Homer, how come you always keep saying everything is getting better when CNN Money says the Federal Reserve was blind to the crisis in 2007 and there was a calm before the storm then too.

http://money.cnn.com/2013/01/18/news/economy/...

Are you sure things are going to get better?

Because you wouldn't say it if it weren't true. Right?

Bloomberg is a Racist Dictator, Just Like Obama:

NEW YORK (AP)-- Opponents of the city's limit on the size of sugary drinks are raising questions of racial fairness alongside other complaints as the novel restriction faces a court test.

The NAACP's New York state branch and the Hispanic Federation have joined beverage makers and sellers in trying to stop the rule from taking effect March 12. With a hearing set Wednesday, critics are attacking what they call an inconsistent and undemocratic regulation, while city officials and health experts defend it as a pioneering and proper move to fight obesity.

The issue is complex for the minority advocates, especially given obesity rates that are higher than average among blacks and Hispanics, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control. The groups say in court papers they're concerned about the discrepancy, but the soda rule will unduly harm minority businesses and "freedom of choice in low-income communities."

The latest in a line of healthy-eating initiatives during Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration, the beverage rule bars restaurants and many other eateries from selling high-sugar drinks in cups or containers bigger than 16 ounces. Violations could bring $200 fines; the city doesn't plan to start imposing those until June.

The city Board of Health OK'd the measure in September. Officials cited the city's rising obesity rate - about 24 percent of adults, up from 18 percent in 2002 - and pointed to studies linking sugary drinks to weight gain. Care for obesity-related illnesses costs more than $4.7 billion a year citywide, with government programs paying about 60 percent of that, according to city Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley.

"It would be irresponsible for (the health board) not to act in the face of an epidemic of this proportion," the city says in court papers. The National Association of Local Boards of Health and several public health scholars have backed the city's position in filings of their own.

Opponents portray the regulation as government nagging that turns sugary drinks into a scapegoat when many factors are at play in the nation's growing girth.

The American Beverage Association and other groups, including movie theater owners and Korean grocers, sued. They argue that the first-of-its-kind restriction should have gone before the elected City Council instead of being approved by the Bloomberg-appointed health board.

Five City Council members echo that view in a court filing, saying the Council is "the proper forum for balancing the city's myriad interests in matters of public health." The Bloomberg administration counters that the health board, made up of doctors and other health professionals, has the "specialized expertise" needed to make the call on limiting cola sizes.

The suit also argues the rule is too narrow to be fair. Alcohol, unsweetened juice and milk-based drinks are excluded, as are supermarkets and many convenience stores - including 7-Eleven, home of the Big Gulp - that aren't subject to city health regulations.

The NAACP and the Hispanic Federation, a network of 100 northeastern groups, say minority-owned delis and corner stores will end up at a disadvantage compared to grocery chains.

"This sweeping regulation will no doubt burden and disproportionally impact minority-owned businesses at a time when these businesses can least afford it," they said in court papers. They say the city should focus instead on increasing physical education in schools.

During Bloomberg's 11-year tenure, the city also has made chain restaurants post calorie counts on their menus and barred artificial trans fats in french fries and other restaurant food.

<quoted text>"John Campbell was born in Georgia on June 24, 1811. He was admitted to the bar in Georgia at 17 years of age, in 1828. Two years later, he moved to Alabama to practice law, where he was lauded an an excellent advocate. A seat on the Court opened after the death in 1852 of John McKinley, also from Alabama. That was a presidential election year, and Millard Fillmore, a lame duck, was unable to gain Senate approval of any his three nominees to the seat. After the inauguration of Franklin Pierce in March 1853, some members of the Supreme Court urged him to nominate Campbell, who was an experience Supreme Court advocate. Campbell was just 41 years old, although he had been practicing law for over 20 years. As a southerner, Campbell supported the institution of slavery, and in 1857 wrote a strong opinion in Dred Scott asserting the claim that the Constitution was a compact among the states. This consequence of the "compact" theory of the Constitution was that states possessed the power to leave the Union. When Alabama seceded from the Union in April 1861, Campbell resigned from the Court and returned to the state. He served in the Confederate executive branch, and after the war was imprisoned for several months. After Campbell was released from prison, he moved to New Orleans, Louisiana and practiced law. He was the lawyer for the butchers in 1873 in the Slaughterhouse Cases. Although his clients lost, the Court borrowed his arguments in the late 1890s when it began to strike down state laws on substantive due process grounds."
Show me where he was a liberal...just because you say something doesn't make it so...like being a slum developed doesn't make one a builder.
And saying you're a school teacher, despite OVERWELMING evidence to the contrary, doesn't make you one.

