See? This is why you (and most liberals) are so confused.

After posting three sources and quoting each of them - The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Examiner and the Harvard website (showing the poll of young voters turning away from Democrats)- you want to think it's still my "opinion" rather than "facts".

You really have to pop that bubble of denial sooner or later.

SCAPEGOATS ANYONE?

Socialism does not work, as endless historical attempts have demonstrated. Millions killed, more than all religious wars combined. And... In order to overcome this problem, those attempting to institute socialist systems, find scapegoats or someone to blame..

Hitler blamed the Jews and gassed them.
Mao blamed the intellectuals and "re-educated" them.
Stalin blamed the Bolsheviks and sent them to the gulag.
Pol Pot blamed the shopkeepers and suffocated them.
Obama bin Lying blames the rich.

Help fight against left-winger bagger insanity... Occupy Obama!!

The Arizona congressional candidate who claimed last week that “99 percent” of mass shootings in the United States were perpetrated by Democrats is under fire again for statements in which he allegedly compared Arizona police to the Nazi’s elite SS guard.
According to the Arizona Republic, Republican congressional candidate and hotel owner Gary Kiehne was complaining to reporters about the difficulties he faced trying to get employees through police checkpoints during the 2011 Wallow Fire. He reportedly said that the police manning the checkpoints were like Nazi SS agents and all too willing “to shoot you and me.”
A campaign spokesman for Kiehne, Chris Baker, wrote in an email to the Republic that his candidate was taken out of context. He said that Kiehne “always wondered how German soldiers in [World War II] could turn on their own people with martial law, but after seeing martial law implemented during the Wallow Fire, he understood how it could happen.”
Upon learning of the comments, the Arizona Police Association and the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police both called for Kiehne to withdraw from the race. In a letter, the Fraternal Order of Police said that the candidate had “lost any and all credibility,”
“It’s rare that a candidate for the United States Congress makes a statement as repugnant and offensive as your comments to the Arizona Republic,” the letter continued.“We need adults in office, Mr. Kiehne. For that reason alone, you should terminate your campaign immediately.”

Anyone who has a functioning brain (which would exclude you!) knows that 911 was being planned and worked on for years before Bush took office. Bill Clinton's mess you idiot.

Keep being wishful, zombie liberal.

<quoted text> Does this mean your Thursday quotient of unemployed baby daddies ready to pump you full of more illegitimate welfare tickets has already been met today?
You are an fine example of the definition of naive. Observe the creators of welfare; One example; Wal-Mart that pay less than living wages to their employees. Thus those employees become eligible for welfare programs. Average cost to communities that have Wal-Mart stores is $900,000 per store, for subsidizing Wal-Marts pay rolls with welfare programs for their employees. How about the efforts by republicans to keep wages at levels below living wages? Hmmm... That is what you support, then you cry and cry why,why.. Simple because thats what you vote for. Over and over again. NAIVE!

Once again you're cherry picking Carol. The bottom line is that no WMD were found and American lives and treasure were wasted to bolster George W's ego. As the Downing Street memo stated;
"Military action was now seen as inevitable, Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."
A separate secret briefing paper for the meeting said Britain and the United States had to "create" conditions to justify a war.
And you're just gullible enough to believe he never had them and never used them and wouldn't develop them again as soon as the world wasn't watching anymore to unleash them here in our country with a vengeance paying the selected "delivery man's" family handsomely.

You forgot to mention that part.

So your claim is that health insurance was always affordable??
This coming from a person whose premiums are subsidized by the tax payers.
Now that's really funny.
The LA Times has been as friendly as possible to the Obama administration, but they can't ignore this. Today they broke the story that another massive lie around Obamacare has been told to the Congress and the American people. As you know "If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan" was ranked as the biggest lie of the year by the Washington Post. Well here comes an early contender for this years award.
The Republicans have been accusing the Obama administration of building into Obamacare an insurance plan for the insurance companies. A bailout if the insurance companies lost money under Obamacare. Their claim was that in the law was something called the temporary risk corridor program. Under that Republicans said the administration had allowed themselves a way to take tax dollars and bailout an insurance company that lost money. But the administration and the Democrats have denied that. Apparently the administration and the Democrats had been telling the truth...and didn't like it.
The LA Times reports that late last week hundreds of pages of new regulations were added to Obamacare. Their reporters went through it and found a few key paragraphs. The change in regulations essentially provides insurers with another backup: If they keep rate increases modest over the next couple of years but lose money, the administration will tap federal funds as needed to cover shortfalls. This could be hundreds of billions of dollars!
This is a classic bait and switch. The middle class will feel like they're getting a break on insurance premiums. As long as they don't look at the governments check book, they'll believe the Affordable Health Care Law is working. It only unravels if they realize they are paying double for their insurance, because the increase is being charged to their account in the form of more debt.
The Republicans are expected to go nuts over this, and the Democrats will point at the scene they are making and say 'look how fanatical those people are'. I would warn Republicans against making a big deal out of this. In the medical field it's called bedside manner. You're about to inform the patient (America) that it has a potentially fatal disease (debt). They are going to get a 2nd opinion from the Democrats that will contradict your diagnosis. If you come off as raving lunatics, the patient will believe the diagnosis of the other doctor who is telling them they're fine. Conservatives don't have the luxury of showing anger anymore. They have been rightly angry over a number of scandals, but it turns the middle off. It's vital that the middle hears and comprehends what your message is.

It means you are a f*cking idiot.
Temperatures spiked 17 years ago. Then they returned to a range more in line with the average but a little higher. They have been increasing since.
Looking at that spike 17 years ago & saying that it is the same temperature as it is now & claiming warming has stopped proves just how f*cking stupid you right whiners are.
It would like if a person was hurt in an accident 17 years ago & could not get any exercise & their weight went from 240 to 280 pounds. They recovered & exercised & their weight went down to 245 pound the next year. In the subsequent 17 years, they gained some each year & reached 280 pound in 2014.
Would a normal person pat himself on the back & claim they haven't gained any weight in 17 years?
Temperatures "spiked" less than 1 degree.

According to most scientific websites, it hasn't "spiked" in the last three to four years.

So maybe you can stop being hysterical now?
