Cantor: GOP Needs To Explain Party’s Positions To Voters
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/c...
yes, that is different than explaining why we should hate Obama.
say what Mitt? or rather...say what Mitt who?
Well, he explained exactly nothing. Boehner said his number one agenda is to abolish abortion forever. Like that's his worst problem. I like this from the comments:

just do not think sucking the di*k of every super-wealthy societal parasite is ever going to be a big winner for the Republican Party, but I could be wrong. Maybe that is what the American people want?

Should I vote for the party that says I have no legal rights and that they can imprison and torture me at will or do I vote for the party that says I have no legal rights and that they can execute me at will? I'm kinda leaning towards death over torture and imprisonment.
Need an answer, 2014's just around the corner.
Well, you can do what you usually do; not vote. Ouch! But I'd choose death too.

Bruised from Battling Obama, Eric Cantor Softens His Tone in Domestic Policy Speech

Eric Cantor is acutely aware that the GOP has an image problem.

For the past year-and-a-half, the House majority leader and his colleagues have been manning the barricades of negativity: "No" to Obamacare. "No" to immigration reform. "No" to gun control. "No" to higher taxes on the wealthy. "No" to just about anything the White House wants.

Now Cantor is trying to soften his hard-edged reputation, portraying the Republican Party as caring deeply about education, health care and innovation.

I would go with death depending on your tolerance for pain as torture can be painful.

United States Department of the Treasury Responsibilities

The basic functions of the Department of the Treasury mainly include:

- Producing all currency, coinage and postage stamps of the U.S.

- Collecting taxes, duties and money paid to and due to the U.S.

- Paying all bills of the U.S.

- Managing the federal finances

- Managing government accounts and the United States public debt

- Supervising national banks and thrift institutions

- Advising on domestic and international financial, monetary, economic, trade and tax policy (fiscal policy being the sum of these, and the ultimate responsibility of Congress)

- Enforcing federal finance and tax laws

- Investigating and prosecuting tax evaders

- Publishing statistical reports

With respect to the estimation of revenues for the executive branch, Treasury serves a purpose parallel to that of the Office of Management and Budget for the estimation of spending for the executive branch, the Joint Committee on Taxation for the estimation of revenues for Congress, and the Congressional Budget Office for the estimation of spending for Congress.

From 1830 until 1901, the responsibility of overseeing weights and measures was carried out by the Office of Standard Weights and Measures, which was part of the U.S. Treasury Department. After 1901, the responsibility was assigned to the agency that subsequently became known as the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

here we have another psycho allowed to roam the streets:
STAMFORD -- A Transportation Security Administration screener at John F. Kennedy International Airport was arraigned at state Superior Court in Stamford Monday for allegedly striking his 75-year-old mother a day after he was charged with harassing and threatening his psychiatrist.
Christopher Wilkie, 43, of 210 Shore Road, Long Beach, N.Y., was charged with third-degree assault on a person over 60, second-degree harassment, second-degree threatening and two counts of breach of peace.
Wilkie was arrested just down the street from his mother's home on MacGregor Drive after a witness saw him assaulting his mother in a car on Saturday at about 2 p.m., his court files show.
He was also arrested Friday after police obtained a warrant for his arrest following a troubling incident in his psychiatrist's Summer Street parking garage.
According to his arrest warrant affidavit, Wilkie was waiting when his psychiatrist pulled into his office at about 6:30 a.m. on Dec. 26. An agitated Wilkie, who had a 7 a.m. appointment with the psychiatrist, nearly pulled him out of his car window by his shirt, saying, "You are out to get me. I will get you and your daughter. In another situation I would have killed you. My people are coming to give you your instructions tomorrow," the warrant states.
Wilkie drove off and his psychiatrist called police to report the incident.
Judge Kenneth Povodator reduced Wilkie's bond to $10,000 on the assault charge and forbid him from going to his mother's house. Bello said Wilkie will go to another psychiatrist for care.
In videos, Wilkie can be seen using shirts to cover three surveillance cameras in the parking garage before the attack, the warrant said. They also show Wilkie taping a note to his psychiatrist's door, saying "I am on to you, you (expletive deleted) punk."
Later that day, Wilkie made seven phone calls to the psychiatrist's office, making harassing and threatening statements to the staff, the warrant said.
The psychiatrist said he has been seeing Wilkie for 10 years without problem. But that morning he appeared to be "whacked out on something," the psychiatrist surmised.
With his mother sitting in court Monday, Wilkie's attorney, Robert Bello, told Judge Kenneth Povodator his client was off his medications.
Bello said he had Wilkie's medications and his mother would be able to help get them to Wilkie if he could be released on bond. Bello said Wilkie had a clean criminal record and was not a flight risk, because he used to live with his mother in Stamford.
Supervisory Assistant State's Attorney Steven Weiss said Wilkie has been a TSA screener for nine years and he was concerned because Wilkie had reportedly been planning on getting a gun.
Wilkie denied the claim before Povodator quieted him.

when there is a headline of a shooting, whose fault will it be--the libs who close institutions where this guy should be? and/or the judge who let him out on $10K bond?
Why are you so stupid Jane? If the man held a job without incident for 9 years and just recently fell apart; then he needs to be back on the medications. Are you proposing locking everyone up who acts weird? Who will make that decision? No one can commit a person to an institution who is an adult.

Race to the Top” is Racist

Hundreds of Black and brown parents, students and activists descended on Washington to protest thousands of school closings under President Obama’s Race to the Top program.“For the first time you have parents uniting, communities uniting, students uniting in challenging these policies and calling them racist,” said journalist Jaisal Noor. The protestors denounced preferential treatment of charter schools, and called for a national moratorium on school closings.

Ras Baraka for Mayor of Newark

“We need to fight for living wage jobs,” said Ras Baraka, a high school principal, son of poet and activist Amiri Baraka, and candidate for mayor of Newark, New Jersey. Current mayor Cory Booker, a darling of the media and corporations, has his sights set on a U.S. Senate seat. Booker “either didn’t care about our problems from the beginning,” said Baraka,“or he faced our problems and realized it was too heavy form him to deal with and carry out his own, personal agenda at the same time.”
