What exactly happened in West Virginia? On Jan. 9, 2014, a steel storage tank near Charleston, W.Va., containing crude 4-methylcyclohexane methanol (MCHM) began leaking through a one-inch hole. The chemical was soon seeping into the Elk River, just 1.5 miles upstream of a water-treatment center. Those old tanks were riveted together. A one inch hole is just about the right size used.

These widows, widowers, and otherwise one income households are on permanent welfare Galt__people in their sixties, seventies and eighties who require a host of government subsidies to survive. Some require autos, some don't. Some are homeowners some are renters and some live with family (have you seen that box on your income tax return?)

There are millions of these folks Galt and due to the baby boomer inspired "retirement crisis" their numbers are growing.

Alan West was a war hero and any black conservative is the biggest threat to your liberal power hungry party.

Obama won the Illinois Senate unopposed twice and the US Senate once. But you probably have no idea why do you?

All three of Obama's opponents were accused of being involved in some personal scandal or, in one case, suspicious political manipulation orchestrated by Axelrod in the media to the point where all three dropped out.

Sure is a pretty big coincidence, huh? Winning unopposed three times in a row because of alleged swirling scandals involving three different opponents?

What are the odds of that ever happening to any politician?

The indictment is just the latest in a tangle of personal and professional difficulties that swarmed around D’Souza at what was arguably the height of his success: the popularity of his 2012 anti-Obama documentary 2016: Obama’s America. The film, which was released in the summer of 2012 and became a slow-burn hit with conservatives in the run-up to the presidential election, earned over $33 million at the box office and was the highest-grossing documentary since 1982. But just a couple of months into the film’s promotion, D’Souza was out of a job: he resigned his lucrative position as president of the King’s College, a small evangelical Christian school in Manhattan, over reports that he was engaged to a 29-year-old woman while still being married to his wife of 20 years

If Obama, Obama, Sr. and Davis were in a line up and one hundred people were asked to guess which two were related, all one hundred would choose Davis and Obama.

Obama looks absolutely nothing like Obama, Sr.- not even one distinctive feature - or his half brother who looks exactly like Obama, Sr.

But we lose elections just because of people like you and a corrupt liberal media poisoning your mind.

Arizona State University announced Thursday evening a fraternity was kicked off campus following a racist party the Greek organization held in conjunction with the national holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Tau Kappa Epsilon was notified this week its recognition as a fraternity at the university was permanently revoked by ASU, spokeswoman Sharon Keeler said. TKE was suspended Monday for holding an "MLK Black Party" where attendees were encouraged to wear jerseys, drink from watermelon cups and guests posted photos on Instagram with the hashtags #blackoutformlk and #hood.

Had to stop right there. Didn't even read the rest of your rather lengthy post and expert spinning.

You are one mixed up liberal if you have the gall to bring up character after defending Clinton.

Why wasn't Edwards found guilty of anything? What he did was clearly illegal - not to mention immoral.

So please spare me the hypocrisy. Don't know how much more I can stand.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Michigan GOP Chair Bobby Schostak are urging Michigan's RNC committeeman, Dave Agema, to step down over his contentious anti-gay and anti-Muslim comments.

“For the good of the party, we believe Dave Agema should resign,” Priebus and Schostak said Friday in a joint statement to the Detroit Free Press.

The party leaders previously condemned Agema's remarks without calling for him to step down. They join three House members from Michigan and other prominent state Republicans who have already publicly called for Agema's resignation.

Notice that the new governors first executive order was to reverse McDonnels first executive order?

Shortly after being sworn in, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order banning discrimination against LGBT state employees. It was McAuliffe's first official act as governor.

Said McAuliffe:

“My administration is committed to keeping Virginia open and welcoming to all who call our Commonwealth home. Executive Order Number 1 sets the tone for an administration that will not accept discrimination in any form, and one that will work tirelessly to ensure all Virginians have equal opportunity in the workplace, no matter their backgrounds, race, religion, or whom they love.”

The order "prohibits discrimination based on race, sex, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, or against otherwise qualified persons with disabilities in Virginia state government."

Everyone knows the stock market is over-inflated. Yet, investors will whine and cry when it takes yet another monumental drop in this year. They'll be crying in their beer about losing money that only existed on paper in the first place. IMO, it's time to take your money and run. The shoe is about to drop and this time around, there will be no government bailout to save Wall Street.

A recent study from the University of California at Berkley stated the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer under the Obama administration than under both Bush or Clinton.

(Berkley isn't exactly a conservative think tank.)

So no one on the left has any comments?

Remember that the above post is only talking about $100. Think what it would look like if you added $100 a month or $25 a week or $3.57 a day?
