Congressional Budget Office finds the Immigration bill would lower the wages of American workers
by pouring too many foreign workers into the labor market.
Do we actually pay big salaries to the drones at the CBO to state the obvious.?

Plus, the American workers who will see their wages lowered will be primarily black and Hispanic.

Afghanistan, not Iraq, is becoming another Vietnam - an unwinnable war.
The Iraq War ended before Obama took office.
Some people get so confused.
We have already surrender and now Obama wants Peace Talks with the Taliban to make it more embarrassing.

We would be better off exploding what we can't take and leave.

Why Hillary Clinton might not win in 2016
Chuck Todd takes a "Deep Dive" look into how some think Hillary Clinton's legacy won’t protect her and automatically make her a frontrunner if she runs for president in 2016.

If so, goodnight to anyone who's still here.

Peace talks with the Taliban. Might as well kiss a hungry lion on the lips. You're a fool either way.

Obama is constantly busy fundraising rather than governing or addressing critical problems.

Why? Where is the money going?

Only a fool would think it's for Hillary.

Some won't believe until they see it in print. While others like Progressives won't believe anything they don't find on their selected sites.

But, yes it is very obvious this will happen and who the victims of this will be.

Just like Obama.
Change the subject, wag the dog in Syria, instead of facing up to real issues.
I see no foot soldiers son. I see no tanks. I see no basing of the AF in a nearby country.

So it seems a lot better no matter what you claim.

It amazes me still that people don't understand the threat of corperate greed that is universal and yet we are still distracted by whatever the news media brainwash machine tells us to be distracted by. Do you not understand that by now "marketing" your emotions is down to a science. Political, religious,patriotic emotions all manipulated to keep you "in line" and discussing and griping and getting worked up about things that keep you from taking action against or recognizing our real threats.

This president is no worse or better than any other president for the last several years since Eisenhower's Industrial War Complex speech and since Kennedy was assassinated. Since then we have been expected to be sheep who don't question the dictations of our government "investigations" and the media interpretation of it all. Real reporters of news are few as real news is rarely reported anyway.
Yeah

The poll had respondents stating
53% saying that abortion should be legal under special circumstances
22% illegal
21% legal under any circumstances
As angry as it makes Dave at least 59% of the population thinks abortion should be limited/illegal in most or all circumstances.
Instead of the above numbers which would have pushed this to 75% I used the Pro Choice number of 41% as the indicator
You are too stupid to read the numbers which makes you an idiot.
My claim was correct.
Son, I know what YOU chose...

.... I also read what the article said.

Who so you think is right... especially since you quoted the article?

Yeah

I'm talking about you being told what not to think. As opposed to hearing both sides and thinking for yourself.
You should take your own advice.
