trayvon undoubtedly would have benefited from military service. One big problem as a high school drop out, trayvon, would never be able to join the military.

Minorities get all kinds of other preferences and exceptions, why not that?

In fact, the military is practicing racial discrimination by requiring high school graduation.

He really should have addressed his questions to the Republican controlled Congress. After all, that is what they are supposed to do...legislate. No body by con is buying this "blame Obama" crapolla.
The House tried to legislate common sense cuts to eliminate the waste and duplication in government spending but it takes two to tango in Congress. The Democratic Senate wouldn't hear of it.

The Democratic Senate wouldn't pass Obama's massive spending proposed budgets either.

They much prefer sitting on the fence. They don't make waves that way and upset their base. It might cost them votes.

You're being fed a line of bull.

Only 19 progressive groups compared to 292 conservative groups. The former didn't have near the same level of scrutiny or length of delays.
Pretty big discrepancy. Many of those conservative groups had small memberships and only wanted to participate in the political process.
Doesn't occur to you that more teabagger organizations tried to game the system?

The government doesn't create jobs. It encourages hiring by getting out of the way or becomes an obstruction by not doing so and passing legislation like Obamacare.

Section 3 requires specific findings on specific issues by a federal court and cannot be used as a blanket requirement against all changes by a state.
Holder will get bitch-slapped on this issue.
Nah, he's an appointee of a man who should, by law, have been sent to jail instead of the White House.

Holder makes it quite clear that he thinks he is above the law as long as he has Obama's back. That's a cherry deal if I ever saw one.

You seem properly unhappy.
the Pseudo Liberal Democrats are the unhappy ones and cry about it all the time and the reason is because the Pseudo Liberal Democrats know that it takes work to create wealth which is why the Peudo Liberals have always gone after anyone who has wealth or created their own wealth and has worked for it and look for any means possible to confiscate & redistribute someone elses wealth through any means possible and is the real reason why Pseudo Liberal Democrats are unhappy with themselves because they know that it takes work to create wealth something the majority want nothing to do with.

Game the system? Is that what progressive groups have been doing all this time?

How is a lawful tax exemption to participate in the political process waste, fraud and abuse?

Is that what liberal groups have also been doing?

Very good weekend, thanks.

How many jobs aren't being created by Obama refusing to build the pipeline? It would be great if he actually created jobs that would benefit all of us and the country.

But remember those shovel ready jobs he promised? And remember how that ended up being a private joke between him and Emmelt when Obama admitted they never really existed?

Obama wants more government workers than private sector workers. So either he thinks the money for all those salaries and benefits grows on trees or it's by design since, obviously, there isn't going to be enough money from taxpayers in the private sector when everyone is working part-time jobs and that, of course, is where the money actually comes from.

Take your pick. I choose the latter.

I can just picture the pudgy Moochele with her jowls stuffed with lobster and the finest Beluga caviar, butter running down her triple chin. LMAO
As I recall, there WAS lobster on the menu that night...



...and Moochelle couldn't wait for one bite to go down before wolfing down another. She looked like a pitbull at a free all-you-can-eat trough. Funny how she's not ashamed to be an American when she's eating at the taxpayers' expense, isn't it. I suspect she doesn't know the true meaning of shame after watching that video. ;)
The people sitting next to her certainly look embarrassed and are probably thinking they're grateful she's not a relative. I would be.

Liberals are more impressed by the intricacies of a scandal and the ensuing cover-up than any legal or ethical misconduct.

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (CBS13)— An injured veteran of the war in Afghanistan has been told to take down the American flag she has flying from her balcony by her apartment’s management company.

Jen Elliot was shocked when she found a notice on her front door. It’s from her property management company asking her to remove an American flag from her balcony, along with some other items.

“I was very upset and very offended by it,” she said.“We live in America. Why shouldn’t we fly our flag proudly?”

Elliot says she immediately checked her lease to see if she was in fact violating any rules.

“It does say you cannot have flags, plants or wind chimes. However, it does say that the American flag can be displayed within the laws of the state and proper flag etiquette. And mine is.”

After CBS13 went to the property manager, the rental company called Elliot to say she can fly her flag—it just can’t stay where it’s at. The flag can’t be screwed into the siding of her balcony.

“I’ve lost six people in the past three months, and I know they are going through a tough time. I fly that for them.”

She was a specialist serving as a heavy-wheeled vehicle operator and a .50-caliber gunner. She says she flies the flag to remind her of her unit overseas that she can’t be a part of anymore after she was injured.

“I suffered from PVI, which is a traumatic brain injury. I was blown off into the wall, and I was unconscious for a couple of minutes. And I still have PTSD from that.”

Elliot says she’s moving out unless they let her keep the flag the way it is.

“I’ll take my plants and wind chimes down, it that’s what you want. But I’m not taking that flag down.”

The property management company says they are meeting with Jen face-to-face on Monday to discuss their options and how they can come to a resolution.
Yeah

Reminds me of a new show on television about how the brain plays tricks on us. Last night something was said about how it's too hard to make our brains believe something it doesn't want to see.
I had to pause it and look at my husband and say, "Liberals...that explains it."
Right! It's too had for your brain to comprehend the truth! Did your husband say, " time for a stiff one"?
Yeah
