Hypocrisy has been a staple in the US diet for so many years... you guys actually believe your own BS.

If you Americans really understood the truth... you'd die of shame & embarassment at how easily you've been mislead, dumbed down, left ignorant & in the dark.

Yes.  You, the uneducated, uniformed, barely lucid Canadian know exactly what dark conspiracy has been hatched in the bowels of the United States government.  I am shivering in my boots.

15) Liberalism is pretending that Christians are dangerous while radical Islamists chanting "Death to America" and advocating Sharia law are harmless little lambs.


Aint that the truth.  I was in a meeting where someone (who happened to be lesbian) was condemning the Family Research Council as "virulently anti-gay" (because they support traditional marriage) while singing the praises of Muslims.  I told her you cannot get more anti-gay than murdering people based on their sexual preference.

the problem is that there is always the kid who shows up with 4 hershey bars in his lunch every day.

Or a can of mountain dew and some beef jerky.

Aside from the whole debate about whether the schools should be able to help the kid have proper nutrients for physical human growth...

I bet nobody here realizes that kids who eat like crap, feel like crap, and act out in school, disrupting the learning process for others and making schools less effective.  Just like your boss CAN tell you not to drink a fifth of vodka before work, because it impairs your ability to function at work.   But teachers/admin cannot tell a kid not to eat 25 pixie sticks for lunch because it impairs the students ability to function, learn, and not act the fool?

Nobody talks about that part of the issue.   Kids that eat garbage feel like garbage, and act up in a big way.

Yes the kid who brings for Hershey bars for lunch every day.  And the kid who brings live chickens, kills them at lunch, and eats them raw.  Happens all the time.

Because your justice system is fucked up. The last thing people should want is the State or any other entity deciding who should live and who should die, ...especially not someone like you. They usually include those of lesser intellectual capacity among those to be culled. I'd be very afraid if I were you.

Wake up and look at the gov't you have. Do you really want them deciding who lives & who dies?

Are you saying people who serve on juries in death penalty cases are not very smart?  How the heck would you know?

Here you go; this is the kid's meal. It is even more unhealthy that the two sandwiches previously posted. More that 2.5 times the daily intake of sodium and almost enough calories for and entire day for a kid.

Ok.  So then what?  If parents want their kids to eat it, let them eat it.

Meh.  Saul Alinksy's Rules for Radicals played as much of a role as anything.  Media bias helped a great deal.  The only thing I'd really fault Romney for is having a pretty bad ground game on election day. 

There are some who think he should have gotten in the mud more, and it probably would have helped him, but he stayed true to he was.  Not necessarily a recipe for success against a corrupt Chicago politician, but I like the fact he didn't get wrapped up in the sleaze. 

And he was right about Russia (and many other things).

nobody wants to play with kobe the rapist, as proven this offseason he's a scumbag in so many ways

can you provide an arrest record for ben please?  good luck finding something that doesn't exist, and it's even more hypocritical of you considering aldon smith and your qb was accused of rape this offseason, maybe think before you post in an argument you can't win

skip calling him lecramp and the frozen one aren't the slightlest bit witty, i don't hate skip but that is very weak trolling on his part

so you have good memories of a block in an all star game??  i guess that's all laker fans have left and will have for awhile


LeCramp has two rings that he only won because he had to link up with two other star players. 

Kobe has five rings, including two without Shaq.  Those are the facts.  You can drink the hateraide all you want, but you cannot change history. 

And yes, I do think the nicknames Skip Bayless gave LeCramp are hilarious. 

Does this make you sad?   Grin

I feel like they did a good job with last years roster.  Guys like Swaggy P, Xavier Henry and Wesley Johnson can all play.  Marshon Brooks wasn't bad.  Young talent.  The injury bug bit them and they had, in my opinion, a bad coach.  He was constantly tinkering with the depth chart even with the guys that weren't hurt.  Nobody knew their role so they all just played for themselves.  Lets let some of them play together  for a while under a competent coach that will have them play a little defense and see how they develop.

So far our roster is very small for this coming year.  Our Center is 6/10 and power forwards are 6'9.  We need a 7 footer that can defend.  I would have thrown some money at Tyson Chandler but they couldn't because they were praying Carmelo would come to LA.  Most rational people knew that was a pipe dream.

I agree with all of this. 

I'm a little upset that I have to root for Boozer now.  I have disliked him ever since he scammed his way out of Cleveland years ago.

