Workers World Party as reported by New Zeal blogger. Seems the whole world is watching out for us!
So get ready, cause I'm coming strapped..."
"Don't forget, I got my scope on you Tea Party fascists. I'm reading Lenin, training in target practice. Let's see who's the fastest...."
"After genocide, slavery, AIDS and global warming, this beef is unsquashable, because the class contradictions have become permanently irreconcilable..."
"Remember New Orleans? They let those levees break..."
"That's right boss man, them bells are tolling. It's time to settle the score..."
"They won't be able the dam the rushing tides of people's war..."
"The AKs are clocked, locked and cocked in the Dakotas. Because the North and South belongs to the Lakota..."
"And this is just a first taste of what's to come when all ducks will be in a row. Wait till you see my Panther comrades lead an uprising in every single last ghetto..."
"The Pentagon? they're lucky all these people are sleeping. Cause with all their troops in Iraq, we could easily catch them sleeping...."
"They wanna know why we'll bear arms? that's easily explainable..."
"So follow the Party's command, every woman student and man, fall into position. The Workers World Party will put the bosses up against the wall and bring justice to each one in the order of who's the greediest of them all..."

What to Do If a Tea Party Member Moves In Next Door
I'm serious! It's a primer on what to do, to calm their members and remind them that Obama is looking out for them!
Check out one of the comments:
By Obama Love: The Tea Party people are the new Al-Queda. Ramping up the TSA screenings, patriot act, and homeland security are all things Obama must do to keep us safe from these nut jobs. I just saw there leader Ron Paul complianing about the TSA screenings. ..
Really? They are willing to be groped and put up with the Patriot Act and compare the tea party to Al-Qaeda???
Get a look at the writer, I hope that look is a comic twist on his name Coffee Man.
Sorry to scare you, hope you have had your morning coffee!!

