    Bravo. Don’t forget “ObamaCare” with its narrow networks and sneaking out-of-networks anything goes costs. Turns out when you go to the emergency room their physicians may be “out of network”. Like you are having a heart attack but you have to make sure no one who helps you is in a positions to charge $100,000 [...]

  • I have no idea what Jon Walker will do as the 2014 or 2016 elections draw near. However, at FDL each poster presents his/her own views.

    I have never done more than respond to any posts, but you won’t catch me complimenting the lame AS$wipes who call themselves Democrats. I vote third party and AGAINST current Congresscritters. This is because I view them as war (think slaughter) and $$$$ loving worthless trash that once slid into office, sticks like dried up scum in place and is hard to dislodge. And that goes for the liberal fakes like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders as well as the more obvious disappointments.

    I appreciate the information the various posters make available to me. This article, for example, did a reasonable job of nailing why ObamaCare sucks.

    I say Holder is lots worse than Alberto Gonzalez .. more balls for doing what’s wrong in a big way and completely ignoring what’s right.

    He should be in jail for making sure that when the law is broke it stays that way if the breaker is some important rich guy, whereas when good moral people stand up to the government at great sacrifice to themselves he made sure they lost it all. Rotten man and the next AG will be at least as bad.

  • Point: In NYC lots of people who make very good money ride the subway system.

    Point: This was actually THURSDAY’s scare.

    When I heard this on FOX yesterday, I actually did start to laugh, thinking they had made up the most ridiculous thing I could imagine and were going to pretend to take it seriously for about 5 minutes, then yell “GOT YA!!”. Nope. They bought it big time. “Americans are scared tonight …” Blah blah “we have to destroy every one of these killers” (What, destroy our very own American military? NO, they meant ISIS. How dumb can I be???) “They’ve upped the ante” ..

    Taking this puppet, this cardboard fake head of government put there expressly by the USA who does not actually want any semblance of democracy in Iraq .. GOD forbid (did he/she?) seriously..

    Sure, then our government, which has stirred up fear already about ISIS coming over here by having various generals spouting about that “threat” waits until the news is well out and then pretends to walk it back.

    Obombem is a true Obumbler. I cannot imagine what state he thinks he is going to be leaving the Middle East in nor how he will ever be able to consider himself as anything other than the liar and slaughterer of innocents in chief. This fool could have rebuilt Iraq after our military destroyed it .. could have worked to get their electricity restored, their health care system working again, food for children, etc. He did nothing and now he is at the top of more murder.

    Oblabber could have actually been an agent for change, not by being “black” – he’s just as white and boy is that heritage showing – but by having decent instincts and by insisting our behavior mirror such decency. He is truly a failed president.

    This last scare is a real joke but nevertheless, Americans are taking it seriously. Bunch of chickensh$t unexceptional wimps.

    2014-09-26 10:23:53View | Delete

    Yesterday, the Iraqi prime minister supposedly said that ISIS was going to target Paris or New York City subway system!

    When I stopped laughing after I realized the TV commentator was serious (does the Iraqi prime minister actually have a channel into ISIS planning? Who did he say it to that happened to convey it to us? Is he giving TV interviews now? Is this third hand or fourth hand info or what?) I thought WOW, the CIA or State Dept. (same thing now?) must really be worried to start this new rumor. Maybe they are afraid someone will notice WE are the stone cold killers in the Middle East, not those militants.

  • “the next time Congress goes on vacation ..” GUESS WHAT?

    They ARE on a two month vacation right now. Did you actually think our murdering (lots, we claim, of bad) people right now would keep these sleezes from their biannual campaigning? While we examine our lousy leader’s lies let us not forget the quality of our other politicians.

  • Arab countries taking part in Syrian airstrikes look like our bought and paid for allies list.

  • The count of “advisors” and other troops sent to Iraq adds up to more than 1500. Now in spite of being in the military and getting combat pay, I don’t know that the president and others are counting all of these people, as some of them are supposedly protecting embassy personnel in Iraq (who we should just evacuate, really) or protecting the contractors who work there, etc. So maybe they don’t all count. But first it was 300, then another 175, then another 250, etc., latest one in Obumbler’s speech on ISIS and Syria another 500.

    The whole goal in announcing this in dribs and drabs seems to be to fool the American people … IT’s WORKING!!!

    None of these people in Syria or Iraq is a “threat” to us nor even our “interests” other than for oil and Israel. Too bad the darn president is such a flat out liar. Even if I disagreed, it would sit much better with me if he wasn’t continuing Bush II’s lies about our reasons for trashing the Middle East and slaughtering all those people.

