Both speculations are false.
That comes as a surprise?

The liberal media is perhaps the biggest threat to our republic - even more than liberals who are their parrots and the leaders they help to elect.

You should have deleted that last one. But I'm sure you forwarded it to as many people as you possibly could. Rightwingers love to spread lies, rumors, and innuendo. Oh and pass opinion off as fact. Oh and make crazy predictions.

Let's put it in simplisTic terms then.
LIBYA did NOT attack us.
We had NO business stepping foot in Libya, aiding and abetting al-islam and to failed statehood conditions, that has now spread to Syria like the plague that it is.
IRAN now has a democratic voting process in place.
We are NOT the United Police of America, OR the United Nations.
We are the United STATES of America-subjected to international LAWS just as anyone else is.
In other words, Opotus needs to step back over onto his OWN side of lines, and quit trying to bully others...and work FOR AMERICA, NOT against it.
Or let someone that doesn't have problems doing that-do the job thereof.

Ted Nugent; rock star and avid bow hunter from Michigan, was being interviewed by a liberal journalist who also happens to be an animal rights activist. The discussion came around to deer hunting. The journalist asked, "What do you think is the last thought in the head of a deer before you shoot him? Is it,'Are you my friend?' or is it 'Are you the one who killed my brother?'"

Nugent replied, "Deer aren't capable of that kind of thinking. All they care about is what am I going to eat next, who am I going to screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. They are very much like the Democrats in Congress."

The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January 1st is supposed to be "hidden" from the consumer,but it's been brought to the public's attention by hunting and fishing store Cabela's who have refused to hide it and are showing it as a separate line item tax on their receipts, the email states. I did some research and found directly from the IRS's website information that PROVES this to be true and an accurate portrayal of something hidden in "Obamacare" that I was not aware of! Now being skeptical of this I went to the IRS website and found this! Q1.
What is the medical device excise tax? A1. Section 4191 of the Internal Revenue Code
imposes an excise tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer or importer of the device.
Q2. When does the tax go into effect? A2. The tax applies to sales of taxable medical devices after Dec. 31, 2012.
Q3. How much is the tax? A3. The tax is 2.3 percent of the sale price of the taxable medical device. See Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510, Excise Taxes, and Notice 2012-77 for additional information on the determination of sale price.
IRS.gov
So being more curious I clicked on "Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510." And what do I find under "MEDICAL DEVICES" under "MANUFACTURERS TAXES"? The following discussion of manufacturers taxes applies to the tax on: Guns and amo; Sport fishing equipment; Fishing rods and fishing poles; Electric outboard motors; Fishing tackle boxes; Bows, quivers, broadheads, and points; Arrow shafts; Coal; Taxable tires; Gas guzzler automobiles; and Vaccines. IRS.gov I think we have definitely been fooled, if we believe that the Affordable Care Act is all about health care. It truly does appear to be nothing more than a bill laden with a whole lot of taxes that we the people have yet to be aware of.
Please pass this on . I am still incredulous that this can go on .Where is our press ? I guess it’s just like Nancy Pelosi said…….We have to pass it to see what is in it . What is next? What else is there we do not know about? I am sick to death about our government
Who duped you with this one?

Tell me it wasn't an e-mail.
