Actually, it is the Southern states who get more money than blue states. I think the numbers are something like: for every dollar a blue state puts in it get 87 cents back. For every dollar a red state pays, it gets $1.50 back. But I know facts don't mean anything to you (and you have a damn computer; use it to do research before spouting off nonsense).

Instead of whining about his policy, we need to take a hard look at it. The giant flaw in it is how it will be funded. Obama seems to think we should pay thru energy bills. I think we should shift money by eliminating Obamacare and serious cuts in entitlement programs. If he wants green energy, then the feds need to pay for it themselves.
Yes, we should have expensive scrubbers for coal plants, but the government’s job is to provide those scrubbers themselves since the plants were legal at the time they were built. Otherwise we simply shift the coal powered plants south of the border and turn Mexico into our major provider of electrical power.

If a liberal shouts a cuss word on a liberal talk show that no one watched ever, is it really a cuss word? Kinda like the tree falling in the woods scenario.

Cruz is so strong that every commenter on his article responds in italics! Now that’s a man of passion!!! (note:the three exclamation points in ITALICS… oh yeah)
What's with all the italics on this comment page?
I have also had a lot of trouble with this website recently. I access through my iPhone and many times when I try to open a story I get kicked clear back to my server page. I have had to try three separate times just to be able to open one story.

Oh look, we now have a new caucus called the “blood money group.” A pair of Republicans who enjoy their donation money more than human life. Good luck explaining that to God when the time comes.

Try this for a law:
Mothers who choose to terminate their pregnancies do not give up control of the fetal tissue. It is up to them that the termination has been handled in a legal way. I would say this law could be passed state-by-state to put a stop to the new planned Parenthood meat markets springing up at a location near you.
I like the idea.
Let's take it a step further. The facility executing the procedure, should also be required to film every procedure from multiple angles and conversations recorded. And they are subject to prison if the deviate in any shape or form in how it is currently "legal" to kill babies.
Accountability....what a concept.

BIGGER QUESTION: Did the “mothers” give permission to sell the body parts? If so, were they told the sales were illegal? If not, did PP actually own the body parts they sold? Don’t all the women have a legal claim to the tissue and isn’t there a class-action lawsuit demanding compensation, especially to welfare mothers who were told they were better off without the burden of a child. I would guess PP should pay every donor mom about 80 percent of the proceeds they earned from the sales.
Greed vs greed is something Democrats can understand.
The mothers do not have claim to the tissue since it is labeled 'Medical Waste'. If the mother does not sign for organs to be harvested, then the whole fetus is sent to an incinerator. If the sale of the fetus tissue is illegal then the research institutes that purchased the samples would also be guilty.
"If the sale of the fetus tissue is illegal then the research institutes that purchased the samples would also be guilty"
You are right. And they are.
Does blue and yellow really make green????
Who told that to welfare mothers? The abortion fairy?
These organ sales are based on the American Red Cross BLOOD BANK model ,,, Blood is classified as an organ , it is illegal to sell or buy ,, yet hospitals buy it every day... HOW? The blood banks get the blood for free and do not charge the hospitals for the blood ,, HOWEVER the hospitals are charged 20 to 50 times the actual cost of the TESTING of the blood. Similarly PP will argue that their expertise and time/resources are what is being paid for and that the organs are actually free.
The Blood Banks twisted the laws years ago for their benefit and this is the result.
neidermeyer, there is one big difference here. No one is killed in the collection and donation of blood.

Looks like Hank Williams, Jr was right.

Nothing wrong with coffee, so long as you skip the cream and sugar. I have liver issues and coffee is actually beneficial for liver health. Just keep it under three cups a day.

That’s the best news the gun industry would ever want to hear. I would need to buy stock in Ruger and any company that makes Confederate flags.

So let me get this straight? Kraut calls Cruz a hypocrite for not criticizing Trump for telling the truth. I suppose that would make sense if I was drunk.

Not one reporter in Washington has the huevos to ask Mitch McConnell if he lied about making a deal. This is slanted journalism by selective reporting. They let these senators lie about not making a crony deal and then cover it up by focusing the light on a senator who dared to point it out. Stalin would be proud.

Getting into a debate with Ted Cruz is like getting locked into a tiger cage to protest animal abuse. You might want to avoid getting so close next time, little lady.

…and to think the Republicans were worried if Donald Trump went independent. What if he were to fund someone even more powerful?
 July 25, 2015 at 8:05pm
Seems Trump only allowed journalists into his event. Maybe this will start a trend among Republican candidates.
 July 23, 2015 at 11:16pm
He did it right. Any damage and there’d be witnesses, police and some douche-bag attorney involved. He made his point. Pull your pants up and move on.

“The GOOD news is that you have to actively enable it if YOU wish to use it.”
The BAD news is….

One thing is clear:
The Donald has pretty much destroyed any chances for Rick Perry, Marco Rubio and Lindsay Graham. Those three have been reduced to launching full-time attacks on Trump that look like schoolyard gossip. It simply makes them look like underfunded fools.
Not so sure about that.
But if it is as you say...
Keep up the GREAT work Donald.
Only about 13 more Republican candidates to go.
And once you 'destroy any chance' for all the other Republicans....
Because we (those of us who deal in reality) KNOW there is NO WAY you will EVER be elected president.
Thank you Donald.
Yeah, I'm a little disappointed Perry took the bait.......
"Because we (those of us who deal in reality)"
He also brought the issue of illegal alien criminals to light, and if that is all Trump accomplishes by running for President, it will have been worth it.
The one thing Trump is accomplishing is pointing out the problems that all the other candidates are scared to touch. By pointing those things out he is increasing the popularity of all the republican candidates and driving down the results for Hillary. Thank you Donald.
They destroyed themselves and so have some of the others as well. We are cutting the losers and eventually will be down to just a handful for the debates and they had better allow Trump in or else! We Americans are speaking you clods who think you own and run the debates. NOTE: You no longer have that power so get over RNC!
Lindsay acts like a little boy, Rubio is to wet behind the ears and Perry is to angry!

I hope that some of the lower-tier hacks (Bush, Graham, Perry, Huckabee) get so irritated by Trump that they’ll refuse to take the same stage with him. I’ll want to sell popcorn for that event. I’m not a Trump fan, but you gotta love how he can get the Chamber guys wound up like angry bees.
