Have you ever been robbed? I don´t mean burglarized. I mean robbed -- ambushed by armed men, your valuables taken by force. I have -- in broad daylight in downtown San Francisco -- and that´s what happened to conservatives in the recent national election. We can analyze and rationalize all we want, but the basic act was a crime that took decades to set up and only a day to perpetrate. Hurrying, I rounded a corner and met a "homeless" man looking straight into my eyes holding a knife to my stomach.
The first thing is to stop blaming Romney and any other Republican/Conservative. And stop blaming the voters, because the fact is that the majority of voters wanted Romney, not Obama. If it hadn´t been for the rampant voter fraud, Romney would have won.
We´re sitting in a country thatwas overthrown with a silent coup and nowhave a government that opposes everything traditional America stands for.Our biggest problem is we´re too civilized to do anything serious about it.
To begin with the GOP needs a national go to spokesman who´s an unabashed conservative and can explain why.The republican chairman in SC would be a good place to look and we need to stop picking wimpy RNC chairman like Rince(lather,repeat) Pribus.`
Obama,Reid,Boehner etc. aren´t going to be the ones working out a deal,high powered lobbyists will.The politicians are just front people for the lobbyists and I´ll bet there´s liberal lobbyists that are fighting the tax increases on the so-called rich but they can´t admit it in public which would hurt Obama´s themematics.
Only one side was ever fighting, meaning the left. From the school books, to you name it. To this day, the political class on the right has no interest in saving this country. All they care about is being liked by democrats. They think we are the enemy. The left on the other hand has the following advantages: computerized voting machines, the media, Hollywood, the SEIU, billionaire environmentalists, more Soros funded groups than anyone can count, and are motivated by ideology. We have none of those things. What could we have done if we had even had Candy Crowley or David Gregory? The GOP so-called leadership despises us and publicly humiliates us by telling the NY Times that we have to take our medicine because Obama won. They´ve made it quite clear they have no interest in us. It makes no sense to continue. It´s only going to get worse when Jeb Bush´s book comes out followed by his candidacy.
In the country´s case, the "homeless guy with the knife" is Obama (America is clearly not his home, regardless of where he was actually born). And the other homeless guys with knives are the millions of illegals the Democrats have not only allowed and encouraged to pour across our borders, but who also have been diabolically facilitated and enabled to vote for the other knife holders.
Homeless. Knife-wielding. Armed robbers. A perfect analogy.
And if the Republicans go along to get along and enact "immigration reform", not only are they stupid beyond belief, they should name it the "Homeless Knife-Wielding Robber Invitation Act".
Years ago I had a tall young black kid come up behind me and put a knife to my neck and say ´don´t scream!´ ................
It was 2 pm in the afternoon and I sort of turned to look at him and said ......´what are you trying to do ......don´t you know you could kill somebody that way´? ..........
He took the knife away from my throat, but I still remember how sharp it felt there.
The police caught him but since he as 2 weeks short of his 18th birthday and he had just gotten out of a juvenile institution ...... they never prosecuted him. [to my knowledge my efforts for his prosecution failed]
Philadelphia has one of the worst murder ´clearance´ rates in the country.
I have ofter wondered how many people later in his life he stabbed, slit throats, or killed.
Obama ushered in America’s first large-scale experiment in personality-cult politics. His goal? Creating the U.S.S.A with himself as Dictator with a plan:
Using lies to appeal to the most uneducated segment of society who rely on government handouts—Free Stuff--to function.
Appealing to hard-left progressives and special interests who hate anyone from the middle or right, and believe anyone questioning their Leader must be destroyed.
Wooing women and the 35-and-under crowd, who were never taught about the greatness of America.
Buying union votes with the $447 billion American jobs act that adds a half-trillion dollars in new debt for American taxpayers while reducing our Gross Domestic Product output and pushing our unemployment rate even higher.
Concealing the terrorist murder of four Americans at our diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
Stealing the election.
What can we do? Let Obama and his media cohorts have their way.
Republicans: Do not compromise; let them struggle with their socialism. America is made up of patriots who will not accept tyranny, but in this case, going over the cliff is acceptable if it destroys Obama.
