<quoted text> I guess you didn't notice what happened every time ole Ben shut off the printing presses huh? Heck just about a month ago two minor Fed officials just hinted that it might be time to stop printing. The Dow dropped over 200 points. This economy and stock market is being propped up by plastic money. This house of card will collapse. There is simply to much worthless money out there with more to come.
Everyone knows it. No one knows how to stop it. The GOP wants to try and give it their best shot. Democrats want a "wait and see" approach crossing their fingers.

If only Mitt Romney had had a few thousand more Twitter followers and Facebook friends.
So say Bret Jacobson and Ian Spencer, millennial techies and co-founders of the conservative digital strategy group Red Edge. The high-tech entrepreneurs believe the failed GOP presidential nominee could have defeated President Obama simply with a better showing on social media.
"If you had run a really competent, really aggressive digital campaign, you probably could have won an Electoral College vote,” says Jacobson of the 2012 election.“The difference is roughly 450,000 in a couple swing states and you could more than make up for that difference.”
Bold claims from a dynamic duo now leading the charge for a Republican Party reboot. Jacobson and Spencer say they are convinced that despite previous failed attempts, the party can surpass Democrats' social media machine by the 2016 presidential race.

Lol, have you seen Republicans operating computers?
Look at all Flack's problems and Carol's, most Republicans put the website they are trying to go to into the google search box.
Between that and the hunting and pecking on their keyboards with 2 fingers, it's hysterical.
Expect a lot more virus downloads, should be good for computer repair shops.
And Twitter? They are still searching for Fred and his 8 followers.
Hah, LMAO__fred was retweeted.

Those were some of the dumbest tweets ever.

The bottom line is this: Had the United Nations resolution of 1947 recommending partition and establishment of two separate states for Jews and Palestinians NOT been subverted by force by the Arab world, there would have been no refugee problem in the first place.

The Jewish leaders agreed to this resolution. The Arab nations and Palestinian Authority rejected it.

Look it up. You won't find a source contradicting this anywhere.

No, I’m praising Perry for using Hard Working Americans Tax Dollars Wisely!!
He used federal money, time to cut off that revenue stream, the federal government has been broke for years. Why didn't he cut services and/or raise taxes? Instead he drove the rest of the country deeper into debt. And you praise him for this? Do you people read what you fcking type?

Well... it's all about this college girl who meets this powerful man who employs 40,000 people, and, well, she sort of falls for him - his POWER - you know... and the next thing you know, he's got her spread-eagled across his mahogany desk.. and did I mention he has "lonnnng" index fingers? Anyway, Rebecca, or whatever her name is, is spread-eagled on the desk and he takes the newspaper, rolls it up into a tight knot and... what? It's on the New York Times bestseller list...

Last week, Democratic senators broke their tradition of deference to the Obama White House and publicly pushed back against the president of their own party. Specifically, they went public with demands that the president back off his proposals to slash Social Security and Medicare.

Similarly, the day after one Democratic senator (Ron Wyden) stood with Rand Paul’s filibuster and just three Democratic senators voted against Brennan’s nomination, the Congressional Progressive Caucus released a scathing letter slamming the administration for its civil liberties and drone-war atrocities. This was backed in spirit by a Washington Post op-ed by Obama confidante John Podesta, who almost never dares to criticize the Democratic president.

Anyone else find this interesting?

For all the drama of President Obama's stirring speech Thursday in Jerusalem, the most encouraging thing about it may have been the applause from the audience. "Remarks of President Obama to the People of Israel," the White House called the speech -- and, like President Reagan, Obama went soaring over the heads of officials, elites, and pundits, directly to Israel's citizenry. In that may lie the nub of a second-term approach to Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking that could prove more fruitful than the frustrations of the first.
Obama showed them how it's done, with eloquence, empathy, and persuasion. In a spirit of enduring friendship, he did some truth-telling of a sort that the Israeli public does not always get from its leadership -- and his youthful audience roared its approval at a volume that could be heard loud and clear in Ramallah, Nablus, and Gaza City. Obama was both warm and strong, wise and supportive, reiterating yet again that the United States will take no options off the table on Iran even while he reminded Israelis that they and the Palestinians have no options on the table besides a two-state solution or unending occupation, terrorism, and muted and mounting rage.
The president is right: The status quo is not static

an audience of hand picked naive young college students, sound familiar?

and it wasn't the first time someone had been to Jerusalem claiming to be the Messiah.