Chris Christie feels the love in Iowa
The Washington Examiner
Published July 18, 2014

MARION, Iowa -- At 3 p.m. on a Thursday, well after any lunch rush had come and gone, MJ's Restaurant in Marion was teeming with activity.

Local Republicans filled seats at nearly bare tables -- a coffee mug here, an iced tea there -- and dozens of reporters loitered, all waiting to see Gov. Terry Branstad and his potential-future-presidential-candidate guest, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, making his first trip to Iowa since 2012.

The whole scene initially felt like an awkward first date: Iowa Republicans, still puzzling over what went wrong in their last presidential election, being wooed by an attractive new suitor and urged to move on.

Vic Klopfenstein had ended up at this particular lunch joint by coincidence and decided to stay for the spectacle, but he was still hung up on a former flame.

“Is there a rumor mill out east about Mitt Romney running?” Klopfenstein, a former Marion mayor, asked. “Or the two of them together…” He trailed off wistfully, considering a Romney-Christie ticket. “They'd be unstoppable.”

A large share of Iowa Republicans still have reservations about Christie, and one-third have already decided they dislike him, an NBC News/Marist poll released Thursday showed.

“That's not bad,” Christie said when confronted with those numbers. “I'll take it.”

Hillary Clinton: Becoming Grandmother Could Halt 2016 Bid
Thursday, 17 Jul 2014
By Todd Beamon

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that becoming a grandmother could derail her bid for the White House in 2016.

"I’m about to have my first grandchild, which I’m thrilled about," Clinton told PBS journalist Charlie Rose in an interview. "I can’t wait."

"I want to see what that feels like," she added. "I’m not going to skip over it. I want to really be present, as I meet this … new person in our family."

Chelsea Clinton and her husband, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child this fall. They married in 2010.

Hillary Clinton said she would decide later this year on whether she would seek to become the Democratic nominee for president in 2016.

Her PBS interview with Rose will air in two parts, on Thursday and Friday. Clinton recently published her memoir, "Hard Choices."

Clinton said that the presidency "has only gotten harder," based on what she has seen from her years as first lady and from working for the Obama administration.

"The job has gotten even bigger and more difficult," she told Rose. "I understand how the job is done, and I understand what has to be prioritized.

"I just have to decide or not that’s what I want to do at this point in my life. … It’s a very personal choice."

Jeb Bush Raises Private Equity Funds as 2016 Campaign Eyed
Thursday, 17 Jul 2014

As other Republicans travel the country laying the groundwork for 2016 presidential campaigns, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is raising private-equity funds for oil and gas ventures.

Bush, 61, whose family made much of its fortune in Texas oil, has teamed with former Credit Suisse Group AG and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. bankers to create an investment firm based in Coral Gables, Florida, according to regulatory filings disclosed last month.

In April, his firm Britton Hill Holdings LLC used backing from a Chinese conglomerate to acquire a stake in a Stamford, Connecticut, shipping startup seeking to capitalize on surging Asian demand for U.S. shale oil and gas.

“Governor Bush is a businessman and investor and is proud of the work Britton Hill has done to invest in important projects,” said Kristy Campbell, his spokeswoman. “If Governor Bush becomes a candidate for office, he will review and comply with all necessary business disclosures.”

Since Bush completed his second term as governor in 2007, he’s immersed himself in corporate America, joining the board of hospital operator Tenet Healthcare Corp., advising Lehman Brothers and Barclays Plc and giving paid speeches. The son of a former president and brother of another, he’s also engaged in public debates on immigration and education, and is viewed by some within the Republican Party as well positioned to compete for the White House in 2016. Bush has said he will decide whether to run by the end of this year.

Bergdahl Platoon Mate: Desertion Is 'Unforgivable'
Thursday, 17 Jul 2014
By Melissa Clyne

A member of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's former platoon in Afghanistan says the soldier's decision to walk away from his post in Afghanistan is "unforgivable" and something for which he should be held accountable.

According to Matt Vierkant, Bergdahl presented a totally different front to his brothers in arms than he did to his parents.

"His letters and emails home talking badly about the military and America contradicts what he was telling us while we were in Afghanistan,"Vierkant told host John Bachman on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Thursday.

"He wanted to do more missions to find the Taliban, to seek them out, and to essentially kill them and do an infantry job, what we came there to do. But at the same time that he's talking disrespectfully about the military and America back to his parents, and then telling lies to whoever about running over children or whatever. There's so many aspects of this story, there's so many holes, there's so many contradictions. It doesn't even make sense."