Sure, the economy and culture will collapse, but that may be the impetus needed for us to Take Back America; perhaps as it was done once before: by force.
Do you think if Obama had lost by 300 thousand votes he would have conceded? No. He would have demanded recounts and went to court. This sorry nicey picey candidate Romney will do no such thing. The election was stolen. And the republicans with Ed Gillespie/Karl Rove will do nothing.
I was a business owner and was a victim of an all-too-common armed robbery. I eventually moved far away from such a horrible (Democrat infested) area. Now, I feel like I´m living in a enemy occupied country but have nowhere else to go.
Let me explain something about the robbery, though. As I said, it was common in the area. The perp got about $50 and I was hiding about $1,500. He got what I could afford to lose and no more. That is why my policy now is that while they can steal my taxes to give to cronies and parasites, I won´t hand give anything else to anyone I don´t know personally. No more Ms. Nice Lady.
You must start by identifying the enemy. Who on the RIGHT are leading the defeat? Once we know them by name, we can eliminate them from leadership.
The Tea Party tried to stir up the right, but ran into resistance from the unnamed enemy. The greatest hope for the right is the Tea Party. Time to reenergize. We have the greatest weapon of all - the recall. Organize together and start eliminating the leaders who are unwilling to fight the liberals.
Voter fraud, massive voter fraud occurred this election. If you have 175K+ registered voters AND one person gets 247K+. Swing states reported the majority of problelms If Romney had the spine of Col. West, he would contest this election in Court. There is still time and stop making excuses for "gift buying".
Have been following Bill Whittle´s messages on youtube from the Stratosphere Lounge & his speeches for some much needed sense of calm in looking down the road. Try hearing his take and where we can go from here.
Yes, #17, I also think this election was robbed. In many places ther were 150% of votes, in others 130% and in others 0 votes for Romney. This election should have been contested and investigated. An L-dotter wrote than twice she voted for Romney and the vot came for Obama. Only on the third time the vote wasmcast for her candidate. Romney is too nice and he conceeded too early. Now we have four more years of nightmare.
I wonder how we will be able to live through these four years. What is worse, I suppose they are already preparing the next election the same way. Who is it going to be, Hitlery and Bubba, Moochele?
He´s certainly right about when it happened. Right after WWII and the beginning of the Cold War. It was a concerted effort to bring America down from within. Unfortunately, they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Culturally and morally America is now in shambles. Possibly even unable to come together long enough to win another world war. But we do have gadgets, drugs, porn and Hip-Hop music. And they say we defeated Communism...
Over the last 50 years they have taken over the courts, now packed with liberal judges supporting their agenda.
Over the last 50 years they have taken over the media, on an exponential curve. The government schools, the colleges, the universities - all churning out properly indoctrinated sycophants.
They have created an immigration mess that denies a visa to a Polish Engineer, but grants one to an uneducated Muslim, while allowing a porous southern border to allow tens of millions of uneducated vermin to infest our country, more than half of whom immediately go on the dole, the rest to perpetuate the drug trade. And now they want to grant them amnesty - so they can vote for them.
They steal elections blatantly, lie to the citizens about what´s going on, and have driven this country deeply into debt.
There aren´t enough of us to stop them or even slow them down. They won. Kiss America goodbye.
#2 - Romney is an idiot. You never saw the GOP anywhere near this election, and where´s the GOP in Allen West´s hand to hand combat? The GOP absolutely abandoned us, hung us out to dry and are cackling like old hens over there on First Street
Absent from the field of battle. Hear anything from Boehner during the election?? (crickets)
That said, you are 100% right
We´ve been raped and brutalized and they laugh about it every day in the White House and probably do unspeakable things to the Founding Father´s busts and portraits
Fundamentally, liberals are physical and moral cowards. Most of them avoid military service. Their kids are taught to let schoolyard bullies bully them. If the unspeakable and unthinkable should ever occur, they can be easily subdued. But they´re afraid. They´re afraid that eventually we´ll treat their provocations the way we treated King George and his provocations. This is why they try to incite us to violence, while preaching to us eternally against violence.
