What don't you understand about "extremists"? In your little mind, are all Christians responsible for the abuse of children by Catholic Priest? Are all Jews responsible for the murder of Rachel Corrie and the abuses against the Palestinians? Muslims are not the enemy. Extremism is.
Rachel Corrie? You idiot! You are equating an accidental death for which Rachel Corrie herself was responsible for with the planned murder of 3,000 people in the Trade Tower 911 event?

Galt didn't say "all" Muslims are extremists, moron.

But all of the extremists who participated in 911 were Muslims though.

Prosecutors are seeking a court order to force a teenager charged in a “sexting” case to allow police to photograph his erect penis – even if that means injecting him with drugs to stimulate an erection.
The 17-year-old Manassas, Virginia, boy is accused of sending sexually explicit video to his minor girlfriend, reported the Washington Post.
The teen faces two felony charges, possession of child pornography and manufacturing child pornography, and faces possible incarceration until he’s 21 years old and the possible lifetime inclusion on the state’s sex offender database.
The teen’s 15-year-old girlfriend — who has not been charged — sent photos of herself to the 17-year-old, who then sent video that showed his erect penis, said the teen’s defense attorney

There Was No Stand Down Order: The Release of the Benghazi Transcripts Busts Republicans
Republican Benghazi-gasms appear to be shriveling under the sunshine of transparency.
Wednesday evening, Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services, decided to release the transcripts of interviews of nine military personnel conducted between January and April of this year regarding the attacks in Benghazi. McKeon has been saying for a while now that he’s satisfied with the military’s response to the Benghazi attack, but it seems no one in his party is listening to his attempt to keep them from attacking our servicemembers.
Darrell Issa (R-CA) earned himself Four Pinocchios for claiming that Secretary Hillary Clinton ordered former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to “stand down” during the Benghazi attacks and now Democrats are demanding an apology.
Upon the release of the transcripts* this evening, Democrats charge that they prove that there was no stand down order and actually, significant military assets were deployed on the night of the attacks that tragically killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods. Furthermore,“Republicans’ bankrupt priorities are on full display in this farce: they are now wasting more taxpayer funds per day than we spend on either the Veterans Affairs Committee or the Intelligence Committee.”

GROWTH
Why jobs are scarce, wages low and CD rates depressed
Peter Morici
By Peter MoriciPublished July 10, 2014FoxNews.com
AP
Americans keep hoping for a robust recovery -- one that delivers better paying jobs and decent returns on retirement savings. Changes in technology and the economy may require that never happens, and government efforts to improve conditions often multiply the misery.
In 1908, Henry Ford had a great idea -- the Model T -- and a novel understanding of mass production— but needed huge amounts of capital to build factories, establish dealers to sell and service mass-produced cars, and a large corps of managers and assembly workers.
His success inspired competitors and whole new industries making everything from agricultural implements to zippers. For three generations, those created enormous demand for capital and jobs for millions in manufacturing and supporting services.
In the closing decades of the 20th century, rapidly-advancing digital technologies helped those industries use factories more efficiently and slash the numbers of managers and assembly workers.
Most digital companies never had quite the same appetite for capital and workers.
Google was founded with $100,000 in seed capital in 1998, and $25 million in funding a year later. Within five years, its search engine was available to virtually every computer user around the world, and its brand was more ubiquitous than Coca Cola.
Google’s outstanding stock is worth about $370 billion -- more than five times Ford -- and it has accomplished this remarkable wealth creation on a relatively small initial investment. Today it has about 50,000 high-skilled employees—that’s less than one-fourth of the Ford workforce, which has been significantly downsized in recent decades.
Older enterprises like Ford and younger ones like Google that form the manufacturing and technology economy of the 21st century need more tech-savvy workers than universities and community colleges provide. However, even if enough liberal arts and business programs could retool to produce all the science, math, technology and engineering graduates needed, the remaining programs would still produce many more non-STEM graduates than the economy could absorb.
Similarly innovators often don’t need a lot of money to create valuable new enterprises or expand established businesses. Consider that many young people create profitable apps and marketing platforms on their laptops, and major corporations are flush with billions in cash and too few opportunities to deploy it.
Consequently, established companies and individual investors bid up prices for young enterprises, whose owners wish to cash in on their initial success, and pay astronomical sums for the initial public offerings of companies like Facebook. They bid up prices for stocks, bonds, and collectables, and drive down yields on dividend-paying stocks and interest rates on bonds and CDs.
To generate enough jobs, the economy must create lots of service businesses beyond the ecosystems of manufacturing and technology -- everything from restaurants to retirement homes, but government regulations dictating wages, sick leave and health benefits drive many services offshore. That’s why credit card call centers and even some back office legal services are in Asia.
Those centers throw millions of less-skilled Americans out of work, slow economic growth, and further reduce college graduates’ wages and returns on savings and investments.
Too many subsidized loans to send 60 percent of high school graduates to college merely drives up tuition and worsens the glut of graduates and leave young people saddled with debt.

