If only the Hitlers, Stalins and Husseins or the world had gotten on board with Seeger's naïve view of the real world,

And if only Southern Democrats had gotten on board with Seeger's distorted view of the world.

And if only Seeger had moved to a communist country in order to appreciate a competitive free market where anyone can move up the ladder.

He may have been speaking during a different time in history - during the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement. So he gets a pass. Liberals today don't.

Move to Alaska - While Most of U.S. Froze, Parts of Alaska Set Record Highs

While the continental U.S. has been shivering from coast-to-coast with temperatures dropping as low as minus-40°F amid one of the most severe early December cold snaps in several years, one state bucked the trend in an historic way.

The same contorted jet stream pattern that brought the brutal cold to the lower 48 states pushed a pulse of milder-than-average air into Alaska, where some spots recorded temperatures unheard of for December.

Along Alaska's northern coastline, which lies above the Arctic Circle, the warmest December temperatures on record in at least 70 years occurred this past week.

At the airport in Deadhorse, which serves the oil production hub of Prudhoe Bay, the temperature hit 39°F on December 7, the highest December temperature on record there since at least 1968, said Rick Thoman of the National Weather Service (NWS) in Fairbanks in an interview. Even more notable, perhaps, was the fact that it was raining, rather than snowing. Rain there is unusual so late in the year.

Previously, the highest December temperature recorded at any of the two climate observation sites that have served Prudhoe Bay over the years was 35°F, set on Dec. 31, 1973, according to Chris Burt, a blogger at Weather Underground.

One problem is, he was a serial rapist, you moron. The other problem is, Hillary is a pathological liar. You seem to forget that she began her career in Washington by getting fired from the Watergate investigation committee staff.
Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.
Why?
“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said.“She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

"She conspired...."
Another conspiracy?

Difference being - I like the music of that time because it's a reminder of a different time in our history. And still like some of the same artists for their contribution to the music world during that time. But I don't like many of them having embraced the present day loony liberal ideology because it's a different time now. They haven't been able to keep up or something.

No nitwit, you shut up!
In the first video, Benghazi isn't even mentioned. Did it cause outrage and violence in various parts of the Middle East? Yes STUPID! Our embassies were attacked in Cairo, Tunis and Yemen.
In the second video while the anti Muslim video is mentioned it's not in connection to Benghazi.
In the fourth, Benghazi isn't even mentioned.
Only in the third does the President make a connection, but so what? What's your evidence that it wasn't involved Carol? What's your source? The liars at Fox? What's their source? Did they send anyone over to Benghazi to interview witnesses? No, they just kept on pulling stuff from their anal orifices without any evidence whatsoever. Actual evidence suggests otherwise;
At a news conference the day after the ambassador and three other Americans were killed, a spokesman for Ansar al-Shariah who witnesses put responsibility for the attack on, praised the attack as the proper response to such an insult to Islam. "We are saluting our people for this zeal in protecting their religion, to grant victory to the Prophet," the spokesman said. "The response has to be firm."

Federal spending continues to drop ....
What planet do you live on?

http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_s...

The only reason spending didn't continue increasing at the rate set by the Democrats after 2007 was the TEA Party began to influence Congress in 2010. You remember that year, don't you? That's the year everyone had to get re-elected, and the TEA Party took the House away from the Democrats.
If you noticed, after the so-called "bipartisan" (like there's a difference between Democrats and RINOs) budget gets the increase in government spending back on the suicidal track it was on before the TEA Party kicked everyone's ass.

You have no standards; you have stooped to the lowest depths of desperation in your seething hate of President Obama; and, it is because he is black. We've been reading your posts for 5 years.

So, you can stuff your lofty proclamations filled with hollowness.
Your party is the anti women party, the racist party, the anti gay party, the anti immigration party, the anti veteran party. You are doomed. So suffer. There's nothing good or decent about you; you wallow in darkness, it's you and don't give me that scripture bullshyt either.

Now, another (related) question you run away from:

Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he said he was born in Hawaii?

And, how many times do you think Obama will lie tonight?

Fox News Gets Four Men To Debate The War On Women

""Even Fox News host Bret Baier had to admit that choosing four guys to discuss the "war on women" was "not the best booking of this panel":

Whatever the merits of the panel, at least it made a good companion to the network's all-white forum on the Richard Sherman controversy.

It's like when Repugnants refused to allow Sandra Fluke to testify.

And they think nobody notices..........

Chuck Grassley for proposing the amendment to the ACA that required members of Congress and their staffs to purchase health insurance though state exchanges. No one to blame but himself.
Nice to see you LOL at people who lost their doctors, I don't blame you for laughing at all the idiots that wanted O'bama care--they were stupid and ignorant. They happen to be you and the party of Democrats--no one but Democrats caused these problems. I wonder if O'bama will be talking about his O'bamacare tonight--I can hardly wait.
