so i'm wondering when the hearings begin on our failed Freedom Agenda in Iraq. we need to have an open discussion about all of those people who were killed because Dick Cheney finally got his wish.

so let's talk about how much of the bad news about Iraq was buried right before the 2004 election. then we can talk about lying about the cost of an 'entitlement' giveaway to seniors so they would vote for Bush.

<quoted text> Bil Clinton was the nations 42 president. How does that in any way shape or form qualify him as a psychologist fit to diagnose poverty. He was better than most republicans (all if you ask me), but he was'nt that good. You can't diagnose poverty until you've lived it. It has less to do with choices a child makes early in life & more to do with decisions made for a child without the knowledge to understand them. A child is a child for a reason. They lack the capability of understanding a situation completely, dissecting and diagnosing, & acting accordingly. Someone doesn't make decisions early & create poverty. Poverty is a disease inherited by the poor. In most cases passed down through generations like family heirlooms. Most peoples imaginations aren't strong enough to think of the daily hardships that growing up truly poor can take you through. And though i've never lived it personally, I grew up with it, played with it, gave food & clothes to it, & yes watched it with my own 2 eyes feast on the lives of every living organism in that house, so you or Bil Clinton should speak on it until you've witnessed it 1st hand
I grew up on a 20-acre subsistence farm in rural Lousisana in a family with semi-literate parents who had 5 children.
Don't try to tell me about working all your life and not having anything.
You equate riding a government gravy train and not doing anything for yourself while everyone who works pays for everything you have with being poor. You actually live in luxury. If you had to actually live in the standard you provided for yourself, instead of having the government steal from people providing for themselves to give to you while you don't do a goddam thing for yourself, you'd actually have a clue about what it is to be poor.

If you want to see what poor people really live like, just follow me around the world. I guarantee you won't see any tourists where I have to go.

Besides, here's some real-world facts:

Poor people dont' have mobile phones. If you see a mobile phone, you don't see a poor person.

Poor people don't have money to buy booze and drugs and stolen guns and tatoos and designer hoodies and Air Jordan shoes and cars and gas and food and... etc., etc., etc. If you see any of these, you don't see a poor person.

Poor people don't have the luxury to be idle all day and play basketball at midnight. If you see this, you don't see a poor person.

If you dont' like being what you ignorantly call "poor", get a fucking job. If you can't find a job, there are 30 million illegal aliens here. Take one of those jobs.

Or, you can use that degree in engineering you earned when you took advantage of the multitude of opportunities available to every goddam person in the country and get a well-paying job.
... didn't do that, did you?

Well, because you won't do a goddam thing for yourself, I just have one thing to say to you:

Work or starve.

We'll review what your choices in life are after you've made a decision on that.

That would make sense if money grew on trees.
However, the reality is, money doesn't grow on trees and the government has to be paid for. To pay for the government, there has to be a source of money to take from.
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
About the Benghazi incident, it's uncontestable that the real-time video of Al Qaeda killing Americans was being watched in the White House for 7 hours. And it's obvious orders came from the White House to hang those Americans out to dry and let Al Qaeda kill them. Where was Obama?
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

Obama to use 2 Bibles when he takes oath of office


Published January 10, 2013

Associated Press


President Obama is putting a symbolic twist on a time-honored tradition, taking the oath of office for his second term with his hand placed not on a single Bible, but two -- one owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and one by Abraham Lincoln.

OBAMA USED THE WRONG BIBLE,HE SHOULD HAVE USED THE REV.WRIGHT BIBLE CANNOT THIS MAN DO ANYTHING RIGHT??????????
**********

Obama, Rev. Wright, and a Dubious Political Theology

Paul Edwards, "The Paul Edwards Program," WLQV Detroit

March 19, 2008

Senator Obama’s “A More Perfect Union” speech was political rhetoric at its finest. While skillfully denouncing the words of his pastor and spiritual mentor, Barack Obama left intact a tacit endorsement of the philosophical worldview that fuels the incendiary rhetoric of Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Rev. Wright is not merely ranting when he says things like the following:

The government gives them [black people] the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law, and then wants us to sing “God Bless America?” No, no, no! Not “God BLESS America,” God DAMN America. That’s in the Bible. For killing innocent people. God damn America for treating her citizens as less than human ….

These words betray a commitment to a dangerous political theology. Rev. Wright’s worldview is a poisonous mixture of Marxist socialism and a distorted view of the gospel of Jesus Christ which has as its chief goal the obliteration of Anglo/European influence on American life, culture and politics. Rev. Wright’s worldview comes across loud and clear:

...[Jesus] cares about what a poor black man has to face every day in a country and a culture controlled by rich white people … Jesus was a poor, black man who lived in a country, and who lived in a culture that was controlled by rich, white people. The Romans were rich. The Romans were Italian, which means they were European, which means they were white. And the Romans ran everything in Jesus’s country.

