I fully understand how taxes work, where the bulk of the cost ends up...but still believe we Pennsylvania citizens are sitting on a massive gas stock and should definitely be taxing gas companies for taking our resource. Alaskans get massive rebates. Texans in some parts do too. We have more natural gas than Saudi Arabia has oil reserves. Come on citizens, this is a no brainer yet we're the only state not taxing them. Thanks governor shi+head

It's Not My Fault
May 30, 2014

Barack Obama accepted the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki this morning “with considerable regret.”

The president added that the scandalous treatment of veterans is “totally unacceptable,” and that he will take responsibility –“I always take responsibility for whatever happens” in this administration, he said.

Except that he blamed George W. Bush, saying the problem “predates my presidency.” As usual, the buck stops over there

Fact Check: Clinton’s Benghazi chapter has holes
May 31, 2014

Excerpts of Hillary Clinton's forthcoming memoir obtained by Politico conflict with the factual record about what happened during and after the 2012 Benghazi terror attack.
...
Specifically, she defended the flawed explanation -- used by then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice five days after the attack -- that an obscure anti-Islam video fueled a protest gone awry in Benghazi.
...
Further, she reportedly wrote that Rice relied on existing intelligence in making her statements.

But former CIA deputy director Mike Morell, who now works for Clinton's principal gatekeeper Philippe Reines at the D.C. consulting firm Beacon Global Strategies, testified in April that it was Rice who linked the video to the Benghazi attack.

Morrell, who still faces allegations he misled Congress over the so-called talking points, said the video was not part of the CIA analysis as Clinton seems to suggest.

Morell told members of the House Intelligence Committee that Rice’s claims about the attacks evolving from a protest were “exactly what the talking points said, and it was exactly what the intelligence community analysts believed.”

However, he said:“When she talked about the video, my reaction was, that's not something that the analysts have attributed this attack to."

An independent review of more than 4,000 social media postings, conducted by a leading social media monitoring firm in December 2012, also found the YouTube video was a non-event in Benghazi.

Racism in the Classroom

Walter E. Williams at TownHall:

White Privilege
May 28, 2014
...
The average parent has no idea of the devious indoctrination going on in classrooms in many public schools. What follows are some of the lessons of the conference.

In one of the workshops, "Examining White Privilege and Building Foundations for Social Justice Thinking in the Elementary Classroom," educators Rosemary Colt and Diana Reeves told how teachers can "insert social justice, anti-racist information" into their lessons that "even little kids" can understand.

Kim Radersma, a former high-school English teacher, hosted a session titled "Stories from the front lines of education: Confessions of a white, high school English teacher."

She said that teaching is a purely political act and that neutral people should "get the f--- out of education."

She also explained: "Being a white person who does anti-racist work is like being an alcoholic. I will never be recovered by my alcoholism, to use the metaphor. I have to every day wake up and acknowledge that I am so deeply embedded with racist thoughts and notions and actions in my body that I have to choose every day to do anti-racist work and think in an anti-racist way."

But the propaganda and lunacy go even deeper....

Terror suspects freed by Obama admin. were labeled ‘high risk’ in 2008: report
May 31, 2014

All five terror suspects the Obama administration exchanged for the release of Sgt. Bowe Berghdahl on Saturday were deemed in a 2008 Pentagon dossier to be ‘high risk’ for launching attacks on American interests if released.
...
“They are undoubtedly among the most dangerous Taliban commanders held at Guantanamo,” said Thomas Joscelyn, a senior editor at the non-profit Long War Journal.

Taliban Gloats Over Jihad Victory
06/01/2014

Taliban leaders claimed a jihadi victory following President Barack Obama’s decision to release five of their top leaders held at Guantanamo Bay, in exchange for one U.S soldier who walked off his base in 2009.

The five leaders were “released due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate,” which is formal name of the Taliban’s movement, said the June 1 statement.

Obama described the trade as a “recovery” of the U.S. soldier.

But the Taliban’s press release described it as a trade.

6 soldiers killed searching for ‘deserter’ POW, fueling backlash
June 2, 2014

Six soldiers died in the frantic search for Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal immediately after his mysterious disappearance five years ago, fueling the increasing backlash over the POW’s recovery.

Former platoon mates of the now-recovered serviceman accused Bergdhal of deserting his post and blamed him for the unnecessary deaths of comrades.

“I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on,” former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon, told CNN.

“Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.”
