NM Proposes Sale of
National Historic Landmark

Albuquerque, NM - A Western outpost made famous by the Buffalo Soldiers and the U.S. military´s campaign to capture Geronimo is up for sale, one of a number of landmarks nationwide facing the wrecking ball amid tight budgets and a shift in Washington about what history is worth saving. Abandoned now, Fort Bayard has become a drain on New Mexico´s coffers and the state is desperate for ideas as historic preservation has lost funding under the Obama administration. "It´s not good. We see this as a much larger comment on how we as a country want to tell our story and reflect

Wasn´t the Buffalo soldiers mainly blacks? Barry & the demonrats are racist.

A lot of these "historic sites" that the federal and state governments sink tax dollars into could be operated by a special interest group.

Case in point: Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington is operated by the Mount Vernon Ladies´ Association, a private, non-profit organization (501c3). They do a tremendous job, much better than the government could do.

McConnell´s surprise debt limit vote
may help not hurt reelection bid
Washington Examiner [DC], by Susan Ferrechio    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 2/14/2014 6:10:33 AM     Post Reply
There was an audible gasp in the Senate gallery this week when Minority Leader Mitch McConnell voted “aye” to cut off a potential GOP filibuster of critical legislation to raise the $17.2 trillion debt ceiling. A long-time opponent of raising the nation’s borrowing limit without reining in costs elsewhere in the budget, McConnell, R-Ky., was expected to vote “no,” but instead played a critical role in ensuring its passage. He’s not only a fiscal conservative, but McConnell is also facing a Tea-Party backed primary opponent, making his support of the legislation not only a surprise, but a potential political risk. But McConnell´s move

Could ancient earthquake

The authenticity of the Shroud of Turin has been in question for centuries and scientific investigations over the last few decades have only seemed to muddle the debate. Is the revered cloth a miracle or an elaborate hoax? Now, a study claims neutron emissions from an ancient earthquake that rocked Jerusalem could have created the iconic image, as well as messed up the radiocarbon levels that later suggested the shroud was a medieval forgery. But other scientists say this newly proposed premise leaves some major questions unanswered. The Shroud of Turin, which bears a faint image of a man´s face and torso,

Behind the White House´s Health-Law Dodges

When President Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in March 2012 that "after my election I have more flexibility," most assumed he was referring to foreign policy. It turns out Mr. Obama´s ambitions weren´t so limited. Earlier this week, Mr. Obama demonstrated his imperial flexibility again, delaying another important provision of the Affordable Care Act. For firms with 50-99 employees, the president waived until 2016 the requirement they provide health insurance or pay a fine. Also, companies with 100 or more workers can avoid most of the law´s penalties if they provide coverage to at least 75% of their workforce. The

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Paula Deen has found a key ingredient to bringing some sizzle back to her career — a cash infusion worth at least $75 million from a private investment firm. The Savannah-based celebrity cook announced Wednesday that she’s launched an umbrella company that will oversee her restaurants, cookbooks, product endorsements and other remaining slices of her media empire. The new company, called Paula Deen Ventures, said private-equity firm Najafi Companies is investing $75 million to $100 million to help Deen make a comeback. Deen’s fortunes took a dive last year after comments she made under oath during proceedings in

There´s no way Comcast
will buy Time Warner Cable

Posted By: MissMolly- 2/13/2014 5:21:09 AM     Post Reply
C omcast is proposing to buy rival Time Warner Cable for $45 billion, combining the No. 1 and No. 2 cable TV providers in the country. The all-stock deal needs approval from each company´s board of directors — reportedly a done deal — the Justice Department´s antitrust division, and the Federal Communications Commission. The deal isn´t going to happen. Not in any recognizable form. First, here´s the argument for why it might: Comcast has 22 million pay-TV subscribers and TWC has 11 million, a number it has already suggested it could shave by 3 million under the deal. That would give the combined

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford routinely roomed overnight in hotels and a Chicago apartment with a low-level treasurer´s office employee whom he has given a 50 percent pay hike, raising questions about the workplace judgment of the Republican candidate for governor. Rutherford said he has shared a room with his executive assistant, Joshua Lanning, scores of times since taking office in 2011, a practice he says is a way to save money for his campaign fund. "We double-bunk in the campaign," Rutherford said. "We always double-bunk when we can. Totally as a cost-saving measure." Several human resources experts said superiors should avoid sharing a

When Obama Rewrites Obamacare,

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

The Obama Administration has decided to relax Obamacare’s employer mandate again. Much will be written about that decision’s impact on the law’s viability and the 2014 and 2016 elections. But there’s a bigger issue at play, here. Ever since Obamacare’s implementation has gone off the rails, the White House has been trying to fix the law by deciding not to enforce, or to selectively enforce, or to enforce differently, various provisions of the law. The problem with that is…that it’s not how American government is supposed to work. As any civics class teacher knows, the way American government is supposed to work

A North Carolina hospital says 18 patients were exposed to a rare and fatal brain disease after “extra precautions should have been taken, but were not.” Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., said surgical tools used on a patient suspected of having Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease should have been subjected to “enhanced sterilization procedures” to remove CJD-linked proteins called prions. Instead, the instruments underwent the normal, less stringent sterilization process and were subsequently used in 18 neurosurgery patients, according to the hospital. “Our standard procedure is to apply the enhanced sterilization process to surgical instruments that are used on any patient who

LOS ANGELES -- For the past three years, Rob McFarland has kept a beehive filled with 25,000 bees on the roof of his house smack in the middle of West Los Angeles. The bees occupy some prime real estate - they even have a view of the Hollywood sign - but for now, they are illegal squatters in the trendy neighborhood of bars and eateries near Santa Monica. On Wednesday, the City Council will vote on whether to begin the process of granting bees like McFarland´s legal status in LA´s residential areas after a lengthy lobbying effort from bee lovers of all

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

Famed former CNN host Larry King said he has never heard of Juanita Broaddrick Thursday in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV. Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in direct contact with President Barack Obama at least 18 times between October 2012 and October 2013, including seven occasions where her draft calendar showed Obamacare as the topic of conversation. The news appears to contradict her insistence that Obama was in the dark about problems plaguing the ill-fated healthcare.gov website in the months leading up to its October 1, 2013 launch. The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

In a segment on last night’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, political commentator and prodigal GOP son Ron Reagan called out Sen. Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues? They could have all voted against the debt limit increase, they could have all gone home to their constituents in Tennessee or Kentucky or wherever, and they could have said,

I imagine the only thing worse than being forced to watch CNN inside an airport terminal is being forced to watch it in a doctor’s office. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered a Michigan health care facility, funded by federal tax dollars, blocked Fox News Channel from its waiting room television sets. The president of Family Health Care directed staff to block Fox News after a board member complained about our network’s coverage of the Affordable Care Act, an employee told me. “The board member complained that patients were turning the channel to Fox News,” said the employee who asked

King branded as “morons” many conservatives in the GOP caucus who consistently oppose any effort to pass the debt limit, asserting they are the same faction that led to the government shutdown last year. “This is the same group that back in September and October went into a government shutdown that everybody knew was a disaster,” King said on MSNBC. “They ended up looking like morons following Ted Cruz over the cliff.” King had been
