What FEMA thing?
What upsets me is the Obama White House hanging Americans out to dry in Benghazi, and causing them to be killed by Al Qaeda.
You remember Al Qaeda, don't you? The people that started the Arab jihad war with the United States by murdering 3000 Americans here in the United States.
Somehow, we ended up with a president that is on their side.
How do you suppose that ironic event happened here?
Breaking News: President Barack Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House on Sept. 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM—just 55 minutes after the State Department notified the White House and the Pentagon that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack.

Not such a great issue for Obama if people read on pages 94-96 of Obama's sequestation proposals. Combined with military cuts which will effect the National Guard, Obama might not to go around trying to use FEMA as an issue. Those pesty facts really get in Obama's way!!!
Sequester was put in place to force Congress to act. Period.

If it were come to that point, it will be the failure (again) for the likes of Paul Ryan.

FEMA was discussed by Mitt Romney who favors letting states handle it & FEMA to be one of those areas we no longer needed.

Now Mitt will deny it or say he meant something else.

But in those debates when Perry ETAL were cancelling all sorts of aspects of the federal government, Romney had to jump in & throw away FEMA.

We're a resilient nation, the NYSE reopened today on generator power while uptown The Wendy Williams Show broadcast with a live audience, one dressed for Halloween.

DaBammy is visiting Atlantic City with Christie__there are no first responders there today although there are no doubt a few thousand insurance adjusters wandering around pretending to know what they're doing. Not so in Seaside and along the barrier island which is a total loss and will never be the same.

There are more dead than I thought there would be but a lot less damage__for instance there will be limited subway service beginning tomorrow__sorry Flack.

WOW__there is a shtload of lying going on here today eh?

Dumb Kvetch All Fraudy (of a thousand aliases) can't even spell GOP--she wasn't too bright before she faked that personal injury claim and received chiropractic for closed head trauma. BTW, Biden's younger than Cheney, and that guy got a brand new Chinee heart from Israel; it must have been a major component of the read Romneycare.

It is not the responsibility of ‘climate realist’ scientists to prove that dangerous human-caused climate change is not happening. Rather, it is those who propose that it is, and promote the allocation of massive investments to solve the supposed ‘problem’, who have the obligation to convincingly demonstrate that recent climate change is not of mostly natural origin and, if we do nothing, catastrophic change will ensue. To date, this they have utterly failed to do so.

Obama Family Tax Shelter -(First family transfers wealth, avoids taxes)
Obama and his wife, Michele, gave a total of $48,000 in tax-free gifts to their daughters, according to tax records made public on Friday.
The president and his wife separately gave each daughter a $12,000 gift under a section of the federal tax code that exempts such donations from federal taxes.
There is nothing illegal about the president’s taking advantage of this tax shelter, but it does raise eyebrows given that he has lamented the myriad tax exemptions used by the wealthy—“millionaires and billionaires” like himself—to pay less in taxes. He has yet to propose a comprehensive plan to reform the byzantine tax code.
An option available to all Americans. Money is taxed: when it was originally earned, and when it is withdrawn by the recipient.

Sure, after Bush told them when Iraq exploded a nuke, it would be their fault.

Bush controlled the information. He ignored the intel that Iraq had no nuclear program.

Where were those nukes? Where was any nuclear program?

requiring a 20% cash down payment would prevent most of the problems regardless of any legislation....
if a bank feels that loans in a given neighborhood are too risky, regardless of the reason, then they should not make the loans....
for example, a prudent bank would not make loans in high-risk flood zones.....
During the housing bubble, many people upgraded by selling their over-valued homes and putting large down payments on mortgages they still couldn't afford - especially after mid 2007 as unemployment climbed. The housing crisis wasn't caused by government mandated loans - and yes, Freddie and Fannie guarantees encouraged bad mortgages, but didn't cause them. Dig deeper.

Difference being...Republicans hold themselves accountable. Many Republicans have stepped down due to fellow Republicans pressuring them for much lesser offenses than this administration telling stories for weeks about a stupid video rather coming out and calling four dead Americans the result of an organized terrorist attack on 9/11.
That's the difference between your side and mine.
In a word - accountability.
Accountability??? LOL Hope you, Cheney, and Bush enjoy all your future time together.

Let's all have a moment of silence to honor those killed in Benghazi. Their families deserve respect and should get a sincere apology from Obama for his failure to act and the falsehoods communicated by his adminstration following the attacks.

I have not shopped at Walmart in many years. They do not provide a living wage to their employees, and do not provide them with the hours necessary to afford them the possibility of insurance.
I make it a point to shop local
So you pay more for the same product because you don't like WalMart? I hope you don't run a business. What is a living wage? It is not the responsibility of a business to give employees anything but the pay they agreed to work for.
