Like I said the Jewish people had done nothing to Hitler or Germany, what that idiot blamed them for and what they did were two different things. Nothing imagined about what happened on 911, it was altogether too real, and I for one will never forget watching that plane go into that building. You know McVeigh was a Christian how? Did he tell you, or do you just know? My major issues are the terrorist and jerks like you who defend their rights. Too damn bad that you can't be the victim in their next attack, better yet one of YOUR CHILDREN then you can talk all the stupid BS you want.

Well Defiant sipping that Tea again.. Here in Florida we still have Texas beat when it comes to political corruption. Something you guys are once again in the backseat. Our Ricky has just opened a door for removing any voters rights to elect their representatives. Try beating that..
Political corruption has once again reared its head in Florida with Gov. Rick Scott. He now claims authority to, at will dismiss what the voters voted for. Transferring a republican legislator that opposed his penal sell off and Rick’s desires on the property insurance issue. Republican Mike Frasno has be removed from his constituents voted legislating official seat to be a tax collector. If the constituents of Frasno desire him to be their legislator they must reelect him, come 2014. Double jeopardy on the voters rights? This should be taken to the Florida supreme court for their ruling as to its legality. With this strategy what are we the voters to anticipate for the future? Governors will merely take opposition to their administration and remove them to some obscured position denying the voters their representatives, that they voted for. That opens the door to all forms of anti democracy corruptive scenarios. Will the President of the U.S. now gather up the Tea members and assign them to some obscured ambassador position. Example; Senator McConnell to be Antarctic ambassador with Senator Rand to the Artic and Senator Ted Cruz to Russia. Then replace them with more favorable representatives to his causes.
Gov. Rick Scott has once again demonstrated why Florida is ranked as number one most politically corrupt.

Have you heard the latest? Obama is weaning the Mortgage companies from the governments dependency.
Its been seven long years of the housing markets starting to fall apart since the republicans ignited the fuse that exploded the Housing Markets. 2006 to 2011 American homes lost, on “Average” 33% of their purchased value. Politicians on both sides of the aisle promised , and promised, and promised to build a more secure system of financing American homes. Results of their inability due to a dysfunctional congress cemented the nationalization of housing financing.
Last year 87% of the new mortgages were government guaranteed through Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration. Near on to 9 out of 10 new homes were under the terms of the guaranteed mortgages and or loans.
August 6th 2013 that would be challenged and demands for a change from Obama in a speech stating that the housing market is on the mends and its time to “wind down” Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.. In the Phoenix speech Obama stated “I believe that our housing system should operate where there’s a limited government role and private lending should be the backbone of the housing market,”
Obama praised how the bipartisan effort on replacing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac… New system, would charge lenders, for a government guarantee, if they should so require one. Increasing the cost of loans is a given. A braking mechanism to runaway housing scenarios.
Obama is seeking to return the housing markets to the levels prior to the lighting of the fuse in 2006. Pass 5 years 87% new mortgages were government guaranteed. Before the republican’s creation of the deregulated crisis, less than 40% was government guaranteed new mortgages. We are witnessing the slow transition of returning housing markets back to the private sectors. One is with the rising cost of interest on a 30 year loan in July was 4.37 %, which is a full percentage point higher from the previous year. Government is pulling back its suppression to foster low interest rates to new mortgages. Consumers damaged credit due to the Great Recession is suppressing a return to housing markets by the consumers. Further consumer suppression strategies for housing is now being demonstrated by Freddie Mac that requires credit scores 756 and higher to be eligible for application for a mortgage. That’s an increase from their 720 credit score requirements from the 2006 era of mortgaging.
Mortgage companies are fearing the pursuit of refunds from the lenders when borrowers default is to aggressive. Obama counters that to continue with government subsidizing the responsibility of the lender is not acceptable in the long run for housing.
Taxpayers will remain on the hook for future housing bubbles without some coherent reform to the present system is put forth. Bipartisan will demand sound and rational debate. Difficulty is when , Tea is being served during House debates interrupting rational intelligent debates to move forward.
Interest groups, banks, builders, real estate agents and the consumers will seek to persuade the politicians course in their goals for financial reform in the housing markets. Standard obstacles in a bipartisan debate. No doubt they will be again. Hopefully without Tea being served.
A distasteful scenario appears on the horizon. Cost of owning a home will rise without the government support and increase the reluctance for mortgage companies to lend. Now this where politicians go to work and earn their pay. Negotiate, debate, argue, compromise, present the nation with a results and move on.
That leaves an unpalatable choice between making the cost of the system an explicit government obligation, or making it harder for Americans to buy homes. Any reduction in government support for the mortgage market is likely to increase the cost of home borrowing.

