THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! But in fact if it weren’t for GOP homophobes fear pundits, Fox lies and propaganda, disenfranchising minority and the poor, religious and women bigotry, race-baiting, fraud-based claims, disingenuous racist hoax, plus gerrymandering to support their "white only" southern strategy - they wouldn't garner enough votes to be called a Republican party.

Two seventh-grade students in Virginia Beach, Va., were handed long-term suspensions Tuesday that will last until the end of the school year for playing with an airsoft gun in one of their front yards while waiting for the school bus.
WAVY-TV reports that 13-year-old Khalid Caraballo and Aidan Clark will face an additional hearing in January to determine if they will be expelled for "possession, handling and use of a firearm" because the guns were fired at two others playing in Caraballo's yard.
A neighbor saw Khalid shooting the airsoft gun in his yard and called 911, telling the dispatcher, "He is pointing the gun, and it looks like there's a target in a tree in his front yard," the station reported.
Khalid claims he never took the toy gun to the designated bus stop or Larkspur Middle School, according to the report. Two other students who fired guns were also suspended.
In a letter obtained by WAVY.com , school principal Matthew Delaney found that the "children were firing pellet guns at each other, and at people near the bus stop." Delaney states in the letter that one child "was only 10 feet from the bus stop, and ran from the shots being fired, but was still hit."
The school's so-called "zero-tolerance" policy on guns extends to private property, according to the report.
Khalid's mother, Solangel Caraballo, said it's ridiculous that her son and his friends were suspended because they were firing the airsoft gun on private property.
"My son is my private property. He does not become the school's property until he goes to the bus stop, gets on the bus, and goes to school," Caraballo told the station.
Khalid told WAVY-TV he thinks the punishment is unfair and may hurt his chances of getting into a good college after graduating from high school.
"It's on your school record. The school said I had possession of a firearm. They aren't going to ask me any questions. They are going to think it was a real gun, and I was trying to hurt someone," he said.

Who wants to bet which party thease ignorant school employees belong to? This is stupidity at it's very finest!

There have been some good Democrats in the past.
They let 'libTARDED' principles get in their way.
They are on their way to becoming 'extinct'...
Just like the do do bird.
This Country is A *Constitutional Republic*...
NOT a "Democracy" ...
Looks like it's going to have to be SHOWN ...
There is NO diplomacy left.
They are trying to make it a 'one-way' street.
Talking does not get it.
We've banged our heads ENOUGH ...

That's exactly what the Repubs said about Medicare when it started. What is the Repub healthcare plan for America? They don't want ObamaCare and they tried to get rid of Medicare. Exactly what is the plan for those that can't pay for a $100K dollar heart attack or a $200K dollar cancer out of their pocket?

Tea Party Republican,
WOW! Congratulations! You are the most paranoid lunatic to ever appear on these pages. That is the craziest theory I have ever heard. Start storing your water and digging a shelter in your back yard, we'll come get you when it's over, lmao.

I post an accredited news report, and you think it is my theory? Then the 'idiots in hideing' judge you brilliant? How stupid are you? I know how stupid they are!
#124688 Sep 24, 2013
By the way halfwit, one person developing a theory requires them to first form a hypothesis, then try to disprove said hypothesis via scientific testing methods using dependent and independent variables; and if unsuccessful, compare it to many other tested hypothesis’s, then, and only then can a ‘theory’ be formed; of course you do not have the intelligence to understand that! You just used a word, that you didn’t know the meaning of, i.e. You are stupid!

You are pretty much spot on with the meaning of a scientific theory, but in this context it would be a political theory, which has a much broader scope.
#124691 Sep 24, 2013
...it's a crazy theory because you say so? Well, aren't you smarter than the average democrat slug? lmao Moving on...do you have anything credible to add to the discussion or are you just another ass clown looking for attention? Maybe uncle flabby scooters latest personality released from within his dark place? LMMFAO

A theory is never an opinion of one person, it is the most commonly misused word of people with little education, except for pacific instead of 'specific' perhaps. Let's leave this be now.

Obama gets stood up by Iran’s theocrats
Iran’s new president spurned a meeting with President Barack Obama Sept. 24, despite repeated invites from Obama’s staff.
“What we indicated is, again, what we’ve been saying publicly, which is we’re open to the two leaders having an encounter here at UNGA, not a formal meeting,” a White House officials told reporters at the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York, on Sept. 24
“We had discussions at a working level with them and ultimately it became clear that that was too complicated for them at this time,” the official admitted.
Obama had hoped to meet Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s new president. He was elected to the post after being nominated by the top layer of Iran’s theocratic government, the Guardian Council.
However, the Iranians have long frustrated U.S. pressure against its nuclear weapons program, and is successfully working with Russia to frustrate Obama’s effort to depose Syria’s dictatorial government.

