10213/Republicans and Tea Party have proven once again they are neffective and slobbering fools-dumb & dumber, GOP & their idiot teabagger brethren- ybac/AL JAZEERA REPORTS QATAR USING SLAVE LABOR-fantastic way for the Arabian republic to profit from putting on the games. Great business sense! NO RESPONSIBILITY TAKEN-TO BUILD WORLD CUP FACILITIES, engineering, construction subcontractors being performed by Indian and Pakistan companies-Cantor is a pig, and he’s a pig with no loyalty to this country, passed his bill to cut the appropriation for food stamps by $40 million For Unemployed, Seeks Hike In Aid To Israel-Netanyahu Reportedly Tries To Scam The Haredi Draft Process Regarded by some as one of Israel’s most disingenuous prime minsters, Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly tries to create a law that would allow haredim to dodge the draft for 7 to 8 more years, at which point, haredim will be able to politically block the law's implementation-ultra-Orthodox Jews protested in Jerusalem on Thursday against plans to enlist men from their community into the military, a proposal supported by the secular majority pushing for a more equal share of the burden on Israeli society. rabbis warn that army service would irreparably harm their way of life-Not only is Benjamin Netanyahu a bad man opposed to peace with the Arabs, he is also, it seems, a criminal. Or at least that is the impression one might get from much of the media coverage on the "corruption" allegations-Israel is "upset and angry because it sees that its blunted sword is being replaced with logic as the governing force in the world, and because the Iranian nation's message of peace is being heard better, Rouhani said Iran would never seek a nuclear weapon and was ready to negotiate with world powers on ending a decade long showdown. Netanyahu told the same UN forum that sanctions hurting Iran's economy must be strengthened as the Tehran regime was hell bent on building a nuclear bomb. If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone. Hassan Firouzabadi rejected the Israeli threat of military action as an "act of desperation" by a "warmonger-ygs/wingers far too cowardly to default on government debt, two candidates, one who ran on repealing Obamacare and one who ran on keeping it. The guy who promised not to repeal it won. What exactly do you think is left to negotiate? If they did, on the very next day after the ceiling is reached, Social Security checks would stop, Medicare reimbursements would stop, all government employees, including the military, would see their pay checks stop, all government contracts would stop, not just welfare for black kids, Imagine the scenario, Social Security, Medicare and DoD spending all stopped on a dime. Personally, it wouldn't bother me a bit; I'd make a fortune picking clean the carcass of the global bond market. But imagine that really happening. Now imagine who the constituents would be who would be squawking in desperation. It wouldn't be the "liberals" as you and your thought masters imagine them-at 46 and playing hoops twice a week and keeping a healthy lifestyle negates the need for expensive healthcare. Hope you are enjoying yourself since they shut down the CLWR board, I cashed out with $144k-If you look at your tax bill in Sweden it might dawn on you that your health care is not FREE, assuming you pay income taxes-Obongo will negotiate with Iran, Putin, Syria or anyone else on earth, except Americans who disagree with him. He is more than worthy of scorn-maybe the Congress could hold their breath until they turn blue. Maybe that would somehow delude Obamacare of funding, wingers' plan to stop 0.0000000000001% of government spending is really starting to bring some pressure to bear-yc/THE GOP HAS BEEN DEVASTATED BY THE TEA PARTY CANCER, only have 14 months before Dems turn America into a slave state.

