This past Sunday I wrote: According to a December 2011 Pew Foundation study, while 60 percent of Americans view socialism negatively, a plurality of Americans ages 18 to 29 (49 percent to 43 percent) and a majority of African-Americans (55 percent...
LBN: I believe the reason the young don't know any better because capitalism and the free markets are not taught in schools anymore. Instead they teach socialism,social justice,global warming and redistribution of wealth or collectivism. The pilgrims learned this was a failed way to individual prosperity,now Greece, France, Spain and others are learning this...or suffering from this mentality but unwilling to learn from their mistakes. Now the US wants to follow the same failed policies at the expense of hard working Americans. Yet they have the nerve they are going to help the poor and middle class, who suffer more, especially in DEM controlled cities and states, like CA and Detroit.
This is why we must not only take back the message in the media from the liberal news, but take back the message in our schools and universities which have become breeding grounds for liberalism/socialism and communism.
U.S. Marine Corps Gets Chickified I’ve written about the many successful attempts to feminize the U.S. Armed Forces and other attempts that haven’t been successful . . . yet. These includes the push to allow women to become Navy SEALs and to force U.S. Army men to wear fake breasts and wombs to “identify with” women in the military. And, now, there is the case of the women who tried to become Marine infantrymen but dropped out because they failed. The U.S. Marine Corps is considering lowered, “gender neutral standards” so women can pass. That’s how it always works, or rather, doesn’t work, but is put into place anyway. In the long term, this is as bad as shrinking the military because it means that the non-shrunk portion won’t pass muster under the normal standards.
The Marine Corps’ effort to evaluate whether more combat jobs should open to women marked another milestone last week when the second of two female volunteers washed out of infantry officer training.
A second lieutenant, she was dropped from the program Friday after failing to complete required training due to unspecified medical reasons, a Marine official told Marine Corps Times. It’s unclear whether she was injured or if she became ill.
“Medical reasons”? Is that what they are calling failure, these days. On the other hand, uterus is, indeed, a medical term. Nice excuse, though.
The other volunteer, also a second lieutenant, dropped out Sept. 28 after she was unable to complete the program’s introductory combat endurance test. Nearly 30 men also washed out on the first day.
Known as the Infantry Officers Course, the demanding 13-week program is based at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va. The current class, which began with 109 students, is the first to have included women. On average, about 25 percent of the men who enroll in IOC fail to complete it and voluntarily withdraw.
The Corps sought female volunteers for the course as part of a broader research effort to assess how female Marines might perform in assignments whose primary mission is direct ground combat — jobs they are prohibited from filling now. Just the two women stepped forward. Marine officials have declined to identify them, citing a desire to protect their privacy.
And a desire to protect these failures and the obvious conclusion here, which is that women cannot cut it in these jobs and their presence as infantrymen would make America weak at war. But don’t worry, not to be confused by the facts–the sheer facts of failure and lack of competence–the Marines will try again to foist feminism on the infantry.
Between pushing gays in the military and women who don't meet the physical demands and standards to pass infantry training, Obama is turning our military into a joke. In addition, he is shrinking the size of our military while forcing several Generals and Commanders to resign recently. I suppose his plan is to replace those who he believes aren't loyal to him with those who are loyal to him in fear of having the military turn against him, as he continues towards his tyrannical government and plans to ban guns and bypass Congress on several issues.
Today, President Obama announced at yet another one of his campaign events/photo ops at the White House that he would “go anywhere and I’ll do whatever it takes to get this done. It’s too important for Washington to screw this up.
Yep, Obama doesn't believe in compromise...it's his way or the highway...he's full of BS! Increasing taxes on the rich will only cover about 8.5 days of debt under Obama's current spending levels.
Alongside his zealous pursuit of Obama administration flubs as head of the House Oversight Committee, Congressman Darrell Issa of California has historically been on the forefront of technological issues within the Republican party.
He's been a great advocate for keeping the internet open&free so hopefully he will continue to do so as the watchdog of the house oversight committee. He should be on top of Obama on Benghazi too, but I guess after Fast&Furious and the corruption complaint against Holder mounting to nothing he is laying low??
While official Washington is focused on potential tax hikes and automatic spending cuts, another fiscal crisis looms on the horizon.
The automatic spending cuts are wreckless and don't allow for cuts where cuts are needed....entitlement reform is the greatest debt creator and is growing daily, especially with Obamacare coming into play.
The DEMs don't want to compromise on anything, they consider negotiations their way or the highway. In the meantime, the DEMs will blame Republicans if the Bush Tax cuts aren't continued on everyone, except the rich. However, DEMs need to face reality that if the rich are taxed more jobs will be lost and more rich will leave the country, especially small businesses. Or they will close down!
This week, the Senate will be examining a set of proposals which could have profound implications for the future of privacy.
While it sounds like it is doing something to protect privacy, the title is misleading...it actually gives the govt more access to your personal information from emails older than six months to web browsing history on all electronic devices.
As they say...those willing to give up privacy&individual freedoms for security will be left with neither.

