Just another example to prove liberals are the stupidest people on this planet:

Just how crucial were experts for Arias defense?

PHOENIX (AP)— As Jodi Arias' trial wraps up this week after four months of testimony, her fate rests in part on the testimony of expert witnesses who have offered up one clinical diagnosis after another for the small-town waitress and aspiring photographer from California to explain why she killed…

The Obama administration needs to do is a simplified, prolonged, all-out public relations blitz. "The White House has a big lift in making Obamacare a success. Here's a good start: What had been a 15-page application form has been shrunk down to three pages. It's a little more complicated for families, though.

The three-page form is for use by single adults with no dependents who do not have health insurance and would like help paying for it. A second, 12-page, six-step form has been released for everybody else who needs coverage and wants to see if they're eligible for subsidies. But although the longer form has 12 pages, many of them include multiple graphics, white space and large lettering—and look nothing like insurance forms of old made gray with lines and lines of tiny type.

Getting that form down to a doable size is an important hurdle, one that can't be overstated. That's because the public is still so uninformed and so misinformed about the law." http://s3.amazonaws.com/dk-production/images/...

RECALL Republican boob Governor Scott Walker--more corruption uncovered. "Wisconsin’s flagship jobs agency has routinely failed to follow state laws, didn’t track loans and awarded money to ineligible projects, a scathing audit released Wednesday found.

Auditors also said employees of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., a quasi-private entity, made a number of questionable and unexplained purchases, including season tickets to UW-Madison football games and iTunes gift cards, and contracted for services without conducting open and competitive selection processes.

The nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau said WEDC, which was launched by Republican Gov. Scott Walker nearly two years ago, needs to overhaul numerous policies and should report back to the Legislature’s audit committee later this year."

With all due respect, the application form is just the tip of the iceberg. The regulations alone make a stack 7 feet high, the reduction in application red tape barely amounts to throwing a pencil off the Titanic.

President Obama’s new “religious tolerance” consultant to the Pentagon, Mikey Weinstein, wants Christian military service members who openly talk about their faith in uniform to be charged with treason, which is a crime punishable by death according to military law.

What?! Mikey’s been hired by President Obama? No way!

Also, wha….? The MRFF is a church/state separation watchdog group, not a group that goes after people who pray. You can pray; you just can’t force others to do it with you, as some commanding officers have done in the past. MRFF isn’t trying to indirectly kill Christians, no matter what they want you to think.

But I was surprised about Mikey getting hired. I figured I would have heard something about it if it had happened.

So I called him up a few minutes ago.

It was a short, frenetic conversation that involved him explaining how certain groups are after him for all sorts of reasons, including his Jewish name and what MRFF fights for… but he told me he was not, in fact, hired by the Pentagon or Obama.

....and what about those towel-head Obama Muslim freak traitors inside the U.S. Military who run around shooting fellow soldiers while screaming "Allah Akbar!"? Will they be tried for treason for forcefully expressing their religious beliefs, too?

If not, they should damned well be.

Philadelphia (CNN)-- Jurors in the murder trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell ended their first day of deliberations, Tuesday without a verdict.

Deliberations will resume Wednesday morning.

Gosnell, 72, is accused of killing babies by using scissors to cut their spinal cords. Authorities allege that some of the infants were born alive and viable during the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy.

Gosnell originally faced first-degree murder charges in the deaths of seven babies and a count of third-degree murder in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41. Mongar died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion.

Judge Jeffrey Minehart threw out three of the seven first-degree murder charges last week.

HOW COME OBAMA HAS NOT CALLED JEFFREY AND TELL HIM HOW HE IS DOING A GREAT JOB KILLING BABIES THAT ARE BORN ALIVE THAT OBAMA SUPPORTS!!!!!HE MAY EVEN CALL HIM TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND DRINK A COLD BEER TO HAVE A CELEBRATION!!!YES OBAMA IS A GREAT LEADER CHRISTIAN MAN!!
FALSE CHRISTIANS

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

2 Timothy 3:5 ESV

Having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

Matthew 7:15 ESV

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

Titus 1:16 ESV

They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.

Matthew 7:21-23 ESV

“Not everyone who says to me,‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me,‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them,‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Hey, man, to be fair, if you're a proctologist, you are already aware that everyone is an asshole - you got one, don't you? Or did they cut it out with the rest of your colon? Otherwise why'd you become a proctologist? Personally, man, if it were up to me, we'd all be gynecologists and then you've already lost half your market.

It's like a breath of fresh air. A Democrat exercising critical thinking.
More could learn from him. This country would be a lot better off.
One more time Carol, who originated these toxic loans? It wasn't Fannie or Freddie, it was unregulated mortgage brokers like Country Wide and Indy Mac and bundled them into mortgage backed securities that were rated AAA by Standard and Poor's and Moody's. Fannie and Freddie were victims of these scam artists as were investment houses and pension funds.
Where's the critical thinking Carol/ It's just the same crap you've been peddling for quite a while.

We knew Palin was a popular governor who took on the corruption in her own party and won.
That alone made her a heck of a lot more qualified than a junior Senator whose rise in politics was already questionable.
Obama won 2 times in the Illinois Senate - the first time by disqualifying his opponents petitions so he ran unopposed. The second time was because Axelrod made sure Obama's opponent's messy divorce was plastered all over the news and, therefore, Obama won again unopposed and didn't even win by a huge vote either time.
He won the Senate by another convenient "sex scandal" resulting in his opponent dropping out.
What a rather unlikely coincidence, huh?
It's not surprising that you're a Sarah Palin fan because both of you are consistently heavy on the hyperbole and light on the facts.
If his opponents in the Illinois Senate race didn't have enough valid signatures well then that's the way it goes. Jack Ryan is responsible for his own sex scandal Carol bringing his wife to sex clubs and pressuring her to engage in sex with others while he watched. Oh those Republican family values again!
