What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.
The president of the state Senate is blasting a request for lots more money for Child Protective Services, saying the agency may have wasted the funds restored to it in the last two years.
“People were complaining when they answered their phones because ‘Harry Mitchell’ popped up on the caller ID and it was Schweikert’s office. They were blaming Schweikert but they can really only blame their own stupidity. It popped up because they still have the name loaded in their phones under Harry Mitchell’s name. Delete the number from your phone and it will be fixed. Typical of Democrats, no personal responsibility.”
“Rod is up to his old tricks, only telling half the story. But he admitted he didn’t know anything about the fair tax so he looked it up. No doubt on one of his extreme left leaning websites. (Hey, like the commercial says ‘it’s on the internet so it has to be true’). One of the many ‘small’ details he fails to mention is you would not pay payroll, or federal income taxes anymore. For the first time you would keep what you earn. There are many other benefits and everyone would pay their fair share. ... But wait ... where have I heard that before?”

Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
“I was glad to see Dems in the Senate use the nuclear option. Republicans had used obstruction tactics to the point it had evolved into torment of American people.”
I was 4 ½ years old when I delivered my first news report.

“I believe I write and speak for all veterans when I send a big ‘thank you’ to all of the restaurateurs who served free meals to veterans on Monday. I know, that at the place my wife and I dined, we received the finest of service. Again, thanks a lot, really appreciated your service.”
One can only suspect the reason for Obama’s delay of the ACA until 2014 is to bolster the Democrats’ chances at the polls come next November. By then they’ll be singing, “Everything’s Up To Date In Kansas City (Washington)” — whether it is or not. And of course, Dems will believe it.
