I'm so sorry. So sorry that a native Francophone writer whose English happens to be his second language manages to so easily outclass you in what is supposed to be your native tongue. I have a good knowledge of three languages (oral, written) and a passable one in Spanish. You, on the other hand, have a poor handle on the only language you were supposedly raised in. How it must suck to express oneself so poorly in your only one language and thus be deprived of the ability to project a discourse beyond primary school level.

Can You Afford To Retire? Video / http://tinyurl.com/h8xdx
The baby boomer generation is headed for a shock as it hits retirement: many of them will be long on life expectancy but short on savings. The two main strategies for funding retirement -- lifetime pensions and 401(k)-style savings plans -- are in serious trouble. In "Can You Afford to Retire?" FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith ("Is Wal-Mart Good for America?") investigates this looming financial crisis and the outlook for middle-class Americans.(more)»

They're All Against Jobs
by Sen. Fritz Hollings / December 20, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ydr27ze
Who is against jobs in the United States? The big banks, Wall Street, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Business Roundtable, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, Corporate America, the President of the United States, Congress of the United States. Everyone is crying for jobs, but no one seems to understand why there aren't any. And the reason for those opposing jobs is money.
Beginning in 1973, big banks made most of their profit outside of the United States. Industries off-shoring, investing, banks financing the investments, transfer fees, fees and interest on the loans made for bigger profits. Long since, the big banks under the leadership of David Rockefeller have led the way to off-shore and make a bigger profit. Goldman Sachs, AIG, Citicorp and Wall Street, conspiring for a bailout and now using it for bonuses, make more money from the off-shored operations.

Tick-Tick-Tick: Do 60 Minutes And America’s Billionaires Want Us to Beg?/ May 10, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/btvpcxj
If you’re a jobless person looking for food or a wounded vet who needs health care,“60 Minutes” has a solution: Beg a billionaire for it. That was part of the powerful, if covert, message behind last Sunday’s “60 Minutes” broadcast.

The rest of Sunday night’s message, which tracks closely with the right-wing agenda promoted by billionaires like Pete Peterson, goes like this: Keep downsizing government. Keep tolerating and promoting the hijacking of our national wealth by the rich, even as it suffocates the middle class and creates soaring poverty rates. Surrender democratic control over the social safety net to wealthy donors.

And whatever you do, keep stroking their insatiable egos.

The Agenda

Did the “60 Minutes” staff sit around a table and choose this message? Probably not. Chances are we’re just seeing more evidence of a herd mentality among our well-paid elites. But they might as well have.

This ideological bias agenda was glaringly evident in Lesley Stahl’s “Counterinsurgency Cops” story. Viewers weren’t informed that Stahl is on the board of anti-government billionaire Pete Peterson’s Foundation, for example, or that her foundation works closely with the defense contractors of “Fix the Debt.” Those contractors stand to make billions more in taxpayer-funded profits if America’s cities buy into Stahl’s premise and purchase even more military equipment – including tanks, sniperscopes, full battle regalia, night vision goggles, and drones.

The Peterson anti-government vision dovetails nicely with a conservative fantasy world in which all government spending is bad – but military and police spending somehow isn’t “government,” or “big government,” or whatever it is they’re railing against today. We discussed “Counterinsurgency Cops” in Part 1 of this piece.

It depends on the context. But let's not get into this, it's way too complex and abstract for birthers. Instead, here is a suggestion : in all circumstances, choose one way to write it and stick to it. If the laws of average work out, you should be right about 50% if the time. You'll get good ratings from your birther ilk.

Hummmm, what caught my eye on this case is that they did not release the name of the individual. WHY? I asked that same question so I contacted one of my friends and the reason seems to be ..... skin color. Not only is this NCO black, but his victims are .... black, and the John's who used their services are also .... black!!!
And we all know, Obama does not want to let black people look bad while he is in the White House. I am sorry, Obama did not make them black and just because they were black does not mean they have to get involved in these perverted crimes. But to turn a blind eye to the problem only means is that Obama is a ...... RACIST!!!
The fact is that black people are almost four times more likely to be involved in crimes than are white people. And that is not white people's fault!!!
Should we white people just start to commit more crimes so black people will not look as bad? Maybe it is the black people who need to straighten up!
Now, watch one of you Libtards call me a racist! Why knot? Julian Bond just said all TEA Partiers are RACIST and Fascists too!

