Gaza war seems to have potential for loss on both sides. Israel air port closed. After the war they will live side by side with increased hatred.
Balkanization of the region. We have no troops in Iraq...except the advisors the the news media ignores. ISIS irritating everyone.
Sad situation

In December 1942, the United States, Great Britain, and ten other Allied governments issued a declaration denouncing Nazi Germany's intention to murder the Jews of Europe. The declaration warned Nazi Germany that it would be held responsible for these crimes.
During the era of the Holocaust, the New York Times, the nation's leading newspaper, generally deemphasized the murder of the Jews in its news coverage.
As the magnitude of anti-Jewish violence increased in 1939-1941, many American newspapers ran descriptions of German shooting operations. The ethnic identity of the victims was not always made clear even though some reports described German mass murder operations with the word "extermination."
The New York Times reported on the operations of the killing center in Chelmno, but the article appeared on page six of the newspaper.
Even though they covered the December 1942 statement of the Allies condemning the mass murder of European Jews on its front page, it placed coverage of the more specific information released on page ten, significantly minimizing its importance.

Apparently, some things never change. The bias of the New York Times, for example.
Actually nitwit the New York Times was and in many ways still is a conservative paper. You seem to forget that the isolationists that resisted any involvement in the war in Europe were conservatives like Prescott Bush who did business with the Third Reich.
The New York Times was also one of the foremost newspapers to beat the drum for the war in Iraq and its main reporter on this issue was Judith Miller who was played like a cello by various Ahmed Chalabi and his band of fabricators. Lying exile grifter Ahmad Chalabi fed her the worst of the nonsense designed to push America into toppling Saddam Hussein (and giving Iraq to him), and she pushed that nonsense into the newspaper of record. She got everything wrong, and for some insane reason, she remained employed at the Times until 2005, when she negotiated her separation from her longtime professional home.
The Times also published the lies told by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. When the falsity of these allegations came to light the Times buried their retraction deep inside the paper.

TEL AVIV — Secretary of State John Kerry made a surprise visit to Israel on Wednesday, as he pressed his effort to forge a cease-fire to bring a halt to the bitter fighting in the Gaza Strip.
Mr. Kerry’s plane touched down at Ben-Gurion International Airport just a day after the United States Federal Aviation Administration suspended American civilian flights to Israel.
Mr. Kerry will visit Jerusalem and the West Bank and is scheduled to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel; Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority; and Ban Ki-moon, secretary general of the United Nations.
The F.A.A. action was taken after a Hamas rocket fell about a mile from the airport, leading to what the agency called “a potentially hazardous situation created by the armed conflict in Israel and Gaza.”
HOW COME THEY DID NOT FLY TO GAZA AIRORT AND HAVE A
MEETING WITH HAMAS ?????
http://www.gazaairport.com/
Kerry and Obama only talk to to Hamas through a third party of terrorists, like the PA. That way they look like they don't support Hamas. Most democrats in the United States buy into the foolishness.

An assignation occurred at 10AM on a north side main highway. Media in chicago refuses to cover. Oh oh because gangs aren't supposed to be on the north side suburbs. This is what happens when you say it is GRAS. No police coverage and those illegals start fighting with the negroes.

Republican Victory Turns Into Defeat as Second Court Rules Obamacare Subsidies Are Legal

The Halbig case could destroy Obamacare. But it won't. The Supreme Court simply isn't going to rip insurance from tens of millions of people in order to teach Congress a lesson about grammar.

As Adrianna McIntyre explains, the Halbig case holds that Obamacare's subsidies are illegal in the 36 states where the federal government runs (or partly runs) the exchange. The plaintiffs rely on an unclearly worded sentence in the law to argue that Congress never intended to provide subsidies in federally-run exchanges and so the subsidies that are currently being provided in those 36 states are illegal and need to stop immediately.

This is plainly ridiculous. The point of Obamacare is to subsidize insurance for those who can't afford it. The point of the federal exchanges is to make sure the law works even in states that can't or won't set up an exchange.

The Affordable Care Act took a potentially serious hit today when the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a rule that extended the law’s health-care subsidies to residents of the three-dozen states where the federal government runs a health insurance exchange.

But the fact that another court of appeals upheld the same rule on the same day shows that the legal issue is very thorny and will very likely be ultimately resolved by the Supreme Court. And the administration probably will come out ahead in the end.

the squeaky wheel gets the grease...

'...Of 34,557 adults ages 18 and older, the survey reported, 1.6 percent said they were gay or lesbian. Some critics say the numbers are low, but they fall in the range of other surveys. In the new survey, however, only 0.7 percent of respondents described themselves as bisexual...'

You might be tempted -- particularly if you are a Republican -- to see today's D.C. federal appeals court ruling invalidating subsidies for people buying insurance in the federal marketplace under Obamacare as a major moment in the political path of the law. You also might be tempted -- particularly if you are Democrat -- to see today's 4th District Court of Appeals decision that the subsidies were ok as a major moment in the political path of the law.

Don't do it.

While these decisions could have major policy implications for President Obama's signature legislative accomplishment, there is virtually no chance that either one will have any near or even medium term impact on the politics surrounding Obamacare.

The Obama administration caught a glimpse of the worst-case scenario for the president's signature health care law on Tuesday in a ruling by a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.

The ruling will be appealed, but even if it ends up being upheld, policy experts told TPM that it might be fairly easy for the administration to craft a workaround to keep a key piece of the law from falling apart.
