A lot is being made about a recent Facebook story out of Missouri. Republican Debbie Dunnegan is being attacked, ostensibly, for calling for the assassination of President Obama.
Here’s what she said on Facebook that got all the drama started.“I have a question for all my friends who have served or are currently serving in our military … having not put on a uniform nor taken any type military oath, there has to be something that I am just not aware of. But I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy. I know he is supposedly the commander in chief, but the Constitution gives you the authority. What am I missing? Thank you for your bravery and may God keep you safe.”FN)!
The meeting comes even as the WHO is struggling to deal with an Ebola outbreak that is now threatening to spread to Europe and the United States. But WHO Director Margaret Chan defended the tobacco meeting by saying Ebola is not the only issue the body can be concerned about.“Yes, Ebola is truly an issue of international concern,” she said to reporters today. “But, you know, tobacco. If we put the evidence on the table, tobacco control is the still the most cost-effective and efficient way of reducing unnecessary disease and death arising from using such harmful products.” FN01

Everything wrong with the USAEverything wrong with the USA: A Wry Look At An Old MythEverything wrong with the USA by ComradeSch
“The USA is the best country in the world!”
No, actually, it is not the #1 country in the world… Unless you count defence spending, incarcerated persons per capita, and Christian fundamentalists.
According to US Economy, a division of About.com that deals with economic news related to the US Economy:
“The U.S. military budget is $756.4 billion for FY 2015. Military spending is greater than Medicare ($529 billion), Medicaid ($331 billion), or the interest payment on the debt ($251). It's also more than the three next largest departments combined: Health and Human Services ($73.1 billion), Education ($68.6 billion) and Housing and Urban Development ($32.6 billion).”

SATIRE: Bottled Water Blamed For Florida SinkholesSATIRE: Bottled Water Blamed For Florida Sinkholes by BlameThe1st
Florida Bans Zephyrhills Bottled Water
Allegations over recent statewide sinkholes leads to ban of in-state bottled water company products.
Tim Russet Potato
Florida residents and visitors who prefer their water bottled will have to settle for out-of-state brands. That's because the Sunshine State has banned the sale of Zephyrhills bottled water.
The bill banning Zephyrhills products passed through the Florida House and Senate earlier this week and is being sent to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott, who is expected to sign the bill into law.
Once passed, the law will prohibit the sale of all water bottled by Zephyrhills within the state of Florida. No other bottled water brands will be affected.
Zephyrhills, which sources its water in-state from Crystal Springs, was targeted by Florida lawmakers due to allegations that its water-collection methods have contributed to sinkholes within the state.
Florida has been the location of three major sinkholes within the past

SATIRE: NYC Bans WalkingSATIRE: NYC Bans Walking by BlameThe1st
New York City Bans Walking Long Distances
Pedestrians wanting to walk farther than five city blocks will have to take public transit.
Visitors wishing to tour the Big Apple will have to take a cab, bus, or train. That’s no longer a recommendation. That’s the law.
The New York City Council approved a ban on walking long distances within city limits. The bill passed with a 49-1 vote, with one city council member abstaining.
Under this new law, pedestrians are prohibited from walking farther than five city blocks. Those that break the law could face fines up to $25, the average fare for a single cab trip.
The law was proposed to encourage New Yorkers to utilize public transportation, be it the subway, the bus system, or one of the city’s iconic yellow taxi cabs.
Since the start of the economic recession, public transit revenues have declined as residents have opted to save money by walking, biking, or carpooling.

Red Humour- America, Invade the Vatican!Swiss Guard: 135 Members, No Tanks, Artillery or AircraftRed Humour- America, Invade the Vatican! by ComradeSch
Al-Quaeda: About 25,000 members, Has IED's, rockets, and potentially WMD's.
Vatican: One of the richest organizations in the World (has been collecting gold for 1,600 years). Wealth nearly incalculable
Al-Quaeda: Relies on stealing enemy weapons and Molotov cocktails to sustain combat. Main resource is crude oil.
Vatican: 100 acres of land.
Al-Quaeda: Has no specific territory, operating globally.
So, my friends, why note invade the Vatican, steal all the gold, and sell it off? After all, with that kind of money, you could BUY the entire Middle East and stop wasting lives!

