    CORRUPTION is when a man, like obama, uses the power of the state, to confiscate other people's hard earned money, squanders it, and finances loser companies, in exchange for political contributions, in an effort to get himself reelected.

    Why are we spending billions of dollars in financial aid to Israel? It should stop. The Israeli Government is systematically stealing Palestinian land, building settlements on that land and keeping the Palestinian people in virtual concentration Camps on their own land. Small wonder the U.S. is hated. The U.N. should send peace keeping forces into Israel/Palestine and commence war crime trials. The Israeli thugs that are running that country are disgraceful.

    Oh Bibi... the bully of the middle east.. such the hypocrite. When will you let the IAEA in Israel to inspect your "peaceful" nuclear weapons? Rather than dictating/demanding your neighbors to be the type of friend you want them to be. You start wars that you expect the U.S. to finish. GTF out of my country and stop begging for more money and weapons. Go back and try negotiating with your neighbors. FYI, negotiating is two way street.. it requires compromise.

    Bibi Netanyahu does not do anything without the approval of Sheldon Adelson, the vice king of gambling.

    Bibi was handpicked by Sheldon Adelson for the prime minister of Israel. Sheldon Adelson single handedly drove Ehud Olmert from power in Israel.

    Sheldon Adelson wants to destroy all arabs and Sheldon Adelson wants to drive Obama from the WhiteHouse.
    An Israeli attack on Iran will accomplish both ends.

    Sheldon Adelson gambling business is one of the dirtiest in the business, laundering hundreds of millions of dirty money, including drug trafficking money from a Mexican drug kingpin. Just search the web for "Zhenli Ye" , who lost $125 Million US at the Vegas Venetian, all laundered drug money. Sheldon Adelson feted him with his private jets and other vices.

    Why wasn't Sheldon Adelson busted for that ? Bush/Cheney , then occupants of the WhiteHouse were Sheldon Adelson's poodles.

    Search NewYorker magazine write up on Sheldon Adelson, from no less a fellow jew.
    The biggest threat to mid-east peace is Sheldon Adelson. The Adelsons openly supported the
    Arizona Tea Party , until the Jared Loughner mass murder.

    Obama disrespected the Prime Minister of Israel ... demanded that they go back to their pre-1967 borders, which would be the same as the U.S. being pressured to give Texas back to Mexico ... and, Obama doesn't want to support our ally, Israel against Iran ... a terrorist state, who has vowed to blow Israel off the face of the earth !!! I'd say that Obama has alienated Israel, and made it a anti-Obama issue, all by himself !!! Save America ... Israel ... and the World ... Dump Obama in 2012 !!!

    Netanyahu should take is butt back to Israel. Only reason he is here is to help brainwash U.S. into believing his way is the only right way. I don't buy it!

    Good for the President I just listened to his AIPAC speech. He was wise to point out that everyone keeping a cool head, is wiser than going off tilting at windmills. Bombing Iran is not going to solve any problems it would only create more problems.

    We do not need a repeat of wars.... as per the normal knee jerk GOP.

    And I will iterate: Obama-Biden 2012-2016

    Oh Howard ....you have missed my area where those bumper stickers abound.

      And what area would that be? I haven't seen many stickers around here period, regardless of party.

    Jerry, I do not know where you come from but you need to take you racist back to the woods that you can hang with your KKK buddies. I am sick all this racist mess on these sites. If you can not speak your mind by using respect, do not write anything and the world will be a better place.
