    First ever vanity - Was watching the Minnesota-Dallas game on Fox when this misleading ad came on to claim how all these people are "covered" for healthcare for things like check-ups and accidents. TOTAL BS!!!!!! Given the monthly payments and the out of sight deductibles I've seen quoted in multiple articles, they aren't "covered"!!! They still have to pay $$$ out of pocket for those types of expenses until they meet their deductible which will happen NEVER for a normal family that doesn't have a catastrophic illness. Oh, and the Cowboys just now finally scored a TD to open the...
  • DNI chief Clapper apologizes for ‘clearly erroneous’ answer to Congress on NSA data collection

    07/02/2013 3:03:40 PM PDT · by mandaladon · 19 replies
    WASHINGTON — National Intelligence Director James Clapper is apologizing for telling Congress earlier this year that the National Security Agency does not collect data on millions of Americans. In a letter to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, Clapper says his answer was “clearly erroneous.” Leaks by NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden have revealed the NSA’s sweeping data collection of U.S. phone records and some Internet traffic every day, though U.S. intelligence officials have said the programs are aimed at targeting foreigners and terrorist suspects overseas. Clapper was asked in March if the NSA gathered “any type of data at...

    Just when you thought yesterday’s dismal jobs numbers couldn’t get any worse -- they did. According to CNSNews.com, nearly seventy-five percent of all civilian jobs created since the beginning of last summer are in the public sector: Seventy-three percent of the new civilian jobs created in the United States over the last five months are in government, according to official data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In June, a total of 142,415,000 people were employed in the U.S, according to the BLS, including 19,938,000 who were employed by federal, state and local governments.

    Is it possible that Mitt is an inexperienced and undisciplined candidate, or should we begin viewing his comments as trial balloons? The latest possible trial balloon came this past Monday in an interview with Larry Kudlow. In that discussion, Romney relates the situation in Aurora, Colorado to his time in Massachusetts when he was able to ban weapons such as the AR15, one of America's favorite sporting rifles. Romney...the law that we signed in Massachusetts was a combination of efforts both on the part of those that were for additional gun rights and those that opposed gun rights,...Where there are...
  • Elliott Abrams Caught Misleading on Newt

    As Ronald Reagan used to say: Well. Yesterday we took note of former Reagan State Department official Elliott Abrams' piece over at NRO that went after Newt Gingrich on his relationship with Reagan. While voting regularly with Reagan as a young congressman from Georgia, Gingrich, claimed Abrams, "often spewed insulting rhetoric at Reagan, his top aides and his policies to defeat Communism." Abrams then goes on to cite " a famous floor statement Gingrich made on March 21, 1986." Or sort of cites it. In fact, I'm sorry to say, what appears to be going on here is that Elliott...

    Just days after praising his rival GOP presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich took aim at Rick Santorum’s congressional record and said he would be considered the “junior partner” in a match-up between the two Republican hopefuls. “If you think of us as partners, he would clearly in historical experience have been the junior partner,” Gingrich said Thursday on the campaign trail. “He’s not a bad person, I want to be clear about this, but I don’t know that he has any track record of being able to organize a large-scale campaign.”

Attention Mr. Romney and Mr. Gingrich: Right To Work is not a states’ rights issue, it is a freedom issue. The Federal government should not mandate compulsory unionism. It appears that Forced Unionism is a Big Government idea that Newt & Mitt embrace. In fact,...

The 18 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters look like Republicans in many ways, but they hold more conservative views on a range of issues and tend to be older than Republicans generally.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When President Barack Obama visits Charlotte, N.C., Friday to tour Celgard, a battery-parts maker that has received $49 million in stimulus money, he's sure to tout how the government money will put people to work. The government says that stimulus spending created up to 2.1 million jobs as of Dec. 31, including 62,000 in North Carolina. Celgard got its stimulus grant to help with expanding its Charlotte plant and building a new one in Concord, N.C., and has said the expansions will create about 300 local jobs. Celgard's claims about job creation will play out over the...

    “It is almost impossible to know who is the government and who the lobbyists. They have merged into one single animal with different faces.” – Dr. Gabriel Calzada, Spanish economics professor and researcher BACKGROUND: Last March, Spanish economics professor Gabriel Calzada published an academic analysis that showed for every green job created in Spain, 2.2 jobs were lost as an opportunity cost. This finding contradicted the Obama Administration’s claim that massive subsidies for wind and solar energy would create jobs. Calzada’s study gained national attention from the media and policymakers, making it difficult for the Administration to advance such failed...

Net Neutrality, for those who have better things to worry about, is a proposal for the government to regulate internet service providers to force them to give the same priority to all types of data (i.e. an email transmission must be treated the same as a song download). The battle lines are drawn according to self-interest: content providers such as...

He said he sponsored a bill to prevent horse slaughter in the Illinois state Senate and has been repeatedly endorsed by...

