Sounds like your b a l l s are tied up. I think a good blow from your wife should do the trick. Then maybe you'll be a little less assinnine.How Eric Cantor Sabotaged Himself
The No. 2 House Republican was expected to coast to victory Tuesday night—but went down in flames to largely unknown Tea Partier Dave Brat, who ran on an anti-immigration platform.
The shock defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by college professor Dave Brat is the type of upset that audiences wouldn’t believe in a Disney movie. Perhaps the most cinematic twist is that, at least in part, Cantor did this to himself. A toxic mix of ignoring grassroots Republicans in his district and becoming a lightning rod on the controversial issue of immigration reform meant that a future Speaker of the House became a former congressman Tuesday night.
Brat, the shock Republican nominee, is a professor of economics at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, but his surprising win in a safe GOP district based in the Richmond suburbs will elevate him to a national figure as he mustered a historic win against Cantor. Brat was dramatically outraised and outspent by the House majority leader. According to the last campaign finance report, Cantor had raised nearly $5.5 million, of which he spent over $5 million. In contrast, Brat, who had spent $122,000, had raised a total of $206,663. Brat also missed out on the support of outside groups after flaking on meetings with influential Washington conservatives whose support he was hoping to enlist.

Wow. You're so f_cking dumb you're actually misspelling "college." That's ironic in a teabag sort-of-way.
And Pelosi was wrong about the rate of return on welfare. It's much higher. It's the single largest profit generator in the nation, bar none. Think about it (if you can)- small businesses employ 85 percent of all US workers. So, ask yourself, how many of those small businesses would have ever been started if failure meant starvation and homelessness? I'm guessing not many. Our social safety nets give us the freedom to take risks. And that freedom created the greatest economy in the history of man.
And it was almost collapsed by the GOP. Saved from collapse by the democrats, namely, Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
By the way, sorry if most of the intelligence in the country is held by the liberal, progressive population. But it should be expected. It's a scientifically documented FACT that conservatives are dumb. Dozens of studies reveal the same thing, but this one's the most clear:

And you're the one who constantly brags about being 'college educated.'

So in essence what you are saying is the Republican party is about gone?
You're right there dude..........Over the last 20 years about 15% of Republicans have switched over to Democrat, I wonder why? LMAOI!
#57892 Jun 13, 2014
The GOP hates blacks, poor, gays, Latinos, women's rights, equal pay for women, against abortion, hates immigration reform and wonder why people are against them.
Brush up on your history son.

Former Obama Administration Official DESTROYS Obama’s Foreign Policy In One Tweet
Sometimes 140 characters is all you need.
That’s all Georgetown Law professor, Foreign Policy magazine columnist and former Obama administration official Rosa Brooks needed Thursday to dismantle the White House’s pathetic responses to the situations in Syria, Russia and Iraq.
US respnse 2 Syria,Russia,Iraq: 1)Huh? 2)We’re watching this closely 3)With concern. 4)Hey, stop- 5)We won’t tolerate that! 6)Mmm. Whatever.
— Rosa Brooks (@brooks_rosa) June 13, 2014
Short, concise, to the point.
Brooks served in the Defense Department from 2009 to 2011 as counselor to then-Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy.

Republicans love sending our soldiers into war, BUT..........
Why did 41 republican senators vote to block veteran benefits ?
Republicans voted and supported over 5 trillion to send them to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. But they block a 21 billion dollar bill to fund their promised benefits? Why?
I asked this question before, but no Republicans answered. Why?
One person said that they didn't like 350 million dollars that was in the bill and that is why they rejected it. But that is like saying that you are not going to spend 21 dollars to help yourself because of 35 cents. It doesn't make financial sense.
If Republicans were willing to go into debt to the tune of 5 trillion dollars to send people to war, why not spend and additional 21 billion to protect them when they come home? That is like saying:
We will spend $5,000.00 dollars to injure you, but we will not spend $21 dollars to help you when you come home, because we don't like .35 cents of that help which will go towards programs that we don't like.
Why are Republicans blocking this?
And you wonder why the American people hate them. No wonder they keep losing Presidential elections !!
Why do Republicans hate our soldiers ?

