I haven’t abandoned the Family, LOTS of personal things that are almost sorted out after almost a year.

Thanks to JJ and all of those who haven’t given up.

Thanks as always,

  1. We are still with you, Larry. We all understand at times we need to take care of personal responsibilities. We look forward to 2014’s election and all the lies and disinformation to come. Merry Christmas to the family and hope you all find hope and success with dreams fulfilled in the New Year!

  2. I’m still with you too, Larry. Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New year to the entire NLTZ family.

  3. Michele from NY

    Thank you Larry. Merry Christmas to you. Looking forward to your wit in 2014.

  4. we’re still here…
    Merry Christmas to all…
    That’s right, I said “Christmas” !!
    Not “Happy Holidays”, or any other left-wing liberal nutjob anti-Christmas BS.
    CHRISTMAS. Period.
    (oh the things I would like to shove into a liberal’s stockings…”




  6. Merry Christmas and a very Happy, Healthy new year. Still here and await an article from you.

  7. Thank you, Larry, and a very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones also. And of course a Merry Christmas to all of the family here at NLTZ. May God’s blessings be upon each and every one of you.

    I feel somewhat ashamed that I haven’t contributed as much as I used to but I, like Larry, have had to deal with personal issues that have taken precedence.

    Your right! Jesus Christ is the cause of Christmas and the reason for the season!!!!!

  8. Alabama Redneck

    Larry, May God Bless you and the entire NLTZ family with a Merry Christmas and a propersous New Year.

    I have not given up on the causes for which you write and I apologize for being neglectful and not commenting. I know you had family problems and I am thankful that they are close to being resolved. God always answers prayer and His timing is always perfect even if we don’t realize it at the time.

    I, too, have had a myriad of family problems and after almost losing my wife this past year, God, in His infinite wisdom decided that she stay with me for awhile longer. Many, many prayers have been answered and now it is my responsibility to thank our God Jehova, the Lord of Hosts and everyone that prayed with me. I have been very blessed these past two years and I sincerely pray for all our NLTZ family and especially for you, Larry.

    God Bless us, Every one.

  9. Merry Christmas Larry!!!!! God Bless you and your family.

  10. I wish Larry and all the family a Merry Christmas and healthy New Year.

  11. A merry Christmas to you, yours, and entire NFT family. May the next year elevate you to new heights and spread your words to millions.

  12. Alabama Redneck,

    Special prayers to you during your time of loss.

    Thanks to everyone for the years of support.


  13. beyond disgusted

    Merry Christmas to you Larry, your family and our noleftturnz family. Hopefully next year will be interesting in a positive way. Happy New Year!

  14. Christmas is for Christ
    no matter what they say,
    The very special reason
    for this one holy day.
    We celebrate the moment
    the Son of God first came,
    that’s why the day is holy
    and Christ is in its’ name.
    But that is just the beginning,
    for each new year can start
    when every day is Christmas
    if Christ is in your heart.
    So celebrate the season
    of peace, love, and joy,
    remembering the real reason
    is still this little baby boy.

  15. Had been wondering about you. Happy New Year too.

  16. Larry,

    Good to hear from you. Hope all works out as you wish, and that you’ll be “back” real soon !


    As usuall, you’ve posted another ‘good one’. Due to the OWEbaama Pentagon, some legislators, and public schools, I wonder how long it will be before Christ and Christmas become a distant memory.

  17. DQ # 134 . . . Actually, I hope that it’s NOT a DQ . But, why do so many of the NLTZ family members ‘wait’ for Larry to post something , and then respond ? I would suspect that during one of Larry’s extended absences, each of us would have at least ONE comment to render, especially with all of the nonsense that is coming out of DC ! Hell, doesn’t the OWEbaamascare disaster deserve at least ONE comment ?

    This is not a diatribe, I’m sincerely just curious as to the lack of activity . 🙂

  18. Richard and JJ, A comment. I have been reading a lot. All communist dictators removed all religions from their countries. The citizents were not/are not allowed to worship a higher being them them. In Germany, where so many of our Christmas Carols had their birth were not allowed once Hitler took power. They were only allowed to celebrate Solstice and were not allowed to sing their beloved songs. All sounds familiar doesn’t it? We notice every Christmas season the erosion of our own celebrations. Start in the schools and spread out from there and it will grow and grow. I think communism is creeping into our lifes and people are going about their business and not noticing.
    The Obamas did not even go to church on Christmas. No example there.

  19. Merry Christmas and God’s blessings to Larry and all of the NLTZ family. It was good to hear from you Larry. Looking forward to more thoughts and ideas as another election season rolls around.

  20. Monica,

    Sad, but true ! Owebaama claims that he doesn’t go to church in DC, so as not to disrupt the service. However , why would he not go in his ‘home ‘ state ?

  21. DQ #135 . . . The OWEbaama adm. claims that 2.1 million have enrolled in OWEbaamascare via the federal and state exchanges. But , they also admitted that over 3 million LOST their insurance. How can they continue to claim that this disastrous OWEbaamascare is a success ? ?

  22. DQ #136 . . . In spite of all the evidence to the contrary , the NY Times claims that the ” video” was partially responsible for the Benghazi attack. Is this a desperate attempt to sell newspapers ? ?

  23. DQ #137 . . . With the number of bomb blasts in Russia, will any countries refrain from participating in the Winter Olympics ? ?

  24. Alabama Redneck

    Jey JJ:

    I think we all realize that the latest NYT story is just a fugal attempt to whitewash (cover) for Shrillary’s failure as SofS and clear the way for her coronation in 2016.

  25. Alabama Redneck

    Ooops: Should be Hey JJ, My bad.

  26. Alabama Redneck,

    No problem. Oftentimes my keyboard runs amuck . 🙂

    Hillary will need more than the NYT, since the slaying of a US ambassador MUST be thoroughly investigated. Would like to see some Dems attempt to generate a list of Hillary’s ‘accomplishments’ as SofS !

  27. DQ #138 . . . According to the LA Times, the manger scene on the lawn of the Claremont United Methodist Church did not feature the baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Instead, it depicted Trayvon Martin in a hoodie slumped over with a pool of blood at his feet ! ! !

    Now, I don’t care what your religious preference might be, but isn’t this a despicable act that should offend almost everyone, especially Christians ? ?

  28. Here’s a little “goodie ” reminder – if you are a Veteran, or have a family member of friend .that is a Vet , there are many companies that give discounts or other types of breaks to those of us who have served.

    Thanks and God Bless all of these companies that appreciate us !

  29. DQ #139 . . . According to the just released Gallop poll, OWEbaama and Hillary are the MOST ADMIRED male and female . Did Gallop speak to anyone other than Liberals ? ?

  30. DQ # 140 . . . In a strange, or somewhat perverted manner, OWEbaamascare may have a minor redeeming quality in that the young adults that fell for his lies, are now opposed to him at a 2 : 1 ratio. This is due to the fact that they are forced to buy insurance, pay penalties, or pay higher premiums.

    How will this same group feel about Hillary in 2 years ? ?

  31. I’d like to wish everyone a HAPPY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR

  32. DQ #141 . . . Ultra Liberal Bill de Blasio was sworn in as mayor of NYC by Billy Bob . Does a past POTUS have the legal authority to perform this function ? And is it just another action to aid Hillary’s path to the WH ? ?

  33. DQ #142 . . . There are almost 11 million persons on disability income ( 6,000 were just added in Dec. ) – how soon will it reach the breaking point ? ?

  34. DQ #143 . . . OWEbaama hates the evil ‘rich’ . The Fed is pumping $85 billion each month into the stock market , and the market is responding accordingly. However, the prime beneficiaries include, to a large degree – the ‘rich’ ! Is this just more hypocrisy from the Liar in Chief ? ?

  35. DQ #144 . . . Even Michael Moore, one of OWEbaama’s ‘biggest’ ( in more ways than one ) supporters , now says that OWEbaamascare is “awful” . Is this an omen that OWEbaama’s disaster is falling apart ?

  36. In case you missed: A political cartoon shows the global warming scientists ice bound with a couple of penguins around saying “Maybe you out to check your math.” This is the first comment under the cartoon –
    Robert Rittmann · Top Commenter

    True-believing eco-wacko Warmalarmicist Chicken Little zealots, (some call them Watermelons cause they’re pink in the middle and green on the outside), worshipping at the Church of Global Warming ad the Almighty Dollar stuck in the ice?!! Who’da thunk?!!

    It’s called the Gore effect, named after their high priest. Don’t worry, cheap carbon indulgences are on sale.

    If they were meat-eaters, I’d suggest they eat the fat ones first.

    I like them stewed in their own juices, dripping with rich irony, seasoned with generous hypocrisy, basted with truth and slow-smoked in their own self-righteousness. Yum-yum.

    What’s your favorite recipe?

  37. I wonder how many of these global warming zealots were also warning us about a coming ice age less than 20 yrs. ago !

  38. DQ #145 . . . With the additional banning of the 40w and 60w incandescent bulbs, we’ll have to switch to the more expensive CFL and /or LED and/or halogen bulbs. Each of these has some aspect that we find less desireable . Since light bulbs are no longer made here, how many total jobs were lost by these changes ? ?

  39. You are doing great, JJ.; Keep our grey matter stretching and wondering. I thought one man’s initiation Owevammaaaascare tells it like it WOW!


    I’m a 54 year old consulting engineer and make between $60,000 and $125,000 per year, depending on how hard I work and whether or not there are work projects out there for me.

    My girlfriend is 61 and makes about $18,000 per year, working as a part-time mail clerk.

    For me, making $60,000 a year, under Obama Care, the cheapest, lowest grade policy I can buy, which also happens to impose a $5,000 deductible, costs $482 per month.

    For my girlfriend, the same exact policy, same deductible, costs $1 per month. That’s right, $1 per month. I’m not making this up.

    Don’t believe me? Just go to , the Obama Care website for California and enter the parameters I’ve mentioned above and see for yourself. By the way, my zip code is 93940. You’ll need to enter that.

    So OK, clearly Obama Care is a scheme that involves putting the cost burden of healthcare onto the middle and upper-income wage earners. But there’s a lot more to it. Stick with me.

    And before I make my next points, I’d like you to think about something:

    I live in Monterey County, in Central California. We have a large land mass but just 426,000 residents – about the population of Colorado Springs or the city of Omaha.

    But we do have a large Hispanic population, including a large number of illegal aliens, and to serve this group we have Natividad Medical Center, a massive, Federally subsidized county medical complex that takes up an area about one-third the size of the Chrysler Corporation automobile assembly plant in Belvedere, Illinois (see Google Earth View). Natividad has state-of-the-art operating rooms, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fully equipped, 24 hour emergency room, and much more. If you have no insurance, if you’ve been in a drive-by shooting or have overdosed on crack cocaine, this is where you go. And it’s essentially free, because almost everyone who ends up in the ER is uninsured.

    Last year, 2,735 babies were born at Natividad. 32% of these were born to out-of-wedlock teenage mothers, 93% of which were Hispanic. Less than 20% could demonstrate proof of citizenship, and 71% listed their native language as Spanish. Of these 876 births, only 40 were covered under [any kind of] private health insurance. The taxpayers paid for the other 836. And in case you were wondering about the entire population – all 2,735 births – less than 24% involved insured coverage or even partial payment on behalf of the patient to the hospital in exchange for services. Keep this in mind as we move forward.

    Now consider this:

    If I want to upgrade my policy to a low-deductible premium policy, such as what I had with my last employer, my cost is $886 per month. But my girlfriend can upgrade her policy to the very same level, for just $4 per month. That’s right, $4 per month. $48 per year for a zero-deductible, premium healthcare policy – the kind of thing you get when you work at IBM (except of course, IBM employees pay an average of $170 per month out of pocket for their coverage).

    I mean, it’s bad enough that I will be forced to subsidize the ObamaCare scheme in the first place. But even if I agreed with the basic scheme, which of course I do not, I would never agree to subsidize premium policies. If I have to pay $482 a month for a budget policy, I sure as hell do not want the guy I’m subsidizing to get a better policy, for less that 1% of what I have to fork out each month for a low-end policy.

    Why must I pay $482 per month for something the other guy gets for a dollar? And why should the other guy get to buy an $886 policy for $4 a month? Think about this: I have to pay $10,632 a year for the same thing that the other guy can get for $48. $10,000 of net income is 60 days of full time work as an engineer. $48 is something I could could pay for collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles, one day a month.

    Are you with me on this? Are you starting to get an idea what ObamaCare is really about?

    ObamaCare is not about dealing with inequities in the healthcare system. That’s just the cover story. The real story is that it is a massive, political power grab. Do you think anyone who can insure himself with a premium policy for $4 a month will vote for anyone but the political party that provides him such a deal? ObamaCare is about enabling, subsidizing, and expanding the Left’s political power base, at taxpayer expense. Why would I vote for anyone but a Democrat if I can have babies for $4 a month? For that matter, why would I go to college or strive for a better job or income if it means I have to pay real money for healthcare coverage? Heck, why study engineering when I can be a schlub for $20K per year and buy a new F-150 with all the money I’m saving?

    And think about those $4-a-month babies – think in terms of propagation models. Think of just how many babies will be born to irresponsible, under-educated mothers. Will we get a new crop of brain surgeons and particle physicists from the dollar baby club, or will we need more cops, criminal courts and prisons? One thing you can be certain of: At $4 a month, they’ll multiply, and multiply, and multiply. And not one of them will vote Republican.

    Obama Care: It’s all about political power.

  40. Richard,

    Thanks for that . OWEbaamascare is so ” comprehensive’ , in that the geniass authors made NO provisions for a birth, death, marriage, or divorce ! Nonetheless, OWEbaama and Sebelius continue to praise this disaster .

  41. DQ #146 . . . OWEbaama wants to ‘create’ more jobs, or truth be told – more ” federal paycheck receivers ” , by creating a Federal Tech Agency to handle such things as OWEbaamascare and . Is it safe to say that the things that OWEbaama has ‘created’ include excessive debt, higher ‘real’ unemployment, more part-time jobs, more uninsured , more people on the dole, more on disability income, more on food stamps, etc, etc ? ?

  42. DQ #147 . . . Did you hear what OWEbaama gave Mooshelle for her birthday ? Clue : he came back to DC with just the girls .

    Will we ever learn how much her birthday gift will cost us ? ?

  43. What? A DIVORCE? Really? Ha! Ha! Couldn’t resist. Can you imagine the can or worms that would open? Mooshelle is the most invisible first lady I have see in quite a while.

  44. DQ #148 . . . Is Mooshelle invisible, in that she and Valerie Jarrett are the main ” behind the scene ” advisors to OWEbaama ? ?

  45. DQ #149 . . . Considering the massive amounts of info that is collected by NSA , the IRS, and other federal agencies, are we expected to believe the WH claims that they do not know how many enrolled in OWEbaascare, nor that do they not know how many are actually insured via the federal exhange ? ?

  46. DQ # 150 . . . OWEbaama bragged about his economic recovery with a 4 % growth in the 4th qtr. . If that is true, then why does he need an extension of the unemployment benefits ? ?

  47. DQ#151 . . . Dennis Rodman, the official “unofficial ” ambassador to N. Korea , and best ‘bud’ of it’s dictator has gotten much press lately. Is the WH upset that Rodman is getting more coverage than OWEbaama ? ?

  48. DQ # 152 . . . Does Jay Carney believe that by growing a beard, he will suddenly become ‘mature ‘ ? ?

  49. DQ # 153 . . . If the fast food industry raises the minimum wage to $15.00 , does anyone really believe that Mc Donalds will continue to offer it’s one dollar menu ? ?

  50. DQ #154 . . . NJ Gov. Christie is getting hammered by the MSM for the traffic problem caused by one of his staffers. With this type of attack on Christie, one might think that he was responsible for killing four people, including a US ambassador.

    Do the Dems perceive Christie as a major threat to Hillary’s ascension to the OWEbaama throne ? ?

  51. DQ # 155 . . . How high must the National Debt rise, before the Libs realize that their policies CAN NO LONGER WORK ? ?

  52. DQ # 156 . . . Supposedly the unemployment rate 6.7 % . Does anyone really believe that the number hasn’t been ‘fudged ‘ ? ?

  53. DQ # 157 . . . OWEbaama claims to not know anything about Benghazigate, fast and furious, the OWEbaamascare problems, etc. But, as the self-proclaimed smartest man on the planet, how are we expected to believe that he “knows so little ” ? ?

  54. DQ #158 . . . Did you know that according to Holder”s DOJ , it is racist to punish misbehaving black students in school ? ?

  55. DQ #159 . . . Is it possible for a Christian to become a genuine Socialist ? ?

  56. DQ # 160 . . . As OWEbaamascare continues to fall apart, and more and more discover that they are NOT insured, the Spanish version of is also a disaster and causing problems. Will this be another point of discussion for the proponents of ” English Only ” in the USA ? ?

  57. DQ #161 . . . Hillary hired a campaign manager last year, has a new hair style, and allegedly a new wardrobe consultant. Is this a sign that she is running for POTUS ? ?

  58. DQ #162 . . . Under OWEbaamascare, if the insurance companies suffer any losses, the fed will bail them out ! Can you imagine what that will cost, since not enough healthy, young adults have actually purchased insurance ? ?

  59. DQ # 163 . . . Since the Dems believe that Chris Christie is the biggest threat to Hillary’s presidential run , they are attacking him in every way possible. Do you believe that Pelosi said he might cause a traffic jam in order to jeopardize the Super Bowl ? ?

  60. DQ # 164 . . . Sebelius said that 24% of the sign-ups were between 18 and 34 . But, if she claims that she doesn’t know how many actually have signed up, how can she arrive at a percentage ? ?

  62. Richard,

    Good stuff ! Actually, I feel that OWEbaama is LESS than worthless, but unlike the late William F. Buckley, Jr. , I don’t have the exact ‘less’ suffix to describe him. Nonetheless, there are many other words that define this loser.

  63. DQ # 165 . . . When you insert a key into a door lock, are the teeth of the key usually facing up , or down – and why do they face in that direction ? ?

  64. DQ #166 . . . OWEbaama has been by-passing the Constitution since day one, and NOTHING has been done to stop it. Now, he has stated that he will continue this practice and by-pass the Congress. Does he really believe that he and the Dems will be in power FOREVER ? ?

  65. DQ #167 . . . Will the truth about Benghazi, including the involvement of OWEbaama and Hillary EVER come out ? ?

  66. Here is a little food for thought that will give you indigestion or curdle the cream in your coffee:

    This is USA oriented, but Canada & the rest will not be far behind. Whether these changes are good or bad depends, in part, on how we adapt to them. But, ready or not, here they come.

    1. The Post Office
    Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills.

    2. The Check
    Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with check by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks. Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check. This plays right into the death of the post office. If you never paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the post office would absolutely go out of business.

    3. The Newspaper
    The younger generation simply doesn’t read the newspaper. They certainly don’t subscribe to a daily delivered print edition. That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man. As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it. The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance. They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.

    4. The Book
    You say you will never give up the physical book that you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages I said the same thing about downloading music from iTunes. I wanted my hard copy CD. But I quickly changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price without ever leaving home to get the latest music. The same thing will happen with books. You can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview chapter before you buy. And the price is less than half that of a real book. And think of the convenience! Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can’t wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you’re holding a gadget instead of a book.

    5. The Land Line Telephone
    Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, you don’t need it anymore. Most people keep it simply because they’ve always had it. But you are paying double charges for that extra service. All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes.

    6. Music
    This is one of the saddest parts of the change story. The music industry is dying a slow death. Not just because of illegal downloading. It’s the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it. Greed and corruption is the problem. The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing. Over 40% of the music purchased today is “catalogue items,” meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with. Older established artists. This is also true on the live concert circuit. To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, “Appetite for Self-Destruction” by Steve Knopper, and the video documentary, “Before the Music Dies.”

    7. Television Revenues
    To the networks are down dramatically. Not just because of the economy. People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers. And they’re playing games and doing lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV. Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator. Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I say good riddance to most of it. It’s time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery. Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix.

    8. The “Things” That You Own
    Many of the very possessions that we used to own are still in our lives, but we may not actually own them in the future. They may simply reside in “the cloud.” Today your computer has a hard drive and you store your pictures, music, movies, and documents. Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can always re-install it if need be. But all of that is changing. Apple, Microsoft, and Google are all finishing up their latest “cloud services.” That means that when you turn on a computer, the Internet will be built into the operating system. So, Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into the Internet. If you click an icon, it will open something in the Internet cloud. If you save something, it will be saved to the cloud. And you may pay a monthly subscription fee to the cloud provider. In this virtual world, you can access your music or your books, or your whatever from any laptop or handheld device. That’s the good news. But, will you actually own any of this “stuff” or will it all be able to disappear at any moment in a big “Poof?” Will most of the things in our lives be disposable and whimsical? It makes you want to run to the closet and pull out that photo album, grab a book from the shelf, or open up a CD case and pull out the insert.

    9. Joined Handwriting (Cursive Writing)
    Already gone in some schools who no longer teach “joined handwriting” because nearly everything is done now on computers or keyboards of some type (pun not intended)

    10. Privacy
    If there ever was a concept that we can look back on nostalgically, it would be privacy. That’s gone. It’s been gone for a long time anyway.. There are cameras on the street, in most of the buildings, and even built into your computer and cell phone. But you can be sure that 24/7, “They” know who you are and where you are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google Street View. If you buy something, your habit is put into a zillion profiles, and your ads will change to reflect those habits.. “They” will try to get you to buy something else. Again and again.

    All we will have left that can’t be changed are “Memories”.

  67. And many thought that Buck Rodgers was total ‘fantasy ‘ , along with the Dick Tracy wrist TV ! 🙂

  68. DQ #168 . . . Is it my imagination, or has FOX news gone pro -amnesty ?

    How often do Malkin and Coulter, among other anti-amnesty folks, appear on FOX tthese days ?

  69. DQ # 169 . . . The WH claims that almost 4 million have enrolled in OWEbaamascare, even though the real number is around 330,000 . Will the Dems ever come to the realization that they have been snookered ? ?

  70. DQ # 170 . . . Hey guys, let’s take a short break from all of the crap in DC, and consider the following question – why are the button holes on the front of a man’s shirt in the vertical position, BUT the top button hole at the collar is in the HORIZONTAL position ? ?

  71. DQ # 171 . . . Is the above DQ# 170 just a trick question to see if anyone , other than Richard, is still checking- out this site ? ?

  72. DQ # 172 . . . OK, break is over ! Now that the Senate report on Benghanzi has been released, will the stupid voters still put Hillary in the WH in 2016 ? ?

  73. DQ #173 . . . Before being selected as POTUS, the hippocrit ( intentional spelling ) claimed that many things done in the US were unpatriotic, illegal, or unconstitutional. But, as the current resident in the WH, he has reversed himself on most of those very same issues. How long will it take for the stupid voters to realize that they have been victimized by his lies ? ?

  74. DQ # 174 . . . I do not have a Liberal Dictionary, but apparently it explains the concept of ” economic justice ” as – ‘ those that choose to work for a living are required to give one half of their earnings to those that choose NOT to work for a living ‘. Doesn’t this seem to explain the current situation ? ?

  75. DQ # 175 . . . Is OWEbaama able to circumvent the US Constitution, because as an alleged ” Constitutional Professor ” , he ‘knows’ how to by-pass the law ? ?

  76. DQ # 176 . . . Influencing a political vote with money or some other inducement is known as a ‘ bribe’ . However, in the District of Corruption, it is known as PAC money . Why is this permitted ? ?

  77. DQ # 177 . . . Owebaama claims that smoking pot is no more dangerous than alcohol. And he admits to smoking pot when he was a kid. So, does he really believe that it has not had any negative effect on himself ? ?

  78. DQ # 178 . . . Mr. ” I never made a mistake in my life ” OWEbaama claims that his low approval rating is due to – RACISM !! But, not his failed policies . Is he therefore, a lier, stupid, or a racist ? ?

