Check Out Obama´s Multimillion-
Dollar Martha´s Vineyard Vacation Pad

ABC News, by Erin Dooley and Benjamin Siegel

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/12/2014 8:41:59 PM

The commander-in-chief will be beach bummin’ it in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass, this summer, and the home he is reportedly renting out looks amazing. President Obama and the first lady are planning a two-week vacation at a seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in Chilmark, the Martha’s Vineyard Times reports. The first family will travel to the island from Aug. 9 to Aug. 24, making the 15-day getaway the longest summer vacation of Obama’s presidency. While the location of their vacation home was supposed to be under wraps, neighbors confirmed to the local newspaper that the Obamas will be staying at a luxurious home

Comments:
As Mark Steyn may say, their Ceaucescu´s-on-the-Balcony moment will arrive some day. And the adoring, manufactured crowds will be replaced with a citizenry demanding appropriate judgment.

It´s the longest vacation he has taken....I thought since the amateur clown entered the WH he has been on a permanent vacation. Unless golf, partying, apologizing around the world, hanging out on talk shows, smooching in Hollywood, oh, the most important, reading of his teleprompter counts as work! Especially since he does not understand a word he is reading, nor what he is signing when it is not done by automatic pen.
Zero, we will pay for a long, permanent vacation, just resign!

Having lived in Romania for 3 years under the Ceaucescus, I can tell you that they got off easy facing a firing squad. The military should have tossed them to the crowds in Bucharest and let the people inflict their own punishment by tearing them limb from limb. They deserved nothing less.

The Vineyard is a small island and the season for fun there is short.

So, for two weeks of that brief time life for islanders and vacationers will be completely wrecked. And I´d venture 96% of all of them voted for the trash on wheels they´d normally shun like the plague.

Hilarious.

Some rightwing extremist critics accuse Dear Leader Barack Hussein of loafing, watching TV and playing golf on a never-ending stream of extravagant vacations, all while dire crises and emergencies demand his non-existent attention. But what the critics don´t realize is that even while on his multimillion-dollar breaks from being an actual president, he is still intensely busy caring about helping people. This deep caring of Dear Leader Barack Hussein is what completes us as people. When he cares, our lives have meaning.

Sincerely,
The loathsome MSM

Cases of Ebola in West Africa are continuing to rise exponentially, with Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone together experiencing a 49% increase in cases in just the last three weeks. New data released Tuesday by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that there are now a total of 4,269 cases in the three countries, including 2,288 deaths. Liberia alone has experienced a 68% increase in cases in the last three weeks. Localized clusters of Ebola have also been emerging in Nigeria and Senegal, where authorities have reported a combined total of 24 cases and eight deaths. On Monday, the WHO

Obama’s ISIS plan

If we’ve learned anything about fighting terrorism in the 13 years since the Sept. 11 attacks, it’s this: Keep the hubris and the expectations in check. (Snip) The goal under President George W. Bush was to bring democracy to the Middle East. Obama wants only to beat back a threat, a far more modest and realistic goal. “The United States has a well-established tendency to overreact and to shoot itself in the foot,” Harvard Professor Stephen M. Walt wrote in a New York Times op-ed last week. “The Bush administration panicked after 9/11 and overthrew Saddam Hussein, at a cost

America is running out of jobs.
It´s time for a universal basic income
The Week, by Ryan Cooper    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/9/2014 2:37:58 PM     Post Reply
Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

Washington — President Obama’s speech Wednesday on the growing threat from Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria represents a major test of his leadership. It’s being billed as an address to the nation, but it will reach far beyond that. Mr. Obama will be speaking foremost to the American people –Democrats, Republicans, and independents – in the heat of the midterm campaign. And it comes at a time of heightened sensitivity to terrorism, the eve of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and the second anniversary of the attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya. Congress will

Democratic Colorado Sen.

Horrible and barbarous as those executions were, don’t be impulsive, come up with a plan to knock ISIL back.”

Washington -- Americans are increasingly concerned that ISIS represents a direct terror threat, fearful that ISIS agents are living in the United States, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll. Most now support military action against the terrorist group. Seven in 10 Americans believe ISIS has the resources to launch an attack against the United States, just days before President Barack Obama plans to address the nation on the subject. The poll released Monday shows that Americans favor: -- Additional airstrikes against ISIS (76% favor, 23% oppose)-- Military aid to forces fighting ISIS (62% favor, 37% oppose) -- Providing humanitarian

PESHAWAR/DERA ISMAIL KHAN Pakistan - Islamic State pamphlets and flags have appeared in parts of Pakistan and India, alongside signs that the ultra-radical group is inspiring militants even in the strongholds of the Taliban and al Qaeda. A splinter group of Pakistan´s Taliban insurgents, Jamat-ul Ahrar, has already declared its support for the well-funded and ruthless Islamic State fighters, who have captured large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria in a drive to set up a self-declared caliphate. "IS (Islamic State) is an Islamic Jihadi organization working for the implementation of the Islamic system and creation of the Caliphate,"

President Barack Obama traveled to Estonia on Wednesday to set the world straight on his intentions. In a speech at the wood-paneled Nordea Concert Hall in Tallinn, he spoke of “steadfast support,” “solemn duty,” “crystal clear” treaties and “concrete commitments.” (Snip) Then, in a third formulation, he said he hoped to “shrink [ISIS´s] sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its military capability to the point where it is a manageable problem.” In place of answers on these most knotty challenges, Obama repeated the idealistic formulations of human progress

When I was contemplating where I might want to practice after law school, I was struck by the description of one particular firm in Philadelphia with a thriving tax practice. A former partner warned me off, explaining that they brought lunch to your desk. After years of scratching together my own lunch, I thought that sounded pretty great so I asked what was so terrible about having your lunch brought to you. “They do it,” she said simply, “Because they don’t want you to leave.” She wasn’t kidding. It turns out that providing lunch and other perks at your desk

Vladimir Putin was today directly and personally threatened by the Islamic State because of his close ties to Syrian leader Bashar Hafez al-Assad. The chilling warning, delivered by a member of the terror group, puts the Kremlim leader on the same side as the West in holding back Muslim extremism. But at the same time, he remains at loggerheads with the U.S. and Europe in the worst crisis since the Cold War. In a video on Al-Arabiya TV channel, an ISIS rebel sits in the cockpit of a captured Russian-made fighter aircraft in the Tabak area of the Syrian province of Rakka. A second fighter warns: 'This message is addressed to you,

Mysterious Fake Cellphone Towers

Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week, according to a report in Popular Science. Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts. Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, used ESD´s CryptoPhone 500 to detect 17 bogus cellphone towers. ESD is a leading American defense and law enforcement technology provider based in Las Vegas. With most phones, these fake communication towers are undetectable. But not for the CryptoPhone 500, a customized Android device that is disguised as a Samsung

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist.

Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true.

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign.