Since 2008, the Federal Reserve has pumped more than $3 trillion dollars into the economy with too few good results. It’s not responding to a shortage of capital but it is further driving up asset prices and pushing down the returns on saving and investing.
What most Americans won’t accept, and politicians lack courage to admit, is the government can’t broadly raise wages or spur growth by regulating prices, mandating health care benefits, over subsidizing education, and printing money but it can make most folks a lot worse off by trying.

Has Six Years of President Obama Turned Millennials Into a Bunch of Tea Partiers?
FacebookTwitter Share Email
By Mark Tapscott (Washington Examiner)

A new survey finds an explosion of conservative opinion among millennials and it looks like President Obama could be why it's happening.

Sixty-six percent of those surveyed say government is wasteful and inefficient. That compares to just 42 percent who said so in 2009 at the outset of the Obama era.

The Reason-Rupe survey of 2,000 millennials is being released today. Here are some of the major findings:

* 73 percent of millennials favor allowing private accounts for Social Security; 51 percent favor private accounts even it means cutting Social Security benefits for current and future retirees because 53 percent of millennials say Social Security is unlikely to exist when they retire.

* 64 percent of millennials say cutting government spending by 5 percent would help the economy.

Tyranny: Man Imprisoned for Collecting Rainwater on his Own Land
July 9, 2014 By Todd Cefaratti
ZHarrington
On Wednesday, a man entered a jail cell in Oregon to pay his supposed debt to society. The man’s crime? He collected rainwater on his own land.
Yes-that’s right; an Oregon man is serving a jail sentence for having had the audacity to collect rainwater on his land. This is what our government has become.
For years, Gary Harrington has battled with the Oregon Water Resources Department over reservoirs on his land that collected rainwater. The water officials claim that Harrington is violating a 1925 law by diverting water from the Big Butte River.
Harrington claims that he has done nothing of the sort and has just collected rainwater.
Harrington began his sentence on Wednesday and will be out in 30 days. He incurred a fine of $1500, was found guilty of nine misdemeanors, and sentenced to serve 30 days in jail.
When Harrington arrived at the jail, he was greeted by several people showing support for the man and he offered a few words of encouragement, saying,“I’m sacrificing my liberty so we can stand up as a country and stand for our liberty.”
In a recent interview, Harrington stated about the government,
“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies.”
“We as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.
Is this what our government has become? Is this a service to the people?
Like the Bundy ranch standoff, people may view this case and conclude different levels of wrongdoing by Harrington. I believe that the government’s position is ridiculous just as I believe the government’s position with regards to the Bundy situation was ridiculous- but others may disagree.
What we should all be able to agree upon, however, is that in both instances, the government’s reaction was wholly inappropriate. A jail sentence and a criminal record that will fall Harrington forever is not the solution to a violation as minor as collecting rainwater on one’s land.
That's illegal in many jurisdictions Flacko__maybe even yours.

How large were the reservoirs?

MEXICO CITY —
Automakers Daimler and Renault-Nissan say they will build a $1.36 billion plant to manufacture Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz brand compact vehicles.
The companies announced Friday that construction on the plant would begin in 2015 in the northern state of Aguascalientes.
They called it the most ambitious project to date for the joint venture the firms launched in 2010. They said it would produce as many as 300,000 cars a year, with Infiniti production beginning in 2017 and Mercedes in 2018.
The plant is expected to employ 5,700 people
Automakers are increasingly moving car manufacturing to Mexico because of its access to the U.S., low labor costs and free-trade deals with more than 30 countries.
so, what does the US need to do to make it more attractive to locate such plants in the US????.....
