I was up at the apraisers office last week trying to get some traction with her on my idea of a revised apraisal timeline. I have and will continue to suggest, push, bully and otherwise proclaim that Kansas needs to change its yearly appraisal and go to a plan more similiar to Marylands. They do it every three years and impliment any increases over the follow on three years. less overhead, more ability for local governments to budget and the home owner is allowed to as well. she was more worried about new construction and improvments not being able to be taxed during that three years than the other benefits. just goes to show, greed goes on right here in MGCO. Im thinking she is gonna screw with me on my improvements to 1/2 of my barn roof. i guess it will be ANOTHER year to pay in protest...LOL I can see alot more than the trees, I have a global viewpoint but am focused on the near and present danger we face right here at home. those losing their homes are because of whats happening everywhere, not just here. sharia and foreign policy pay its part in our local reality to some extent. im doing my best to stay engaged at every level possible because there is a lot happening and a lot more people like me who are awakening from our previously deseased lives of APATHY. I will not go quietly into the night.....

Remedy what is wrong here in montgomery county first, then branch out to save the world. I have talked to several people who told me in no uncertain terms they are selling out and moving out of this county and state because of the high taxes. There is no justification for raising evaluations at this time in my opinion.

(CBS News) A U.S. official confirmed that a Monday drone strike in Pakistan killed al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi, the most serious blow to the battered terror network since the death of its leader Osama bin Laden.
Al-Libi's death, which came on the third consecutive day of CIA drone strikes in the Pakistani tribal areas bordering Afghanistan, is a serious knock to what remains of al Qaeda's Pakistan-based core leadership.
Relentless drone strikes have seriously thinned the senior ranks of the al Qaeda network. In the past two years more than a dozen top leaders have been killed by U.S. strikes in Pakistan and Yemen - among them bin Laden and U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

Personally I have to agree with Kat, at least in part, that we should give credit where credit is due and IMO there is no doubt that President Obama played a substantial roll in the killing of bin-Laden. Just as I suspect any sitting
Of course that being said there is something else we should give President Obama partial credit for in my opinion:
The Dr. who helped President Obama find and kill Osama bin Laden, was given a virtual death sentence from a Pakistan court that sentenced to 33 years in prison.
Dr. Shakil Afridi, ran a vaccination program for the CIA and collected DNA to verify bin Laden's presence in the Abbottabad compound where the terrorist leader was later killed by U.S. commandos.
The Pakistani court has shown their appreciation for ending the bin Laden threat by charging, trying and convicting Afridi of treason... Wheres the out rage?
Could it be in Washington, DC?
The United States has given wings to its righteous indignation by canceling $33 million dollars of aid to the Pakistani government one million dollars for every year of Dr. Afridis sentence.
Umm, but the annual aid Pakistan is receiving is somewhere around One Billion Dollars annually.
Now for the mathematically impaired, like me: 1 thousand, thousand is a million and 1 thousand million is a billion
So of the 1 thousand million dollars ($1 billion) we give to Pakistan every year, we wont be sending them 33 million of that amount this year.
I might be a mathematical lightweight, but even I can figure out; 33 million is mere chump change compared to a 1 billion dollars annual "aid" package.
Am I the only one that might think, this appears to be little more than a useless symbolic gesture?
President Obama got bin Laden: Team Obama says so in their endorsed campaign ads, President Obama himself has mentioned it in numerous TV interviews. His supporters appear to want to rub their political opponents noses in it and even Barack Obamas detractors have to admit, President Obama got bin Laden, something former President Bush had failed to do.
But heres a random thought
Since President Obama was such a major contributor for getting rid of bin Laden shouldnt also be considered a major contributor for virtually hanging Dr. Shakil Afridi, out to dry, with little to no consideration from us?
Another random thought
How do you suppose the next potential informant might feel about passing on their knowledge of a pending or likely threat to America or Americans?

The ultimate Coward: Obama blames everyone but himself
How many times has President Obama blamed his failures on headwinds? The U.S. economy, Chinas economy, the Middle East, the Japanese tsunami, President Bush, gas prices, soaring energy costs, the Republican Congress, the Arab spring the list goes on and on.
He has over-used the talking point so much it has become more of a running joke than a legitimate excuse. Using the term allows Obama to pass his failures off on things that are seemingly beyond his control, but when you are three and a half years into a four year term, it gets harder and harder to play the I blame everything but myself game unless of course, you are a coward, which it has become blaringly obvious this President is.
From, the I couldn't have said it better myself;
Obama is a narcissist to the core of his being; this shows daily with each speech and move he makes. His inability to accept accountability, responsibility or even reality is absolute. As the Nov elections come closer and closer, as his base flees for the hills, his ever collapsing world will eventually slam hard on the rocks of reality and will send him into one of two directions:
He will have a complete mental collapse and enter into a delusional state rendering him unable to carry forth the duties of the Presidency.
Or he will snap completely, becoming capable of any form of violence, destruction and able to justify to himself the unleashing of economic devastation (scorched earth), social chaos and the utilization of his terror, anarchist, radical extremist allies to exact vengence upon the people of the nation.
He is at the point of absolute dissolution of his mental faculties; and now we enter the most dangerous of times in concerns to him.
Anyone doubting for a moment just what kind of damage he can do instantly consider this:
What would happen if Obama went on a public, live broadcast and announced to the world that the nation of the United States has 'effectively immediatly will no longer honor our national debt.'
What would be the consequences?
Remember something else, the old sayiing of "Insane, does not mean stupid."

