Based on your disclosures here, you don't have a pot to piss in, nor a window to throw it out of.
Oh, but you just want to take it away from those under 50.
That's why you're American scum.

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.
And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us???
George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house. Of course he was replaced by Rob Blagojevitch who is...that's right, also in the big house. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That is because he is fighting being sent to...that's right, the big house.
The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.
But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except that the state will go broke before the country does. Chicago and Illinois....set the pace for the rest of the country...
Yes, true, We should all go to those high rated education systems in red states like Alabama, Mississippi and Kentucky huh?

Perhaps Chicago should pass an ordinance requiring all gangbangers to surrender their illegal weapons.

That would solve the problem.

The demographics of this nation are sounding a death knell for you hateful Republiclowns.
Your war on women failed.
Your war on minorities failed.
Your war on science failed.
Your war on poor and struggling Americans has failed.
Your war on middle class Americans has failed.
Your party is stuck with a dwindling minority of old, white voters.
Whites will be a minority in America soon. They already are in many states.
Deal with it, loser.

It's how Nazi Germany suckered people into believing there was a war against the Jews too.
You are another sucker on the wrong side of history.
Looked at your paycheck yet? Ready to stand in long lines at hospitals and clinics?
Figured out the spending for SS is $2 billion more than the revenues from increasing SS taxes from our paychecks?
Frankly, nuc, you are nothing more than a pathetic blind follower of your blind ideology.
Wow Carol, now you're saying that there was no war on Jews in Germany?
1000 pieces of legislation brought forth by your party against womens rights
The middle class is dwindling because of the Bush tax cuts
Institutional racism from hiring to lending to housing to education and judicial system is well documented

Nobody cares about Obama's Cabinet or gun control.
Taxes, spending, and the deficit are the main issues, despite Democrat attempts to create trivial diversions.
By the way, why doesn't Obama withdraw from Afghanistan today? Nobody would even try to stop him.

The Petty, Spiteful Critics of Hagel

Liberal supporters of Hagel can speak for themselves, but I havenít seen any pro-Hagel arguments that concede that he is a mediocrity or that he would be a ďpotentially lousyĒ Secretary of Defense. Hagel appears to be well-qualified for the job, which is what matters most. It is also the one thing that his attackers have consistently avoiding discussing at any length. Hagelís competence isnít the issue, and most of his critics have never even bothered making a case against his competence. The bulk of the campaign against him has been ideological enforcement and character assassination.

That the selection offends and annoys people whose foreign policy recommendations have been so disastrous for the country is an additional piece of confirmation that Hagel was the better choice.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/lariso...

P.S. There isnít any need to ďpunishĒ Republican hawks with individual Cabinet nominations. Thatís silly. Their party has lost the last three of four elections, which is why they arenít in a position to install one of their own at the Pentagon. Throwing a fit over Hagelís nomination is one of the most obvious cases of sour grapes in recent years.

It's so funny for you to call others 'blind followers', while a poor person like you supports the wealthy, even as the greatest transfer of wealth in history from the Middle Class to the wealthy occurred under Bush's watch.
The good news is that your hatred and racism has been rejected, even in your home state!!
And your voice will become weaker and weaker, until it will no longer be heard.
And these are the words of the Holy Gospel!!
I can't believe she's gone that far over the cliff. No war against the Jews in Germany?
No war against women? middle class? minorities?

Speaking of poor systems, socialist Democrat. Do you recall when Spain was having it's election and it looked like a conservative was winning, then the terrorists hit and the sicialist liberal won?

Remember?

Guess what. The unemployment rate there is 26.6%. Must be Bush's fault, eh libtard?

Would you like to hear about another far left place like the kind you Democrats like. Ever hear of Greece with all of it's social programs & unions?

If you think Alabama is bad, just come to a blue state like Connecticut if you want to see a broken edication system where blacks are forced into inferior schools (no vouchers, thatnks to you people on the left).

I'm sure the people in Alabama can't wait until you leave either! The people down there are nice and respectful and care about their neighbors. You certainly don't fit in lib.

WRONG

9 of the bottom 10 ranked states for education are red states:

Far Below Average
42 Oklahoma 2.01
43 Nebraska 1.97
44 Nevada 1.93
45 Arizona 1.91
46 New Mexico 1.72
47 Alabama 1.60
48 Louisiana 1.59
49 West Virginia 1.58
50 Mississippi 1.11

A splash of color my ass. The big picture shows a correlation between a bad education and coming from a red state. The question is which caused the other
