2 obama is going to war with both Congress and Israel in the next 4 years.

Report: Obama said 'Israel doesn't know what's good for it'
According to Bloomberg, when informed of Israel's decision to expand construction in E1, American leader 'didn't even bother getting angry' and said Netanyahu moving Israel down path toward near-total isolation

obama knows best.

No, but yesterday's presser was remarkable in many ways. He just lied his ass off and all but called out the Republicans as pedophiles. He may have come close to dong that in the past, but this time he made no bones about it. Yeah we here always knew what obama was like, but the mask is coming off, and the next 4 years will be war as I have said above

10 Am I the only one who really doesn't give a damn about the Lance Armstrong story? He's a fraud, but his Livestrong charity has done a lot of good for a lot of people. I say ignore him or use him as a teachable moment, but keep Livestrong alive and divorced from his legacy.

And aside from Rush and Levin, we have no one on our side who is calling him out. That's one big reason why Mitt lost. We have very few people in the party who can effectively attack the Dems AND promote conservatism. Allan West notwithstanding. I have hopes for Ted Cruz and Trey Gowdy.

13 >>He acknowledged that many people calculate that the risk of a side effect is one in 1 million against the one-in-10,000 risk of being hospitalized or dying.

>>But I believe the risks outweigh any benefit, Savage said.

He believes.

17 By the insanity of cthulhu, if one more person calls here today and says "Someone from there called me who was it?" without giving me any information such as, say, who the fuck they are, I am going to bitchslap people through the phone. Also, I am not really bad at my job because I do not know who it was who called you or why they called you.

I don't think it will go anywhere if he does submit it. It may make a splash in the news for one day with Faux laughing at it and the rest of the alphabets talking about the "extremists" in the GOP.


But there just isn't enough Republicans in the House with balls anymore. And even though Mr Scottish law is long gone, it would still die in the Senate.


The Democrats would not impeach Obama if they had a video of him eating live babies on the WH lawn.

Posted by: Vic at January 15, 2013 09:16 AM (53z96)

A call for impeachment may go nowhere, but the act itself is desperately needed to arouse a demoralized and increasingly indifferent people.

Whether it's about the gun-grabbing or the unilateral action on the debt ceiling, a call for impeachment is more than warranted.

"If we do not choose a hill to die on, the left will choose a ditch for us to die in."

27 Heh, reading the PA story is a laugh and a half, in the same way that "American Psycho" is a dark comedy. PA morons, I feel for you. I really do.

My sister is in PA, and she wants to get out of that state so badly it makes her want to scream. She works in Harrisburg, also known as the City of Sewer Sinkholes. We were chatting on the phone the other day and she mentioned the city's plan to request permission through the judiciary to take $4.5 million FROM the sewer and water fund to make payroll. That's $4.5 million from the fund intended to maintain and repair the desperately in-need-of-repair sewer and water system that is literally collapsing all over the city.

Talk about fucked up finances. The city is literally going to shit.

Rand Paul has come out and stated that any gun controls EOs will be fought "tooth and nail" because POTUS is not a king.

A friend told me yesterday that Rand called preazy "King Nothing", but I can't find the link to the vid or the statement.

30 Questions concerning gun control. When the commies reduce/eliminate the magazine capacity or the type of rifle we now legally own, could various governors and state legistatures form a militia and require volunteers who join the militia to have the banned rifles and magazines? Could this method be used to circumvent gun and magazine grabbing?

Oh good Lord, I HATE THAT. When I used to work in the clerical staff of our state's Health and Human Services department, one of our duties was to cover for the front desk receptionist when she took her break and her lunch. Whenever it was my turn, I always seemed to get phone calls just like that.

"Hi, I'm calling for Larry?"

"Okay, ma'am. Do you have a last name for him?"

"You know. Larry."

"There are many Larry's who work for the Department, ma'am. Can you tell me what division or bureau he's associated with?"

"Human Services."

"Can you be more specific, ma'am?"

"Human Services! Larry!"

"Ma'am, the department is called Health and Human Services, and we have over 5000 employees all over Concord, and even more outside of the city. So I need something more specific than a first name to direct your call."

"He said to call this number if I needed to reach him!"

"And I do want to connect you to him, ma'am, but I need more than a first name. Does he work in the Diabetes program? Drug Treatment? Tobacco cessation? Is he a lab technician? A social worker? Behavioral health?"

That's why I could never work the receptionist's desk on a regular basis. I would have gone insane.

32 Was Savage the originator of the line "Liberalism is a mental disorder"?
Because while at first sounding only like a garden variety political insult, it perfectly captures the repetitive nature of their compulsion to ignore facts and reason for self gratifying "feel good" sanctimony.

Whoever came up with it was a real pearl diver.

45 Yesterday I mentioned that I was not looking to buy an assault rifle. Rather I was looking for a self-defense rifle with a standard capacity, not "high" capacity30 round magazine. Expanding on that thought today, rather than black or olive, I'd like something in navy or turquoise or during cancer awareness month, one with pink contrast.
The debate flows from the language. Why acquiesce from the get-go to language that paints you in corner? Ask your reps if they are hot to ban self-defense firearms. Fight on your ground. Make the left try to distinquish the mechanical "differences" between an assault rifle and a self-defense rifle. I think they might be hard-pressed to do so.
Wife told me no one "needs" a 30 round magazine. I replied "Why do people buy 30 lottery tickets? Because not every one is winner."
