Oh, yeah. You missed this one.
What Al Qaeda leader?... and, since you claim to know who and where the leader is....
How do you know Al Qaeda disavowed ISIS?
You forgot to put who in Al Qaeda is speaking, and if we know who in Al Qaeda was speaking, why is he still alive today?
Why hasn't Obama killed him yet?
Or, did Obama surrender to Al Qaeda?
ISIS is Al Qaeda, moron. You have to clear the smoke and mirrors to see it. Same ideology. Same tactics. Same goal. Same people.
You missed it, dumbass
Are you now claiming the leader of Al Qaeda is relevant & the US should find him? Funny chit coming from one who declared Bin Laden irrelevant and rambling on & on how killing Bin Laden had no effect.
If ISIS is Al Qaeda, why did the leader of Al Qaeda disavow ISIS?
It is a simple GD question that you keep running from.
You are so f*cking ignorant you can't tell ISIS tactics from Al Qaeda tactics. This is another reason why Tea Party people are considered to be dumber than sh*t.

The constitution does say congress is to provide and maintain a navy. The Marines are part of the navy. The Air Force was once part of the Army.
The coast guard was, until recently, part of the Dept. of the Treasury.
The federal foot creeps slowly.
All what you say is true.

But it's not relevant to DB's point (though the Navy part is disputable.)

And the Coast Guard is really more of a ping pong ball today.

You are against the rights of folks who protest? Folks who gather together on public property should be arrested? Is it against the law to be anti abortion murder? Is it against the law to be pro life?

It's a matter of human decency to give people their privacy and respect their rights; these people are harassing the patients of the clinics; just like the church that protests at peoples funerals; that is not protesting to me, it is harassment.

Particularly in Kissimmee where people tend to travel in herds__herds that spill out into the common and parking areas, smoking joking, leaning on other's autos, playing chinga music.full blast etc. Lily__you probably have to see it to believe it.
I suspect that PP will come to it's senses and move a short distance away.
I am not familiar with Kissimmee, is that what is happening there at that clinic? I'm sure that the police can do something about that with anti loitering laws; same as with the protestors.

Here's something you can put in your self-help therapy for your cognitive dissonance.
More accurately, it was the Democrat CRA Recession.
More specifically, it was the Democrat Supported the War in Iraq in Exchange for the Republicans Giving Them No Effective Oversight of the Democrat

The first step to defeat cognitive dissonance is to acknowledge the facts. I hope this helps you.
"Marxist"s are materialists same as Libertarians.
Both Marxists and Libertarians usually have government jobs.

Yet your president and his thugs deny rights of citizens by abusing government power like Lois Lerner and the (of all agencies) IRS. I agree with you about the people at funerals, yet you on the left have no problem abusing power when you have a majority in government.

That is far worse than harassment. It is draconian, yet you on the left condone it and defend it.

That is why I left the Democrat Party.

You on the left have no dignity.

Opposition to the 2010 health care law has been above 50 percent for over a year. And that continues to be true, as the latest Fox News national poll finds voters oppose the law by a 52-41 percent margin.

Support for Obamacare has been as high as 43 percent (May 2014) and gone as low as 36 percent (January 2014).

The number opposing the law has ranged from 49 percent (June 2012) to a record-high 59 percent (January 2014).

As in the past, the new poll shows that most Democrats favor Obamacare (74 percent), while most Republicans (84 percent) and;

---> independents (61 percent) are against it. <---

No__you haven't been following along. It's a brand new medial arts building across from a new medical center__it's very nice.

And I've not read of any on site protesting but just protesting to the city commission, code compliance etc..

It's the PP clients and those with them that are, or will be problematic__disruptive to the nearby medical practices and their patients.

Nice try :-)

"Often when they do I throw out my favorite statistic: 84 % of all statistics are made up. I say it deadpanned.

Often I’ll get some people look at me like,“really?”“It’s true. Nielsen just released the number last month.”

No. It’s irony.

Or as Mark Twain popularized the quote most attributed to the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Benjamin Disraeli,“there are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics.” The quote is meant to highlight the deceiving but persuasive power of numbers.

In the end make sure you’re suspicious of all data. Ask yourself the obvious questions:

- who did the primary research on this analysis?

- who paid them? Nobody does this stuff free. You’re either paid up front “sponsored research” or you’re paid on the back-end in terms of clients buying research reports.

- what motives might these people have had?

- who was in the sample set? how big was it? was it inclusive enough?

- and the important thing about data for me … I ingest it religiously. I use it as one source of figuring out my version of the truth. And then I triangulate. I look for more sources if I want a truer picture.

I always try to think to myself,“what would the opposing side of this data analysis use to argue its weaknesses?”

Statistics aren’t evil. They’re just a bit like the weather – hard to really predict.
And as they say about economists and weathermen – they’re the only two jobs you can keep while being wrong nearly 100% of the time "
