Dem Congresswoman: Only Reason I’d Vote for Syria Attack Is Loyalty to Obama
September 03, 2013
Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said Tuesday that at the current time, the only reason she would vote in favor of an attack on Syria was out of loyalty to Barack Obama.
Appearing on radio's Bill Press Show, the non-voting delegate from the District of Columbia also said if the President actually gets the votes he needs, "it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage"

" Holmes Norton is a non-voting delegate from the District of Columbia, not a representative to Congress."

she has less influence than lady gaga.
or another way to look at it is her influence is counted as the small dust upon the balance.

Longshoremen to AFL-CIO, "We Quit" Over Obamacare
September 2, 2013
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), have announced that they are leaving the AFL-CIO, citing irreconcilable differences. The union cited many grievences but focused mainly on Obamacare and accused AFL-CIO president, Richard Trumka of playing along to get along. They are also upset over Trumka's position on immigration reform.
In a strongly worded letter from ILWU President Robert McEllrath, in which he cited a laundry list of objections his union has with the leadership of the AFL-CIO. Foremost is Obamacare, which will force longshoreman to pay a "Cadillac Tax" on their health benefits. McEllrath accused Trumpka of going back on his promise from in 2009, when he said the union would not support a healthcare plan that would lead to more taxes from the members.
McEllrath wrote, "We feel the Federation has done a great disservice to the labor movement and all working people by going along to get along."
"President Obama ran on a platform that he would not tax medical plans and at the 2009 AFL-CIO Convention, you stated that labor would not stand for a tax on our benefits."

Longshoremen Quit AFL-CIO, Cite Obamacare
03 Sep 2013
The 40,000-member International Longshore and Warehouse Union has dropped its ties to the AFL-CIO in a letter that partly blames compromises over Obamacare.
The letter from ILWU president Robert McEllrath to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, dated Aug. 29, sets out a list of the Longshoremen's complaints against the AFL-CIO. The last page of the three-page letter accuses the AFL-CIO of "going along to get along" with the Obama administration on healthcare, immigration reform, and other issues.
"President Obama ran on a platform that he would not tax medical plans and at the 2009 AFL-CIO Convention, you stated that labor would not stand for a tax on our benefits," McEllrath wrote. Instead, the AFL-CIO lobbied affiliates to support the taxing of so-called "Cadillac" plans like the Longshoremen have.
http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/longshoremen...
more right wing garbage.

"The bulk of the letter deals with the Longshoremen's issues with AFL-CIO members crossing Longshoremen picket lines at Northwest grain terminals."

that was the primary complaint.

As Big Labor disowns ObamaCare, will Republicans own it?
09/03/13
While Congress was out on recess this August, the 40,000-member International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) quit the AFL-CIO over the group's acquiescence to President Obama over the perversely named Affordable Care Act (ACA), firing the first shot in the debate over what to do when the law inevitably collapses.
The ILWU’s attack on ObamaCare followed a public letter condemning the law jointly signed by International Brotherhood of Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa; Donald “D.” Taylor, president of UNITE-HERE; and Joseph Hansen, international president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.
The letter from Hoffa, Taylor and Hanson to the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) unequivocally states,“Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”

the main complaint of the longshoremen had nothing to do with the ACA

George W. Bush: Still the worst
A new study ranks Bush near the very bottom in history, due to delusional wars, reckless spending and inflexibility

Wilentz’s Rolling Stone piece, appearing in the spring of 2006, with Bush still in office, posed a question: Was this president the worst ever? The Bush presidency, wrote Wilentz, appeared “headed for colossal historical disgrace,” and there didn’t seem to be anything Bush could do to forestall that fate. He added,“And that may be the best-case scenario. Many historians are now wondering whether Bush, in fact, will be remembered as the very worst president in all of American history.”

Bush Was the Worst President of the Last 50 Years

By Howard R. Gold on April 24, 2013 in Budget & Spending, Economy & Markets, National Security | Comments (4)
On Thursday President Obama and the four living former presidents will travel to Dallas to dedicate the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Southern Methodist University. Everyone will no doubt say kind things about the 43rd president, who left office four years ago.

And a new Washington Post-ABC News poll showed a big improvement in his approval rating, from 33% when he left office to 47% now, while his negative ratings have shrunk from 66% then to 50% now. His approval rating, by the way, is equal to President Obama’s.

Yet I believe historians will view President Bush as the worst president of the last 50 years. This is a tough one for me, as I think President Nixon was a criminal who tried to trash the Constitution. But Nixon had some real accomplishments (the opening to China, the creation of the EPA), as opposed to President Bush, who barely had any.

So bombing and killing thousands is far less worse than gassing and killing thousands. Once you gas and kill that's the final straw or line in the sand.

America, just let them fight it out as they have done for thousands of years and we will deal with the winner. You libs love population controls anyway so here is your chance to stand up and say nothing. Just let human nature run its course and there will be far fewer people wasting oxygen.

I believe you are still on your knees waiting for that last drop of BO love and will continue to defend him without shame.

No one's going to "go bombing and killing." We'll take out his air force and runways from stand-off range, along with known missile and gun batteries. Some Syrian military may die. There isn't going to be a war. This isn't Bush invading the wrong country and being, war criminal, it's Obama keeping children from being burned to death by sarin and chlorine gas. No war. Not invading. Give Faux News a break. Try a newspaper.

America is embarrassed by dumb racists tea baggers. The whole world is. That's why you're the laughingstocks of the planet and can't win an election. Nobody's embarrassed by the president that saved the economy from Bush's catastrophic presidency and depression, ended illegal wars and civilian deaths, protected women's rights and equality for gays, saved the auto industry and avenged 9/11 by shooting bin Laden in the face.

LOL.

You seem ignorant that ALL sources are biased. A policy, writer or editor somewhere dictates what to publish, what to say, and how to say it.

Whining about 'unbiased sources' and 'right wing garbage' only indicates your frustrated disagreement. Tough. Others have different opinions. Suck it up.

When you can't refute the facts, your only resort is to malign the source.
