Really Woody, the only people dancing on graves are those responsible for their deaths, you know Hillary, Obama and Panetta, the same three that took no action after being notified fifteen minutes into the strike that they were under terrorist attack and not an attack due to a video.

Isn't Wisconsin Right to work ?

With a Republican legislator at the State level, I would bet they are.

Right to work protects workers in union shops from haing to joint the unions but leaves them subject to having to pay a fair shaire for collective bargaining benefits. representation.

When have taxes been lower than they are right now at every level?

Brazil has low taxes, as does Argentina. Do you think you could survive in either country socially or economically? Would you keep your wealth in either's banking system to avoid US Taxes?

Pricing is consumer driven in a free market. Cuba Govt sets pricing in Cuba woould you trade our system for Cuba's?

<quoted text>KENYAN-BORN Obama's plan has ALWAYS been to destroy the dollar. Why not he has already wrecked everything else.
Lowering the minimum wage would stave off the end and lower prices at the same time. This is what we really want lower prices and lower taxes. I wouldn't care if I never get a raise then.
Antichrist/Kali/Mahdi/Maitreya /Kenyan-born Obama are ALL one and the same evil person.
JESUS SAID In Luke 10:18 “I saw Satan fall like lightning from the heights.”
Which in Hebrew is:“ra’ah satan naphal a’her baraq o bamah”
That is correct baraq (or barak in English) means lightning.
And bamah means the heights, heaven and above the clouds.
The Bible also refers to the Antichrist as “the man-of-lawlessness”. Kenyan-born Obama has disregarded the law of our Constitution from day-one. The law does not apply to him. He is above the law. And actually Barack H. Obama is a man without a country and under unknown jurisdiction. He was technically born a 100% British Subject per the British Nationality Act of 1948 and later adopted in Indonesia as Barry Soetoro. The Hawaiian Birth Certificate is a forgery. BHO is using a stolen Social Security number which explains why he found it impossible to sign-up for his own anti-Christian Obamacare. This arrogant blasphemous Antichrist is a stern-faced king and stands against all that is holy placing Evangelical Christians at the very top of the Federal Terrorists Watch List.
OBAMA IS THE ANTICHRIST and soon comes The Rapture.
Jesus Christ is our ONLY means of escape from the coming tribulation and the lake of fire. He loved us so much He was crucified for our sins. Ask Jesus into your heart and surrender your life to Him. He will forgive your sins and make you new.

How many times had a Republican President sent in troops in response to Amerians being attacked overseas by terriorist? Last I remember NEVER.

Congress passed a resolution for no boots on the ground in Libya,

The question has not been answered why and what were CIA Contractors doing on the ground as Libya was fighting a Civil War?

Benghazi is political pandering, for political positioning.

It's not a question whether funding was cut. The question is did those funding cuts have anything to do with Benghazi? The answer is NO..... at least according to the left-leaning FactCheck.org .
Why would funding cuts to the State department NOT have an adverse affect on State department mission security in a hot zone like Behghazi? Requiring the use of cheap security?

The Republican Representative admitted his part in failing the mission with prioritzing and funding cuts.

Irrespective to fact check, that mentioned nothing about benghazi or funding cuts, we have the admission from the horses mouth, he voted to cut funding and in doing so compromised the lives of Stevens and the 3 Contractors..

I see you ignored or don't remember our conversation about "action and reaction."
Can you point to me where in the Constitution government is supposed to regulate wealth? It isn't in there and not in there for a reason.
For your information, I'm a patient at the world famous Cleveland Clinic. I have to go there yearly for my checkup. When I go into the Clinic, I feel like a foreigner. Many of the doctors are not from the US. Why is that? Because they come here to get educated and then decide to stay because they can make a much better living here than going back to their own country. Our education is fine, it's just that these liberal colleges charge so much for education that not everybody can afford it.
So can you explain to me the equity in being taxed to pay for somebody else's advanced education, and in turn when I need legal or medical help, they charge me an arm and a leg?
Another thing for your information: trucks use diesel fuel because it provides the power to pull a 50,000 lbs. load across the country. Gasoline doesn't have that ability.
Cradle to grave is the system used in places like China, North Korea and even Cuba. Why not go there for your experience with cradle-to-grave and then come back in ten years (if they let you) and tell us how great it was.
Your problem isn't with the "liberal" LOL, colleges, but with the right wing run hospitals and health insurers. These corporations are in the business to price fix procedures and supplies. Medicare seeks to level that playing field by contesting the gross and exorbitant charges.

