A gallon of gas cost under $2.00 when Bush left office. It's now about $4.00 and has been since Obama took office. Thanks Obama.

Caught you in yet another lie, smoky.
""Neither former President George H.W. Bush nor his son, former President George W. Bush, will attend Wednesday's 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech due to health issues, spokesman for both told Secrets.
The 41st president is well, but generally restricted to a wheelchair, making attendance at the Lincoln Memorial event difficult. The invitation to the 43rd president came as he was undergoing a heart procedure that was going to require some rest.
Presidents Obama, Carter and Clinton do plan to attend the event Wednesday afternoon, making the "March on Washington" a Democratic event — and a security nightmare.
Freddy Ford, George W. Bush's spokesman, said that the president is "absolutely grateful" for being invited and regrets not being able to attend, but he is still getting better after doctors inserted a stent in a blocked heart artery earlier this month.
"He's recovering one day at a time," said Ford.""

----------
You obviously didn't know that, so you lied instead.
Funny how you deny being a liar, in spite of being caught in hundreds of lies here by so many.
Bush returned to his normal activities the very next day after having the stent procedure. It's pretty obvious he was just making a lame excuse because he didn't want to attend the event honoring MLK.

Even Fox is losing audience hand over fist, why because its a so called news service designed to appeal to grumpy old white men & women. Only one problem with that, like tea baggers they fall off the perch & no one cares either.
I say either kill the Geese that lay the golden eggs after you redistribute the eggs or ship them off to Zimbabwe where that's already been done and there are no longer any eggs.

Stop right there. No, you don't.
If Al Qaeda wins and takes control of Syria, they will have chemical weapons to use against us in their terrorist attacks that are certain to continue. If you've been keeping up with current events, you know that Al Qaeda went from hiding in caves to taking over countries since Obama took office.
We don't think there are chemical weapons in Syria. We KNOW there are chemical weapons in Syria.
We also know that if Al Qaeda takes over Syria, AL Qaeda will have chemical weapons to use against us.
So, now the question you ran away from all day yesterday:
Who here wants to get Americans killed helping Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons?
That's the bottom line.
Step right up and tell us if you want to get Americans killed helping Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons.
I'm going to hate myself for this because I believe you are batshit crazy, but you have a point here. No one wants to stand by and watch innocent children murdered but let's be honest, this is about oil. In 1994 in Rwanda 500,000 people were slaughtered and we didn't intervene. That said, these are real WMD's but do we have anything to gain by taking sides in a family fight? Usually it ends up with both sides turning on you, an almost certainty here.
The problem we have now is Obama's "red line" comment. That was a mistake. It was too specific and requires action. Veiled threats leave a way out and accomplish the same result, too late for that though.
That leaves us with choosing a target, logically the chemical cache, but that has serious consequences. Chemical weapons would not just harmlessly vaporize in an attack. If hit by US munitions, chemical dumps could release some poisons into the air. And, air strikes against chemical depots could allow extremist rebel factions access to any remaining stocks.
The only cover I see is through the UN. They are supposed to be the world's police, not us.