I am going to state this,fully aware that I may be castigated, but with the full knowledge of how detested we Christians,pro-life and "turn-the-other-cheek" types most of us are, unless & until the Rs establish once an for all that we revere the US Constitution,the Bill of Rights and remain restrained in our zealous efforts to convince others we´re right, then,well,we´ll always lose.
Our "establashment" R. leaders will always choose the path of least resistance against the non-believers and even the most conservative,ardent members of the Congress never take to the floor and espouse their deeply held views about their religion.
How then are they known by us? We know them by their proposed legislation,their editorials and their public life-styles.
As for the messaging of the pundits,they too are guarded against the ridicule of those who would define them.
On election night I felt robbed of my birthright. The voter fraud in the key districts of the swing states was blatant, but not unexpected by any observant conservative of the last several decades. Yet our GOP “establishment” and candidate appear not to posses the stomach for the final battle of the election by calling out the fraud and demanding recounts. I used to give the GOP the benefit of the doubt by labeling them “the stupid party”, but how long can they be this stupid? Obviously to many of us the only conclusion is they are playing on the same one-world-government team.
Even if there were no fraud, Romney would have won by a small margin. America was given the best candidate for president in decades: A man with the specific skill set for economic problem solving, a man of character and principle guided by a deep faith in God, surrounded by a strong and successful family which is the fruit of a dedicated and loving marriage. America should have voted for this man in numbers that would overcome the fraud. It did not do so. Political solutions are no longer available to us.
The Tea Party Movement’s basic motivating factor was the belief that the Silent Majority of traditional Americans comprised 60-70% of our countrymen. On Election Day we found out that we are not a majority. We are at best 50-50, with conservative philosophy and values being on the wane.
What to do? Some say, “Take over the media! Take over academia! Take over big entertainment!” These calls are not new and to effect the changes will take decades. We just don’t have the time. We are losing our culture because our country, as a whole, has rejected God. America will feel the just consequences of choosing socialism and statism, and those consequences will be a tribulation for all. It is a time for prayer and putting on the Armor of God. Every faithful person will be tested. Resistance to the regime will come to down to each individual, however they decide to affect their non-consent. For me, the time I used to spend in political activities will now be spent in prayer and scripture study. Let me know when the shooting starts.
After only 4+ decades, -2 generations, ´suddenly,´ we find America the Beautiful emersed in an increasingly unrecognizable society which refuses to acknowledge right from wrong. Today´s PC message is ANYTHING goes & laws are, ´made to be broken1?!!´ ...WHAT HAPPENED to America´s discernment between right from wrong?!
We did not invent this world! It was already here, ´´In the beginning...,´´ when human beings arrived and certainly when America´s Founders established this exceptional country! They knew, ´´Absolutes,´´ existed before human beings appeared on this planet and that we must adapt to the absolutes which already exist because they are in place for our benefit. They point the true course to freedom by encouraging us to make right decisions, not the wrong. Absolutes like right & wrong are thus, for our benefit! To deny right from wrong is folly. AMerica´s Founders knew that apart from our Creator we can do nothing. We should learn from our wrong choice, ´mistakes.´
Staist policies seem to be diverting us away from every principle/absolute which has helped secure & achieve the Founders´s goals for the U.S.A. of, ´Life, Liberty, Justice for All,´ and the personal freedom regarding each individual´s Pursuit of Happiness.
´´Right,´´ and ´´wrong,´´ DO still exist! ´´The proof is in the pudding!´´ Our choices of actions as individuals do have consequences! We seem to be losing America´s discernment of right from wrong but, ´character still counts.´ Nations reflect the character of its citizens, eh?
Some of you have not learned the lesson this article is teaching. You are still fighting Romney, Baehner, and other Republicans harder than you are fighting the Democrats.
One of you wants to turn to Newt. Does it make sense to turn to someone who did not seem to understand that because he was not on the ballot in Virginia and in some other states was on the ballot in some counties and not in others that it was mathematically impossible for him to get the nomination? Because neither Gingrich nor Santorum would admit reality and get out Romney had to spend so much money that he had nothing for several months with which to answer Obama´s Bain Capital charges.
