On Friday, President Obama announced that he was abandoning previous plans to enact stronger smog emission regulations. Do you agree with the decision?

I still cannot comprehend why so many conservatives are so opposed to environmental action. The bottom line is, we all share this planet and we will all have to pay the price.

felixdacat; I am guessing you are responding to my comments to Ranks below. you need to read the entire discussion again before going off the deep end, wise up!

09/09/11 4:39 pm

and next time get your facts right!

09/09/11 4:37 pm

felixdacat; not one time have I ever said anything about forcing my beliefs on anyone else. I have a feeling from what you just said that you are a hater regardless of what my beliefs are. just hit the ignore button big boy and make us both happy.

09/08/11 3:01 am I told you before...religious beliefs are deeply personal....keep them to yourself and out of government and I won't HATE otherwise and I despise you as any other enemy of a free America.

Jo at...I don't care if you believe something which cannot be proven....but I do care a great deal when you wish to apply your beliefs to public policy

BonyTacos...liberals are needed to ensure that folks like you never procure any real power in this country.

@chipmonk just because Obama doesn't have a "mission accomplished" banner doesn't mean he hasn't done anything. google "what the fuck has Obama done" for the list.

what the heck? who WANTS smog? what kind of sick weirdo doesn't enjoy clean air?

When a Democrat wants to achieve success, he or she will abandon the liberal policies and adopt conservative policies. Make you wonder why we even need Democrats??

@tellastore Why are u and most everyone south of the Mason-Dixon line so anti-Obama? I think u resent a fellow u once wouldn't have allowed to vote in Mississippi is now Big Boss Man. So much hate would almost be funny if it wasn't so sad such ignorance still runs rampant in the Southern U.S.A.

Obama and democrats? how about you try and be productive, because your generic clip on a party is only half the story. face it, the republicans are just as bad, they are the same party really, the only difference is a slight social tendency

No. He promised so much CHANGE but has delivered so little. I won't vote for him again in 2012 unless he really puts his plans in motion before election time. Why does he keep wimping out under Congressional pressure. It's as if he's letting FOX News control his presidency.

But honestly if this is how politics has always been then never support your president. I mean as much as I thought Bush was HORRIBLE, that time when they threw a shoe at him. I was actually glad that he dodged those shoes. Because u know why he is still my president. He mayb a f-up but he's my f-up

09/04/11 7:59 pm

Ranks; I was ok with some of Clintons policies and thought he did good in foreign affairs. I always look at the people the President surrounds himself with also. I get really tired of the race card being stuck in my face when I say I just don't care for Obamas politics

And make the people who don't like him at least feel like there included. That's why liberals are pissed. But that side gives him NO credit whatsoever. Every piece of legislation that he has passed is straight down the middle or a little to the right or left but pretty even. Things gotta change

Don't get me wrong. Some angles are just ass backwards but try and remain open to other aspects. But my viewed diffently became skewed watching George Bush. U have to admit...I don't know where to even begin. Obama is no prized piece but honestly u have to admit he is risking his presidency to try

Powers that be dictate this life. Not my ultimate choice but the shape of this country. I didnt agree with Clinton growing up but as I've gotten older and wiser I've seen things that have shaped my point of view. What I have learned is always try and remain objective. To bring in all angles

@Jopat I agree with that book. I agree with that generation being the greatest in our country. I believe the only to beat the man is be the man.

I guess I believe there is some kind of God or maybe I'd like to believe there is. so religion plays a pretty small role in my political beliefs. I firmly believe people have the right to believe in whatever they want but if you are a Christian in this country you are treated as

the question that really bothered me was, would you sell your citizenship for 1 million dollars? the answers made me ill, the hate not only towards our country but to anyone that disagreed was astonishing! So I'm sorry but when I see one of these haters I can't let it go.....

09/04/11 7:22 pm

The kids of that generation turned into hippies, activists, extremists whatever you want to call it. they realized they couldn't beat the man so they put on suits and got elected. They are teaching in our colleges and on down.

09/04/11 7:18 pm

your right I'm in my late 50's. A few years ago I read Tom Brokaw's book about the greatest generation. I had 5 uncles that were scattered around the world fighting for the worlds freedom. they came home and built a life, had families got jobs and did little or no complaining.

Ranks; there is much truth in what you say and I do agree with much of what you said. When I first got on this app about 1month ago I was looking forward to what everyone had to say. And then the total hate and disrespect i was reading was very disturbing and it was against this country!

Our own demise could be this partisan bickering. We are 1 house we must hold this country together and try to find a way to stop tearing it down. U can't have one without the other. My words I'm sure sound stupid to alot of people out there but maybe that's part of the problem...I care that much.

Meet us in the middle or this country will fall into a stalemate that will lead 2 a build up of frustration that will eventually one way or another topple this country like an implosion from within or an invasion from another while our defenses are down while we keep treating each other like enemies

I personally don't believe Jesus would say "Hey let people get cancer & other diseases b/c it's more important 4 the multi-millionaire 2 become a billionaire. The meek shall inherit. The rich will go last. Thats the small aspect of a bigger picture that I see & I feel I have proof B/c it is written.

Kinda of sound a little narrow minded. Like u don't ever understand other peoples point of view. Hey man, me I try and ask myself whats right and just. I think also what happens is is that people in this country who are mostly of Christian background, have totally different interpretations on wwjd.
