    Muslims and Democrats and Republicans I believe that the Muslim community is responsible to withhold support of the most radical members of their religion. I believe that the Liberal community is responsible to withhold support of the most progressive Democrats. I believe the Conservative community is responsible to withhold support of the more corrupted Republicans. The Tea Party Movement accepted Conservative responsibility by withholding their support of corrupted Republicans and taking steps to replace corrupted Republicans. Why can’t Liberals take action to remove corrupted Democrats? Perhaps they support the corruption. Why can’t Muslims take action to remove radical Muslims? Perhaps...
  • Why JFK could not be a Democrat in todays Democratic Party.

    I’m tired of hearing the nonsense that the Republican Party has been taking over by the far right, and that the Democratic Party is the “moderate” party. It is simply not true. The Democratic Party is the party that has changed, not Conservatives. God, Liberty, defense spending, and patriotism is all in JFK's inauguration speech. Today's Democrats don't talk this way. My point is I miss moderate Democrats. --------- And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe-the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the...

    OSLO (Reuters) - The baseline for "normal" weather used by everyone from farmers to governments to plan ahead needs to be updated more frequently to account for the big shifts caused by global warming, the U.N.'s World Meteorological Organization said on Wednesday. The WMO's Commission for Climatology believes rising temperatures and more heatwaves and heavy rains mean the existing baseline, based on the climate averages of 1961-90, is out of date as a guide, the WMO said in a statement. "For water resources, agriculture and energy, the old averages no longer reflect the current realities," Omar Baddour, head of the...

    States are now releasing their preliminary 2015 Obamacare premiums, which means price hikes could become another negative talking point right before the midterm elections. The difference between now and previous moments of bad health care PR is that Democrats insist they're getting ahead of it this time. But even then, there are a number of other issues coming up: the left's increasing aversion to the employer mandate, questions about how young and healthy this year's enrollees are and, as always, whether the Affordable Care Act is actually affordable. As Politico noted Monday, the White House's "internal health care enrollment outreach...
