Currently the Republicans have the power of the purse. Let’s see what they do with, and don’t forget what they do with it!

My impression of the whole speech was that Bibi was simply telling our Congress, the American people, and the whole world the TRUTH because we will not hear that from Obama. How incredibly sad that we have to hear from a leader of another nation the truth under these circumstances!
Regarding Bibi just wanting to “make people afraid” – unfortunately, the truth is scary!
Also, just between you and me, I think Bibi knows Obama is a Muslim and a traitor. ;)

Our government has recently stated that there are terrorist cells in every state in the U.S.. Our military is stretched to its limits. WHAT IF all these terrorist cells were simply laying low until they receive a signal that its time for them all to come out and attack at the same time? Shouldn’t we all be prepared so that we are not a bunch of unarmed sheep and we have to watch as our fellow citizens are paraded through our streets in cages to be executed? This is one of the most popular ammunition around and Obama wants to get rid of it, yet he wants to give guns to “Syrian rebels” who most likely are ISIS members now. WWMD?

Just one question: Why are Volvos called “Volvos” yet have the male symbol as their logo? Maybe it’s just me, but that’s always seemed uh, uh, a little strange??? Until I know that answer, I could never consider that car. ;)

I loved Star Trek and the character Spock, however, that line also always made me cringe. However, to all the people who are upset with William Shatner for not attending Nimoy’s funeral, they need to keep in mind that Shatner was attending a fundraiser for the Red Cross, which helps many instead of attending a funeral for one. It’s what Spock would have wanted.

I agree, except for finding a way to give “incentives” to parents. It is the JOB of the parents to participate, and they should WANT to participate for the good of their child. Incentives are what you give to children not to grown adults.
Also, when my kids were in school, the teachers were moaning and groaning about the lack of parental support. The teachers needed “help” doing THEIR job, so I’d volunteer, but when I showed up at the designated time the teachers didn’t have diddly squat for me to do. I drove out there to make 6 (SIX!) copies on their copy machine!!!
Bottom line is EVERYONE needs to do their JOB!

Parents, one duty of being a parent is to GO TO THE CHILD’S ACTIVITIES. This includes games, parent/teacher meetings, open houses at their school, spelling bees, plays and recitals, and all the little things that may seem trivial to you, but shows the child that you CARE. If you have no interest in doing these things, then don’t have a kid(s)! The absence of the parents at this game COULD be a reason why these kids are in the Juvenile Detention facility in the first place.

It’s sick, but women seeking terrorists and the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon could both be due to the wussification of the American man. REAL men are becoming rarer and rarer with all the “metrosexual” men and gays in the limelight. Men don’t have many good role models, so they either end up on both ends of the spectrum from the “girly” men (men who act like women in their effort to be kind and gentle) to the abusive and/or overly macho men and even terrorists. The “normal” men are an endangered species because they have been beaten into submission by the media, Hollywood, and women’s libbers. (Just look at what the shows are on TV. All the characters played by men are either gay, neurotic, and exciting risk takers like Bruce Willis, or a dangerous villain. Shows with “normal” men are considered too boring to show.) Many men grow up in single parent households (usually a Mother) and are clueless to how men should be, so they choose an image from what they see on TV, etc. Some women in their search for normal men (either consciously or instinctively) also have misguided ideas of what “normal” even is, due to the lack of good male role models in society as well. People also have misguided ideas of what love is due to the same problems in our society. Our images of love and each other have become warped.
Women seeking terrorists?
Do you righties do ANY thinking?
The thought that the women, THEMSELVES want to be terrorists
seems to have escaped both you and this silly widdle girl "writer".
Bet y'all don't think women belong in the US military either.

You are being played. You are doing exactly what the Obama administration wants.There is a lot more to this story than meets the eye.
Why don't you provide evidence of this "MORE TO THE STORY"? Someone is selling a product that is legal and Fed-Ex is refusing to ship it. Do you have additional details?
 February 25, 2015 at 10:58am
I agree, but it really is not that simple. It’s not Fed Ex’s responsibility to investigate other companies, and that is precisely what Fed Ex is fighting the government about! Fed Ex asked for a list of companies that were prohibited, and the gov. failed to give it to them. It is impossible for Fed Ex to do a background check on every single package that comes through their doors. Fed Ex IS fighting, but they are also a very responsible company. This isn’t just a 2 man business where if it fails, it’s only a couple of people who are in charge that lose their jobs. Fed Ex employs 1000s of people, and they actually CARE about those people’s livelihood as well. If we want to rant about anyone, it should be against the Federal government (not either of these 2 companies) who are behind all this BS.