Watch: FOX News Caught Smearing Pres. Obama With Sneaky Editing, Gets Called Out....
See the shocking video here:
#57896 Jun 13, 2014
On Thursday, FOXNews’ The Five was caught shamelessly and deceptively editing a video clip of President Obama calling for comprehensive immigration reform in order to smear the president and immigrants by presenting the notion that his speech was condoning the release of violent,“hardened criminals” from prison.
Thankfully, host Bob Beckel called them out on the spot:
“I have been told not To criticize our own show, but that edit of barack obama was one of the most out of context! He was talking about people who are here, not are not criminals, who have families here!”
He continued,“If you actually believe that, you’re out of your mind. I can’t believe we’re going with this story!”
At this point, conservative hosts Eric Boiling crossed the line, suggesting that we should use a “catapault” to launch Mexican immigrants back across the border.
Beckel came back at him:
“As much as you guys don’t like Barack Obama, do you think, for a minute, that he would actually allow murderers to walk around the street!?”
Of course, at this point, conservative host Eric Boiling decided it was time to end the segment,“We gotta go.”
Yes folks, Faux Noise is the most trustworthy, unbiased news channel in the world! LMAO!

Faux Noise--I love the bimbos and their talking points. How long does it take one of them to memorize their lines? I love the Liberal finally called out the network. Too many times these guys make points that are pulled out of their arses, but they are slick at just switching the arguments over to their talking points. This is a national disgrace, this network. It is little more than a glorified reality show, 24/7.

Gallup: Majority Says Obama Not ‘Honest and Trustworthy’
June 12, 2014
Fifty-one percent of the Americans who responded to a Gallup poll conducted June 5-8 said that they do not believe the phrase “is honest and trustworthy” applies to President Barack Obama.
Gallup has asked Americans this question eight times over the last six years:“Thinking about the following characteristics and qualities, please say whether you think each applies or doesn't apply to Barack Obama. How about: Is honest and trustworthy.”
The latest poll, conducted June 5-8, was the first time that a majority said the description “is honest and trustworthy” does not apply to Obama.

