@Bluedogtalking Good lord--do you hear yourself??? There's NO ONE more involved in "financial engineering" than the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT! They've so corrupted the marketplace that the idea we have a free market, much less "unfettered capitalism" like a lot of lefties claim, is laughable. The regulatory regime and taxation in this country have created the very environment the left claims it hates--only the biggest and wealthiest can survive its ravages. The middle class and small business are doomed to shrink into oblivion such that we end up with a ruling class and the poor. But the left really LOVES this arrangement because the poor are far easier to force into the left's schemes than people who have a choice. The left is a sick ideology--and Democrats are fools for letting it control the party. It will not end well.

Such bs. Conservatives don't think the poor have it easy--and the first statement is far closer to the truth than the 2nd. My family was on welfare for about a year and we ate better than we did before or have since. Did we get to go out a do a lot of things--absolutely not. But there is NOTHING wrong with the safety net in this country despite what the left pretends. The only hungry people are those who can't manage their budget or don't care to. Housing can be an issue because of the dearth of Section 8 housing and 2-3 year waiting lists--but there are tons of apartments, shelters and hotels where you can stay (we were fortunate in this respect in that we already had housing). I'm a staunch conservative and will defend the safety net to the death--but that it's somehow insufficient or that people are needlessly going without food because it's not generous enough is just leftist mythology.
@KyleRitner @pauljacobsen1 Kyle--how old are you? Do you not see that the layers upon layers upon layers of government meddling in the healthcare system is what has led to the incredible increase in the cost of healthcare? Health insurance hardly even existed until the 50's. But costs didn't start spiraling out of control until Medicaid, Medicare, and a whole host of government regulation started intervening in the healthcare industry in the mid-1960's and it's gone nowhere but up since. Even the cost of Medical School is largely due to government loans that inflate the cost by providing easy access to funding. Get the government out of healthcare, and we'd be able to afford go to the doctor without insurance. Medical schools couldn't charge an arm and a leg for education and hospitals and doctors offices wouldn't have to have huge staffs to deal with the regulation. Try getting out and learning about the real world every once in a while.
11 months, 3 weeks ago on Reid says Obamacare just a step toward eventual single-payer system
Anybody who didn't think single payer was the objective of the socialists in our government (now, unfortunately, unabashedly promoted by the Democratic Party), wasn't paying attention to the structure of Obamacare. It was designed to regulate the insurance companies out of business from the get-go. The insurance industry was stupid to buy into it--like a wise man once said--"To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will."

@schneibster @commuted How's that posting job working for you schneibster? You obviously get paid by the post. Part of the propaganda machine already in place.
Hey--this Administration has been feeding the American public propaganda on an unprecedented level for the last 5 years through advertisers and so-called "news outlets" that regurgitate the Democratic Party line. Better they get AMERICAN propaganda rather than Democratic propaganda.
@noclue noclue--the only people in this country who accept bigotry wholesale in this country are you far left loons. If I believed half the crap you nutjobs yammer on and on about Republicans, hell, I'd hate 'em too. But you're liars and manipulators of the uninformed and that makes you far worse than any Republican. Your ideology has made you mentally ill and you should seek counseling. Hating your fellow countrymen because they disagree with you politically is beyond sick.

What better National Security Adviser than someone who will say whatever she's told without any attempt to discern the veracity of the information she's fed. In reality, her empty-headed parroting is emblematic of this Administration. Carney, Rice, Clinton, Holder--they're all sock-puppets for Obama. It's really quite amazing that you could find this many willing useful idiots to fall on their swords lying for this crook.

@JamesCanning The video was a red herring. It had been viewed 200 times up until Monday and, IMO, is nothing but a convenient diversion for the Administration to try to avoid any responsibility. Al Qaeda has already announced that it was a planned attack in retaliation for the assassination of their #2 earlier in the month. I have no problem with assassinating Al Qaeda. And I expect some form of retaliation when they're able. The Administration obviously didn't. Why would they ignore warnings about a possible attack within a week of the anniversary of 9/11?
@Judie_Vc The only blame being assigned here is based on gross incompetence. Now if you want to assign that trait to the groups you mention, go ahead, but the bigotry will be yours.
@Judie_Vc How old are you?
@Judie_Vc @ConradCA If anybody's making anybody comfortable under their white sheets, it's hateful bigots like yourself, Judie.
@Judie_Vc The only people who hate America are the far left communists/socialists like yourself you can't make it without government handing you other peoples' money.
Ever notice how Barack Obama always manages to be totally clueless on issues, even those he signed off on personally, if they don't benefit him? Remember the gun control and abortion questions he answered for that voting group in Chicago that bore his initials, but he claimed were perfunctory? And the pattern continues ad nauseum. NOTHING is this President's doing unless it somehow benefits him politically. He's the epitome of the immaturity, incompetence, and radicalism of the left in this country today. Had the press not colluded in covering up his past, he would have never seen the White House the first time around. I don't like Romney except for the fact that he's the polar opposite--competent to a fault, mature and decent, and moderate (if still too far left for many conservatives).
"Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and the Sikh community. This is a tragic incident, especially because it happened in a place of worship. Religious freedom and religious tolerance and fundamental pillars of American society, UNLESS of course, you happen to be a Christian and serve chicken sandwiches" State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said at Monday's press briefing.
