Barack Obama, our next President

You see, carol, it's like a rapist or a murderer who's still in jail 20 years after the crime - maybe forever. If you can prove he did it, then he's accountable for it.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—(ooopsie)

Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll has resigned amid fallout from an investigation into internet cafes that are fronts for gambling.

Carroll's resignation was announced Wednesday, one day after she gave her resignation letter to Gov. Rick Scott. His chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworrth, said her resignation was spurred by an investigation into the Allied Veterans of the World.

Officials from that non-profit internet cafe company were recently arrested on racketeering charges. The owner was arrested Tuesday in connection to allegations that he made $290 million after supplying illegal gambling software in Florida and claiming the games' proceeds would benefit a veterans group. Authorities also interviewed Carroll.

Carroll's ties to the company were questioned when she was in the Legislature when she proposed a bill that would benefit Internet cafes.

The Socialist Party (AKA Democrats) do not discriminate.

They are willing to destroy the well being of the elderly as well as lower the living standard for all hard working Americans in order to achieve their lunatic left-win agendas and power grabs.

Whoever he is! You know everyone don't you? I see he took a cute little photo of it with a red ribbon and all, in his photo he appears to be in his 20's?

Anyway, this was from that same paper, which is "welcome to a world without the EPA regulations that these people seem to want":

BEIJING (AP)— Authorities recovered hundreds more dead pigs from a river that provides drinking water to Shanghai, China's financial hub, bringing the total to more than 6,600 since last Friday.

Pictures of swollen and rotting carcasses in the Huangpu river have worried many residents, but officials say the water supply remains safe.

The surge in dumping of dead pigs — believed to be from swine farms in the upstream Jiaxing area of neighboring Zhejiang province — has followed police campaigns against the sale of pork products made from diseased pigs.

On Wednesday, a Zhejiang court sentenced 46 people to jail for producing unsafe pork from sick pigs that they had acquired and slaughtered between 2010 and 2012.

The official Xinhua News Agency said police in the city of Wenling had seized 6,218 kilograms (13,708 pounds) of diseased pork.

Then you compare this virtual sludge to the quicksilver observational satire of Debil, and you finally understand the full implications of casting south sea pearls before the dead (not swine, who are, after all, much more intelligent than the bulk of what ruminates in here, but are unlucky in that they taste good and have no voting privileges).
Not sure what all that means but pretty sure there was an insult somewhere in there.

Preserving personal freedoms, personal choices and personal liberties is not just a Christian concept.

If you think an overbloated government who can't even manage or keep up with the abuses in the entitlement programs now, just wait until Obamacare hits the fan.

You haven't seen poor yet...

This is going to backfire on the same people Obama and you seemingly think bigger government can save.

You wouldn't know fair if it bit you.

The Democrats were right behind Bush voting for both wars and funding both wars until it became political expedient to become weasels.

It was the Democrats who insisted on broadening the mortgage loans to those who were not qualified.

Former President Bill Clinton bombed Iraq even before Bush did and declared his regime had to be taken down and replaced with a democrat-type of government in the Iraq Liberation Act of 1988 - of which every single Democrat was on board.

So when it comes to being fair, you're anything but.

not burning down your neighborhood when you are angry is also too white. get a load of this "new world order." gated communities all--here America comes. Looney Lily is one step ahead in that regard.

GATED COMMUNITY: Shops that would normally be open are shuttered, their anti-crime gates pulled down, as merchants along Church Avenue were taking no chances yesterday.

A normally bustling stretch of East Flatbush was a ghost town yesterday, as merchants refused to open their businesses in fear of a fresh round of looting and rioting over the fatal police shooting of a local teenager.

Merchants were willing to lose a day’s receipts rather than have their stores trashed and robbed by supporters of Kimani Gray, 16, a Bloods gang member whom cops shot Saturday night after he allegedly pulled a revolver from his waistband.

does anyone think the thug's gun was "registered" or that he would comply with some loon politicians proposed "anger management seminar" requirements?

Despite Talk of Cuts, Members of Congress Push More Spending

Like many House Republicans, Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho supports “drastically reducing discretionary spending” and warns that further growth in national debt could be “disastrous for the economy.” But as chairman of a powerful appropriations subcommittee in the House, Simpson takes a different tack, especially when it comes to programs that impact his home district.

“Simpson Secures Wildfire Funding in House Budget Bill,” his office announced last week in a press release, trumpeting Simpson’s “instrumental” role in adding $570 million in additional funds for wildfire suppression in a bill that passed the House Wednesday. Idaho has been particularly hard hit by recent fires, and the National Interagency Fire Center is located on the edge of his congressional district.“Idaho and the West faced an intense fire season in 2013,” Simpson said in the release,“requiring more funding than initially budgeted to protect communities and manage resources.”

Simpson is by no means an exception. Even in this new age of austerity, sequestration and budget cutting rhetoric, powerful members of Congress are having their way, defending favorite programs and finding money for pet projects. Key committee assignments can still mean millions for constituents back home.“In this earmark moratorium era, it’s less about stuffing in your pork projects than protecting your special interests back home,” explains Steve Ellis, the vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a group that seeks to identify wasteful spending.

Consider the Speaker John Boehner, who has been publicly leading the charge for less federal outlays.“Spending is the problem here in Washington,” he likes to say. But he joined a bipartisan group of Senators and Congressman in 2011 to push for $181 million in funding the Army does not want for an upgrade program at the Abrams tank manufacturing plant in Lima, Ohio, just a few dozen miles from Boehner’s own Ohio Congressional district. The Army has already announced that it plans to phase out the cold-war era tank, and had sought to wind down production in Lima. Last May, the Obama Administration, citing a “fiscally constrained environment,” formally objected to the new funding. In a letter to the former Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, last year, more than 100 members of Congress, argued that “a modest and continued Abrams production for the Army is necessary to preserve the industrial base.”

Ryan's budget is vague compared to the non-existent budget submitted by the democrats.
Ryan said repeatedly last night he's just happy they finally submitted something. At least there's something to go on now instead of rejecting all the budgets submitted by the GOP and blaming them.

Don't think that trillion dollars in increased taxes is going to go over too well though.

But instead of sitting down to discuss how to save Medicare and Social Security, the liberal attack machine already has another ad out, the sequel to Ryan pushing Granny over the cliff.

That's productive.
