    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department says it is looking into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges now that George Zimmerman has been acquitted in the state case.
  • MAYBE IT'S NOT AN ACCIDENT (good read)

    If you're playing basketball and the guy elbows you under the net, it's an accident. The first time. After that, you've got to figure he's doing it on purpose. That's how life is. Once is a fluke, twice is a pattern. When somebody does something over and over, it's pretty hard to believe that it's not on purpose. It's pretty hard to believe that he's not gunning for you. Like the federal government. At this stage, it's pretty hard to believe that its incompetence isn't on purpose. It's pretty hard to avoid the conclusion that somebody has decided to put...

    The Bright Side Of Hell:Obama’s win has its good points by Daniel Clark In the wake of President Obama’s reelection, conservatives are reacting as if America as we know it will no longer exist. And you know what? They’re right. Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America in 2008, and he’s got the job well underway by now. The question is, why does that have to be a negative? Evidently, a majority of voters don’t think it is, so maybe they’ve got a point. If you can’t understand how, just take a minute to consider the following list of reasons why...
  • Election 2012 Freedom or Totalitarianism

    11/05/2012 5:25:25 PM PST · by charlie72 · 3 replies
    The Election of 2012 will determine whether America will be a nation of individuals living in freedom or a collective under totalitarian control. It is not about race or allegiance to a life-long political party of our parents in which my team can beat your team, or vice versa, but allegiance to one nation under God in which there is liberty and justice for all rather than the few in power. We will individually become responsible for living under the law of the Constitution, or we will collectively live under the whims of dictators as in Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela,...
  • Obama to transform U.S. military into social workers New focus on 'global warming,' poverty,

    Progressive organizations behind White House policy have crafted specific, second-term plans for President Obama to transform the U.S. Armed Forces into a social work-style organization designed to combat “global warming,” fight global poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and increase “peacekeeping” forces worldwide. The groups, already instrumental in influencing Obama’s first-term defense agenda, call for massive, second-term slashes to the military budget. The savings are to be used to invest in “sustainable energy” and in fighting worldwide climate change. The schemes, and many more, are documented in the soon-to-be-released book “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next...

    When Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States” we could not have anticipated the extreme transformations he would seek. The evidence is rolling in that he is determined to transform America into a totally secular land where religion is permitted only within the walls of a church, but is banned in every public place, public gathering and public school. Obama tipped us off to his animosity to religious Americans when, campaigning in San Francisco in 2008, he insulted religious people in small towns. He said, they “get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people...

    Gov. Scott Walker on Monday unveiled a $100 million two-year "Transform Milwaukee" plan aimed at focusing his administration's top economic resources on one of the poorest sections of Milwaukee's inner city. The plan is meant to coordinate the resources of multiple state agencies with the city and other economic development entities. It includes efforts to reoccupy foreclosed and vacant properties, provide loans and venture funding for small businesses and industrial development, and improve freight and intermodal transportation to foster the revitalization of industry. Other elements include a survey of the inner city workforce to inventory worker skills and learn what...

    The White House on Thursday is expected to unveil its proposal to enhance the nation's cybersecurity, laying out plans to require industry to better protect systems that run critical infrastructure like the electrical grid, financial systems and nuclear power plants. The Obama administration also is insisting that companies tell consumers when their personal information has been compromised. According to cybersecurity experts familiar with the plan, the administration's proposed legislation also would instruct federal agencies to more closely monitor their computer networks. Several House and Senate committees have been working on cybersecurity legislation for the past two years, while waiting for...

    There’s an interesting post up at The Weekly Standard about President Obama’s odd (to say the least) behavior. The theory is that he’s trying to rev up his base so the Democrats avoid electoral disaster in November. [...] I don’t know. That could be part of it. But I think there’s more to it. He’s probably well aware that his party could lose the majority in Congress, so he’s in a hurry to fundamentally transform America while the window’s still open. He’s not your run of the mill politician who’s interested only in re-election. He’s a man on a mission,...

    I posted this to my blog a while ago now (before I joined up here), but watching the way Obama has been acting lately, especially with that ridiculous marathon response he gave to a simple question of over-taxation I wanted to share it here I'm not sure why the text is in light brown...maybe he's electing to not use his "negro dialect." Perhaps we were all a little quick to judge Harry Reid. The Looking Spoon is a conservative humor/satire/art/commentary blog, visit www.thelookingspoon.com to see more posts!

