    democrat eric holder ...RESIGNING in DISGRACE!

    Yea... I`m glad he`s resigning... but not for racism --- which I think is an overblown talking point for the Repubs for which I see no evidence to support it...

    But what I wanted Holder to do was actually put some of those bankers in jail that he busted with those huge settlements for mortgage fraud.... you don`t settle a court case for $1- 8 Billion dollars with banks and not have some of the top management that oversaw those crimes -- NOT GO TO JAIL....

    All that does is set a precedent for the future where bankers who think about committing fraud will think that the company will pay and they get to walk away free with their million dollar paydays...

    Yea.. that`s a really stupid statement... When a well armed and intelligent terrorist group claims to be the new Sunni Caliphate and starts attracting followers from across the muslim world .... and the leadership is intent on overturning the Saudi Royal House that controls the biggest pool of oil which we benefit from ---

    Suddenly you have `... terrorists threatening American interests...` with a future major economic impact globally ...

    That deserves a response... And the USA would be in a worst position in the Muslim world if it as a Christian nation took on ISIS by itself.... Obama did the absolutely right thing in forcing those muslim sunni countries to put men, aircraft and money into the attack on their fellow muslims...

    And now that those Sunni countries are committed to the fight --- they`ll be forced to take on the radicals within their own country and within their religion to stay in power... Which is right where the USA wants them -- instead of on the sidelines as the USA does the grunt work...

    Last video I saw on Ferguson, Mo.... was the one with the 2 white landscapers who were video`d holding up their hands and shouting at the cop that the guy had his hands up to surrender... ( they were only a few hundred feet away watching the whole thing take place)...

    I`m thinking your statement using Ferguson as an example is gonna turn out to be a poor choice when all the investigations are completed...

    Got 5 thumbs down ..... But not one of those 5 came up with an intelligent answer to the problem ... Would have loved to hear it but I guess that doesn`t exist in their fantasy world.... of short, glib statements and alot of chest pounding.... To bad.. cause even though I`m voting Democratic --- I was a Republican for 28 yrs... and I do think that America runs best when there are intelligent, well thought out options that are presented by all parties and than hashed out into a workable solution...

    As it is ... we got Death Panels statements instead...

    I`m looking forward to that hydrogen car.... Honda has one and it looks great... plus they built an in-house generator of hydrogen that also supplies electricty... which means at some point the homeowner can backoff of the electric grid... too... The present one runs off nat gas... the originally designed hydrogen generator ran off solar panels -- but I guess considering our abundance of nat gas now the N gas makes more sense...

    Plus I read where MIT earlier this year developed a way to stabilize hydrogen in a gas tank by having specialized pellets absorb it and discharge it as needed... Which takes some of the danger out of the system...

    Let me guess -- You like the corporations delivering our healthcare to AMericans -- the status quo -- before Obamacare...

    That`s good if we weren`t tied legally to NAFTA and it sandwiching the USA between Canada and mexico -- both of whom have National Healthcare for al their citizens and bypasses their corporations... Which means our trade partners corporations don`t have to jack up their prices for product or services in order to recoup that money like our US firms do... Which makes our healthcare delivery system --Anti-Competitive ...

    It also means that any American CEO with a manufacturing work force of 200 to 2000 ++++ would be a #$%$ idiot if they didn`t move to Mexico or Canada so they wouldn`t have to pay out for healthcare benes... How much money do you thing a plant of 1000 workers would save due to that over 1, 5, 10, 20 , 40 yrs .. Savigs that would go right to the bottom line of their profits and enhance managment and investors pay.... ??? Millions $$,, Billions$$$... ???

    Even if US wages drop to $6 per hr and Mexico rises to $6... It`s still worthwhile to quite the USA and rake in that savings for not having to pay out healthcare insurance...

    Which is why we see so many US companies trying to rein in these costs over the last 20 yrs by layoffs, outsourcing, hiring temps and sub contractors to get around paying benes... -- all of which means that our status quo Healthcare Insurance delievery system via our corporations that you love is --- a Jobs Killer for Americans... and is a stupid way to watch our country bleed to death...

    And as far as Canada having some people come to the US for procedures that are quicker --- that amounts to 500 to 1000... out of a total of 35 million Canadians... a drop in the preverbial bucket...

    `... Senior Death Camps...` I love it for it`s idiocy... Go Palin ... LOL...

    Sorry this has nothing to do with the election or the President... It`s the way the big Oil corps run their refineries as well as the independents... If you read what their explanations are they claim it`s winding down as they get ready to turn over to winter heating fuel production...

    The science on global climate change won`t be fought in the papers or on TV... but in the courts... and at a certain point that`s where this will wind up.... And than the climate deniers will have to defend their positions against studies like that from Geochemist James Powell -- ex Bush Sr science advisor -- who in his study to discover the extent of climate change deniers in the scientific community --- went back over 21 yrs ( up to 2012) and pulled out every Peer Reviewed (gold standard for science studies) study that mentioned `global climate change or global warming`.... of the 13,950 articles that met the search criteria... just 24 rejected human-caused climate change ... That`s 2/10ths of 1%, which is `Insignificant` ..... His update to the study covering 2012 to 12/ 2013 was even worse for the climate deniers...

    A definite problem for Republicans and the fossil fuel industry to defend against...

