Let's ignore this trivia and focus on the Obama scandals.
Sounds good to me. Nothing we can do about the trial anyway.

Did you see the victims of the IRS testify in front of the Congressional panel today?

"I'm a born-free American woman," Becky Gerritson, president of the Wetumpka Tea Party of Alabama, tearfully told the lawmakers. "I'm telling my government,‘You've forgotten your place.'"

They've forgotten their place, indeed.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

This sums up O'bama scandals perfectly--The O'bama is unfit to lead--the only problem is his vice president is also equally unfit and more embarrassing.
Finally someone is standing up for "We the people"
all in one minute! Bravo.
At least we'd be amused the next three years with Biden.

I'd look forward to HIS speeches.

<quoted text>hell I remember when people had values and pride and people were embarrassed to to ask for help yet gratefull for what they were given . Now the libs have made handouts a way of life with few being gratefull for anything,they just reach there hands out demanding more and more as if its owed to them.
I don't mind helping those who need a hand up durring some hard times but as far as the ungrateful parasites who only survive off the labor of others ,let them starve in the street.they deserve nothing.
Cathy Wrench Cashwell claimed she was unable to work due to a 2004 workplace shoulder injury as a postal worker. She was on The Price is Right and double-handed spun the big wheel in 2009.

It was the beginning of her downfall. She pleaded guilty in federal court on Monday when she was snapped riding a zipline on a cruise and hauling furniture and bags of groceries.

She had claimed she couldn’t stand, sit, kneel, squat, climb, bend, reach or grasp to get disability.

For 5 years, she lived off the taxpayer's dime. There are thousands more like her who get away with it.

But the federal government and the IRS are now going to manage everyone's health care.

Good answer but not the correct one.

The next step is federal agents arrest your enemies.

Obama will have succeeded in fundamentally transforming this nation into Russia.

A defiant Chrysler is refusing a government request to recall about 2.7 million SUVs to fix fuel tanks that could leak and cause fires in rear-end collisions.

Chrysler said Tuesday that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has asked in a letter that the company recall Jeep Grand Cherokees from 1993 through 2004 and Jeep Libertys from 2002 through 2007.

Such a refusal by an auto company is rare. It was unclear how NHTSA would respond. Messages were left for an agency spokeswoman.

"The company does not agree with NHTSA's conclusions and does not intend to recall the vehicles," Chrysler said in a statement Tuesday. "The subject vehicles are safe and are not defective."

Chrysler maintains that NHTSA's conclusions are based on an incomplete analysis of data.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.– The FBI searched the offices of a California state senator and the Legislature's Latino caucus on Tuesday but would not disclose the reason for the investigation.

Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI office in Los Angeles, said the warrants were served at about 3 p.m. and agents remained inside the state Capitol in the evening.

She would not disclose the target of the search warrants, but Senate Chief Sergeant-at-Arms Tony Beard told The Associated Press it was Sen. Ron Calderon, a Democrat from the Los Angeles County city of Montebello.

"It's a federal search warrant served on Sen. Calderon's office. It's a sealed search warrant. I don't know what it relates to," Beard said.

He said Calderon was not present during the search and he did not know if the agents had removed any material.

Calderon did not immediately return a message left on his cellphone. His spokesman, Rocky Rushing, said he could not comment and referred calls to Los Angeles attorney Mark Geragos. Geragos did not immediately return messages left on his office and cellular phones.

Beard also told reporters who gathered outside Calderon's office Tuesday night that the office of the Latino Legislative Caucus, which is across the street from the Capitol in the Legislative Office Building, also was searched. A spokeswoman for the caucus, Lizette Mata, did not immediately return telephone and email messages.

Eimiller said the investigation is being led by federal authorities in Southern California, where Calderon is based. Two warrants had been issued and were under seal in U.S. District Court, but she did not know if that was in Los Angeles or Sacramento.

The U.S. men's national soccer team will play in San Diego for the first time since 2006 when it faces Guatemala in an exhibition game at Qualcomm Stadium July 5, U.S. Soccer announced Sunday.

The game will be the Americans' lone tuneup for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The U.S. will play its first game in the tournament to determine the champion of the North American, Central American and Caribbean region July 9 in Portland, Ore. against Belize.

"This is a very important opportunity for us to get in a good game before the start of the Gold Cup," U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. "It is our goal to win the tournament and the chance to play Guatemala will be good preparation for our group. We are thrilled to get back to San Diego, which has such an outstanding soccer tradition."

The game will begin at 8 p.m. and be televised by cable's NBC Sports Network and the Spanish-language broadcaster UniMas.

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie announced on Tuesday a highly unusual special election that was immediately criticized for costing the state $24 million and setting up a schedule that was likely to confuse the voting public. Voters will go to the polls on a Wednesday in October to cast ballots for a new senator, then return just three weeks later for the regularly scheduled general election, in which Mr. Christie will stand for a second term.

For Mr. Christie, a Republican who has cultivated an image as a tough-talking independent, the rapidly made choice represented a calculated risk — to endure short-term criticism from both Republicans and Democrats in order to protect his longer-term goals of winning re-election and positioning himself for a presidential run in 2016.

The announcement was closely watched in Washington, where he will soon send his choice of an interim senator to a tightly divided Senate in which the loss of even one vote complicates efforts by the White House and Congressional Democrats to advance their agenda. Mr. Christie did not announce whom he would appoint to the seat left open by the death of Frank R. Lautenberg on Monday, but said he intended to have someone in the seat by next week, when the Senate takes up new immigration bills.

In New Jersey, the decision to call a special election set off the kind of bitter partisan debate that Mr. Christie has labored to show himself as rising above. Democrats immediately accused him of squandering taxpayer money to protect his own political ambitions at a time when the state budget is under severe stress, and some promised to challenge the decision in court.

Oh I get it, Obama arranged the Arab spring. This lil conspiracy theory I would normally associate to someone in the mode of American lady but i guess you are all tarred with the same Bush.
Given this lil theory do you think it was wise of Bush & Co to free Iraq from tyranny so they could have car bombs blow up hundreds of different Islamic factions every week. Iran must love Bush, he rid them of their arch enemy so they could concentrate on making nukes. Taking down Iraq sure made the middle east a safe an peaceful place to enjoy democracy. A wonderful Republican achievement!
Obama can't arrange a pair of shoes. He encouraged it, and gave the impression that Americans supported it. Every time he called for Mubarak or Qaddafi to step down, he invigorated them. Now, he's arming them.

Obama is making it difficult for us to enjoy our democracy, that's a democrat achievement, so what's your point?

Iran belongs to Obama, he's fiddle-fcking around like he's running for office or something, like he's afraid to commit. Essentially, he's still voting "present". But I see where you're going, where every liberal goes when Obama blows it. After 5 years he still can't walk on his own two feet.

So you're saying Zimmerman should have stayed put too?
Because taking a gun and leaving your house in pursuit of a self-perceived trouble maker could lead to unintended consequences. As did happen.
Exiting his house was risky enough, but stepping off his own property in pursuit could have gotten him killed, since he didn't know whether Trayvon had backup close by or not. Martin had probably had past experiences where the cops didn't show up quick enough and the suspect was long gone so the call was pointless.
