John Boehner: ´The House has done its
part to avert this entire fiscal cliff´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/22/2012 9:17:55 AM

As you know, unless President Obama and Congress take action, tax rates will go up on every American on January 1st. The day after that, a mandatory ‘sequester’ will go into effect that will implement harmful cuts to our national defense. That is currently the law of the land. The House has done its part to avert this entire fiscal cliff.

Boehner failed as a negotiator. He got "bracketed"(experienced negotiators will know the term). Cutting spending never made it to the table. The entire discussion was about raising taxes. Played right into Obama´s hand.

Boehner has to go. He has no leadership skills.

Should have just offered 1 bill with 1 item - raising the top two tax rate levels.

Nothing else.

And expose the Democrat lie that it would solve our deficit problems.

Then, work on the other parts piece by piece.

Demanding the Democrats to explain how they expect to close the yearly deficit.

You see, the low-information voter and the MSM don´t correlate the yearly deficit to the national debt.

And Republicans need to stop trying to "do the right thing" by fixing all the problems which will only end up being blamed on them for cutting this and cutting that.

And point out how X program is expected to get Y amount increase, but the democrats are wanting more.
(we are increasing the program by 4% but the democrats are demanding 6%)

Lastly, state how gov´t programs need to become more effecient, more effective and more productive which will help reduce the rate of growth and impact.(that will get a lot of people excited).

Boehner should be replaced. Either let the Democrats raise taxes and let them them own it, or fight hard and no compromise. This in between pandering is letting the liberals beat the stuffing out of us in the media, protecting the rich and all that garbage.

I´m sorry but Boehner is a certified "bone head!" He is past his "best if used by date." Replace him in January and hopefully he will do the honorable thing and resign from the House....

Sanity requires Boehnor to bow out and put someone else not made of Jello in the role of speaker - Allen West for example.

We are about to see what a "good man" Boehner is if he is challenged for the Speaker´s gavel. He has been outfoxed by Obama at every turn. Results are what matter not good intentions. It does no good to deny the truth. If he has any honor, any honor at all, he will not fight it and give this important job to a LEADER. The country is in way too much trouble to be playing around worrying about hurt feelings.

A friend has a good and simple measure for determining meaningful control of the federal budget and real cuts..the value of real estate in DC area will fall at least 25%. Until you see that, the looting is continuing and the laws and regs used for personal gain and destroying the competition.

No government spending can happen without approval of the House of Representatives. It is high time the house started exercising its authority to cut spending to somewhere below revenue levels.

I really believe that in spite of what Obama says, he wants taxes to go up for everyone and he wants to gut the military. He seems to be getting his wish.

Whatever, L-dotters. If taxes are to go up, they should go up on EVERYONE.
Besides, as someone to the right of Limbaugh I am here to say that the sequesters DO NOT gut the military.
Over the cliff we go! Increases in taxes and spending cuts will be the result which is EXACTLY what everyone has been saying we need.

A bill was passed by the House in August and sent to the Senate. Reid has ignored it. The ball is in Reid´s court.

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
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/15/2014 9:20:54 AM     Post Reply
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?

GOP: Not just equal pay,
equal opportunities
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

It was really just a matter of time until Kathleen Sebelius was looking up at the Obama bus passing over her bureaucratic body. On April Fool´s Day when President Obama attempted his ObamaCare victory lap with unsubstantiated enrollment numbers and failed to mention Sebelius even once, her fate was sealed.Obama is not known as Mr. Gratitude by anyone. But staring right at Sebelius in the front row of the Rose Garden and praising only Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin, of all people, for the trumped-up success of ObamaCare and not even mentioning his Health and Human Services secretary after five years of tough, loyal duty was

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
