Cut role of feds in local police,
fire and education

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/21/2013 2:01:21 PM

Flanked by state and local police officers and firefighters in full uniform, President Obama predicted Tuesday that even a 1 percent cut in overall government spending would have dire consequences. "Emergency responders like the ones who are here today -- their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded," Obama warned. "Thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off," he continued. "I know that sometimes all this squabbling in Washington seems very abstract, and in the abstract, people like the idea, there must be some spending we can cut,

I certainly agree with the headline. Washington has steadily taken over state and local governments for decades. It has been a very long process with a few strings added every year to erode all local authority.

Homeland Security, the latest major initiative, is now perhaps the largest. But at least they aren´t in the classrooms yet like the DoED.

And when will O start his personal army? Those orgranized thugs he promised would rival our military.

It is well past time to stop militarizing state and local law enforcement.

softly softly can you say -- it seems that only government workers are at risk if sequester is in motion . Since i pay a portion of their salary if they are cut maybe i too can continue to live decently.
The only exemption should be military for our protection and reasonable law enforcement. Teachers to me are not as sacred as they were to citizens of the 18th and 19th century. I have every method at hand to teach myself beyond their imagination.

Where I live, fire fighters, paramedics, police and teachers are paid by the city and/or county, not the feds. It has been this way every where I have lived.

Obama voters do not know any better and the media do not call him on this lie.

I have an idea, WE cut your budget 25%, you figure out where to do the cuts...if you damage our safety or children´s education, YOU will go to prison! How does that work for ya?

Paul Ryan: Immigration legislation
unlikely in ´14
Associated Press, by Philip Elliott    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/2/2014 3:35:32 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— Days after House Republicans unveiled a roadmap for an overhaul of the nation´s broken immigration system, one of its backers said legislation is unlikely to pass during this election year. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said distrust of President Barack Obama runs so deep in the Republican caucus that he´s skeptical the GOP-led House would pass any immigration measure. He said a plan that puts security first could only pass if lawmakers believe the administration would enforce it — an unlikely prospect given Republicans´ deep opposition to Obama. "This isn´t a trust-but-verify, this is a verify-then-trust approach," Ryan said. Last

For decades, Toshiaki Toyoshima has followed the same ritual each morning at his downtown restaurant: He ties on his indigo happi — a short-sleeved Japanese chef´s jacket — and dons a white cap before he begins cutting fish for nearly 500 customers who dine at Sushi Gen daily. But in January, Toyoshima´s tradition-bound routine was upset. He had to add a step: A new law now forces him to snap on a pair of thin vinyl gloves before he can touch the fish. His gloved hands seem to move no less deftly as he stands behind mounds of tuna fillets

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- United Airlines told its employees here today that it will slash around 60 percent of its flights that depart from the city beginning in April in a massive downsizing of what it called its unprofitable Cleveland operation. The reductions were announced in a letter to workers from Jeff Smisek, chairman of United´s board and the airlines´ president and chief executive offer, that was obtained by the Plain Dealer, and confirmed through interviews with United employees at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and with people from the city of Cleveland.

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa.- The handlers for groundhog Punxsutawney Phil say he´s forecasting six more weeks of what already has felt like a brutally long and cold winter. Pennsylvania´s famed groundhog emerged from his lair in front of thousands of fans around daybreak Sunday. Legend has it that if the furry rodent sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another month-and-a-half. If he doesn´t see it, spring will come early. In reality, Phil´s prediction is decided ahead of time by a group called the Inner Circle, whose members don top hats and tuxedos for the annual Groundhog Day ceremony on

WASHINGTON — SO how do you make Monica haunt Hillary’s dreams? That’s what Republicans have been gnawing on, and that’s what not-so-bland Rand Paul was cagey enough to figure out. Fresh from taunting rival Chris Christie as “the king of bacon,” and declaring their feud “water under the bridge,” Paul turned his slingshot at a bigger target, the Big Dog himself, the gallivanting global statesman who is more popular than he has ever been, the master politician who has had to sell President Obama to America only a few years after he so vituperatively tried to turn off America on

Denver´s record-setting quarterback, who threw for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards in leading the Broncos to the AFC´s best record, earned 49 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. New England quarterback Tom Brady got the other vote. Manning won his other MVPs with Indianapolis in 2003, `04, `08 and `09. He also was the runner-up last season to Adrian Peterson.

