G.O.P. Drafts Plan to Give
Obama Discretion on Cuts

New York Times, by Johathan Weisman & Michael D. Shear

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/25/2013 9:47:59 PM

Washington - Congressional Republicans are preparing to counter increasingly dire warnings from President Obama about the impact of automatic budget cuts with a plan to give the administration more flexibility in instituting $85 billion in cuts, a proposal they say could protect the most vital programs while shifting more of the political fallout to the White House. (Snip) “I’m willing to raise revenue. I’m willing to raise $600 billion in new revenue if my Democratic friends would be willing to reform entitlements, and we can fix sequestration together.”

Comments:
The "quote" after (Snip) is from Senator Lindsey Graham (RINO, SC). He blinked last week about Hagel for Secretary of Defense & now, sequestration. When is he finally going to out himself and wear a dress? The dRATS will not let US GOP then question his right to call upon his "feminine side" when playing with the big boys.

Would the stupid Republicans please explain to the public that there are no actual cuts, there are smaller increases...? I have been waiting, but they say nothing of the sort.

I heard an ABC news radio report af few days ago about Obama warning about the dire consequences of sequestration, and they tacked on the end: ´some´ Republicans ´claim´ there are no cuts, just smaller increases to the budget.

I was appalled.

You cannot prevail in a false debate.

The GOP are the stupidest negotiators. They continually cave, now agreeing to tax increases and allowing Obama discretion to make cuts, which he won´t, while Obama just says no. The GOP are political fools. We need replacements.

Angelo Codevilla described the so-called GOP perfectly. They´re a vicious lot. They´ve even turned Republican governors against us now. GOP govs. now spout Boehner platitudes about how we have to give the president his due, etc. This group is a much bigger problem than democrats.

When you have a RINO,out of the loop,supposed republican like little Billy Krystal telling the GOP to cave on national TV,it shows they´re taking advice from conditioned beltway advisers,rather than voters.

This all goes back to the republicans nothaving a decent national spokesman so Obama can just sit back and throw darts at them with no response. Now they´re loking for outreach from Obama who´s in a constant win/win situation and has no reason to make a deal,unless it includes more taxes.

I heard something yesterday about restaurant owners now having to claim employees tips a gratuities as part of their gross income.This has to be an accounting nightmare for owners who are barely staying in business to begin with.

500K is a hell of a lot of money to have to donate to one of Obama´s outside groups slush funds but it´s worth it if you get an Obama carve out on higher taxes or a break on Obamacare. This is an insufferable racket Obama exploits.Its absolutely illegal to use federal property to raise campaign funds on,just like Clinton and the Lincoln bedroom scheme.
Obama could easily be impeached for maleficence in office by simply showing his donors and the federal money they received.Taxpayer money should not be up for sale.

That´s because they aren´t actually stupid. They know full well that if they explain this, they won´t be able to play the game anymore either.

What Your Sleeping Position
Says About Your Relationship

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Peshawar , Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban said Wednesday that they were ending a six-week-old ceasefire but would continue peace talks with the Pakistani government. In a statement emailed to journalists, the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, as the group is formally known, accused the military of torturing prisoners and killing 50 militants during the ceasefire.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Sonoma, Calif. – A woman is facing a possible fine after federal officials say they found a knife inside an enchilada in her bag during security screening at a Northern California airport. Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says the 8 and a-half inch long blade was found Monday at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport. The passenger, who has not been identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn´t know how the knife got into the bag. She was questioned by Sonoma County Sheriff´s deputies, but then cleared to board her flight. Melendez says the TSA

French Lab Loses SARS Vials

A French lab has lost more than 2,000 vials containing fragments of the deadly SARS virus, which killed nearly 800 people in a 2003 epidemic across four continents. The Pasteur Institute in Paris, France announced this week that it realized it was missing the vials and contacted the country’s National Security Agency of Medicines and Health Products to conduct an investigation on April 8, according to a news release. Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville,

Oklahoma bans local wage hikes
Washington Post, by Reid Wilson    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/16/2014 3:53:16 PM     Post Reply
Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation. In recent years, cities and localities across the country have unilaterally

Rev. Al Sharpton’s Easter message:
Politically ‘crucified’ Obama has risen again
Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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

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

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. 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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
