Letter to Hypocritical Limousine Liberals:

OCCUPY THIS

My husband worked on a drilling rig 12 hours a day for 301 of 365 days last year in the heat and cold to provide for our family.

The petroleum he helps produce created

the INK for your protest signs,
the STRINGS for your guitars,
the contacts and glasses you need to watch your speakers,
the ICE CHESTS that hold your organic milk,
the black nail POLISH you are wearing,
the rubber TIRES on your bikes and
the soles of your SHOES you wear to protest in,
the TARPS and TENTS you are sleeping under,
the CAMERAS you use to capture images of police brutality,
and the PORT-O-POTTIES you are demanding from the city.
Even the MICROPHONES you use to condemn the evil oil companies, banks and corporation are made from petroleum.

The PENSIONS you expect contain 27% of OIL STOCKS.

So, until you’re willing to…
a) Do my husband’s job
b) Give up your iphone for a goat and cotton tent…
GO HOME HYPOCRITES!

WE ARE THE 53%

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
You show your ignorance every time you post here.
You are obviously not aware of the tradition of hacking off a young girl's clitoris when she begins to develop pubic hair, dufus. The Muslim Brotherhood is the primary enforcer of this tradition in Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood is in the White House every day, idiot.

Now, how do you feel about Obama having in the White House every day people who force women to have their vagina mutilated?

I expect to see you outside the White House tomorrow with your protest sign.

It's not at all surprising that one corn ball would like another one. Rand Paul is a total joke and unqualified for nothing other than shooting off his backwoods mouth.
Rand Paul is a political opportunist and does not stand up for his avowed libertarian principles. He knows Congress can shut off any military or foreign aid that it wants to, and also Congress has the authority and oversight over the Pentagon budget requests--but not one libertarian -oriented Republican Congressman, not even Paul Ryan or Rand Paul has said a word on the Pentagon considering cuts to war hazard pay to its veterans and other employees. Why does our private and public labor force always have to pay the price for reducing spending? The $120 million dollars in savings could have been achieved by implementing President Obama's new agreement with Russia to reduce nuclear weapons arsenals to the minimum level of 700 warheads or scaling back the impressive NSA metadata mining operations.

Photoshop... Yes, I've seen evidence of politicians using photoshop to fabricate what they want you to believe.
For instance, in three versions released by the White House, Obama is in three different positions in the photos of the command center during the bin Laden mission while everyone else in the room is in the exact same position with the exact same expression.

Now, back to Michelle Obama surrendering her law license to avoid prosecution in an insurance fraud case:

You have a copy of the actual document that has different notations on it, right?
You wouldn't be suggesting that there are people putting fraudulent documents on the internet for political reasons, would you? Would that be one of those conspiracies that are impossible? You're not a conspiracy nut, are you?
Michelle Obama voluntarily surrendered her law license to avoid prosecution in an insurance fraud case.
The Illinois Supreme Court’s Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission put the notation "court ordered inactive status" to prevent Michelle Obama from having reciprocity from Illinois in case she just moved to another state to scam insurance companies from there after she was busted for that in Illinois.
Or, show us the document that has a notation other than "court ordered inactive status".

The Republicans’ 2016 “Bench” Is Weaker Than It Appears

The Economist considers Rick Perry’s political future. I’m not very interested in speculation about Rick Perry’s presidential ambitions, but this line seemed very questionable:

More broadly, the potential 2016 bench looks far stronger than the weaklings who thrashed Mr Perry in 2012.

This could be true, but it reminds me of the claims so many conservatives were making when they complaining in 2011 and 2012 that all the good candidates had stayed out of the race. Many conservatives became enamored of their many fantasy candidates only after they saw the declared candidates in action, and I suspect that the declared candidates in 2015 and 2016 will cause the same dissatisfaction. The 2016 field could very well come to be seen as being just as weak as the 2012 one, because candidates usually appear much weaker once they are actively campaigning. Political liabilities and controversies that most voters know nothing about come to light during these campaigns, and many politicians successful at the state level or in Congress don’t make the transition to presidential politics successfully. Glaring deficiencies that previously didn’t matter, such as a lack of foreign policy experience or knowledge, can quickly become major problems. As Perry discovered on immigration-related policies, issues that didn’t cause a politician much trouble at the state level can end up significantly hurting him in a national contest. Some candidates can overcompensate for their weaknesses by becoming a cardboard-cutout ideologue whose campaign message is pitched to activists and pundits instead of voters, who find that these candidates have nothing relevant to say to them.

Where's the inflation??
Where's the collapse of the American Auto Industry??
Where's the economic collapse you've been predicting since Jan 2009??
Where's the $7 gasoline??
You haven't made a correct call since Obama was first elected, nearly 5 years ago.
Yet your ignorance persists..........

"On October 9, 2007, the Dow closed at its pre-recession all-time high of 14,164.43."

I said this yesterday:

Anyone who calls an economy that has more people on welfare than working in the economy a healthy economy is an idiot.

... I think that would be you.
