No Americans killed fighting in another ME country where you can't distinguish between who's the enemy and who's an ally.
4 years and Republicans have yet to offer their plan / alternative to Obamacare. They want to keep things the way they are so insurance company profits are maximized and the ins. companies can cancel your coverage when you get sick.
Republicans are deathly afraid that Obamacare WILL BE successful. THat would prove that they were putting party above country for the last 4 years.
Fox ,et al, opposes a Syria peace plan because its motus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence.
Repubs live in an alternate universe where there is no downside cost to pollution, since, after it leaves your tailpipe/smoke stack, it's someone else's problem. They also believe Jebus will clean it all up.
Coupled with the fact that she was looking forward to the end of days and would have no hesitation to usher in nuclear armageddon, I want that jerk far away from anything sharp,, let alone the red button.
The cop had to tell the idiot to stop screwing around with his gun and close the glove box...
Who in their right mind pulls out his gun when they're pulled over for speeding?
Since the R's were in control of congress from 1995-2007 you are essentially stating either:
A) Republicans are too stupid to understand how complex financial systems work.
B) Republicans objectives were to make as much money from the meltdown by shorting anything and everything that was going down.
And, the Bush administration NEVER warned of trouble with Freddie and Fannie. The Bush administration turned a deaf ear to the warnings coming from the CFTC and told them we understand everything and there's nothing to worry about.
BTW, the answer to my question at the head of this thread is: PHIL GRAMM. The #1 person responsible for the financial meltdown. He and his gang of fellow R's wrote the legislation that disolved the last of Glass-Stegal and let the banks run wild with risk.
The rest is history. Try to learn from it.
He also stated IN 2008...
"We're in a mental recession".
"Thank God the economy is not as bad as you read in the newspaper "
Try getting your 'facts' from someplace other than the Glen Beck university.
NASA Goddard institute for space studies
MET office Hadley centre/Climatic research unit
NOAA National Climatic Data Center
Japanese Meteorological Agency
The 97% number is directly from NASA. you can argue with them if you like.
BTW, just because someone gets a nobel prize in physics doesn't make them an expert in climate science. Smart, yes. Expert in everything? Not quite.
Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities,1and most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.
It's the Right wing zealots who look like idiots. Many of the "studies" put forth by the Right include OPINIONS from anyone with a BS from BYU where science is secondary or tertiary to theology.
Freedom of religion says you can do what you want and I can do likewise. Where we have a problem is idiots who don't understand that freedom of religion also means freedom from religion. We have a problem when idiots say they want prayer back in public schools, led by the teachers, and it MUST BE Christian, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, prayers. That's not freedom of religion.
Rig on fire, collapsed, oil and gas leaking. Company sat on hands until the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement came down hard on Walter Oil & Gas. Another job creating company uses the planet as a garbage dump.
Qaydan is insane. all he does is spout BS that he hears on his little radio into his little brain.
Steve "big mouth" King was speaking about kids who grew up in America and are illegal only because their parents brought them here illegally when they were months or a couple years old.
It's kind of the same thing as you being tried, convicted, and sent to jail for 20 years because your mother robbed a bank when you were 1 year old.
"We lost the last election because of A$Hats like King. With him running his mouth 24 x 7, we can kiss 2014 & 16 goodbye".
King admitted on CNN that he just makes krap up when he spouts his numbers.