  79. Sadly, in some cases referred to in the following article, we could substitute the word Americans.

    A German’s View on Islam

    This is very interesting in light of the identification of two young Muslims as the perpetrators of the latest Boston Massacre.

    A German’s View on Islam – it’s well worth reading.

    This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. The author’s references to past history are accurate and clear. It’s not a lengthy read, it’s easy to understand, and it’s well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr.Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.

    A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When he was asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

    ‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.’

    We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.

    Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

    The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

    The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people..

    The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?

    History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

    Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

    Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

    Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?) The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.

    In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem, just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation’s shores.

    In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.

    As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts – the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

    Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and they also continue to send it on – before it’s too late.

    And we are silent…

    This is a wake up article and I hope we are wide awake when the elections come this year.

  80. Richard,

    Thank you for that.

  81. DQ # 179 . . . Toronto”s crack- smoking mayor, Bob Ford has a higher approval rating than OWEbaama . Will OWEbaama use this info. to back-up his clam that smoking pot is no more dangerous than alcohol ? ?

  82. DQ # 180 . . . With the threats and promises of a terror attack during the Sochi olympics, if you had tix to attend, would you ??

  83. Wow, Richard… that was awful and awesome. The truth is so hard to hear sometimes, and harder to say. but say and hear it we must. Thank you for sharing that.

  84. JJ… Your questions are thought provoking and entertaining. Sorry I don’t answer, but I do read them all.

  85. T,

    Thanks – glad you haven’t ‘thrown in the towel’ !

  86. DQ # 181 . . . Regarding OWEbaama , what should come first – resignation or impeachment ? ?

  87. I would recommend impeachment if Congress wants to find favor with WE THE PEOPLE in the future. If they don’t grow a pair soon, all may be lost. If we go with resignation, it would need some actions in Congress to serve the people. We first would need to get a Speaker of The House that wasn’t afraid of her or his shadow, then make Nevada do a recall of Harry and accept resignation only if Biden gets the ax also. I just don’t have faith in Biden, as he is a lose cannon and seems to have nothing in the attic.

  88. Richard,

    Agreed. He would never resign , because he is a narcissistic egomaniac. And he claimed that he is the ” best POTUS since Lincoln ” !!

    Both Biden and Pelosi are a complete mystery, in that one has to wonder how in the world were they able to get to where they are now .

    There are some very strange politicians in many countries, but we have more than our fair share !

  92. DQ #185 . . . At present there are over 80 welfare programs in force. Food stamp spending alone is $80 billion annually, double what it was in 2008. Part of the increase is due to OWEbama’s waiver of the work requirement, along with fraud and abuse . Is there any hope that this mess can be cleaned up ? ?

  93. DQ # 185 . . . Each January, the POTUS is required to inform the citizens as to the current state of the Union. When was the last time that a President ACTUALLY informed us to where we stand financially ( debt, deficit, GDP, etc. ) , unemployment situation , relationship with other countries, defense status, etc. RATHER than render a list of phony, political promises ? ?

  94. DQ # 186 . . . When someone elects to pay the penalty,rather than getting OWEbaamascare, where does that money go ? ?

  95. DQ #187 . . . When the CEO of a corporation that employs thousands of workers , earns over a million dollars, the Libs consider that CEO as ‘evil rich’ . However, when an entertainer or pro athlete earn tens of millions of dollars, they are NOT called ‘evil rich’ . WHY ? ?

  96. DQ # 188 . . . With the amount of cold weather that much of the country has experienced this winter, how can the GLOBAL WARMING proponents continue their claims ? ?

  98. DQ # 190 . . . The price of a US postage stamp goes up 3 cents today. Since the percent of increase exceeds the rate of inflation, will there be lawsuits as a result of theses increases ? ?

  99. George Washington gave the first State of the Union address on January 8, 1790. It is interesting reading and tells us where some pitfalls were instigated. One of those was the Post Office!

  100. DQ # 191 . . . Owebaama plans to triple the number of guest worker permits from 10,000 to 30,000 . Is his his idea of ‘job creation ? ?

  101. DQ #192 . . . Owebaama received a certain percentage of votes for POTUS, because those folks thought ” it was time for a Black POTUS “, even though he wasn’t qualified.
    Now, there are those who believe that ” it is time to elect a female POTUS ”

    Why do these people believe that SEX is a qualifier for POTUS ? ?

  102. DQ # 193 . . . At present, although it is rather early in the process, there are quite a few potential GOP members for POTUS . Are you willing to ‘go out on a limb’ and name your choice ? ?

  103. DQ # 194 . . . Do liberals really believe that the gov’t. can do a better job of raising children than the father AND mother of those children ? ?

  104. DQ#195 . . . When O’Reilly interviews OWEbaama on Sunday, will OWEbaama have teleprompters ‘off camera’ in order for his aides to feed him info. ? ?

  105. DQ # 196 . . . SCOTUS justices can remain on the court for life, have lifetime income and top notch health care, regardless of whether their decisions are good or bad !

  106. DQ # 197 . . . Owebaama is raising the minimum wage for Federal workers involved in federal contracts. Is this legal ?

  107. DQ #108 . . . Mooshelle is asking the OWEWbaama faithful to each donate $10 to protect OWEbaamascare. Since the WH claims that OWEbaamascare is on track, then WHY is she asking for $10 if everything is OK ? ?

  108. DQ # 199 . . . . Obviously you realize that the above is actually #198 .

    I did not watch the SOTU, but apparently OWEbaama claims that ‘climate change’ is a FACT . How can he make that claim ? ?

  109. DQ # 200 . . . Another milestone – 200 DQ’s !

    Did OWEbaama really state that he is willing to work together to lower the tax rates for business ? ? Do you believe him ? ?

  110. DQ # 201 . . . The National debt is over $17 trillion. The ‘real’ GDP is approx $10 trillion . Doesn’t ANYONE in the District of Corruption realize that this is a problem ? ?

  111. DQ #202 . . . So Owebaama brags about what he has done, and how well the economy is doing; but then he wants to extend unemployment benefits, raise the minimum wage, etc. . If things are as good as he claims, then why does he want to do the above ? ?

  112. DQ # 203 . . . So OWEbaama also warns Congress that if they don’t co-operate with him, he’ll by-pass them, and then the Dems give him a standing ovation !! Don’t they realize that he essentially said ” screw you if you don’t do it my way ” ? ?

  113. #203 – That portion of the speech followed by the dumbs standing ovation should be a part of every Republican/Conservative campaign this year! That should help us to sweep the decks.

  114. Richard,

    True, but the ‘stupid voters’ probably still won’t understand ! !

  115. DQ # 204 . . . The Liberal entertainers and TV celebraties who make tens of millions each year, but pay their employees on average less than $50,000 per year, complain ( just as their leader OWEbaama does ) about income “inequality “. Doesn’t this make them hypocrits ? ?

  116. DQ # 205 . . . At the rate things are going regarding Benghazigate, is there any hope that SOMEONE will ever be held accountable ? ?

  117. Oxymoron
    Accountable – Benghazi

  118. DQ # 206 . . . The Dems claim that voter ID laws discriminate against the Blacks, inspite of the fact that these laws apply to EVERYONE ! By making theses false claims, aren’t the Dems actually insinuating that Blacks are the potential lawbreakers ? ?

  119. DQ # 207 . . . Or, are the Dems using the Blacks as scapegoats , in order to continue with their own fraudulent voter practices ? ?

  120. DQ # 208 . . . Would a Liberal claim that the above # 206, and 207 were ‘racist’ , since afterall, isn’t “racism ” one of their key talking points ? ?

  124. DQ # 211 . . . Why has OWEbaama had all of his academic records sealed – and what is he hiding ? ?

  125. T ,

  126. DQ # 212 . . . During the O’Reilly interview, OWEbaama said ” OK, Bill you’ve got a long list of my mistakes ” . Did OWEbaama actually ADMIT to making mistakes ? ?

    A female CEO who earns more than a male CEO.

    A male CEO who earns more than a female CEO.

  131. DQ #216 . . . When the Dems waste taxpayer money, they call it ” an investment ” . When they raise taxes, they call it “revenue enhancement”. When the fed dumps money into the market, they call it “quintesential easing” . Therefore, what do they mean when they say ” President OWEbaama ” ? ?

  132. DQ # 217 . . . Regarding #216, when the “Affordable Care Act ” fails ( which it will ) , resulting in a cost of over one trillion dollars, more left uninsured than when it started, more dumped into Medicaid, more with higher premiums and higher deductibles, etc. – Then, what will the Dems call it ? ?

  133. DQ # 218 . . . Jay Carney and the WH gang claim that it is OK to elect to work fewer than 35 hours per week and to take advantage of the OWEbaamascare subsidies, thereby calling it a ” lifestyle choice”. Would anyone with an IQ above room temp believe that crap ? ?

  138. DQ # 223 . . . Ooops, #222 actually WAS a question, wasn’t it ? ?

  139. DQ # 224 . . . OWEbaama constantly promises to “create jobs and improve the economy” . However, thanks to OWEbamascare, the incentive is now to work less and take advantage of the subsidies. The WH calls it a ‘lifestyle choice’ ! Does this make sense ? ?

  143. DQ #228 . . . Several terrorists have entered the USA thru our “open door” Poltical Asylum policy. Will we ever get smart and CLOSE this stupid open door policy ? ?

  144. DQ #229 . . . Last year there was alot of reporting, discussion, etc. regarding the security at our southern border. AZ Gov Jan Brewer made the headlines very often, there were lawsuits, etc. . Now, however nothing seems to be happening . Why not – has a secret amnesty been declared ? ?

  145. DQ # 230 . . . Baretta, the Italian gun maker is going to build a research and manufacturing facility in TN, because of that state’s favorable gun laws.

  146. DQ # 231 . . . Owebaama and the Dems want to raise the minimum wage, even though less than 2 % of all workers work at that level. What about the other 98 % – how much pay increase should they receive, since aren’t the Dems and OWEbaaama constantly demanding FAIRNESS ? ?

  147. DQ # 232 . . . In 2008, Medicaid paid for 40% of childbirth deliveries. In 2010, the number was almost 50 % . With more folks being dumped into medicaid as a result of OWEbaamascare, can you imagine what that new percentage will be ? ?

  148. DQ #233 . . . The ‘lawbreaker in the WH ‘ continues to unilaterally change the deadlines and mandates for OWEbaamascare. Therefore, with all of these changes, isn’t it obvious that his disaster can’t work ? ?

  149. DQ # 234 . . . Holder, the other ‘lawbreaker’ , has ruled that the Fed will defend gay marriage, thereby over- ruling the state’s that are opposed to it. He also made ” fast and furious” disappear . When will he make Benghazigate and the IRS scandal disappear ? ?

  158. DQ # 241 . . . The proponents of ‘raise the debt ceiling’ claim it must be raised to preserve the ‘integrity and good faith of the US ‘ . When will they display some ‘good faith’ and COMMON SENSE by not OVER – SPENDING in the first place ? ?

  159. DQ #242 . . . OWEbaama is raising the minimum wage for all federal contractors to $10.10 per hr. Won’t this raise the cost of most, if not all, federal bids , thereby raising the national debt ? ?

  168. #246 THAT is a scary question, but we all know the answer – – too many! With no checks and balances on the debt ceiling, I think it won’t matter who votes for him. The free country I have loved for 70 years will be no more. I just weep for my kids, grand kids and great grand kids.

  169. When I read this, I cheered for Dutch. Why cast pearls before swine?

    Theodore ” Dutch ” J. Van Kirk was the navigator on the ” Enola Gay” when it dropped the bomb at Hiroshima , Japan, and is the last surviving member of the crew.

    This really happened.
    Dutch was asked to speak at a grammar school recently.
    The young teacher introduced him to her class by identifying him as a veteran of World War Eleven (as in WWII).

    Dutch stood up and walked out of the school without saying a word. End of story.

  170. Richard,

    If you and I happened to be in that classroom, we would probably give him a standing ovation, and then suggest that the so-called teacher take a seat as we explained a little history to the class.

  171. DQ #247 . . . In spite of the fact that the Great Lakes are almost entirely covered in ice, and the amount of snow in so many states this past week, and the increased ice at the polar cap, OWEbaama is preaching global warming AKA ‘climate change’ , and plans to waste more money to battle global warming. Is he ‘for real ‘ ? ?

  172. DQ # 248 . . . Will congress ever ” see the light ” and get rid of the ethanol requirement ? ?

  173. DQ # 251 . . . With the extreme cold and snow this winter, has anyone heard from Al Bore preaching Globaloney Warming lately ? ?

  174. DQ # 252 . . . OWEbaama has now unilaterally made at least 29 changes to his signature disaster. If this were to be his magnificent solution to healthcare for the US, why does he need to make so many changes ? ?

  175. DQ #253 . . . With ‘revisionist’ history being taught in the public schools, and civics NOT being taught, it becomes much easier for a tyrannical gov’t. to do whatever it wishes. (Now, even Justice Scalia, probably the brightest mind on the SCOTUS , is noting the problem with civics not being taught ). Does this help explain why OWEbaama is able to circumvent the Constitution ? ?

  176. DQ # 254 . . . ” Factual ‘ history has demonstrated time and again, that Socialism has NOT worked, and many countries are currently suffering due to Socialism. What part of this does OWEbaama NOT understand ? ?

  177. DQ # 255 . . NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW – Is this OWEbaama’s new theme song ? ?

  178. DQ # 256 . . . Can you imagine what it is like for ‘debt’ counselors and family financial planners who are trying to encourage their clients to engage in sound saving and spending habits, while the loons in DC are adding trillions to the national debt, wasting money like fools, and refusing to have a balanced budget ? ?

  179. DQ # 257 . . . By his own admission, OWEbaama abused alcohol and illegal drugs in his younger days. He also claims that smoking pot has no ill affects. Does this help explain his ideology ? ?

  180. DQ # 258 . . . While OWEbaama is selling climate change to his faithful Libs, John Kerry is on the world stage preaching global warming. How many countries, especially major polluters such as China will pay any attention to him ? ?

  181. DQ # 258 . . . Despite the many failures, bankruptcies, and embarrassments with solar energy systems, OWEbaama continues to subsidize them. Doesn’t he understand that if and when solar becomes economically feasible, companies will proceed on their own without gov’t. subsidies ? ?

  182. DQ # 259 . . . Alcoholics and drug users are usually notorious liars. Could this possibly explain OWEbaama’s avoidance of the truth ? ?

  183. DQ # 260 . . . Dems blame some of the problems with OWEbaamascare on the GOP, in spite of the fact that not a single Repub voted for it.

    Is this an example of stupid politics, or blatant stupidity ? ?

  184. DQ #261 . . . Nukes in the hands of North Korea, Iran, and China don’t appear to be a problem in the eyes of John Kerry. He believes that Global Warming is a weapon of mass destruction. Is he trying to outdo Biden in the ” stupid comments dept ” ? ?

  185. DQ #262 . . . A ” Government of One ” – is this OWEbaama’s ultimate goal ? ?

  186. DQ # 263 . . . OWEbaama, Kerry, and the MSM are preaching Global Warming, AKA Climate Change ,and are doing it in unison. Is this a coincidence or a planned deflection of the OWEbaamascare disaster ? ?

  187. DQ #264 . . . The USA’s Olympic 2 man bobsled had design input from German automaker BMW . Did the German team have any comments regarding this ? ?

  188. DQ # 265 . . . Six yrs ago, a new job classification entered the lexicon, namely ” Community Organizer ” . Now, thanks to a ‘community organizer, will the term ” Permanently Unemployed ” become a new job description ? ?

  189. DQ # 266 . . . Since Congress is supposed to control the purse stings, where in the world is OWEbaama getting all of the money that he is spreading around ? ?

  190. DWQ # 267 . . . Is John Kerry preaching Globalony Warming so that he might get some awards, ala Al Bore, that he could add to his unearned Purple Heart collection ? ?

  191. DQ # 268 . . . OWEbaamascare has a disapproval rating of 60 % . How high must that number rise, before OWEbaama and the Libs get the simple message that we don’t want any part of his disaster ? ?

  192. DQ #269 . . . At last count there are now 90 million able-bodied that are unemployed. And that is not a problem according to OWEbaama, because the ( phony ) unemployment rate is only 6.7% . Does spending 3 days playing golf in CA demonstrate that he is acting ‘presidential’ and concerned about the economy and the jobs situation ? ?

  193. DQ # 270 . . . Now that the FCC wants to invade the newsrooms, will the MSM finally, maybe, possibly, perhaps, comprehend the goals of the ” Fraud in the WH ” ? ?

  194. DQ # 271 . . . Saddam Huessein had ” Baghdad Bob ” ; likewise, doesn’t OWEbaama have Jay Carney ? ?

  197. DQ # 274 . . . Are newsrooms obligated by law to admit OWEbaama’s ” Newsroom Invaders ” into their facilities ? ?

  198. If I owned a newsroom I would take a stand and not allow any govmint to enter my building. Let them arrest me and throw me in jail. During these long winter months (except in Arizona where I am) I heard an interview of an author, Paul Kengor, PHD, who wrote THE COMMUNIST. The reason this is important is the life of Frank Marshall Davis, best friend and confidant of Barack Obama when he lived in Hawaii. He illustrates how all presidents had a mentor in their early years and all of them shared a love of America. Except for Barack who was mentored by a communist.

  199. Monica,

    He had many communists in his life – how many has he retained ?

  200. David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, to name a few. Also, what do you think all those Tzars he appointed are doing? Probably a lot of communists in that group. But, how come we never hear anything about them? Not on Fox or talk radio. There has been a complete shut out by all media, it is so controlled. Are they behind the birth of all the scandals? Too many questions and no answers.

  201. Regarding the Czars, since they answer only to Owebaama, wonder why he hasn’t appointed hundreds of them in order to pursue his socialist agenda. Jarrett and Mooshelle are Owebaama’s most trusted advisors, and just like the Czars, when something falls apart, they get NO BLAME .

    Speaking of blame, when is Sebelius going to be held accountable ?

  202. Oxymoron of the day ” Environmental Protection Agency “

  203. DQ #275 . . . OWEbaama’s Newsroom Invaders have backed off – but only temporarily. They’ll be back with a revised agenda. Why hasn’t the MSM condemned this unnecessary invasion of their turf ?

  204. DQ # 276 . . . If Biden, Sebelius, and Carney , among others, are examples of OWEbaama’s ability to select qualified personnel, how can we expect him to make any type of intelligent decision ? ?

  205. I’m not sure the czars report to zebama. He has so many czars he lost count and what they are supposed to do, het put valarie as their handler and she gets to decide what goes to idiobama. Otherwise his limited mental power would expose too much.

    Another government, further up the ladder, pokes fun at US:

    Canadian editorial humor directed at the US …..Makes you wonder….

    This is Canada ‘s Top Ten List of America ‘s Stupidity… Canada ‘s
    version of David Letterman’s “Top 10”

    10. Only in America … Could politicians talk about the greed of the
    rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.

    9. Only in America … Could people claim that the government still
    discriminates against black Americans when they have a black
    President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal
    workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black. 40+% of
    all federal entitlements goes to black Americans – 3X the rate that go
    to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

    8. Only in America … Could they have had the two people most
    responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the
    Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and
    Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of
    higher taxes.

    7. Only in America … Can they have terrorists kill people in the
    name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that
    Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

    6. Only in America … Would they make people who want to legally
    become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and
    pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss
    letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’
    become American citizens.

    5. Only in America … Could the people who believe in balancing the
    budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as

    4. Only in America … Could you need to present a driver’s license to
    cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

    3. Only in America … Could people demand the government investigate
    whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas
    went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company
    (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes

    2. Only in America … Could the government collect more tax dollars
    from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a
    Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of
    $7Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough

    1. Only in America … Could the rich people – who pay 86% of all
    income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people
    who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

    Thus, Canada proves she can see better than our congress.

  206. Richard,

    Great list – and, it is only the top ten ! Ten down, and ninety more to go .

  207. DQ #277 . . . OWEbaamasare has already wasted a ton of money on the website and it’s fixes, plus the advisors, and the advertising, etc.
    What is the source of these funds – the healthcare fund, or the general fund, or some OWEbaama slush fund ? ?

  208. I’m going to get on the net and find out money sources and departments. I think if we were to graph them all they would lead directly to our pocket.

  209. Richard,

    But, between the lies and deception, is getting to the truth a possibility ? ?

  210. I think Congress is so corrupted 75% wouldn’t know the truth if it came and bit them on the A–!

  211. Here is address for an article about why gun control was made an issue. It is long, but very informative.

  212. A Liberal Paradise

    “A liberal paradise would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment,

    free comprehensive healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free
    clothing, free utilities, and only law enforcement has guns. And believe it or not, such a place does, indeed, exist: It’s called

  213. WordPres got me! Sorry about that.


    You may have heard on the news about a Southern California man who

    was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and allegedly had (by rough estimate) 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also featured a secret escape tunnel.

    By Southern California standards someone owning 100,000 rounds would be called “mentally unstable.”

    Just imagine if he lived elsewhere:

    In San Francisco the liberals would deny he even existed (while he is taken away and his guns given to politicians).

    In Arizona , he’d be called “an avid gun collector.”

    In Arkansas , he’d be called “a novice gun collector.”

    In Utah , he’d be called “moderately well prepared,” but they’d probably reserve judgment until they made sure that he had a corresponding quantity of stored food.”

    In Kansas, he’d be “A guy down the road you would want to have for a friend.”

    In Montana and Kentucky, he’d be called “The neighborhood ‘Go-To’ guy.”

    In Alabama, he’d be called “a likely gubernatorial candidate.”

    In Georgia, he’d be called “an eligible bachelor.”

    In North Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi, and South Carolina he would be called a “deer hunting buddy.”

    And in Texas he’s just “Bubba, who’s a little short on ammo.”

  215. Richard,

    Good stuff. Also having issues with Word Press today – hope this goes thru !!

  216. Richard, I liked your two lists. The Canadians really know who we are. The the gun list, so true.

  217. DQ #280 . . . ” Federal Budget ”
    ” Constitutional Adherance ”
    ” Senate Majority ‘Leader’ ”

    Would any of the above qualify as an ” Oxymoron of the Day ” ? ?

  218. DQ #281 . . . Can a ‘smartphone’ really increase the IQ of a ‘stupid voter’ ? ?

  219. DQ # 282 . . . As the situatuion in the Ukraine deteriorates, does anyone believe OWEbaama when he says that ” there will be costs ” ? ?

  220. Thanks, Monica. This URL explains immigration in a way there is no mistaking the effects on all counties. The You Tube video was updated in 2010. I can’t believe this Roy Beck/Numbers video was been available for over ten years and illegal immigration is still rampant.

    It wouldn’t hurt to have all Congressional ides view this and have a disc copy in all offices. It should also be required viewing for every State Legislators and Governors on up the political behemoth. In other words? All current and future political animals and hopefuls!

    I was sent a link to the Texas gubernatorial race. After reading the article, I read some of the responses and I’d have to agree: Hope she wins and hopefully we will get more of her caliber.

  221. DQ #283 . . . Is Karzai upset with the US because we have cut off the cash flow , or because with US troops gone, he’ll have to ‘make nice’ with the Taliban in order to enjoy his ill-gotten gains ? ?

  222. DQ #284 . . . SOS Kerry recently gave $330 million of our money to Indonesia under the guise of ” Globalaloney Warming ” . Now , why is he going to Kiev – does he really believe that he can be instrumental in negotiations, or does he want to dispense more US cash ? ?

  223. DQ # 285 . . . Does OWEbaama really believe that as POTUS , he can threaten Putin ? ?

  224. DQ #286 . . . With the problems in the Ukraine, how many will seek political asylum in the US ? ?

  225. DQ #287 . . . As the desperation increases for the Dems , so does the membership in their ‘ liars club ‘. So, in addition to OWEbaama, Reid, Holder, and Sebelius, who will be the next person of note to join the club ? ?