UN general assembly recognises Palestinian state 138-9 with 41 abstaining.(AlGuardian). UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon speaks in favor of the resolution. "I believe that Palestinians have the right to its own state. I believe that Israel has the right to peace and security," he says. Ban says the resolution should be taken as an opportunity to restart the peace process. "We must give new impetus to our collective efforts" toward a two-state solution, he says.
Non-member observer state status could open the way for possible war crimes charges against the Jewish state at the International Criminal Court. Prosor took to the offensive, saying the Palestinians had turned their backs on peace by trying to unilaterally claim statehood.He said the resolution failed to recognize the Israeli state. He said Israeli overtures of peace have been met with Palestinian terrorism. Canada's done, and will vote against the resolution.Hooray for Canada.
PA: UN vote turns terrorists into freedom fighters and disputed land into occupied land
1- Changing the status of land under Israeli administration since 1967 to "occupied territory" PA Foreign Minister Riad Al-Maliki: "If Palestine receives status of a non-member state in the General Assembly, there will be positive effects on all levels in the future... Israel will no longer be able to define the occupied territories as disputed lands. They will become lands of a separate, occupied state." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 24, 2012]

Senators threaten to cut Palestinian aid in retaliation for U.N. action.
Senators threaten to cut Palestinian aid in retaliation for U.N. action.(WT).A bipartisan group of senators said Thursday they’ll push for a vote in Congress to kick the Palestinian Liberation Organization out of its Washington offices and threaten to withhold U.S. financial assistance if the Palestinians seek to use enhanced U.N. status against Israel. The U.N. General Assembly was expected to vote later Thursday to recognize Palestine as a “non-member observer state,” which Israel and its supporters fear would give Palestinians a chance to use the International Criminal Court against Israel. “This is a provocative, unhealthy step that will undermine the peace process,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican. He is sponsoring an amendment along with Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, to administer what amounts to a legislative spanking for the Palestinians.
We rarely heard about the fiscal cliff and the debt crisis before the election because Obama's propaganda media machine kept it out of the spotlight and instead covered it up and focused on attacking Romney for how much money he makes, pays in taxes and other stupid BS.
They never wanted to talk about the economy, the fiscal cliff coming up and the inevitble failure of Obama's economic policies. Then Benghazi came up and as soon as Romney pointed fingers at Obama or the terorrists he was attacked for making the deaths of four Americans political. When in reality he had a right to condemn the terrorist attacks that left four Americans dead.
Obama's economic and foreign policies have been a complete failure and now the DEMs are pushing tax increases on the rich to solve their spending habits. Increasing taxes isn't going to stop the spending spree they are on. They also want to increase the debt ceiling again, this is essentially giving them an unlimited credit card limit. How much longer will we be able to keep this up....China isn't going to be able to afford to keep loaning to us soon. There economy isn't exactly doing as great as it could, but they are doing better than us. In the meantime, we are heading over a cliff on the same path as Greece, Spain, and France. CA is the first state that is ready to fall off...how soon before more states, especially the DEM controlled states going to fall into bankruptcy like so many cities in CA are??
Obama is doing nothing to fix the economy. Instead he wants to increase spending, raise taxes on the rich and continue on an unsustainable path. Once Obamacare kicks in completely we can expect more employers to reduce work hours or layoff employees. Larger corporations will also be hit with the highest tax rate of all other countries. This will create a greater outsourcing of jobs, which Obama claims he doesn't support. But, under Obama companies like GE have already created more jobs overseas and in China than in the US.
Washington, Feb 16 - Tomorrow, February 17, 2012, will be exactly 3 years since President Obama signed his infamous stimulus package into law. It was a plan designed to create jobs by growing the size of government, and its record has not been good.
President Obama said Wednesday he hoped to reach a deal on the "fiscal cliff" before Christmas but insisted that Congress move now to prevent a middle-class tax increase in January.
You know they are going to cram something down our throats like they did with Obamacare on Christmas Eve. They will make backroom deals like they did then and then leave thinking they did what we the people wanted. In the end middle class Americans, small business will lose out as taxes go up for the job creators.

"I am optimistic that we can continue to work together to avert this crisis sooner rather than later," the Ohio Republican told reporters. "We (Republicans) put revenue on the table as long as it is accompanied by serious spending cuts to avert this crisis."
The $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts will start going into effect early next year if the Obama administration and lawmakers cannot agree on how to change the law. Top policymakers say these austerity measures could topple the U.S. economy back into a recession.
The GOP better stay firm and spending cuts better not include the military/defense...they need to start with entitlements, but of course DEMs will never give in to this...they keep voters by keeping them on entitlements.