    When you consider how highly educated these scientist are and the broad global spectrum from which they come from and such a massive amount of agreement --- You can start to understand why the Property Casualty Insurance is looking for means to jack up rates... And why the global Swiss Re Insurance company announced that they will be raising rates in the future to the P&C Insurance industry for back up coverage..

    Now that as a Director of one of these fossil fuel firms has got to make you lose some sleep...

  • Yea... sounds like a stretch but in May that`s what happen to 49 of the top fossil fuel companies in the USA as their directors and management teams got notices that if they should be found as misleading the public about the dangers of climate change due to carbon burning that they could be found liable ...

    No doubt these folks laughed it off and sent it to their inhouse attorneys... but the D&O Insurance policies that cover directors/management from suits -- normally have exceptions due to misconduct and pollution... which should make a Director, etc... sit up at night and think about that .. especially after the what happened to the tobacco industry...

    Here`s how fossil fuel gets hurt if they lose the science debate --- from the article...
    `...A key element in the liability picture is the fact that 80 percent of the fuel reserves held by Big Carbon can’t be burned without pushing global temperatures well beyond the tipping point for climate catastrophe—yet stock markets use those reserves in valuing energy companies. But if legal action—or the threat of it—suddenly makes clear that hidden costs negate much or all of the value of these energy assets, then capital—especially pension funds and other institutional investors—may migrate to greener pastures.

    *** Did anyone read the article where the Rockefeller Brothers Philantropic Fund announced last week that they intended to divest the fund of all fossil fuel companies... And these are the grandchildern of John D Rockefeller the founder of Standard Oil...

    This has been happening for the last 20 yrs... price starts rising by March into early summer than begins falling... --- got to think it`s the refiners way of capturing that summer vacation traffic...

    I had dinner last month with a guy who`s ex-military and very pro-Repub ... he actually said that some people in his circle of friends are saying now that maybe they should have left Saddam in place instead of opening up that pandora`s box... He would have been one of the last people I would have thought would ever say that....

  • kcf_07757 kcf_07757 Sep 24, 2014 4:42 PM Flag

    He did a great job except for that one time in 2001.... and the fact that he devalued the dollar by 1/3rd it`s value between 2000 to 2006 -- hope you didn`t notice your wallet getting lighter back than... and in his refusal to regulate the oil speculators as oil jumped to $150 a barrel- causing another trillion to siphon out of our wallets....

    Yea.. he was one of our bests.... Which is why we never see him at GOP conventions cause he`s a ghost...

    Night bombing to start a war was done in Desert Storm and Afhganistan and in Iraq...
    The shock value is important psychologically to disoriented enemy troops...

    Could not have answered that post any better.... The Repubs are living in a fantasy land... of re-written history.... Which is dangerous asHell for the country...

    They did the same with Reagan --- they claim his admin was the one of the greatest in the 20th century and the model for Republicans going forward ... LOL...
    What they are really saying is that his first 6 yrs were good --- cause the last 2 yrs of his admin and the following 3/1/2 yrs of the Bush Sr admin were trying to overcome the greatest recession since 1929 up to that period --- under REagan 1100 banks were closed or forced by the gov to merge... and a whole new gov agency - the Resolution Trust Fund - was formed to liquidate the massive amounts of failed bank loans ... THAT IS NOT A SUCCESSFUL PRESIDENT...

    Yet we have these idiots today telling us they are proud Reagnites.... which just makes me laugh myAss off at their stupidity...

    And what did DubyaCheney do --- they took the Reagan economic model and doubled down on it... with even more striking failure....

    So now we have a GOP that refuses to invite or even mention the name of George Bush Jr anywhere in their political ads, their conventions, etc, etc... It`s as his 8 yrs didn`t even exist in Republicans history ---

    Which just proves that the Repubs live in a re-written history of fantasy.... and will never learn from past mistakes...

    11 thumbs down... I`m thinking these people haven`t looked at a newspaper or any indepth reporting in years...

  • Somali pirates ---- shoot them..

    Bin Laden ---- borders of ally doesn`t matter -- night raid and -- shoot him...

    ISIS ---- Now here`s a lesson in being smart !!!! ISIS threatens the Sunni/ Saudi power structure in the mideast .. so it`s a civil war among the same religious group --- Fools (McCain, etc ) would run in on their own and bomb them... but a smart man recognizes the political danger and not only forces the other Sunni kingdoms to back the effort but has them actually put men on the line as well as their finances... Than goes in and bombs them...

    You might not like old jugears.... but you got to admire his smarts...

    The unexperienced leader --- was Bush Jr.... who took out Saddam and loosened the genie out of the bottle... what we have now is a leader that`s trying to contain the damage... and even if his initial moves fail --- it doesn`t rule out ground troops --- it just says that that`s further down on the list before America recommits to putting troops back in the religious civil wars that are going on there....

  • kcf_07757 kcf_07757 Sep 23, 2014 11:11 AM Flag

    Guessing you didn`t hear the rest of the news ---- Syria was warned that it was going to be bombed before hand.... so that it wouldn`t send it`s war planes out...

    Besides last month Assad was putting out calls to the Admin that it wanted to work together to fight ISIS.. but the Obama admin turned him down... stating that it would attack as it saw fit without the Syrians... I don`t know if this was political PR for the US market... but it surely must have been a heads up to Assad that he could expect a massive attack on ISIS --- especially as the media wasn`t shy about talking how Obama was assembling a number of Sunni countries in back of him to attack ISIS...
