but he didn't have that proof. he openly lied to them to you to me to the entire world about his reasons for wanting to invade Iraq.

Wasn't the federal government already struggling to find the funds for these programs - even before Obamacare has really kicked in and the employer mandate now being delayed?
The concern used to be how much longer SS and Medicare could be sustained - even before Obamacare came onto the scene.
Where do all these liberals think all of this money is coming from?
The only way to pay for massive government-sponsored health care and expanding Medicare is to tax ALL Americans up to their eyeballs.
But that sure would level the playing field, wouldn't it? Which is one of the main objectives of Marxism - if I'm not mistaken.
Mindless gibberish.

Another favorite conservative retort to calls for stricter gun regulation has been to point to California's “liberal” gun laws, which supposedly didn’t help Santa Barbara at all. However, the fact that the shooter possessed only 10-bullet magazines and no assault weapon—or what he could legally buy—clearly did help. As terrible as this was, it could have been much worse if the gun fetishists had their way, and any manner of weapon or magazine was for sale.

Additionally, and I know this is a tough concept to understand, but we have these territories separated only by an imaginary boundary known as states. They border one another. People can drive across them at will, as they often do from Arizona—where gun laws are among the most lenient in the U.S.—to California. It is also quite easy to drive from California to Nevada, which also has lax gun laws.

This might be why when John Patrick Bedell, another angry and troubled man with a hatred for his own government, decided to try to assassinate public servants at the Pentagon, he went next door to Nevada to get his guns no questions asked, once he couldn’t pass a background check in California. Wow, that was hard!

Of course, there is one easy case study that proves the rule: Hawaii, which is separated from every other state by quite a bit of ocean. The Aloha State, which boasts the lowest gun ownership rate and among the strongest gun laws in our country, has the lowest gun violence rate, according to The Law Center To Prevent Gun Violence. Meanwhile, in Arizona, with those ridiculously nonexistent gun laws, you're five times more likely to die from a gun than in Hawaii.

This pattern extends throughout the country, from lax regulation states like Mississippi and Alaska (18.3 and 17.6 gun deaths, per 100,000 people, respectively) to strong regulation states like Rhode Island and Massachusetts (3.5 and 3.6 gun deaths per 100,000, respectively). This really isn't that hard.

The majority of the country had already done that. We've been constantly told we're really racists only after Obama and his liberal base decided to divide us for political purposes.

It's time to move on, my liberal friend. Start speaking out about the importance of getting an education or learning a skill and waiting to have children until you can afford them among the black community. There needs to be more black voices with that kind of influence if anything is going to change for those who want to look elsewhere or have someone else to blame.

In 2008 the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment did secure the right of law-abiding, responsible adults to have handguns in their homes for protection. Yet the court went out of its way to acknowledge that most forms of gun regulation remain constitutionally permissible.“Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited,” Justice Antonin Scalia, explained. In a sentence the NRA and many gun-rights extremists apparently missed, Scalia wrote that the Second Amendment is “not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”
Let’s say that again: Justice Scalia, hero of the most intransigent conservatives in the country, stated unequivocally that restrictions of Second Amendment rights are constitutional.
Indeed, Scalia’s opinion in Heller warned that “nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt” on a wide range of gun laws, including bars on felons and the mentally ill from possessing guns, restrictions on guns in “sensitive places such as schools and government buildings,” or laws “imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.” These categories capture the vast majority of gun laws in America.
In short, there’s plenty of room under the Second Amendment for gun control.
In recognizing the legitimacy of many gun laws, the Supreme Court did no more than adhere to the text of the Second Amendment. In the part of the amendment that gun-rights absolutists usually ignore, the Founders extolled the importance of a “well regulated Militia.”(For years, the NRA’s headquarters displayed a sign promoting “the right of the people to keep and bear arms,” conveniently omitting the amendment’s opening clause.) Gun advocates are right that this language was not designed to limit the right to people serving in military organizations like the National Guard; the framers repeatedly said the “militia” was composed of we the people, ordinary citizens with our own guns. Yet it’s also clear that the framers thought that the people who make up the militia should be “well regulated”—trained, disciplined, and properly instructed by the government to use arms effectively, safely, and properly.
In other words, the American right to bear arms has always co-existed with gun regulation. The Founding Fathers had gun laws so restrictive that today’s NRA leaders would never support them: broad bans on possession of firearms by people thought to be untrustworthy; militia laws that required people to appear at musters where the government would inspect their guns; safe-storage laws that made armed self-defense difficult; and even early forms of gun registration. The founders who wrote the Second Amendment did not think it was a libertarian license for anyone to have any gun anytime and anywhere they wanted.
And yet today, Second Amendment radicals like Rand Paul and NRA chief Wayne LaPierre blindly insist that Obama’s gun proposals infringe on the Second Amendment. Apparently, they haven’t read Heller, or many of the approximately 400 federal court decisions since Heller on the constitutionality of a wide variety of gun laws—and why would they? They know that if they did, they’d have to face the reality that the overwhelming majority of gun laws have been upheld.

<quoted text> Obama's Lie of the Year: Anything that Comes Out of His Mouth
Rubio says 300,000 will lose their individual health insurance coverage under Obamacare and won't be able to enroll in new plans

We sent Rubio’s statement to a few health care experts to see if they thought it was accurate. What we generally heard was that while policy holders are losing that particular insurance plan, they do have other options.

"There is some truth to saying that they are losing their coverage plans they are now in -- they are no longer available," said Timothy Jost, a law professor at William and Lee and co-author of the casebook Health Law. "Presumably those are plans with very high deductibles, high out-of-pocket costs."

However, "it is also inaccurate saying people are losing coverage."

Christopher J. Conover, a health research scholar at Duke University and adjunct scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, told PolitiFact Florida that these consumers are losing their current health plan.

"Most of your readers might interpret ‘losing coverage’ as meaning these individuals will become uninsured. Some in fact will be, but not the majority....," he said.

Conover said that the same situation is happening to millions of consumers nationwide.

"This eventually will touch millions of Americans," he told PolitiFact Florida.

Our ruling

Rubio said, "300,000 people are going to lose their individual coverage because of Obamacare. Now those people next year, they don’t have health insurance."

Rubio was referring to letters Florida Blue started sending to consumers in the individual market in August. The letters do tell consumers that their particular plan will end due to the Affordable Care Act. That’s because the plans typically don’t offer the comprehensive coverage that is required under the new law.

However, the letters also state that consumers will have "continuous health care coverage" and assigned them a particular plan, or gave them the option to contact Florida Blue and choose another plan. So their coverage is not dependent on being able to buy insurance through healthcare.gov , the government’s online marketplace.

We rate this claim Mostly False.

The response from the insurgents and al Qaeda claiming Iraq the frontlines was not anticipated - so criticize Bush for that if you want to. But there are no crystal balls in war and Hillary, Joe Biden, Harry Reid and John didn't have one either when they voted for the original mission.
They just left Bush to hang in the wind as soon as it got ugly and saw a political advantage to do so.
It's why they're weasels. And Nancy Pelosi is their queen. She was the first to start screaming at the top of her lungs "Bush lied!"
The truth is Nancy Pelosi lied. Because that's what weasels do. They weasel into situations pretending to be something they're not and, when confronted, they weasel out. They have no true "spine"..
You keep ignorning the obvious...111 Democrats fells victim to Bush's lies about seeking a U.N. Resolution. Democrats were very clear about their distaste for any unilateral military action. They expressed their intent in voting for Bush's proposal was only to show the United Nations and our allies that Congress supported Bush's attempt to secure a U.N. resolution.
