It seems there may have been a little neglect on the part of the state department in terms of security

The response from the administration? "don't worry about investigating our consulate that was raided and ambassador that was killed, we have already apprehended and jailed the evil disgusting free speech exerciser who we lied about causing a riot"

If we could run are households and businesses the way they run the government, then this would be a happy place and we would have nothing to bitch about ?

Wait a minute....... It already is a happy place according to Barrack !

That is what I am trying to clarify with Opinyawn ! I am truly trying to see his perspective ? He seems to be part of the 47% that supports Obama, so I am confused as why he seems upset that Romney made that statement !

I can give Obama credit for giving the order to take out Osama ! But it would have been beneficial had he given credit to those that layed the ground work to make it possible !

I still do not understand why they did not put GM through a structured bankruptcy ? It would seem to me that would have eliminated some of the garbage they produce (some not all) ? To me it seems that they have a false sence that thier garbage is ok and they do not have to improve thier product ?

How long untill they go under again ?

Currently the midsize is the most popular size car sold in the United States. Chevy bombed because they are still behind the times. They are not fixing the problem by tossing cash at it. They need a new business model(just one of many things they need).

This is how America stacks up


#1 Fusion

#2 Fusion Hybrid

#16 Malibu

#17 Chrysler 200

#19 Avenger

I just read a provision of Obamacare. This is crazy. If a patient on Medicare is re admitted to the hospital due to complications the hospital will be fined. Another example of government interfering with our private lives. I work in public safety and see people going to the hospital 4-5 times a month. I guess Obama is banking on these fines to help fund Obamacare and help fund his huge entitlement programs.

I see the reasoning behind these fines to help get better patient care but I think we have great doctors how it is. The doctors don't need the government in the business of patient care and what is good care or not. People react differently to different treatments and not everyone will recover the same.

The entry models are mostly junk, why do you think the Japanese cars took off ?
As far as I am concerned, GM has not built a truck since 1972 ! Although the old square bodied S-10 platform was pretty solid !

Point is, most junk produced gets purged, but it seems GM has been rewarded ?

Chrysler could be in the same boat, but it seems that Fiat is taking them in a more responsible direction ?

Like I said, it is like free cars for everyone but you will not be able to find gas !
Since Medicare pays about forty cents on the dollar, and a lot of docs will no longer take Medicare/Medicade . That trend will continue untill the care is nonexistent or substandard ?
