“Getting to the bottom of what happened is a "Waste of Time" in your mind...go tell that to the Family Members of those who have died because of Obama's Policies!! I bet if it was a Republican in the Oval Office you'd be screaming bloody Murder, but since it's a Democrat your Hypocrisy is showing!!
Oh, and just for the record, I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat...but I do believe in getting to the truth of why it happened and why no one was sent in to try and save them from the Military!!”

“What bottom? How many more investigations? The GOTP wants there to be "something" but there simply isn't. Obamacare is going along quite nicely now and therefore, you don't hear the GOTP bi*tching about that much anymore. But, there is still BENGHAZI and all those out there with IQs of a room temperature (their base) will get all riled up. They (GOTP) got nothin'! No ideas, no real solutions to anything -- nothing but to rag on this POTUS.”
“I hope that all of the Surgeries that you have to go through will eventually remove all of the Tumor, and your face returns to you as you remember it. God Bless You!! Stay strong in this battle, I know it's not an easy fight, but in the end you will endure it and come out a stronger person.”

“Thank you so much.My swelling is going down but I am thankful I survived the surgery. It was 19 Hours at the Univ of Maryland Hospital. I wear glasses because I do have some sensitivity to the stares..lol I thank you for your well wishes. They mean the world to me. I appreciate it !”
“The biggest problem we have in America is the Federal Reserve, Central Bankers, and the U.N. but those topics can be saved for another day.
The 2 things that need to be changed right now are the stupid number of Regulations being passed that are killing American Jobs and the PPACA which ONLY benefits the Insurance Companies and not the American People. I think that Congress should be constrained by a Constitutional Amendment that states that they can NOT exempt themselves from Laws they pass for their Constituents. How many Politicians have actually signed up for the PPACA? Short Answer...NONE!!
I also think that we should build a "Dorm" and a "Cafeteria" for all of Congress and force them to live in the "Dorm" while in Washington D.C. so that we can cut their salaries down to $16,000 a Year and set a term limit of 12 years total in Congress (either 6 terms as a Representative or 2 terms as a Senators, or 1 term as a Senator and 3 Terms as a Representative, etc...). I would also like to see them not be able to vote for anything that benefits them directly or use a Federal Agency yo do their Private Bidding....and absolutely be banned from trading on the Stock Market at all!! Being in Public Office should be looked at as being an Honor and Duty, not as a way to get rich.”
“I have no problem with Immigrants who are here LEGALLY, it's the ILLEGAL ones I have an issue with. I also have issue with the fact that elections can now be "Bought"...Corporations and Unions should have ZERO say in our Politics. I also have a problem with Politicians who don't follow the U.S. Constitution...and I don't mean just parts of it, but they must uphold the entire Constitution as it is written!! Yes there are portions of it that I disagree with, such as the 14th Amendment being used for "Anchor Babies" when it was intended for the Children of Freed Slaves after the Civil War, yet the way it is written it doesn't specifically mention that it was meant just for the Freed Slaves and their Children.
As to the Budget, yes I think reforms are needed for the "Safety Net" Program, yet I also realize that there are places in the Military Budget that can be cut that wouldn't Combat Readiness (and I am a Veteran with Numerous tours of Duty in Iraq (3) and Afghanistan (2))”
“As to your final comments, you're in error. I say this because under Reagan there was Immigration Reform including Amnesty with a promise by Congress to secure the Border. While the Amnesty went through, the Border was NEVER secured!! It still leaks like a sieve today, and this Administration has proven it has no intention of Securing the Border. This is evident by Obama and his Administrations failure to follow current Immigration Laws!
There was Legislation put forth to reform the "Safety Net" Programs in the Republican Held house, which passed the Reforms, yet the Senate under Harry Reid refused to allow it onto the Senate Floor for a vote. Reid has done this exact same thing with Jobs Bills passed by the House, Budget Legislation passed by the House...pretty much everything Harry Reid disagrees with, never makes it to the floor of the Senate to be voted.
Stop with the Left/Right stuff. The problem is the current Politicians in the Entire Federal Government including Political Appointees who are corrupt as all Hades, yet no one on either side of the Political Aisle holds them Responsible!! It would be nice if we had an Attorney General who actually did his job instead of Politicizing everything.”
“5) Obamacare or the PPACA does NOT work!! Just look around the Country at how many Hospitals are closing, and Doctors Practices are also closing because of it. What we need is Health Insurance Reform, setting limits on what they can charge for Coverage, reduce everyone's Deductibles to a manageable level instead of $10,000 to $15,000 Deductible set the Deductibles at $1,000 and $5,000. Increase Doctors payments for medicare and Medicaid and instead of just paying them for services rendered when a person is Ill, also give them a Bonus each year for Patient Healthcare Prevention. People also need to be able to purchase their Healthcare Nationwide, and not just from the Insurance in their States...We also need a Federal Law that forbids Insurance companies from turning people away because of Preexisting Conditions.
After the Healthcare Insurance Reform, we need to tackle "Tort Reform", and put limits on how much a person can Litigate from a Doctor or Hospital...such as a $5 Million Dollar cap. Doing this will also bring down a Doctors Malpractice Insurance which in turn means they can charge less for Care!! Although there does need to be oversight for Doctor who are sued for Malpractice numerous times to see if they should retain their License!”
In order to get the Country back to work, we need to stop all these Useless and Job Killing Federal Regulations that this Administration is pushing without consent of Congress. There is 1 New Federal Regulation created every 2.5 to 3 Hours every day!!
4) Immigration Reform...sure, how about closing off our Borders first, er have State Parks in Arizona that are closed to U.S. Citizens because the Drug Cartels use those State Parks as thoroughfares, yet the Federal Resources were squandered in Nevada at the Bundy Ranch instead of putting a Lien on his Cattle or Property!!! How can you even consider giving a "Path to Citizenship" to those who have broke the Law to get here?? They also receive Federal Aid, Free Healthcare, Free Education, Foodstamps and more, even though it is against Federal Law to do so!! How about getting the approximately 100 Million Americans back into good paying jobs before even considering worrying about Non-U.S. Citizens. The Federal and State Aid Given to Illegal Immigrants has reached the $100 Billion mark and is increasing, when that money could be spent on U.S. Citizens!!”
“To Answers to your points...and while I am a Conservative, I do vote for Conservative Democrats as well as Conservative Republicans, who FOLLOW THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. Now that that disclaimer is out of the way...
1) Remove "Common Core" since it is dumbing our children, and filled with inaccurate Information!!
2) There is a "Gas Tax" on each Gallon of Gas/Fuel that you get, we need to have Politicians from both sides of the Aisle stop taking funds that are "Earmarked" for one thing and used for another.
3) I agree with a "Balanced Budget", and I am not against removing "Entitlements" for Oil Subsidies, Jet Liners, etc. Yet you do have to realize that the Federal Government has spent over 58% of all Federal Spending in 2013 on Safety Net programs. They need to be reformed in a way that the Poor and those below the Poverty Line aren't affected as well as those receiving Disability. Yet there are others who are using it as a "Lifestyle" and refuse to even look for a Job even though they are Able-Bodied.
We also need to stop sending money to foreign countries who claim to be our "Allies" yet are a nest of Vipers!! Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, England, Ukraine (Illegitimate Kiev Leadership), Ethiopia, etc...”
“There is yet another option that you have failed to take into consideration.
+ That people actually did research on the Person in question during his tenure during his Political Career, and found that his "Policies" and "Statements" that he made prior to and during his running for President are not in the interest of the United States and it's Citizens. As an example comments such as "if I have my way, Energy costs would definitely go up" or his position on allowing Doctors to sever the Spinal Cords of babies that survive Abortions...these are just 2 examples, and there are many more available to those who wish to do the Research.
There is also his associations with groups such as the Communist Party U.S.A., and his association with known Socialists/Marxists. You could also look at his voting record while as a Senator and see that he never created a single piece of Legislation, but was instead handed legislation others created and told to sign his name to it, or just look at his voting record and see how many times he voted "Present" rather than a Yea or Nay.
You do realize that "Global Warming" is a fallacy and was created to increase taxes on the Citizenry as a form of Control. Yet "Climate Change" is real, and is a Natural Process the Earth goes through, and is not dictated by Man, but in fact is dictated by the Sun.”

