WTF? The explosion in Richmond is "usual factors"? Why is it that a single disruption like that can effect price so much?

Ask me if I care. Considering it was an another overblown and mostly manufactured attempt by Fox News and Glenn Beck to gin up unsubstantiated accusations only makes it that more meaningless to me. It was just the beginning of what has become a never ending display of overblown controversies where facts are blurred and distorted, if not flat out lied about from the far right. Supposedly one of the so called "Panthers" had an intense dislike for Obama. Called him a democratic puppet. None of the voters there claimed they were intimidated so what are we talking about? The case should have been dropped. Saved the taxpayers money.
So are you saying you don't care if people get away with intimidation tactics where people go to vote? Places that are supposed to be sacred when it comes to neutrality and the process of democracy?

That's a bit disconcerting.

Obamas are dictating, no good thieves! They are stealing from the senior citizens WHO HAVE PAID into MEDICARE FOR YEARS out of their hard work and putting it into Obamacare where they are cutting the services for seniors and squandering money on such things as freebies for all the ghetto trash in their culture! They pander to the young, know-nothings, high school dropouts and unemployed along with all the illegal aliends who have RUINED OUR SCHOOLS and HEALTH CARE SYSTEM.

Obama needs to pay back to Medicare the trillions he has stolen. He wants to give that money to the lazy losers who haven't paid a dime into it. He knows they are almost as dumb as he is and will say and do anything just to get a vote so he can retain his power and continue to undermine and destroy this country.

Google Michele Obama "all this for a damn flag." Observe carefully the angry evil looks between these two and read their lips. They are traitors who hate this country.

All their supporters are as bad as they are.

Obama hates women. His mother rejected him. That commercial with grandma going over the cliff is a PERFECT EXAMPLE. His white granmother who raised him died mysteriously in Hawaii. Who knew the real circumstances of his birth and life better than she and perhaps the illegal "auntie" stealing from we citizens??? What better reason to "get rid of white grannie who knew too much" and be nice to "auntie" who also knows too much.

Why didn't Obama feature a man going over the cliff in a wheelchair?

What an atrocious ad to put out anyway but I am glad the NASTY CREEP BARACK OBAMA did this as he shows us his true nature! You can be sure that NASTY MOOCHER MARION ROBINSON, MONEY HUNGRY MICHELLE OBAMA and those two females they call their daughters approved of this ad along with WITCH JILL BIDEN.

Witch Biden went on the "View" and gleefully said the campaign was going to get very nasty and this was months ago. She and Michelle Obama have undoubtedly been in cahoots putting out all the nasty comments about Sarah Palin and her family and all the other Republican women.

In a 2008 debate, Charlie Gibson asked Barack Obama about his support for raising capital gains taxes, given the historical record of government losing net revenue as a result. Obama persevered:“Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.”

A most revealing window into our president’s political core: To impose a tax that actually impoverishes our communal bank account (the U.S. Treasury) is ridiculous. It is nothing but punitive. It benefits no one — not the rich, not the poor, not the government. For Obama, however, it brings fairness, which is priceless.

Why Obama's policies fail.

Need more outcomes and less rhetoric and class warfare.

Obama is not working!

Romney doesn't have the balls to do this, so sent Anne to:

In an interview with NBC set to air Thursday, Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said her husband's campaign will not release any additional tax returns to the public ahead of the election.

"We have been very transparent to what's legally required of us," Romney told reporter Natalie Morales, according to excerpts from NBC News. "There's going to be no more tax releases given."

Think it was the corrupt liberal media that necessitated the need for Fox News and the No Spin Zone.

Obama wanted to censor Fox News.

Ronald Reagan on prosperity

Ronald Reagan was “The Great Communicator”– a title that was well-deserved. It wasn’t just his ability to communicate that earned him this title; it was also his understanding of the world and human nature. He understood that real prosperity is the child of opportunity, not shared wealth. His words are as relevant today as they were when he first uttered them, proving there really isn’t anything new under the sun. He eloquently stated:

We have so many people who can’t see a fat man standing beside a thin one without coming to the conclusion that the fat man got that way by taking advantage of the thin one. So they are going to solve all the problems of human misery through government and government planning. Well, now, if government planning and welfare had the answer and they’ve had almost 30 years of it, shouldn’t we expect government to almost read the score to us once in a while? Shouldn’t they be telling us about the decline each year in the number of people needing help? The reduction in the need for public housing?

