what does $211 million buy today...

"...Between 2000 and 2010, the CTA spent more than $211 million to influence California voters and elected officials. That is more money than the oil, tobacco and hospital industries combined."

Carol doesn't own a home, pays no state income taxes and, at $15.00 an hour it's highly unlikely she makes any charitable contributions beyond her pitiiful dollar in the church basket o she can pretend she is a Christian.

They're all equally responsible, but the Repubs will take the hit in polls.
Even Conservative writers like Krauthammer are saying the House has placed itself in a no-win situation, due to the TP folks, the very ones you so admire!!
So when they cave to Obama, will Boehner lose his job??
They forgot that this was the compromise to raise the debt ceiling

Did or dd not Obama submit a budget every year he was supposed to. The 2014 is due out this month.
It is a rather simple question that you can't seem to answer.
So did he or didn't he?
"real dumb"
I have made no comments regarding the budgets president nobama did or did not offer. It makes no difference whether he offered a budget or not, the budgets offered were BS. So bad even democrats mocked them
"real dumb" why do you continually change the topic? Why are so damn stoopid? Do you ever think before you post? Do you have your head up your arse? Why does every sane poster on this thread mock and laugh at your asinine statements? Do you practice being stoopid?

Washington Post - Closing Control Towers: http://tinyurl.com/cgqd86m

Always....ALWAYS remember, folks, that Liberal Media runs cover for the Boy Messiah. This article here does just that. The Boy Messiah wanted to cut only those things that would irritate the voters the most and not those that affected them the least. He is a calculating, disingenuous, crooked Chicken Little with a megaphone with Brown-Shirted Thugs standing behind him.

Thus, he cuts Air Traffic Control funding and he even began releasing Illegal Mexicans from Arizona Prisons DAYS BEFORE the Sequester was scheduled to take affect. This is the Vendetta Politics the Jerk-In-Chief plays; my way or the highway threats like a little kid taking his bat back home because he wasn't picked for the team he wanted. The Washington Post is a suck-up Progressive rag wearing kneepads for their Socialist Hero.

We don't have a President but a man bent of becoming a king. The King's New Clothes show us what he is: a butt-naked azzhole.

The list is endless. Everyone's money belongs to him and his money belongs to no one else but him.
Yeah, we can tell you Republicans are all broken up over poverty and the plight of illegals.

'I'm sorry'

You may recall me and my old associates and the many times I graced the front pages of your paper. If not, good for you.

I want to formally apologize for the image of hate that I helped bring upon this decent community. I could tell you I was ordered to do what I did and that I was young and dumb, manipulated and lied to, but it doesn't change the fact that it was still me. I wish I could take it back.

You don't have to forgive me and I don't blame you if you don't, but I need you, Coeur d'Alene, to know that I and so many before and after me are wrong. Hate is pointless, destructive to everyone involved, selfish, childish, and cowardly.

I'm sorry.

My name is Zach Beck and this is my story.

I was led to believe that without the white race, civilization as we know it would cease to exist. That the white race is the race of God and therefore it is the duty of the white race to bring forth His will, law, and word on Earth as it is in Heaven. That all non-whites are inferior to the white race and are subjected to our will, God's will. The proof of this? The Holy Bible. This is just a small piece of the foundation of the "white power" movement. I've spent the last 10 years eating, sleeping, talking, walking, thinking and believing this lie.

I was wrong.

....I didn't want to believe that I was wrong and that I had been lied to, but once you're not under constant mind control the illusion starts to dissipate. How quickly all depends on how consumed one's mind is. Mine? Years.

The foundation of racism is fear.

My transformation from one extreme to the other is more complex than what I can put in this letter. Just know that it is founded and not just based on emotions, but on logic, truth and facts.

I'm writing because I have a true story that the world needs to hear. To debate/defeat racism is first to understand it; otherwise your argument is weak. I can help. I want to help!

I am Zach Beck and I was wrong. This is my story. Thank you for your time.

i figured i go with a little more class than some of what i see around here. i could have used some violent rhetoric, but it should be able to go unsaid.

and you know the best thing about about being half white? i only have to be half a bigot.

Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.

On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

Sitting in judgment tonight, are we?

Does it matter we were homeowners for 25 years and just decided renting has an upside for a few more years?

My income is supplemental if that makes a difference.

Bush's team that kept showing the Liberal Media for what they are kept them at bay especially after a few of the liars in their midst were exposed.

This administration is, of course, taking the opposite tack and enlisting the lying Liberal Media's help to spread the manure.
