As we learn more about the terrorist attack in Boston and now the Ricin letters sent to the President and members of Congress, we should remember that while these attacks could be foreign or domestic, coordinated or separate, left or right-wing extremists, there is one thing that we are sure of:
On August 2, 2011 Budget Control Act of 2011 was signed into law by President Obama. Within the legislation there was a trigger for mandatory across the board spending cuts (sequestration); these cuts have become known as The Sequester. President Obama was fully aware of the element of sequestration because
Israel responds to Hamas terror attacks with a bombing of weapons dump in Gaza. They really nailed them but Hamas human sheilds by locating munitions in civilian (residential) areas. Hamas actually benefited because of the use of propaganda that Israel is killing civilians. This is made possible by a lazy and corrupt news media.
In 2010, Social Security began paying out more than it was taking in, and Medicare is set to go broke in 2024. There are ways to deal with the fiscal crisis these programs face but it means cutting through the storm of fear created by politicians that have sacrificed individual economic liberty and healthcare on the altar of political gain.
The recent Obama/Biden campaign of character assassination, replete with distortions, smears and outright lies, has acted as a cancer to our national debate; a debate that should be focused on how best to solve the problems facing our great country. In selecting Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney has delivered the antidote to this disease plaguing our political discourse.
Stephen Colbert’s Testimony before House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law was, at times amusing. However, the venue for it was infuriating. Considering the fact that the overall issue of illegal immigration is costing not only resources, but lives of citizens, perhaps congress should be interviewing actual experts? Regrettably, they got a political satirist engaging in over the top characterizations of migrant farming replete with the ubiquitous claim: These are jobs Americans wouldn’t do; the migrant workers are mere victims of the exploitive, American capitalist system.
President Obama’s recent comments reflect a worldview that is at best naïve, and at worst willfully ignorant. Since taking office, he has shown deference to the Muslim world. He has also accepted the narrative of Jihadists. He has criticized his own country without context and praised the “Muslim world” with exaggerations and outright untruths.
