Pork Barrel Spending item by Alan Caruba
“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”—Thomas Jefferson
Lemmings the Cliff and 2012
Elections item by Dr. Robert Owens
We all think we are invincible. We all think we will have another day. Then one day there isn’t another day and our day is done. Empires rise and empires fall and everyone always thinks, “We’ll make it through this. We always have” then one time you don’t. No one gets to live in the world they grew up in, because the only thing that never changes is that everything changes.
Clandestine Cause of Global Warming
Climate Change item by Kevin Roeten
Natural cycles ALWAYS change climate. One of the biggest cycles is the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO). It shifts from warm to cold every 20-30 years, or on an inter-decadal time scale. This is directly related to sea surface temperature. The PDO’s temperature variance over more than 100 years can be viewed in the graph below. A common thread to PDO and climate is unmistakable.

The Proper Perspective
ObamaNation item by Larry Wilke
Relative to all of the puling taking place from the verminous left and their “leader”, the proper perspective is in order..
Increase Revenues, don’t Raise Taxes to fix the Debt Crisis
Pork Barrel Spending item by Marita K. Noon
Admittedly, we, as a country, need to get past this debt-ceiling crisis and, consequently, it has consumed the news cycle. But, the proposed solutions focus mainly on two elements of the problem, while the rating agencies seem to be looking at the bigger picture. Whether Republican or Democrat, the plans address only cutting spending or raising taxes, and the $14 trillion number is too large to meet in the middle—even if we did both. Long term, what Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s are looking for is a plan moving forward that will fix the future.
THE ONLY WINNER IN DEBT DEBATE
Politics item by John LeBoutillier
He – and it will be a “he” not a “she” because female candidates have a much tougher time getting fellow women to vote for them (a dirty little non-PC secret of politics) – is looking at the news every hour and just shaking his head. Then he mutters to himself, “It is all just coming right to me – and I don’t have to do a thing!”

Christ Significant? Powerful Answer Playing Out Across US by Team 99
Religion item by Rev. Austin Miles
Beaten down Christians including pastors from their pulpits are bemoaning what they describe as the slow death of Christian influence in today’s society which makes many soon-to-be-defeated Christians wring their hands in despair while whimpering,, “What’s the use?” And as a result of giving up and giving in, they are doing NOTHING to change that perception by positive action such as that being exhibited nationally by “Team 99.”
“Obama Speech: Non-political Address of National Importance, or Political Spam? ”
ObamaNation item by John W. Lillpop
CHANGE, more unwanted change, brought to We the People from the inept poser-in-chief, Barack Obama!
Making Heat Waves Deadly Again
GreeenIsm item by Dennis T. Avery
This last heat wave has been sweltering, but that happens. It was even hotter in 1934, 1911 and other “hot” summers in the past. That’s not extreme weather, it’s “normally abnormal.” This last heat wave has been sweltering, but that happens. It was even hotter in 1934, 1911 and other “hot” summers in the past.

Liberal "Solutions" item by Larry Wilke
(This article is dedicated to Colonel Woody Spring, Army Colonel, NASA astronaut and decorated war hero whom I had the pleasure of meeting earlier this year..)
The good news is that Atlantis came down safely last week. The very bad news is that has now brought to a close the space shuttle program after thirty wonderful and productive years. The Kennedy “space” legacy has ended where so many of America’s conquests and accomplishments have ended, in the very capably destructive hands of Obama. The irony of all that surrounds this dark moment needs to be discussed at some length..

“Disaster Awaits! What will you say to future generations?”
Pork Barrel Spending item by Admin
It seems our country is headed in a downward slide. I cannot sit back and not take notice…even as I have been out of the political writing arena for some time. The big question is indeed, “What will you say to future generations if we don’t pull ourselves up out of the mire?”

LEFT’S REAL GOAL: GUT FOX
MSM/Media Bias item by John LeBoutillier
Let’s be clear about something: the Democratic Left smells blood in the case of Rupert Murdoch and the English hacking scandal.

The Ratification Debate Part Three
Constitution/Republic item by Dr. Robert Owens
Concluding my three part series in celebration of our nation’s 235th Birthday, we will look at arguments advanced by both sides. Last week we ended with the question, who were the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists and why does it matter to us today? This week we will learn the answers to the questions. Who was debating? What did they have to say? Who won? And, why does it matter to us today?

Enough Is Enough
Liberal "Solutions" item by Larry Wilke
As the high drama/low comedy of the “talks” surrounding the OBAMA DEFICIT continue to play out, the actual results surrounding this Vaudevillian vapidity have all been shelved so that the liberals, armed with their patented weeping and their hilarious histrionics, can try to deflect their total responsibility from the eyes of the voting public.. As “Stoli” Joe Biden says, “Let’s get real..”
Social Security Checks Won’t Go Out. Again.
Welfare State item by Michael M. Bates
Talk about grim tidings on the debt ceiling. According to the Washington Post: “Yesterday a worried Treasury Secretary . . . sent a letter to (the) House Speaker . . . listing the consequences if the debt bill was not sent to the President immediately. Social Security checks totaling $8 billion already in the mail would not be cashed and other checks for civil service retirement, veterans payments and government operating costs would not be honored as of today, he said.”

‘Whose Default Is It Anyway?? ’
Page 1 of 2 pages 1 2 >
Liberal "Solutions" item by Larry Wilke
At a time when a proverbial “lid” is placed over the so-called news that comes from “Pelosi’s Swamp”, the political hi-jinks and shenanigans continued over the weekend relative to the public sparring over the need for the raising of the Obama Debt Limit. The weekends in Washington are usually reserved for our “Representatives” to “relax”. The weekends, from the Obama point of view, are for “relaxing” from the exhausting golf and vacation outings taken during the week..
