Ambrose: Thoughtless regulation could break the Internet

I'm sorry but it's the democrats who made the difference. Without them, led by the supposed #1 democrat Clinton, the authorization would not have passed. And, like I said, she abandoned that position once it was of no benefit.

I know it is hard for you liberals to understand but tax cuts can expand the economy and increase revenue to the government. And that's what happened under Bush. And Obama's debt is by far higher than any president It's a plain, easily researchable fact recognizable to anyone who can add. Hint: Economic Report of the President

No, there were more deaths in Afghanistan because Obama increased troop presence there despite what history tells us (ask the Soviets). And it's very telling that you make no mention of those over 1600 deaths under Obama. Justifiable, I guess while Bush's are not.

It is absolutely amazing how irrational liberals become when talking about Bush!

Ambrose: Thoughtless regulation could break the Internet

@rzimdars: Nice democrat talking points but as with many of them there's not much truth there.

Obama has added far more debt than Bush. Not even close! During the Bush tax cuts (which were for everyone) revenue to the government increased. Bush's war?? The democrats, including the presumed next nominee, were right there in support until it was no longer politically expedient.

And why not mention Afghanistan where there have almost been 3 times more deaths under Obama than Bush??

Not surprising coming from someone who would attack "free enterprise"

[quote][b]rzimdars[/b] -

Leaving regulation of the internet to "free enterprise" is like getting advice on the health effects of smoking from tobacco companies, or getting advice on how to regulate the internet from Jay Ambrose. Both will have negative health consequences.

There is a place for regulation but "free enterprise" is the reason we can afford powerful computers that can do wonderful things such things as post on a website blog. It is why we enjoy the quality of life that we do.

Leaving too much to government, you get things like the explosion in debt seen in the last several years, up to $18 trillion and counting, of which there are definitely negative consequences

Funke: Easy fixes available for immigration reform

@marshalld: It seems that you're always eager to criticize the republicans for doing nothing on immigration but PLEASE explain to me why Obama and the democrats failed to pass immigration reform when they had total control of congress (including a super majority in the senate) as Obama had promised???

Obama spurns GOP with expansive immigration orders

@mpd0.59: With a "comprehensive" approach we get a behemoth of a bill that nobody really understands and that's full of unintended consequences because it wasn't properly thought out.

Sounds familiar doesn't it.

Obama spurns GOP with expansive immigration orders

@mpd0.59: I'm sorry but this pales in comparison to the political cover that Reid has given Obama by letting virtually nothing come to a vote for the last several years in the senate.

In any case the targeted approach with smaller bills is a more sensible approach. Bseides, the comprehensive bill is a revenue raising bill which means that it must originate in the House.

Republicans "emboldened by their sweeping victories in the midterms" will still refuse to pass their own bill

[/quote]

Not true. The House has passed 5 individual bills on immigration reform. This targeted approach makes much more sense than the (1) 1200 page monstrosity passed by the senate.

[quote]

I agree with the President on this one, "if you don't like it, pass a bill of your own".

[/quote] So I guess you disagreed with obama the numerous times when he made the case that executive action is the wrong way to do this.

Luckily you don't have to be a member of the 1% to make a great living. In fact, the poor in America on average have a better quality of life than the middle class in Europe. And we have our free market to thank for that.

if you looked further, much of "Obama's" debt is the direct result of Bush's tax breaks for the wealthy and 2 wars.

Speaking of unsubstantiated claims!! This statement is just totally false. You would think that the blame Bush crap would get old.

Zandi: U.S. corporate tax code to blame for inversions

It's fine to close loopholes but the effective rate needs to be reduced. Companies already take advantage of loopholes yet they are still moving abroad.

Reduce the effective rate and you will keep companies from leaving and also bring others here. This can actually increase tax revenues and produce jobs!

It's really a no brainer but unfortunately we have leadership with no brains!

It was the democrats who, in a totally partisan manner, formulated and passed this law. Anyway this law was terribly written and terribly implemented...it needs to be repealed.

UGA OC Bobo wants improved downfield passing

@Manurestopper: The key is to take what the defense gives you. If they've got 8 or 9 in the box, you better be able to throw it or you're not gonna be successful. I'll take a 5 yd slant all night long if it's there.

Let's have balance and put ourselves in position to pound it in the 4th quarter (much like we saw against Clemson)

A tough image is nice but it don't mean squat. The W is all that matters.

Obama cautions against using force to solve crises

@dahreese: Yes the US has had strange bedfellows (like Stalin for example) over time but America is by far the most generous nation on this earth and has done more to spread freedom than any other nation again by far.

I hate to break it to you but the roots of islamic fundamentalism has its origins in Wahhabisim that began in the 1700s and gained strength with the relinquishment of French and British colonial control. So your, and other leftists, theory that the root of all evil in the middle east is the US is total BULL! But it's not surprising that after your reading of leftist fiction that you come to that conclusion,

To point out hypocracy, i.e. when Bush did something similar to or worse than what Obama did, the Obama haters didn't shoot anywhere near the same amount of venom towards Bush.

You're right but the Bush haters shot plenty of venom then gave Obama a pass. See my above post about hypocrisy

Obama: US won't stop confronting Islamic State

[quote]for things which Bush did far worse [/quote]

Politifact (August 2013) said the statement that Bush took more vacation is accurate but needs clarification. Here is the clarification: Bush spent 323 days at Crawford, 26 days at Kennebunkport, and 18 days at miscellaneous places. Obama spent 92 days at Martha's Vineyard and Hawaii at the same point in his presidency. Any intelligent, objective person would say that Crawford is far more conducive to actually doing some work and that Martha's Vineyard and Hawaii are much more like vacation spots - well they are vacation spots.

Bush did far worse? I don't think so.

[quote]

As I recall, when we were alll over Bush taking a RECORD number of vacation days...Fox ran 24/7 .

[/quote]

I don't really care about the vacation issue but you're right liberals like you were all over him and left leaning news outlets were all over him during his tenure. It's absolutely amazing to me that you guys think that you are completely devoid of hypocrisy. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Obama: US won't stop confronting Islamic State

[quote][b]franklingrady[/b] -

@tgb: 'Cause it's just funny to hear right wing extremists criticize Obama for certain things––vacation time, inability to speak without preparation (which is completely absurd in Obama's case, by the way, and purely a reaction against all the heat Bush took for his mangling of the English language)––which Bush refined to an art form of incompetence. Bush was the master. "Now watch this drive."

[/quote]

I have never criticized Obama for his vacations. There are NUMEROUS other more important things that he deserves criticism for.

So you don't like people criticizing Obama's speaking ability then you criticize bush for his speaking ability? Really?

Too funny!!

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
