  • Joining the military doesn’t make you a hero (Triple Bagger)

    Boston Globe ^ | 7 Dec 14 | Stephen Kinzer
    Who is a hero? In today’s America, it is someone who chooses a military career, puts on a uniform, and prepares for war. Placing soldiers and veterans on this kind of pedestal is a relatively new phenomenon. Past generations of Americans saw soldiers as ordinary human beings. They were like the rest of us: big and small, smart and dumb, capable of good and bad choices. Now we pretend they are demi-gods. One reason Americans have come to view soldiers as our only protectors is that we have accepted the idea that our country is under permanent threat from fanatics...

    Barack Obama went on the Frank Ski Show Monday at 4:10 PM. President Barack Obama attacked Republicans as ‘un-American’ in an interview on Monday. Obama made the incendiary remarks while speaking to Frank Ski on WHUR-FM, the radio station of Howard University in Washington, D.C. Howard University bills itself as the “nation’s premier Historically Black College and University.” Obama called Republicans “un-American” for efforts to ‘restrict the franchise’ of voting by calling for voter ID laws and moving to curtail early and weekend voting. In April of this year, Obama agreed with a supporter at a Democratic Party fundraiser in...

    To hell with Obama–be un-American. I am! Our country has a great future. But it’s too popular. The U.S. of A. is 23% of global GDP yet sports 28 of the world’s 50 biggest stocks. American markets have outpaced foreign ones for seven years. These things fluctuate. Yes, America has inherent advantages that few see. When I was a young man in the 1970s, tech firms were scattered across the developed world. Since then America has come to dominate tech, almost totally.

    President Barack Obama told his Cabinet on Tuesday to 'be creative' looking for areas where he might be able to govern by executive action given gridlock in Congress that is hampering his agenda. In a White House meeting, Obama brought together the top officials in his government a day after conceding that a deadlocked Congress will prompt him to act on his own authority where he can on an immigration overhaul. Obama said he wants to work with Congress where possible, "but if Congress is unable to do it," then he said his Cabinet officials and agency heads should look...

    At 63, Chuck Schumer can still dance—for awhile. But eventually, age or ambition caught up with the New York senator. On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough grilled Schumer over Harry Reid's accusation, uttered on the floor of the Senate, that the Koch brothers are "un-American." For as long as he could, Schumer moonwalked away from Scarborough's question as to whether the Kochs are un-American. As one of Harry Reid's top lieutenants—and a lean and hungry senator who almost surely aspires to take Reid's leadership role when the opportunity arises—Schumer was on the spot. But Scarborough to his credit was relentless,...

    TWO beliefs continue to shape debate on Obamacare. First, pre-existing medical conditions shouldn’t prevent people from obtaining affordable health insurance. And second, people who don’t want health insurance shouldn’t be forced by the government to purchase it. These may seem to be reasonable positions. But they are incompatible. That’s been shown by historical events, and it’s now being strikingly confirmed by recent experience in the emerging Obamacare insurance exchanges. The crux of the matter is what economists call the adverse-selection problem. Uninsured people with pre-existing conditions often face tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket medical costs...

"Let's explain this redistribution issue because we have not authenticated this 14-year-old tape from Loyola College when Barack Obama was a state senator. So because we have not independently at NBC news and MSNBC authenticated it, we're not airing it," Mitchell said.

Yet, his regime is set to take its place on the panel, in the latest bizarre appointment to make a mockery of the UN's human rights credibility, according to critics.

    With a majority of Americans rallying against the Obama Administration's rule that religious institutions must be forced to provide contraception, it appears that the sentiment is growing. The ObamaCare mandate mainly affects the Catholic Church, but many non-Catholics are making clear their opposition to this government intrusion. It's even spread to Democrats. One Democrat in particular, Senator Joe Manchin, has been unequivocal in his condemnation. Manhcin is up for re-election this year after serving two terms as West Virginia's Governor.

