Al Qaeda benefits from use of chemical weapons because it drags the US into the civil war on their side, thus the logical conclusion that Al Qaeda may have used such weapons themselves.
Maybe supplied by Obama....to justify our involvement
Just before all of this broke wide open, I made a comment about how I have not seen the movie "Wag the Dog" listed on any movie channel for a long time, actually since Obama took office.
Perhaps they knew something like this was going to happen with a Democrat in office. I recall seeing it often listed while Bush was in office.
I do believe taking that movie off the available-to-watch list is them exhibiting evidence of projection.

I'd easily be convinced this whole scenario is some kind of conspiracy to get the US involved in Syria and tip the scales in favor of Al Qaeda. It seems to be the simplest solution.

Gotta love McDonald's!

Detroit-area MCDONALD'S forced to CLOSE because of labor protests and demands for DOUBLE WAGES. Almost overnight, "Micro-Unions" have suddenly been approved by the Obama administration's National Labor Relations Board. Micro-unions mean even a small group of employees can unionize themselves in ANY business. The strategy is designed to UNIONIZE minimum-wage FAST FOOD restaurants. Instead of being bullied, McDonald's is just closing the outlet. ALL JOBS LOST.

From CBS in Detroit:

A local McDonald’s restaurant was forced to close after its employees walked out and hundreds gathered outside to protest for higher wages.

The restaurant on 8 Mile and Lahser roads along the Detroit/Southfield city line was just one location locally where fast food workers are participating in a nationwide “walkout for better wages.”

Over 200 protestors crowded the restaurant, carrying signs that read “We are worth more. Strike for 15,” as in $15 an hour.

Terrance Collins told WWJ’s Vickie Thomas he has worked at McDonald’s for a few years, and has been struggling ever since.

“I started off making $7.40, they gave me a manager position and raised that to $7.75. When they took my manager position, they dropped me back down to $7.40, and I have two kids to put on top of that that I’m trying to support. And the ends still doesn’t meet so no, it’s not a comfortable living,” he said.

Other employees shared Collins’ views.

“It’s a very uncomfortable lifestyle working for $7.40 at McDonald’s when McDonald’s made like $500 billion last year,” one protestor said.

“We’re out here fighting to raise the minimum wage and get rid of $7.40 because $7.40 an hour is not enough to take care of our kids and our families and we want to, you know, get the raise up to $15,” another protestor said."

1995, 19096, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 - WTF did Republicans who were basically running Congress do?
Probably the same thing Democrats did after HillaryCare bombed during Clinton's second year.

And I actually criticize Republicans for not picking up the mantle when they had the opportunity during Clinton's last six years.

The only reason I held out hope for Bill Clinton was because he promised to solve this crisis.

I've been waiting for a solution for a very long time.

But when the time finally arrived again, Democrats decided it would be done their and Obama's way and Republicans weren't invited to the table - even though their solutions would have brought down the costs of health care - which is the huge oversized pink elephant still in the room.

Yeah, this health care reform bill is going to work out just fine. Like a charm.

Anytime any president addresses a group of loyal followers and tells them they should "punish our enemies" and he's not talking about foreign enemies...we're in deep doo-doo.
Imagine if President Bush spoke in front of an audience of loyal conservatives and had even implied liberals were the "enemy".
My first reaction would be "WHAT enemies??" I would have been appalled and quite upset.
Bush would have never gotten away with saying something like that though. The liberal media would have chewed him up and spit him out 24/7.
He would have been vilified long before Congressional Democrats became weasels and left him to hang out to dry for personal and political gain after the Iraq War.
But liberals and the liberal media have no problem with the rest of us being called the "enemy". And why Homeland Security had no problem putting the Tea Party on the "enemies list". And why the IRS felt justified in targeting the "enemy". And why liberals call the "enemy" racists.
And why we're in such deep doo-doo.
So, you've just unintentionally called yourself dumb, deaf &, blind! Obviously, because you act like you don't hear all the threats thrown at Obama from your type. Right before &, right after the election, a few folks on this thread was saying some pretty derogatory things with hateful &, harmful intentions &, for you to pretend you didn't hear them, aligns you right beside them so, stop acting surprised. Y'all labeled him the enemy first, using conspiracy theories as evidence to back up faulty claims. Now you don't like it when you're being labeled, racist, hate mongering, American terrorist!

You're a freaking liar! Those laws you speak of, are few &, far stretched across the nation. Here in Jersey, there are no laws to prevent unjustified behavior. An employee needs no reason to get rid of an employee as long as their reason doesn't break any federal laws. Basically giving the worker no voice at all. Unions prevent such things. A employer can not fire an employee without justified reasoning or, face lawsuits out the ass, along with boycotting &, other means of applying pressure to seek justice. Why else would employers not want unions involved? The employees pay union fees for the union, not the employer. If all was justified, it really shouldn't bother the employer at all.
yup

McDonald's is well aware that their business is extremely cost/price sensitive and that even relatively minor price increases will seriously impact their business.

Protestors ignore that fact that most fast food outlets are franchises and that the local small business owner operates on a relatively small profit margin.

ABORTION AMERICA'S #1 KILLER

by Pastor Greg Wilson

There is currently at work in our nation a most dangerous killer. It consistently takes more lives than any disease, famine, or war we have ever faced.

Every month this killer takes more American lives than were lost in the entire Vietnam War. Every six months more die from its relentless onslaught than in all our previous wars combined or in all the fatal automobile accidents of the past twenty years. Every 2 to 3 years it claims more victims than the Nazi Holocaust.

WITCH ONE IS MORE A EVIL KILLER/ KILLING BABIES OR ADULTS?

TWO EVILS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT!

God will not hold this nation guiltless for this great bloodbath. Indeed, the Bible tells us that He hates “hands that shed innocent blood”(Proverbs 6:16-17). Certainly, there can be none more innocent than the unborn.

Abortion advocates ignore these innocent victims of abortion. Testimony given at U.S. government sponsored public hearings indicated that in the so-called family planning clinics:“The baby is dehumanized as much as possible by being termed a ‘blob,’‘products of conception’ or ‘uterine contents.’ Not even the term fetus is used by counselors.”

God however has a different view of the unborn. He told the prophet Jeremiah,“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”(Jeremiah 1:5). He said of John the Baptist:“For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.”(Luke 1:15). Clearly, God views the unborn as human and precious.

You & DBwriter lie on instinct. It's pathetic. Here's a clue, more than 80 = less than 20. It doesn't matter because, you're lying any damn ways!
