    I am not 100% sure what you’re talking about but I think we’re in agreement.

    There is one (and the same) God for Christians Jews and Muslims. These religions, taken together cover off over 55% of the world population, an overwhelming majority.

    So I just found it odd Mr. Jindal would say that in the end our (meaning Christian) God wins, which begs the question whose God does he think loses.

    I guess Reverend Jindal doesn’t realize that the major monotheistic religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) all worship the same God. Perhaps he was contrasting his God with the numerous Buddhist, Taoist, or Hindu deities.

    Of course the white house is just blowing smoke.

    The real reason they don’t want to meet with Mr. Netanyahu is that he’s a politically opportunistic chickens**t who is politician first and statesman second.

    Not to mention the fact that he is a disgrace to the history and memory of many former Israeli Prime Ministers who made difficult political decision to advance the peace process. Mr. Begin and Mr. Sharon immediately come to mind and off course Mr. Rabin paid his decisions with his life.

    Wow! Talk about clueless.
    After Afghanistan and Iraq you now want Yemen.
    You sir (or madam) are the personification of insanity.

    I am sure Al Qaida, or what’s left of it, would like nothing better than to be mentioned in every single speech the POTUS gives. This is invaluable to them from a recruiting and propaganda perspective. And Mr. Boring and the rest of the flying monkey right have become nothing more than useful idiots for them.

    Personally I’ve never heard of any of these characters until the POTUS interviews, but GloZell alone has one video which has over 45 million views and that’s without a daily radio show, or any prior cable news gigs.

    Bet she gets a Comcast channel before Mr. Beck does.

    Yes, yes, yes!

    You’re a bit late to the party, this document is all over the internet and is just further proof the right equates “urban” with dangerous minorities. This list is better translated as “urban renewal zones” and is merely a list of poor areas the government needs to focus more resources on. There are not “no go zones”. If anything they are “go more frequently zones” particularly for the police.

    Mr. Beck is just jealous.

    After all these three YouTube nobodies combined get tens of millions more views and are far more recognized and entertaining then Mr. Beck and his glorified subscription based YouTube channel will ever be.

    It’s really generous of Mr. Beck to capsplain the idea of free market capitalism to the Pope, but if he’d bothered to read the Pope’s comments he’d know that the Pope is not really anti-capitalism, but is more concerned about the growing gap between the wealthy and the poor – which is in fact actually happening.

    Pope Francis also decried “idolatry of money” and warned it would lead to “a new tyranny.”

    However, the line which drives conservatives nuts is actually the following….

    “Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naive trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system.”

    Of course Pope Francis is 100% correct on this since the vast majority economists who believe in capitalism and free markets dont buy into right wing supply side fantasies either.

    Wrong side of the country.

    I wish I actually had the opportunity to miss a New Year ferry. These days with 3 and 2 year old boys at home my last few New Years have been fairly boring.

    Sorry dude.

    It wasn’t me giving you the thumbs down.
    I’ll even give you a thumbs up just to prove it.

    And I don’t think your insights are that sharp. The so called rank and file or base has never been able to overcome the GOP establishment. This is particularly true in presidential elections (i.e. McCain, Romney, Dole). The only way they have a chance is during low turnout mid term elections.

    And even if you take 2014 as a sign of things to come that was more of a consolidation of establishment power and influence than a victory for the base. You can see in it Mr. Boehner’s new found confidence in dealing with ultra right wing of his caucus.

    Here’s the actual conversation:

    JB: You realize Mitt that both of us can’t run in 2016. We will split the establishment support, the big donors, the political endorsements not to mention the actual votes.

    MR: I’ve thought about this myself and you’re 100% right Jeb. One of us has to bow out in order to increase the chances that a Republican is elected president in 2016. There’s only one way to settle this.

    I’ll arm wrestle you for it and a $10,000 side bet that I’m going to win!

    The Times article which Mr. Emerson is using as a convenient crutch is an opinion piece from 2002 and is all about Jean-Marie Le Pen, the leader of the right wing National Front party and how she’s similar to George Wallace. (Btw, Ms. Le Pen is not too fond of Jews either).

    The article has one sentence referencing “no go zones”….

    “Yet Arab gangs regularly vandalize synagogues here, the North African suburbs have become no-go zones at night, and the French continue to shrug their shoulders.”

    Mr. Emerson said some have reacted to his comments as though he was “guilty of murder”.

    Yes you and FNC murdered the truth. And FNC continues to do it on a daily basis.

    One interesting thing about the great Canada Goose conservatives should like is that they are monogamous.

    They find a mate during their second year and most couples stay together all of their lives. If one dies, the other may find a new mate.

    FNC is not News.

    Its an expression of anger and victimization over the loss of absolute power and reframing it as a persecution of real Americans, by minorities, freeloaders, and socialists.

    And they read the chain letters your grandma gets in her inbox out loud like they were true.

    Stupid move by Ms. Hidalgo.
    Up till now FNC has been on the defensive, being called out (for once) by the British PM and others for their fact free reporting. Various anchors were forced to eat crow on air which must have been gut wrenching for Mr. Murdoch and the powers that be.
    Now Ms. Hidalgo has made it a legal or specifically a libel/freedom of speech/slander issue.

    This gives FNC an opportunity to rail against the Socialist Paris mayor and her effort to silence the press and this now becomes the story.

    I am actually with FNC on this one, they should definitely have the freedom to report fact free news stories, embarrass themselves, and be forced to apologize. And it’s the rest of the media’s job to mercilessly ridicule them for it.

    Q: How do you do 20 people on a platform?
    A: You get a bigger platform, or in this case a bigger circus tent.

    You can’t deprive the American people of much needed comic relief. Mr. Perry can’t carry the load all by himself.
