Since when is being hit by a stone deadly? Very rarely. If the Geneva convention had existed at that time, David would've been court-martialed. As a civilian, he would've been accused of 2nd degree homicide and jailed 25 years. What about the rest of the story, Rogue?

Mitt Romney and his style of conservatism is contrary to everything Jesus supposedly taught and most real Christians of every race apparently understand the basic concept of fairness and equality, but alas, many white evangelical Christians seem to have lost their way. LOL

Petraeus Testimony on Benghazi Reveals Conspiracy to Catch Terrorists

By Dan Amira at New York Magazine

http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/11/petraeus...

"SNIP..........

Then why alter the talking points at all? AP still:

The recently resigned spy chief explained that references to terrorist groups suspected of carrying out the violence were removed from the public explanation of what caused the attack so as not to tip off the groups that the U.S. intelligence community was on their trail....

"There was an interagency process to draft it, not a political process," Schiff said. "They came up with the best assessment without compromising classified information or source or methods. So changes were made to protect classified information."

So there was a conspiracy ... to catch the terrorists. According to Huffington Post, John McCain, "who also attended the Petraeus briefing, said nothing in his remarks afterward about Rice or his demand for an investigation by a new select panel."

Pelosi: Taxes must go up for wealthy

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi couldn't be more clear: The Bush tax cuts for the rich have to expire.

When ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked Pelosi in an interview whether she would accept a deal that did not include tax rate hikes for the rich, the House’s top Democrat had a short answer:“No.”
“The president made it very clear in his campaign that there is not enough—there are not enough resources,” Pelosi said in an interview aired Sunday on ABC's “This Week.

“Just to close loopholes is far too little money … If it's going to bring in revenue, the president has been very clear that the higher income people have to pay their fair share.”
Despite that, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is trying to pretend otherwise, telling Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer that Pelosi and President Obama aren't on the same page on the budget.

“What I hear you saying is that the president is not in lock-step with Nancy Pelosi when it comes to tax rates versus revenue meaning and suggesting that he may go along with your deal as opposed to raising tax rates. Do you see that as a possibility?” Hemmer asked.
“I see that as a possibility. I think elections are over. Let’s sit down and find a bipartisan way that we can solve this problem, not go to a fiscal cliff while at the same time have a pro-growth agenda where we grow jobs,” McCarthy said.
Here's what President Obama said about tax cuts for the wealthy in his press conference last Wednesday: "But when it comes to the top 2 percent, what I’m not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don’t need it, which would cost close to a trillion dollars."
That sounds an awful lot like what Pelosi was saying this weekend. Which means, as usual, House Republican leadership is full of shit.

Patrick Murphy wins again, Allen West still won't give up

Allen West has been clamoring for a full recount of the early vote in St. Lucie County, Florida, the county he lost to rival Patrick Murphy. He got what he wanted—the full recount of early votes—with the end result being an increase in the vote count for Murphy.

A recount Saturday and Sunday of more than 37,000 St. Lucie County ballots from all eight days of early voting had been demanded by partisans of Allen West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, after Murphy's narrow victory Nov. 6. Results of that recount, announced shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday by St. Lucie County Canvassing Board member Tod Mowery, placed Murphy farther ahead of West than before the two-day effort began. The results killed West campaign hopes the recount would narrow the gap to less than 0.5 percent and trigger an automatic recount of all votes under state law.[...]

Mowery said the final St. Lucie count was 65,841 votes for Murphy and 52,704 for West. Murphy picked up 274 votes, according to Mowery, while West gained 32 votes. The results are unofficial.Murphy said his campaign has been confident since Nov. 6 election night, when returns showed him leading West by a slim margin.

But West's campaign said there were irregularities in balloting on the first three days of early voting in St. Lucie County. West partisans were unhappy when Walker chose instead to recount three different days on Nov. 11.

West is still refusing to concede, and is still implying that he thinks there was fraud in the vote and that he could decide to fight on.

"Since election day, we have been working for a fair and accurate accounting of the election outcome in which voters can put their full trust," West said. "We will review the results of today's recount and the other available data to determine how to proceed."

On top of that, he's got a cadre of supporters who have been filing motions on their own, apart from the campaign. Two attorneys who have been active West volunteers, Jeffrey Scott Shapiro of Boca Raton and Mark Young of West Palm Beach, have petitioned the state for a recount of the entire districts. An active St. Lucie County Republican, Beverly Joy Hires, has petitioned the state for a full recount of that county.

