Your irrational hatred of Fox and blaming all conservatives for the fact I happen to watch O'Reilly is just part of the liberal nonsense since not much you guys do makes a whole lot of sense.
Now get back in line and follow the herd like a good little liberal.
You're probably getting your marching orders as we speak from the liberal media from on high.

jobs?
so let's see the bills introduced by Republicans that address that issue.
can't find any? sure you can't. helping the American people find a job might make Obama look good. can't have that, can we?
as we all suffer while Republicans have given up on governance to play the identity politics game. it's just a shame that they'll never win another national election until they quite catering to 3 million lowly FOXbots.
What do you consider "addressing" the employment problem? Creating more idiotic gubbermint "shovel ready" jobs like Lord Obama did years go? Yeah, that was hysterical. He even laughed about how the $800 BILLION they flushed down the crapper didn't do much because the jobs "weren't as shovel ready (ha ha ha)" as he expected.

I don't suppose he could admit on camera that the money went to state gubbermint unions to bail out their pensions. That would be too honest.

Face it. Your Lord Obama is a FAILURE. He and the rest of the Socialist/Democrats had the run of the place for two years and the Senate for four, they blew trillions of dollars paying off their buddies in trade unions and DNC donors, and WE'RE STILL ABOVE 7.5% UNEMPLOYMENT. OVER 12.5 MILLION ARE COLLECTING DISABILITY. WE STILL HAVE A RECESSION. THE ECONOMY SUCKS.

It's like your buddy BJ Clinton ejaculating in the face of a 20-year-old employee. When the blue dress comes out, you have to stop lying about it. Well, you need to do the same about your Lord's handling of the economy. THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE.

Tenzing lives in the Soros Echo chamber that thinks everybody who isn't pro-Obama must be a member of the Tea Party.

I am liking it. He is alienating more than shaming people here which is the stupidity of the Progressive sites.

Both Detroit and Chicago are hoping to save money and reduce pension obligations by moving retirees off city health care plans and onto the exchanges. Bloomberg:

[Detroit's Emergency Manager Kevyn] Orr wants to give current and former workers health-reimbursement accounts. The city would pay from $100 to $250 a month to help with medical costs or premiums under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to a proposal to city unions [...]

Chicago plans to phase out retiree health coverage by the beginning of 2017, according to a May 15 letter from Comptroller Amer Ahmad.

In more than a dozen classified rulings, the nation’s surveillance court has created a secret body of law giving the National Security Agency the power to amass vast collections of data on Americans while pursuing not only terrorism suspects, but also people possibly involved in nuclear proliferation, espionage and cyberattacks, officials say.

The rulings, some nearly 100 pages long, reveal that the court has taken on a much more expansive role by regularly assessing broad constitutional questions and establishing important judicial precedents, with almost no public scrutiny, according to current and former officials familiar with the court’s classified decisions.

The 11-member Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, known as the FISA court, was once mostly focused on approving case-by-case wiretapping orders. But since major changes in legislation and greater judicial oversight of intelligence operations were instituted six years ago, it has quietly become almost a parallel Supreme Court, serving as the ultimate arbiter on surveillance issues and delivering opinions that will most likely shape intelligence practices for years to come, the officials said.

More whimsey from the NC teabaggers who couldn't care less about liberty and obviously haven't been Taxed Enough Already:
5 Worst Ideas From North Carolina’s Tea Party Legislature
Accidentally Banning Domestic Partnerships Between Heterosexual Couples
North Carolina voters took to the polls last year and voted overwhelmingly in favor of a Constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. What voters didn’t realize was that defining the only legal partnership as marriage between one man and one woman could in turn nullify domestic partnerships between heterosexual couples. Which is exactly what happened.
The text of Amendment One reads that “marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.” Prior to this vote, same-sex marriage was already illegal in the state. The amendment just added an extra layer, making civil unions and domestic partnerships illegal as well — for everyone.
What do you mean by "domestic partnerships between heterosexual couples"?

Glad to hear that you check all facts independently rather than using one of the so-called "fact-check" sites.
