    Former DNC Head Debbie Wasserman Schultz finally broke her silence on arrested IT staffer Imran Awan, saying she has no regrets about keeping him on the payroll after he was blocked from working on Capitol Hill. https://twitter.com/ZeroPointNow/status/893253258164158464Orlando Sentinel reports:   Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defiantly stands by her decision to keep an information technology aide on her payroll for six months after he was banned from the House network and fired by other members of Congress. “I believe that I did the right thing, and I would do it again,” Wasserman Schultz said Thursday in an exclusive interview with the Sun Sentinel. “There are...

    Who are they anyway? They have to do this and they have to do that. They should have done this and should have done that. When are they gonna do something about this? I wish they would (fill in the blank) already ! They are so stupid. They are so corrupt. They are a bunch of crooks. No pronoun gets more use and abuse than the all-purpose, ubiquitous third-person plural “they,” or the objective form “them.” But exactly who are they? They, when unidentified as a specific entity, or group, or institution, are simultaneously the party to which we place...

    Several years back, whenever someone would post a picture of a female, a member whose SN was Lazmataz would post a one line response ie, "I'd hit it!" Recently I've noticed a poster here who posts longer replies and sometimes even creates his own threads with references to conservative topics. This poster uses the SN LazAmataz and gets confused, by many here, with the aforementioned Lazmataz. My question: With what I perceive as different styles, are these two posters one and the same?

    [SNIP] "In a generic way, he tied the “political millstone” to Democrats across the country a month ago when he said, “I am not on the ballot this fall.… But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.” [SNIP] Democrats realize it now — that, as with another former community organizer named Jim Jones, followers are expendable — but it’s too late for them despite Harry Reid’s best efforts to shield them from tough votes and cast Republicans as obstructionists when Reid himself is the source of American electoral constipation. Poor Barack. He was...

    I come into the living room to take the dogs for a walk and the TV is on NBC. All of a sudden Cynthia McFadden comes on the screen and announces "We are awaiting a speech from President Obama, who will speak from a working vacation, at Martha's Vineyard". And I spit out some coffee I had just taken. So I turn the channel to ABC and listen to his speech. Fine speech. Appropriate words and then Stephanopoulos ascribes all kinds of emotion to the speech with excellent superlatives indicating a range of emotions. I don't know but, the whole...

    The dark silhouetted trees appeared illusory, as if in a dream through the light fog, their irregular heights capping the rolling Alabama landscape on I-85 north of Montgomery. The cab's interior was awash in the soft green glow of the gauges, gadgets and screens adorning the instrument panel. Sunrise was three hours away yet, leaving a bit of quiet time to negotiate an endless supply of construction zones, and avoid haphazardly placed orange barrels while sorting through competing waves of thought and reflection. "Patience," as Ambrose Bierce flirtatiously advised us, is, "A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue."...

    President Barack Obama isn’t an overtly religious man. He and his family rarely attend church. He almost never elaborates in public about his own relationship to his Christian faith. But away from the public eye, his advisers say the president has nurtured a spirituality that’s served to help ground him during turbulent times. Every year on Aug. 4, the president’s birthday, Obama convenes a group of pastors by phone to receive their prayers for him for the year to come. During the most challenging of times, prayer circles are organized with prominent religious figures such as megachurch pastor Joel Hunter,...

    ................And I've continued to believe that Citizens United contributed to some of the problems we're having in Washington right now. You know, you have some ideological extremist who has a big bankroll, and they can entirely skew our politics. And there are a whole bunch of members of Congress right now who privately will tell you, I know our positions are unreasonable, but we're scared that if we don't go along with the tea party agenda, or the -- some particularly extremist agenda, that we'll be challenged from the right. And the threats are very explicit. And so they toe...

    President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah. The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would "waive the prohibitions in...

    The Kurdish militia captured the border town of Ras al Ayn on Sunday, which had been under rebel control since last November. A day later, the United States said it was "very concerned" at reports that the militia was about to declare self-rule in northern Syria. "Such a declaration is highly provocative, as it will certainly exacerbate tensions between Arabs and Kurds," Jen Psaki, a State Department spokeswoman, said Monday. Turkey, which embarked on a broad peace process in March with Kurdish militants at home, has warned that it won't tolerate an autonomous Kurdish province across the Syrian border. This...

    So I'm driving along and turn my Sirius radio on and still, nearly two months later, there is no FoxNews Talk. See, I like Hannity. He's A great cheerleader but, that's as far as his content is and I can't stand his idiotic setups throughout the week where he and his guests get involved in a discussions that devolves into mindless drive that, on the radio, is crosstalk. That probably works on TV but on the radio it's just aggravating noise. So I like Tom Sullivan and other hosts as an alternative and FoxNews Talk was opening me to other...

    BHO's statement contained 74 sentences. In 24 out of 74 sentences, he said "I", "me" or "my." This is not about the military, or even the CIA, which were mentioned in just 4 of the sentences. It's about BHO, and BHO alone. Congratulations, BHO, here are a few things for which you took credit in the 74 sentences: "I directed Leon Panetta... to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority..." "I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden." "I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility...
