<quoted text>You're blind to any business sense or political and economic understanding. How can Illinois be hostile to business if they let multinational corporate giant Caterpillar get away with not paying their taxes? Illinois' corporate tax rate is lower than Iowa, Pennsylvania and equal to Alaska(all Red States). Caterpillar is the world's largest maker of mining equipment. The Peoria, Illinois-based company also makes construction equipment, gas turbines and diesel engines, and railroad locomotives. At least, Pat Quinn isn't as hated by big business as Governor Walker of Wisconsin --Walker has to pass through ever larger angry crowds demanding his recall every morning outside the Illinois State House . Also, Multinational Caterpillar in Milwaukee isn't too happy there either. Does that mean that Wisconsin republican-governed welfare state is anti-business too? http://www.reuters.com/article/email/idUSBRE9...
Caterpillar's problem in Wisconsin is with a greedy union, not with Governor Walker.

Caterpillar could easily bail out of Peoria and Illinois. Politicians should recognize this and stop milking the golden goose.

Balance the budget by cutting social programs instead of raising taxes.

Liberals argue that Benghazi is not a Cover-Up, so either it shows total incompetence or total ineptness by Obama and his administration to deal with a Real Crisis in Real Time!!
Benghazi Crisis takes me back to that 2008 campaign ad “The Red Phone” its 3 a.m. in the morning. The phone rings there’s a world crisis who do you want to have answering the phone ‘Hillary or Obama’ today we can answer that question without any ambiguity…Neither!!

Wrong. The Democrat nominee in 2016 will be an Obama surrogate and the media will throw Hillary under the bus as directed by Obama.

Way to go there, Lincoln.

Maybe you and some of your liberal pals should seek help about your collective brain blockages and your unhealthy loyalty to liars, cheaters and thieves.

No, Republicans aren't perfect either. But you guys take the cake when it comes to being a poor judge of character and gullibility.

Democratic Congressman Refuses To Let Republicans Ignore GOP Security Budget Cuts In New Benghazi Hearing
In a heated exchange on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Lynch pointed out that Republicans voted against additional funding for embassy security when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requested it:
LYNCH: When Secretary Clinton and the State Department asked for additional funding for embassy security,[Republicans] all voted no. They all voted no.
WALLACE: We’re getting a little bit off track now. I understand there’s an issue about security. It’s a little bit off the track. I want to stay on course here –
LYNCH: No, this is the point. They’re complaining about a lack of security at the embassies after they voted against funding for security at the embassies. Is that not related?

Only problem...there is no embassy in benghazi.

<quoted text>Comparing FY 2011 actual funding versus the FY 2012 estimate, there appears to be a reduction in Worldwide Security Protection and Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance. But that reduction does not account for additional funding in FY 2012 from Overseas Contingency Operations funds amounting to $236 million for Worldwide Security Protection (p. 63) and $33 million for Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance (p. 467). As a result, total funds for Worldwide Security Protection for FY 2012 are estimated to be $94 million higher than in FY 2011, while Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance is estimated to be $61 million less than FY 2011. Together, there is a net increase.
In terms of people, the budget justification reported that Worldwide Security Protection had slightly fewer positions budgeted (1,777 in FY 2011 versus 1,707 in FY 2012) and Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance had the same number of positions budgeted (1,014 for both years).
In its budget request for FY 2013, the Administration requested significantly more funding for embassy security—mostly through the Overseas Contingency Operations budget—but retained the same number of positions, apparently on the assumption that security staffing was adequate. Regardless, that budget, even if approved in its entirety, would have entered into effect after the events in Libya.
It is tempting to look for a scapegoat for the tragic events in Libya. However, if one exists, the overall budget for embassy security is not it. Funding for that purpose has risen sharply over the past decade. Moreover, the State Department has considerable latitude in allocating security funds based on current events and intelligence on possible threats. Why that latitude was not applied in Libya deserves further scrutiny.
Numbers don't lie. And after all the Iraq war is over-right? didn't O'bama say that was going to save trillions?
http://blog.heritage.org/2012/10/11/libya-sec...
Here’s the short answer ’The Budget’ had nothing to do with Obama’s ineptness to deal with the crisis in Benghazi!!

They lied for political gain when the winds of opinion changed.

Obama supporters wasted a lot of everyone's money by electing an incompetent, unqualified community organizer in 2008, and then re-electing the same incompetent snakeoil salesman in 2012. You might as well run in 2016.

Megyn Kelly claimed on Thursday that the mainstream media issued a "collective yawn" about the Congressional hearings — a contention that drew scrutiny from some media-watchers.

Kelly quoted headlines from outlets like the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle and The Huffington Post which she felt underplayed the drama of the hearings.

"if you look at, sort of, across the mainstream media, it was a collective yawn," she said.

The Washington Post's Erik Wemple took the claim head-on in a Thursday blog post. Wemple—who has followed the Benghazi story very closely—noted that the hearings had been given top billing on the front pages of the New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal. These are probably the three most important and influential newspapers in the country, and they all had straightforward, non-dismissive headlines that Kelly did not cite, such as "In Riveting Account Of Benghazi Raid, Official Knocks Administration Response," and "Officials: Facts on Benghazi withheld."

In her segment, Kelly also criticized outlets for focusing on the Jodi Arias trial and the story of the three women kidnapped in Cleveland.

"When you look at what folks chose to concentrate on, they were much more interested in Jodi Arias and what happened in Cleveland," she said. "In neither case were four Americans killed in a terrorist attack on our country!"

Kelly failed to note that she was one of the anchors who turned their focus to Arias and Cleveland. On Thursday, Newsbusters rapped MSNBC's Chris Hayes over the knuckles for playing footage of Kelly updating viewers on both stories. The entire network also turned to Arias when she was declared guilty. Fox News even led the ratings with its Arias coverage.

The media's investigations into Benghazi continued on Friday morning, as ABC's Jon Karl published an exclusive story about the State Department's revisions of talking points. That would suggest that reporters are still looking into things.

Wemple wrote that Fox News was resorting to an old pattern:

Forgive Fox News for its analytical blindness. For years, the network has been shredding the mainstream media for ignoring its pet issues. It’s a mantra, a reflex response. So when contrary information pops up on street-corner newspaper boxes, on TV screens and on computer screens everywhere, we can excuse Fox News for not noticing. Give it a pass on this one.

That gives a boost to the announcement that Tesla Motors has become profitable and driving it's stock price up 19% to nearly $67 per share.
Whatever happened to the Consumer Reports that tested practical products for average consumers?

Their ratings for cars lost credibility when they started overweighting environmental and safety factors and underweighting performance and reliability.

But, if you want a Tesla, knock yourself out.
