Actually stalker i'm much uglier than that. But let's talk about losers for a moment shall we. I am a successful businessman that keeps other people in a job. I'll be retiring in another 10 years very comfortably on my own farm inherited from my father that is paid for. I have a loving family with a loving and caring wife. Three beautiful and successful children, that have given me four beautiful grandchildren. We will be having a wonderful Christmas at the farm this year with many family members from other states staying over. We will be donating presents to our local church that will be given to the Christmas Mothers charity in the Richmond Virginia area that will give a lot of kids a Christmas they would not have otherwise had. The first of the year, my guys will wire two houses for Habitat for Humanity completely at my expense, so two families will have a place to call home.

How's life working out for you loser?


Good for you Skews, all that and still lack the ability to understand tolerance!!

The price of a gallon of gas is based on the combination of four costs: that of crude oil, of refining gas, of distribution and marketing, and of taxes.

Crude oil costs make up about 76% of the cost of gasoline, according to U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Thus $2.66 of a $3.50 gallon of gasoline is set before the oil is even refined. Global markets, reacting to supply and demand, determine the cost of crude oil. Just like any commodity, from gold to corn, a shortage in supply or an increase in demand leads to a rise in prices.

Refining oil is the next step in the process—and the next expense for drivers. Gasoline is extracted from crude oil and additives, including lubricants and detergents to reduce engine deposits, are added. As of January 2012, the EIA found that refining was responsible for 6% of the cost of gasoline.

Distribution and marketing—the part of the process most apparent to consumers—constitutes another 6% of gas prices. That portion of the cost includes the shipping and transportation of the gasoline, a markup to cover retailers' expenses, and any advertising created to appeal to customers.

The remaining 12%—or almost 50 cents per gallon today—goes directly to federal, state and local governments in an array of sales and excise taxes. The federal gas tax is 18.4 cents on every gallon of gasoline sold in America. State gas-tax rates vary from a low of eight cents per gallon in Alaska to a jarring 49 cents per gallon in New York. Other states where it's steep to fill up include California and Connecticut—each with 48.6-cent-per-gallon gas taxes—and Hawaii, at 47.1 cents per gallon.

Some local governments have gotten in on the act, too. In California, local sales and excise taxes on gasoline average 3.1%, according to the Los Angeles Times. That works out to about 12 cents in local taxes for each gallon of gas, based on the state's current average of $3.80 per gallon.

Skokie, Ill., a suburb north of Chicago, levies a gas tax of three cents per gallon. You'll pay an extra nickel per gallon at gas stations in Eugene, Ore. And the next time you're gambling in Las Vegas, you'll need plenty of cash left over to cover Clark County's 10 cent local tax on a gallon of gas. In Florida, Brevard County (home to the Kennedy Space Center) expects to siphon more than $15 million from motorists this year, according to the newspaper Florida Today.

Put this all together, and government makes far more from gas sales than all of the oil companies put together. Exxon, for example, made only seven cents per gallon of gasoline in 2011. That's a drop in the bucket compared to the nearly 50 cents per gallon that federal, state and local governments rake in on an average gallon of gas pumped in the U.S.


It appears the author did source quite abit of information in his article.

Not at all. At my age I've seen this play before. I already know how the final act is going to play out. If it's one thing that history has bared out time after time, when Republicans win elections and try to impose their extreme views on the country, it only helps out Liberals in following elections. Since the Republicans have the chance to win seats in the Senate this year, but only to win a simple majority, they can't get past Obama's veto pen anyway, so they will be a lame duck majority the day they are sworn in. When Hillary Clinton wins by a landslide in 2016, they will not only be a lame duck majority, but will have had two years to make minority, women, and younger voters just come to despise them more than they do now. What idiots like you better be scared of is just how fast, and how far those demographics of voters will take the country to the left, which will be farther and faster than at anytime previously. The 2020's will be the last dying breath of anything that ever remotely resembled a conservative America. Sucks to be you in your old age.


Plain simple fact, Conservative's own more guns,,,,

What happens when the world dumps the dollar?


What does the dollar as a world reserve currency mean to us in the United States? First, it triggers substantial demand for our securities. About 30 percent of U.S. debt outstanding is owned by foreign countries in their currency reserves. Without that demand for our treasury bonds, the interest rate that the U.S. Treasury pays would be significantly higher. That would likely mean that even private sector borrowing costs would be higher, as consumer and corporate debt compete with public debt for investors’ holdings.


Here comes $1 TRILLION A YEAR to service the Federal Debt,,,,,,,

It's all in how it is reported,,,,,

The chart show unions spending $600 to $800 million per year 08' to 11'

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1 ... 4031850026
The hours spent by union employees working on political matters were equivalent in 2010 to a shadow army much larger than President Barack Obama's current re-election staff, data analyzed by the Journal show.

The usual measure of unions' clout encompasses chiefly what they spend supporting federal candidates through their political-action committees, which are funded with voluntary contributions, and lobbying Washington, which is a cost borne by the unions' own coffers. These kinds of spending, which unions report to the Federal Election Commission and to Congress, totaled $1.1 billion from 2005 through 2011, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

The unions' reports to the Labor Department capture an additional $3.3 billion that unions spent over the same period on political activity.

The costs reported to the Labor Department range from polling fees, to money spent persuading union members to vote a certain way, to bratwursts to feed Wisconsin workers protesting at the state capitol last year. Much of this kind of spending comes not from members' contributions to a PAC but directly from unions' dues-funded coffers. There is no requirement that unions report all of this kind of spending to the Federal Election Commission, or FEC.
