Your stoopidity comes to the fore front one more time. No surprize. Congress for the most part specialize in pissing monies away. No way a dime of tax payer money should have been invested in government motors. Just like the green industry, if they can not survive and profit by their own efforts let them fade into the sunset.
Liberal loons like you son, do math like president nobama. He says he wants the debt limit to be raised by a trillion dollars and when he pisses that away it will not increase the deficit.

You are wasting your time with the likes of him, they wouldn't know what a good policy was even if they tripped over it. The posters in here from the Tea bagger side of politics only know how to complain, that is the limit of their critical thinking. Just say NO to everything and the country runs itself.
Pretty much...the least government is the best government...particularly with f*ck-ups like Obama in charge.

In a day marked by the clash between House Republicans and Sen. Ted Cruz over defunding Obamacare, Rep. Pete King (R-NY) had another message for the Texas senator: Mind your own business.
"We as House Republicans should stop letting Ted Cruz set our agenda for us," King said on CNN. "He should stay in the Senate, keep quiet. If he can deliver on this, fine. If he can't, he should keep quiet from now on and we shouldn't listen to him."
King's remarks reflected a widely held sentiment among House Republicans about how Cruz and others have pressured the lower chamber to pass a government spending bill that defunds Obamacare. King told CNN that that strategy was still destined to fail.
"I would just say if anything good comes from all of this, when Ted Cruz and Rand Paul or Mike Lee fail in the Senate next week, maybe finally we Republicans will have ended their influence," King said.
Elsewhere, a House GOP aide told National Review Online that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi "is more well-liked" than Cruz.

King is a New York RINO and a McCain warhawk, of no interest.

This clown wants to be the RINO candidate in 2016.

McCain is the leader of a pack of two, himself and his buddy Nancyboy.
Really sad to see a fine man stay too long and make a fool of himself.
I agree. McCain is a baboon. A complete idiot. The only one in politics worse than McCain, are Obama or any Democrat such as Stump Leg Hillary. Morons/Commie Dolts love these people.

That's an excellent question worth pondering. I was at Target today, they had a display of the new game that was picked clean. I was sickened.

Even more reason why that much money screws up this century's lottery winners' lives.
That story had nothing to do with the lottery. It was a homeless man who found a backpack with cash and travelers checks and turned it in to the police. The owner was so touched that she started a gofundit for him and people donated 98,000 to help him. It was phenomenal. But you sickening hateful people on here can't even imagine helping your fellow man. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. It's disgusting.

It’s almost 6 p.m. on a Friday and the tables near the bar at The Hamilton in downtown Washington are getting crowded. That means waitress Victoria Honard is busy.

Honard, 22, who graduated from Syracuse University in May, works about 25 hours a week at the restaurant while looking for a job related to public policy. She moved to Washington four days after graduation with the hope of finding a position at a think tank or policy-related organization, she said, and has applied to about 20 prospective employers.

“The response has been minimal,” said Honard, whose degree focused on education, health and human services.“There are two ways of looking at it. I could be extremely frustrated and be bitter, or I can make the most of it, and I’m trying to take the latter approach.”

Unemployment data appear to reflect big advances for women. The jobless rate in August for females 20 years and older was 6.3 percent, the lowest since December 2008, compared with 7.1 percent for men. As recently as January, the rate was 7.3 percent for both genders, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The downside is that the gains have been largely in lower-paying industries such as waitresses, in-home health care, food preparation and housekeeping. About 60 percent of the increase in employment for women from 2009 to 2012 was in jobs that pay less than $10.10 an hour, compared with 20 percent for men, according to a study by the National Women’s Law Center using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

I'm not in love with Target either, just needed an item and ran it because it was in my travels. Not much a fan of huge big box stores except for Costco and that took some getting used to, but they have quality meats and seafood, always fresh. Gas is cheaper there as well.

Roll that nugget around in your head for a while.

Does he think we're all stupid, or is he talking to his voting base (brain-dead, drooling liberal morons)?
He is takings to the Liberal Media. He is giving them instructions to spin the debt ceiling increase as a good thing.

The Media will obey!

MaCain is wrong! We in the Tea Party throw him out long time ago.

Now, Mr. Smart, when Obama gives guns to rebels how can he tell who are the "good" rebels and who are Al Queda? See how incompetent your president is? You voted for that so he should draft you if we go to war!