  226. DQ # 288 . . . Not a single Repub signed on to OWEbaamascare, nonetheless, the Dems blame the GOP for the problems with the ACA . Sadly, millions believe that nonsense ! Therefore , isn’t it easy to understand why OWEbaama is able to get away with his lawless activities , especially with the MSM leading the way ? ?

  227. DQ # 289 . . . In spite of impeachment, and the publicizing of his sexcapades , along with baggage he and Hillary brought form Arkansas, Billy Bob is the senior spokesman for the Dems ! What does that say about the integrity of the Democrats ? ?

  228. DQ # 290 . . . Perhaps it’s just me, but doesn’t it seem strange posting comments on an article called ” Merry Christmas ” ? ?

  229. Yup!

  230. Looks like politics are on the move.

    Do You Know This Guy?
    He is Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.
    Then you’ll probably say, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?”
    Well, he is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.
    He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.
    He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.
    He and the Clintons were friends and very politically intertwined for many years.
    Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.
    In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.
    In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
    Ed Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.
    He was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.
    After serving less than five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.
    To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.
    About now you are saying, “So what!”
    Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky.
    That’s right; Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.
    Now Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5 million dollar NYC apartment.
    Has anyone heard mention of any of this in any of the media?
    If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in- law, the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and over.
    And yet liberals say there are no double standards in political reporting.
    And people are already talking about Hillary as our next President!
    And then there is possibly Chelsea for president in our future!
    The cycle never ends!
    Lies and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular.
    When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.
    ~~Thomas Jefferson


  231. Richard,

    -Yes, I was aware of the Chelsea Mezvinsky marriage, but not the 10.5 million appt. As I’ve said many times – the Clintons never go away .

    Also, just imagine how much has NOT been published about them !

    Thanks for the update .

  232. Regarding DQ #284, the WH announced that it is giving a $1 billion loan guarantee to the Ukraine gov’t. Perhaps the Ukrainians should consider looking at off- shore accounts of their former president.

  233. I would think we should check the OWEbama off shore accounts and his tsars. When are we going to help foreign powers only with goods and services? NO money because it never gets to its intended targets. ONE BILLION that we are going to have to borrow ourselves? Sure, we’ll just borrow another trillion or two. Stupid don’t got nothin’ on this administration.

  234. Richard,

    I suspect that only a Liberal would borrow money to GIVE to another country. We have Veterans who sufferd while defending this country and are living on the streets, and at the same time this gov’t. is giving cash to outsiders. We can’t buy allies, as as been demonstrated time and time again, but this gov’t. continues to try to buy friends.

    OWEbaama now has a $3.9 trillion tax and spend budget proposal, ( which has a built -in deficit ) and in spite of our economic problems the Libs will go along with it . INSANITY ! !

  235. DQ # 291 . . . When will Congress and the SCOTUS inform the fraud in the WH that all three branches of our gov’t. are EQUAL , and that he is not authorized to change laws whenever he decides ? ?

  236. DQ #292 . . . OWEbaama has unilateraly put in place a variety of delays to OWEbaamascare, gave exemptions to certain groups,and pushing back the individual mandate until 2017, plus letting individuals keep their ‘unapproved’ policies. So, why is the GOP upset , since afterall they wanted delays and pushbacks ? ?

  237. DQ # 293 . . . The ASA scandal and Lois Lerner stalemate seems to be at a standoff . Will Issa finally tire of this crap, and charge her with ” contempt ” ? ?

  238. After all the bastardization of the insurance boondoggle, I doubt anybody understands it. So will Congress follow through on their threats and just unilaterally declare it null and void from the day it was born? I doubt it. Congress has a knack for not admitting they were wrong. We need to hold Congress in contempt of the Constitution and failure to uphold their OATH of office. That is why the Lois Lerner thing is pointing at what is not important. If OWEbamacare were to be killed it would then be appropriate to prosecute those who jumped on the care bill and enriched themselves. It would actually require a whole new legal arm just to prosecute everyone involved including insurances, doctors and IRS agents getting a bonus. What a farce!

  239. DQ # 294 . . . But, if all of these scandals ( IRS , ASA , Benghazi, etc. ) can be traced back to the WH , why not proceed in that direction ?

  240. DQ #295 . . . And, isn’t it about time that something can be done to reign in this ‘out of control’ WH ? ?

  241. DQ # 296 . . . Now that CO has legalized pot, the state will be spending a ton of money to train police and other appropriate personnel to recognize when someone is under the influence, plus advertising the penalties for DUI . Therefore how much of the tax on pot money will remain after all of the above expenses ? ?

  242. DWQ # 297 . . . Does OWEbaamascare include dental coverage, since I’ve heard no comments from dentists ? ?

  243. DQ # 298 . . . Kathleen Sebelius , an honors graduate of the ” Nancy Pelosi Institute of Stupidity ” , still can’t tell us how many have actually enrolled in OWEbaamascare, even though it’s been almost 6 months since the roll-out of the disaster ! Why is she still on the payroll ? ?

  244. DQ #299 . . . The Dems are in now in ” distraction mode # 6,873, and are preaching ‘climate change’ as another attempted diversion from the various scandals, and the OWEbaamascare disaster . When will the lies stop and the truthfulness begin ? ?

  245. DQ # 300 . . . Now that we’ve had the great lakes nearly totally frozen, along with some of the coldest temps. , plus possibly the third highest total recorded snowfall , where has Al ” global warming ” Bore been hiding ? ?

  246. DQ #301 . . . The energy -producing fossil fuels are heavily regulated and taxed; BUT , the wind and solar schemes are NOT. Plus, the wind and solar get grants, subsidies, guarantees, etc. WHY ? ?

  247. DQ # 302 . . . Allow me to ‘ go off the reservation’ and do a little Andy Rooney comment – have you noticed that the toilet tissue cardboard rolls are a lot thinner these days, and consequently the roll is now oval in stead of round ? ?

  248. DQ # 303 . . . Since the planet did not become warmer, the ” Global Warming ” loons swithched to ” Climate Change” . However, with the severe winter and excess snow cover, will they opt for a ‘new term ‘ – perhaps something like ” CLIMATE CONTROL ” . . . . then OWEbaama can dispense grants for schemes to control the weather ? ?

  249. DQ # 304 . . . Is it true that OWEbaama now wants ‘laziness ‘ to be considered a ‘disease’ , and will therefore want funding for it ? ?

  250. DQ # 305 . . . As OWEbaamascare continues to fall apart, the WH has decided that anyone can escape the enrollment by simply declaring that it would be a ” hardship” to do so. What will be the next ” excuse ” from the WH as they continue attempts to salvage their own disaster ? ?

  251. DQ #306 . . . When OWEbaamascare finally fails, will we ever know the final TRUE cost, not just the website fiasco, but the closing of medical practices, hospitals, lives impacted, jobs lost, wages reduced, companies losing business, etc, etc, ? ?

  252. DQ # 307 . . . Now that OWEbaama has decided the anyone who works ‘overtime’ must be paid an overtime rate , does that mean that everyone must now ‘punch in and punch out ‘ ? ?

  253. DQ # 308 . . . Why not have Congress go on vacation along with the SCOTUS , since neither of them are doing anything to reign -in OWEbaama and Holder’s DOJ ? ?

  254. Oxymoron of the day ” Hard Work “

  255. DQ #309 . . . Politicians on both sides claim that job creation is a main priority. If so, why does the gov’t . issue tens of thousands of ‘work permits’ to foreigners each month ? ?

  256. DQ # 310 . . . Have you noticed that there is almost always some sort of ‘happening’ that takes the OWEbaama scandals ( Benghazi, ASA, IRS , etc. ) off the front pages, and now it is the ‘missing plane’ .

  257. DQ # 311 . . . Since the USA developed the ‘Internet’ ( not AL Bore ) , why does OWEbaama want to relinquish control of it ? ?

  258. DQ #312 . . . As OWEbaamascare continues to implode, more tactics are evolving. Apparently if one insurance company is suffering losses, then the companies that are making a profit will be forced to share those profits will those that lost money . Isn’t this considered SOCIALISM ? ?

  259. DQ # 313 . . . Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg is launching a campaign to ban the word ” bossy ” , and equating it to a ‘B ‘ word . As a ‘boss’ herself, doesn’t she have better things to do ? ?

  260. DQ # 314 . . . Crimea will probably vote to align with the Putin regime. How soon will Putin start chipping – away at the rest of the Ukraine ? ?

  261. DQ #315 . . . How many Dems will lose their bids for re-election due to the OWEbaamascare disaster ? ?

  262. DQ #316 . . . And, as OWEbaamascare continues to self-destruct, will the GOP get it’s act together in time to actually take control of the Congress ,and consequently put a halt to the Imperialistic actions of the fraud in the WH ? ?

  263. DQ # 317 . . . Does anyone really believe that OWEbaama’s ‘soft’ sanctions on Russia ,due to it’s invasion of Crimea, will have any serious effect ? ?

  264. DQ #318 . . . Sebelius was just at a Black church to sell OWEbaamascare. However, isn”t this contrary to the Liberal mantra of “separation of Church and State ” ? ?

  265. DQ # 319 . . . GM has a 1.7 million vehicle recall , as a result of accumulated problems with several different models. Will GM be in need of another bailout ? ?

  266. DQ #320 . . . In desperation, the WH is airing a bunch of OWEbaamascare TV ads , some of which are just plain ‘stupid ‘ , in order to induce the young adults to sign up . Does the WH really believe that these ads will be successful, and that this generation is ‘too dumb’ to know better ? ?

  267. I edited the spacing and punctuation. Hope you get it okay.

    And you wonder why people get concerned.
    Wonder why NC now requires voter ID?

    In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).

    In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).

    In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

    In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

    The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.

    Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.

    In one Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

    NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote. Imagine that!


  268. And on the lighter side…………

    Last Tuesday President Obama got off the helicopter in front of The White House – carrying a baby piglet under each arm.
    The squared-away Marine guard snapped to attention, saluted and said: “Nice pigs, sir.”

    The President replied: “These are not pigs. These are Authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and I got one for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.”

    The squared-away Marine again snapped to attention, salutes and said, “Excellent trade, sir.”

  269. Many of those voting irregularities were produced right after the voting, but as usual, NOTHING was done !

  270. RE : piglets – good one . Too bad he couldn’t carry more than two ! !

  271. DQ # 321 . . . Most experts agree that OWEbaamascare CANNOT work , but the WH continues to waste money trying to make it happen. Is the sky the limit for this massive amount of wasteful spending, especially since we have a $17 trillion debt ? ?

  272. DQ # 322 . . . With the on- going mystery of the missing Malaysian airliner, how soon will the conspiracy theorists suggest it was captured by aliens from outer space ? ?

  273. DQ # 323 . . . Will the OWEbaamaites EVER concede the notion that their boy is NOT qualified to be the POTUS ? ?

  274. DQ #324 . . . The WH is fudging the number of OWEbaamascare enrollees, Sebelius claims she doesn’t KNOW how many are enrolled, and the insurance companies have numbers that are about 75% lower than the WH – therefore who is correct ? ?

  275. DQ # 325 . . . Just heard that a Black church in PA is signing- up members in OWEbaamascare. Haven’t the Dems been constantly preaching ” separation of Church and State ” ? ?

  276. DQ # 326 . . . When Joe Biden said that he had a shotgun in his home, why weren’t the WH and the anti-gun Dems outraged ? ?

  277. DQ # 327 . . . Russia has had a long range plan to reconstruct the old USSR, and Putin is obviously following it. Does OWEbaama really believe that his ‘soft’ sanctions will deter Putin in any way , shape, or form ? ?

  278. DQ #328 . . . Right now, Mooshelle, her girls and mother, along with a large staff , are enjoying a vacation in China. How much is that costing us ? ?

  279. DQ # 329 . . . Is it possible that the missing Malaysian airliner was able to land in Pakistan , since it apparently had a sufficient amount of fuel to do so ? ?

  280. DQ #330 . . . Putin is expanding Russia, Iran is slow to reduce it’s WMD potential, China is tryng to devalue the US dollar, the WH wants to give up control of the internet, and OWEbaama’s concern is his NCAA basketball brackets – is this what is now known as LEADERSHIP ? ?

  281. DQ #331 . . . Jimmy Carter has often been called the worst ( or one of the worst ) US presidents . And., since OWEbaama won’t even call him for advice, as he has done with other former presidents, does this give further credence to Carter’s ineptness ? ?

  282. DQ # 332 . . . Since Billy Bob is considered the ‘elder spokesman’ for the Dems, and since he opposed to giving-up control of the internet, why won’t OWEbaama listen to him ? ?

  283. DQ #333 . . . Regarding Malaysian HM370 , Malaysia was slow to inform the world that the airliner was missing, then the Prime Minister announced that it “ended it’s flight in the southern Indian ocean “, even though there was NO physical evidence . Should we accept anything that they say ? ?

  284. DQ #334 . . . The regime is wasting ( the Dems would say ‘investing’ ) $17 million per month on ads for OWEbaamascare , which is a disaster and cannot work. And to make matters worse, the ads are absurd and won’t convince anyone to change their mind. Is this what the Dems consider being “responsible” ? ?

  285. Sorry, but the Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches of this United States has outlawed the use of the word “responsible” in favor of transparent, because they don’t know the first thing about either word!

    Why don’t we all go live in New Jersey where we can get a retirement check and work part-time for the State for a six figure additional income. We’ll get paid by the day and will have the same title as every one else and probably get paid a day for just coming in to check our E-mail? Hand caught in the cash drawer, anyone?

    We need to start a chant “THROW THE BUMS OUT” then just do it. We need to wipe the chalk/white boards clean and start fresh.

  286. Richard,

    If it weren’t for those “bennies” , who would want to live in NJ ?
    Members of Congress spend 1/2 of their time in campaign mode, hence the limited amount of work that gets done. DC needs a real good housecleaning.

    Why are there Congressional hearings, such as the current IRS scandal, since there doesn’t appear to be any penalty for non-answers, along with stonewalling ? For example the Director of the IRS said that ” it make take YEARS ” to produce the requested E-mails ! ! And, Lois Loerner apparently can plead the Fifth as often as she wishes ! !

  287. DQ # 335 . . . If you were offered $10 million to leave the US , and never return , would you take it , and where would you go ? ?

  288. DQ # 336 . . . It has been stated many times – ” OWEbaama is a FAILURE ” , and many folks in other countries have been asking ” why do the citizens of the US tolerate the fraud in our WH ” ? ?

  289. DQ # 337 . . . OWEbaama wants us to inflate our tires to the proper pressure in order to save energy – but he and Mooshelle fly all around the world and leave a carbon footprint the size of Kansas ! Does he believe that he can do whatever he pleases because he considers himself to be the son of Allah ? ?

  290. DQ # 338 . . . When is a ‘deadline’ NOT a “deadline ” ?

    Primary answer – when it applies to OWEbaamascare !

  291. DQ # 339 . . . Since OWEbaama prefers to escape DC as often as possible, has he even mentioned the mudslide disaster in WA state, and will he pay a visit there and do his usual ‘ photo op ‘ routine ? ?

  292. DQ # 340 . . . Is it or is it not IDIOTIC for us to give up control of the internet ? ?

  293. DQ # 341 . . . Apparently the OWEbaamascare ‘navigators ‘ at the Texas border are enrolling Mexicans at the Mexican Consulate. How desperate has the fraud in the WH become in order to salvage his namesake disaster ? ?

  294. DQ # 342 . . . Sebelius has made many trips to FL this month to encourage enrollment in OWEbaamascare . However , since there are many retirees in FL, and since OWEbaamascare steals money from Medicare Advantage , how many seniors will support this disaster ? ?

  295. DQ # 343 . . . If the stated goal of OWEbaamascare was to provide insurance for the uninsured, then WHY would it force the cancellation of policies of folks who had insurance ? ?

  296. DQ # 344 . . . Does ANYONE really believe that Sebelius does NOT know how many have actually enrolled in OWEbaamascare,and therefore actually have insurance which has been ‘paid for’ ? ? ANYONE ? ? ? ?

  297. DQ # 345 . . . Pelosi claims that 9.5 million have enrolled in OWEbaamascare , while Sebelius claims that HHS does not know the number, and Jay Carney has the number around 6 million . So, who do we believe ? ?

  298. DQ # 346 . . . Since Easter is a religious Holyday, but does not have a fixed calendar date ( such as Christmas on Dec. 25th ) , the Pope and leaders of various Christian religions are going to meet to decide on a fixed month and sunday for Easter. What month do you think they will select ? ?

  299. DQ # 347 . . . Regarding DQ #346 , does April first apply ? ?

  300. DQ # 348 . . . For 6 months, Sebelius did not know , nor did OWEbaama, how many enrolled in OWEbaamascare, However on April 1st, immediately after the deadline expired, the ‘goal’ of 7 million was reached ! ! Would this amazing feat be considered a MRACLE ? ?

  301. DQ # 349 . . . Regarding the above mentioned Miracle in the Rose Garden, Biden and NOT Sebelius stood next to OWEbaama for the BIG annonucement of the 7 million enrolled in OWEbaamascaare . Does this mean that Sebelius is FINALLY going to be fired ? ?

  302. DQ # 350 . . . OWEbaamascare cannot work ; but it is costing hundreds of billions of dollars in wasteful spending for everyone from the US gov’t. to the insurance companies, to the medical providers, enrollees and all other entities . Can you imagine what the TOTAL , final cost to this disaster will be ? ?

  303. DQ # 351 . . . Over 22 million folks are on the federal payroll. Add to that all state and local gov’t. employees, plus the military, plus those on welfare, plus the unemployed, and that adds -up to a lot of people who produce NOTHING ! Will we ever get out of debt ? ?

  304. DQ # 352 . . . Apparently some folks who were UNsuccesful in enrolling in OWEbaamascare , have just received letters that they WERE ENROLLED . Does this help to explain the MIRACLE IN THE ROSE GARDEN , namely the 7.1 million enrollees ? ?

  305. DQ # 353 . . . Apparently working only 30 hours per week is now considered to be working ‘full time’ . Companies are then hiring ‘part-timers’ to make up the other 10 hours. Is this now known as “JOB CREATION VIA SEMANTICS ” ? ?

  306. DQ # 351 – We will not see a debt free government in our lifetime, nor our grand children’s lifetimes. That was why the debt ceiling was vaporized.

    I just saw a headline that Congress isn’t paid enough! How about the Military? I think we would get a volunteer Military if we raised their wages to allow them to live on their income and have families. In many cases, the early recruits in the Armed Services do not make minimum wage. I’m willing to see them respected for putting their life on the line by paying them an honest wage. I am also willing to see them brought home and put on our four borders. We need appropriate military representation on our borders to secure our freedoms. Congress needs to pass a bill that ENGLISH is the language of America!

  307. Agreed, Congress is overpaid, and not just in salary – but in benefits, perks, etc. And, I’ve also advocated that our military be brought home from places where they are not actually needed ( surveillence excepted ) and placed on the borders. And, ENGLISH should be the language of the USA , and by not having it, it is obvious as to why we have the current divisiveness .

    As a Vet, I’m aware of the many problems in the system, and the money that is being diverted to countries that despise us , instead of to our military.

  308. DQ # 354 . . . Now that the regime has ‘solved’ the healthcare issue via SEMANTICS ( and by lying, I might add ) , will the Dems now finally focus on JOBS , and will they attempt to solve the situation by also reverting to SEMANTICS ? ?

  309. DQ # 355 . . . Now that OWEbaamascare has reached the ” magic ” 7 million enrollment , will the “real or actual ” numbers ever be released ?

  310. DQ # 356 . . . Now, as a follow- up to DQ # 345 , will Sebelius be ‘let go’ ? ?

  311. DQ # 357 . . . Will the WH press corps ever tire of the crap that Jay Carney continues to spew ? ?

  312. Oxymoron of the day – ‘Pre-existing Condition’ Insurance

  313. DQ # 358 . . . Considering the amount of destruction that OWEbaama has caused, both here and abroad, is he also hurting the Democrat Party ? ?

  314. DQ # 359 . . . OWEbaama wastes a lot of money as he continues to fly around the country in ‘campaign mode ‘ while trying to convince the faithful to accept and believe his BS . But, at each of these stops, much is spent for security – how much of that is paid by the local communities ? ?

  315. DQ #360 . . . Supposedly the IRS refunded over $ 4 billion for fraudulent returns , including millions that went to a SINGLE address in Europe ! Do you really want the IRS to be involved in the healthcare system ? ?

  316. DQ # 361 . . . As we all know, OWEbaama promised that OWEbaamascare would reduce the cost of healthcare. However, by charging taxes or fees on medical device companies, pharmaceutical companies, medical insurance plans, Medicare payroll increases, “Cadillac ” policies, etc. , all of which INCREASE the cost of healthcare – then isn’t it safe to say that he flat out LIED ? ?

  317. DQ # 362 . . . Since OWEbaamascare is putting many on Medicaid, resulting in increased costs to the states, how many Governors are looking forward to this added expense ? ?

  318. DQ #363 . . . Regarding DQ # 349 , it took less than 10 days for Sebellius to be ‘fired’ . Why has OWEbaama nominated someone with NO healthcare experience to replace Sebelius ? ?

  319. Oxymoron of the day – ‘ pre-existing condition ‘ insurance

  320. DQ # 364 . . . Why is the walkway in the FRONT of a home referred to as the ‘ SIDEwalk ‘ ? ?

  321. DQ # 365 . . . The breakdown of the taxes collected in 2013 is as follows :

    69% Medicare, medicaid , SS , and other federal benefits

    18% Defense

    6% Interest

    7% Education, transportation , etc.

    How much can really be done effectively with that last 7 % ? ?

  322. DQ # 366 . . . Is it possible to produce “de-hydrated water ” ? ?

  323. Oxymoron of the day – Religious Tolerance


    Wow! That’s quite an address. This is an opinion essay regarding “Nullification”. I have been reading her opinions for the last few weeks and she really tells it like it is. Sadly, the paper was taken over and is now dropping the opinion page among other things! Too controversial, I guess. Looks like our daily paper could end up a weekly. Maybe there will be someone to step up and start a balanced paper. Well, I can dream, can’t I?

  325. Richard,

    Apparently the Fed is still acquiring more land, especially in the oil field areas. Wonder where that money is coming from .

  326. DQ # 367 . . . Vladimir Putin is expanding Russia, in what appears to be a re-unification of the USSR. Does he appear to be following the Adolph Hitler playbook ? ?

  327. DQ # 368 . . . The Census Bureau has changed part of it’s questionaire which will result in making OWEbaamascare appear to be more successful.
    Does anyone really believe that it was NOT pre-planned ? ?

  328. DQ # 369 . . . Apparently Eric Holder has ‘caught -on ‘ to OWEbaama’s tactic to ” avoid the heat by getting out of the kitchen” , in that he is now going out to make speeches to the faithful, in other words – preaching to the choir . Is this what they consider to be part of their job requirement, or are they trying to justify their bad decisions ? ?

  329. On the chance that someone is still here, I’d like to say have a HAPPY EASTER ! !

  330. DQ # 370 . . . Regarding DQ #348 , the MIRACLE in the Rose Garden , has anyone in the MSM ever questioed the Regime how they went from NO info ( for 6 months ) as to how many enrolled in OWEbaamascare , and suddenly within hours after the deadline expired, then goal of 7 million was
    reached ? ?

  331. DQ # 371 . . . These days, school students no longer get days off for Easter. Instead it is now known as ‘Spring Break ‘ . Is this what is now lnown as ” Religious Tolerance ” ? ?

  332. DQ # 372 . . . Since this thread is still listed under ” Merry Christmas ” , how long will it survive due to the aspect of ” Religious Tolerance” , as mentioned above ? ?

