How Foreign is Our Policy?

To be fair, unless Obama comes out and directly states that these results were his intent all along, that really just leaves the option of believing him to be incompetent and clueless. We just do not possess the ability to look into another's heart or thoughts, which means that guessing to his motives is pure speculation, and of the same vintage as liberals calling conservatives greedy or racist based on their perception of our policies. It is an unworthy argument to make. So, we are left to judge Obama's presidency by his words and actions and the results. Which is why I find him to be incompetent, directionless and without any leadership skills - all traits NOT found in good presidents.

The Lesson of Dunkirk

I consider what Cruz did and wants to do as a rear-guard action, to cover the general retreat from a battle that would be lost. When Cruz did that solo filibuster, it was not ultimately going to end ObamaCare or bring the Democrats off their "no negotiation" platform, but to demonstrate to the Democrats and to Republican voters that there is still a strength and a will to fight. This has the effect of heartening those who know retreat is necessary, while showing the opponent that the war isn't over. But I think the most harm that came out of Cruz's actions was done by the other Republicans who maligned him for standing up. They are the ones who sap their own parties' will to fight, who anger and divide their voters..
Don't think of it as 500K - 1M people losing their jobs, think of it as 500K - 1M people FREED from having to work! After all, unicorns and rainbows.

At the NYT, the spirit of Jayson Blair lives on.
It would be nice if the Democrats put as much time, thought and effort into governing wisely and well. But that's not going to happen.

A follow-up question regarding abortion in cases of rape is whether it is beneficial or negative, psychologically, for the raped woman who becomes pregnant to then have an abortion. Since I've never seen any pro-choice person refer to a study showing that it benefits women psychologically to abort a pregnancy caused by rape, I tend to assume that it is because such benefit is non-existent. I keep asking them anyway.

Liberal Rag: More Despotism Please

Your anecdote is not credible. Nor does it mean anything. And it has no bearing on this article. It sounds more like petty partisan whining and moaning. If liberals are supposed to be "educated" and "intellectual", you sure don't post that way.
Small words from a small man. His leftist myopia leaves him trapped in a desire to exist only within a left-wing echo chamber. And, it is clear that he is full of hatred and intolerance of others - a core and key left-wing trait. He's still a good actor. Just a lousy person.
Other than name recognition, what does Trump really bring to the table? Will he attract non-Republican Party registered voters? If he's the best GOP candidate to be found in NY, that's a very sad commentary on the state of the party in NY.

Congress cuts funding for horse slaughter

Weegie2 Wrote: Jan 17, 2014 6:58 AM
If the US funds inspections for other slaughterhouses, then refusing to fund slaughterhouse inspection for horse processing is capricious and arbitrary. Either legal processing inspection is funded, or it is not. Bias against one type of meat processing is not what I'd consider to be good Constitutional legislation. Of course, I do not anthromorphize animals, and have no romantic notions that horses are any better than steer when it comes to being a source of meat. If Congress doesn't want horse slaughter, then they should cowboy up and ban it, not cut funding for inspections so slaughterhouses cannot open. This weasel method is for cowards and stooges.
