Typical of the extremist Tea party. Once again calling for the shutdown of the government. Apparently they need more time to adjust their thinking caps. Having problems keeping up with the flow of rational intelligent politics.
This time their stamping their feet and throwing their tantrums, because they want to impeach the president and demand our nation goes back to the old status quo of medical care. Yes backwards back to the monopolized medical insurance plans of yesteryear, with their death panels and all the other erroneous failures that system provided for our USA. Raising the cost of medical health care to the highest in the world !
Eric Cantor proudly leading this dysfunctional mob of Tea baggers. Leading them down into chasm that they have been expanding within the republican party. Traditional intelligent political republicans are experiencing ever increasing disdain for their follow republican extremist, lacking knowledge of politics.
Traditional republicans find it difficult to support their extremist in the midst of booming fiscal recovery of Obama’s making. They explain that voters are even more savvy than when they were during Clinton’s administration and know it is the republicans erroneous policy to continuously threaten the credit ratings of the USA. Little wonder for that will increase payments with increase interest rates. Our 1% would lavish that windfall profit for their coffers. Just as they did in the two previous shutdowns of our government by dysfunctional leadership of the republicans.
The pirate captain Eric Cantor goes below decks to plot their attack upon the financial’s of the USA. Seeking to pirate away more ransom loot and additional interest booty for their 1% lords and masters.
Here is what was over heard, of the Tea party pirates, diabolical plotting.
Basic simple strategy, pirates will be demand to reduce entitlements and increase funds to the military industrialist. No insurance for the impoverished, the weak, the frail. Suppress the present elderly’s insurance benefits, with greater co-pays on all medical issues. All with the delighted approval of their lords and masters of the 1%.
Traditional savvy republicans are appalled at the complete ignorance of their Tea party. They will seek to follow a strategy that has proven effective to deal with these hooligans of their political party. Old reliable smoke and mirrors as they circumnavigate around the issues that promotes any hostage issues.
Andy Roth the vice president of an organization of the republican traditional republicans will be seeking to support of the gathering up of the Tea and casting it out unto the waters of political oblivion. President of the organization, Chris Chocola,, concurs with Andy stating, he hopes these Tea Nuts are simply proposing an ill joke and not to be taken seriously.
Meanwhile back on the Tea’s plantation vigorous displays, parades. prep rallies were being rehearsed for their attack on the USA’s finical security. All for the glory and might of their 1% lords and masters.
Will the voters once again rise to the voting booths as they did in 2012 and dispose of this Tea blight upon our political leadership? Will the lords of the 1% win, with propaganda and sway the weak of mental stability to vote for their cause? Arrrr Matey the plot thickens. Heave ho, to the voting booths of 2014.… Cast out the Tea as in was with our forefathers of 1773.
Rational Intelligence is constrained to facts of reality, where in as irrational intelligence is infinitely bottomless.

