Now Lily, there you go again. You DO know you must have some kind of health insurance before January 1, right? And that millions of people don't have a clue what's going on or how to apply for the exchanges if they don't have insurance, right?
So what does your insulting post have to do with that?

STATEMENT BY SENATORS JOHN McCAIN AND LINDSEY GRAHAM ON SYRIA
June 13, 2013
Washington, D.C.¬– U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) today released the following statement on Syria:
“We appreciate the President’s finding that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons on several occasions. We also agree with the President that this fact must affect U.S. policy toward Syria. The President’s red line has been crossed. U.S. credibility is on the line. Now is not the time to merely take the next incremental step. Now is the time for more decisive actions.
“The conflict in Syria has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. The United Nations reported today that the death toll in Syria is approaching 93,000. Hezbollah is all in. Iran is all in. Iraqi militant groups are flowing into Syria to fight for Assad. Russia continues to provide military and diplomatic support. Assad is dramatically increasing his use of airpower against civilians and opposition forces in Syria. A report today stated that Assad’s forces conducted at least 5,000 air-to-ground attacks last month alone.
“A decision to provide lethal assistance, especially ammunition and heavy weapons, to opposition forces in Syria is long overdue, and we hope the President will take this urgently needed step. But providing arms alone is not sufficient. That alone is not enough to change the military balance of power on the ground against Assad. The President must rally an international coalition to take military actions to degrade Assad’s ability to use airpower and ballistic missiles and to move and resupply his forces around the battlefield by air. This can be done, as we have said many times, using stand-off weapons such as cruise missiles.
“We cannot afford to delay any longer. Assad is on the offensive with every weapon in his arsenal and with the complete support of his foreign allies. We must take more decisive actions now to turn the tide of the conflict in Syria.”
It's the right wingers that want to ratchet things up in Syria and risk getting into a serious pissing contest with Russia.

Did the IRS Win the Election for Obama?

There are two problems with this conclusion. The first problem is that the popular vote for GOP House candidates in 2012 was 58 million compared to 2010&#8242;s 45 million. Instead of being incapable of exercising their constitutional rights, 13 million more Tea Party-influenced voters apparently were very capable of exercising their rights. Of course, 2012 was a presidential election year which always produces a higher vote. But a 28 percent surge in voting can hardly be described as a “muted” impact.

Moreover, the GOP’s share of the 2012 House vote was six million more than in the previous presidential cycle in 2008. Vueger claims the Tea Party should have produced 5-8 million more votes in 2012, and it looks like that’s exactly what it did, substantially increasing the GOP’s totals over 2008 and 2010. So what’s this business about the IRS?

One more time you prove your self to be full of shit. Point out a single post where I have ignored or condoned violence. Just one. You must have one other wise you would not open your mouth and spew lies.
Ignore violence? Again you lie. I speak out often against abortion/murder, the taking of the life of innocents a practice you whole heartedely support. I am anti death penalty, I would much prefer those sentenced rot for 30 - 40 years in solitary confinement. Of course with a TV, but a TV with just two channels available, the weather channel so he/she will know how warm it is in his/her un air conditioned cell and Fox News.

Not all whistle blowers are Snowden.

We have laws protecting whistle blowers as they help keep our government open to the voters.

You and any other progressives chanting "You either all in for Obama or traitor" are brain washed sheep. I have no patience for those you sold themselves to a leader.

Scat now!

OBama has been ruthless to whistle blowers prosecuting more than any other admin in first four years.

It's a fact!
