There was no lie or cover up concerning Benghazi. Right whiners are SO stupid.

Why did those responsible attack the Consulate?

Do you know?

Why was it impossible for those in Benghazi not to be riled up by that video?

Do you think it reasonable for an investigation to take place before definite answers are given?

Do ya think that when you cite a possible cause with the statement that an investigation was needed & the report was preliminary?

Are you so f*cking stupid that you don't know what it means when someone clarifies their assessment with the clause that it is preliminary pending further investigation???

Bobby Jindal Proposes Increase In Higher Education Funding After Years Of Suggesting Cuts
""BATON ROUGE, La.(AP)— After six years of suggesting cuts, Gov. Bobby Jindal said Tuesday he'll recommend that lawmakers increase state financing for higher education next year and steer $40 million to a new workforce development initiative on campuses.
Jindal offered a peek at the 2014-15 budget proposal that his administration will detail to lawmakers Friday. It will pay for state government operations in the new year that begins July 1. Jindal was surrounded by higher education leaders, who applauded the announcement.
"The state is in its best fiscal position since the start of the recession, the national recession in 2008. We now have the great challenge of meeting the demand for a skilled workforce that has never existed in Louisiana before. It's a challenge, but I know we can do it," Jindal said.
The Republican governor said his spending plan would boost higher education funding by $142 million, though $88 million of that will come from increased tuition costs on students that already have been approved by lawmakers.
But unlike in past years, Jindal won't recommend that the new tuition dollars replace state funding. Instead, the governor said he is proposing that the campuses get a stable base of state funding, with the new tuition income on top of that.
In addition, the governor's budget will include the $40 million state funding pool to help campuses with initiatives matching students to jobs and $12 million for other targeted projects at colleges.
"This is a tremendous step forward for the financial recovery of higher ed," said Clinton "Bubba" Rasberry, chairman of the Board of Regents, which oversees higher education policy in the state.
Higher education leaders have pushed for the governor and lawmakers to stop slashing state financing for colleges and universities, after more than $700 million in cuts since 2008. Tuition increases on students have offset only about two-thirds of the state funding losses.""
Maybe he really is tired of being part of the "stupid party" and decided to do something about it.

<quoted text>A clear victory for freedom and ensuring that all Americans have the right to vote, our founding fathers would be very proud.
Good job Judge Bernard L. McGinley, screw those bastards that would try and deny Americans the right to vote.
Our Constitution also ensured the federal government would have limited powers. So much for limited powers.

The right to vote is perhaps the most sacred right in a republic. It's not to be abused for political gain.

If the Founders were still living with the population having grown beyond their imaginations, they would have supported protecting this sacred right and avoiding its abuse in a heartbeat.

Requiring an ID to vote isn't all that unreasonable. Unless democrats are afraid voter IDs would drastically affect their number of votes.
Why else would they get so angry? Don't democratic voters need an ID if they need food stamps or when picking up government checks?
Or can anyone just claim to be someone else and get both? Not sure how that works really.
But probably why there's so much fraud and abuse.
Here we go again.

I know it is difficult for you Carol but there is a difference between a particular photo ID & ID.

Pretty sure Rand Paul. He doesn't need a speech writer yet and had no trouble speaking his mind without a teleprompter during his filibuster.
Unlike Valerie Jarrett who writes all of this president's material which he's even gotten confused reading off of a teleprompter. Think of her as President #1 and Obama as #2.

It was a big week for voters both nationally and locally with the Voting Rights Act of 2014 bill being introduced in Congress and
a Pennsylvania state judge striking down the Commonwealth’s Voter
ID law as unconstitutional.
The Voter ID Law, or Act 18 in Pennsylvania, one of the strictest in the nation, required all voters to show state-approved identification in order to cast a ballot. On Friday morning, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard L. McGinley issued an order permanently blocking the controversial law that critics said would disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters. Judge McGinley’s ruling can be appealed by the commonwealth, but state lawmakers who opposed the law are pressing Gov. Corbett to abide by the judge’s decision.
Senate Democratic Majority Leader Jay Costa, D-Allegheny, said the law was an attempt by Republican lawmakers to freeze participation in the political process.
“Senate Democrats have said clearly and repeatedly that the Voter ID law was an overreach that would result in the disenfranchisement of hundreds of thousands of voters,” said Costa.“It was a law that should have never been approved and we are very happy that the court turned aside the measure today. There has been too much upheaval and confusion about preserving the right to vote. Plus taxpayers have had to pay too much in trying to defend this ill-conceived law. The measure was unconstitutional and political, and could not stand legal scrutiny. Simply put, it was an effort by Republicans to deny citizens access and a voice in their government that should have been dismissed. Instead of trying to find ways to stop citizens from voting, we should be doing mor

Voter disenfranchisement and gerrymandering: this is the only way a Republican can win.
The Democrats know this and will get out and vote in huge numbers. There are more Democrats than Republicans in this country; people have to stop being complacent.
I love it when efforts to suppress the vote are squashed. It's very patriotic. The right to vote is so important in this country and to try and stop people just disgusts me to no end.