  333. DQ #373 . . . Some members of Congress want to grant citizenship to illegals if they serve in the military. However , OWEbaama wants to downsize the military. So, where is the LOGIC in this ? ?

  334. DQ # 374 . . . Owebaama and most members of Congress have , at various times, said that ” Washington is the problem “, or that the ” Gov’t. is broken ” , or words to that effect. And, since they are referring to themselves , why don’t THEY actually do something, and FIX the problem ? ? ?

  335. DQ # 375 . . . Since OWEbaama took an oath to perform the “duties of the POTUS ” , do those ‘duties’ include flying around the country in campaign mode, and preaching to the choir, lying, and even condemning the GOP ? ?

  336. DQ # 376 . . . Ar the end of his term in office, the POTUS will usually pardon certain prisoners – will OWEbaama pardon more than all other presidents combined ? ?

  337. DQ # 377 . . . The Dems are getting more desperate regarding potential losses in the up-coming mid-terms. So, is OWEbaama going to release up to 200,000 felons in order to get more Dem votes ? ?

  338. DQ# 378 . . . We have ” Visa Waiver” agreements with 38 countries, which means that it is rather easy for terrorists to enter the US . In light of 911 and all of the other terrorist type activities, WHY do we continue with the waivers ? ?

  339. DQ # 379 . . . The regime claims that the number of deportations is higher than ever. However, when an illegal is turned away AT THE BORDER, the regime is classifying that as a “deportation” . Clearly, it is NOT a deportation. When will the MSM start to do their job and tell the truth for s change ? ?

  340. DQ # 380 . . . Approx. 2 million folks have been put into Medicaid due to OWEbaamascare. However due to the low re-imbursement rate, many doctors have stopped or have cut back taking Medicaid patients. And, some doctors that are still treating a small number of Medicaid patients are increasing the charges on regular patients in order to cover the losses due to the low Medicaid reimbursement. This will of course result in increased premiums for all medical insurance policies. So, how can anyone claim that OEbaamascare has lowered the cost of healthcare ? ?

  341. DQ # 381 . . . What have the Congressional hearings on Benghazi accomplished, and when will those in the State Dept be held accountable for their dereliction of duty ? ?

  342. DQ # 382 . . . Do the Dems really believe that Hillary will be their top candidate in 2016, even though the spokespersons for the State Dept. can’t name just ONE real accomplishment during her tenure ? ?

  343. DQ # 383 . . . As a casual observance, have you noticed that the manufacturers of toilet tissue have reduced the width of the rolls, but will advertise that there are MORE sheets per roll ? ?

  344. DQ # 384 . . . Another casual observance : breakfast cereals are sold by ‘weight’, but the companies use larger than necessary boxes, and then don’t fill the boxes to a reasonable capacity, whereby the consumer ” assumes ” the box is full and that they are getting a larger amount of product . The company’s ” excuse ” for the almost half-empty box is
    ” product settling ” , even for products that really don’t need ‘settling ‘ .
    Whatever happened to ‘truth in advertising ‘ ? ?

  345. DQ # 385 . . . Corruption in governments has existed for thousands of years – will mankind EVER achieve a government system that is honest and corruption- free ? ?

  346. DQ # 386 . . . If I were to say that OWEbaama is one of our greatest presidents, would you refute my comment, or simply ignore it , perhaps under the guise that ” JJ has lost his or her mind ” ? ?

  347. DQ # 387 . . . Or, is it simply, finally time to ” throw in the towel ” ? ?

  348. In his socialist world he would be considered on the greatest. For the rest of us, worse than Jimma Carter.

  349. Monica,

    Agreed. Thanks for response – it was getting very “lonely” out here ! ! 🙂

    Actually, with the amount of destruction that he has caused, he will probably be the WORST .

  350. DQ # 388 . . . After more than ONE YEAR , more members of the so-called WH Press Corps are ” finally ” beginning to realize the amount of lies and cover – up activity that has taken place regarding Benghazi . How can they realistically consider themselves to be ” journalists ” ? ?

  351. DQ # 389 . . . Isn’t it way past time for Jay Carney to step down, or better yet, should the ” real ” journalists in the WH briefing room stage a ” walk out ” and call for Carney to leave ? ?

  352. I would really love to see the WH “journalists” stage a walk out. After once having grown a pair, they may have some of the wool, stardust or political refuse start to leave their eyes and maybe clear their vision???

  353. Richard,

    For most of the MSM , ” clear vision ” is an OXYMORON ! !

  354. DAQ # 390 . . . American manufacturers have been moving production to China primarily for cheap labor. The regime wants to ‘create ‘ jobs and increase the minimum wage . However, how does increasing the cost of labor help to ‘create’ jobs ? ?

  355. DQ # 391 . . . Owebaama bragged how he ‘ saved ‘ GM and that it was then profitable. However, the GM bail out actually COST us more than $ 1.1 billion . Will Owebaama ever disclose that ‘little’ bit of info. ? ?

  356. DQ # 392 . . . The poverty line for a family of 4 is now approx. $24,500 . A family of 4 on welfare, food stamps, etc. , gets the equivalent benefits of approx. $60,000 of gross income . Therefore, what’s wrong with the system ? ?

  357. DQ # 393 . . . Finally, finally, John Boehner has called for a special committee to pursue the Benghazi cover-up . I think that Trey Gowdy would be an excellent choice to chair that group – what say you ? ?

  358. DQ # 394 . . . Jay Carney constantly criticizes Fox News . Is that because the Fox reporters refuse to accept Carney’s BS ? ?

  359. DQ # 395 . . . Regarding the Benghazi select committee, its’ success might be limited, if the WH continues to overly ” redact” e-mails ( under the guise of National Security ) and correspondence, along with taking excessive time to respond to requests. Will the select committee have the ability to eliminate these tactics and therefore ” cut to the chase ” and get to the truth ? ?

  360. DQ # 396 . . . How can anyone with an IQ above room temp really believe that the economy is doing great, when our national debt is increasing by leaps and bounds ? ?

  361. DQ # 397 . . . The WH now claims that 8.01 million are now covered by OWEbaamascare. At the same time, they claim that don’t know how many have actually PAID for their insurance. How much longer must we endure this BS ? ?

  362. DQ # 398 . . . The so-called unemployment rate is below 6.5 % . However, as more and more eligible workers leave the job pool, and as the number of part time workers increases, along with the number of full timers decreasing, isn’t the so-called unemployment rate almost “meaningless ” ? ?

  363. DQ # 399 . . . Now that a select committee has been called , will the MSM FINALLY concede even the ‘possibility’ of a cover-up ? ?

  364. DQ # 400 . . . Does ‘Carnival ‘ Carney really comprehend the job requirements of the ” WH Press Secretary ” ? ?

  365. DQ # 401 . . . Should DQ # 399 have included the word ” Benghazi ” ? ?

  366. JJ – The time has come for you to write a full article relevant to all your questions – in other words, answer your questions with a commentary. Your mind seems to be like a steel trap with its ability to see beyond stonewall’s and misdirection’s thrown in an attempt to hide politicians and media’s true agenda. Your questions never fail to give my brain a burst of insight and aids me in finding different angles. What say, gang?

  367. I agree. I feel like I am living in a foreign country. Where is the America I love?

  368. What happened to Larry? Is he OK?

  369. Richard,

    Thanks for the response. Allow me to share several thoughts as to why I offer more questions than comments. Going back to my very first day in high school, the principal offered many thoughts , suggestions, ideas, etc. regarding this new phase in our life cycle. One of the suggestions was : you have two ears and one mouth – use them accordingly. And in an attempt to learn, I tend to ask questions, rather than spout off. Sometimes I’ll preface the question with a short comment, which might give a clue as to what type of answer I might expect. Often, though, I’ll approach the topic from a different angle ( as you indicated ) which at times results in questions as to how my mind works !

    Another reason is that I’m not a good writer – it takes me awhile to ” put pen to paper ” in an effort to convey my thoughts . In fact, back in elementary school, writing what was then called a ” composition ” was a real chore for me. And , doing a ‘book report’ in high school was even worse !

    And as I’m ‘baring my soul ‘ here , I’ll confess that I’m not a good conversationalist , which might help explain why I’m not a good writer .

    Lastly, I’m just trying to keep this site active until Larry can once again grace us with his outstanding wordsmith capabilities.

    That having been said, hopefully at some time I’ll muster the courage , and follow your suggestion to offer a commentary. Hopefully ! ! 🙂

  370. Monica,

    Don’t know how or what Larry is doing , other than his last post on Christmas Eve , which appears on this site and the TOTD site.

    Also, in your first post above , you started with ” I agree ” – what were you agreeing to ?

  371. WOW! JJ – As you described yourself, it was like looking in a mirror. Everything you said applies to me. Hated book reports. My wife is always complaining I don’t talk enough. With my horrible hearing, I take a backseat when I am faced with two or more people. When I reply here, sometimes it takes me fifteen to twenty minutes of writing, proofing and hoping what I have written is coherent.

    Yes, I too await Larry, hoping he will get us through this next election. With all that is going on, I lose my way often.

  372. Richard,

    I also have a hearing problem, and tend to react in a similar manner. Consequently , I’ll miss parts of a conversation, sometimes the key points of a TV program – thereby often losing the story line . It’s almost akin to a ” dumbing down process ” , because I then fail to comprehend why certain events took place. Then of course it becomes somewhat frustrating and I’ll feel somewhat ‘stupid ‘ .. I probably don’t have to explain this to you !

    Face to face conversations present several problems. For example by not reacting as expected to a comment , folks think that you’re not interested, or not sufficiently intelligent. Some people tire of my asking them to repeat something. Hearing problems have a whole host of related drawbacks.

    Richard, thanks for your comments, since it was getting rather lonely on this site.

  373. DQ # 402 . . . Now that Trey Gowdy has been appointed as the chair of the Benghazi select committee, will we finally get to the truth , thereby holding OWEbaama, Hillary, et al , responsible for their actions , including the appropriate punishment ? ?

  374. DQ # 403 . . . Sheriff Joe Arpaio in AZ has been under attack by the DOJ , simply for doing as he calls it ” doing my job ” . What’s the latest on this situation ? ?

  375. DQ # 403 . . . Many in this coumtry voted for OWEbaama because they thought ” it’s time for a Black person to be POTUS “, although he is less than 1/2 Black. Some now want Hillary to run, because they believe that it’s time for a female POTUS . Here’s a thought – how about Dr. Ben Carson, who is actually a Black man, and perhaps for a running mate , Sarah Palin, who is all female. Would that help the above- mentioed goups ? ?

  376. DQ # 404 . . . Have you ever wondered what would happen if it were proven , beyond a shadow of a doubt, that OWEbaama is not a citizen , especially regarding the many things that would need to be reversed ? ?

  377. DQ # 405 . . . Owebaama is back on his Green Energy campaign,preaching to his usual “rah , rah ” base as he continues to create more ” Solyndra” type solar deals. Since he ‘s apparently not satisfied with the term Climate Change, will he now try for CLIMATE CONTROL , since he wants to CONTROL almost everything ? ?

  378. DQ # 406 . . . So., OWEbaama had solar panels installed at the WH, but he won’t disclose how many, or the cost. Is it because the project is FAR from being cost effective ? ?

  379. DQ # 407 . . . Since he is so enamored with solar, has OWEbaama installed solar panels on his mansion in Chicago , and is it the same old ” do as I say , NOT as I do ” ? ?

  380. DQ # 408 . . . There have been 3 “Progressive Parties” in the US ( 1912, 1924, and 1948 ) , and all were FAILURES. Therefore why do the Dems call themselves ” Progressive ” ? ?

  381. DQ # 409 . . . Originally, a ” Liberal ” was someone who favored smaller gov’t. , more freedoms, liberty, fewer regulations, etc. – basically what the current conservatives want. Therefore, why do the Dems now call themseves ” Liberals ” ? ?

  382. DQ $ 410 . . . It was the Republicans who were anti-slavery, and stopped slavery. Why do the Dems take credit for it ? ?

  383. DQ # 411 . . . OWEbaama has just completed his 1,000th flight on AFl . Someone has calculated that those trips costs the gov’t. approx. $467 million. Bear in mind that AFl does not fly alone – there is a decoy plane and 4 fighter jets, plus the chopper to get to and from the airport, plus a cargo plane , if needed for the vehicles. Can you now imagine what the REAL total is for all of his ” campaign ” trips to preach to his choir ? ?

  384. DQ # 412 . . . OWEbaama doesn’t seem to be concerned that 4 White American men were slaughtered in Benghazi, and that a White American border guard was slain as a result of ” Fast and Furious “. However, without the facts, he was quick to jump into the death of a Black youth, Travon Martin. And he is concerned about the kidnapping of Black Nigerian girls. Would this be considered some form of ” racism ” ? ?

  385. DQ # 413 . . . Supposedly as a result of Trey Gowdy being appointed as chair of the Benghazi select committee, OWEbaama has hired a top defense attorney. Would it be safe to say that certain paper shredders are working overtime ? ?

  386. DQ # 414 . . . WOW – apparently even ” Turbo Tax ” Timmy is now calling OWEbaama a ‘liar’ – what took him so long to see the facts ? ?

  387. DQ # 415 . . . The gov’t. has fined GM approx $32 million for it’s ignition switch fiasco. Will that money go to the victims , or to the gov’t. rat hole and be wasted as usual ? ?

  388. DQ # 416 . . . Apparently there are some gasoline retailers that sell non-ethanol, gasoline . However, isn’t there a gov’t. mandate that specifies a MINIMUM of 10 % ethanol ? ?

  389. DQ # 417 . . . Speaking of ethanol, the EPA has FINALLY admitted that burning 10 % ethanol gasoline causes more harm to the environment than burning straight gasoline ( something we’ve stated on this site for several years ) . Therefore, will the EPA reverse the ban, and if so, how many YEARS will it take to do so ? ?

  390. DQ #418 . . . Black Americans claim that they have been receiving sub-standard educations and are then not qualified to get responsible jobs. If true, then why did they vote for OWEbaama ? ?

  391. DQ # 419 . . . On the other hand, does it demonstrate the reason for their collective ( almost 95% ) votes for OWEbaama ? ?

  392. DQ # 420 . . . How soon will the phrase ” MADE IN THE USA ” disappear from products ? ?

  393. DQ # 421 . . . As a result of 40 Veterans dying while waiting for treatment at the VA , the MSM is finally on the story. However, has OWEbaama said or DONE anything yet ? ?

  394. DQ # 422 . . . As the number of scandals continue to mount, will the public ever call for OWEbaama’s resignation ? ?

  395. DQ # 423 . . . Also, as the problems continue at the WH , will ‘carnival’ Carney ever hold a legitimate press conference and give the WH press corps real and truthful information, along with actual ‘answers’ to the questions ? ?

  396. DQ # 424 . . . If there weren’t any more research grants given for the ‘climate change’ narrative , would that whole narrative simply disappear ? ?

  397. DQ # 425 . . . How many people are becoming wealthy due to the GLOBAL WARMING , and CLIMATE CHANGE narrative ? ?

  398. DQ # 426 . . . A privately owned pharmacy with 10 employees , some full time, and some part-time were insured thru OWEbaamascare. However, now the pharmacy cannot fill prescriptions for the owner, his family, or the employees ! Does this make any sense ? ?

  399. Here are some thought provoking questions probably already asked:
    Three simple thoughts for the day:

    1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge
    ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

    2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for”
    their money, but the second didn’t. Think about it…..

    3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

  400. Richard,

    Good points . The insanity, stupidity, and corruption in DC is incredible .

    Congress has ‘raided ‘ the Social Security fund several times – can you imagine what would happen if they ‘raided ‘ the welfare programs ?

    Let’s cut the benefits and salaries of Congress, along with federal workers who are paid approx 1.6 times more than the private sector.

    Speaking of stupidity, why do illegals get a single penny from us ?

  401. DQ # 427 . . . The gov’t. controlled VA health system has been failing for a long time – why would anyone believe that the gov’t. controlled OWEbaamascare will NOT also be a failure ? ?

  402. DQ # 428 . . . According to ‘carnival’ Carney , OWEbaama did not know about the VA problem until he read it in the newspaper. Perhaps that explains a lot about the WH . Can you believe this WH gang ? ?

  403. DQ # 429 . . . As more and more scandals are revealed, (not by the MSM ) and we are given either lies, or talking points as reasons for said scandals, how long will it take until something SERIOUS is done to stop this aberration ? ?

  404. DQ # 430 . . . Since it might propose reductions in the ethanol requirements, does the EPA finally understand that corn is a ‘food ‘ and that petroleum is a ” fuel ” ? ?

  405. DQ # 431 . . . Where is it written that only members of the two political parties are permitted to vote in the primary elections ? ?

  406. DQ # 432 . . . Now that the Benghazi Select Committee is in place, will there also be Select Committees for both the IRS and NSA scandals ? ?

  407. DQ #433 . . . Will Hillary be able to “dodge the bullet ” once the Benghazi Select Committee gets underway , even though four Americans could NOT dodge any bullets ? ?

  408. DQ # 434 . . . The US Senate has the ability to initiate impeachment of the POTUS . Is there any method to remove a Justice of the SCOTUS ? ?

  409. DQ # 435 . . . GM has been having problems , and has re-called over ONE BILLION vehicles . Is this due in part to the government’s control of GM ? ?

  410. DQ # 436 . . . Since Pelosi had a change of heart by deciding to name 5 Dems to the Benghazi Select Committee, will it now be turned into a ” three ring circus ” by the Dems ? ?

  411. DQ # 437 . . . On this Memorial Day, and with consideration for the ‘dumbing down’ that has been taking place , how many actually comprehend the significance of this day ? ?

  412. DQ # 438 . . . As ‘revisionist history ‘ progresses at an alarming rate, will the Declaration of Independence soon be forgotten ? ?

  413. Carrying things too far???

    I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

    Let’s ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians.

    If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

    The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60’s alive. Gone. It’s offensive to us white folk.

    The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men’s lives.

    I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

    Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!

    Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.

    The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.

    The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.

    The Milwaukee Brewers—well that goes without saying . . . Wrong message to our children.

    So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing congress loves . . .
    With all of this in mind, it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women’s athletic teams to something other than “the Beavers.”

What is happening” Since I am cynical when it come to Obama he is getting back at the red states to show the Republicsns he can do this if they don’t pass an amnesty bill for all the illegals. This is inhumane. I heard they were carrying all sorts of health problems, some contagious virus, scabbies, etc. and sending them all over the country to infect who ever they come in contact with.

    If there evers was a time for Larry to post his thoughts it is now. So much going on it makes your head spin!

  436. DQ # 457 . . . Does OWEbaama believe that only conservatives live in Phoenix , or does he not care about whomever gets hurt by his tactics ? ?

    Here is something worth thinking about:
    Colonel Phil “Hands” Handley is credited with the highest speed air-to-air gun kill in the history of aerial combat. He flew operationally for all but 11 months of a 26-year career, in aircraft such as the F-86 Sabre, F-15 Eagle, and the C-130A Hercules. Additionally, he flew 275 combat missions during two tours in Southeast Asia in the F-4D and F-4E. His awards include 21 Air Medals, 3 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Silver Star.

    Here is what Col. Handley wrote in response to Panetta and Dempsey’s claims there was no time to send help to Benghazi
    Betrayal in Benghazi
    Phil “Hands” Handley Colonel, USAF (Ret.)
    The combat code of the US Military is that we don’t abandon our dead or wounded on the battlefield. In US Air Force lingo, fighter pilots don’t run off and leave their wingmen. If one of our own is shot down, still alive and not yet in enemy captivity, we will either come to get him or die trying.

    Among America ‘s fighting forces, the calm, sure knowledge that such an irrevocable bond exists is priceless. Along with individual faith and personal grit, it is a sacred trust that has often sustained hope in the face of terribly long odds.

    The disgraceful abandonment of our Ambassador and those brave ex-SEAL’s who fought to their deaths to save others in that compound is nothing short of dereliction-of-duty.
    Additionally, the patently absurd cover-up scenario that was fabricated in the aftermath was an outright lie in an attempt to shield the President and the Secretary of State from responsibility.
    The White House strategy, with the aid of a “lap dog” press has been to run out the clock before the truth is forthcoming.

    The contention “that there were simply no military assets that could be brought to bear in time to make a difference” mainly due to the unavailability of tanker support for fighter aircraft is simply Bull Chit, regardless how many supposed “experts” the Administration trots out to make such an assertion.
    The bottom line is that even if the closest asset capable of response was half-way around the world, you don’t just sit on your penguin ass and do nothing.
    The fact is that the closest asset was not half-way around the world, but as near as Aviano Air Base, Italy where two squadrons of F-16Cs are based.
    Consider the following scenario (all times Benghazi local): When Hicks in Tripoli receives a call at 9:40 PMfrom Ambassador Stevens informing him “Greg, we are under attack!” (his last words). Hicks immediately notifies all agencies and prepares for the immediate initiation of an existing “Emergency Response Plan.”

    At AFRICON, General Carter Ham attempts to mount a rescue effort, but is told to “stand down”. By 10:30 PM an unarmed drone is overhead the compound and streaming live feed to various “Command and Control Agencies” so everyone watching that feed knew damn well what was going on.
    At 11:30 PM Woods, Doherty and five others leave Tripoli, arriving in Benghazi at 1:30 AM on Wednesdaymorning, where they hold off the attacking mob from the roof of the compound until they are killed by a mortar direct hit at 4:00 AM.

    So nothing could have been done, eh? Nonsense. If one assumes that tanker support really “was not available” what about this:
    When at 10:00 PM AFRICON alerts the 31st TFW Command Post in Aviano Air Base, Italy of the attack, the Wing Commander orders preparation for the launch of two F-16s and advises the Command Post at NAS Sigonella to prepare for hot pit refueling and quick turn of the jets.

    By 11:30 PM, two F-16Cs with drop tanks and each armed with five hundred 20 MM rounds are airborne. Flying at 0.92 mach they will cover the 522 nautical miles directly to NAS Sigonella in 1.08 hours. While in-route, the flight lead is informed of the tactical situation, rules of engagement, and radio frequencies to use.

    The jets depart Sigonella at 1:10 AM with full fuel load and cover the 377 nautical miles directly to Benghazi in 0.8 hours, arriving at 1:50 AM which would be 20 minutes after the arrival of Woods, Doherty and their team.

    Providing that the two F-16s initial pass over the mob, in full afterburner at 200 feet and 550 knots did not stop the attack in its tracks, a few well placed strafing runs on targets of opportunity would assuredly do the trick.

    Were the F-16s fuel state insufficient to return to Sigonelli after jettisoning their external drop tanks, they could easily do so at Tripoli International Airport , only one-half hour away.

    As for those hand-wringing naysayers who would worry about IFR clearances, border crossing authority, collateral damage, landing rights, political correctness and dozens of other reasons not to act — screw them. It is time our “leadership” get its priorities straight and put America ‘s interests first.

    The end result would be that Woods and Doherty would be alive. Dozens in the attacking rabble would be rendezvousing with “72 virgins” and a clear message would have been sent to the next worthless P.O.S. terrorist contemplating an attack on Americans that it is not really a good idea to “tug” on Superman’s cape.

    Of course all this depends upon a Commander In Chief more concerned with saving the lives of those he put in harm’s way than getting his crew rested for a campaign fund raising event in Las Vegas the next day. It also depends upon a Secretary of State who actually understood “What difference did it make?”, and a Secretary of Defense who was watching the feed from the drone and understood what the attack consisted of instead of making an immediate response that “One of the military tenants is that you don’t commit assets until you fully understand the tactical situation.”

    YGBSM!( You Gotta Be Chittin’ Me)
    Ultimately it comes down to the question of who gave that order to stand down? Whoever that coward turns out to be should be exposed, removed from office, and face criminal charges for dereliction of duty. The combat forces of the United States of America deserve leadership that really does “have their back” when the chips are down.