Member Of Fort Hood Sexual Assault Response Team Accused Of Abuse
by KRISHNADEV CALAMUR - May 14, 2013

An Army sergeant who was part of the Fort Hood, Texas, sexual-assault response office is under investigation for abusive sexual contact.

NPR's Larry Abramson is reporting on the story for our Newscast unit:

"The Army refused to release the name of the sergeant first class, who was part of the response team at Fort Hood, Texas, dealing with sexual assault cases. The man faces accusations of pandering, abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates. The sergeant was suspended from all duties, and has not been charged. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel ordered the Army to investigate."
In a statement, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said the Senate Armed Services Committee, which he chairs, is considering ways to counter the problem of sexual abuse in the military.

"Tragically, the depth of the sexual assault problem in our military was already overwhelmingly clear before this latest highly disturbing report," he said.

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who last week introduced a bill with Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., that would provide sexual assault victims in the military greater protections, called the Fort Hood incident "sickening."

Here is another case of Obama racism. This general should have been court-martialed and given a bad conduct discharge. But he was given a slap on the wrist simply because he is ..... black. And nothing more.
Further more, we are having more and more generals get caught with their dicks in the wrong hole. WHY? Well, all generals are presidential appointments and Obama will only promote the most looney-lefty generals they have and looney-lefties are more likely to put their dicks in the wrong holes!
While most of the right-of-center generals have retired!
I sure hope we do not get into another major war soon.!!!

General William "Kip" Ward demoted for lavish travel and spending

Posted: 11/14/2012
By: Associated Press
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has demoted the former head of U.S. Africa Command who was accused of spending thousands of dollars on lavish travel and other unauthorized expenses, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
Panetta stripped Gen. William "Kip" Ward of a star, which means that he will now retire as a three-star lieutenant general. Ward also has been ordered to repay the government $82,000.
Secretary of the Army John McHugh concurred with Panetta's decision, Pentagon press secretary George Little said in a statement Tuesday.
The demotion came after retired Army Gen. David Petraeus resigned as CIA director because of an extramarital affair and Marine Gen. John Allen was being investigated for potentially improper communications with a woman.
"Secretary Panetta insists that leaders within the Department of Defense exemplify both professional excellence and sound judgment," Little said. "The secretary is committed to ensuring that any improprieties or misconduct by senior officers are dealt with swiftly and appropriately."
A spokesman for Ward said Tuesday that the general "has never been motivated by personal gain and fulfilled each and every mission assigned to him and served his country and the men and women assigned to his commands with distinction."
"While Gen. Ward is not perfect he has always been guided by his faith in God and the belief that there is no greater honor as a patriot than to lead those who choose to serve our nation in the armed forces," spokesman Chris Garrett said in a statement.
Retiring as a three-star general will cost Ward about $30,000 a year in retirement pay, giving him close to $208,802 a year rather than the $236,650 he would receive as a four-star general.

BACKFIRE: ABC, CNN, NBC CALL FOR WHITE HOUSE TO RELEASE BENGHAZI EMAILS by JOHN NOLTE 15 May 2013

***UPDATE: NBC's senior White House correspondent joined the chorus Wednesday. On his MSNBC show, "The Daily Rundown," Chuck Todd looked into the camera and said, "Attention White House: Release all the emails." The headline has been updated to add NBC.
Assuming they are the ones who leaked to CNN an email written by Ben Rhoades (a Deputy National Security Advisor close to the President), the White House might have been too clever by half Tuesday. An act that was obviously meant to pour water on the Benghazi fire started by an ABC News report, has only ended up being gasoline. Now both CNN and ABC have joined conservative media in calling for the White House to release all the emails surrounding the editing of the CIA talking points.
Friday, in a bombshell report that blew the long-simmering Libya scandal wide open and right into the arms of the mainstream media, ABC's Jonathan Karl reported that an email written by Rhoades specifically mentioned the State Department's concerns about the CIA talking points. Here is how Karl transcribed the Rhoades email:
We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation. We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.