    Over the past several weeks, America has seen on grand display in Washington a singular mindset emanating from the White House: We must raise taxes so that we can keep on spending. This week, though, America was treated to something different—a glimpse inside President Barack Obama’s mind, a roadmap of his economic worldview. And what was revealed was a philosophy that is fundamentally at odds with America’s job creators. That insight came during the President’s press conference on Monday in which he broached the subject of raising taxes as part of the debt limit deal: And I do not want,...

    THERE’S MORE TO IT THAN A SIMPLE BIRTH CERTIFICATE It’s a simple question. Why does Barack Obama appear to be so un-American to so many Americans? First of all, let’s not confuse “un-American” with anti-American here. Barack Obama is generally the former rather than the latter. Heightened interest in Donald Trump’s obsession with Obama’s non-birth certificate, and Jerome Corsi’s coming book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” is in large part, driven by a desire to understand why this president behaves the way he does. It’s simply part of the attempt to solve the elusive puzzle that is Barack Obama. Continuing questions...

How could so many people question President Obama’s birthplace? How could they wonder about his origins? Are they all simply racist?

    The U.S. Department of Education does not serve any clear purpose. The Constitution leaves education to state governments as a residual power. In our history, that did not mean states had to provide education to children at taxpayer expense, although that was the rule throughout the states, at least to a certain age. Only very gradually did the policy of mandatory education spread across the nation, and during those decades in the latter part of the 19th century when education through public grade school became compulsory, it was recognized that parents had the right to to choose instead to educate...

It's "the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government" to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt said. That news, first reported by CNET, effectively pushes the department to the forefront of the issue, beating out other potential candidates including the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

    You need to check out this video of US Congresswoman Betty McCollum leading the pledge of allegiance on the US House floor. What the video shows is what her staff and campaign workers are trying to deny happened. Betty intentionally left out "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance. Her staffers are trying to say she was taking a breath of air and it just looks like she omitted "under God". But after watching the video it is clear she intentionally omitted the phrase. As a representative of the Americans in her district, she is showing utter contempt for...

I want to, before I begin, just say that, Maryland, you are graced with two of the finest senators in the United States Senate in Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin. (Applause.) We are so proud of them.

    CHICAGO (WLS) - The U.S. Justice Department is investigating whether the state of Illinois missed the deadline for mailing absentee ballots to members of the military and other overseas American voters as part of a new federal overseas voting law. Cris Cray, Director of Legislation at the Illinois State Board of Elections, says not all of Illinois' 110 jurisdictions were compliant with the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE). The law requires every state to mail their absentee ballots 45 days prior to Election Day to overseas troops, government employees and other Americans who want to vote from...

    The second largest city in the United States played host on Saturday to the second largest ‘One Nation Coming Together' rally. Attendance at the event was buoyed by the well publicized presence of leftist actor Danny Glover and Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Covering the event for Firedoglake , David Dayen estimated the crowd which gathered at L.A. City College at around 1,500. Parking does not seem to have been a problem. Dayen reports that the "labor-heavy crowd" included representatives from the SEIU, AFSCME, UAW and numerous other unions. Also in attendance were representatives of Organizing for America, Alliance of Californians...

    Our countries Flag-on the ground, spray painted-treated like dirt. That is how these people feel about our country. Is this what Obama, the Democrats, Jerry Brown and Pelosi are defending and fighting for?

    Hobbes, Locke, and Cicero be damned. President Obama single handedly overturns Natural Law. Friday evening President Obama addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. At around 22:30, he incorporates part of the preamble of The Declaration of Independence, removing "Creator". "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal..... endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" After President Obama says "created equal...", there is a long pause during which he scowls and blinks several times. For once, he may actually have opted to not read something that was on the...

    Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express have roared right through the latest round of Republican Party primaries this week, rattling the party establishment and terrifying the Democrats. For those of you who are trained in the fastidious ways of the British ‘liberalism’ and are therefore shocked and can’t think why the American Right is gaining such strength, here’s the reason: Barack Obama. Americans are waking up to the fact that they have elected a man as president who is every inch an exotic creature. Which was rather fun at first. The problem is, America is discovering that Mr Obama...
