James Dobson Throws Jesus Under the Bus as He Attacks his Critics
Rather than turning the other cheek, as Jesus commanded (Matthew 5:39; Luke 6:29), RWW notes that Dobson took to his June newsletter to express his disapproval, railing once more that President Obama is the “anti-religious freedom president” as well as a bevy of other oft-repeated lies.
...another dime-a-dozen bible-thumping profiteer.

It should be clear where Obama's sympathy is .
He went to extremes to free this traitor, but won't lift a finger for the release of a real hero being held and beaten in a Mexican prison. He says we "can't get involved " while all the time he had been working on the release of a real traitor .
Makes me sick.

You have zero proof he is a traitor, there is no factual evidence he left his post purposefully.
But it's nice to see how quickly you turn coat and hate the troops with even the slightest prompting by Sarah Palin!!!!!
Sure, leave the US SOLDIER CAPTIVE WITH THE ENEMY ON THE BATTLEFIELD!!!
Hate the troops much loser!?!?!??

Good luck putting the "open carry" genie back in the bottle
Gosh, even 41% Republicans would rather not sit with their kids and eat their burger and fries with some yahoo wandering around the place with an AR-15 casually strapped to their chests. I wonder why?
According to the poll, 55 percent of Americans prefer that retailers and restauranteurs don't allow guns, while only 32 percent prefer that they do. The poll found a partisan divide, with a no-gun policy preferred by Democrats 72 percent to 19 percent, and by independents 48 percent to 34 percent. Republicans said they preferred establishments that allow guns 50 percent to 41 percent.
It looks like the NRA is getting the message that their lunatics are on the verge of ruining everything:
In a remarkably frank statement issued on Friday, the National Rifle Association said that gun activists in Texas had "crossed the line from enthusiasm to downright foolishness" with their demonstrations at fast food restaurants.
"As a result of these hijinx, two popular fast food outlets have recently requested patrons to keep guns off the premises," the unsigned statement said. "To state the obvious, that's counterproductive for the gun owning community."
In denouncing the demonstrations, the NRA said that using guns "to draw attention to yourself in public not only defies common sense, it shows a lack of consideration and manners."
"[W]hile unlicensed open carry of long guns is also typically legal in most places, it is a rare sight to see someone sidle up next to you in line for lunch with a 7.62 rifle slung across his chest, much less a whole gaggle of folks descending on the same public venue with similar arms," the statement said. "Let's not mince words, not only is it rare, it's downright weird and certainly not a practical way to go normally about your business while being prepared to defend yourself. To those who are not acquainted with the dubious practice of using public displays of firearms as a means to draw attention to oneself or one's cause, it can be downright scary. It makes folks who might normally be perfectly open-minded about firearms feel uncomfortable and question the motives of pro-gun advocates."
The NRA made clear it "does not support bans on personalized guns or on carrying firearms in public, including in restaurants. " But it concluded that "when people act without thinking, or without consideration for others – especially when it comes to firearms – they set the stage for further restrictions on our rights."
I'm sorry, these opportunists created this monster and now they're going to have to deal with it. The have demeaned anyone who calls for common sense with guns up until now, even including the relatives of gun violence victims, like those who lost 6 year olds at Newtown. They have proclaimed to anyone who would listen that there is an "unfettered" right to bear arms whenever and where ever you want. Where in their approach has ever "consideration for others" been a part of their message?
They have managed to create an entire movement of people who think they are not only empowered to carry guns whenever and wherever they want, they are empowered to use them. Some of them even believe they are there as adjuncts to the police departments, as if anyone in their right minds want these bozos to "protect" them.
In response to the NRA's statement on Friday criticizing Texas activists' recent tactics, members of the pro-gun group Open Carry Texas have been cutting up their NRA membership cards, and the group has issued a statement demanding a retraction of the NRA's "disgusting and disrespectful comments." Or else.
"The more the NRA continues to divide its members by attacking some aspects of gun rights instead of supporting all gun rights, the more support it will lose," Open Carry Texas said in a statement published Monday on its Facebook page.
Now you own another Monster you created!!

Your Hero did it in spades!!!
In the 1980s radical Shiites in Lebanon took American hostages. In order to free them, the Reagan administration not only negotiated with Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini but actually stole T.O.W. anti-aircraft munitions from Pentagon warehouses and shipped them to Tehran, receiving the money for them in black bank accounts and sending it to right wing death squads in Nicaragua. Khomeini and his government were listed as terrorists by the State Department at the time, and selling weapons to Iran was highly illegal. Not only that, but the US was allied with Iraq at the time, so Reagan screwed over Baghdad this way. Reagan did it, in part to free US hostages in Lebanon (Iran put pressure on its clients for their release).
As for encouraging groups to take US hostages, if the GOP really is so worried about this outcome they should stop putting the idea in the minds of terrorists by trumpeting it all over the news media. There was no rash of hostage-taking of Americans after Reagan bribed Iran to have them released, so the expectation is ahistorical.
After Congress explicitly outlawed it!!!

Prove it loser, show one Government report that concludes he is a traitor.
#165774 Jun 3, 2014
Show me your government document where Obama tried to get the solider that's in a Mexican prison free . I'm not the CIA. I don't have access to classified documents either.. Do you really think the government is going to leave stuff like that laying around where anyone could get their hands on them? Berrgdawg sent an e-mail to his parents saying that he was ashamed to be an American. His father told him to follow his conscience.
Bergdawg , packed his belongings and left instructions for his Commanding Officer to send his personal stuff to father. He then took his cell phone and left.
He left, he got caught, and was taken prisoner
When it was discovered he was missing, a search and rescue team was sent out to look for him. Six of those men died trying to save him.
I wouldn't be surprised if he adopted Islam and has come back here to do harm in some way to us.

