For doing something really stupid. You are obviously living in your own little world surrounded by conspiracy theories. I doubt it would take much to push you over the edge. You remind me of "Ted" Kaczynski.
Interesting....

How old were you when you participated in your first conspiracy? 7?, 8? 9?
Almost everyone participated in their first conspiracy before they were 10 years old.
When was the last time you participated in a conspiracy?
Last year? Last month? Last week?... Are you participating in a conspiracy right now posting here?

A conspiracy is an agreement among some humans with the intent of keeping that agreement from being learned by other humans, or just one human. It's one of the most characteristic activities of humans. It's part of our instinct, dumbass.

Let's see if there's a conspiracy going on right now in the White House.

Do you know of any time any administration in the history of the United States briefed Congress and excluded members of Congress solely because they didn't belong to a specific political party?

(Of course, there is some information I'm going to provide after you answer this post.)

Can anyone remember when the Executive Branch briefed Congress on any issue and excluded members of Congress because they belonged to a particular political party?
There probably plenty of examples but one was held in May, 2007 with Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice joined Bush for a White House meeting with at least 11 rank-and-file Republicans in the House, as well as Minority Leader John Boehner to discuss a spending package to fund the war.

Millions of Americans try to enroll in health care benefits during the first days of a new government health care program. They rely on indispensable government website that had been “pitched as a high-tech way” to sort through available coverage options. They’re encountering countless glitches and technical errors: the website freezes, displays incorrect plan information and sends insurers erroneous reports.

Administration officials — clearly caught off guard by the surge of technical difficulties — respond to “tens of thousands of complaints” from angry beneficiaries and promise to “fix every problem as quickly possible.”

This sounds like the familiar story of the last few days of the Obama administration’s rollout of the exchanges. But, actually, those quotes, and that scenario, are taken from the Bush administration’s efforts to implement the Medicare prescription drug benefit in 2005 and 2006.

Not only was Bush’s rollout “anything but smooth,” but administration officials had “some trouble getting the [online] tool up and running” and had to delay its debut for weeks. What’s more, computer glitches caused low-income beneficiaries to go without needed medications and sent pharmacies the wrong drug information. Before it was all resolved, Dr. Mark McClellan, Bush’s head of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), appeared at hearings before the House Committee On Energy And Commerce, laying out the flaws in the law’s implementation and detailing how the administration would address them.

You apply for Graduate School with an undergraduate degree.

That Pakistan story has been debunked a gazillion times -like 99&% of your posts.
You need to work on your reading and comprehension of the written English language, dumbass. Nobody mentioned applying to any graduate school.

Barry Soetoro never transferred from Occidental to Columbia. Barry Soetoro was enrolled at Occidental. Therefore, it would have to be Barry Soetoro that supposedly transferred from Occidental to Columbia.
Aren't you the indoctrinated clown that posted some pdf list of graduates of Columbia with the name "Barrack Hussein Obama" on it? Now, if Barry Soetoro transferred from Occidental to Columbia, how did Barrack Obama graduate from Columbia?
How about we take a look at Obama's file at Columbia and get to the bottom of this. First thing up is his application. I'd like to know how a poor student at Occidental got admitted to Columbia to begin with. And, who was it that worked and sacrificed to be accepted to Columbia and was denied so that poor student named Barry Soetoro could be admitted?

Obama was a dropout at Occidental, and never attended classes at Columbia. PBS proved that when they, with all their resources, couldn't find the first person who ever met Obama at Columbia.

It was actually a grant set aside for foreign students at a graduate level.
Now, why would Obama, who would become a dropout at Occidental, apply for a grant for graduate students as a foreign student?
Well, if you can get into Harvard after dropping out of Occidental and never attending classes at Columbia, getting a grant would not be a challenge, would it?
Here's another question you ran away from.
How could Obama have travelled to Pakistan in 1981 with a US passport?
Let's see how much of an idiot you really are here....

Oh, hell. I'll just give it to you and avoid the inane circles you run in every time your ass gets put in the fire.

Sebelius will brief Congress on the problems with the ObamaKare website trainwreck, and all Republican members of the House of Representatives are prohibited from attending.

W.Va. chicken farmer wins EPA lawsuit over runoff
By The Associated Press
By Vicki Smith
Advertiser
MORGANTOWN, W.Va.-- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has no legal right to force a West Virginia poultry grower to obtain water pollution permits for runoff from her Hardy County farm because it is routine storm water discharge, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.
U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey said litter and manure washed by rain into Chesapeake Bay tributaries at Lois Alt's Hardy County farm is agricultural runoff, not a fixed pollution source such as a factory. That means it's exempt from the requirement that it be permitted and regulated under the federal Clean Water Act, he said.
"The term 'agricultural storm water discharge' was not and has not been defined in the statute" covering permitting, Bailey wrote. "The fact that Congress found it unnecessary to define the term indicates that the term should be given its ordinary meaning."
The EPA initially threatened to fine Alt if she didn't seek a permit for her farm, which it called a "concentrated animal feeding operation." After Alt sued last year, EPA withdrew the fines. In March, it offered to dismiss the case.
But the American Farm Bureau Federation and the West Virginia Farm Bureau joined Alt in keeping the case alive, arguing it had economic implications for farmers nationwide.
Bailey agreed, noting that the EPA had imposed virtually identical requirements on two other West Virginia poultry growers and one in Virginia. The judge also said the agency hadn't changed its underlying position that some chicken farms are concentrated animal feeding operations.
That would mean the EPA can require them to obtain permits they've never previously needed.
The Justice Department, which represented the EPA, said it is reviewing the court's opinion.
Cheers went up in a staff meeting when the West Virginia Farm Bureau got word of the ruling.

Maybe there's a chicken factory farm located on a feeder stream to one of the lakes that provide for Flack's municipal water.

Showing & drinking water with chicken sh*t with high levels of antibiotics & growth hormones must be pleasant.

You are running in circles to avoid answering the question.

The Executive Branch of government will brief the Legislative Branch of government on a problem the government is having.

When has any administration excluded elected members of Congress from such a briefing?

Never... until now. Obama dupe Sebelius will brief only Democrats in Congress on the ObamaKare trainwreck. Republicans are prohibited from attending that briefing to be conducted in the Capital Building.

Pretty simple. The State Department issued a Travel Advisory for Pakistan in 1981 regarding updated visa requirements. Those warnings are advisory only. Americans could still freely visit the country. Pakistan was not on any State Department travel ban list for U.S. citizens. It's just another one of those conspiracy theories you love so much.

Here's a 1981 New York Times article about travel in Pakistan:

"Tourists can obtain a free, 30-day visa (necessary for Americans) at border crossings and airports."

So, you admit that Bush met with just Republicans in the past?

But I guess Obama can't meet with just Democrats?