News reports that Bergdahl was a victim are "ridiculous,"according to Vierkant.

"I understand that he went through five years of captivity, but that wasn't my fault,"he said.

"That was his own fault. He put himself in that position.

After five years in captivity beginning in June 2009, President Obama approved a prisoner swap involving Bergdahl. On May 31, Bergdahl was handed over to the U.S. military in exchange for five senior Taliban members held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Bergdahl is being represented by Eugene Fidell, a civilian lawyer specializing in military law.

Vierkant took issue with Bergdahl being returned to duty -- assigned to a desk job -- with no restrictions on his freedom.

"He's not being treated like any other person being investigated for desertion,"he said.

"(He's) almost being treated like a hero instead of being treated like he's actually under investigation.”

Vierkant hopes Bergdahl receives a fair trial but wants Americans to understand that desertion "is a very, very serious charge"that he and other soldiers take "seriously and personally.”

"If I was in Bergdahl's position and somebody was accusing me, or allegations of desertion and everything else were coming up against me, I'd be the first one to speak up and defend myself,"he said. "They won't even talk about his mindset or his health or even let him speak a word. They all tip-toe around it and I just found it really interesting.”

Mexican prison ordeal saps Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi's life savings
By Joseph J. Kolb
Published July 17, 2014

While Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi was living on a base and eating MREs in Afghanistan and earning a battlefield promotion, his paychecks from Uncle Sam were piling up in the bank.

He dreamed of returning to Weston, Fla., when his second tour of duty ended and buying a new truck, maybe getting a place of his own. At 26, and with a modest nest egg waiting, he had a future back home.

Now Tahmooressi languishes in a Mexican prison, plagued by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. And the $65,000 he saved in the service of his nation is gone, according to his mother.

"He has already lost all of his life savings."
- Jill Tahmooressi, mother of Marine imprisoned in Mexico
"He has already lost all of his life savings," his mother, Jill Tahmooressi, said. "When this is all over he will have nothing and will be facing an enormous debt."

Tahmooressi has been held since March 31, when he accidentally drove into Mexico at the San Ysidro, Calif., Port of Entry late March 31, after becoming disoriented from poorly lit street signs and being in a position on the road unable to make a last ditch U-turn. He was carrying all of his possessions, including three registered guns – legal in the U.S., but not in Mexico.

If convicted, he faces up to 21 years in prison. But even if he is set free, he will have nothing, his mother fears.

"He's been in jail for three months just for making a wrong turn and now he is broke," Jill Tahmooressi said. "He will walk out of jail a broke man."

Most of the money has been spent on attorneys, Jill Tahmooressi said. The Marine is now represented by Fernando Benitez, a legal star known for defending the mayor of Tijuana on weapons and corruption charges. While the family is confident in Benitez, two prior attorneys did little but send bills, according to Jill Tahmooressi.

She said their first lawyer, Alejandro Osuna, cost her son a prepaid retainer in excess of $10,000, although she declined to be more specific. Osuna was fired after he allegedly suggested Tahmooressi tell a judge at an April 28 hearing that he had never been to Mexico before his arrest, which was not true.

A second attorney, Lamberto Jesus Esquer Dabdoub, charged him $10,000 up front and didn't do anything prior to his firing eight days later because of lack of confidence by the family. Neither attorney ever submitted a shred of evidence to the federal court on Tahmooressi's behalf.

Benitez has yet to submit a bill, but given the case could stretch out for as long as two years, the Tahmooressi family is braced for expenses that could exceed $100,000.

The family of Jon Hammar, another Florida Marine caught at the border with a weapon he declared, told Jill Tahmooressi that in the four months he was in prison before his release in 2012, his legal fees alone exceeded $90,000.

Jill Tahmooressi said her son is shouldering the bulk of the expenses but she is not without her own financial burdens with the case. A nursing director at Miami Children's Hospital in Florida, she said she has already laid out more than $6,000 for travel to be with her son. The time she is taking from work is unpaid.

Jill Tahmooressi said she hasn't sought help because "economically, all of America has been hurting for so long." But three weeks ago, with the help of a California law firm that has been advising her, she established a charitable trust through Campaign Solutions in Washington. The name of the site to make donations for Andrew's defense is m.

But whether kind sympathizers chip in or the Tahmooressis have to go deeper into debt, the distraught mom said she would do whatever it took.

