The Appetite for Intervention

The public doesn’t support involvement in Syria’s conflict, and they never have, but as on so many other issues what the public favors has remarkably little effect on the policy debate. There is arguably less public support for intervention in Syria today than there was a year ago, but intervention has gained far more supporters in Washington over that same period. Whatever the world may be learning, Americans are being reminded that their preferences are a hindrance and an annoyance to a large number of people in Washington dedicated to dragging the U.S. into one conflict after another.

The federal poverty level for a single individual is $11,490, so the individual referred to earn roughly $35-45K.
This statistic is used because that is how the Socialist Democrats determine insurance premiums.
Despite the debate, we will soon learn the size of premium increases and the extent to which people lose coverage.
The political uproar when voters actually are charged the Obamacare penalty-tax will sink the Democrat party.
Not that we aren't already in big financial trouble but this boondoggle is going to collapse the economy for good. As I've said before we are on a train on a end of line track and the democrats are pouring on the coal. Gonna be a hell of a wreck. To bad a lot of innocent people are going to get hurt.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) cautioned against rushing to arm the Syrian opposition forces Sunday over fears that those weapons could end up in the hands of al Qaeda.
"I'm saying that unless we know exactly who they're going to -- at least generally who they're going to, that it can be very counterproductive," King said on CNN's "State of the Union." "Hopefully, we've been looking at this carefully, and we have a better feel now, a better understanding of where the weapons will be going. But until then, I'm very concerned that we could just replace one terrible dictator with a terrible ideological movement which is aimed at our destruction."

A campaign against Griffon vultures is gathering pace in France after it was revealed that the carrion eaters had devoured the body of a 52-year-old woman who fell to her death in the Pyrenees.

Major Didier Pericou of the gendarmerie said the woman had fallen down a 300-metre slope while taking a short cut walking with two friends.

"There were only bones, clothes and shoes left," he told The Times.

"They took 45 to 50 minutes to eat the body."

French farmers are now demanding the right to shoot the protected birds after attacks on sheep and cows.

The birds no longer have their diet of carcasses because European health and safety regulations now force breeders to burn dead animals.

The Pyrenees population of Griffon vultures has apparently been affected by an EC ruling that due to danger of BSE transmission, no dead animals must be left on the fields.

This has critically lowered the food availability of the scavenging birds.

Like other vultures, the Griffon is a scavenger, feeding mostly on carcasses of dead animals which it finds by soaring over open areas, often moving in flocks. The maximum lifespan recorded for a specimen kept in captivity is 41.4 years.

Fear of vultures has been growing in recent years. Le Nouvel Observateur reports of 'mutant vultures', with one woman saying that a group of the birds, whose wingspans can exceed seven feet, hovered near to where her children were sitting.

One farmer, Alain Larralde, reported seeing a group of vultures attack and start eating an adult cow. There have also been alleged sightings of live animals being carried off.

"You can't imagine what it is like to see an animal eaten alive, " Mr. Larralde was reported to have said.

Over the past few months, there have been 42 claims for compensation from farmers who say they have had livestock taken by the birds.

The vultures, which have evolved to eat carrion and not tackle live prey, may have changed their habits due to starvation.

According to a New Scientist report, there have been cases of vultures grabbing the bodies of shot animals before the hunters can reach them.

"We are seeing three-figure vulture flocks over Belgium and Holland. These birds are fanning out across Europe in search of food," Grahame Madge, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds' European bird of prey expert told the Mail.

Environmentalism, political correctness, and over-regulation, this is freakin' hilarious.

Weakness of Obama Kills Five More American Patriots in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP)— Seven U.S. soldiers and a member of the NATO-led coalition were killed on Saturday in one of the deadliest days for Americans and other foreign troops in Afghanistan in recent months, as the Taliban continued attacks as part of their spring offensive.

The renewed violence came as Afghan President Hamid Karzai acknowledged at a news conference that regular payments his government has received from the CIA for more than a decade would continue. Karzai also said that talks on a U.S.-Afghan bilateral security agreement to govern future American military presence in the country had been delayed because of conditions the Afghans were placing on the deal.

The U.S.-led coalition reported that five international troops were killed by a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan, and coalition spokesman Capt. Luca Carniel confirmed that all five were American.

The US should step back and allow Assad and the Islamists to obliterate each other.

Why is this fight among barbarians any of our business?

All eyes will be on the Benghazi hearing on Wednesday, where the Benghazi whistleblowers will detail exactly what happened and how the Obama Administration has bungled both the lead-in to the attack in Libya and the post-attack spin.

Anyone following the Gosnel (Democrat) trial who murdered full term babies by snipping spinal chords after birth?

The corrupt leftwing media (Ministry of Propaganda) is not covering this mass murderer like they do when a mentally ill person kills people with guns.

This Democrat is really sick.

So is the liberal media.

Yes, we know you are. O);bama has been in office five years and with O)Bozocare pending, companies are curtailing hiring.

We will see you whining here when your son gets the fruits of what you support. Of course, being a whiney libtard, you will blame others.

No Surprize, you gave the most damning indictment of the Bush Administration for 9/11 that I've ever heard!'Ron Paul correctly "PREDICTED" the potential for terrorist attacks against the United States as retaliation in the future, ie...911, the day before Clinton's impeachment' If this were really true then George W Bush and Cheney were more stupid and incompetent then i previously believed. IF Bush and Cheney had prior knowledge of 'potential terrorist attacks against the U S i.e. 9/11' from impeccable conservative sources like Ron Paul then why did they not accept it and take immediate precautions to defend against international terrorism when they were in office in January 2001?!?