Senator Obama has a two-decades-long association with Rev. Wright and his church, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. In the mission statement at its Web site, Trinity’s commitment to Black Liberation Theology is clearly outlined. Furthermore, in an interview with Sean Hannity, Rev. Wright confirmed the work of James Cone, considered by many the founder of Black Liberation Theology, as a primary influence in the shaping his worldview. Evangelical blogger Joe Carter, in a recent post, quotes Cone:

Oh that's right., You dumbass right whiners never ever had sex before you had paying jobs.
My God you people are dumber than sh*t. You bitch about out of wedlock births to women under 19 but want to make contraceptives more difficult to get.
But hey, in the words of John Galt & Rush Limbaugh, women who have sex without being married are all sluts. You know, women like your mother, wife & daughters.
Paint your argument with moral clothes, and use ridicule.... LOL

The truth is, the choices people make define the life they will live. Here are some choices people make, and the results of those choices.

According to Bill Clinton's administration, poverty is directly related to choices people make early in life.
What is not disputable is that the best way for women to avoid a life of poverty is to do three things:
1. Finish high school
2. Do not have children out of wedlock
3. Do not have children before age 20

If you want to have feweer people living in what you ignorantly call "poverty", teach them to make better choices.

What they need is a community organizer that can lead them away from the culture that propagates so-called "poverty" toward a life of dignified self-reliance.
Do you know of anyone who has done this?

I can't think of anyone....

In spite of the surrounding conditions that usually spook investors and markets, investors are remarkably bullish, confident, and optimistic.

That can be seen most clearly in the VIX Index, also known as the Fear Index.

It was at just 13.6 on Wednesday, its lowest level of fear (highest level of bullishness) in the last five years, lower even than at any of the rally or market tops since 2007.

Could it be the calm before a storm?

On many issues the Nazis align quite agreeably with liberals. The Nazis enforced strict gun control, which made their agenda possible and highlights the necessity of an armed populace.
The Nazis separated church and state to marginalize religion’s influence. Hitler despised biblical morality and bourgeois (middle class) values. Crosses were ripped from the public square in favor of swastikas. Prayer in school was abolished and worship confined to churches. Church youth groups were forcibly absorbed into the Hitler Youth.
Hitler extolled public education, even banning private schools and instituting “a fundamental reconstruction of our whole national education program” controlled by Berlin. Similar to liberals’ cradle to career ideal, the Nazis established state administered early childhood development programs; “The comprehension of the concept of the State must be striven for by the school as early as the beginning of understanding.”
Foreshadowing Michelle Obama,“The State is to care for elevating national health.” Nanny State intrusions reflect that persons are not sovereign, but belong to the state. Hitler even sought to outlaw meat after the war; blaming Germany’s health problems on the capitalist (i.e. Jewish) food industry. The Nazis idealized public service and smothered private charity with public programs.

thing is during Hitler's time Conservatives where actually the True Liberals(in the Classical sense)it was FDR that redefined the what it meant to be Liberal in the modern sense its a Bigot because their economical and social Policies are not Liberal at all.

Adolf Hitler agrees to a coalition with conservatives.

NOVEMBER 6, 1932
NAZIS LOSE SUPPORT IN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS
In the Reichstag (German parliament) elections of November 1932, the Nazis lose almost two million votes from the previous elections of July. They win only 33 percent of the vote. It seems clear that the Nazis will not gain a majority in democratic elections, and Adolf Hitler agrees to a coalition with conservatives. After months of negotiations, the president of Germany, Paul von Hindenburg, will appoint Hitler chancellor of Germany in a government seemingly dominated by conservatives on January 30, 1933.

I guess you didn't get the memo, dingbat. Your buddies stopped politicizing the Iraq war a long time ago.

"Barack Obama declares Iraq war a success"

The president told an audience of soldiers at Fort Bragg that the final pullout from Iraq after nearly nine years of war is a "historic" moment and that the country they leave behind is "an extraordinary achievement".

"Dozens of bases with American names that housed thousands of American troops have been closed down or turned over to the Iraqis. Thousands of tons of equipment have been packed up and shipped out. Tomorrow, the colours of United States Forces Iraq, the colours you fought under, will be formally cased in a ceremony in Baghdad," he said. "One of the most extraordinary chapters in the history of the American military will come to an end. Iraq's future will be in the hands of its people.
