A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans. Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different ... again. Little Johnny said, "Because I'm not an Obama fan."

The teacher asked, "Why aren't you an Obama fan?"

Johnny said, "Because I'm a Conservative." The teacher asked him why he's a Conservative.

Little Johnny answered, "Well, my Mom's a Conservative and my Dad's a Conservative, so I'm a Conservative."

Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, "Well, If your mom was a MO-RON and your dad was an lDlOT, what would that make you?"

Little Johnny's face lit up, "That would make me an Obama fan."

So, like the Nazis, you consider Jews a race? Interesting. Zionism is a political movement.
"'Loyalty to the Zionist state was substituted for loyalty to G-d, and the state was made into the modern "golden calf". Belief in the Torah and fulfillment of religious obligations in Zionist eyes became a private matter and not a duty for every Jew or for the Jewish people. The Zionists made divine law subject to party or parliamentary votes, and they set their own standards of conduct and ethics." (G. Neuburger, The Watcherfiles,com)
the Jews of Europe were right to conclude that they needed a state where they could control their own fate, rather than being at the mercy of bigots like you and Ghost....

however, south Florida might have been a better choice for the establishment of a Jewish state....

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Will Kane reports firefighters struggled to control the blaze because of a water main break.
This was the largest quake to hit the Bay Area since the 6.9 magnitude quake hit Loma Prieta in 1989.
Leslie Gordon of the U.S. Geological Survey told the Associated Press the tremor struck at just before 3:30 a.m. Sunday. The epicenter was about six miles southwest of Napa, California, and about 50 miles west-southwest of Sacramento.
Jessica Turner of the U.S. Geological Survey told CBS San Francisco aftershocks of up to 5.0 are likely in the next week. There is only a 5 percent chance of a stronger quake during the next week. Already at least 25 aftershocks have rocked the region.
The USGS said the depth of the earthquake was just less than seven miles.
"A quake of that size in a populated area is of course widely felt throughout that region," Randy Baldwin, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colorado, told the Associated Press. "The 6.0 is a sizeable quake for this area. It's a shallow quake."
Throughout the region, locals have reported the quake was felt as a long, rolling, shaking motion with several peaks of movement lasting for an extended time.
The California Highway Patrol reports some power outages.
The CHP is closing a bridge on Highway 37 in Vallejo while they inspect it for possible damage.
Widespread power outages are impacting Napa, and there are reports of minor damage across the region, mainly items falling off kitchen shelves and stores with broken bottles.
Callers to local radio stations and locals checking in on social media reported a significant shaking motion in the city of Napa, lasting for an extended time.
People as far away as the South Bay and Davis reported being woken up by the quake, which was centered 6.7 miles beneath Earth's surface.
Sonoma County also reported significant effects from the quake. The shaking was especially strong there because of the nature of the land being on alluvial gravel, sand and silt deposits, reports CBS San Francisco.
"Now that was a real earthquake," exclaimed San Francisco Sunset district resident Matt Wandell.

Location of magnitude 6 earthquake in California on August 24, 2014 CBS NEWS
The White House said President Obama, who is returning from an often-interrupted two-week vacation today, has been briefed on the earthquake. A White House spokesperson said, "federal officials are in touch with state and local responders and the President will continue to receive updates."
the Napa earthquake was relatively minor....

Seriously? Goldwater suggested using atomic bombs in North Vietnam to defoliate forests and destroy bridges, roads, and railroad lines. That's what you consider a good alternative? Geez

Stop freaking out about ISIS
Now that Ferguson, Missouri, is not producing enough tear gas to keep CNN's attention, I couldn't help but notice Chuck Hagel bouncing in his chair, talking about how ISIS is a greater peril than anything mankind has faced since the saber-toothed tiger. Somewhere, just off screen, John McCain is preparing two lists: people we should have bombed, and people we should bomb now. There's a big CNN fear graphic on the screen right this moment asking "Does ISIS have cells in the US?" There's a queue extending out into the parking lot of politicos waiting their turn to shake a finger at President Obama for not rushing back to the White House to deal with this Urgent Threat of Unprecedented Proportion. While wearing a tie. As God intended.
You know how much threat ISIS represents to the United States? None. That's how much. Exactly none. If there was a value less than none, then it would be that, but there's not, so none is the answer.
You know what does represent a threat to the the United States, a bona fide danger to our continued existence as the land of the semi-free and occasionally bravish? Acting as if every person who says they want to turn the United States into dictatorial hell hole, is capable of making the United States their bitch. ISIS is a ragtag organization on the far side of the world, armed mostly with the discards we either sold to the last set of thugs (note: proper use of the term) who used the gear to cow their relatives, or the stuff we left sitting around because bringing the old stuff back threatened all those contracts for building new stuff. ISIS could no more threaten the United States than Lindsey Graham could punch God in the nose. The existential threat level is green. Or at least, it should be.
As the Deputy Undersecretary of Pogo might say, we have determined the source of the threat, and we're it.

