This year, domestic terror plots peaked. There have been 32 terror-related “events” on US shores since 9/11, and 12 of those occurred in 2009.

And his political protégé, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, initially provided him with public cover.
Schumer’s outburst was overheard aboard a US Airways flight from LaGuardia Airport to Washington on Sunday.
Schumer and his seatmate, Gillibrand, were chatting on their cellphones when the plane’s captain told passengers to turn them off.
But the two Democratic senators ignored the order and kept talking — prompting a flight attendant to ask them to follow Federal Aviation Administration rules.
Schumer asked if he could finish his call. The attendant said “no” because the plane was waiting for him to finish so it could take off. The state’s senior senator ended his call, but then launched into an argument with her, claiming he was entitled to continue his chat until the cabin door was closed. “Bitch!” Schumer remarked to Gillibrand after the attendant walked away.
These liberal Elites like Schumer have nothing but contempt for the common man. They want him controlled whether through welfare programs or stifling taxes. They know better how to run our live and we should be beholding to them.
It's dirtybags like Schumer that gives New Yorkers a reputation of loud mouth arrogant jack-ss=s. Fortunately there are many of us that know better. If the man had 2 ounces of brain he would realize he ows his job to the people like that woman who was doing her job,unlike him who was elected to represent NY citizens not to be a lapdog to Reid and Pelosi. These cats think they are above any rules, they forget we can vote them out, regardless of the party. This is a good thing "it shows what he thinks of women and the kind he works and lives with." We could hardly do worse than the current Congress with both parties. A complete clean up is needed in Congress and in the Senate.

They hope that the ignorant short-term thinkers in the US (that is you and I to these sons and daughter of unmarried women).
I love my country. I hate my government especially Reid and Pelosi. May they rot.
I am especially hoping that those who voted these people in are personally hurt, they and their families for letting these evil people take over our country. A pox on all of you who did this to us through your vote

Originally, the promise was universal health care for all Americans but not one bill in the House or the Senate provides that and the main Senate bill mandates health care for all Americans whether they can afford it or not. Those who can't face a fine...or maybe even jail.
Originally, the promise was "affordable" health care but the legislation percolating in both Houses of Congress will drive health insurance costs up, not down.
Once again, reality falls short of promises and actuality fails to meet expectations.
President Barack Obama wanted health care reform to be the centerpiece of his Presidency. Now it could be the failure that limits his time in office to a single term.
If health care manages to climb off its sick bed, Obama still faces the double whammy of a sick economy and an escalating, increasingly unwinnable, war in Afghanistan to doom the legacy of his flagging Presidency.
So much hope.
So much expectation.
So little performance.
Some say it is too early to call Obama's presidency a failure. Maybe it's too late to salvage what's left of his once-promising legacy. His uptick in the polls may be short-lived, a small resurgence of public interest in health care "reform" may die once more details emerge about what that so-called reform will demand of cash-strapped Americans.
The President who promised to keep lobbyists out of government will most likely sign a bill crafted by lobbyists and lobbyists don't give a damn about the ordinary Americans who can't afford health insurance now.
The President who promised to restore hope for America faces a nation of rising unemployment, increasing bankruptcies and millions of ordinary citizens losing their homes while banks and Wall Street continue to get rich.
The President who promised change is delivering more of the same. His administration is no less secretive than that of George W. Bush, his use and abuse of government power is just as unabated as that of the former President. The National Security Agency (NSA) continues to spy on ordinary Americans, the Department of Homeland Security -- the largest, most intrusive government agency in history -- continues to use the rights-robbing USA Patriot Act to deny rights and freedoms to American citizens and government continues to grow at an alarming rate.
This President is one huuuuuuge disappointment.
He's a world class campaigner, but has turned out have zero can do leadership skills.He's the Commander in Chief of our armed forces and hates the military, so go figure that one out!