Others want Romney to challenge the election. They say he should have the courage of Allen West. I have sent West $100 for his recount fight but it is already lost. If we can´t win in a small District how could we recount miillions of votes? Try to accept reality and stop dreaming. And for the love of heaven, stop the nastiness and infighting.
# 32 is right on. Stop the infighting. The Tea Party , the so called " RINOs " , the moderates and the Ron Paul cadre had better come together pronto and figure out a way to work as one. As the Democrats have done. The Democrats united all their factions. Until all conservatives , libertarians and Republicans can stop the name calling and the antipathy towards each other and recognize that all of us are united in one common goal ( to save America ) the Democrats will continue to roll over us.
Hi folks. A lot of misery, disapointment and sorrow protrayed by above posts. I am a 91 years old military veteran (1942-1972). During three wars I defended our Constitution and way of life. I was honored to do so. Never would I have had the thought that our way of life could be destroyedthe way it has (is) happening. Where are the GOP leaders who should be shouting about the open way R votes were turned into D votes before our eyes? I was called back to vote again, as my R vote was rejected by my ballot not going thru the counter! To me, this is treasonous!!! There are millions of votes that were turned likewise. Not a peep from our leaders. I had a pacemaker inserted in me last week. A sad time for our Country.
Please allow second post: N.M. God Bless you for your service to our Nation in time of war and out. Heard from a recent speech, those who signed on to fight fascism, socialism, communism and dictators did not say they would fight for a tour or a year, they signed on to fight for the duration. Tho this rejection of conservatism may become our 40 years in the desert, I for one will not let my kids or grandkids think that giving in or walking away is an answer to evil knocking on our door.
Grassroots movements like the Tea Party can only accomplish so much. In the end we need leadership that we can rally around. If someone would emerge with the stated aim of rehabbing the Republican brand (I would love to see TV ads running in non-election cycles explaining conservatism and attacking socialism) and who is unafraid to put RINOS in their place, then we might get somewhere.
If disparate groups like tribal blacks, tenured elitist communists, and Hollywood twits can join forces against us, people of character can put aside thier differences temporarily to join against them.
They believe the end justifies any means, and maybe it´s time we played by thier wide open rules. But we need leadership. We are badly in need of a George Washington.
Romney wasn´t quite the man for the job of dealing with the savages we face. How I wish for an Arnold Schwartzkopf.
"I will be pleased to have you visit," read the email that landed in my inbox this spring. It was signed, " Bernard Madoff. "That exchange led to a two-hour meeting in May with the most notorious fraudster on Wall Street, during which Mr. Madoff pointed fingers at others and said his decadeslong Ponzi scheme wasn´t really his fault. He was dismissive of regulators and whistleblowers, calling Harry Markopolos —a fraud investigator who warned the Securities and Exchange Commission about Mr. Madoff—an "idiot." The federal prison in Butner, N.C., looks more like a small college campus than a penitentiary.
LONDON — Scores of flights were delayed or canceled at Britain´s busiest airports Saturday because of a technical problem at a main air traffic control center. National Air Traffic Service, which controls the crowded airspace over England, said it was having a problem switching between nighttime and busier daytime operations at its control center in Swanwick, southern England. Spokeswoman Juliet Kennedy said the glitch was preventing staff opening new control positions to deal with busier daytime traffic, meaning the service was struggling to handle the volume of flights. "At the moment we don´t know when we will be able to
Big Brother may be watching you. But Glenn Greenwald is watching Big Brother. That´s not a bad take on how the 46-year-old constitutional-law attorney turned crusading journalist turned thorn in the side of the NSA might describe his mission. At least in part. Greenwald is doing more than just watching. By combing through the tens of thousands of classified NSA documents leaked to him by Edward Snowden -- and publishing in newspapers around the globe report after report on the secretive agency´s mass-spying activities -- he´s got the whole world watching too.
