Everybody thinks that we're israels father or something. They are their own sovereign nation. We don't call israel to send support when we have homeland problems. Same thing with iran, they want us to do what they are'nt willing to do. If they're having homeland problems, they have to do what they deem necessary to protect their country. At the end of the day it's not america being bombed. We are allies, so if they commit to full sledge war we will support israel & if israel sets it off on iran in attempts at ending their nuclear weapons program, america will lend support, but if either 1 thinks we're going to fight their wars for them, they got another thing coming. I commend Obama for allowing those nations to govern themselves. We can't father every nation on the planet & surely not on the bases of the bible said so!

It was crazy, folks waiting in line 2 hours at the factory store here. They'll be back, IMO.
I worked in a bakery once for 2 days, 8 hours of putting hot dog bun trays on a conveyor belt, 120 degrees, when they tried to hire me permanently I said I'll pass.
Loved the smell tho.
Two years here-any bun/bread/roll/pie you could think of. Proofed em-hauled 'em to the commercial oven (about 8 large rotating shelves worth) baked 'em....cooled 'em...wrapped them, priced them and stocked the shelves. All while waiting on customers at the same time.
The ONE and only "mandatory yewniun dues" job I ever had the DISpleasure of having to work at. The LEAST favored job ever-- of the many I've done over years.:-)

We can allow them, since Israel has every right to inspect the factories, the Iranians have no right at all to refuse. If the Iranians want peace, they should have their factories inspected.
Now hear this: We are not in any position to "allow" or "disallow" Israel's factory inspections policy. WE are not in charge of Israel. Israel is.

Top Republicans Excoriate Romney On Sunday Talk Shows

If Mitt Romney has any friends left in the Republican Party, they’re in hiding.

On the Sunday talk shows, senior Republicans, former Romney surrogates and prominent conservatives piled on their defeated presidential nominee for telling donors that he lost because President Obama bought off minorities and young voters with “gifts.”

“It’s nuts,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on ABC’s “This Week.”“I mean, first of all, it’s insulting.… The job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can’t offer a better future that is believable to more people, we’re not going to win.”

Rumored 2016 presidential hopefuls in the party saw an opportunity to distance themselves from Romney.

“I absolutely reject what he said,” said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on “Fox News Sunday.”“We as a Republican Party have to campaign for every single vote. If we want people us we have to like them first. And you don’t start to like people by saying their votes were bought.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), an on-again, off-again advocate for comprehensive immigration reform, said Romney’s comments were especially damaging among Hispanics. He said Romney fueled the fire of their disenchantment with the GOP that grew when the ex-governor pushed a policy of “self-deportation” for illegal immigrants and their children.

“We’re in a big hole, we’re not getting out of it by comments like that. When you’re in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”“We’re in a death spiral with Hispanic voters because of our rhetoric on immigration, and our candidate Romney and the primaries dug the hole deeper.”

Carlos Gutierrez, a top Hispanic surrogate and adviser to the Romney campaign, said he was “shocked” by the comments.“I don’t know if he understood that he was saying something that was insulting,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Romney was never beloved by the GOP establishment. But the Sunday show pile-on indicates that any good will he had among the party faithful is rapidly vanishing, and that he’s well on his way to pariah status with the party that so recently anointed him to lead them and the country.

“It’s been well said that you have a political problem when the voters don’t like you, but you’ve got a real problem when the voters think you don’t like them,” said conservative columnist George Will on ABC’s “This Week.”“Quit despising the American people.”

FOX/Rush will need to go out of business.

Do you ever think before you post the idiocy you post so often?
I never said it was alright, doofus. I merely stated the history of the US stealing land.

What Romney Didn't Say
Peggy Noonan: Have we noticed a certain lack of modesty in our political figures? Thank goodness... for Mitt Romney, who in a conference call with donors said he got beat and beat bad, that his campaign was lacking, that his gut on the big issues was probably off, that he shouldn't have allowed his campaign to become (in the grandiose, faux-macho lingo of campaign...) an air war and not a ground war, and that they were smoked in get-out-the-vote. He added, with an eye to concerns larger than his own, that he wanted to help the party analyze and define what didn't work in 2012 so it would be stronger in 2016.
Sorry. Kidding! He didn't say that. He said the administration gave "gifts" to interest groups, and the groups appreciated the gifts, and, people being the little automatons they are, said yes, sire, and voted for him.
In a way it was as bad as the old "47%" tape.
What he DID say, over and over and over during his campaign, was that he planned to give lots of 'gifts' to those who share his tax bracket - such as a 20% tax cut, allowing (and possibly increasing) loopholes and deductions only they ever use, and packing the Supreme Court with corporatists.

Funny how no Republican Super Pac donor is happy with their purchased candidate...

The Astonishing Cravenness of the RSC

On Friday this blog broke the news of a paper being circulated by the Republican Study Committee, the House’s conservative caucus. Authored by staffer Derek Khanna, it laid out the case for copyright reform in stark terms that seemed to mark an honest effort on the part of the party to at least consider the failings of the current system.

Within a day the paper was pulled from the Internet by the RSC and an apology was issued, claiming it was “published without adequate review.” But the notion that the paper just showed up on the website of the Republican Study Committee without approval is absurd. Far more likely, as Mike Masnick points out, is that the RIAA and MPAA had a morning full of very stern phone calls to staffers and legislators, and the RSC folded.

Keep in mind that this is just a working document that didn’t indicate any kind of formal change in policy from the GOP. Taking it down is tantamount to saying these ideas don’t even deserve discussion.

Mr. Khanna has probably been instructed by his superiors to keep quiet about the incident. But he responded on a Reddit thread about the paper prior to it being taken down, providing some vital context:

I wrote this memo intending to start a much broader conversation, so I am the first to admit that it is a work in progress. It will take work to come to a sensible copyright system in this country, and I hope that putting this idea on the board will start a much longer conversation by recognizing that copyright is a goldilocks-like balance. And in answer to one persons post, patent reform is also absolutely vital — real patent reform.

No one requested it. I just thought it was a good idea. I freely acknowledge that the “solutions” are imperfect. In fact they weren’t in an earlier version at all, but I thought it better to put some tangible ideas on the board as to what I actually meant. It’s one thing to talk about problems and another to start to identify solutions. And then even another battle to get it into legislative text.

The RSC’s attempt to shut this all down appears to have failed; copies of the paper are now widely available. In several comment sections in stories about it, commenters wrote that such a policy shift would be reason enough to vote for the GOP, and that if the paper had signaled a change in policy the party would be on the right track to deserve to govern again. Even if that’s an exaggeration, this is an issue that young voters find increasingly important, and the RSC’s unwillingness to even entertain discussion won’t look good to them.

On a broader level, a GOP that’s serious about Tim Carney-esque free-market populism would have to address IP reform, which nearly always works to the benefit of entrenched market interests to the detriment of new entrants. Jerry Brito has even gone so far as to make the comparison between copyright and Solyndra.

I couldn't possibly care less what shenanigans Israelis and Palestinians get up to over there, unless one of them decided to fire a nuclear weapon at us - in that case, we'd be perfectly justified in settling the 'Israel/Palestine' question definitively, and in kind. Otherwise, we should stay the hell up out of it.
Amen and amen, sister!!

It's the evangelicals like Carol looking to the Revelations for the end times, which their silly book says will happen in Israel.

Evangelicals have a death wish. That's fine, but they're not taking the rest of us with them.

They will be killed off quickly, once their true agenda is realized by most Americans.
