As a registered Democrat, I am praying for a credible presidential candidate to emerge from the younger tier of politicians in their late 40s.

It remains baffling how anyone would think that Hillary Clinton (born the same year as me) is our party’s best chance. She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband? She’s certainly busy, busy and ever on the move — with the tunnel-vision workaholism of someone trying to blot out uncomfortable private thoughts.

I for one think it was a very big deal that our ambassador was murdered in Benghazi. In saying “I take responsibility” for it as secretary of state, Hillary should have resigned immediately. The weak response by the Obama administration to that tragedy has given a huge opening to Republicans in the next presidential election. The impression has been amply given that Benghazi was treated as a public relations matter to massage rather than as the major and outrageous attack on the U.S. that it was.

Throughout history, ambassadors have always been symbolic incarnations of the sovereignty of their nations and the dignity of their leaders. It’s even a key motif in “King Lear.” As far as I’m concerned, Hillary disqualified herself for the presidency in that fist-pounding moment at a congressional hearing when she said,“What difference does it make..."

A 91% TAX RATE??? ROFLMAO! That's a Lie that even Paul Ryan wouldn't dare tell! But, Fox Fake News probably did! LMAO!
A Business Owner that is so incompetent that they don't even know what Tax Rate they're paying...riiight, I believe that! Well it's an Ignorant Tea bagger, it's very possible, because they don't know enough to take a drink of water, without Fox Fake News telling them to swallow!
Your buddy OT brought it up.... "The USA once had a tax rate of 91%....and the unemployment rate was lower than it is now.... the rich were still rich and big business was still ...well big business. So much for the lower tax argument. "

Suck on that for a while... Sas

Liberal is what you are: hardly name calling. Freaking (FR) is the way I feel about people like you. NO you stature does not rise to serious name calling. In my opinion, because you don't really care about the people but use it as a front to advance your agenda (socialism), I consider you and the other liberals about as low as you can get and still be human.
As for Republican platform, it is about the same as the liberals. It looks like we are going to have to have another.... party full of conservatives and not the Rhino-liberals the Repub. party has Now. In fact, we in TN need to get rid of our two senators who are as liberal as you can get.
Don't cry over being call a Fr... Liberal,,,,, its just what you are.... you can't help it.......
Ya know Honestly I have never seen this Country so divided and hateful.
Take yesterday, President Obama gave the Miami Dolphins 72' team their credit for winning the Super Bowl(only undefeated season ever), because back then Watergate was going on and President Nixon didn't have the time to do it. I did not know a thing about Watergate until I arrived home.
Now three of the team members did not show up at the White House because of political issues with President Obama. I do remember that final game in mid Jan. as I was in Nam' and a "short-timer" with my short-timer calendar. The sun was just starting to come up in that Godforsaken land and I had my lil hand held radio tuned into that game, I could barely hear it but it was all I had.
Now I was not a friend of President Nixon, but if he were to invite me to the White House even when I could not stand the guy, he was after all my President and I would of gone.
Hell even Coach Don Shula went and he is now in a wheelchair. Bob Griese was standing right next to President Obama.

In 2013, federal spending approached $3.5 trillion. Now that’s hard to wrap your brain around. It’s about $27,700 for every American household.

All across America, families balance their budgets, rein in spending, and pay down their debts. If Americans can do it, why can’t the federal government?

Here you go, the federal government wasting taxpayer dollars:

The TSA let 5,700 pieces of unused security equipment worth $184 million sit in storage in a Dallas, Texas, warehouse, which costs $3.5 million annually to lease and manage. Taxpayers lost another $23 million in depreciation costs, because most of the 472 carry-on baggage screening machines had been housed there for nine months or more

The National Science Foundation used part of a half-million dollar grant to develop a video game that simulates a high school prom

The U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research spent $300,000 on a study that concluded the first bird on Earth probably had black feathers.

Taxpayer-funded Amtrak recovered only 44 cents of every dollar of its food and beverage costs on long-distance routes, which already annually lose money

The Office of Naval Research spent $450,000 on a study that determined unintelligent robots do not have the ability to maintain a baby’s attention.

$376 million will go to an Oval Office renovation and plans to construct a second office for the President to use during the renovation.

The Internal Revenue Service spent $4.1 million on a lavish conference in 2010 for 2,609 of its employees in Anaheim, California

In 2010, 117,000 people who double-dipped into Social Security’s disability insurance program and the federal unemployment insurance program received $850 million in cash benefits.

In 2012, the U.S. Department of Agriculture spent $300,000 on activities promoting caviar produced in Idaho.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded a $149,992 grant to researchers at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey who are trying to eliminate the infamous “freshman 15” by studying college students’ on-campus dining selections.

A $100,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Arts funded a video game that depicts a female superhero sent to save planet Earth from climate changes allegedly caused by social issues that affect women.

The Department of Health and Human Services failed to report $800 billion in spending on time. So much for “government transparency.”

1,000 prisoners in Pennsylvania collected weekly unemployment benefits over a four-month period, costing taxpayers $7 million.

There is a lot of people that have two or three jobs to make ends meet. Thanks to you socialist Liberal's Obama Care. There will be more before it is over. It is just getting started.
Honestly if you really do believe what you just said, why not sit back and let Obama Care crash and burn.......then you can rub President Obama's nose and as you call us "socialist Liberals" noses in the mud all day. Take the next election or two.

But, I betcha that on Sunday Morning, he/she plays the part really well in front of the other Church-goers for a couple of hours...and then, has to come home and take a nap from the sheer exertion of it!
And he/she had the nerve to call us Liberals/Democrats,"Hypoc rites"! It's the TEA Bagger way, accuse Others of the very thing you, yourself, are doing or of being what you know yourself to be! It's a diversionary tactic, made famous by the Republicans, and the TEA Baggers have perfected it to a Fine Art Form!

Update on those 1,000 prisoners;
Republican Gov. Tom Corbett said his administration is correcting the problem.

If you don't see anything wrong with him calling an innocent, dead Person a Pedophile, then you're as sick and demented as he is and you both need your Azzes kicked up into your disgusting throats!
You People are past EVIL, you're the Pure Devil himself, walking around amongst us! I actually wonder why somebody hasn't put an end to your awful lives before now!
Don't even talk to me, I want nothing to do with People like you and that vile, filthy Basta*d!
You have a lot of room to talk since you asked a grieving mother if she was the drunk driver that killed her own child. Then you said she was not the mother at all and that the child never existed and the accident never happened. You have since called her, as well as most of the posters here, every name in the book, including pedophile.

So you deny that you had sex with your ex when you were 16?

I support Haslam and Harrison Elementary

Your vote makes a big difference to our school.
Visit GiveWith.Target.com to vote for our school.
This year, Target will give money to schools all over the country for one simple act: a vote. Our school needs just 25 votes to earn a $25 donation from Target. But that's only the beginning. For each additional vote, our school will get $1 more. So please remember that, although the gesture is small, the rewards are potentially huge. Go to GiveWith.Target.com to vote for Harrison Elementary School once a week through September 21 or until Target has given away all $5 million. And please forward this email to your friends. Vote and see rules at GiveWith.Target.com .
