Silence about a thing just magnifies it.

When I write I don't aim to shock people, and I'm surprised when I do. But I don't think that anything that occurs in life should be omitted from art, though the artist should present it in a fashion that is artistic and not ugly. I set out to tell the truth. And sometimes the truth is shocking.

TENNESSEE WILLIAMS,

We are all civilized people, which means that we are all savages at heart but observing a few amenities of civilized behavior.

The Magic Negro's lying problem is pathological. Maybe Obamacare could help him but he'd have to first be able to get past his f*cked-up website.

Rand Paul lit into Hillary at some event in a speech he made the other day.

He reiterated the fact she admitted to not having read the cables and the ambassador's repeated requests for more security.

He reminded us of the 3 a.m. phone call if she won the WH but that she couldn't even protect our troops.

He ended by stating Hillary Clinton was not deserving to hold any high office in government.

I agree.

(Why is this president ALWAYS so unseemly and rudely late for press conferences?)

Medicare Part D....
....a White House desperate for an election year win on Medicare deliberately misrepresented the program's costs in order to ensure passage. On December 8, 2003, President Bush rolled out a program he claimed would cost $400 billion over 10 years. Within two months, however, the White House notified Congress that the real price tag would approach $550 billion. When Medicare actuary Richard Foster sought to present the true price tag to Congress in late 2003, then agency chief Thomas Scully threatened to fire him.(As it was, then House Majority Leader Tom Delay twisted arms and extended debate on the bill by hours to coerce recalcitrant Republicans, a move for which he was later admonished by a House Ethics panel.) Fast forward two years and the estimated 10 year price tag for the Medicare prescription plan now exceeds $720 billion for its 43 million beneficiaries.
The result for American seniors and taxpayers is a Medicare prescription fiasco. Too expensive for its lukewarm Republican supporters and underfunded by Democratic assessments, the Medicare drug program is a budget nightmare almost certain to fail in its central objective of helping elderly Americans dramatically reduce their prescription drug costs.
But then again, for President Bush and his Republican allies in Congress, that was never really part of the plan.

We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.

He's now 20 minutes late. She must be making sure he can regurgitate it word for word.

Another "victory" for low bar losers. You right wing morons are losers because you don't know how to win. Winners suggest ways to keep embassy staff safe, they don't ramble on and on about phony conspiracies. Winners don't take pleasure in preventing needy Americans from getting health care, they do their best to find a way to help. Winners don't build themselves up by bringing others down. Winners aren't whiners, they're doers, they make things happen.
Benghazi shows how Dems keep embassy staff safe, the millions that have/continue to loose their health insurance show how Dems help people get health care, Dems have done nothing but parade around and pat themselves on the back for 5 years.

Little men need big guys to protect them.

It looks like they are having teleprompter problems.
