<quoted text>LOL, we see all that "tolerance" like when Petreus was harrassed last week or the time that Minuteman was attacked at Columbia, when anyone tries to speak out against illegal immigration or criticizes the President (instantly labeled racist).
As typical, elitist Liberals only tolerate opinions that agree with theirs and have a disdain for those who are religious, patriotic and virtuous.
The liberal mindset has destroyed the minority family and mocked marriage unless between the same sex.
Winston Churchill also said,
“Show me a young Conservative and I'll show you someone with no heart. Show me an old Liberal and I'll show you someone with no brains.”
When people are not coddled and live in the real world, their viewpoints become less kumbya. Your definitions are what liberals are supposed to be and not what modern American liberals tend to be.
Thank you. The firm agrees.

The Syrian ruler calmly told Fox meanwhile that his government was willing to get rid of its chemical weapons but it would be a very complicated operation that would take about a year or more and cost around $1 billion.

After analyzing his comments, Western intelligence experts told debkafile they had reached two conclusions:

1. That Assad drew a distinction between his operational chemical arsenal and the stockpiles of those weapons. He is apparently willing to let the first category go, but determined to keep the stocks.

2. His manner was confident verging on cocky, showing he felt certain that he would not be deprived of his chemical capabilities for coming out on top of the Syrian civil war.
He had no qualms about denying his forces were responsible for the Aug. 21 attack on districts east of Damascus, fully backed by the perseverance of Russian officials in pinning the blame on the rebels.
As excerpts of his Fox interview were aired, Assad received Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov in Damascus at the head of a large Russian delegation of military and intelligence officers. He used the occasion to complain that he was caught in a cruel vice between al Qaeda and US pressure and expressed the hope that Moscow would be able to “draw a new map of global balance.”

As the Kerry-Lavrov deal falls apart, it turns out to have been less an agreement and more a loose compilation of limited understandings on the Syrian chemical question, which left unresolved sharp, fundamental disagreements between Washington on Moscow on how it should be handled, particularly at the UN Security Council.

None of this has stopped President Obama from selling the proposition to the American public and the world that the US-Russian accord for the disposal of Syria’s chemical weapons was a triumphant breakthrough for his administration’s diplomacy, which opened the door to an agreement for resolving the Iranian nuclear issue as well.

It's not about demeaning Obama, but about rejecting terrible programs like ObamaKKKare.
If you would stop listening to FOX commentary for a change you might actually be able to recognize the Affordable Care Act for the great program it is destined to become.

What I don't understand is how people like you think it is OK for insurance companies to deny coverage to those with preexisting conditions or to force low income people to go without preventative care or to force young people without parents to lose their coverage when they age out of foster care. "Cretins", that's all you are.

Chicago passed New York as America's murder capital in 2012 despite the Windy City only having a third of the Big Apple's population.
The FBI recorded 500 murders in Chicago in 2012, up from 431 in 2011. New York reported 419 murders in 2012, down from 515 the year before.
However, on a per-capita basis, the bureau reported that Flint, Michigan was more dangerous than the two larger cities. One in every 1,613 residents of Flint were murder victims last year, as the city of 101,558 reported 63 murders in 2012.
The shooters in most of these gang murders are known in the neighborhood, but the "no snitch" philosophy and threat of violence prevents any cooperation with police. Instead, they enact "street justice", like animals in the jungle.

Let them eat each other.

Obama’s climb-down on Syria attack spells “military nightmare” for allies Israel, Turkey, Jordan US President Barack Obama’s about-turn Saturday night, Aug. 31 on the planned US military operation against Syria’s chemical weapons has shaken up the volatile Middle East balance of strength, spelling for Israel, Jordan and Turkey what Western and Israeli military sources called the day after “a military nightmare.”
Syria, Iran and Hizballah are let off the hook by the lifting of the imminent US military threat against Bashar Assad over his use of chemical weapons on Aug. 21. Not only that, but the threesome have won an unforeseen tactical advantage: President Obama’s turn to Congress to authorize that attack gives them at least a fortnight for launching a pre-emptive strike against US forces and its allies.
Syria and Hizballah’s defenses are already upgraded against the projected US strike and their forces on peak readiness. Rather than hanging around and waiting for the US Congress to go through with a debate, which only starts in the week of Sept. 9, they are fully capable of forcing the pace on their own terms, with the object of getting the US operation cancelled altogether.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, for his part, will not waste the opportunity for pursuing further advanced weapons transactions with Iran and Syria.

A high-ranking Israeli office commented Sunday that the three hostile allies, having achieved an indefinite postponement of the American military threat with Moscow’s help, can be expected to press their advantage with further diplomatic and military mischief. Trouble looms for Israel, Jordan and Turkey if Russian and Iranian intelligence experts estimate that an aggressive move will strengthen the hands of the US lawmakers opposed to US military intervention in Syria.

Syria's allies may deduce that high war flames in the Middle East will stoke the anti-military congressional faction’s pressure on the administration to keep American out of the region. They will argue that even the very limited action proposed by Obama would be enough to drag America deep into the Syrian mire.

It's worth noting that the US continues to pay for that war in veterans disability payments and medical services/benefits. Perhaps your familiar with the Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
God won't you learn to read. She said the war for America was over in 1973. Which it was. The helicopters over Saigon in 1975 was at the Embassy as we were pulling the staff and guards out. They brought as many Vietnamese as they could. America won the Vietnam war but the Democrats refused to support the South Vietnamese Army once will were gone.

Police should not be paramilitary agencies and should not have paramilitary killer squads like SWAT.

Police should also be prohibited from using chemical weapons, just like Assad.

Police officers should also be tested for drugs on a random basis, including steroids, obviously widely used by cops.

It's a welfare ponzi scheme that will collapse under it's own weight. It will destroy medical care in this country. It will also destroy the insurance industry also.
