Senators Crafting Iran Sanctions Legislation In Case Deal Fails

Commented Nov 26, 2013 at 12:08:17 in Politics

“The war machine in Washington and the defense contractors in concert with the Israelis are the one's who wrote up this bill that will go nowhere with Obama. They see the war winding down in Afghanistan and are looking to start another war somewhere else.To my knowledge Iran has never ever attacked another country. We need peace for a change.We spend more than all the worlds countries combined on defense. It is a waste. The war is here at home on our streets and in our schools and colleges. Murders daily..”

“Bill Nye is correct. In Texas they have the lowest graduation rate for high school in the country. It's about time they put educated people on the school board and also demand more of their students and teachers.Out of 50 states they are at the bottom in the country for graduation from high schools.”

“Many Republicans hate Obama and Obamacare. Many are closet rascists. But not all Have we all noticed all these mindless individuals do is criticize and do absolutely nothing to improve the program. They contribute nothing for the betterment of the country. They would like to see Obama fail and whatever he is for.They are against. These spineless individuals are a disgrace to the country and should be removed from office. I was a Republican for 52 years. I switched to Independent four years ago.

“What's relevant to my viewers says Kelly. I myself and many people I know have stopped listening to Fox years ago.. We all know they hate President Obama. What has Fox News done to contribute for the betterment of the country and it's people. They scream and holler and most of the time don't make sense. I don't know why this man went on Fox to get verbally abused by her.”

richcole on Nov 14, 2013 at 19:16:16

“Fox has more viewers than any other cable news. so somebody is watching.

and your question is ludicrous: the purpose of the news is to report the news accurately.

The betterment of the country IS served by honesty and real reporting on news programs. In that definition, the networks , cnn and msnbc fail miserably.Horribly, and pathetically.

THAT is why they don't get ratings.

At least Fox doesn't check with the white house before they air the news...THAT is not serving the people...that is the opposite of serving the people.

You seem very confused.”

“They're is a very easy way to avoid this. They have it in europe. You put tunnels underneathe the roads or highways so the animals can pass and repass at will. I have seen it in Switzerland, they are everywhere and in Germany also. They should do it in the United States. You don't have to be a rocket scientists to figure it out.It would save many lives of animals. It is also very inexpensive .”

“I do not listen to US news but listen to news by the BBC on my satelite radio. I get the unsanitized version and the real news. The US people are very ill informed on the news of the day. You get a few minutes of news and the rest is about sports. The world is crumbling and they are feeding us sports results. I don't watch sports nor do I care about the results. For true accurate news listen to the BBC or other foreign radio stations. You get all news and it is unsanitized. You then will know what's going on in the world.

That's only because they bring to light the issues of the left that they either don't want to hear or don't want to belive.
