Kadaffy was a problem way back in the 70s and is suspected of being a perpetrator in that plane bombing in Scotland killing 300 or 400. He was a complete, utter, total, chronic and habitual A$$hole.

yes, I agree JLM, the history of kadaffy long before his demise, was horrible, he definitely had done many bad deeds,
including arranging the downing of the Scotland plane, to expect and receive his last
hit, and that was long overdue. he often appeared to be quite insane, and very arrogant.

    • “Everybody has it but us”
  • Trump says he’s extremely “militaristic,” but one must know when to act; notes that he was against Iraq War for long time
  • Says U.S. needs another General Douglas MacArthur
  • Reiterates concern for U.S. veterans
    • “They’ve been treated like third-class citizens and it’s going to stop”


  • NOTE: Bush, speaking yday in Davenport, Iowa, defended some of his brother’s Iraq War decisions as president
    • “Taking out Saddam Hussein turned out to be a pretty good deal,” Bush said
Earlier: Jeb Bush Says His Brother’s Security ’Mission Was Accomplished’ in Iraq





I heard that Bush has dropped to 7th in popularity among the GOP candidates. Looks like his brilliance in defending his brother's war record isn't panning out for him.

If he didn't get elected President it probably wouldn't be the end of the world- unless of course it was Hillary that beat him out of it.

so was the rest of the world

"The Case of the Disappearing Dubya"

The Case Of The Disappearing Dubya

It goes into some fundamental differences between "them and us" and the gullibility of people, and effectiveness of repeated lies and distortions. Have at it!

"George W. Bush will not be giving speeches on behalf of his brother anytime soon. In fact, if the Republican establishment has its way, Dubya won't be anywhere near a camera for the 2016 election. (Who could forget his five-minute boilerplate video, shown in lieu of his attendance at the 2012 Republican National Convention?) His disappearance from the national spotlight is a strange phenomenon in contemporary American politics. Under normal circumstances, Bush would take his place along other ex-presidents as a national figurehead of some influence, especially with his brother as a presidential candidate. Yet, his deafening silence is indicative of not only his disastrous administration, but the GOP’s attempt to erase him from the country’s memory.

This upcoming election marks the latest great GOP purge of history. The disappearing Dubya isn't a coincidence. It's part of a larger trend of former Republican presidential candidates being faded to black by the party whose mascot, ironically, is the elephant, an animal known for memory and longevity. In contrast to this systematic erasure, the Democrats trots out its winners and losers every four years. We still hear from Jesse Jackson, Al Gore and Bill Clinton—and John Kerry, of course, is a key part of the Obama administration. It's presumed that when President Obama finishes his last day in office, he will also be a public figure working both internationally and within the party.

Compare that with the last few Republican presidents and candidates, and it seems like the parties are playing by different rules. Nobody has pulled a more thorough disappearing act than George W. Bush.

Unfortunately for the Republicans, Democrats and independents do have functioning memory cells. They can recall two disastrous wars, mismanagement of Hurricane Katrina, the war profiteering of Vice President Dick Cheney, rampant Wall Street deregulation, and huge tax cuts for the rich that helped the national debt to balloon out of control in tandem with defense spending. Unlike Reagan, there is no health reason for Dubya’s lack of public appearances. In fact, he is still around and healthy as a horse, perhaps due to all his vacation time as president. (Bush holds the title of all-time great presidential vacationer, clocking in at more than 400 days of R&R.)"

well we, who wouldn't touch the republican party with a ten foot pole, do remember clearly what a failure
bush was as a president, but we don't have to take ownership of him, thankfully the republican party does,
and I'm sure they would sell the rights to any memory of him if an offer came along, hope they don't
hold their breath waiting.

Somebody Tell Jeb Bush That The Pope Actually Is A Scientist

“He’s not a scientist, he’s a religious leader,” Bush says in a video of the remarks .

In fact, the pope studied chemistry and worked as a chemist.

Back when Pope Francis was still going by the handle of Jorge Bergoglio, he earned a master's degree in chemistry from the University of Buenos Aires.

Fox News is skeptical of Jeb Bush’s plan to cut taxes for the rich.


Bush’s recently-unveiled tax plan would lower the effective tax rate of those earning $10 million or more from 26 percent to 21 percent , and would lower the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent. Even the conservative-leaning Tax Foundation admits that the tax cuts would reduce overall revenue by at least $3.6 trillion in a decade, and that the richest top 1 percent of earners (filers making at least $406,000 per year) would see their incomes increase by 11.6 percent . By contrast, middle-class earners would only see their incomes increase by less than 3 percent. Bush defends the tax cuts by claiming they would spur a sustained 4 percent growth rate each quarter.


But in an interview today with Fox’s Chris Wallace, Bush looked visibly uncomfortable when Wallace pointed out that Bush’s tax plan would, according to his last six years of tax returns, would
give the former Florida governor a $3 million tax cut .


He also pointed out that his father, George H. W. Bush, called Ronald Reagan’s theory that lower tax rates would spur income growth “voodoo economics.”

Yep, he killed 10s of thousands of his own citizens. But that's a pretty piss poor reason to invade a sovereign state where even more people were killed for no good reason, without having ANY real strategy for Iraq beyond getting Hussein and bringing him to justice and/or ending his existence.


It's like Bush and the White House gang were told the situation and they all went, "Hey look, there's a butterfly".

Things haven't been easy for Jeb Bush in the 2016 race. He had incorrect numbers in a speech about Syria. He spent millions in TV ads without a bump in the polls. And now his struggling campaign has forgotten how to Internet.

A website sporting the name of the former Florida governor, JebBush.com, now redirects to Donald Trump's official campaign site, according to the The Daily Caller .

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his super PAC are set to dominate the TV airwaves between now and the Granite State primary, reserving more than $14 million in commercials on both New Hampshire and Boston stations — including two Super Bowl spots.

It’s a clear sign that Bush operatives, despite criticism over already spending more than $35 million nationally on commercials for just 4 percent in the polls, are doubling down on a strategy of massive TV buys.

Bush, who’s struggled to shine with his debate skills, appears to be banking on TV to better convey his message

It appears from what I have seen and read about Jeb Bush that he is something of a political and intellectual lightweight. That is not surprising considering how feeble the intellect of his older brother was. But don't count him out - he has a huge amount of cash at his disposal and his brother (a man considered by many to be the worst president in US history) actually got elected twice.

Gadafi wanted to create the United States of Africa.... We can't have that happen if our pyramid currency can continue.
China and Russia are trying to dump the Green Back from their currency reserve. And we keep manipulating the market to hinder them each time.


The whole world market is based on a simple pyramid scheme, And the trust is gone. Things will only get nastier as we continue to preserve our dominance.