Getting close, and here's another great choice for Tuesday.
LW: As of 9/21 you are still the only candidate to sign the No Pork Pledge. However, some would argue that part of a Senator’s job is to attract jobs and business to their state. What is your plan for increasing jobs availability, and enabling businesses to do what they do best in Georgia?
CDonovan: First of all, Pork is not a way of bringing jobs or prosperity into the State. It might appear to be a winning deal when money comes in from Washington, but that overlooks two things. First some of that money comes from other States. There is no reason why taxpayers in Kansas for example, should pay for a project in Georgia, especially after their money passes through Washington. Secondly and more importantly, Federal money also comes from Georgians.
The current game is the Federal government plunders the states and heaps the money up in Washington, D.C. Then Senators, Representatives, and Governors fight their way to the money and return to their electorate displaying what they got for us. They didn’t get anything. They got back only some of what was plundered from us after the Federal government took its cut. Even worse, the money comes back to the state with a big Federal string attached.
This has to stop, and I am drawing the line. The Federal government has nothing it hasn’t taken from others. It is time the states kept their production and made their own economic decisions. There is no authorization for earmarks or Pork in the Constitution and it is about time the practice stopped.
Pork, subsidies, stimulus and bailouts pick winners and losers in the economy. It is not government’s job to pick the winners and losers. Government is supposed to be making the United States the most business friendly country in the world, and by doing so we will expand prosperity in an economically sustainable way.
LW: I’ve been seeing ads on TV from Ontario, Canada enticing business to relocate there due to their tax structure. Of all things, Canada is now becoming a tax haven!! What would you do to enable business to stay here? How can we stop the loss of business from American shores?
CDonovan: As long as our government continues to pick the winners and losers via special deals, special interest tax breaks, subsidy, stimulus, bailouts and intervention, entrepreneurs who lose in the deal will look for another place to do business. In addition, every business in America has to run a gauntlet of regulations. A small businessman recently told me he is not afraid of competition. His main fear is the EPA, OSHA, the IRS, and the Georgia Department of Revenue.
We have to concentrate on making the United States the most business friendly country in the world. Simplified tax law, tort reform, reduced regulations, and most importantly a better understanding among Americans about what an honestly free market would look like, would all stop the loss of American businesses and jobs.
To begin with, we should eliminate the EPA, OSHA, FDA, FCC, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Commerce. We have to shrink the tax code to less than 100 pages, and we have to bring the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world down from 35% to 25% or less.
LW: What are your three top priorities for action in the Senate and what do you see as your main impediment to accomplishing these priorities.
CDonovan: My top three priorities are to: 1. Cut “discretionary” and “mandatory” spending2. Shrink the size and scope of government 3. Stop inflation
There are two main impediments to achieving these priorities. The first is the lack of leadership in Washington, D.C. coupled with a lack of understanding as to the magnitude of these problems. The second impediment is the misunderstanding by Americans about what government is, and what it should be doing. To paraphrase Orwell, the “proles” have realized how powerful they are, but they are choosing to use that power to expand, government instead of shrinking it.
LW: Federal Reserve – audit or eliminate?
CDonovan: The Fed is the blank check written on the backs of working Americans and working American businesses. It is the source of our bubble economy. It is at the heart of the current housing crisis. There is no other government function that has failed so completely. The Fed was supposed to smooth out the economy and eliminate bubbles. There have been about 63 bubbles since its inception; all caused by the fake credit the Fed pumps into the economy. The Fed was supposed to stabilize the Dollar, but the Dollar is now worth about 5 cents compared to what it was worth when the Fed was put in place, and the Dollar continues to decline in buying power.
Auditing the Fed is not enough. Listen closely to those in favor of the audit. Most of them are just looking to change the management of the Fed.
If there was only one thing I was allowed to change in the Federal government, I will immediately, totally, and forever eliminate the Federal Reserve Bank and all centralized banking from our government.
LW: Talk to us some more about your idea of eliminating the “Certificate of Need” for medical facilities. For those who don’t know, also explain what those are.
CDonovan: The Certificate of Need (CON) is issued by a federal or state regulatory agencies to ensure planned medical facilities are required to fulfill the needs of a community. So, the government decides if a medical facility should actually be built. The decision is not in the hands of entrepreneurs in the health care industry. In this arrangement, government and the medical cartels connected to the government are the winners, and patients and health care consumers are the losers. Supply is restricted and prices increase as a result.
Through the CON, the government imposes a one-size-fits-all approach to medical care, saying that it is applying a consistent standard to hospitals in all states. It sounds good when stated that way however, it amounts to centralized control. Two things are consistent. One, centralized control increases government power not consumer power. It allows the government to pick winners and losers in health care, both on the provider side and the patient side. Second, centralized control drives up prices.
Increased prices are the last thing we need in health care. There is no other sector of the economy that has consistently grown in price faster that inflation.
We are stifling the health care industry and driving up prices with all this government interference. Instead we have to open up opportunity for innovation and competition. If you really care about people in need, you will release the medical industry from the control of centralized government. Abolishing the CON is a step in the correct direction.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned Arizona’s requirement that people show proof of citizenship to register to vote.
The split decision by a three-judge panel determined that the requirement to show proof of citizenship — passed by voters in 2004 — is not consistent with the National Voter Registration Act.
But at least this was AFTER the registration deadline passed. So the only problem is if you go to vote and they tell you that you have ALREADY voted!
Georgia you show to register and you show to vote.
HEAVEN AND HELL
While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator was tragically
hit by a car and died. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems
there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts,
you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."
"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.
"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll
do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can
choose where to spend eternity."
"Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the
"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."
And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down,
down, down to hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf
course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his
friends and other politicians who had worked with him.
Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him,
shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while
getting rich at the expense of the people. They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.
Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.
They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes
it, it is time to go.
Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator
The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St.
Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven...”
So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented
souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They
have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by
and St. Peter returns.
"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven.
Now choose your eternity."
The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would
never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I
think I would be better off in hell."
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down
Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren
land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed
in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more
trash falls from above.
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.
"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and
there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar,
drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a
wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What
The devil smiles at him and says,
"Yesterday we were campaigning, Today, you voted."

