Hawks Call for Cuts to Israel Military Aid
As Israel ramps up its ground invasion and bombing campaign against Gaza, one might think that the Jewish state’s fiercest defenders here in the United States would be resolutely holding the line against any suggestion of reducing support to the IDF. Instead, Eli Lake reported this morning, many of Israel’s most prominent hawkish supporters are increasingly open to the idea of reducing or eliminating the billions of dollars in military aid that the United States provides Israel every year.
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/hawks-...
Elliott Abrams, the former George W. Bush deputy national security adviser and “leading pro-Israel writer and policy analyst” told Lake,“My view is over time it would be healthy for the relationship if the aid diminished. Israel should be less dependent on American financial assistance and should become the kind of ally that we have in Australia, Canada or the United Kingdom, an intimate military relationship and alliance, but no military aid.”
Meanwhile, Egypt and Saudi Arabia tell Israel to keep killing the terrorists.
Who are you going to listen to? Some policy wank here that I'm sure you called an idiot when Bush was in office, or the people that have to deal with Hamas terrorists every day?

By the way, we're sorry the Arabs in Egypt threw your allies out on their asses. Arabs don't like Obama, either. Who on this planet likes Obama?
What do you think about the government of Egypt having warrants out for the arrest of Hillary and Obama?

Nothing this president could do would be bad enough in your eyes in spite of all the broken promises and lack of leadership and our nation being more vulnerable now than when he took office. True or false?

Please acknowledge you understand this before taking another potshot in the dark.
If the media cared about protecting you from Obama's abuse of power as much as they cared about Nixon's, Obama would have already read his resignation on television too.
Please acknowledge you understand this before responding.

That's your claim.

Perhaps you can elucidate with sources instead of giving your opinions and demanding others do things your way.

<quoted text>Well let's see... one of McConnell's first statements when Obama got in was to block him.
I think I see the problem.......
Wrong!!!

McConnell made his remarks in an interview that appeared in the National Journal on Oct. 23, 2010 — nearly two years after Obama was elected president. The interview took place on the eve the of the midterm elections.

Generally, Democrats suggest that McConnell believed that no problem is bigger than getting rid of Obama, but it is clear that he is speaking in a political context — that the goals of Republicans could not be achieved unless Obama is defeated in his race for reelection. A case in point: the health care law could not be overturned unless Obama is defeated.

Moreover, McConnell goes on to say that he does “not want the president to fail” and cooperation was possible “if he’s willing to meet us halfway on some of the biggest issues.” McConnell in fact cited an extension of the Bush tax cuts — and Obama did strike such a deal shortly after the midterm elections.

There is no doubt that McConnell said he wanted to make Obama a one-term president. But he did not say it at the start of Obama’s term; instead, he made his comments at the midpoint, after Obama had enacted many of his preferred policies.

Antarctic ice cores show us that the concentration of CO2 was stable over the last millennium until the early 19th century.

"Other measurements (e.g. isotopic data) confirm that the increase must be due to emissions of CO2 from fossil fuel usage and deforestation"

"Isotope" is the relative concentration of differring atomic masses for the same element, moron. Carbon released from a bar b q pit will have the same relative concentration of isotopes as a cow fart.
You cannot tell the origin of something like a combination of Carbon and Oxygen from it's isotopic distribution.

the 'rational' line.
The current operation grew out of the government’s deception about who was responsible for the kidnapping of the three Israelis, but even if the original claim had been entirely true it wouldn’t have warranted the massive overkill and collective punishment that have been going on for the last few weeks. Not only is the operation creating far greater evils than the ones it is supposed to remedy, but it is also difficult to identify what the purpose of the operation is. Waging war that inflicts disproportionate harm would be bad enough, but to wage a war that doesn’t seem to have any discernible strategic goal–or indeed any purpose besides raining devastation on a largely defenseless population–is inherently wrong. It’s not self-defense, and it makes a mockery of the idea of self-defense to claim otherwise.

it's called 'Science'.
Around 12,000 years ago, the last ice age ended and Earth experienced a warming phase. But while other epochs were defined solely by natural and geological phenomena, the Holocene has become the period of human influence on biosphere and climate.

By 1300 temperatures started to drop again, ushering in the 'Little Ice Age'. The direct sea route from Iceland to Greenland became impassable, due to the expansion of sea ice. From the 16th to 19th centuries, glaciers all over the world expanded.

The Western coast of Greenland began to submerge due to the increasing weight of ice sheets. The climate was too cold for satisfying crop yields, and famines struck Europe’s population.

From 950 to 1250, Earth experienced the 'Medieval Warm Period'. The Vikings started to emigrate to Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland. A severe drought caused the Maya civilization to collapse, but excellent weather in many other regions helped populations to grow.

Things changed abruptly in the 20th century as the planet began feeling the effects of the Industrial Revolution. Earth’s surface temperature rose on average by 0.7 degrees Celsius. The increase occurred in two periods—from approximately 1910 to 1944 and from 1978 to 1998.

Putting Mitt Romney's attacks on 'You didn't build that' to the Truth-O-Meter

In speeches and videos, the Romney campaign has repeatedly distorted Obama's words. By plucking two sentences out of context, Romney twists the president's remarks and ignores their real meaning.

The preceding sentences make clear that Obama was talking about the importance of government-provided infrastructure and education to the success of private businesses.

Romney also conveniently ignores Obama's clear summary of his message, that "the point is ... that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."

By leaving out the "individual initiative" reference, Romney and his supporters have misled viewers and given a false impression. For that, we rate the claim False.

keep up the 'good' work.
