Nov. 4: Israel killed a mentally ill Palestinian walking near the Israeli-imposed “no-go zone” inside the Gaza Strip -- an event that triggered a rocket from Gaza into southern Israel, which did not cause any deaths or injuries.

· Nov. 8: Four Israeli military tanks and a bulldozer entered Gaza, fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy who had been playing soccer by his family’s house.

· Nov. 10: In retaliation, two rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel, and an anti-tank missile injured four soldiers, when it hit an Israeli army jeep that had crossed over into the territory. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights reported the killing of five more Palestinians, four of whom were civilians – including two soccer players age 16 and 17 and two young men (18 and 19) who ran to the scene. Forty-nine others were wounded, including 10 children.

· Nov. 11: Amid talks of a truce, six more Palestinians (all but one were civilians) were wounded and another was killed by both air strikes and troops on the ground.

Did the quote you received include installation? Some friends of ours purchased one for about $750, and installed it themselves. Not sure from which company. I'll ask if you like.
No, that was for a kit you build yourself.

And this....

Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 1461 - Federal Housing Finance Reform Act of 2005

"The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers."

There are many other countries in which these rights are not recognized. If the rest of your countrymen having them bothers you, find another country. America will not divest itself of our rights, to make you feel better.

And remember that when you decide to forgo purchasing catastrophic care insurance, and are diagnosed with cancer - don't expect or force me to pay for your medical care either,'k?
Imagine a person being so obsessed about whether a woman takes contraceptives or not?
That argument "as long as I don't pay for it" doesn't hold any water, yet they keep repeating it like parrots.
Everyone pays for everything in insurance; everyone pays for everything with taxes. No one gets to pick and choose.

Nope, you are a liar.
So, you either you don't have sex, had a vasectomy, or believe that the sole responsibility on contraception lies with the woman.
"liar" and "stupid" are two different things.

John Feehery, a veteran Republican strategist, has a blunt message for his party: It’s time to stand up to “the Rush Limbaughs of the world.”

Taking aim at conservative talk show hosts, Feehery tells me in a video interview,“we cannot be cowed by them. When they say things that are culturally insensitive and stupid, we need to go after them.”

Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, among others, have a strong following on the right. But Feehery, a former House GOP official, says there is too much “inflammatory” rhetoric:“We can have honest, open discussions about the future of the country without unnecessarily jabbing our fingers in the eyes of Hispanic voters, African-American voters, Asian voters.”

What do voters think, Feehery asks,“when they hear right-wing luminaries say things that are completely outrageous and offensive, and you don’t stand up?” He also says some conservatives should knock off the “racial undertones” in criticizing President Obama.

Feehery believed Mitt Romney was going to win, but now says “he made so many mistakes during the campaign that were self-inflicted errors,” including the infamous 47 percent comment.

“We had a flawed candidate; we have a flawed party,” says Feehery.

No female will ever get testicular cancer so why should they pay for it? Do you refuse to fund ovarian cancer?
I'm glad my premiums cover cancer. Cancer is a disease, not an "inconvenience" like getting pregnant. I don't think my premiums should cover a procedure just because she made a stupid decision then doesn't want the hassle of raising a kid. How a bout this, let her take the guy who knocked her up to court and make him pay for her abortion the way fathers are required to make child-support payments. If he still wants to keep boinking her, let him pay for her damn birth control too.

I see what you mean, Israel is showing a GREAT deal of restraint!

They COULD stomp around there like Goddamn-zilla, wipe hamas and hizbola OUT, but they have not!

I find that amazing, since hizbola and hamas would kill every Israeli in a heartbeat if they had the chance!

Last June, I issued a challenge to everyone involved in the housing industry to help increase the number of minority families to be home owners. And what I'm talking about, I'm talking about your bankers and your brokers and developers, as well as members of faith-based community and community programs. And the response to the home owners challenge has been very strong and very gratifying. Twenty-two public and private partners have signed up to help meet our national goal. Partners in the mortgage finance industry are encouraging homeownership by purchasing more loans made by banks to African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities.

In RealDumb's world, anybody that doesn't want to pay the way for people on welfare or who don't completely support Obama are racists. Anybody who doesn't want to pay for "abortion on demand" hates women. Anybody who finds anal sex between two men distasteful is a homophobe.

Be like digging for worms in the manure pile--finding all the terrorist parasite types hidden within the masses.

But maybe the SANE and rational will stand stronger that have to live with the daily violence, will start to take offence at the terrorist and hater types and say "enough", and start turning over the anarchist and war mongers among them, for civil actions of recourse!!

PEACEFUL DEMOCRACY FOR Israel and it's people-NOT against it!!

Now that "taxes" AND "insurance" have been combined into obammacare the debate is OVER!!!

We ALL pay, and we ALL get, whatever it is that we MIGHT need!

None of that pesky, bothersome, picking and choosing.

Actuary tables will do the picking and choosing FOR (to) us!

Is that how it works?