Obama’s sword rattling pays off. His speech is as follows;
Good evening --
I just addressed the nation about the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Over the past two years, what began as a series of peaceful protests against the repressive regime of Bashar al-Assad has turned into a brutal civil war in Syria. Over 100,000 people have been killed.
In that time, we have worked with friends and allies to provide humanitarian support for the Syrian people, to help the moderate opposition within Syria, and to shape a political settlement. But we have resisted calls for military action because we cannot resolve someone else's civil war through force.
The situation profoundly changed in the early hours of August 21, when more than 1,000 Syrians -- including hundreds of children -- were killed by chemical weapons launched by the Assad government.
What happened to those people -- to those children -- is not only a violation of international law -- it's also a danger to our security. Here's why:
If we fail to act, the Assad regime will see no reason to stop using chemical weapons. As the ban against these deadly weapons erodes, other tyrants and authoritarian regimes will have no reason to think twice about acquiring poison gases and using them. Over time, our troops could face the prospect of chemical warfare on the battlefield. It could be easier for terrorist organizations to obtain these weapons and use them to attack civilians. If fighting spills beyond Syria's borders, these weapons could threaten our allies in the region.
So after careful deliberation, I determined that it is in the national security interests of the United States to respond to the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons through a targeted military strike. The purpose of this strike would be to deter Assad from using chemical weapons, to degrade his regime's ability to use them, and make clear to the world that we will not tolerate their use.
Though I possess the authority to order these strikes, in the absence of a direct threat to our security I believe that Congress should consider my decision to act. Our democracy is stronger when the President acts with the support of Congress -- and when Americans stand together as one people.
Over the last few days, as this debate unfolds, we've already begun to see signs that the credible threat of U.S. military action may produce a diplomatic breakthrough. The Russian government has indicated a willingness to join with the international community in pushing Assad to give up his chemical weapons and the Assad regime has now admitted that it has these weapons, and even said they'd join the Chemical Weapons Convention, which prohibits their use.
It's too early to tell whether this offer will succeed, and any agreement must verify that the Assad regime keeps its commitments. But this initiative has the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons without the use of force.
That's why I've asked the leaders of Congress to postpone a vote to authorize the use of force while we pursue this diplomatic path. I'm sending Secretary of State John Kerry to meet his Russian counterpart on Thursday, and I will continue my own discussions with President Putin. At the same time, we'll work with two of our closest allies -- France and the United Kingdom -- to put forward a resolution at the U.N. Security Council requiring Assad to give up his chemical weapons, and to ultimately destroy them under international control.

Obama’s speech continued.
Meanwhile, I've ordered our military to maintain their current posture to keep the pressure on Assad, and to be in a position to respond if diplomacy fails. And tonight, I give thanks again to our military and their families for their incredible strength and sacrifices.
As we continue this debate -- in Washington, and across the country -- I need your help to make sure that everyone understands the factors at play.
Please share this message with others to make sure they know where I stand, and how they can stay up to date on this situation. Anyone can find the latest information about the situation in Syria, including video of tonight's address, here:

Thank you,

LOL imagine had we had a republican in office? Invade, bomb, bomb….
Obama overrides the republicans constant naying and brings Nations together to dispel Chemical warfare. Huge difference in leadership from the emotional republican scenarios. Obama’s tactics is referred to as intelligent leadership.

Medical Health cost is but one example of a growing problem within the USA. What sustains this abnormality in having highest cost to health, education and security in the industrial developed world can be traced back to the increasing financial inequity through the years of republican austerity polices. Presently we are at the levels of Iran and Turkey.

A vast arena circles Washington’s politics with an atmosphere of carnival energies and a smorgasbord of various agendas, proposals, desires and opportunities. Clowns to intercept and distract the populace from the serious issues of their days. Producing nonexistent scandals or plot to undermine each other, all for the amusement of the audience. Confronting The Price Of Inequality within their lives is not to be mentioned. Distract, evade and deceive the audiences, that all is just fine, with the world, sit back and enjoy.
President Obama can be heard in the distance slightly above the din of noisy distractions. Crying out to the adults within these audiences to take care. Warning of pending storms a coming, to rain on the Foxy Pied Pipers parades.
Rolling rumbling thundering reality of globalization, arc’s of lightning technological change and in this confusion the audience’s adult pockets are being picked to satisfy the desires, of a few, of the corrupted villains, lurking in the shadows.
Foreboding words are warning of this Washington carnival. Obama declares; “Washington has taken its eyes of the ball” further addressing the audience “and I am here to say this needs to stop”!
Once upon a time “America The Land Of Opportunity” rang through out the world has been replaced with the “Myth Of America”! Education constantly eroding under the various republican storms leaving in its aftermath stifling heated humid fungus infecting “Inequality” Over a century of constant erosion has delivered US to the edge of desolation row, the worlds darken back alleys, where pickpocketer’s refine their trade. Paying their protective masters a large portion of their illicit gains, with no returns to the victims other than to have lightened their load of wealth from them.
Once again the ring master calls out the Foxy Pied Piper to lead the parade under these gathering stormy clouds. Festival enticingly the audience to forget all about your cares and woes. Who wants to build roads, power grids, schools, health centers, retirement packages, universal education for the children, and so on and so on. These are so boringly of reality. Now listen to the enchanting melodies of the Foxy Pied Pipers tune’s of A La Propaganda. Everything is all right just sit back and relax.
Master of ceremonies proudly shouts we will decrease your sovereignties laws, shackling you from enjoying our carnivals. Why pay them when you can spend here and enjoy? Come one come all. The show is about to begin. Today’s show will be the “Magic of Aristocratic Benefits” across the fairway we have the sacred hall of Kings, Emperors and their puppet show of their dictators waltz.
Price you may ask? Fear not put on credit and we will collect it at a later time with a slight interest charge of 400%. Out of work? Don’t worry we can surely come to some arrangements for your desolation. Come work for us. We have accommodations for your picking down on desolation row. Where the ever increasing populace whistles their tunes of “ Lord don’t call me, for I owe my soul to the company store”!





