Week In Review In The Obama Economy

Week In Review In The Obama Economy: “By any measure, middle-class Americans aren’t better off in the Obama economy. This week alone, industrial production plummeted, poverty remained stuck at record levels, and families continued to struggle with fewer jobs and higher costs. President Obama just hasn’t delivered for the families who needed him the most. Mitt Romney will reverse the Obama economy’s decline by creating 12 million new jobs and higher take-home pay for American workers.” – Amanda Henneberg, Romney Campaign Spokesperson

Bel and the Dragon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bel and the Dragon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: The narrative of Bel and the Dragon incorporated as chapter 14 of the extended Book of Daniel exists only in Greek in the Septuagint. This chapter, along with chapter 13, is referred to as deuterocanonical, in that it is not universally accepted among Christians as belonging to the canonical works accepted as the Bible. The text is viewed as canonical by both Catholic and Orthodox Christians but as apocryphal by Protestants and typically not found in modern Protestant Bibles, though it was in the original 1611 edition of the King James Version. It is listed in Article VI of the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England.[1]

Posse Comitatus Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Posse Comitatus Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: The Posse Comitatus Act is the United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) that was passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction. Its intent (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) was to limit the powers of local governments and law enforcement agencies in using federal military personnel to enforce the laws of the land. Contrary to popular belief, the Act does not prohibit members of the Army from exercising state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order"; it simply requires that any authority to do so must exist with the United States Constitution or Act of Congress. In this way, most use of the Army and the Air Force at the direction of the President does not offend the statute, even though it may be problematic for political reasons.

Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Obama, it's time to wake up and smell the global jihad | Fox News: When the men who killed our ambassador to Libya were in the final stages of their preparation, Hillary Clinton was in the Cook Islands, being regaled by locals in traditional dress. Her seemingly endless world tour has prioritized symbolism and pageantry over substance. So too has the administration of her boss, Barack Obama, and the costs are now becoming clear.

This explains why Obama’s chief diplomat said of the Libya attack: “I asked myself—how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?”

During its war with Iraq, Iran used school-aged children to clear the ground for its troops by running over minefields! - History - Aug 26, 2012 - Interesting Facts and Fun Facts - OMG Facts

Go to Iran if you want to witness severe human rights abuses. Iran is notorious for using “human waves” to clear minefields or draw enemy fire during war. It cost many lives, but the tactic worked sometimes. Volunteers were swept away by patriotism and martyrdom war propaganda presented by the government during the revolution.

Children were encouraged through visits to the schools as an invasive media campaign. Boys aged nine to sixteen proudly and excitedly lined up to become martyrs. They wore white headbands to signify their embracing of death. An estimated 95,000 Iranian child soldiers were killed during the war.

The Iraq-Iran War was intense and brutal for all citizens. Poison gas was released on citizens during stalemates. Neither side had enough artillery to keep progressing in the war. They turned to dirty tactics that took the lives of countless innocent people. Poison gas was even let loose inside schools, needlessly killing children. The war took a major toll on the nation.

Is it the internal or external jugular vein that is on the left side of the neck? - Yahoo! Answers: Is it the internal or external jugular vein that is on the left side of the neck?
I'm writing a story and need these questions answered. My killer is left handed and I need to know if the vein on the left side of the neck is the internal or external jugular vein (I think it's the internal) and whether or not it is close enough to the surface of the skin to be penetrated by the tip of a fountain pen.

There is an internal and an external jugular vein on each side of the neck. The internal is larger and runs deeper, the external is smaller and closer to the surface.

As to hitting one with a pen tip, you could probably hit either, but the external would be easier.

How is your killer performing his awful task? If he is stabbing them so that they bleed to death, a puncture of the size of a pen tip in the jugular will take a LONG time to cause death, and if the person is able they can tamponade the wound to stop or slow the bleeding.

Of course it would be nice if the pink slime media would actually report on news like this. It’s too bad you have to rely on blogs like Hotair to get your news. Or maybe, we’re better off.

