“Hollywood and Modeling magazines are not reality and have been foisting upon the American public the false image of what is consider sexy or perfect. Twiggy is a classic example, few Americans thought she was sexy, seeing all the ribs sticking out of a woman like she is an escapee from Dachau is not sexy! Jane Fonda was in good shape for her age but I am sure you can finds thousands of better examples of what was considered sexy in the 80s than her.”

“I will take exception with a few of the ones you have highlighted. Gorbecev was pretty well respected in the US and most of the fun poked at him was his birthmark on his forehead. Kim Jong-Il is responsible for several million deaths, many from starvation in his country. He has run concetration and execution camps for any who oppose him or even seek to leave.Putin has stated he wants to restore the Soviet Empire and has jailed and assinated his critics. His anti-gay policies are well documented. Ahmadinejad said they have no Gay people in Iran and the reason is that they arrest and execute them. He denies that Hitler exterminated 6+ million jews and that Isreal should be wiped off the face of Earth. Iran is the largest supporter of terrorism in the world currently. If you can't find material for legitment criticism from their actions you are more forgiving then they are or would be to you.”

“Dennis, I said that it doesn't make it right. But you are making my point. We think that those leaders are evil... just so you know they think we are evil. We mock and defame those that we don't like, they are doing the same thing. Whether you like it or not, there are many that hate us because of what we stand for.”

“Thats odd in the past 2 month less than 200,000 jobs were added to the economy yet the uneployment rate went down from 7% to 6.6% thereby making it seem that these two numbers are in conflict with reality. BLS states approximately 300,000 jobs must be added to change the unemployment figure by.1%, therefore the number of jobs in the past two months should be 1.2 million added to account for the decrease of .4% in the unemployment figure unless other factors are the cause in the decrease. If you are unemployed and are not collecting unemployment and have not looked for a job in the past 4 weeks you are no longer counted as being unemployed. We were told that 1.1 million people lost their extended unemployment when Congress passed and the President signed the budget agreement before the 1st of the year. So if we add 188,000 jobs in the past 2 months and the 1.1 million who lost extended benefits it totals 1.288 million or the number cited by the BLS that would account for the lowering of unemployment from 7% to 6.6%. No wonder 70%+ of Americans outside of the DC area think we are still in a recession while we have been told we have been in a recovery since June 2009.”

“Not every individual makes exactly the same money as everyone else working the exactly same jobs. Ever thought about seniority, higher education, and more experience? Stduies have shown that the White House only pays its female workers 87% of what its male workers are making in the same positions. I think that would be a good place to start.”

“The article shows that 2% of all those on deathrow are females but only 1% of all executions are females, 1400 executions and she was the 14th woman or 1 woman for every 100 men executed. Therefore, where are the feminists demanding exection equality? That means that women on death row are 50% more likely not to be executed then men on deathrow. I say it is high time for a march on the states capitols who still conduct executions and demand equal treatment for equal sentencing. Or was there a reason why the statue of justice is a woman holding the scales?”

“Libya finally destroyes its Chemical weapons, Syra has only destroyed 4% of theirs, thought they pledge to do it. However, the media during the Iraq war swore Iraq had no chemical weapons. Seems odd that many of its fellow Arab countries had them and that Saddam, who had invaded two countries in 10 years got rid of all his before we invaded in March of 2003. The National ground Intelligence Center (NGIC), sent an open letter to Congress in the spring of 2006 asking what it should do with all the the Chemical and biological weapons it had in storage that had been found in Iraq to that date. The big lie wasn't Saddam didn't have weapons of mass destruction it was the media lied about him not having them.”

“Any life saving techinque should be used and I hope this bill is passed and signed into law. Having said that, I find it strange that drugs, using and selling are seen as desireable to be legalized and any penalties for using and selling ended or lessened, but now those who hold this view are screaming for blood from the people who sold this heroin to PSH. It kinda runs counter to their stated deisres of decriminalizing use and selling, because you can't have the use of drugs without the selling of drugs.”