Petition- Please take a look.I wrote a petition to my nation's Prime Minister, asking for one simple concession: To allow minor political parties to be given a voice in the legislature. After all, the point of a political party is to unite with other people of the same ideology to show that you believe in it. So, it's defeating the point to have a bloc of parties tha do the same thing and stifle other, more radical parties and keep them from having a say-and whether of the left or right wings, in my opinion, that is infringing on freedom of speech, and I won't stand for it.Petition- Please take a look. by ComradeSch
If you agree, sign my petition, and allow voting for minor parties, so the Canadian House of Commons can truly represent all Canadians, however moderate or extreme they are.

The Presidents: George W. BushThe Presidents: George W. Bush by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
The Presidency of George W. Bush was largely defined on one September day. As a result of the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, the president's strength, efficiency, and credibility would all be tested. Bush was born in 1946 in Texas and his entrance into politics was expected by his family. He went to Yale like his father, President George H.W. Bush, and then he served into the Texas Air National Guard where he learned to fly. This meant that he did not go to Vietnam. He graduated from Harvard Business School in 1975 and returned to Texas to work in his family's big oil industry.
When he was forty years old he gave up alcohol and after encouragement from Reverend Billy Graham, he became dedicated Christian. This made him one of the most religious presidents since Jimmy Carter. His public profile increased when he gained part-ownership of the Texas Rangers baseball team. Then in 1994, he ran as a Republican for governor of Texas w
The Presidents: Jimmy CarterThe Presidents: Jimmy Carter by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
Jimmy Carter was a born-again Christian from the south who wanted to see a more compassionate and caring government domestically and in the entire world. In the end, he would go down as one of the worst presidents of the 20th century. Carter was born in Plains, Georgia on October 1, 1924. He was a peanut farmer and after hard work went to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis in 1943. He married Rosalynn Smith three years later. He worked on the development of US submarines and then retired in 1953 to return to manage his family farm.
Carter refused to join the White Citizens Council in 1958, an organization established to prevent desegregation. His business was temporarily boycotted, but four years later he entered politics. He entered as a Democrat into the state senate and then ran for governor. He thoughts on segregation were generally confusing. He may have not joined the White Citizens Council, but late when he ran for president he said, "I see noth
The Presidents: Ronald ReaganThe Presidents: Ronald Reagan by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
Ronald Wilson Reagan would start and leave his presidency incredibly popular. He would become known as the "Great Communicator" with the American people, largely due to his years as an actor. He was the oldest man to ever be elected and he would have one of the most revolutionary presidencies in history. Reagan was born in 1911 in Tampico, Illinois and lived through his early years in a family of modest means. When he was a teenager, he first got interested in politics. President Calvin Coolidge was in the White House and his economic policies of cutting taxes and reducing government spending inspired Reagan. Nevertheless, after graduating from Eureka College in 1932, he voted for Democrat Franklin Roosevelt. He worked as a radio sports announcer before being offered a contract from Warner Brothers in 1940. In the 1950s, Reagan worked for the Sunday television show "General Electric Theater" and eventually entered politics. He married Nancy Davis whil
The Presidents: George H.W. BushThe Presidents: George H.W. Bush by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
George Herbert Walker Bush moved into the White House with the same hopes that brought in his former boss, Ronald Reagan, but while he would have great success in foreign policy, this would be overlooked due to domestic issues and his breaking of a promise during the campaign trail. This would put Bush in a similar position of two of the three other vice presidents that replaced the president of whom they served (John Adams and Martin Van Buren). Although Bush would have bright moments, ultimately he would go down the same presidential drain that Adams and Van Buren did.
