Not exactly, an email sent on July 31 2011 by John Boehner shows he is the one that came up with the sequester idea. Congress passed sequestration before obama signed it, and the whole self-defeating exercise was carried out in response to Tea Party Republicans’ insistence that we play chicken with the debt ceiling. In typical fashion, as the GOPer leader ship has done so many, many times before, it’s the straw-man tactic at its height of hypocrisy!!
fox News is never wrong. This Democratic Senator backs Fox News. http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2013/02...

Sequestration?!
GOPers really do not know when to quit! Even though it was John Boehner who convinced his republican colleges to vote for it he’s been busy blaming Obama calling it “Obamaquester” just how f-ing stupid do they think we are??

Why thank you francis, I thought you would NEVER ask (or axe if you prefer)...how effing stupid...hmmmm, well ol boy, let me put it this way...well, besides that opinion = fact that you are the only one I know that was ever fired from a cushy 6 figure gig as chief inspector at the M & M factory for throwing away all the W's, and the opinion = fact that you are the only person I know who was kicked out of the IRA for burning your lips on the exhaust pipe trying to blow up a bus...but to be straight with you, honestly, I think = fact that if you scored one more IQ point you would equal the intelligence of a pot plant...
HEY...speaking of stupid,,,did you hear about the car bombs in Demascus that murdered 50 muslim women and children today? I don't know about you...but I truly believe that if we can get Obumble and the Dems to ban car bombs in Demascus and force anyone owning a car bomb to register it each year...we could avoid such tragedies in the future...

Answer...yes, to big to slay so shut up, load the banana clips and lock and load, baybee...

And with the thousands of fire regulations in place fire departments still responded to 384,000 home fires in the United States, which claimed the lives of 2,640 people (not including firefighters) and injured another 13,350, not including firefighters...perhaps a ban on fires that hurt people should be the solution, yes?

Gee Francis...speaking of effing stupid...something tells me these puppies couldn' find the fire exits...regulations really are the effective tool...

Downer of the day: A fire last night at a strip mall in Miami killed 30 puppies, reports the Miami Herald. The pups died of smoke inhalation—all were French and English bulldogs, breeds known for having respiratory trouble. Firefighters were able to rescue a handful, but the owner of Beverly Hills Puppies says most of those in the store died, reports WSVN-TV. The bulldogs sell for $2,000 apiece. No word yet on what caused the fire.

Ban fire exit regulations that are not pet friendly now! And BAN fires at malls with pet stores...

One simple question...WHY do I need to be careful what I say about your self professed prophets? Are you careful what you say when speaking of matters that may be sensitive to me? If I don't like your hatred writing of jews and Israelites do I have the right to WARN YOU? Of course NOT...If I don't like what you have to say about Hindus does that give me right over you to make you quit saying how you truly feel? ABsolutely not...Besides, what has Muhammid done to earn the right not to be talked? He was illiterate, he forced a nine year old into marraige, he led a life of killing and forced submissions...yet because you have been brainwashed into accepting without question his merits of prophetism...that means that I cannot talk about him? There is an old saying in Tinyearls part of the country...it goes something like this.....FFFUUUUUHHHHHGggetta Boudit! Should I translate this for you my dear esteemed Comrade MUQ?
There is only "one sentence in your entire post"...which is worth answering.

Where is your "evidence" that our prophet "forced Lady Aiyesha to marry him".... do not present your assumptions.

Where is your proof? Just think you are standing in a court of law and you lay this charge on our prophet.

Answer it, Comrade AB.

In reality you are no Comrade. All your pretensions are only skin deep.

Let us hear your "proofs" that prophet "forced" lady Aiyesha to marry her.

Aisha was the daughter of Muhammad's close friend Abu Bakr, was she not? She was betrothed with ABsolutely no say in the matter to Jubayr ibn Mut'im,was she not? When Khawlah bint Hakim suggested that Muhammad marry Aisha after the death of Muhammad's first wife Khadija, the previous agreement regarding marriage of Aisha with ibn Mut'im was put aside by common consent...Would you care to guess what say Jubayr had in this "common consent" agreement, COMRADE MUQ? I am sure it probably went something like this...

Muhammad: I want your promised bride for my self pleasures...

Jubayr: ABsolutely not...she has been promised to me!...

Muhammad: I KILL YOU! And then your father and then your mother...

Jubayr: So what time should I deliver her to you?

Comrade MUQ, it is a given that Aisha was five or six years old when betrothed to Muhammad and that she stayed in her parents' home until the age of nine when the marriage was consummated with Muhammad, then 53, in Medina.
What about this stroy is false so far, my esteemed comrade?

After the "consummation" of NINE YEAR OLD Aisha to 53 YEAR OLD Muhammad...she and Sawda, were given apartments adjoined to the Al-Masjid al-Nabawi mosque...TRUE OR FALSE Comrade MUQ?

I am sure that in your world it is not considered "FORCE" to make your sister marry who ever your father decides she should be married to..but over here in God's country we believe that both male and female should have the same choices...got it COMRADE MUQ?

So when are we going to discuss the Ayatollah Khomeini?

...no more treating women like dogs...

Once again, rape and murder has India outraged—this time the killing of three young sisters, aged 7, 9, and 11, reports the Guardian (the AP corrects the age of the youngest girl). The three girls, who lived in a remote central India village in Maharashtra province, went missing on Feb. 14 on their way home from school. Police found the girls' bodies in an old well two days later and called their deaths "accidental." Only after angry villagers blocked a national highway on Wednesday did state officials take notice.

