Touching photo of 3-year-old girl
saluting her father goodbye before
his 9-month deployment to Afghanistan

Daily Mail [UK], by Leslie Larson

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/8/2013 5:20:21 AM

The photo of an adorable toddler saluting her father as he prepared to leave on his nine-month deployment to Afghanistan has touched the hearts of people across the country. Daniella Moen, 3, wanted to be like all the other soldiers who joined her dad, U.S. Army Chaplain Captain Dan Moen, when the national anthem played at his farewell ceremony at Fort Drum, NY on January 11. The girl´s mother, Sasha, was on hand to capture the tender photograph, which has gone viral and become an inspiration to the thousands of military families waiting for their loved ones to come home.

Comments:
When a haunting photo like this goes viral you realize there is still hope for humanity. (I have to add "not O-style hope"--how despicable that the creature in the White House has tainted the beautiful meaning of the word.)

These amazing men and women deserve our daily prayers for their protection. Dear God, bring them all home safely to their loved ones.
I now have to ask why. Why are we still risking our treasure when it is obvious that we have NO intention of winning this struggle against Islamonutjobs?

What´s shocking is that the Army still has chaplains. I´d have thought only immams were allowed.

Why is it that most of the important news about the USA comes from either Britain or Canada? Here in the USA we get what the kardashians are doing or the latest foolishness of the first lady.

Catfish oversight, weather radios
and a Christmas tree tax: Meet the
pork-filled $956 BILLION Farm Bill
Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 2/7/2014 8:11:48 PM     Post Reply
The federal government pays for a $15 million ´wool trust fund,´ runs a $170 million program to protect catfish growers from overseas competition, sets aside $3 million to promote Christmas trees, funds another $2 million to help farmers sell more sheep, and plunks down $100 million researching how to get Americans to buy more maple syrup. And that spending is just three one-hundredths of one per cent of the Farm Bill that President Barack Obama signed Friday in Michigan. Liberal and conservative watchdogs alike are hopping mad at what they say are pork-barrel projects included in the five-year agriculture spending

The White House has been put on lockdwon after an unidentified man was caught trying to jump the fence Friday afternoon. Secret Service officers apprehended the suspect and he is now in custody. The man was said to be carrying two large bags but the agency has not released any further information about the incident. They stressed to NBC News that they are not especially worried about the bags now that the man is in custody but they are following standard protocol. That included a call to Washington´s Metro Police Department´s Explosive Ordinance Division and they are said to be investigating the bags

Hand over the gold: Olympic medal

The White House doesn´t like it, and neither does a prominent Senate Republican, but Olympic athletes who win medals in Sochi will have to pay federal income taxes on their cash bonuses. The U.S. Olympic Committee awards $25,000 for each gold medal, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. But top athletes who are in the top income tax bracket , 39.6 per cent, will have to fork over as much as $9,900 of a gold medal payout.

Canada proposes citizenship changes

The Canadian government has proposed sweeping changes to its rules on citizenship. Under the plans, Canada would be able to revoke citizenship from dual nationals who have been convicted of terrorism, spying or high treason. Applicants would also have to pass a knowledge test and have proficiency in English or French. Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said citizenship should not be simply a "passport of convenience". [Snip] Other proposals for new applicants include having to wait six years to apply for Canadian citizenship instead of the current four.

Earliest human footprints outside Africa

The earliest footprints left by humans outside Africa have been found in estuary mud in Norfolk. Described as the most important discovery on British shores, the 800,000-year-old footprints were found in Happisburgh after being exposed by sea tides. Scientists believe the footprints are evidence of the earliest known humans in northern Europe, previously only revealed through the discovery of animal bones and stone tools. The footprint surface was exposed at low tide as heavy seas removed the beach sands to reveal a series of elongated hollows cut into compacted silts. Of the 50 footprints found, only around twelve were reasonably

Taxpayers hit for MILLIONS as six

Cash-strapped counties in six states are enrolling inmates in Obamacare health insurance plans as a way to shift costs to the federal government--a tactic that´s legal but frustrating for some Republicans who don´t want to see the success levels of President Obama´s signature law inflated artificially. In many cases jails are registering inmates so they´ll be better equipped to access addiction counseling and psychiatric care after their release, lowering the likelihood that they´ll return for more time behind bars. The Affordable Care Act prohibits the enrollment of full-time prisoners serving sentences, but many prisoners awaiting trial in prison jumpsuits are

Watch out for the second machine age--it’s about to eat your job, and your income. It’s also destined to shake systems of government and taxation to their very foundations. [Snip] With the miners, it was rival energy sources; with Mr Crow and his followers, it is the rise of the intelligent machines. Rapid technological change is steadily gobbling up their livelihood.

