Did you see Mitts mom jeans? Between those and that quick step walking, made him look gay, the perfect hair etc., not that there's anything wrong with that.
Oh, almost forgot: GFY
what is wrong with looking gay? i thought libs approve of such looks and promote/defend it in every aspect of our culture. but, obviously as a woman who had to settle, you go for the gold tooth, skinny guy with a goatee look. the kind that NEVER played sports except for shooting baskets or each other at baby mama showers.

Still denying the Model A followed the Model T!! You bring stupid to new heights!!

And I'' gladly exploit your ignorance!!

I love watching you and your series of lies self destruct!! As you try to run away from your earlier comments.

So you claim to find links, but you were too stupid to find the one that said the Model T was followed by the Model A?? Hell, all you had to do is look up Henry Ford!! You were too busy looking at kiddie porn!!

Mommy limit your Google usage?? Again?? HAHAHA

Seeing as you're too dumb to find it, here it is:

""By 1926, flagging sales of the Model T finally convinced Henry to make a new model. He pursued the project with a great deal of technical expertise in design of the engine, chassis, and other mechanical necessities, while leaving the body design to his son. Edsel also managed to prevail over his father's initial objections in the inclusion of a sliding-shift transmission.

The result was the successful Ford Model A, introduced in December 1927 and produced through 1931, with a total output of more than 4 million. Subsequently, the Ford company adopted an annual model change system similar to that recently pioneered by its competitor General Motors (and still in use by automakers today). Not until the 1930s did Ford overcome his objection to finance companies, and the Ford-owned Universal Credit Corporation became a major car-financing operation.""

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Ford

As I said, the Model T begat the Model A!!

----------

You lose again!! But you've been losing since Mommy dropped you on your pointed head 70 years ago and yo saw all the shining electrons spin!!

NEXT!!

So, as I said, The Model T begat the Model A." And you're an idiot!!

It was the idea of drones flying over our heads while we're sipping our coffee in an outdoor cafe and hoping a "suspected terrorist" wasn't right sitting beside us.

Drones carrying deadly arsenals simply don't belong in the skies above American soil - especially when we have an administration who unashamedly wants to silence his opposition and half the population.

Holder could never quite get that as a legitimate concern.

Charles Krauthammer:

Who has the authority to decide life and death targeting?

In war, the ultimate authority is always the commander in chief and those in the lawful chain of command to whom he has delegated such authority.

This looks troubling. Obama sitting alone in the Oval Office deciding what individuals to kill. But how is that different from Lyndon Johnson sitting in his office choosing bombing targets in North Vietnam?

Moreover, we firebombed entire cities in World War II. Who chose? Commanders under the ultimate authority of the president. No judicial review, no outside legislative committee, no secret court, no authority above the president.

OK, you say. But today’s war is entirely different: no front line, no end in sight.

So what? It’s the jihadists who decided to make the world a battlefield and to wage war in perpetuity. Until they abandon the field, what choice do we have but to carry the fight to them?

We have our principles and precedents for lawful warmaking, and a growing body of case law for the more vexing complexities of the present war — for example, the treatment of suspected terrorists apprehended on U.S. soil. The courts having granted them varying degrees of habeas corpus protection, it is obvious that termination by drone is forbidden — unless Congress and the courts decide otherwise, which, short of a Taliban invasion from New Brunswick, is inconceivable.

Now, for those who believe that the war on terror is not war but law enforcement,(a) I concede that they will find the foregoing analysis to be useless and (b) I assert that they are living on a different and distant planet.

In spite of your stupidity, FDR is ranked in the TOP 5 of any polls on the Greatest Presidents.

While Bush is rated the very worst.

Figures you'd get it bass ackwards, being the bi-polar fool that you are!!

You even deny that Bush is a broken man, an alcoholic hiding out in Dallas, ashamed of having been the worst President in American History.

That's how sick you are, Waxturd puppet!!

A police chief hired to rebuild a tiny Tennessee department dismantled by scandal is using a lie-detector test to keep racists off his force.