I asked for proof of one thing, you cannot provide that. The rest is basically telling me why you think that, the reality, you think that, you cannot prove that.
So you can say, "might be", you can say "could be", you can say "you think" and all that would be fair.
And there's a difference between a traitor and a deserter.
You cannot say "he is a tratitor" such as RayLoser and you have said.
#165778 Jun 3, 2014
bergdahl, bergermiester, benghazi, doesn't matter. You're talking about any of them for one reason and one reason only, you desire to blame and degrade the President, that's the only reason any of you even know how to spell any name from any other country or person.
For instance, can you spell osama bin laden? Yes but do you ever? No, why?
Cause you cannot use that to bash the President, that's why!!!!

1+1=3 in Kentucky
Randy+Mitch=3 idiots cause you have to factor in the Teabrains acceptance of the math!
"Don't ever let it be said that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul isn't willing to play the game, because here he is obediently parroting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's absurd claim that Kynect, Kentucky's new health insurance marketplace, has nothing to do with repealing Obamacare:
Saying he favors a full repeal of "Obamacare" but citing a "technical question," U.S. Sen. Rand Paul on Friday gave cover to U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a week after McConnell said Kynect and the federal law are not connected.
Paul, talking to reporters after speaking at an event in Frankfort, said he wasn't sure whether Kynect, Kentucky's implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law, should be dismantled, saying there were far bigger questions that make a simple answer impossible.[...] Like McConnell last week, Paul expressed a desire to turn back the clock and address health care in a different way, but when asked if the state exchange, subsidized under the federal law, should be dismantled, Paul said, "You know I'm not sure," suggesting a great deal of complexity to how "we unravel or how we change things."
So after spending the past five years saying Obamacare is one of the greatest evils in American history, now Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell are on the fence about whether Kentucky should continue with it, but they are sure that Obamacare should still be repealed?
Obviously, that doesn't make any sense. They are saying 1+1=3. And the reason is equally obvious: They don't want to deal with the political ramifications of coming out for repealing Kynect because it delivers insurance to 1 in 10 Kentuckians."
Word Salads baby, an election of word salads and bad math.
What else is new, "young gun" Paul Ryan's budget hasn't balanced any year he's put it out! But you all still think it's great!

Republican hypocrits show their true colors...
"While this fight plays out, another one is beginning. The Open Carry crowd demands they be allowed to attend the Texas Republican Party Convention with their life partners, by which I mean their guns—but they won't get to, because Republicans are tremendous hypocrites:
Republican Party of Texas Chairman Steve Munisteri clarified that open-carry demonstrators would not be able to bring their weapons inside the convention center during his party's state convention later this week. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Anna Tinsley reported that Munisteri issued a statement saying that “anyone carrying an openly exposed weapon will be asked to do so outside of the building.”
Tinsley added that some open-carry supporters still intend to try to bring black powder guns inside, claiming that they are not considered firearms under Texas law.
Apparently the Republican Party does not feel that a bunch of yahoos of unknown mental status wandering around their own convention with loaded AR-15s would make anything safer, even though we're all supposed to feel very safe and protected when the same yahoos do it in a public restaurant or home improvement store. Well, at least they probably can't shoot their own foot off with a musket. Probably."
Gee, we're all supposed to feel safer with all these guns and yahoos around, why TF aren't Republicans all safe and comfy with those same unkown mental status yahoo's running around AT THEIR CONVENTION?!!??!!??!
Answer: They don't stand with you, they use you! Both Republicans and the NRA do nothing but use you!

Ruh Roh Reorge...
"What the Republican base wants will screw the Republican Party, climate change edition:
A new Public Policy Polling survey finds that the carbon emission reduction standards announced by President Obama yesterday are popular with voters across the country, and that voters have little tolerance for a presidential candidate in 2016 who doesn’t believe that climate change is caused by human activity.
Given that the Republican candidate in 2016 will be required to deny exactly that, this does tend to simplify things.
Specifically, PPP found that voters strongly support the Obama emission standards (53 percent support, 35 percent oppose) and only 38 percent of voters said they'd be willing to vote for a presidential candidate who denied the link between human activity and climate change. Independents are even stronger believers, with only 29 percent willing to support a denier.
So there you go, future Republican candidates. Can't wait to see the general election efforts to dress up that pig."
#165782 Jun 3, 2014
No, the thing that is always missing from your replies is an actual reply to the point made!!!!!
Here's your chance to show how much you care about Veterans...
"Here's a great encapsulation of our broken government:
Hundreds of veterans with traumatic brain injuries will get kicked out of assisted living facilities this fall unless policymakers in Washington soon extend an expiring pilot program.[...]
The VA has notified Congress that a pilot program for injured veterans will expire at the end of September without congressional action.
A Senate bill that included language to extend the program stalled on the floor earlier this year because of a fight over how to pay for it.
The House Veterans’ Affairs panel plans to hold a hearing on two measures to reauthorize the popular program, but time on the legislative calendar is running out.
The program costs between $100 million and $200 million, and the alternatives are more expensive in the long term and less effective for the veterans. Republicans and Democrats both want to pass it. But Republicans already filibustered a veterans' healthcare bill in February,
and now this small piece is being held up by, y'know, cost concerns.
Can we just get reporters to admit that any time they're writing that something stalled "because of a fight over how to pay for it," what they're really saying is that Republicans are starving the government of revenue it needs to pay for even programs they claim to support?
Because, really. Just do it! Close one corporate tax loophole and fund it for a century ... except Republicans won't do that, so we have these endless, mysterious, "fights over how to pay for" every damn thing.
But, you don't care, like everything else, you say you do, but your actions do not support that claim.!
