ps I got on air
KEEP TELLING SOME TRUTH ZH... BECOME OUTSPOKEN!
That's good news. Fuck the Patriot Act! Obama criticized it when he ran. Now he's in love with it more than Bush.
By a vote of 277-148, the House failed to pass the extension, needed 290(2/3) Yea votes to pass- click here for the roll call vote to see how your representative voted! See list of traitors of our nation here. http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll026.xml
Thanks again for all you've done, but remember, we can't let up pressure now. This won't be the last we've heard of the PATRIOT Act renewal in the House.
FINAL VOTE RESULTS FOR ROLL CALL 26
H R 514 2/3 YEA-AND-NAY 8-Feb-2011 7:04 PM QUESTION: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass BILL TITLE: To extend expiring provisions of the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005 and Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 relating to access to business records, individual terrorists as agents of foreign powers, and roving wiretaps until December 8, 2011

Barney Frank voted "Nay" to let them expire. Barney, you finally got one right.
Shame on any "conservative" for voting to extend these extraordinary powers.
agreed my comments exactly on cspan
1/3 Dem, 2/3 Rep Yea votes. That's a shameful bipartisan response for the dems.
The Dem voters better get their asses on the phone and give those 67 D votes an earful if they want to retain any credibility.
Gimme a T...gimme an E...gimme an A.
You know what that spells ;-)
"The vote came as several tea party-aligned members of the new freshman class had been expressing doubts about the measure."
Just think about all the people who monitor the web traffic at the Fusion Centers, the NSA, programming people and companies who will be put out of business should the Non-Patriot Act go down in flames?
Without missing a paycheck they'll be re-employeed as Michelle's calorie counting crusaders.
kalorie kounting.... ?
You think they'll actually stop what they're doing even if the act isn't renewed?
We're past that point now, I'm pretty sure. They don't need no stinking badges...
above the law and above the budget
<cough> what he said...
Agreed, it will not stop some of the agencies but there will be some positive effects.
that's pretty much what I'm thinking too, some way they will continue on as they have, I can't think that they stop now.
This will go on, but it'll all be covered up. No one ever willingly gives up a portion of their power without 1) a big fight or 2) knowing that in reality they aren't giving up anything.
"Front page on the politics page..... What a great picture and what a great story. I hope somebody will consider this front page material and put this photo embedded right above the story!..Washington (CNN) - Will Ron Paul make another bid for the White House?.A senior adviser to the 12-term representative from Texas says it's a strong possibility.."Congressman Paul is very pleased with his strong national organization and flattered by his growing national profile. He is strongly considering a presidential run and is assessing all of his political prospects," Paul Political Director Jesse Benton tells CNN..An influential pro-family social conservative group in Iowa, the state that goes first in the presidential caucus and primary calendar, announced Monday that Paul accepted an invitation to speak next month at a presidential lecture series."
run Ron run!
Ron Paul will be on Fox Biz Freedom Watch Tomorrow
I hate Freedom Watch. When is the Judge going to stop yelling his opinions. He sounds like Walter Winchell on steroids.
Don't diss Judge Napalitano!
If you're talking about someone who merely yelled their opinions, you must be thinking of Keith Olbermann.
I am Chumbawamba.
What makes you think it will make any difference? They will do what they want to do anyway. Who will stop them? We have such blatant fraud and corruption in government and business, no one stops that. Laws are a farce in this country. Unless you are a peon who steals a loaf of bread to feed the brats. Then you go to jail.
reject apathy it on serves TPTB!
Not apathy, reality. Nothing is gonna change until the SHTF.
Citizens of Gotham (America) need a caped crusader- Batman!!
The P Act was pushed through early needing a 2/3 vote to pass.
This thing will get pushed through once again in a week or so, with only a majority needed, it will pass then.
We can't think we won this battle, not with these crooks in office. As we saw with the healthcare bill, they will keep pushing until it comes out of the other side, looking like a piece of e coli riddled sausage.
It failed because Democrats voted against it.
I'm begining to think all people that talk in an English accent are idiots. Especially on CNBC.
FINALLY SOME GOOD SENCE!!
Oil is sooooo yesterday.
(Know I'm not first, but the repeat crap above doesn't count. Fukking CNTL-V)
Looks great. Um, why don't they have any revenues?
No revenues cuz they are all in development. MCP is next year. All current production comes from Chinee.
Oil is the gateway resource for all other resources. The higher the price of oil the less revenue for REE and PM miners.
No REEs, no flat screens for the Welfare class.
here's some truth from Larry King about bank
PS hendry and I appeared to be wrong.
just treading water which is the way he basically sets himself.
Risk, you want risk? How about this?
WikiLeaks cables: Saudi Arabia cannot pump enough oil to keep a lid on prices US
Diplomat convinced by Saudi expert that reserves of world's biggest oil exporter have been overstated by nearly 40%
Paging Travis, Trav7777 to the white courtesy phone.
Don't worry. The 22.5% unemployed won't be using much of it in the foreseeable future.
Let’s look at the data:
1) Recent storage data on tankers show that off-shore storage is about 60-80 m bbls. To put this number into context, it is about 1 day of demand or 2 days or net oil exports from producers.
2) Net Oil exports from producers peaked in 2005. There is simply less oil on the market. This chart is the tell:
3) Sometime in 2008, the forward oil curve went into contango for the first time. They was a lot of debate about what this implied. My take is that the smart money figured out that demand would be outstripping supply into the foreseeable future. In essence, it now trades like a currency.
4) Breakdown what is called oil into its real components
C+C, NGL, Other liquids
Now, generously give an EROEI of 6 on “other liquids”, in other words from an energy perspective multiply by 0.85, otherwise you double count the oil to produce the liquids.
NGL is 65% of the energy density of crude
Ignore Refinery Gains, that is simply increasing the volume for the same energy content…
And fold in existing fields are declining at 4.5% (CERA, IHS etc..) per annum and that new fields are barely keeping up.
The energy of Liquids production has been flat for 5 years.
This is why oil is the alpha asset.
And I am plenty long precious metals as well.
You cant eat oil, but if shit really came down to it, I would eat the shit out of my shiney maples...yummy
forget oil...bonds about to get crushed,,,short TLT what a move in the 2 and 10
high ho silver!
Fuk Saudi. Drill, Baby, Drill!
Especially drill those dumbass SINators' skulls.
There are places in Brazil, Russia and China where western person could feel quite comfortable, but the rest of these countries would be considered a tough place to live in for a used to modern comfort sissy European or North American.
Patagonia is sweet. Bring dry wood.
Spent a couple of weeks hiking Torres Del Paine and ice hiking the glaciers near El Calafate. Truly a beautiful part of the world.
You guys still have not caught on.
This is not a matter of celebrating "getting it right" or sneering at a downtick in oil.
This is forever territory, folks. There are no charts to show you recovery. There will be no value to education. There will be no economic policy that changes anything significant at all.
This is the ball game. Oil gets scarce. Someone doesn't eat. That someone complains and that someone's leadership makes a choice: Appeal to the UN to take oil away from the US (we have 3% of population and consume 23% of global oil production) or try to bomb US cities, kill 10s of millions, and thereby cut US oil consumption.
Yes, folks. THAT is what it means. It's not a market issue. It's death.
If you're an American, you have to sign on NOW to the concept of killing them before they come for us.
How does someone that doesn't eat complain, and not become Soylent Green?
You quit driving yet, ya fukking Lib?
Libs quit driving. Americans get ready to eliminate competing consumption. You ready? I am.