Coopertown Police Chief Shane Sullivan took over the department in November, becoming the 11th chief in as many years. He was hired on the heels of a series of police scandals that for a few months left Coopertown with no police at all. Years before that, a mayor was voted out of office after the local prosecutor accused him of racism and running a notorious speed trap.

Law enforcement experts say Sullivan's polygraph approach is unusual, though some departments use the devices for other purposes during the application process. Others try to root out bias in other ways. One polygraph expert warned that lie detectors can't accurately predict racism for reasons that include people's inability to recognize their own racism.

Sullivan said he doubts racists will even apply for the force if they know about the tests.

"I think the polygraph will definitely keep these people from applying," the 39-year-old chief said.

And he believes the policy is working, because he says it's already discouraged some applicants. "I've told a couple of ones about the polygraph who have not called me back."

WASHINGTON — Weeks after he was first arrested in Turkey, a son-in-law of Osama bin Laden who once served as a spokesman for Al Qaeda will appear in a New York courtroom on Friday to face terrorism charges that could result in life imprisonment

The arrest of Mr. Abu Ghaith was the rare occasion in which a Qaeda operative was detained overseas rather than killed. The Obama administration has expanded the use of targeted killing operations in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere, asserting that they are justified when there is no possibility of capture.

Spokesmen for the C.I.A. and the White House declined to comment.

Three terrorism defendants, who were extradited from Britain in October, are already facing trial in Manhattan.

They include Abu Hamza al-Masri, the fiery Islamic preacher who has been charged with conspiring in a 1998 kidnapping of American and other tourists in Yemen and in trying to help establish a terrorist training camp in Oregon, and Adel Abdul Bary, charged with conspiring in the 1998 bombings of two United States Embassies in East Africa. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Paul's filibuster ostensibly dealt only with a very remote hypothetical contingency: targeted killings on American soil of Americans who present no imminent threat to national security. Paul insisted that all the harder questions be taken off the table. He had (he said) no issue with a targeted killing on American soil of an American who did present an imminent threat. He avoided the issue of the targeted killings of Americans outside the United States - i.e., the actual real-world problem at hand.

Instead, Paul invoked a nightmare out of a dystopian future: an evil future president shooting a missile at an American having coffee in a neighborhood cafe, merely on suspicion, without any due process of law.

I think we can all agree that such a case would be pretty deplorable. It is also far-fetched.

The question raised by Paul has the form of one of a dorm-room brain-teaser: "Well, would you be justified in stealing the loaf of broad if your children were starving and if there were no jobs even for the most diligent worker and if no social services or charity existed to help you out?"

The true answer to Paul's question was delivered by Rep. Mike Rogers in Politico this morning:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan called the day’s discussion in the Senate “irresponsible.”

“It would be unconstitutional for the U.S. military or intelligence services to conduct lethal counterterrorism operations in the United States against U.S. citizens,” Rogers said.“I would never allow such operations to occur on my watch."

So if Paul's question is no question at all, why pose it at such considerable length?

The answer is that Paul emerges from a milieu in which far-fetched scenarios don't seem far-fetched at all. Paul specifically mentioned the possibility of a democratically elected Adolph Hitler like figure coming to power in the United States. Looming federal tyranny - against which the only protection is an armed citizenry - is a staple item in the Rand Paul inventory of urgent concerns.

Most Republican senators don't share this nightmarish vision of their country, thank goodness. But they do answer to an activist base that shares a nightmarish vision of President Obama. Rand Paul stipulated that he did not intend his remarks about a Hitler-like president to apply to the present president. But he must have a pretty fair idea of what his core constituency hears when he talks about looming tyranny - and so of course must the Republican senators who joined him at the rostrum.

They saw Rand Paul's Twitter following jump. Perhaps they sensed a great fundraising bonanza at hand. Where Rand Paul led, other Republicans followed: some out of conviction, some out of opportunism, and some out of fear.

Since 2008, the party has executed a huge about-face on issues of executive power and national security. Yesterday marked an important pivot in that complex maneuver. I worry it won't be the last.
