I have an idea. How about a professional national security person like someone from the FBI or CIA instead of a f*cking nutcase wacko Tea Party idiot.
Would you be talking about the number one gun runner for Mexican drug cartels and the person who rushed the Saudi national detained at the scene of the bombing out of the country before the Boston police could interrogate him? Would you be talking about the person who was just reently busted for illegally wire tapping journalists?
Do you really think anyone would actually believe anything Eric Holder would say?

The world economy is depleting the earth's natural resources, and economists cling to models that make no reference whatsoever to the biophysical basis that underpins the economy. That's why ecological economics is needed, says William Rees in this INET interview.

You are stoopid. Name a leading democrat in congress or anyplace else that spoke out against the action in Iraq. All of them, clinton(s), biden, kerry, hairy reed, pelousi, schumer, etal, agreed that sadamn should go.

<quoted text> When your weak debate skills fail you , you pull the race card. Holder has the Obama Administration's complete confidence. The only reason republicans want Holder to resign is because he's finally rethinking the possibility of sending Wall Street bankers who were responsible for stealing American homes and savings and wrecking the U S economy in 2007-08 in jail.
Riiiiiiiiiiigggghhhhhhhhhttttt ttttttt..........
Like Holder is going to send to prison the people who gave so much money in bribes to Obama, it was only Christopher Dodd in the entire Congress they gave more money to.

The mere idea that you have a GD fit about a salute, an umbrella, or a mispronounced word while supporting a party that sent so many to die just proves what a GD idiot you are.
Barack Obama has done so much for our soldiers & their families that you, your pathetic party, or George W Bush EVER did.
My God, start a war about oil & send soldiers to it without body armor or properly armored vehicles - that is respect for our troops?
What lie? As WE recall the facts of the case:
A) Vallery Plame was head of the CIA's joint task force on WMDs in Iraq, and she was responsible for vetting all intelligence given to the president.

In other news, Michelle Bachmann announced she will not run for re-election.

Seems that ethics investigation is taking a toll on poor little Miss Whackjob!! So like her sister in stupidity, Sarah Palin, she chooses to quit!!

""“And rest assured, this decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign or my former presidential staff," she continued. "It was clearly understood that compliance with all rules and regulations was an absolute necessity for my presidential campaign. And I have no reason to believe that that was not the case."
The tea party favorite left the door open for a return to politics: "There is no future option or opportunity, be it directly in the political arena or otherwise, that I won't be giving serious consideration if it can help save and protect our great nation."

----------

Sure Michelle. Innocent people always drop out because they're innocent!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Allen West, Todd Akin, Joe Walsh, etc.

The Teabaggers are dropping like flies as America rejects their message of anti-Americanism and hatred.

Are you daffy? Eric Holder wasn't 'busted ' for revealing that he authorized a legally attained limited warrant(from a U S federal judge) on looking at a Fox reporters phone records and e-mails. FoxNews has done it before--it has released sensitive national security secrets that have endangered the lives of U S Intelligence and military personnel.

<quoted text>This is an amazing story in itself. I wonder who wrote the template for the survey. He is one teacher that is not a communist in Illinois. He was teaching the Constitution, and it wasn't in Chicago city proper.
It's really come down to us against them. Good for that teacher. Even if we have to resist one person at a time, we cannot allow this kind of gross infringement on our rights in the name of progressive liberalism and/or political correctness. This is the poison infiltrating our schools and affecting young people's minds. Make no mistake, it is quite intentional. It is part of the bigger agenda Obama and his corrupt Chicago radical liberals had hoped to get away with in the goal to fundamentally transform this country during his second term.

The line has been clearly drawn in the sand and we must push back.

Thankfully, even democrats are getting on board - which, to me, is the best thing that's happened to this country in a long time.

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — Dr. Michael Ciampi took a step this spring that many of his fellow physicians would describe as radical.

The family physician stopped accepting all forms of health insurance. In early 2013, Ciampi sent a letter to his patients informing them that he would no longer accept any kind of health coverage, both private and government-sponsored. Given that he was now asking patients to pay for his services out of pocket, he posted his prices on the practice’s website.

The change took effect April 1.

“It’s been almost unanimous that patients have expressed understanding at why I’m doing what I’m doing, although I’ve had many people leave the practice because they want to be covered by insurance, which is understandable,” Ciampi said.

Before the switch, Ciampi had about 2,000 patients. He lost several hundred, he said. Some patients with health coverage, faced with having to seek reimbursement themselves rather than through his office, bristled at the paperwork burden.

But the decision to do away with insurance allows Ciampi to practice medicine the way he sees fit, he said. Insurance companies no longer dictate how much he charges. He can offer discounts to patients struggling with their medical bills. He can make house calls.

“I’m freed up to do what I think is right for the patients,” Ciampi said.“If I’m providing them a service that they value, they can pay me, and we cut the insurance out as the middleman and cut out a lot of the expense.”

Ciampi expects more doctors will follow suit. Some may choose to run “concierge practices” in which patients pay to keep a doctor on retainer, he said.

Gordon Smith, a spokesman for the Maine Medical Association, wasn’t so sure, saying most patients either want to use the insurance they pay for or need to rely on Medicare and Medicaid.

Even with the loss of some patients, Ciampi expects his practice to perform just as well financially, if not better, than before he ditched insurance. The new approach will likely attract new patients who are self-employed, lack insurance or have high-deductible plans, he said, because Ciampi has slashed his prices.

“I’ve been able to cut my prices in half because my overhead will be so much less,” he said.

Before, Ciampi charged $160 for an office visit with an existing patient facing one or more complicated health problems. Now, he charges $75.

Patients with an earache or strep throat can spend $300 at their local hospital emergency room, or promptly get an appointment at his office and pay $50, he said.

Ciampi collects payment at the end of the visit, freeing him of the time and costs associated with sending bills, he said.

That time is crucial to Ciampi. When his patients come to his office, they see him, not a physician’s assistant or a nurse practitioner, he said.

“If more doctors were able to do this, that would be real health care reform,” he said.“That’s when we’d see the cost of medicine truly go down.”