Which of Aristotle's works is this quote from? - quote attribution aristotle | Ask MetaFilter: Other authors, wiser according to the opinion of many, count six kinds of governments, three of which are very bad, and three good in themselves, but so liable to be corrupted that they become absolutely bad. The three good ones are those which we have just named; the three bad ones result from the degradation of the other three, and each of them resembles its corresponding original, so that the transition from the one to the other is very easy. Thus monarchy becomes tyranny; aristocracy degenerates into oligarchy; and the popular government lapses readily into licentiousness.

I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.

The Press Association: Drone strike 'kills al Qaida chief'

The Press Association: Drone strike 'kills al Qaida chief'





Drone strike 'kills al Qaida chief'
An air strike has killed al Qaida's second in command in Yemen along
with six others traveling with him in a car, US and Yemeni officials
said.

Saeed al-Shihri's death is a major breakthrough for
US-backed efforts to cripple the terror group in the impoverished Arab
nation.

Al-Shihri, a Saudi national who fought in Afghanistan and
spent six years in the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, was killed
by a missile after leaving a house in the southern province of
Hadramawt, according to Yemeni military officials. They said the missile
was believed to have been fired by a US-operated, unmanned drone
aircraft.

Two senior US officials confirmed al-Shihri's death but
could not confirm any US involvement in the air strike. The US does not
usually comment on such attacks although it has used drones in the past
to go after al Qaida members in Yemen, which is considered a crucial
battleground with the terror network.

Yemeni military officials
said that a local forensics team had identified al-Shihri's body with
the help of US forensics experts on the ground. On Monday night, after
speculation surfaced that the attack was carried by a US drone, Yemen's
Defense Ministry issued a statement saying al-Shihri and six companions
were killed during an operation by Yemeni armed forces in Wadi
Hadramawt, but it did not elaborate on how they were killed.

Yemeni
military officials said they had believed the United States was behind
the operation because its own army does not the capacity to carry out
precise aerial attacks and because Yemeni intelligence gathering
capabilities on al-Shihri's movements were limited.

Al-Shihri's
death is a major blow to al Qaida's Yemen branch, which is seen as the
world's most active, planning and carrying out attacks against targets
on and outside US territory. US drone strikes have intensified in Yemen
in recent months, killing several key al Qaida operatives, including
Samir Khan, an al Qaida propagandist who was killed in a drone strike
last year.

Meanwhile, the leader of al Qaida has confirmed the
death of the group's second-in-command, who was killed in a US drone
strike in north-western Pakistan in June. In a video posted on militant
websites, al Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri described his late lieutenant
Abu Yahya al-Libi as a "lion of jihad and knowledge".

The killing of al-Libi, who was Libyan by birth, was the biggest setback to al Qaida since the death of Osama bin Laden.

Later,
Yemeni officials said a car bomb targeting the motorcade of the
country's defense minister killed at least 13 people, but the minister
escaped unharmed. The security officials said the minister, Major
General Mohammed Nasser Ahmed, was unhurt but that eight of his security
guards were killed. The other five dead were civilian bystanders.

Venus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

A long-standing mystery of Venus observations is the so-called ashen light—an
apparent weak illumination of the dark side of the planet, seen when
the planet is in the crescent phase. The first claimed observation of
ashen light was made as long ago as 1643, but the existence of the
illumination has never been reliably confirmed. Observers have
speculated it may result from electrical activity in the Venusian
atmosphere, but it may be illusory, resulting from the physiological
effect of observing a bright, crescent-shaped object.

Scottish Quotations (6): "Many a clever boy is flogged into a dunce and many an original composition corrected into mediocrity"

Sir Walter Scott writing in 1826.

An Open Letter to Chicago Teachers - Full Frontal Nerdery

An Open Letter to Chicago Teachers - Full Frontal Nerdery

Dear Chicago Teachers,
For a group who claims to be concerned about the children in your community, you sure seem quick to throw them to the wolves. Let’s cut to the chase and get to the facts of the matter.


  • You were offered a contract that amounted to a 16% raise over four years for the average teacher, with the raises guaranteed, regardless of lack of funds.
  • The average teacher in Chicago makes $76,000 per year – before benefits. The average Chicago family earns $47,000 per year.
  • You are opposed to teacher evaluations taking into account the test scores of your students.
Now you’ve gone on strike, leaving your 400,000 students without the education the people of Chicago pay you to provide. A large percentage of those students have nowhere else to go, prompting the city to spend an additional $25 million to supervise them, and forcing Chicago police to refocus their efforts on protecting your students from a city that has seen 366 murders this year.

