"Two months after the sequester hit, the Department of Interior continues to warn of coast-to-coast cuts for the country's national parks -- and even the partial shut-down of a critical flood warning system.
But Sen. Tom Coburn says there's "no shortage of potential savings," pointing out that the department is nevertheless spending millions on newly created monuments and landmarks."

Obama has a sweet retirement package. Will you?
No one says the President doesn't deserve his benefits. But it's hard to get past his plan to limit savers to half the value of what he'll walk away with.President Obama's proposal to limit the value of 401(k)s, pensions, and other tax-favored retirement accounts to about $3.4 million certainly sounds reasonable. After all, at a time of big budget deficits, we shouldn't subsidize "the rich" with tax breaks, should we?

But when you look a little closer -- especially when you look at the value of President Obama's taxpayer-funded retirement benefits -- you might think a little differently about what "rich" means. For starters, the point at which Obama wants to eliminate your ability to deduct retirement account contributions isn't actually the $3.4 million in his budget proposal -- that's just an estimate. The real number is how much a couple age 62 would have to pay for an annuity that yields $205,000 a year. That $3.4 million -- which applies to the combined values of your pension and retirement accounts -- is subject to a sharp downward change in the future because annuity issuers charge significantly less for an annuity when interest rates are higher than they do today, with rates at rock-bottom levels.

Funny to see a diabetic, overweight smoker speak of others not having common sense!!
Do you ever reflect on your own disasterous lifestyle??
Where;s your common sense?? You must know the dangers of smoking are far greater for diabetics.
Want me to post the facts on what you're doing to yourself??
Ready for the amputations??
Funnier than hell to see you talk of common sense, while you have none.
I wouldn't wish hereditary diabetes on anyone just like I wouldn't wish any kind of hereditary chronic disease on anyone.

But, in your case, being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes would almost be poetic justice. Have you checked into your family history recently? Might be a good idea.

I've told you repeatedly, I am not overweight.

But let me ask you again. Do you eat ONLY healthy foods, avoid ALL caffeinated beverages and sodas and NEVER eat any sweets or fatty foods?

If so, you are the model of health for us all and can criticize others. If not, shut the hell up.

House Republicans passed several budgets and reform bills. Harry Reid didn't allow them to come up for a vote in the Senate.
Meanwhile, the Senate didn't even propose a budget for three years and unanimously rejected Obama's spending-laden budget.
Any bill voted down by Republicans was peppered with a taxation agenda the democrats tried to sneak in or there was a catch that wasn't in the best interest of the country.
You have to look beyond what seems like a good bill on the surface and read the fine print. I had to look into it myself but then it became clear why these bills didn't pass.
Each one of those bills either repealed part or all of Obamacare & reduced access to abortion.

We certainly know Republicans hate paying for things. As you said, Republicans voted no because they valued a pledge to lobbyist over the good of our country.

Three civil rights commissioners say immigration reform bill would hurt African-Americans
Three members of the U.S. Commission of Civil Rights say that a Senate bipartisan proposal to give some 11 million illegal immigrants legal status would disproportionately hurt African-Americans.

Abigail Thernstrom is one of three members of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission concerned about immigration bill's impact on African-Americans.

The letter, from two Republicans and one independent on the eight-member commission, was initially sent to members of the Congressional Black Caucus. On Tuesday, it was also sent to Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.

"We are writing to address a rarely discussed effect of granting legal status or effective amnesty to illegal immigrants," the three commissioners say in their letter. "Such grant of legal status will likely disproportionately harm lower-skilled African-Americans by making it more difficult for them to obtain employment and depressing their wages when they do obtain employment.

The letter was signed by Commission Vice Chair Abigail Thernstrom and Commissioners Peter Kirsanow and Gail Heriot. Thernstrom and Kirsanow are Republicans, while Heriot is an independent.

The three commissioners mention a 2008 briefing on illegal immigration that brought together what they said was a diverse group of scholars to the commission. There was a general consensus, the commissioners said, that African-Americans suffer economic losses from competition with immigrants.

"Illegal immigration to the United States in recent decades has tended to depress both wages and employment rates for low-skilled American citizens, a disproportionate number of whom are black men," the three commissioners said in their letter. "Expert economic opinions concerning the negative effects range from modest to significant. Those panelists that found modest effects overall nonetheless found significant effects in industry sectors such as meatpacking and construction."

Landrieu had no immediate comment on the letter. Previously, she said, that immigration reform is "urgently needed for the economic strength and security of our country. But she also said the Department of Homeland Security needs more money allocated to prevent illegal immigration.

DO BLACK DEMOCRATS HAVE A PROBLEM WITH FREE SPEECH OF BLACK PEOPLE Rev. Johnson disinvited at Morehouse College
Rev. Kevin R. Johnson An invitation to the Rev. Kevin R. Johnson, senior pastor of Bright Hope Baptist Church, to be the baccalaureate speaker May 18 at his alma mater, Morehouse College, has been rescinded.

Johnson was informed of the decision by Morehouse College President John Silvanus Wilson Jr. in an April 15 phone call from Atlanta.

According to a press release from Citizens for Change — a group of prominent Morehouse graduates — Wilson’s decision was based on concerns Johnson expressed in an op-ed article that appeared in The Tribune on April 14. In the commentary, Johnson voiced displeasure about President Barack Obama’s lack of Black appointees in his cabinet.

The release said Wilson felt the article was “untimely” given that Obama is scheduled to be the 2013 commencement speaker on May 19.

Reached Saturday via e-mail, Johnson said,“What has made Morehouse such a premier institution is its commitment to critical thinking, free thought, and free speech. Morehouse teaches her students not to accept the status quo, but to ask the critical ‘why’ and then do something about it, just as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Maynard Jackson, Julian Bond, and others did, to uplift African-American people.In the release, Johnson said,“I have always been and continue to be a supporter of President Obama. The issue is not about the article in question, but about Morehouse’s longstanding history and pedagogy of free thought and free speech. Without free thought and free speech, Morehouse would not have produced our most admired alumnus, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”

Several noted Morehouse College almuni are members of Citizens for Change.

“Kevin is not just a Morehouse man,” said the Rev. Calvin Butts, senior pastor of The Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, president of SUNY Old Westbury, and a member of the group. In the release Butts said,“he is a stellar example of the college’s rich tradition of producing outstanding leaders in this century who are well-educated, forward-thinking, community-conscious, and global citizens.”

The alumni group wants Wilson to reaffirm and honor his invitation to Johnson.

“If President Wilson turns his back on one of our most distinguished alums because of an exercise of free speech and political commentary, he will have set Morehouse on a dangerous course and departed from the great tradition bequeathed to us,” said the Rev. Dr. Amos Brown, senior pastor of Third Baptist Church in San Francisco in the release.“In 1947, Dr. King warned that,‘If we are not careful, our colleges will produce a group of close-minded, unscientific, illogical propagandists, consumed with immoral acts. Be careful,‘brethren!’ Be careful, teachers!’ We are potentially witnessing the realization of King’s greatest fears.”

Wilson was unavailable for comment.
