'Restaurants Suddenly Shut Down'

'At least four Arby’s restaurants in our area closed down without warning Friday night.

The fast food chain’s locations in Scranton, Kingston, the Lycoming Mall and the Wyoming Valley Mall were all shut down without an explanation.

The owner of the franchise did file for bankruptcy previously.'

You are perfectly welcome to disagree with affirmative action.
But when you look at a top university educated black man & scream affirmative action then you are saying the only way a black man can get in those schools is through affirmative action. Then it is a racist comment.

Punishing Millions For A Proofreading Error

The two Republicans’ decision rests on a glorified typo in the Affordable Care Act itself. Obamacare gives states a choice. They can either run their own health insurance exchange where their residents may buy health insurance, and receive subsidies to help them pay for that insurance if they qualify, or they can allow the federal government to run that exchange for them. Yet the plaintiffs’ in this case uncovered a drafting error in the statute where it appears to limit the subsidies to individuals who obtain insurance through “an Exchange established by the State.” Randolph and Griffith’s opinion concludes that this drafting error is the only thing that matters. In their words,“a federal Exchange is not an ‘Exchange established by the State,’” and that’s it. The upshot of this opinion is that 6.5 million Americans will lose their ability to afford health insurance, according to one estimate.

Blame it on our version of German propagandists in the 1930s and 1940s.

They continually depict Israel as the aggressors and Palestinians as the victims...not unintentionally.

34% of those polled also believe Fox News is "bad" even when they admit they never watch it despite its being rated as the most trusted news cable channel on television (according to the most recent Public Policy Polling survey) and O'Reilly still topping the list of the most trusted news commentator.

Thirty-five percent of those polled trust Fox more than any other news outlet with PBS in a distant second place at 14 percent and ABC News third at 11 percent.

You are an obvious political clown and would have no earthly idea that there are those that see things through the eyes of right and wrong using only the facts to reach that decision. Israel is a rogue nation and a by product of rich Jews right here in America. Have you ever stopped to think why would we give a shit one way or the other? The Palestinians are only trying to survive and were never any problem until the possessive Jews arrived on the scene. Their expansionism is well documented. We have created this monster yet they thump their nose at us whenever they choose. Billions of our dollars flow there every year. Their lobby is the strongest one in Washington, so they fully know how to pull the strings...While idiots like Galt and carol sing their praises and all the while their pockets are being picked... Talk about pawns.
Earth to Ghost:

Obama's campaigns were funded by "rich Jews", who also contribute most of the money at his campaign fundraisers....

low-rent black scumbags like you contribute nothing and demand everything....

I have explained my role in the military, very un-soldier like to belittle another, I see all as being equally important..It's the ones that pretend that I hate. It seems way more common with Baggers. But you can also thank a Jew for many familys being killed in Gaza also.
Tell me, what are they supposed to do? Negotiate with people that don't think they have a right to exist? These people are backed by a country that wants to wipe Israel off the map. What would you do when you're being rocketed every day?

BTW, I apologize for the un-soldier like behavior.

Democrats major fear in 2014 mid terms was not energizing the Democratic base to vote.
Republican blunders, court decisions and the birth control issues my lessen this problem.
Democrats have done well defending women from the "War on Women" in the past.

Time to change the record. It's stuck.

We should blame all of our problems on the propagandists and the Federal Reserve System.
