Look who's talking! You're the nitwit who repeats every talking point coming out of Fox without actually checking them to see if their actually true. Unlike you Carol I actually take the time to check out what I post which probably why I'm usually a few days behind in my posts.
Your take on the Koch brothers vs. George Soros is a perfect example of your intellectual laziness.
Together, the Kochs have approximately $68 billion dollars combined wealth whereas George Soros has $20 billion. Right away, common sense should prevail upon a conservative afraid of a Soros boogeyman that he doesn’t have the resources of the megalomaniacal brothers. Where does this misguided commenter get such nonsense? Where else but the conservative media-sphere, so well-known for its distortion, it’s become cliché. Visit Fox So-Called News or right wing blogs, and soon you hear that George Soros has spent “$550 million” since 1979 in the United States on liberal causes and fail to note that he has disclosed every dollar, because he believes in a transparent and open society. Conversely, just try and find a record of the Koch brothers’ donations to conservative causes since 1979 without a full-time investigator.
It's so nice that the Koch's fund cancer research since their various refineries cause so much of it. Here's some more goodies from Koch world;
In 2008, an internal investigation found numerous instances of bribery to foreign officials to secure contracts by Koch Industries subsidiary Koch-Glitsch. One incident which came under investigation was the payment of an unusually high premium to a sales agent who admitted in a French court that the payment had been passed on to someone representing a partially state-owned Egyptian company in order to secure a contract there.
The company attempted to blame the sales agent and terminated him with a six page letter detailing the company's illicit payments to interests in Algeria, Egypt, India, Morocco, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia and placing blame for them on the sales agent. However, the court found that "[the sales agent] was not giving authorizations" for the payments, instead indicating that Charles Ender, a major Koch executive and president of Koch-Glitsch for Europe and Asian operations at the time, was responsible.
In April 2001, the Koch Petroluem Group (now Flint Hills Resources) "pleaded guilty to a felony charge of lying to the government about its benzene emissions". A report to the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission disclosed only 1/149th of the actual benzene pollution. The company was fined $10 million and ordered to fund an additional $10 million in costs for environmental cleanup in South Texas.
George Soros isn't even his real name. But the democrats have always embraced war criminals and now of course perverts and as always liars: Democrats embrace Soros:
During an interview with “60 Minutes” reporter Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “happiest year”:

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years. Was it difficult?

SOROS: No, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

KROFT: No feelings of guilt?

SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.

Those last eight chilling lines tell us all we need to know about Soros, and more importantly, anyone who would want to associate with this despicable scumbag, who should have been charged with committing war crimes, IMO.

YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHY A NJ SCHOOL SUSPENDED ETHAN CHAPLIN AND SENT HIM FOR A PSYCH EVALUATION

6635
Ethan Chaplin is a thirteen-year-old student in Vernon, New Jersey, who has suspended for two days and will undergo a psychological evaluation after another student complained that he “twirled a pencil like a gun”.

Is this the kind of ‘political correctness’ we should be teaching children? Should school kids worry all the time that someone imagining they see a “gun motion” will arbitrarily damage their future?

According to News 12 New Jersey, Chaplin said he was “just twisting around a pencil with a pen cap on it when a student behind him yelled,‘He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.’”
Share this if you’re tired of officials caving in to left-wing idealist propaganda!

Chaplin told officials he had repeatedly been bullied by the student who complained and that the complaint about the pencil was just an extension of that. But the school suspended him anyway,“pending the outcome of a psychological evaluation.”

Vernon Schools Superintendent Charles Maranzano indicated that “school policy and the law requires [sic] him to investigate when anyone in school feels uncomfortable or threatened by another student.” He said,“We never know what’s percolating in the minds of children. And when they demonstrate behaviors that raise red flags, we must do our duty.”

Elections Director Kim Strach in North Carolina told state lawmakers at an oversight hearing Wednesday that her staff has identified 765 registered North Carolina voters who appear to have cast ballots in two states during the 2012 presidential election.
Strach said the first names, last names, birthdates and last four digits of their Social Security numbers appear to match information for voters in another state. Each case will now be investigated to determine whether voter fraud occurred.
There is a growing concern this could have occurred in 28 other states as well.
We should all want fair elections - in a democracy, that is. Not sure if some would prefer corrupt politicians seizing power at any cost and by any means who prey on the gullible to believe their intentions are good.
it's been a long time...why hasn't anyone been charged with felony voter fraud? it would be easy to check with the other states to see if they voted there also. seems it didn't really happen.

Rev. Al Sharpton worked as FBI informant, taping conversations with mob pals to help bring down Genovese crime family: report
Sharpton became an informant after he was caught on tape with a drug kingpin discussing cocaine deals, and the feds threatened him with charges unless he flipped and snitched on Mafia acquaintances, according to The Smoking Gun. In an interview with the Daily News on Monday, Sharpton disputed much of the report, saying he turned to authorities after receiving threats from Gambino family member Joseph (Joe Bana) Buonanno and others.

