Republican House passes bill extending payroll tax cuts

WASHINGTON — Defiant Republicans pushed legislation through the House Tuesday night that would keep alive Social Security payroll tax cuts for some 160 million Americans at President Barack Obama’s request — but also would require construction of a Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline that has sparked a White House veto threat.

Passage, on a largely party-line vote of 234-193, sent the measure toward its certain demise in the Democratic-controlled Senate, triggering the final partisan showdown of a remarkably quarrelsome year of divided government.

The legislation “extends the payroll tax relief, extends and reforms unemployment insurance and protects Social Security — without job-killing tax hikes,” Republican House Speaker John Boehner declared after the measure had cleared.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/republicans-plan-to-push-payroll-tax-cut-bill-through-house-despite-white-house-veto-threat/2011/12/13/gIQAZJRYsO_print.html

Now, let’s see what kind of lies and deception will come from the democrats on this one.  Either Harry Reid will sit on it in the Senate as he has most every other bill the House has sent him, or the alleged president will veto it, as he has threatened.  They don’t care one whit about the payroll tax reduction.  They don’t care one whit about the American people.  It’s their way or the highway.

“Democracy” is really breaking out in Libya

This is democracy?

Oh, yes.  We are officially standing with this.

Kadafi captured alive and then scheduled for trial…..

Nope.  Tortured then Shot in the head.

I am beginning to understand what Ron Paul is talking about.  What you want to bet we are sending money to these animals.

(Even before Gadhafi’s death, the U.S. moved swiftly to assist Libya’s National Transitional Council, providing the rebel-led group with financial assistance. In July, the U.S., along with allies in Europe and the Middle East, recognized the NTC as Libya’s official government. And last month, the U.S. ambassador to Libya returned to Tripoli to lead a newly reopened American Embassy in a post-Gadhafi era.) http://news.yahoo.com/us-focused-promoting-democracy-libya-160624008.html

Hillary Clinton in Libya visit to support democracy

18 October 2011 Last updated at 13:01 ET

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has travelled to Libya on an unannounced visit aimed at showing support for the Libyan people and building ties.

Mrs Clinton held talks with top officials from the NTC – Chairman Mustafa Abdul Jalil, Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril and Finance Minister Ali Tarhouni.

She is the first US cabinet-level official to visit since Col Muammar Gaddafi was ousted.

She said the US offered support to all those who “believe in democracy” and said people must renounce violence and give up arms.

Fast forward to October 20, 2011:

Arab broadcasters showed graphic images of the balding, goateed Gadhafi – wounded, with a bloodied face and shirt – but alive. Later video showed fighters rolling Gadhafi’s lifeless body over on the pavement, stripped to the waist and a pool of blood under his head.

Standing, he was shoved along a Sirte road by fighters who chanted “God is great.” Gadhafi appears to struggle against them, stumbling and shouting as the fighters push him onto the hood of a pickup truck.

He was driven around lying on the hood of a truck, according to the video. One fighter is seen holding him down, pressing on his thigh with a pair of shoes in a show of contempt.

Really disgusting.
