- Dispelling liberal myths, the Tea Party is not racist and the right is not the realm of homophobes and misogynists
- Sean Hannity shows generosity, pays Obamacare worker fired for talking to him
- A country that does not control its borders….Is no longer a country
- Republicans can say 'we told you so' as Obamacare is inflicted on America
- The House Republicans are the adults in the room when it comes to debt talks
Ireland has shown the way that revolutions, within a framework of a constitution can be started at the ballot box, rather than with a bullet box.
The good citizens of Ireland have tried to bring a revolution to their country within their political system. Irish voters made a fundamental change to their leadership by the electoral kicking to the curb of Fianna Fail. This is the established and well entrenched political party, who the people of Ireland blame for the dismal financial situation among other failings in their country.
Not to alarm my PETA friends out here in the west, this is theoretical only... The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as an example of humanity's inability to react to significant changes that occur gradually.
Slowly and inexorably we are being prodded down the cattle chute of soft tyranny where the government, at the behest of the president and his unelected czars, can selectively decide which laws it will obey and which laws it will ignore.
Yesterdays Obama and Holder think the law passed by congress and signed by President Clinton in 1996 is unconstitutional so they will not defend it?
"For compromise in Wisconsin, 3 GOP Senators needed"
What the headline actually should read is: The 14 Democrat Senators who fled the state in order to circumvent the law, need to return and do their job, they have paralyzed the legislative process. There is no need for GOP lawmakers to compromise. They overwhelmingly won the election and are trying to carry out the mandate the voters of Wisconsin gave them. Elections have consequences, as our President has reminded us time and again.
The television screen showed angry shouting demonstrators filling the streets of the city. At first I thought I was looking at Athens, Paris or Madrid, where angry civil workers fill the streets when their socialist governments suggest the retirement age be increased from 53 to 55. Oh the wailing and gnashing of teeth! The burning of cars! The breaking of glass! The stamping of feet!
Then I realized the streets filled with demonstrators were American and it was happening right here in the USA, the heartland of the country, Madison Wisconsin.
Where's the civility pledged so eloquently by the President at the Tucson gathering? How quickly things change as shouting protesters carry signs depicting the Governor of Wisconsin as Hitler. There have been arrests for violence and the government has been stopped from doing its business because of the demonstrators and also because the Democrat senators ran out of the state so a quorum couldn't be achieved.
February is the shortest month of the year with only 28 days. Yet it is a month packed with importance that no other month can boast. It is the birth month of Americas three greatest Presidents and another President whose potential greatness was nipped in the bud after only 34 days in office.
It is a month who sets aside a special day for lovers when Valentines days is recognized.
The entire month is celebrated as Black History Month.