thanks be to Bern

BP Funds on the Horizon: But Who's Minding the Mint for Florida?
Published Saturday, September 14, 2013 12:10 am
by John Rehill
BP Funds are coming to a town near you; that is if you live on the Gulf coast from Texas to Florida and have filed for damages from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill catastrophe. But Florida has its own ideas of how to best distribute the loot and taxpayer's better be on guard to ensure that the cash isn't carried in a leaky bucket.
On May 13, 2013, Governor Scott signed Senate Bill 7007, an Economic Affairs Bill, said to bring some accountability to Florida's Department of Economic Opportunity and Enterprise Florida (EFI). SB 7007 proposes that the DEO analyze each economic development incentive application and publish specified information concerning the state's investments in economic development programs. But it also created Triumph Gulf Coast, Inc.(TGCI), a murky, non-profit corporation that is fighting hard to oversee much of the $5 billion from the state's share of the BP oil spill settlement.
Soon after the governor's election, he gutted the Department of Consumer Affairs (the oversight committee that EFI reported to) and designated many of its responsibilities to DEO. The DEO has proved to be little more than a rubber stamp for almost all of the contracts EFI has brought before them.
TGCI's purpose is to receive, hold and administer any state penalties against BP, and Restore Act funds, resulting from a settlement from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Disaster oil spill.
TGCI would be headed by a non-elected five-member board of directors. It is a separate budget entity and is not subject to control, supervision or direction by the DEO in any manner, including, but not limited to, personal, purchasing, transactions involving real or personal property and budgetary issues.
It seems Governor Scott ignored an April 23 letter from U.S. Florida Senator Bill Nelson (D), asking Scott to forget about redirecting any BP funds -- Nelson wrote:
“As a co­author of the RESTORE Act I can tell you it was the intent of Congress to send these fines directly to the places along the Gulf of Mexico where they’re needed most. If this were to pass through the state Legislature and land on your desk, I’d expect you to veto it if it runs contrary to the intentions of federal law.”
Scott signed SB 7007 three weeks later, creating TCGI and the Recovery Fund that plans to manage BP settlement funds for a period of 30 years.
The eight counties said to be disproportionately impacted are: Escambia, Okaloosa, Bay, Walton, Santa Rosa, Franklin, Gulf and Wakulla,­were selected to receive millions of dollars in BP fines under the federal RESTORE Act.
The Tampa Bay Business Journal reported, that, State Senate President Don Gaetz, who helped craft SB 7007, says not to worry, that the eight disproportionately affected northwest Florida counties won't lose anything, that they will still receive the agreed 75/25 split on the settlement (25% going to the rest of the counties effected by the BP spill), but that the separate fund would guarantee future investments.
In the same report, State House Representative, Matt Gaetz (Don Gaetz's son), who also supports TCGI and the Recovery Fund, says, "Dollars put in an endowment is spending for future generations," adding, "We can eat the golden goose for dinner or let it lay eggs for generations."

