    I’m going to use my search engine to find out who won the debate.

  2. glenn says:

    Joe the Plumber knows the truth… 🙂

  3. glenn says:

    I used Google to find this interview with Joe the Plumber…

  4. JCH says:

    Actually, Joe the plumber flunked business math. And McCain is a total moron. On Joe’s taxable income above $250,000 he would pay an additional $1500 over the current tax on that $50,000.

    39% minus 36%=3% times $50,000 = $1500.00.

    McBush is so out of touch, he apparently thinks a plumber’s apprentice/assistant makes $1,499.00 per year.

  5. glenn says:

    JCH you are just upset that a plumber is going to unravel the messiah…lol

    Now if those plumbers on GhostBusters endorse McCain then it will get interesting…lol

    I can’t believe the scrambling today over a plumber…

    Watch the tactics to continue on discrediting a hardworking American…all because he isn’t part of the liberal elite.

    But Obama doesn’t support class warfare…

    Go read about Obama’s cousin Odinga and answer me how someone could ever help someone like Odinga?

  6. glenn says:

    JCH take a look at Obama’s plan for energy independence.

    He will only support solar and wind. He will force US automakers to build car that will be too expensive – and somehow Obama thinks everyone in America will buy new cars??? Seriously whacked…sounds just like…let’s force banks to make bad loans. We don’t need more of that.

    McCain is right about energy. Drill everywhere and now, 45 nuclear plants. McCain is targeting the largest part of our energy usage…Obama is going to try to solve it by forcing environmental policies on the automotive industry and that doesn’t even includes trucks, trains, buses, etc and cars on their most busiest day account for up to 30% of of energy usage.

    Next Obama will force energy conservation (of course not for the elite – just look at Al Gore) and that will further tank our economy.

    Drilling, Natural Gas, Solar, Clean Coal, NUCLEAR!!!! and wind ALL NOW. They first should put the wind farms in Ted Kennedy’s backyard – damn hypocrites.

    McCain will solve the problem in less than 10 years and make significant progress within 3. Obama’s plan will take a lot longer and cause a lot more pain along the way.

  7. JCH says:

    Dude, I’m in the oil business. McCain’s energy policy is point-blank stupid.

  8. glenn says:

    (8) That explains quite a bit. I can understand why you don’t like McCain/Palin…and I can clearly see why you like the Democrats…you will make a lot more money with Obama.

  9. JCH says:

    I thought Obama is going to tax me into oblivion?

    Greed is good.

  10. glenn says:

    This is exactly the type of policy that Barack would impose. It is ludicrous to call for Utilities to restrict energy usage.

    We need to solve the problem…not make things worse. This is another fine example of bad policy and bad politics.

    Pennsylvania law tries to cut electricity usage

    We need at least 45 new nuclear power plants up and running within 5 years.

  11. JoeDuck says:

    We need at least 45 new nuclear power plants up and running within 5 years.

    Finally something on which we can totally agree. We should be building nuclear plants like our lives depended on it, because they may. After the election Obama will eventually come around to strong support for nuclear because it’s a key part of a good energy plan.

    Unfortunately I think the over-regulation (!) makes it very hard to build these fast.

  12. JCH says:

    The regulation thing is a myth. I live in the shadow of Comanche Peak, which was one of the last nukes built. There would be dozens and dozens more built after that, but for one thing.

    Nukes cannot compete with coal plants. Nukes cannot compete with natural gas plants.

    Initially we got two power bills. One of the nuke and one for other. Other was dirt cheap. The nuke bill was astonishingly high. Texans threatened lynchings, so they averaged the nuke into the regular bill by extending the term on investment recovery.

  13. glenn says:

    (12) Joe we also need desalination plants built right next to those plants and they should be built near the coast where appropriate or a major water source.

    Two of our biggest challenges will be energy and acceptable drinking water.

    Nuclear can deliver really inexpensive electricity we just need our government to make it happen – this is exactly the type of thing that a government is good for.

  14. glenn says:

    (12) Joe that is a big gamble about Barack I don’t think there is any way he will ever support Nuclear, Clean Coal or Drilling – where we need to do it.

    If he ever did it wouldn’t be within the next four years.

  15. JoeDuck says:

    Glenn Obama has changed to favor drilling
    (see Senate records)

    Clean coal is also favored I think – though they are downplaying these issues to avoid pissing off knee-jerk constituents.

    And he probably will be supportive of nuclear – this from a left wing site pissed at him:

    Two top Exelon officials, Frank M. Clark, executive vice president, and John W. Rogers Jr., a director, are among his largest fund-raisers.

    Another Obama donor,John W. Rowe, chairman of Exelon, is also chairman of the Nuclear Energy Institute, the nuclear power industry’s lobbying group, based in Washington. Exelon’s support for Mr. Obama far exceeds its support for any other presidential candidate.

    In addition, Mr. Obama’s chief political strategist, David Axelrod, has worked as a consultant to Exelon. A spokeswoman for Exelon said Mr. Axelrod’s company had helped an Exelon subsidiary, Commonwealth Edison, with communications strategy periodically since 2002, but had no involvement in the leak controversy or other nuclear issues.

  16. glenn says:

    (16) Joe he mildly supports drilling but far offshore not where the updated new reports show massive oil in the Gulf of Mexico, etc.

    He supports drilling in the areas where they have leases but not the shale oil.

    We need it ALL and we need it now.
