There are usually four Marines detailed to the White House at any given time. They volunteer for what is considered the exclusive duty. Their main duty is to act as (mostly ceremonial) guards outside the West Wing lobby, where they open and close the door for White House officials.

They work in 30-minute shifts for as long as the president is working in the West Wing, finishing when he retires to his private quarters. They are familiar sight to people who visit the White House and visible to tourists outside the gates on the Pennsylvania Avenue.

They aim to be solemn an unflinching. Colleagues lauded a Marine who didn’t react when a Christmas tree feel next to him in 2006 as example for successors.

The Marines work while the President is at work in the West Wing, and finish he retires to his private quarters.

Attending events like Obama’s Rose Garden presser with Erdogan Thursday is another part of the Marines’ duties.

Yes, there certainly is - and was. I've been screaming the loudest for at least the past 3 decades that our health care system is a big friggin' joke.
The health care industry is raking everyone over the frikkin' coals by abusing health care insurance as a flow of money and a personal cash cow.
And no one should be denied basic health care needs in this country - especially this country.
Unfortunately, when logic and reason finally emerged to LOWER THE COSTS of health care by cost free and practical steps, the Democrats loaded up the Obamacare crap machine and it's going to start flinging everywhere as soon as they turn on the fan in January.

<quoted text>So let’s be clear here. As I understand it:
1) the press printed a story which revealed classified information and blew the cover of an intelligence asset
2) the government did not censor this story but has tried to determine where the press got the info
3) as part of that the government got a warrant to seize logs of calls
Where exactly is the problem? Are we really saying it’s beyond the pale for the government to investigate the leaking of secrets to the press? It seems much more reasonable to say the AP is trying to make a scandal out of nothing because it deflects blame away from itself. Aprilvue,despite your hysterical hyperbole , no one's privacy rights were 'violated ' in this case ---certainly not press reporters source-reporter privileges(which is not a 'right' in the U S Constitution)--no contents of the e-mails were read. And a legal warrant was attained from a U S Court Judge too. So, tell me again how this Justice Department internal investigation of its own intelligence agencies jeopardized any Americans rights? What about the rights of the Intelligence agent threatened by his exposure? He or she is an American too.

Government gets a warrant for the telephone records of all Muslims.

Didn't the unions go into panic mode when they found out Obamacare was just another tax law? Or was it because of the skyrocketing premiums? Or the growing confusion over the exchanges and filing for Obamacare?
They went into panic mode over something. Just don't care enough to look it up right now.
Just think it's funny for whatever reason.
If you'd done a little more research into unions, you might not be searching for another pittance to supplement your SS at 62...Wal-Mart greeter? Naw, you'd never be anyone's idea of having a good day...

On the contrary; I have no disdain for people who work. Carol does, she's so delusional that she fancies herself part of the 1%.
I am in favor of rights for workers, increased minimum wage, universal single payer healthcare etc.

<quoted text> AARP is a scam. Gee I wonder why where privatized SSI programs are used people get up to 3 times the monthly return of Social Security. AARP is political. The voucher program was a good start.
AARP is a 501 (c)(4) amazing eh?

BTW there's much more to AARP that the non profit angle such as the foundation and God knows what else.

It was one of the best ideas ever__a lobbying group for old fks of "all" colors, religions and "political stripes."

Iraq would had fallen to Al Queda.
Al Queda would had secretly undermined and eventually eliminated Saddam, He was not radical enough, and Iran would had taken over Iraq.
Bush ONLY slowdown the take over because now Iran will STILL take over Iran, it is just a matter of time!!!
As soon as Iran really gets the nuke, it will behave erratic. I do NOT know if Israel will attack or not, but I do know that Iran will definitively take over Iraq.
Pretty sure the Israelis will attack Iran's nuke facilities first.
