AMERICA HAS REPEATEDLY COMMITTED MONEY AND FORCE TO SUPPORTING RIGHT WING DICTATORS, CAUSES, MOVEMENTS. OUR MILITARY AND THE MILITARY INDUSTRIALS ARE DECIDEDLY RIGHT WING. RIGHT WING IS A NICE WAY OF SAYING FASCIST. SO LET ME SAY IT FOR YOU: AMERICA'S FOREIGN POLICY, AT LEAST AS FAR AS CONFLICTS ARE CONCERNED, IS FASCIST. WE ARE A FASCIST STATE AND OUT MILITARY IS A FASCIST ORGANIZATION WHICH ENDORSES FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANITY AS THE MEANS BY WHICH FASCISM IS INCULCATED IN THE TROOPS.
IT MAY NOT HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY, BUT SOONER RATHER THAN LATER SOME IDIOT FUNDAMENTALIST GENERAL, BOYKIN POSSIBLY OR ONE LIKE HIM, WILL ATTEMPT TO USE THE INDOCTRINATED TROOPS UNDER HIS COMMAND TO TRY AND EXECUTE A COUP AGAINST THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. I MYSELF, AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. IT'S PAST TIME WE CLEANED OUT THE RAT'S NEST THAT IS THE AMERICAN MILITARY.

Staten Island repeatedly destroyed?

Better try again "global warming guru."

Hey, how about those freaks along the Mississippi in Iowa who get flooded out every six years, the ones that already have their new homes designed and furnishings picked out?

Debunked as soon as it hit the stands, by every brain scientist who waded through that slop. All "visions" -- including "dead loved ones" who give you the dope on the afterlife, is just that -- the dying brain (or one that "fears" it is, makes chemicals to usher you into death -- educated folk call them hallucinations. Sometimes they're pleasant, sometimes they're "bad" and "scary." Yours will likely be the latter because you're such a cowardly imbecile. Even as you suffer in your cocoon of fat, with the gaudy work of diabetes beginning to have its way with you, you're still scared sh!tless to be snuffed. Did you know that the brains of prey animals also produce a chemical that sends them into a swoon as they're being torn limb from limb by a group of predators. It's kind of like that, sh!tforbrains. Your masters are feeding you in a manner of speaking; it's just "bloodless" at the moment.
Just because you're a "brain scientist," doesn't mean you're wrapped tight -- you hopeless imbecile. You'll grab on to anything though, because you're a fat coward in the end, in spite of all your breast beating and pious swill.
Okay smart guy, you got it all figured out right? You sound like an evolutionist. With all blabbing one would've thought you knew that evolution is not the cause of something, but the result of what already was. I dont claim any religion, but i've read the bible& from where I stand, it is accurate. If it weren't, why are we (humans) the only beings on the planet that doesn't do scaly what we're supposed to? Every other animal in the world does sadly what their supposed to, we tend to go against the grain. Why is that? Why before any modern religion was humans worshiping gods, even the primitive humans? You have too much faith in science when the philosophy of science changes with the weather. I know a ton of people (family for that matter) that experienced the paranormal & aint none of them crazy, dying, or thought they were dying! Science only explains the effect, not the cause of such events. Any emotion conjures chemicals to create emotional feelings. It's doesn't mean the cause for the chemicals didnt happen. I only received my GED & I know this, yet you talk like a scholar, but ramble on with nonsense theories. During robberies some people have been known to panic so much, they die from cardiac arrest. Why they didnt hallucinate? Weather you like to believe it or not, we live in a world with no boundaries, but a hell of alot of laws & unexplainable things happen to sain people so how can a scientist explain the unexplainable? & stop believing humans come from monkeys stupid. Lol! No man never been on the moon!

If we eliminated every federal department and function not specifically authorized by the Constitution, we would have a huge surplus at current taxation rates.
It isn't even necessary to make such massive eliminations. We had a surplus during Clinton's term. Just to put in perspective what you are suggesting, here is a short list of government items that are "not specifically authorized by the Constitution":

The United States Marine Corps

The United States Air Force

The FBI

The CIA

All Cabinet Departments (Departments of State, Defense, Treasury, etc.)

Well, you get the idea.

There is a difference between providing information to the government, even if it can be obtained by specific request, versus having that information published in mass media.

400 is a long way from 30,000 as another poster from Loveland CO suggested last week.
Actually 400 is 400 too many imo but Turkey has been a mostly reliable ally going way back.
Admit it.

Obama has invaded Turkey, and will take over Turkey first, then finish off Assad in Syria.

Obama's gonna kill lots of Muslims, proving that he is one of them!!

The flooded areas in Staten Island should not be re-built, just as flood-prone areas in the Midwest should not be re-built.

At least not with taxpayer dollars.

If people want to live near the beach, let them assume the risk themselves.

Jersey Shore communities and the Rockaways in New York will be re-built with federal funding and will surely be destroyed again.
Same with New Orleans.
Makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?
Using your logic, when a police officer is shot, there is no sense having a surgeon remove the bullet and save his life. After all, he will probably just get shot again.

The point is helping people who need help. So what if the money comes from the federal government. I suspect that most of the homeowners who are suffering in those areas have payed plenty in federal taxes at some point in their lives. Some of them may have even lost their sons in wars they were sent to fight by the federal government. Do I think people like that are owned something by the federal government? You bet I do.

My God, you are nothing more than a liberal lackey after all, aren't you. Why waste so much glibness when you can just repeat, "It's not Obama's fault, he's trying as hard as he can, the mountain's too high, the road's too rough." You're pathetic.
This IS the Super Bowl, we're loosing the game, the new quarterback has fumbled repeatedly and thrown interceptions every time he attempts to score. What had been a close game is now a blow-out. But it's not his fault, we have to stick with him to the bitter end, for 'fairness' sake.
Fairness sakes??

Where you live, under a rock??

Obama won the election, it's not about fairness, it's about the will of the American people. DUH

Your idiot side lost, and will continue to, so long as neanderthals like you don't either learn or shut up.

Ann Coulter screamed that they should publish the names of women who had abortions. These people are sick in the head beyond words.
Btw, I don't think the names and addresses of gun owners should have been published either. What about privacy?
