While you can sit here and post all of this liberal blatherskite, it still doesn't eradicate the fact that Obama is capable of taking responsibility for his hapless leadership. As reiterated before, this dolt has yet to hold himself accountable for anything he's done. Never have I seen a person as narcissistic and sanctimonious as he is. Obama is a joke - always has been, always will be.
Far more a reflection on your hatred, fanaticism and political infection than it is reality. You sound like Carol. That's about a big of insult I can give as of now. You idiots that spread all of that crap daily are nothing more than political hacks who put your party ahead of all Americans.

Yes but you said "sounds like the cop fired four non-lethal shots and then was forced to drop the gentle giant when he kept coming". The pathologist said he could not determine if Brown was charging the officer or surrendering. Like too many others, you are spreading a lie.
if he was surrendering instead of charging, he would likely have turned away at the first shots....

still nothing proving any criminal action by the cop.....

IVANPAH DRY LAKE, Calif. Workers at a state-of-the-art solar plant in the Mojave Desert have a name for birds that fly through the plant's concentrated sun rays "streamers," for the smoke plume that comes from birds that ignite in midair.

Federal wildlife investigators who visited the BrightSource Energy plant last year and watched as birds burned and fell, reporting an average of one "streamer" every two minutes, are urging California officials to halt the operator's application to build a still-bigger version.

The investigators want the halt until the full extent of the deaths can be assessed. Estimates per year now range from a low of about a thousand by BrightSource to 28,000 by an expert for the Center for Biological Diversity environmental group.

The deaths are "alarming. It's hard to say whether that's the location or the technology," said Garry George, renewable-energy director for the California chapter of the Audubon Society. "There needs to be some caution."

The bird kills mark the latest instance in which the quest for clean energy sometimes has inadvertent environmental harm. Solar farms have been criticized for their impacts on desert tortoises, and wind farms have killed birds, including numerous raptors.

"We take this issue very seriously," said Jeff Holland, a spokesman for NRG Solar of Carlsbad, California, the second of the three companies behind the plant. The third, Google, deferred comment to its partners.

The $2.2 billion plant, which launched in February, is at Ivanpah Dry Lake near the California-Nevada border. The operator says it's the world's biggest plant to employ so-called power towers.

More than 300,000 mirrors, each the size of a garage door, reflect solar rays onto three boiler towers each looming up to 40 stories high. The water inside is heated to produce steam, which turns turbines that generate enough electricity for 140,000 homes.

I'd like for you to enlighten me on how demanding accountability out of the White House signifies fanaticism and hatred most importantly? It's become abundantly clear who the fanatics are and it's not coming from me or my side of the aisle. This notion that someone is hateful for questioning Obama is asinine and looney. The idea that Obama is sacrosanct from criticism illustrates who the fanatics are. Needless to say, you Obama followers are the people who put yourselves before the country because you have this misguided obsession with defending him due to his race.

Last time I checked, there are whites in the Democrat Party. Limbaugh is absolutely right and you can't handle truth about how racially divisive the left is. All most of your party does is codify and divide based on race and gender. That said, you're just another low information voting liberal.

Please explain how claiming someone may have been on drugs is racist? Do you automatically equate drug usage with minorities? That said, sounds like you're a racist to me! By the way, who specifically called for Brown to be killed on Fox?

The indictment of Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry over abuse of power and coercion is reminiscent of the way that political dissent was handled in the Soviet Union, legal scholar and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said.
Dershowitz, who made clear he would never vote for Rick Perry, said Monday the governor's indictment was driven by politics and is representative of "what happens in totalitarian societies."

Where in the hell did you get that stupid quote from? It sucks.
Jesus was for peace and Mohammad was for killing infidels - which he did by the thousands. Jesus was sober. Mohammad did hallucinatory drugs and was a pedophile.
Moses was for "unity"???? Then why in the hell did he leave the Egyptians in the dust and kill those charioteers chasing the Jews across the Red Sea?
Lady, stop drying your hair in the microwave.
She got it from Madonna's liberal loon--- so called Rabbi, Yehuda Berg, he is now now being sued for sexual assault and threatening to beat and kill student at the Kabbalah center for not having sex with him. Where do the liberals come up with these loons? USM since 1948 is a weird-o, but she loves muzzies.
