    The Florida Current ^ | 1/15/13 | Bill Cotterell
    Near the beginning of a polite but frank sit-down between Gov. Rick Scott and black state lawmakers, state Sen. Arthenia Joyner cordially told the governor, "We differ on a lot of things." "You're kidding," Scott replied in mock surprise. As the 23 black House and Senate members laughed, he quickly added, "I care about jobs and education, and I'm sure you do, too." For the next hour and 10 minutes, the political-philosophy gulf between the wealthy Republican governor and the black Democrats who represent some of the poorest people in Florida was starkly obvious. They aired their differences on health...

    **SNIP** “We have a fiscal problem in this country. We’ve got to deal with it or we don’t have a country, so to kind of help make that point, just a little bit, I charge liberals just a little bit more. Really what I’m focused on is the fiscal differences between big government/small government and liberal ways, as far as entitlements and spending,” said Burnett, in a KSL.com report. Burnett says the extra money will go to support the conservative Washngton-based think tank, The Heritage Foundation. Burnett, also a pro-oil and gas activist, plainly lists prices for his drinks, with...

    The United States faces a “material risk” of losing its AAA status if there is a repeat of the wrangling seen in 2011 over raising the country’s self-imposed debt ceiling, credit ratings firm Fitch said on Tuesday. The United States scraped up against its $16.4 trillion debt ceiling on Dec. 31 and is now employing special measures to meet its financial obligations. The Treasury Department said those steps could be exhausted by mid-February. Despite December’s deal by U.S. politicians to avoid the “fiscal cliff” of spending cuts and tax hikes, Fitch’s head of sovereign ratings, David Riley, said pressure on...

    The boss of Italian carmaker Fiat has warned that Europe's embattled car industry will 'unravel' unless the European Union steps into co-ordinate urgent cuts in capacity across the continent. Sergio Marchionne, who is also chief executive of US carmaker Chrysler, said that the biggest carmakers in Europe probably lost about €5bn in 2012 as sales in the region fell for a fifth straight year. With sales forecast to decline for a sixth year in 2013, most experts believe that the industry needs to embark on significant retrenchment to better match the weakened state of demand from drivers. "I've been an...

    Nobody would like to know the answer to that more than the French. But they must keep the Afghanistan example in mind Those days are over,” said France’s President Francois Hollande last month, when asked if French forces would intervene in the war between Islamist insurgents who have seized the northern half of Mali and the Government in Bamako. But the days in question weren't over for very long. Last Friday France sent a squadron of fighter-bombers to the West African country to stop the Islamist fighters from taking over the capital. “We are making air raids the whole time”,...

    Germany’s Bundesbank is to repatriate gold reserves held abroad to tighten control and combat currency crises in the future, pulling a chunk of its holdings from New York and all its bullion from Paris. The move marks an extraodinary breakdown in trust between leading central banks and has set off ferment among gold enthusiasts, with some comparing it with France’s withdrawal of gold from the US under President Charles de Gaulle as the Bretton Woods currency system crumbled in the early 1970s. Handelsblatt said the Bundesbank will announce on Wednesday that it intends to relocate the gold to vaults in...

    This is a brutal example of how far the struggle between muslims and catholics in Nigeria has reached. Muslims are determined to impose their 'religion' all over Africa as well as in other continents and countries of the world. Islam has but one goal: rule the world at any cost." "And where are the International Human Rights Organizations? Christians are burnt alive in Nigeria: a horrific Holocaust right in front of International indifference. As denounced by Father Juan Carlos Martos, on behalf of the Missionari Clarettiani, via del Sacro Cuore di Maria, Rome, Italy."

    Tea Party Tribune ^ | 2013-01-15 20:29:59 | mrcurmudgeon
    By Mr. Curmudgeon: President Ronald Reagan's Attorney General, Edwin Meese, told NewsMax that if President Obama issues an Executive Order unilaterally imposing gun control, bypassing Congress, the 44th president risks impeachment. The former top cop is very old fashioned, and out of touch with modern America.By old fashion, I mean Meese's presumption that America is a nation of laws and not men. That Obama believes he can rule by royal proclamation is a product of supreme confidence; a confidence born of the eroding force of law on government power. Re-interpretations by the nation's Progressive high court allow today's government to...
