I caught a quick clip of a Pelosi interview on the news this afternoon. Reporter asked her if Democrats were trying to reign in spending and she acted surprised saying "There is no spending problem in Washington but only a revenue problem". I began snickering over my Tuna Fish Sandwich.....and then she said "The best way to grow government revenue is to invest in college education". The clip ended.

The reporter then turned to the viewer grinning and said "Investment? That means more spending!". Back to you, Jim.

Two of the Boy Messiah's own killed that Chicago honor student, Hadiya Pendleton. They claim it was a matter of mistaken identity.

Maybe so but if it wasn't her then it would have been someone else being murdered that day. Maybe another Pizza Delivery woman who was trying to raise her kids with little money. Or a cab driver. Or a pedestrin in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Maybe this was another Fast & Furious case where those illegal guns were fed to Chicago trash by Rahm Immanuel and Eric Holder so to trace their movements on the street. Alas, they lost sight of the guns and the Boy Messiah will issue another Executive Order to cover their azzes and then turn around to blame those 'Gun Nuts' who cling to their 2nd Amendment Rights and religion......

The Senate bill would allow non-Indians to be prosecuted in tribal courts (kangaroo courts), a clear denial of due process.

It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.

In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.

Taking a longer-term view, such as that in a recent Treasury Department report, shows that our longer-term fiscal problem is in fact quite manageable.

conservative economist who worked for Reagan. and check it out. he's cited all the data. i really like this one...

.....if we look at projections from the Congressional Budget Office on January 7, 2009 – while Bush was still in office and which do not incorporate any Obama policies – we see that the deficit was projected to rise from $455 billion in 2008 to $1.2 trillion in 2009 under existing law.

The actual deficit for fiscal year 2009 was $1.55 trillion. But the difference was due entirely to lower revenues than expected, not higher spending. Outlays in fiscal year 2009 actually came in below CBO’s projection –$3,518 billion actual vs. a projection of $3,543 billion.

American citizens?

Senior Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki and another America-born militant were killed in Yemen early Friday morning by a CIA-led U.S. drone strike, marking the highest-profile takedown of terror leaders since the raid on Usama bin Laden's compound.

So, why then does Major Hassan have any rights, and why doesn't Obama order his immediate execution, without benefit of trial?

Basketball = Jordan boxing = Ali, Tyson,f ck naming them all. Look at the draft ratio black vs white in any big time sport besides baseball & the greatest in that was hank aaron/barry bonds.

USA HOLOCAUST

United States

#858597 Feb 12, 2013
"Overwhelming majorities of Americans -– Americans who believe in the 2nd Amendment -- have come together around common-sense reform, like background checks that will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun," Obama continued. "Senators of both parties are working together on tough new laws to prevent anyone from buying guns for resale to criminals. Police chiefs are asking our help to get weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets, because they are tired of being outgunned."

Universal background checks, and the tougher penalties for "straw purchases" of guns, are some of the most popular gun-control proposals among voters, and both may eventually win bipartisan support. But a ban on military-style weapons faces an uphill battle in Congress, where Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has championed a renewal of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, which expired in 2004.

MOST OF THE DEM DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THESE CHILDREN.
THIS IS A EXCUSE TO TAKE law abiding citizen GUNS AWAY
FROM WE THE PEOPLE!!!Dianne Feinstein A JEW WANT ANOTHER HOLOCAUST FOR WE THE PEOPLE OF THE USA TO GO AFTER LAW

Hillary will secure a Republican win which the Far Left Democrats are already laying the groundwork to repeat 1994 all over again and give control back to the Republicans of both the house & Senate.
