How to Fight Income
Inequality: Get Married

Wall Street Journal, by Ari Fleischer

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/12/2014 7:18:01 PM

If President Obama wants to reduce income inequality, he should focus less on redistributing income and more on fighting a major cause of modern poverty: the breakdown of the family. A man mostly raised by a single mother and his grandparents who defied the odds to become president of the United States is just the person to take up the cause. "Marriage inequality" should be at the center of any discussion of why some Americans prosper and others don´t. According to Census Bureau information analyzed by the Beverly LaHaye Institute, among families headed by two married parents in 2012, just 7.5%

To quote Dr. Charles Murray, liberals refuse to preach what they practice. The nuclear family is the best recipe for future success of your children and happiness within a family unit.

Finally someone has the nerve to state the obvious. Marco Rubio was preaching this same thing last week on Special Report, reasoning that a married couple can be a two paycheck family, immediately increasing household income (not to mention cultural benefits of an actual family, imagine that!) Let´s hope this trend of honest talk continues instead of blah-blah-blah !

Top 20%. Married. Working. HS grads.

Bottom 20%. Single. Not working. Non HS

The solution is obvious for the bottom 20.

Leadership: Putting an economic and political squeeze on Moscow over the Ukraine crisis could bring another Obama chicken home to roost — our president killed the U.S. space program and made us dependent on Putin. Since 2011, when America´s space shuttle fleet was retired and our space program was dispersed to various museums, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which proudly put the first human beings, Americans, on the moon some 45 years ago, has largely been fixated on things like monitoring nonexistent climate change and Muslim outreach.

Pope Francis: Church
could support civil unions
CNN, by Daniel Burke    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/5/2014 8:15:45 PM     Post Reply
Pope Francis reaffirmed the Catholic Church´s opposition to gay marriage on Wednesday, but suggested in a newspaper interview that it could support some types of civil unions. The Pope reiterated the church´s longstanding teaching that "marriage is between a man and a woman." However, he said, "We have to look at different cases and evaluate them in their variety." States, for instance, justify civil unions as a way to provide economic security to cohabitating couples, the Pope said in a wide-ranging interview published Wednesday in Corriere della Sera, an Italian daily. State-sanctioned unions are thus driven by the need to ensure rights

Extremism: What could be next in the environmentalists´ catalog of crazy ideas to save the planet? Did someone say a return to 18th Century living? Whoever did would be right. They call it "de-growth," but it would be better described as "insanity." The advocates of this plan want to literally "de-grow" the economy back to what they believe is a "sustainable" level. "There´s no such thing as sustainable growth, not in a country like the U.S.," Worldwatch senior fellow Erik Assadourian told Sierra Magazine. "We have to de-grow our economy, which is obviously not a popular stance to take in a culture

Radical Obama Arms Negotiator Negotiates
Away Nuclear Deterrent Vs. Russia

National Security: As Russia test-fires new, updated ICBMs on the heels of its Ukraine invasion, Obama´s top arms negotiator is busy downsizing and mothballing America´s nuclear arsenal and destroying our deterrent. Thanks to Undersecretary of State Rose Gottemoeller, a left-wing peacenik and old Soviet apologist, Russian strongman Vladimir Putin is inching dangerously closer to first-strike capability. Gottemoeller, a longtime anti-nuke activist, is the architect of the disastrously one-sided 2010 U.S.-Russia New Start deal that slashes America´s nuclear arsenal from 5,000 deployable warheads to just 1,550. In a major concession to Moscow, the deal also limits our development of missile defense

In 1918, the Russian poet Alexander Blok, born into a sophisticated intellectual family, inspired by revolutionary calls for "equality," "fairness" and "social justice," wrote the poems "Twelve" and "The Scythians," glorifying the Russian socialist revolution. The same year he wrote an essay, "Intelligentsia and Revolution," in support of a new central communist government. Two years later, disillusioned, he complained to his friends that he had lost "faith in the wisdom of humanity." In 1921, Blok pleaded for the "freedom of creation." By 1937, covert moles, imbedded in places of work and media, reported any form of insubordination to the Soviet government. About

Scandal: Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner has taken the Fifth once again. But if her actions were just bureaucratic bungling of an awkwardly written law, as President Obama has suggested, she couldn´t incriminate herself. When Lois Lerner on Wednesday clammed up before the House Oversight Committee, as she did last May, ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings of Maryland turned things into a circus. As Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., swiftly brought the now-pointless hearing to a close, Cummings interrupted and went on a shrill tirade against Congress investigating the IRS. Why would the ex-chief of the tax collector´s nonprofit division and her lawyer get

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "tough guy with a thin skin" and said he is "squandering the potential" of Russia with his aggressive posture in Ukraine. "I know we are dealing with a tough guy with a thin skin," she said during a speech at UCLA, citing her experiences with Putin during her time at the State Department. "I know that his political vision is of a greater Russia," she added. "I said when I was still secretary that his goal is to re-Sovietize Russia’s periphery, but in the process he is squandering

In the early days of the American republic, it was common for a secretary of state to become president. Four successive presidents--Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and John Quincy Adams--all served as secretary of state in a predecessor´s cabinet, as did Martin Van Buren. But the only secretary of state to become president since then was James Buchanan, who was elected in 1857 and served until 1861. Many observers expect the tradition to be revived in 2016 should Barack Obama´s first secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, decide to make another bid for the White House. As it was in

WASHINGTON – The U.S. military is boosting its NATO presence in a bid to support the defenses of U.S. allies in Europe in response to Russia´s takeover of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. After Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel first alluded to the effort during testimony on Capitol Hill earlier Wednesday morning, a Defense official confirmed that the U.S. will send six additional F-15s and one KC-135 to "augment the mission" in Baltic countries. The U.S. currently provides four F-15s to what´s known as the Baltic Air Policing rotation. The additional aircraft will be sent from a base in Britain to Siauliai Air Base in

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony. Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.

Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

A shocking poll released Tuesday shows overwhelming majorities of people in Virginia, New York and New Jersey support a national gun registry. The survey released Tuesday was done jointly by Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey and Siena College in New York. It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry. Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns. NRA Spokesman Andrew

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to
