You'll notice the complete absence of attention paid to the 20 small children riddled with bullets in Connecticut. Where's the outrage? Perhaps, in this case, it's a result of Hillary Clinton's not personally pulling the trigger?

That probably explains why medical schools, research parks, hospitals and medical centers are being built at such a rapid pace eh?

As THE BOY who is still in over his head "begins his second term in office, trust in the federal government remains mired near a historic low, while frustration with government remains high. And for the -----> FIRST TIME,<----- a majority of the public says that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms."

The pay isn't less.Can't you read?

Funny, yesterday you said cutting pay of government employees wouldn't make any difference.

Just sharing what's out there. You decide.
However, this is also out there. Again, you decide.
The Fed’s ongoing bond purchases have helped lower interest rates and pumped newly created money into the economy helping support an economic recovery.
Stocks in Europe had been trading down slightly but moved higher after the U.S. non-farm payrolls figures roughly met market expectations.
Relief rallies on staving off the so-called “fiscal cliff” faded in Europe and the U.S. after the Fed minutes Thursday showed that officials were divided about how long to continue its extraordinary stimulus measures.
So, do you think the Feds printing more money is the solution to this economy?
Or will it devalue the dollar sooner than later?
Serious question.
Serious answer:

I have no doubt that both parties are actively and in concert working towards monetizing the debt, an action that has historically led to financial catastrophes like the '08 crash. That we've only had tiny flirtations with deflation tells me that inflation may only be held at bay by the frigidity of the credit market and that once that market thaws completely inflation will take off. I'd expect it to resemble the 70's only worse.

Dumbass Dave really getting desperate.
Now, even the leftwing media (like Chuck Todd) are heavily criticizing Hagel for being totally unprepared in his testimony, to the point of being unaware of Obama policy on Iran.

Unfortunately there is some truth in what you say, because the Republicans are too easily manipulated by the media.
Libertarian Party might be better if they favored spending cuts instead of massive tax increases to balance the budget. Alas, their chief spokesperson says that is not the case, that spending cannot be cut.
Don't put words in my mouth. I asked you for evidence that either party took spending cuts seriously. Lacking any sort of meaningful spending reduction proposals or actions the only choice is to increase revenues because I consider theft immoral especially when compared to just doing without. Since you and your type can't do without you should at least have to pay for what you get.

Friggin' welfare queens.
You're wasting your time, logic sails right over their heads. Probably the dumbest argument against Obamacare is that a panel was created to deny coverage for some "necessary" procedure. These morons are so clueless that they expect us to pretend that no medical procedure was ever denied in the past for ANY reason!

Not diversity within the condo ghettos. The NY Jew oldsters lead to Jewish delis as Cuban refugees lead to Cuban restaurants. Good eatin' in S. FL.

More video of celebration over the Ambassador's dead body.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =ZuTHmLEy5BEXX
Same people who dragged him onto the streets.
Hillary was still saying it was a spontaneous mob attack based on a video even after the Cheerleading Squad, NBC, reported the White House knew it was a terrorist attack within two days.
So who you gonna believe? Hillary?
Look at the video. Even if Hillary didn't make he comment about people dragging the Ambassador's body to safety, the people in this video are cheering when they dragged his body out of a building and onto the streets.
Hillary lied once to us about a video and spontaneous mob.
So, I ask again, who are you going to believe? Hillary?
The ambassador's body was pulled from the burning consulate and taken by vehicle to a nearby hospital where attempts to revive were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead by a medical doctor.

One more time, there were no streets convenient to the consulate building. Dragging through the streets is a fkn lie.

The CIA base learned later on that the ambassador's body was at the hospital, retrieved it and sent it along to Dover with Smith and the two who died defending the CIA base.

The testimony by Hagel was less than reassuring as to his qualifications for the job.
Well, if he was up for the post of Executive Dancing Bear I'd agree. The performance, as all politics in this country have become, was just a show.

Medicare is not a handout. People who qualify for it have already paid for it. I believe the original comments were about crappy Medicare coverage.

Who told you they were "cheering"???

I hear a lot of shouting and see concerned faces. If they were "cheering" wouldn't you expect more smiles?

Somebody told you they were cheering so that's what you see because you're a good little soldier in the fight for what's right (no matter how wrong it is).