What did you expect from a socialist.
#57900 Jun 13, 2014
Calling any woman a "bimbo" is degrading and sexist and insults all women. You probably use the n-word and gay slurs too when you disagree with someones opinion. Hypocrite.
You spend a lot of time watching FoxNews--good for you--but seem conflicted about talented, beautiful women. You can change the channel if it's too confusing for you. You don't HAVE to watch.
But then you'll be that much dumber.
#57901 Jun 13, 2014
WTF are you Dems REALLY this uneducated and dumb when you cant even remember what your most favorite Dem Pres Clinton did his last year he was president WOW What PEA brains you all are THINK…. After decades in U.S Manufacturing all of a sudden you read ‘made in China” and thought this just fell out of the Sky!!!!! Or Bush did trade relations with China!!!!!!!!!! D$M Dems got to be one of the stupidest people in the U.S. All you heard from CNN was Jobs went overseas, BUT as usual Lib news didn’t tell you WHY ….
So typical of the Dems mentality, Dems voted for the war and then you bitched about its cost, then get sidetracked on tax the rich, then cant put 2 and 2 together that the U.S lost 42,400 factories in 9 years 6.5 million factory jobs which that also caused the Housing collapse being people LOST THEIR JOBS and couldn’t pay their Mortgages. For every jobs loss 25 are affected and or lost. That puts 97 million jobs in play which just about accounts for ALL jobs loss in the recession.
Bacon hatrer you bitch about 2 trillion for the war when the U.S. lost 10s of trillions in jobs, real-estate value plummet. Unemployment coast and the list goes on. FYI welfare in 2000 was 434.3 billion MORE then the Defense budget,
I’m an expert in research and numbers, spent several YEARS researching US facts and History. I also have the actual transcript that day Clinton Signs China Trade Act China didn’t want to do this Clinton sent his OWN people over and in the 11th Hr China Gave in Why did Clinton do this? As Bleeding dems are Clinton was MORE concerned of China joining the WTO World Trade Organization to make China responsible for fair labor practice of its workers. Clinton also in his Speech thought WE were going to do great selling our recent technological Revolution products we created and China will buy from us!!!!! All they ended up buying from us in large quantities was RAW goods. H#LL US plastic Recycle from Pa etc went to Balt MD, loaded on a Ship, boated to China where they Melted down with Coal pollution then made a product and boated it to the US as Manf goods D#M imagine that environment polluted footprint alone
Clinton that personally spearheaded and signed the China Trade Act!!!!
The Plight of American Manufacturing
Since 2001, the U.S. has lost 42,400 factories --and its technical edge.
Chart showing US manf. Since the 40s look from 2000 the killer jobs loss timeline with Clinton signing.
Better Bureau of Labor statistics By 2009 U.S. has less manufacturing then before the bombing of Pearl harbor
US lost 6.5 million factory Jobs from 2000 tp 2009 For every job loss 15 others are affected and or lost.
Now over 60% of what we buy comes from foreign trade. This is why Obama Stimulus to US citizens was a joke when 60% of that money went to overseas becoming China profit and NO taxes paid to the U.S. on that China Profit.
#57902 Jun 13, 2014
Mr. Clinton made essentially the same argument in 1994 when he reversed himself, and said that despite his campaign promises he would no longer link the annual renewal of Chinese trade benefits to its human rights record. Over time, he said, trade would contribute to a lifting of political repression.
But in the six years since then, according to the annual reports published by the State Department, China's rights record has worsened.
Even as Mr. Clinton spoke, his advisers foresaw a fierce battle in Congress, where they are trying to win passage by mid-May, before the congressional elections heat up.
A vote against the bill, Mr. Clinton said, "will cost America jobs as our competitors in Europe, Asia and elsewhere capture Chinese markets that we otherwise would have served."
Bacon hater dems Clinton was a Idiot in an economy and didn’t even know a B.J was sex!!!!!
WASHINGTON, March 8 -- President Clinton today sent Congress his bill to usher China into the World Trade Organization. Clinton then opened a new front in the debate on the subject in his own party, arguing that opening China's markets will undermine Communist Party control.
WASHINGTON — President Clinton launched one of the most important legislative battles of his presidency Wednesday, sending Congress a long-awaited bill that would permanently throw open China's huge and rapidly expanding trade relationship with the United States.
Clinton sketched out the high stakes of the choice at hand and pledged to do everything he can to secure passage.
"It's a historic opportunity and a profound American responsibility," he told an audience of policymakers, China specialists, faculty and students at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. "It represents the most significant opportunity that we have had to create positive change in China since the 1970s, when President Nixon first went there, and later in the decade, when President Carter normalized relations."Critics, however, insist that approval of the legislation could be disastrous, opening the door to a huge outflow of U.S. jobs, giving a de facto green light to China's repressive human rights practices and rewarding Beijing's aggressive rhetoric concerning such issues as Taiwan.
President Clinton’s signing of a bill that permanently normalizes trade relations with China is expected to translate into billions of dollars in new sales for U.S. farmers, manufacturers and service companies.
Increased competition inside China, however, is expected to result in massive layoffs, especially in China’s state-run companies.
The House approved the legislation normalizing trade relations in May; the Senate passed it on Sept. 19. The measure revises a law from the mid-1970s that subjected trade relations with communist states to annual reviews.

