Panetta orders global probe
of military day care centers

Associated Press, by Lolita C. Baldor

Original Article

Posted By:CEP, 12/19/2012 10:16:44 AM

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ordered a worldwide review Tuesday of hiring practices at all U.S. military day care centers after the Army revealed that it discovered problems with security background checks of workers at a Washington-area center. Shortly after the Army said it was launching an investigation of hiring practices at its 283 day care centers worldwide, Panetta´s press secretary, George Little, issued a statement saying Panetta supports the review. Little said Panetta has directed each of the military services to conduct similar reviews. The actions stem from the Sept. 26 arrests of two Army employees

Better they investigate the baby sitters than do any thing about diplomatic security!

Incompetence on a roll!

Hillary, report for duty.

I´m confused. I thought the military was composed of men who are ready to kill and destroy. What has that got to do with day care centers?

That is what I want to know also #4, why are taxpayers paying for this? I was an Army brat and I never heard of something like this, my Mom took care of us while my Dad was deployed etc. Why should taxpayers fund this in the military?

Brought to you by the same government who own your healthcare.

"So, little Tommy, what´d you do while I was deployed to Afghanistan?"
"Oh, my day care teacher beat me up every day."

You people are killng me. Yes, the miiitary needs day care centers. With the current salaries, most families have 2 working parents, in most cases, both of them military. And the centers aren´t free, the fees are rank based, and in some cases, higher than it would cost "on the economy".

And #5, you must be a really old Army brat, when I came on active duty in 1977 there was child care on base.

We are AF and although I did stay home and take care of my own kids, I still used the day care occasionally. My dh was busy defending our country and I did need to go to a doctor or some other appointment without children occasionally.

Military wife here....yes, our local Air Force base has a daycare center and it´s more expensive there than it is in any other daycare in the city. There are also some home daycare businesses on base, but honest to God,I don´t know why they do it. The regs are so ridiculously stringent that I can´t see how a home daycare would pay.

The last poster is right. Why wouldn´t there be some kind of daycare on base?? Last I looked FAMILIES were enlisted along with their active duty member.

You people you are so negative about it, really have no idea what you are talking about.

Yes #9 i am an old army brat, you came on active duty as my husband three years before my husband retired from active duty. I remember people on bases helping each other and families being there to help other families. I also don´t think this is in the pervue of DOD. The taxpayers should not have to fund this, the country is in a fiscal mess"

Still, what´s the connection between men who´s only purpose is to slaughter, maim, and destroy everything they´re told to destroy have to do with wives, babies, and day-care centers. Oh, maybe that´s not what the army´s for any more. I didn´t think about that.

Security Cos that get Govt Contracts are often chosen as being ´minority owned´ and given points for First time Contracts.

Once their contract is over and they might actually know what they are doing, they are often ineligible to renew AND a new inexperienced ´minority´ owned company gets the contract.

Eagle held as ´spy´ by
Lebanon terror group

HAIFA, Israel – Bird-brained terrorists in Lebanon have taken a suspected Israeli spy into custody – an eagle that was outfitted with a transmitter that allowed conservationists to study the raptor’s migratory patterns. In the latest case of Muslim militants seeing a secret agent with wings and a beak, Iranian-backed Hezbollah forces are keeping the eagle under lock and key after it was found by hunters near the town of Ashkout, northeast of Beirut. The bird had a ring around its leg that bore the name ‘Tel Aviv University,’ written in English, as well as a receiver device attached, according to

Wal-Mart (WMT) stores in Springhill and Mansfield, La., saw a stampede and a shelf-clearing rush Saturday after a computer glitch for food stamp recipients led to benefit cards allowing unlimited purchases. Police were called as entire shelves were being cleared out, until the glitch was fixed and low-income residents using the cards were no longer allowed to make purchases.

The 22 children who became ill Thursday after eating lunch at a San Diego school cafeteria made themselves sick on purpose as part of a game, school officials confirmed on Friday. According to San Diego Unified School District spokesman Jack Brandais, a group of students at Audubon Elementary School in the Lomita area were playing a game of “dare” in the cafeteria, urging one another to put different ingredients into their milk to see who could keep the milk down without vomiting. Brandais said the ingredients included hot sauce, salt, pepper, carrots and other vegetables being served at lunch.

Reuters reports Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will resign today: The Los Angeles Times has more: Janet Napolitano, the U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and former governor of Arizona, is being named as the next president of the University of California system, in an unusual choice that brings a national-level politician to a position usually held by an academic. Her appointment also means the 10-campus system will be headed by a woman for the first time in its 145-year history.

HGTV viewers are expressing outrage after the network suggested they use American flags as table cloths for Fourth of July celebrations, calling offensive, un-American and an insult to the American military. “Using an American flag as a table cloth dishonors all Americans who love Old Glory – especially those who gave their lives defending it,” one viewer wrote. “No one dies for a table cloth.”

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.
