Now that you've so painstakingly pointed out the rights and responsibilities of the people's elected officials -- please enumerate the rights and responsibilities of the people.

Veritas,

Either you did not read Article 1 section 8 in its entirety, or you deliberately left out over two thirds of the text pertaining to the Power of Congress. The remaining Powers are: To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

To establish Post Offices and post Roads;

To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

DonnaMay, why did you feel a need to re-post this?

Were you hoping it would make more sense the second time around?

You are the very definition of "troll."

The racism is clearly evident.

When will this public newspaper put a stop to it?

This is a sick farce.

None of these loud-mouthed hooples could point out Benghazi on a map . . . or even spell it.

Why all this fake outrage about Benghazi?

There's only one explanation for this absurd hatred of America's President and Commander-in-Chief:

Racism.

This newspaper has now aligned itself with terrorists like Najibullah Zazi.

You people better believe the U.S. is tracking all of MDN's phone calls and emails.

Treason will not be tolerated.

will, glad to amaze you, but FYI, Bush is no longer in office. Was I posting here when he was in office? NO. Did I agree with him? NO. But, her is NOT running the country now, and hasn't for 5 years. Obama remains in campaign mode. That, too, is in the past.

And Rugby Reader, I have berated you before for using the word 'retard'. At least try show a bit of adulthood and refrain from such language.

What do you have to say about the 304 that were killed during President Clinton's administration? There were not calls for investigations relating to the attacks then either.

The difference is President Obama and his administration repeatedly said the attacks were spontaneous because of the video and not a planned terrorist attack. Whereas under President Clinton & President Bush the attacks were called terrorist attacks. The investigation was call by both Republicans and Democrats on the House and Senate intelligence committees.

Your post proves my point. You believe that I blindly supported Bush. That is a false assumption.

where are the reports to back up this theory? After looking at many sources, none were found to state that the identities of the suspects are known. I doubt if the MDN is privy to CIA classified information. You fellas are too funny!