The Rev. Al Sharpton in his office in New York on January 20, 1991. Sharpton worked as an FBI informant during the 1980s, according to a report by The Smoking Gun.
He's had the titles of civil rights activist, presidential candidate and TV host.
But for a time, the FBI secretly called the Rev. Al Sharpton something else:“CI-7”— a confidential informant who taped mobsters with a bugged briefcase, helping the feds bring down members of the Genovese crime family, it was revealed Monday.
For four years in the 1980s, Sharpton secretly assisted a joint FBI-NYPD task force known as the “Genovese squad,” The Smoking Gun website disclosed.
Sharpton’s role as an FBI informant was first disclosed in 1988 — but The Smoking Gun obtained hundreds of pages of secret court filings and FBI memos that provide stunning new details of his cooperation. The documents depict Sharpton operating easily in an underworld of violence and corruption, helping the feds collect essential information.

guess this is part of the reason why the feds didn't put Sharpton in jail over his 1 million dollar didn't pay his fair share bill? mm mmm mm-Sharpton went on the record and said he was considered one of the top advisers to O'bama. I can believe it.

At least you can't call them obstructionists anymore. If they give Obama everything he wants and ObamaCare is the disaster even some Democrats fear it will be, you have no one to blame anymore either, do you?
Unlike Harry Reid who refused to bring up any bill passed by the House in the Senate for a vote. Wonder what old Harry was scared of. But talk about an obstructionist!
Is there any accountability in American politics for being completely wrong? Is there any cost to those who say things that turn out not to be true and then, when their fabrications or false predictions are exposed, calmly move on to concocting new claims as if they had never made the old ones?

The fact that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) hit its original goal this week of signing up more than 7 million people through its insurance exchanges ought to be a moment of truth — literally as well as figuratively. It ought to give everyone, particularly members of the news media, pause over how reckless the opponents of change have been in making instant judgments and outlandish charges.

When the health-care Web site went haywire last fall, conservatives were absolutely certain this technological failure meant that the entire reform effort was doomed. If you doubt this, try a Google search keyed to that period relating the word “doomed” to the health-care law.
It should be said that the general public was much wiser. A CNN poll in November that Post blogger Greg Sargent highlighted at the time found a majority (54 percent to 45 percent) saying that the problems facing the law “will eventually be solved.” Political moderates took this view by 55 percent to 43&#8201;percent, independents by 50 percent to 48 percent. Only Republicans — by a whopping 72 percent to 27 percent — and conservatives (by 66 percent to 33&#8201;percent) thought the law could never be fixed.

Their representatives in Washington, moderate conservatives as well as the tea party’s loyalists, followed the base’s lead. In mid-November, for example, Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) told Fox News flatly that the law is “destined to fail,”“fundamentally flawed” and “not ready for prime time.” House Speaker John Boehner predicted dire outcomes before the Web site fiasco. He repeatedly insisted, as he did in July, that “even the Obama administration knows the ‘train wreck’ will only get worse.”

Residual troops remaining in Iraq until it had a more stabilized trained military to keep the peace was not part of the withdrawal agreement.
Obama folded his cards prematurely without even looking at - much less considering - any other options available to him to protect the residual troops and the Iraqis.
The gains that were made and the strategic advantage we once had in Iraq over Iran is now lost. Iraq has become another of Obama's problems and failed foreign policies.
Obama knew precisely what would happen. He and the democrats were bound and determined to guarantee failure. Every move he's made in the Middle East has helped Muslim terrorists and promoted violence against his enemies.

Graduated (with honors) from the U of I, married an associate professor who earned his doctorate at the age of 27 but soon became full-tenured teaching doctoral students (the marriage just didn't last), humbly had to defend my viewpoints on several different occasions with several different professors, and the U of I was one of the Big10, i.e. top ten universities.

I am left wondering how many burning crosses you have placed on the front lawn of homes owned by blacks. Your fear of becoming a minority prevents you from thinking clearly.
OH goody, now we can discuss the democrats and how they were the ones that burnt the crosses, the same democrat party of today. The Ku Klux Klan was originally founded by six members of the Confederate Army from Tennessee in 1865. As more and more groups adopted their methods and ideals, the “insurgent movement” spread throughout the South. Their violent activities suppressed both blacks and white republicans, and contributed to the rise of white Democrats in the region. Basically, they used violence to intimidate voters and run both black and white republicans out of the area.

The Presidential election of 1868 in Louisiana showed no republicans voting in one parish, even though they had over 1000 registered members. Why? Because more than 2,000 people had been killed or wounded in the entire state by the KKK in the weeks prior to the election.

”The KKK killed and wounded more than 200 black Republicans, hunting and chasing them through the woods. Thirteen captives were taken from jail and shot; a half-buried pile of 25 bodies was found in the woods. The KKK made people vote Democratic and gave them certificates of the fact.”

And then the NRA was formed to protect the blacks from the Democrats. usmsince1948 you are a poor excuse. Embrace your democrat history, embrace it! the truth is out there for all to see. Remember when Barack Hussein O'bama was elected, the democrats had to delete their history.
