Europes anger at Obama grows over NSA spying
By Los Angeles Times October 25, 2013
LONDON -- European leaders united in outrage Thursday over reported U.S. spying, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel declaring that trust between her government and the Obama administration would need to be rebuilt after reports that U.S. intelligence agencies might have tapped her cellphone.
Amid signs of anger from close allies over mass electronic surveillance, Germany's Foreign Ministry also summoned U.S. Ambassador John B. Emerson to make clear its displeasure. Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said afterward that he had demanded that "these activities that have been reported will be comprehensively investigated. We need the truth now."

Ho hum, just another day in the Obama administration. The good news is the president doesn't know anything about this (he never does) but he'll get to the bottom of it in a jiffy! Yay!
This is why I call most news propaganda now. This will have some fake outrage and then the story will go away. It has to really suck when our friends are telling us to pound sand. And I'm sure if we had a President Romney right now the media would cover this the same way. Sarcasm off.

I have no idea what that has to do with my post but maybe it's like a crossword puzzle. If I walk away from it for awhile and come back later maybe the answer will come to me.

Anyway, here are todays scoops.
Scoop 1)
Obama & Co. is going to fan out on the fundraising campaign trail again......(shocking, huh?) only this time to raise $$$'s for 2014 democrat challengers. He and his advisors think this is an excellent time to work toward replacing republicans in the House with democrats because they feel the GOP is seriously weakened due to the Tea Party inspired shutdown.
How great is THAT?(There's that nasty little ammunition I was telling you about which your little Teddy Bear Cruz handed them on a silver platter and they're now shooting republicans with.)
Good job!
Scoop 2) Moderate GOP is going on the warpath to oust Tea Party members to push for moderate republicans because they think the Tea Party is responsible for the low poll numbers brought about by the architect, Ted Cruz and his little band of usurping revelers.
Scoop 3) Tea Party polls are nosediving brought about by the fact that most Americans think the 24 billion dollar price tag it cost for Cruz to get his name up in lights was a bit steep. Many Americans also think Obamcare was headed for a meltdown anyway and the whole shutdown thing was all for naught. And judging from the reviews, the Tea Party performance in DC will never make it to Broadway. No one knows what to name it anyway. Was it much ado about nothing or was it a tempest in a teacup? Voters will have to decide in a year.
I think our government needs to change. Either that, or we just give up, join the Democrats, and continue to let ourselves become a redistributive nation. It would be nice if some of our Democrat leaning Republicans weren't so anxious to stab fellow Republicans in the back to get re-elected, and do what's best for the country instead.

I'm not ready to give up just yet. We'll see how the chips fall next November, and see what the voters want.

Scoop 4) Red Sox-Cardinals.
"BOSTON -- As a veteran of several Octobers, David Ortiz (Big Papi) doesn't sweat the small stuff. So when he had what would have been his second grand slam of this postseason taken away on a great catch by St. Louis Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran in the second inning Wednesday night, he knew what he had to do.
"Just make sure I hit it a little farther," Ortiz deadpanned hours later after getting revenge by hammering a two-run shot that helped the Red Sox cap an 8-1 victory over the Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series."
Hey bobin, my Big Papi hit the 2nd one to the MOOOOOOOOOOON!
YAY!
Scoop 5)Same as scoop 4
Red Sox 8
Cardinals 1
I missed most of that game, and only got to see the first and ninth innings. I suppose I should consider myself fortunate.

I did get to see almost all of Game 2... I probably enjoyed that one a tad more than you did.

His demand was simple.
Defund a law of the land ---> or ELSE <---.
A LAW mind you which had 2 national elections based on it, it passed through both houses, it was signed by the POTUS and given the stamp of approval by SCOTUS.

I think we're in big trouble too, and it's time to change. Web can't afford to keep going in the direction the government is taking us.

Which country are you speaking about?
Obama got 51.1 percent of the popular vote to Mitt Romney's 47.2 percent, a four point margin. A virtual split when considering the millions who voted. Seems to me that he is listening to the country. I'm guessing in 2016 the spread will be greater and the cries will be louder.

But the US led the way in getting the UN organized at the SF conference

Oops, we made a mistake, bad intel? We apologize? Sorry Mr. Bob, I feel that is just unacceptable. Personally I’m not feelin’ it. Too many lives were snuffed out unnecessarily. What a waste, what a waste. Not to mention the lives of horror that will continue as a result of that decision.
War as been considered a “viable” alternative by our ancestors to settling human dispute and has inflicted widespread destruction and terror on many groups of the past including the groups you have listed, the bed has been made for us and we are forced to lye down in it. Politicians have no other alternative other than to continue this barbaric world bankers past time. Imo.
<possible dupe-1st one disappeared back to the future>.

Gotta agree. But [we] didn't learn of our mistake until we were already there in Iraq.

There we found the truth of Hussein's oppressive regime. One of torture, abuse, and murder. And of his 2 evil sons penchant to rape, torture and murder innocent women and children to satisfy their abyssmal depravity.

GW Bush decided to free millions of Iraqis, to be able to elect and run their own democratic government, and to take part in national elections. You could see the pride these people had in literally risking their lives to go to the polls and vote, many for the 1st time in their lives.(Remember the purple thumbs)?

You said it. "Too many lives were lost unnecessarily". But most of those
murdered were at the hand of ruthless coward insurgents, trying to show the US was guilty party, in order to spread hatred and have all coalition forces ousted. It didn't work, mainly because Iraqis saw who the real villans were
and stood up for the US.

Many innocent people were also murdered by cowards who wanted to ignite another civil war, and blame it on the US. That didn't work either, same reason.

After Mubarak fell in Egypt, other countries like Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, and eventually Syria, began rebelling. They wanted a chance to change their leadership too, and the domino effect was making plenty of hardcore arabs nervous. Iran was VERY nervous, because they'd already come close to a revolution or two, and the mullahs didn't want any part of that.

You "know history" so well but you so quickly forget Cruz' stated goal? Clue - it wasn't "delay the individual mandate".

Oh not much. Just 800,000 federal workers and their families. Just a few thousand servicemen and women waiting for their pre-deployment training. Just a few kids wondering about their cancer treatments. Just silly stuff like that.

You do? Oh yeah, you "see" deeper than most, according to the resume you dropped off. Well, your history book is different than mine, Ms. Omniscient. The last one lasted almost a week longer in my book.

You didn't? One wonders then why don't you trust your first instinct?

Could it be that you're just petulantly tossing out yet another dismal go-to blanket dismissal phrase that allows you to avoid facts?

I tend to the progressive side of most questions, no secret or shame there. I'm a cynical optimist, if you will, or a hopeful pessimist, if you won't. But if you were really paying attention rather than seeking to reinforce your own predispositions, you'd note that I do NOT want to see a government controlled in the executive AND legislative branches by any single party.

And swashbuckler Cruz and his merry pirates just pushed the barge a long way toward that reef.