Why would Iran want to meet with a president 'that is on the ropes'.
Neither Iran or Brazil has anything good to say about Obama.
Brazil cancelled a state dinner, something unheard of.
Does this tell anyone beside Obama that he is not just a "lame duck president" but rather "a dead duck president".
The glory he soaked up early in his presidency has turned to ridicule and jokes. He was found weighed, measured and found wanting. I think that happened once before - with the Assyrians.
I'm "getting a point ACROSS" ...

NOW, I 'will' say something.

Once again you are referring to "Theory" in the scientific sense.
I would imagine Einstein, Planck, and Newton would all take exception to your statement.
I refer you to the second definition:
2: abstract thought : speculation
6 b: an unproved assumption : conjecture
I am educated enough to know words can have different meanings depending on context.

Hillary Clinton warns GOP that shutdown ‘wouldn’t be the worst thing for Democrats’
NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton warned congressional Republicans on Tuesday that there would be consequences if they pursue a government shutdown to circumvent President Barack Obama’s health care law, saying it “wouldn’t be the worst thing for Democrats.”
Clinton said Obama’s sweeping health care law was “a very important step forward” to provide affordable coverage and reduce the cost of health care across the nation. Recalling her husband’s first term in the White House, the former first lady suggested that congressional Republicans faced blame after the government shutdowns that marked the political fights of the mid-1990s and could face a similar judgment from voters.
“I think they ought to go back and read history.
Because I will just say that it wouldn’t be the worst thing for Democrats if they try to shut the government down,” Mrs. Clinton said during a panel at the Clinton Global Initiative.“We’ve seen that movie before.”
The former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate spoke shortly before Obama joined with former President Bill Clinton here to discuss the implementation of the health care law. The annual meeting brings together political, business and philanthropic leaders from around the globe during the start of the United Nations General Assembly.
Since departing the State Department in February, Clinton has largely avoided partisan politics in her speeches but offered pointed criticism here of the budget battle in Congress and efforts to increase the nation’s debt ceiling enough to cover the government’s bills.
“This president is not going to agree to defund health care. We’re on the path to beginning the implementation. If they want to shut the government down, that’s on their head and they’re responsibility,” she said.“And if they go even further, which is deeply distressing, and for the first time lead our country into a default on our obligations, that is not just partisan politics that is going at the heart of our credibility around the world.”
Clinton said a default on the nation’s debt would lead to “some unnecessary self-inflicted wounds that this country does not deserve. We deserve better from our political leadership no matter what party they’re in.”
Yeah, repeat history CONS, see how it bites you in the end. Obamacare will still be LAW and it will still be FUNDED. BIG CORPS don't win this one.
RIP GOP CONS

Mitch McConnell blames Obama for loss of coal jobs, even though the company shedding workers cites other factors
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, right, chats with Kentucky coalfield attorney John R. Triplett in Pikeville, Ky. on April 29. Credit: Courier-Journal files/AP Photo/Roger Alford.
U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, who faces a seemingly tight re-election bid, has weighed in on the James River Coal new announcement that it was laying off more than 500 miners in Eastern Kentucky.
The Senate Minority Leader put the blame square on what he called President Obama’s “war on coal.”
That, however, contrasts with the James Rivers published explanation, and as a publicly traded company, James Rivers needs to be accurate in the economic information it gives out. The company said the layoffs were “due to continued weakness in the domestic and international coal markets.”
There was no blame placed on environmental regulations.
To be sure, one could argue that a least some of that market weakness could be a result of some utilities converting some of their aging power plant from coal to natural gas, to meet tighter emission controls. But let’s not forget that natural gas prices have fallen dramatically, with new drilling techniques, making it cheaper to burn than coal, and there are other factors, too.
The Herald-Leader in Lexington has characterized the job losses this way:
The coal industry in Eastern Kentucky faces a number of challenges, including competition from relatively cheap natural gas and lower-cost coal from other parts of the country; higher mining costs and declining productivity, which reflect the fact that much of the best coal has already been mined; and tougher rules aimed at protecting air and water quality.
In any event, here’s the senator’s full statement:
Last night, President Obama said that his Administration’s proposals are helping strengthen the economy, but try and tell that to the people of eastern Kentucky. People in coal country awoke to more devastating news related to the President’s War on Coal. Over 500 Kentuckians are now wondering how they’re going to feed their family and pay their bills, as a result of another shut down at Kentucky coal mines. The President is leading a war on coal and what that really means for Kentucky families is a war on jobs. I will continue to fight to defend our coal miners and in the days to come continue my efforts in Washington to help put a stop to Obama’s War on Coal.
What a crock.