Typical dumb as dirt retardlican-Why rePIGphuKKKers were soooo desperate for a govt. shutdown, a fundamental showdown over the role of government in stemming rising inequality and making our country a fairer and more decent place, growing “weak” and has already become the lamest of lame ducks bo has work to do in quelling doubts about his leadership. GOP is clearly divided between those who take governing seriously, those who see in every issue the “final conflict” that Marxists kept predicting. Stopping Obamacare to prevent the country from reaching the end of the road to serfdom, fascinating, and this speaks to the perceived power of the tea party in primaries, is that it has taken only a small minority of House Republicans to push toward Armageddon. roughly 40 conservatives revolted against their leadership, 40 in a 435 House, What’s become of us when less than 10 percent of one chamber of Congress can unleash chaos? What does this say about the House Republican leadership gap?-being squarely blamed for the shutdown, tea party = american taliban cell-Tbillies"...ALL of them smarter, better educated and better people than YOU-yhal/ben stein republican nonsense, We Republicans started out the idea of universal health care, 1973, sent a message to Congress asking for universal health care. a perfectly good idea, allow it to be fully implemented and ultimately ruin the Democratic Party for generations not very smart-Jesus and Moses most likely never existed, and there is no evidence for any God. JINO Lobbyist-netanyahus speech plenty of bubble lipped faggots like you-can you be relavant without being an idiot? a born idiot who can't make a coherent statement without your 'signature' racist BS-maggot, a pig, a piece of shit, and a homosexual all rolled into one disgusting thing-bubble lipped" is racist but "thieving Jews" is not, for a cowardly little retard with shit for brains who's constantly yammering about hypocrisy-republican eyes wide shut nyp-Americans may not like Obamacare the way it is right now, but they want to give it a chance and see how it goes, Republicans are digging themselves a grave right now, but I still had to chuckle about how these Right Wing sources frame the amount polls on the support of Obamacare. They fail to state that 11-15% of the people polled who are against Obamacare, think Obamacare isn't socialistic enough-Hebron, Occupation’s Ugly Face, 80 percent of the total highway system in the West Bank, is prohibited for Palestinian use. Built on private Palestinian land confiscated by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), these highways bisect through villages, dividing families, and boxing Palestinians into enclaves often described as “Bantustans, a large Israeli settlement to the right: it has playgrounds, electricity grids, and an immense water tower. It’s as if a small strip of Southern California suburbia was airlifted into the throbbing heart of Palestine, A litany of armored vehicles is parked in a scanty valley littered with jagged, pale gray rocks. Soldiers sit atop the hills, binoculars in hand, M16s cradled in their laps. Squatting on their haunches, they appear to be focused on something deep in the vast panorama of rolling hillocks, Once we enter the old city of Hebron, the final stop is Shuhada Street, where some 500 Jewish settlers reside amid over 165,000 Palestinians. Nowhere in the West Bank is the suffocating air of the Israeli military so palpable. Of the over 350,000 settlers in the West Bank, those living in Hebron most frequently attack Palestinian civilians, and are quite possibly the most ideologically drunken band of theocrats that the Israeli colonial establishment has to offer, commonplace for the settlers to unleash indiscriminate vigilante force on the local Palestinian population. 1994, Baruch Goldstein, a New York born settler from the neighboring Kiryat Arba, robed in military insignia and entered the Ibrahimi Mosque. The mosque is home to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, an ancient relic holy to both Muslims and Jews. Goldstein opened fire on the worshipers, killing 29 and injuring 125. He fired until he ran out of ammunition, then was beat to death by the surviving worshipers. Since 1994, an estimated 10,000 militant Jews have made “pilgrimages” to his gravesite to celebrate the annual anniversary of the massacre. By no means, however, is the confrontation between two equal sides. Hebron’s settlers, vastly more aggressive and violent than anyone I’ve ever encountered, enjoy the rigorous protection of roughly 3,000 IDF We enter the South Hebron Hills and pass Susiya, a cringing village of tents and caves, where the residents have been displaced by military demolitions five times since 1985 soldiers One at a time, Germany, huh, My people have a lot of history with you. She passes without responding to the soldier’s subtle threat. an elementary school for Palestinian girls is blanketed in graffiti. “Death to Arabs!” one tag reads in crudely sprayed blue paint. “Gas the Arabs JDL,” “Palestine will be free,” another wall reads, “from the Jordan to the sea.” Someone has spray painted an X over “Palestine” and written “Israel” above it. Tagged underneath it is “Zionism is racism.” “Racism” also has a large X spray painted over it, replaced this time by “the answer.” Three checkpoints later, we enter the Ibrahimi Mosque, what the late journalist Christopher Hitchens described as a “supposedly sacred boneyard in a dank local cave.” All traffic in and out of the mosque is contingent upon the Israeli military’s approval. “What religion are you?” a soldier asks me, scanning the pages of my passport. “None,” I answer. “What do you mean?” “I don’t have one.” He looks at me suspiciously. “What religion are your parents?” “None.” “Grandparents?” he says, obviously frustrated “I guess they were Christian. We cross through the final check point and make our way to the market. After the closure of Shuhada Street, a small portion of the vendors were able to relocate one street over. The new market sits behind the settlements, however. After months of having large stones and other objects thrown from the settlements, the vendors constructed a protective net from chain link fencing. It does not protect from smaller stones, and it does not prevent urine or feces from being tossed down on the heads of those in the market, as a friend of mine quickly learned when a cup of urine flew from the window of a settlement and landed squarely on his head counterpunch-More Arabs and Muslims have been killed in 2+ years in Syria, than "palestinians" killed during 4 decades of "occupation". Not that I am complaining. I'm hoping the Arab spring comes to "Palestine" very soon-washingtontimes we must shutdown obamas big lie-Just like Palestinians, the Republicans lost on Obamacare and want a do over.

The fact is that Washington Democrats have slammed the door on reopening the government by refusing to engage in bipartisan talks. This is part of a larger pattern: the president’s scorched-Earth policy of refusing to negotiate in bipartisan way on his health care law, current government funding, or the debt limit.

The average wealth of the other 93 percent dropped 4 percent, from $140,000 to $134,000. At the end of 2011, the top 7 percent of households had 63 percent of the nation's wealth, a 7 percent rise just since 2009. The president's liberal base is restless, angry and dispirited. In this week's Bloomberg News poll, Obama's job approval among Democrats fell to 78 percent from 86 percent in June. But as long as Obama is president, the risk of Republican compromise seems exceedingly low, and the likelihood of continuing all out attacks, witness the blind lunges at Obamacare, exceedingly high.
