I tend to agree. I see threads like this one a lot, where one side thinks the other is loaded with people cheering for economic failure, and act as if a bad economy does not adversely affect them too.

Please cite where "every time the number of home foreclosures increases, the Democrats are shaking pom poms and doing cartwheels, crediting Obama with saving America from the evil Republicans."

Otherwise, it's we'll just chalk this up to another strawman claim.

The only good news swooners want is to see more of our energy sector destroyed. It has to be that way since they are all in supporting all of the great orator's actions. The quest to force "green energy" onto the consumers no matter what the cost to those consumers swooners don't care one bit. Every dollar those consumers have to pay more for energy that can be produced cheaper is a dollar that could be spent elsewhere. But co2 is gonna kill us all. Idiots.

First, define "Energy Sector". What encompasses energy sector?

We will eventually get to the idiots who would rather live in a CO2 chamber.

If you need a definition then your farther gone than I thought. I suggest you pay attention to the myriad of threads on this very board on the subject. Until then continue your swooning.

I don't need a definition, you do. That is why I wanted to see where you stand before I go about educating you on the subject, so you sound more logical than at least a parrot.

Not true, folks like Piven and Ayers see economic destruction as the end of capitalism.

The Dems are cheering for economic failure they are actively making it a reality in order to force the country away from petroleum products.

Dems have renamed economic destruction to call it collective sacrifice for the good of the country.