Iran has received its first installment of $500 million under the nuclear deal struck with the U.S. and five other nations, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said Saturday. The country is set to receive a total of $4.2 billion in frozen assets over the next six months. The deal, which went into effect Jan. 20, also suspends certain sanctions and allows Iran to continue exporting its oil at current levels, for a total of $7 billion. “The first tranche of $500 million was deposited in a Swiss bank account, and everything was done in accordance with the agreement,” Araqchi told

WHEN Woody Allen received a Golden Globe award for lifetime achievement a few weeks ago, there was a lively debate about whether it was appropriate to honor a man who is an artistic giant but also was accused years ago of child molestation. Allen’s defenders correctly note that he denies the allegations, has never been convicted and should be presumed innocent. People weighed in on all sides, but one person who hasn’t been heard out is Dylan Farrow, 28, the writer and artist whom Allen was accused of molesting.

The heir to the British throne, a dedicated environmentalist, accused "powerful groups of deniers" of mounting "a barrage of sheer intimidation" against opponents. He made the comments at a Buckingham Palace awards ceremony on Thursday.

Moody´s rating agency has lowered the outlook for health insurers from stable to negative, blaming ObamaCare. Few Americans will shed tears for insurance companies. But the Moody´s announcement is a warning sign to taxpayers. They´ll be getting clobbered. Section 1342 of the Affordable Care Act forces taxpayers to make insurers whole for most of the losses incurred selling ObamaCare exchange plans through 2016. The bailout is designed to conceal the failure of the president´s signature health law until he is out of office. No one in the Obama administration talked up the advantages of bailing out insurers. It was kept under wraps until

An anonymous establishment operative told left-wing BuzzFeed that the 2016 GOP field, which is considered as strong as 2012´s was weak, has "gotten so bad" from the establishment´s point of view that donors are "looking back fondly on the good old days of 2012." “You know what a lot of them say to me?

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is getting some time in front of the cameras before sitting down to watch the Super Bowl. He´s doing a live interview from the White House with Bill O´Reilly about two hours before kickoff, during the Fox pregame show. The interview comes less than a week after Obama´s State of the Union address, in which he pledged to act to help the middle class if Congress won´t. Obama declined during a recent CNN interview to choose between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks in the title game, saying he didn´t want to offend either city. The White House

If rumours are to be believed, the 21-year marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama has been racked by screaming rows, allegations of infidelity and a string of jealous fights. While the White House has refused to comment on the reports there has been a distinct frostiness in the air between the couple in recent months.

Of course there are aspects of the current Congress that I abhor.

"Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ´08?" Palin wrote. "You joined the ´cool kids´ in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we ´sit down and shut up.´ Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..."

After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove´s three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013. Rove runs Crossroads GPS, American Crossroads, and the Conservative Victory Project Super PAC, which was formed this year to wage war against conservatives. Rove´s two groups raised $325 million in 2012 and about $70 million in 2010. As Politico notes, though, "Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the

World peace? No problem for Tim Tebow. Turns out the Patriots did themselves and Tebow a huge favor by releasing him from his contract before the season. Tebow has cashed in on his #NoContract status with a pair of 30-second commercials for T-Mobile set to air during the Super Bowl. If this one is any indication, the rest of the field will be fighting for second place in the "Best in Show" category. The ad is both creative, funny and incredibly well-produced. Enjoy this slice of Super Bowl ad heaven and God bless.
