Margaret Thatcher would be remembered, said David Cameron, for her big political battles in taking on the unions, privatising industry,“unleashing” enterprise,“rescuing” the economy, letting people buy their council homes, winning the Falklands War and helping to win the Cold War.

"Margaret Thatcher took a country that was on its knees and made Britain stand tall again.”

In fact, Margaret Thatcher took over a country with 13% unemployment, overtaken by unions, poisoned by a socialist ideology and left it with 5.8% employment and a thriving economy.

She vehemently argued "the liberal policy wants to make the poor poorer just to prevent the rich from becoming richer."

God bless Margaret Thatcher. She described what Obama and the liberals are doing to this country to a tee.

Of course, the liberals and socialists here would rather have 13% unemployment and a nation in turmoil any day too.

Let's try again:
I'd like to ask all the delusional, gullible, tea-party-led wackadoos who pretend Obama is taking over: how do you feel about the only ACTUAL 'taking over' that has already happened in real life - where Republicans took over entire cities in Michigan, including Detroit? Where they can and have dismissed peoples' votes by dismissing elected officials and appointing new ones?
That's what takeover looks like. I'm sure you're all upset about that, right?
OK, fleabagging, welfare mooching , AIDS spreading, Obamaphone swindler, food stamp fatty, independent Oblamer supporter, tell us how another trillion dollars a year in debt will help us?

The regular folks, not the failed green energy cos. we've given billions to.

Once again in memory of a great lady and world leader.

"The liberal policy would rather the poor be poorer provided the rich were less rich! You will never create the wealth for better social services! And, yes, what a policy! They would rather the poor be poorer provided the rich were less rich!"

To the late Ms. Thatcher, I say, "Hear! Hear!"

Goodnight.

PAMAM (CYD grade) dendrimers functionalized have good and promising applications in the field of coating and inks. Hyperbranched polymer with double bonds terminal group have advantages of low viscosity , high functionality of the double bonds, fast reaction rate, particularly suitable for coating resin, reducing the viscosity of the coating system to improve the fluidity and provide good coating performance of the coating; what’s more, reducing solvent dosage to increase the solids content of coating, reduce the emissions of harmful gases; the higher reactivity based on large number of unsaturated groups to easily form crosslinked film, which can shorten the drying time.
Hyperbranched polyester modified with acrylic acid as end groups through solution method can be used in UV curable coating, named VHBP. After adding VHBP into polyurethane acrylate (PUA), hardness of coating is significantly improved with anaerobic polymerization and smooth surface.

<quoted text>Hmmm, perhaps you can answer these questions for us.
1. You claim that you are married and that it is equal to ours, so why are you trying to get Florida to grant you what you allegedly already have?
2. Now, with my marriage, I can file state and federal taxes, why don't you try that and profess that it is a same sex filing?
3. Also, you also claim to be a Christian, so then why do you hate God and piss on Genesis 2:24-28, marriage is only between man and woman?
4. Why do you piss on Jesus, and claim you are marrying, when Jesus said in Matthews that marriage was only between man and woman?
5. Do you really hate God so much, that you piss on his word in 1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication let every man have his own wife; and let every woman have her own husband?
6. If you gays have no respect for God, no respect for the Bible and no respect for marriage, why would you expect any to have respect for you??????????

<quoted text>I find it amusing that you are threatened.
The Olmec were the first major civilization in Mexico. They lived in the tropical lowlands of south-central Mexico, in the modern-day states of Veracruz and Tabasco.
The Olmec flourished during Mesoamerica's Formative period, dating roughly from as early as 1500 BCE to about 400 BCE. Pre-Olmec cultures had flourished in the area since about 2500 BCE, but by 1600–1500 BCE Early Olmec culture had emerged centered around the San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán site near the coast in southeast Veracruz.[1] They were the first Mesoamerican civilization and laid many of the foundations for the civilizations that followed.
The belief that the African-Olmecs were a Pan-Nubian/West African Sahara civilization is believed by many in Africa and elsewhere. Olmec Helmets are very similar to those worn by the Nubians and West Africans of ancient times. Both are made of a combination of Leather and metal.
MR., IF YOUR HISTORY IS SO RICH, THEN WHY WOULD YOU DENY THAT OF OTHERS. ARE YOU INSECURE?
By the way, I have to go, I could only bring up history as far back as 2500 BC.
Oh GFY

WASHINGTON — Redundant federal programs are leading to billions in waste, congressional auditors say, and the government is slow to adopt reforms to fix the problem.

The White House says President Obama recognizes the problem and will propose eliminating redundant programs in the budget plan he releases Wednesday.

*****

Propose? He's president. Do something. C'mon, grow a pair, Barry. Then again, we all know democrats will never eliminate gov't programs, redundant or not.

One thing is for sure, you leftist fools will continue to blame the "sequestration" and the GOP.

p.s. Have your health care premiums double yet?

The Left Says Your Children Belong To Them

In a 30-second promo for MSNBC’s Lean Forward campaign, Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry advocates that society end the “private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” and instead institute a “collective notion” that kids “are our children,” they belong to the community.

In the MSNBC advertisement, Perry says,“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children: your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children.”

*****

These people are f**king scary.

And those advocating gay marriage did not start their crusade until 1993. Still does not address the original posters point, but you already knew that .. oh ignorant one.
So what does it matter when? The bottom line is that gays and lesbians are citizens and deserve the same rights as every other citizen in this country. What part of equal rights and protections under the law don't you understand?

So to further look into your statement, you believe that gays deserve equal treatment but Mormons do not. Interesting how your thirst for equality only extends to your group of choice.
HEY STUPID! Mainstream Mormons gave up polygamy over one hundred years ago. The breakaway sects that practice it force young and often underage girls to marry older men. That's hardly consensual and is totally irrelevant. If some group wants to practice consensual polygamy then let them bring their case to the courts.
You're an idiot!

So then when Mormons petition for equal rights under marriage for multiple partners you will also support them? Oh wait that's right your zeal for equality only extends to the causes you support. Hypocrite!

<quoted text> I bet you still believe in Santa claus & the Easter bunny! I thought the first rule of being liberal was believe none of what you hear & some of what you see! Maybe not. I might be mistaking that phrase with my own logic. Again, why don't straight kids commit suicide because they've prayed to be gay, but God didn't answer? This is a common story amongst gays, so answer that. Why is gay taboo in almost everywhere in the world? You wouldn't be stupid enuff to believe that the world is wrong & you & the few are right would you? The Bible has nothing to do with it when it doesn't cater to your agenda. You were just on here a week ago arguing that this country was founded on Christian values now the Bible has nothing to do with it. You're talking about rights under marriage laws stupid, not the meaning of what marriage meant, because you know like I know it meant the same damn thing, or was your coveted forefathers marriages just legal contacts to ensure if the husband died , his spouses father got the inheritance? You keep believing think tanks & govt alphabet soup. They all lie to push their agenda. That's what the PR department is for idiot!
Nobody commits suicide because they want to be one sexual orientation or the other you vomitous cretin. Gay teens commit suicide because of the bullying they put up with at the hands of kids who are raised by ignorant pieces of fecal matter like you.
I go with evidence gathered according to scientific protocol by groups of professionals whose objective is to ascertain facts. You on the other hand just pull stuff from your butt.
I have never at any time claimed that this country was based on Christianity and have in fact on numerous occasions cited the Treaty of Tripoli to refute those who have made that claim. You're either a goddamned liar or have the reading comprehension skills of a hamster. So which is it?
At the end of the day ignoramuses like you are becoming increasingly irrelevant.

If it can be demonstrated that such unions are consensual and women have an equal right multiple husbands, sure, why not? You seem to have a problem with the concept of consensual. Forced marriage as practiced by groups like Warren Jeff's group is not consensual and so yes I can reject their claims.
You're an idiot!
