Now Putin is saying that Syria not using chemical weapons. I hope President Obama stays out of it completely. Let them kill each other, either way, how could Assad remain in power?
I wish all liberals thought like you. Let the moslems kill the moslems. I am with you and Sarah Palin on the "Let Allah sort them out." Let them kill each other and who ever wins--wins. It is Assad's country after all.

Why not, if the prices are lower?
Only Dumbass dave looks for the highest prices.
Thrift stores are much less expensive and you can actually find some very unique treasures if you're a dedicated bargain hunter - like me.

For example, I tried finding a simple centerpiece for my dining room table in Wal-Mart this past weekend. The vases and flowers were sold separately and would have cost close to $30 total and there was nothing much to choose from.

Went to a great thrift shop and found exactly what I was looking for and it only cost $8.

I love bargains. I live for bargains, actually. That makes nuc crazy, but oh well.

She can never get her "facts" straight. Honestly, stating that the "international community was with Bush" is about the most ignorant statement someone can make.
In 2003, of the 15 member nations of the United Nations Security Council, only three other than the United States supported an invasion of Iraq....Britain, Spain, and Bulgaria. Three!!!
"I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN Charter. From our point of view, from the charter point of view, it (the U.S. invasion of Iraq) was illegal".(2004, Secretary-General of the United Nations.)
Yet, some think Bush was a "genius" and supported by the international community. Geez.
What I don't understand is how these people seem to be tolerant of Assad's use of chemicl weapons against his people while they were appalled when Saddam did the same thing.
As you often say, this is a comedy channel.
lol! These people like to rewrite history to make their case.

Talk about being clueless!

Syria is interesting. These same people who condemn Russia are now it's biggest supporters in the US.

They simply can't make up their minds where they stand from day to day. It's hysterical to watch!

So spending $60 to $100 million on an African vacation when Obama said the sky was falling right before the sequester - that was his idea to begin with - doesn't raise even a teensy weensy red flag?
bushie boy was touring the world the last 4 months of 2008.

The US was falling apart under his watch and he didn't give a damn.

And in 2009, he gave what was left to Obama.

ironic, eh?

And really, Afghanistan? the war your hero GW Bush abandoned (as the chase to get Bin Laden) to invade a country that had nothing to do with 9-11 or terrorism.
If Bush was so smart, how come he didn't invade Wahhbistan?
You really are fullofshit.
How about you go back to where I shoved the truth up your ass and showed you quotes from the Director of OFHEO in 2003 describing how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were keeping fraudulent books to hide the CRA disaster.
It was known as early as 2003 it was a disaster.
How about you look at that 1999 New York Times article that predicts the disaster after Bill Clinton used the White House to coerce the mortgage underwriters.
How about telling us about the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats.

You really aren't too bright are you? According to testimony before the Senate committee, U.S. citizens are not being subjected to "unresonable search and seizures". Papers and effects are not accessed without a warrant and the information being collected under the Fisa Amendments Act does not disclose the identity of a person or their location without a valid search warrant being first obtained.
If you would actually listen to the testimony on Capitol Hill instead of parroting rightwing propaganda, you might actually learn a thing or two.
The general counsel for the intelligence community said the NSA cannot target phone conversations between callers inside the U.S.— even if one of those callers was someone they were targeted for surveillance when outside the country.
"The director of national intelligence’s legal chief, Robert S. Litt, said that if the NSA finds it has accidentally gathered a phone call by a target who had traveled into the U.S. without their knowledge, they have to "purge" that from their system. The same goes for an accidental collection of any conversation because of an error.
Litt said those incidents are then reported to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which "pushes back" and asks how it happened, and what the NSA is doing to fix the problem so it doesn’t happen again."
Obama: "...their phone calls aren’t being listened into; their text messages aren’t being monitored, their emails are not being read by some big brother somewhere."
The only people who should be concerned are those with terrorists ties and radicals with allegiance to a foreign country and expressed anti-American sentiments.
NSA whistleblowers are saying something different.

I really don't care if the NSA wants to data mine everyone's phone numbers if they can narrow down who the bad guys are.

But another NSA whistleblower said all anyone has to do is ask to listen in on anyone's conversation to do so.

It's the fact no one trusts anyone anymore to do the right thing that leaves doubts in a lot of people's minds. Even mine.

The fact is, with the comment "court ordered" on her record, she cannot receive reciprocity from Illinois if whe wanted to practice law in any other state. In short, the Supreme Court of Illinois chose the wording to prevent her from just moving to some other state and start scamming insurance companies there.
The Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois list her status as “voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law.”
It further states that Michelle license is “on court ordered inactive status.”
You can see an actual photograph of the document on this website.
Michelle is on a court-ordered inactive status.
Investigations into why the Supreme Court of Illinois ordered Michelle Obama to be on inactive status lead to an insurance fraud case.
Michelle Obama was scamming insurance companies.
Yet another example of how easily you right wing morons are duped by phony propaganda. The notation "court ordered inactive status" is NOT, as commonly misinterpreted, an indication of any wrongdoing. That terminology was used simply because prior to the end of 1999, the Illinois ARDC rules required "a proceeding in the Court for any voluntary transfer to inactive status.
