Barack Obama, our next President

Good morning everyone.

Have the rise of the oceans begun to slow and our planet begun to heal yet?

Just wondering.

After the Crack-Up

Conservatives need to support their arguments with creative storytelling.

It’s been weeks since our “surprise” loss on November 6. The conservative crack-up began in real time, as we watched Karl Rove,à la Captain Queeg, insist that his employer, Fox News, was calling Ohio, and the election, for President Obama prematurely.

Then came the fingerpointing, and the conjecture. Our pundits covered every scenario. We were too conservative. We weren’t conservative enough. The social issues killed us. We didn’t hit the social issues hard enough. We had a candidate problem. A woman problem. A Hispanic problem. It will continue for months, this self-abuse masquerading as self-examination. And liberals will eat it up, watching us wallow in self-doubt.

But if there is one thing conservatives can agree on post-election, it’s this: The dominance of the Left in the storytelling arena is making a difference at the polls. It’s impossible to measure, but anyone who doesn’t think it skews outcomes is living in an alternate universe.

The fact is, it’s easier to sell a political narrative to America when it comports with the cultural narrative we see and hear every day.

For a start, shut down FOX since it's political narrative has very little to do with present day culture.

Michael Dunn, a 45-year-old Florida resident is invoking the controversial law after a recent confrontation turned fatal, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
According to authorities, 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis, a black teenager, and several other friends were confronted by Dunn, a white man, who pulled alongside the teens' SUV in the parking lot of a Jacksonville, Fla., gas station. Dunn asked them to turn their music down, and after an exchange of words, he fired between 8 and 9 shots at the vehicle, several of which hit Davis, causing his death.
(This looks like Dunn was the instigator)
See this!!! No mention what so ever that the innocent little black child pointed a sawed off shotgun at the man first. Libtards make me want to puke.

My point is that the so-called "Palestinians" do not have an Arabic word with which to identify themselves.
If they did it would be Jordanian, Egyptian and/or Syrian.

A 14-year-old girl charged with killing her newborn baby will be tried as an adult in court.
Cassidy Goodson was indicted by a grand jury on Thursday, according to the Lakeland Ledger.
Authorities say that on September 19, Goodson gave birth to her son in a Lakeland, Fla. bathroom, then strangled the baby. When asked why she killed her child, Goodson allegedly told authorities she "didn't know what to do with it." She had reportedly tried to hide her pregnancy using baggy clothes.
(14 is not an adult, she is a child)
If she is old enough to have sex and kill her baby she is an adult. Libtards are so stupid!!!

Prior to 1948 the Arab world had absolutely no interest in creating a Palestinian state. And in all actuality kicked those poor people around like mangey dogs.

I'm fairly BURSTING with it. It's almost palpable for you, huh? You should be happy: The god you've fashioned in your crippled imagination is finally REALLY having a dialogue with you. NOW YOU WANT IT TO STOP???
You KNOW me?

You got it all figured out?

Pegged my "religion"?


Everything I hear from you guys is more bloodthirsty than 17th century PIRATES!

Can't win an argument so you call names, then threaten violence, then steal the name and post bullshit!

Mostly threaten violence against the "tea" people

(I like COFFIE!)I would not go within 10 miles of a fukin "tea party"!

So these old white people you are all so frightened of, you want to kill them?

Will THAT solve the "problem"?

History shows otherwise.

There will just be another group(jews?) right behind THEM!

Waiting for the venomous hate you feel for yourselves to spill out on them.

This why we voted for Obamma?

The purpose of the treaty is not to alter what is being done in the US but rather get other countries on board with what we do.
We have a legal principle that says no treaty can override the Constitution or U.S. laws.
Carol, you are being duped by those using these UN treaties, whether this one or the arms one, to fire up the uninformed right.
Before you run screaming through the streets, read up on treaties & our laws. From reliable sources not your Beckian sources that you usually read.
There must be some reason why other countries oppose certain parts of it and 9000 parents of disabled children in the U.S. are against it.

Might be the part implying bureaucrats will decide "what's in the best interest of the child" under the new law.

Again, once we open the door to the UN making laws that already exist in our own country and in other countries - no matter how innocent it seems on the surface - we risk opening the door even wider to forfeiting sovreignty.

Tell me one thing the UN has done that makes them a credible entity.

When it comes to the UN, think of wolves in sheep's clothing.

Mediocre House Committee Chairmen Selected

Republicans in Washington are looking for ways to change the face of the party following their defeat in the presidential election. However, one thing that will not change is the face of GOP leaders in the House.

Last week, John Boehner stacked the Steering Committee, which is responsible for selecting committee assignments, with like-minded stooges. He also gave himself 5 votes. Not surprisingly, there aren’t too many changes from the array of weak committee chairmen. Dave Camp is still at Ways and Means; Fred Upton is still at Energy & Commerce; Hal Rogers is still chairing Appropriations. The only positive change for conservatives is that Jeb Hensarling will be replacing Spencer Bauchus at Financial Services.

Here are the 2011 ratings for the proposed roster of chairmen. None of the important economic policy committees are chaired by conservatives. Republicans might wish to change the party platform, but it is the face of leadership that needs to change....

I’m Not Sure What Republicans Stand For in Congress

Erick Erickson

In Congress, there used to be clear and distinct Republican and Democrat positions. But in the past decade, about the only thing separating the GOP from the Democrats is the rate of spending. Republicans spend less, but they still spend a lot. Oh, and they love babies in utero.

Republicans used to believe in free enterprise, the private sector, and low taxes. They believed in getting government the heck out of the way. They still talk like that, but they don’t seem to actually be operating like that. Senate and House Republicans seem to be in a bidding war to increase revenue in Washington. What’s worse, they are mendacious enough to call it “increasing revenue” instead of “tax increases,” when it amounts to the same thing. The Republican Party of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have taken a party that once believed in starving the beast and transforming it into a party that believes in feeding the leviathan lest the leviathan consume them. They operate out of fear — fear of losing their remaining power, fear of blame, and fear of the unknown.
