    Remembering John Boehner sitting up there with VP Biden, only seeing Paul Ryan sitting up there is more disgusting.

    I’m laughing at the debate Paul Ryan had 4 years ago in which he was schooled by his senior and superior. His face is laughable too.

    Love the space race analogy about not denying Sputnik was up there but working together put a man on the moon twelve years later. Analogy refers to climate change problems.

    Forty-eight states are happy with $2.00 or less gas. Out stupid governor got our legislature to pass an income tax cut, and now we are not getting tax money on oil,and they’re griping. Our state is always a day late and a dollar short, or actually 30 years late. So behind. They’ve depended on oil for so long, they thought it would last forever. Not forward looking at all.
