Assumes facts not in evidence. Perhaps Snowden has much more information. Besides, why is Barry too lazy to try? No wheeling or dealing or trading, just a firm unconditional demand for his return. Unless Barry is afraid to have Snowden back where he could testify in court about NSA abuses of civil liberties.
You know as well as I that the Department of Justice is working on getting Snowden back to the United States. The fact that President Obama has placed limits on how far we are willing to go makes common sense. Ecuador needs us. We don't need Ecuador.

And, we certainly don't need Snowden back in the United States. Sure, trying him for espionage, theft of government property, leaking national defense information and revealing classified information about communications intelligence would be ideal but expelling him to Ecuador for the rest of his life is fine with me. At least the tax payers won't be picking up the tab for a lengthy trial and 30+ years of imprisonment.

From everything I have read and heard, we know exactly what information Snowden has in his possession. He has done irreparable damage to our country but the damage has been done. Terrorists now know how to protect themselves from our surveillance programs thanks to traitor Snowden.

How could you have possibly read that into my post?
In fact, all Galt suggested was that women were being treated as second-class citizens because abortion clinics are not held to the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities.
There is no such right, but that's another story.
Yes, U S abortion clinics are held to a higher 'standard' set by the Federal Government.

One major obstacle to most people looking for work is their unwillingness to relocate to where the jobs are. The inner city will not be that place any time in the near future because the costs of operating there are simply too high.
That's where Galt is wrong. As gas prices rise, commuter transportation to and from the suburbs becomes more expensive and companies and their younger, more mobile-friendly work force are moving back to complete cities that provide a variety of less-expensive mas transit options, bus, train, bike and car share, etc., affordable mixed-use housing,commercial buildings, entertainment, and pleasure.

Sounds like a plan to encourage more Snowdens.

The Truthiness Is Out There
OK, this is awesome. Dylan Byers at Politico gets Erick son of Erick to respond to my observation that, although he rants about the rising prices of milk and bread — which somehow has something to do with pundits riding the Acela — the truth is that milk and bread prices have been flat for about five years, and in particular have gone nowhere despite all that money the Fed has printed. And Erickson’s response is, hey, it isn’t true, but people feel that it’s true:
Not everything is academic or chartable and sometimes the accuracy of the chart isn’t as real to people as the perception they have that their grocery store bills are getting more expensive though their shopping habits haven’t changed.

Seriously, Paul’s point is correct, but it is an issue of perception of people versus the reality of his chart. He can certainly go tell people milk prices haven’t gone up, but good luck getting them to believe him.
Notice, by the way, the implication that I don’t appreciate the problems real people (who don’t eat quiche or ride the Acela) are facing; actually, I do, but those problems are lack of jobs and stagnant wages, not rising prices. And if you want to solve problems, getting the nature of those problems right matters.
But then, only elitists want to solve problems; true men of the people just vent, and what matters is perception, not truth.

oh wait. that's the old FOX motto.

Are those standards the same as for other outpatient surgery centers, such as for performing colonoscopies?

Are all procedures performed by a licensed medical doctor?

And if there are standards, how did Gosnell continue to operate for so long?

It's a 'scandal' that proved to be an issue with the IRS, NOT this administration...no matter how loudly FOX talking heads scream otherwise.
Just like Fast and Furious and Benghazi, Issa strikes out once again.
Well, we almost made it through a whole week without a new O'bama Regime scandal, but the good folks at Judicial Watch never rest, and they announced today that they’ve obtained records from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) exposing that millions of dollars have been spent by the agency on the warrantless collection and analysis of Americans’ financial transactions

The full extent of the CFPB personal financial data collection program is revealed in a document obtained by Judicial Watch entitled “INDEFINITE-DELIVERY INDEFINITY-QUANTITY (IDIQ) STATEMENT OF WORK.” According to the IDIQ document’s stated Objective:“The CFPB seeks to acquire and maintain a nationally representative panel of credit information on consumers for use in a wide range of policy research projects… The panel shall be a random sample of consumer credit files obtains from a national database of credit files.”

But Homer could go to the hood and hire new employees.'SteelStacks' will be the centerpiece public space for Bethlehem's inner core town meeting place.
The Mayor of Bethlehem ,Pennsylvania relished the news of the old steel town's revival. "After lying dormant for more than a decade, Pennsylvania’s Bethlehem Steel complex is poised for rebirth with a new public space at its core. Once the second-largest producer of steel in the United States, the plant and its iconic blast furnaces will become the backdrop for a 4.5-acre arts cultural campus that is expected to draw 750,000 visitors to the Lehigh Valley each year. Called SteelStacks, the project is a result of years of planning by local group ArtsQuest and public broadcaster PBS 39 following the plant’s closure in 1995 and its partial conversion into the Sands Casino, open last year."

What are you saying here, Homer?
Obama did not focus on jobs and the economy but Obamacare and why we're even having this discussion.
Low wage earners is a reality for low-skilled workers. Always has.
If you want to talk about increasing minimum wage, I'm all ears, because I believe the cost of living has grown and minimum wages haven't kept up.
But without employers willing to hire because of the unknowns of Obamacare, even raising the minimum wage is pointless.
Right?
I'm not suggesting they should, quit acting like you work for Fox News and quit spinning everything.

As for the economy, that's a load of crap, the stimulus was passed almost immediately and healthcare reform was not until a year later.

Why do you whiners rely on the government to provide jobs anyhow?

Rightwing aholes have been sitting around for 4 years waiting for the government to fix the economy. Astounding.

Stocks Poised for Best First-Half Since 1999

"Sure the S&P 500 (^GSPC) could snap its streak of six consecutive monthly gains, but few are complaining given the fact that the key equity benchmarks are all up double-digits year-to-date thanks to a rally that saw all ten sectors rising and in many ways defied logic.
So what was the biggest hurdle during the first half of the year?
"Ignoring all of the Congressional dysfunction," replies Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ. "The market kept punching through to establish new highs, just working through the uncertainty of dysfunction."
Of course Stovall is referring to the endless overhang of two fiscal cliffs, a debt-ceiling fight, a budget funding showdown and the implementation of an across the board increase in payroll taxes. It was daunting and scary list of symptoms that left many frustrated bears heckling from the sidelines while the S&P 500 cruised to an all-time high of 1687 on May 22nd."

----------

All while the Teabagger idiots try to talk down the economy.

The stock market IS the economy, you idiots.

It is comprises of American Corporations like Walmart and GE, and many thousands of others.

As goes the market, so goes the economy.

Bush destroyed it, Obama fixed it.

Most don't have transportation, another expense, plus gas, babysitters, etc. So basically you have no avenue and they are permanently trapped? It's ok to say it most Republicans feel that way and have abandoned the inner cities, at least be honest.