Well we have a race in Georgia with NO incumbent! So pay attention.
Our Libertarian pick is Shane Bruce and here is my "bloggerview" with him:
- LW: Health Insurance is probably the biggest subject discussed in any of your interviews. About the only question I can’t find is: would you support across the state line competition?
SBruce: Of course. I’d support buying insurance across national boundaries if I thought the contract was enforceable. There are a number of impediments standing in the way of purchasing coverage across state lines, most of which are barriers erected by our legislature to preserve the profit margins of the insurance companies domiciled here in Georgia. Did you know we have a “Retaliatory Tax” built into our system to make sure that an economic advantage an insurance provider in another state may enjoy due to lower taxes is wiped out by requiring the company to pay the highest rate from either state.
LW: Hmmmm can we say "Atlas Shrugged" anyone?
- LW: Explain to the less educated among us the relationship between the commissioner and underwriters. Would you have any influence with them? Their purpose and “power” has always confused me (please tell me I’m not the only one).
SBruce: The main gig at the Commissioner’s Office is to regulate the practices of companies that sell insurance in Georgia. Those practices have to comply with Georgia Code and it is the job of the Commissioner to ensure that they do. Ideally, the Commissioner should be an impartial judge, uninfluenced by those he regulates. In reality, the office of Commissioner has been used by past administrations to sock away campaign cash in exchange for “favors”. If elected, that will not happen on my watch.
- LW: You’ve said one of your goals would be to drag it (commissioner’s office) kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Would that include digitizing our personal health records? Many of us say UGH no!
SBruce: I am a Libertarian. I concur with your apprehension about digitizing medical records and making them available across the hugely integrated data networks that serve the health care infrastructure. Keep in mind that the Office of the Commissioner does not handle health records, just records of insurance providers, complaints by consumers and a host of other data points to comply with the Georgia Code. That needs to be modernized. I am also in favor of decentralizing the office from one location in Atlanta to as many a 6 regional offices through out the state. The entire state pays for the Office, mayhap some regional offices would provide a better level of service, not to mention bringing some stable jobs to distressed areas.
LW: See, I AM getting an education.
- LW: I have to take you back in time to when you first filed your intent and the battle that ensued over party designation. You said: “I call on the head of the State Ethics Commission to change this process to allow third party candidates to be listed by their political affiliation instead of lumping all of us together under the generic, mundane and boring label of “other party”. I’ll be on the ballot this fall as a Libertarian, not as a member of some “other party”. This is a simple request with a simple solution, responding with “That’s the way we do it” ain’t gonna get it. If you’re not able to to make this simple administrative change, I want to know why.” My question is, can we count on this same fire and determination in all your efforts on behalf of Georgians?
SBruce: Certainly. Hopefully with better results than my o-so-brief run in with the State Ethics Commission. They stood by their flawed decision and I was not able to move them. It was a stark lesson in governmental relations for me, I had no champion in government to make my case so the bureaucracy won with disdain. If elected, I will not allow that to happen to Georgia citizens with a complaint over insurance matters.
- LW: Industrial Small Loans, or Payday loans as some call it. From a free market perspective, how do you keep them performing their service and yet protect (as some would have government do) Georgia’s citizens from the more unscrupulous lenders.
SBruce: The solution to Georgia’s Pay Day Loan operators can be found in a program running successfully in North Carolina where one the state’s Credit Unions starting offering short term (2 weeks) small cap loans ($500 or less) at 12% interest rates. That Credit Union now has a majority of the market share in that kind of lending in North Carolina and it is big business with a percentage of the loan deposited into the borrower’s credit union savings account. I would like to see similar competition here in Georgia to provide another choice for our hard pressed citizenry in these horrendous economic times.
LW: That's certainly better than the 25% title loans here!!
- LW: Would you support a 10th amendment style nullification of Obamacare.
SBruce: I’m pleased that the court challenge has passed phase 1. The 10th amendment is the 10th amendment and certainly outlined the do’s and don’ts. The real question is, would a republican or democrat state house have the courage to use it?
- LW: Let’s set the record straight on the premium tax, is it $6 million or $600??? And how does that work?
SBruce: The number for 2006 was $630,000,000. In suspect it’s a little less in 2010 due to less business. Here’s a link to the report by Georgia State University on the arcane nature of the tax and how’s it’s split between the general fund and various and sundry municipalities in Georgia. It is astonishing that the city of Waycross or Lilburn or Hahira and others can elect to help themselves to your insurance payment courtesy of the state.
Thanks Shane! Hey Georgia, 15 days.

