$1.8 Billion, not bad but he didn't build it per obama and he will find a way to steal the gain.

Unless I can use a star trek transporter to get to a state that voted solid red, I will stay home.
Spend no money on travel. Let Vegas die.
Spend no money on frivolity. I told my daughter that this year, Santa is being taxed and regulated and that it will be a very very small celebration.
Fight with all we have left to us. Let 'them' suffer the consequences of their vote.
I am a Giants football fan. Victor Cruz's endorsement of Obama, and his responses afterwards("I was very excited, it's big for minorites, it's big for latin culture, the latin community, it's big for all of us."-not a WORD about it being good for America) have resulted in my hope that he trips outside of the stadium property and shatters his knees, dying in poverty in the gutter. I'd trade EVERY future win for the Jints to save AMERICA.

A port schedule shows the vessel was in Skagway that day. The inspection, among other things, found an organized effort to remove more than 15 trolleys of food and spices, including milk, eggs and raw meat, to individual cabins shared by crew members to avoid

CAIRO — A Defense Ministry official says army chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is meeting with his top commanders, hours before the military´s deadline to the president and opposition to resolve the nation´s political crisis is set to expire. The official, who gave no further details, spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. Embattled President Mohammed Morsi vowed late Tuesday to stay in office and called on the military to withdraw its ultimatum, which expires later Wednesday. The military says if no agreement is reached,

SURREY, British Columbia — A Boston Marathon-style attack on Canada Day festivities Monday was disrupted when the Mounties nabbed an al-Qaeda-inspired couple and seized pressure cooker bombs, police said. John Stewart Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody were inspired by al-Qaeda ideology but were self-radicalized, (Snip) Malizia said there was no evidence to suggest a link to the deadly Boston Marathon bombings in April. But the plot outlined by the RCMP appears to parallel the case in Boston, where federal prosecutors say the Tsarnaev brothers learned how to make pressure cooker bombs from an online al-Qaeda magazine,

So now the wrong has been declared right, not by a consensus of Americans, but rather by government fiat, the way they do it in nations where people live under the thumbs of tyrants, having no voice in their own affairs. We once pitied them. Now we’re beginning to resemble them. What happened yesterday was an abomination, not only in the way the Supreme Court trashed the institution of marriage, but also in the way its liberal branch slapped a muzzle onto the populace, in effect ruling the will of the people is of no consequence

Well, that was fun. Another election, another moderate/independent/“I’m not one of those” Republican nominees goes down to defeat in Massachusetts. If it’s true that insanity is doing the same thing again and again but expecting a different result, the Massachusetts GOP should spike the lemonade at its July Fourth BBQ with Thorazine. According to the data available at Wikipedia.com, there have been 102 elections for federal and statewide office in Massachusetts in the 21st century. After yesterday, the Republicans’ record? Two wins, 100 losses.

ISTANBUL - Turkish riot police stormed a central Istanbul park on Saturday firing tear gas and water cannon to evict hundreds of anti-government protesters hours after an ultimatum from Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan. Lines of police backed by armoured vehicles sealed off Taksim Square in the centre of the city as officers stormed the adjoining Gezi Park, where protesters had been camped in a ramshackle settlement of tents for more than two weeks. Residents in surrounding neighbourhoods took to their balconies or leant out of windows banging pots and pans,

There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament.

It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees. Temperatures in the Arctic region of Alaska are warming twice as fast as the rest of the U.S, causing ice to retreat, sea levels to rise and coastal erosion to increase.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic

Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.

I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
