If I'd bought a buncha Halliburton stock when ole "mission accomplished" got elected, I'd be a rich little doogie now. Lots of other people did, read insiders, and got rich. With all those no-bid, no scrutiny contracts the stock price skyrocked.

Meanwhile our service people died in unarmored transport and so manner other needless ways, ate crap once a day while the taxpackers paid for expensive food service, and got electrocuted in showers built by 3rd world workers while Haliburton collected extortionate fees.

If Obama had any cohones, we would have had a war crimes tribunal for Cheney and pals.

I find it interersting that you (I don't mean just you personally) who regularly post demeaning and venomous statements toward our President (and his family), all of a sudden develop a thin skin when your own "leader" is subjected so some ribbing.
obama, and the queen, have earned almost everything derogatory that's been said about them. After all, he quietly sat by, saying nothing, as his supporters did the same, or worse, towards President Bush, and his family, and even contributed to the attacks. Turn about is fair play. Don't forget, barry asked for the job, and then adopted and expanded many of the things he was ragging on President Bush about.

If you're too ignorant to understand how you went too far with another poster, I feel sorry for you. Social skills like that will limit you to just a few professions... one of which is the one you say you hold.

Never said they were.
Then how can you possibly know how they would have performed as Presidents?

We can all easily see, and that includes the world, what a "zero" obama became once he got the job, but we don't know if McCain or Romney would have soared or flopped. There's no way to tell if either would have been as bad, or worse, then the failure that the obama pResidency became. You have nothing to compare... except your "feelings".

You might want to spend a little time watching the Military channel... you'd be shocked at the equipment they sent our soldiers overseas to fight with. The Germans had better equipment, but we had more determined soldiers. The Japanese had better aircraft, but we had the better pilots. The Axis had the bigger military, but we had the better manufacturing capabilities.

'Feelings' reminded me of Louie DePalma on Taxi, when he sang the song at the diner. He was pining for the popular girl in high school. His ten year (twenty?) reunion was coming up and he was melancholy over it. Louie was the backbone of the show right up until they re-introduced Reverend Jim.(what does the yellow light mean?)
again, nothing to do with the current conversation. just thought it was funny.

How jaw-droppin' stupid d'ya gotta be to be a state lawmaker in TX?

Hell, I couldn't believe what I read, I had to find the video to hear it for myself. But, yep, she really did say:

“If a woman is raped… We have hospital emergency rooms,” Texas State Rep. Jodie Laubenberg (R) insisted.“We have funded what’s called rape kits that will help the woman, basically clean her out. And then hopefully that will alleviate that.”

We might easily LOL......if her stupidity didn't resonate perfectly with so many other ridiculously clueless statements from a disproportionately powerful minority whose end-game is to rescind women's hard-won rights to control over their own personal biology.

Hey, bob, is this a gal a product of the TX educational system? Look into that, willya? Jeez, no wonder you're such a curmudgeon about gov't, if this is the kind of legislature you gotta endure. yikes...

People are always making idiot mistakes like that. When we lived in Packwood Washington, the 'chehalis' tribe, a bunch of 1/8 Native Blood folks who somehow got tribal recognition, kept badgering me about what to do about my daughter's CP. They'd see something on the 'discovery channel' and vehemently tell me that it was a cure for Kelly. I'd tell them that what they saw was something for chronic back problems, and they would not listen. One thing they were sure about was that horseback riding would have Kelly 'cured within six months'. I'm sure that the medical community would have been interested in that.
I was 'up' on all the latest rumbles in the medical field regarding CP. The 'net was new, and I read Everything on the subject. In 1989, they had come up with the 'tendonnectomy', I believe it was called. I saw a documentary on PBS, and two days later Kelly's doc invited me to a conference. He and a full med staff were discussing the operation. They started by telling me that there was a new procedure, and I asked if the tendonnectomy was what they were talking about. They looked at each other, and Kelly's doc finally said,'You've heard of this? It only became available recently.' I told him yes, and I thought that Kelly was Way too young to start butchering her legs before other alternatives had been exhausted. She was only three. Six years later, Kelly was running up and down the halls, using her walker and playing hide and seek with her older brother and friends.
Of course, the state stepped in and took Kelly away, saying that I was too crippled to take care of her properly. They then put Kelly in a foster home that didn't allow her to use her walker. "It's bad for the carpet.' the foster parents claimed. In the six years they had her, they Never sent her to physical therapy, and Kelly's leg tendons tightened up to the point she cannot straighten her legs out anymore.
If they had, I believe that Kelly would be walking, maybe with a cane, but not dependent to a wheelchair anymore. But,'bad for the carpet' has doomed Kelly to a wheelchair for the rest of her life.
How's that for stupid?

Who is waging the "real" war on women?

What's the difference between Dr. Kermit Gosnell, Philly's out-of-the-womb abortion specialist, and barack obama, who voted twice to condone such proedures?

Why is obama embarrassing us by negotiating with, and thereby legitimizing, the taliban? The taliban, that has absolutely no need to negotiate or compromise... they know barry has the American troops leaving Afghanistan in July 2014. The taliban, who didn't allow girls to attend school, and are still killing the teachers and female students even today. The taliban, who would not allow women to work, drive or even leave their homes without a male relative escort. The taliban, who continue to attack and kill our soldiers, even as the obama administration is bestowing legitimacy on them.

Why does the obama White House pay their female staff so much less than the male staff?

Why have women lost such a high percentage of the jobs lost under the obama administration.

