My wife had Fox on last night when I was getting ready for bed. This blow-hard was defending the President. I don't watch Fox, I find their arguments tedious, clearly you watch it more than I do and you must be in favor of the defense of this administration. So far as the Market is concerned, it is on a sugar high from all the Feds money printing. Show me an investment bright spot. The only way to avert collapas is for the Fed. to reduce money printing slowley, but then we have the dangers of terrible inflasion. I continue arguments with an Econ Professor friend of mine who insists we cannot have high imterest and runaway Inflasion at the same time. I disagree. Have you seen the first time unemployment numbers released today? And the holiday spending is greatly reduced?
Jerusalem On-line reports for following. It would appear the Russian President who is a former KGB officers envies President Obama.
Russian President Vladimir Putin in a press conference today addressed a series of issues on the agenda, including the complex relations with Ukraine, the Edward Snowden leaks, and the arrest of [filtered word] Riots punk band members. In regards to the Edward Snowden leaks, which led to the revelation that the US National Security spied on Americans.
Putin needled the US administration, “I envy Obama, who can spy and emerge unscathed.” Putin clarified that Russia did not discuss with Snowden intelligence information or the leaks, even though he has since sought asylum in Russia.
He also addressed environmental groups that are protesting against Russia’s oil drilling in the Arctic and stressed that he intends to implement Russia’s rights, despite the protests.
President Nixon's political operatives broke into a office and the crime cost Nixon his Presidency. President Obama's operatives have broken into the private communications of 350 million Americans.
Yeah he is and it's costing us a cool 4 million.
HOLD ON. We have a law which was written by and passed by Democrats in Congress. The Supreme Court found the main parts of the law to be Constuitutional. This is the Law of the Land and the time lines and mandates are just that....the law. Did Congress amend the law to extend the mandentory dates? Did the Executive Branch return to the Legislative Branch of government and request the law be fixed as is required under our system of checks and balances? What legal process was enacted to give these insurance companies the ability to thwart the law? Will soccerlover who posted above be considered a scofflaw for not having insurance as mandated by this law of the land?posted @ Thursday, December 19, 2013 - 09:28
So...you are cheering the radical EPA. Look at what just happened to one of their 'climate experts'.
EPA climate expert headed to jail
John C. Beale, EPA's highest paid employee and climate expert, was sentenced today to 32 months behind bars and ordered to pay $1.3 million in restitution to the federal government.
Among his frauds and deceptions -- he falsely posed as an agent of the CIA to boost his image and get out of work.
Once again truth is stranger than fiction. Beale said he did it for "greed." A greedy climate expert?
So Matt. You keep on cheering the crooks and frauds who are still trying to beat the dead horse of Man Made Global Warming down the road and are in cahoots with the Environmental/Industrial Complex.

When the Chinese were putting on line one coal fired power plant a week, many US companies went to China trying to interest them in adding scrubbers like we have in the USA to remove harmful particlents from smoke stacks. The Chinese communist government was not interested. The EPA is a government agency and there must be a will within government to enact reasonable regulations, but in the case of the Chi-Coms,they were not interested. Now we have the EPA invoking draconian regulations based of a flawed and disproven theory. We will all pay for their recklessness.
We are 17 trillion dollars in debit, yet government spending will increase. The budget deal was made on the backs of military members who will receive a harsh reduction in their benefits. All this thanks to the US Senate.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 09:08
Let's not forget candidate Obama's speech to supporters in San Framcisco that under his plan utilities retes would necessary skyrocket. The Obama administration's war on coal will bankrupt people getting their energy from conventional generators. Sen. Joe Manchin (D. West Virginia) confirmed the War on Coal by the radical and out-of-control EPA. This is one of the President's promises he is sadly keeping.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 08:46

