    I often wondered why food stamp recipients just don't receive a box of food from the post office.

    They would get healthy food, create jobs at a food distribution center and keep the post office in business.

    Give them a choice of voucher coupons if they want fresh milk, eggs, meat or cheese.

    I've seen liquor stores with flashing signs that say “EBT cards accepted here”.

    I am tired of supporting these folks.

    You bring up an excellent point. Most men the General’s age who have prostrate cancer surgery find their ability to perform sexually gone or diminished.

    Interestingly enough we can throw flames at the General for having a relationship with a woman when he is thousands of miles from home for extended periods of time yet we give a pass to some of Republican, Conservative Leaders who have had affairs while married and living the good life in DC.

    I'm not condoning, I just sayin.

    Well this is going to be better than any 24 series only perhaps the Mistress is Kiefer Sutherland.

    Obama knows that Patraeus is having an affair and that no Republican would question his credibility to be appointed head of the CIA. Obama holds the card on controlling Patreaus. The chess game comes when Obama didn't realize that the good guys planted the Mistress knowing inside information that Patreaus was going to be tapped for heading the CIA.

    Pateaus accepts the position and finds out he has been duped and the Mistress the the General collaborate to expose Obama and his Administration. The General passes information on to the Mistress for safe-keeping and exposure in the event he cannot.

    So in the end the fox has been out foxed. The Mistress is not a slut and the General was a good guy after all.

    The President is impeached and we get Joe Biden....the moral of the story? Replace John Boehner as soon as possible.

    I have a friend who has worked for years in a top management position with one of the largest defense contractors in the US. The day after the election everyone was notified that there would be changes in their insurance coverage. Basically, they will be given individual, bare bones insurance coverage. No more coverage paid for by the employer for the family. To compensate for the loss of family benefits the employee/employer will have the option to contribute to a Health Savings Account that can be used to buy insurance for the family or additional coverage for the employee. Also gone will be the life insurance benefits. The bottom line will be the employee can take it or look for a new job. My friend is in his 50’s and what choice does he have at this point in his career?

    Obamacare is going to have a huge impact on middle class America and they believed everything they were told by Obama.

    If you voted early in Florida the protocol was to have a deputy stand at the end of the line at 7PM, regardless of how long the line was and those folks got to vote even though the process went beyond 7PM.

    We had the Obama Mobile cruise through the parking lot where we stood for 3 hours to vote. They dropped off Obama supporters who walked up and down the lines giving all of us the creepy feeling that they were ready to pull out their batons at any given provocation. No one said a thing but if looks could tell a message we were wondering “why are these folks here?”.

    It is interesting that the only voters saying they were turned away were Obama supporters!

    We are in SW Florida and there has been a 3 hour wait since early voting started on Sunday. We waited 3+ hours on Tuesday and the deputy said that from 7AM to 7PM there has been this kind of wait. That they have lines waiting when the doors open and have to put a deputy at the end of the line at 7PM to stop the flow coming in.

    While we were there an Obama Van came around every hour delivering and picking up voters and there was a total 4 folks dropped off and picked up. It was interesting because the folks in our area of Florida are the SS/Latino Crowd and the Obama voters were under 25 sporting locks, baggy pants and bling.

    I want Fox to go into detail how these American’s died. The shear panic they must have felt when they realized that help was not coming. What a horrible way to die. Folks should know that Chris Stevens was raped and God only knows what our Navy Seals went through in their final moments. It's an ugly story that needs to be told and the pictures of Ambassador Stevens need to be shown being dragged around the streets of Benghazi - I don't buy that story that some good Samaritan took him to the hospital. What a giant American Tragedy for the sake of re-electing someone that has no respect for American life. I am just so upset about this whole situation. Prayers up for all the families affected by the ineptness of a narcissistic pack of politicians.

    Libya

    August 27, 2012

    The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all but essential travel to Libya. The incidence of violent crime, especially carjacking and robbery, has become a serious problem. In addition, political violence in the form of assassinations and vehicle bombs has increased in both Benghazi and Tripoli. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning dated September 22, 2011, and notes the resumption of full consular services to U.S. citizens on August 27, 2012.

    Libyans cast ballots on July 7 in elections deemed to be free and fair according to election observers. Libya’s General National Congress replaced the Transitional National Council in August 2012 and will lead the country until elections are held on the basis of a new constitution. Despite this progress, violent crime continues to be a problem in Tripoli, Benghazi, and other parts of the country. In particular, armed carjacking and robbery are on the rise. In addition, political violence, including car bombings in Tripoli and assassinations of military officers and alleged former regime officials in Benghazi, has increased. Inter-militia conflict can erupt at any time or any place in the country. Seven Iranian Red Crescent officials were kidnapped July 31 in Benghazi by local militia members, and as of the date of this warning, they have not been released. There have also been several reports of militias briefly apprehending and detaining foreigners due to perceived or actual violations of Libyan law. The Embassy’s ability to intervene in such cases remains limited, as these groups are neither sanctioned nor controlled by the Libyan government.

    U.S. Embassy Tripoli resumed full consular services for U.S. citizens in Libya on August 27, 2012.

    U.S. citizens traveling to, or remaining in, Libya should use extreme caution and limit nonessential travel within the country, make their own contingency emergency plans, enroll their presence in Libya through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), and provide their current contact information and next-of-kin or emergency contact information.

    The Embassy’s website, includes consular information and the most recent messages for U.S. citizens in Libya. U.S. citizens in need of emergency assistance should call 091-220-5203 within Libya or 218-91-220-5203 if dialing from outside of Libya.

    Libya

    August 27, 2012

    The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all but essential travel to Libya. The incidence of violent crime, especially carjacking and robbery, has become a serious problem. In addition, political violence in the form of assassinations and vehicle bombs has increased in both Benghazi and Tripoli. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning dated September 22, 2011, and notes the resumption of full consular services to U.S. citizens on August 27, 2012.

    Libyans cast ballots on July 7 in elections deemed to be free and fair according to election observers. Libya’s General National Congress replaced the Transitional National Council in August 2012 and will lead the country until elections are held on the basis of a new constitution. Despite this progress, violent crime continues to be a problem in Tripoli, Benghazi, and other parts of the country. In particular, armed carjacking and robbery are on the rise. In addition, political violence, including car bombings in Tripoli and assassinations of military officers and alleged former regime officials in Benghazi, has increased. Inter-militia conflict can erupt at any time or any place in the country. Seven Iranian Red Crescent officials were kidnapped July 31 in Benghazi by local militia members, and as of the date of this warning, they have not been released. There have also been several reports of militias briefly apprehending and detaining foreigners due to perceived or actual violations of Libyan law. The Embassy’s ability to intervene in such cases remains limited, as these groups are neither sanctioned nor controlled by the Libyan government.

    U.S. Embassy Tripoli resumed full consular services for U.S. citizens in Libya on August 27, 2012.

    U.S. citizens traveling to, or remaining in, Libya should use extreme caution and limit nonessential travel within the country, make their own contingency emergency plans, enroll their presence in Libya through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), and provide their current contact information and next-of-kin or emergency contact information.

    The Embassy’s website, includes consular information and the most recent messages for U.S. citizens in Libya. U.S. citizens in need of emergency assistance should call 091-220-5203 within Libya or 218-91-220-5203 if dialing from outside of Libya.

    For information on “What the Department of State Can and Can’t Do in a Crisis,” please visit the Bureau of Consular Affairs’ Emergencies and Crisis link. Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada or, for callers outside the United States and Canada, on a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).
