Scaled-Back Inauguration
Loses its Appeal

Wall Street Journal, by Elizabeth Williamson

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 1/6/2013 11:56:46 AM

Washington--President Barack Obama´s public swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 21 is prompting a different kind of oath within the capital´s tourism industry, as the prospect of disappointing attendance threatens to dent spending on all manner of travel goods and services, from luxury hotel suites to servings of the president´s favorite chili. Mr. Obama´s 2009 inauguration drew an estimated 1.8 million people to Washington, more than any other gathering on the National Mall, according to officials at Destination D.C., the city´s main tourism and convention marketer.

Two inaugural balls instead of ten? The strain of all that smiling!

There will be a long, downward slide during his second term. Even his pigford allies are going to wake up before it is over. The people he has harmed the most are his bruthas and sistahs.

Google the title and you will find at least one site you can read it on. Nothing new however than what you have already read in slightly different words. The Inauguration is shaping up to be a colossal bust. Like less than a third of the numbers from four years ago. Or less.

This is pretty much in keeping with the poor attendance at his campaign rallies, which were in contrast to the huge turn-outs at Romney’s events. It all supports the notion of massive voter fraud, but then, who are we to believe, the election officials or our lying eyes?

Just pass out some Mad Dog to the locals and they´ll show up in droves. Obama will tap the WH account to bus people in rather tha nbe embarrassed by a small turnout but that doesn´t help the local businesses.It´s kind of ironic that the local businesses will suffer at his inauguration. It just about says it all.

For all we know the private swearing in might exclude upholding the Constitution,not that he cares about breaking an oath of office.

After a tax payer funded $7 million vacation maybe he should scale way back. Maybe just him and the immediate family, one woman to represent the fake birth control voters, one baby mama to represent the "give me more free stuff" crowd, one low IQ voter to represent a great number of voters, someone to represent the idiots who think health care will be free, etc. Go ahead and add your own favorite guest.

How sad to have a party and no one comes!

Obama has overplayed his hand and he will soon find out that this country is not on his side. We are still a nation of good people who love God, family, country! In that order we are strong in our Faith, honoring Jesus, Who sets US free!

Continue praying for our President, that he finally "knows" who he is, an ordinary man extended extraordinary responsibilty to lead this country, to live according to God´s will/way, thus establishing US as God´s country, not Obama´s.

Obama needs to discontinue his use of the words "Me, I". He is only the standard bearer, not the standard. God is still in control.

We all need to get on our knees, submitted to true authority that comes from God.

Obama has sought to usurp God´s power, thus declaring a war between him and God. He needs to repent/change/accept God as His true Savior/Lord.

Our responsibility is to pray for all our leaders, that they would honor God, live lives of truth, ever more concerned by US than themselves.

Daily present President Obama to God´s Throne of Grace, there to leave Him, for God, in His Love/Mercy/Grace, will do what we cannot - change him! Amen

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
