She comes across as an embittered, opinionated loud mouth who thinks her say is the only say and the final say. Got news for her, the world doesn't spin on her opinion. She comes across as a bored house frau who spends way too much time echoing the folks she watches on her television set which is always set to Fox. It ain't her way or the highway. She needs to take her fox goggles off once in awhile. Nobody likes a know it all and she's a know it all if there ever was one. Bet she's been posting Fox opinions non stop since 2008!
It's not about me. It's not about you.

It's about what is right and questioning the motives of those in power who would lie to us.

Is anything registering?

Well, I hate for us to part ways on a bad note because you and your scooter stories used to make me laugh and endeared you to me despite your liberally biased confusion.

But if you refuse to see the obvious and continue to place blame at the wrong doorstep, you aren't who I thought you were anyway.

So happy trails, Homer.

There have been no new revelations. Even the hearings being held today offer nothing censurable. The wishful thinking of whiny Republicans who couldn’t get what they wanted at the ballot box. Is anything registering?

That's more your thing. Anyone who can't admit they were lied to by those in power for political gain and covering up the deaths of four Americans on the anniversary of 9/11 to win a reelection probably pounds sand by the bucketful.

You have no ability to do anything else - especially question serious breaches of trust.

Don't lose your shovel.

For someone like Homer to say I'm sick in the head just because I'm demanding accountability on the part of those in power who had the most to gain by a coverup only proves I'm in the right.

I'm getting sick and tired of liars and liars who believe and defend liars.

<quoted text> Yes, the 'funding cuts' had as much to do with the 'events surrounding the attack' as al-Qaeda did. Wasn't that Hillary Clinton's whole point, none of us knows for sure who or what was responsible for the attacks , but we are all wasting time quibbling over who's fault it was when we ought to be pursuing leads on finding the attackers,successfully convicting them and putting them in prison for a long time (just as Bill Clinton did after the 1993 truck bombing of the basement garages at the WTC .)She also went on to say that we ought to be working together to make sure embassy attacks like those in Benghazi never happen again . Fighting with each other over who's at fault was exactly Osama bin Laden's plan--get the Americans to fight among themselves and half the battle is won.
The Magic Negro's ineptness, indifference and love of Golf and Islam had more to do with it than any perceived funding cuts.

Blame it on Bush? Reagan? Nixon?

This look very republican.......
January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.
June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.
October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.
February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.
May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.
July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.
December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.
March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers.(I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)
September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.
January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.
March 18, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.
July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.
September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.
Now do some research and post all the random acts of violence on embassies and everywhere else in the world since January 2009 to the present - or eve go back to the 1980s if that's what makes you happy.

That is not the issue.

Crime in Italy.

The typical rebate from insurance is more like $20 or $30, mostly to the employer who paid the premium.

But the suckers think they're getting something.