<quoted text>O'bama telling the world he is going to war--who does that? no surprise, no exit plan, no plan at all. The liberal war mongerer with the Peace prize. Let the Syrians kill the terrorists that O'bama supports.
Yeah right like when Obama settled the Libyan war without lost of one American life in the line of fire. Obtained objective within months. Sends a virus to Iran rather than boots. Something the republican military industrials were promoting. Obtained the terrorist objective[ Osama Bin Laden] in less than two years without archaic republican torture chambers. Yeah you really are on the ball. DUH…..!
Mean while back at the ranch. Talk of 1773 reemerging as the fall months arrive.
How about the Budget??
Well, well here we go again. Intoxicated Tea pirates will once again seek to hold our nation hostage for a ransom. It’s the only political leadership they have. Debates, arguments and compromise, they have demonstrated time and time again, they lack the political savvy or education to follow our democracy in favor of anarchist ideologies.“Our way or the highway.”
In the past they have lowered our nations credit rating which cost taxpayers $Billions more in interest payments increases, thus raising the debt! Balancing the budget is the least on their minds. Failure of our democracy is their primary objective. Observe after all these years and they still do not have a plan to stabilize or reduce the national debt. That alone speaks volumes of the nature of their black hearts.
Redundant failed past strategy is what the intoxicated Tea Party considers a winning solution?? Anchoring their demands on reducing Health Care for the elderly as President Obama seeks to raise taxes on the 1% and some elitist corporations that pay taxes equal to the common citizen or even less than average citizen.
Taking advantage of our Democracy’s infrastructures,… to build their empires,… without sharing it with the laborers that made it possible for them. The 1% accumulating over 33% of all national wealth and the 10% absorbing 80% of the national income. 90% of us have 20% to make due??
Republicans solution: Let the ever increasing numbers of the impoverish die. Simply by removing any subsides that supports their existence. Food, water, fuel, Health Care, education, etc. etc. That is the bottom line of the republicans agendas.
Democrats seek to have the economics of the laborers productivity more evenly distributed with the ideology of “Leave No One Behind”.
Sen. Boehner and McConnell lead the pirates in their endeavors to hold the nation captive.
A rift has been growing within the republican party that no longer support the archaic ideologies of their extremist Tea Party nuts. Senators Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Bob Corker of Tennessee, John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, John Hoeven of North Dakota, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Dan Coats of Indiana. Just to name a few senators, as well as an increasing number of republican governors.
Will the core of the traditionalist conservative republicans mount a a 1773 attack on the Tea and gather it up and cast out unto the waters of oblivion before its too late? Will the Tea Nuts, drive another nail into the republicans political coffin?
Stay tuned for the upcoming events….

What oil? I say; let the Russians handle it. Our going in there and bombing that rubble to smithereens won't solve a thing and Assad won't resign. Maybe the threat of it will cause talks to begin.

So, what you want to do is send a message to the world that the United States no longer cares about the rest of the world and stands with Russia and China? Now, there's something that will really undermine our status in the world.
That said, Britain is willing to go it alone if necessary stating,
"This is the first use of chemical warfare in the 21st century. It has to be unacceptable. We have to confront something that is a war crime, something that is a crime against humanity."
I believe we have an obligation as a member of the United Nations to participate in any international military response. History has shown us that resolutions alone don't work. All one has to do is take a look at all the resolutions condemning Israel for her human rights violations to see how little they matter.
I thought that Cameron was overruled on that?

I think you're on to something. I know I am afraid to go into Jewish neighborhoods and hate when they buy homes in Christian neighborhoods. Property values immediately drop as the crime rate jumps up.

69% of home sales are cash in S. Florida

Across the state, 66 percent of home sales were cash, compared with the national rate of 40 percent. One expert called Florida's rate "astounding."

With one of the nation's highest foreclosure rates, South Florida has a large supply of bank-owned properties. Lenders aren't interested in waiting for traditional buyers to qualify for mortgages, preferring instead to sell to investors paying cash.

And that has virtually shut out entry-level homebuyers.

"That's where all the action is," said Lex Levinrad, founder of the Distressed Real Estate Institute, a Deerfield Beach-based club for investors. "The banks have an urgent need to get these bad loans off their books as soon as possible. They're willing to sell for 30 percent less to a cash buyer rather than waiting for a buyer with a mortgage

Just for the sake of argument, let's say it's true... You better look at the instructions given a patient, after stints are put in. I for one am glad he didn't attend a 'celebration' for a philanderer. Better read history in the raw. Because that's what it is.

Zimmerman expressed uncertainty about the future of their relationship when asked if they are still together.

"I'm not going to answer that," Shellie Zimmerman said. "Of course I want to have children and stay married..."

"With George?" journalist Christi O'Connor asks in the interview Thursday on Good Morning America.

"That's something I'm going to have think about," Shellie Zimmerman responds.

We have been pretty much gypsies for past year and a half," Shellie Zimmerman said. "We lived in a 20- foot trailer in the woods, scared every night that someone was going to find us and that it would be horrific

She revealed she wasn't home the night George confronted Trayvon because they had an arguement earlier that day and she was staying with her father.

The price of oil has already jumped up because of the threat of escalated conflict in Syria. I agree that bombing anything in Syria doesn't solve anything, in fact, it only generates more enemies and ungrateful temporary friends.
No one, not us or the Russians, can handle the chaos in the Middle East.
