The good news is that Libya chose a human rights lawyer as it's Prime Minister.
The Libyans do not want the extremists to control their country; they had 40 years of a dictator, they love the Americans and I think we should help them.
See here is the problem-liberals don't know the difference between extreme and extreme: "Islam is our belief system and the source for any jurisprudence, and anything against Shariah is refused," Ali Zidan said in a statement. Get it through your heads. Shariah and America are not compatible. Shariah and democracy are not compatible. The Islamists hate everything about us. And Ali Zidan is an Islamist. Shariah for all under the guise of human rights. Got Burka?

The Supreme Court on Tuesday turned aside a request from Ohio to hear a case in which a lower court ruled the state couldn't stop early voting during the three-day period before the election. The decision is a victory for the Obama campaign, which had successfully argued that Ohio could not allow military and overseas voters to vote during the three day period unless that opportunity was available to all voters.

Secretary of State Jon Husted announced he was appealing the case to the Supreme Court last week, arguing the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals decision didn't make legal or practical sense.

one of his first decisions on trade policy came friday , really , what kept him from making a decision for almost 4 years ?? It seems he is real busy trying to catch up on the work he has been neglecting to do along with being threatened by Mr. Romney , typical leftie , wants to do his job only when he is about to be replaced .

Okay, here we go, Homer. Hold on to your britches.
"Beloved, I pray that you may PROSEPER IN ALL THINGS and be in health, just as your soul prosper."
"The Lord takes pleasure in the prosperity of his servant."
"And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good."
"Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."
"You have not, because you ask not."
We are to give what has been given to us. The promise in return is a prosperous and spiritually fulfilled life.
Let me guess, dumb carol, your minister was "called" not ordained after study, and you think blogs are statistical studies? "Paul warned Timothy about such men in 1 Timothy 6:5, 9-11. These men of “corrupt mind” supposed godliness was a means of gain and their desire for riches was a trap that brought them “into ruin and destruction”(v. 9). The pursuit of wealth is a dangerous path for Christians and one which God warns about:“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs”(v. 10). If riches were a reasonable goal for the godly, Jesus would have pursued it. But He did not, preferring instead to have no place to lay His head (Matthew 8:20) and teaching His disciples to do the same. It should also be remembered that the only disciple concerned with wealth was Judas."

Quite frankly, one of the most direct causes of the Salem Witch Trials and executions was related to jealousy and insecurity and greed over the outward signs of "prosperity."

actually what O'bama did is force all of us (the consumers) to pay more for cars and tires. He doesn't think about the consumer at all.

I've listened to some of the Republican strategists, and their advice is, to bring back business and manufacturing to America. Really? If Republican politicians believe so much in what they are claiming, then why did Bush, who is a Republican, strongly continue to deregulate and outsource our jobs while catering to Wall street? Can't have it both ways, and that's why we ended up a mess that will take years to come to repair, and some of that damage inflicted by Bush and his administration is permanent. Don't fall for the Romney/Ryan instant recovery that they claim they can fix. It won't happen. In fact it will mean continued tax cuts for the rich, in which they are still enjoying from Bush's leadership. According to Ryan, the proposed tax cuts will be for the rich and he stated that himself.

How do you feel about garnering a profit from promoting irresponsible behavior? Bain was instrumental and responsible for the increase of teenage smokers. They did this in Russia too, creating a brand called Vogue, and even threw in a little free bracelet with each pack. Smoking increased considerably because of it; the profits were secreted out of Russia, through Luxembourg and then to the Cayman Islands.
The closing of the Sensata plant in Fremont after forcing its employees to suffer through the indignity of training their Chinese counterparts their jobs, packing up and shipping the plant to China, thereby causing loss of jobs and devastating the town would make anyone angry and rightfully so.
Romney moved the plant to China to benefit from slave labor.
Anything for a buck.
Oh, I almost forgot the last point; then there's Stericyle; what's wrong with making a buck or two grinding up fetuses? I mean, after all he didn't kill them right? You think he baptized them as Mormons first?
That's your Mitt.

1) You have not shown that Romney had anything to do with Bain when this happened.
2) Once the abortion "clinic" kills them, what do you think happens to them?
