Welcome to the real world Carol. Everybody has always gathered intelligence from everybody else since the dawning of civilization. How many personnel in various embassies in Washington are actually intelligence agents under some title like "commercial attaché"? When something like this gets leaked then countries will make the obligatory protests but in the end everybody realizes that that's the way the game is played.
Picture Germany's version of NSA or its leader, Merkel, listening to Obama's private conversations and reading his private emails. Merkel seems to be convinced her privacy has been invaded by our NSA and Obama. The leaders in France and Great Britain have the same concerns.

Get the picture now?

So she does not work for all Americans, just some of them? Maybe just the Socialist ones?
She just confirmed what a lot of us have known for a long time. This president and his elite inner circle believe they work for no one. Their loyal base falls in line without question, and the rest of us are simply irrelevant and must be minimalized.

Anyone should be able to see they really do think we're stupid and beneath them.

They lie to us and deceive us at every opportunity. They provide no answers and hold no one accountable in the wake of every scandal that reeks of incompetence and deception.

Obama feigns outrage and claims to have had no knowledge of any wrongdoing under his watch, but the minute the liberal media have done their job and swept it under the rug, he arrogantly dismisses the same criticisms of wrongdoing and incompetence as a "phony".

He then goes about minimalizing his critics as irrelevant and knows his loyal base will continue to fall in line.

Only the most blind in the loyal base don't see this when it's as clear as crystal. They are the problem. Not who they elect.

We would never hear a conservative elected official say they don't have to answer to the people in the midst of a major screw-up and blatant incompetence.

The liberal media wouldn't even have to scream "FOUL!" Other conservatives would beat them to it.

Like Greece.

The UK is trying to fix their universal care health care system because it was a dismal failure.

Same with every other European socialist democracy.

Obama and his blind followers want us to go down the exact same road that leads to the same place where Europe has done a U-turn.

And now Republicans should just sit back and watch the fiasco known as Obammycare unfold on the low information voter. Rube Goldberg must have been one of the programmers.
Even though both our enemies and our allies know the USA is the last best hope of the world, Obama prefers that we be as nonthreatening and inconspicuous as possible.

Pulling back a bit to prove it might have been necessary.

But he prefers the USA look wimpy. That's the word.

Obama will become personally involved with local crimes involving racial controversy but has not said a word about the persecution of Christians worldwide that has become an epidemic. Not one peep.

OH? So you think that all of the countries with socialized medicine are just hoping and praying that they can one day pay a private insurance company thousands in premiums with huge deductibles and copays?
You really think that?

It's just a matter of proving the content of any source.

The CNS source claimed that the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated a total of 101,000,000 people participated in at least one of the 15 food programs offered by the agency at a cost of $114 billion in fiscal year 2012.

Which means the number of Americans receiving food assistance had surpassed the number of full-time private sector workers in the U.S.

If the Bureau of Labor Statistics is correct. The BLS says there were 97,180,000 full-time private sector workers in 2012, according to that source.

You can discredit those numbers or the source by doing the research. Sarcasm doesn't prove it or disprove it. Just sayin'.

Astonishing, isn't it? To what lengths his elite inner circle will go to keep him out of the loop. Or cover for him. Or lie for him. Or whatever they have to do to fall on the sword for him.
His top officials not only knew about the IRS targeting but were involved in the writing of the interrogative-type questions. But claim Obama had absolutely no knowledge of this.
Obama said he learned about the IRS targeting in the news the same day we did.
And he knew nothing about the problems with the roll out of his signature law.
Does he know anything that's going on in his own administration?
You people are just beyond stupid. Somehow in your little pea brains Obama is suppose to have a finger on everything that goes on in government....every department, in every country. It's absolutely ridiculous.

A governor or a mayor are not involved in writing department manuals or solving problems within the different departments. That is the job of department heads....like the police chief, treasurer, tax collector, etc. The head of a state or city only gets involved when he/she hears something has gone wrong with an assigned task. That is the way government works. It's not like a mom & pop grocery store where there is only one line of communication. You look really foolish.

Good morning.
Let's sum up the week's discussion.

Obama stole the software for his ObamaKare site and corrupted it in an attempt to hide the evidence he stole it, which caused the website to repeatedly crash.
There was a contract in place for a contractor to write the software instead of stealing it.
The person who wrote the script of the software Obama stole said it would have worked if Obama didn't try to hide the evidence proving he stole the software.
John McAfee said the best thing to do is scrap it and start all over again.
An ignorant Democrat dupe referenced an article in dailymail.co.uk about John McAfee being a fugitive from Bellize, sandwiched between articles describing how size 12 women feel better about themselves than anyone else and Hungarian gypsies are the real family of "Maria" (whoever the hell that is.)

Also, Medicare is viable, while Medicaid will be a continual drain on the economy comprised of people who work for a living. Medicare is for people who worked their entire lives, while Medicaid is a welfare program for people who wouldn't work.

I think that about sums up the week here.

Did I miss anything?

Oh, yeah. Obama lied for two weeks to cover up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi.
The entire world is laughing at Obama, and the United States government has absolutely no credibility in the world today.

That 14-year-old needed the seat of his pants warmed up a long time ago.

But the PC police won't hear of it.

Children learning right from wrong is a no-no. Might hurt their feelings or make their parents mad. These parents need their seats warmed up too but it's too late for them, not their child.

And with Obama's "recovery" generating 5 part time jobs for every 1 full time job, thus putting 5 people into poverty for every 1 person it allows a living wage, this condition won't do anything but get worse.
If you live in a household where only half the people living there are providing for the entire household, then you are either in a house where a family with children live, or you are in the average neighborhood that votes Democrat all the time.
