Vladimir Putin is currently cashing in on an ill-advised promise made when two presidents thought no one was listening. You may recall President Obama’s whispered assurance, back in March of 2012, to then Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev:“This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

We are now witnessing that promised flexibility. America’s foreign policy is becoming a caricature—international affairs according to Gumby.

That's why JFK and Bobby both bought the farm.
And that's why Ted Kennedy was Obama's main sponsor.

It’s hard to fit an execution and a fundraiser into your schedule
http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/09/11/its-hard-to-fi...
After 25 years of moving through the court system, the planned execution of convicted murderer Marshall Lee Gore was delayed Tuesday because Florida attorney general Pam Bondi wanted to attend a fundraiser for herself.
Bondi, who is seeking reelection in Florida, asked Gov. Rick Scott to postpone the execution of Gore because it conflicted with her “re-election kick-off reception,” according to the Tampa Bay Times. Scott said he didn’t know why Bondi had asked to reschedule the execution.
Are you a person who opposes putting murderers to death but have no problem killing innocent children via abortion?

Because of BO's flexibility, er, ineptitude, we have become weaker and the laughing stock of the world. Who trusts us now??? It's time to concentrate all our efforts within our own country fixing all that is meesed up before we ever consider running over to some foreing country acting like we are Marshall Dillon. We need to stop throwing money at the enemy as if the we all have money trees in our backyards.

Emails show IRS’ Lois Lerner specifically targeted tea party

By Stephen Dinan and Seth McLaughlin-The Washington Times

Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the Internal Revenue Service scandal over special scrutiny of conservative groups, specifically targeted tea party applications and directed that they be held up in 2011 in order to come up with an agency policy, according to several of Ms. Lerner’s emails released by a House committee Thursday.
In one 2011 email, Ms. Lerner specifically calls the tea party applications for tax-exempt status problematic, which seems to counter Democrats’ arguments that tea party groups weren’t targeted....

You could be right about other countries not biting the hand that feeds them but then again look at who attacked the Twin Towers, Benghazi, USS Cole, the first Twin tower attack, etc. These people were from countries we support financially.
Obama sent money and weapons before and after attacks to Egypt, Libya, etc.
Although, I am glad you are keeping a open mind about what is going on because it really has me doubtful.
It all has me doubtful as well but I try to be as posit-ive as I can in lieu of everything that is transpiring.
I am also of the opinion that Russia is not to be trusted under any circumstances yet in this matter.

He collects "trash"? Really? Or, are you saying he's not above stopping by "trash" and locating a treasure somebody else discarded?

Antiquers are at the forefront of "salvage" operations. I was in a Goodwill a few days ago. There was the most lovely old panel and cut glass starburst lead crystal bowl on a cart that had just been rolled out (Heisey colonial?). I assume they thought it was pressed glass. It was tagged $1.50. Anyhow, I rang it to the sweet sound of dulcet tones at the check-out lane and decided it was the perfect size to hold cranberry relish for Thanksgiving. Yes, you can use your lead crystal on RARE occasion.

Nobody asked whether I was a conservative or a liberal or a moderate. We just call each other by name and trade hugs. Funny how nobody here cares too much what your politics are. It's more about your character and personality and the way you treat people and your interest in them.

Taxpayers Shoulder Bulk Of Gun Violence Costs, Study Finds

By Jillian Berman

09/13/2013

Taxpayers are spending hundreds of millions of dollars each year to care for the victims of gun violence, according to a report from the Urban Institute released Friday.

About 80 percent of the cost of treating victims of gun violence in 2010 was borne in part by taxpayers, according to an analysis of hospital and insurance data by researchers at the nonpartisan think tank. That means taxpayers paid for victims' care either through government programs like Medicaid, or through publicly-funded programs that subsidize hospital care for those who don't have insurance and can’t afford to pay.

“The victims are concentrated among young, poor males,” said the report's author, Embry Howell, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute.“This is the population we’re talking about and their costs are very high. It's one group that is heavily uninsured."

Hospitals in the U.S. spent $630 million in 2010 treating the victims of gun violence -- everything from minor gunshot wounds to injuries that required days-long stays -- and public funds provided most of that money. The Medicaid costs of gun violence alone that year amounted to approximately $327 million.

Notably, the report found that the average cost of a hospital visit for a gun violence victim is $14,000 more than that of the average hospital stay, due to the severity of the injuries often involved.

Lawmakers could significantly shrink these costs by making firearms less widely available, Howell said.(cont.)

I was just like you until I moved to the country and had to deal with them.
You must be dealing with large corporate farms. The small farmers have never been anything other then the salt of the earth. They work extremely hard and in most cases will do whatever they can to help you out or give you the last of their crops that they won't be using.

Taxpayers are spending hundreds of millions of dollars each year to care for the beneficiaries of special interest groups, who promote violence, killing. and other unamerican activities under the leadership of a failure who wants to endanger the second ammendment to our constitution according to we the people .
