In regard to all those women hating GOPers in those Federal and State Legislatures who have been voting for those bills restricting birth control and requiring rape by instruments I would suggest they be required to have a rectal exam with a cattle prod which will encourage them to abolish those barbaric, stupid laws.”

It is a mystery why the President bothers with those press conferences since he'd get better questions from a kindergarten class.
If you want to know why Americans are forced to live in an Orwellian World of lies all you have to do is listen to these questions from these dimbulbs pretending to be reporters but have become nothing more then rumormongers or just repeating every lie politicians babble as if it was the truth with the result the American people are the most uninformed, misinformed and deceived people in the free world.”

There is no doubt that the 99% Occupy Movement will grow as more and more Americans come to realize that their country is no longer a Republic but is instead a Plutocracy owned and operated by the Robber Barons and their Stooges and defended, protected and supported by a fascist, lawless police state.
The fastest most ideal approach for the American people to regain their Republic would be to abolish the U.S. Government by pink slipping every elected or appointed official in the U.S. Government and letting qualified civil servants run the government until a New Republic is established.
After pink slipping those folks the people will have a trial in the U.S. Senate with the mass media invited to witness truth and justice and the American way which is the U.S. Constitution return this country to the rule of law.
12 citizens will be appointed to be the judges because America's corrupt, politicalized legal systems are the reason America losts its Republic. A special prosecutor will be appointed to prosecute every war criminal, human rights abuser, swindler and every conspirator that lied this country into a war of aggression.
America can only regain its Republic when the rule of law applies to everyone.”

The Robber Barons and their Stooges have succeeded in destroying our Republic because of their greed, corruption, endless wars and their police state apparatus.
There is no doubt these Robber Barons and their Stooges hate truth, justice, the common good and the Amercan way which is the U.S. Constitution and they have been spitting on the graves of all those brave men and women in America's military who died to establish our Republic and to keep it safe from foreign enemies who would destroy our freedoms and they kept their oaths even unto death but they could not protect their Republic from enemies from within like the Robber Barons and their Stooges and a corrupt legal system that allowed them to get away with their criminal activities and also ever increasing millions of apathetic, unconcerned, indifferent citizens that have refused to participate and vote in their democracy until only about 30% even bother to vote and all these enemies within our Republic betrayed those who gave the last full measure of devotion to their Republic because they failed to keep it!!!”

“Obama is asking the Israeli Government to play nice with their neighbors and considering their numbers it would make alot of sense. Actually Obama is just one of many, many American Presidents during the last two generations who have made such a request and the Israeli Government has made damn fools of every last one of them and the results have been disastrous for the Israeli people and the American people and if just one of these American Presidents had the guts to just say to the Israeli Government; "if you don't play nice with your neighbors the U.S. Government will no longer play nice with you!"”

JehudahBenIsrael on Mar 24, 2013 at 09:22:25

“"... and the Israeli Government has made damn fools of every last one of them..."

It, Israel, by making fool s of them, made the 1978 peace offer, i.e. the Begin/Saadat one. It, the Israeli government, made the 1995 Contour-for-Peace as stated by Israel's then prime minister, Mr. Rabin. And, the Israeli government, along with Mr. Clinton, made the 2000 peace offer, i.e. the Barak/Clinton offer. That terrible, horrible, no good Israeli government made the 2005 gesture, and followed up in 2008 with yet another peace offer, the Olmert/Bush peace offer.

With so many peace offers, gestures and opportunities presented, therefore, one wonder, on what basis does the poster made such a statement...??”

“Yes, the Martin case needs to be investigated. So Zimmerman has been arrested for the second time. We don't know all the facts yet. The simple answer would be two people believing in "stranger danger," assuming the worst first. Let's hope we learn something useful and preventative from a thorough investigation.

At the same time, I doubt you have had the experience or know closely anyone with the experience of having life threatened by an armed, dangerous person willfully trespassing on property or an animal easily capable of killing a human being coming through a window despite all effort to warn off the non-homo sapien. Bears kill, pack hunting pit bulls kill, paranoid and armed meth freaks kill, and bless you with continuing good luck so you don't think about the utility of having something that makes a loud banging noise. Sometimes law enforcement or appropriate protection may be from 20 minutes to hours away, and waiting is not an option.”

TruelyFedUp on Apr 10, 2012 at 08:15:21

“The revolution must come now - not after the deaths.

From the Declaration of Independence;
"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security"”

“TRUTH BULLETIN: THE POST OFFICE IS NOT BROKE AND IT HASN'T TAKEN ANY OF OUR TAX MONEY SINCE 1971 AND IN THOSE 4 YEARS OF SO CALLED LOSSES THE SERVICE ACTUALLY PRODUCED A $700 MILLION OPERATIONAL PROFIT.
Due to a 40 year old accounting error, the federal Office of Personnel Management has overcharged the post office by as much as $80 billion for payments into the Civil Service Retirement System. This means that, far from being a drain on the public treasury, USPS has had billions of its sales dollars erroneously diverted into the treasury. Restore the agency's access to its own postage money, and the impending "collapse" goes away.
Each day, six days a week, letter carriers traverse four million miles toting an average of 563 million pieces of mail, reaching the very doorsteps of our individual homes and workplaces in every single community in America.
Postmaster Donahoe comes up with the following appalling solutions to the USPS's nonexistent financial problems: closing 3,700 post offices, shut down about half of the 487 mail processing centers across the country, cut more than 100,000 postal jobs, restrict mail delivery to 5 days a week by eliminating all Saturday postal services and do away with the agency's 40 year standard of next day delivery of first class mail, replacing it with a lesser goal of two days or more which proves Donahoe is an idiot and should be fired.”