you're just pissed because President Obama did what President Dumbya couldn't
Wouldn't it have been better to kill Bin Laden "before" the 3,000 deaths?
I'm pissed because slick willie Clinton had the chance to do more, including killing Bin Laded but was too busy with his willie, leaving Bush to deal with Clinton's mess.

FOX contributor Erick Erickson....
I Increasingly Find Conflict Between My Faith and Some Conservative Discourse
Were I to recreate this site, I think it would have no comments section. Disqus is just horrible. I do not recommend it to anyone. And it just helps further what I see on so much social media these days. As much as the internet can bring people together of like mind, it also can help shrill minorities of people think their views are more mainstream than they are. That then emboldens them further.
I am heartened by this post; I hope the other false Christians on here read and think.
Many Christians, including myself, felt the same way about the immigrant children as Erick Erickson. He, too wanted expedited deportations and a secure border. But wanted to make sure the children, some victims of human trafficking, were taken care of, fed, and comforted."

I took a lot of heat for strongly supporting that same position on here.

Erickson was speaking from a Christian conservative's point of view.

He also wrote, "I’m a conservative before I’m a Republican. But before I’m a father or husband, I am a Christian. My politics have to be balanced by my faith. That faith requires me to put faith, hope, mercy, and grace ahead of much, including a lot of short term political gain. And sometimes that requires me to rely on Christ for justice, not the government."

Not all conservatives and Republicans are Christians. Just like not all Democrat liberals are atheists.

More Democrat liberals want to rely on the government instead of Christ...as Erickson pointed out since, as a Christian conservative, he could not do. Neither can I. Neither can many non-Christian conservatives.

As a liberal democrat, can you? Most democrats, Christian or not, seem to have no problem with it.

HMMM. So you are saying because Sharpton referred to Brown as a "gentle giant" he is a voice for the looters? You seem to be wearing colored blinders. How conveniently you ignored the FACT that he told them being violent was a betrayal to Brown's name. THAT is not the voice of a looter.
I don't like Al Sharpton but, unlike you, I don't let my personal opinion of the man warp my brain to the point where I can't see straight. You really need to see someone about your anger issues.

It only proves we were paying the Pakistanis big sums of money to keep him and his concubines hidden in plain sight.
And the Pakistani doctor who helped play a major role in finding him was put away and forgotten about by this administration.
There was no political advantage in putting pressure on the Pakistanis to free him. While Obama took all the credit for the decade long effort to find and kill bin Laden.
All he had to do was give the go ahead once the long search that began under Bush had ended. Anyone could have done that.
What took courage was making the tough decisions that led to his discovery. Obama doesn't "do" tough decisions. Except which golf course to grace his presence on any given day.
UM.... NO... NOPE... THAT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE, DEAR... OH, NEVER MIND...

the idea that the death of one man in any way provides comfort to the victims of 9/11 is absurd.....

the enemy responsible for 9/11 is radical Islam, not bin Laden....

In fact, as Media Matters for America documented, the Gorelick memo merely clarified long-unwritten restrictions on the sharing of information between the FBI's intelligence arm and the Justice Department's criminal division, and had no impact on communications between the FBI and the CIA, the Department of Defense, or any other agencies. Former Attorney General John Ashcroft stated in his testimony before the 9-11 Commission that the Gorelick memo provided the "basic architecture" for the 1995 guidelines established by Reno, which formalized rules for intelligence sharing that were already in place. And as the 1995 guidelines clearly state, the Gorelick memo and the guidelines applied only to intelligence sharing "between the FBI and the Criminal Division" within the Justice Department, not between the Justice Department and any other agency such as the CIA:
http://mediamatters.org/research/2009/01/14/o...
Media Matters is part of the problem. Just like you. Find a more credible and honest source.

Look up "Clinton under fire for taking illegal donations from Chinese" and the timing of that to the "wall" going up between the FBI and the CIA.

Let me know what you find.