“Let's review some of those policies and ask why the fRight Wing is against them: 1. Improved education 2. Restoration of the infrastructure 3. A balanced budget whose core isn't about finding ways to give the wealthy still more entitlements (tax breaks, discounts, ways to continue the $24 trillion already squirreled away overseas), while also removing the safety nets for American citizens on whose backs those fortunes were built. 4. Immigration reform 5. Health care ~~~~~~~~~ The way we know the fRight doesn't G.A.S. about any of those programs is because it's had nearly 6 years (and 8 years before that under Bush and 8 years before that under Reagan) to come up with its own plans, hasn't addressed even one, and disallows anything about reform of any kind even coming to the floor for discussion and debate, let alone be voted on. So no, nothing was left out of my post. Plenty was left out of yours, but I've included it, above, so you don't have to go back and add it now.”
“Oh yes, Women's Healthcare overrides a Child's Constitutionally Guaranteed Rights to Life, Liberty, and their Pursuit of Happiness....but hey, as long as the Woman can keep going out and get Pregnant multiple times and rely on Abortions not to interfere with her Partying and Sex Life, it's all good then right?
Did it ever occur to you the reason the U.S. is in the position it is right now is because of the decline of "Religious Morals and Values"? Funny how you keep mentioning the Woman and her Doctor...yet you're forgetting the is also a Father involved as well, oh but that's right you want the Federal Government to be your "Baby Daddy".
You do realize that Roe v Wade is an Unconstitutional Decision based upon Marbury v. Madison which states that ANY act the Violates the U.S. Constitution is Null and Void, and since your killing a child, you are taking away their Constitutionally Guaranteed Rights to LIFE, LIBERTY, and their Pursuit of Happiness.”
omobob on Apr 17, 2014 at 12:49:05
“> as long as the Woman.....? Becuase it’s all their fault? It takes two to tango. Roe v Wade is about a woman’s constitutional right to privacy and keeping the Governmnet out of the doctors office. ”

