    Industry blasts suggestion as harmful to the country. A conservation group that has succeeded in dealing recent legal setbacks to western Colorado coal mines called Thursday for a phase-out of federal coal leasing to help combat climate change. “It’s time for the Interior Department to shut it down,” Jeremy Nichols, Climate and Energy Program director for WildEarth Guardians, said in a news release. The group outlined a plan for ending the federal coal program over 10 to 25 years through a moratorium on leasing publicly owned coal, retiring existing leases that aren’t producing, honestly reporting the climate impacts of the...
  • American Values - F Words

    02/06/2012 5:24:03 AM PST · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | February 6, 2012 | Lurita Doan
    Americans seem to have become accustomed to the casual use of the “F” word, with celebrities tracking, proudly, the number of times they “drop the “f” bomb” in public. The frequent use of the “f” word has coarsened our public discourse. But, many of our most emblematic American values, the very characteristics that shape our national character and contribute to American exceptionalism, have been given a bad rep by liberals because they, too, are “F” words. Freedom from an overly intrusive government that thinks that only government knows what is best for Americans. Democrats prefer to support over-expansive government intrusiveness...

    When William F. Buckley met Saul Alinsky, one of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s biggest influences. Unfortunately, only five minutes of this December 1967 edition of Buckley’s seminal Firing Line program is online the above clip, but you can read a transcript of the entire interview at the Hoover Institute, or buy a DVD of the program for ten bucks from Amazon. At one point, Buckley describes Alinsky’s philosophy: Look, this is a program of things we want, if you don’t give it to us, we’re going to make it impossible for Chicago to continue commercial or civic life at...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) ^ | 10/31/10 | Staff
    In an already nasty election year, outspoken San Francisco defense attorney Tony Serra has unfurled a huge banner in front of his building near busy and tourist-heavy Broadway and Kearny streets in North Beach, stating “F*** Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina.” (snip) “To utterly condemn someone, that’s what the “F” word means to me, and that’s the way it’s intended, but I think they’re a threat to democracy itself. Capitalism cannot buy public office,” Serra said in an interview.

    It’s been a year since Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States, the first African-American to hold the nation’s highest office. It’s been a year of highs and lows, from winning the Nobel Peace Prize to adding trillions of dollars to the national debt by enacting massive government spending programs – while continuing to battle for a nearly $1 trillion overhaul of the nation’s health care system. His job approval rating also have gone from high to low, down nearly 20 points since taking office. How would you grade President Obama’s first year in office?

    Mr. President, it's time to face the music and help America to do the same. This Wednesday evening, you will give your State of the Union speech. And millions upon millions of us are wondering whether you will sugarcoat the truth again — whether you will pad your performance over this past year or confess that the plans and path Washington is taking are plummeting our country deeper into the abyss. If you convey the real status of the union, then you must confess that we are truly no better off (and much worse off in many respects) than we...

    President Barack Obama gets a grade of “F” for his first year in office. President Obama has failed the American people on nearly all of his campaign promises. He campaigned on fiscal discipline, transparency, bipartisanship and job creation, but has failed miserably on all these pledges.

    he Wall Street Journal is reporting the following about GM's sort-of sale of Hummer to the Chinese: “While many believe the deal will have difficulty garnering regulatory approval in China, others said they wouldn’t rule out the possibility that the government will support the deal so that Hummer’s technology could be used to improve China’s military vehicles. Andrew Chen, an investment manager for in Pittsburgh, who has been following the deal closely, said Sichuan historically has been a home for production of Chinese military automobiles. He speculated that the government may be encouraging the deal and might even help...

    The report card is in for the Obama Adminstration. The grades are bad, but the troubling thing is that these economists were very confident just a couple of months ago that the President and his team were completely capable of handling the problem. Remember the nauseating David Brooks telling us how brilliant Obama's cabinet was. How's that working out for you now David?

    Isn't MSNBC the most off-the-hinges left wing whack job bastardized substitution for journalism in existence? Isn't it the home of the inventive and mostly imaginative and seldom true ramblings of Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann where venting against all things Christian or Conservative are demonized and the only acceptable form of worship IS Obama as Messiah? So how on earth will MSNBC explain that at 3pm EST on Wednesday, MSNBC web traffickers are FLUNKING "President Jebus" by 60%?

    AUGUSTA, Maine — Lawmakers will begin hearings this week on more than $1.3 billion worth of bond proposals to fund everything from land conservation and home weatherization to repairs of college buildings and historic meetinghouses. But with the country in the grips of a major recession and Mainers cutting their own budgets, legislators will have to carefully weigh how much debt voters will be willing to stomach when the bond proposals appear on the ballot. “These are not normal times and we can’t treat this as just another bond package,” said Sen. Kevin Raye from Perry, who is the Senate...

    Despite just receiving $13.4 billion in government loans, General Motors (GM) hopes to make another federal cash withdrawal, probably in early 2009. GM spokesman Greg Martin noted the automaker had originally requested $18 billion in "bridge loans" and revolving credit from the government in late November to help survive the recession. Instead, talks stalled in Congress and the Bush administration acted on its own to approve $17.4 billion in loans, with $4 billion going to Chrysler.

    Keeping track of the ever mutating bailout debate is becoming increasingly difficult. With the Federal money spigots now thrown wide open, and with no one of influence advising restraint, the only debate is where to direct the torrent. During the past week, the talk began with Detroit and Citigroup, but by Friday had shifted to a massive "stimulus package" to bail out consumers. The early buzz includes some very large figures. But first, a bit of a recap: On Monday, the $300 billion Citigroup bailout took center stage. Once again Henry Paulson decided to throw taxpayer funds into a bottomless...

    New York, March 8 (ANI): A new book on Bill Clinton's post-presidential life reportedly claims that he had an affair with New Yorker Denise Rich whose ex-husband, Marc, was famously pardoned by the former US President. 'The Clinton Crack-Up' authored by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., a prominent anti-Clintonite who founded the American Spectator also claims that Madame Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, knew about the whole affair. "Denise Rich's contact with Clinton began long before Hillary confided her allegations to Representative [now Speaker] Nancy Pelosi that Bill 'f-' Denise," the New York Daily News quoted Tyrrell as writing. The source for the...
