“Boehner and Cantor are just 2 members of Congress. The Executive Branch is running the country right now. He is violating the law. He is not consulting Congress as required by law. So while what you are trying to say is true, this President is not following the law. Those that violate the law are criminals. So right now we have a criminal in the WH.”

“A liberal paradise would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free comprehensive h
ealthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only law enforcement has guns.
And believe it or not, such a place does, indeed, exist: It's called prison.”

“Except that is not a Liberal paradise, it is a socialist paradise... Too bad the right wing media has confused you on this point. Of course a conservative paradise would be a place where a few people are in charge of everything and can rule without regard for anyone. Everyone else must either take what the oligarch is offering to survive or take their chances in the street.... Hmmm. That sounds like fascism, Oh no it can't be because calling a conservative fascist is like calling a liberal a socialist, right?”
“The IRS does not request you pay taxes. And a cop does not request you put your hands in the air. THEY TELL YOU. These restaurants are requesting we not bring our guns there. I will discreetly disregard their request and continue carrying concealed as I have been doing for decades. And that will be none of your, or their business.”
“It says we request. I will continue to carry in there concealed.”

“If I knew you were there I would leave.
Just the fact that you think you need to walk around with a weapon tells me that you have issues.”

“The IRS requests that you pay your taxes and a cop can request you to put your hands in the air. It is a little more than a mere request slick... If you want people to honor your decisions that you make about your privately owned property and rights you better respect theirs. This just shows you don't have enough training or responsibility to be carrying concealed.”
“Obama ws President, Pelosi Speaker of the House and Harry Reid Senate Majority Leader. WHAT DID THOSE THREE DO TO FIX PROBLEMS AT THE VA???? Obama just said he knew about these problems when he was a Senator. So again, WHAT DID THOSE THREE DO????”

“You mean ALL 24 days they had a super majority in 2009 while the GOP economy was tanking?
Democrats only had a filibuster-proof majority for 24 working days during that period. Here are the details:
“It is NOT a funding problem. It is a problem of incompetence of leadership. And now barack will have us all facing problems like this thru his misguided obamacare mess. This is a glimpse into the future of our entire health care system thanks to Obama, reid and pelosi.”

“Nope, this is the face of 30 years of Libertarian and Conservative partisanship trying to pass itself off as leadership. Most of the people in senior leadership positions will undoubtedly have an (R) next to their names, as they exhibit most of the traits of the republican brand, lying on reports, scheming on how to hide their malfeasance, how to make sure they qualify for the next round of bonuses, how to cower their employees so they won't rat them out ...........
The VA is governed by Title 38 of the United States Code, and who proposes, debates, and passes legislation ? The House of Representatives, and the Senate, that's who ...... And which organization has been in the hands of the Republicans for the last 16 years? The House of Representatives, well, give or take a couple of years here and there ...... The House has routinely voted down increased funding to the VA since GWB was in office .....”
“Obama said he knew about these problems when he was a Senator. SIX YEARS as President and he has done NOTHING. DIRELECTION OF DUTY!! And don't blame the GOP either. He had both Houses of Congress the first two years of his Administration and still did NOTHING!!”

“This administration has done more than any previous administration. Its a problem that isn't easily solved and has now hit critical mass... because members of congress want to get on TV.”

“2001, the General Accounting Office issued a report warning that wait times for medical services at VA clinics were excessive—and dangerous.
Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would have built 27 new VA facilities and clinics in February.”

“Really Kevin??? They cut the backlog in half changed over the whole system from paper to computer. I blame people like you who Vote for worthless republicans that don't care about our veterans. If only bush cared about our troops as much as president Obama does we would not be in this situation”
HJLester on May 30, 2014 at 12:00:09
“Bush sent them into a war based on lies without body or vehicle armor. He also knew about the failures at, for example, Walter Reid hospital. What did your side do for veterans except create new ones?”
“Obama stated he knew about these problems when he was a Senator. The first 2 years of his Administration Reid was majority leader and Pelosi was Speaker of the House. What EXACTLY did those 3 do to fix the problems Obama just admitted to knowing about when he was a Senator? This falls on Obama and he should be held accountable. But he wont be.”

“Oh Oh Kevin, be carefull with facts. Libs don't like them. That's OK though, the response will surely be the classic liberal throw more money at it.”