Campbell fits the profile, as evidenced by his words and deeds.

Johnson's a Teabagger.
Glad to see Hillary put him in his place.
did you see what he said in regards to Tammy Baldwin, WI's other Senator, after her election??
He's another sexist Teabagger. And they wonder why they have 8% support, all on Topix!!
""In an Associated Press interview on Wednesday, Johnson said he hoped he would be able to work with Baldwin in the Senate -- as soon as he explained the "facts" of the budget to her.
"Hopefully I can sit down and lay out for her my best understanding of the federal budget because they're simply the facts," he said. "Hopefully she'll agree with what the facts are and work toward common sense solutions."
"I was a double major in college in mathematics and political science, and I served for six years on the House Budget Committee in my first six years in the House," Baldwin responded in an interview with The Huffington Post on Friday.
"And I am very confident that when proposals come before the U.S. Senate, I will be able to evaluate them as to how they benefit or harm middle-class Wisconsinites. A yardstick of 'does it create jobs,''does it lower the deficit' and 'does it help grow the middle class' is an important one. I'm quite confident that I have those abilities," she added.
Baldwin has served in Congress since 1999; Johnson took office in 2011.
The congresswoman said she and Johnson have spoken since the election. "And I am confident that there will be issues in Wisconsin that we can work on, because there have been already in our two years overlapping," she said.
As the Wisconsin State Journal has noted, Johnson and Baldwin "represent near opposite ends of the political spectrum," with Johnson winning his Senate seat as part of the 2010 electoral surge of Tea Party-favored conservatives.
Baldwin will be the first woman senator from the state of Wisconsin and the first openly gay person in the U.S. Senate. She defeated the state's former Republican governor, Tommy Thompson, by approximately 6 percentage points on Tuesday.""
<quoted text>
and it's funny how that 8% thinks their opinions are in the majority.

kind of like the 4.26% of republicans who watch FOX acting like the ratings are a big deal.

That's the ticket!!

We know using logic on these nitwits doesn't work.

We know using links to actual news reports has no affect on them, they deny all but their tinfoil hat craziness.

Time to give them their own sort of brain dead responses right back in kind!!

I'm using it on the Dweeb/TSM sockpuppet pair!!

John McCain looked & spoke like an idiot claiming Rice should have gone on the Sunday talk shows & provide classified information.

I would like to know that when John McCain was supposedly told by Ambassador Stevens on how bad it was, where are his bills before the Senate, his talk in the Senate, any actions he took to fix it?

The biggest fool was the fraud Rand Paul . He was too f*cking uninformed to know embassy security is not always determined by the US but by the country where the embassy is located proving he is yet another dumbf*ck Tea Party jackass. Hillary basically ignored him.

Obama was right change is coming. He has brought about so much change that we are now having liberal republicans. Ooh i love it, i love it. A new kind of Republican has been made, it of course will cause internal strife and discord among the GOP. The tea party is full of despair, and is collapsing. Things are on the upswing.

Hillary delivered a super smackdown to these idiots; regarding McCain, you're absolutely right, if he knew about it before, what did he do about it? Felt the same when he asked that.
Missed Rand Paul; I saw him itching and twitching, sure he must have made a damn fool of himself too. Idiots. All of them
