    My wife and had dinner and great discussion last night with another like minded know, the type of discussions that keep your sanity intact...catharsis type...the type likely Russians were banned from having. Anyway, we discussed how since the chief propagandist 'Ebola case's was put in place Ebola has vanished. Recall that this person's resume was a cornucopia of Chicago style message control and campaigning...the real no-name Ebola czar doctor was retired and vanished.

    Analytical individuals keep asking how Obama can engage in talks with Iran, a country that makes no secret of its contempt for the United States. Discerning Americans of all stripes are horrified by Iran's never-ending screeds about wiping Israel off the face of the earth and are puzzled by Obama's staff patently answering these threats with euphemistic double talk -- knowing all along that they are merely parroting their boss's ideology.

    It was supposed to be a phone call for Obama administration ears only. But hear it the radio host did, she says. And what she heard should make your blood run cold — and perhaps your rage hot. Obama’s amnesty plan is to use illegal aliens as “seedlings,” said the federal officials. They will “navigate, not assimilate,” as they “take over the host,” create a “country within a country” and start “pushing the citizens into the shadows.” Welcome to the “fundamental transformation” of America.

    Warren Buffett, the famed investor and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) chief, told the FOX Business Network Wednesday that the Obama administration should approve TransCanada’s (TRP) Keystone XL pipeline. In an exclusive interview with Liz Claman on “Countdown to the Closing Bell,” Buffett said he understands some opposition to the pipeline, which would cross his home state of Nebraska. But when asked if Keystone will be approved, he responded, “I think it should.” “But that's always a problem with pipelines. There’s a lot of the not-in-my-backyard problem, but I think, by and large, Keystone should be done,” Buffett added. The billionaire investor...

    FALLS CHURCH, Virginia -- While giving a speech endorsing Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s Virginia gubernatorial bid at a small concert and theater venue just outside Washington, D.C., former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took several veiled shots at President Barack Obama and the way her 2008 Democratic primary opponent has run Washington since being first elected five years ago.

Unemployment would have been worse had not even more adults -169,000- chosen to join the ranks of those neither working or seeking employment. Hiring and layoffs tend to lag other economic indicators. GDP fell 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter, fears of a government shutdown slowed consumer spending in December and encouraged businesses to cut inventories. Even if the economy doesn't slip into a recession, unemployment would rocket

    When I post things like this, folks here seem to think I'm a sell out, fake conservative, etc. Fine, I can't add enough words to convince...I admit I like to predict stuff, like to get others' opinions, quite frankley, because we all need some comfort in such times as I would hope we're mostly all friends here. Having said that, this is a friendly chat. I am trying to sort things out in both the primary and the G.E. My take is: Cain is out; his fault or not, he's out. If he did do the things accused of, then...

    I'll take the heat; I can handle it. I'm not voting 3rd party, nor am I abstaining like a fool (self-centered fool at that). If Romney wins/steals/usurps/fools us to winning the nomination, I will vote for him. There is no argument that can be made outside of pure "pride of wanting to prove we're right" that allowing Obama to win and hence destroy the country instead of voting for Romney. I DO NOT WANT ROMNEY TO WIN. I hope I'm clear on that. I'd like to see Cain/Palin or Cain/Rubio or Cain/Ginrich or any combination of these, Bachman and Rubio...heck,...
  • Kasich Blew It and the Unions Won and Pulled the Wool Over the Eyes of Willing Voters...What's Next?

    Freep has always been good in pulling news stories together, tracking what is going on. So for Ohio, the unions bought votes, scared voters with lies in commercials, and Kasich and his team did a HORRIBLE job combating it. I also believe Kasich lumped too much in the bill. I think each part needs to be voted on out in the open: 1. No double-dipping 2. Public workers have to contribute to their pension funds and health care 3. Explain to the public that private sector can't have such a disparity of pay and health care...this really wasn't explained by...

    I have a rare coin, specifically a 1 Quetzel, Guatamala 1925 in XF condition. I have priced things a little under the competition and am not doing the Ebay way, but rather non-traditional ways to sell it, such as Craigslist. Craigslist has local, focused areas, and so I put the ad in the Manhattan, Financial District. But, I don't know for such a coin (know that there are only 3000 of this coin in existence) what the best market would be. Anyone have any advice? I was thinking of moving the ad to Naples, FL as well. Craigslist only allows...
  • Cain's Ex-Body Guard was on Entertainment Tonight

    I can't remember which show this was, doesn't matter. Entertainment Tonight or Access Hollywood...just a little while ago. Cain was shown in a good light and his ex-bodyguard said nothing but great stuff about him...nothing bad during the whole 5 minutes spot! Cain made his staff sandwiches, he sleeps 4 hrs per night, he is what you see what you get, down to earth, stays in not expensive hotels, etc. Wow. What am I to think? Are the libs pushing Cain because they THINK they can beat him? Are they too stupid to realize Cain can win? Or what?

    Our candidates, Cain, Perry, Bachman, Romney (hard to call him one of 'our' candidates, Gingrich) have each debate ignored energy independence and foreign relations. I realize the economy is critical to here and now, but so is China and a more pressing threat, that is pointing out Obama and Hillary have caused Sharia Law to take control of Egypt and looks like Libya. Pointing out the backfire of the Obama Arab Spring is a softball ready to wack. So what are the real reasons these have been ignored in the debates, commercials, interviews? Am I wrong? What have I missed....

    Campaigning for the 2012 presidential race has already begun, but what the candidates don't know is that come election day, hackers could be the ones whose votes have the biggest impact. Researchers from the Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois have developed a hack that, for about $26 and an 8th-grade science education, can remotely manipulate the electronic voting machines used by millions of voters all across the U.S. Read more:
