Real Dave, "A slip of the tongue is now worse than being draft dodger." God! LOL ! It's a good thing that Aunt Bettie Lou did not tune in to hear President Obama at the W. H. Correspondents Dinner. I could imagine A. B. L.'s shocked horror at President Obama saying,“I look in the mirror and say,‘I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be,’” Obama quipped at one point, reflecting on how he’s aged into a second term. Or; could Aunt Bettie Lou possibly surprise up, get a joke for a change, and go with the flow? Groovy! if she could loosen her girdle a bit. ;-)

George W Bush was presented with a re[port of a bipartisan committee that had been studying the vulnerability of the US to terrorist attack. That action by Clinton/Gore recognized that terrorism could be a threat on US soil.

That report cited airport security as a weak point among other things.

When the committee completed their report & went to present it to the new President in early 2001, Bush REFUSED to see them.

REFUSED.

Instead, Bush appointed is own committee of two to study this. Cheney & his CAIMPAIGN manager. Their first meeting was scheduled for October of 2001.

Now Carol, even a Bush worshiper like you has to wonder about this, right??

What f Bush pad attention. What if they alerted the CIA & FBI. What if airport security caught that guy in Maine. What if this report called more attention to those taking flight lessons.

But to Carol, nothing is Bush's fault.

Actually, I commented on Obama's joke,“I look in the mirror and say,‘I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be,’” on here last night.

I posted, "The joke's on us."

But, no, I didn't watch the correspondent's dinner. First time since I can remember. Just too painful to watch a president making jokes out of all of us.

Syria's chemical weapons manufacturing and main storage facility is located near the small town of al-Safirah which is just miles to S.E. of Aleppo.

Obamacare: Unaffordable Coverage
Healthcare costs keep rising. ACA is an experiment doomed to fail.“At the root of this problem is the private health industry….” Large private insurers, drug giants, and hospital chains are beholden to Wall Street and shareholders.

Insurers profit by denying claims, raising premiums, and requiring higher co-payments and deductibles.

“They also drag down our health system with the costly paperwork and bureaucracy they inflict on doctors, hospitals and patients.”

“By replacing the private insurers with a streamlined single-payer system, we can save over $400 billion squandered annually on wasteful paperwork. That’s enough money to cover all of the uninsured and to eliminate all co-pays and deductibles.”

Gazette editors called his solution “exactly on target. It’s shameful that America is the only modern democracy without a national health system covering everyone.”

“(M)edical care should be a human right for all.”

Obamacare denies it. It requires virtually everyone to have health insurance. Millions unable to afford employer coverage will be ineligible for federal financial aid. On January 1, 2014, fully-certfied health insurance exchanges become operational.

Uninsured middle-income households eligible for subsidized private coverage may use them. Safety-net programs are for low-income households.

According to First Focus president Bruce Lesley, up to 500,000 children may remain uninsured.“The children’s community is disappointed by the administration’s decision to deny access to coverage for children based on a bogus definition of affordability,” he said.

ACA stipulates that coverage can’t cost more than 9.5% of family income. Recipients it considers able to buy insurance are ineligible for subsidies.

Affordability is based on individuals. Family coverage is nearly threefold higher. If employers don’t provide it, recipients are out of luck.

It bears repeating. ACA is a scam. Obama and Congress are beholden to Big Money interests. Washington is corporate occupied territory.

The business of America is business. Every agency is infested with industry officials and lobbyists. They control policy. What they want, they get. Ordinary people are betrayed.

ACA is one of many examples. It made America’s dysfunctional healthcare system worse. It enriches providers. It sacrifices health for greater profits.

It’s unaffordable. It doesn’t protect. It underinsures. It forces millions to choose between life or debt. It reflects irresponsible governance. Obama bears full responsibility.

WHY DID THEY WAIT UNTIL OBAMA IS GONE TO PUT HIS PLAN IN PLACW BS

What part of the economic recovery has you so troubled Carol? Please be specific K?
The only that's troubling me is an MSN article today stating: "The Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the Bank of Japan all printing money and injecting it into the financial systems in various ways and an unprecedented use of stimulus as dangerous, unnecessary (the banking crisis ended four years ago) and increasingly ineffective."

The other thing is MSN pointing out this "sugar rush" is not "really helping the real economy heal its deep wounds" and "we've experienced the weakest postwar recovery on record and "by many measures, things are starting to stall again."

Oh, and also "no matter how good things might look from Wall Street and for your portfolio, the economy is far from healed," might be troubling me a bit.

http://money.msn.com/investing/c_galleryregul...

Maybe you should take a look at it since you're obviously not troubled at all. But it might burst your bubble of denial.

Time to End Western Support for Terrorists in Syria:“Opposition” is Entirely Run by Al Qaeda
NYT: "Nowhere in Rebel-Controlled Syria is There a Secular Fighting Force to Speak Of"
In an astounding admission, the New York Times confirms that the so-called “Syrian opposition” is entirely run by Al Qaeda and literally states:

Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.

From the beginning, it was clear to geopolitical analysts that the conflict in Syria was not “pro-democracy” protesters rising up, but rather the fruition of a well-documented conspiracy between the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia to arm and direct sectarian extremists affiliated with Al Qaeda against the Syrian government.

Image:(Edlib News Network Enn, via Associated Press) Al Qaeda terrorists in Idlib, Syria. It is now admitted by the New York Times that the entire armed so-called “opposition” is comprised entirely of Al Qaeda, meaning the torrent of cash and weapons sent to the “opposition” by the West and its regional allies, were intentionally sent directly to listed terrorists guilty of a multitude of unprecedented atrocities.

This was documented as early as 2007 – a full 4 years before the 2011 “Arab Spring” would begin – by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his New Yorker article titled,“”The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” which stated specifically (emphasis added):

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

For the past two years the US, UK, France, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, and Turkey have sent billions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into Syria along side known-terrorists from Libya, Chechnya, neighboring Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. In the Telegraph’s article titled,“US and Europe in ‘major airlift of arms to Syrian rebels through Zagreb’,” it is reported:

OBAMA supports TERRORIST? mmmmmm THATS WHY THE FBI IGNORED THE WARNINGS FROM RUSSIA ?

specifically, if there is any recovery it is in spite of Obama and has been slowed by Obama who surrounds himself with anti business people.

as financial experts are quick to point out, the economy and the stock market are not the same thing.

“Don’t be fooled into looking at the Dow as your economic barometer,” says the NY Post’s Jonathon M. Trugman.“That’s for the lazy, the amateurs, the armchair partisan economists.”

Indeed, most industry insiders don’t pay much attention to where the Dow closes.

"It is good trivia to talk about on television and the radio," said Joe Gordon managing partner at Gordon Asset Management. "It's meaningless to the average professional."

Still, why is the Dow above 14,000, who benefits, and will it last?

The resolution of the fiscal cliff, the relative temporary stabilization of the Eurozone, and the easing over concerns about Chinese economic growth curve has, for the moment, calmed the stock market.

But experts say the Dow’s recent upward lift is largely the result of pumping by the Federal Reserve and may prove short-lived.
