Let’s not forget Fast & Furious as well. 2013 will be known as Scandal Summer.

It’s easy to ridicule LaGarde, the IMF, and the EU’s incompetent leaders. However, they are not stupid and what they are doing is 100% according to plan. Destroying these small countries was not a miscalculation and what they’ve done in Cyprus is a test. They are moving to destroy all financial privacy.

Isn’t it amazing what printing money and giving it to investment banks at zero percent interest can do? The banks don’t want to lend it to us poor credit risks, so they put it in the market driving up all stock and bond prices. It’s just another bubble. It either inflates to infinite or pops – either way, it’s going to be messy.
Actually the money base has not inflated as you guys and Glenn have been shouting about... the majority of it is sitting as excess reserves on the banks' balance sheets... not circulating in the economy. Also, government spending has been reduced from 25% of GDP to 22% of GDP over the past 3 years. The market, even at today's levels, is grossly undervalued when considering corporate profits and economic activity. Things are not as good as they could be, but the plow horse economy of the US trudges on... in spite of Obama and poor economic policies. Stop listening to the exaggerated, overly dramatic rhetoric from Glenn and all who support his defeatist, end-of-the-world view of conditions. This guy has gotten a lot more right than Glenn could have ever hoped over the past few years, and gives hard data to support his view vs. conjured up drama: http://www.ftportfolios.com/blogs/EconBlog/2013/5/6/the-qe-xcuse

Ohara is right. They photoshopped a U.S. over the P.R. flag in some images. Perhaps they didn’t want a backlash against Puerto Ricans? No se :)

The authoritarian nazi-like adherents to the rules over common sense drive me crazy. Whoever overheard his conversation should be ashamed of themselves. The amount of headaches, inconveniences, and potential lifelong damage that one busybody has done to this good kid is painful to imagine. Shame on them. Once the information left their lips to the administrators’ ears, there was nothing anyone else could do without sacrificing their own jobs – a high price to pay for doing the right thing for some people. However, the initial informant had nothing to lose by keeping their mouth shut.

Colorado is overrun with hypocritical liberals who left California to get away from the insane taxes only to bring their same leftist, tax hungry ideology to ruin a new state.

Are these ads supposed to make me want to purchase Mountain Dew? It makes me want to change the channel. It’s like an assault on my senses and my intelligence.

The bill was spot on right! The government has a fiduciary responsibility to its constituents NOT to waste money. If they can raise more funds by selling those guns, so be it!

I’m guessing they had to have environmental impact study based on citizens knowing their rights and not being pushed around by the EPA anymore.

Am I the only one trying to figure out how “she has 3 children with 5 parents?”
April 29, 2013 at 2:32pm
Unbelievable! Yet, these days unfortunately, very believable. The CPS agent can say the baby, whom she has never met, it severely neglected. The cops, barge in without a warrant and kidnap the child based on lies from people with “authority.” This kind of authoritarianism is exactly what leads to totalitarian governments. People, including cops, need to questions EVERY order, EVERY law, EVERY piece of BS that comes from “authorities.”

Was Bill rolling his eyes at some point? He’s such a know-it-all when he is really quite ignorant on most things.

With $1 trillion + deficits and a diminishing faith in the dollar, the mad scramble for more tax revenues is just starting. Don’t wait until they target your retirement accounts, get some money out of the country now. You can see a little how here: http://bit.ly/YWn3Jf

Remember, he promised to “fundamentally change America.” Our foundation was in liberty, equality under the law, and sovereignty in the hands of the individual. To change the foundation, those are the things you have to attack. He has done that, is doing that, and will continue to do that over the next few years. America will exist, but it will be wholly different once he’s done. But that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.

Is it just me or does that hair resemble Trump’s?

I think the important part, aside from the attention grabbing clitorectomy statement, is a legitimate point. What did the wife know and when did she know it? She could be an accessory before the fact or after the fact, an accomplice, or a co-conspirator. She should definitely NOT receive a free pass on this. However, since she probably knows something of the bombers’ relationship with the Saudi National, Alharbi, she will probably not be exposed to severe punishment lest she let the cat out of the bag.

It just seems intuitively obvious to me that this Saudi guy was an asset of a federal alphabet agency who recruited the 2 Chechens to carry out an attack. Just like the other 17 FBI “success” stories where they stopped a terrorist attack. However, for some reason, they failed to stop this one. It has happened before. Remember, the first WTC bombing was actually instigated by the FBI and they even provided the bomb material to the culprits.
Now, with egg on their face, they are trying to cover up what they did and get the Saudi guy out of the country. They already stripped his apartment bare of all evidence linking him to his handlers and the bombing itself.
After the Saudi national report was denied twice I smelled a rat. I wondered if the FBI wanted everyone's pictures so they could see if the bombers ( who they knew) could be seen. Then a survivor said he saw the guy. Now they couldn't pretend they had no leads and this forced them to ID the real bombers.. what happened after that.. I don't know.. in retrospect it seems very odd.. who knows? at least they got the Saudi kid off the hook
and initially there was some really weird stuff like the armed robbery was unrelated to the suspects etc. whatever happened around MIT sounds odd.. did they catch the robbers? how did they know the suspects killed the cop in his car.. and they called it an assassination
I would like to hear all that clarified
I’m in favor of amending the 2nd amendment to ban individual ownership and control of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons. I am in favor of amending it precisely because, as written, the current 2nd amendment does not allow infringing on the right of the people to own these things. That’s what it says no matter how many ways liberal judges and courts try to see other things in it.

How ridiculous they covered up a warm dry place for homeless people so they can live in abandoned buildings instead. They said they were investigating theft, but didn’t mention finding anything. These people were getting by best they could. They just made it harder. Thanks government!
