Well then, we better start accepting that gratuitous violence is now another part of our declining morality and we can't be surprised when young people stop being stimulated by graphic videos and want to try it out in the real world.

"We" didn't give "Obama" shït... the "JEWS" gave him his "POWER". Look at most "so called" "successful" "African Americans"... I guarantee there's a "jew" near. Bill Cosby, Martin Luther King Jr., Richard Pryor, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, and on and on. Let "us" not forget the "JEWS" were the "Masters" of the "African" slave trade. Sure.. "white man" is known for "owning slaves", but it was the "jew" "who" "sold" him the "slave", just as they do "today".

Better than turning into a bowel of pudding.

Hey, Homer, do you like the classic songs like Fitzgerald and Bennett? They're playing in the background on Pandora as we speak. So relaxing and enjoyable.

Also, can you come help me pack if I end up moving? You didn't hear it from me, but I've been told by a reliable source our offer will likely be accepted.

So I'd like to get a heads up on your availability just in case.

Prison Quotas Push Lawmakers To Fill Beds, Derail Reform

After three violent inmates escaped from an Arizona private prison in July 2010, prompting a two-week, multi-state manhunt, state corrections officials demanded improvements and stopped sending new inmates to what they called a "dysfunctional" 3,300-bed facility.

Less than a year later, the company that runs the prison, Management & Training Corp., threatened to sue the state. A line in their contract guaranteed that the prison would remain 97 percent full. They argued they had lost nearly $10 million from the reduced inmate population.

State officials renegotiated the contract, but ended up paying $3 million for empty beds as the company continued to address problems, according to state documents and local news accounts.

Well, if you're implying Johnson should have ended that war before it began - or at least before he accelerated it because of his ego - I agree with you.

Obama couldn't say enough about the debt ceiling being poor management on the part of the government when he was a wet-behind-the-ears senator. Now he's a wet-behind-the-ears president.

He needs to make up his mind - on just about everything. And stop lying to us.

"Egypt troops storm Islamist stronghold near Cairo
Email this Story

Sep 19, 12:39 PM (ET)

By AHMED ABDEL-FATTAH and MOHAMMED WAGDY

KERDASA, Egypt (AP)- Egyptian security forces backed by armored fighting vehicles and helicopters stormed a tourist town near the Great Pyramids that became an Islamist stronghold on Thursday, the latest in a stepped up campaign by the military-backed government to put down armed supporters of the ousted president.

As they moved into Kerdasa at around 6 a.m., the troops and policemen came under barrages of fire from gunmen on rooftops. Militants took control of the town just outside Cairo more than a month ago amid a nationwide backlash of violence by Islamists enraged by the military coup that removed President Mohammed Morsi and by a crackdown against his supporters that followed...."

how depressing that you must have a separate hard drive to store all the old posts that you think are worth keeping. and if you're going to quote me stop editing or i'm going to have my lawyer send you a C&D letter.
We had no idea Legal Aid provided lawyers would do that? You must be one of those who are against free speech unless it agrees with your liberal views like a good little Obammmytron.

And if you were ever NOT posting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we'd think you were of those clueless twit college students harassing General Petraeus or one of the unwashed thugs moving back into an OWS parks.

In one of the most sickening displays of disrespect toward a veteran since the Vietnam War, students swore at and harassed retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, who recently began teaching a class at the City University of New York.

A video posted on YouTube titled “CUNY Students Confront War Criminal David Petraeus” shows Petraeus walking through a gauntlet of students who aggressively taunt him for close to 90 seconds.

“There’s blood all over you, I can smell it,” one student yells.

Petraeus, who served as the top U.S. commander in both Iraq and Afghanistan, takes the abuse stoically despite attempts by the students to provoke him.

It is not clear if the taunting continued after the end of the video.

The guy started and supported programs to help empower local Iraqi’s from preventing terrorist affiliated militants from executing old men in streets and bombing funerals. Sounds like a war criminal to me. No one is beyond reproach, but mob tactics and sophomoric University students who are still living off of daddy’s pocketbook are not to be taken seriously and are worthless entries into any civil debate.

This is what it’s like for so many service members. They stand up and fight for those that won’t. This man is a sheep dog, these kids are sheep. No sheep likes a sheep dog until the wolves come. The fact that these children have a strong leftist opinion, is a direct reflection of the universities professors. The children being educated on their parents dime can only use facts and statistics provided to them by the institution and the media. They simply cast blind judgment with no real world experience.(Like the College Professor President we currently have--no real world experience and hard left opinions as a result).
