  • How do we prevent Obama from resigning?

    If Obama should resign, all his activities and "accomplishments" will remain in effect! If he is impeached and convicted, all his Executive Orders, signatures on passed laws, become NULL and VOID thus setting the stage back to January 20, 2009 before he took that oath (that's debatable) If we impeach him now, Harry Reid will trash it in the Senate thus preventing the trial and conviction. So the question is this: How do we keep him from resigning before the Republicans can take over the Senate?

    90% of domestic beer sold in the US is made by two companies: Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors. Two companies, Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors, are responsible for selling more than 90% of the beer in the US. Americans consume about 6.3 billion gallons (23.85 billion liters) of beer per year and spend an estimated $200 billion US Dollars per year on beer. Anheuser-Busch InBev produced three of the top-five selling beers in the US in 2011, and MillerCoors produced the other two. In 2011, small, independent craft breweries accounted for about 6% of all beer sales in the US, up from...

    All of the water in the atmosphere would equal about 1 inch (2.54 cm) of all of the world's oceans' depth. The Earth's atmosphere does not contain a large amount of water. Its estimated volume of water is about 3,100 cubic miles (12,900 cubic kilometers), which is roughly just 0.001% of all of the water on Earth. In fact, if all of the water in the atmosphere was released at one time, it would equal only about 1 inch (2.54 cm) of the world's oceans' depth. The atmosphere's function with water is more transportation rather than storage. As water evaporates,...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | January 24, 2013 | Examiner Editorial Staff
    f there was one constant through Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's appearances before congressional committees Wednesday, it was that lawmakers fell all over themselves heaping praise on her for the job she has done. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., was typical, saying: "Madame Secretary, you have represented us with tremendous strength and poise. You have won us friends." (snip) What on Earth are they referring to? American foreign policy under Secretary Clinton has been one disaster after another. She may not deserve blame for all of them -- or even most of them -- but it defies common sense to call...

Don't just skim over this, please read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out.

    Dick Morris: Obama’s sneaky treaties By Dick Morris - 02/07/12 06:53 PM ET President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are entering negotiations over — or seeking ratification of — five treaties that could radically limit our national sovereignty and the reach of our democratic institutions. Particularly scary is that the treaties, once signed and ratified, have the same status as constitutional law and cannot be altered or eclipsed by Congress or state legislatures. And their provisions must be enforced by U.S. courts.

    Thanksgiving 2022 "Winston, come into the dining room, it's time to eat," Julia yelled to her husband. "In a minute, honey, it's a tie score," he answered. Actually Winston wasn't very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington. Ever since the government passed the Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its "unseemly violence" and the "bad example it sets for the rest of the world," Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be. Two-hand touch wasn't nearly as exciting. Yet it wasn't the game that Winston was...

Here are the facts according to the IRS: • Those making more than $1 million pay 24% of income in taxes • Those making $200,000 to $300,000 pay 17.5% • Those making $100,000 to $125,000 pay 9.9% • Those making $50,000 to $60,000 pay 6.3% • Those making $20,000 to $30,000 pay 2.5% And what of millionaires who pay no taxes?

When he's President, he actually has to do things."

Senate Democrats in the 111th Congress got a lot of mileage from procedural cheating (fiscal and legislative) –- and from extorting concessions from Republicans by threatening to cheat.

Taxpayers can type in basic information-such as filing status, wage income and number of dependents-along with optional more detailed information-such as capital gains and dividend income, state and local taxes paid and other itemized deductions-and determine...

It was a dishonest statement because Democrats have been openly floating the specter of passing the health bill using reconciliation since it first became obvious it would have difficulty passing the Senate, including just days before the summit by Sen. Reid himself. It was ironic because it seems that all the cable news shows, talk radio,...

The study shows that in 2007, America’s top 1 percent of tax filers paid 40.4 percent of all federal income taxes— more than the bottom 95 percent of tax filers combined—despite earning about 22.8 percent of the nation’s income

    GOP nominee endorses Democrat after stepping aside under pressure from right By Tony Romm - 11/01/09 03:28 PM ET The Republican in a New York House race that has become a symbol of the divisions within the GOP endorsed her former Democratic rival Sunday, a sharp snub to the third-party conservative who forced her out of the race. Dede Scozzafava, who'd been chosen by local Republican leaders to try to hold the seat for the GOP, instead threw her support behind Democrat Bill Owens -- only a day after she unexpectedly backed out of the tough, three-way special election.

    The Truth About the Health Care Bills Posted August 12, 2009 Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected. To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the...

    Obama Using False Figures to Sell Health Plan Tuesday, August 4, 2009 10:53 AM By: David Limbaugh President Barack Obama is spreading disinformation about healthcare almost as quickly as he's driving up the national debt, such as that 47 million Americans can't get healthcare and that a government takeover would be a panacea. Democrats have constantly demagogued the 47 million uninsured figure to gin up public fear about the scarcity of healthcare access, especially for the poor. They follow up with the promise that under their plan, we would achieve universal access. But both are untrue.

    Even with glimmers of hope for the recovery, consumers are still cutting back — especially when it comes to dining out. But turning to some of fast food's biggest bargains in order to stretch your dollar in the recession may be one belt-tightening measure that could end up forcing you to loosen your buckle by a couple of notches. Going out for cheap eats is an obvious way for consumers to keep their spending in check. That's why fast food restaurants are seen as a good investment in tough times. McDonald's and Yum! Brands, which operates Taco Bell, KFC, and...

    Time for Conservatives to Stop Financing the Left Monday, April 13, 2009 2:15 PM By: Richard A. Viguerie and Mark Fitzgibbons Article Font Size Many liberals despise us conservatives, but they sure love our money. How is it that they get our money? Well, many liberal and supposedly non-ideological nonprofits receive taxpayer funding. In return, they support big government, and oppose conservative values and policies. Many charities are based in Washington, and are part of the Washington establishment that is anathema to conservatives. Taxpayer-financed charities have become sycophants for corrupt politicians and the big-government machine that give them our taxpayer...
