There are plenty of folks of other races with this attitude too. Google “The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia” and you will see some pretty despicable people who feel the government owes them a check and live off the tax payer’s dime so that they can get high and party all the time.
Krugman apparently believes that if you built an electric motor to power an electric generator that the generator would produce more energy than the motor would consume, even in a highly unoptimized system. Nevermind the laws for conservation of energy or thermodynamics, if you think it may have happened once, in a misread data point (He always goes back to the post-WWII boom), then surely it must happen every time, even if it doesn’t and never has.

Man, that sketch was a flop.

For anyone hoping for it to be Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Allen West, Bobby Jindal, Luis Fortuño, Herman Cain, Jim DeMint or somebody exciting, you are probably going to be disappointed. In all likelihood, it will be someone who is much more establishment friendly. (Think RINO.)
That’s what my gut says anyhow.

Exactly. Where I come from, she would be called a mooch and a flake. She doesn’t want to be tied down to anything but she depends on people who are to provide for her. If she was working in psychotherapy, she could easily be making a decent paycheck, but I guess it is easier to just not work and mooch instead. In my opinion, she is just taking charity away from those folks who genuinely need it.

It would be awesome if they implemented a weighted comment system like many other sites, so that certain folks don’t poison the water so often.
The message of Christianity is love, hope, forgiveness, understanding and good news. It is great to be fired up, but this kind of action does not show folks what Christianity is really about.

The description is another example of how liberals define Republicans in the most curious manner. It isn’t any actual policy or adherence to party platform that makes you a Republican, of course not…. What makes someone a Republican is if they act in a manner you disapprove of.
By this logic, Hitler was a Republican, Ghengis Khan and the Unabomber too. Pretty much everything and anything bad is Republican. The dingo that stole your baby? Republican of course.
No wonder liberals are blindly loyal to the Democrats.

I tend to agree. Although the Paul’s are politicians, I think they are too principled to throw out endorsements just to get along with the Republican higher ups.

Maybe it is just me, but I ignore both his blackness and his whiteness. I see no reason why race, heritage or color should have anything to do with how I judge his abilities.

If I believed the sky was falling, you wouldn’t catch me sunbathing.
Folks wonder why less and less people are buying into the anthropogenic climate change. Well, even if you don’t delve into the science, you can see by the actions of its proponents that they don’t really believe in it either.

The boxes were no doubt important, but I think the wing suit definitely was a large contributing factor to the success of the stunt.

The boxes were important, but my guess is that the wing suit also had a lot to do with the success of the stunt.

Even the government recommends a survival kit. You hear the commercials all the time. “Have a kit. Make a plan. Be informed.” They aren’t joking.
It doesn’t have to be an apocalyptic event. It could be just a tornado rampaged through your town and you need shelter, or a hurricane has contaminated your drinking water and you need purification, or a crook breaks into your house and you need protection. This kit is applicable to many situations.
Better to have such stuff and never need it than to need it and not have it.
Too much work. The government already has FEMA camps provided for you. Oh, you said you wanted to survive???
I don't see fragmentation grenades or condoms?
Do not use your credit card
Homeland Security advised law enforcement across the nation that anyone with more than a three day hoard of supplies should be suspected of terrorism. If you begin to stock up on supplies the government: local, state, or federal will pass regulations outlawing food hoarding. It was done during WWI and WWII. If you begin to stock up, keep it secret and use cash to buy the supplies.
I buy 2 weeks of food supply regularly, since I'm a shopping hater. Who knew I am a hoarder, too....

So assuming Obama approved his bio, either he lied in 1991, or he lied in 2008 when it came to his birthplace. There is no other way to look at it.
For the sake of simplicity, lets say Obama was really born in Hawaii. If so, it sounds like he is pulling the Elizabeth Warren method of pulling more liberal street cred by lying about his background. That or he is just ashamed to be an American.,..
The man has lied about every aspect of his life.
Personally, I think he was born in Hawaii (newspaper records of the time say so), but I don't think even HE knows where he was born anymore.
The birth announcements are useless. They were routinely published by relatives who may not have been in Hawaii or they may have been announcements of someone who was not born in Hawaii. They didn't come from a hospital. This Usurper was born in Hawaii, Obama does not have a legitimate American birth certificate, if there was one the liberal Governor would have found it and ended this debate a year ago. He couldn't find one. Wake up, we have been snookered by the best con man to ever walk on stage. Bill Clinton turned the Oval Office into a whorehouse and Obama usurped the damn place.
I find it hard to believe too. I mean, there are some government networks which are not even accessible via the internet. It sounds like someone who doesn’t know how some things work is just trying to brag and induce fear. That or there is a vast array of traitors at the highest levels of government….

Because if she were male and stripping on the side, the results would have been so different? Give me a break..
Being an employee of a company means you have been hired to represent that company. If they feel you are denigrating the company name by your off hours activity, then maybe you shouldn’t be doing that.
