$85 billion a month from the fed will do that, the crash is coming, however.
It seems inevitable the other shoe is going to drop. It sometimes seems we're living on borrowed time. Hope I'm wrong. Never wanted to be more wrong. Even though hope springs eternal and even though atrocities have been a part of the human experience since the beginning of civilization, it seems humanity started spiraling downhill in just the past seven decades.

I watched a documentary about the thousands and thousands of rapes by Russians during the German occupation at the end of WWII - ages 8 to 80 - and even by Americans during the French occupation, although not as bad, still bad enough. Very depressing.

The A-bombs were dropped on Japan and fire bombs dropped in Germany. The Korean War then followed and right on its heels the Vietnam War and not long after that the beginning of terrorism.

Seems there's more suffering and wars and killings going on in the world today at the same time than at any other time in history.

The possibility of an impending financial crisis is simply a reality on top of the other growing tensions.

Almost seems like a pressure cooker. Something's bound to give sooner or later. Just hope and pray it's not as bad as it seems sometimes.

Good thing this world isn't all there is. And we can still hope for the best possible outcome.

But now it's time for me to go to bed. Night.

Does it matter if Saddam was an "eminent" threat or an "imminent" threat if the point is he was still a threat?
The UN considered him an imminent threat as did Bill Clinton and every prominent democrat before 9/11.
It's why they're weasels. They knew it and still let Bush hang in the wind for political gain.
And to add insult to injury, they lied to you while doing it.
Tony C is just another leosanus twit.

When they can't find points to argue with in your post, they retreat to their fallback position: look for grammar and punctuation faults.

It's good that some of you are finally starting to wake up. GW is all about the weather in the extremes not a string of hot summers. 1 deg in ocean temp rise can mean the difference between a Cat 2 storm and a cat 5 in the gulf. That is EXACTLY what global warming is about, it can also mean 3 ft of snow, 3 ft of water or 3 ft of desert sand in your lil piece of paradise. Records will continue to be broken while you keep driving that big a$$ truck around & shifting dirty manufacturing offshore chasing cheap.

Honesty
¶ Honesty is the recognition of the fact that the unreal is unreal and can have no value, that neither love nor fame nor cash is a value if obtained by fraud—that an attempt to gain a value by deceiving the mind of others is an act of raising your victims to a position higher than reality, where you become a pawn of their blindness, a slave of their non-thinking and their evasions, while their intelligence, their rationality, their perceptiveness become the enemies you have to dread and flee—that you do not care to live as a dependent, least of all a dependent on the stupidity of others, or as a fool whose source of values is the fools he succeeds in fooling—that honesty is not a social duty, not a sacrifice for the sake of others, but the most profoundly selfish virtue man can practice: his refusal to sacrifice the reality of his own existence to the deluded consciousness of others.
http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/honesty.htm...
Integrity
¶ Integrity is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake your consciousness, just as honesty is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake existence—that man is an indivisible entity, an integrated unit of two attributes: of matter and consciousness, and that he may permit no breach between body and mind, between action and thought, between his life and his convictions—that, like a judge impervious to public opinion, he may not sacrifice his convictions to the wishes of others, be it the whole of mankind shouting pleas or threats against him—that courage and confidence are practical necessities, that courage is the practical form of being true to existence, of being true to truth, and confidence is the practical form of being true to one’s own consciousness.
http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/integrity.h...
Rationality
¶ Rationality is man’s basic virtue, the source of all his other virtues. Man’s basic vice, the source of all his evils, is the act of unfocusing his mind, the suspension of his consciousness, which is not blindness, but the refusal to see, not ignorance, but the refusal to know. Irrationality is the rejection of man’s means of survival and, therefore, a commitment to a course of blind destruction; that which is anti-mind, is anti-life.
http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/rationality...

Inalienability

¶ When we say that we hold individual rights to be inalienable, we must mean just that. Inalienable means that which we may not take away, suspend, infringe, restrict or violate—not ever, not at any time, not for any purpose whatsoever.

You cannot say that “man has inalienable rights except in cold weather and on every second Tuesday,” just as you cannot say that “man has inalienable rights except in an emergency,” or “man’s rights cannot be violated except for a good purpose.”

Either man’s rights are inalienable, or they are not. You cannot say a thing such as “semi-inalienable” and consider yourself either honest or sane. When you begin making conditions, reservations and exceptions, you admit that there is something or someone above man’s rights, who may violate them at his discretion. Who? Why, society—that is, the Collective. For what reason? For the good of the Collective. Who decides when rights should be violated? The Collective. If this is what you believe, move over to the side where you belong and admit that you are a Collectivist.

Humana, Centre Care, Pru-Care, the VA (the list goes on) all provide health care services.

My family belonged to an HMO for years, loved it.

