The FBI is investigating a Muslim youth center in Minneapolis for ISIS recruitment.

Apparently, Minneapolis has become a breeding ground for ISIS recruitments.

You have a question about Rice's guilt? Did you see the video of him knocking is wife out and then dragging her unconscious body from the elevator car? How can you say the media ruined Rice's wife's life?
Peace
1. the "punch" is not really visible, just the result

2. what is Mrs. Rice's version?

3. was she drunk as a skunk?

4. how come Rice gets slammed, but rappers get away with worse?

5. Galt doesn't give a damn about Ray Rice, so go ahead and hang him...and turn he and his wife into welfare bums...

more seriously, "guilt" implies criminal charges and a trial, neither of which has occurred.....

What does an engineer do? Well, if you look, you'll see the architect curriculum is an engineering curriculum. So, in your opinion, every building every constructed is ugly.
... non functional.... that's a laugh. Here's how it works.
A scientist designs your turn indicator on your car. An engineer makes it work a million times without failure at a price you can afford.
Amazing feats, perhaps?
American engineers went to the moon with a slide rule and pencil and paper. In front of you in your laptop is more computing power than existed in the entire world when Americans went to the moon.
So, tell us what you have been able to achieve now that you have more computing capability than the entire world had when American engineers went to the moon with slide rules and pencil and paper.
... you have a fine arts degree, don't you?
Ah! So you designed the Morton Thiokol rubber O-ring then?

Or were you in charge of the Maconda rig?

Personally I think he should go to prison.
how many similar "assaults" occur in Atlantic City casino hotels every day, almost none of which are prosecuted???....

a trial would create enormous negative publicity for a dying city....

and charges of selective prosecution.....

New GAO report finds six fed agencies that lacked implementation of oversight activities for contracted employees

Although the six federal agencies that GAO reviewed (the Departments of Energy (DOE), Homeland Security (DHS), State, and Transportation (DOT), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM)) generally established security and privacy requirements and planned for assessments to determine the effectiveness of contractor implementation of controls, five of the six agencies were inconsistent in overseeing the execution and review of those assessments, resulting in SECURITY lapses.

For example, in one agency, testing did not discover that background checks of contractor employees were not conducted. The following table shows the degree of implementation of oversight activities at selected agencies.

The first known name of ISIL was Al Qaida in Iraq then they migrated (due to US military in Iraq)to Syria where they grew into ISIS and now they are known as ISIL.

Liberals will tell you that ISIL is not affiliated with AQ....shows how much they know!

Obama is stupid too for claiming AQ "was on the run"....and ISIL is the JV in terrorist organizations. You are right they are here in our country right now!

No there isn't, agreed, but we're not a democracy. There are about a dozen forms of socialism. I personally don't have a problem with it at a state level. One example is Alaska distributing oil royalties.
That's the point.

The reich wingers are complaining about not having utopia.

And they've targeted the non cons as their source of the problem.

The same way that 1930's German guy targeted the jews and others as problems for their county.

Why, it was bushie boy!
And did he achieve his objective?
Why no, he didn't.
And was he able to get himself out of the worldly mess he created?
Why no, he didn't. He just walked away.
And the best you can do is complain about the guy whose been trying to clean up the mess.
Reich wingers have no sense of accountability or responsibility....
It was Islamic jihadists who got us into this mess. The new Islamic State doesn't discriminate who the infidels are. They want a worldwide Caliphate...(the same Caliphate, by the way, Beck warned us about and liberals laughed at)...and you either convert or you die. Doesn't matter your nationality.

So, yes, the Islamic jihadists got us into this mess. But Obama's lack of leadership and limited world vision has made it much worse.

Want to not be on welfare? Here's how you can be 100 percent certain to never need welfare.
1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study something useful to the economy while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job and show up for work every day on time.
5) Do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
6) Don't participate in criminal activity.
7) Become a student of your profession.
Now, what's so difficult about that? If anyone does the above, they will never be poor... at least not in what the United States used to be before the Democrats propped Obama up to look like he's the President.
Here is another:

8) Don't expect a low paying, low or unskilled job to pay you a "living wage." If you can't earn enough to feed your family, have fewer kids, go to school part time and learn enough to pay your bills.

Obviously, the minimum wage McDonald's workers who were protesting for $15 an hour last week because they've been there for years and don't make enough money, aren't practicing #8.
