How could you possibly know that?

But if you're talking about my criticizing an ideology that this president and the power elite embrace which is destroying traditional values, blatantly disrespects our veterans and dismisses half of us as the enemy and a threat to their destructive ideology...then I'd be ashamed to call myself a Christian if I did or said nothing.

so you're saying that what someone says doesn't really have any effect on anything?
Barney's been telling you guys that for years now. nice to see you finally picked up on it.
that's not what I was saying. Is it your contention that one man has enough power to shut down the government and cause a default but not have the power to cause failures at Fannie and Freddie?

Old flack kinda reminds me of Sleezy Eed, whenever they make a mistake them try and make ten excuses on what happened. Both also love to pretend that they have a life with lots of friends, but it's way more than obvious they both are terrible insecure. I'm betting imaginary friends and life. Kinda sad.

Did I mention this ideology also threatens to force us into submission by taking away our freedoms to make our own choices and decisions concerning our own lives?

Because I sure meant to.

There are some things even Christians believe are worth fighting for.

But as far you knowing the extent of my compassion for the poor or the example I've set for my daughter, you have no possible clue.

Maybe a source would clarify that statement.

A credible one preferably.

Ken Fisher, the creator of Fisher House who came to the rescue of the families of the fallen soldiers, told O'Reilly that the government hasn't shown any sense of urgency about this whatsoever. They've had no contact with anyone in the Obama administration after sending out the checks to the families from private donors last week.

Liberals have to fault this president with this unfathomable fiasco just to call themselves Americans.

And please spare me the whining about him needing special permission because of some wording and legalize...blah, blah, blah. He could have signed an Executive Order within minutes.

Well maybe &, I'm not a left or right, I'm just me! The " something similar" thing has far too much latitude. What has the democrats done similar to holding the country hostage for ransom? Harry Reid is the majority leader so, he's entitled to that power but, he's not holding the country hostage!

"(DAILY KOS)-- My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don’t go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.

Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife’s rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284.

I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any [expletive]penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?"

A sizable contingent of more moderate Republicans have watched with alarm as their party has been commandeered by tea party members and right-wing activists trying to kill Obamacare at all costs.

The absurdity struck home for Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) Tuesday as the prominent conservative organizations Heritage Action, Red State and FreedomWorks all came out against a last-second GOP leadership plan to avert a crisis that Democrats had warned was too far to the right.

"This party is going nuts," King told HuffPost. "So many people I run into who are normal people -- and I hate to use that term -- they just can't understand what's going on."

"On this one they can't even see both sides," King said. "They just think Republicans are crazy. That's it. They see no justification for any of this."

He added that the compromise House leaders were pushing actually did little to affect Obamacare, except to force the federal government to stop contributing its share to congressional staffers' health insurance.

"Even if this bill passed tonight, what would it have done?" King said. "After shutting down the government for two and a half weeks, laying off 800,000 people, all the damage we caused, all we would end up doing was taking away health insurance from congressional employees. That's it? That's what you go to war for? That's what we shut down the United States government for?"

Not all learn from reading. Some people learn from seeing someone else do it first. Some people learn from hearing someone else read it first. And some people learn from doing things from a hands on approach so what's your point?

Wealth correlates with intelligence and education...and many wealthy parents teach their children to read before starting school...

Emammy's had a bad day, we have to cut him some slack.

His lies have caught up with him, and he doesn't like it one bit!!

He can't help it. He's been kicked from pillar to post all his miserable life.

I lit him up like a vat full of gasoline today. He'll have scars from it.

Did you notice he yells at his fav quarterback on TV?? Then tries to justify it as normal behavior. LOL

No further proof is needed concerning how crazy these right wingnuts are. Him and Dweeb. Loony birds of a feather.

Now that I have him gnawing the bone, my work here is done for tonight!!
