    Are the Republicans still trying to blow up the talks?

    Frantically scribbling another letter that will show the world - again - how ill-educated they are?

    One can only hope. :-)

    I went to one of his concerts in Tokyo in the tour before the one that was cancelled (Nov 2014?)

    Blo*dy brilliant - loved it. That guy still has it in spades.

    I'm still not quite sure whether all the moral outrage emanating from the west is entirely justified wrt murders carried out by ISIS.

    I've been wondering what - if any - difference there is between beheading someone and dropping a 500lb bomb on a building that 'intelligence' claims contains 'territorists' or 'insurgents' (quite possibly nothing more than dads defending their courtyard against invaders/occupiers)?

    At the end of the day, people die, but only one group is filmed. 

    Does the fact one is being filmed make any difference? 

    Not to my mind.   The filming changes nothing; it is used purely for propaganda, 

    If western forces filmed their bombs, missiles and drones blowing people to little pieces and posted those clips on Facebook, I wonder how the selective moral outrage of people who are disgusted at ISIS's actions would change?

    Would we be as horrified as many people are at ISIS beheadings? I really don't think so,

    To me, the killing on both sides is unacceptable. 

    Western forces have killed hundreds of thousands more (many of them civilians) than ISIS have. If we are to hold a morally balanced view, we should be venting far more and much louder against our own nations' governments if they have contributed to the carnage in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc.

    ISIS beheading 21 people doesn't even begin to compare to the death toll created by western nations and yet - apparently because ISIS films some of their execution and puts on FB - it's a big deal?

    LOL! This is awesome.

    Obama has screwed Republicans again and shown they - yet again - have zero leadership skills.

    If they don't want to look like pack of frightened schoolgirls, they'll have to do something they've never done: say 'yes' to their president.

    We can all guess what will happen if they don't.

    Obama'a bringing his A game post election and the Republicans are getting whipped.

    All good. :-)

    Yubaru, Obama's not a lame duck at all - far from it.

    Democrats can block legislation in the Senate, and Obama can veto. Republicans need to understand they need to compromise to pass legislation.

    They've proven again and again that they can't, which is one of the many, many reasons why they're going to lose again in 2016. :-)

    Welcome to the beginning of the GOP's 3rd straight election defeat. The writing is on the wall for those who have eyes to see it. This budget will help shape the election debate and Obama and the Dems have no doubt planned this so that Republicans say 'No!' in all the right check boxes so that Dems can box conservative candidates in during the 2016 campaign.

    And here's some news for all the conservatives out there who - strangely - seem to have convinced themselves that Obama is "wrecking" the economy: 

    You want to talk jobs? Where's the jobs?

    Let's talk jobs -  Right now, America's enjoying the longest period of private sector job creation in American history..

    www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/wp/2014/09/15/obamas-claim-that-businesses-are-in-the-longest-uninterrupted-stretch-of-job-creation/

    Deficit? Let's talk deficit:

    The Federal budget deficit is shrinking. It’s been reduced by two-thirds since 2009. "The $1.4 trillion federal budget deficit that Obama inherited in 2009 was in a large part due to the high rate of unemployment.  When millions of people were put out of work in 2008 and 2009, it resulted in far less income taxes and less economic activity to generate federal revenue. As ten million people have been put back to work, there have been billions more tax dollars generated. As a result, the deficit has been SHRINKING each year.  The 2014 deficit is projected to be around $500 billion, the smallest deficit since 2007 and roughly 1/3 of what it was in 2009."

    www.usgovernmentspending.com/federaldeficitchart.html

    Hey, income taxes are way down, too.

    "For 95% of American taxpayers, income taxes are lower now than just about any time in the previous 50 years. After President Obama took office, thousands of Tea Party members all over the country held rallies protesting Obama’s tax increases.  At that time, President Obama had actually passed several tax cuts to stimulate the economy.  Most of the Tea Partiers who were protesting had only seen their taxes decrease under Obama. Yet polls indicated that most Tea Party members wrongly believed their taxes had gone up. In fact, the only people whose income taxes have gone up during Obama’s presidency are those making $400,000 per year or more.  That's less than 2% of the population.  Today, for the vast majority of people, tax rates are exactly where they were when Obama first took office or lower. The article below from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities explains this in greater detail."

