He was one of the three Witnesses, yesterday, and I watched him testify. He wants more Security at the Embassies. Let's see if he gets it, if the TEApublican-controlled House won't fund it! That's the reason Benghazi didn't have it when the Attacks occurred...this insane obsession that the TEApublicans have with just cutting expenses...no matter what it means or who it endangers! The Sequester just cut even more security for the Embassies!
They'll protect the Wealthy from having to pay their fair share of taxes, even if it means Navy SEALs will die! That's basically what it all boils down to, and did boil down to, at Benghazi!
Speaking of Navy SEALs dying...

NAVY SEAL TEAM VI FAMILIES TO REVEAL GOVERNMENT’S CULPABILITY IN DEATH OF THEIR SONS IN FATAL HELICOPTER CRASH IN AFGHANISTAN FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL RAID ON BIN LADEN’S COMPOUND(Washington, D.C.). Three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, will appear at a press conference on May 9, 2013, to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, just a few months after the successful raid on the compound of Osama Bin Laden that resulted in the master terrorist's death.

Accompanying the families of these dead Navy SEAL Team VI special operations servicemen will be retired military experts verifying their accounts of how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.

The areas of inquiry at the press conference will include but not be limited to:

1. How President Obama and Vice President Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team VI carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.
2. How and why high-level military officials sent these Navy SEAL Team VI heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support.
3. How and why middle-level military brass carries out too many ill-prepared missions to boost their standing with top-level military brass and the Commander-in-Chief in order that they can be promoted.
4. How the military restricts special operations servicemen and others from engaging in timely return fire when fired upon by the Taliban and other terrorist groups and interests, thus jeopardizing the servicemen’s lives.
5. How and why the denial of requested pre-assault fire may have contributed to the shoot down of the Navy SEAL Team VI helicopter and the death of these special operations servicemen.
6. How Afghani forces accompanying the Navy SEAL Team VI servicemen on the helicopter were not properly vetted and how they possibly disclosed classified information to the Taliban about the mission, resulting in the shoot down of the helicopter.
7. How military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes who disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” will be shown with a certified translation.

"This press conference takes on special significance given that our government has over the last twelve years since September 11th committed brave American servicemen to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that, in large part as a result of politics, were poorly conceived of and implemented, resulting in the deaths of thousands and the maiming of tens of thousands of our brave heroes. To make matters even worse, America has effectively lost these wars," stated Larry Klayman, legal counsel for the families.

<quoted text>I find it odd that with all of your cultural diversity, and visiting so many countries that you and your friend from Chic-fil-A were so much against gay's. You even said your friend would never cave to this issue. So this is just one of your friends......interesting.
So much from learning about culture from foreign countries, unless you stayed in the tourist areas and big cities and never traveled to places that are not on the map, that my friend is where you will find cultural diversity. That is also where you will find that the single most important language is English.
Clubs(golf) is just not my thing, as I find the clubs cliquish and golf to mind-numbing.
Not that was very nice that OT invited you to go fishing. If I were to invite you to go fishing you would not last a day. You see when I go, it's far offshore, out of sight of land and the only thing you would be good for is chuming up the Dolphin(Mahi-Mahi) as you puke over the side. Then as you turn a lighter shade of gray we would head toward shore and scuba dive with spearguns to shoot our dinner. But I know with your Club experience you would not last the day.
My experience with other cultures.......well sometimes even here on topix when someone mentions a place I have been to, I will add my own personal touch.
Your knowledge of terrorist oganizations is so one sighted you can't see the forest for the trees.
With all due...nevermind. You're confusing "one sightedness" with simply being smart enough to know who the hell the enemy is!

One would think that the same liberals who raised cane about the lack of up-armored humvees would do the same heck raising about that...well, oops - Bush isn't president so not only is there nobody to blame...there wasn't a problem to begin with. Move along folks, nothing to see here...

<quoted text>
Thank you for wishing me well Olivia, and I wish you good fortunes. However, the poll I posted was a nationwide poll. That is a pretty big swatch. My best interests lie in an administration that promotes and supports small business. That nationwide poll indicated that not only me, but a lot of other Americans see that our current administration isn't doing that, by a large margin. And this poll was political party neutral. Being duped means being fooled. Right now, more and more people aren't being fooled, including me. Please pardon me if I don't lend a lot of credibility to your views on what helps our country's small businesses.
Hi "Pete". I wrote you a long post regarding that poll, and the Topix gremlins snatched it...and I don't have time to rewrite it now, but basicially it boiled down to the fact that I'm a Democrat and you are a Republican, and based on the wording of those poll questions, I was with the majority on five of the six questions and the one where I was in the minority was the one that the public was most evenly divided on. We MAY have different REASONS for being in the majority opinion, but none the less...
I will tell you "Pete", NOBODY in Washington promotes and supports small business. You and I can't buy a few congressmen or a senator or two, so they pay us lip service and enact policies that favor BIG business. The same thing is happening in state government. I am dealing with what I thought was a simple issue regarding the State of Tennessee......and I am finding out that there are no simple issues anymore. My State Rep and Senator know me well when they want my vote and influence......but they have no problem voting in laws that adversely affect my business once they get it.
BIG business has our elected officials in their pockets and you and I get the crumbs left behind once the parade has gone by. Face it "Pete" neither party is REALLY for small business anymore.