(continued)

The Tallahassee consort appointing the TGCI board of directors are Governor Scott, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, State Senate President, Don Gaetz, and Florida House of Representative speaker Will Weatherford.

The five recently-appointed board members include former House Speaker Allen Bense, chairman of TGCI. Weatherford once worked for Bense and is now married to his daughter.

Bense once sat as vice-chairman on the Enterprise Florida Inc. Board of Directors, along with Governor Rick Scott (EFI's Chairman), and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

If TCGI members duplicate the more hype than performance Modus Operandi of EFI, insult to injury may be all many of those traumatized by the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe will receive.

While Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi awaits a decision from the courts on which way the money will go, Senator Nelson, Franklin County residents and a growing number of other state officials are working to insure the Restore Act funds will be distributed as the federal act dictates, not left to the discretion of the State of Florida.

It is not over until it's over, and those in need the most, are the ones who lost everything -- three years ago, when their life on the Gulf fell flat on its face. It's their lives which were intended to be restored and Scott and company ought to ensure that's the case.

Obama’s ideology on military involvement has demonstrated respect for the G.I. Joe’s of America. Obama in his first year in office quickly realized a relationship with the civilian policy makers at the Pentagon, were too eager to escalate military action in Afghanistan. Obama decided to handpick leadership that he could trust. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and for his chairman of the Joint Chief’s of Staff Gen. Martin E. Dempsey.
Both with experience as soldiers. Respecting the seriousness of active personnel in a military campaign. Led by Secretary of Sate John Kerry they have endorsed the use of the Pentagon to be more restricted. Officially stated; “the military instrument is not going to be the dominant instrument of our policy, particularly in an instance like Syria, where we are not looking at military force to solve the underlying civil war.”
Mr. Hagel and Gen. Dempsey agree with the limited action on Syria as proposed by Obama.
Undercurrents of the previous warring ideology for active military action comes to surface occasionally. Sen. McCain is bewildered stating “are beyond anything that any rational military thinker that I know would ever contemplate,” referring to the limited military response that Obama has advocated avoiding extreme options. Subtle murmurs of some senior administration complain of the lack of activating the military arm forces.
Obama has taken the words of former Pres. Eisenhower to restrain the investments to military industrious tactics, seriously. Contain as necessary but do not fully engage. Invest into the infrastructures of our democracy. There is where we will excel, to the disadvantage of our opponents.
Obama’s advisors are in contrast to the previous three Leon E. Panetta, Robert M. Gates and Mr. Rumsfeld, said Anthony H. Cordesman. Three that were reckless in their use of our military personnel. Finically productive in filling the coffers of the military industries.
Mr. Hagel and Gen. Dempsey are a reflection of a Colin Powell distrust to engage in active military action on fuzzy orders. Referring to the previous chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff activating a military doctrine to merely satisfy the means to a political ends. It is not the chairman to decide what a civilian leadership government is to do. Chairman is but to asses the options on an issue and communicate it to the civilian leadership. Mr. Hagel expresses his role not whether to use force but how to use force after a civilian leadership requires its use. Pentagon is a tool of democracy that requires management. Mr. Hagel can argue for use of force or not but acknowledges that his mission is managing the Pentagon that is embedded within diplomacy of a civilian leadership.
Mr. Hagel demonstrated his concerns on the seriousness of use of military personnel. As a senator his denunciation of the Bush desires to extend the war with increasing military personnel to be put in harms way. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in January 2007 was addressed by Mr. Hagel when he stated ““This is a Ping-Pong game with American lives, And we better be damn sure we know what we’re doing, all of us, before we put 22,000 more Americans into that grinder.”!
Military analyst view Hagel and Dempsey as saluting soldiers that follow orders. Michael O’Hanlon of the military Brookings institute states,“They are doing what their commander in chief wants,”
When Obama pressed the pause button on what actions to take on the Syria issue, neither Mr. Hagel or Mr. Kerry had no prior knowledge of what the inner circle of the civilian leadership had decided. Obama has demonstrated it is not the tail that wags the dog .