“I will pay any cost, including sacrificing our family home if need be, to pay the bills to Mexico associated with Andrew's release back to the states,” Jill Tahmooressi said.

Poll: LeBron voted most popular
Updated: July 17, 2014
By Darren Rovell |

LeBron James is the most popular male athlete in America for the first time in his career.

So says a new Harris Poll, which surveyed what it says is a representative sample of 2,241 people in the U.S. last month.

LeBron James, who fell out of the top 10 in 2011 after choosing Miami over Cleveland, was voted most popular male athlete in the U.S. for the first time.

James, whose highest ranking was No. 2 last season, topped retired Chicago Bulls star and Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan, who had the distinction of being No. 1 from 1993 through 2005.

It was a long road for James to get to the top. In 2011, the year after his "Decision" to go to Miami, James fell completely out of the top 10.

James was most popular among the 18-36 and 49-67 age demographics, while the poll reflected that Generatrion Xers (37-48) preferred Jordan.

Rounding out the top 5 is retiring New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and in a tie for fifth is Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Three of the top four most popular women are tennis players. The Williams sisters, Serena (No. 1) and Venus (No. 3), are joined at the top by Maria Sharapova (No. 4). Despite her inability to get into Victory Lane, Danica Patrick took the No. 2 spot, while retired soccer player Mia Hamm came in at No. 5.

The sport that has the most popular male athletes in the top 10 is, not surprisingly, football. After Manning at No. 4, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is No. 7, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is No. 9 and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers snuck into the top 10 at No. 10.

The favorite male athlete list includes only one player who has retired (Jordan), but the women's list includes four athletes in the top 10 who have hung it up: Hamm, tennis greats Billy Jean King (tied for sixth) and Chris Evert (tied for eighth) and beach volleyball player Misty May-Treanor (No. 10).

Two male athletes dropped off the list from last year -- Phil Mickelson and Tim Tebow.

Sounds like the president has a problem.  How long before Turley gets audited by the IRS?

Liberal Law Professor Jonathan Turley Thinks Congress Could Win Its New Lawsuit Against Obama

Left-wing law professor Jonathan Turley baffled his MSNBC cohorts on Wednesday when he claimed House Republicans have a real case in their lawsuit against President Obama for executive overreach, explaining that “there’s no license for going it alone in our system.”

On Wednesday, House Republican Speaker John Boehner announced plans to file a lawsuit on behalf of the institution of Congress accusing President Obama of abusing the power of the White House to unconstitutionally rewrite domestic laws.

Turley, a George Washington University law professor who supports much of President Obama’s agenda, has already opposed this White House before — most notably on the lack of notification to Congress before the transfer of five dangerous Taliban prisoners from Gitmo (RELATED: Turley: I Don’t Think There’s Much Debate’ That Obama Broke Law).

And after being asked by MSNBC host Steve Kornacki whether Boehner had “any kind of a case” with the lawsuit, Turley remained consistent.

“I think there is a case against the president for exceeding his authority,” he declared. “I happen to agree with the president on many of his priorities and policies, but as I testified in Congress I think he has crossed the constitutional line.”

“So where has he crossed it?” Kornacki pressed. “Like, what specific issue has he crossed it on?”

“Well, when the president went to Congress and said that he was going to go it alone, it obviously raises a concern,” Turley noted. “Because there’s no license for going it alone in our system.”

The law professor noted the unprecedented changes made to the Affordable Care Act — including the shift of nearly half a billion dollars to a purpose unspecified by Congress — as well as his deliberate disregard of existing law on immigration and the effective rewriting of other laws.

“While I happen to agree with him — I voted for him — I think this is a problem,” Turley asserted.

The George Washington professor noted, however, that the lawsuit won’t necessarily be cut-and-dried. He explained how difficult it is to obtain the proper standing to sue to a sitting U.S. president — noting that a lawsuit he brought against Obama for the non-authorized attack on Libya in 2011 was thrown out for that very reason.

But this lawsuit could be very different. “So the first hurdle is going to be that standing issue, and it’s a high one. But it’s not necessarily insurmountable,” Turley explained. “The court has never truly closed the door on what’s called ‘legislative standing,’ particularly if it’s based on the institution — if the House of Representatives empowers the group that litigates this case.”

Put simply, Turley believes that a court may actually allow a challenge to a U.S. president as part of a legitimate showdown between the executive and legislative branches of the United States government.