    We could have taken our Chevy to McCain’s Auto Repair. The gruff, veteran mechanic might not have gotten to all the items on our “to-do” list. But he would have made minor adjustments, so that our car ran more smoothly. Instead, we took it to Smiling Barack’s Used Cars, where the smooth-talking salesman persuaded us to trade in our Chevy for a Yugo. The Yugo rarely runs at all, as Europeans could have told us after decades of experience. But it was made according to socialist principles, so we will be told not to complain.

    WASHINGTON — If Illinois Sen. Barack Obama can replicate what he did in South Carolina, he could be on the verge of seizing control of the Democratic nomination and perhaps changing American politics. In Iowa, he forged a new coalition of young voters, newcomers to politics, and change-hungry Americans surging to the polls in record-shattering numbers. Adding a new element, he rolled up a huge majority among African Americans. This does not mean he seized the nomination, or even the title of front-runner. The old politics dies hard. He lost close contests in New Hampshire and Nevada. And Hillary Clinton...
  • Club works to transform veterans' cemetery

    SIERRA VISTA — This is no ordinary green thumb project. The Sierra Vista Garden Club has an ambitious goal of transforming the Southern Arizona Veterans’ Cemetery with drought-tolerant plants and trees — not only to improve the look, but honor veterans. The club wants to keep the state-run 147-acre burial ground as a place of dignity and honor, said Terri Nuti, the cemetery administrator. “Everybody is very enthusiastic about this,” said Janet Brady, club president. “This has sort of become my baby.” Nuti said the cemetery is so grateful to the garden club, because it frees up the small staff...

    ELLINGTON FIELD, Texas -- The Texas Air National Guard stood up Task Force Compassion here to provide Hurricane Rita evacuees medical support and to evacuate non-critical patients from overburdened local hospitals. Task force Airmen and Soldiers began setting up a 10-bed medical treatment facility overnight in Ellington’s abandoned base exchange and opened for business Sept. 26. The treatment facility has 47 medics from the 147th Medical Group here, the 149th MG at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, the 136th MG at Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth and the Army National Guard Support Medical Battalion in San Antonio. “If...

    Anti-Semitism may seem to be a static, unchanging phenomenon but in fact the obsessive hatred of Jews has a history that goes back millennia and continues to evolve.Developments since World War II and the Holocaust have been especially fast-paced and portentous. Here are four of the most significant shifts: From right to left: For centuries, anti-Semitism was the hallmark of the right and merely episodic on the left. To take the ultimate examples of these trends, Stalin's Judeophobia was peripheral to his monstrous project, but Hitler's was central to his. Even a decade ago, this pattern still basically held true....

    Che Guevara is more than just a sleazy tee shirt on an aging leftwinger's food-dribbled chest. Che Guevara is a live emblem of hemispheric terror, kidnapping and murder. And not just in the 1960s but happening right now. Today! The news, still in only Spanish, has just come out this afternoon. Colombia's government just released a tape proving, without a shadow of a doubt, that filthy Marxist narcoterrorist FARC and ELN guerrillas are operating a string of working terrorist camps inside Venezuela. And not just inside Venezuela in the way we thought they were, as Hugo Chavez-hosted recreational guerrilla spas,...

    He's won. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has succeeded in cutting taxes. In Italy. The captain of his nation's ship, who had gripped the helm and vowed to hurl his entire balking government over the side if they refused to stand with him, took a tremendous risk. But last night, the storm ebbed and Berlusconi sailed to victory. Tax cuts, $8.6 billion, are coming at last to high-tax Italy, a country whose previous governments had driven 25% of its economy underground, and much more underwater, with Italy's crushing 43% of GNP tax burden. This portends well for tax-cutting in the...

    CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - President Bush and top military leaders are gathering at his ranch Friday to talk over their efforts to make the U.S. military more mobile and responsive. Vice President Dick Cheney arrived in Texas on Thursday, ahead of the Friday meeting with Bush, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and other military leaders, including Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They plan to discuss Rumsfeld's plans to transform the military into a sophisticated, lighter force able to mobilize quickly in response to crises around the world. "They will be talking about the administration's commitment...
