yeap California is out to screw its citizens out of their money just like the Federal Government did with Social Security and SCOTUS ruled in 1960 in Flemming v Nestor that there is no Rights to Social Security which Can reduce or eliminate at anytime because its based on a tax and the smart people better be packing their bags and getting out of California since that is proof the Pseudo Liberal Utopia is in trouble.

BTW can you identify the second largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil and who was responsible for it?
A mere 20 years ago, responding to pressure from then-President Clinton to de-emphasize Arab international terrorism, FBI head Louis Freeh shifted the agency’s focus from foreign terrorists to domestic terrorists or “rightwing extremists.” As a direct consequence, 40 boxes of evidence from the first World Trade Center attack in 1993 that would have revealed valuable information about Al Qaeda operations were never reviewed and key evidence, including the presence of Arab nationals at U.S. flight schools, was ignored.

In the same way, serious evidence of Middle Eastern involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing that claimed 168 lives, injured more than 680 people and damaged 324 buildings within a 16 block radius was ignored. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) alluded to this in his 2006 Chairman’s Report for the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee on the attack. Rohrabacher cited suspicions of meetings and phone calls between bombing accomplice Terry Nichols and convicted 1993 World Trade Center (WTC) mastermind Ramzi Yousef. Similarly, the attack strategy and mechanics resembled the first WTC bombing. Finally, multiple witnesses reported seeing Hussain Hashem al-Hussaini, an Iraqi connected to Saddam Hussein’s Republican Guard, in the company of McVeigh prior to the bombing, leaving the truck used in the attack, and driving away prior to the blast. These significant similarities didn’t even warrant an investigation by the Clinton administration.
*Seems to me Moslems, to answer your question. How did so many of these terrorists get here? I remember after Oklahoma City was bombed, Clinton gave a presser to the American people. He said "we need to look no further than to the East".

GENEVA — A member of the notorious "Pink Panther" jewel thief gang escaped from a Swiss prison after accomplices rammed a gate and overpowered guards with bursts from their AK-47s, police said Friday.
Milan Poparic, 34, fled with fellow inmate Adrian Albrecht, 52, from the Orbe prison in the western canton (state) of Vaud late Thursday, according to a police statement.
He is the third member of the Pink Panthers to escape from a Swiss prison in as many months, according to Vaud police.
Poparic, a Bosnian national, had been serving a sentence of six years and eight months for robbing a jewelry store in the Swiss city of Neuchatel in 2009. Albrecht was serving a seven-year prison sentence for various crimes including robbery, arson and money laundering.

Here’s Why the Republican Party’s Minority Outreach Effort Won’t Work

The explosion of conservative vitriol after Obama’s understated and sincere remarks on race and Trayvon Martin makes the GOP’s attempt to woo black voters look like mission impossible

Earlier this year, following an “autopsy” of the Republican Party, GOP Chairman Reince Priebus announced that the party would spend $10 million to help attract minority votes.

He may as well set that money on fire. It would do just as much good for the GOP. One need look no further than the last week to understand exactly why non-whites do not see a home when they look at the Republican Party.

I know your right about Connecticut but Both the Pseudo Liberals in the Democrat and the Republican Party are destroying the Country and Bush proved he and the other Republicans that voted for 7 trillion dollars to be added to the Federal Deficit for the entitlement society were Pseudo Liberals too which Conservatives said their Medicare Part D was the worst legistlation ever passed in US History and Obamacare is suppose to generate 7 trillion dollars to pay for the 7 trillion dollar Medicare Part D entitlement that was added to the Federal Deficit which to me that Medicare Part D should be repealed since the ones that are currently benefiting didnt pay for it.

Let me guess. Bill Clinton & Janet Reno were responsible for it after killing innocent people in Waco, TX so they in-effect instigated the Oklahoma City Bombing ?

Or are you talking about first Trade Tower Bombing?

Define "largest terrorist attack"?

If you go by the definition of Obama, maybe it should be defined as workplace violence? There is not such thing as terrorism.

