Why is there no post about the scandalous global warmning hoax. Your children have been taught lies by their teachers for the past 20 or so years. Where is the outrage over this evil hoax? Lets get with it openline and go after the facts that will monitarily bankrupt this country, instead of the bs like Tiger Woods etc. Its no wonder OBAMA slipped into office with people more interested in his style rather than his substanance.

Wasn't it Obama's campaign promise that if elected he will on his first day in office pull all our troops out of the mideast war?

No, Obama did not promise to pull all troops out. He said Iraq was a lie but we needed to finish the job in Afganistan.

What about the four cops gunned down in Seattle after the suspect was let off the hook? C'mon lets have some more cop bashing. At least the four dead cops wont receive those outrageous pension.

6:18 agreed.

You think I am being sarcastic, but I actually heard a conversation similar to that at the VFW the other night.

As more and more of the population learns of the richness of public pensions in Illinois the anger will grow. Sort of a shame, but the reality is every premature death of every public servant simply reduces the burden on all of us. sad to be painted into that corner. But their greed is the reason segments of the population want to see them cash their chips in early.

Actually pensions that are fully funded by the employee and employer work well and don't cost the public an enormous amount of money. It's when the funds are raided by the state government when problems arise. Do your research bro. I for one feel are public officials deserve a decent retirement plan, especially if they funded it themselves.

I did my research, and if the pensions were not mandated by the state in the case of municipalities and did not offer such ridiculous benefits or if they simply did not exist than we would not have a fund that was filled with IOUs.

Get rid of the pensions and health care benefits in retirement and go to a 401K plan and a "cost of" insurance program and the problem goes away in the long run. We are still straddled with a huge liability for the current employees, but that should be pared down by age as IBM and others did >40 old plan, less than 40 new plan. At least that would contain the cost somewhat and get us on the way.

Once again if the pensions were not there there would be nothing to raid. Government at all levels has proven itself totally irresponsible, a pension is simply candy in front of a baby. Get rid of all of them in Government.

"As your commander in chief"...sheesh this asshole could not lead a troop of chimpanzees to a bunch on bananas mush less direct our armed forces. I feel sorry for every single man and woman serving under this douche.

I hope all of you who voted for this buffoon now have learned your lesson and make this dildo a one term President.

So, it turns out invading other countries for flimsy reasons is really costly and wasteful and makes everyone hate you. Who would have thought?

I voted for Obama and like most of his policies. I think this is ill-advised, though.

"Where is the outrage" over global warming?

Ask a polar bear.

Do you think that pulling troops out of Afganistan and sending them to Iraq had anything to do with the war going bad?

P.S. Where's Bin Laden? Maybe we could have caught him if we had stayed.

I think that Cheney should lead the 30,000 troops into battle.

Ask a polarbear. The outrage should be over the lies and deception that caused hundreds of millions of low IQ people to beleive this crap and the carpet baggers that promolgated it for their own pofit.

We've had global warming ever since the last ice age. So what's the big deal. We will adjust to it just like we adjust to everything else.

Let's see. Global warming means sea levels rise. Liberal strongholds like NewYork, LA, New Orleans are all sea side and would go under water. Frankly I do not see the problem.
