Conservapedia is a Wiki, ( like wikipedia...lol) so anybody can post there or edit anything also.


Oh and what of the pops up from one of those examiner pages. Was flagged for possible spyware/phishing. Its one of those you won a free IPAD things.
I did not seek out these web sites, i did Google searches for 0bama quotes and from the news reports i have been hearing on the radio. I cannot help it if the left wing mainstream media reports on these issues do not show up near the top of the searches.

Do your own Google searches like i did, and find left leaning sites if you like. I chose links that had full quotes, video, interviews, I tried not to use sites that were full of commentary and partial quotes.

Here are a few of the words and phrases i used to perform my searches. some of these sites lead me to other sites.

epa coal mining denied Spruce

"electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket"

"how to boost the price of gasoline" Europe Chu

clean energy standard by 2035

"shell oil company" epa Chukchi permit


Feel free to search on your own, i could care less, you drones just act foolish most of the time anyway.

Nice attempt at deception, but Obama was sworn in January 2009, not 2008.

A couple days after Obama was sworn in, gas was $1.84.

So you are the one in the wrong.

For goshakes, read a book on peak oil already. How are we going to sustain our way of life if we don't adapt? Even George W. Bush admitted our addiction to oil is problematic.

BTW, if you are gonna blame Obama for high gas prices, you have to credit him for the rising stock market and solidifying economy (and don't disagree just because you might be underemployed).

There is a big difference, in grades one does the best they can and earn the best that they can. With taxes, people who exploit others to make wealth take away opportunity from others in their exploitation. To make it a more equal situation you would have to have a learning environment where the top 5% grade holders have all the access to learning material and teachers and the rest have to scrap for the 10% of what remains. Then to ask the top 5% to give to those who did not have access to the majority of material it would be fair.
Look at the actions 0bama and his administration have been taking, all he has been doing is to make it difficult if not impossible to drill for oil, or mine for coal or produce electricity.

If you consider that destroying the recovery will aid the Republicans in the next election and most oil executives support the Republicans it is reasonable to conclude the oil executives have raised prices to destroy the economy and prevent president Obama’s second term. That they are collecting many billions doing so only supports the previous conclusion.

Oil price is set by the stock market and demand. With Asia and other nations buying oil at any price and the dwindling supply it will be high. Oil peaked out in the USA in 1970, it most likely is peaking out now or has with in the past couple of years. Oil peak is like a recession you don't know you are in one till you are well past the beginning. There has not been a major find in oil for some 12 years or more. We get most of our oil from the tar sands of Canada, and the shale deposits in the Midwest cost 2 barrels to get 3 out. We have to cut usage and look at wind and solar, long distance high speed rail, stop the idea that we are entitled to the 3000 mile Cesar salad. You people who think we can drill our way out of this have no idea what is going on.

Jermaine88, regardless of who did the reporting, are you able to debunk the direct quotes? I'm questioning how much of a conservative you really are, so please by all means, debunk the research Wapasha has put forth if you feel that it is flawed.
Thanks. I just thought about the high costs in gas, and from what I have been hearing in the news, I decided upon this conclusion, 0bama is doing his damnedest to increase energy costs, just as he and others in his administration have been saying. This only took me an hour to put together. Google is your friend.
