<quoted text>Paul got his answer from the DOJ. He just doesn't like the answer.
No, he didn't have his answer 10 hours into the filibuster. It took 13 hours, weeks of direct questioning and a root canal to get the answer he wanted.
THIS is what he wanted {minus of course the first stupid first sentence where he pretends it's a new question}

"It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question:“Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?” The answer to that question is no.

Sincerely,

Eric H. Holder, Jr."

Betcha Barry was annoyed when he had to okay that little note You know Barry. The same Barry who was all holier than thou and squeamish about waterboading but isn't opposed to sending in a drone to blowing some American from Anytown, USA into the land of Kingdom Come..........

Well tell "Mr. They" that maybe it's because the left won't respond directly or with much detail to our comments, concerns and questions regarding this administrations actions, policies and end results.
Maybe instead of calling our comments "whiney" and "paranoid" and telling us it must be Fox News or Faux News{the overly used nickname which stopped being amusing ---> years ago but still gives fuel to your your Obama propaganda machine} that must be polluting our ability to think, you might actually stop playing dodge ball and get to the meat of some of these topics.
I have thrown a number of issues out for discussion and get nothing much back.

Here, address this one.

In the internal email, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official Charles Brown said he asked if he could try to spread out the sequester cuts in his region to minimize the impact, and he said he was told not to do anything that would lessen the dire impacts Congress had been warned of.

“We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’ So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be,” Mr. Brown, in the internal email, said his superiors told him.

Ditto for housing and sales being up. Wend your way through the smoke and mirrors and find out how they arrive at that simpleton's headline. The record highs of the stock market also has a story and I'm pretty confident the 3 million women who you care so much about who have fallen into the category of poverty under Obama, don't care much about Wall Street. They live on Main Street.
Your naivete is astounding.
It must be something to have to live with you. Your misanthropy is astounding.

Give me a break. You have no love for mankind, you just wish you didn't have to see anyone in pain. It makes you "uncomfortable" I had a brother-in-law who wouldn't go see his mother in the hospital because it made him uncomfortable. After she died he claimed he thought she was getting better. You soooo much remind me of that.

Did you maybe mean a different fable, or am I missing something?

Now, you're being pithy (p-i-s-s-y, pithy) so I doubt you'll deign to explain, but I fail to see how you can work a lesson about the value of hard work into/onto my post.

I think of the sequester as the Chicken Little tale.
Obama yells, " Om my gosh...the sky is falling, the sky is falling!" And when it doesn't fall, he MAKES it fall.

or Peter and the Wolf perhaps....... Obama maims his own sheep so people don't think he was lying.

Ho hum

Maybe that's his idea of transparency.
His lies are easy for some of us to see through.

Your Orwell comment reminds me of something.

I don't like country music.

However, I don't denigrate those who do like it.

And for those who do like country music, denigrate means put down.

Smile, Lyndi, things are improving.

You are correct about how I feel: I don't like to see people suffer.

But you don't know what I do to make things better.

How frustrating it must be for you and lisw to put up with inferior defective people intruding on your private chat board, Lyndi.

You claim people on the left don't answer your posts, but the truth is you are consistently very crude about shifting any conversation immediately back to what you want to talk about, working in a few cheap sound bytes and talking points, then whining foul when people don't play by your rules.

I reserve the right to point that out when you do it, and if you don't like that - even better.

Two essay questions.

1) Chavez is a widely viewed liberal hero. Did he ever give back the billion dollars plus he stole from his people before he croaked and if not, why not?

2a) You're Mr. Politically correct. Why is it Black Americans prefer to be recognized as African Americans and reference their continent of origin and though you were born in South America, why is it you don't call yourself a South American, American?
2b) Since I believe in evolution and quite possibly am a tweaked desecendent of Lucy which paleoanthropologists discovered in Africa, wouldn't that make me an African American even though I'm caucasion?

You have one hour to complete the questions.

A few seconds will do me.

1) Rejected, for two reasons. First, it assumes facts not in evidence. My second reason is that I am offended by your language.

2a) Again, assumes facts not in evidence (what I call myself, and what Black Americans prefer), and contains an insult.

2b) What's a caucasion?

Still, what's to address? It's called "spending cuts". You asked for it, you got it. What's the beef? Did you think that could happen without any actual effect to real people?

Yes, I really think you did.

For eight years ya'll (speaking collectively) said nothing nada zip as the deficit ballooned out of control. Then in Nov 08 ya'll got born-again fiscal religion. Hallellujah. Ever since then it's been "spending cuts, spending cuts, spending cuts". But what do you mean specifically? "I don't know, just don't cut mine, and don't make me contribute."

OK, so here we are.

Ay caramba! You people can't make up your mind.
