enough to talk to, as always, it's sooooooo American. There's NO ONE intelligent left in the U.S. That's the truth. This is why Fox runs the U.S. Three guys on TV runs the minds of the people. It's a dumbed down nation. I'm out of here.

So we had no choice but to run up 5 trillion dollars of debt? So why complain about the debt? You make fun of Al Gore. U.S. oil production peaked in 1970. Since 1970, the U.S. has had only two percent of the world's oil reserves. Since 1970 we buy over 60 percent of our oil from other contries. When Clinton left office the combined debt every president ran up since the beginning of this country was less than 5 trillion dollars and we were not borrowing one cent. Bush lowered taxes, spent tons on a new welfare program, free meds for seniors, did 9/11 to get into Iraq to secure the second largest oil field in the world and planned on going into Iran too for their oil. Plus both Iraq and Iran tried to sell oil off of the dollar, on the Euro. That's why Bush did 9/11, so we would all agree to him invading Iraq. He did that to keep all oil sales on the dollar and to secure the second largest oil field in the world for Exxon and BP. Hannity wants to secure all of that oil in Iran now for Exxon and BP cause he owns oil stocks and he has war subcontacting companies so he gets millions in government contracts, and he has a lot of stocks in the big war corporations like Halibuton, whose stocks tripled in value when Cheney gave Haliburton 200 billion in contracts in Iraq. That's why Hannity is selling you a third war, profits for himself. This is who you repeat - pure evil. The guy has yet to offer you one thing. All he says is lower his taxes and have a war in Iran for him to profit off of.

Had Gore gotten into office, you would not have had 9/11, no two wars, no debt, you would have been off of ending oil like all the other countries are doing, he would have created millions of jobs in clean energy, you would no longer have global warming as a problem, we would have been selling solar and wind technologies to other countries, instead China has those markets, not us. Saudi Arabia is building solar panels and they say they want to sell us oil and solar energy now. So we are stuck in the past. Fox tells you hate new energy, hate clean energy, stay on ending oil, lower taxes on the super rich, and have more wars. Does that crap actually sound like something that would help you and why do you people ONLY "learn" stuff from the TV? You are your own worst enemies. When you let billionaire war profiteers tell you what to think and what to say, you get what you deserve. This country would be sitting fat and not in debt had Gore gotten into office. Bush's bullsh!t plan was war after war to stay on ending oil. That is exactly what he did, and this idea that your country goes under from this stuff and he tanks the entire country, the real estate market, the financial sector collapses in total, and you sit and say - "well, Fox says to like it, Fox says to like Bush, Fox says to vote in Repubs and all will be well." Come on already with the TV stuff. Fox told you not to elect Ron Paul so you do what they say.

Who are these people on Fox running the country? Are they economists, politicians, attorneys?? Who are these people?? Radio talk show hacks. this is what happens when people are lazy and let TV run them. What a mess.

THERE AIN'T 'NUFF MILLIONAIRES TO TAX TO GET US OUT OF THIS DEBT MESS, THAT IS INDISPUTABLE FACT. DO THE MATH.

Hear me now and believe me in 15 years when the taxes on YOUR OWN paltry income skyrocket to pay for all this reckless spending and borrowing. Obama will be long gone and likely LHAO. But everyone will be stuck with the tab.

I've just been waiting for two years to get out of here before it collapses. When it collapses, the low IQ morons in this country have NO ability to ever bring this country back and the rich will be gone. All I want is my money off of the dollar, on gold, silver and commodities and in Swiss bank accounts, just like O'Reilly and Hanity and Beck and Palin. I'm not stupid. I'm just stuck here. I don't want to go under in the collapse. I want to move my money out and apply for citizenship in Germany as my mother was from Germany and Germany will be the ONLY country in Europe left standing after the global meltdown, and this country won't be left standing and it's people are dumb and weak people. It has no way to come back after a collapse, IMO.

First off Hannity controls nothing so he is a moot issue. Second, your claim of no 9.11 if gore had won is insane.

Now you tell me smart guy, why hasn't Obama raised taxes and balanced the budget now that the dust has settled, the border is "secure" and the "War on Terror" is over? His job was cleanup man and he told us he could do it but he hasn't. In fact he has made everything he touched worse and caused far more debt doing it.

Anybody but Obama!

Everyone is going to leave in the next two years when the U.S. collapses. People here are loyal to having wars and to getting social security and medicare and government pensions. When those things no longer exist, everyone splits, nationalism goes out the window. I already see people talking about moving elsewhere. The minute the 80 million baby boomers no longer get SS and Medicare, they will all move to other countries.

As long as we can borrow money to pay for wars and for SS and Medicare, those are our big expenses, people will stay here. Once we can no longer borrow money, once we default on the debt, once the dollar collapses, no one is staying on to rebuild. They all leave if they can get out.

What the tea party says is "we are the true patriots, so give us SS and Medicare and the government pensions, spend on us." When the spending is cut off, they won't be patriots any longer. they think being a patriot means not paying for wars, not going in the wars, getting SS, Medicare, Medicaid, state, federal and VA pensions from the government. What they mean by they are patriots is they believe they are the most entitled to the government monies. Wait until the money gets cut off. It will be like Greece, third world and everyone throwing one another under the bus.

Hannity totally controls the people's opinion about having a war in Iran. NO one in their right mind would ever agree to nor support a third war on a bankrupt country if not for Fox selling it and selling it and selling it. If Fox was not saying 1,000 times a day to hate clean new energy sources, no human being would be so out of their mind as to hate clean new energy sources. Fox has people totally brainwashed. they do it by selling hate, get them mad, blame, blame some group, hate some group, hate and fear and blame. They're not telling you anything real. They are controlling the elections and they get the population to agree to a third war. So this very dangerous stuff. WE never in the history of the country had a radio talk show guy on TV selling and selling a nation a war. It's off the charts corruption.
