Fiend watched his victim die: Homeless man arrested in Times Square subway murder:
A homeless drifter last night confessed to tossing a Queens father onto a Times Square subway track, where he was fatally crushed by a Q train, law-enforcement sources told The Post.
Naeem Davis, 30 was being grilled in the grisly death of Ki Suk Han, 58, who was struck in front of horrified onlookers Monday after trying desperately to scramble back to the platform.
Davis told police that he “stayed and watched” as the train hit Han, a law-enforcement source said.
“He said he heard his torso snap and he knew he was dead.”
Davis showed no remorse for causing Han’s death, another source said.

Homeless man shoeless again despite cop's gift of boots - wants 'piece of the pie'
Officer Larry DePrimo gives Jeffrey Hillman boots and socks.
The New York City homeless man — whose gift of boots from an NYPD police officer became an online sensation — is back on the streets with no shoes.
The man, Jeffrey Hillman, formerly of South Plainfield, NJ was found Sunday night wandering barefoot in Manhattan, The New York Times reported.
Asked about the $100 all-weather boots Officer Larry DePrimo gave him on Nov. 14, Hillman says he's hidden them because "they are worth a lot of money."
He says he's grateful for the gift, but he wants "a piece of the pie" because the photo was posted online "without permission."
An Arizona tourist snapped the photo of the officer presenting new boots to Hillman. It went viral after it was posted on the NYPD's Facebook page.

Hillary in 2016? Popular Idea
Carried by a new high in personal popularity and broad approval of her work as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton closes out her diplomatic career with majority support as a candidate for president in 2016.
Fifty-seven percent in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they'd back a run by Clinton to succeed Barack Obama, vs. 37 percent opposed. That includes a broad gender gap - 66 percent support for Clinton among women, dropping to 49 percent among men.

BRUSSELS -- Serbia's ambassador to NATO was chatting and joking with colleagues in a multistory parking garage at Brussels Airport when he suddenly strolled to a barrier, climbed over and flung himself to the ground below, a diplomat said.

By the time his shocked colleagues reached him, Branislav Milinkovic was dead.

The Constitution is a governing document
Unlike the Republican Party which seems split between nobama and carol. Libertarian vs Right to Life.

Thankfully the failure of Romney and the GOP to come up with anything but cutting taxes leaves Republicans in the lurch. Nature abhors a vacuum and the party's neglect of jobs and inflation gives voters the chance to fill that vacuum with their feelings about the last Republican president.
This isn't good news for Republicans because a large majority (53 percent to 38 percent) of the electorate blames George W. Bush not Barack Obama for the condition of today's economy.

Unless and until we have true campaign finance reform and our elected officials must spend most of their time begging for money from corporations; the tax code will not be reformed.
Let the disaster happen.
Merry Christmas to you too!
Thanks. I think it's going to happen. I think no matter what we are going to get downgraded again which should mean interest rates should go up. That is the invisible elephant in the room. Should interest rates on the debt start rising we are screwed. That is the only glue holding the house of cards together. Low interest rates. But they won't stay down forever.

The majority of Americans did want Obama's version of health care reform passed. It was passed anyway proving he wasn't "here to do the will of the people".
The majority of Americans believe we are on the wrong track. Obama is taking us down the same one proving he isn't "here to do the will of the people".
The majority of Americans were against the nearly trillion dollar stimulus and nothing to show for it. Obama spent it anyway proving he wasn't "here for the will of the people".
So I have no idea what you're talking about.
By the way, he's a Black Liberation Theologist with Muslim sympathies.
You said nothing that makes any sense! Ask have were opinions (your own)! He was re elected proven the majority of people see things the way he does, so I don't know what your talking about! In the real world your opinion means nothing except to those who have to deal with the consequences. NOW THAT A FACT!!!

When Fox News chief Roger Ailes sent one of his national security correspondents to interview then-General David Petraeus in 2011, chances are he didn’t want the full conversation to ever see the light of day — because if it did, the network’s claim of being “fair and balanced” could be forever buried.

As it happened, someone was recording. The Washington Post revealed Monday that Ailes had contributor K.T. Mcfarland deliver a message to Petraeus directly: run for president as a Republican and News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch will bankroll you
