    Normally a 3.0 earthquake is no big deal...unless you are on the 2nd floor of the house. At 4am a 3.0 will wake you up. Only posting due to the extraordinary fires in our area and thought "Great. An earthquake would be probably be perfect right about now". Going back to sleep....
  • Medicaid for All Would 'Bankrupt the Nation,' Warns Bernie Sanders—In 1987

    Reason ^ | Sep. 14, 2017 3:00 pm | Peter Suderman
    Back in 1987, a much younger Bernie Sanders ... warned that expanding Medicaid, the jointly run federal-state health care program for the poor and disabled, to everyone in the country would "bankrupt the nation." "If we expanded Medicaid [to] everybody. Give everybody a Medicaid card—we would be spending such an astronomical sum of money that, you know, we would bankrupt the nation." Medicaid, notably, is far less generous than Medicare, the health program for seniors that Sanders wants to expand. Medicaid's provider networks are narrower, and its benefits are generally more limited. It pays doctors quite a bit less than...

    No need to quit your job to start. Just begin laying the groundwork for a more prosperous future in your spare time. Would an extra $500 a month change your financial future? That is definitely possible. In fact, you could earn a lot more per month as a blogger. Once you are in a position to commit full-time to your blog, you can rise up to the $5000 per month income level. That and much more is also possible. Being your own boss means you get to choose your salary.
  • John Kasich: TPP Trade Deal ‘Critical’

    MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — GOP presidential candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich came out in support of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement during the fourth GOP primary debate hosted by Fox Business, saying the deal is “critical.” “The trade agreement – the TPP – it’s critical to us not only for economic reasons and for jobs because there’s so many people who are connected to getting jobs because of trade, but it allows us to create not only economic alliances, but also potentially strateigic alliances against the Chinese,” Kasich argued in support of the nearly 6,000 page agreement –...

    When asked who he would vote for if the presidential race comes down to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the former mayor of Los Angeles and a longtime Republican establishment figure, Dick Riordan, says: "I would probably go find a deserted island." "I think Hillary is disgusting," said Riordan, a wealthy investor who has exceeded $500,000 in political donations throughout his career. "And I think Trump is crazy," Riordan added in a telephone interview Monday. Riordan is not alone. In conversations over the past month, GOP establishment donors have confided to The Hill that for the first time in recent...

    Bringing government spending under control. At the last Republican presidential debate, I presented the Simple Flat Tax - which, for a family of four, exempts the first $36,000 from all income tax, and above that amount collects one low rate of 10 percent for all Americans. It eliminates the death tax, the payroll tax, the corporate income tax, and the Obamacare taxes; ends the corporate carve-outs and loopholes; and requires every business to pay the same simple business flat tax of 16 percent. That plan will unleash unprecedented growth, create millions of new jobs, raise after-tax incomes for all income...
  • Rep. Franks defends Wil Cardon against vicious Club for Growth hits(CFG backed Jeff McFlake)

    06/21/2015 2:52:45 AM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 2 replies
    U. S. Rep. Trent Franks has taped this 30-second spot supporting AZ Senate candidate Wil Cardon, in which he unequivocally endorses Cardon as a “job creator,” “conservative Reagan Republican” and someone with the “business skills we need in the Senate to fix this economy.” Cardon began his campaign for the AZ U.S. Senate seat after Jon Kyl announced his retirement. Seeing Red AZ applauds Congressman Trent Franks for his enthusiastic support of businessman Wil Cardon. Franks’ message that “Wil Cardon will be a true conservative Republican senator we can trust” speaks between-the-lines volumes since he has served with Flake for...

  • Benghazi attacks omitted TWICE by State Department - 'Rewards for Justice program', Terror report

    10/29/2013 12:30:01 PM PDT · by Frankusa · 21 replies
    Republican lawmakers want to know why the Al Qaeda terrorists involved in the Benghazi attacks were excluded from the State Department’s Rewards for Justice program, a program which offers huge cash payments for tips leading to the capture of wanted terrorists. Fox News reported that a ranking Republican lawmaker believes this is "more evidence that the Obama White House wants to minimize the terrorism angle in that attack." In a related post on Thursday, I noted that Thomas Joscelyn of The Long War Journal reported that: The UN, on Oct. 18, added Muhammad Jamal al Kashef - who previously served...

    One of the great things about being a nature lover is that your powers of observation seem to improve. While others are walking by, oblivious to the activities going on all around them, naturalists notice the creatures and the behaviors, especially if they are out of the ordinary. Such was the case on March 24, 2012, a sunny Saturday morning, when Ginger Morneau, her husband Ken, and brother Lou Baker were walking along the Ogden Point Breakwater in Victoria, BC. The breakwater is a favourite spot for locals and visitors, reaching out about a half mile from the waterfront south...

    BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, Texas (AP) -- The bloody drug war in Mexico shows no sign of relenting. Neither do calls for tighter border security amid rising fears of spillover violence. This hardly seems a time the U.S. would be willing to allow people to cross the border legally from Mexico without a customs officer in sight. But in this rugged, remote West Texas terrain where wading across the shallow Rio Grande undetected is all too easy, federal authorities are touting a proposal to open an unmanned port of entry as a security upgrade. By the spring, kiosks could open...

    Is MSNBC merely a lost leader for the National Debocrat Party? If the Debtocrats stopped their financial support, could the leading talking heads at MSNBC find another anchor job? At a time when jobs, jobs, jobs, are so important, important, important, one needs to fear, fear, fear! Consider Chrissy "Shout-down-all-of-your-guests-who-disagree-with-you" Matthews. Not a lot of hope for a change in him. Maybe as a reporter on labor activities? Hope, and Change, Hope and Change, Hope and Change has just GOT to work someday - - - ? And then there is the gal infected, (terminally, I'm told), with the horrifying...

    A Mexico win would serve as convincing evidence that Mexico is once again the unquestioned leader in the region. It would also provide a confidence boost for a talented young team that could wind up ruling CONCACAF for the foreseeable future. And a United States win? If the US team can knock off Mexico’s Golden Boys, it would give the Americans their third Gold Cup title in four tournaments and continued bragging rights in a series they've dominated for the better part of a decade. It would also give the current US team a head start on Mexico as both...

    SIERRA VISTA — Living next door to Fort Huachuca, there aren’t many communities like ours that offer such a large variety of programs to support veterans, the military and their families. From providing food vouchers to helping with post traumatic stress or combating homelessness among the state’s veterans, there is no lack of organizations to aid current and former service members. However, this means that there seems to be a perpetual thin spread of money to go around to these programs. For this reason, Boots For Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that helps raise money on behalf of veterans’ organizations,...
