    8 years of GWB and all I saw was dead soldiers on the nightly news Then Obama had command for 8 years and the dead soldiers disappeared, even as the death toll tripled Now Trump is in charge and traitor soldiers are being molly coddled and given a pat on the bum.

    The new Hello Barbie, showed off at the New York Toy Fair on Saturday, will actually be able to listen to kids’ words and change its own language to adapt to their preferences, BBC reports. Tell Barbie you like dancing, and she’ll mention dancing in a later conversation, for example. A speech-recognition company called ToyTalk is programming Barbie’s speaking and listening capabilities. The necklace on the doll will feature both the microphone and the speaker that help enable the conversations. Hello Barbie will retail for $74.99 when it launches, likely in time for the holiday season. The doll requires a...
  • Pastoral Perspectives on Silence in Church

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | September 22, 2013 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    One of the more frequent concerns expressed by many Catholics is level of talking and other noise in churches in recent decades. Many of us who are a bit older remember a time when to walk even into a rather full Church was to walk into a realm of great silence. People just didn’t talk in church. One would enter, find their pew, genuflect, and then kneel for private prayer before Mass began. When Mass concluded, one might kneel for a brief while for prayer, but then leave quietly, not talking until in the vestibule or outside the church. Even...
  • NSA employees given (Thanksgiving) talking points for discussing agency with family

    Guardian ^ | 12/02/13 | Spencer Ackerman
    **SNIP** ...the NSA evidently compiled a two-page document, dated November 22, giving instructions for discussing the highly secretive agency with “family and close friends”. Among the points officials are “authorized to share” this holiday season: “The NSA’s mission is of great value to the nation”; it performs its missions “exceptionally well”; and its employees are “loyal Americans with expert skills”. NSA officials did not respond to questions about the talking points, their preparation and their veracity. While most of the talking points simply provide that level of uncritical assurance, several pass along disputable or disputed claims – things that can...

    1. Hey remember when you said that Obamacare was going to work great, and then, when people asked you how it actually worked, you sort of implied they were stupid for not knowing, and yet you never provided any evidence that you had any idea of how it was supposed to work yourself? Yeah, you were wrong to do that. 2. Remember when you called me crazy for saying Obama wanted to "spread the wealth around," based on not a scrap of evidence except for Obama himself saying he wanted to spread the wealth around? Yeah, there's a NYT article...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein says the talking points used on the Sunday news shows following the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, were wrong, adding that the administration should have been quicker in calling it a terrorist act. “I think the talking points were wrong,” the California Democrat who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Sunday on NBC´s “Meet the Press.” “I think the talking points should not be written by the intelligence community.” “Unfortunately," she added, "the word extremist was used which isn’t not as crystal clear as terrorist.”

As I understand it, as I’ve been told, it was a typical interagency process where staff, including from the State Department, all participated, to try to come up with whatever was going to be made publicly available, and it was an intelligence product.” — Then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Jan. 23, 2013 This column has been updated New information is raising questions about the development of the administration’s talking points on the deadly attack on the diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans, including the ambassador, dead.

    With the onset of the general election campaign, the liberals will, at the behest of Team Obama, will resort to their daily dose of “kool-aid”…err, I mean talking points. Time to debunk the myth – The Obama Administration put out a report in 2009 called The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan. In it, the Obama Administration predicted that the stimulus package would keep unemployment under 8%.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/18/12 | Conn Carroll
    President Obama is expected to announce he is killing the Keystone XL pipeline project later today and will audaciously blame Republicans for forcing him to do it. Here is how White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer messaged on the decision last December: "The House bill simply shortens the review process in a way that virtually guarantees that the pipeline will NOT be approved." Obama is also expected to say today that TransCanada is free to reapply for the permit after it develops an alternate route through the sensitive Nebraska’s Ogallala Aquifer habitat. Both these talking points are completely bogus. The...

    University of Missouri ^ | August 22, 2011 | Unknown
    COLUMBIA, Mo. – A new University of Missouri study finds that boys feel that discussing problems is a waste of time. “For years, popular psychologists have insisted that boys and men would like to talk about their problems but are held back by fears of embarrassment or appearing weak,” said Amanda J. Rose, associate professor of psychological sciences in the MU College of Arts and Science. “However, when we asked young people how talking about their problems would make them feel, boys didn’t express angst or distress about discussing problems any more than girls. Instead, boys’ responses suggest that they...

    Over the last few years, with an economy in decline and the rise of certain developing nations, there have been murmurs of the end of American exceptionalism throughout the media. Don’t believe a word of it, says syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer. On the Christmas Eve edition of Fox News Channel’s “Happening Now,” Krauthammer was asked to reflect on the last two years. He explained there was similar rhetoric about the nation’s decline at the end of the 1970s. “Well, I think this is mostly a reflection of the recession,” Krauthammer said. “The mood of the country...

    With his second term set to expire at the end of next year, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is widely considered a likely contender for the 2012 Republican nomination. Pawlenty took a step toward raising his national profile recently when he formed a political action committee, called Freedom First. Last Friday, TAS's Philip Klein spoke to Gov. Pawlenty over the phone to get his reaction to the Democrats' current health care push. The following is a transcript of the exchange.

What if it means that, one day, your auto insurance company will know that you regularly arrive home on weekends at 2:15 a.m., just after the bars close? Welcome to the complex world of the Smart Grid, which may very well pit environmental concerns against thorny privacy issues. If you think such debates are purely philosophical, you’re behind the times.