Morning, OT. I think Pete has left for work. I couldn't agree with you more. This administration is anti small business and choking them with endless regulations. That's what my son tells me too and he is really smart.
I don't believe OT was speaking specifically about "this administration." He implied that both parties are anti-small business. You implied that it is just the Dems.

Well...I tried to watch the Benghazi Hearings twice today and fell asleep both times. Slept about an hour each time. So, I'll have to watch another Replay of it, because I want to hear it ALL, every word.
Not long ago, toward the end, one of the Committee Members said that somebody called his Office to ask him , "where was the Smoking Gun"? He said there wasn't even a "Pea Shooter", much less a Smoking Gun.
It's so obvious that the TEApublicans are just taking this opportunity to promote themselves, and to try to promote their Party...it didn't work...either One. Actually, it just made them look like they were just wasting time and they realized it , too...because they started saying over and over that the purpose was , and their duty was to see what they could do, to keep it from happening , again. It was the same answer each time, appropriate the money for a better security system and more Troops...let's see if they do any of it. If they do, they'll have to vote out the Sequester that just cut all of that, even more.
I suspect Issa's tweet was just to try to get the egg off his face, in light of the "no wrongdoing found" conclusion of Today's Hearings.
If it wasn't so tragic, today would actually have been funny. watching the TEApublicans squirming toward the end , was funny!
I hope some of you watched the whole thing or will watch it, especially you TEApublicans. Lol!
Remember, it's your Elected Officials in action...and it was a sad sight, indeed!
I watched most of it last night, and I found it interesting at times. This isn't going to topple the Obama Administration, and I personally couldn't care less WHAT the administration called the attack in the days after it happened. What I want the politicians to get to the bottom of, is how this happened so we can prevent it in the future, AND to see if there was indeed retribution toward the whisleblower Mr Hicks at State. To me getting to the facts regarding these issues are the most important things that can come out the whole excercise.

<quoted text>Exactly right. As I was watching the House hearings live yesterday, I noticed that Fox stayed with the hearings but CNN and MSNBC switched to other less important crap. It's called selective editing and is indicative of the left wing media bias.
The woman who was rescued after being held hostage for 10 years is hardly "less important" than an Obama witch hunt...to most people, anyway. Fox"News" understands the ideological makeup of their viewers and unsurprisingly aired their Republican porn without interruption.

Ariel Castro, Cleveland Kidnapper, Is a Registered Democrat

According to voter registration records, Ariel Castro, the Cleveland kidnapper, is a registered Democrat. He was also the alleged leader among the three Castro brothers, who were arrested this week, and the owner of the house at 2207 Seymour Ave., where the three abducted local women had been kept in captivity for over a decade.

Why is this important? Whenever a crime or a scandal captures national attention, the pattern in the mainstream media is to either identify the culprit as a Republican or hold silence -- in which case we can rest assured that the culprit is a Democrat.

When the identity or the party affiliation is yet unknown, the pattern is to speculate publicly about the possibility of the criminal being a conservative, Christian, white, Republican, and a Tea Party member -- and never that he could be a Hispanic Democrat voter playing bass in a meringue band.

In today's divisive climate, the identity of a perpetrator is always a political issue, especially when a crime is committed by men against women. According to the Daily News, "What the neighbors saw was terrifying and dehumanizing: Naked women on dog leashes, crawling in the dirt. A lady clutching an infant and pounding on a window for help."

If any of the brothers were a Republican, this news would have been trumpeted by the mainstream media as tangible proof of the Republican War on Women -- a narrative invented by Democrat strategists and maintained by the media in a successful effort to defeat Republican candidates in the 2012 election cycle.

However, when a real act of war on women is perpetrated by a Democrat voter in the manner that even the most zealous Democrat strategist couldn't have dreamed up in their worst nightmares --

Yes OA it was a product of that socialist/marxist organization as a free market alternative to Hillarycare and it was picked up and enacted by a Republican socialist /marxist rising star called Mitt Romney in Ma.
I was no fan of this legislation, ESPECIALLY once Obama pulled the rug out from under Democrats by pulling the public option. Still, it is better than nothing, which has become the Republican position since the enactment.

The necessity of a government healthcare system is in my opinion a DIRECT result of the gutting of our manufacturing base and the subsequent flatlineing of American wages and benefits, due to globalization. Few conservatives seem to be able (or willing) to make the simple connection between the two.....

Government run healthcare is a result of 100 years of socialist debauchery. It will not work, there simply isn't enough money to take from those who earn a living.

I've never liked outsourcing.I like American products.I found a section at a Houston Walmart that sold American goods, bought some things, even a broom.The broom shows astonishing tenacity, I've really used the hell out of it.My car, a 2010 Cobalt, perks right along, I do keep it maintained.Americans were always good at making things.