    Oops!

    Oh, and one more - Obamacare's added years to the life of Medicare. "The Medicare trust fund had been on course to run out of money by the end of 2016. But due to cost savings from the Affordable Care Act and lower healthcare expenses, Medicare’s trust fund is now stable until the year 2030 without cutting benefits."

    It does not matter who the GOP select to represent them.

    As with the last 2 elections, the only thing the GOP can guarantee us (besides guaranteed failure) is a lineup of inept fools who will once again turn the GOP into a global laughing stock.

    I say 'Bring. It. On!' :-)

    The key to the Right's ongoing electoral defeats is education, or should I say lack of it.

    But they want to cut funding for that, too, which will only guarantee their own ongoing electoral failure. 

    Add to that, the current and upcoming fistfights Congress will have with the WH will only serve to underline how much the GOP wants to bury middle-class America.  

    Conservatives could learn, but luckily for the rest of us, they NEVER do.

    Equally enjoyable is being lectured to by American conservatives about US politics while I continually prove them wrong and massively out of touch. :-)

    Loving it. :-)

    Bass, I think you need to start following the news.

    Yes, the news, not Fox 'news' where you are clearly getting your talking points from.

    Where's employment? Highest in 8 or is it 10 years?

    Share market? Off the charts. 

    No. of Americans with health insurance? Higher than ever.

    Energy self-sufficiency? Heading skyward.

    GDP? What is it today - 5% ?

    You need to look at reality - things are rocking and you're still focused on the fantasy world of conservative 'news.'

    I'm loving this. The GOP does not know how to govern let alone propose sensible legislation.

    Never did. 

    The last decade has shown this conclusively.

    The GOP is the stomping ground for people who want to destroy America while thinking the complete opposite.

    It's bizarro-world.....

    BTW, you and your conservative compatriots are right now engineering the coming defeat of the GOP in 2016.

    Thanks! :-)

    This is simply the start of the end of the GOP in the next election.

    And like the last 2, this coming election loss will be self-inflicted. 

    When will conservatives ever learn??

    Bad news for conservatives: Obama knows all too well who the real terrorists are: the GOP and TP/other extremists in the conservative camp who would rather sabotage and tear America apart than work for the people who voted for them.

    Obama's already tried compromise with the GOP - and we got a government shutdown.  Dems have bent over backwards to compromise - even offering to cut Medicare.

    Cut valuable life-saving health insurance? Not fund infrastructure? More for wars and less for for schools?

    Who are conservatives trying to kid?

    It's time to play hardball: and Obama's doing it. The GOP are lining themselves up for a third straight election defeat.

    This is going to be fun to watch.

    This is awesome. I hope he runs.

    Mick Huckabee is running a presidential exploratory campaign that will suck the air out of Rick Santorum's campaign if he runs.

    They all suck, and will suck the air out of each others' campaigns.

    The GOP field in 2012 was nothing more than a standup clown comedy lineup.

    I heard some people mistakenly thought they were presidential candidates, haha :-)

    Wondering whether if the Japanese govt demanded top execs of, say, IBM or Microsoft to show up in Tokyo for hearings into their defective products, would they?

    I'm also wondering what - if any - jurisdiction the US govt has over executives of foreign-based companies. 

    Any?

    "With Kassig’s death, the Islamic State group has killed five Westerners it was holding"

    Meanwhile, US and otter allied forces have killed thousands and displaced millions, many of whom have been attacked, abused, killed by mistake, seen their family members attacked and abused in front of them, had bombs dropped on their heads......

    And this beheading is news?

    That's just ridiculous.  Stunning hypocrisy from the west...
