Fox News contributor Allen West questioned the "loyalties" of decorated veteran and Illinois Rep. Tammy Duckworth for serving with her fellow Democrats on the Benghazi select committee.

West attacked the recently announced Democratic members of the recently formed committee for dismissing the importance of Benghazi during an appearance on the May 21 broadcast of The Janet Mefferd Show.

West remarked of Duckworth: "I just don't know where her loyalties lie. You know, for her to have been a veteran, a wounded warrior for the United States Army, she should know that this is not the right thing. And hopefully, you know, she will remember the oath of office that she took as an Army officer and not the allegiance I guess she believes she has to the liberal progressives of the Democrat Party."

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, October 13, 12:18 AM

Ok, they say keep your friends close and your enemies closer. So  what is ALEC to the Untied States?  The Arabs call ISIS "DASH".  It is an insult meaning something like "Bully". In the USA we have a bully called ALEC. They fight to see the rich and corporations have more than their share of the wealth and power of the entire nation. They are wanting to own  our public education for one major thing they want to gain wealth and power from. 


What does it mean keep your enemies  closer then your friends?

Enemies are people that could do you emotional, physical or any kind of harm, so you want to keep a real close eye on them to make sure they don't. It's "watching your back" There is the fact that the better you know your enemy, the better you can defend yourself against him. Then there is the possibility that the better you understand him and his motivations, the better the chance of resolving the conflict happily for both sides. Then there is the possibility as expressed by R.A. Dickson who said "Love your enemies in case your friends turn out to be a bunch of bastards."

The Incredible Hoax of Reaganomics- Trickle-Down 2/4 | Nomadic Politics

The Incredible Hoax of Reaganomics- Trickle-Down 2/4 | Nomadic Politics | Liberal Political thoughts | Scoop.it

William Jennings Bryan is one of those people who was quite popular in his time but has now been largely consigned to unread records. However, not unlike his contemporary, Teddy Roosevelt, Bryan’s words and thoughts, once considered fixed to a particular time and particular circumstance of American history, seem to be suddenly just as apt in our own times. He said over a hundred years ago:

 

There are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that if you just legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, that their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Democratic idea has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous, their prosperity will find its way up and through every class that rests upon it.

 

Though supply-side was sold the American public as some new-fangled economic theory, it was hardly revolutionary. Only the names were revised but the same bill of goods was sold to a gullible public by Ronald Reagan.

Mitt Romney and the Eye of the Needle | Nomadic Politics

Mitt Romney and the Eye of the Needle | Nomadic Politics | Liberal Political thoughts | Scoop.it

During the Republican debate last year, Romney was asked whether he believed in the Bible as the Word of God. He hesitated and finally said he did. 

As a man who claims to be Christian- or as close as any Mormon can get to Christianity- he must know how Jesus felt about great wealth. Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25 and Matthew 19:24 all have Jesus saying the same thing:


It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

 

Jesus had a lot more to say to the 1% and none of it is very encouraging.
