"documented in an internal report -- an internal report withheld from at least one leader in Congress responsible for oversight"
and probably withheld from anyone outside of the NSA.
but as usual you missed.
"That said, he added, "Congress has not been given enough flak" for failing at its oversight duties.
"The congressional intelligence committees have not provided the oversight they were originally intended to," he said, suggesting that the House and Senate Judiciary Committees launch an investigation or that an independent committee like the 9/11 Commission investigate surveillance activities."
""The FISC is forced to rely upon the accuracy of the information that is provided to the Court," U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton, chief of the FISC, said in a written statement to the Post."
"In January 2008, the NSA appeared to have mistakenly collected data on numerous phone calls from the Washington area code 202, thinking they were foreign phone calls from Egypt, whose country code is 20"
so Congress can fix the mess.

and as usual you missed.
"Other supporters of the law suggested the cuts could actually cost counties and cities more money than if they simply paid for part-time workers’ health-care costs.
“There are some costs of doing business where it really does cost you more money to have multiple people on the job,” said Gary Burtless, a senior fellow of economic studies at the Brookings Institution."
"“I don’t think this is going to be a big direct-cost burden for counties and municipalities,” Burtless added."
"They could try to hire more part-time workers and achieve the coverage they need that way, though it's hard to attract people to a 24 hour a week job with no benefits.
"And while some of their drivers are retirees and don't rely on the income, there are some that do. And those drivers might head for greener pastures.
Anna Simo is the Executive Director for the agency.
"There's a lot of competition right now with the oil and gas industry, and they're paying better wages than we are. You know, and now we're cutting the hours," she says.
Another possibility would be to make a small number of workers full time with benefits, but then you have less drivers to work with total."

Teabagger Donald Trump and Mitt Romney backer says Obama is swindling millions and putting the USA into debt..........
New York A.G. Sues Donald Trump Over 'Unlicensed' University
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is suing Donald Trump's for-profit investment school, "Trump University," which the lawsuit claims operated as an unlicensed educational institution for about six years and was essentially an "elaborate bait-and-switch" operation.
The New York Times reports:
"In a statement, Eric T. Schneiderman, the attorney general, said Mr. Trump appeared in advertisements for the school making "false promises" to persuade more than 5,000 people around the country — including 600 New Yorkers — "to spend tens of thousands of dollars they couldn't afford for lessons they never got."
"The advertisements claimed, for instance, that Mr. Trump had handpicked instructors to teach students "a systematic method for investing in real estate." But according to the lawsuit, Mr. Trump had not chosen even a single instructor at the school and had not created the curriculums for any of its courses....
"The inquiry into Trump University came to light in May 2011 after dozens of people had complained to the authorities in New York, Texas, Florida and Illinois about the institution, which attracted prospective students with the promise of a free 90-minute seminar about real estate investing that, according to the lawsuit,'served as a sales pitch for a three-day seminar costing $1,495.' This three-day seminar was itself 'an upsell,' the lawsuit said, for increasingly costly 'Trump Elite' packages that included so-called personal mentorship programs at $35,000 a course
A switch and bait scheme swindeled millions of people taking Trump's course of how to make millions......Trumped made millions off these people and the people went broke !!
That damn Obama wasnt born in this country says Trump ......

(Reuters)- The New York state attorney general filed a $40 million lawsuit on Saturday against the teabagger Trump and Mitt Romney supporter, Donald Trump's for-profit investment school, Trump University, accusing it of engaging in illegal business practices, according to the New York Times.
The newspaper reported that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman alleged that the real estate mogul, his Trump Organization company and others made false claims about classes at the school, including that Trump handpicked instructors.
Representatives for the New York attorney general's office and Trump were not available for comment late on Saturday.
But Trump said in a post on Twitter, "Light weight NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is trying to extort me with a civil law suit."
The New York attorney general's lawsuit seeks restitution of at least $40 million, the Times said, and it alleges that Trump University was run as an unlicensed educational institution from 2005 to 2011 and that Trump did not create the curriculum for any of the school's courses.