You have rallied under the banner of a union president who has a history of publicly joking about her own drug use and homophobia.

These are the facts. Every number I have stated above is verifiable through public records. Your spokesperson’s behavior is documented on video.

So please explain how you can justify this strike. Explain to the parents who have entrusted you with our country’s most precious assets, why you have abandoned their children in favor of picket signs. Explain to your non-teacher neighbors who make half your salary, why you are underpaid, unappreciated victims. Explain to the 270,000 unemployed Chicagoans how they really shouldn’t begrudge you your nine-month work year, because of all the extra preparation time you aren’t compensated for. Explain to the country why you shouldn’t be evaluated on your performance that has resulted in 21% of Chicago 8th graders being proficient at reading, 23% at writing, and 20% at math, despite having only a 16 to 1 student/teacher ratio.

Explain to me why I waste my time supporting a profession that you don’t seem to support, yourselves.

That’s right, I work in public education, in a school district 300 miles north of you. I’m the Webmaster for the Eau Claire Area School District in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. My primary function is to support the staff in all of our schools by keeping their online resources running smoothly. I’m also the district’s sole programmer, automating tasks for teachers and administrators, and helping to keep the processes they use current and functional. Care to guess how much training, studying, and preparation is required to stay relevant in IT?

No, I’m not a teacher. I work twelve months a year, earn $41,000, and haven’t gotten a raise in two years. Up until a couple of months ago, I was forced to pay union dues to a union I didn’t want to be a part of. A union that used my money to support political causes and ensure that the value of all teachers is set to that of the lowest common denominator.

Did I mention that my wife homeschools our four children? That means that my property taxes are helping pay for an educational system our children don’t use.

While our teachers were flocking to Madison, Wisconsin, to protest Governor Walker’s collective bargaining reform, leaving their students in the hands of substitutes, I was at my desk, performing the duties I’m paid to perform. Supporting teachers who were uninterested in supporting their own students. And now I see the same thing happening in Chicago, on a much larger scale, with a much greater danger to the children.

So please, explain to us how this is benefiting your students, your community, and your country. Because for those of us who are proficient in math, it just doesn’t add up.

Sincerely,
Tim Wells

As the saying goes... reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

History is full of opressors. Every empire falls, especially when they concentrate too much power in the hands of the few and unjust.

The hardest fight is when we have something left to lose. Yes, there are those that feel it's useless, but all it takes is one small spark to ignite a flame with the intensity of seven suns.

You try to stamp out hope, but we see it every day: In every sunrise and every new baby's cry, the promise that this dark time is just a blip as far as the universe is concerned.

WE ARE Coming. For twenty long, agonizing years, I've had time to think. At first, there was great despair. I literally lost everything, and by everything, I mean the two most precious people in my life. One was gone in a moment's notice and the other slowly slipped through my fingers from her intense grief, a pain so intense, that this time, I could do absolutely nothing to save her -- or us.

Most men would resign themselves to their personal hell and hope for death. But as you well know, I am not most men. The realization struck that I am but one man that has suffered. This is not about me, but about something bigger. Before we went into self-imposed "exile," my father assured me that all is not lost, and my mind worked to think of ways to strike back when -- not if -- the opportunity arose.

So here we are... you call me a ghost and write-off the memory of those who almost sent you back through your hellmouth.

This time, we will do what we were created to do.

“There is a power that can be created out of pent-up indignation, courage, and the inspiration of a common cause, and that if enough people put their minds and bodies into that cause, they can win. It is a phenomenon recorded again and against in the history of popular movements against injustice all over the world.” - Howard Zinn

AP-GfK Presidential Poll Cooking Ends Hiatus, Naturally Oversamples Dems | NewsBusters.org:

 I was beginning to hold out hope that the Associated Press was tiring of its partnership with the polling firm GfK Roper Public Affairs & Corporate Communications.

