Smaller crowd, tight security
for 2nd inaugural on Monday

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 1/17/2013 10:06:28 PM

Washington - Less than half the number of inauguration visitors who came out in 2009 are anticipated when President Obama is sworn in for the second time Monday. But that won´t stop security from being just as tight - only this time, with some improvements. And even with the smaller crowd, if you want to get to the National Mall on Inauguration Day, you´re probably better off not driving. The hundreds of thousands of people spilling into the nation's capital Monday are encouraged to travel by rail, bus or bicycle. And no matter what they choose, those watching the inauguration activities

Comments:
Tight security, huh? Will they be using.... *horrors!* GUNS as part of their security?!?

Fun stuff. First go-round, he was the Messiah. Now, anyone with the brains of a magnetized animal cracker knows he´s just the mess...

Hopefully the *next* inauguration won´t that of another con-artist.

On a selfish note, the Monday inaugeral is a break for me because I don´t have to contend with festivities at the my rat infested public school workplace. If the 20th had fallen on a school day the far left administrators would have broadcast the speech to all classrooms. That prospect would have resulted in an out order sign taped to the tv monitor in my lab.

Dairy farmers milk rising
prices and falling costs
Financial Times, by Kate Burgess    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 3/14/2014 10:48:27 AM     Post Reply
“The Farmer will never be happy again; He carries his heart in his boots; For either the rain is destroying his grain Or the drought is destroying his roots.” AP Herbert, English satirist, novelist, law reform activist and independent member of parliament for Oxford university, has been mostly right ever since he penned the verse in 1922. Farmers perennially moan about the miseries of agriculture. Dairy farmers have been among the most vociferous. Not recently, though. (Snip) Feed costs have come down markedly since 2012, when British dairy farmers threatened to pour milk down the drain rather than sell it

   

 

  


 
Sheila Jackson Lee Thinks the Constitution

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old Wednesday on the House floor, which would mean it was signed in 1614. “Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said. That would be seven years after

Portland bar sees trouble in
bottom of cognac glass
Portland Press Herald [Maine], by Ray Routhier    Original Article

Are cognac drinkers troublemakers? That would seem to be the premise behind a Portland bar’s ban on two kinds of cognac – Hennessy and Rémy Martin – as the owners try to convince city officials that they are making the place safer. In a letter to the police department, a lawyer for Sangillo’s Tavern said “the purchase of these liquors was related to detrimental conduct.” Hennessy cognac is heavily marketed to young black drinkers, raising questions about whether the ban has racial overtones. Hennessy has been mentioned in more than a dozen rap and hip-hop songs, and was called “Black

Florida special election results: David

Former White House senior adviser David Alexrod said Wednesday that the lesson to take away from the special election in Florida’s 13th District is that problems with Obamacare motivated the Republican base and that Democrats need to figure out how to fire up theirs — minorities and young people. The problems with Obamacare “motivated the Republican base,” helping carry David Jolly to a victory, Alexrod said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” (Snip) “We didn’t do it in 2010, if we don’t do it in 2014, it’s going to be a very difficult year,” he said.

Middle School Students

Three students were arrested and several others are facing suspension after marijuana edibles were found at a Westminster middle school. A full investigation is underway at Shaw Heights Middle School in Westminster after several students ate marijuana candies and later appeared high in class. A total of 15 students were involved with four students facing expulsion from the school district and 11 others are facing suspension. It all started when teachers noticed a few students acting strangely during class. “At least one of the kids had brought these products to the school and began sharing them with friends,” said Steve

The bullish predictions about the revenue Colorado would accumulate from sales of recreational marijuana may have been quite premature. In February, Governor John Hickenlooper’s budget office estimated that recreational pot shop sales added to medicinal marijuana sales would approach $1 billion in the fiscal year beginning in July. But in January of 2014, Colorado only brought in $2 million from recreational pot shop sales, far short of what would lead to a successful prognosis from Hickenlooper’s budget office. When the sum from recreational pot sales was combined with taxes and fees from medicinal marijuana in

The Lamp of Experience:
Constitutional Amendments Work
American Thinker, by Rob Natelson    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 3/7/2014 10:41:16 AM     Post Reply
Opponents of a Convention of States long argued that there was an unacceptable risk a convention might do too much. It now appears they were mistaken. So they increasingly argue that amendments cannot do enough. The “too much” contention was first promulgated in modern times by apologists for the liberal, ultra-activist Earl Warren/Warren Burger Supreme Court. Specifically, these apologists feared a convention might propose amendments to reverse their favorite judicial decisions. Their tactic was to claim that an amendments convention, even if legally limited, could turn into a "con-con" that disregarded its limits, repealed the Bill of Rights, and restored

Chipotle stirred up the media and guacamole lovers with news that it could "suspend" guacamole from its menu due to global warming. But a restaurant spokesman tells the Los Angeles Times: "This is way overblown." The annual report from the restaurant chain warned: "Increasing weather volatility or other long-term changes in global weather patterns, including any changes associated with global climate change, could have a significant impact on the price or availability of some of our ingredients. ... "In the event of cost increases with respect to one or more of our raw ingredients, we may choose to temporarily suspend

After countless award nominations, including one for an Oscar, many may think that Captain Phillips star Barkhad Abdi had made it. But the truth of the matter is, the 28-year-old is struggling to stay afloat, according to a New Yorker story. Abdi, who played Muse, the leader of the group of Somali pirates who take on Tom Hanks in Paul Greengrass´ film, earned $65,000 for his performance in the $55 million film, but that was more than two years ago. "When Abdi is in Los Angeles to promote the film, he subsists on a per diem, good at the Beverly

Ukraine has increased gas imports from Russia over the last few days, a spokesman for Ukraine´s gas transit monopoly said on Monday, amid warnings that state gas producer Gazprom might scrap a discount on prices. As concerns grow over gas supplies after Russian President Vladimir Putin won parliamentary approval to invade Ukraine, analysts say Kiev is trying to import as much gas as possible at the lower prices. Moscow, enraged with Ukraine´s new pro-EU government, has warned Kiev it could lose the discount it currently gets from Gazprom due to Kiev´s outstanding gas debt. "We doubled our gas imports from

Nearly 100 believe that mission ruined their health. Vic Carter reports a Navy lieutenant from Maryland who can no longer walk is demanding someone take responsibility for what’s happened. (Snip) Now, three years after that exposure, at least 100 of those first responders are suffering from unexplained illnesses like cancer, leukemia, bleeding and hair loss, and they’re blaming it on radiation poisoning from Fukushima.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Monday said Russia had grave doubts about the legitimacy of those in power in Ukraine following President Viktor Yanukovich´s ouster, saying their recognition by some states was an "aberration".

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained. Obama was careful to specify that people who can´t afford Obamacare will not suffer a

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

Nick Rahall trails Republican challenger state Sen. Evan Jenkins by a 54-percent to 40-percent margin. The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

SAN FRANCISCO - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration. "We have a responsibility to those who do not yet have the liberties and the rights that we enjoy," Rice told a cheering crowd at the annual gathering of California Republicans in the San Francisco suburb of Burlingame. "We cannot abandon them ... We were once them." She did not offer a specific policy idea. The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W.

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive.

An interview yesterday offers proof that Sarah Palin has really gotten under Obama’s skin. In the midst of a friendly on-the-air radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, President Obama offered us a rare glimpse inside the presidential mind, revealing how deeply he was stung by the gibes he has received ever since wearing mom jeans when throwing out the first pitch at the 2009 All Star Game. In the midst of a discussion of his recent shopping trip to The Gap, the President stated: “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” (snip) It is quite obvious that the reason the 2009 mockery
