A deal was cut so there's no shutdown this weekend. Cuts were made but the Borrowing & spending are still destroying the country from within.


We need to see More Cuts and they must reached a Balanced Budget.

Politicians suck. No doubt about it. They complain about Dumb Wars and Debt then Start Dumb Wars and Create Massive Debt.


We need a complete purge of ALL politicians via Term Limits. No more career criminals. We also must Prosecute Obama and any other president that Breaks The Law. No one Should be above the Law but we find Obama and Congress there all the time. It's why they are so arrogant.

36.7% of Planned Parenthood’s “Health Center Income” is from Abortions


Planned Parenthood likes to talk about how only 3% of their services are abortion.

A simple example of how they come to this calculation would be Planned Parenthood aborting 3 children and giving out 97 condoms. They would say that out of 100 services, 3 or 3% were abortion when in reality the significance and cost of the 3 abortions is much higher than 3% of their efforts.

Planned Parenthood’s accounting of 3% is misleading and not consistent with the rest of the business world. In college I interned at the airline manufacturer Boeing, which sells a lot of airplanes and also a lot of spare parts for those airplanes. For every airplane they sold for tens of millions of dollars, they also sold lots of spare parts for as little as 25 cents. By looking at TOTAL number of sales, you could conclude that 1% of their business was selling airplanes and 99% was spare parts, which is totally ridiculous. The reality was the value of the airplanes sales was close to 99% of their business and the spare parts 1%. Looking at the cost and effort of what is being offered is a much more accurate way to measure. Let’s apply this industry standard measure to Planned Parenthood:
THE TRUTH

All numbers are from the latest (2008) Planned Parenthood annual report:

* Annual abortions performed at Planned Parenthood: 305,310
* Average cost of abortion:$450 (This is based on what Planned Parenthood across the country has told Live Action staff, although it is slightly higher or lower depending on what part of the country it is.)
* Total income from abortions:$137,389,500
* Total health center income:$374,700,000

This means that fully 36.7% of Planned Parenthood health center income comes directly from aborting unborn children.



This is a far cry from the 3% number that they try to dupe the public with. Doesn’t it say something that even Planned Parenthood, the leading abortion chain in America, tries to downplay their role in ending the lives of unborn children?

Someone feeling a little guilty or are you a heartless, gutless Democrat?

Obama loses big-time. The republicans kicked his butt to the curb last night. I would have traded all the billions to stop the EPA carbon taxing though. I hope that's next in line. Then Obama and Soros will really be crying in their soup.
P.S. Screw Brazilian/Soros oil. Don't buy it from whoever sells it as gasoline..I sure won't.

John Boehner closes the deal to avoid government shutdown and Succeeds in getting Gov Size & Spending as Top Issue




His colleagues stood and cheered at his announcement of a deal, knowing Boehner secured more than $38.5 billion in cuts, a far higher figure than many of them expected just days before. Boehner still has to get the votes next week for the long-term budget deal, and he’s got a huge sales job ahead on raising the debt limit, not to mention debating the entire 2012 budget.

“It’s a big deal. It shows a great deal of leadership,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.), a Boehner ally.“It’s a big win for the speaker.”

In a larger sense, Boehner has achieved more than just a short-term budget victory — in his first three months as speaker, he’s helped turn the entire Washington dialogue into a debate about the size and scope of government.

He started the year by getting rid of earmarks, he’s pushing through some of the deepest spending cuts in American history, and he’ll now try to get most of the GOP Conference on board with Rep. Paul Ryan’s fiscal 2012 budget — one of the most audacious long-term spending plans in recent memory.

Joblessness is what is destroying this country. This budget is projected to kill 120,000 more jobs. The Republican assault against workers continues. What I can’t understand is if Republicans hate the lazy welfare sucking unemployed so much, how come they keep trying to create so many of them.