  • In Oregon at the state level our Democrats are also bought. But the price is much less, a few thousand dollars in contributions will do it. And when they proceed to the national level, they stay bought but their price goes way up.

    I am totally sick of Democrats who promise to help the people as a whole by helping small business, making sure there are good paying jobs, etc. In other words, Democrats who are Republicans.

    I admire your optimism and faith in human nature, erik. I wish I could believe that Democrats are basically good people who inexplicably take a wrong turn … but they are mostly ambitious opportunists who are very good at finding value .. for themselves .. in any situation and in convincing people that their way (best for them) is the way to go.

    Politicians make me want to barf. And I am not sure most of our third party pols are better.

    No American troops on the ground … what about those 1,500 or so troops that Obama has sent over as “advisors”? Are they tied to hot air balloons? And how good are they as advisors if they are all hiding in a shelter somewhere and not “embedded” with the Iraqis? (Assuming they are not actually going out all by themselvsies and doing things, which I am sure they are.).

    We don’t have 1500 good Arabic speaking troops, period. So these guys are not all providing active advice, some are doing other stuff. Stuff we would call war making if we were honest. Does it really matter if they are like the girly girls used to be in our armed services and not in combat? And if they aren’t in combat and they aren’t in danger why are they getting combat pay?

    Obama is a liar. Obama is a liar. He proved it already. He was unfit for the presidency (just like the Republicans said) and he is a liar (just like the Republicans said). Not the first time we’ve been had by this guy with no integrity but it still rankles.

    And good Christians, if you are slavering for the slaughter of ISIS and people in Iran you AREN’T a good Christian. Stop pretending, use the new testament to start a fire on a cool night, and join the reborn KKK in demanding the death or removal of all Arabs from America.

  • Yes, Big Al. I noticed this too. Americans are absolutely totally solidly for bombing every last member of ISIS to oblivion before they come over here and destroy us. … Yep, I’m hearing it again and again. We are in danger. Our government must act NOW. Destroy every last one of them. Turn the desert into glass. And do Iran at the same time before they destroy Israel which they will soon.

    Not making it up. The intelligence of the average American makes me want to puke. Where is their sense of being had? And meanwhile … the Russians keep stealing our financial information followed by our money. NSA too busy butting into English business, tracking our every move and purchase (except for gun / related sales, can’t step on that 2nd ammendment) to go squash those Russian and African con artists that are stealing billions from Americans. (An actual REAL threat isn’t stealing millions terrorism?) Or is it the too busy setting up American teens with made up (by the FBI) terrorist plots to catch the crooks?

    Government is inept when we need them and agressive when they should butt out or leave us alone. You’d find it hard to layer on so many bad choices if YOU were making the decisions.

    Obumblerbot boooo … hisss … ftttt …. barf barf. Hopey and changey, Hill the Pill or Kerry the liar steps in. Our future is bright!

  • “She Who Feels Entitled” … would be a good name for a book or a move. Once was a movie just named “SHE”. Captures my perception of Hill the Pill entirely, except I always add “for no good reason”.

  • OldFatGuy, have you noticed how both you and I try to extract meaning from erik’s posts? Last week I even understood a post of his completely and thought (altho it was pretty incoherent) that he was actually gaining brain cells strung out in rows that could occasionally sustain thoughts.

    But no, he’s back to worrying that the Democrats may be weakening themselves in the November elections. And amazingly so, given how enthusiastic Americans are about killing more Muslims en masse. When you start a war 2 months before an election you give a big boost to the ruling party. Start a war a year before and reality may have started to seep in (unless it has been declared a big victory, of course).

    This is going to help Democrats so go back to whereever you came from erik. Too bad it’s more immoral slaughter. And totally UnChristian, all you Christian Moslem-hating Israel-loving whatevers.

    I think we should all go pick up ammo. When I moved to this small town there was one store in 10 miles selling guns and ammo. Now I have a choice of 4 places that I know of, not to mention that when I go to garage sales they are sometimes guns for sale … one was an AK-16 two weeks ago or some such. But even it wasn’t the guys best gun for us, according to him. He had something really big time there … probably good for deer and elk shooting or the occasional bear or cougar if they “threaten” me like get in the trash or exist when I spot them.

    Or, as our sheriff said, “If you are going to take a walk be sure to have a loaded gun on you as someone spotted a cougar last week” .. at which point I stopped taking walks because it’s those guys with the loaded guns and eager fingers that will shoot at any noise that I’m afraid of.

