If so that would be the only thing adult about the loser. I still visualize these ignoramuses lined up in front of the computers there at "Shady Pines" (where their black nurses aids can laugh at them behind their backs)and furiously pounding the keyboards with their dent heads and oozing drool. They don't even notice that they're getting higher up their monitors since they thought the "up to 300 lbs" on their depends referred to load limit not size.

Speaking of idiots, are the Okie Congressmen all demanding that disaster relief for THEM, not NY/NJ, cannot be sent until it's been offset by spending cuts elsewhere? Oh, and did you see the Weeper of the House crying because Moore was in Cole's neighborhood...guess he never went to Xenia sober, huh?

The ever-growing movement to repeal the very controversial Monsanto Protection Act has garnered the support of both the Tea Party and the green movement, thereby breeding strange bedfellows. The Monsanto Protection Act “allows Monsanto and other companies to continue selling genetically engineered seeds, even if a court has blocked them from doing so”.
In recent months, federal courts have ruled against the Department of Agriculture, who approved the sale of genetically engineered seeds, stating that the agency acted hastily in their approval, without giving careful consideration to the seeds’“potential harm“.
In response to these rulings, the seed industry lobby fought back and was successful in attaching the Monsanto Protection Act as a resolution to the spending bill signed into law in March. Sen. John Tester (D-Mont.) took note of the rider and spoke out against it on the Senate floor. Unfortunately, his voice fell on a typically empty floor, resulting in Tester’s failure to garner enough votes to block the passage of the rider. This bill then was signed by Obama bin Lying...

FBI kills Florida man with suspected ties to Boston bomb suspect: NBC
MIAMI (Reuters)- An FBI agent shot and killed a Florida man with suspected links to the Boston Marathon bombings early on Wednesday, NBC News reported.
NBC said the suspect was being questioned and was originally cooperative, but was fatally shot after attacking the agent.
The Orlando Sentinel said a friend had identified the dead man as 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev of Orlando. The newspaper quoted the friend, Khusn Taramiv, as saying Todashev was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev because both were mixed martial-arts fighters.

So please explain how Clinton would know if a design approved by the previous administration would or wouldn't work. That's total bullshit! Our armed forces weren't even worried about IEDs until Bush decided to invade Iraq for no fucking reason at all &, if it took a 5yr plan to get them designed approved, & shipped, why did they correct the situation as soon as they found out that was the troops #1 cause of death? It sure didn't take 1yr let alone 5yrs. That's the reason you people on the right made a big deal about Clinton getting head. You couldn't find a flaw in his ideological strategic plan. You know like I know, Bush should've never been president & was completely incompetent his entire 8yrs in office, & the country has yet to recover from his failures!
Like I said, you should not engage in any discussion on a topic you are completely ignorant of.

You would have to know the working definition for the word "threat" when it is used in DoD procurement programs, you fucking moron.

I'll give the first grade class an example. Try to follow this. Let me know if this is too complicated for you:

If there exists a technology that can penetrate static armor less than a quarter inch thick, and it is possible for this technology to be possed by a potential or active enemy of the United States, then this constitutes a threat.

And, now, for the second grade class:
The person responsible for informing the authority that approves the Five Year Defense Plan (that being Congress and the President) of this "threat" is the Secretary of Defense.

Did I go too fast for you?

Only if one assumes that global temperature changes are caused by human activity instead of the level of solar activity.

The larger point is that the recent temperature changes are negligible compared to changes over the history of the earth.

'Glen Greenwald's all over the issue of press freedoms and the current Administration:

"The New York Times Editorial page today says the Obama administration is "threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news" ( http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/22/opinion/ano... ).

