President Obama's so cool:

During a speech on Thursday in Jerusalem, President Barack Obama handled a heckler by saying that actually the incident had been planned in advance by his team so that he could feel at home.

The president was speaking to an audience of university students when a heckler began to shout from somewhere in the room. Talking Points Memo reported that the heckler was demanding the release of former U.S. Navy Intelligence officer Jonathan Pollard, current jailed for leaking military secrets to the Israeli government.

Obama brushed aside the interruption, saying,“You know, I have to say, we actually arranged for that, because it made me feel at home.”

He added,“You know, I wouldn’t feel comfortable if I didn’t have at least one heckler

So, you admit Ryan's plan will cost seniors more.
That was my point.
Not everyone can put more into their retirement accounts.
You know I find it amazing that an Asian family can come over here and without knowing a soul start a business and be relative well off in just a few years. But some people born here can't pay for their retirement and old age health care after living for 50 years on their own. Assuming they leave home at 18.

I can think of at least 5 families that have done it right here by my house.

Sounded a lot like you.

Those Palestinians who lived within the boundaries of Israel in 1948 left on their own because they were convinced they could get back the whole pie by force. They forfeited any "right."

That's what her opponent; deadbeat dad Joe Walsh said. See where that got him.
Gabby Giffords looks great; she and her husband are a phenomenal couple. I love them.

For those of you who still believe Saddam kept Iran in check...if Saddam had been left alone to develop his own nuclear program, both Iraq AND Iran would have these weapons.

Try and picture that scenario for just a minute.

How stupid is Paul Ryan?
Paul Ryan wants to keep Obama's savings from Medicare & use them to "save" Medicare.
A good deal of Obama's Medicare savings stem from cuts to some providers such as hospitals.
Hospitals said that was OK because Obama was sending them 30 million new paying customers.
Dumbass Ryan just ended that aspect - no 30 million new paying customers..
Paul Ryan is a f*cking moron. Keep him talking & Republicans will keep losing.
Ryan was the reason Romney lost. & he will be the reasons many more Republicans will lose in 2014.
He sounds very stupid, I cannot argue with you. Galt?

Galt has great sympathy for Giffords, but she appears to be a vegetable.

Beyonce made $40 Million in 2012. LOL

What'd you make off Social Security?? BWAHAHAHAHA

She's #32 on Forbes 'Power Women' list!! DUH

More proof that you are an old relic, completely out of touch with America.

Tina Turner?? She's 73 and she gave up her US citizenship to become a Swiss citizen.

At least you could compare Beyonce to an American, dipshit.

But it figures you only know about female singers over 70 who were beaten by their husband!!

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Not true either, because tax increases change economic behavior and do not result in the expected revenue increases.
Increased revenues lower the deficit.

Cutting spending can influence the economy also by sending thousands of government workers to the unemployment lines & food stamp roles & reduce spending in the local community.

So cut s[ending here, add expenses there. So are you advocating not spending cuts?

They didn't forfeit a thing. It would be the same if we kicked the Indians out and didn't let them return.
Nothing will ever be settled without a Palestinian State and the right of return.

So you think there is some mandate that says all new revenues must be spent on additional crap?
My God, get a f*cking brain.
The deficit is the difference between money spent & revenues generated. To reduce the deficit, spending cuts and/or revenue increases lower that deficit.
And really, you don't think that the billions because of Sandy would not have been spent without that extra revenue?
No birdbrain I didn't say that. Learn to comprehend what you read. I didn't say it must be spent but it will be spent because they can't help themselves. Just like when a person gets a raise. Do they put that extra money in the bank to grow wealth and improve their lot in life? No, most likely, they blow it on something. You can decide what.

No, she's not a vegetable at all, just because her speech is slow doesn't mean that at all. I think it's amazing that she survived and recovered as much as she did.