    Buy guns! This is how we can stop terrorism at home. And as another acquaintance said, “If we would deport every Arab and every Muslim maybe we would be safe in America”. (Not too many of them walking around with loaded guns in the woods here.).

    Forgot the part about how John Kerry is a flat out lie to your face liar. Counterterrorism? Exactly WHOM is ISIS terrorizing? Exactly how are they threatening us?

    BTW – thanks to Obama and Fox News et all (who said great minds don’t think alike?) most of the people I know, say 90%, DO THINK THAT IF WE DON’T DESTROY EVERY LAST MEMBER OF ISIS THEY WILL COME HERE. Believe it or not. So we should go to any lengths to stop them because by doing absolutely nothing to justify that point of view it is totally true and even if we must kill every Arab in hundreds of miles (and bomb Iran, too) it will save us! Every last one.

    As Michele once sort of said, I am ashamed of America. She stopped being ashamed when she grabbed the gold but I have now started.

    I personally don’t care very much for John Kerry either. But if Hill the Pill (who accomplished nothing as Secretary of State that I know of, even if things did go “smoothly” compared to the total messes we are stepping in now) does not run for prez in 2016, John Kerry will. Eeewwww! That creep or this creep. Feminista or sociopath? Which is which?

    Wouldn’t it be nice if there was some actual Democrat of stature that could come forward and save us? But wait …. your Obamabot has done nothing to nuture any true Democratic leaders, they are all scummy retreads of the Clinton days … and his other buds are crummy retreads from the Bush days. So all we got are creepy (your word) hasbeens.

    2014-09-10 11:39:19View | Delete

    Sure ObamaLLP has made Iran the devil. But give credit to Fox News. The current Fox mime is that O is focused on Iraq and Syria but is giving Iran a pass. And as Lou Dobbs put it last night “We can’t wait any longer to save Israel from the threat of Iran. The threat is now. O must act now.” That’s a paraphrase but his actual words were more compelling about how there was an immediate need to do something extreme about “the Iran threat to Israel”.

    Oh sure, what threat? Picky. Picky.

    All those neighbors of yours are probably watching Fox News so they know better than you about how O is misdirected.

    It appears, weirdly enough, that Fox wants us attacking Muslims all over the Middle East. They are either big into the defense industry, big into AIPAC, or just flat out evil.

    erik, your comment has the word “sincerely” in it. I will take you at that word and assume you are sincere and this is not snark.

    Yes, president Obama is just doing what he is told. But NOT because he is being blackmailed. He is just doing as he is told because that is how he sees the job, #1. And #2, he is completely incompetent to have opinions on just about everything he is required to be a leader on.

    It really doesn’t mean he is not a smart man. How many are competent to have opinions on how national security should be run, on our foreign policy, on the shape of healthcare delivery, etc.? He saw the office as one of compromise. Think about that carefully. That can mean the Democrats and the Republicans get together and come up with the best solution which he then buys into. In other words, they put the answer into his head.

    So that didn’t work out. But luckily he has political advisors plus nutsos like our NSA director who will tell him the answer to every question, based on political realities and their ideological bent. You can’t do this, we’ll lose the Jewish vote … you have to do that, or someone might criticize us for looking back … and so it has gone.

    Sure, few are happy with the results. But Democratic advisors would be quick to say this is the best of the possible. Because maybe politically for Democratic incumbents and donations to same it is the best. They should know.

    So don’t be so sure to give the president a pass because he’s being blackmailed. He’s got exactly what he wanted … many millions, his children at the top of the status heap, the real top of the pinnacle, fame, adulation, the most powerful man in the world and his beautiful first lady.

    The only losers here are us. And as Michelle O would indicate, who actually cares about us? Certainly not her. She wasn’t even proud of her country until they made O a candidate.

  • Why hasn’t our “transparent administration”, our bright hope and change nexsus, our first black president who is going to right the injustices wreeked on illegal undocumented immigrants, charged this border patrol agent with murder? Isn’t there enough testimony and evidence to at least charge him?

    Justice for immigrants — isn’t that why Obumbler is going to break aka ignore our immigration laws and give millions more Hispanics the right to live and work in our country even though they are all lawbreakers who snuck in illegally, worked illegally, used our education system and our medical system and grabbed various federal benefits (Section 8 housing for example)? Isn’t because he loves Hispanics as our great first black president?

    Or maybe he just loves ‘em when it’s politically a smart position for Democrats. And prosecuting border control agents who kill teens would anger all those gun nuts who believe the police/border control/our soldiers are heroes, every one, all the time. This administration has no integrity at all.
