well, i do see that the deficit is shrinking which is out of the realm of conservative behavior.
no one is perfect.
As a fiscal conservative Homer appreciates shrinking deficits. Why does spending always level off and eventually go down when there is a Democratic president? Anyone?

If there were no stimulus package, which I believe was a necessary evil, there would be almost no real Obama spending, just a continuation of spending already in place and lost revenues due to the Bush Depression.

Yes I see a pattern; Is it conspiracy?
Capture of Osama without archaic torture tactics.{Mathematical algorithms} No invasion of Pakistan with hundreds of $Billions for the military industrialist.
Libya’s war, without one American solider dying in its entire operation and objective. Completed within months.
Obtains a water downed Health Care system for our nation in spite of the most dysfunctional congress in our nations history.
Returned economic stability in record time, from the brink of the abysses of a Great Depression. Faster than Clinton, Reagan and F.D.R.
Seeking to expand our ruined higher education of which we are no longer the “best in the world”.
I have a dream that some day our nation will discover the benefits of Universal Education. Some Western Industrious Nations have, for years, proven its necessity and its benefits that return to their industrious nation to progress.

WTH did people think invading LIBYA was?

WTH were we doing in Libya?

Aside from one of the Worst flocking foreign policy Failure we've ever had to witness.

Maybe the next big lie to the American public will be "those aren't missiles, they're over sized crayola crayons."


Meanwhile, North Korea tried to export gas masks to Syria but they were seized in Turkey along with arms and ammunition, a Japanese daily newspaper reported on Tuesday.

A Libya-registered vessel, identified as Al En Ti Sar, left North Korea for Syria earlier this year with the consignment, the Sankei Shimbun said quoting unnamed sources from the U.S. military, Japanese and South Korean intelligence.

The vessel searched in April by Turkish authorities, who had been tipped off by the U.S. Officials seized 1,400 rifles and pistols and some 30,000 bullets as well as gas masks apparently for chemical protection, the newspaper said.

<quoted text>Yea well if that were the case, the CIA under Bush was a complete joke! It's their job to track the movements of potential threats. The reason for invading Iraq was, " Saddam Hussein was a potential threat &, for you to believe that the CIA Allowed such movements, only coincides with my assumption of your ignorance! Bush said, Saddam was transporting weapons through mobile labs. Pictures from a satellite confirmed such movements, yet no weapons. Now a satellite can see that, up close &, full view, what we're they asleep while Saddam was moving his stockpile to Syria? Give me a break, you fell for the biggest hoax on the American population. Now you're stuck trying to evidence to save face, but too late.
The biggest hoax on the American people was called, not named, Barack Hussein O'bama. The world knows it, why don't you?

ok Bush apologists, this should be the last word on the subject.

Syria is suspected of having one of the most advanced chemical warfare (CW) capabilities in the Middle East. The country's initial CW capability was provided by Egypt prior to the October 1973 war against Israel. Since then, Syria appears to have acquired an indigenous capability to develop and produce chemical weapons agents, including mustard gas and sarin, and possibly also VX nerve agent. Chemical weapons agents have allegedly been produced since the 1980s at facilities located near the Hama, Homs, and Al-Safira villages in the Aleppo region. However, Syria remains dependent on foreign sources for some dual-use equipment, and for the precursor chemicals critical to CW agent production. In recent years, Iran has been identified as a supplier of technical assistance and facilities for developing and producing CW-related precursors.

much like the birthers, pretty soon you Bush apologists will be going on about how search engines should be banned from the internet in the name of all things liberal.

How is the ACA going to be defunded dumbass? The Republicans in the House can take all of the useless, going nowhere votes they want but it still has to pass the Senate where they stand no chance of even being considered and even less chance of the President signing any such hare brained bill.
The reason the USPS is in financial straits lies solely with legislation passed by Republicans and signed by George W. Bush that required the Post Office – unlike any other company or government agency to prefund 75 years worth of employee health benefits in a 10 year period. It's a bald faced attempt to privatize mail delivery and bust the Postal Workers union.
No one uses it moron? The other day I was mailing a package to my son and there were at least ten people in line ahead of me. Very seldom do I walk into a post office that doesn't have anyone waiting to be served.
You're an idiot!
ObamaKKKare can be defunded by simple inaction. The current ObamaKKKare taxes are not nearly enough to fund the program.

The Post Office is a dinosaur, the modern Pony Express. Let it die.

<quoted text>Syria has a large chemical weapons facility located near Al Safirah which lies just to the Southeast of Aleppo. CNN did a special report on the facility last year with satellite images, a reporter on the ground and interviews with persons familiar with the site.
Syria didn't need or want Saddam's poorly made and improperly stored crap as it has a far superior facility along with guidance from long time ally Russia.
The born of stupidity right wing myth has been debunked over and over yet the crazies here persist with the nonsense.
If true, the idiot Obama will probably blow up the Russian facility and spread chemical weapons over a large area.

Putin will be pissed.

The other option is Al Qaeda.
Are you people complete idiots?
What you are proposing is helping Al Qaeda take over a country, you morons.
Have you given any thought as to what Al Qaeda will do with the chemical weapons when they take possession of them?
If Assad sinks an American aircraft carrier with the Russian anti-ship missiles, the Arab world cheers. We already know the Arab world cheered on 9/11(2001).
It's a now-win situation for the US.
How about we let Europe take the lead on this. Europe helps whomever they desire, and we stand behind Europe. The Europeans are probably helping the secular rebels, whereas Obama is arming the Al Qaeda terrorist insurgents.
If Europe takes the lead, there is a chance a secular government will be installed, like in Libya. If Obama takes the lead, Al Qaeda will take control of Syria.
Now, who here is in favor of putting chemical weapons in the hands of Al Qaeda?
Still, it isn't certain Assad used chemical weapons. It could very well be the so-called "rebels" (who are actually Al Qaeda insurgents - Syria is being invaded) used them to assist the US involvement.
It's a trap. An idiot can see it. Obama is Putin's bitch. And Putin will spank Obama's sycophant ass once more.
Obama already put Al Qaeda in power in Libya and Egypt.

Why should Syria be any different?

Smokers could face sticker shock when shopping for individual or small-group health insurance in the new state health marketplaces scheduled to open this fall, due to a controversial clause in the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, that allows insurers to penalize smokers by continuing to charge higher rates to tobacco users.
President Barack Obama's landmark health insurance reform legislation ends decades of advantageous underwriting practices by barring insurers from, among other things, limiting lifetime benefits and denying coverage due to pre-existing conditions.
But the law widely known as Obamacare also aims to discourage tobacco use, the nation's largest preventable health hazard, which kills some 443,000 Americans each year at an annual cost to the nation of $193 billion in medical care and lost productivity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
How do you combat tobacco use without discriminating against smokers? The ACA attempts this balancing act by allowing insurers to continue their practice of charging tobacco users a so-called "smoker surcharge" but limiting it to 50 percent above the rates they charge nontobacco users, beginning in 2014. news/obamacare-penalty-kicks-s mokers-ash-100000795.html
Why would any smoker tell the truth?

So let's talk about how Bush got re-elected. I mean John Kerry aside, who voted for Bush the 2nd time around?
Enough to get him elected. I didn't vote for Barack Hussein Obama the first time he ran. Nor the second. Now we have Homer & "Obama Money" who voted for him "for the stuff". Whata country!!