Ukraine crisis: Putin adviser

A senior adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the US of meddling in Ukraine, in breach of a 1994 agreement over non-intervention. Sergei Glazyev said the US was spending $20m (£12.3m; 14.8m euros) a week on Ukrainian opposition groups, supplying "rebels" with arms among other things. (Snip) Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is due to meet Mr Putin on Friday in Sochi, on the opening day of the Winter Olympic Games there. He held talks in Kiev with US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland on Thursday, at which he said he favoured dialogue and compromise with the opposition.

Sochi terror threat shows the truly

When, during the early phase of Syria´s brutal civil war, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the West against undertaking military intervention in Syria, his arguments were dismissed as nothing more than a blatant attempt to save the Assad regime, Moscow´s long-standing regional ally. But now that, on the eve of tomorrow´s opening ceremony at the Sochi Olympics, American intelligence agencies are warning that terror cells are planning to blow up airliners bound for the Olympics with explosives hidden in toothpaste, the Russian president´s warnings do not look so far-fetched after all.

Albert Edwards from Societe Generale has returned from two weeks holiday in a completely foul mood. "The ongoing emerging market debacle will be less contained than sub-prime ultimately proved to be. The simple fact is that US and global profits growth have reached tipping point and the unfolding EM crisis will push global profits and thereafter the global economy into deep recession."

Well, fancy that. A study by Capital Economics (an organisation which won the Wolfson Prize, no less, in 2012), has concluded that the average Dutch household could be £8000 per year better off, and that the national income would grow if Netherlands left the EU.

GPs revolt on patient records:
Growing anger at NHS plan

Growing numbers of GPs are joining a rebellion against an NHS scheme to harvest millions of medical records. Unless patients object, officials will start to extract confidential data from their files next month. The information will be used to improve care and assist research work, health chiefs say. But some family doctors fear the data will be misused by insurers and businesses. At least four GPs--with thousands of patients between them--are defying orders to hand over their patients’ records. Many more are known to share their concerns. [Snip] In an article in today’s Mail, he compares these ‘bullying’ tactics to those used

President Barack Obama went one-on-one with NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas in an interview before the Winter Olympics opening ceremony aired for the primetime audience in the U.S. Obama — a tired-looking Obama, we should add — talked to Costas from the White House, not from Sochi (the interview was recorded Thursday). Costas addressed that in his first question to the president. Why didn´t he attend the Olympics? And why didn´t the vice president, the first lady or any other high-ranking members of the president´s cabinet? Obama´s response: Unfortunately, I haven´t had a chance to go to the Olympics since

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer. I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan

Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread. As the Associated Press reports, school officials are apologizing because that was a really, really horrible idea. The school´s principal wrote a letter to parents, who were offended, and said the school doesn´t "perpetrate racial stereotypes." Unfortunately, that´s exactly what they did. In honor of Black History Month, we´d like to explain exactly why your fried chicken and watermelon lunch is ill-advised, with the hope that people will find better ways to honor this

Geraldo Rivera took on Bill O’Reilly Friday night over whether O’Reilly was disrespectful to President Obama in their big Super Bowl interview. Rivera gave O’Reilly some benefit of the doubt, but other than that thought O’Reilly was a bit too confrontational and didn’t give Obama the kind of respect a president normally deserves. Rivera argued it was less like an interview and more like a meeting of the minds with the “President of Most of the White Guys of America” (O’Reilly) against the president of the rest of the country, and told O’Reilly that it was out of line for him

There´s been a lot of blathering about who the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is, and so far I´ve resisted taking part. But I guess I´m kind of curious: Is there much of a case to be made for anyone other than Paul Ryan? On the substantive side, Ryan sure seems like he´s setting himself up for a run. There´s his steady series of "unheralded" anti-poverty outreach trips that always manage to be just heralded enough to get sympathetic press coverage. He brokered a budget deal with Patty Murray that was businesslike and low-drama but didn´t alienate the tea

Asked by host Gregg Jarrett to address the president’s declining to label Benghazi an “an act of terror” immediately following the siege, Williams responded that “At this point, it’s a political football… that I think people are keeping alike to hector Hillary Clinton.” Later on, Jarrett asked whether it was “undignified” and “embarrassing” of the president, during his pre-Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly, to “blame the the Fox News Channel for the Benghazi

But now parents have hit out at popular must-have toy the Furby Boom after it emerged that some of the creatures have developed “inappropriate” second personalities which have upset their children.

The former Russian figure skater that lit the Olympic flame during the Sochi opening ceremony has deleted a racist photo of President and Mrs Obama that she had previously posted. Irina Rodnina is a triple Olympic champion figure skater and is close with Russian President Vladimir Putin so it came as little surprise that she was chosen to be one of the two athletes to have the key role in the opening ceremony. A scouring of her Twitter account by The Guardian found that she had posted a photo of Mr and Mrs Obama looking at someone who was holding