After reading this breaking news about Halliburtan then I would believe most would agree that privatizing public services isn't such a great idea. We don't ever get our money's worth. BREAKING: Halliburton pleads guilty to destroying evidence in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill investigation http://reut.rs/19l1jQI

The U.S. government says Halliburton accepted criminal responsibility for destroying evidence relating to whether the Macondo well blowout could have been prevented.

The jury decides the facts based on the law and the District Attorney says, under the law, the driver is culpable in the death of the two women. It is up to the jury to say whether they agree. Recently, an eighteen year old fell asleep at the wheel, killing another driver. He was charged with vehicular manslaughter and his trial ended with a hung jury. This is no different.

BOW DOWN URBAN DEMOCRATS SUCKERS DUNCES REALLY LIKE IT OR NOT History shows that the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party. This ugly fact about the Democrat Party is detailed in the book, A Short History of Reconstruction,(Harper & Row Publishers, Inc., 1990) by Dr. Eric Foner, the renown liberal historian who is the DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University. As a further testament to his impeccable credentials, Professor Foner is only the second person to serve as president of the three major professional organizations: the Organization of American Historians, American Historical Association, and Society of American Historians.
Democrats in the last century did not hide their connections to the Ku Klux Klan. Georgia-born Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan wrote on page 21 of the September 1928 edition of the Klan’s “The Kourier Magazine”:“I have never voted for any man who was not a regular Democrat. My father … never voted for any man who was not a Democrat. My grandfather was …the head of the Ku Klux Klan in reconstruction days…. My great-grandfather was a life-long Democrat…. My great-great-grandfather was…one of the founders of the Democratic party.”

Dr. Foner in his book explores the history of the origins of Ku Klux Klan and provides a chilling account of the atrocities committed by Democrats against Republicans, black and white.

On page 146 of his book, Professor Foner wrote:“Founded in 1866 as a Tennessee social club, the Ku Klux Klan spread into nearly every Southern state, launching a ‘reign of terror‘ against Republican leaders black and white.” Page 184 of his book contains the definitive statements:“In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who desired the restoration of white supremacy. It aimed to destroy the Republican party’s infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state, reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial subordination in every aspect of Southern life.”

here we go again with the Saddam link, please give it up.

The Middle Eastern men at flight schools occurred during the Bush administration

and finally, the motive for the Oklahoma city bombing was what happened at Waco

THEY TURNED YOUR CHILDREN INTO DUNCES ONCE YOU WERE TREATED CIVIL Heartbreaking are Professor Foner’s recitations of the horrific acts of terror inflicted by Democrats on black and white Republicans. Recounted on pages 184-185 of his book is one such act of terror:“Jack Dupree, a victim of a particularly brutal murder in Monroe County, Mississippi - assailants cut his throat and disemboweled him, all within sight of his wife, who had just given birth to twins - was ‘president of a republican club‘ and known as a man who ‘would speak his mind.’”

“White gangs roamed New Orleans, intimidating blacks and breaking up Republican meetings,“ wrote Dr. Foner on page 146 of his book. On page 186, he wrote:“An even more extensive ‘reign of terror’ engulfed Jackson, a plantation county in Florida’s panhandle.‘That is where Satan has his seat,‘ remarked a black clergyman; all told over 150 persons were killed, among them black leaders and Jewish merchant Samuel Fleischman, resented for his Republican views and for dealing fairly with black customers.“

Cuccinelli calls Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who is in hot water for smearing young immigrants as “drug mules,” his “very favorite” Congressman and has himself compared rats to immigrants in 2012. When asked about how to best deal with rats found in the Occupy D.C. protests, he told a conservative talk show that he was fiercely opposed to keeping them alive.“If you don’t move an animal at least 25 miles, it’ll come back. And so what’s the solution to that? Well, cross a river… it is worse than our immigration policy — you can’t break up rat families. Or raccoons or all the rest and you can’t even kill them. Unbelievable,” Cuccinelli said.
