<quoted text>Military officials told Woods senior??? Unnamed military officials no doubt.
Listen up chump__Ty Woods was not active military, nor was Doherty or any of the others stationed at the, cough, annex. While Smith was officially employed by the State Dept. Woods, Doherty and the others weren't and at this time it's not known for sure exactly where their significant checks were coming from.
The US Military had no authority to respond to the Benghazi attack with force without the permission of the Libyan government.
PERMISSION OF THE LYBIAN GOVERNMENT? We didn't get Pakistan's permission to go in and kill Bin Ladin! We sure as hell don't need Lybia's permission to protect an American ambassador. Don't know WHERE you got that crazy idea (unless you are brainwashed by liberal beliefs that American should bow and snivel to other countries like our bowing and sniveling president has done, to his shame, in the past).

The Obama administration now agrees with… JFK September, 18, 1963 speech about” Tax Cuts!!”
A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education and investment. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues.”
Too little, to late. The American people (most of them I hope) are too smart to fall for this.

OBL was an exception to the rule__the drone strikes on Pakistan and Yemen have a blanket permission arrangement more than likely tied to some handsome aid packages.
If you choose to believe the crap these conspiracy freaks are selling, fine by me.

Boy, it's hard enough waiting for the election in 10 days and now we have to wait to see what this storm is going to do on Monday and Tuesday.

Too much intense waiting. It's why I can't stand movies that are too intense. Unless the sound is off. Then it doesn't bother me. TMI...

Just hope everyone stays safe in its path.

You can't blame him for the circumstances he inherited, but you can blame him for spending us into more and more debt. You can blame him for spending more time campaigning and golfing than leading. You can blame him for lying to the American people and hiding the truth about the circumstances in Benghazi.

And yeah, he's proven things to us in Florida...just not what YOU think.

<quoted text> Blasphemy!!! We all know tax cuts do no such thing. Haven't you heard having the government take the money from some people to give to other people is the only sure fire way to grow gover, err the economy!!! LMAO!!!
Tax cuts do work to fight a recession. They don't work when they last too long & are unfunded.

If you weren't such an ass you would know that handing money to the wealthy is not as likely to be spent as handing money to the middle class.

Tax cuts don't always work like you see to think.

Lets use your theory & put iut to the test.

If we ct taxes by say 5%, you say we would gain more revenue.

So, lets cut taxes by 5% every year & after a few years, no one would be paying any taxes & the country would be rolling in cash.

Agreed. Must be difficult for those on the coast not knowing whether to plan for rain, snow or both. Have family in Connecticut; prepared for most everything, but their biggest concern is that they will lose internet access. My how our priorities have changed over the years!

GM got about 50 billion.

What happened to the other 15 million? Did they pay that back & if they did, that would make to a liar, one again.

You're a mutt gunner and your little crew are the muttettes.

You'll never get to the truth on Benghazi because it was C-I-A-ALL-THE-WAY. They don't call them Spooks for nothing do they?

Which reminds me of Spooky, the US Air Force AC 130 gunship some yayhoo was yakkin about all night? Was that you?

No advanced guidance systems on a Spectre__that fkr works just like "Puff" from my beloved Vietnam tours. No painting targets with lasers__sorry.

Should mention that the AC 130 Stinger an in progress configuration armed with hellfire's and other cool stuff will have that capability.

Whatever___the US Air Force just can't go around blowing the sht out of entire neighborhoods full of civilians.

Absolutely right. right! The country or better yet the people would have a lot more money. One last time. 20% sales tax. Nothing else. No other taxes. NONE!$0.12 to local government.$0.05 to state government.$0.03 to the federal government. If you can't pay for the government with the money you have cut the government till you can. And no borrowing, absolutely none, except in times of major war. Like in the order of WWII>

Ok Poindexter just explain to me, and everyone else, just what do the 'rich' do with that money? Hurry up I got to leave soon and starting the night off with a good laugh is a good thing. So besides the vault in the basement what do the rich do with the money?
