You must consider Obama the most powerful man on earth if you hold him responsible for political disputes in Egypt. Do you think Obama can make it rain?
POTUS is the most powerful person on Earth, regardless of who occupies the office.

That power requires judgment and responsibility.

Eastern Shore professors to get bulletproof whiteboards; screw the students

Calling "campus violence a reality" to prepare for, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore announced plans Thursday to spend $60,000 on the Clark Kent of teacher supplies: an innocuous-looking white board that can stop bullets.

The high-tech tablet — which hangs on a hook, measures 18 by 20 inches and comes in pink, blue and green — can be used as a personal shield for professors under attack, according to the company that makes it, and a portable writing pad in quieter times.

That would a surprise to see the market go back up like it was--as it had been SO WAY over inflated for such a LONG, long time...WAY out of sync and way beyond the REAL working class average earnings.
Kinda think your prediction is jusssstt a little dreamland gilded Galt.
Its not going to go back up to where it was for probably decades but it is already steadily appreciating and currently a good investment. Rent returns are at investment levels and will be while the market continues to stabilize. I haven't looked at a full year yet but my Boca house is probably bringing in close to 10% net return.

There is no call for intervention from the Republican side except from McCain and Graham, two outcasts who speak more for Obama than for the Republican Party.
You don't get to decide who's an outcast and who's the leadership of your party. Currently McCain and Graham are both prominent leaders in the GOP, you own them. Don't blame me your party's all fcked up, I've offered you alternatives. I know you wish Paul was the face of the GOP but the party's a long ways away from that:

"In late July, Paul proposed a Senate amendment to halt the $1.5 billion in promised U.S. aid to Egypt until the military renounces power and allows new elections. He argued that the Foreign Assistance Act barred the transfer of American aid to “any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by a military coup or decree.”

Paul’s proposal failed dramatically; only 13 senators supported the measure."

but 'taking a stand'? lying about the cost is taking a stand?
no wonder only 24% of us will admit to being a republican.
They are not lying about the increased cost why do you think employers here in Indiana are dropping their employer sponsered health Insurance and the only ones that wont be paying is the ones that dont pay taxes now and the ones that dont and cant afford to buy health Insurance will be paying too because of the penalty or the fine(Individual Mandate) in Obamacare which is a tax according to the SCOTUS and Yes I am a registered Democrat not a Pseudo Liberal Demcorat.

It would have been far better to allow Mubarak to grow old and die, probably sooner rather than later.
Y'all can't decide if he's extremely weak or all-powerful, can't have it both ways. His comments didn't start, escalate or in any other way change the outcome. If we had intervened in our usual manner there's no way Morsi would have won and you should know that. That we didn't intervene I see as a bright spot in decades of dismal US foreign policy.

The ObamaKKKare legislation contained very specific implementation dates.
Obviously none of your friends are successful enough to feel the ObamaKKKare tax bite.
Bullshit Galt. The nations health care insurance-coverage racket was a behemoth sized Chinese fire drill that had to be fixed yet wasn't by Reagan-BushI-Clinton or BushII, how fkn long do you want to wait?

Obama blasts Republicans for obstruction to ACA implementation in weekly address

"A lot of Republicans seem to believe that if they can gum up the works and make this law fail, they’ll somehow be sticking it to me. But they’d just be sticking it to you."

Current low interest rates have a significant influence on the real estate market and those rates are bound to increase.

So? The correct question was why did we have a consulate and CIA base in Benghazi? What constitutional authority did the Executive branch have to establish and maintain them?

You should probably stick to birth certificates and other such trivial nonsense.

McCain needed help from Sarah Palin to barely save his ass in the 2010 primary. Graham will get the boot in the 2014 primary.

Galt disagrees with you with respect to Obama helping to precipitate the revolution, but agrees that avoiding military intervention was a plus.

As I said previously,(I) and (L) are at a distinct disadvantage in my state__they are mostly removed from the primaries where, in many Florida districts, the action is.
I could vote for a Libertarian candidate if one came along in the general election that filled the bill. Not likely where I live though and I'm not going to skip the primary season where I can vote against right wing scum and teaturds.
There was an opportunity in Louisiana which went from a lady (D) to an unknown, brown,(R) and also in NOLA where the black voters were absent and the white voters are "flexible."
I'm not going to convince you. You're convinced that you're powerless against both parties therefore you can only chose the lesser of two evils.

Do you not see the inherent discontinuity between that and the founding principles of this country? None of their "authority" derives from any constitutional authority. As long as we play along we abet their criminality.

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship like Obama wanna be.

The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty; 1776
From liberty to abundance; (Reagan)
From abundance to complacency; (Bill Clinton womanizer)
From complacency to apathy; (Obamaville)
From apathy to dependence in Obama
From dependence in Obama back into dictatorship.
