Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead. The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something. I really don’t see how the Source corrected to site style
I just went and scraped off the Romney "Lets Rebuild America" bumper sticker from my car.
We've all been kidding ourselves that we can build anything with so much selfishness holding us back. The parasites have spoken.
Therefore, I am going to be selfish, too. Dems have taken the hard work, generosity, and kindness of conservatives for granted for far too long. It's time they learn that their entitled selves don't have us to ride on. Tell Obama and his minions: We DON'T have your back any more. I'm kicking that saddle off starting today.

We will see in two years. We are bout to to war in the middle east. Syria is exploding. Israel is now alone. I do believe in divine retribution. We are now receiving that. It will get better. but after the scourging.. This is no mandate.
I agree. Time to cut the Jerks off. I am unfriending all libs and any moron who voted for the left. Permanently, including best friend since childhood. Let them rep what they have sown. Nice is over, get out of my way!
Exactly right. No more Mr. Nice Guy. All these liberal artists, actors and business owners can kiss my posterior. I will absolutely not allow my family to subsidize them. When Paul McCartney dissed GW three years ago I stopped listening to Beatles music. The heck with these ingrates.
As for me, I'm keeping my R&R sticker on my car. As time goes by and our beloved country is turned into a banana republic, people will know I did not vote for the dictatorship that is to follow. Small solace in that, eh?
I will be surprised if Rush Limbaugh does not announce his retirement this week.
Why should he keep working to smarten up a nation of schlubs who care more about sports and entertainment celebrities than their own freedom? He fought the good fight every single day but was beaten by a cabal of leftists and party hacks posing as news reporters.
"These strengths had been fading for some time, mainly due to poorly controlled mass immigration and to the march of political correctness. They had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts."
Sad. True. Tragic.
Especially the part about the GOP refusing to fight as a moral force. To do that, you must - must! - identify the enemy as immoral. This is impossible if you grant him the sanction of "good intentions" or "idealism" or "difference of opinion" or whatever smokescreen du jour Democrats demand in order to commit their crimes unpunished.
Sanctioning the Enemedia, by letting them once again host and control the debates (why??!!) is another mistake. The evidence of malpractice against the Enemedia now reaches from here to the moon, yet- no prosecutions??!! Why not??!!
Today, I see little hope, and strategic thinking shifts away from winning elections and toward surviving an electorate hostile toward success.
Those who have not done so already can quit patronizing Hollywood, alphabet news, and liberal newspapers and magazines. Get your news from Rush or Lucianne, but don't pay for it. Liberal TV will melt your brain.
#4 is correct. There will come a judgment on those who have not asked for forgiveness. We cannot expect any less for the abominations our society demands, and celebrates on a daily basis.
This is not our home, we are only passing through.
#5 and #6 - well, now that we've abandoned being America and have turned into Europe, why not give the Obama voters a taste of Europe, and declare a national strike? We'll all walk off our jobs, and head to the welfare offices, telling them we want ours, too. Meanwhile money for Obama voters not to mention goods and services will dry up.
Let's demand that multimillionaire Democrats like Soros and Katie Couric and Steven Spielberg support us. Let's be creative here.
I have been posting for months that Romney would never be president and it was time to plan the rest of your life. In my heart I hoped I was wrong, but in my mind I knew I wasn't. We should make the most of each day. Don't put off the things you really want to do. Each day is going to be a tiny bit worse than the day before. More people will see their lives changed in devastating ways with no hope of recovery, but we have some time. Make the most of it and maybe plan where you will go if we degenerate into a dictatorship. We did get to see the pinnacle of human achievement.
I'm with you about making it personal. I plan to de-friend some Facebook friends today. I don't need folks that air-headed in my circle. And, I so wanted to see the new Lincoln movie. It looks marvelously done, but since it is a Speilberg production, it is off my list!
Just wait until Taxmeggedon hits in January. Zero's cult members won't know what hit them. Wait until Obamacare is fully implemented in 2014. No care is available, nothing but long lines and death. God's protection over the USA is gone. Democrats booed Him at their convention. We get what we deserve.
I think the dems have a lock on the WH for years to come. There is simply no republican anywhere that can beat a dem for the top spot. Face it, Americans want free stuff early an often. We`re living the 60`s all over again. If it feels good do it.
Remember it was the cheap labor loving wimpy Republican business interests who caused mass uncontrolled illegal immigration to get up a head of steam in the first place.
The liberal Democrats now intend to eventually flip the vast majority of those illegal aliens, through incremental amnesty programs and a "path to citizenship" into an overwhelming number of new liberal Democrat voters.
Those factors have now become a growing albatross around the neck of the GOP that no longer will be able to muster up enough voters to win future national elections.
I understand all the bitterness in the posts above. But I don't see how cutting off our personal friends and contacts --because they happen to be Dem voters-- is going to help anything.