  441. Richard,

    Owebaama has been doing things to get back at Jan Brewer for some time, and this is merely one of those tactics. So, when it comes down to credibility , who do you believe – OWEbaama , Hillary, Pannetta, or Handley ? I’ll go with Handley.

  442. DQ # 460 . . . When the Bergdahl swap was announced, my first thought was – why is Qatar involved, and how much are they being paid ? ?

  443. DQ # 461 . . . Prisoners are swapped AFTER a war is ended. The war on terror is far from over. Therefore, how can there be a legitimate prisoner swap ? ?

  444. DQ # 462 . . . Many Americans were not aware ( thanks in part to the MSM and the WH ) that kids were being dumped at our southern border. Mofre importantly, how did so many poor, illiterate parents in Central America know that they could dump their kids, and how did they get them to the border , since they’re so poor ? ?

  445. Richard , thanks for that article. BTW , how are the grandkids doing ?

  446. Monica, how is Phoenix dealing with all of those dumped kids ? Also, how is Jan Brewer reacting ? One more thought – what is your Senator John Mc Cain doing/ saying about this dumping problem ?

  447. Here is an address to look at Normandy then and 70 years later:

    What often is forgotten, America rebuilt a goodly portion of Europe after the war they were dragged into.

    The grand kids are really getting to the lovable stage and are accepting teachings from us. We don’t have a heavy hand, just a loving one to teach them moral and social lessons.

    I also have wondered how these supposedly desperately poor peoplecould afford traveling so many miles to get to the border? I haven’t heard a peep from John McCain, so I wondered if he is part of this plague being inflicted on Arizona.

  448. Richard,
    Thanks. BTW, speaking of MC Cain – since the problems at the Phoenix VA were so serious, his office must have known something. If so, why didn’t he react a long time ago , especially being a former POW ? ! ?

  449. McCain has slid behind the scenes and seems to be avoiding addressing the immigration problem he is so flip flop on.

    I think the fall elections are starting to worry all incumbents, as well they should, following Eric Cantor’s defeat in the primary. That just might make people sit up and notice.

  450. Yes, and maybe they will finally realize that they work for ‘ we the people’ .. MAYBE ! !

  451. DQ # 463 . . . We’ve been hearing the term ‘ immigration reform’ for some time now – why not ENFORCE the laws that are already on the books ? ?

  452. DQ # 464 . . . As expected, the terrorists are taking over some cities in Iraq, now that we’re no longer there. Can you guess what will happen in Afghanistan when we’re gone ? ?

  453. DQ #465 . . . There is a regulated process that takes place for someone to be ‘deported ‘. Now, to make OWEbaama look like a strong border enforcer, whenever someone is simply turned-away at the border, this is listed as a ‘deportation’ ; therefore the WH claims that they have the highest number of deportations EVER . Will the MSM ever ‘wake-up’ and stop defending the Liar in Chief ? ?

  454. In a word, NO. The MSM is going to stand-by-their-dud until he falls, making them susceptible to being bought by the next guy! And it won’t be gal because ‘Commander In Chief’ has yet to break that bastion of gender equality. As many people have used b.o. as an example of someone not qualified because he never served, it will be used as a measure in future campaigns.

  455. DQ # 466 . . . If the MSM continues to prop-up OWEbaama, will he actually ever ‘fail ‘ ? ?

  456. Has anybody ever thought about how things are done? If we hire someone to work for us, we take the lowest bidder. If we hire someone to be our voice in Washington, we select the highest bidder. However, this did not hold true in Virginia!

  457. Okay. Her’s some fun to make you chuckle everytime you think about it!

    > I was driving through northern Illinois last night listening to a call-in
    > program on WGN in Chicago. People were calling in all upset about the

    > I almost ran off the road!

  458. And something to think about:
    Fourteen beautiful short stories worth reading:

    1. Fall and Rise
    Today, when I slipped on the wet tile floor a boy in a wheelchair caught me before I slammed my head on the ground. He said, “Believe it or not, that’s almost exactly how I injured my back 3 years ago .

    2. A father’s advice
    Today, my father told me, “Just go for it and give it a try! You don’t have to be a professional to build a successful product. Amateurs started Google and Apple. Professionals built the Titanic

    3. The power of uniqueness.
    Today, I asked my mentor – a very successful business man in his 70’s – what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiled and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.

    4. Looking Back
    Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.

    5. Try and U shall know
    I am blind by birth. When I was 8 years old, I wanted to play baseball. I asked my father- “Dad, can I play baseball?” He said “You’ll never know until you try.” When I was a teenager, I asked him, – “Dad Can I become a surgeon?”. He replied “Son, you’ll never know until you try.” Today I am a Surgeon, just because I tried!

    Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.”

    Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

    Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.

    Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”

    Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

    Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling. I chuckled and asked, “Why?” She replied, “So you can help me save the planet.” I chuckled again and asked, “And why do you want to save the planet?” “Because that’s where I keep all my stuff,” she said.

    12. JOY
    Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.

    13. KINDNESS
    Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”.

    14. SHARING
    Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.”

  459. Richard,

    Great stories – and a perfect example of how ” a few words can say so much ” ! Thanks.

  460. DQ # 467 . . . Regarding the kids that are dumped at the border,especially how they got there – apparently they were bussed over 1500 miles as part of an organized effort. And,it has been going on for some time. There are even comments that OWEbaama is involved – does that surprise anyone ? ?

  461. DQ # 468 . . . A former Marine , who was being treated for PTSD , took a wrong turn and ended up in a Mexican jail, where he has been for over TWO MONTHS . Is OWEbaama cutting a deal with Mexico to trade him for 30 million illegals to remain here ? ?

  462. DQ # 469 . . . Will OWEbaama EVER comprehend that his JOB is in the Oval Office, NOT on the champaign trail, where he goes preaching to his rah rah base. ? ?

  463. DQ # 470 . . . Since the total cost of labor ( wages, benefits, employer taxes, etc. ) is a major expense item for most companies, it is understandable why outsourcing is done to take advantage of cheap labor. OWEbaama claims that he wants to ” create jobs ” . However, since we are LOSING jobs for cheap foreign labor, EXACTLY how does RAISING the minimum wage help to create jobs ? ?

  464. DQ #471 . . . The IRS, possibly one of the most feared federal agencies, is contemplating hiring outside collection agencies to collect over $5 billion in back taxes. What does that tell you about our overpaid federal paycheck receivers ? ?

  465. It means IRS needs to be axed and a new system installed. Not in my lifetime!

  466. Look what the Liberals are up in arms about in N.C.:

    State House lawmakers previously had cut funds from two public universities in retaliation for required-reading material containing homosexual themes. A revised budget passed by both the House and the Senate earlier this month, though, restored the money — but dictated that exact amount be spent “for instruction in the provisions and principles of the United States Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Federalist Papers, including the study of and devotion to American institutions and ideals.”

    Really? Is this a sign or just a dream?

  467. Whoops! That is South Carolina. Sorry!

  468. Richard,

    Being in the Bible Belt might be part of the answer. And, yes it is a step in the right direction.

  469. DQ # 472 . . . The IRS just told Congress that it ‘ lost ‘ 2 yrs of Lois Loerner’s e-mails . Do they really expect Congress to accept that BS ? ?

  470. DQ # 473 . . . Josh Earnest, Carney’s replacement, said that it is a ‘fact’ that Lois Loerner’s e-mails are gone. Does he believe that because his name is Earnest, that we should accept whatever he says is said in ‘earnest ‘ ? ?

  471. DQ # 474 . . . If Common Core Standards is such a great program, then why must OWEbaama ‘bribe’ the school districts with $4.1 billion in grants ??

  472. DQ # 475 . . . We spent $4 billion to build an embassy in Baghdad, an unstable area. Why ? ?

  473. DQ # 476 . . . Why do the ‘real’ journalists even bother to attend the so-called WH press briefings ? ?

  474. Oxymoron of the day – WH Press Briefing

  475. DQ # 477 . . . How many more lies , and how many more disasters must OWEbaama create before an impeachment process begins ? ?

  476. And you assume there are still some ‘real’ journalists, why? Zippy will proceed at break-neck speed throwing out the lies and skating over disasters until Congress grows a pair – which ain’t likely at this point unless we vote in many pairs.

  477. The IRS is saying they ‘lost’ some data from three years ago. Correct me if I am wrong, but don’t CPA’s and tax attorney’s tell us to keep our records for up to seven (7) years in case we are audited? My sister is a CPA and I have an accounting degree – so, yeah! Another shining example of the government saying “Do as I say, not as I do”!

  478. Here is another opinion of OWEbama:

    The below summary of Barack and Michelle Obama’s 5 year reign in the White House is by far the best I’ve ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head.
    And it took a black reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man’s account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obama’s is penned by a well known journalist of color?

    (Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles .)

    The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s. Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

    The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

    I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America . They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

    I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President, and a love of our country and her citizens, from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish.

    His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

    Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies,dishonesty, deceit, mendacity,subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

    I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America . I view that statement and that Mind set as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

    Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do that. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

    And what the two of them have shared has been proven to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address.

    He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel .

    His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

    I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

    Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

    I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

    As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader.

    He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic,contumacious arrogance is unequaled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.

    Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America ‘s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.

  479. There are IMO a few ‘real’ journalists. however they are controlled by their employers.

    Regarding the ‘missing ‘ info. at the IRS , isn’t it convenient that only the hard drives of those being investigated are no longer available ? Does anybody with half of a brain accept that BS ?

    Have not heard about Massie. Do you suppose the IRS will do an audit ?

  480. This is so well written. And God’s pure truth. Thanks for sharing.

  481. DQ # 478 . . . Regarding the IRS scandal, once questions were starting to be asked, the company that was providing the backups was suddenly and unexpectedly ‘fired’ by the IRS . Are we supposed to accept this as just another “coincidence ” ? ?

  482. DQ # 479 . . . Chinese manufacturers are investing more and more in the US . Last year alone, they invested $14 billion , and collectively they employ more than 70,000 Americans . And to entice more Chinese investment, some states are offering all sorts of incentives, such as tax breaks, grants, etc. WHY are the Chinese getting the deals, and not US companies ? ?

  483. DQ # 480 . . . And, when the Chinese invest heavily in one US state, and employ millions there, will they eventually be able to control the politics and the economy in that state ? ?

  484. These last two questions are what I have been asking (and answering) for a long time. Why do we want China or any other nation get such a foothold in America? And who is ‘giving’ them any incentive what so ever? If you ask me, they should be paying a premium to get our clean raw materials and skilled labor!

  485. The Chinese are basically in the southern states, where the unemployment rate is usually high, and the labor rates are low . BTW , they are also buying golf courses !!

  486. DQ 481 . . . With the massive influx of illegal kids from central America, which is due to OWEbaama’s policy, has he said anything about this problem ? ?

  487. DQ # 482 . . . So, Joe Biden is going to the Central American countries to try to convince them that they should not be sending their kids here, and that we’ll be providing hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to those countries. Does anyone believe that will work ? ?

  488. DQ # 483 . . . The Founding Fathers envisioned a representative form of gov’t. , not only by population and location, but also by occupation. This would be a true representation or cross section of the citizens. However what we have now is primarily lawyers – is it any wonder why we have problems ? ?

  489. Oxymoron moron of the day . . . . ” Public Service “

  490. DQ # 484 . . . Will the politicians EVER comprehend that they are supposed to work for us ? ?

  491. DQ # 485 . . . How many more LIES and SCANDALS must come from this administration , especially from OWEbaama , before the MSM ‘gets it ‘ ? ?

  492. DQ #486 . . . OWEbaama claims that these are ” all PHONY scandals ” . Did you notice that he is not actually denying that they are scandals, but is actually classifying them as a certain TYPE of scandal ? ?

  493. DQ # 487 . . . So, the SCOTUS rebukes OWEbaama’s recess appointments. Does that mean that he’ll rescind the appointments ? ?

  494. DQ # 487 . . . There are an average of two cars for every household in the US .
    Therefore one would expect to find many yellow pages in the phone directory regarding everything related to the ‘automobile’ , such as parts, repairs, new, used, paint, etc., etc. On the other hand, we very seldom have a need for a lawyer. If you count the total number of yellow pages dedicated to all things ” automobile ” and then count the total number of pages for “attorneys “, what would you expect to find . . . and if you did the count, what conclusion have you drawn ? ?

  495. DQ # 488 . . . OWEbaama is responsible for the influx of illegal kids at the border. Now, he said that HE can’t wait for Congress to fix the problem, therefore HE will by-pass Congress and do it himself , and he only wants $ 2 billion to to do it ! Is it too late for him to receive psychiatric help, or would impeachment be the best solution ? ?

  496. DQ $ 489 . . . The US corporate tax rate is 39 % , while the average of the other major industrial nations is 29% . It’s one reason why many companies keep their cash off-shore. Plus, we are losing millions of jobs due to outsourcing, which of course is a savings to US corporations . So, if the District of Corruption really wants to create jobs, why not LOWER this tax rate ? ?

  497. Happy Independence Day ! Unfortunately far too many in this country think that this is merely” July 4th ” or Picnic Day , or Fireworks Day !

    Before revisionist historians totally destroy our heritage, should we start to refer to this day in only one way – INDEPENDENCE DAY , instead of the meaningless July 4th monicker ? ? Just a thought !

  498. And a most correct thought and we should all try and update our oral capabilities. In other words. we need to speak out, loud and clear.

  499. Richard,

    I always appreciate your thoughts – thank you. Unfortunately, it appears that you and I are the lone survivors on this site ! I’m willing to ‘hang in there ‘ , are you ?

  500. DQ # 490 . . . There is a crisis at the border, and OWEbaama is going to Texas, not to the border, but to a FUND RAISER . Therefore, isn’t it rather obvious that he is playing politics, and wants the border influx of kids to continue, even though it is inhumane to dump theses kids into terrible conditions at the holding centers ? ?

  501. Read and judge for yourself.

    This is sobering. Thought provoking for sure. Unfortunately, there are a couple of people who block important messages out of their mind. Many of us will not live long enough to see the devastating results… but our grandchildren will! How sad!!!!!

All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a happier ending for most of America?

    Don’t just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. We all need to pull together or watch the demise of a free democratic society. we need to seek the truth and take action for it will keep us FREE. Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea or Iran. Our biggest enemy is our complacent selves. The government will not help, so we need to do it ourselves.

    And watch out, Hillary Clinton is no different!

    It’s your decision. Does IT matter?…..AND WHEN.

  502. Still here. Too bad we can’t change the title from Merry Christmas to Happy Independence Day!

  503. Richard,
    Great list – thanks. I would like to read that list to a Liberal , and ask them to justify OWEbaama’s actions . Can you imagine the nonsense they would use to defend their boy ?
    Regarding Independence Day, I agree – perhaps it would remind more folks what this country is all about and what it stands of, which is certainly not what is happening these days .

    I wonder if Larry ever takes a moment to check out this site ! 🙂

  504. This response certainly is not going to be popular, but I think we have too many flippin’ holidays and moving everything to Friday for a long weekend is killing American “How To” or Do It” because we don’t have to think about scheduling and doing our own thing. We are supposed to be conserving our resources, yet we intentionally make a three day weekend in which we are gone a lot more days than a Holiday on the day of the event, and we don’t even think about what the holiday is, it’s just an extra day of weekend to hit the roads, the beach, the party and spend more gas, money and brain cells. People don’t even know which Presidents Birthdays’ we celebrate in February, let alone know the day. Armed Forces Day? Memorial Day?

    I keep Larry in my prayers hoping everything is okay.

  505. Richard,

    A response doesn’t have to be popular – just honest ! Yes, the real meaning of some holidays is lost for many folks, as per my original comment on Independence day. Non-theless, I understand the reasons for the 3 day holiday approach. And, many smaller communities really do a great job on celebrating many holidays in very patriotic manner.

    Only three men have holidays with their name : Christ ( both his birth and resurrection ) , Columbus, and M.L.King ,Jr. . Is King really more important than either Washington or Lincoln ? Technically, what was more important – Lincoln abolishing slavery, or ‘affirmation action’ as espoused by King ? Yet, Lincoln becomes a ‘no name ‘ ? And, can King compare in any manner to the achievements of Washington , who also becomes a no-name ?

    And, the way this country is deteriorating, will Christ soon become a ‘no-name ‘ ? Just a few thoughts !!

  506. DQ# 491 . . . The Bill Clinton Foundation , on the surface, appears to be a noble cause. However, it is reported that Bill has spent over $50 million of the foundation money by flying around in a private jet that is capable of mach speed, and has a range of 7,000 miles. Is that type of perk really prudent ? Also, Hillary donates the profits from her book sales and speaking engagements to the foundation in order to get a huge tax write-off. Apparently donating Bill’s used underwear to charity wasn’t a large enough write-off !!

    How sweet is that ? ?

  507. Oxymoron of the day – ” Deportation Hearing “

  508. My above Oxymoron has generated the following message ” Your comment is awaiting moderation ” . Exactly WHO is going to moderate the comment , and WHY ?

  509. DQ # 492 . . . Apparently the easiest way for an illegal alienl to enter, and also stay in the US is for them to state that they will register as a Democrat. Will OWEbaama clear out Gitmo by allowing the detainees to make the same claim ? ?

  510. Oxymoron of the day – “Deportation Hearings “

  511. DQ # 493 . . . With all of the millions of recalls that GM has been having in recent months, and remembering that the gov’t. took over GM during part of the time that these problems occurred , will the gov’t. therefore hold itself responsible for part of the blame ? ?

  512. DQ #494 . . . With all of the hi-tech spying, data collection, surveillance, etc. that is in place, and considering that Mexico’s southern border is extremely secure, then how does the WH explain how so many busloads of illegal kids can just ‘happen’ come here from Central America ? ?

  513. DQ # 495 . . . Supposedly, back in March or April, the gov’t. had put out bids from transportation companies to move large amounts of people in areas near our southern border. Doesn’t this sound a little suspicious ??

  514. DQ # 496 . . . Holder is now playing the ‘race’ card. Isn’t this a sign that the OWEbaama policies are failing ? ?

  515. DQ # 497 . . . Latinos that became legal naturalized US citizens are generally not in favor of the illegal aliens that are sneaking into the US . However, the illegals that are here want more illegals to come here. WHY ? ?

  516. DQ # 498 . . . Recently I had asked why one of my posts was being held for ‘moderation’ , especially since the post was not offensive in any manner ( my comments are not offensive, and have not been removed in past years ). That post and the simple question were removed from this site ! Has anyone else had the same experience ? ?

  517. DQ # 499 . . . Starting with DQ #495, my name is now shown in blue letters. I didn’t change anything – so why the blue letters ? ?

  518. It seems you have a mind like a steel trap, as my dad was always saying. (He also like to say “If he stepped over a penny his — would snap.”) I really enjoy your posts and the many thought provoking questions you pose. I am wondering if your name being in blue shows some updating to Word Press. Regarding question 497, really shows how screwed up our immigration problem has become. I read questions the other day saying: “If a country has no closed border, is it a country?” That thought stays with me every day and really frustrates me because of all the idiots in the swamp just don’t get it! So far, I have no excitement regarding possible candidates as Zippy’s replacement. If we choose wrong, the USA as we know it will be forever lost. Scary scenario, to say the least.

  519. My previous posting was also a test to see if my name was high-lighted, but evidently you are special!

  520. Snap! I keep forgetting to mention, if this “Christmas” entry were printed, it would take 92 sheets of paper! Wow! We need a new title.

  521. Richard,

    Thanks for the kind words. But,no I’m not special, just trying to keep this site alive.
    I can understand that the Libs appeal to the masses by promising bennies and freebies . However , if they have an IQ above room temp, they must realize that there is a LIMIT to our national debt and the wasteful spending must stop. Our border situation is a disaster and no one in DC seems to care.
    Can you imagine Hillary & Bill back in the WH ? Maybe her strategy might be ” what difference does it make if the National Debt goes higher and higher ” .
    Yes, this thread is too long – wish Larry would just come on and simply say “Hi” , then it would start a new thread.

  522. Well, as can been seen – the blue continues , and I’m baffled.

  523. Richard, ‘

    Between # 491 and # 492 are the 2 comments that I had made regarding moderation . They have not been there for a few days – what is going on ?

    Is the blue a flag for moderation ? Any ideas ?

  524. DQ # 500 . . . Dingy Harry stated that “the border is secure” . Other than the ‘stupid voters’ , who else believes him ? ?

  525. DQ # 501 . . . How long does it take for a comment to be ” moderated ” ? ?

  526. Apparently the blue is flag to moderate, or monitor, or censor my comments.
    None of my posts from today are shown. This one is a ‘test’ to determine if this post will show up.

  527. I wish someone else would post something simple like ” test ! ” to see if they get monitored.

  528. Am simply going to type JJ to see if it the letters turn blue .

  529. So much for that idea 🙂

  530. If there is a moderator on this site, he/she should be bored to death, due to the inactivity here 🙂 Just a little thought for today ( so far ! )

  531. DQ # 504 . . . Numbers 500 thru 504 have disappeared or were ‘moderated’ ! If given the choice between going to a ‘fund raiser’ or to the border to handle a crisis, what choice would the fraud in the WH make, and how many ‘seconds, not minutes ‘ would it take for him to make that decision ? ?

  532. DQ # 505 . . . Why do we need the FBI , and the CIA , if the current resident in the WH depends on a newspaper for information ? ?

  533. DQ # 506 . . . Now that an airliner has been blown out of the sky, will the civilized countries ever get together and collectively STOP this terrorism nonsense , or must we wait until two or three more are blown away before something is done ? ?

  534. JJ, Did you get a letter from the IRS yet? We saw America, the movie by Dinesh D’Souza and I wish it would be required watching in every high school in the country. Never happen. Too much truth.

  535. Monica,

    Did not get a letter yet, should I be expecting one ? Did not see the movie. Any idea as to why my name appears in blue ? Also, would posing simple questions be problematic for this WH ? Thanks for the comments.

  536. You are on the “blue” list. First flag. No.
    But I have a question. Have you noticed that many government depts. have incompetent employees working in them? Or is it they just don’t care anymore. Now the CDC lost some vial with deadly virus’ in them. It seems every week we hear of another problem. I think that after years of being taught by the liberals in our schools kids haven’t learned the ethics of hard work and responsibility. Especially in government work. Big paychecks for little effort.

  537. JJ- Your name is the only one in blue. I hope this isn’t a repeat, but you gotta admit, ’tis the truth.

  538. Sorry! I had to sign in today. Look whose name is in blue now!

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots

    Jeff Foxworthy:

    If plastic water bottles are okay, but plastic bags are banned, you might live in a nation (state) that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots WE DO LIVE IN SUCH A DUMB COUNTRY!!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is cute, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you more safe according to the government, you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

  539. SEMPER-FI

    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.

    Written by a USMC Vet. (I can’t argue with any of it. Passing it along as it was received.)

    He wrote:
    The American Dream ended (on November 6th, 2012) in Ohio.
    The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

    A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Environmental Extremists, the Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.

    The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the back yard.
    The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.

    Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own
    home states and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a
    glowing “post Sandy” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status.
    Aside: With the way the polls were run and voter fraud, he didn’t need any help!

    People like us are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

    You will never again out-vote these people.
    It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed the Progressives to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

    Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt”, political correctness, and having a “TAKER” attitude…

    An American Veteran………………….. Semper-Fi

    Got the guts to pass it on? This is what it takes to get this country back to being a great nation, as this once was.

    If you don’t, in my opinion, you are one of the problems of destroying this country.

    “When the People fear the Government, there is tyranny,
    When the Government fears the people, there is Liberty…”

  540. Monica,

    “Government Employee” is one of my Oxymorons of the Day. They are actually ” paycheck receivers” and, being incompetent appears to be a requirement to become a ‘paycheck receiver “. Of course they don’t care – and why should they? They get 1.67 times what the private sector makes, and their benefits are about double the private sector. And here is the “icing on the cake ” – they don’t get FIRED !!