    At least 50,000 Iraqis have died violently since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, according to statistics from the Baghdad morgue, the Iraqi Health Ministry and other agencies — a toll 20,000 higher than previously acknowledged by the Bush administration. Many more Iraqis are believed to have been killed but not counted because of serious lapses in recording deaths in the chaotic first year after the invasion, when there was no functioning Iraqi government, and continued spotty reporting nationwide since. The toll, which is mostly of civilians but probably also includes some security forces and insurgents, is daunting: Proportionately, it is equivalent...

Official data from the Paris-based OECD highlighted how fast the country, still Communist Party-controlled, has emerged as an economic power that the United States and other long-industrialized countries can no longer ignore. China exported $180 billion worth of ICT (information and communication technology) goods in 2004, compared with U.S. exports of $149 billion, the OECD, a free-market organization whose 30-country membership does not include China, said.

Harry Reid is spewing misinformation and falsehood so rapidly, one is left to wonder if he is profoundly ignorant and uninformed or simply so mendacious that he has become comfortable with deception and falsehood.

    Many in the mainstream news media declared John Kerry the winner of last night's Presidential Debate before the candidiates had even walked off the floor, demonstrating once again that the American people cannot get a fair assessment from the people who purport to uphold the First Ammendment of our Constitution. MSNBC's coverage was perhaps the most biased of all the major Networks and cable news outlets. Within ten seconds of the debate's conclusion Andrea Mitchell declared a decisive victory for Kerry. Then Ron Reagan gleefully mocked the President with the same intellectually-dishonest, mean-spirited tone that has come to define him....

    Putin: Ally or Terrorist? by William F. Jasper Counting Vladimir Putin as an ally against terrorism ignores his career in the murderous KGB/FSB and his ongoing support for terrorist regimes and organizations. ‘‘Lena Goncharuk, aged 38, said that she was the only one to survive out of a group of six who were ordered out of the cellar where they had been hiding and shot at point blank range. Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...

    The federal government is fining a resident of Maine $10,000 for going to church. Richard Albert, 52, of the remote northern hamlet of Township 15 Range 15, said the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection recently notified him of two $5,000 fines for twice crossing from Quebec into Maine on a Sunday, when the border station is closed. Albert's home is 30 yards from the Canadian border, beside the U.S. Customs office. The church is on Quebec's side of the border, which means he has to cross the boundary illegally to attend services. He "said he has been crossing...

    BBC apologises for 'misleading' Paxman editing By Matt Born (Filed: 05/02/2004) The reputation of BBC news suffered another blow yesterday after the corporation said a Jeremy Paxman interview with a police chief had been "edited misleadingly", casting the guest in a bad light. The BBC apologised to David Westwood, Chief Constable of Humberside, after he complained that the interview had been edited to make it look as though he stormed out under difficult questioning. David Westwood: lasting damage Mr Westwood welcomed the apology but said he had been the victim of a "serious injustice". "The damage done by Newsnight's manipulation...

Furthermore, I have solidly backed President Bush's road map for Middle East peace. Yes, in the process I've dealt with moderate Arabs and Muslims.

    ...No current news story is more susceptible to the abuse of anonymous sources than the growing controversy over the accuracy of U.S. intelligence before the war in Iraq. Journalists, especially in the liberal media, are hyperventilating about the failure of the coalition thus far to unearth Saddam Hussein’s stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. Many are pointing to this failure as evidence that the Bush administration "cooked" intelligence on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction programs to justify attacking Iraq... ...These are very serious allegations, but also very difficult to evaluate. It is well-known that there have been elements inside the...

    Ancient DNA may be misleading scientists Tuesday, 18 February 2003 Dating skeletal material with DNA may not be as acurate as thought Ancient DNA in skeletons has a tendency to show damage in a particular region, resulting in misleading genetic data and mistaken conclusions about the origin of the skeleton, British scientists said. A group of researchers at the Henry Wellcome Ancient Biomolecules Centre of the University of Oxford, in Britain, made the finding while studying Viking specimens. They found that about half of the specimens had DNA that suggested they were of Middle Eastern origin. But more detailed analysis...

    Half of Canadians want the federal government to decriminalize possession of marijuana, and support for relaxed laws is not confined to the young. The new survey comes at a time when Justice Minister Martin Cauchon says he is going to remove simple marijuana possession from the Criminal Code, but his boss, Prime Minister Jean Chr?tien, isn't sure. "It certainly says that we are a relatively liberal society on this issue," said Toronto pollster Michael Sullivan. The U.S. has also warned against decriminalization, saying Canada should get over its "reefer madness" if it doesn't want to face the wrath of its...

    BRANDON - Racial politics surfaced in the gubernatorial race Sunday, as Republican Gov. Jeb Bush told largely white crowds that black activists Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were in South Florida on behalf of Democrat Bill McBride - a claim the Democrats both denied and decried.Each camp set out to rally its faithful Sunday. For Bush, that means conservative, mostly white Republicans.For more, go to the source at: http://election2002.tbo.com/election2002/MGAPHX4Y38D.html
