You might also think twice about getting in that big a$$ truck again to drive to the local store. Because all of us have contributed into making these events turbo charged with global warming.

This is for Galt; I'll just post the ones most pertinent to rightwingers in relation to fascism:
The 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism:
7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed
to the government's policies or actions.
9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

The Venezuelan ruler has already taken over around a dozen banks and directly controls almost a third of the nation’s banking sector. Millions of acres of farmland have also been seized by the regime and redistributed to build collective farms, resulting in a dramatic decrease in agricultural production which has forced the once relatively prosperous nation to import increasing quantities of food.
http://www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/sout...
Venezuela’s National Guard seized roughly 120 tons of merchandise Thursday from the country’s largest food company.
Gen. Luis Bohorquez Soto said the guard seized more than 91 tons of wheat flower, 12 tons of butter, five tons of rice and more than 5,000 liters of cooking oil among other products.
The operation was part of President Hugo Chavez’s efforts “to protect the Venezuelan family” and avoid the phenomenon of empty shelves at grocery stores, the general said.
http://www.laht.com/article.asp...
Over the last few weeks, a number of large unused tracts of land owned by latifundistas (big landowners) were taken over by the National Guard in order to begin the process of its redistribution to landless peasants — giving land to those who want to work it.
Chavez said:“Those who refuse to abandon their land will be removed by the Venezuelan military, because they have to respect the laws and the government.”

The 14 Defining Characteristics of Liberal Hypocrite Fascists:

7. Obsession with National Security – in terms of protecting radical Islam from being called “terrorists,” the PC Orwellian term,“man-caused disaster” is substituted, and weak-knee Apology Tours are given by a President who invokes his Muslim middle name.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations ban Christian religion and carefully enforce separation, but are eager to kow tow to Sharia law so “they will like us.”

9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put union leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite for unions, like the kinds excused from the harmful economic effects of ObamaCare.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed – By union leaders who push Democrats to promote “Card Check” where secret ballots are no longer allowed so all will be afraid to publicly vote union or NOT.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to patriotic art and religion.(as in “clinging to guns and religion”) It is not uncommon for elitist professors and other academics to not tolerate non-liberal viewpoints on campus. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked unless it promotes promiscuity or denigrates the Christian Faith. i.e. feces and ants crawling all over a statue of the Blessed Mother –that expression of art is protected; publishing anything about Mohammed—banned.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the president and his cabinet ignore the constitution and persecute states who adhere to existing immigration law, while looking the other way at states with “sanctuary cities” who ignore the law. The police are often sued by race baiters and career malcontents. There is talk of a brown shirt nation, where only those who agree with the president are allowed to be armed. Violent criminals are protected from death, while innocent babies are sacrificed for “convenience”. often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability—whether in Chicago or for reasons like Benghazi or Fast and Furious.. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders because accomplishing liberal goals of changing America by redistribution is most important..

14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns by the media lapdogs who are overwhelmingly liberal Democrats.(i.e. manipulating what Romney said about “binders” of women, while ignoring obama’s lies about so many affiliations and scandals and lack of record). Until forced to, they did not acknowledge sham groups like ACORN who were busy committing voter fraud. Liberals are currently issuing ID cards so that even illegal aliens will be able to exercise the rights formerly only granted to US citizens—like voting locally.

Doesn't everyone's weight fluctuate to some degree over one's lifetime? How old are you anyway? You won't have a 20-year-old body in 30 more years. Trust me.

However, my weight is just about right. Ten pounds less probably wouldn't hurt though.

Guess you don't ever eat chips or Big Macs. Otherwise, I'd have to call you a hypocrite.

US tax law does not tax foreign profits unless the profits are returned to the US. Apple is in complete compliance with the law.

Oblamer never stated Benghazi was the result of a terrorist attack in his Rose Garden script,"The days of our lies."
Obama was talking about the anniversary of the original 9/11 in the context of not "tolerating acts of terrorism".

He immediatly sent out Rice to promote the video lie and then perpetrated it himself for two weeks following.

Logic would dictate to any rational person that if he had said Benghazi was a terrorist attack the next day, he would have continued to call it that.

He did not.

You wouldn't be the woman who chose a half of a dead baby rather than letting live a whole, healthy baby with another mother in the King Solomon Bible story;are you?
Actually, I agreed with Romney who continually said the safety net needed to be repaired because there were too many big holes keeping out people who were manipulationg the system.

Obama made the holes even bigger.

<quoted text>Congress approved emergency funding based on faulty information (lies). Twenty five billion slam dunk__they'll be lined up throwing rose petals.
Emergency funding hands all the decision making over to the POTUS and does not employ accrual accounting but cash accounting which does not consider the replacement of equipment and ordinance, reimbursements for the use of state NG and ER units or "future veterans health care and services." The $25 billion lie could easily have a final cost of over three trillion dollars.
That's why some who were initially for the invasion changed their minds after coming out of the ether.
Still requires the approval of Congress. That was the statement I was responding to.

Presidents universally take credit when the economy does well (such as Reagan,) and choose to blame other factors when the economy does poorly (such as Obama).
Any improvement in the economy is IN SPITE of Obama. Here is the evidence:
1. Most new jobs were created in TEXAS.
2. Oil fracking has been successful IN SPITE OF environmentalist wackos.
3. Many of Obama's socialist agenda had been successfully STOP by Conservatives in the House.
Any improvements are in spite of an obstructionist Republican House.
