So impressed was Leon Panetta with Hillary Clinton’s taking out the Republican opposition for 2014/2016, he said, “Damn! Women can sure fight good!”
Immediately thereafter, he overturned the ban on women in combat.

So. You’re saying we should have given them all guns instead? ….
The NRA says we need more guns.
I have taken on the task of illuminating news stories where more guns would not have made any difference. Less guns would.
With heavy heart we enter the holiday season with …
In the first story, a 16 year old with a gun riding a bike? Guns couldn’t help him.
In the second story, firefighters responding to a call, with guns in their hands? Guns couldn’t help them.
In the third, a police officer, murdered. Was wearing a gun. Guns didn’t help her…
So the NRA is full of poop. You know what their answer is? Deport Pier Morgan! He is calling them out on TV and they can’t handle the truth.
Simply put, ban all assault rifles, ban all large ammo clips, and license all guns and be able to trace them through every transaction both private and public…. We’d be done with this…..
It is sketchy but nerve gas appears to have been used in Syria.
Al Jazeera cannot independently verify the accounts being given to them.
Here is video featured by them….
Other accounts were lifted off twitter So far it appears that Albayada,Khalidyeh, Deir Balbeh, and Homs.
This report from Iran stating that chemical weapons were first used by the rebels killing 7 Syrian soldiers, seems to collaborate the data. Obviously to explain the use, blame must be put on the rebels, who as everyone knows, realistically would have no access to such expensive, complicated, and top secret military toxins…
It appears that Syria has taken the first step in releasing these toxins.
After every tragedy we’ve talked about doing something to stop random violence with assault weapons.
The last person who “did” anything, was James Brady who said enough is enough and pushed the “Brady Bill” over the NRA’s dead body into law.
It is time for the next step.
Every American must ask themselves. Since there will be no compromise, which is more important for America’s future?

Did you choose?
Then we need to start to work. I think it is safe to say that after Newtown, Connecticut, we are done with options. It has now become,… an obligation for us to stop this trend….
We need to act soon, before the next perpetrator, tries to outdo even this tragedy……
As predicted in a post below, Iran is using the cover of Gaza and was caught removing spent fuel from the Russian reactor that had been signed over to it.
Most people believe Iran is so significantly behind in the spent fuel enrichment process, so this matters little. However, the comment that was given to the press by the security officer at the site was rather interesting in its bluntness.
“Pay no attention. Everything is under control here.”
“That is exactly what I would say if I was up to no good…
Here are excerpts quoted from Reuters in the Chicago Tribune….
The U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency said in a report two days ago on Iran’s nuclear program that fuel was unloaded from the Bushehr plant in October and transferred to a spent fuel pond. Russia is required to import the spent fuel back into its country.
It was plugged into Iran’s national grid in September 2011. it reached 100% just months ago, August 30th. Iran did not give a reason for this past Friday’s fuel removal at the 1,000-megawatt reactor near the Gulf city of Bushehr. A diplomat familiar with the issue said it meant the plant was shut down.
Early last year, Iran said it was having to remove fuel for tests.
Mark Fitzpatrick, a nuclear expert at the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) think-tank, said that early fuel removal at Bushehr in the “worst case” might provide weapons-usable plutonium.
Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran’s envoy to the IAEA, suggested “It is a “very normal technical procedure (during the transfer) … to make sure every safety aspect is taken into consideration,” he told Reuters, without giving details.
Bottom line: a nuclear plant that has been under construction for 37 years, finally goes on line 2 months ago; within months it apparently gets shut down, and while all eyes are on Gaza, the spent fuel is removed under only Iranian supervision….
Of course it could be nothing to worry about…. but on the other hand, it could also be that the timing of Gaza’s rocket attacks upon Israel, was anything but randomly decided.
Reading a recent critique of the debates, it focused on a fact. Millions of Americans are not enjoying the benefits of this economy. Romney had the lucky position to point out all that was wrong, without the responsibility of finding any solution to fix it.
His line, “bring down the rates, broaden the base.” simply has not worked. It didn’t work in Reagan’s time. It didn’t work for Bush HW. It didn’t work for Bush W. It is called: “trickle down”.
Clinton, who practiced kavipsian Economics, raised the rates, causing profits to revert back into the economy stimulating even more growth; that growth grew people’s incomes. That is the key. People will take lower wages if they know they will grow out of them. But ever since Republican Tax Rates went into effect, wage growth immediately stopped. 99% of Americans are earning exactly what they did in 2000. It’s been twelve years since wages for the 99%, increased. Higher taxes takes away all incentive for any employer to pay his people more.
Here is the funny part. To actually do something about the economy, President Obama has to eradicate the Republicans. Get rid of them. Make them a non player. Republicans and republicans alone, are the reason the economy is in such a slump.
Republicans fought the stimulus.
Republicans fought the car buying incentive.
Republicans fought infrastructure development.
Republicans fought giving Veterans jobs upon returning to USA after fighting for years.
Republicans fought lowering insurance rates.
Republicans fought lowering gas price legislation.
Republicans fought regulating big banks from literally stealing your money.
Republicans fought against balancing the budget.
Republicans fought against payroll increases for all Americans.
Republicans fought against lowering medical costs.
Republicans fought against a better economy.
Republicans fought against hiring more policemen.
Republicans fought against hiring more fireman.
Republicans fought against hiring more school teachers.
Republicans fought against building roads and bridges that were sorely needed.
Republicans fought against not defaulting on the US Dollar.
Republicans fought against strengthening America Abroad.
Republicans fought against stopping corporate corruption.
Republicans fought against fighting wealthy tax cheats.
Republicans fought against closing the loopholes Romney used to get rich.
Republicans fought against raising wages for all Americans.
Republicans fought against legislation that allowed workers to ask for more money without being fired.
yeah. There is a reason the economy is bad. It is called the Republican Party.
Having “No Republicans” equals massive investment back into our economy. The formula for a successful America is…..
NO REPUBLICANS EVER ELECTED AGAIN = MASSIVE AMERICA ECONOMIC GROWTH
So Obama, you are at fault according to Mitt Romney and the Conservative Cheer-leading squad… Because you didn’t get rid of Republicans… Shame on you!!!!
I guess it is up to us, to do so if we EVER want our economy back.
If not… I guess every vote for a Republican is a vote in support of Communist China…..
Supposedly on Newark High School’s Junior Varsity, is a future threat to High Schools across the conference….
Playing linebacker next year, he has already given 10 concussions, broken 5 opponents bones, and had one kid tell the coach, he was the reason that kid wasn’t staying on the team anymore…..
I heard this with raised eyebrow, and wondering if these values are truly the ones we want our kids to work for,…. decided to pass it on.
Call every Congressional person and tell them this is preposterous.
Remember the baby video maker who was sued because of the pop music playing in the background?
This is foolishness, and every Delawarean, yea, even every national, Congressperson needs to know it…
Perhaps, perhaps, if it is passed, Hollywood can sell a couple of more movies…. But if it is passed, it will be the death of the first amendment… you and me, are gone….. morte…
There can be never be censorship of the Internet… Never. and period….