    The dumbing down process has been going on for many years, and it has been very successful. Can you imagine what will happen when Common Core goes full blown ?

    BTW , since Richard’s name is now in blue , you might be next – are you prepared for that possibility ? ? 🙂

  541. Richard,

    As usual, good stuff – thanks ! And, welcome to the Blue Club !!

  542. DQ # 507 . . . My DQ # 506, dated July 19th is still “awaiting moderation”.

    How long should it take for the ” moderation” process to be completed ? ?

  543. My posts are being ” moderated “. How soon will the IRS audit notification hit my mailbox ?

  544. DQ # 510 . . . Is it possible that the NSA is involved in these so-called ” moderations ” ? ?

  545. Good Morning moderator, I hope you enjoy eliminating my posts ! Nonetheless, I WILL CONTINUE SENDING THEM . Have a good day !!

  546. DQ # 511 . . . We have the highest corporate tax rate in the world; consequently, many companies have been stashing cash off-shore for years.
    This of course stymies job growth here. Along the same lines, England has reduced it’s corporate tax rate, and business is booming.

    Do you think that OWEbaama and the Dems could possibly comprehend that concept and then LOWER the rate ? ?

  547. DQ # 512 . . . The cost of labor is usually a major expense item for most companies, and is another reason that many companies outsource jobs, and/or resort to lay-offs , or job eliminations.

    OWEbaama CLAIMS that he wants to create jobs. However, he wants to increase wages. Therefore, how will increasing the cost of labor increase job creation ? ?

  548. DQ # 512 . . . OWEbaama wants to continue to grant amnesty to the thousands of illegal, uneducated, poor, probably abused kids ,some with serious health issues , that are flooding our border; and he claims that we ” should not eliminate the best and the brightest ” from entering the US . Does he really believe that these kids are the ” best and the brightest ” ? ?

  549. DQ # 514 . . . t has been estimated that members of Congress spend about 1/2 of their time campaigning for re-election. If true, why don’t we cut their salary and benefits in half ? ?

  550. DQ #515 . . . Since Dingy Harry won’t allow any bills to be brought up for a vote, what are the members of the Senate doing to DESERVE a paycheck ? ?

  551. DQ # 516 . . . With all of the border issues, multiple scandals, plus the problems affecting the US in other countries, is this the best time for the POTUS, and the Congress to take a VACATION ? ?

  552. DQ # 517 . . . The gov’t. is dumping the illegal kids , without notifying the various communities where this kids will be dumped, into places that are already struggling to maintain their communities. Is this another example of OWEbaama’s imperialism ? ?

  553. DQ # 518 . . . WOW – I’ve had TWO whole days without having any posts ‘moderated’ , or eliminated ! Has anyone else had any problems ? ?

  554. DQ # 519 . . . Not only does OWEbaama want to keep the illegal kids from Central American here, he also wants to build facilities to house them, in spite of the fact that there are already thousands of empty buildings available now. Is this another one of his ideas for ‘job creation ‘ ? ?

  555. DQ # 520 . . . 50 % of the illegals already in this country, are on the dole. That’s right – 50 % ! And, OWEbaama wants to add more to that number, even though we are $18 trillion in debt. How does he expect to pay for all of this – by taxing the rich ? ?

  556. DQ # 521 . . . When will the Congress do it’s job, and sue the current resident in the WH for his lawless actions and defiance of our Constitution ? ?

  557. DQ # 522 , , , Thousands of illegals have entered the US during the terms of the past few presidents. However, according to at least one Liberal group, the record for OWEbaama is . . net ZERO ! Yep. ZERO . For example, if 100,000 enter the US , but 100,000 are turned away . then the result is ( you guessed it ) net zero . And , those turned away are considered ” deported “. Threfore , OWEbaama has ‘deported’ MORE illegals than any other POTUS ! ! It’s just more lies and phoney stats , just like the LOW unemployment rate. Do you know just how many people actually believe this BS ? ?

  558. Richard,

    Once again, my posts are being ‘moderated ‘ , and I’ve been booted from the Blue Club ! Do you think you’ll be booted soon ? ?

  559. A few more of my posts have been eliminated, and I’m no longer in the Blue Club. I have no idea as to what is happening to this site. Has anyone else experienced any problems ? ? Looks as though Richard is the sole member of the Blue Club ! 🙂

  560. DQ # 525 . . . Does anyone really believe that the sudden influx of illegals was NOT orchestrated by the WH ? ?

  561. DQ # 526 . . . How many jobs has OWEbaama created to take care of the almost 100,000 illegal kids that he has ‘invited’ into the US ? ?

  562. So far I have had no problems. I believe Obaama would do anything and everything to get his way, like a spoiled child, but I think he is a “Manchurian Candidate” puppet controlled by individuals, mobs and/or others concentrating on destroying the USA. I for one have total revulsion each and every time I see him on TV or printed matter or even caricatures of him. I have never in my life felt such disgust for anyone. Immigration is tearing the states apart and creating hostile demonstrations. So far it is in the bigger cities and states, but like a plague, it will certainly spread to Middle America. Sadly, there are actually too many crises right now that need immediate action. America should have impeached him in his first term so he not only did not get a second term, but Biden being the second in command impels us to embrace the devil we know – – YUK! I seem to be getting more negative the closer we get to the Mid-Terms. Our state has a so called Conservative running for Congress, but every time she opens her mouth she talks about herself more than issues. I have a very negative feeling about her, so will not vote for her. I’m afraid our situation may be playing out in other states as well.

  563. Richard,

    Good points. However,as we know, impeachment does not guarantee removal from office – but it’s a start .

    The Dems appeal to the low information crowd, especially those on the dole, by promising them more bennies. And, with each benefit, the gov’t . gains more control of their lives. It’s similar to the dictator’s tactics – keep the people ‘poor and stupid ‘. Why do you think that civics has not been taught for many years? The less that people know about how the gov’t. is supposed to function, the easier it is for the gov’t. to gain more control of people’s lives. The dumbing -down process is working as planned.

    On a side note, check out the Common Core math examples if you want to see another version of ” new math ” that will probably make your head spin !

  564. DQ # 530 . . . It seems that most countries that have had some form of internal strife were usually in a North vs. South orientation . For example our own Civil War, Korea, Vietnam, and Ireland. Germany was East vs. West . How many other countries were East vs. West ? ?

  565. Wonder if I’ll ever be back in the Blue Club !

  566. DQ # 531 . . . Will the District of Corruption ever return to the status of District of Co-operation ? ?

  567. DQ # 532 . . . Haven’t heard anything about Benghazi for some time now. Is it almost forgotten, and will the IRS scandal also fade away in a similar fashion ? ?

  568. DQ # 533 . . . When is OWEbaama going to stop pandering to his Liberal base, and start doing what is proper for the whole country ? ?

  569. JJ, Benghazi is over. On my local radio today the host said two government depts. looking into the case found there was nothing to see there. No stand down orders were given. So Trey Gowdy may as well pack up his brief case and move on. In my cynical mind The first thing I thought of was Hillary and Bill got to someone in the state dept. Who was paid off with with a promotion or promise of a big job when Hill is Prez? I’m not buying it. And I heard a loot of news in the last few days and have not heard a anything about Benghazi. Curious.

  570. Monica,

    This WH seems to be rather fortunate in having the various scandals removed from the front pages due to other major happens. Nonetheless, the media should at least make some attempt to keep the ‘old’ news in the news.
    When it comes to Billary, NOTHING surprises me anymore. As I’ve said several times on this site – the Clintons keep coming back, and back, and back,and . . . .

    Thanks for your comments, and do you think you’ll ever make the Blue Team ?

  571. DQ # 534 . . . The US Attorney General is supposed to be non-political, but with Holder this is clearly NOT happening. Why is he still in office ? ?

  572. DQ # 535 . . . Owebaama repeatedly has claimed that WASHINGTON is ‘broken’ , and that Congress is not doing it’s job. Many in Congress have also claimed that DC is broken. And, since all of the above are basically responsible for the problems, and if they are not doing their jobs to correct the problem, then why are they still in office ? ?

  573. DQ # 536 . . . If you were too ask OWEbama the following question : what is more important – doing your job as POTUS , or going on vacation . What do you think his response would be ? ?

  574. DQ # 537. . . If I told a friend that I won $100 in a lottery, I’d get a congrats. But, if I then disclosed that I bought $200 worth of tix, – I’d get ” you fool ! ”

    The WH claims 10million new jobs – what it does not disclose is the fact that over 11.4 million dropped out of the workforce . And, 7.5 million were involuntarily reduced from full-time to part-time status. And , BTW 92 million are no longer working or looking for work. in spite of these facts, OWEbaama claims that the economy is growing.

    The WH claims the economy grew $1.1 trillion the past 5 yrs.
    However , the Fed pumped over $2 trillion into it during he same period.

    In addition, the National Debt is growing faster than one can count.

    Why should anyone believe ANYTHING that comes out of the WH ? ?

  575. DQ # 538 . . . Once again, the WH scandals catch a break with the death of Robin Williams grabbing the headlines. Will justice ever be achieved regarding all of the scandals ? ?

  576. DQ # 539 . . . After bragging how he fulfilled his promises to get us out of Iraq, and claiming victory – OWEbaama now says that” getting out ” was NOT his decision ! Isn’t this similar to his promises of ” if you like your doctor . . . . . ” ? ?

  577. DQ # 540 . . The situation in Iraq is becoming more dire with each passing day. Apparently both OWEbaama and the Congress believe the best thing to do now is . . . . . to go on VACATION ! Is this considered as leadership ? ?

  578. DQ # 541 . . . Another item that has ‘disappeared ‘ from the limelight is OWEbaamascare. The WH won’t discuss it for several reasons : paid enrollments are way down. For example , the nation’s third largest health insurer, Aetna, expects a 30 % decrease in paid enrollments from the May sign-up until the end of the year. Other insurers are also experiencing large decreases. On Jan 1st, when the rest of the hidden taxes take effect, the average taxpayer will be paying an ADDITIONAL $6,000 per year in new taxes !

    The state exchanges are also seeing decreases in paid enrollments.

    The average deductible, or out of pocket , is approx. $6,000.

    And, due to OWEbaamascare, more people will be WITHOUT health coverage.

    Why can’t the Liberals admit that OWEbaamascare is a complete DISASTER ? ?

  579. DQ # 542 . . . Also, OWEbaamascare will add about $ 1 Trillion to the National Debt. Will Pelosi be proud of that totally absurd expense ??

  580. DQ #543 . . . When the unemployment figs are down, the WH can’t wait to tout that ‘number ‘ . Today, the number of jobless claims is 311,000 – do you expect the WH to mention that ‘number ‘ ? ?

  581. DQ #543 . . . If you criticize OWEbaama, you will probably be called a racist by the Dems. If you criticize the WH , you will probably also be called a racist by the Dems. What will you be called if you criticize the Dems ? ?

  582. DQ # 544 . . . When the rest of the OWEbaamascare Employer Mandate kicks in on Jan. 1st, the Labor Unions will take a BIG hit, because insurance premiums will skyrocket, and because the unions were pro-OWEbaamascare.

    At that point, how many union workers will want to opt-out of their union ? ?

  583. DQ # 545 . . . It took about a month for the FBI to go to Benghazi to ” investigate” the slaying of our ambassador. It took only a few hours for OWEbaama to send 50 FBI agents to Ferguson, MO to look into the Michael ” gentle giant ” Brown case. Did these agents get there BEFORE or AFTER Je$$ie and $harpton ? ?

  584. DQ # 546 . . . With all that is going on the world, OWEbaama is really right on top of everything, in fact he even has a” battle cry ” , namely . . . FORE !
    Considering all that he has done, and what he has FAILED to do , is this basically ‘par’ for the course ? ?

  585. DQ #547 . . . Does anyone ever actually put a pair of gloves in the glove compartment of their vehicle ? ?

  586. DQ # 548 . . . Other than Dems, many White folks voted for OWEbaama because they thought it would ease racial tensions. However, isn’t OWEbaama now in the same boat as Holder, Je$$ie and $harpton ? ?

  587. DQ # 549 . . . Allthough he has failed as POTUS, and has low approval ratings, some still maintain that we should be less critical of OWEbaama, because afterall, isn’t this his FIRST job ? ?

  588. DQ # 550 . . . One of my posts was removed. If the so-called moderator has a problem with something I’ve said, I would ask that he / she would at least have the courtesy to send me an e-mail describing what was (in their opinion ) unsuitable for publication . Is that too much to ask ? ?

  589. Although he has failed as POTUS , and has low approval ratings, some still maintain that we should be less critical of OWEbaama, because afterall, isn’t this his FIRST job ? ?

  590. Will this also await moderation ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

  591. DQ # 551 . . . What is the definition of ” moderation” , as it applies to this site ? ?

  592. DQ # 551 . . . Although he has failed as the POTUS, and has a low approval rating, some say that he should not be criticized. Is it because this is is FIRST job ? ?

  593. note : should read – ‘his’ FIRST job. 🙂

  594. One third of work -eligible citizens are NOT working. Add to that those that are disabled, and elderly, and we end up with a whole bunch of people to support. So, those of us who are working have a right to celebrate this holiday with a day off, because on Tues we’ll be back working to feed,clothe, house, and educate a whole bunch of people, including illegals.

  595. DQ # 552 . . . Will we ever have a ” REAL ” POTUS , and if so , when will it happen ? ?

  596. DQ# 553 . . . Since most occupations require a certain amount of qualification, why don’t we have qualifications for the POTUS , other than age and citizenship ? ?

  597. DQ # 554 . . . Bret Baier’s interview with three of the Benghazi survivors might cause a little problem for Hillary and OWEbaama. Will this new info. put an end to Hillary’s bid for the WH ? ?

  598. Monica,

    Regarding your comments about Benghazi on 8/8/14 , the book ” 13 hours in Benghazi ” should put the Benghazi massacre back in the news. See DQ # 554 .

  599. JJ, I watched the Fox special with Bret Baier on the Benghazi scandal. The three men who were at the site on 9/11 were very believeable. The problem is this administration will try to run out the clock on this and all the scandals until Obama is out of office. That bunch is probably using tax payer money to shut up all the people who know the truth and we won’t get the truth until they all write books in two years.

  600. Monica,

    And, these 3 guys are putting themselves at great risk by speaking out . Yes, the WH plan is usually to run out the clock. But, I don’t think it will work this time. We need to know who gave the “stand down ” order – it might go all the way to Hillary, and hopefully to Owebaama ! Plus, there might be more survivors who will be willing to speak out.

    Thanks for hanging in here ! 🙂

  601. What in THE H E Double toothpick is Congress and the White House think they are doing getting involved in the NFL/Ray Rice problem???? They have many, many more critical things to deal with; loss or our sovereignty or welfare over paying too much. Someone needs to black some eyes when they stray!..

  602. What in THE H E Double toothpick is Congress and the White House think they are doing getting involved in the NFL/Ray Rice problem???? They have many, many more critical things to deal with; loss or our sovereignty or welfare over-paying,. Someone needs to black some eyes when they stray!..

  603. Richard,

    Simple answer ( as far as the WH is concerned ) – r a c e .
    Remember : Travon Martin, and the Ferguson , MO. shootings .

    The NFL , from the owners, and the commissioner, down to most of the coaches , the folks are primarily caucasion. Also,it’s also another DISTRACTION from all of the WH and gov’t. scandals that we have seen over the past few years. The WH seems to have an affinity for taking advantage of even the smallest of distractions !

    BTW, good to hear from you – hope all has been well. And, thanks for hanging in there .

  604. Regarding DQ # 545 , will we ever be told the results of the investigation by the 50 FBI agents in Ferguson , MO ? My guess . . . NO !

  605. DQ # 555 . . . OWEbaama has said that he is a Christian, but he also said he was a Muslim. And, although he has been caught lying on serious issues, the Dems , for the most part , still remain faithful to him . So, do they believe that he is both Christian and Muslim.or are they accepting another lie ? ?

  606. DQ # 556 . . . Today, the major terrorist organization is called , by almost everyone, – ISIS . However , OWEbaama and his WH will use the term ISIL . Do you know why they refuse to say ISIL ? ?

  607. note – last sentence should end in ISIS !

  608. DQ # 557 . . . One of these days, hopefully, I will learn how to TYPE . Speaking of typing, at first glance,there are some combinations of letters that at first glance appear to be just one letter, for example , the lower case ” r ” followed by the lower case ” n ” , looks like a lower case ” m” .

    Another combo is ” Ll ” , which is the upper case L followed by the lower case L .

    Are there any fonts that would eliminate this situation ?

  609. I also have trouble reading this type of script. But I cannot find a way to change the font. The ‘Times New Roman’ seems easier for me to read.

  610. DQ # 558 . . . Apparently some State Dept. employees ” scrubbed ” documents regarding Benghazi before delivery to the Congressional investigators . Was this done to protect Hillary and , ultimately – OWEbaama ? ?

  611. DQ # 559 . . . By eliminating ‘civics ‘ in the classrooms years ago, the average person today doesn’t really know how gov’t. is supposed to function. Isn’t this one of the reasons why gov’t. is able to “get away with ” so many unlawful or questionable tactics ? ?

  612. DQ #560 . . . Hillary claims to have 20 yrs. of public service. Can you name just ONE accomplishment ?

  613. Regarding #559- What a sick society we live in. I was taught Civics and American History in the 6tth and 8th grades and again in High School along with World History at least two years.. I still have a report I made on the Civil War as a 1960! I have sent all my kids snippets of stories and such I read and receive on the internet, so I know they are getting a little knowledge and I am hoping they are teaching their kids as I have asked on numerous occasions. And now they teach Elementary Schools to sing to Obama and elevate him to most important President ever because he is black? Because of his “Blackness”, I doubt another black can win the presidency for many years. I also think the voters may be gun-shy as to a woman, thinking they stirred things up the last time, and it didn’t turn out so hot, so maybe they shouldn’t deviate again. But it is all a ‘crap shoot’ as my Dad used to say.

  614. Richard,

    Good points. I was also taught civics, geography, and history. Fortunately, I was never taught any of those so- called ” new math ” failures – we learned ” real ” arithmetic. I feel sorry for the kids who are now being subjected to the convoluted Common Core crap. BTW, how does it feel to be the sole member of the Blue Club ?

  615. DQ # 561 . . . OWEbaama and his faithful believe that the illegals should be given the opportunity to pursue the “American Dream ” . Does basic logic permit a non-American to receive something that is available only to Americans ? ?

  616. DQ # 562 . . . Does anyone with an IQ above room temp. really believe that Hillary is presidential material ? ?

  617. DQ # 563 . . . So, Lois Loerner thinks it’s OK to talk to the press, but pleads the Fifth to the Congressional Committee . Is she arrogant, or just confident that Holder will save her butt ? ?

  618. DQ # 564 . . . Holder said he was sending 50 FBI agents to Ferguson,MO to investigate the Brown shooting. Did they ever go there, and when will we see the report ? ?

  619. I also heard they no longer teach penmanship in school. Just what we need: a country signing its name with an “X”. I kind of cringe when I see the death-grip some people have on their pens/pencils.

    I guess I am colorblind, as everybody is blue on my screen.

    #564 This topic is a hot button for me! Did you read the comments a couple of days ago wherein we were told not to jump to conclusions? Talk about steam coming out my ears!

    #562 I have lately started to have a regurgitation warning whenever I see this harridan just like with zippy!

  620. Richard,

    I’m not sure if cursive is taught anymore . In fact, what is being taught these days ? Speaking of education ( or lack thereof ) , have you checked out any of the Common Core nonsense ?

    Your name is the only one in blue on my screen.

  621. Richard,

    If possible, you might try to do a post from a different computer to determine if your name would still appear in blue. Just a thought.

  622. Hmmm…I must be special. Makes one wonder. My Mother was taught cursive in Elementary school. She did not know how to print and taught herself in her 70’s. She had a most wonderful cursive, but her print was almost child like. Mine is the opposite but I copied her cursive and when I wrote it was very legible until Neuropathy took over three years ago.

    I keep wondering if this site is going to shut down one day for non-payment. Are you paying the freight, Larry?

  623. Richard,

    You’re still the man in blue !

    I wonder if Holder will now join some large law firm, and then in about a year or so, OWEbaama will put him on the SCOTUS . How’s that for a scary thought ?

  624. Scary is much too tame for that thought! That surely would be a final nail in the coffin of Uncle Sam. Ever notice how seldom is used the ‘United States of America’ instead using USA? That is because we are no longer united. Even school children are allowed to protest teaching patriotism in school. If it were my child I would begin home schooling so fast they’d get whiplash. Then there is the Texas school required reading of ‘X’ rated books for English class? No way!

  625. Richard,

    Imagine what would happen if parents who home-schooled, or sent their kids to a private school did not have to pay to fund the public school system . Granted, education is mandated – but, apparently a ” quality ” education is not ! Between the unions, and the bureaucrats , haw can any substantial changes be made ?

  626. DQ # 565 . . .
    Whatever happened to all of those 50,000 illegal ‘kids’ that flooded our border a few months ago . . . . the media has a short term memory, doesn’t ? ?

  627. DQ # 566 . . . Owebaama wants open borders and amnesty for illegals, but when some idiot jumps the fence at the WH , the MSM makes a big deal about it. Is this what they consider a “priority ” ? ?

  628. DQ # 567 . . . The Dems campaign funds are one and one-half times that of the GOP. So why are only the Repubs called “evil rich ” ? ?

  629. DQ # 568 . . . The Fed issues student visas with almost wild abandon.
    There are over i million foreign students here today. However there are an additional 56,000 “missing ” students from the student visa program . How many of them are actually terrorists ? ?

  630. DQ # 569 . . . If you were paying the full tuition for your child to attend Harvard, and then you found that Harvard was giving FULL scholarships to ILLEGAL ALIENS , how would you respond ? ?

  631. DQ # 570 . . . As expected , OWEbaama is blaming someone else for his bad decisions – in this case it is the Intelligence community . Will the Liar in Chief EVER admit that HE was wrong ? ?

  632. DQ #571 . . . Have you noticed that Ebola has taken the OWEbaama scandals off the front pages ? ?

  633. DQ # 572 . . . Supposedly, there are no records available regarding the birth certificates of Mooshelle, or her daughters . Is that because it might indicate that OWEbaama is not a US citizen ? ?

  634. Why do the ‘hackers’ not hack this family. It surely would prove one’s proficiency of their ability. Here is a little something I received:

    I love it when a complicated situation can be explained in such simple terms!
    * Democrats don’t understand THE DEBT CEILING
    * Republicans don’t understand THE DEBT CEILING
    * Liberals don’t understand THE DEBT CEILING
    * NO ONE understands THE DEBT CEILING
    * SO – Allow me to explain.
    Let’s say you come home from work and find there has been a sewer
    backup in your neighborhood. Your home has sewage all the way up to
    your ceilings. What do you think you should do — raise the ceiling
    or pump out the shit? Your choice is coming in November.

  635. Richard,

    Maybe most hackers are Liberals – just a guess !

    Regarding the Debt Ceiling – remember even after a disastrous first term, the Stupid Voters RE-ELECTED the Liar in Chief. What hope do we really have for November ?

    BTW , speaking of STUPID, have you had a chance to checkout the Common Core Standards ?

  636. A definition of globalization that even I can understand and to which I now can relate:

    What is the truest definition of Globalization?

    Answer: Princess Diana’s death.

    How come?

    Answer :An English Princess with an Egyptian boyfriend
    crashes in a French tunnel, riding in a German car
    with a Dutch engine ,driven by a Belgian who was drunk
    on Scottish whisky,(check the bottle before you change the spelling),
    followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,on
    Japanese motorcycles,treated by an American doctor,using
    Brazilian medicines.