West has until November 30 to file suit to contest the election. His team is sounding pretty aggressive on that front, attacking the supervisor of elections in St. Lucie County, Gertrude Walker:


Chris LaCivita, a top West strategist, said in a Sunday interview that Walker had badly botched the vote-counting process, giving the campaign ammunition to use.

“Each day that Gertrude Walker and her collection of idiots continues to mismanage, misappropriate, and not do their job just provides us with more evidence to use in an election contest and makes it more likely that we will do that,” LaCivita said.

That sounds like a campaign that's going to drag this out as long as they possible can.

Please chip in $3 to help Patrick Murphy fight this legal battle.

Rubio joins Republicans claiming rich will evade higher taxes

Republicans still refusing to countenance modestly higher tax rates for the wealthiest Americans are facing a moral dilemma. If tax cuts for the gilded-class do not in fact drive economic growth and job creation, then the GOP has been draining the United States Treasury for the sole purpose of needlessly padding the bank accounts of the rich. Unfortunately for the ideologues of the right, recent analyses from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and Congressional Research Service as well as the robust U.S. economic expansion following the 1993 Clinton tax hikes have laid waste to the Republican "job creators" myth. Which means conservatives can either come clean, or come up with a different rationale for their budget-busting, upper-income tax cuts.

Florida Senator and 2016 White House hopeful Marco Rubio has opted for the later approach. Joining a long list of conservative con men, Rubio argued that raising tax rates on the rich is pointless because they will get around paying them anyway.

Rubio made that point last week during his first visit to Iowa. There, he suggest that Americans shouldn't expect more tax revenue from the likes of Mitt Romney:


"The billionaires and millionaires that are going to be impacted by higher rates, they can afford to hire the best lawyers, lobbyists and accountants in America to figure out how not to pay those higher rates. Rubio told National Journal's Major Garrett at The Atlantic Washington Ideas Forum. "The people that are going to get stuck by that bill are the small businesses, the partnerships, the S corporations, that cannot hire the lawyers to get them out of it."

If Rubio's pitch sounds familiar, it should. After all, during his 2004 reelection campaign President George W. Bush said much the same thing in response to John Kerry's proposal to roll back the Bush tax cuts for the top two percent of earners.

THere are already children in school that are asking their teachers how it can be that a few adults don't believe in global warming.

I personally think the birther nuts and flat earthers are hilarious, and I'm old enough that I won't be around to see the damage they will cause America so I don't lose sleeep over it.

I just can't picture someone being that ignorant.

RESTRICTED FROM REPLYING TO GB’S POST ONCE AGAIN SO I POST OPEN.

Ronald Reagan:“[I]f you don’t [stop Medicare] and I don’t do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”[1961]

George H.W. Bush: Described Medicare in 1964 as “socialized medicine.”[1964]

Barry Goldwater:“Having given our pensioners their medical care in kind, why not food baskets, why not public housing accommodations, why not vacation resorts, why not a ration of cigarettes for those who smoke and of beer for those who drink.”[1964]

Bob Dole: In 1996, while running for the Presidency, Dole openly bragged that he was one of 12 House members who voted against creating Medicare in 1965.“I was there, fighting the fight, voting against Medicare ... because we knew it wouldn’t work in 1965.”[1965]

!!!!!!!!!!BURGLARY IN FLORIDA!!!!!!!!!!
(You just can't make this stuff up!!)

When southern Florida resident Nathan Radlich's house was burglarized recently, thieves ignored his wide screen plasma TV, his VCR, and even left his Rolex watch. What they did take, however, was a white box filled with a grayish-white powder.(That's the way the police report described it.)

A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said that it looked similar to high grade cocaine and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big time.

Later, Nathan stood in front of numerous TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars:'Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago.'

The next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a local drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The white box was there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained. Scotch taped to the box was this note which said: Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day.

And you thought California was the land of fruits and nuts.

Florida had only 29 votes and they all went of Obama!!!
But what I think is really funny is that Roseanne Barr and Cindy Sheehan got almost 60,000 people votes.

Beautiful panorama, thank you. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Shows the president's knack for manners, diplomacy, protocol. A great U.S. Ambassador, a great showcase to the world that, incidentally and in most cases, would've globally accorded him 75% of its vote on Nov 6. Would you somehow find something wrong with the visit to Myanmar and the way it went? Reason I ask is because you're not the type to reflect kindly on anything President Obama does. Is this a new and kinder and particlurlarly more intelligent Guru?

BTW, too bad you didn't get the meaning of the word "flirt" here as used in the despatch.
