Make them toxin free. History will show that that...

    It's easy for people--with the possible exception of Jeb Bush--to say that they would not have supported the invasion of Iraq knowing what we know now about WMD there. But Chris Matthews took things a foolish step further on this evening's Hardball, actually claiming that "there was no intelligence they had a weapon. Never was." Really? So Hillary, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy et al. were collective fabricators when they issued dire warnings, based on the intelligence they had seen, about Saddam's WMD?

The shooting involved two men and happened on Lake Mary Boulevard, police said. Officers at the scene said it appeared Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound, Bracknell said. In January, Zimmerman was accused of assault by his girlfriend, but no charges were filed after she recanted her allegation. He was also arrested in November 2013 on domestic violence allegations after his girlfriend called police. His girlfriend later recanted her story and charges were never filed.

She cited the fight over a recent child nutrition law as an example.

This is one of the websites that Barack Obama has used to circumvent mainstream media, let alone conservative media, where he might actually be asked a challenging question every once in a while.

    President Obama has brought nothing to the presidency except his Marxist theology I won’t be around to see it, but I have little doubt that future historians and others will conclude that President Barack Hussein Obama was the worst President ever to serve in that office. The reason is simple enough. His decisions on domestic and foreign affairs have already demonstrated his astonishing incompetence. His major contribution may in fact be to ensure that the voters elect conservatives in the next two or more elections to come. If he is remembered for anything it well may be the emergence of...

But they should have that choice, he said. Tillis raised the issue when speaking Monday to the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington. Restaurant chains such as Starbucks should be able to skip obligatory hand-washing by workers, he said, "as long as they post a sign" and take other...

He criticized former Texas Gov. Rick Perry for his executive order mandating that Texas children receive the HPV vaccine. “I’m not anti-vaccine at all,” Paul said, but “I think that’s a personal decision.” Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2015/02/rand-paul-vaccines-114834.html#ixzz3QhA3J7zr

Obama [said] that the shrinking of wages and income as a share of overall GDP had caused an “undertow” of pessimism, despite the improving economy, and said giving workers a raise would benefit corporations, too. “When wages are good, and consumers feel like they’ve got money in their pockets, that ends up being good for business not bad for business,” he said.

    When Rick Perry stumps for businesses to relocate, at least he’s cheering for his home state of Texas as the final destination. In Minnesota, we have the unusual experience of having a governor laud a corporation for moving its headquarters out of the state — and out of the country. Medtronic, a leading manufacturer of medical devices, acquired an Irish firm in the same sector, but will move its corporate headquarters to Ireland rather than transfer Covidien’s executive operations to Minnesota (via Gary Gross): “As I look at the project as governor of Minnesota, this is a good deal...

    William Devane (IMDb page), who plays “President James Heller” on Fox’s prime time 24: Live Another Day, told USA Today that “obviously I’m a big fan of Obama, as a guy who’s smart and articulate” and, in his acting, “I say to myself, ‘what has got to be going on in the private side of this guy’s brain’ – the pressure, the racism that is thrown out — and he handles it with such dignity.’”
  • Michelle Obama will give the White House´s weekly radio address to demand justice for Boko Haram

    President Barack Obama is punting his administration´s outrage over Nigerian terror group Boko Haram´s violence to his wife Michelle, giving her the duty of delivering the White House´s weekly radio address on Saturday. The move is an unusual one but not unprecedented: Laura Bush gave a similar address in 2001 when she was first lady, denouncing the treatment of women in Afghanistan. Mrs. Obama has also joined the president in a few radio addresses, but Saturday will mark her first solo appearance. She will also reportedly include a Mother´s Day message. Boko Haram, whose name is a native translation of...

    I like Putin. I think he is doing a good job. I like him much better than I like Obama. Funny, ain't it - an old anticommunist admiring the former head of the KGB?

    In a seemingly contradictory statement, a Utah State University study has linked global warming to the unusually cold winter that the United States has just gone through. Simon Wang, Assistant Director at the Utah Climate Center, was the main author of the study. He made several connections between climate change and, some have stated, "volatile" weather that has gone on over the last year. One is the increase in drought over large portions of the United States. “We are always going after extreme events — meaning the cause of it and the impact of it, and more importantly, how we...
  • What Names are left for Chelsea's Baby?

    Poor Chelsea. There aren't many untainted names left for her to name her baby. I think if it's a boy, she will be left with more options. For a girl, there are just so many names that dredge up bad memories. Monica is obviously out. Jennifer, no matter the spelling, simply wouldn't be appropriate. Barbra, Markie, Elizabeth, none of these appropriate. Cute baby names like Dolly or Sally won't even work. What about the great classics, like Kathleen, Linda, or Deborah? Very much out. Paula? Don't even think about it. Even some of the more ethnic and unusual names like...

    Breitbart TV ^ | 4 Apr 2014
    Appearing on Fusion's "AMERICA with Jorge Ramos" Thursday night, HBO's “Real Time” host Bill Maher slammed "insane" Republicans for what he perceives as a sick love of guns. “Of course, I think the Republicans are insane about guns, because they love guns, which is a sick position to have in the first place, to love something like a gun? I don’t love my gun, I have it the way I have, you know, antibiotics. It’s not something I love, it’s something in case of an emergency that I might have to use.” “One party loves guns and one party likes...

    How do you turn a fine, upstanding, conscientious and goal-driven young man into a terrorist? By fiat. That is, by treating him like a terrorist. That is, treating him very badly. Drop the whole weight of the law on him . . . for holding the wrong opinions. What opinions? you ask. Revolutionary Islam? White supremacism? Armed revolution? No. Self-defense. And now you may have figured out the problem. The hatred of self-defense, the absolute fear of it — the quivering, poltroonish over-reaction to the very idea — is common amongst today’s politicians, educators and even some benighted, cowardly law...
