OK, I'll walk that one back...

DustOff, lefties don't seem to be happy unless they're tearing somebody to shreds.

Better?

"Republican terrorists" just sounds so extremist, doesn't it?

"Desperate Democrats" sounds just about right.

Or this...

"Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?"

The Republican terrorists have strapped bombs to their vests -- and just before they blow themselves up, they snicker and snort about how completely they've disrupted the White House lunch menu.

Who cares how many posts DustOff writes?

Free speech is free speech. For everyone.

If namexxx wants to post 1 out of 2 posts on any topic, he's free to do so.

Now if DustOff's getting paid, more posting means more $$ for him.

And if he's not getting paid, that means he's venting more than the rest of us. Sometimes there's nothing like a good vent.

Interestingly, I get to vent as I read some of DustOff's posts. Sometimes I research them to find out the Paul Harveys too. Fun for me.

I'm so sorry DustOff's several postings gets under some people's skin....well, maybe not.

Dust?

willgrr, I've never said I agreed with bdgi's language pecadillos. When you are there to call him on everything, all's right with the world and I need not lift a finger. I can then be available to somehow take others to task, though not so well and ably as you do.

Again, commentators on here are acting like big babies and arguing with people they don,t even know. Do u guys realize when u stoop to their level....well you are just like that person you are probably trying to insult. I read these because I get a free dose of entertainment and it makes me feel better about myself, which isn,t very nice to say in itself either. I know in alot of peoples lives politics is very important, but sometimes you just do not have control, so turn off your computer,tv and close your newspaper and just spend some quality time with your family and/or loved ones without thinking or stressing about the problems in the world we cannot change. You will have a much better day and will not take unneeded anger out on unknown persons for what really comes down to silly reasons. When you leave this world, does it matter what the government did or said or how you reacted and conveyed these things in your REAL life.

billygitmo's posted quote was from "Poor Richard's News" a blog that quoted the Daily Caller about one KS navigator in particular. The blogger himself went on about "former ACORN employees, SEIU union goons, and Planned Parenthood abortion activists" acting as navigators. Looks like his opinion to this (somewhat trained) observer, because I saw no cited source.

Was it low? I don't know. Unless billygitmo relates "da facts" instead of a blogger's opinion, it appears the buck should stop here.

My computer would probably complain if I happened to surf onto lefty-winger blogging sites. Either complain or melt down with the blue language...

Yeah, you're welcome for the Paul Harvey.

So the President and Sen. Reid will only start the negotiations when the House sends a "clean" CR bill?

That's interesting. Why bother with the House at all, even though spending bills are to originate there?

Congress and the president are non-essential. Why are they still on the job?

Actually, the farmer reported it on the 27th Our esteemed governor did not even know about it until last Wednesday. Yep, lets put the XL right through ND. You can bet the spill is much bigger. Oh, and they have retrieved about what--10% of the oil. Great. Oil companies favorite comment: Trust Us???

our fed reps excep Heidi bragged about how we do it in nd. we can manage this without the epa they said. yea right. this is what opponents to keystone xl warned about. this broken pipe is only 20 years old. i am guessing an occasional pressure test would expose a pipe fracture like this. if the epa says you better test your pipes--they better. think they will "take this to Washington?

not true loco--she is pro gun. Obama could visit here and see the price we pay for oil to be here. he might be getting a last glimpse of our beautiful and pristine lake sakakawea. i am afraid if drillers don't take what they are doing more serious, we will have a catastrophic incident that will ruin it for everyone. if and when the big spill o r disaster happens--i will ask our congressional delegation to "take that to Washington". we could start with covered sand trucks, no flaring nat gas.--for starters.

Here's your "small dose of real life"...

Sen. Heitkamp's "D" behind her name seems to only mean a vote for Pres. Obama and Sen. Harry Reid.

Overachievement has its downside...

cont...

"He said he wouldn't come in the winter," Heitkamp told National Journal while driving outside of Dickinson, a town of about 20,000 people on the edge of the oil patch. "That's as much of a commitment—I think it's really important for him to take a look," said Heitkamp, changing her thought mid-sentence."

"This energy boom is producing clear benefits, for North Dakota, which has the lowest unemployment rate in the country, and for the rest of America, which is importing the fewest barrels of oil since the mid-1990s and getting closer than ever to the elusive goal of energy independence."

"I would encourage him to go out," said former Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., who campaigned with Obama in the state in 2008. "You've got to see it to believe it. It's a big boost to our economy and also a big boost to our nation's energy policy."

Veritas, a FEMA declaration doesn't equal a visit from President Obama.

nationaljournal . com/energy/why-won-t-obama-visit-north-dakota-20130825

"North Dakota is like an overachieving child who attracts the attention of everyone—except Dad.

"The oil boom taking over western North Dakota and transforming America's energy landscape has prompted visits from people around the world—Germany, Turkey, Japan, Dubai, and elsewhere—to see what they can learn and how they can benefit.

"President Obama, however, has not visited the state since moving into the White House (although he did drop in twice during the 2008 presidential campaign).

"Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., has a goal to change that, and she asked Obama earlier this year if he would visit..."

I think President Obama needs to come to North Dakota to get a dose of real life because we have higher prices than the country...heck cheaper in Alaska these days. It's time to foot down and get a control on prices.......

a most revealing part of the shut down story is what the tp did not know about non-essentiaal. now the want to reopen those elements as the public speaks out. fact is, if the tp ruled--their would be NO non-essential Government or energy,education and ag depts.

add: some very rich also buy newspapers in order for their anti-government opinion to be published. i despise their behavior much more than the non-tp people in the Fed.

a different dose: the t party was hired by very rich people (some in the oil bus) to stomp on the Gov't' which they have done. we pay for their huge coffers in part on gasoline. they fly around the world where they are treated like royalty and eat the $50 to $250 meals with their kind. we paid the money for them to buy congressmen and live like royalty--beyond what goes on in DC. to bad someone can't shut them down.