They were exceptional articles. When I was into photography I would see how the Playboy photog's set up their lighting because the lights were reflected in the models eyes.
The silicone-cowboy blog...great news source. You are really stretching on this one. The recent shooters have had serious mental issues. Students interviewed discribed this Colorado shooter as an avid socolist or a communist and one who believe in income redistribution. "Gun nuts" as you describe them are topically conservative or right wingers? What is your credible source. Are these people who believe in the Second Amendment nuts? I have a friend who is a class three firearms dealer who holds strong Democrat views. Is he too a right wing nut? Your stereotypes are showing.
I don't listen to Fox, I find the arguing of pro and con on every issue very tedious. If what you say is true, are they the only ones telling the truth about the ACA Train Wreck? The Chinese news agency Xinhua and the Russian agency Pravda have reported the ACA problems as well as The Politico, Daily Beast (Kristen Powers had her insurance canceled and the government exchange policy cost her hundreds more for the same coverage) and The Hill which are hardly conservative publications. Even a radical blogger on the Daily Kos reported early on his problems stating the ACA was not what was promised and noted his bitter disappointment. All these sources report massive problems with the ACA.
The ACA never had the support of Americans, there was never over 50 percent support for this thing. Mostly the polls showed 53 to 57 opposed to it. The ACA was drafted behind closed doors, was passed by only one party, the bill was never read nor understood, it was sold to a minority of people through lies and deceit, and now those who voted for it call it a Train Wreck and are fleeing a toxic President. Then the person who is implementing this train wreck fail to answer questions of Congress who has oversite. More people are now uninsured because of the ACA. What do you think, Hmmmmm?
Students described the shooter as an avid communist. He also believes strongly in income redistribution, a topic that has been touted by this Administration.posted @ Sunday, December 15, 2013 - 09:39

Well...I was really talking about both. The S. African Goverment has allowed their country to decline. We know the sorry state of our government. I have been a major player in several Presidential protection details. We begin at least two week in advance of the visit with the President's Secret Service advance teams. We provide names of "usual suspects". who may disrupt the event. We meet with other advocates and labor unions who will hold demonstrations and go over the rules. Planning, meetings and communication are key elements. An event in a foreign country is a little more difficult because we have foreign egos and customs to be aware of. But, that is no excuse to allow such a breach of security. Us old guys have developed ways of working around these concerns, I fear the younger guys are dropping the ball. Our administration holds no feet to the fire which might explain such sloppiness.
Typical of an inept government.posted @ Saturday, December 14, 2013 - 09:10
Man Made or AGW. It was the desire of the IPCC to prove that global warming was man made. All the models used to explore this were weighted to assume that carbon was the cause and no information concerning solar or geological conditions were considered. AGW cannot be proven and all of the temperture increases and declines can be attributed to natural conditions. The Earth has been much warmer in the past and it has been much colder im the past, all caused by natural varations. The IPCC was finally loathed to admit their models were wrong (slightly) and no global warming has occurred for years.

Reasonable??? Ok, I'm not going to go any farther with this and waste my time. There were likely people who supported Nero when Rome burned. But as this thing continues to crumble and fall apart, you contine to tune your fiddle.
The problem is mpd0, because of the snafus in the ACA people, the government and the insurance companies have no idea who is truly insured. People might register but unless they have received a letter of coverage from the insurance company, the registered individual is likely not insured. There was a story yesterday that the insurance companies and ACA officials are going over applications by hand because of errors in the implementation and coding within the ACA which continues to be aTrain Wreck. The Administration today extended the dead lines dates for those suffering from chronic illness. They just don't know.
Your Factcheck is full of holes. They talk about "Experts" saying this and that. These individuals are from the Administration which has a track record of lies. Lies about the unemploymment, lies about foreign policy, lies avout your doctor and your insurance. Lies, lies, lies. Factcheck diminishes the employment statistics by focusing on part-time workers and glossing over the fact that full timers have been moved to part time status (under 30 hrs.) causing Jimmy Hoffa Jr to lament the ACA will fundamentally change the American workweek. Hardly a right wing source.
Lastly, I'm not going back through the pages of this bad law, my blood pressure can't take it, but use some logic. If you were an insurance company CEO, would you get your company involved in this bad plan without guanetees you company will not go broke? This is a form of a government subsidy given to business to do something the government wants done.
The intent pfmthe law might be very good but ots implementatio makes ot a It's a bad law mpd0 and it is causing grave damage why many up for reelection are fleeing from it and the President.posted @ Friday, December 13, 2013 - 11:03
@Normaltown yellow dog:
Cruz is a crazy talk spokesperson for the Insurance industry? Have you heard the Obama Administration has ordered the insurances companies to cover people even though there is no proof that the individual is insured? Remember, there is a provision in the ACA that ensures the the insurance companies will make money. If the insurance companies do not make money from the insured, the tax payers will make up the difference. So, who is in bed with the insurance industry? Don't believe the lie of the TrainWreck.
OK...what did he say that was incorrect? He did what the voters in his district wanted him to do. He tried to save American from the lies and the Train Wreck that is The ACA. What did he do that was so terrible?
They keep trying to beat this Global Warming dead horse down the road when observations have long proved the myth of man made global warming. Remember, a respected climate scientists predicted the Arctic would be ice free on September 22 of this year. He was dead wrong. The models have failed, researchers and scientists are running away from the man made global warming lie, and we have recently recorded the coldest Temp. in the Antarctic.posted @ Friday, December 13, 2013 - 08:57