But the reverse is true. Each year the need grows greater, the program grows greater. We were told four years ago that 17 million people went to bed hungry each night. Well, that was probably true. They were all on a diet. But now we are told that 9.3 million families in this country are poverty-stricken on the basis of earning less than $3,000 a year. Welfare spending is 10 times greater than in the dark depths of the Depression. We are spending $45 billion on welfare. Now do a little arithmetic, and you will find that if we divided the $45 billion up equally among those 9 million poor families, we would be able to give each family $4,600 a year, and this added to their present income should eliminate poverty! Direct aid to the poor, however, is running only about $600 per family. It would seem that someplace there must be some overhead.

So now we declare “war on poverty,” or “you, too, can be a Bobby Baker!” Now, do they honestly expect us to believe that if we add $1 billion to the $45 million we are spending…one more program to the 30-odd we have–and remember, this new program doesn’t replace any, it just duplicates existing programs–do they believe that poverty is suddenly going to disappear by magic? Well, in all fairness I should explain that there is one part of the new program that isn’t duplicated. This is the youth feature. We are now going to solve the dropout problem, juvenile delinquency, by reinstituting something like the old CCC camps, and we are going to put our young people in camps, but again we do some arithmetic, and we find that we are going to spend each year just on room and board for each young person that we help $4,700 a year! We can send them to Harvard for $2,700! Don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting that Harvard is the answer to juvenile delinquency.

When it's not stoked by the far right media....Limbaugh, Beck and Bill O'Reilly come to mind. The two "BPs" were not "armed" in the implied sense (one had a billy club), apparently did not directly threaten voters, were reported to police and charged by Justice Department officials, one remains under court order. The reason more serious charges were dropped by the Justice Department apparently had to do with more than Glenn Beck's opinion. Were they idiots? Yeah. Did they commit a felony?

Once there was a Little Red Hen who lived in a barnyard with a duck, a pig and a cat.

One day a government official visited the barnyard and gave the Little Red Hen some grain, which he had taken from a neighboring barnyard that had plenty.

“Look!” she exclaimed to the other animals, happy to have the grain that the government gave to her.“Who will help me plant this wheat?”

“Not I”, said the duck.

“Not I”, said the pig.

“Not I,” said the cat.

“Then I will plant it myself,” said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

When the wheat was ready to be harvested, the Little Red Hen asked,“Who will help me harvest the wheat?”

“Not I,” said the duck.

“Not I,” said the pig.

“Not I,” said the cat

“Then I will harvest the wheat myself”. And she did.

After the wheat was harvested, the Little Red Hen asked,“Who will help me take the wheat to the miller so he can grind it into flour?”

“Not I,” said the duck.

“Not I,” said the pig.

“Not I,” said the cat.

“Then I will take the wheat to the miller myself,” said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

The miller ground the wheat into flour and gave it to the Little Red Hen.

When she returned to the barnyard, the Little Red Hen asked,“Who will help me make this flour into bread?”

“Not I,” said the duck, the pig and the cat all at once.

“Then I will make the bread myself,” said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

Soon the bread was ready and she took it from the oven. Then the Little Red Hen asked,“Who will help me eat this bread?”

“I will,” said the duck.

“I will,” said the pig.

“I will,” said the cat.

“No you won’t,” said the Little Red Hen.“You wouldn’t help me plant the seeds, cut the wheat, go to the miller, or make the bread. Now, I will eat this bread myself!”

Then the government official came back to the barnyard and said,“You must share with those that don’t have anything to eat. It is the right thing to do.” And she did.

They all ate until all the bread was finished.

After the bread was finished, the government official came back to the barnyard with more grains of wheat that he had taken from another barnyard and asked,“Who will plant this wheat?”

“Not I,” said the duck.

“Not I,” said the pig.

“Not I,” said the cat.

“Not I,” said the Little Red Hen. And she didn’t.

And this, my friends, is why socialism and all the other well-packaged political “isms” just don’t work in the real world. Obama doesn’t understand it. Hopefully, my friends, you will.

RIVIERA BEACH Fla.-- Eighteen people came ashore in Riviera Beach early this morning after traveling on a homemade boat from Cuba, Border Patrol confirms.
The migrants -- 16 men and two women -- landed on Singer Island around 1 a.m., according to Border Patrol. Law enforcement officials arrived at the scene around 2 a.m.
The individuals, all Cubans, were taken to a Riviera Beach immigration processing center.
Border Patrol officials said the homemade fishing boat was 21 feet long and used a Russian car engine from the 1950s. It was also equipped with a makeshift rudder and sail.
The migrants left Cuba last Friday and are all in good health, officials said
