Great place to pick up chicks. I don't ski(bad ankles) but use to go there a lot. Dad has about 18" and lost power but he has a whole house generator so I'm sure he will have a house full.

If only every right wing 'story' about Jarrett was true then I guess I wouldn't be such a sarcastic SOB.
Don't even ask me to discard that which is not true for what is. Goes to overall credibility don't you think?
Sad thing is, most of us have no firsthand, personal knowledge about things such as this, and we must choose what article or talking head we believe, based on our internal filters, our gut reactions, our logic, and comparison with the other side's probably biased point of view.

I tend to feel the MSM IS very protective of Obama and therefore, I am mistrustful of their motives. Many only see a racist point of view, and therefore, MSNBC rings true to them.

I'll be glad when this election is over and hope this country can get back to doing what's best for America rather than what's politically expedient.

The IRS has no subpoena power in Switzerland or the Cayman Islands__Mitt is playing the game of "trust me folks."

His main problem year is 2009 a year of amnesty for American corporations and individuals who had been hiding money abroad as away of "evading taxes due." He has other problems as well.

Mitt Romney has a long history of guarding his financial information not to mention lying. He's deceitful, dishonest and nowhere near the best candidate the Republicans had to offer. Ron Paul called him liar on national TV and then laughed at him. Perry, Gingrich, and Cain despised Romney and his wife for their standoffish holier than thou behavior prior to and after the (R) debates and the RNC.

Ah. The man doesn't say what you want to hear so you dismiss him out of hand.
Big surprise. You're just as biased as any other right wing 'winner' on this thread.
Goes to credibility don't you think?
Oh wait...out of hand would mean I didn't listen to his argument. I hear him like I hear the others. He just seems to be on the wrong side of right to me many times. Seems like a nice guy though.

It is difficult to focus on the tasks at hand, as your mind drifts to the deeper questions of life and love. Discussions with friends unravel a new perspective, whilst heightened interest in the occult also reveals a fascinating alternative. Hidden signs and messages have future meaning. Allow them time to evolve.

...Hopefully, discussions with friends unravelling a new perspective will finally pay off on here...but stay away from those occults, okay?

All I've seen so far are accusations that she was involved in something purposely nefarious (sans citation).
But that would just be a guess wouldn't it? Which to an anti-brither such as myself, is humorous.
Anything to get elected,

During last week's presidential debate, realizing that he was taking a beating on the Medicare solvency issue, Barack Obama issued the following cri de coeur: "AARP thinks that the savings that we obtained from Medicare bolster the system, lengthen the Medicare trust fund by eight years." Later, after enduring several more blows to his credibility, the President went on to claim AARP agreed with him that Romney's plan would weaken Medicare. Oddly, the "senior advocacy organization" took offense at these remarks. Having provided full-throated support to the President and the Democrats on Obamacare, and resisted Medicare reform, AARP has begun to revert to its nonpartisan pose now that Obama appears to be in trouble.

On Thursday, AARP issued this statement: "AARP has never consented to the use of its name by any candidate or political campaign. AARP is a nonpartisan organization and we do not endorse political candidates nor coordinate with any candidate or political party." The hypocrisy of this statement is breathtaking. AARP actively supported Obama and congressional Democrats on Obamacare knowing full well that it would cut Medicare Advantage (MA), an enormously popular program among seniors, by $200 billion. This obvious betrayal of its members was driven by the knowledge that these MA cuts would force millions of seniors back to traditional Medicare and create a captive market for AARP's "Medigap" policies.

Burglary vs Homicide
Libya/Benghazi is making Watergate look like a low classified misdemeanor.
The fact they watched this atrocity unfold while sitting on their hands is unbelievable.
Then again, this administration has ordered the assassination of American citizens with complete disregard for due process, so...
It is absolutely mind boggling to me that you Republicans don't recognize the phony hypocrisy of your indignation over Obama's role in Benghazi while defending Bush's role in Iraq. Here we are years later still digging out from the devastation of a war based on faulty intelligence from a Republican president's staff that cost THOUSANDS of American lives and billions of dollars. This bogus intelligence was mulled over by Bush's people for WEEKS and they still phucked up! But you hypocrites rail against Obama's team for not making an INSTANT decision based on cloudy intelligence that could have put even more American lives at risk.

Gov. Christie: Obama Deserves ‘Great Credit’ For Storm Response
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that President Obama deserves "great credit" for his response to Hurricane Sandy, during an appearance on "CBS This Morning" Tuesday. He said he had spoken to the president three times, including when Obama called him at midnight.
"I can't thank the president enough for that," Christie said, referring to the major disaster declaration Obama signed for New Jersey, expediting federal aid to the state. "Cooperation from the president of the United States has been outstanding. He deserves great credit."
See, this country needs MORE leadership like Christie (and LESS bootlicking, lemming herd pack, brainless, partisan roboTics!

What does investing in drug smuggling have to do with drinking beer?
Do you think drug dealers take drugs? It's a business, and one of the biggest ones Peppy. Pres. Bush gave the Taliban $400 million to eradicate the poppy fields. HA! It was seed money! Heroin production has increased something like 200%; drug sales buy the arms; the next biggest business.
It's got nothing to do with drug culture and if you don't realize the magnitude of money that comes from these ventures, then perhaps you should do some reading about it.
You weren't talking about Bush. You were talking about Romney. So back up what you said without trying to confuse the issue.

Pat Caddell, former Democratic strategist and pollster who worked for Jimmy Carter, excoriated the so-called "mainstream media" for their coverage of the Benghazi attack and what appears to be a cover up by the Obama administration.

"I am appalled right now."

"This White House, this president, this vice president, the secretary of state, all of them are willing apparently to dishonor themselves and this country for the cheap prospect of getting reelected, willing to cover up and lie, and the worst thing is, the very people who are supposed to protect the American people and the truth, the leading mainstream media... they have become a threat, a fundamental threat to American democracy and the enemies of the American people."

Caddell wasn't finished, and said that if any other president had responded the way Obama did, he would have been "crucified" by the media.

<quoted text>Your Repubs voting to take money away from Embassy security. You all are nothing but a bunch of Repub Hypocrites.
House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012....Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected.
Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.
Did you watch any of the congressional investigational hearings on this? Ms. Lamb, who made the decisions, said it had nothing to do with finances nor lack of money. Her decisions were made for other reasons, and apparently only she and God understand them.

Oh? Bet you didn't watch those hearings, right?
