Paris Hilton at 17 was not nearly as depraved as Saint Trayvon.

But, yes, her parents irresponsibly farmed out their daughter instead of providing structure at home.

America IS failing because it elected a Socialist President.

Obama's racism is just a minor part of his failures.

Let me rephrase that. Past presidents have been impeached and one president resigned for much lesser offenses.
I choose forced resignation as Obama's preferable fate since Nixon was forced to resign and didn't even come close to the infractions of targeting his political enemies as this president has done and betraying the people's trust and lying straight-faced to them.
Perhaps the volcano is about to erupt and we just see a little bit of smoke. I hope it erupts like Mount St. Helen's and we can start all over again and rebuild out of the ashes.

And Reagan would be a democrat!!! What are you snacking on????
JFK:

"Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

"A rising tide lifts all boats." (Meaning: The government economic policy should focus on the general macroeconomic environment first and foremost.)

Bill Clinton:

"The era of big government is over."

Ronald Reagan:

"Government is not the solution to the problem. Government IS the problem."

Sounds pretty much like they're all conservatives to me.

Compared to the radical liberal we have now who you seem to have a crush on.

What we are witnessing is a lot like Sport Team Rivalry with teams for the blacks and teams for the whites with the Liberal Media organizing the show and its commentary.
But it is NOT Sports Team Rivalry. Popular Liberal Media reduces everything down to Biggest Loser, The Bachelor, Dancing With The Stars or American Idol - cheap, simplistic and entertaining like the Roman Colosseum Games - with George's life on the line pitted against the Magic Negro's lions of Eric Racist Holder, the Jesse Sharptons and the Bovine Bycth hearing the case.
It is sometimes difficult to remove ourselves from the fog of virtual worlds created by Liberal Media and stand tall as thinking individuals.
Often, I find myself consciously casting off the plastic flowers of Liberal reality with a quick brisk walk through my fruit orchard or an evening studying math and science.
It is dangerous to allow others to create or even interpret reality for you.
Except when you're in a romantic mood:]
The only thing romantic about the liberal media is their slobbering love affair with this president.

But some of us find slobbering gross.

Bad news for tea party

The U.S. government posted a budget surplus in June, the latest sign of rapidly improving public finances that could reduce the urgency in Congress to strike a deal to raise the nation's limit on borrowing.

Rising tax revenues, public spending cuts and big payments to the Treasury from state-backed mortgage firms helped the government take in $117 billion more last month than it paid out, the U.S. Treasury said on Thursday.

I think George has great Appeal and he'll be doing just that if that bovine beast's court finds him guilty.
The actions of that bullshit judge is a really quick mistrial decision on appeal. The entire incident can be summed up as the judge ignoring the 5th Amendment and forcing the defendant to speak to the court because of some information that was no more than rumor she heard outside the court room.
Any reasonable governing body would immediately remove her from this case, and the bench, for that matter, after observing her unconstitutional behavior. It became obvious she is interjecting her personal bias intending to influence the verdict in her preferred direction.

... then there's the issue of the criminal act of the state's attorney hiding evidence from the grand jury.

Even if true, which it is not, "a preponderance of the evidence" is not the required standard of proof in a criminal trial.

So the old draft-dodger shoots his own argument in the balls.

Once House Republicans passed a bill earlier this year to address skyrocketing student loan rates, the GOP seemed perfectly content to watch rates double this month, since the showdown gave them an opportunity to criticize Democrats for inaction and delay.

The Republican list of potential candidates is strong, including (alphabetically) Bush, Christie, Cruz, Paul, Ryan, and Rubio.
The Democrats have no bench whatsoever after Hillary declines or is forced out, leaving any easy path for whomever Obama designates to fill the vacuum.
If that's the best cons have, they still haven't learned a thing.

What I have learned is they're willing to do anything to press their agenda on Americans.

Sure.
That's why Obama dropped the employer mandate.
Delaying by one year the implementation of the employer mandate is not the same as "dropping" it. Unfortunately, cry babies often get their way and we know business owners are always crying about one thing or another. They needed more time to implement the mandate and they got it. They have an extra year to get their act together...so be it.