Everyone, PLEASE STOP! THINK!!!!!! We are being played! We are so damn predictable. We jump behind anyone and anything that even remotely supports our values of freedom and the right to bear arms. In the process we are hurting one our major companies. Fed Ex is a VICTIM of our Federal government! Fed Ex has the feds breathing down their neck! They are merely trying to survive amid this administration’s regulations! Yes, we can support Defense Distributed, but also support Fed Ex in their battle against freakin’ Obama and his Gang of Enforcers. Obama wants nothing more than to hurt jobs, and get everyone on the government payroll. (USPS)
Fed X, like others are sheep. F fed x. And the commie .government. NSA, sorry NSA, I did not mean it.
Nah.......FE needs to grow a pair, take the case public, name names, and bring personal suits against those defaming it in court, and fight the Fedrawl Gubmint viciously. I'd use every legal nasty dirty piece of leverage I could against the personal lives of the Gubmint drone bees being used to annoy FE in court. By the time I was done with them, these dirty pieces of human feces would be whimpering masses curled up under their tables in fetal positions sucking their thumbs.
FE is living in fear. The bully needs to be slapped down. Hard.
Then Fed Ex needs to stand up for their rights to conduct business without overbearing laws that render them ineffective. EVERYONE NEEDS TO STAND UP FOR LIBERTY. The FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS OUT OF LINE and completely ILLEGAL. The Feds are doing the same crap they did as in the South causing the civil war DICTATING where they have NO LEGAL right to do so, removing peoples LIBERTY OF COMMERCE. Fed Ex need to stand up for their survival of liberty!
 February 25, 2015 at 10:05am
bring-it-on, divide and conquer. They know all of us Conservatives would jump to rally behind anyone supporting freedom and the right to bear arms. We all boycott Fed Ex, which hurts Fed Ex, and who does that help? The Federal government! Not only that, but the gov. can hurt Fed Ex even more with ridiculous fines. The government is in a win-win situation, while Fed Ex is in a damned if they do, damned if they don’t situation. Rather convenient isn’t it?

BadOPCode, FedEx is facing a $1.6 BILLION in fines from the federal government. They are simply being cautious, and I don’t blame them. The feds would LOVE to shut FedEx down. Makes a lot of room for the United States Postal Service (which happens to be in big financial trouble) , doesn’t it?
 February 25, 2015 at 9:33am
This isn’t the same thing. The Federal government is forcing Fed Ex to comply with this regulation. Please see my post above yours.
Just pseudo liberals practicing their "higher thinking" by shooting the messenger. Funny how these "higher thinkers" are now terrified of tools now. "People build things with tools! We don't always approve of the things they build. Ban wrenches and screwdrivers!!!"

Tigress1: Just who do you think controls the Feds? Not the constitutionalists and not Christians. It is the left (=progressives = socialists, communists, Marxists). The left as controller of the Feds is forcing these unconstitutional acts.

Tigress, I get what you're saying, but with the country the way it is now, all bets are off. There is no regulation, therefore it's OK to ship this item. Fed Ex is way too big for the regime to force them to do anything, as they have plenty of leverage. If they stopped all shipping just for the regime, there would be chaos, not to mention the stock market trouble. The other shippers don't have the wherewithal to pick up the slack. Someone has to back the regime down at some point, why not Fed Ex?
WHAT REGULATION? You just pulled that assertion out of your ass and expect us all to buy it.

Congress needs to override the veto. Plain and simple.
Obama and the Democrats claim they want more “infrastructure”. The “Stimulus” bill was SUPPOSED to go to infrastructure. Well, what on earth do they think this pipeline is? It’s INFRASTRUCTURE! In fact it’s better than government funded infrastructure because it will be paid for by private companies. There is absolutely no excuse for Obama to veto this bill other than the fact that he hates this country, doesn’t give a flying flip about American jobs, he doesn’t give a flying flip about American oil independence – in fact he wants us to be dependent on his Muslim brothers in the Middle East, and he doesn’t give a flying flip about the environment because this is better for the environment than transporting oil by train.
Mr. “I’ve been working on the railroad” Buffet is peeing in his pants with excitement over this.

Before everyone goes on a rampage blasting Fed Ex for this, it might help to see things from Fed Ex’s perspective. Last July, the Federal government indicted Fed Ex for shipping drugs from illegal companies. Fed Ex pleaded with the Feds for a list of companies that they were not allowed to do business with, but the Feds never gave them that list. Fed Ex could be sued for $1.6 BILLION. Now the question of the legitimacy of this company comes into question. Do you blame Fed Ex for wanting to know? Fed Ex is simply complying with the Federal rules! Fed Ex is damned if they do and damned if they don’t!
Nothing pisses me off more than a company submitting to the government. When did it become Fedx's responsibility to investigate any company who asks for their services...They deliver, the Feds are responsible to investigate notorious behavior. Stand up you wussies!
Evil exists when good COMPANY'S do nothing.
Fedrawl Gubmint brought the suit. Fedrawl Gubmint has to prove in court FE was complicit or at least knowingly transported illegal drugs. There is regulation on that.
There is no regulation on providing a tool that is used to produce a part of a weapon. There is no law prohibiting people from manufacturing their own weapons. Therefore, there is no law prohibiting or restricting the transport of these tools. If FE is so scared of Fedrawl Gubmint ham-handedness, and since human ingenuity can turn virtually ANYTHING into a weapon, they should just closed the doors now.
