The madness continues. These intersections are ripping out over 500k a month in this economically depressed county. All to feed the pigs at the top of the chain.

You think red light cameras are bad. Just wait till drones are patrolling the freeways.

The money goes up, the shit goes down. All systematic of a population that is not functioning as a democracy.

" You are an anarchist alright, a right wing scum sucking fuk intent on ending FDR's New Deal once and for all."

I'm not. And for some reason you get to state this repeatedly, repeatedly taking nasty shots at people. And yet here you are.

2+ years of defending Obama like a messiah, and insulting/threatening/attacking anything you dont like.

And here you still are.

Whose the professional troll?

I've never denied it nor endorsed it. I dont have the tools to to tell if the temperature of the global temperature has gone up a degree over the last 30 years, do you? Is it possible? Of course. Are any of the politicians willing to do anything about it and lose their power? Fuck no. So where does that leave you and me?

Regardless if the temperature is rising or falling, we should be striving for cleaner energy, and hence cleaner air and cleaner water. Only fools think coal and oil are great solutions to a deteriorating planet.

What gives you this confidence in the president? Isnt it amazing that someone can go from no family connections to being the president? I think thats a great story.

Too bad no one wants to tell it. With as thick as they lay on the propaganda here, one would think it would be everywhere.

You also think the bailouts were a good idea, and war with Syria and lord only knows who else is a grand idea as well. Pretty sure those two opinions are at direct odds with OWS.

But hey, no ones perfect.

Hesitation. Would you like me to bombard you with links to opened government lands to drilling, water to drilling, fracking gov lands like a pin cushion...

Here, this one does a good job of summing it up, with direct quotes from him:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/23/us/politics/in-oklahoma-obama-declares-pipeline-support.html?_r=0

Willing to do things and taking the initiative are two totally different things. One is talk, the other is action. Let me know when a politician in VT puts an amendment on the ballot to put a solar unit on every house in the state- or geothermal heating, or SOMETHING. Perferably sooner than the usual 10 years out they always cop out with.

I bet you dont have the time to read that article I just gave you. It would be waaaaaaaay too real. But you should. Its time to wake up.

This little dream has got to come to an end.

Your endless supply of excuses are soooooo typical ZD.

"Whats he suppose to do?"... Ummmm, maybe not LIE HIS ASS OFF.

Perhaps he can tell them WHAT THE PLAN IS!!! Not say one thing in OK, another in Cali, another in DC. Wtf?

My god man, do you live the rest of your life in such a pathetic level of acceptance? Im going to guess no. Well, then WAKE UP.

No one said FORCE the units onto the roofs. I said at least get a fuckin amendment on an election. They wont. They like their jobs more than they like helping you.

How many more excuses are you going to make for these people?

If you were in there, is this how YOU would behave?

A) Thats not an amendment. Its tax incentives. They lead to no where, hence every state has them. Duh.

B) States Rights dont mean someone goes and lies their ass off. You think EVERYONE in OK wants that pipeline? You dont think OK is about 50/50 like EVERY other state?

Again, you are making more excuses, and completely missing the bottom line in all of this.

Keep making excuses for em. Its exactly what the establishment wants. Dont worry, the idiots on the right are doing the same thing.

Im sure if you get another 08 everything will magically turn around.

Duh.

Put it on the ballot, would the people agree to cancel XX and X or say a sales tax increase of 2% to eliminate their electric bills, and get cleaner air and water.

Thats what real leadership and real democracy would look like.

This current system gives us nothing but shit to pick from.

Its a cop out, a total "feel good" measure meant to not upset the oil man.

What percentage of homes in VT have solar since they instituted the amendments?

We dont need a study or data to know its a ridiculously low number.

Both your neighbors have solar? How much did it cost them?
