Obama's planned attack on Syria has 31% public support.

Of course, 31% of Americans would commit suicide if told to do so by Lord Obama.

What a load. Tom Coburn will say anything; he's a liar.
Pretty sure a lot of people are thinking the same thing.

But some republicans are denying this is a commonly shared opinion within the party.

It's better, I'm pretty sure they think, to let the dam break and the floods come.

They can clean up the mess a lot easier afterwards. And avoid being called racists.

Sometimes it's better for some people to learn things the hard way.

McDonald's employees are much more service oriented than the slugs at the Post Office.
Actually i made an error. McDonald's, Burger King, etc don't actually flip burgers anymore. They nuke them already precooked. So $15 an hour to stick something in the microwave is insane!!!

Nice response to being shown what an idiot you were to believe a spammed email.
The worst part is that after seeing these debunked over & over, you are still dumb enough to keep believing them.
Would you rather keep YOUR mom on painkillers instead of her getting the surgery to stop the pain?

Obama said that might be a better solution.

<quoted text> Sorry, Obamacare is getting rid of the benefits for most at Olive Garden and similar places. You said spend millions on buildings and advertizing and putting minimum wage people in front of your customers was a bad idea. I proved you wrong. In places like libtard center of the universe California they are trying to make a TIPS part of the bill, automatically. I turn around and leave any establishment that adds the TIPS to the bill no matter the service.
TIPS = To Insure Prompt Service, not I don't pay my employees enough so you have to make up the difference no matter how bad the service sucks!!!!
No, that's a business decision.

<quoted text> Well, you know, facts get in his way all the time.
Flack now wants to pay postal workers minimum wage.

You do understand that the PostOffice is not an ordinary business, right?

You to realize that Congress changed the way it funds its pensions so that it must prepay them 75 years in the future? That this is the main cause of their problems?

You do realize that attempts to streamline were blocked by Congress right?

But hey, you & Galt keep blaming the workers & think that paying them minimum wage is the answer.

The original immigrants to Australia were all criminals!
AUTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER TELLS THE MUSLIMS EITHER ACCEPT US OR LEAVE FOR ANOTHER COUNTRY: This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by the millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly ENGLISH, not, Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society..LEARN THE LANGUAGE!

Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian Principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented.

It is certainly appropriate to display it on our walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.

We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept OURS AND LIVE in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.

THIS IS OUR COUNTRY, OUR CULTURE AND OUR LIFESTYLE, we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this.

But once YOU ARE DONE complaining, whining, and griping about our Flag, our Pledge, Our Christian Beliefs or OUR WAY OF LIFE, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great Australian freedom. THE RIGHT TO LEAVE!

If you aren't happy here then LEAVE! We didn't force you too come here. So accept the country you accepted.

WOW, finally a Leader who places His Country, His God, before any other gods. I wonder why the USA, Canada and other countries don't do the same? When in Rome you do as the Romans..is a famous quote.

Trust me if you go to any Arab country, you have to dress the way the women dress there or else you are jailed, tortured, whipped and who knows what else might happen to you. I will not travel to any of those countries and we are told to stay away..with reason.

O'bama really did quit. He sat on Oprah's couch with that moose he calls his wife and said "I will not run for President, I care about the people of Illinois, they deserve the representation that they elected me for." Ha ha ha.

Since Obama has been occupying the white House a smaller percentage of the working age population is employed. Obama claims to be the champion of the middle class,yet the middle class has been decimated and the quality of our jobs has declined to a point that most new hires are part time. Obama has poured hundreds of billions into the pockets of donors at Fanny and Freddy and to leaders in the banking industry,why is the home ownership rate the lowest that it has been in 18 years? Why has the number of Americans on food stamps increased by 50 percent while Obama has been in the White House? Why has the national debt gotten more than seven trillion dollars larger during the Obama era,after Obama promised to cut the debt in half? Obama should be apologizing to the American voters for all his lies and corruption.
the IRS will have the power to shut down companies that don't want O'bamacare--the IRS sanctioned by the O'bama plan with the democrats will shut down business after business with O'bamacare fines. What difference does it make to the democrats? NONE--as long as their constituents are getting medicated.

Some of the early immigrants to Australia were vagrants and debtors. Some were orphans and others had various reasons to immigrate. It is obviously never correct to say that they were "all" criminals,just because some were.

Something that I've been thinking about.
Why are we fighting a fire out in the middle of no where? When these fires happen why don't they concentrate the fire crews around buildings and such instead of out in the middle of nowhere? Why are fire breaks not required around all structures built in the woods? Before man was around who put out these fires? If these fires were allowed to burn freely (except around homes) there would be far fewer of them over time. Not allowing the deadwood to be burned off only makes these fires more intense.
Environmentalists hate fire breaks and proper forest management.

We're not in Kansas anymore. We're somewhere over the liberal rainbow because they truly do believe in a land called Utopia where everyone is exactly the same as everyone else.

And Obama is their Oz.

Depends on the age of the person. A person in his/her late 80
s and 90's may not be able to handle surgery. Many doctors won't perform surgery on an elderly patient for that reason. It's a matter of keeping the person comfortable and in as little pain as possible.

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) on Sunday said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) "doesn't know anything about healthcare" and questioned his suitability for higher office.
"Ted Cruz may be a very good politician, but he certainly does not know anything about health care," Dean said on CNN's "State of the Union."
The former governor called Cruz's plan for cross-state health insurance purchasing a "terrible idea," saying he wouldn't want Texas' insurance policies affecting Vermont's universal health care.
"So, these are crazy ideas from the far right," Dean said. "He's a slick spokesman and God help us if he ever does get to be anything more than the senator from Texas."
