...Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed...
Patrick Henry (1736-1799) US Founding Father
Add in paying for belly dancers, mismanagement, sex offenders, embezzlement, employee bonuses, cost-of-living increases and severance awards and children damaged for life, to name a few, and you have a perfect example of government agencies too big, too corrupt and too stupid to do any job right.
Read the whole article. If ObamaCare becomes a reality maybe doctors and you may suffer, but some administrator will probably have a "million dollar mansion in Florida, with a Lamborghini and BMW parked out front."
UPDATE: Link was missing, but now fixed thanks to a heads up from Zilla. You can read her here and here.
But throughout the hourlong speech, he never addressed the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedy—gun control—and what lawmakers would, or should, do to reform American firearm-access laws.
No, gun control is not the core issue. If they wanted to speak about a nut that was allowed to roam free even though authorities knew him to be dangerous as the core issue then they'd have a point. But nuts being confined doesn't fit the meme.
That was intentional, according to the White House. An administration official says Obama didn’t mention guns in his speech because of the omnipresent controversy surrounding the Second Amendment and gun control. Tuesday’s speech was designed to be more about the economy and how, as Obama repeated nine times, the U.S. could “win the future.”
But in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort in which it will urge Congress to strengthen current laws, which now allow some mentally unstable people, such as alleged Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, to obtain certain assault weapons, in some cases without even a background check.
Poor Rep. Giffords, a second amendment supporter, will once again be used by the Obama administration to further another goal. They want Obama's economic policy and his abysmal SOTU address off the front pages so they'll use Giffords to that end plus they can use the media to paint those opposing such gun control efforts as heartless and evil. Double win!
If they can chip away at the 2nd amendment, well, that's a bonus.
Classy bimbette Meghan 'Who the hell is Sarah Palin?' McCain says that Bachman is a poor man's Palin and if she thinks Palin is trailer trash, as she has implied, then what must she really think of Bachman?
Meghan states that Palin brought "drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty" to her father's presidential campaign. Maybe the thought of one day getting all that beer money has clouded her thinking because Palin also brought a lot more votes to the ticket. Maybe she's just projecting about her Xanax problem. Talk about bringing stress to a campaign.
Maybe Meghan is stuck in the first act of Xanadu. Meg, keep dreaming of someday.
He was writing to say that there are other terrorist group and that House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) should not focus on just Muslims. While there are obviously dangerous groups such as Lunatic Lutherans planning death to America I think their numbers and organization might not be up to par with Muslim jihadists though, if lutefisk sales start rising like the cost of oil, then we may have a problem, but I don't think King is focusing on just Muslims. He is focusing on them because they have been behind murder and death all over the world, but I'm thinking that there is general knowledge of other terrorists.
I don't know much about Bennie, but it appears that only MLK or Malcom X could beat him so his district is pretty safe for him. So safe he can play stupid and dangerous political games with the security of the United States of America.
I'd say that Bennie Thompson is the Olbermann of the week.
