    It;s legal, but the former Dem governor told his staff not to do it.

    When is a maverick not a maverick? When they just spent 26 years in non maverick land.:cuckoo:

    And she was only against the bridge to nowhere after she was for it and kept the money anyway, and she didn't sell her plane on ebay, and she didn't fire the chef.

    Did you watch Keith Olbermann or the Daily Show last night? I think I heard all this on MSNBC.

    If the mainstream/corporate media doesn't call them on their lies, they'll get away with it.

    Thom Hartmann yesterday was warning that Obama hasn't faught back hard enough. Polls showing McCain winning now. No freakin way.

    If America doesn't care about all of their lies, or if America is dumb enough to fall for Rove's tactics a 3rd time, screw it. I'll find something else other than politics to be my hobby.

    Man, I can't wait for the NBA to start up again.

    One thing Barack Obama and McCain disagree on is an oil windfall-profits tax. McCain is against it, on the theory that it is a tax and therefore bad and also on the theory that it would discourage domestic production. Obama is for it, on the theory that if oil companies can make a nice profit when oil sells for $50 per bbl., they can still make a nice profit when it sells at more than $100, even if the government takes a bit and spreads the money around to those who are hurting from higher oil prices.



    Although Palin's words side with McCain in this dispute, her actions side with Obama. Her major legislative accomplishment has been to revamp Alaska's windfall-profits tax in order to increase the state's take. Alaska calls it a "clear and equitable share" tax. The state assumes that extracting oil from the tundra costs about $25 per bbl. and takes as much as 75% of the difference between that and the sale price.



    Why is a windfall-profits tax good for Alaska but not for the U.S.?

    Please don't go from thread to thread posting the same post. That's called spam. Pick one.... then if you want to refer people to your point, you can simply link to the thread.

    Thanks.
