That would require a person to think about what he is saying. Doesn't make for sensational headlines meant to scare the feeble minded. They'd rather believe that the black President is going to drone them to death, get whitey!!!
no need to be droned to death, all a respectable white person has to do is go to any city run by Democrats, like Chicago, south of a certain street. you might as well be in Afghanistan. because it is easier for Democrats to criticize the NRA for gun violence than own up to the dysfunctional culture they promote.

but it's nice to see the Tea Party pointing out racism in the GOP.
Democrats wearing a Republican costume for political convenience, like Boehner, are RINOs.
The TEA Party has always pointed out racism. Here's some links for you:

Of course, you know Alan West.

And, famed Baltimore neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson addressed the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday morning on healthcare. Dr. Carson often criticized Obamacare and government intrusion in healthcare while President Obama sat in the audience. Dr. Carson encouraged a program where newborn babies are given health savings account as an alternative to Obamacare.

This is what the TEA Party is about, much to your chagrin.

Thank you for promoting the TEA Party agenda. It is always appreciated when anyone identifies a Democrat disguised as a RINO.

Here’s another example of the unintended consequences of a failed policy pushed by Dems and Libs:

Wheels coming off
February 10, 2013

The central parts of ObamaCare don’t roll out until 2014, but the wheels are already falling off this clunker.

The latest news from four federal agencies is that

1) insurance will be a lot less affordable than Americans were led to expect,

2) fewer people than promised will get insurance and

3) millions of people who have coverage through a job now will lose it, thanks to the president’s “reforms.” Oh, and children are the biggest victims.

The Affordable Care Act is looking less and less affordable.

Start with the IRS’s new estimate for what the cheapest family plan will cost by 2016:$20,000 a year to cover two adults and three kids. And that will only cover 60 percent of medical bills, so add hefty out-of-pocket costs, too.

The next surprise is for parents who thought their kids would be covered by an employer. Sloppy wording in the law left that unclear until last week, when the IRS ruled that kids won’t be covered.

Here's an analogy I've used that you may have missed:
Three drunks are sitting in a bar, Galt, waxturd and DBWriter. Waxturd says to Galt, "I don't have any friends so I'm going to buy drinks all night for everyone in the bar and maybe someone will like me. Will you pay for it?". Galt says, "Sure I will.". When the tab comes DBWriter, who has been listening to all this says, "I wonder where waxturd is going to get the money to pay for all those drinks?".
You're running away from these questions like a dog escaping from Michael Vick's house.
You forgot to put content in you rpost. I'll help you correct your mistake. Here's the post again:
Monday morning. I guess it's time for you to do your usual clumsy dance and run away from answering these questions.
We still haven't gotten an answer to these questions:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the real-time video feed?
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
And, a new question:
Joe Biden says the government can infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Where is the text in the Constitution that gives the government the authority to infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms?
And, another question:
Eric Holder says the government can determine who in the United States is allowed to have a firearm. Where is the text in the Constitution that gives the government the authority to decide who in the United States is allowed to own a firearm?
The questions that Democrats can't, or won't answer just keeps growing.
The answer to the first two questions may describe treason.
If the third question isn't answered, the government collapses and the existence of the United States comes to an end.
The answer to the last two questions may describe the establishment of an unconstitutional dictatorship.
These questions will ultimately be answered. Hopefully, it will be through dialogue.
How about you do your part to save the country and answer these questions....

The former chairman of the Republican Party of Florida is headed to trial on fraud, theft and money laundering charges in a case fraught with embarrassment for the party over allegations of lavish spending and questionable behavior.

Jury selection was set to start Monday in the two-week trial. Testimony could cover allegations of prostitutes at a party fundraiser in the Bahamas, spending on fancy restaurants and luxury hotels by state GOP leaders, criminal charges of party money funneled to a private company controlled by Greer and party leaders stabbing each other in the back.

It's the Constitution that allowed an ignorant mulatto like Obama to become president.
Why do you object to a system of government that allows Obama, to identify one specific example, to become the head of state?
Perhaps you object to it because, after the rise to president, the Constitution prevents the establishment of a dictatorship.
Is that what's bothering you?

