Seems your fixation now that you are off Benghazi and ACORN.
CBS' 60 Minutes has forever ended the Benghazi fiasco.

Nobody can believe anything anyone says about it. It's turned into a series of lies from all sides.

But it's okay. Don't obsess over it. It doesn't matter in the whole scheme of things. Guys just tend to make it more important than it really is.
lol! And here I was talking about your group of 'friends' and you have to go and change the subject!

Oh, well! SNAFU!

Sorry I missed your post before. It can't be avoided - talking about social issues. The liberals salivate waiting for elections just to put that as their #1 focus because it's all they got.
The trick is for conservatives to take a strong stand using very few words. I've pointed out several times Reagan's response. "I'm for life." Nothing else needs to be said.
How can liberals make an issue out of someone being for life?
But to deny one's convictions to win an election makes a conservative candidate no different than liberals.
It's just how they must go about it. Galt and I actually agreed on that.
Especially when the majority are against abortion and the black community is possibly undergoing changes just because the Democratic Party doesn't represent their beliefs on these same issues.
You want to legislate other folks morality to fit your beliefs.

As Nobraina/Galt said, this has been a losing strategy for Repugnants for decades.

Roe v Wade was in 1974. Are you really so ignorant to think you can outlaw something that is clearly a woman's right to make a personal decision about?? Americans have rejected that view for 4 decades.

And at the same time, whine about a make believe 'War on Christmas'??

You're cra-cra.

You're a fundamentalist who sees no problem with stealing others freedoms, so long as it fits your religious beliefs.

That is as unAmerican as can be.
Yeah

He drove motorcycles in his younger days - actually, so did I at one time on occasion.
But he's not as old as me - I robbed the cradle. And I would never attempt to drive it now.
He's taking classes and has to pass an exam - both written and riding - before taking the test at the DMV. It's a law in Florida.
I'm giving him plenty of time to get comfortable on it before hopping on.
It's amazing at the types of robberies you've accomplished!

You must be proud.

The person they interviewed was British. Where are all the Americans who WERE there?

Who is silencing them? And for what purpose?

Doesn't that cause you even a little bit of concern? There were Americans who were there who have all but disappeared from the face of the earth.

Some Senators are having to take extraordinary measures just to have access to them and talk to them.

That should bother anyone no matter who sits in the Oval Office.

Oh.... right. Obama got elected on social issues.

Well let's see, Romney claimed he didn't care about 47% of Americans.

Hmmmmm.... I suspect there's a reason cons don't want to talk about social issues. Romney only said what they were all thinking!

Because I know you grew up on a dairy farm, I now better understand where your bitterness is coming from.
I'd have to do the research but, just from vague memory, I recall the government having put the screws to farmers a while back which forced them to survive any way they could.
Could be wrong. You'd know more about that than me.
But as for the book you suggested, I'd love to learn more about it first. Can you provide a link? Amazon would do.
I thought you enjoyed doing research babe. Did your little fingers suddenly seize up? Why should I do your work? And providing just one single link would deny you the rest of Kinzer's body of work, you tubes and the like.

Research, like her thinking, is selective.

Where is Scott Strickland who was the "only" person who secured Ambassador Stevens and Sean Smith in the safe area prior to running to a different building to get heavy weapons.

Scott Strickland is an American who actually was there and "could" easily be subpoenaed, yet he hasn't been.

Why do you suppose that is???

There were a few other Americans at the consulate who also haven't been subpoenaed__and another twenty plus at the nearby CIA annex.

Why wouldn't Issa subpoena these people and let the chips fall where they may???

Oh my__did I just answer my own question?

MSN - A lack of legal or practical options means the latest political problem engulfing Obama's health care overhaul may not be resolved quickly, cleanly or completely.

Some are saying the cancellations have just begun.
It's going to get pretty depressing in the WH over the upcoming months.
No problem, Obama has over three years to tinker with his health care program. Only people in a panic mode are right wing morons that are afraid it WILL work.

"Catholic Charities USA receives more than half of its funding each year ($554 million in 2010) from federal grants. In 2012, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops received $63 million…in federal grants."
I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on tax-exempt groups like Catholic Charities to subsidize their "charitable" work. It much better to spend those millions to support social welfare programs than help the Catholic church build up its coffers.
"uselesssinceforever "
In addition to being a liberal loon, you have comprehension problems. I said nothing about giving money to the government to piss away. I said I give money and time to my church where the money is spent in a good way, helping the folks.
One example, something we have done for years, We, a group of fellow parishoners, have purchased 18 turkeys and nearly $800. For Thanksgiving we will give to needy families in our parish a turkey and a $50.00 grocery store gift certificate, not a lot but something. We do the same at Easter and Christmas. We get support from the youth group, folks in the parish, KofC, a supermarket chain, and a major distributor of turkeys and monies from our pockets.
In your sick world you prefer the government to piss away 100's of millions on failed green energy boon dogles, nobamkare, computer programs that do not work, money for killers, o.e. the Fast and Furious program that let to American deaths, money to Planned Parenthood so they can abort/murder more innocents.

Tinker? More like demolish and rebuild from the ground up - if that's even possible at this point - according to MSN. The damage has been done. It might not even be fixable. Millions of people are just plain screwed and a lot of them are Democrats who won't forget they asked for it.
