Standing behind others is your party's idea for "leading."

But again, not to worry. It's not like I expected any more!

Did you ever think that with out people there would be no government.
Too true.



Simply substitute the word "Government" for "Machine".

The government was made by our ancestors to serve its creators, not vice versa. We should not be slaves TO it, or rather to those who subvert its original purpose.

<quoted text>I think that women get less time than "some" male perpetrators because in this male dominated society we assume that the younger, teen male was not hurt physically, that he probably was keen on the idea and hadn't been threatened with death if he told, like most male predators do. Our legal system is dominated by males and their "double-standards" that they have inflicted on society. Blame your frustration on them and tell them what you think about how unfair you think it is.
Judges don't always mete out true justice, that's life. Heck, I know of a judge who made the same "hell-hole" comment about a dwarf in our community who is a complete psycho. He claimed, "He won't stand a chance in there against regular sized inmates.", as an excuse for giving the dwarf absolutely no prison time at all and allowed him to continue terrorizing anybody, anytime he wanted. It was infuriating but that's justice in the hands of a liberal judge.
Neither "too pretty" nor "too short" should be an excuse for leniency as far as I'm concerned.
Didn't Lizzie Borden keep twirling her bangs and lifting her dress before the all male jury?

I think the blindfolded maiden of justice is really a dyke.

Who are you going to believe? The CIA, the State Department and the White House or David D. Kirkpatrick and Suliman Ali Zway of the New York Times?
Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama all admitted it was a terrorist attack. The president was just the last one to admit it when the jig about the video was finally up.
Not only do I believe the President should be expected to be aware of what's going on with every department involved in attack on an embassy but it's the President's responsibility to make sure everything is being done to protect those under attack.
This president was more concerned about damage control and protecting his own image after claiming he had al Qaeda on the run. A terrorist atttack on 9/11 with four dead Americans might certainly hurt his chances for reelection.
If only Romney had point blank asked the president to explain why he hadn't been truthful about Benghazi, who exactly gave the stand down order and who told Susan Rice to perpetrate the lie about a video during the debate on foreign policy.
Obama should be forever grateful to Romney for not exposing his coverup right then and there. By keeping the gloves on during a crucial moment, Romney essentially handed the election over to Obama on a silver platter.
Well I've been off line for a couple of days switching to cable internet but I'm back and playing catch up which will be easier since I've also retired after almost a half a century in the work force.
Okay Carol, who am I going to believe? I'm going to believe those who actually interviewed people on location in Libya. The consensus of those who actually witnessed the attacks was that the anti Islamic video was at the very least an excuse for anti American militants to attack the consulate. One of the consulate's private Libyan guards said masked militants grabbed him and beat him, one of them calling him "an infidel protecting infidels who insulted the prophet." This comes from an AP report.
And yes stupid, the President has had Al Qaeda on the run and has killed more of their top leadership than the previous administration. At any rate there's no evidence that Al Qaeda had anything to do with this attack; it would seem to be a group called Ansar al-Shariah who attacked the Italian consulate in 2006 over a perceived insult to the prophet. Your assertion that the attack would have hurt his re election chances is inane since historically the American people have stood behind the President after attacks on US interests.
Romney did in fact try to suggest that the President was not truthful about Benghazi and Obama let him climb right out on that limb before lopping it off right behind him.

Public education should be controlled at the local level, with minimal interference from State government. Federal involvement in education is a disaster that has driven parents to
private schools.
Parents may be able to educate their children at the elementary level, but few have the resources and knowledge to teach high school mathematics, physics, and chemistry.
Teacher unions do not represent the viewpoint of most teachers.
Try to separate the two.
So, i some schools kids will learn that cavemen rode dinosaurs, the planet is only 10,000 years old, there is no such thing as evolution, the civil war was not about slavery, Slavery was a good thing for black people, and we can pump pollutants into our atmosphere at increasing levels forever & not affect our climate.

Teaching at the elementary levels requires an understanding of child psychology. There are proven methods that are far more successful than popping your kid in front of a computer.

There is nothing wrong with the public school system. The problem lies in the home. Ay kid that applies himself will get a good education.

When guy teachers are caught, they go to prison for life.
When women teachers are caught, they cry, say they're sorry, get counseling and get a slap on the wrist. Or go to minimum security and watch The View for 6 months.

The same reason most doctors are against home treatment of injuries & illnesses through research on the internet.

Dumbass Dave is too stupid to understand that Galt was referring to the overhead costs for filing government insurance claims compared to filing private insurance claims.
Galt is guessing, as usual.

Private insurers have profitability at stake when processing forms. To think that initial forms & subsequent refilings are more than Medicare is ridiculous.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, administrative costs in Medicare are only about 2 percent of operating expenditures. Defenders of the insurance industry estimate administrative costs as 17 percent of revenue.

What changes do you foresee? Please list them. Hopefully president nobama will not start easing the restrictions. Also hopefully if he tries to the congress will thwart his efforts. The president of Iran doe not set policy that is the job of ayatollah ali khameni and the ruling clerics.
Please advice us as to what president nobama did to bring about the change.
Peace

The new president is more moderate & should push the country in that direction.

It would be good to show some sport for this change by easing certain restrictions.

The ruling clerics understand that their control is also subject to public opinion. They have been overthrown in the past.

Obama has formed a unified worldwide sanction program that have brought about this change. That is how sanctions work.