My original post here.
In a statement from Oath Keepers:
"This poorly conducted investigation used unsubstantiated and unsupported information regarding our organization. A journey to our website, and a reading of our bylaws, could have easily confirmed what we are and are not," said the Oath Keepers letter, delivered today to state officials."We are an association of currently serving and retired police, military, and emergency personnel. We are not a militia. Our goal is simply to educate all current service personnel on their obligations under the law and in particular our Constitution."

Many of you Georgians I've talked into voting for John Monds as Governor, Chuck Donovan for US Senate. Now I'd like you to check out Taylor Bryant, Richmond County School Board District 6.
Taylor and I have been "chatting" back and forth on facebook and email and he has agreed to a blog interview. Enjoy!
LW: So there you have it Georgia. 19 days, what are you going to do?

There may have been other reasons for child services to remove the child from the home, but to list his membership in Oath-Keepers and being a gun owner as part of the reason is condemning to all of us.
How many associations or membership do you have or take part in right now that some government bureaucrat might find offensive? Careful, you could lose your children!
What if you are not an actual member, but just post on the forum!
Think about it. This is too far.
There is a rally planned, see site for details.

Before we get TOO far along the high blood pressure hill, this is supposedly for the student loan repayment program. Finally found a copy of the bill and it's in this section: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?c111:2:./temp/~c111u5z6DW:e1215851: a lot of boring reading there.

Good advice for America as well!
The Swiss President on the other hand thinks that it was time for the United Nations to "comprehensively fulfill its global governance role."
"Global governance role"???? NO thank you!

In addition to his usual hyperbole about 9/11, catch what he says about the "world's obligation to give technology and aide to those nations wanting to develop nuclear power". BULL!!!

Namely, that the tea party will be arresting it's opposition and putting them in "internment camps". Taking away rights. Marching to the White House to arrest the president or worse.
Sane people, regardless of whether you like or agree with anything the tea party stands for, know these accusations to be untrue and just a product of the far left fringe attempting to discredit the tea party in the lead up to the November elections. Google tea party camps and you'll immediately see links leading to the usual suspects, Media Matters, Center for American Progress, and more similar progressive sites who may be encouraging and some say pay, people to use any means to attack the reputation of the tea party movement.
So just for the record, you "trolls" may want to study these two analyses including one case.
In a case straight from the uncharted cyber-territory of social networking and personal responsibility, a Chicago renter is being sued by her former landlord for referring to her apartment as “moldy” in a message she sent to a friend. Because the renter transmitted the message using the micro-blogging service Twitter, her landlord accused her of “maliciously and wrongfully” defaming his company “throughout the world.”
The law of Defamation has come under renewed scrutiny with the advent of the Internet. This is largely because it is the nature of the Internet to give the average, anonymous person an opportunity to express their opinion well-beyond any previously defined venue. Consider the fact that a person of modest means now has the ability to publish a statement, article, or news item across the world in an instant, without an editor checking the facts. Thereafter, the item will linger on the 'Net for months, or even years, impossible to recover and amend, if the "facts" are erroneous. Therefore, it is inevitable that problems are going to arise.
The main issue to remember when dealing with the Internet is that people still have their basic legal rights intact on the Net, and - likewise - the Internet is not as completely anonymous as the typical person may presumes.

I like the idea of the Bill of Rights Defense group but their leadership tends to make me think they don't REALLY care as much about freedoms as they should.
ACLU should be ashamed of having Dohrn (Weather Underground) on their board. Explains alot of their recent failings.

Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that the Republican Party is embracing "ideology over evidence" and pushing out pragmatic voices that would make even his White House successor seem like a liberal.
"A lot of their candidates today, they make him look like a liberal," Clinton told an enthusiastic crowd at a downtown hotel as he campaigned for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton.
Clinton pointed to the tea party movement's influence on the GOP.
"The Boston Tea Party was protesting abuse of power. This is now trading public power for the abuse of private power," Clinton said, just as a tea party-backed candidate was declared the winner Tuesday night in Delaware's hotly contested Republican primary for U.S. Senate.
But he still doesn't understand the tea party movement as protesting GOVERNMENT abuse of power.
Bush WAS a liberal - a liberal Republican. Just like Castle/Delaware was a liberal Republican and THAT is what cost him the race.
Bill can be our best campaigner. Look what he has done for Meg Whitman in California:

What I like about this article is this quote:
The government, composed of members from the assembly, came to be called the Weimar coalition and included the SPD; the German Democratic Party (Deutsche Demokratische Partei--DDP), a descendant of the Progressive Party of the prewar period;
HA! I knew the progressives were mixed up in this somehow.
This government started out with the right idea, mix of power between the president and the parliament. Where they went wrong was giving the president the power to dismiss the cabinet, dissolve the Reichstag, and veto legislation.
This government was not totally accepted by the populace at large and very severe political battles and unlikely alliances plagued it's entire existence. The extreme right worked with the Communist party (KPD) towards its destruction. The VersaillesTreaty laid the groundwork for it's demise. It never stood a chance.
All this infighting resulted in nothing getting accomplished to help stabilize what was in effect a new nation. Violence was rampant and many do not know but it was at this time Youth paramilitary groups came into existence. There were as many as five different political parties with no one gaining enough support to take control. Multiple coup d'état usually ending in defeat, some for as simple a reason as a general strike!!!
The republic was falling more and more behind on it's reparations payments as stipulated in the treaty. There were incursions by French and Belgian troops trying to collect their payments. The government response? They halted all industrial activity! A nation already burdened with high unemployment and now industry at a standstill.
There were indeed wheelbarrows of cash needed for purchases of food items. What jobs there were, paid employees twice a day in cash, so the workers could run make their purchases before the prices went even farther up.
Chancellor Stresemann formed a new coalition and somehow managed to gain cooperation between the different factions, although limited. The economy began a short lived recovery. Short only because of the depression and the Wall Street crash. Loans were re-called which Germany could not pay. The easing unemployment once again skyrocketed.
Were it not for the Great Depression, Hitler may not have found an opportunity (or a crisis to take advantage of) to come to power.

The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into their hearts and they'll forever speak of this day and rejoice!"
Pelosi replied, "I seriously doubt that with one little wave of your hand. Show me!"
So the Pope backhanded the bitch!
AND THE CROWD ROARED & CHEERED WILDLY!
Kind of brings a tear to your eyes, doesn't it?

Before I came to Cincinnati, I was a news reporter at WOC in Davenport Iowa. I covered a lot of city council and a lot of political stuff. One of the guys I covered was Ed Mezvinsky, who was the Congressman from Iowa's first district. Seemed like a pretty nice guy, but when he ditched his wife for a New York reporter, the Iowa voters ditched him.
My most vivid memory is that he sat on the House Judiciary Committee that was deciding the fate of President Nixon. Anyway, years later, "Fast Eddie" got caught with his hand in the till. He cheated investors out of more than $10 million dollars. He has gone to prison for several years.
This weekend, his son married Chelsea Clinton.

"In trying to use policy as a cure-all, we will repeat the cycle of severe recession and unemployment in a few short years by keeping rates too low for too long."
Mr. Hoenig added: "I wish free money was really free and that there was a painless way to move from severe recession and high leverage to robust and sustainable economic growth, but there is no short cut."
As this writer states it takes one to speak out, hopefully more will follow.
Great blog btw.

Maybe this signals a return to constitutionalism. More and more people are becoming educated about the constitution and that is always a good thing. For too long, lawyers and politicians have studied only to find ways to subvert it, instead of learning and adhering the spirit of the constitution.
Excerpt:“The reality is the Tenth Amendment really defines what the Constitution was supposed to mean,” Michael Boldin, founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, told The Daily Caller.
On Capitol Hill, a group of Republican congressmen recently founded the Tenth Amendment Task Force, with the goal of “Dispers[ing] power from Washington and restor[ing] the constitutional balance of power through liberty-enhancing federalism,” according to their website.

Of course the screen may change by the time you look, but at the time of my viewing, no republican races are yet decided, but almost every one on the democrat side is. Overwhelmingly so. And I'm trying to figure out why they seemed to finish up so early. Then I noticed that every "winner" was the first name in each race. Listed alphabetically!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, democrat voters really are stupid. Now I know how Al Green won in South Carolina.

