Brazilians are now rioting in the streets over rising costs and inflation.

Apparently, theirs was one of the most stable economies in the world last year.

Taliban Talks Could Depend on Detainees

These five prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, could be the key to whether the negotiations the United States has long sought with the Taliban are a success, or even take place. A Taliban spokesman in Qatar said Thursday that exchanging them for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, an American prisoner of war who has been held by militants since 2009, would be a way to “build bridges of confidence” to start broader peace talks.

The Heat Delivers a Moment to Remember

The jump shot from LeBron James went into the net with 27.9 seconds left and, as soon as it did, he pumped his fist with a winner's look, a champion's look, as the noise you'd only heard once before shook AmericanAirlines Arena.

San Antonio's season was finally fading, and the Heat's star was rising, again, in this 95-88 win in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

They won with LeBron scoring 37 points. They won with Dwyane Wade answering questions with 23 points. They won with Shane Battier making six 3-point shots — as many shots as he'd made in the previous six Finals games.

They won against a San Antonio team full of deserving Hall of Famers, who kept matching the Heat shot for shot Thursday night, moment for moment, until LeBron's jumper gave a four-point cushion.

They won.

<quoted text>Answer the question sonic--who else were they listening to besides O'bama? There were moslems involved. Calypso Louie comes to mind. He was supplying security with his moslem thugs to O'bama. Munir Muhammad was one of the Nation. Then you had all the Islamist heads in Chicago, O'bama was connected to them also. Mo Bro Hood. So exactly who were they listening to? Rev Wright? The only people the Bush administration was listening to were those connected to terrorists-this could be a break through on the O'bama-so who else?
i wonder how many of these folks were scary muslims?

Russ Tice, NSA insider states that the phones of judges, generals, high ranking officials were wiretapped by the NSA, which gives the NSA ability to blackmail such judges and officials

http://beforeitsnews.com/obama-birthplace-con...

no muslims. probably just the folks who didn't bow down to the Bush regime.

and that's not counting the non-muslim journalists who had their phones tapped.

Thanks to your Republicans, Galt.
The US corporate tax rate is the highest in the world. Reduce the rate or suffer the consequences.

By the way, what do you think would happen if you decided to tax US corporations on foreign-made profits?

Call me naive, but I don't understand how the entire civilized world is unable to collectively stop the atrocities in Syria.
And why they were unable to do the same in Rwanda and Darfur.
Isn't there enough military power collectively to put a quick and swift end to this kind of suffering?
What exactly is the purpose of the UN besides wringing their hands?
Are you saying you are in favor of the United States to get involved in a civil war in Syria? There is no such thing as a quick end to suffering; what would you suggest? Bombing them to smithereens? There are over a half million refugees in Lebanon from Syria; let the other Arab nations feed them. Russia, Iran and China are backing the President. Let them figure it out.

<quoted text>Food assistance. Here's a story for you. At 7 AM this morning there are blocks of blacks lining up to get food assistance that they supposedly lost in the flood, mind you they don't have to show any proof that they were flooded. Now do you think they are working? they will be standing in line all day. Last time there was a flood, there were people who didn't even live in the area that was flooded, some lived at high up as the 20th floor and yet others had no food in their house at the time. It is a disgrace what these people do. This is O'bama Nation-we deserve it.

Editorial: Good riddance to hate-spewing GOP county boss
It took a while, but Republican U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis of Illinois finally got it. When your political friends spew hate, you had better call it for what it is.
On Tuesday night a Davis supporter, Montgomery County Republican Party Chairman Jim Allen, fired off an astonishingly ugly email to a Web news editor about Erika Harold, the former Miss America who plans to run against Davis next year in the GOP primary in the 13th Congressional District.
....On Thursday, as the email got more attention around and outside Illinois, local and national Republican leaders slowly came to realize they had a problem. Allen resigned his local party post on Thursday afternoon, around the same time Illinois Republican Party Chairman Jack Dorgan and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called for him to do so, almost a day and a half after the email surfaced.
Davis amped up his response to reporters Thursday, calling for Allen to step down and describing the comments as "inane and asinine" and "appalling and demeaning."
There's a longer list of adjectives for Allen's remarks, but we'll leave it at that.
If the Illinois GOP doesn't recognize the self-inflicted damage caused by partisans who disparage anyone who doesn't look or act like a traditional Republican, well, party officials won't have to scratch their heads as to why they keep losing elections.

Did he resign?