“children have the constitutionally guaranteed right to life even if it requires that they must rely on and use another's body parts to survive? Woo hoo, thousands of children looking for bone marrow matches rejoice as everyone in the country is forced to join the registry and donate. Or do already born children not hold this right?”
“Roe v Wade, in which "Abortion" became Legal is an Unconstitutional Act, and as such is Null and Void per Marbury v Madison. It is an Unconstitutional Act, because it takes away the Child's Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness which the U.S. Constitution was founded upon, and ALL Constitutional Laws are based off of. The ONLY Abortion that should be "Legal" are the results of Rape, Incest, and the Mothers Life is in Danger, all other Acts of Abortion are Unconstitutional and Illegal since the Supreme Court was not following the U.S. Constitution!!”
“And yet the U.S. Supreme Court Law violates the very things that the U.S. Constitution stands for: LIFE, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Roe v. Wade takes away the babies LIFE, their Liberty at the whim of a woman who couldn't keep her legs closed, and the babies Pursuit of Happiness. The ONLY time an Abortion should be LEGAL is in case of Rape, Incest, and the Mothers Life is in Danger.
Marbury v Madison: Any Act that is contrary to the U.S. Constitution is Repugnant to Law and is Null and Void!!”

“Please go away and come back when you understand the difference between and embryo or fetus and a baby.”
“No, the U.S. Constitution applies to U.S. Citizens throughout the World, especially when it is the U.S. Government doing the Abusing of the U.S. Constitution!! When will you ever get that through YOUR head?? My guess would be NEVER since you still have "Obama/Biden 2012" as your message.
Oh, but then answer me this, what do you think should happen to a President that orders the U.S. Military to Commandeer a Naval Vessel of another Nation in International Water? This is covered by U.S. Federal Law and International Law, can you guess what breaking this Law is called?”
“Can you differentiate between "Terrorists" and those who want to overthrow Illegal Western Puppet Government put in place in those countries just so the IMF could gain access to their Natural Resources? I bet you can't!!”
“Obama IS the Enemy of U.S. Citizens!! Do you even realize that he frequently invites KNOWN Terrorists to the White House, in violation of Federal and International Law? Explain that, if you can? Also explain why Obama keeps giving BILLIONS of Taxpayer money to KNOWN Terrorist Organizations instead of using that help out the U.S. Citizens who need it here.”
“The Drone Strikes were a violation of the U.S. Constitution, especially Cruel and Unusual Punishment, since they were NEVER found guilty by a Court of Law...even by a Trial in Absentia.