Bush was born in Massachusetts in 1924 and, like his father, would graduate from Yale. Continuing to follow the steps of his father, he would join the military and became the youngest naval pilot of World War 2. He then built a career in the oil industry before entering politics. Bush ran for Congress as a Republican in Texas and served two terms in the House of Representatives, but l
Obama Wastes $500 Million On Imaginary Green JobsHere's a little secret: whenever you hear politicians promise that they're going to "create" jobs, what they really mean is that they're going to take taxpayer money and give it to their corporate cronies in order to line their already bloated pockets.Obama Wastes $500 Million On Imaginary Green Jobs by BlameThe1st
Republicans are often associated with this form of "trickle-down" economics, but Democrats are just as guilty of it. Case in point: Obama was recently revealed to have spent $500 million on "green job" that don't exist!
VIDEO: GAO Report Reveals Obama Administration Blew $500 Million on Green Jobs That Don't ExistA federal audit shows that nearly a half-billion dollars in government funds was spent on training workers for so-called "green jobs." The only problem is that not enough positions in the growing industry exist.
The findings — released in a June
Obama: Big Fat Liar!At this point, Obama isn't even trying to cover his deceit anymore. He couldn't be any more transparent about his dishonesty if his nose was growing while his pants were on fire!Obama: Big Fat Liar! by BlameThe1st
Case in point: during his speech at an Arizona high school, while selling his ideas on housing market reform, which included scrapping Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (which, in light of the housing bubble burst, is akin to suggesting throwing out your busted kerosene heater AFTER it burns your house to the ground and AFTER people had warned you countless times that it posed a fire hazard), Obama decided to make a few snide remarks at the protesters outside calling him a "socialist," telling them "I actually believe in the free market."
Since freaking when?!?!
When in the holy royal delectable plot of Princess Celestia have you ever believed in the free market? Was it when you bailed-out the banks and auto industry, or when you were offering corporate welfare
This Is Just Pathetic!Over a month ago, Salon writer Michael Lind posed this "unanswerable question" to libertarians: "If libertarianism is such a good idea, why aren't there any libertarian countries?" Since then, libertarians by the drove have responded to his "unanswerable question" by--shockingly enough--answering it!This Is Just Pathetic! by BlameThe1st
But rather than admit defeat, in his recent post "Grow Up Libertarians" (classy title!), Lind simply wipes the egg from his face and doubles-down on his position, insisting that his "unanswerable question" remains unanswered, despite the myriad of answers that libertarians have provided him.
This pathetic behavior is common among the intellectually dishonest. Rather than admit that their insipid questions do indeed have real answers, they merely brush off these answers by claiming they don't count for some reason or another.
Michelle Obama's Unintentional ComedyWant to hear a knee-slapper? Obama is making Americans free from government!Michelle Obama's Unintentional Comedy by BlameThe1st
That would be so hilarious if Michelle Obama weren't trying to pass it off as serious.In an e-mail to supporters, First Lady Michelle Obama says she grew up in a family that didn't need help from the government, and that her husband is working to make Americans free from dependence on government once again.
In her message sent yesterday from firstname.lastname@example.org, Mrs. Obama says:
"When I was growing up, a family like mine — living on my hard-working father's salary at the city water plant — could build a solid life without much debt and without relying on any form of public assistance. Today, for too many families, that American promise is no longer within reach.
"Barack is working to fix that and he needs solid Democrats in Con
Daily Kos Smites Rand Paul and Edward SnowdenCurrent events have caused many pundits to politically backpedal.Daily Kos Smites Rand Paul and Edward Snowden by BlameThe1st
When the federal government was revealed to have the power to target American citizens for drones strikes and to collect metadata on their electronic communications, Fox News neocons like Sean Hannity were quick to run with the stories in order to smear Obama--even though they once supported similar policies under Bush.
And as neocons now oppose policies under Obama that they would have supported under Bush, leftists now support policies under Obama they would have opposed under Bush.
Case in point is a recent smear piece against Rand Paul on the far-left cesspool Daily Kos.
This blog post starts off by alarming readers that the "Republican party has gone so far to the right, that they are now in the throes of being hijacked by the denizens of libertarian wingnutistan." (Of course, the