James Goodale, the New York Times' general counsel during the paper's fights with the Nixon administration, writes in the NYT today that "President Obama will surely pass President Richard Nixon as the worst president ever on issues of ... press freedom" and that "President Obama wants to criminalize the reporting of national security information" ( http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2013/05/... ).' I'm wondering where Glenn Greenwald and James Rosen are really trying to go with this? Like the IRS case that involved only two overly ambitious employees trying to be more efficient in processing 501(c)(4) status requests, the AP and Fox reporter case were isolated incidents of a FBI agent legally attaining a search warrant from a liberal U S Magistrate Judge Alan Kay(He is notable because he has heard several habeas corpus petitions submitted on behalf of captives held in extrajudicial detention in the United States's Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.[2][3][4][5][6] Kay was the judge authorized to rule on issues arising from the "protective order" that set out the procedures the captives' attorneys had to follow. www.wikipedia.org (See Alan Kay's ruling on Salim Muhood Adem v. George W. Bush) If Greenwald and Rosen are attacking the Obama Administration in hopes that it raises awareness that the Patriot and Espionage Acts need serious reform because it grants the President too broad, over-reaching powers without Congressional oversight to protect highly sensitive ,national security secrets then I'm all for calling on the Congress to hold hearings on amending or repeal of the Patriot and Espionage Acts. However, neither Greenwald or Rosen ever mention Congress ' responsibility for protecting our Constitutional privacy rights and vigilance on national security . "the affidavit says that the FBI had exhausted all alternatives to a search warrant for collecting the desired evidence, except for asking Mr. Rosen to voluntarily produce his own email.

“Because of the Reporter’s own potential criminal liability in this matter, we believe that requesting the voluntary production of the materials from Reporter would be futile and would pose a substantial threat to the integrity of the investigation and of the evidence we seek to obtain by the warrant.”

The warrant application was approved and signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan Kay on May 28, 2010. It was sealed until November 7, 2011 but went unnoticed until the Washington Post reported on it late yesterday. " Check this out: http://blogs.fas.org/secrecy/ I'm wondering why this went 'unnoticed' by the national press until now?

Red-faced Republicans, circling and preparing to pounce on a second-term Democratic president they loathe, do not respect, and certainly do not fear. Sound familiar? Perhaps reminiscent of Bill Clinton’s second term, after the Monica Lewinsky story broke? During that time, Republicans became so consumed by their hatred of Clinton and their conviction that this event would bring him down that they convinced themselves the rest of the country was just as outraged by his behavior as they were. By the way, what was Clinton’s lowest Gallup job-approval rating in his second term, throughout the travails of investigations and impeachment? It was 53 percent. The conservative echo machine had worked itself into such a frenzy, the GOP didn’t realize that the outrage was largely confined to the ranks of those who never voted for Clinton anyway.
These days, the country is even more polarized, and the conservative echo chamber is louder than ever before. Many conservatives made it all the way to Election Day last November unaware that their White House nominee was falling short. How could Mitt Romney possibly lose when everyone they knew was voting for him? Except that he did lose, and it wasn’t even a very close race. Five other post-World War II presidential elections had closer outcomes.
The simple fact is that although the Republican sharks are circling, at least so far, there isn’t a trace of blood in the water. A new CNN/ORC survey of 923 Americans this past Friday and Saturday, May 17-18, pegged Obama’s job-approval rating at 53 percent, up a statistically insignificant 2 points since their last poll, April 5-7, which was taken before the Benghazi, IRS, and AP-wiretap stories came to dominate the news and congressional hearing rooms. His disapproval rating was down 2 points since that last survey.
In Gallup’s tracking poll, Obama’s average job-approval rating so far this year is 50 percent. For this past week, May 13-19, his average was 49 percent, the same as the week before. The most recent three-day moving average, through Sunday, May 19, was also 49 percent. Over the past two weeks, even as these three stories/scandals have dominated the news, they have had precisely zero effect on the president’s job-approval numbers. His ratings are still bouncing around in the same narrow range they have been for weeks.

FOX is no more effective then it was before the election. but when there's only 3 million people watching the right wing propaganda machine what can you expect.
Yup. You do read too much of your own propaganda.
The story that broke about Bill Clinton was him using the office of president to obstruct justice in a civil case in Arkansas, you ignorant dupe.

Has it dawned on you yet that your second favorite president was a serial rapist, and your favorite president is a Marxist communist who allied himself with the Islamist terrorists merely because they were the enemy of the United States?

Yup. You should be prevented from owning a firearm. You are obviously mentally unstable and delusional.