Remarks on Signing Legislation on Permanent Normal Trade Relations With China
Entire transcript …Quote from Clinton Speech signing the China Trade Act causing the recession
Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you very much, Secretary Albright; Mr. Speaker; Senator Roth; Senator Moynihan; Chairman Archer; Representative Rangel. I thank you all so much for your steadfast leadership in this important cause.
I also want to thank Senator Lott and Senator Daschle in their absence and, indeed, all the Members who are here. And if you would just indulge me in one personal remark, this is probably the largest gathering of Members of Congress anywhere in Washington today, except in the Chambers of the House and Senate.
And I would like to take a moment to pay my respects to the memory of our friend Congressman Bruce Vento, who passed away earlier today, a great teacher, a great Representative, a wonderful human being.
I also want to join the previous speakers in thanking all those who worked so hard on it, Charlene Barshefsky and Gene Sperling, who accompanied her to China, and they worked on this deal until the 11th hour. We knew it would take until the 11th hour. We only hoped by then they wouldn’t be too tired to tell time, so we would be able to finish.
I thank Secretaries Glickman, Summers, and Mineta; and Secretary Slater, Secretary Shalala, who are here, John Podesta and Sandy Berger. I can’t thank Bill Daley and Steve Ricchetti enough for the extraordinary job they did to lead our efforts to secure passage of this initiative, along with Chuck Brain and Mary Beth Cahill.
I want to thank all the State and local officials, the retired officials and business leaders who helped us, and I would like to acknowledge two great champions of trade who I just saw in the audience; just because I’m glad to see them, former Congressman Sam Gibbons and former Congressman and Agriculture Secretary Mike Epsy. Thank you both for being here.
This is a great day for the United States and a hopeful day for the 21st century world. This signing ceremony marks the culmination of efforts begun almost 30 years ago by President Nixon, built on by President Carter, who normalized our relations with China, pursued firmly by Presidents of both parties to normalize tiers with China in ways that preserve our interests and advance our values.
During that time, China has grown more prosperous and more open. As the world economy becomes vastly more complex and interconnected, China’s participation in it, according to the rules of international trade, has only become more important for America, for Asia, and the world. Today we take a major step toward China’s entry into the World Trade Organization and a major step toward answering some of the central challenges of this new century. For trade with China will not only extend our Nation’s unprecedented economic growth, it offers us a chance to help to shape the future of the world’s most populous nation and to reaffirm our own global leadership for peace and prosperity.
#57904 Jun 13, 2014
Entire transcript Quote from Clinton Speech signing the China Trade Act
I guess I ought to point out that our work’s not over when I sign the bill. For China must still complete its WTO accession negotiations and live up to the agreements it has negotiated with us and our partners before it can join. But when it happens, China will open its markets to American products from wheat to cars to consulting services, and our companies will be far more able to sell goods without moving factories or investments there.
Beyond the economy, however, America has a profound stake in what happens in China, how it chooses to relate to the rest of the world, whether it is open to the world, respectful of human rights, upholding the rule of law at home and its dealings with other nations.
Of course, opening trade with China will not in and of itself lead China to make all the choices we believe it should. But clearly, the more China opens its markets, the more it unleashes the power of economic freedom, the more likely it will be to more fully liberate the human potential of its people. As tariffs fall, competition will rise, speeding the demise of huge state enterprises. Private firms will take their place and reduce the role of government in people’s daily lives. Open markets will accelerate the information revolution in China, giving more people more access to more sources of knowledge. That will strengthen those in China who fight for decent labor standards, a cleaner environment, human rights, and the rule of law.
We also will continue to press China to meet its commitments on stopping the transfer of dangerous technology and deadly weapons. We will continue to be a force for security in Asia, maintaining our military presence and our strong alliances. We will continue to support, from the outside, those who struggle within China for human rights and religious freedom.
I want to say a special word of thanks to Congressman Levin and Bereuter. Because of them, we will have both normal trade relations and a good new policy took to monitor our human rights concern. They made this better bill, and all Americans are in their debt. Thank you.
There are so many Members here today, I can’t introduce them all, but some who had no institutional mandate to do so also joined us in fighting hard for this bill. Among them, Senator Baucus, Congressman Matsui, Congressman Dooley, Congressman Dreier, Congressman Kolbe, and Congressman Crane. I, in particular, thank those of you who worked so closely with me in this regard, and all the rest of you who fought hard for this.
Let me say, in case you’ve all forgotten, this thing was hard to pass.(Laughter) This was a lot of trouble. And I would just like to close in reiterating something that I often said in these endless meeting we had in that room right up there on the third floor where, ironically, President Franklin Roosevelt had his office during World War II.
I do think this a good economic deal for America. I think it will increase our exports, and over the long run, will strengthen our economic position in the world. But I think, by far, the most important reason to ratify this agreement is the potential it gives us to build a safer, more integrated world.
You heard Senator Moynihan talking about the day he joined the Navy. In the last 60 years of the 20th century, we fought three major wars in Asia. We can build a whole different future there now. We concluded a trade agreement with Vietnam. Today a very high official from North Korea came into the Oval Office to bring a message from the leader of North Korea. But nothing-nothing- can enhance the prospects of peace and the prospects of a very different 21st century like having china take the right path into the future....