The head of the local police station has been suspended and district police have taken over the investigation, putting 30 officers on the case. "We've got some strong, solid indications and we're working very hard," says the female superintendent. The government offered 1 million rupees ($18,500) in compensation to the girls' mother, a widow and laborer, but it only angered her. "No amount of money is going to bring my girls back," she says. "I appeal to the government to catch the culprits early and hang them."

Times....they are a'changing in your former nation, eh Comrade MUQ

Who Lost the World?

The Curious Case of How Libya Became an Election Issue

By Ira Chernus

October 30, 2012 "Information Clearing House" - Who lost Libya? Indeed, who lost the entire Middle East? Those are the questions lurking behind the endless stream of headlines about “Benghazi-gate.” Here’s the question we should really ask, though: How did a tragic but isolated incident at a U.S. consulate, in a place few Americans had ever heard of, get blown up into a pivotal issue in a too-close-to-call presidential contest?

My short answer: the enduring power of a foreign policy myth that will not die, the decades-old idea that America has an inalienable right to “own” the world and control every place in it. I mean, you can’t lose what you never had.

This campaign season teaches us how little has changed since the early Cold War days when Republican stalwarts screamed,“Who lost China?” More than six decades later, it’s still surprisingly easy to fill the political air with anxiety by charging that we’ve “lost” a country or, worse yet, a whole region that we were somehow supposed to “have.”

The “Who lost...?” formula is something like a magic trick. There’s no way to grasp how it works until you take your eyes away from those who are shouting alarms and look at what’s going on behind the scenes.
Who’s in Charge Here?

The curious case of the incident in Benghazi was full of surprises from the beginning. It was the rare pundit who didn’t assure us that voters wouldn’t care a whit about foreign affairs this year. It was all going to be “the economy, stupid,” 24/7. And if foreign issues did create a brief stir, surely the questions would be about Afghanistan, Pakistan, or China.

Yet for weeks, the deaths of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans became the rallying cry of the campaign to unseat Barack Obama. What made this even more surprising: when news of the tragedy first broke, it appeared to be stillborn as a political issue.

The day after the attack on the consulate, as the news about the killings was just coming out, Mitt Romney rushed to blast his opponent:“American leadership is necessary to ensure that events in the region don’t spin out of control.” A president must show “resolve in our might” and a readiness to use “overwhelming force.” Barack Obama had failed on all these counts, Romney charged, and the deaths in Benghazi proved it.

The Republican presidential candidate was duly blasted in return for “politicizing” the incident. It seemed like almost everyone chimed in critically. Even longtime Republican stalwart Ed Rogers wrote that “Romney stumbled,” while “the president said the right things and had the right tone.”

Romney never retracted anything he said on that first day -- and somehow the same words, once scorned as unfitting and “unpresidential,” were mysteriously transformed into powerful arguments against reelecting the incumbent. A month later, a new story dominated the headlines: Romney’s criticisms on Libya were now said to be hitting the target, changing the dynamic, playing a major role in his campaign’s resurgence.

This change of tune surely reflected in part the media’s primal need for a close presidential contest to keep the public’s interest. At the time of the Libyan incident it was generally agreed that Obama was beginning to pull ahead in the race, potentially decisively, and anything that might boost Romney’s chance was undoubtedly welcome on an editor’s desk.

No matter how hard editors try, though, some stories just don’t stick. But the Libya story stuck. It struck a chord somewhere in the hearts and minds of a lot of Americans. You have to wonder why.

A big part of the answer lies in the power of the key words in Romney’s first statement:“might” and “control.” His strategists grasped a fundamental truth of American politics: The public has an endless appetite for gripping stories about challenges to America’s global might and its right to control the world. So they doubled down and sent their man out to tell the story again.

And you have "glossed over" the hundreds of rape and murders that take place in India "regularly" (and mostly committed by Hindus and Sikhs and People of other clan)....and "stuck" on this case because the Criminal's name was Muslim?

Is that your idea of impartiality?

I am coming to think that you are a totally worthless person and your civility is only skin deep.

The same goes for your scholarship.

I think I have to terminate our correspondences, I did not expect that you are so biased.

It just amazes me how the climate of global terrorism has evolved in the past 2 decades - As well as how we perceive it...Used to be sly Europeans in finely tailored suits we were on the lookout for; reminds me of my own personal close call with terrorism.

In the late 80's I worked for Nagasaki Corp. in LA...When one Christmas eve our building was overrun by Euro-Terrorists during our holiday party - Led by a creep by the name of Hans Grueber...If it weren't for an out-of-place NYC cop I might not be here today. I shouldn't name names, so I will just say thank you J.M. Yippee-Kiyea.

Everything is fine... other than getting used to the time change.

Thank you for posting the article and also the link to the website. Fascinating...I thought Nasa was non existent but it seems they are still going strong.


It is amazing scientists can find out so much history by examining rock dust.The dust in the picture looked blue but the article said the picture was simulated or something?

Maybe someday scientists can piece it all together and paint a picture of Mars 4 billion years ago for all to see.
Though for now I will be content to watch the clouds.

Matthew 16:13-20


Peter Declares That Jesus Is the Messiah

13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples,“Who do people say the Son of Man is?”

14 They replied,“Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 “But what about you?” he asked.“Who do you say I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered,“You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus replied,“Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter,[a] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[b] will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be[c] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[d] loosed in heaven.” 20 Then he ordered his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.