No you are wrong once again. Hitler blamed the Jews for losing WWI, blamed all of Germany's woes on the Jews. He considered them sub human and needed to be eliminated. Just as you feel toward the Muslims.
Using your mindset, Tim Mcveigh was a Christian. So should you have the same hatred for Christians because he blew up the Oklahoma city Federal building?

"Tell a big lie, make it simple, repeat it often, and they will believe it"...ADOLPH HITLER.....Hitler needed a scapegoat, as he said, to"focus"the people on.So, he told the German people that the Jews were controlling Russia, and that the Russian people did not have the resources to overthrow their"Jewish masters".

Not at all are facts getting under your skin boy?

Hitler used the Jews for the scapegoat, blaming them for losing WWI. Learn your history before you try to refute me boy.

Direct quote from Hitler himself:

“when out of the cool nights the Allied soldiers already seemed to hear the dull rumble of the advancing storm units of the German army, and with eyes fixed in fear and trepidation awaited the approaching judgment, suddenly a flaming red light arose in Germany, casting its glow into the last shell-hole of the enemy front: at the very moment when the German divisions were receiving their last instructions for the great attack, the general strike broke out in Germany in all of its armaments factories thus depriving the German army of crucial arms and ammunitions. It strengthened the enemy belief in victory and relieved the paralyzing despair of the Allied front-in the time that followed, thousands of German soldiers had to pay for this with their blood. The instigators of this vilest of all scoundrel tricks were the aspirants to the highest state positions of revolutionary Germany were Jews and Unions led by Jews.

That demonstrates the far degree of unfitness as not being with the reality aspects of these new times as what should be doing in the rules and appropriateness when Obama says he has 'no patience' for Russia's anti-gay stance

It is a world of diversities.
It is ridiculous to say to Russia to do whatever related to LGBT in the Sochi Olympics.

NO conference of G-8, G-20 would make sense to deal with issues of gay marriage, abortion, etc., TO SAY that every country must be alike on these issues because the planet is the policy of diversities.

Just US having gay marriage by even shuffling out willing of coalition in Iraq, does not mean it has to say to Russia to do the same.

Each country has its own policy regarding gay marriage and other matters, which might mean such countries' attempt to tell Russia to do so could be a violation.

People have different ideology, value, beliefs, cultures and so on worldwide, that no people have to agree but people can endorse AS WELL AS THEY LIKE IT.

PEOPLE MUST RESPECT THE VALUE OF DIFFERENT POLICIES OF OTHER COUNTRIES, INCLUDING RUSSIA ON HAVING NO GAY MARRIAGE.

REGARDING SOCHI OLYMPICS, no One can use gay stands to get mixed up on calling , as if is to make the whole world wanting other countries' policies to have gay marriage with no eligibility of votes.

When that says it is failure to do so to make gay issue as not applicable, the diversities in regard to this world aspects are the ways of global people's rights to not have gay marriage for example, in order to ramify the right direction for all people on the planet.

HOWEVER, SOCHI OLYMPICS should TREAT ALL PEOPLE AS EQUAL, regardless if they are gay or not, during Olympic competition period. No one is required to tell him/her as being gay. Yet if one is disclosed being gay, he/she would be treated as equal, and won't be subject to fines and penalties, for there is not to be the voicing to Russia that should be doing what about gays, because it is just a sports game competition and none of others' business.

The only arena if they want to do is to take it to G-20, or G-8 meetings, and go from there, which may also or may not be rejected. Still, nobody gets his/her own way in a world of policy of diversities, even they come up with willing of the coalition, or make issues on gay stands in any meeting as that is really too odd. As was wrongful and war crime resulted committed by Bush as the world says, they can't do any more willing of the coalition again, what else is so confused to Obama?

It has to remind people that it is the focus of sports games competition, while it is definitely not the destination of gay camp or resort.
Stable and rational people must understand this --do not make ridiculous and illogical gambits of useless view to stand in the way of the International Olympic spirits in the Sochi Olympics for all the needs of global public.
