Typical of Jason. Offer a dumb opinion on something you have no actual knowledge of.
Wouldn't be because they had reported great earnings and outlook yesterday??
All these earnings were the 1st. quarter. Long before Moore.
Pretty unsophisticated thinking that a one city incident could influence huge chains like HD and LOW. They'll end up donating as much as they sell, just for the PR.
Every time there is a disaster home improvement stocks increase and this is well documented. The increase in Lowes' and Home Depot stock reflects this.

Lowe's earning report came out today-
"Sales for the quarter decreased 0.5 percent to $13.1 billion from $13.2 billion in the first quarter of 2012, while comparable sales for the quarter decreased 0.7 percent."

<quoted text>President George W. Bush, in an address to a joint session of Congress on September 20, 2001 said, "Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists."
G-d Bless GW BUSH for that. AS we know, many liberals are with the terrorists. Obama and Kerry appear to be calling for 'human rights' of Boko Haram which means???? a jihadi group whose name means “Western Education is a Sin”— that is, a group whose very name embodies hostility for Western civilization.(Of course, it’s not surprising that the Obama administration overlooks Boko Haram’s animus for the West, considering that it was just revealed that “it is Obama administration policy to consider specifically Islamic criticism of the American system of government legitimate.

Don't Hold Your Breath Waiting for Public Opinion to Turn Against Obama
The president has a base of loyalists that won't quit and, at least for now, there's no evidence he was involved in any scandals.
damn it Barack! like Bush, you should leading the way in attacking the opposition!!
or maybe it was Cheney. or Rove. or Rumsfeld.
ok, so maybe Bush wasn't the lead, but i bet he knew what was going on.
ever visit a Bushism site?
Public opinion is already changing - mostly among Democrats. Republicans knew what was going on a long time ago.

You have embarrassed yourself twice today and now going for the third.
I stated- "it is 'pun' just like 'red hairing'."
Note the word 'like' in the sentence. It is also another one of those literally devices called a simile.
Maybe you should stick with your grammar checker.
You're so is 'pun' just like 'red hairing' is NOT a simile, it is a statement of fact as in "Your ignorance is much like Eed's." Your ignorance is like a thundering fart in church would be a simile.

Calling someone a dike might be a metaphor if you were trying to show that they were like a barrier to some type of metaphorical sea, but you weren't.(Katherine Harris might be the ultimate red hairing, BTW.) Now just quit embarrassing yourself and wasting my time by insisting on putting your functional illiteracy on display.

Four Americans have been killed in drone attacks
Your comment lacks any merit.
The date was at the top of the document.
So what, if you don't know the names. Do you know the names of all US citizens?
The claim that drones has killed four Americans is documented in the link.
The link is functional.
We cannot help Progressives if they insist on sounding moronic in their posts.
Al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric, was killed in a drone strike in September 2011 in Yemen. Holder said three other Americans were killed by drones in counterterrorism operations since 2009 but were not targeted. The three are Samir Khan, who was killed in the same drone strike as al-Awlaki; al-Awlaki's 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman, a native of Denver, who also was killed in Yemen two weeks later; and Jude Kenan Mohammed, who was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan.

Who cares?

Anti-gun host finally admits firearm advocates might be onto something
Is British CNN host Piers Morgan finally admitting gun advocates have a point when they say the Second Amendment is to protect citizens from tyrannical government?
Morgan has made headlines for many months as he loudly trumpeted the cause of gun control, even to the detriment of his shows ratings.
Now – after learning of the Obama administration’s involvement in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups and its secret seizure of Associated Press phone records – the CNN host admitted to guest Penn Jillette that perhaps gun advocates were right about creeping tyranny after all:
“I’ve had some of the pro-gun lobbyists on here, saying to me,‘Well, the reason we need to be armed is because of tyranny from our own government,’ and I’ve always laughed at them,” Morgan said.“I said,‘Don’t be ridiculous! Your government won’t turn itself on you....
“But, actually, this is vaguely tyrannical behavior by the American government.” said Piers Morgan
Just "vaguely" tyrannical???

WRONG STUPID! The protection of the President is not the function of the Marines but rather the Secret Service. The Marines are used on occasions such as when a foreign dignitary is being received for ceremonial duties and sometimes that means holding an umbrella to keep the President and his guest dry.
You're an idiot DB!
