People like Terry Jones make Americans and Christians look bad. He has put Americans all over the world in danger because of his sicko comments and disrespect for others.
He brings in upon himself so good riddance.
Freedom of speech that is selective is not freedom.

Few intelligent people think Terry Jones speaks for anyone but himself. Obviously, radical Islamists like the Egyptian government are not very intelligent.

obammie's spending making him look good...
"... So what drove "growth" in Q3? Nothing short of the most hollow and worst components of GDP: Government Spending, which soared to 0.67% of the annualized number..."
that happens every year as each government program spends any money they have left because if they spend less than they received not only do they not get an annual increase but they are cut to the amount they spent. Can't have that! September is always a very busy place around here.

Obamacare helps the uninsurable by giving them

$1000 a month insurance premiums!

Lets look at how cheap it will be (Kaiser):
"...A family of four earning $75,000 will pay $7,125 in annual premiums and as much as $8,333 in co-pays and deductibles, according to a preliminary estimate by the Kaiser Family Foundation. A single 40-year-old earning $30,000 will pay $2,509 in premiums and as much as $3,125 in cost sharing. For a 60- year-old making $40,000, the amount will be $3,800 in premiums and up to $4,167 in out-of-pocket costs..."

Are Right Wing Conservatives Hypocrites By Nature?

Man is moral but society is not, the liberal theologian Reinhold Niebuhr reminds us. Telling the truth and being true to our stated principles may be sovereign in our personal lives but can easily give way to the demands of our political commitments, as right wing conservatives know all too well.

Hypocrisy matters to liberals because the principles of equality and fair-dealing upon which our liberal way of life depends matter to liberals -- and when those principles are impartially applied bridge our differences to create a society greater than the sum of its parts.

Right wing conservatives do not share this vision of the Great Society and so are untroubled by hypocrisy because their first and only commitment is to their group.

bo is worried about his legacy! He wants to be remembered as the great socialist that equalized and freed America from its capitalistic bonds. If he cares about people then lets talk what he's done about unemployment. Lets talk about what he's done for the vicitms of Hurricane Sandy. He wants to go over the fiscal cliff so he can blame everything on the right again. The GOP needs to do absolutely nothing. Let bo own something for once, even though the media wont report it that way!

The next election will be a ripe moment for a third party candidate; the republican party is weakened. He can run as an Independent and probably get elected.
I don't think Michelle Obama has political aspirations; and I'd like Hillary to run but think she's not going to. We shall see, she will be 70 then, maybe too old.
I like Elizabeth Warren, the new Senator in Mass.
Conservatives would welcome a three-way race between Hillary/Michelle, Christie, and a strong non-religious fiscal Conservative. We get 40-45% of the vote and you can fight over the balance. The election would probably end up in the House.

It's being reported that Syrian rebels are receiving shoulder fired surface to air missiles from Qatar and that at least one Syrian military helicopter and one fighter jet have been shot down this week.

When Assad falls, and he will, these SAM's can easily end up in the hands of terrorists and used to bring down commercial aircraft.

Weird is that Qatar is a US ally which hosted US military support bases during the war against Iraq.

A dictator of what, a destroyed country?

Our way of live is slowly being killed by the growing gap between the wealthy & the poorer as we travel the road of a shrinking middle class.

That is not America. That's a third world country. That s what the Republicans want with their policies that consistently favor the wealthy while expecting the rest to pay for it.

Gotta protect those tax cuts for the wealthy while paying for it through reductions to the entitlements.
