    • Federal deficit to soar in 2016 after Paul Ryan - Barack Obama deal
      [quote]..[/quote]

      So much for both sides keeping to their campaign goals of cutting the deficit. It's pretty sick that Obama skates out of office having pushed the federal deficit up 24% in one year. I know Bush was reckless with spending, but for Obama to do it at the last minute, and at such a steep increase, is eclipsing Bush by quite a bit.

    • US to pay Iran $1.7 billion in debt and interest
      [quote]..[/quote]

      What happened was that 1801 the US Navy had frigates and sloops manned by tough motherfuckers.

      In 2016 you have US Navy patrol boats that break down and US sailors that cry when they're rescued and treated professionally by the Iranian Coast Guard.

      The lesson? Stop listening to the pro-eternal war Israel Lobby and don't let your chickenhawk mouth write a check that your chickenshit ass is no longer capable of cashing.

    • US imposes new sanctions on Iran, less than one day after nuclear deal went into effect
      The United States on Sunday imposed sanctions against 11 individuals and entities involved in Iran's ballistic missile program as a result of Tehran's firing of a medium-range ballistic missile, a new punishment one day after the Obama administration lifted economic penalties against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program.

      The missile program "poses a significant threat to regional and global security, and it will continue to be subject to international sanctions," said Adam J. Szubin, the Treasury's acting undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence in a statement.

      He said the U.S. has made it clear that it will "vigorously press sanctions against Iranian activities" outside the terms of the nuclear agreement. Szubin cited Iran's "support for terrorism, regional destabilization, human rights abuses, and ballistic missile program."

    • 7 Dead, 21 wounded in weekend shootings across Chicago
      [quote]..[/quote]

      :thumbup:

      Back in my more stupid days (twas around 19 years old) the GF and I spent a weekend in Chitown. Going home, I missed an exit, and this was well before GPS and cell phones. Basically ended up down in the Stony Island part. Christ, it was a 3rd world country back then...can't imagine it now. All I remember was looking up at the Sky Bridge and praying the Honda would make it there somehow. :lol:

    • US apologizes for Iran naval incursion
      The US has apologised to Iran after 10 American sailors were arrested for entering Iranian waters, the commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards naval forces has said.

      General Ali Fadavi accused those detained of "unprofessional" acts.

      But he suggested the group, who are being held by the guards, could be released soon.

      The incident comes at a sensitive time, as the US and Iran try to implement the deal on Iran's nuclear activities.

    • 42% of US Voters Reject Both Republican and Democratic Parties
      Disapproval with the US government has pushed the percentage of Americans refusing to register with the two major political parties in the United States above 40 percent for the fifth consecutive year, a poll released by Gallup revealed on Monday.

      "The rise in political independence is likely related to Americans' frustration with party gridlock in the federal government," Gallup said of the Democratic and Republican parties. "[D]issatisfaction with the government has ranked among the leading issues when US adults are asked to name the most important problem facing the United States."

      In the Gallup poll, 42 percent of voters registered as independents, compared with 29 percent as Democrats and 25 percent as Republicans.

      To analyze voting trends, Gallup explained, pollsters must determine whether independent voters lean toward the Democratic or Republican parties, giving Democrats a slight edge.

    • Top General John Kelly Warns of New ISIS Threat on US Southern Border
      America is vulnerable to attack by Islamic extremists from a southern flank, and it's not the U.S./Mexico border, a top general says.

      The number of ISIS devotees living in or coming from the Caribbean is on the rise, according to U.S. Southern Command chief Gen. John Kelly, who oversees security throughout South America.

      He said he has seen a shift in rhetoric by top ISIS leaders geared toward a "few very, very radical mosques" in the region, essentially directing would-be disciples to direct attacks from their homes rather than trek to the Middle East and risk capture by law enforcement.

      "It seems like the Islamic extremists and terrorists have shifted a lot of their message, and that is, 'Hey, rather than come to Syria, why don't you stay at home and do San Bernardino, or do Boston, or do Fort Hood?'" Kelly said Friday at a Pentagon press briefing.

    • After San Bernardino attack, 71 percent of California voters believe another terror attack is likely
      A month after a radicalized Islamic couple killed 14 people in San Bernardino, a new poll shows more than 70 percent of California voters believe another terrorist attack in the state is either very or somewhat likely in the near future.

      Barely 1 in 5 voters said they are very confident the CIA, FBI and other agencies are capable of detecting an imminent attack and stopping it, the Field Poll released Friday shows. But at the same time, more than half of voters -- including both Democrats and Republicans -- worry the government's fight against terror will go too far in violating Americans' freedoms and civil liberties.

      With talk of terror a major theme on the presidential campaign trail and the rampage in San Bernardino so fresh in our minds, Golden State voters are even more jittery now than they were in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the East Coast, the poll shows.
