I wonder, did your mother or wife have sex before marriage? Are they immoral (sluts) too? Rush Limbaugh would call them sluts.
Your preoccupation with that word indicates some deep-seated mental problem.

Probably related to your mother.

Sorry. You may still like Christie, and maybe he will be a good Governor for New Jersey. But Christie is clearly not a Conservative and clearly not reliable.

Maybe Obama's, cough, legacy of taking us further down the deficit hole without even considering cuts in anything except defense...continuing a war that was deemed "unwinnable" from the very beginning...creating an even deeper resentment towards America with the acceleration of drones that often kill as many innocents...hiding behind the presidency to carry out his own personal agenda...and deceiving the American public for personal and political gain...is more up Realtime's alley and legacies.

That has always been a ponder point for non-femnazi's anywhere....o0..really femnazi's...yuh really want to go into mortal combat under "no shoot orders" with the likes of some of those stone-age mentality, craggy rock cave dwelling, snake type neanderthals over yonder?
Me thinks the smerter ones would prefer having the remote control buttons for the drones in one hand, and the microscopic honing cameras in the other.
My concern is more for the male soldiers who are likely to do foolish things to protect women in combat. That plus the huge problem of raped female prisoners.

But women should be subject to Selective Service, whether for combat roles or not.

If the draft is ever resumed, requiring females to be drafted would be a slam-dunk court case.

Pass a law banning volcanoes, or EPA regulations controlling emissions.

Security was removed in Libya of all places. Has there been any accounting of who made that decision or an explanation as to why?
If Hillary didn't read those cables of distress, why not and who did?
Who made the decision to take al-Qaeda out of the mix and replace the video as the reason for the attack? Who made the decision to put Rice in front of the cameras to falsely claim that was the reason for the attack?
Where was the president when all these decisions were being made to intentionally deceive the American public - and why was he willingly a part of it?
It's the deception that lingers. Hillary didn't even seem to think it mattered who was responsible or why. That's an astonishing statement in itself considering the many unanswered questions that still haven't been answered.
Or maybe you have them. Most of us are still waiting to find out how far up the chain this deception went.
Do you not care about deception for no other reason than political posturing to win an election when four Americans are dead in a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11?
Because I certainly do.
Security was removed in Libya???

When you start out with that sort of nonsense It's difficult to continue reading you post.

There were 1.3 million cables from the various embassies/missions to the Secretary of State last year, each addressed to Hillary Clinton. The specific cables from ambassador Stevens re; security are classified, we don't know what those cables requested.

There was a single tough question yesterday, a (R) congressman asked Hillary if she had any idea why Stevens had traveled to Benghazi without his security. The committee chair quickly interrupted telling the congressman that he could not ask that question at the hearing but would have to submit it in writing.

Given a choice to vote "for" or "against" nine of President Obama's key proposals to reform the nation's gun laws, Americans support all of them, a new Gallup poll released Wednesday found.
Notably, Americans back criminal background checks for gun sales 91% to 8%, more mental health programs 82% to 15%, reinstating a federal assault weapons ban 60% to 35% and limiting the sale of high-capacity magazines to 10 rounds per clip 54% to 43%, the poll finds.
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/g...
"The question does not tell respondents that all nine proposals come from Obama's recently released plan to reduce gun violence; however, the wordings used to describe them intentionally follow the White House's "Now Is the Time" plan descriptions," Gallup says.
You use the word "magazine" and "clip" interchangeably in one sentence. Which do you mean?

they wouldn't be worried if there was no reason to be worried.
they've been looking at the polls, and once again, they don't care what the majority wants.
The overwhelming majority of Representative Metcalfe's constituents are opposed to gun control legislation. Why should responsible rural deer hunters be penalized because urban gangbangers can't control themselves?

These goobers think they have the right to know everything, Hillary gave a good smackdown yesterday, especially regarding blokes funding by the republicans. McCain made a fool of himself as usual. What a blowhard, and Rand Paul is a dope.

better tell the court that their interpretation that the Court is the final word in interpreting the Constitution is subject to 'natural law'.
i'm sure they'll get right on it.
and i think your natural law thing is a failed birther screed. maybe you should be more specific so we can ascertain as to how you came up with that one.
Anyone who believes that security and prosperity for all can be provided by a government is a fool or a thief. The way that works, the elitistís thief in government use the authority they derive from the fools the steal from the free.

The delusion of the day is to enrich all classes at the expense of Americans Freedom and liberty; it is to generalize plunder under pretense of organizing it. Now, legal plunder may be exercised in an infinite number of ways. Plunder comes in an infinite multitude of plans for organization; Tariffs, protection, perquisites, gratuities, encouragements, progressive taxation, free public education, right to work, right to profit, right to wages, right to assistance, right to instruments of labor, gratuity credit, on and on. And it is all these plans, taken as a whole, with what they have in common, Legal Plunder, known as Communisms.