    This is sent to you by a Canadian,using American Bill Gates’ technology,
    and you’re probably reading this on your computer,that
    uses Taiwanese chips,and a Korean monitor,assembled by
    Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant,transported by Indian
    truck drivers,hijacked by Indonesians,unloaded by
    Sicilian longshoremen,and trucked to you by Mexicans who
    are in the US illegally because the current president,
    born in Kenya and educated as a muslim in Indonesia
    refuses to enforce US law.

    That, my friends, is Globalization !

  637. I didn’t think fully before I posed that question, so your answer is correct. And regarding the common core, that is a real hot button to me. Then I read about students dictating what can be taught in civics class. Now Seattle changes Columbus Day to Indigenous People Day. AARRGGGGGHH!

  638. And, let’s not forget the huge amount of US currency that is being spread around the globe , in a very wasteful manner .

  639. Regarding Common Core, if Pearson owns the program, and if it is copyrighted, and then if schools decide to make changes on their own, won’t they then be libel for infringement of the copyright laws ?

  640. DQ # 573 . . . Owebaama had a recent meeting with some wealthy millionaires. The purpose of the meeting – to complain about the rich ! !

    What am I missing here ? ?

  641. DQ # 574 . . . So, Seattle, WA banned Columbus Day . Will Thanksgiving Day be next, since Indians were involved in the very first one ? ?

  642. DQ # 575 . . . In a few weeks, the heading of this thread ( Merry Christmas ) will be timely and appropriate. Did you ever think it could possibly happen ? ?

  643. DQ # 576 . . . As OWEbaama continues making glaring errors in his decisions, or lack thereof , some in the MSM are FINALLY beginning to ” see the truth ” – what took them so long ? ?

  644. DQ # 577 . . . With all of the attention on Ebola, is this not a good time to explain to OWEbaama that open borders is NOT a good policy ? ?

  645. DQ # 578 . . . With so much emphasis on airlines regarding ebola, can you imagine what would happen if an ebola infected person were on a ship, either commercial or cruise ? ?

  646. Richard,

    Do you have any updates, or words of wisdom, regarding Common Core ?

  647. DQ # 579 . . . We often hear it said that we are the ‘richest’ nation on earth. With almost $18 trillion of national debt, how can that possibly be true ? ?

  648. DQ # 580 . . . Similarly , if an individual were to amass a huge amount of debt, and not be able to pay it down, would that person also be considered ” rich ” ? ?

  649. I haven’t heard anything lately on Common Core, but I know one school district has rejected it and left the agenda to the teacher. Of course, one “sue happy” (sewer) immediately comes forward to threaten the district, so the state education said it was not going to enforce common core. Since that, the subject has left the news. I think common core will likely be an issue in the 2016 elections to begin with, but public out-cry will get it erased.

  650. She’s Almost as Smart as Joe Biden

    Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a
    naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born
    in America. The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National
    Archives in Washington, D.C

    She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence,
    “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the
    signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that
    changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were
    born American – they became American.”

    Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence
    and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America?
    Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison were born in Virginia. John Adams was born in Massachusetts. Only eight of the 56 were not born in
    America. Surely she knew this, being a highly educated woman.

    But, then again, maybe not.

    After all, she is a Harvard graduate. Isn’t she?

  651. I apologize if I have sent this before. Old age is happening here, dang it!

    Here is a model separation agreement:

    1. Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by land mass, each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy. Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides had such distinct and disparate tastes.
    2. We don’t like redistributive taxes, so you can keep them.
    3. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.
    4. Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military.
    5. We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar, and bio-diesel.
    6. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
    7. We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street.
    8. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless homeboys, hippies, druggies, and illegal aliens.
    9. We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and Rednecks.
    10. We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood ..
    11. You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
    12. You can have the peace-niks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.
    13. We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
    14. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness, and Shirley McLain. You can also have the U.N., but we will no longer be paying the bill.
    15. We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.
    16. You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors..
    17. We’ll continue to believe healthcare is an earned luxury and not a right.
    18. We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The National Anthem.”
    19. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya,” or “We Are the World”.
    20. We’ll practice trickledown economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
    21. Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our constitution and our flag.
    22. Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

  652. Think we can get this message upper most in the minds of the United States voters?

    As a 27 year old staff attorney for the House Judiciary committee during the Watergate Investigation, Hillary Rodham was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman.
    When asked why Hillary Rodham was fired, Zeifman said in an interview, “Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer, she conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the Committee, and rules of confidentiality.”

    There was a picture of this occurrence attached to this eMail I received. I have retyped it because it would not post.

  653. Richard,

    As usual – good stuff. Supposedly, Mooseshell was also fired when she was working as an attorney. Sadly , both have lived in the WH !

    Do you remember when OWEbaama bragged that over 8 million had signed up for OWEbaamascare , just hours after the deadline ? AS it turns out, 71 % of the 8,.5 million were actually dumped into Medicaid . Thats 6 million able-bodied that were illegally put on Medicaid .

    Apparently the Dems are proud of the lawlessness of this WH !

  654. DQ # 581 . . . How long will it take for the WH to regain it’s sense of prominence after the OWEbaama gang has departed ? ?

  655. DQ # 582 . . . According to Hillary, corporations and businesses do NOT create jobs . Does anyone really believe that she is ” Presidential ” material ? ?

  656. DQ # 583 . . . OWEbaama believes that HE knows what is best for this country. Why don’t the remaining 320 billion of us have a say in these decisions ? ?

  657. DQ # 584 . . . Since the Fed is taking more control of so many things that affect our lives ( usually adversely ) , is it time for a ” Convention of States ” , in order for the states to limit this excessive take-over by the Fed, and allow the states to use their Constitutional powers ? ?

  658. DQ # 585 . . . The state of CA is offering driver’s licenses ( AKA voter ID’s ) to illegals at a cost of $220 million . Is this another sign of the Dems desperation ??

  659. DQ # 586 . . . Is there anything that the Dems will NOT due in order to stay in power ? ?

  660. DQ #587 . . . With so many citizens out of work, why does the gov’t. continue to issue work permits to foreigners ? ?

  661. DQ # 588 . . . How could anyone possibly believe that the GOP is waging a ‘WAR ON WOMEN ‘ , and do they believe that there are NO women in the GOP ? ?

  662. DQ # 589 . . . Massive fraud has been identified in the OWEbaamaphone program – is anyone surprised ? ?

  663. DAQ # 590 . . . Can anyone really ‘justify ‘ the OWEbaamaphone program ? ? Buying votes for the DEMS , is NOT a justification – it might even be bribery , since it is not a necessity.

  664. DQ # 591 . . . Is anyone still visiting this site ? ?

  665. DQ # 592 . . . Should anyone visit this site ? ?

  666. DQ # 593 . . . Does Larry still visit this site ? ?

  667. DQ #594 . . . Should this site continue to exist ? ?

  668. JJ – I’m still hanging around, but think the time has come to lay it to rest.

    There is NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING the Democrats wouldn’t do to get votes. The phone program was pure bribery to begin with, but it took on a life of its own and is evidently death proof like all the acts of demon-crats.

    I too wonder why foreign immigrants get work permits when Americans are jobless. How in the world do the unemployed pay their bills?

    I would be in favor of a States Convention if we had strong leadership in each State. The problem is, there aren’t any “Palin” guts in leadership positions. The Republicans may take the Senate and grow their numbers in the House, but you wait and see. They will sit on their hands for two years!

  669. Subject: Destruction of America……

    Wherever you stand on this issue, please take the time to read this; it should wake you from your slumber on this important truth.

    We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant.

    Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, D.C., filled to capacity with many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, “Mexifornia”, explaining how immigration – both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

    Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America.

    The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, “If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.’”

    “Here is how they do it,” Lamm said.

    “First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: ‘The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.’ Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.”

    Lamm went on:

    “Second, to destroy America, invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.”

    “Third, we could make the United States an ‘Hispanic Quebec’ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: ‘The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance, but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.’ Lamm said, “I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.”

    “Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.”

    “My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology.’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority placation.”

    “My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. “E. Pluribus Unum” — From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the
    ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Un
    um,’ we will “Balkanize” America as surely as Kosovo.

    “Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bi-lingual/bi-cultural country, having established multi-culturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”

    In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson’s book ‘Mexifornia.’ His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”

    There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America. Take note of California and other states. To date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book “1984.” In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: “War is peace,” “Freedom is slavery,” and “Ignorance is strength.”

    Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation, and the future of this great democracy, is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

    If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did for you. NOTHING is going to happen if you don’t!

    It’s hard to comprehend all this guy has done without any recognition. I feel much better now. I had been under the impression he hadn’t been doing ANYTHING!!

  671. Lewiston, Idaho Veterinarian’s Letter to the Editor re: Ebola, Nails it!

    The present Ebola crisis in the world is frightening. I have submitted the following letter to the editor of the Lewiston Morning Tribune:

    Editor, Lewiston Morning Tribune:

    If I wish to import a horse into the United States from Liberia or any African country other than Morocco, the horse needs to undergo a 60 day quarantine period at a USDA approved quarantine facility prior to mingling with the general population of horses in this country. Africa has a disease called African Horse Sickness that does not exist in the US; this is the way we have kept it out of this country. African Horse Sickness does not cause disease in people, only horses; our government has determined that it would be devastating to the US horse industry if it were to come here.

    The United States (and virtually all other countries) require a myriad of tests and often quarantine prior to bringing in a foreign animal.

    I can’t legally cross state lines in the United States with a horse or cow without a health certificate signed by a USDA accredited veterinarian stating that the animal has been inspected and found free of infectious disease. In most cases blood tests are also required. In fact I can’t legally cross the Snake River and ride my horse in Idaho without a health certificate and a negative blood test for Equine Infectious Anemia.

    I’m not complaining; the United States of America, the States of Idaho and Washington as well as the other 48 states take the health of our livestock very seriously, and we have a very good record at keeping foreign animal diseases out of our country. I am happy to do my part to maintain biosecurity in our animal population.

    If I am a resident of Liberia incubating Ebola, to enter the United States all I need to do is present a valid visa, and lie when asked if I have been exposed to Ebola. Within hours (no quarantine required) I can be walking the streets of any city in the United States.

    I feel very fortunate to live in a country that values our animals so highly.

    David A. Rustebakke, DVM

  672. Richard,

    I hope that you’ll hang in there , since you post good info. such as the above,and which I enjoy reading. Also, we seem to have a lot in common, and I appreciate your comments – even if it’s only once a week.

    As I was driving home from work this evening, for some unknown reason, I thought of some of the very things that you listed regarding OWEbaama’s accomplishments . Almost eerie ! Or is it because it’s halloween ?

    BTW , your name still appears in blue on my computer – is it that way on your’s ? Also, none of my posts have been ‘monitored ‘ for quite some time, even though I’ve not really changed my tone on the comments. Never understood why they were monitored to begin with.

    I’ve often thought about calling the St. Louis police dept. to see if Larry was OK – what are your thoughts ? Don’t want to invade his privacy , just hope he’s OK and that he’ll be back .

  673. Yes, blue is how our names appear. Not a bad idea calling the police just to check on Larry after what has been going on in that area. I too have been concerned about his well being. I will hang around. Your questions are very evocative and precise. I enjoy the stimulation to my aging mind.

  674. Here is a little fun:
    As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world,
    I rapidly realized that I don’t really give a rat’s hiney.
    It’s the tortoise life for me! And here is why……….

    1. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
    2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.
    3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
    4. A tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.

    And you tell me to exercise? I don’t think so.
    I’m retired. Go around me.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Now that I’m older and wiser, here’s what I’ve discovered:

    1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
    2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran.
    3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.
    4. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
    5. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
    6. If all is not lost, where is it?
    7. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.
    8. Some days, you’re the dog; some days you’re the hydrant.
    9. I wish the buck stopped here; I sure could use a few.
    10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.
    11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.
    12. It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.
    13. The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you’re in the bathroom.
    14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.
    15. When I’m finally holding all the cards, why does everyone want to play chess?
    16. It’s not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.
    17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.
    18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something,
    and then wonder what I’m here after.
    19. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
    20. DID I SEND THESE TO YOU BEFORE……….??????

  675. Here’s one more – many squander their health in order to accumulate wealth, then squander that wealth in an attempt to buy back their health.

    Regarding the election, many believe that the GOP did not really defeat the Dems, but rather that OWEbaama’s policies defeated the Dems. So now OWEbama is trying to blame the loss on the people that did not vote. Is he implying that it is Dems that usually do not vote? And if so, then who elected him in 2008 ? Maybe in a few days, he’ll blame the loss on Bush !

    The question now is : how much damage can OWEbaama cause in the next two years, since we know that he is vindictive , and has an agenda that includes amnesty , closing Gitmo , open borders, and a deal with Iran , among other things .

    It’s up to the GOP to get their act together, stop the in-fighting, stop the politicking , and do what is right for the entire country.

  676. DQ # 595 . . . Now that Putin has been declared “the most powerful man in the world ” , what will the narcissistic egomaniac in the WH say about that ? ?

  677. DQ # 596 . . . Is OWEbaama deliberately making the US look weak in front of the entire world, or is he too ignorant to realize what he is doing ? ?

  678. DQ #597 . . . According to the latest AP poll, 56% want OWEbaamascare to be TOTALLY repealed, while 41 % believe it should continue.
    What part of that do the Dems not understand ? ?

  679. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who is still visiting this site . Perhaps I should have addressed this message to Richard !

  680. DQ # 598 . . . After the grand jury decision was announced last night, did anyone really believe that there would be no rioting, no fires, and no damage to property ?

  681. I can honestly say I felt very sorry for the grand jury members. It was all too obvious they were in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation. And the rioting is not a reaction of the verdict, it is plain and simple action – – planned well in advance of whatever verdict came.

    Happy Turkey Leg to all. May you have a bundle of blessings to be thankful for.

  682. Richard,

    Agreed. Good to hear from you. When is $harpton going to be held liable for his part in the riots ? Also, how did he run-up a tax bill of over $4 million ?
    Jack$on , Holder and Obama have also led to some of the problems.

  683. WOW . . . It’s been almost a full year since we last heard from Larry. I do hope he is OK , and was also wondering if his dept. was called to assist in the Ferguson riots. Isn’t it interesting how a certain segment of society keeps demanding ‘respect’ , but then goes out and destroys someone else’s property – so much for their ‘respect ‘ of others ! !

    I’ve always considered the Grand Jury concept to be a very serious component of our Judicial System , unfortunately these so-called ‘demonstrators’ think otherwise.

    There also doesn’t seem to be any distinction between “protestors ” , “demonstrators ” , ” rioters ” , and ” looters ” . Except, of course when the MSM decides which term it uses.

  684. DQ # 599 . . . Will the Jonathan Gruber tapes, and consequent testimony be the downfall of OWEbaamascare ?

  685. DQ # 600 . . . Likewise will the Dems so called “Interrogation Report ” put many of our military , foreign service personnel, and Ambassadors in harms way ?

  686. #599 – One can hope and pray for this outcome!
    #600 – A big resounding YES, no ifs, ands, or buts about it!
    Q – Will the GOP ever catch on that Boehner is a RINO 110%? Will there be a recall when the newbies get on board? That would surely cement them in the history books!

  687. DQ # 601 . . . Cn you imagine what goes thru the mind of a foreigner when they hear someone like Biden, or Pelosi speak ?

  688. Richard,

    There are too many Rinos in DC , and the power base is so strong and tight knit that the newbies will have an almost impossible chance to affect any serious change. Is it time for TERM LIMITS ?

  689. It is sooooo time for TERM LIMITS! Should have that and a requirement making the taxpayers vote needed to set Legislature Pay Raise. Right now it is automatic, I think.
    Sorry, just can’t visualize hearing these wacko’s and not knowing their back-story. It’s bad enough knowing.

  690. Kind of long – but worth the read…

    Democrats are right, there are two Americas. The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. That’s the divide in America .

    It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.

    That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.

    The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just. That is the rationale of thievery.

    The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat. That is the philosophy that produced Detroit.

    It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.

    The Democrats have not empowered their followers; they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope. The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful–seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society is a result of different choices leading to different consequences. Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure. Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income. You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college – and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education. You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course. Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

    My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an in equality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant. He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than mine. Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth? No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.

    It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away, it is freedom. The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his #$%$ and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and short sighted decisions.

    Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort.

    The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.”

    Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society. Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through mediocrity. He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other. America is not divided by the differences in our incomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts.

    It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.

    What Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow. Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln ’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

  691. One 82-year-old lady loves Obama and she may have a very good point. She says that Obama is amazing, and is rebuilding the American dream! She gives us an entirely new slant on the “amazing” job Obama is doing, and she says that she will thank God for the President. Keep reading for her additional comments and an explanation. When discussing Obama, she says:

    1. Obama destroyed the Clinton Political Machine, driving a stake through the heart of Hillary’s presidential aspirations – something no Republican was ever able to do.

    2. Obama killed off the Kennedy Dynasty – no more Kennedys trolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.

    3. Obama is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes! Dennis Moore had never lost a race. Evan Bayh had never lost a race. Byron Dorgan had never lost a race. Harry Reid – soon to be GONE! These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has destroyed. By the end of 2016 dozens more will be gone. Just think, in December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In the previous two election cycles, they picked up 14 Senate seats and 52 House seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party. However, in just one year, Obama put a stop to all of this and has given the House and the Senate back to the Republicans.

    4. Obama has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Sadly, every generation seems to need to re-learn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. Obama is bringing home the lesson very well: Liberals tax, borrow and spend. Liberals won’t bring themselves to protect America. Liberals want to take over the economy. Liberals think they know what is best for everyone. Liberals are not happy until they are running YOUR life.

    5. Obama has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan. In one year, he has rejuvenated the Conservative Movement and brought out to the streets millions of freedom loving Americans. Name one other time when you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America!

    6. Obama, with his “amazing leadership,” has sparked the greatest period of sales of firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding citizens have rallied and have provided a “stimulus” to the sporting goods field while other industries have failed, faded, or moved off-shore.

    7. In all honesty, one year ago I was more afraid than I have been in my life. Not afraid of the economy, but afraid of the direction our country was going. I thought, Americans have forgotten what this country is all about. My neighbors and friends, even strangers, have proved to me that my lack of confidence in the greatness and wisdom of the American people has been flat wrong.

    8. When the American people wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter reader can fool them! Barack Obama has served to wake up these great Americans! Again, I want to say: “Thank you, Barack Obama!” After all, this is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately needed!!

    9. He made Jimmy Carter happy since Jimmy is no longer the worst president we’ve ever had.

  692. Richard,

    As usual, good stuff !

    At the ‘peaceful’ protest march in NYC,regarding the Eric Garner fatality, the protestors were chanting “kill the cops” . Wonder what these protestors would say/do , if the police decided not to respond to calls in the protestor’s neighborhoods.

  693. DQ # 602 . . . Owebaama claimed that he is the third best POTUS , right behind Lincoln and FDR . How many Libs could possibly have believed that claim ? ?

  694. Regarding the cops – let’s try it and find out. Too bad the cops couldn’t chant back “Kill the Mob”!

    Zippy certainly has delusions of grandeur! I imagine 90% of the liberals believe him. How jaded is that?

  695. And, it also sounds like he is pushing a race agenda – just like his pals : Holder, $harpton, and Je$$ie . If he could run for a third term, I wonder how many would still vote for him !

  696. Bite your tongue! Too many would vote AYE!

  697. DQ #602 . . . What is happening in this world – OWEbaama cuts a deal with Cuba – which is going to cost us $ $ $ , and SONY bows to some twerp from another country and pulls it’s film . I think SONY should put the film on the internet, and let the whole world view it – then let’s see what that little twerp does ! ! Is OWEbaama ever going to do something that is beneficial to this country ? ?

  698. A full year has gone by it is Merry Christmas once again. I wish I could say our country is in better shape, but we know it isn’t . Two more years for us to unravel.

  699. Monica,

    Good to hear from you – how have you been ?
    At the rate things are going, the Liar in Chief is on target to do a lot of damage in the next two years. Just look at what he has cost us in the past two years alone – amnesty,Gitmo releases, Cuba deal, foreign relations errors, race relations. etc.

    Has anyone heard anything about the influx of 50,000 so-called ‘children ‘ from Central America a few months ago ? Just imagine the negative impact on the communities that were forced to accept them . Were those places instructed to ” shut up ” and accept these illegals ? When will all of that be exposed ?

    And, what will he do in his last week in office – pardon all terrorists and all convicts ?

    He is side – stepping the law with his executive orders and executive ‘memos’ – both of which have the same result . Then he claims that he has issued fewer orders than other Presidents. Of course, he won’t mention the ‘memos’

    He has $harpton as an advisor on race relations. What could possibly go wrong with that idea ? Well. is the assassination of the two NYC cops a slight clue ?

  700. Hi JJ, The next shoe to drop in the O.B regime is something I heard that sent chills up my spine. His next big move is to open the U.S. to thousands of people from the Middle East. How will he verify these muslims are not coming here to do us harm. It seems since he lies all the time those coming can also lie. God help us. Will the new Congress has the guts to take a stand against this mad man. Our country is changing for the worst. He is fundamentally changing it as he promised.

  701. I’m still not blue. Is that a good sign?

  702. Monica,

    You’re not in blue on my computer , but Richard still is – and I have no idea as to why ! I was blue for awhile,and my posts were being delayed – then it stopped, and have not been blue since. Go figure ! !

    OWEbaama is a socialist and a racist. He grew up in a Communist household, and is mixed race – this seems to be a problem for him. Almost everything he has done appears to be detrimental for this country. He’s a narcissistic egomaniac who believes that he is smarter than everyone, particularly our Military generals.

  703. Back in 2008, many were saying ” it’s time for a Black POTUS ” . Now we are hearing ” it’s time for a female POTUS ” . A comedian responded – ” let’s eliminate a few steps and go for a ‘ gay female Latino ‘ . ouch !!

  704. MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone.

  705. DQ # 603 . . . Regarding the movie “The Interview ” , was the hacker story real, or was it just a ploy by SONY to generate buzz about the film in order to sell tix ? ?


  707. Happy New Year. I agree, a phony hype. No one would have gone to see it because it is so bad. Like the crap coming out of tinsel town . Just read holly weird is upset because ticket sales are way down. When you produce trash what do they expect. We would go more often but can’t find a decent movie.

  708. Oh oh, I am blue!

  709. And JJ has turned back to black. The next two years are going to be hard. It is imperative the Republicans elect a whole new team of directors and place the RINO’s in protective custody and re-educate them. However, we can hope the public will recall them at the next election.
    Monica, the editorial cartoon in my paper today shows a couple leaving and theatre and the woman saying, “I wish someone would hack Hollywood and plant and interesting script.” So I think the ticket sales should be a wake-up call to Hollywood. They think they are the only show in town, but guess what? TV Has had a some great hits recently and some have even been clean. Like they say, vote with your money.
    Hap————-py New Year!

  710. Monica,

    Agreed. Even though it’s not a good flick, at least the public did not backdown to the threats. BTW, you’ve never been blue on my screen !

  711. Richard,

    You’re special – still in blue ! 🙂

    Yup – get rid of the RINOS , and bring on term limits, so that members of Congress do their job, instead of spending 50 % of the time campaigning. Speaking of Hollyweird, Owebaama condemns the ‘rich’ , then goes to the left coast and gets big bucks from the very people that he has vilified ! I suppose I’ll never understand the Liberal mindset.

  712. Right JJ. He wines and dines with the big shots. Golfs with them. I wish he would do that full time and turn in his pen and phone. We would all be better off,
    Yes, can the Rinos. They are so entrenched it’s hard to unseat them. God help us, perfect example, Hairy reed. Someone said he will not run again. Amen to that! The lazy SOB

  713. OWEbaama blames Congress for doing ” nothing “, but as we know it is Dingy Harry who has held up passing legislation . And, since the Senate has done next to nothing for the past 6 yrs, should they return their paychecks ?