The Maryland official who directly oversaw the rollout of Maryland’s health insurance exchange resigned Friday amid continuing technical problems that have hampered the state’s online enrollment efforts.After an emergency session Friday night, the board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange accepted the resignation of Rebecca Pearce, its executive director, and thanked her in a statement for working “tirelessly and with tremendous dedication” for more than two years. In recent weeks, the lagging enrollment and online glitches have embarrassed the administration of Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) and become a political liability
Earlier this week, Onyango "Omar" Obama, uncle to Barack, said in a deportation hearing that he stayed with his nephew in Cambridge in the 1980s. The White House had to that point said that the president had never actually met Omar, who was arrested for drunk driving in 2011. Now, two years after the arrest brought denials of any sort of relationship from the White House, the president is admitting that, yes, he briefly lived with his uncle Omar before heading to Harvard Law School in the ´80s. "The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law
Technicians in the Washington area raced up to a month-end deadline set by the Obama administration to make the troubled federal insurance website work for a majority of users, but officials acknowledged they still faced a raft of problems that could take weeks or more to fix. By Saturday evening, technicians completed a major hardware upgrade, adding computing, storage and database capacity to their data center, said one person familiar with the situation. "There was a big install and it worked," the person said. Contractors believe the upgrades will improve the system´s performance and let it handle more visitors, but the person
The once-sleepy town of Williston sits on the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers in the US state of North Dakota. Five years ago, Williston had a population of 12,000 and was slowly dying on its feet – an agricultural hub marked out from the plains only by the grain silos that stand silhouetted against the big North Dakota skies. The fall-out from a brief oil boom in the mid-1980s had left the town with sky-high debts and a main street filled with empty shops and peeling facades. Young people looking for jobs skipped town at the first opportunity. Today, Williston is
The CIA used a secret base at Guantanamo Bay nicknamed ´Penny Lane´ to turn some of al-Qaeda´s most dangerous terrorists into double agents, US officials have admitted.Inmates languishing under Guantanamo Bay´s harsh regime were offered cash rewards, "hotel" style rooms and even pornography if they agreed to help the CIA track down and kill fellow al-Qaeda operatives. Instead of Guantanamo´s spartan cells, they would be transferred to cottages equipped with private kitchens, showers and televisions, as well as their own patio. A handful then signed agreements to work for the CIA, under which they were released and told to hook up once
DALLAS - A winter storm system blamed for at least 10 fatal accidents in the West and Texas threatens to dampen the Thanksgiving holiday for millions of Americans traveling this week.Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were canceled in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Monday due to the weather, spokeswoman Laura Masvidal said, mirroring disruptions at the air hub a day earlier. Some of the country´s busiest airports - New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and Charlotte, N.C. - could see big delays. Icy roads led to hundreds of accidents and at least 10 deaths, half
As he climbed the political heap, a young Barack Obama roused audiences with promises to unite the nation. He was a Senate candidate in 2004 when he told the Democratic national convention, “There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America.” In 2007, he declared early in his presidential run that “I don’t want to pit red America against blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.” A year later, after he won the Iowa caucus, he promised, “We are not a collection of red states and blue
Remember President Barack Obama´s mother? Though the airwaves currently echo with his vow "If you like your plan . . ." I keep remembering Obama´s account of his mother being denied coverage by her insurance company as she lay dying of cancer.The moving and infuriating story was a staple on the 2008 campaign trail. His mother had insurance, he explained, but when she came down with cancer, her insurance company claimed her disease was a "pre-existing condition" and refused to pay for her treatment. In a debate with Sen. John McCain, Obama said: "For my mother to die of cancer
Lawmakers began reacting late Saturday to news of an historic agreement that freezes key parts of Iran´s nuclear program. Here are excerpts from statements responding to the deal: House Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor (R-Va.):"While I await specific details of the interim agreement, I remain concerned that this deal does not adequately halt Iran´s enrichment capabilities. Numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions have called for the full suspension of Iran´s nuclear activities, so it is troubling that this agreement still permits the Iranians to continue enriching. It is critical that distrust but verify be the guiding principle with which we approach
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.
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