"Last year China also became Brazil’s number one trading partner when it agreed to lend $10 billion to Petrobras in return for guaranteed oil supply over the next decade. Other projects between China and its South American BRIC counterpart included a $5 billion steel plant at the Acu port in Rio de Janeiro state. That deal represents China’s largest ever investment in Latin America’s richest resource economy and its biggest foreign steel-plant investment."
So George Soros is now also making money from China! And Petrobras will be making HUGE money from China. Guess that's why Petrobras has been greedily buying up all the idle oil drilling platforms they can find. When Obama put the moratorium into place they were negotiating for all those put in limbo in the Gulf. Luckily a judge ruled against him, so we may save those.
Funny thing about those platforms. They cost millions just to let sit. So the owners will move them elsewhere. Once they are moved you can bet they won't come back anytime soon. Those would have been permanently lost jobs if the President had won. I'm sure it's not over yet.
And now, BP has been instructed that before they sell any significant assets they have to clear it with Washington first? Ok, BP should be made to pay for this disaster, but they may just need to sell off some assets to finance these claims. How can Washington think they have this authority? And where does it stop?
It's Rhode Island and they've been doing it since 2008. No lawsuit from Obama/Holder? And Rhode Island didn't even pass legislation, the governor just signed an executive order!
They don't impose any fine, they just call I.C.E. to come pick up the offender. Isn't that still a preemption of Federal Law?
But no lawsuit from the Feds.... hmmmm.
pssst maybe it's cause RI is democrat...
Great blog btw.

Megan Kelly to interview Black Panther "cracker killer" Shabazz ... Bill O'Reilly told her to make sure she has extra security on hand.
“What do we have to do to keep you off tv?” He simply replied, “give me what I need.”
Hey Rey, this is what you might have found:
So this is supposed to provide sensors for cyber attacks against our utility companies, etc. But some are afraid it could be used to invade more of our privacy.
No one can say exactly how this will work or won't say how much data it will collect.

Here's the write up from Fox News. I was yelling at this fool when he was spouting off.
SECURE THE BORDER!
I don't care how you feel about the immigration issue, no politician has the right to belittle constituents this way, about ANY issue.
UPDATE *** This explains so much. He's a Progressive!

What is particularly troubling to me is my Congressman, John Barrow originally signed on as a co-sponsor. But he just voted against it.
I have emailed him to let him know he will NOT be getting my vote.

The $50 Lesson
I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?' She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.'
Her parents beamed with pride.
"Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, ' Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50? '
I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'
Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

The "humanitarian protesters" tried to kidnap three of the Israeli soldiers. Further evidence of weaponry was found:
... After the incident, 9mm bullet casings were found - a kind not used by the naval commandos. The Israel Defense Forces says that during the operation a number of pistols and an M-4 rifle were taken from soldiers, but they believe that the Turkish activists had other weapons. The captain of the ship told the naval commando chief that the guns were thrown overboard before the ship was completely taken over.
There are at least a few honest journalists that challenge the protesters on their version of what happened:
The above from Just Journalism which has an ever growing reputation for unbiased reporting.
Now don't get me wrong. The handing over of Israel by the British many decades ago was probably not in the best interests of the region. But it is done. It can't be undone unless you support another holocaust. So there has to be some way to come to an agreement. But as long as the Palestinians allow Hamas to represent them, there will likely be violence.

Yes I'm sure Doc will have something to say about AIPAC
If the flotilla people really cared about Gaza, they would submit to search just like international law requires and the aid would make it to Gaza. But they really don't care, they just want to stir up shit. For their Muslim radical buddies.
Thanks to our men and women in the service.

Department of Labor Investigation
The North Dakota Department of Labor claimed a small Bismarck farmer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.
Department of Labor employee: I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.
Farmer: Well, there's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.
Then there's the mentally challenged worker. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.
NCDL employee: That's the guy I want to talk to...the mentally challenged one.
Farmer: That would be me.

This is not a done deal but is getting too close for comfort.
Original article from Reuters. I picked up this morning from Armand Hale. He had an interesting quote from Paul Broun.
The UN's Small Arms Treaty is designed to register, ban and commandeer firearms owned by private citizens like you. The Obama Administration would be working hand in glove pass a new, "Small Arms Treaty." The National Association for Gun Rights wants you to understand just how dangerous this global gun ban is. It will enact tougher licensing requirements, confiscate and destroy all "unauthorized" civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded). Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons. Create a international gun registry. Source: Dr. Paul Broun, M.D. U.S. Congressman (R-GA)
Clinton is demanding that each nation have veto which the UN is fighting.
