Just why not the UN establish safe zones in the Mid East and keep them over there.

We need a non-politician to take charge of the efforts against evil...

I quit thinking about anything politically.  It's unhealthy.

Just saw on the news that the President is hell-bent on getting 10,000 Syrian refugees here in the next year. When I read discussions on this subject, the "pro" side invariably says"It takes at least two years for a refugee to pass muster to enter the US, so what's the problem"? Sooooo, what's the problem here?

No Problem.

Lets see if I have this correctly interpreted.....

Takes 2 years for a Syrian refugee to pass 'muster'.....  But Obama wants to import 10,000 next year....

How do you accomplish that?  Curious minds want to know.......????? ??? ???

Truth in Media: Origin of ISIS

Must watch video. 12 minutes long but very good video about the creation of ISIS and what it will take to get rid of them.

Today, the giant pharmaceutical company Pfizer got formal board approval for its acquisition of Irish pharmaceutical manufacturer Allergan. The purpose of the deal isn’t simply to create the world's biggest drug maker. It’s to enable Pfizer to switch its corporate nationality from American to Irish, thereby slashing its corporate tax rate.

Okay, if Pfizer doesn't want to pay U.S. taxes, then it shouldn't get any benefits of U.S. corporate citizenship. The U.S. government should no longer protect Pfizer’s intellectual property, or give Pfizer access to basic research coming out of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, or represent Pfizer’s interests in international negotiations over trade. In addition, the federal government should use its bargaining power under Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA to negotiate the lowest possible drug prices with Pfizer (something the U.S. government is barred from doing with U.S. pharmaceutical companies). And Pfizer should no longer have the right to contribute to American elections through its Political Action Committee, or to lobby U.S. politicians.

Gee and which candidate will do this?   

I believe Trump has already called for this... 
We know Bernie never met a tax he didn't love...
Hillary is too busy writing her acceptance speech to worry about such things right now.

Gee what a novel Idea - put the responsibility back on the Parents


==================================================
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Newly released state figures show that in some Michigan school districts half or more of students are chronically absent. The Detroit News reports numbers issued this month by the Michigan Center for Educational Performance and Information indicate that in the Detroit Public Schools district 64.8 percent missed at least 10 days in 2014-15. Michigan considers students who miss 10 or more days a year chronically absent. Others with high rates include River Rouge at 57.2 percent, Flint at 54.2 percent, Pontiac at 48.6 percent and Benton Harbor at 48.4 percent. A new Michigan law that takes effect in June aims to encourage attendance by allowing the state to halt welfare benefits to families whose children are chronically absent. School officials, meanwhile, say they're working to keep kids in class.

There's a certain right-wing idiot on MT that apparently didn't hear the updated news that the female wasn't the one that detonated the suicide vest.
But then righties often parrot incorrect information.


The woman who was thought to have blown herself up in the Saint Denis gun siege was actually killed when another member of the Islamic cell let off a bomb, according to a source within the French police.
Hasna Ait Boulahcen, 26, was believed to have become Europe's first female suicide bomber when she let off her explosive vest at a flat in the suburb of Paris during a police raid on Wednesday morning.
But a police source has now revealed she is believed to have died because another member of her terrorist cell let off a bomb as armed officers attempted to storm the third floor property.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.
