I never said ground troops, those are your extremist views of my beliefs. Somewhere between there and drawing a red line you don't have the balls to enforce would be good.<quoted text>
IRS has issues, but not the ones Issa went after. His main focus was tying the blame to the POTUS and WH - did not happen. Also, did not fix the real issues. That is what you should be angry about. Keep in mind, the issues are no different than what is found in private cos.
Benghazi, Chris Stevens turned down more security TWICE. He met with people in an unsecure location. Asked for help too late for action. The Chief military officers in the region said that they could NOT get to Benghazi in time to help the night of the attack. What more do you want? They feel that they got the guy who orchestrated the attack. Someone, who was there the night of the attack, stated that he heard it was about the video. The guy in custody said the same thing at first and then changed his story. Just look at all the people killed under Reagan and W. before you go after the Dems.
Syria, you want to send ground troops into this civil war???
Iran, you want to send ground troops????
Israel, you want to send ground troops???
Ukraine, you want to send ground troops???
The real issue in these areas are EXTREMISTS; not the majority of people in those countries.
In the past, the Repub POTUS would send troops and/or heavy artillery. What did it get us; other countries dependent on the US to send troops and foot the bill to rebuild other countries.
O wants to hit them in their wallet (heavy sanctions). After all, isn't that what all these wars are mostly about, MONEY?
O works circles around W. O is taking and keeping the US out of expensive ground wars! O is trying to get more revenue to create good jobs to fix our infrastructure by getting back the tax cuts to the 1%(haven't you heard, Reagan and W's plan DID NOT WORK). Are you like Cheney, use all the taxpayer money on other people's wars? War is NOT a job creator, or should not be!!!!

To clear things up for you, his cattle was on citizens of the USA's land. The man did NOT PAY his bill. The man tried to pay Nevada the money; rather than the Federal Gov't.
Are you for or against welfare for the cheaters? In my opinion, by not paying his bill, he is no different than welfare cheaters; except that he got away with a lot more money. You in favor of that?
Bundy and his extremist friends need to go to JAIL! They broke the law; plain and simple.
#2938 Jul 20, 2014
Then please state your plan.
GOP are criticizing on all levels, but where is the better solution?
The issue with Syria, is that it is a CIVIL WAR; you want a piece of that? Chemicals were turned over to be destroyed. Isn't that better than the US sending in troops or getting involved? What exactly would you have done different?
O doesn't want to involve the US in another war with no exit plan; like W. did. He does not want to give too many weapons to countries that will then turn on the US with them; like Reagan did. See a pattern yet?
Everyone getting in on the sanctions WILL make a huge difference!
#2939 Jul 20, 2014
Are you in favor of cutting taxes for corporations while increasing the sales tax rate for taxpayers?
Just look around you at your sales tax rate and see who is in charge, Dem or Repub.

Bundy DID pay his fees to the LOCAL government, like his LOCAL government told him to do.
The federal government, federal government entities, like BLM & IRS (and many others), are totally out of control. They are bullying the citizens of the US, and the American people NEED to stand up and say "hell no". There are ARMED GUARDS in IRS & Social Security offices. Right here, in little old Natchitoches, there is an armed guard posted in the lobby of the Social Security office. There are security cameras everywhere, with employees escorted to and from their vehicles, in the special "employee only" parking lot, by an armed guard. No wonder the employees there feel very comfortable treating people who come in like crap, being assholes to people who are coming there for help. They have an armed guard enabling them!

Everything you need to know about the long fight between Cliven Bundy and the federal government
This WP recount does not support your post. Where did you get your info, FOX NEWS?
Seems like you people want to aim your guns before following the law (go back to the days of the Wild Wild West). These people should have gone through the legal system for change; not the extremist route.
According to the article, even Bundy's neighbors DID NOT agree with him. The GOP, who ran to him, ran from him when his racist rants were aired. How do you feel about that?
#2942 Jul 20, 2014
I feel fine about it. I don't even think he's(Bundy)a racist. I just think his statement was ignorant. I'm so sick of the race thing. I could Puke. I'm called racist when I point out the low scores in the schools. They are schools like parks. F school 99% black. It is the lowest scoring school in the state. Natchitoches is predominately black and unless your student goes to st Mary's lab or magnet. Predominantly white then they score near the bottom. It's not racist to say that. It is factual. To hell with the race card it's getting old. I'm sick of it. You use the word exttremist a lot. That is what I would call you. Your hatred and extreme views of fox news really cross the line. I know you watch one of the ding dong far left news broadcast It is so obvious. What I can't believe is that you think Obama is a good or even decent leader, when he is just so inept and out of touch. Let's just hope we can live through the end of his disasterous time in office and get a real leader in the white house to try to salvage what they can. He can run all over the world then giving his little talks. That quite frankly doesn't draw much of a crowd any more.