“My adopted Haitian sons faced far more racism from fellow African-American students then from white students or adults. My youngest was getting straight As and then, because of my military duty we moved. In his new school there were a higher ratio of black students and they called my son an Oreo for doing well in school and did he think he was beter than them and he was acting white. It got so bad for him in that school he wouldn't tell people he had white parents or allow us to drop him off at school. Fortunately we moved again to a new school but he found a white female teacher was treating him differently. He said she was acting racist against him because she always graded him harder in French than his lab partners. My son is a native French speaker and never got an A and frequently got Cs in French I class. I am also aware that many Black atheltes or famous people who marry people outside their race are held up for ridicule and demeaned by other say why you couldn't find a brother sister good enough for you?”

“I though the Mellysa Harris-Perry defaming the Romney family for adopting an Afircan-American baby had ended with her apology? Oh this is another example of the racial prejudice at MSNBC they are apologizing for. I guess they, and many here, believe the only unfit family for a minority child is a conservative one. My wife and I adopted two orphans from Haiti, one is in the Coast Guard and cruised off of Haiti shortly after the earthquake providing support to the country of his birth. My other son graduates from his RN degree program in May and plans to return to Haiti to serve the people there. I guess I did a horrible job raising them as they seem to be biggoted, selfish deniers of their heritage ... NOT!”

“The house has passed more bills than the senate but they die in the senate the true obstructionists are the dems led by Harry Reid in the senate. When they had negotions on the grand budget plan last year the prsident wanted 40 billion in new taxes, the house said ok, then the President changed it to 80 billion and the house said ok again. The the President changed it to 120 billion and the house couldn't get the votes for it and negotiations ended.This was according to administration sources who told Bob Woodward and also what house negotiators said after the negotiations broke down. So when the President even lets the house negotiate he changes the goals until they are unattainable. The House has stoodfast against Obamacare and it appears they were right to do it since more people have lost their coverage 6 million than have even signed up which is somewhere between 2-3 million. I said signed up because when asked by congress a CMS official said the administration has no idea how many of that number have actually paid for their plans and has no way of knowing. According to the CBO, after Obamacare is fully complete 30 million people will still have no insurance. Also, according to CMS documents released to fire CGI, the healthcare.gov website designers, the entire system is on the verge of collapse.”

“The President said he was willing to act alone if he didn't get Congress to go along with his agenda. Even this heavily skewed, towards democrat, poll showed 67% of them want him to compromise. There are many issues on which agreements can be struck but with Harry Ried killing almost every bill that comes out of the House and the "my or highway President," it isn't always easy to compromise. For a man who ran a campaign in 2007-2008 against a President who he said exercised Presidential power to many times against the wishes of Congress and consolidated too much power in the Whitehouse, it appears he has been arguing against himself.”

“Her biggest regret as SoS. Funny those who wish to defend her from taking responsibility because she already said she takes full reponsibility. What she does not take is action. No one has been fired for the death of these 4 Americans, 1 Ambassador, 1 State Department Officer, and 2 former seals working at a CIA facility. What Hillary, Obama and Susan Rice told us all for weeks afterwards was it was the video. Now the truth is out, except for the NYT, that is was a terrorist attacks with support from AQIM and AQAP both who have Al-Qaida right in their names. Hillary is jungling chainsaws, when at her congressional testimony she said at this point what matter does it make if it were a video demonstartion or some guys out for a walk who just wanted to kill Americans? In the same breath she said we will have to wait for the investigation to be compeleted. However, the State Department ARB didn't even ask her or the echelon below her a single question; so much for a top to bottom review. Congressional testimony given by State Department employees stated it wasn't the lack of funds that requests by the Ambassador to restore sercurity were denied repeatedly but because they wanted to put a Lybian face on security. Well the face we got was of Lybian al-Qaida affiliated terrorist murdering our citizens at a US Diplomatic site in Benghazi.”

“Right, your article said exactly what I said. QE attempts to boost the economy with low interest rates and makes fixed income securities less attractive. The article added that hedge funds borrow and invest but I doubt that very much......they have plenty to invest without borrowing and the cost of any borrowed funds whether at 2% or 4% would be minimal compared to stock price movement (no one buys on margin for long term).”
