But, STATE/TSF,here's my take on Christie.He's innocent.
#46988 Feb 4, 2014
It is entirely within the realm of POSSIBILITIES that Christie is innocent of any knowledge of bridge gate. Time will certainly tell. But I really do not believe that his complete innocence is within the range of probabilities and therefore I am willing to wager on the outcome of the investigation based on belief in probability rather than belief in the purity of a New Jersey politician. if such a thing even exists..

As I said, I am sooo shocked that a New Jersey politician, a democrat no less, would misappropriate the grand sum of $97,000. I have never been to NJ , and I hope I never have occasion to be located there. I am more concerned with NC where outside interests networked primarily by the Koch brothers have already pumped over $7,000,000 dollars into NC to change the outcome of our election to favor republican Thom Tillis. Tillis will not even attend republican debates or fundraisers. He doesn't have to. With the Koch network pumping over $400,000,000 into the 2012 election nationally , and now backing Tillis, he doesn't have to. So why are people outside NC pumping such huge sums of cash into NC to change the outcome of OUR elections? How many of you republican boys and girls out there believe it is to help NC?

NC is getting lots of attention nationally. It is due primarily to the stupid idiot antics of our republican legislature., Attempts to steal municipal airports, possum drops, tits, official state religion, voter repression, etc are getting all the laughs and attention. But what isn't getting attention is the almost total take over of NC finances and assets by fantastically wealthy hustlers pulling the strings on our puppet legislators and governor. Just one example : The coastal management commission now has no members representing forestry, commercial fishing, sport fishing, farming, marine biology or .conservation. Ever wonder why? Who is pushing oil and gas exploration off the NC coast? Governor McCrory and his republican cronies. Why has the Department of Environment and Natural Resources been essentially castrated? Why have all impediments to unchecked offshore drilling and onshore fracking been systematically eliminated? How much benefit from all this do you expect to receive? How much can the commercial fishermen expect to receive? What about charter boat operators? Farmers? Its all perfectly safe , right? Why do they call our shores the graveyard of the Atlantic? Nothing could go wrong in our turbulent waters and volatile weather like it did in the relatively calm gulf, right?

A middle school in Marinette, Wisconsin got 5th-8th graders together to asked students to step forward to answer “yes” to a series of highly personal questions. Questions like…
Do your parents drink?
Do you cut yourself?
Has anyone in your family been to jail?
Have you ever wanted to commit suicide?
Do you or your parents do drugs?
School administrators said that this would help the kids to be better and kinder friends.“The intent of this activity was to build stronger, more respectful relationships among students,”according to Principal Shawn Limberg. Of course, Limberg also said this was completely voluntary, an assertion that was disputed by one young girl who told her mother she’d have to go to in-school suspension if she didn’t participate.
Several parents voiced their concerns and had them brushed off. Amanda Fifarek, mother of a 7th grade student, was told,“That all the students were lying; all the students got together and planned it out and if they weren’t lying, it was all misperceptions. They didn’t specifically say do your parents do drugs.”
This is the type of socialist dumbing down the public schools are doing to our children. Comply with the state or you will be punished.

Group admits 15 million in illegal contributions
The group, the Arizona-based Center to Protect Patient Rights, is one of the largest political nonprofits in the country, serving as a conduit for tens of millions of dollars in political spending, much of it raised by the Kochs and their political operation and spent by other nonprofits active in the 2010 and 2012 elections

Stealing Oil on Indian Reservations
In May 1989, the Senate held hearings on what the Senate special committee on investigations called "a widespread scheme to steal oil on Indian land." According to data the committee compiled, Koch took 1.95 million barrels of oil it didn’t pay for from 1986 to 1988.
The Senate referred the case to the Justice Department, but no indictment followed. In December 1999 in a civil trial, the jury found that "Koch Industries had made 24,587 false claims in buying oil, underpaying the U.S. government for royalties on Native American land from 1985 to 1989." Koch settled the case in 2001 for $25 million.

The second-largest private company in the United States, Koch Industries is also a conglomerate, whose subsidiary businesses operate in some of the world's most profitable markets. Given such a diverse portfolio, it's no surprise that the company has spent millions of dollars lobbying the federal government this past decade on a range of issues, from defense appropriations to financial regulatory reform.

You are a drooling imbecile if you believe these folks comply to the letter or the intent of the election laws. The objective is one world government by corporations. They do not need force. They simply buy everything by propagandizing to the uneducated, un-sophisticated , ignorant ninnies who think they are standing for ideology. Meanwhile, you, your children, their children, your government and governments worldwide are being robbed blind while poor idiots support more tax breaks for the rich.
#47003 Feb 5, 2014
Buy everything and use propaganda? Sort of like the Democracy Alliance buying politicians and media outlets? Thanks for making my point.

Not exactly. It predicts that many people will abandon second jobs and part time jobs that that they took in order to afford insurance., Someone else will step in fill those positions , so the jobs are not lost. It should lower unemployment even further.
The republican gloom/ doom /obstruction permeates even neutral news such as this . It is like the Soviet news release about an air race held between the USA and Russia which the USA won. Soviet news reported that the Russians came in second and that the USA was second from last.

United Nations Commission says Catholic Church needs to change it's position on abortion. Muslims who are also against abortions are strangely enough not mentioned. The war on Christians continues.

wonder why the Democrats outside the state of Wisconsin pumped so much money into the state trying to get rid of Republican governor there?
