you got that right brother. as long as the sheep keep voting into office idiots like mentioned here it will not stop. I'm a retired cop and if my boss would have told me to go into someones' home without a warrant to see if guns were stored "legally" we would have a real big problem right on the spot.

““When the authorities turn the country into one big prison, openly robbing the populace and channeling funds to increase and enrich the police and other security agencies, society accepts arbitrariness and, having forgotten its advantage in numbers, brings the triumph of the police state closer through its inaction,” Pavlensky added.” I have to ask myself, is this what we are becoming?

Setting the stage for Hillary to come riding in on her black horse and save us all from obama. Woman think before you vote. Are you voting for America or for a woman?

This part of the story is the most disturbing to me ““I was afraid to call. I’m 93 years old. I didn’t want to have to go to the pen for something I didn’t do,” he told the local news station.”
You have to ask yourself why is he afraid of the police, our government and the legal system? Where have we gone wrong? Unfortunately I too do not trust our legal system.

“I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any ******* penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?”
I guess he forgot that the IRS is in control of obamacare and can access his bank account, hold any tax refunds, garnish his wages, take his house… Liberals are showing how really ignorant they are.
Actually, they can't garnish wages or seize bank accounts - the penalty is pretty much toothless if you don't have a tax refund coming (and it's easy enough to arrange that for most people), I wrote this up a few weeks ago: http://theselfpaypatient.com/2013/10/01/obamacare-exchanges-open-today-do-you-really-have-to-buy-it/
That said, the law could change, although I'd be surprised if any Congress gave the IRS the authority to start seizing assets and garnishing wages.

WALMART should have set limits. Did they not think that these scam artists would not take advantage of this situation? Now the taxpayers will have to pick up the cost of lost and stolen food. Remember nice guys finish last.

I, of course, do not know the full story here but I would guess that this decision is more political than they want us to believe. This admin has been getting rid of many high ranking officers. Fall in line or be removed is their mode of operation.

Once again the Commander-in-Chief has shown that he is capable of turning veterans against law enforcement. Just his scheme to divide America even more than he already has. The LEO must follow orders or else they will be in the obama bread lines. They have only been asked to close sites and, at least not yet, told to open fire upon the citizens. Anger should be directed where it belongs – at the President and Progressives in both parties.
Tex: Agree. The Divider-in-Chief and the Chicago radicals strike again . Are there no patriotic Democrats left in the Party ?

Maybe they would rather recite a muslim prayer, or the communist manifesto, or quotes from Stalin or Chavez, or play the Mexican national anthem… Where are the parents? Where is common sense?

His actions are not the “beginning” but a continuation by this Tyrannical administration to punish anyone who would dare disagree with their anti-American destructive policies. And for you remaining reporters how long will it be before they do away with you?

If the House (Republicans) cave into the Senates demands they might as well go home. They have caved so much that what they say is not heard. The dems know they will cave so they just keep demanding their way or the highway. Time for true Conservatives to step up to the plate and vote these RINO’s out of office.

Union thug tactics from the scarer-in-chief. How about you do not pay us we do not fight? This guy really needs to be impeached for dereliction of duty.
Sarah is living rent free - in my colon.
Should be evicted after another cup of coffee.
@ Charles. And how is that?

This is more than “copyright infringement”. The left are so afraid of Sarah Palin that it is getting funny. Funny for us but not her. If a left leaning organization had used the photos you would not see any legal action. Come on Conservatives we have got them on the run. They are falling apart in every action they take. Our time has come to destroy their Marxist plans.
"The left is afraid of Sarah?" Thanks for the laugh.
Palin is a professional comedian at this point.
You're right though.
Some folks ARE afraid of clowns.

Not forgetting that we do not have any money this is not the big issue. How about the lives that will be taken and the limbs that will be lost when we do put boots on the ground. I say we have been at WAR long enough. If the idiotic elected officials cannot give the military the authority to go in, destroy/kill and win then we should get out. How about sending the elected officials sons, daughters and relatives to the front line?

Now we need the politicians, that wear stars on their uniforms, to get together and educate the ignorant fool in the WH.

