Boehner: Looming defense cuts
threaten our national security

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 11/10/2012 10:04:18 AM

Weekly Republican Remarks by House Speaker John Boehner: This week, I called for action by both parties on a plan to help our economy grow and create jobs, which is critical to solving our debt. It’s also critical to averting the so-called fiscal cliff, a combination of automatic spending cuts and tax rate increases that’s just weeks away from taking effect. Some have said that despite the risks, we should let our nation’s economy go off part of the fiscal cliff in January, by allowing the top two rates to rise. They believe that doing that will generate more revenue for the federal government.

While Boehner may genuinely desire that our national security not be weakened, that desire is diametrically opposed to Obama´s. Obama could care less about anybody´s security but his own, thus he has no reason to give in to any republican demands. If somebody has to blink, it will never be Obama. Whether the republicans do remains to be seen.

Glad to see that someone finally woke up Boehner from the tanning booth.

IT IS OVER!
There is now a 1-to-1 ratio, earners-to-takers. Just the unfunded liabilities of the Social Security Ponzi scheme will overwhelm any amount of prosperity, so it´s a joke to think it won´t swamp the economy that results from Zero´s pitiful policies.
If you live in a blue state, and are not stocking up on guns and ammo, you will end up like a police car at an Occupy Wall Street rally.

I believe that I will be in the minority here, but for a number of reasons, defense should be cut. It has become to much of an apparatus for political patronage. Doubt that cutting it will help that aspect. though.

I would worry if I lived in a big urban environment. Those are the ones that will collapse first when the money runs out. You can see it now in a small way in NYC, etc. Wait until real austerity hits and the checks are reduced or stopped.

Better buy another thousand rounds for your AR-15 or AK-47. A shotgun is also handy not only for home defense but hunting everything from small birds to deer. A real multi-tasker.

The Taurus Judge allows you to shoot both .410 shotgun shells and .45 Long Colt in the same handy, traditional "Revolver" format.

It amounts to a sawed-off shotgun (street-sweeper) that is highly effective when things get testy at close quarters. Like...say....at your front door.

#8 - I hope that their quality has improved. It seems that when they first came out that the barrel had been machined with a hammer and chisel. I do love the concept, though.

I´m not sure I would agree with #4 on details.

But we might, just might, agree that the greatest problems for America are now in America and not overseas.

And bombing a few more places and again sending thousands of troops here and there isn´t going to fix much.

Too bad that Boehner, Obama, and the whole regime in Washington won´t either. The Imperial City is doing fine. The troubles of the rest of the nation mean nothing there.

Pubbies will do what they do best- they will surrender and meekly agree to cooperate with the rest of the forced rape of America. After all, this is the government the people have elected. Now, the pubbies needs to get on with letting the rats have their meal of constitutional flesh. Let the next four years bergin. The only way these idiots will ever wake up- these moron voters we have, is to let the Democrats do all they will and do it quickly. Only buy suffering through their own choices can idiots be made to realize their mistakes. What little is left of the rubble that once was The United States of America will have to be rebuilt later- Into what? That is the question of the century. Probably it will resemble something like modern day Italy.

I’m Senator Lamar Alexander. Have you ever read something so obviously right that it made you wish you’d written it? That happened to me the other day reading Newt Gingrich’s book ‘Breakout.’ Newt was quoting technology expert Tim O’Reilly, who was talking about the way the government should operate in the internet age. O’Reilly was saying this: “The best way for government to operate is to figure out what kinds of things are enablers of society and then make investments in those things. The same way that Apple figured out, ‘If we turn the iPhone into a platform, outside developers will bring hundreds of thousands of applications to the

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Illinois Dems to offer $100 million in

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:
The stakes go far beyond cattle

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

The impending death of Archie

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
