Too bad you weren't listening. His qualifications to lead a nation and his past experiences in politics barely qualified him for the role of junior Senator. His past connections, affiliations and his own admissions of leaning towards Marxism were out there. The propagandists tried their best to minimize it but you had the responsibility of knowing who you were voting for and it shouldn't have been based on his skin color.

WTF is your point. Are you one of the 38% that still thinks he is doing a good job. Since you did so much thinking how good he would be, did you ever check his FKing voting record? Did you read his books (That he didn't write)? Did you believe every thing he said without checking? Did you vote for him a second time after it was abundantly clear that his administration was not transparent and was never going to be? And if Iraq was such a mistake, what was Odonothing doing destabilizing Egypt, Libya, and Syria? Yes, their rulers were despots, but they were not causing us or anybody else a problem. BTW, did you get a little suspicious when he threw in with the Muslim Brotherhood?

You really are one stupid person, you actually think that a person that served in the military 37 years ago that they have a responsibility to be civil when they are playing with pigs like you??? Get real pusseee. The army makes men not cry babies like you, I would have had you crying like a girl you wimp. My men loved me and I loved them, I never asked them to do anything that I wouldn't do.. You are a typical traitor you use your twisted and warped views like the Duck Dynasty idiot. So quit crying on my shoulder, be a man for once in your life... Soo you think you are a good spokesperson for your alleged 21 years in the USAF...A stone hypocrite you are. Now from me to you GFY.

Bill O'Reilly Gives Viewers The Most Ironic Warning In History
"When you hear something on a partisan-driven program, do not believe it!" Bill O'Reilly told his audience on Wednesday.
"Distortions are how some people make a living," he warned his viewers.

The Experts speaks.
finally something he knows something about. he may not know a damn thing about black people, but he sure does make a good living distorting.
FOX viewers are so gullible O'Riley has found it impossible to find anything so outlandish they won't lap it up. I'll bet he and Hannity make bets about who can pass off the most bizarre lie as fact.

Huffington Post hires former Washington Redskin WR Donte Stallworth to cover national security.
Let's see...apart from the fact that Stallworth is NOT a journalist, IS a 9/11 ¨Truther¨ AND pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter for striking and killing a 59-year-old man in Florida in 2009, this seems like a great hire!
First of all, Dante has been hired as a "National Security fellow", not a "journalist". According to Huffington Post jobs website, "Fellowships usually lasts six months, giving our Fellows the opportunity to discover whether HuffPost is the right place to launch their career."

Now, on Donte's conviciton, Huffington Post Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim had this to say “We obviously believe in redemption and second chances."

We wouldn't expect a conservative to understand that concept.

As far as his truther comments, Stallworth has responded, "I no longer feel the way I did in that tweet 5 years ago.... After a lot of reading and researching on it, my views changed... and that's ok.... Credit goes to James Bamford, whose great book disabused me of that stuff and showed what a disastrous intelligence failure 9/11 was."

It was better to eliminate any potential threat after 9/11 in the Middle East. Didn't you hear Hillary's passionate speech on the Senate floor as to why Saddam had to go? She was one of the other 111 Democrats who stood by Bush to remove him from power.

Your assumed next presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, voted for the Iraq War.

Others have a worm. Some have a prawn.
Ever heard of the joke about ordering salmon for dinner and being served a prawn salad.
Well being dumped on with something unordered in life can lead to suffering by all parties involved.
One argument to this is that brain evolution had stopped. And people were waking up brain-dead.
And (that this is no conspiracy at all) that in want to a given answer animals moved into to the equation with a plausible answer.
That the animals are not the parasite but a temporary slave. Until the world figures out how to keep people both sane and alive.
Nostradamus would have us believe on the other hand that "behold a wicked coming" of our brains being taken (not eaten by the parasite) for "talking heads".
I am afraid to announce that talking heads amongst the cryogenic community is true.
Nostradamus was and still is in my estimation a genius.

On Tuesday, LA Weekly reported that several upscale restaurants in the City of Angels will be adding a 3 percent surcharge to cover their employees' healthcare costs, a trend that has been gaining steam since Obamacare launched nearly one year ago.
Beginning on September 1, restaurants Lucques, Tavern, A.O.C, and a few offshoots all added a 3 percent Obamacare surcharge to customers' checks, explicitly stating in a press release their decisions hinged on covering employee healthcare costs.
Lucques Group, Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne, owners of the restaurants, also named several other restaurant groups that will be duplicating their efforts; Restaurants Rustic Canyon, The Hungry Cat and Melisse were among those mentioned.
All republican owned. Who would have guessed.
