    And we should end the wars now too! Wait a minute ... isn't that what Obama campaigned for in 2008? Why hasn't it happened yet? He can do anything with executive privilege, right. I mean, congress is not acting. They have not presented a budget to Obama that he would accept for 3 years now. That do nothing congress. They have bad ideas, like implementing the deficit reduction plans proposed by the appointed Obama deficit commission. Poor Obama ... this feuding is just going to ruin his Christmas vacation plans.

    In a story that’s been largely buried by the media for years upon years – and was doubly buried in the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11 resulting in the death of four Americans – the New York Times is now reporting that US-approved arms that were supposed to go to Libya rebels went to Islamist terrorists. Even more importantly, the Obama administration knew about it before, during, and after the Benghazi attacks. The Times reports: No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack...

    Government Issues Statement Debunking End of the World: “Just Rumors” Mac Slavo December 4th, 2012 With the purported 2012 Mayan Apocalypse calculated to take place on December 21st rapidly approaching, thousands of letters have poured into government agencies like NASA from citizens concerned about the end of the world. Doomsday fears surrounding the end of the Mayan calendar, a possible collision with a mystery “Planet X” theorized by some researchers, and pole shift popularized in the Hollywood movie 2012, have forced the government to issue a rebuttal debunking the claims at their USA.gov web site: Scary Rumors about the World...

    GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) - Guatemalan police arrested U.S. software guru John McAfee on Wednesday for illegally entering the country and said it would expel him to neighboring Belize, which he fled after being sought for questioning over his neighbor's murder. McAfee, who had been in hiding for three weeks, crossed into Guatemala with his girlfriend, Samantha, to evade authorities in Belize who wanted to question him as "a person of interest" about the killing of fellow American Gregory Faull. "He entered the country illegally and we are going to seek his expulsion for this crime," Interior Minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla...

    The “Men Working” sign is a standard fixture at construction sites, warning passersby that they should be on guard due to potentially dangerous work. That doesn’t seem controversial, but an Ohio college official has declared it anti-women. At Ohio’s Sinclair Community College, Elizabeth Verzi, the school’s Manager of Construction and Planning, ordered the crew to remove a Men Working sign that she called "sexist." The incident occurred the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, as an ALL-MALE construction crew from the company JCrane was working in an area of Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. The crew was told to immediately cease all...

    (Reuters) - Iowa police said they have not yet identified bodies found by hunters in a wooded area on Wednesday that could be those of two girls who vanished last summer in a case that received national attention. Captain Rick Abben, chief deputy of the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office, could not say that the bodies were those of Elizabeth Collins, 8, and Lyric Cook, 10, until they are positively identified by the State Medical Examiner's Office. But Abben said the families of the two cousins had been notified. "It's definitely not the outcome that we wanted," Abben said in...

  • Dem Senators to Strip Gun Rights from Military Vets

    12/05/2012 8:06:28 PM PST · by chessplayer · 25 replies
    Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) hopes to stop a major defense spending bill in its tracks now that Democrats have added an amendment that allows them to take away the guns of certain military veterans. The amendment contains language that bans gun ownership for a broad swath of veterans designated "mentally incompetent." Coburn says the approach is sloppy, and that as of right now, "veterans who simply cannot support themselves financially" are placed under the mentally incompetent label and therefore "cannot buy or possess a firearm."

    *Marvin Gaye‘s son and Lenny Kravitz may be childhood friends, but it doesn’t mean the heir wants the rocker playing his father on the big screen. In fact, Marvin Gaye III and his family members are against the project altogether, according to TMZ.com. Kravitz will play Gaye in the biopic “Sexual Healing” (working title), which is said to follow the legend’s life in the 80s when he battled drug abuse and depression – up until his father shot and killed him in 1984.

    A few days ago, I posted this blog: Doomsday Preppers are Socially Selfish. The role of a blogger is to foment discussion an it certainly appears that’s what I did. I very much appreciated most of the 150+ comments – except perhaps the ones that called me ‘stupid’, ‘nuts, ‘arrogant’, ‘ignorant’ – and a few personal emails that were much more graphic. I wrote this for the emergency management community, who pretty much misunderstood what I was saying. Social media is certainly powerful and I had no idea this would be so controversial. FIRST .. let me offer a heartfelt...
  • Washington Post, MSNBC Hosts, Daily Kos Join Obama in West Wing to Discuss Fiscal Cliff

    Before President Obama decides once and for all to fly off the fiscal cliff like a leftist eagle, he’s meeting with all of his lackeys in the media. That started today with four MSNBC primetime hosts entering the West Wing to lick the shoes of the President. First, Ed Schultz tweeted that he was meeting with Obama to discuss the fiscal cliff; then Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery let on that she’d seen Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Al Sharpton – a group with the combined IQ of a single kumquat – entering the West Wing. Maddow apparently gigglesnorted that...

    Baca Will No Longer Turn Over Low-Level Offenders To Immigration December 5, 2012 Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said Wednesday he will no longer honor requests from federal authorities to detain suspected illegal immigrants arrested for low-level crimes, a reversal from his previous support of the controversial Secure Communities program. Until recently, Baca has been adamant about complying with the federal requests, arguing that they were mandatory. He was the most outspoken opponent of a bill called the Trust Act, which would have required California law enforcement to disregard the requests in many cases. A Baca spokesman said the...

    The vile and repugnant Jason Whitlock just keeps the hits on coming. His ignorant screed denigrating our civil rights following an incident where a Kansas City Chiefs NFL player slayed his wife and then went to the Chief’s training area to thank his coach before doing society a favor and offing himself was offensive enough to America’s one hundred plus million gun owners. Jason’s Whitlock’s inner racist bigotry was out for all to see in subsequent remarks he made, equating the National Rifle Association and America’s gun owners with the Ku Klux Klan. Here is what the knuckle-dragging racist bigot...

    On December 27th, 1979, the Soviet Union launched a full scale invasion of Afghanistan. Within days, thousands of tanks and armoured vehicles, accompanied by tens of thousands of troops, secured Kabul with intentions of expanding the Soviet sphere of influence. This small, unconquerable Muslim country was victim to one of history’s most monstrous empires. Mass death on a scale of millions unfolded and Afghanistan slowly became the bombed out caveman husk of a nation that we know today. But it wasn’t defeated. The resistance against the invasion was dedicated and determined. One of the key operatives, of course, was Osama...