During that time I saw three or four different doctors who were employes of the HMO. Persons with serious illnesses/injuries would be referred to specialists and case workers would keep those doctors on budget.

$15 visits $5 prescription co-pay.

Hey Bozo. If I were you, I'd be more worried about jobs than who is paying vs. getting substandard health care from you socialist wingnuts.

By the end of the year more and more people will be moved to temporary work instead of meaningful full-time jobs, thanks to you and your Obamacare. Say Hi to your son and tell him I said "good luck"! He will need it, thanks to his fathers moronic ideals.

The jobs numbers should look good for a while because now everyone will need to work two jobs, thanks to idiots like you and your oBozocare.

He covered up the deaths of four Americans, one an ambassador, that was perpetrated by a coordinated al Qaeda attack on the anniversary of 9/11 because he announced a few months earlier that he had killed bin Laden and al Qaeda was on the run and it was right before an election.
Personal gain and power came before telling the truth to the American people and closure to the victims' families. This is a coverup that makes watergate look like child's play.
"There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known." Luke 12:2
If he covered up the deaths, how did they manage to get on the news?? Al Qaeda was never proven to be behind the attack.

What do you think was the difference? Where did it come from??

This is pretty simple, Clinton equal Osama equal 9/11 equal Iraq War!!
So in your logical thinking, Reagan made Saddam Hussein! Reagan armed Saddam's regime with WMDs & chemical weapons. The same weapons he turned around & used on his own people. Reagan watched as he killed hundreds of thousands with sering/mustard gas, & did nothing. Why? Because he was our go to guy in the region.
Instead of continuing Reagan's national security policies, Bush sr. was the 1st to stick his nose in business that had nothing to do with nothing. Everything America has done overseas, in the middle east was done to support Americas greed for oil, & you dummies fall for it every time.
Saddam Hussein was no threat to anyone beside his bordering neighbors, & by attacking & eliminating him, America lost control of the entire region.
Osama Bin Laden reacted to American influence in the middle east. How we used Saddam, armed him, only to turn around & put an indictment on him for having the weapons. At the same time we were watching Saddam, Bin Laden was watching us.
It amazes me how delusional you people are. A blind man can see the link between the Bush's & The Bin Laden's. Clear as day, but you still point the finger to the other side of the isle. The 2 families had been business partners since the 80's, & even up to the morning of 9/11, the 2 families were tied at the hip.
How does Clinton equal Bin Laden? It makes no sense! Clinton was no more the recipient of Reagan & Bush sr vision of America. They both had to see this coming in said visions also. Clinton isn't even in the picture. During his tenure, Saddam was surely no threat to us. Clinton only sent air strikes at their military bases, & storage facilities, because Saddam threatened Isreal.
Where do you get your logic & facts?

How to Be a Good Neocon When It Comes to Syria

....real neocons, it seems, do not get squishy when the question is US troops on Syrian soil. After Obama's press conference, a publicist for the American Center for Democracy shot out a press release touting the group's director, Rachel Ehrenfeld, and her proposals for action in Syria. She has three simple steps for the United States: bypass the United Nations and impose a no-fly zone in Syria; stop giving arms to rebels associated with Al Qaeda; and deploy US troops within Syria to secure chemical-weapons facilities. Given that Syria probably has scores, if not hundreds, of chemical-weapons sites, such a force would entail tens of thousands of US troops, perhaps hundreds of thousands. And these soldiers would likely have to fight their way to these sites.(No cake-walking here.)

Her proposal would entail invading Syria with a massive force of US troops. But Ehrenfeld's position is not that surprising, considering the board members and advisers for her American Center for Democracy. They include Richard Perle, one of the most hawkish neocons, who led the cheerleading for the invasion of Iraq, and former CIA chief R. James Woolsey, who after 9/11 promoted the neoconnish conspiracy theory that Saddam Hussein was the secret puppet master controlling Al Qaeda. On the ACD's list of advisers are retired Lt. General Thomas McInerney and retired Maj. General Paul Vallely, who were each over-the-top supporters of the Iraq War on Fox News.

Penis scientist Rush Limbaugh is reportedly upset with executives at his flagship station WABC and its parent company, Cumulus. He's so mad, in fact, that's he's reportedly threatening to leave the company. Why? Because Lew Dickey, Cumulus's CEO, is (probably correctly) blaming Limbaugh's “slut” comments last year for declining ad revenue at the company

Several major advertisers dropped support for Limbaugh after the “slut” incident, but Limbaugh and a source who spoke with the Daily News said the show's earnings were “very minimally impacted in the short term.”

Politico, however, notes that Dicky, on an August 2012 earnings call. said Cumulus's top three stations lost $5.5 million. Some of those losses, Dickey said, were because of the boycotts agains Limbaugh. In a March 2013 earnings call, Dickey said the company was still suffering because of the comments, blaming them for roughly a third of the company's revenue losses.