" I know how to make wealth" - Donald Trump, Jan 23, 2001
but..........Trump filed for bankruptcy 4 times
First things first: Donald Trump has filed for corporate bankruptcy four times, in 1991, 1992, 2004 and 2009. All of these bankruptcies were connected to over-leveraged casino and hotel properties in Atlantic City, all of which are now operated under the banner of Trump Entertainment Resorts. He has never filed for personal bankruptcy — an important distinction when considering his ability to emerge relatively unscathed, at least financially.
"I can teach people how to make wealth "!!---I'll show you how!

and you missed.
"Few foreign policy experts predicted the Arab uprisings, and it's unlikely the United States could have — or should have — done anything to prevent the protests."
" On August 5, a Russian spokesman said Russia would defend Russian citizens in South Ossetia if they were attacked.
During the night of 7 to 8 August 2008, Georgia launched a large-scale military offensive against South Ossetia, in an attempt to reclaim the territory. Georgia claimed that it was responding to attacks on its peacekeepers and villages in South Ossetia, and that Russia was moving non-peacekeeping units into the country. The Georgian attack caused casualties among Russian peacekeepers, who resisted the assault along with Ossetian militia."
"An independent report, commissioned by the Council of the European Union stated that the war was started by the Georgian attack "that was not justified by international law". The report said the commission found no evidence for Georgia's claims of being invaded by Russia prior to launching an attack on South Ossetia"
and the US
"U.S. president George W. Bush's statement to Russia was: "Bullying and intimidation are not acceptable ways to conduct foreign policy in the 21st century."
so the hard line by Putin gee wonder why he has that chip on his shoulder.

"But the Obamacare system will provide valuable health-care subsidies to many student-workers and foreign guest workers hired for jobs in America."
you missed "hired for jobs".
allowing business to skirt the law by only hiring foreign students would be the result of not providing healthcare.
or only hiring guest workers.
why does the right wing value guest workers over American citizens?
#52220 Aug 26, 2013
and you are using false logic to claim for example that a stimulus payment of ten million dollars to rebuild a road by ten men,means that the individual workers got one million dollars each.
you forget the value of the rebuilding of the road.
a road that needed to be worked on.
but while your at it.
the stimulus contained tax cuts for businesses.
if it is such a expensive failure the right wing should be clamoring for the removal of the tax cuts as they did not work.
so which is it a failure or a success?
#52221 Aug 26, 2013
"But we already know to an extent that everyone is spying on everyone at all times, even at G20 summits, so it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise."

he wants to stop healthcare for people in his State until he decides to do his job.
which is charging those criminals with crimes involving identity theft under WV law
" upon conviction, shall be punished by confinement in the penitentiary not more than five years, or fined not more than one thousand dollars, or both"
he could be part of the solution instead of being part of the problem.
sounds like WV can ask their AG to enforce the law.

women in the White House are paid less than men. Not less as in "less pay for the same work" but less as in "they get hired for lower paying jobs."
"When a salary analysis of the same time period is done to see how women fared when considering the entire White House staff, we find that women, on average, earned about $10,000 a year less than the men.
It is hugely important to note that this figure does not represent women being paid less for doing the same job as a male employee. The White House is not engaging in discriminatory behavior when it comes to providing equal pay to women who are doing the same job as a male counterpart."
#52230 Aug 26, 2013
and as usual you missed
"Darin Selnick, a VA political appointee in the George W. Bush administration, called the quickly finished claims an old “sleight-of-hand trick.” Selnick said regional office directors and central office staffers misled VA leadership during the past decade with similar numbers games that disguised the problem and kicked the can down the road."
sounds like the House of representatives need to hold hearings about it.
maybe Issa can actually do something.
but if history is a judge he will fail.
why the republican led House hates veterans is always a wonder.
the Republicans claim to care about them.
#52232 Aug 26, 2013
"On the major cost-cutting policies proposed by IPAB, Congress would have the power to accept or reject IPAB suggestions, so the popular idea that the panel would unilaterally ration care is false."
guess palin can admit she got it wrong.

Our warmonger is at it again. Obama once again bypasses Congress. Where is the outrage from our far left liberals on here? Would they be in hiding? I remember them calling President Bush a warmonger and calling for impeachment. But silence from them now.
