72 Percent of Republicans
Fear New Year

U.S. News & World Report, by Kenneth T. Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/24/2012 3:12:18 PM

For Republicans, it may be the season to be jolly, but not optimistic. Seventy-two percent of Republicans are fearful about their future in 2013, and 79 percent fear for the world, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. This is a substantial increase in GOP gloom since 2006, when only 20 percent said they were fearful about their personal future during the Republican presidency of George W. Bush. Fifty-four percent of Republicans were fearful about their personal prospects after Democrat Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008. In contrast, three-quarters of Democrats

I´m no longer a republican. I´m an American (as opposed to ???-american), love this country and I´ll be praying hard. In the words of a famous and brave man...."let´s roll".

Well, yes. They have a clue. Democrats don´t.

And the most obnoxious thing is that when it all goes to heck, Republicans will be blamed.

Could be that we knew that GW loved this country and his fellow man. This ´thing´ we have in the WH is a mooslim goon. The goon is on vacation - we can only hope that a shark or octopus will miss not miss.

Marxist Goon more like it.

Democrats will suffer more than Republicans during Obama´s Reign of terror. They are already out of work and can´t find jobs. Wait until the economy collapses and Nero will be playing golf.

When George Bush was re-elected, there was not much Republican gloating, and some democrat celebrities threatened to move out of the country but did not follow through. Their fear was merely posing.

This time around, I have spoken with a great many Conservatives and Republicans who are genuinely saddened and fearful for their personal situation and for the Country. It is not faked; it is actual, real fear.

It is real fear. I fear the government more than any time in my life. I fear the morons that elected Bronco Bamma again. I never thought I needed a gun, but fortunately in my state I can get a concealed carry permit. I am reconsidering my position very seriously this Christmas season. This seems to be the time the Libs want to double down on taking away our rights. Too bad they won´t take away my fears.

The people tearing down this country are suicidally insane on a grand scale. They think to gain ultimate power, but all they will do is destroy the very nation that gave them so much. Destruction is easy. It is building that is hard. Don´t fear them. Seek to sidestep their evil as best you can. If they bankrupt coal, use wood. Each of us lives and dies, and none knows how long we have. We must do our best to make a positive difference in our own families and at local and state levels. Use the gifts God gave us until he calls us home.

First, the photo of the Delusional One makes reading the article very difficult. 4 more years of these photos is cruel & unusual punishment.

What´s interesting in survey are these two findings:

1. . More than three-quarters say the economy is still in a recession.

2. Yet..."55 percent are optimistic about the policies of President Obama in his second term".

If 4 years of Obama´s policies still have most people thinking that we are in recession that ended in 6/09, why do so many feel optimistic now?

I had four combat tours in Vietnam. I put on my boots, picked up my rifle and went out to face the enemy to save America from Communism. I´m now 74 years old, and I believe I will have to do it again. Right here at home. Happy New Year.

The Republican Party is the ordinary people--NOT the politicians or party bosses. The principles of the party have not changed. The pols have. The problem is we stopped caring. We let others choose the direction of the party and we don´t hold our reps accountable. It is our fault for continuing to let others decide and for voting for the same professional politicians over and over again. A new party? We´d just do the same thing again.

I will stand up and tell anyone anytime/any day that I am proud to be an American.

Am I concerned about the future?? Yes, absolutely, but you know, we haven´t had a true crisis here since WW II and more recently the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. And 9/11 - May God rest their souls. I was old enough to understand the Cuban missile crisis. Now THAT was something to worry about. 9/11 will be in-grained in me forever, another story for another time.

While it should not be so, perhaps those who have not/cannot see the proper way forward need a soul-searching experience to wake up and see what is happening. Or they see what is happening and glad to see it.

We need to get past this fear thing fast and fix what is wrong with Amerika. Sitting back in fear is just what the left is hoping we will do. Time to snap out of it. What do you say, folks?

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud
Tampa Tribune [FL], by Michelle Bearden & Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 1:30:26 PM     Post Reply
CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado´s ´Hot Jesus´:

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force. "People are in that head-space and in that heart-space. It´s that time of the year where people are much more reflective and much more open to connecting with

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

White House blames fox for

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.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

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

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

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less