The man definitely came from a different day and time, no doubt. However, even though his language may not have been all nice and PC, he made a valid point. Are poor blacks, or any poor people for that matter, any less a "slave" than what slavery used to be? Just nowadays they are "slaves" to the government. Do government programs actually function to help poor people, or control them? That's the point he was making. I listened to the entire interview, did you? Or did you just listen to Huffington Post sound bites? These programs aren't there to actually help people, but to control them. I won't go into great detail, but one example: There are strict guidelines on income, whereby under that certain number, the applicant gets 100% benefits. Reach that number or go $1 over, the applicant gets $0, 0%, nothing at all. Any system of government assistance aiming to actually help people would have a graduated qualification and benefit system.

If by lowering taxes on the 1% would have created lots and lots of good jobs, we would NOT be having this issue. There would be NO NEED FOR so many Gov't programs for the POOR. SS and Medicare would be secure and all working people would have health insurance through their employer. That is what Reagan claimed would happen. HE WAS WRONG and stupid to listen to the "trickle down economics" theory. He should have been man enough to admit it when he saw he had to raise taxes because it was NOT WORKING!
The tax savings went in the 1%'s pocket and the good middle class jobs w/benefits went to China and 3rd world countries.
Before Reagan (90% tax on investment income), employers paid their workers before they gave the money in taxes to the Gov't. That is why gas, food, healthcare... was so cheap by today's standards!
Bundy, in my opinion, is a greedy racist pig. He should know better. I think he just doesn't want to pay his bills. I would hope that Christians DON'T feel as he does about God's children.
In a civilized society, you follow legal procedures to change things; not pick up a gun. How would you feel if everyone who felt slighted by the Federal Gov't would pick up a gun; we would have an out of control civil war like in Syria, Egypt, Ukraine... You want that?
Bundy and friends should be prosecuted, punished and fined!

In my opinion, the main issue with school/education is that the students, by 9th grade, are NOT being educated in the area of their vocation interest.
Saw this reward system:
For today's WiFi password do the following:
Clean your room
Clean the bathroom
Wash you clothes
I bet all of the above was completed in no time flat!
This is the system we should use in schools with young children to get them use to applying themselves and then, through aptitude tests, train them for their future jobs. So even if they quit before graduation, they are trained for a JOB!
Keep in mind, for a paycheck we are required to perform certain duties (if we don't work in the family business)- same thing - reward incentive.
#2947 Jul 21, 2014
Didn't Reagan go after the "welfare queens"?
Why not the deadbeat dads?
It took two to make those babies then both should be responsible for their care, right?
Birth control will reduce abortions! Hobby Lobby is wrong!!! What Hobby Lobby did only hurt their poor working employees, right?
If you cannot show that you can support the baby on your own (and parents will NOT adopt), then babies go to a couple who can pay for the care through adoption straight from the hospital. Take away the reward for having babies for welfare checks. IT IS JUST NOT GOOD FOR BABIES and isn't that whose well being we should be concerned with?

Speaking of deportation:
The Obama administration "manipulated deportation data to make it appear that the Border Patrol was deporting more illegal immigrants than the Bush administration."
The charts say otherwise.
#2949 Jul 21, 2014
It seems these are some of the exact same issue's, my parents complained about when I 10 years old.
#2950 Jul 21, 2014
Disappointing (but not surprising) news about LW's hero, "the great and mighty O":
And unbelievably, it's from the liberal of all liberal places, Politix.
One of LW's favorite topics, Medicare, and O's manipulations and machinations of it prior to the 2012 election.
#2951 Jul 21, 2014
The charts say "no breakdown available prior to 2008".
#2952 Jul 21, 2014
"Manipulate deportation data" = "change in deportation procedures"
#2953 Jul 21, 2014
"The morning after" & "the week after" pills ARE abortion pills. How can you say they "reduce abortions"? Hobby Lobby is right, and within their rights to NOT pay for them.
#2954 Jul 21, 2014
Are you telling me you think all children should be evaluated for the government to decide what job they should have then they can train them for it. That is the stupidest thing Ive ever heard in my life. I can hear it now. " sorry honey. I know you wanted to be a dentist but look right here on this paper, the government says you should work at a fast food chain ". Omg children are individuals You can't treat them as a herd of cattle. We will have no doctors ,lawyers in Louisiana. Not with our low test scores. Guess all kids in this state will qualify for fast food chains. Loggers or supermarket workers. Lol. You must not have children. You need to get over yourself. Stop acting like a child with a crush over this community organizer they have in the white house he is so far in over his head. He hasn't a clue Name a country we have better relations with since o took office. Tell me one thing you think your idol o has done wrong in his presidency. Be honest I'm beginning to worry about your mental health with this over the top obsession you have with (OBLAMEY). That's all he does is blame. He's too much of an ego maniac to even admit to one mistake.
#2955 Jul 21, 2014
Yeah, sounds a lot like the Soviet Union, doesn't it? "This is the job you will do, comrade". This guy is a joke, at best.
#2956 Jul 22, 2014
You do know ,John Boehner authored no child left behind.The period of time between Reagan,Bush,Clinton,Bush,they dismantled and sold this country off piece by piece .Why don't you talk more about the "do nothing congress ,or some of the laws passed down by the supreme court .You know there's more to our government then just a man on top .
