    Since Kerry and Obama have no clue about what to do , to stem the war in the middle East , they will now form an international coalition and complain about the pollution it creates .

    We know at best she is a Holder clone , there is a chance she may actually worse. The GOP has not been happy with Holders actions since he took the position. She has come right out and stated she is supportive of everything the GOP is trying to fight and eliminate .So why is Lynch going to probably be confirmed eventually . Make Obama keep picking until he selects someone at least that isnt totally corrupt and at least believes in the Constitution they are supposed to defend.

    Here is a relatively short , well written article explaining the real reason we are involved in the Middle East , why we should remain outside of the Middle Easts religious war thats been going on for 2000 years ,and why we are supporting Saudi Arabia , and the Muslim Brotherhood.

    We dont believe anything Iran says and we certainly dont believe anything Obama , and Kerry says , so are we going to believe that two lying country administrations have reached an agreement and trust each other ? I think after all the patting each other on the back , and photo ops are done , Obama will add another lie to his legacy and we will be in deeper danger that we are now .

    “No one running for president on the Democrat or Republican side this time has ever, or will ever, write or say anything that honest.”
    From that time forward to present , that was the last honest , truthful thing said by Obama .. He holds the title and legacy , for being the most dishonest and dangerous President in the history of the country . I guess they are so busy over there at NBC , telling war stories , that they dont have much time for the truth or the facts.

    I agree with the first part of your comment .. Back in the 90s I moved to Roswell Ga. North of the perimeter for 10 years . We looked at College Park because the upscale new housing being built was less expensive than what we bought . For us it was too close to the airport , however the purchases were being dominated by middle class Black Americans . I have not been through there in many years , but if it is as you say lets give credit where credit is due , young Black suburbanites . The population of College Park is 20,000 total , 16,000 Blacks , 2,000 whites and 2,000 other races. The mayor and his board of directors are white , I have no idea whether they are liked or not . I dont know much about this rapper , but fame is not a qualification for doing the job of mayor , just look at the fiascoes in California.

    @Jungle J
    It was a long time ago , but I believe it was United but it might have been American Airlines.We left California to Alaska to Okinawa to Tan Son Nhut airbase near Saigon . I was with the 25th Infantry Div , and landed Oct 1967 , we took small arms fire going down the stairs out on the tarmac . Also here is a better link for the History channel special .

    If any of these politicians ever held a real job , they would know that most companies offer some compensation for maternity and family . If you are management most companies offer full compensation for at least the last months of pregnancy , and short term family matters. So one , what is this big deal , and two , why is the federal workers union only getting around to this coverage now , am I supposed to be impressed ?

    Current FHA mortgage info , I hope it helps some of you ..

    My observation on this subject .
    Interest rates have been at rock bottom , and dropped again at the beginning of the year . Housing market in conservative states is slowly edging upward .
    Obama and the Fed are following the same game plan that put us in the crash of 2008 , issuing mortgages to those that cant afford to pay , desperately trying to force some kind of real , good economic numbers for his legacy .
    Rents are on the increase as our young people cant get qualified for mortgages . Reduced income , and unemployment has forced our young people into renting as opposed to buying , till they can get better situated in this economy .
    Seniors fear a market crash or forced government investment , or reduction of SS , so investing in real estate has become an option to move a lifetime of retirement savings, out of the market , and use it to supply additional income . I turned an annuity investment guarantying 7% gain a year and turned into a 12.5 % gain a year , and equity equal to my initial outlay .
    Last seniors are moving in large numbers out of the expensive Progressive run northern states , into more Conservative states . I moved out of NY and settled in SC , our life is much less stressful and I cut my living expenses by 2/3 , with the same standard of living , actually better .

    As I see it all religions in this country worship one God. He may be called by other names , but still one God. So except for the atheist in this world we are all united under one God , no matter what he is called. Jesus is referred to differently or not at all in many religions , but the one God is the same .

    I was a big kid , building hotrod cars and racing boats , then I went to Vietnam . It didnt take me five minutes to realize , my time there was going to be no game . I went commercial airline and we took small arms fire getting off the plane . The judgements you have made are based on you never having experienced the battlefield , and I hope you never have to . Writing home to the family was always hard , you didnt want to worry them , and when things got ruff , you didnt have time and when it slowed up it took you a long time to come down from the hours of adrenalin rush . All you wanted to do clear your mind . In the midst of battle you are forced to make decisions that second , right or wrong , and sometimes you live with those decisions the rest of your life . Fighting a war is not a video game , every time you are shot it hurts , and when you are dead it permanent . The History Channel a couple of years ago did a special , it was well done , the 10 years of Vietnam . I suggest you watch it in its entirety , then see if you feel the same way when its through . I was there from Oct 1967 to Nov 1968 . To those in the states , Vietnam was an advisory and police action , to those in country the fighting was real , the same can be said for the Middle East War . You can find the History Channel Special here on you tube , it is also on Netflix .

    In the movie we looked through the eyes of one soldier , to see what all our veterans face daily in the Middle East , some worse some more. It is very hard for Americans to accept that in other parts of the world , children and women are an integral part of the fighting enemy . The American public realy doesnt want to see or know the horrors of the battle field , so to try and convey that experience , requires a delicate balance of reality and inference . Ask your parents and grandparents how they felt when the news carried selected pictures of Vietnam , that were more graphic than they were used to in the late 60s early 70s , but didnt even show the atrocities of the reality of war .

    There was never a war ever fought , that wasnt started by corrupt, greedy , and childish actions of politicians. While they continuously blame others for their actions , and sit in there plush homes with many armed security , to look after their families safety , our young sons , daughters , husbands and mothers step up to fight that war in far away places , to keep their family and country safe from the ravages of war , at home. These reasons are true on both sides of the war . I think all people are anti war , but those who step up to protect their families and country , know exactly why they are in the battle , and are willing to die for their family and country safety , and it has nothing to do with politics. Can our politicians , who put them there , say the same ?

    If you look at the torn page , I can be fairly sure the date says 1840 something . So if it was not his prior to 184- and the Bible was given to Sam Houston , by someone from the Texas Supreme Court , or even if it was given by a local hooker in 184- , does it not belong to him from that point forward ? So any analysis of the torn page , can not prove or disprove , that it belonged to Sam Houston . So whats the point , why would its authenticity be in question , in the first place . Its now a matter of tradition in Texas , and does it realy matter any longer , whether its Houstons or not , its realy a pretty sad state of affairs . (Pun)

    @HabanaJoe
    The atrocities you speak of are human faults not Gods . He has given man free will , and a set of rules to live by (in the Christian bible the ten commandments ) , all religions have a similar set of rules. They are not religious rules they are society rules . If all of society followed these rules the world would be a perfect place. Try reading the 10 Commandments , from an atheist point of view with an open mind , you will see they are not religious rules but that of a perfect society . Its up to humans to follow them , or not . We are responsible for our own destiny , God gives us the strength to try and follow them .
