No one can predict when a person may snap; and, even if someone thought he was acting weird; the police can't pick up every whack job for acting weird. Otherwise all of you nutjobs would be locked up.
It was a terrible, heinous crime. If he didn't have a gun; maybe those people would be alive today.
What does it matter? You sound like Hillary. Naw, it doesn't matter, unless you Recihtards can use it for political purposes. Nothing else "matters" to you, Reichtard.

so how does a 'failure' get elected? twice?

seeing as how most of you old white people live in a delusional world where white people are in charge, i'm just curious.

Why Republicans Are Starting to Love Health Reform
Turns out a lot of Republicans love Obamacare. Or at least, they like coverage for their kids, health-care rebates and a ban on denying coverage for preexisting conditions.

"victim disarmament zones"

I like that term!

I was thinking: you know those "No Gun Allowed" signs they put on stores, turning then into "victim disarmament zones"?

What if we come up with signs business can put up saying the opposite like "victim protection zone" or something like that?

Will the NRA be interfere in some signs that warn Liberal criminal that there are armed Conservatives in the area?

Do you think Obama is still going to trust Putin (who supplies Assad with weapons) to get rid of the chemical weapons after another "especially nasty" WMD was just unleashed the other day?
And what is Obama's move now? Even if Putin wants Assad to remain in power rather than al Qaeda, would you trust him?
And what if Assad is the one unleashing the WMDs and Putin and Assad are just testing Obama's resolve? Even worse, trying to lure him into a showdown?
Do you believe Putin is trying to become the new leading world power by his influence and allies in the Middle East?
Putin is trying to lure Vallerie Jarrett into starting a war.
The fact is, the United States has no credibility in the world. Everyone knows Obama isn't in charge of anything. And, everyone agreed with Putin when he called the Secretary of State of the United States a liar on the world's stage.
What that means is, nothing the United States says will be taken seriously by any country.

The Obama administration has made us more isolated in the world than ever before. Any action we take, we will be alone. That is easy pickings.

Because the only likely outcome of the Assad government falling is Al Qaeda taking over Syria, the obvious conclusion should be we should just stay out of it.

If we had a competent leader, we wouldn't have stumbled into this obvious trap and we would have some respect and support in the world. And, we would have an option other than starting a war to deal with the situation.

We were doomed the minute the Obama administration joined Al Qaeda. This is merely fallout from that decision.

No, they're not doing their jobs you insufferable twit! They're wasting time and taxpayer money flogging a dead horse. Congress has gotten all the information that's out there and there's no evidence of any kind of cover-up of any kind. This is a blatantly partisan witch hunt whose only purpose is to damage Hillary Clinton for 2016. The Republicans are using taxpayer money to further their own partisan goals. Fortunately most of the American people aren't as stupid as you are.
Tell that to the victims' families and the survivors who were polygraphed to make sure they weren't saying anything to the press.

Better yet, call them insufferable twits.

When have the democrats ever governed for the will of the people during this O'bama administration?
Yes, the GOP wants the military side of Government to be safe from democracy and the real social needs of the people.

You are better off just sticking to posting your copy & paste propaganda zippy. Every time you get into a debate, you end up looking more and more like the fool you are.
yes, if taking over is protecting a country that you support from a military strike that would send the wrong message to the other countries you support, then you nailed it.

Nidal Hasan (the Ft. Hood shooter) lived in either Virginia (his state of residence prior to being sent to Ft. Hood) or Texas, neither of which has partisan registration. Therefore the claim that he was a "registered Democrat" is false. I do not know if he voted or how he voted, but I do know that unless he was registered in a state in which he did not reside, that the claim that he is a registered Democrat is FALSE.

and so forth.....
but let's see you cite a right wing email that's been debunked so many times it should be in the FOX hall of fame.
If you want to get away with anything and not have to worry about being held accountable for anything, call yourself a liberal democrat. Works every time.

As long as the media continues to pretend Obama is actually in charge on anything, Vallerie Jarrett is out of reach.
... well, until some different faction moves into the White House and discovers all the treason going on there today. Given the murderous episodes we've witnessed the White House cover up, there is likely hanging offenses happening.
It isn't likely those who are committing hanging offenses will every give up the position they now have and allow a subsequent authority investigate and expose them, try them, and execute those convicted.

They have no intention of ever leaving the White House and giving up that authority.

You must be overjoyed that Obama outsmarted the warmongers John McCain, Lindsey Graham , and James Inhofe with John Kerry 's smart diplomacy to get Russia and Assad to disarm themselves of chemical weapons in Syria with United Nations help. It saves the U S from having to get more directly militarily involved in Syria , and brings China and Iran on board with Europe and the United States to negotiate an end to the civil war . Hooray for Obama's America and smart power!

Climate Panel Cites Near Certainty on Warming
The draft comes from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a body of several hundred scientists that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, along with Al Gore. Its summaries, published every five or six years, are considered the definitive assessment of the risks of climate change, and they influence the actions of governments around the world. Hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent on efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions, for instance, largely on the basis of the groupís findings.
