These Representatives need to hear from the American people or this hearing will become just another “Benghazi” effort to sweep Administration failings under the political carpet.
Those who are not democrats aka liberals, it is time for some work. Call the Representatives, it only takes a few minutes:
Here are the numbers:

Maybe dumbass Republicans in Congress should address the families of over 4000 dead soldiers why they were sent to Iraq. So far they were told WMDs, Links to Al Qaeda, Spreading Democracy, or was it about oil.

I find you total assh*les to be such a f*cking joke ranting & having a fit about Benghazi where 4 people died and yet say absolutely nothing when your hero George W Bush sent 40000 soldiers to their deaths in a made up war based on lies.

My God, they weren't even given properly armored vehicles & body armor.

You people are a bunch of sick f*cks who ignored the travesty in Iraq while lying to make up a false issue in Benghazi.

There is no excuse for you people.

Let me make it clear that I wish that all people would just see other people as different and respect that. But it's a different world now. The politically correct and hypocritical agenda of progressive liberalism/communism/Marxism has made us all crazy, confused and suspicious of each other. By design.

Probably time for all of us to wise up.

First Lady requires more than twenty attendants

Update: First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants

“In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said.“See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service,“ Michelle Obama
No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.
How things have changed! If you’re one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michele are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public:
$172,2000 - Sher, Susan (CHIEF OF STAFF)
$140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C.(DEPUTY ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR OF POLICY AND PROJECTS FOR THE FIRST LADY)

Krauthammer: The myth of "settled science"
By Charles Krauthammer
Washington Post Writers Group
POSTED: 02/22/2014 05:01:00 PM MST248 COMMENTS| UPDATED: A DAY AGO

""The debate is settled," asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. "Climate change is a fact." Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge."

Obama is an idiot.

"So much for settledness. And climate is less well understood than breast cancer. If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing? And how is it that the great physicist Freeman Dyson, who did some climate research in the late 1970s, thinks today's climate-change Cassandras are hopelessly mistaken?"

Warmers are stupid and hysterical

"They deal with the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans, argues Dyson, ignoring the effect of biology, i.e., vegetation and topsoil. Further, their predictions rest on models they fall in love with: "You sit in front of a computer screen for 10 years and you start to think of your model as being real." Not surprisingly, these models have been "consistently and spectacularly wrong" in their predictions, write atmospheric scientists Richard McNider and John Christy — and always, amazingly, in the same direction.

Settled? Even the U.K.'s national weather service concedes there's been no change — delicately called a "pause" — in global temperature in 15 years. If even the raw data is recalcitrant, let alone the assumptions and underlying models, how settled is the science?"

Blind leading the blind hysterics

"Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there's more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads. If you whore after other gods, the Bible tells us, "the Lord's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit"

Religious fanatics, as loony as the islamofascists, even more dangerous

. "Climate change is a fact." Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge."

climate is cyclic in nature regardless of how man buses we drive or cow farts we introduce into the atmosphere....

ask a 17,000 year old stalagmite...

"Also on the continent, Niggemann et al.(2003) studied the petrographical and geochemical properties of three stalagmites found in a cave in Sauerland, Germany, from which they developed a climatic history covering the last 17,600 years. As they describe their findings, the records obtained from the three stalagmites "resemble records from an Irish stalagmite (McDermott et al., 1999)." Specifically, they note that their data provide clear evidence for the existence of the Little Ice Age, Medieval Warm Period and Roman Warm Period, which also implies the existence of the Dark Ages Cold Period that separated the Medieval and Roman Warm Periods.

....climate and weather have cycles...

and how many automobiles were around in the year 500 AD?

"Following the demise of what has been called the Roman Warm Period, the authors note the existence of three consistently cold events that were centered at approximately 500, 700 and 900 AD, during what is sometimes referred to as the Dark Ages Cold Period. Then, from 1100-1300 AD, they report "the ð18O of Hongyuan peat cellulose increased, consistent with that of Jinchuan peat cellulose and corresponding to the 'Medieval Warm Period'." Finally, they note that "the periods 1370-1400 AD, 1550-1610 AD,[and] 1780-1880 AD recorded three cold events, corresponding to the 'Little Ice Age'."

You are lying.
Proof Al Qaeda planned and executed the attack in Benghazi. This is also what the President of Libya told Obama, which internal State Department emails sent on 9/12 confirmed.
I'm sure this wasn't in your indoctrination session. And, I'm sure that Senate so-called "investigation" went out of their way to avoid this fact:
"U.S. officials suspect that a former Guantanamo Bay detainee played a role in the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and are planning to designate the group he leads as a foreign terrorist organization, according to officials familiar with the plans. Militiamen under the command of Abu Sufian bin Qumu, the leader of Ansar al-Sharia in the Libyan city of Darnah, participated in the attack that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, U.S. officials said...Qumu, 54, a Libyan from Darnah, is well known to U.S. intelligence officials. A former tank driver in the Libyan army, he served 10 years in prison in the country before fleeing to Egypt and then to Afghanistan. According to U.S. military files disclosed by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, Qumu trained in 1993 at one of Osama bin Laden’s terrorist camps in Afghanistan and later worked for a bin Laden company in Sudan, where the al-Qaeda leader lived for three years. Qumu fought alongside the Taliban against the United States in Afghanistan; he then fled to Pakistan and was later arrested in Peshawar. He was turned over to the United States and held at Guantanamo Bay. He has a 'long-term association with Islamic extremist jihad and members of al-Qaida and other extremist groups,' according to the military files.'Detainee’s alias is found on a list of probable al-Qaida personnel receiving monthly stipends.'"

They want them to go after the Tea Party because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold. I'm telling you, the lobbying-consultant class of the Republican Party and Republican leadership, who have been attacking the Tea Party and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this. That's why there hasn't been any establishment Republican pushback on the IRS. It's almost safe to say the Republican establishment might be willing to lose a couple of elections if it meant getting rid of the Tea Party; because it's clear, folks, they don't want to win any elections the Tea Party can claim any credit for.

Pick a statement and tell us why you think that statemen tis inaccurate.

The United States was the first nation created where the people are not subjects of any government, and the government is a subject of the people.
The people of the United States are guaranteed the right to speak their mind, have a free press, choose their own religion, arm themselves and defend their own individual rights, are free from the government spying on them without evidence of a crime, and can have their life or property taken from them only by due process of law.
(fast forward to the last half of the 20th century)
The Democrats begin the Cold War with the conviction of Alger Hiss while spying for the enemy of the United States.
The Democrats openly join the enemy of the United States during the Cold War.
The Democrats invent a system of lies about Vietnam to slander the veterans and country, and indoctrinate the entire country with it.
The Democrats invent a system of lies about the Cold War front in Central America and indoctrinate the coutry with it.
9/11
The Democrats support the front in Iraq in the war the Arab Islamists started.
The Democrats invent a system of lies about the war the Arab Islamist terrorists started and indoctrinate the country with it.
The Democrats obtain the Presidency and use the office of President to rebel against the Constitutional Republic of the United States.
The Democrats install a dictatorship where the President writes his own laws to suit political whim.
The Democrats join the enemy in the war the Arab Islamist terrorists started and sabotage Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Democrats give Arab Islamist terrorists in Saudi Arabia "special traveller" status to enter United States without scrutiny.
The Democrats give visas to terrorists with "limited" known contact with known terrorists groups.
I'm sure there are other events you can add to this abreviated list.
