You haven't told us what a Special Purpose Vehicle is yet, dumbass.

Evidently you don't know. Why don't you study up & come back when you know what one is.

Come up with your own material.
Remember when people used to say, "I may disagree with what you say but I will fight till the death to defend your right to say it"?
Liberals now say, "If I disagree with what you say, I will assassinate your character, call you a racist and act like I'm superior because you haven't evolved to my level of elitism."
That's you.
Liar.

McCain sealed his defeat when he became an obvious liberal.
Constitutionalists never liked him.
Social conservatives never liked him.
He was doomed to lose from the beginning. Everyone knew that. Palin drew more people out than otherwise would have been. Nobody wanted him. How he got the nomination is still a mystery.
lol! Then he shouldn't have gotten the nomination, son!

McCain lost because he catered to the people who were already going to vote for him. Picking Palin simply solidified that point.

It also turned off those who were undecided... especially when the comical antics of her handlers to keep her under control was a 30 hour a day job!

<quoted text> We went into Afghanistan to get Bin Laden & then Bush declared him irrelevant, abandoning the effort.
We went into Afghanistan to take over the country because that's where the attack came from, dumbass.
Mission Accomplished.
Now, Obama is giving it back to the Taliban.

By the way, you never gave us any reason why we need to talk to the Taliban, anyway. If Obama wants to surrender and leave, justp pack up and go. We could be completely out of Afghanistan in less than a month. Why are we staying longer?
... unless it's to sabotage the Karzai government and put the Taliban back in control of the Afghan government.

Why are there engaging in talks with the Taliban? Karzai don't want it. The Taliban attacked us on 9/11(2001). They're not surrendering to the Armed Forces of the United States.
Why are we even talking with them?

Lol...so, instead of parroting what you read, why don't you tell us exactly how much whole life insursnce he has.
GFY dummy, it's well known that sports figures, captains of industry and entertainment figures purchase life insurance or negotiate for it in their contracts/accept it in a compensation package.

Point is that damn near every wealthy person has life insurance in spite of what Galt say's and your stupid azz echos.

What a mess! Lol

"Under a wrinkle that dates back to enactment of the law, members of Congress and thousands of their aides are required to get their coverage through new state-based markets known as insurance exchanges.But the law does not provide any obvious way for the federal government to continue paying its share of the premiums for the comprehensive coverage.If the government cannot do so, it could mean an additional expense of $5,000 a year for individuals and $11,000 for families under some of the most popular plans.Not surprisingly, that idea is unpopular on Capitol Hill.“It’s a very serious concern,” said Representative Billy Long, a Missouri Republican who said staff members were “freaked out” at the prospect of paying the full cost of insurance out of their own pockets.“They’re thinking about leaving government service,” "

Ok.
This does sound like a joke, doesn't it?
Sarah Palin looked like an imbecile with her Big Gulp soda float. Can we agree she is one big reason McCain didn't have a chance? If something happened to him, the country would be run by a soccer mom who didn't know basic geography or even who world leaders were.

Teach us something, dupe. Tell us what a Special Purpose Vehicle is.
Tell us the history of SPVs being used to get fraudulent ratings applied to real estate traunches.
You haven't told us what a Special Purpose Vehicle is yet, dumbass.
Tell us what it is.

Or, you can go back through my posts to read a very clear description of what they are, and how they were used to get fraudulent ratings applied to the real estate traunches comprised of worthless CRA mortgages.

Dumbass Dave hits a new low in studipity considering that baby boomers range in age from 47 to 67.
Boomers born between 1946 & 1964. In 25 years, that would be 74 to 92. Average life expectancy for a boomer is 83. Half would be dead in 25 years.

Galt proved wrong yet again.

"Mr. Obama has averaged 37 executive orders p.a., which is below the long-term average of 44 p.a., and lower also than the rate of five GOP presidents – including Gerald Ford (84 p.a.), Dwight Eisenhower (60 p.a.), Richard Nixon (58 p.a.), Ronald Reagan (48 p.a.), and George H.W.
