<quoted text>War is good. War keeps our economy strong. The Great Depression ended because of war. The highest employment rates occur during war while at the same time uniting the nation. You think war is a bad thing but in reality, this nation wouldn't exist without war.
It wouldn't exist without air, water, and arable land, either.

But it was doing damn fine before 'Americans' got here, and it would continue to do just fine if we all disappeared in a puff of smoke.

What's your point?

The TEA PARTY!

HERE as always-to STAY.
Fourteen hundred-fifty-five days and counting!
Good News!! Corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder, the one who, along with Obama, is responsible for the death of Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens and who also refused to prosecute Obama's Black Panthers, may be resigning before his past catches up with him.
Bad News. Obama might replace him with corrupt Mass. Governor Deval Patrick, who has more skeletons in his closet than his other choice, Janet Napolitano. America will continue to get beat down under this lame excuse for a president.

From all indications, Boehner is not going to stand in Obama's way. I hope he doesn't. Whatever happens will be your party's baby. If we're going over the cliff, Republicans should get out of the way to be blameless.
It might be what has to happen for America to finally wake up once and for all. We'll pick up the pieces in 2016 when the democrat party is no more if we survive.
Boehner has no choice in the matter. His coalition of Tea Turds will obstruct and refuse to cooperate, just like the last fiscal cliff caused by the routine process of raising the debt limit. Crybaby has no control over the Tea Turds. The GOP will be blamed by America for wreaking havoc on our economy by failing to compromise. While they don't tell you this over at FOX, a majority of Americans, including some Republicans believe that adding 3% in additional taxes on incomes over $250,000 is a responsible way to begin paying down our debt, combined with budget cuts.
Furthermore, your Party fails to see the election for what it was, and continues to call hardworking Americans 'takers'. How'd THAT work out for you?

Kinda thinking Congress needs to start capping and curbing the pie in the sky Air force One usage, after watching this guy taking advantage of the POTUS a'la'mode buffet ticket to ride.
Seriously, please submit via written grant proposal request, reasons and justifications for AirForce One ne usage to Congress, for acceptance/decline processing. Also cc a copy to the EPA, for regulatory review of fuel per miles limit, consumption acceptability levels, and domestic commodities allocations compliances.
All requests for usage considerations, shall be submitted 60 days prior of intended pie in the sky time, and should be in legible comprehensive format, all caps, numerous punctuation errors and flighty, all-over-the-page UNcohesive, inconcise, vague and/or broad rambling statements, will be instant consideration for point deduction, in processing usage request.

Hey stupid! The President travels on Air Force One so that he can be in constant touch with what's happening.
George W Bush made 77 trips to his faux ranch in Crawford which cost taxpayers $226,072 per trip.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—House Speaker John Boehner today called for an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich, thus ending a streak of pretending to work with President Obama that lasted forty-eight hours.

“We knew he couldn’t hold out much longer,” said Carol Foyler of Guinness World Records.


“Still, John Boehner pretending to be bipartisan for forty-eight hours is pretty darn impressive,” she said, noting that his previous record stood at twenty minutes.“This is David Blaine territory for him.”

Speaking to reporters, Mr. Boehner downplayed the significance of his record-setting performance, saying merely,“It just feels good being a dick again.”

Carol, you're still harping about Obamacare and still unable to admit that it was built on a template laid out by the Heritage Society, Richard Nixon and Bob Dole and enacted into law in Massachusetts by Mitt Romney. It was actually a boon for private insurance by providing them with millions of new customers.
In return they have to take all comers, can't cut off coverage when someone gets sick or cap coverage cutting off treatment in mid course. They have to spend 80% of what they take in on medical coverage, not on executive compensation and overhead. It will allow my son a junior in college and who turns 21 in March to continue on our policy until he graduates and is able to get coverage on his own. It will save millions of senior citizens money on prescription drugs by shrinking and eventually eliminating the Medicare part D donut hole.
Liberals didn't get what they wanted; the public option, which was supported by 57% of the American people but wasn't able to get through due to opposition from Republicans and some Democrats like the soon to be departing Joe Lieberman.
The cost of Obamacare is a pittance compared to the $11.6 million lost to the treasury every HOUR from the Bush tax cuts for the very wealthy which the GOP is fighting tooth and nail to extend.
The bigger cost will be put on employers who will be required to offer insurance plans if they have 51 employees or more. Field said most large companies already provide coverage, but the change will be bigger for medium-sized companies.

There is some concern that the fees employers have to pay may be transferred either to the employee or the customer through more expensive services and goods. Whether the ACA will cut into salaries is unknown right now.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57546684/...

Everytime the government adds more fees and taxes, that's usually what happens. It gets passed on to the customer and, in this case, the employee.
