From the Rightby Ed Farnan
- 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
In yet another step down the one way chute of nanny statism, a "courageous progressive lawmaker," Rep. Rosa L. DeLauro from Connecticut, has boldly found yet another unique way to spend other peoples money. It seems liberalism's never ending quest of avoiding responsibility for ones responsibilities, has now brought us to the brink of having a federal diaper law. The proposed law will provide disposable diapers and accessories to "needy families."
This odoriferous law, is a reflection of the mentality portrayed in television programs like "16 and pregnant," where it is actually socially acceptable and a "choice" to get pregnant out of wedlock.
The disabled ship drifted helplessly for weeks in the Atlantic. The storm that shattered their mast, had pushed them far out of normal sailing routes near South America. They had run out of food, water and now hope was almost gone. But like so often in the history of mankind, when it seems the last card has played and the die is cast, a sail appeared on the horizon. As it drew closer, the crew, delirious with thirst, stood on the rails waving their arms, begging the other ship for water. The captain of the other ship yelled back: "Lower down your buckets!" Confused, the crew didn't understand, until the Captain explained they were off the coast of Brazil and the mighty Amazon River pours its waters more than 100 miles out into the ocean....They had been surrounded by fresh water for the last two weeks and didn't know it.
America finds itself in a similar situation, except ours is a thirst for energy and we, the crew members, are being denied the opportunity to let our buckets down. But this thirst is not by accident or ignorance, it is planned, willful and deliberate. In this case our Captain has sailed us on to the shoals of foreign energy dependence when in reality we have all of the energy we need right here in North America.
The "troubles" in Ireland were hallmarked by identities of combatants cloaked in ski masks. Taking a page out of this book, it seems ski masks are now the latest fashion trend in hot hot Mexico, a country not known for it's ski resorts
In Mexico, just like during the troubles in Ireland, ski masks are worn by combatants to hide their identities. But in Mexico, law enforcers also wear ski masks to hide their identities, because retribution and payback are the name of the game. Innocents are not out of bounds and extended families are now considered targets of those involved in this narco terrorist war.
In Ireland where the violence was real and deadly, it was mostly in the name of a cause and to make a point for a political goal. Many had died for that goal in the name of freedom. The endgame was to gain power by those who were left out of the power structure. The violence brought to the table players that had previously refused to negotiate and a peace ensued.
The leader of the US Senate said our private sector is doing fine, but it's the public sector that needs help. I suppose if your sealed living environment is Washington DC then this might make perfect sense to you.
Private sector Lobbyists are fully employed at our nations capital showering all of our politicians with attention.....and other things. I'll bet it would seem there are so many lobbyists you could fill the Potomac with them and walk across without getting your feet wet. Not a bad idea actually.
Of course the economic ring around Washington DC area is experiencing quite a rosy economy with all of the shiny new government rules and regulations for the rest of us to live under. It is a full time job for hundreds of thousands of the public sector to central plan our great country and get it pointed in the right direction....Hey watch out for that cliff!
Many also say this memorial is a symbol of Americas acknowledgement and atonement for the many years we enslaved people simply because their skin color was different than ours. But America was too great a country to let the slavery injustice last. The underlying decency of the American spirit rose up and revolted against this cruel, inhumane practice and at great cost to our country, we had a civil war over it. Over half a million Americans died in this war.
It seems that in the course of history, great human beings appear to lead us through the tumultuous times of change. Some call it coincidence, others call it divine intervention
No matter how you spin it, "Occupy Wall Street" is not comparable to a Tea party grass roots gathering. I have been listening lately to those on the left who say it is their version of the Tea Party, but as many see it ,there is no comparison.
The Tea Party has a clear unified message: Lower taxes and smaller government. It's not complicated and hard to figure out, you can ask almost any participant and you will get that same general answer.
When there is a Tea Party event, people gather at a place that does not interfere with the ongoing commerce and business of a city it is being held in. There are never any arrests and people are usually very respectful. At the end of the day they, clean up any trash that may have accumulated, return to their homes, take a shower and get on with their normal lives. Tea Party members made their voices heard at the voting booths by turning the elections on their head last November.
Besides the bottomless pit of taxpayers money being burned to create green energy and the paltry amount of green energy jobs they are creating, other "green facts" are surfacing. One of the troublesome facts is that many promised jobs seem to be going to China who is busy manufacturing our green energy products.
In an ironic twist with the cold hard face of reality, coal energy is being used to make green energy products. In the real world of business where price is the determining factor in a competitive marketplace Seems China is building solar panels for half the price of what Solyndra was building theirs for, even with a half a billion boost from the US taxpayer.
When Kimberly Guilfoyle first started getting media attention, she was an assistant District Attorney in San Francisco. She was the prosecutor in a sensational San Francisco case involving the mauling death of a woman by two Giant Mastiff dogs. The dogs were owned by people closely associated with prison gang activity and the dogs had been trained and encouraged to be aggressive. This proved to be a hugely dangerous combination, as they literally tore the helpless woman to pieces. Ms. Guilfoyle did a masterful job at prosecuting this case and won convictions for 2nd degree murder against them.
Around that time she was married to the very liberal Mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsome and became well known in the political circles of the area. In the very liberal political climate of San Francisco, it was assumed she must be a liberally leaning person herself, in the hometown of so many liberal luminaries. So it was a surprise to many when she later started appearing on television as a commentator and it became apparent that whatever her husbands political affiliations were, she didn't seem to share them.
As an aside I don't know how she could do that, but I suppose love is blind....for awhile. Nevertheless the marriage didn't last but a few years and Kimberly moved on. Gavin, moved on as well, from mayor of San Francisco into the Lieutenant Governors office, where he is grooming himself for his next step up the political ladder.
According to reports, as many as 20,000 sophisticated shoulder launched anti aircraft missiles have fallen into Al Quaeda & their allies hands. These missiles are easy to use, portable, weigh approx. 55 lbs., have a range of two miles and have the ability to bring down a commercial airliner. They are heat seeking and home in on the exhaust of jet engines. Just firing them in the general vicinity of a slow moving, fully loaded aircraft on climb out, will result in an easy kill.
These same type missiles are what the US gave to fighters in Afghanistan when the Soviet army occupied that country. The use of those missiles lead to the utter defeat of the Soviet army by unsophisticated Afghan fighters who shot thousands of soviet aircraft out of the sky.
Just how the terrorist organizations got their hands on these deadly weapons, is coming to light and a disturbing picture is starting to emerge. Seems that with the collapse of the Gaddafi Libyan regime, a power gap was created which left many of Libyan arms depots, usually under heavy security, unguarded. This gap in security allowed the wholesale removal of hi-tech sophisticated weapons by any groups that wanted access. Al Quaeda & other terrorist organizations have their tentacles in the struggle going on in Libya.
Very interesting picture from space pretty much summed up what government master planning will get you if left unchecked. As the satellite traveled over Asia the images starkly point this out through the darkness of night. Sweeping over Korea and China, it was easy to see where the demarcation of private enterprise started and ended. South Korea was brilliantly lit up like a Christmas tree, a bustling rich country, but at the border with North Korea the landscape changed to almost pitch black. As the satellite image crossed into China there was a bit more light as the beginnings of capitalism and entrepreneurship brings that country forward.
America is the great melting pot. Americas great strength has always rested in its diversity of ideas and entrepreneurial spirit. Those ideas were never a legal mandate by the government, but a natural evolution of winners and losers in the field of ideas and inventions.
If you come up with a better way to build a mousetrap you are rewarded greatly in our capitalistic system. If your mousetrap only catches the families pets...you are punished economically, or worse, American animal rights groups will picket your home
