McCain says ‘maybe’ to new
taxes to avert sequestration

Washington Post, by Ed O’Keefe

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/11/2013 3:49:45 PM

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that he is willing to consider supporting new tax revenue as part of a plan to avert $85 billion in looming budget cuts, as the White House pushed back against Republican lawmakers who say President Obama is solely responsible for the spending reductions. McCain made the comments as he once again warned about the adverse effects of the spending reductions, known as sequestration, that will require federal agencies to slash $85 billion in spending by Sept. 30 — including $43 billion at the Pentagon.

It´s enough to make you weep tears of anger and frustration. And this is the same McCain who is working his magic with immigration. God help us all.

He should take a clue from B16: time to retire.

John, for the last time, the left does, did and will always hate you. But they will also use you if they can.
Quit trying to be liked by waivering each time.
It would probably be easier on everyone if you just changed to a D, you vote that way.

What else would you expect from the worst presidential candidate from either party in United States history, perhaps world history.

McCain is married to a wealthy woman...so..if his support of new taxes hurts many Americans.. what will he care?

Even if his family´s taxes go up... he will always have more money left than the rest of us.

When will Republicans ever ever grow a pair of cajones?

Here we go again .. get ready for another Senate "gang", leading to another GOP "cave". Remember all the assurances from the GOP/Boehner apologists who tried to convince us that the GOP would make their stand over the sequester or the continuing resolution? Hey, Charlie Brown: how many times will you trust Lucy to hold the football?

Time for a new party to ultimately replace these GOP liars.

The boat is sinking. Its filling up with water. A dimocrat suggests we drill a hole in the bottom to drain out the water. McCain says, hmm, I better entertain that idea for the media so I don´t sound partisan.

The $85B is just a drop in the bucket. And I don´t care what they say, $43B from the military is another drop in the bucket. They´re using the same game plan, they always want to cut the policeman not the program, the solders not the programs. When you count the budget, black ops, war money and other items, the military is getting well over $700B a year. And they can´t find a measly $43B? Let the sequestration happen.

John McCain - No new taxes. Just say, "No!" Do not give in to the Liberal Democrats. Make a deal. If we can privatize Social Security, then you can put up any new bill you want to give illegal immigrants free social security benefits.
We will save the money for a fence at the border, and then we can stop illegals from working in our country, going to our schools, and getting free health care.
We will let you bring all of the military home from everywhere in the world, if they can stay at Fort Hood, Texas. Heck even kick all the generals out of DC and move them the Pentagon to Texas as well.
Stop giving in to Liberals John McCain, and start fighting for the United States.

For all of you who feel they must flame when we suggest our votes will no longer be cast for Republicans, I wish to point out that i have voted for my Republican Congressman over the last several elections, despite misgivings, but to do the right thing. The result: he voted for cap and trade. Votes to increase national debt. Votes to increase taxes. my income 50% what it was. Voting for him is different than voting for a Dem how? The net result is the same.

Unless these morons get it, they are destined to lose the House in 2014. The only hope is a third party wave blossoms before the destruction is ensured.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

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

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

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
