Again you make wild unsubstantiated claims. You don't think Warren Buffet is greedy? I disagree.
Next, "The biggest private charity donour on earth, uncontested.", ah, he is not listed in the top 29 largest in the United States much less the world. Oh, the Gates Foundation is the largest!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wealthie...
Yep, Warren Buffet is the SECOND wealthest Americans behind Bill Gates and whereas Bill Gates is the largest private charity donor, Buffet is not even listed!
But I am sure you see Bill Gates as Evil .... because he did not endorse Obama!!!
1. Buffet passed Gates last year, but it is a see-saw battle;
2. His charity is the largest, though why it's not listed, I have no idea;
3. Bill Gates is a great self-made man. One of the last of his kind. Extremely generous donour and, unlike cynic LRS, I do not think he does it as a tax write-off. Who cares if he did not endorse Obama? Doesn't take any of his generosity away. You see, Rogue, I'm not like you, I don't care who he endorses if he does good. Incidentally, I admire the man.
4. Is Buffet greedy? Is Gates greedy? Of course they are, it's how they got there. Doesn't keep them from giving some of it away. Anyway, ask anyone in the know. Yes, money is important, but power is what it's all about.

I am sure Jacques remembers that DOT.COM bubble in the late 1990's. Well, as the DOT.COM stocks went south investors moved their money in companies that "looked" like they were doing well like .... Enron.
Now, a lot of their employees also had large stock holdings in their own company so when Enron folded, they lost most of their retirement portfolio.
When my, now ex-, wife joined Delta Airlines in 1992 she was rolling all of her 401K into .... DAL. And I suggested she keep it not more than 25% in DAL. I have no idea whether she followed my advice as we divorced two years later.
It seems she was having a fling with her DAL supervisor. Yep, I just thought she was going through menopause when I found out she was not pausing-between-men!

Celebrated historian Bertram Oxley has uncovered a memorandum from former Japanese Emperor Hirohito to Admiral Yamamoto dated December 6, 1941, showing that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was motivated by an offensive film made by Charlie Chaplin ridiculing Japanese cuisine.
"Contrary to historical accounts over the last seventy years," Professor Oxley said in an interview today with the BBC, "What appeared to be a meticulously planned surprise attack was actually a spontaneous demonstration by moderate sushi connoisseurs in the Imperial Navy in response to a hateful and offensive movie. Thereafter, extremist elements within the Japanese military co-opted the spontaneous attack, transforming it into the overseas contingency operation sometimes referred to as 'World War II.'"
The discovery has created a sensation in scholarly circles. "This is a remarkable find," declared Reginald Smythe, chairman of the Progressive Historians Association and former Obama State Department official. "Had President Roosevelt condemned this movie­ instead of uttering that infernal 'Day of Infamy' provocation ­ the war could have been avoided and millions of lives would have been saved."
Reached at his home in Houston, former President George H. W. Bush, an aviator in the Pacific during the war, expressed skepticism. "It's simply inconceivable that the Japanese First Air Fleet, with six aircraft carriers, could have staged a spur of the moment attack on an island thousands of nautical miles from the Japanese homeland with such stealth and precision." Most experts dismissed Mr. Bush's remarks, however, since it's widely understood that World War II was primarily his son's fault.
White House spokesman Jay Carney, asked this afternoon about the memo's discovery stated, "Of course, hindsight's 20-20. But one can only wonder how much pain and suffering could have been averted had FDR simply apologized to Hirohito at the outset."
"Fortunately," Carney continued, waving off questions from White House reporters anxious to return to questions about Mitt Romney's grooming habits, "We've evolved to a more sophisticated strategy of leading from behind, so we're unlikely to repeat the disastrous mistakes of the past."
If Hilary had been running the State Department then, we’d all be living on EASY STREET today.

AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka makes about $283,000 per year. Gerald McEntee, the president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), makes $480,000.

Encore: United States of ALEC
November 30, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/cuwj5qy
In an encore broadcast, Moyers & Company presents “United States of ALEC,” a report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of — ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a “nonpartisan public-private partnership”. But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers — each accomplished without the public ever knowing who’s behind it. One Wisconsin politician describes ALEC as “a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests.”
“United States of ALEC” is a collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs including the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report.

"Natural Born Citizen of the United States of America" clause of our US Constitution requiring the President of the United States to be a 'Natural born citizen of the USA' IS taken directly from scripture and it IS written into 'our constitution' based on what they themselves had read in the Bible in Deuteronomy 17:14-15, based on God's instructions to the Nation of Israel for choosing a king.
Deuteronomy 17:14-15
In this part of the Bible, God tells the Israelites that in order to qualify as King of Israel a man must be a "natural born" Israelite ... 14 ¶ When thou shalt come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee,
and shalt possess it, and dwell therein, if thou say, I will set a King over me, like
as all the nations that are about me, 15 Then thou shalt make him King over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall
choose, from among thy brethren shalt thou make a King over thee; thou shalt
not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and %$#." (I Samuel 15:2-3)

You mean the same book that encourages raping of women and dashing children into pieces ("Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished." (Isaiah 13:15-16)

Okay, how about the following scenario:

Does attaching mobile tracking devices to the undercarriage of a defendant's Jeep whle his vehicle was parked on a public street, agents invaded an area in which he possesses a reasonable expectation of privacy, thereby violating his Fourth Amendment rights?

What if the Jeep was parked in his garage?