All of is regulations and laws have been directed at destroying the middle class. He is the worst person America could have to lead this country. He has taken, in my opinion, the worlds best medical system and destroyed it. He has raise our debt to levels that will never be paid back. He has divided the races, religions and social classes. He has created a class of government dependent people who have to vote for the Progressives in order to continue getting their pittance from the government. He has supported our enemies and turned his back on our allies. And in do not care what the color of his skin is he is a Socialist/Marxist/Fascist dictator bent on bringing America to its knees. We already have one knee on the ground. Elect Hillary to get the second knee there.
Clean Air Act
2008 farm bill
EPA- RPP (perhaps the worst of all)
In all do respect East, not one of those regulations is what is truly keeping down the middle class. It basically comes down to wages and profit. Todays business environment, created long before Obama took the wheel, is all about maximum profit at the expense of the work force. I've watched it evolve for 35 years. Reducing or freezing pay raises at every faux opportunity. Even when the imaginary problem had no effect on a particular business it was used for cover anyway. Besides, things like Dodd Frank have been completely gutted of any worthy effectiveness anyway. Compliments of Eric Cantor and the big money backers.
STEVE.. also with all due respect... your perspective, as is often the case with Progressive economic arguments, assumes that everybody works for someone else. Owner-operators, and very small family businesses, like mine, were the backbone of this country's economy for over a century.
EPA-RPP, along with the lingering effects of Dodd-Frank, has DESTROYED my industry.
Small Home repair/ Remodeling companies (less than 10 or so employees) have two choices right now:
1. Ignore Regulations
PS:, STEVE... i don't blame Obama. I blame the increasingly Progressive evolution of these time-bombed regulations that often get lobbied into legislation 10-20 yrs before they're put into effect.
I agree that your industry has had is share of regulations but most of those are the result of insurance companies lobbying for stricter building codes in a attempt to reduce their liability. What destroyed, or more accurately, damaged your industry was the wild, out of control housing market. Tons of new players in your sand box competing with each other, coupled with increased material price, and a glutton of inventory has driven profit levels to a all time low. Your dip in business and revenue is more the direct result of the housing crash than regulations. I also imagine local and state rules have had more of a negative effect on your bottom line than anything Federal. I too, am a small business owner with my own challenges with regulations. A recent change in bandwidth for smartphones cost me about 20 grand. Building requirements and insurance in hurricane prone areas, like mine, have also cost me a small fortune. At the end of the day Obama has saved me thousands in my small business. Conservatives, like rick scott have cost me thousands. Its one thing to say you're out for the small business man but my balance sheet quickly tells me who's lying.
keep trying steve your bull does add up
steve..total non-sense..but proof your indoctrination is complete.... red brigade U. ??????
Stevie' bull never adds up! " At the end of the day Obama has saved me thousands in my small business"? what a croc of road apples!
Here's a small list for you.
10% Smaller estimated tax payments
full family Healthcare deductions since 2010
deducting up to 10,000 every year for equipment purchases
50% bonus depreciation on large purchases, sadly ends this year.
3% from the wife's paycheck. about $3000.
I now pay sales tax for renting my own building to one of my businesses. $2100. a year
Citizens insurance a $1500. increase from just last year for my house with no claims or catastrophes. He wants us back into the private sector by forcing us out with ridiculously high rates. To the same companies that dropped us or wouldn't even offer a policy at all after the Hurricane hit.
Another 3200, on my business property and properties I hold the notes on.
That right there is almost 10 grand.
I could go on but the wife is saying "mow the lawn". lol Not one of his claimed 34 tax breaks applies to me or my businesses. He did however side with the healthcare insurance companies giving me some nice increases in that area as well.
ya steve you take the loopholes that Obama says no to . and you and Obama gobble up the same loopholes other people should not have because they are not super genius like you . you are a lying sob stevie
What are you talking about? These are not loopholes. These are legitimate tax breaks any small business can take advantage of and should. "Super genius", not required. If you can't rub those two brain cells together and prove me a liar? I'd take kindly to you stop calling me one.
BTW, what's it like to be that angry all the time?

And do not think, for one moment, that once they have gained major control in America, they already have a big foot hold, that things will be any different.
Texpat i completely agree, i do not have the temperment to be a politition because as soon as someone make's the stupid statement it's not all muslims it's just the radical Islamist i get to angry to have a rational conversation. They are technicallly correct but in a predominately muslim society it is the RADICALS that are in control and those that are not killers cowar in their homes and say nothing. We cannot keep inviting these people into our culture.