I'm a close friend of a retired policeman. He is at heart a good person, but a dyed-in-the-wool Dem and union guy. He hated Romney (called him "Willard"), and mocked Ryan. The Dem's clever, demagogic class-warfare lies were tailor-made for people like him.
Yet he understood how bad Benghazi was. He is pro-gun and pro-military. The next few years will severely test his Dem credentials! I will still be around to gently push him in the right direction.
Reply #12 makes me wonder if they've ever listened to Rush. His demise and retirement was the topic of speculation when Clinton won 2nd term and when Bush won the first one. Begs the comment, ''Oh please!''
All this doom and gloom is very unseemly. Get ahold of yourselves. This fine country has suffered fools and tyrants before: FDR, Wilson, Carter, Benjamin Harry Henderson. Barry O is weak sauce compared to the despotic FDR regime. He tried to pack the Court for goodness sakes. We had to amend the Constiturion as a result of his insaterible list for power. The Obama years will be rough, but the nation will bounce back. Think of these lost years as reparations. After 8 years of reparations we won't owe the blacks a thing. They will have to compete on a level playing field just like all the rest of us. Think of it!
Washington, D.C.—Something quite unexpected happened just hours ago, in the dark of night, during a two-day layover in Washington, DC. My son and I are scheduled to take part in a seminar outside of Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, so we combined our travels to include a side-trip to DC for a business meeting we had previously arranged. It was during this layover that something seemingly ripped from the pages of a spy novel took place. While I was in the middle of a perfectly good and well needed sleep in the very early hours of this morning,
QUINCY – A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so? "It’s frightening, not just weird, but frightening,” said one resident of the Wollaston section. Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. WBZ has learned the FAA knows what’s going on, but the agency isn’t telling. “I mean it is strange. I don’t know if they’re looking for somebody, I have no idea,” one resident told WBZ. It’s not the state Source corrected by Staff.
Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him. Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview. Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart.
CBS News has learned that multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department. The letters make the case for the whistleblowers to be able to share
Barack Obama´s administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal. Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million. That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.
The Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged Tuesday that it released personal information on potentially thousands of farmers and ranchers to environmental groups, following concerns from congressional Republicans and agriculture groups that the release could endanger their safety. According to a document obtained by FoxNews.com, the EPA said “some of the personal information that could have been protected … was released." Though the EPA has already sent out the documents, the agency now says it has since redacted sensitive details and asked the environmental groups to “return the information.” But Sen. John Thune, who originally complained about the release,
Yet another new survey shows that Republican supporters know more about politics and political history than Democrats. On eight of 13 questions about politics, Republicans outscored Democrats by an average of 18 percentage points, according to a new Pew survey titled “Partisan Differences in Knowledge.” The Pew survey adds to a wave of surveys and studies showing that GOP-sympathizers are better informed, more intellectually consistent, more open-minded, more empathetic and more receptive to criticism than their fellow Americans who support the Democratic Party. “Republicans fare substantially better than Democrats on several questions in the survey,
James Holmes, the gunman behind the Dark Knight massacre in Colorado last July, has reportedly turned Muslim and prays five times a day. The killer showed off a lengthy, thick beard during a court appearance earlier this month, and a prison source has claimed it is a symbol of his new-found faith. The source said Holmes has turned to Islam as a way of justifying his horrific murder spree in an Aurora, Colorado cinema on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded. ´He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his
A presidential ethics panel has opened the door to testing an anthrax vaccine on children as young as infants, bringing an angry response from critics who say the children would be guinea pigs in a study that would never help them and might harm them. The report, however, released on Tuesday by the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, said researchers would have to overcome numerous hurdles before launching an anthrax-vaccine trial in children. It now goes to Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who will decide whether to
New Pope Francis I is a conservative in the mold of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II. That’s especially true on the issue of abortion, which he called a “death sentence” for the unborn in 2007. “We aren’t in agreement with the death penalty,” he said during that speech, “but in Argentina we have the death penalty. A child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.” In his writings, Francis wrote, “we should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence,’ that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion
Democrats were overjoyed when George W. Bush left office in January of 2009. Obama had promised to end Bush´s hawkish foreign policy and the "war on terror´s" detention and interrogation regime. But in the beginning of his fifth year as president, Obama´s record has been surprisingly similar to his predecessor´s in those areas. 1. Democrats fought George W. Bush’s troop surge in Iraq in 2006. Obama copied it in Afghanistan in 2009. You would think Democrats would react the same way they did to Bush´s surge policy. But they were really more like
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama today walked away from a roomful of journalists, leaving Jay Carney to evade numerous media questions about the administration’s semi-secret, closed-door process of killing American citizens who are tied to jihad. The numerous questions were prompted by the release late Monday of the administration’s legal brief explaining why it has the legal and presidential authority to kill overseas Americans in al-Qaida, even without a trial or public due process. “I think you’ve seen in the way that this president
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by

Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