Why is the obama administration seeing such a large increase of women and chidren in poverty?

Who is really waging the "war on women"?

I still think Rep Hank Johnson (D-GA) takes the cake. He petitioned against any military expansion on Guam due to the 'fact' that......... It's a pretty small island, and our expansion could cause it to tip over and capsize.

"Then how can you possibly know how they would have performed as Presidents?"

By their statements, actions and campaign platforms.

"You might want to spend a little time watching the Military channel"

You might want to spend less time watching commercial TV and more time researching credible sources.

And quoting the lying, incompetant Rumsfield just betrays your ignorance.
Do you even know why Bush fired him?

And the birth certificate still stands.

Those who question the validity of the birth certificate are Al Quida agents, they've offered no proof they aren't working for the terrorists.

And Bobin in TX... no Texas citizens have been US citizens since 1861, Texas never met the requirements for readmission:

"The U.S. state of Texas declared its secession from the United States on February 1, 1861, and joined the Confederate States of America on March 2, 1861, replacing its governor, Sam Houston, when he refused to take an oath of allegiance to the Confederacy. "

"President Andrew Johnson appointed Union General Andrew J. Hamilton, a prominent politician before the war, as the provisional governor on June 17. He granted amnesty to ex-Confederates if they promised to support the Union in the future, appointing some to office. However, it was not until March 30, 1870, that the United States Congress permitted Texas' representatives to take their seat in Congress,[16] although Texas did not meet all the formal requirements for readmission."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_in_the_Ame...

Yes, both Bushs were unlawful pResidents, never Citizens of the United States.

Bobin, you aren't a Citizen of the United States, please stop interfering in our political process.

There it is. Of course he claims he was joking - if so, his delivery needs some serious work.

I guess I'd rather see them make stupid comments about geography than a subject like pregnancy after rape, tho'....

That was an award winning ignorant-moronic-statement. No argument here.
==

Joe Salazar (D) made one which ties him for first place in my view and in the view of alot of other women. When involving himself in the debate on whether or not permits for concealed guns for women on college campuses should be allowed, big Joe took a turn at the bat with this comment:

"It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody."

"Women won't know who they're shooting at?" Joe opined he was fearful women may shoot first and ask questions later because... why? Does he view women as hysterical, unable to tell when they are in danger? Not adroit enough to handle a boys toy? Do womens "feelings" get in the way of sound judgement? Maybe Joe thinks they shouldn't be at college in the first place. Joe sounds like the kind of lugnut who when spoken to by a woman in a way that doesn't please him, asks her if she's having her period.

Being pro choice I agree women should have autonomy over their body but when a party states a woman should be allowed to have an abortion but not carry a gun to protect herself, sorry but that just seems a little screwy to me.

I'd like to tell Joe something about women. Women are the undisputed experts at being on the receiving end of domestic violence. Their wishes to prevent it by evening up the odds should be met. Women are the undisputed experts on being raped. Their wishes to prevent it by evening up the odds should be met. The 2nd leading cause of death for pregnant women in this country is homicide by the man who fathered the child. I guess when those women blew their whistles, no one heard them, I guess they should have stayed in a "safe zone." I guess they should have run faster to a call box......maybe if they didn't run like a girl they woulda made it.

Liberals are in favor of a poor woman living in Harlem going to an abortion clinic to excercise her right over bodily autonomy. They are not in favor of her being able to protect herself to get there.

...and the wheel of stupid goes round and round.

I wish someone would explain the Clintons to me.
Bill, the darling of the democrat party treated Hillary like a cheap doormat for decades with emotional abuse and by publically and repeatedly humiliating her with his extracurricular activites......and by sticking around, her message to women the world over, was to just grin and bear it.

How those two got to be the annointed power couple for representing and empowering women, is beyond me.

Your post promted me to wonder two things. Why didn't Snowden take his concerns to someone elsewhere on the governmental chain or why didn't he take his story and concerns to an American journalist?

If the answers to those questions were he couldn't go to anyone in the government because no one in the government in his view can be trusted and he couldn't go to for example the NY Times with the story because he knew the NY Times would have distorted it unmercifully because the tale paints liberalism and this administration poorly, that is something to note. It's no secret that their first allegiance is to liberalism but how far will they go to protect it? They might have tweaked it and buried it on page 9 and/or simply not printed any of it and just notified the White House they had a problem on their hands. He couldn't go to FOX because look at what Holder at the DOJ tried to do to Rosen. He couldn't go to the Associated Press for similar reasons.

There was a time in this country when all else failed, a citizen could take their issue to the news media and gain support and expect a reasonable opportunity to have their story heard in the manner in which they intended it to be heard. It occurs to me that the news media in the US may now be the 4th branch of government under Obama and it represents liberalism at all costs. The US government may now be so decayed & corrupt he felt he had no choice but to take it to the Guardian in the UK.

If that is all true or even if there is only some truth to it, I don't think it's a stretch to say we have a bigger problem in this country than I thought. Regardless of party affiliation this story should make everyone want to look alot more closely at Washington.

Give me just a sec to don my tinfoil hat, but the timing of this makes me wonder. Obama was enmeshed in so many scandals. Snowden just started working for the contracting company 3 months before he let the cat out of the bag. Could he be Obama's strawman to divert attention from all that is wrong with this administration? As you see, the IRS (which is investigating itself) is all of the sudden coming up with liberal groups that were targeted.
When Chicago politics are involved I don't put anything past them and the press is just too dumb to figure it out or they don't care as long as they have a rock star to report on.
