follow up to above post...
The lame attempt by Obama to hide behind the claim that,“there was no actionable intelligence,” is being systematically and thoroughly destroyed. The intelligence was plentiful and clear. The requests from the Regional Security Officer were unambiguous. The recommendations of Senior Military leaders on the ground left no room for doubt. The State Department and the White House, to quote Ricky Riccardo, will have a lot of splaining to do. And none of their explanations are defensible. Whatever legacy Hillary hoped to have at State is now in flames and turning to putrid ashes. She has the blood of four Americans on her hands. And as she goes down she is taking Mr.“I KILLED BIN LADEN” with her!!!
And now let me present the UN Ambassador AKA The
Untouchable Puppet..(Black Female Liberal) The
one and only professional Liar Susan Rice!!!!
washingtonpost.com
Or maybe Rice,was chosen for her indepth knowledge
of the workings of the CIA,FBI,DOD,NSA,DHS,after all
her job as UN Ambassador must have fully equipped her
to espouse to the planet,,What happened in Benghazi-
Gate??? LOL..What an insult to the American Public!
Still no word on why the ambassador was at the Benghazi consulate without his security staff?

But "adults" will want their children to watch TV, but they can't, so is that why they have to dump it outside then is it? A better alternative would be to make it appropriate in the first place than to dump it out, you moron.

You said canned smaltz. As if you didn't like whats on TV. You might as well get rid of yourself. If an adult finds TV canned smalz, then they too would obviously want to rid it, you lying hypocrite.

<quoted text> 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!
I never said they had to go to war with them. I simply said that america, just like all other nations of the UN, with the ability and responsibility, they should allow Israel to inspect Irans factories.

Are you on that plane yet, wanks?
No young turd, we as the UN according to the law to enforce Iran has the factories inspected. The Irans should only allow peace if they were to have their factories inspected. Types like you see no responsibility to do whats right when you have the ability to do the right thing, you young runner rat.

Funny how no Republican Super Pac donor is happy with their purchased candidate...
Gifts? Excuses for fraud he is giving to young people to get them to vote for him?

Heads or Tails, the Obama Coalition Wins

....Here’s the situation, as Lindsey and others (like David Brooks) see it: because of immigration, automation, outsourcing, and attrition, the share of working-class whites in America is gradually diminishing. On the rise are those who are better at impulse control, long-term planning, and, yes, contraception. With helicopter parents and graduate degrees, they are far better-suited to meet the cognitive demands of an increasingly complex knowledge economy. They are waiting longer and longer to get married, if at all, and they’re having fewer children. Economically speaking, they are makers, not takers; winners, not losers. And right now, they are attached to the Democratic party.

Ross focuses on the attraction to single mothers of government transfer payments. Yet as Joel Kotkin notes, the broader picture indicates a growing number of childless single women and men, plus childless couples:

Demographically, at least in the short and even medium term, betting on singles and the childless couples seems like a no-brainer. In the past 30 years the percentage of women aged 40 to 44 who have never had children nearly doubled to 19%. At the same time singletons of both sexes are on the rise, numbering over 31 million strong today, up from 27 million in 2000, a growth rate nearly double that of the overall population.

There is simply no way to look at these trends and find good news for a political party that appeals mostly to traditionalist whites and the very rich. The promise of equality for the materially insecure and social space for the materially secure — this is the Democratic cocktail, and, for now, at least, it looks like it will win the foreseeable future. There is economic fear here, to be sure. But there’s also economic superiority.