At least with socialized medicine, as I have used often in Europe, your prescriptions are FREE, or a such low cost, anyone can afford them. As well, their health care is cutting edge (no pun intended), with better coverage, delivery, and outcomes.

State of the art is what I would describe most hospitals in most EU member nations. France, Germany, and Belgium in particular have superior care in superior facilities.

And NO ONE is rationed, as the Reich over here loves to drone on about. Socialized medicine is paid for through general taxation.

We could CUT our military spending by HALF, and still have the largest and best equipped military on earth by a factor of SIX. And use the savings to provide cradle to grave, socialized health care to all of our citizens.

See, what the biggest differences between right wing fascists and liberals, is that WE are the real patriots....we see our citizens as equals, and as a birthright of being American, we should have certain civilizing, and unifying features.....health care is but one of them.

Education is another, also something to be socialized, and paid for through general taxation.

But here, we have to fight an entrenched elitist class of the right wing super wealthy, who use their untaxed, surplus wealth as a weapon against our founder's intent of a UNION of states that provides for the GENERAL welfare.

Now, either we're going to get there one way or another, or we're going to devolve into anarchy at a point in time, the choice lies with the wealthy elites and their powerful sway over our government currently.

The wrong choice means that those with the most to lose, will lose everything.

Hillary spent money on green initiatives and booze instead of security for our ambassador.

barock went to campaign the night of the attack.

A video had nothing to do with it.

A key finding in the ARB report was:“Security in Benghazi was not recognized and implemented as a ‘shared responsibility’ by the bureaus in Washington charged with supporting the post, resulting in stove-piped discussions and decisions on policy and security. That said, Embassy Tripoli did not demonstrate strong and sustained advocacy with Washington for increased security for Special Mission Benghazi.”

During hearings into the attack last fall and this month, State Department officials were specifically asked if a lack of financial resources played a role in the attack. The answer was no.

Less than 15 of every 100 workers in America belong to a union, Reagan and Republicans killed unions and worker benefits 30 years ago, from 1996 to right before the Collapse of the American economy and financial system, Republicans held a choke hold on Congress.

Republican policies helped to extingish unions, and like wise Republicans in the 10 years they held the majority in congress before the meltdown, voted for free trade policies and taxing proposals that sent American jobs over seas.

Republicans destroyed the middle class in the last 30 years concenterated in the 10 years before the destruction of the economy in 2006 unabated with a Republican in the White House.

The ARB highlighted that Spending Cuts were responsible for lacklust security in Behghazi, which lead to stovepipe decision making, midlevel managers trying to do something with nothing.

The Republican rep admitted his vote in cutting funds.

How do you sell that as not having a catastrophe consequence?

Budget numbers, though, show the overall diplomatic security budget has ballooned over the past decade. While there were modest decreases in funding in recent years -- and Congress has approved less than was requested -- the overall security budget has more than doubled since fiscal 2004.

For that year, the budget was $640 million. It steadily climbed to $1.6 billion in fiscal 2010. It dipped to $1.5 billion the following year and roughly $1.35 billion in fiscal 2012.

Slightly more has been requested for fiscal 2013.

It's difficult to tell how much was specifically allocated for Benghazi. Tripoli was the only post mentioned in the department's fiscal 2013 request -- funding for that location did slip, from $11.5 million in fiscal 2011 to $10.1 million the following year. Slightly more has been requested for fiscal 2013.

Still, then-Deputy Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security Charlene Lamb testified in October that the size of the attack -- and not the money -- was the issue.

Asked if there was any budget consideration that led her not to increase the security force, she said: "No."

She added: "This was an unprecedented attack in size." Asked again about budget issues, Lamb said: "Sir, if it's a volatile situation, we will move assets to cover that."