Entire transcript …Quote from Clinton Speech signing the China Trade Act
Like all people in the United States, the Chinese people ultimately will have to pick their own path. And they will make their own decisions. We can’t control what they do, but we can control what we do.
We overcame fears, misgivings, honest disagreements, to come together in a stunning bipartisan coalition. One Republican House Member shook hands with me today, and the first thing he said is,“Well,” he said,“I’m glad to see you, Mr. President. This is the first time I’ve ever come here since you’ve been here.”(Laughter) And I thought,“Well, if there had to be just one time, this is the time,” because we did something together here that gives our children and our grandchildren the chance to live in a world that is coming together, not coming apart. It gives all of us the chance to meet the common threats of the future together as free and independent people.
Our children will live in a world in which the information technology revolution, the biotechnology revolution, and the increasing globalization of the economy will force them to find ways to meet our common challenges and seize our common opportunities together. It’s hard to imagine how that future will work if China is not part of it.
So to every on of you, from every part of America, those in congress and those who lobbied the Congress, I hope for a long time to come you will remember this day and be proud of what you did to bring it about. And I hope and believe that our children and grandchildren will be the beneficiaries of your labors.
Thank you and God bless you.
NOTE: The President spoke at 4:52 p.m. on the South Lawn at the White House. In his remarks, the President referred to former Secretary of Commerce William M. Daley; and National Defense Commission First Vice Chairman Cho Myong-nok and President Kim Chong-il of North Korea. The transcript released by the Office of the Press Secretary also included the remarks of Secretary of state Madeleine Albright, Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert, Senator William V. Roth, Jr., Representative Bill Archer, Senator Daniel Patrick Moyniham, and Representative Charles B. Rangel. H.R. 4444, approved October 10, was assigned Public Law
Bacon Hater I’m NOT here to Win anything what’s the point. The truth and facts needs to be told…I’ve sat down with a U.S. Congressman 3 times and the President of the Senate Bitching about the Recession which was obviously caused by Clinton signing the China Trade act which Lowered the US Tariffs on Chinas imports, now U S wage cant compete. Factories had 2 choices. shut there doors Or try and get some of their products made over seas. That was a Temp slowdown but eventually China STOLE our Patents not to mention China's Militarily has broken into our US Corps http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tariffs_in_Unite...
The main goal of the tariff was uncontroversial—to raise money to pay the federal budget. Tariffs were the largest (approaching 95% at times) source of federal revenue until the Federal income tax began after 1913. For well over a century the federal government was largely financed by tariffs averaging about 20% on foreign imports . The goal of using higher tariffs to promote industrialization was urged by the first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, and after him the Whig Party. They generally failed because Jeffersonian andJacksonian Democrats said the tariff should be only high enough to pay the government's bills; otherwise it would hurt the consumers. The Republicans, however, made high tariffs the centerpiece of their economic policy beginning in 1861, and as late as 1930. Since 1930 tariffs have not been a major political issue..