Umm, so it take it your post indicates President Obama violated the sanctity of a sovereign foreign nation, by conducting unsanctioned military operations in Yemen without that government's knowledge or consent, 40 more times that his predecessor?
Yeah, probably not.
Now consider some other nation, say Venezuela is out to get someone their secret assignation agency considers to be a terrorist for reasons known only to that secret agency and sends a drone or airstrike into the United States to get him without the knowledge or permission of this countries governing body... all in the name of protecting Venezuela from what it considers terrorist acts of course.
I wonder how the government and the people of the United States would react to such an act and how they would consider the Venezuelan government for carrying out an unsanctioned military attack on American soil?
Now, let's consider how the governments and people of the countries where the U.S. carries out those same kinds of unsanctioned military operations in their countries ~
Oh but it's different isn't it?
We're doing it to protect ourselves and "the world" from terrorists aren't we?
But then I ask you, what's the difference between some group setting off a suitcase bomb at a crowded airport, in an attempt to get their foe and protect themselves from someone they consider "terrorist" -vs- another group sending in a drone strike, targeting their "terrorist foe?
They both sound like terrorist acts to me... just with one using more high-tech methods of carring out their attacks.
The U.S. may presently have the corner on offensive capaible drone technology, but that won't always be the case... so what kind of presedent do you suppose our actions are setting for the rest of the world when their offensive drone technology catches up to where ours is today?
Kind of makes most people without tunnel vision wonder what kind of example we are setting those who might have their own remote killing machines, 10-15-20 years down the road huh?

God allows Satan to do his dirty work through anything, and weve seen it. Lies
are beyond all belief ..my face would be RED from telling so many lies, but not him.
That man gave us Change we couldnt believe in and Im waiting to find just one good change we can actually believe in theres NONE
Our economy is wrecked, gas is sky high, food is too expensive,(but then, a white house who can import $100 a pound steaks is shameful in this economy. And thats only a tip of the iceberg.) Peolosi stocking the bar on our airplane for $100,000 goes unnoticed.
Reid living in the Ritz Carlton (prob. paid for by his Nevada co-conspirators.), while Ryan sleeps in his office (and they have the nerve to make fun of him for being conservative.)
And pushing grandma over the cliff ..what a farce, Id be more concerned about Obamas Death Panel saying when grandma has to die without medication or medical care because shes too dam old to get anything else from this government. She outlived her usefullness.
Dont listen to the combative BUZZ words obama will use to smash good people. Hes a complete disaster and wants you to believe he did good no, no, no, he needs to be removed for his lies, deceits, manipulation of everything he did bad for this Country.
WE DESERVE BETTER THAN HIM. Romney & RYAN, truthful, good for America.

Dude, you are bat crap crazy. Turn off the Fox News / Glenn Beck propaganda machine. It's rotting your brain.
"The stock market has performed extremely well since Obama took office. The S&P 500 index is up 74% since Jan. 20, 2009. One has to go back to Dwight Eisenhower's first term (1953-1957) to find a President whose first term showed this much stock market growth. Most people are employed and many of them have investments or retirement accounts that have soared under Obama. They don't regard Obama's presidency as an economic failure at all."

I was trained long ago as part my job to detect when someone is lying. I used this experience for 30 years in my profession and became quite good at it. My experience when Obama speaks tells me he is misrepresenting the truth on most occations. He feels that by using his smile and well spoken manner that he can confuse the public.

Just for you ,THE HUMMER Wichita, KS
If it wasnt for the malpractice of the National Socialist Media (CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS) Obama would have been vetted in the public square and never would have been elected. Instead of vetting him they provided cover for him. Their news should be required to come with a disclaimer stating their political agenda.
Obama's Economic Model Is a Failure
By Larry Kudlow
You would think $1 trillion in spending stimulus and $2.5 trillion of Fed pump-priming would produce an economy a whole lot stronger than 1.9 percent gross domestic product, which was the revised first-quarter number. And you'd think all that government spending would deliver a whole lot more jobs than 69,000 in May.
But it hasn't happened.
The Keynesian government-spending model has proven a complete failure. It's the Obama model. And it has produced such an anemic recovery that, frankly, at 2 percent growth, we're back on the front end of a potential recession. If anything goes wrong -- like another blow-up in Europe -- there's no safety margin to stop a new recession.
And that brings us to the grim May employment report, which generated only 69,000 nonfarm payrolls. It's the third consecutive subpar tally, replete with downward revisions for the two prior months. It's a devastating number for the American economy and a catastrophic number for Obama's re-election hopes. All momentum on jobs and the economy has evaporated.
Inside the May report, the data is just as bad. The unemployment rate rose slightly from 8.1 to 8.2 percent. The so called U6 unemployment rate, tracking the marginally employed or completely discouraged, increased to 14.8 percent from 14.5 percent. And labor earnings are barely rising at 1.7 percent over the past year, almost in line with the inflation rate. In fact, through April, after-tax, after-inflation income is scarcely rising at 0.6 percent for the past year.
The private workweek also fell in May. So did the manufacturing workweek and aggregate hours worked for all employees. The small-business household survey did rise, but that follows declines in the prior two months.

The saying that sh** rolls down hill, well when something good happens the credit should go to the ones responsible who are the seals, if they feel that he deserves credit then they should say so. If he was a good commander in chief he would have made it clear his a** was not on the line and the credit goes to them I dont see him out in combat like you do the prince of england. How many times has obama taken crap for putting himself in harmsway, none!