“LOL!! The US Constitution applies to citizens in this country only. What you do in another country is not covered under the Constitution of this country. When will you constitutional purists get that?”
“I have a great Idea...
1) Stop paying Congressional Members
2) Remove ALL of their Benefits including "the Retirement Golden Egg"
3) set a Term Limit of 12 years TOTAL in Congress (2 as Senator or 6 as Representative, or 3 as Representative and 1 term as a Senator)
4) Only Lobbyist allowed to see Congressional Members are groups such as AARP, DAV, and Constitutionally Protected Rights Advocates
Congressional Members should look at serving in Congress as a Duty, not a way to increase power, get Insider Trading tips, to promote a certain "Agenda"or to make Wealth!! They should also not be allowed to cast a vote on issues in which they personally have no first hand knowledge of...for Example take "Gun Control", how many people who have voted for it have been through a Firearms Safety Course or even fired a Firearm at a Gun Range with a Qualified Instructor teaching them? If you need an example of this just look at the video of Representative DeGette explaining why she wanted to ban "High Capacity" Magazines and "Clips". If you don't understand ask a person with a Firearm what I mean by it.”
“EVERY American Citizen is Guaranteed the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, except for Felons and those Adjudicated "Mentally Incompetent"....that means EVERY American Citizen should be able to have a Firearm on their Person whenever they wished for their own Protection, whether they Open Carry or Conceal Carry the Firearm...and to carry it about them in Public wherever they wished. If people are Hoplophobes (Fear of Firearms) then they can either choose not to have a Firearm themselves, move to another Country that Restricts Privately Owned Firearms, such as England (which has a higher Violent Crime Rate per 100,000 People than the U.S. does) or Mexico (Which has a higher Homicide Rate per 100,000 People than the U.S. does).
If someone is a Hoplophobe, that does NOT give them the Right to dictate whether another Person carries a Firearm or Not, since it is a Constitutional and Human Right to protect yourself!! It is a Right that EVERY American should use considering the U.S. Supreme Court has stated on numerous decisions that the Police do NOT have a Moral or Constitutional Duty to Protect you!! Want the Court Case for proof of this Decision??”
“Perhaps you should read this Harvard Study "Would banning Firearms reduce Murder and Suicide?"
Here, I'll even give you a spoiler alert: IT WOULD NOT REDUCE MURDERS AND SUICIDES!!!
There are more Organizations that just the NRA that disagrees with you, such as Gun Owners of America which DOES speak for the Gun Owner and not the Manufacturers as you claim.
With the U.S. Supreme Court also stating in Numerous Court Decisions, which I could offer to you the Court cases if you wish, that the Police have no Constitutional or Moral Duty to Protect you!! You also do realize that there was approximately 9,800 Firearm Homicides in the U.S. in 2012, yet there were over 200,000 people who's live were saved because they Owned a Firearm and very few of those times did the Person actual need to fire the Weapon. These are FBI Statistics...are you saying the FBI is wrong?”
“Really...could you explain then why the U.S. is ranked #1 in the World for Private Ownership of Firearms per 100,000 people, yet we don't rank in the top 10 Countries for Homicide per 100,000 people...nor do we even rank in the 25 Countries for Homicides per 100,000 people....heck we don't even rank in the top 100 Countries for Homicides per 100,000 people.
Why is it that have an issue with Firearms, where approximately 9,800 were killed by Firearms in 2012, yet you aren't raising issue with the U.S. Medical System, where over 200,000 a year die from Hospital Acquired Infections per the CDC, or over 100,000 die a year from Drug reactions, or 500,000 per year die from Medical Malpractice in the U.S.
That's 9,800 deaths from Firearms versus over 800,000 deaths from the American Medical System!! Where is your outrage over this?
Instead of creating new Gun Laws, why not enforce Criminal Laws instead. such as Longer Prison terms, No "Early Release" for Good Behavior, and actually using the Death Penalty when warranted such as for Mass Murderers and Serial Rapists. Did you know that in Democrat run States, that Criminals only serve an average of 58% of their Sentences in Prison? Yet in Republican run States they serve an average of 76% of their Sentence. Doesn't that seem odd to you, that Criminals are released back out on to the streets to commit more Crimes more often in Democrat run States?”
“That isn't a Court issue, that is a State Legislature issue. There are States that already had Laws on the books that specified that Insurance Companies couldn't turn down people for Pre-Existing Health Conditions before Obamacare was even passed. Oh, but that is a FACT and I know how much Liberals really hate Facts.”
“Where exactly in Article 1 Section 8 of the Federal Governments Enumerated Powers does it state anything about Same-Sex Marriage is a RIGHT....in fact where does the U.S. Constitution say Same-Sex Marriage is a Right?
It doesn't, and since it doesn't, that means it is a Power left up to the States and We the People of those States to decide if we want it recognized in our State or Not!!”
peedropaula on Mar 19, 2014 at 19:56:11
“Marriage, not to be confused with Holy Matrimony, is a legal contract requiring a license issued by the state. As such, it is inherently unconstitutional to deny same-sex couples the right to enter into such a contract that is afforded every other consenting couple of legal age.
It's called the 14th Amendment.”
cybersleuth58 on Mar 19, 2014 at 14:24:05
“First and foremost - our rights are birthrights. (NOT conception rights). They flow from the natural law and are given by birth. They exist whether or not they appear in the Constitution or any other document.
By way of example. if you are familiar with the writing style in the 1700's, you'd know the 2nd Amendment is NOT about private firearm ownership. It is arming of the militia.
BUT - as I said - fundamental rights flow from natural law - not from any document.
Have you even read the Constitution? How about the 9th Amendment??
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
The founding fathers being smart men, knew that the Constitution would need to endure. They knew American culture and society would evolve. A document crafted at any point in time can not possibly itemize the complete panoply of rights afforded to each human being.
The 9th Amendment was written to make clear - just bc a right is not explicitly WRITTEN does not mean that right does not EXIST!”

“isn't there something about being treated equally? we don't want special rights, just equal ones. ridiculous we still have to fight for this in 21st century.”
“The U.S. Constitution gave certain Enumerated Powers to the Federal Government in Article 1 Section 8. If it is not stated in that section, then the Power goes to the States and We the People and Same-Sex Marriages are NOT covered in Article 1 Section 8, so it is up to the State Legislatures and the People of the States to determine if they want Same-Sex Marriage in their State or not!!”
