One of the most liberal teachers I worked with said, "If it makes sense, you won't find it in the public school system."

He also said, "If you care, you won't last." He said it to me personally.

You just want to believe I'm lying. But you'll believe anything if it's coming from another liberal.

Why is that?

A second US crisis
If the months of April-May, with a great deal of media hype, seem to agree with the US-UK-Japanese method of monetary easing (to put it mildly) against the Euroland method of reasoned austerity, for several weeks now the champions of all-finance have had a little more difficulty in claiming victory. The IMF, terrified by the global impact of the economic slowdown in Europe, doesn’t know what else to come up with to force Europeans to continue spending and make deficits explode again: even empty boutique World must continue to give the impression that it’s still in business, and Europe isn’t playing the game.But the toxic effects of central bank operations in Japan, the United States and the United Kingdom now demolish the argument (or rather propaganda) touting the success of the “other method”, supposed to allow recovery in Japan, the US and the United Kingdom (incidentally, the latter has never even been mentioned).

The currently developing second crisis could have been avoided if the world had taken note that the United States, structurally incapable of reforming itself, was unable to implement other methods than those which had led to the 2008 crisis. Like the irresponsible “too big to fail” banks, the “systemically” irresponsible countries should have been placed under supervision from 2009 as suggested from the GEAB n° 28 (October 2008). Unfortunately the institutions of global governance have proved to be completely ineffective and powerless in managing the crisis. Only regional good sense has been able to put it in place; the international arena producing nothing, everyone began to settle their problems in their part of the world.

The other crucial reform advocated (11) since 2009 by the LEAP/E2020 team focused on taking a completely new look at the international monetary system. In 40 years of US trade imbalances and the volatility of its currency, the dollar as the pillar of the international monetary system has been the carrier of all the United States’ colds to the rest of the world, and this destabilising pillar is now at the heart of the global problem because the United States is no longer suffering from a cold but bubonic plague.

Absent having reformed the international monetary system in 2009, a second crisis is coming. With it comes a new window of opportunity to reform the international monetary system at the G20 in September (12) and one almost hopes that the shock happens by then to force an agreement on this subject, otherwise the summit risks taking place too soon to gain everyone’s support.

That's what makes this president seem more like a usurper. To some of us anyway. He may have been born in Hawaii but his roots are not anything similar to any other president in our nation's history.
His middle name is even different than any other president's. William "Hussein" Clinton would have raised some eyebrows too.
lol! Ah! Fear of the unfamiliar.....I'm sure you'd prefer something more familiar... like Hitler.

<quoted text> We have tips that you associate with 'questionable groups' too , but only in states like Russia that doesn't have a Bill of Rights' would "a right of association and free speech" be considered to be 'radicalizing' an individual. In fact, the Russians did not tell the F.B.I much of anything useful in the investigation of the Tsarnaev brothers--the F.B.I. found out on their own --the Russians asked the F.B.I. for help, it wasn't the other way around like you pretend.
Let's see now...
The Russians notice the muslim terrorist from the USA visiting known terrorists and they tell the FBI. Then, this terrorist enters the USA again after the Russians informed the FBI about his terrorist associations in Russia, and the FBI, NSA, DHS, IRS, and every other government agency was too busy spying on the TEA Party and Congress and Journalists to investigate this terrorist and spy on him.

Did I get that right?

By the way, who is the enemy Janet Napolitano is preparing to fight a large-scale war against? Would it be the same people the government is spying on?

Only idiots like yourself care about stuff like this. No offense.

Wanted: One pasty old white guy, preferably born in the Midwest, Christian, with name like Smith or Bush to be president, must like clearing brush, long walks and sunsets on the beach, apply at GOP headquarters.

No son. You claim to back up your position.

I have no problems with that.

But you just don't follow through.

So based on your word versus the real world, I'll take the real world.

He missed his calling. He would have been a great actor. He and Michelle would have been fit right in with Tinsel Town's facade and become Hollyweird's sweethearts. Sort of like now.
He is a great actor. He acts like he is president. You have to admit he's one of the best actors ever, considering the difference between reality and what Obama pretends to be.

Seeing how you are already brain dead, Boner, it looks like you have a jump on things.

Not to worry though! Obamacare will make sure many good paying full time jobs will be turned into part time jobs. You Democrats are good at having a records for sustained high unemployment.

You must be proud!

I know! Raise taxes! That will stimulate the economy, right retard?

The Bush administration looking into two large organizations is nothing to even sneeze at.

Maybe you should look into who Clinton went after. O'Reilly alone was audited 3 times under Clinton.

Even Clinton's targeting pales in comparison to the number of individuals and small groups, not to mention the larger ones, who were not only denied tax exemption under the law but were grilled gestapo-style by the FBI wanting names and addresses of their associates, what they said in their prayers and what material they read.

We're not in Kansas anymore, Tenzing. Time you figured that out.

Of course, you don't get it.
The AP was targeted because it had received classified information from someone divulging things they shouldn't. They were looking for info on the leaker.
The black flag is not the symbol of just Al Qaeda & terrorism. The Libyan freedom group used that same flag. This probably will be a shock but Libya was just starting to recover from a civil war. It was dangerous place.
That black flag is a symbol for every Wahhabist terrorists, you moron. It represents world domination by Wahhabism, you dolt.
And, idiot, you need to educate yourself on Wahhabism. Wahhabism and freedom are diametrically opposed.
It is always a dangerous place any place where the Wahhabist terrorists are operating.
Perhaps you can explain to us why we have Wahhabist terrorists in the White House every day, especially since they openly promote being at war with the United States.
... or, was that information not in your last indoctrination session?

So, since the government of Egypt says openly they are at war with the United States, why are we giving them hundreds of billions of dollars worth of arms?

<quoted text>Put the President's popular ratings drop back into context with the even steeper decline in popularity of Congress now at a historically low 7% approval rating. Then, you can think about why Americans don't like the direction that the government has been heading in its quest to go nowhere but to be re-elected to public office and leave real governing management to Big Business and their lobbyists.
Obama is a puppet of Goldman Sachs.

Obama hates managing, much preferring grandstanding, so the arrangement is mutually beneficial.

What's your point?
