    progressiveslayer… you ever hear the term, “you spot it, you got it”? Just saying…

    Aside from your obvious… ahem… infatuations, I must say you guys have become far and away worse than any liberal had hoped to be during the Bush administration. Anything we accused them of is mild and tame compared to the antics and BS spewed by the insane sect of conservatives that was borne out of the paranoid schizophrenic ramblings of guys like Alex Jones and Glenn Beck.

    Truth is, we don’t know that this wasn’t race motivated. All that is known is a police officer performed an act of restraint that was outlawed by his department decades ago, which ended in the man dying while handcuffed on the sidewalk, as if he were an animal. Would the officer have done that to a white man? Nobody knows, so let’s not say “this had nothing to do with racism”, because it sure as hell could have.

    Ironic… Napolitano goes on with Jon Stewart and says that entities that keep the public fearful have control over them, then days later puts on his fear-monger hat, goes on with one of the world’s most effective fear-mongerers of our time… to fear-monger.

    Considering – according to Glenn – we were all supposed to be living in a post-apocalyptic world long ago, residing in cardboard boxes, picking from trash cans to eat (because a loaf of bread would be $50), I’d say he had it pretty good over his Thanksgiving break.

    Zip, call BS all you want… I’m used to your flawed logic and denying truth anytime someone who isn’t in lockstep with you speaks it. A moderate is equal to a communist… a moderate says the sky is blue, you call BS… I get it.

    Zippy… that was weak. I realize my not mentioning the name of Beck sort of keeps your hands tied though. I’m sure at some point in the near future I’ll give you a reason to defend your beloved. Fret not.

    filiusdracul… driving drunk and wanting to kill yourself because you can’t change feelings and temptations that could isolate you from your family are 2 completely different things. Also, we have made said feelings and temptations equal to active participation and rebellion… which they’re not. God never judged anyone for being tempted.

    “The “Illegals” have already stepped in front of them, as they are already here, and getting the benefits of “Citizenship”, by the stroke of Obamas’ Pen!!!!”

    As opposed to what we currently have… which is exactly the same thing, except these illegals aren’t paying taxes.

    Past POTUS’ (like Reagan) executive orders granting amnesty to children of illegals, deferring deportations, speeding up green card processes, etc. must have been missed by some of you guys. I’m not saying I totally agree with this executive action, however, I’m not playing the political BS game and pretending like this is the first time a POTUS has ever done this.

    As a Christian who has several people in my life who have struggled with the feelings they have for the same sex, and watching a few of them as they grew into adulthood either think about, plan or even attempt suicide due to the fear of their Christian families disowning them… I’m ashamed of the level of ignorance and judgment by my fellow believers. Not surprised, but ashamed. And this isn’t about condoning anything. It’s about loving people where they are, relating to them how Jesus has changed your life, and leaving any life transformation up to the Holy Spirit to worry about. Put down the bullhorn, Christians!

    VRW, I read more level-headed economists… ones that don’t make big sensational predictions. Dent said in the mid 2000′s that the Dow would hit 40,000 and Nasdaq would hit 20,000 by 2009. Then after the panic of ’08 had come and gone, he predicted the crash of the Dow every year since (recent predictions were 3,000 in 2012 and 6000 in 2014). Funny thing is… Dent’s supposed “reset” prediction you’re talking about is a deflationary one… not inflationary. Laffer has been more wrong than right. I guess I’m not familiar with the others. I read guys like Brian Wesbury, who, while conservative and against Obama policies, does not buy into the doomsday hype that has plagued conservative talk shows and such for so long now. Aside from not foreseeing the panic of ’08 ahead of time, he has been right more often than not ever since.

    I have not seen butter hit even $4/lb where I’m at, however I did read an article last month that stated butter demand was increasing exponentially this year as people are consuming more than ever (abandoning margarine) and supply was not keeping up in the month of September. So, it’s supply and demand more than it is inflation. I’ll give you an example… I buy the big 7.5 dozen eggs at Costco… it has usually been about $8.99-$9.99 at my local Costco… there was a breath of an egg shortage and all of a sudden, that box was $13.99 the next time I bought it (a couple months back). The shortage eased, and the last time I bought them (very recent), it was $9.99 once again.

    The reason I felt the need had to do with foobared’s possibly racism-inspired and stereotyping question he sarcastically made to me above.

    I also find it pretty hilarious and ironic that the very same folks who tell people who blame their circumstances on why they can’t get ahead and want government to do something about it, are blaming their circumstances on why they can’t get ahead and want the government to do something about it. What has happened to my fellow conservatives?

    Absolutely hilarious… I have 2 thumbs down on a post basically proclaiming that I’m a responsible, hard-working American. LOL!

    GeoChk, gas was over $4.00/gallon in the summer of ’07… the only reason it touched $1.70/gallon in ’09 was due to the collapse of all markets. When looking at ’07 to now (over 7 years of time), gas still hasn’t reached the ’07 peak… not once in 7 years timeframe, and is over $1.40 cheaper than that at my local stations today. I didn’t mention the big drop in food prices in ’08/09, because, just as your numbers are, it was for a brief snapshot in time. Everything was extremely volatile back then, so you have to look at data over a longer period of time… and when doing so, you see a big drop in food prices from 1982 to 2012, when adjusting for inflation.

    Oh, and before you think you’ve pegged and pigeon-holed me, I work 2 jobs, have a successful marriage, raise my children, pay my bills, have zero assistance outside of my own hard work, and have 81 pages of Blaze comments in 3.5 years vs. your 1,104 just for your current 1-year-old incarnation on this site.

    ((yawn))… yeah, that cliche of the winter of (fill in the year) yada yada yada has been posted in the comments section here every year since this site’s inception.

    Funny… you have completed missed the mark though.

    In 2012, butter was about 35% cheaper (in 2012 dollars) than it was in 1982, as was ground beef (-20%), sugar (-17%), bacon (-13%), and a host of other foods.