There was no 7 hour battle but two separate attacks. Obama was in a meeting with Panetta & the head of the joint chiefs an hour & 20 minutes after the first attack started. Obama gets his money from the treasury department. So you say the NRA will push for private ownership of armed drones.
No wonder you need to have subsidies to survive. You're too stupid to make it on your own.
Perhaps you are ignorant of what happened. It is obvious that the Al Qaeda attack in Benghazi was the result of a sophisticated plan.
The Al Qaeda assault on the location where the American ambassador was seemed to be intended to kidnap the American ambassador, not kill him. Stevens died of smoke inhalation when Al Qaeda attempted to smoke him out of a room instead of blowing the doors off and lighting him up with their AKs.
There was another Al Qaeda team prepositioned for an ambush to repulse the Americans that would respond to the initial assault on the location where they were attempting to kidnap Stevens. When it was obvious there would not be an assault on the Al Qaeda team attempting to kidnap the American ambassador, the Al Qaeda team responsible for ambushing the American relief force repositioned and attacked the subject team they initially intended to ambush at the location the American security team never left because they received orders to not assist the American ambassador.

And the White House watched this on real-time video.

Which leads to many other questions.... like:

Why did Obama lie for two weeks trying to cover up an Al Qaeda attack on the United States?

Thank you again for identifying another Democrat disguised as a RINO.
The TEA Party greatly appreciates your effort.
Again, thank you very much. We rely on the efforts of individuals significantly to identify those who are Republican In Name Only, and in reality their actions are indicative of the Democratic Party.
Again, thank you.

Starting in 2014, ObamaCare will require employers with 50 or more full-time employees to offer coverage or pay a penalty.“Affordable” coverage, that is — meaning the employee can’t be told to contribute more than 9.5% of his salary. For example, a worker earning $40,000 a year cannot be required to pay more than $3.800.

But the law doesn’t specifically mandate family coverage — and now the administration says that won’t be required.

You can see why: If the lowest-cost family plan (again, 2 adults and 3 kids) is to run a whopping $20,000, and if the employee’s contribution is limited to $3,800, the employer’s tab would be $16,200 — adding about $7.40 an hour to the cost of that employee. Wisely, the IRS announced on Jan. 30 that employers won’t have to pay for dependents.

But the CBO’s much-cited prediction that ObamaCare would leave only 30 million people uninsured by 2016 was based on the assumption that kids would be covered by employers. At the very least, employers insuring their workers for the 1st time to avoid the penalty are unlikely to do that.

So how will the kids be covered? They won’t. The IRS shocked the law’s advocates by announcing that the insurance exchanges won’t provide subsidies for a child whose parent is covered at work.

Nor will these parents be penalized for not insuring their children — the IRS will kindly consider the kids exempt from the mandate.

Also exempt are millions of people who’ll stay uninsured because their state is wisely choosing not to loosen Medicaid eligibility.

Some background: Despite President Obama’s promises to help solve the problem of the uninsured by making private health plans more affordable, the law expands coverage mainly by forcing states to loosen their Medicaid eligibility rules. But the Supreme Court ruled that the feds can’t command states in this way.

At 1st, the CBO said that ruling would only prevent 4 million people from gaining coverage — but more states than it expected are refusing to go along; it could well be 8 million more without coverage.

Oh & the CBO last week also doubled its previous estimate on how many people will lose the health coverage they now get through work, upping the figure to 8 million by 2016 and 12 million by 2019. Several top consulting firms put the figures even higher.

Yet the biggest setback is that most states are refusing to set up insurance exchanges. The exchanges are supposed to sell the government-mandated plans and hand out taxpayer-funded subsidies to most enrollees.

Here’s the glitch. The law says that in states that refuse, the federal government can set up an exchange. But the law empowers only state exchanges, not federal ones, to hand out subsidies. The Obama administration says it will disregard the law and offer subsidies in all 50 states anyway, but the case will likely go to the Supreme Court.

If the courts uphold the clear language of the law, then some 8 million people in the affected states won’t be eligible for subsidies to cover that $20,000 (or more) insurance bill. That’s another 8 million without coverage.

All in all, at least 40 million people could be uninsured in 2016, only 9 million fewer than before the law was passed.

Expect the momentum for repealing this law to grow as its flaws, perverse incentives and faulty predictions come to light.

Jim Greer, the former GOP chair who's trial was scheduled to begin this morning has instead changed his plea to guilty on some of the charges.

Greer's trial was expected to cause tremendous damage and embarrassment to many Florida (R) and former (R) politicians including, Crist and Rubio and perhaps spinning off criminal charges against others.