  714. God forbid Congress get paid for their labor. They’d all be in the poor house (with Shillary)! I don’t think Harry would dare run again. He knows where his polls are. Here’s hoping Nevada has a strong Republican candidate!

  715. Las Vegas is a hard- core union town, which makes it pro Dem, and therefore difficult for a GOP candidate. How else could someone like Dingy prevail for so long ?

    As for Shillary, can you name one POSITIVE thing that she accomplished as SOS ?

  716. Give me a bit. I’m still trying to think of ONE thing she dis.

  717. Take as much time as needed – I suspect it will be a lengthy process 🙂

  718. I just thought of one this morning – spending money. She certainly felt at ease in throwing our tax money anywhere she was.

  719. Is that really a POSITIVE thing ?

  720. DQ # 604 . . . OWEbaama just got back from one of his taxpayer funded ‘super expensive’ vacations – and considering the problems in this country, what is the FIRST thing he’s going to do ?
    Could it be his usual tactic , namely – get on AF1 and go on a campaign trip?

  721. Hi everyone, this is Larry’s wife and I want to let you all know that Larry is fine. Thank you for your concern! We have had a very busy two years which included buying and renovating a new house, renovating and selling our former home, moving, Larry retiring from the police department and starting a new career, moving Larry’s Mum to a nursing home and dealing with all the things is her house etc… We are in the final stretch with the new house–new windows going in next week and a major landscaping rehaul currently in process. I am hoping our lives will settle back into a more normal routine by February or March. I know Larry misses all of you and his writing. I will talk to him and see if I can get him back on here soon. We will also be sure to keep paying for the site so please continue to express yourself and post often.

  722. Hi Carmen,
    Thank you for the update, and glad to hear that he is fine. Also, thanks for keeping the site alive. BTW, if Larry isn’t ready to post something, then perhaps you will take a moment for a little update , as time warrants . As you know , Larry is a good writer, and here’s hoping you’ll be able to get him back here real soon. Best wishes for success in the house projects, and for Larry’s new career.

  723. Hi Carmen,
    Thanks for easing our concerns. I know what you are going through with the renovations as we have updated/renovated/added on to our house five times while living in it! My wife is a neat freak (I say that kindly, as she cares) so living in a construction zone was very stressful to her. It always took longer as we used child labor (our 7 kids)! She often felt she lived in a war zone. We certainly are waiting with bated breath for our fearless leader and would enjoy hearing from you as time permits. Wishing you the best in the New Year and a normalcy returning to your lives.

  724. By the way. Carmen’s name is black and JJ was black only the one time and is back to blue.

  725. Richard,

    You are the only one in blue on my computer – guess it makes you very special ! 🙂

  726. DQ # 605 . . . OWEbaama and the WH mouthpiece , Josh ( not so ) Earnest refuse to use the term “Islamic Terrorist ” . Why are they afraid to tell the truth ?

  727. Problem : 18,000 hi tech workers just lost their jobs in Silicon Valley

    OWEbaama solution : Train more hitch workers ! !

  728. Problem : Thousands of recent college grads can’t find jobs, and have student loans to pay off.

    OWEbaama solution #1 : totally free community college in order to provide more college grads without job

    Solution #2 : Remove the obligation to repay the student loans

    BTW, are the above recent grads considered ” unemployed “, and are they included in the unemployment figures ?

  729. “hitch workers ” should read “hi tech workers.” { of course you knew that }

  730. #605 And why would they want to start telling the truth now?
    The grads without jobs I really feel sorry for. But they may have not planned very well. My kids have paid their way through school, not loaned their way through.

  731. Finally! A backbone!
    an Morgan is facing controversy after declaring her business a “Muslim free zone” Sunday.

    The owner of Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Ark. has drawn a line in the sand, and while critics will get angry they should read her reasons why.

    After the recent influx of violence perpetuated by self-proclaimed Islamists, Morgan began to study the religion and discovered “109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam.”

    On her website, Jan Morgan Media, Morgan, an investigative journalist and certified NRA gun instructor, explained that her decision was made based on facts.

    Read her ten-point reasoning that has already provoked controversy:

    I officially declare my business, The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range, a MUSLIM FREE ZONE . . .

    1) The Koran, which I have read and studied thoroughly and (which all muslims align themselves with), contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam. Read those verses of violence here.

    2) My life has been threatened repeatedly by muslims who are angry that I have studied their koran and have, over the past two years, been exposing the vileness of the Koran and its murderous directives.

    3) * The barbaric act of beheading an innocent American in Oklahoma by a muslim
    * the Boston bombings (by muslims)
    * the Fort Hood mass shooting (by a muslim) that killed 13 people and injured over 30 people
    * and the murder of 3000 innocent people (by muslims) on 9/11

    This is more than enough loss of life on my home soil at the hands of muslims to substantiate my position that muslims can and will follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.

    4) Because the nature of my business involves firearms and shooting firearms in an enclosed environment, my patrons are not comfortable being around muslims who align themselves with a religion that clearly commands hate, murder, and violence against all non muslims. Therefore many of my patrons are uncomfortable around Muslims with guns. (can you blame them?)

    5) My range rents and sells guns to my patrons. Why would I want to rent or sell a gun and hand ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?

    6) * Muslims, who belong to and, or, support ISIS, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
    * Muslims, who belong to or support AL Qaeda, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
    * Muslims who belong to or support HAMAS are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
    See a common thread here?

    7) I not only have the right to refuse service but a RESPONSIBILITY to provide a safe environment for people to shoot and train on firearms. I can and have turned people away if I sense they are under the influence of alcohol or mind altering drugs. I have a federal firearms license…
    The ATF informed us when we received the license that if we feel any reason for concern about selling someone a firearm, even sense that something is not right about an individual, or we are concerned about that persons mental state, even if they pass a background check, we do not have to sell that person a gun.
    In other words, a federal agency has given us this kind of discretion for service based on the nature of the business. I can and have turned people away if I sense an issue with their mental state. So… its difficult to imagine how the DOJ could have issues with this when ATF gave us this discretion.

    8) I have no way of looking at Islam other than as a theocracy, not a religion. Islam is undoubtedly the union of political, legal, and religious ideologies. In other words law, religion and state are forged together to form what Muslims refer to as “The Nation of Islam.” Once again it is given the sovereign qualities of a nation with clerics in the governing body and Sharia law all in one. This is a Theocracy, not a religion.

    The US Constitution does not protect a theocracy. The 1st Amendment is very specific about protecting the rights of individuals from the government, as it concerns the practice of religions, not theocracies. It clearly differentiates between government and religion. Again protecting the individual’s religious beliefs and practices from (the state) government. In Islam, religion and state are one.

    We are a Nation governed by laws, or the law of the land the U.S. Constitution. We are not a Nation that is governed by religion, politicians or clerics.
    How then, can anyone say that, the practice of Islam is protected by the U.S. Constitution?
    The Muslim brotherhood has a documented plan for the destruction of America from within, discovered by our own government during a raid of MB operatives in America. In addition, I am very cognizant of the civilization jihad under way in my country by American Muslims. In a number of states Muslims, through our legal system, are trying to force us to accept Sharia Law over Constitutional law. I do not wish to do business with people who stand against the Constitution and are fighting to replace it.

    9) Islam allows Muslims to kill their own children, (honor killing) if the behavior of those children embarrasses or dishonors the family name. (did you know that dating outside of the faith is justification for murdering their daughters and this has already occurred on American soil?) Why would I want people (who believe it’s okay to murder their own children), be in the presence of other children? My patrons often bring their kids to the range to teach them to shoot. I am responsible for providing a safe environment for those children to learn gun safety and shooting sports.

    10) In the 14 hundred year history of Islam, muslims have murdered over 270 million people. Not all muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists in the world right now are muslim. Since you can’t determine by visual assessment, which ones will kill you and which ones will not, I am going to go with the line of thought that ANY HUMAN BEING who would either knowingly or unknowingly support a “religion” that commands the murder of all people who refuse to submit or convert to that religion, is not someone I want to know or do business with. I hold adults accountable for the religion they align themselves with.

    In summary, I not only have the right, but a responsibility to provide a safe environment for my customers. I do not believe my decision is religious discrimination because I do not classify islam as a religion.. It is a theocracy/terrorist organization that hides behind the mask of religion in order to achieve its mission of world domination.

    People who shoot at my range come from all religious backgrounds… some are atheists… I do not care about their religious beliefs. I care about the safety of my customers who come to shoot here. The government allows businesses to ban me from entering their business with my gun because the property owner feels uncomfortable or wants to provide a “safe” environment for their patrons which is in clear violation of my 2nd Amendment right to bear arms, so…

    I should be able to deny service to people on the same premise. Can my government really force me to invite someone who had threatened to kill me, into my home or business?

    I will do whatever is necessary to provide a safe environment for my customers, even at the cost of the increased threats and legal problems this decision will likely provoke.

  732. Will the MSM and the WH discover this article, and if some how they do, what will be their response ? I can only imagine ! 🙂

  733. DQ # 606 . . . Speaking of the WH , will they ever use the term ” Islamic Terrorism ” ? ?

  734. DQ # 607 . . . Al $harpton owes approx. $4.5 million in back taxes, which he isn’t paying, because as he stated ” they’re OLD taxes ” . In spite of this , OWEbaama gave him a ‘key’ to the WH ! Does this tell you anything about the current resident in the WH ? ?

  735. DQ # 608 . . . Speaking of $harpton, how much did he gross, in order to owe $4.5 million in taxes ? ?

  736. Not to mention just how much came under the table. Will some group step forward and pay his taxes, or will they start to awaken to this disease?

  737. DQ # 609 . . . Considering the huge number of Federal gov’t. employees , especially those at the IRS who have not paid taxes, why should $harpton be concerned about paying his taxes ? ?

  738. DQ # 610 . . . Is the NFL’s “deflategate” real , or just more hype generation for the Super Bowl ? ?

  739. DQ # 611 . . . Islamic Terrorism does not exist ! Do those idiots in the WH actually expect us to BELIEVE their nonsense ? ? I suppose we should be expected to accept that those beheadings were done by ” activists ” ! !

  740. Think of the be-headings, then think about The American Sniper. Then ask, if you had a bead on the terrorist about to perform the be-heading……. would you pull the trigger? Americans without a clue are the pompous and stuffed shirts with too much wind, so are talking through their a–!

    Deflategate is pure and simple a media bonanza the papers couldonly hope for and a pure misdirection for the WH.

  741. Yes, I would pull it , probably more than once ! Have you heard that according to the WH , the Taliban are NOT terrorists – they simply perform terrorist activities . If it quacks like a duck . . . . .

  742. DQ # 612 . . . OWEbaama’s budget adds almost another $ 1/2 trillion to the debt. How do we stop is idiotic idea of an unlimited National Debt ? ?

  743. DQ # 613 . . . 50 % of recent college grads can’t find a job. A certain person in the District of Corruption has a solution :
    1 – Forgive the student loans
    2 – Offer totally free community college

    How is that a ‘solution ” ? ?

  744. DQ # 614 . . . Jonathan Gruber, the architect of OWEbaamascare , has been off the front page for sometime now – wasn’t he scheduled to testify before the Congressional committee?

  745. DQ # 615 . . . Haven’t been here for awhile, but I had to ask – with Hillary’s latest E-mail/server scandal, should she be disqualified to run for POTUS ? ?

  746. DQ # 616 . . . Today is Pi day. If you are not a mathematician or a scientist, does this day mean anything special, and will you celebrate it by eating a piece of pie ? ? BTW , what is your favorite pie ?

  747. Carmen,

    If you’re still checking in, and if you get a chance, please let us know how Larry is doing . Thanks

  748. When you posting your awesome stuff again????

  749. Lance,

    If you look at the posts between DQ # 604 and 605 , you will get an answer.

  750. DQ # 617 . . . If you were a regular here,and happen to occasionally drop by this site, have you replaced this one with another, and if so, would you recommend other sites ?

  751. Hi JJ, Since we live in Arizona we have a lot of visitors in the winter. So needless to say I have been busy. I have a site you might like to check out. A woman named Teri OBrien (just google her name) has a really great blog. I started listening to her on the radio on WLS in Chicago. But, she was too conservative for the city fathers, the liberal ones, and lost her show. I now listen to her every Sunday afternoon, she also has a pod cast, so you can listen to her any time. She calls herself a Conservative Princess Warrior. You might enjoy checking out her site and radio. I have followed her for over 10 years and find her very entertaining.

  752. Hi Monica,

    Thanks for your reply,and I’ll check out her site. BTW, if you hadn’t seen the post from Larry’s wife, Carmen ( it was back on Jan. 9th ) , she stated that he retired from the police force,and has a new job.

    Richard has not been on since Jan 29th, so I hope he’s OK , and that he’ll comment soon.

    I’ve also been busy, but continue to put a little something on here , just to keep the site open.

    Thanks again, and have a Happy Easter.

  753. Alan Caruba on Barack Obama As The Most Unprepared Man

    by Alan Caruba:

    “I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he’s led a kind of make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened because at some point early on somebody or some group (George Soros, maybe? or Frank Marshall Davis??) took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided toward a life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him in the White House.

    In a very real way, he has been a young man in a very big hurry. Who else do you know has written two memoirs before the age

    of 45? “Dreams of My Father” was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years old. The “Audacity of Hope” followed in 2006. If, indeed, he did write them himself. There are some who think that his mentor and friend, Bill Ayers, a man who calls himself a “communist with a small ‘c’ was the real author.

    His political skills consisted of rarely voting on anything that might be deemed controversial. He went from a legislator in the Illinois House to the Senator from that state because he had the good fortune of having Mayor Daley’s formidable political machine at his disposal. He was in the U.S. Senate so briefly that his bid for the presidency was either an act of astonishing self-confidence or part of some greater game plan that had been determined before he first stepped foot in the Capital. How, many must wonder, was he selected to be a 2004 keynote speaker at the Democrat convention that nominated John Kerry when virtually no one had ever even heard of him before? He out maneuvered Hillary Clinton in primaries. He took Iowa by storm.

    A charming young man, an anomaly in the state with a very small black population, he oozed “cool” in a place where agriculture was the antithesis of cool. He dazzled the locals. And he had an army of volunteers drawn to a charisma that hid any real substance.

    And then he had the great good fortune of having the Republicans select one of the most inept candidates for the presidency since Bob Dole. And then John McCain did something crazy. He picked Sarah Palin, an unknown female governor from the very distant state of Alaska . It was a ticket that was reminiscent of 1984’s Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro and they went down to defeat. The mainstream political media fell in love with him. It was a schoolgirl crush with febrile commentators like Chris Mathews swooning then and now over the man. The venom directed against McCain and, in particular, Palin, was extraordinary.

    Now, 6 full years into his presidency, all of those gilded years leading up to the White House have left him unprepared to be President.

    Left to his own instincts, he has a talent for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. It swiftly became a joke that he could not deliver even the briefest of statements without the ever-present Tele-Prompters. Far worse, however, is his capacity to want to “wish away” some terrible realities, not the least of which is the Islamist intention to destroy America and enslave the West.

    Any student of history knows how swiftly Islam initially spread. It knocked on the doors of Europe, having gained a foothold in

    Spain. The great crowds that greeted him at home or on his campaign “world tour” were no substitute for having even the slightest grasp of history and the reality of a world filled with really bad people with really bad intentions.

    Oddly and perhaps even inevitably, his political experience, a cakewalk, has positioned him to destroy the Democrat Party’s hold on power in Congress because in the end it was never about the Party.

    It was always about his communist ideology, learned at an early age from family, mentors, college professors, and extreme leftist friends and colleagues. Obama is a man who could deliver a snap judgment about a Boston police officer who arrested an “obstreperous” Harvard professor-friend, but would warn Americans against “jumping to conclusions” about a mass murderer at Fort Hood who shouted “Allahu Akbar.”

    The absurdity of that was lost on no one. He has since compounded this by calling the Christmas bomber “an isolated extremist”

    only to have to admit a day or two later that he was part of an al Qaeda plot. He is a man who could strive to close down our detention

    facility at Guantanamo even though those released were known to have returned to the battlefield against America.

    He could even instruct his Attorney General to afford the perpetrator of 9/11 a civil trial when no one else would ever even consider such an obscenity. And he is a man who could wait three days before having anything to say about the perpetrator of yet another terrorist attack on Americans and then have to elaborate on his remarks the following day because his first statement was so lame.

    The pattern repeats itself. He either blames any problem on the Bush administration or he naively seeks to wish away the truth.

    Knock, knock. Anyone home? Anyone there?

    Barack Obama exists only as the sock puppet of his handlers, of the people who have maneuvered and manufactured this pathetic individual’s life. When anyone else would quickly and easily produce a birth certificate, this man spent over a million dollars to deny access to his. Most other documents, the paper trail we all leave in our wake, have been sequestered from review.

    He has lived a make-believe life whose true facts remain hidden. Even his wife has mentioned they visited the country of his birth, Kenya. You did note she did not accompany him on the trip to Saudi Arabia on which he actually bowed to the king. Being a muslim required him to do so and that same faith prevented him from taking her with him .

    ” We laugh at the ventriloquist’s dummy, but what do you do when the dummy is President of the United States”?

  754. Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor of a British national newspaper.
    Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!

    Written by a British housewife to her daily newspaper:

    ‘Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores in July 2002, and in New York Sept 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since?

    Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day in Washington , and in downtown Manhattan , and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

    Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn’t they?

    And I’m supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.

    I’ll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

    I’ll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg’s head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

    I’ll care when the cowardly so-called ‘insurgents’ in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

    I’ll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

    I’ll care when the British media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a British soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

    I don’t care.

    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take this to the bank:

    I don’t care.

    When I hear that a prisoner – who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and ‘fed special food’ that is paid for by my taxes – is complaining that his holy book is being ‘mishandled,’ you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts:

    I don’t care.

    And oh, by the way, I’ve noticed that sometimes it’s spelled ‘Koran’ and other times ‘Quran..’ Well, believe me!! you guessed it …………

    I don’t care!!

    If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it’ll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behaviour!

    If you don’t agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don’t complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country! And may I add:

    ‘Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. Our soldiers don’t have that problem.’

    I have another quote that I would like to add, AND…….. I hope you forward all this.

    Only seven defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The British Soldier
    3. The Canadian Soldier
    4. The US Soldier
    5. The New Zealand Soldier
    6. The Australian Soldier, and
    7.The South African Soldier

    One died for your soul, the other 6 for your freedom.


    Isn’t it interesting that so many people in the Western World feel this way, but not one of our politicians, who are supposed to represent us, ever have the guts to state the situation like it is?

    We do not have strong politicians, just weaklings that bend in the wind.

  755. Hi! Don’t know if anyone is out there anymore. Just wanted to pass on a couple of articles I had received.

  756. Richard,

    Yup, still here ! Thanks for that – and it’s unfortunate that the current resident in the WH will never see it. Well, I guess even if he did – he’d deny everything. Keep ’em coming !

  757. noleftturnz

    JJ, This is Carmen. Larry is doing well. I am trying to get him back on the site. Things are settling down for us now and I am hoping he will have more free time and can start writing again. Thanks for keeping the site going!

  758. Hi Carmen,

    Really good to her from you , and that Larry is doing well – can’t wait to hear what he has to say! This might sound strange, but earlier today I realized that it’s been some time since I posted here, so I decided to do so this weekend, and lo and behold there’s a message from you.

    Richard, Monica and I have each done something to keep the site open, and I’m glad that we did. Thanks also to you and Larry. Take care. 🙂

  759. Who says I can only have one? I’ve seldom met a pastry I didn’t like! 🙂

  760. Richard,

    Good to hear from you – I suppose your comment was a reply to DQ #616. However, you did not answer the question : what is your favorite pie ? 🙂

  761. Well, if you limit it to pie, I’d have to go with Rhubarb with Pecan a close second.

  762. DQ # 618 . . .. At the rate things are going, will Trey Gowdy ever get Hillary to testify ?

  763. Not in my lifetime! At this point what difference does it make? Politics are still eroding and seemingly is picking up speed. Sad to say, I think we are in for some very, very hard times.

  764. Can’t disagree. We term limits, along with reduced benefits for members of Congress. They spend 50% of their time campaigning, but get paid full time!
    And we need all bills to be “stand alone”, instead of this nonsense of taking a ‘good’ bill and then adding so much junk to it that it no longer resembles any thing like the original.

    Happy Independence Day to everyone !

  765. Wow, another month has slipped by, and I don’t know where this summer has gone – seems that the summers are getting shorter each year ! Since there are so many GOP candidates for POTUS, do you have any favorites at this point, considering there is plenty of time until the primaries. Trump is making a lot of noise , and many are applauding him for bringing up problems that many of the others are afraid to mention. Walker and Kacisch seem to have done good jobs as governors .Dr. Carson gets criticized for not have political experience, but at the same time – people criticize politicians. Go figure !! Of course the MSM will not comment that Owebama had almost zero experience when he first ran. Planned Parenthood is under attack , and rightly so , for the selling of body parts – wonder how that will shake out . Any thoughts ?

  766. There really are too many “candidates” to choose this early. I want to see how things shake out. The problem with PP is their argument that the fetus is not alive until born, decidedly calls them liars because selling body parts proves the fetus is viable when it quickens in the womb. You don’t have to like him, but Trump is playing to a country who has been lied to for too many years. His being unafraid to tell it like it is could really put a feasting bug into the Dem and Rep parties, eating them alive. I guess it will be like a ringside circus until all the mud is thrown.

    This is an article by Chuck Norris with a great idea for this election cycle. This surely would be a defining moment for all the candidates. They would have to step up and be honest about their reason for running. Maybe we need to spread the idea around through our social media.

  768. Hi Guys, Nice see you are both doing fine. Summer can’t be short enough for me. Only because I live in the Phoenix area. I love winters, sorry. I too hope Larry comes back on because with so many men running for president we need his input. I love Ben Carson,like Walker and a few others. Kacisch and Bush are considered moderates. Am looking forward to the debates to see if someone stands out besides Trump.

    Can’t believe WordPress has not compressed or delete a few months of our conversations.

  770. Saw the so-called debate. It was a mixed bag IMO . Several thoughts:
    With 10 candidates and only about 100 minutes of available time ,it was not good planning.
    The moderators consumed 30% of the allotted time.
    The first question was not necessary, and set the tone for confrontation against Trump.
    Too many ‘gottcha’ questions.
    Certain questions should have been asked of everyone, not just one or two candidates.
    The candidates should stop attacking each other, but rather focus on their DEM opponent , presumably Hillary. They are doing Hillary’s work by attacking each other, IMO .
    Carly did a great job in her debate, but needs additional exposure in order for more people to get got know her qualifications.
    Trump will have a tough time battling the GOP establishment.
    There were some good lines delivered by Carson, Rubio, and Huckabee.

    What are your thoughts ?

  771. I agree with your summation 100%. Fox didn’t do themselves any favors. As the saying goes, Fox “jumped the shark” on this one. Fox took a substantial negative hit for their all out attack on Trump. My suggestion would be all debates suspended until after Christmas. Right now the voting base is totally in flux, I fear there is going to be a negative impact on the voters if the establishment tries to “herd” them with more circus moves. As a general rule, politicians seem to think they know it all and must talk down to John Q. Public and pull the wool over our eyes by obscuring the truth. Just like the retailers have with Christmas, they are shooting themselves in the foot by trying to sell it to the public in July. The politicians are going to be rather stale as they come into the final stretch. I would like to see the news media hold a two hour debate each week (beginning in January) with candidates drawing lots of five. The first debates would be the lot drawn until EVERY candidate has an opportunity to participate. Wait two weeks and draw lots again for a second round, but only the top ten. After this time it would be obvious which candidates have or are going to “fold their tents”. I think news media needs to have their noses held to the grindstone of truth and non biased reporting and leaving off their own opinion.
    I’ll get off my soapbox now.