No such luck. The latest AP-GfK poll on the presidential race of 1,007 people of whom 878 are registered voters shows Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 48% to 44%. That four-point lead is down from 10 points in May and six points in June. The August poll only ended up with Obama in the lead because of extraordinary overweighting of Democrats and a ridiculously small percentage of people who describe themselves as strong Republicans.

Betsy McCaughey: ObamaCare's Phony Deficit Reduction - WSJ.com

Betsy McCaughey: ObamaCare's Phony Deficit Reduction - WSJ.com: Lost in the fuzzy budgetary math is a simple truth: Repealing the law means lower taxes and spending.

Defenders of President Obama's health law are flaunting a Congressional Budget Office claim that overturning the law would worsen the federal deficit. Repeal, said a CBO report late last month, would cancel $890 billion in new entitlement spending but eliminate revenues of even greater magnitude.

Don't be bamboozled. Even if it were true that ObamaCare raises more money than it spends, that would hardly be reason to keep it, or any law.

ObamaCare creates two costly giveaways—an expansion of Medicaid and new subsidies for people purchasing private insurance. It "pays" for both new entitlements by hiking taxes and penalties, and by raiding funds previously designated for Medicare.

The half-trillion dollars in tax hikes and half-trillion dollars in cuts to Medicare funding together total more than the cost of the new entitlements during the next 10 years, according to the CBO, and produce a small $109 billion surplus. Repealing ObamaCare would erase that tiny surplus.
So what? Repeal also would reduce government spending, lower taxes, and undo the evisceration of Medicare: all good results.

Nevertheless, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared that the CBO "confirms what we've been saying all along: the Affordable Care Act saves lots of money." Untrue.

Recently published projections from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) show that cumulative health spending over the next decade will be $478 billion higher than if the law had not been passed. Health-care spending as a share of gross domestic product will rise to 19.6% in 2021 from 17.9% in 2010, and government (i.e., taxpayers) will be paying for a larger share of it than ever before.

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer boasted that the CBO report "makes it very clear: the Affordable Care Act is controlling the growth of health-care costs." Also untrue.

Health-care spending was growing at the slowest rate in many decades when ObamaCare was passed, inching up only 3.9% in 2009 and again in 2010. But CMS predicts spending will shoot up 7.4% in 2014, when the health law goes into full effect.

Moreover, private insurance premiums will increase 7.1% that year, says CMS, which is more than double the increase if the law had not been passed.

The only area of health-care spending that will grow slowly as a result of the law is Medicare, due to ObamaCare cuts and further cuts under the Budget Control Act of 2011. Richard Foster, chief actuary of CMS, warned Congress in April 2010 that the ObamaCare reductions in payments to hospitals are so severe that some hospitals may have to stop accepting Medicare. Where will seniors go?

Finally, ObamaCare's so-called Cadillac tax—a whopping 40% tax on health plans valued at more than $27,500 for a family of four—may never be collected. This tax is the second-largest projected revenue generator ($111 billion by 2022) after the penalties on employers who don't offer the government-mandated health plan ($117 billion). But powerful unions pushed Congress to both delay the tax to 2018 and to exempt union workers in "high risk" occupations, including construction workers and longshoremen.

It's hard to imagine that a future president and Congress would have more fortitude to impose this tax than the health law's namesake. Yet delaying the tax even four additional years, according to CBO figures, would entirely wipe out the "surplus" the Democrats are bragging about.

The CBO's claim that repeal of ObamaCare would increase the deficit will be reiterated many times in the next few months to discredit presidential candidate Mitt Romney's promise to repeal the law. Don't be misled by the CBO's fuzzy math and Washington's infatuation with deficit reduction.

Deficit reduction is code for increasing taxes faster than spending. What the nation needs is entitlement reform to reduce spending, and the best way to start is by repealing the two new entitlements in the Obama health law before they go into effect.

Ms. McCaughey, author of "The Obama Health Law: What It Says and How to Overturn It" (Encounter, 2010), is a former lieutenant governor of New York.

More White House ObamaCare lies—Betsy McCaughey - NYPOST.com: In the runup to today’s Supreme Court ruling on the Obama health law, the White House launched a series of ads on the controversial law’s virtues, as if to say to the public, “You’ll be sorry.” Don’t be bamboozled.

