Unemployment Extension: Still Dead

Unfortunately, that is not what happened. When people stop receiving unemployment benefits, they are no longer considered among the unemployed. Hence, the unemployment rate goes down.  (1 hr ago | post #5)

Democrats find living on minimum wage is tough

But, but, but I thought the problem is that people cannot live with a minimum wage job. How much do you expect them to buy by increasing their hourly wage a few dollars? The true objective of the Democrats is about power. Democrats crave the power to control the lives of others, and this takes money. Lots of it. Increase the wages and income tax revenue also increases. Big Government needs big finances and they've soaked the rich for as much as they can. The money has to come from somewhere and now the Democrats are looking at ways to pick another set of pockets. Now, they are demanding more from the working poor. .  (Tuesday | post #47)

This is news? Democrats have never been known for living within their means. They expect others to carry their load.  (Tuesday | post #46)

Congress Agrees To Reform The VA

You misunderstood. I didn't mean to say that he caused the VA problem, even though it happens on his watch and his disinterest in finding a solution is telling. I mean that he is too busy causing problems. These include the overthrow of the elected Government in Ukraine merely because he couldn't win a trade agreement, the release of terrorists to wreak havoc throughout the Middle and Near East, and the disruption to access to affordable health care. Obama has been outrageous throughout his term in office for his actions. He's been slapped by the Supreme Court for overstepping his authority and the House is finally bringing him to account.  (Tuesday | post #10)

Congress Agrees To Reform The VA

The problems in the VA are administrative. That is, they really ought to be handled by the Executive. However, Obama is not interested in solving problems because he's too busy causing them. Still, the legislation offered is helpful in that it allows vets to seek care outside of the VA, it provides additional funds, and it makes it easier to fire incompetents. This last provision is important. It should also be applied to all Federal offices.  (Tuesday Jul 29 | post #6)

U.S. embassy in Libya evacuated

Clearly, we will never agree since you continue to resort to mindless ridicule and denial of facts, not to mention deflection. But I believe that I have effectively demonstrated that George Washington would NOT be considered a liberal. That was your assertion and it has been demonstrated to be false on every point.  (Monday Jul 28 | post #78)

Paul: 'Fight for justice' on unfair sentences

Didn't read the article, did you? This is not the first time, Senator Paul spoke against unfair sentencing. This time, though, he is actually presenting legislation to address the issue. And that legislation has bi-partisan and local support. "Paul also touted that he's working with Democrats, like Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, on a bill that would expunge records, under certain circumstances, of non-violent and youth related crimes. And, he's rubbing shoulders with Attorney General Eric Holder on sentencing reform as well as some Republican governors." But, I suppose you think that any legislation proposed in an election year is a trick. Now, you do realize that there is a national election every two years in America. Not much opportunity for addressing problems in your world, is there?  (Monday Jul 28 | post #4)

U.S. embassy in Libya evacuated

1. You have no intelligent reply, so resort to mindless ridicule. Typical LIBERAL tactic. 2. Obama was not referring to roads, buildings, etc. if he were he would have said "those" instead of "that." Attempting to re-write history is another typical LIBERAL tactic. 3. Read the papers, dear. Who is calling for sanctions against Russia? Feign ignorance. Another LIBERAL tactic.(Actually, all too often, liberal ignorance is very real. How often has Obama claimed not to know what was going on in his own transparent administration?) 4. Thank you for demonstrating my point! In fact Bush did no less than FDR IN DEFENDING America against her enemies. And he did it without putting American citizens in concentration camps! Also, no food or fuel rationing. 5. Ukraine. Thanks for demonstrating the observation I offered in 3, above.  (Monday Jul 28 | post #73)

Actually, no, Washington would be a conservative. He advocated small, non-intrusive Government. Not the nanny state preferred by liberals. And, while you are correct in saying he encouraged private commerce, this is not what Progressives such as Obama and the Clintons espouse. Quite the opposite! Don't you recall Obama chastising American entrepreneurs with, "You didn't build that?" And, how do you reconcile the ideal of trade freely with liberals constantly clamoring for trade sanctions? Also, defending America when it is attacked is precisely what liberals vilify George Bush for doing. Instead, liberals praise Obama for freeing terrorists to wage war against America. And finally, George Washington would never consider over-throwing a democratically elected Government, even less merely because it refused to sign a trade agreement. That is what liberals have done. They are more like Al Capone in this Ukraine adventure than George Washington by a country mile.  (Monday Jul 28 | post #62)

What "terror fight?" Just last year, he said the war on terror was over. And only a few weeks ago, he started releasing terrorists from prison.  (Monday Jul 28 | post #14)
