When someone with your obvious mental problems cannot get much needed help then the system is still flawed.

I find it incredible that guys like DB and Waxy aren't put away somewhere. There must be some people they communicate with that recognize that they need help. Maybe DB's Russian bride doesn't speak English yet.
Or maybe she didn't get her green card yet!

I overheard 2 old farts talking to each other at the grocery store; could tell they were foxbots. They actually thought they were having their own conversation! One was repeating Glen Beck and the other one Rush Limbaugh. Two bobblehead dittoheads!!

I love Wendy Davis! Hope she runs for higher office, maybe Gov of Texas
If she feels so strongly about abortion, she should be the next Dr. Gosnell. I mean really how much closer to the heart of what she wants women to do can she get? be an abortion doctor Wendy Davis--you go girl. But she would have to leave Texas--they don't want her kind there.

That's a very strange world you hypocritical paranoid righties reside in where defending the indefensible becomes the norm, and reality is what ever fits your political fantasies.????

“She’s so spirited; you know, she has such energy, and she seems to have such commitment,”

"But it seems to me, and I think it seems to many Americans, that what she is speaking for and standing for is something we recognize as infanticide, late-term abortion, the taking of a little child’s life. That is really, really serious.”

“Oh my goodness,” Noonan continued,“we’re celebrating something that even in Europe they call a matter of brutality and barbarism.”

If Trayvon had been a full-term fetus, it wouldn't matter that he'd been killed by a Dr Mengeles Nazi type doctor.

National Unity on Foreign Policy

The laying of a wreath at the American embassy in Dar es Salaam Tuesday symbolized a big theme of both the Barack Obama and George W Bush administrations: The war against al Qaeda.

President Obama was warmly greeted by throngs in Tanzania, but his message of trade was overshadowed by other events around the world.

The two men met in Tanzania to to honor the memories of the 224 people – 12 of them Americans – killed by al Qaeda truck bombs at that embassy and the one in Nairobi, Kenya, on Aug. 7, 1998.

Osama bin Laden’s embassy attacks were precursors of 9/11; signals, unmistakable in retrospect, that bin Laden and his allies had launched a new kind of war.

For both friends and foes Bush’s handling of all that occurred after Sept. 11, 2001, will be the major part of his legacy, a legacy about which Bush said in an interview with CNN Monday he wasn’t worried:

“history will judge the decisions that I made. And I won't be around because it's going to take a while for the objective historians to show up.”

But in dealing with al Qaeda, Obama hasn’t turned out to be exactly what his supporters expected in 2008.

Obama expanded Bush’s strategy of using unmanned drones to kill suspected terrorists in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.

There’s continuity with President Bill Clinton, too. Clinton tried to kill bin Laden after the 1998 embassy attacks with a cruise missile strike in Afghanistan – not so different from a drone strike.

Bush – who has been circumspect and has said almost nothing about terrorism since leaving office – has not only refrained from criticizing his successor, but on Monday essentially endorsed Obama’s handling of the NSA/ Snowden mess.

“I know he (Snowden) damaged the country. The Obama administration will deal with it,” the former president said.

Asked about the NSA surveillance, Bush said,“I put the program in place to protect the country and one of the certainties is civil liberties were guaranteed.”

He added,“I think there needs to be a balance (between individual liberty and national security) and as the president (Obama) described, there is a proper balance.”

Obama, he said magnanimously, has “got plenty on his agenda and it's difficult. A former president doesn't need to make it harder” by criticizing him.

In his National Defense University speech, Obama said that “this war, like all wars, must end,” but the war which included the 1998 embassy bombings will likely continue after Obama leaves the White House.

Yes, it's certainly interesting! Meanwhile; Snowden has no passport and nowhere to go! Of course President Bush and any President would be supportive! After all, he created the program in the first place.
Looks bad in Egypt; who do they want to be President anyway?