The ads spotlight two provisions: one protecting Americans with preexisting conditions, the other allowing young adultsto stay on their parents’ health plans until age 26. In truth, you can have these protectionsno matter how the high court rules.

And they’re just two one-liners in a 2,572 page law.

BEFORE THE DAMNED Lyrics - ALL THAT REMAINS:

Let them hail the hollow one
Bow before the damned
Forge ahead into the night
Forget the lessons of the past
No remorse for the sinner
No repent for the waking dead
Hide their faces from the light
Let the past live again

We will set in motion
Changing of the times
We have not forgotten
We control our lives

Fallen feed on fallen now
Let the wretched have their fill
Feast not with the beast of old
Taste the fruit of ill will
We can band together now
Cast the dead from our sight
Let them fall to massacre
Let the truth be our guide

Michelle Malkin » Chicago thuggery personified: Meet Chicago Teachers’ Union president Karen Lewis

Michelle Malkin » Chicago thuggery personified: Meet Chicago Teachers’ Union president Karen Lewis: This is the woman leading the walkout of 26,000 public school teachers in Chicago. Karen Lewis, head of the Chicago Teachers’ Union, is a loud-mouthed “social justice” radical whose Big Labor racket would rather abandon 350,000 children to the streets than accept merit-based pay, teacher evaluations, and a 16 percent pay raise. The school board had already caved considerably on the union’s demands, but as the Chicago Sun-Times put it: “From the get-go, the union seemed intent on striking.”

Last night, Lewis mocked public charter schools that are defying the strike and doing their jobs as not “real” schools.

How do they happen? The winds blowing accross the Maracaibo lake and other swampy plains around the area meet with the Andes mountain ridges. These winds carry a lot of heat and moisture, which are perfect for creating electric charges. The result? Lightning for 280 times an hour, 10 hours a day for 160 nights a year!

They Flee from Me

They Flee from Me

They Flee from Me (Egerton manuscript)


They flee from me that sometime did me seek
With naked foot stalking in my chamber.
I have seen them gentle tame and meek
That now are wild and do not remember
That sometime they put themselves in danger
To take bread at my hand; and now they range
Busily seeking with a continual change.

Thanked be fortune, it hath been otherwise
Twenty times better; but once in special,
In thin array after a pleasant guise,
When her loose gown from her shoulders did fall,
And she me caught in her arms long and small;
And therewith all sweetly did me kiss,
And softly said, Dear heart, how like you this?

It was no dream, I lay broad waking.
But all is turned thorough my gentleness
Into a strange fashion of forsaking;
And I have leave to go of her goodness
And she also to use newfangleness.
But since that I so kindely am served,
I fain would know what she hath deserved.

We will spend on defense what is necessary for our national security. I have no intention of leading the Republican Party into next fall's election on a platform of higher taxes and cut-rate defense. If our opponents want to go to the American people next fall and say, "We're the party that tried to cut spending, we're the party that tried to take away your tax cuts, we're the party that wanted a bargain-basement military and held a fire sale on national security," let's give them all the running room they want.

SACRIFICE LYRICS - DIECAST


Tear a-way, from my life force
Torn a-way, from my existence
Take me away, from all reason
Tearing away.

How does a soul solidify,
And create destination!
With ecstasy comes agony,
But you won't mind a balance!

Must...
Must de...
Must decide...
Must decide sacrifice!

Emotion stands on high,
Living and dying by the sword.
Weight of the risk is great,
I am redeemed for the passing.

Turn the key,
Push the gate,
Step by step,
Inch by inch!

Now's the time, my day is near.
Come and see my inner fabric.
Taking (chance, we're on the move?)
am I correct, Evolution.
It takes two halves to make a whole,
How can I be complete if I'm hollow
I must extend my life, for this I give my sacrifice.
Can I travel this path alone? No.

Traveling this path alone.
This path...

Counting down all my days 'til my future does unfold,
will you hold on, on to me, or just let go.

Tear a-way, from my life force
Torn a-way, from my existence
Take me away, from all reason
Tearing away.

Know Where my faith exists undying and forever,
believe the words I scratch,
And bestow of your worth.
Strengthen your sanity,
it will reward in due time...
In...
Due...
Time...
WHY...
