Here’s the problem for the GOP’s prospects in the upcoming mid-terms:

The imploded republican Party is in disarray; they have no ideas, agenda or cash on hand. All of their hopes for November lie in the hope that the American people will have selective amnesia about their failed policies over the previous 8 years before Obama. And they pray that their campaign of hate and misinformation will help the people forget. Furthermore, more republicans have decided to retire from Congress or lost their battle to be re-elected in their primaries so far, more than Democrats.

This is an anti-incumbent, blame the Party in control political season that historically goes against the Party in power. Yet for some reason the President’s poll numbers remain strong and the republicans are viewed less favorably than their democratic counterparts. And that is a very scary reality for those who so desperately want the Democrats to lose control of Congress.

Notice how GOP strategies and those in the know no longer talk about a republican tsunami coming in November…

"I need a freakin' job." That's the message President Obama saw as he arrived in Buffalo, N.Y., this afternoon for an event talking up the administration's success in creating new jobs.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-- Nine people were indicted Wednesday on federal charges of accessing President Barack Obama's student loan records while they were employed for a Department of Education contractor in Iowa. THE QUESTION NEEDS TO BE ASK, WHY…..HE WAS JUST A PRIVATE CITIZEN AND HIS SEALING OF HIS RECORDS HAD NOT GONE INTO EFFECT………….PLUS WHAT DID THE SHOW.

He shouldn't be just impeached, he should go to prison for falsifying a government document (birth) and swearing an oath on a bible. Beside that, why can't anyone access ANY document of his when we can of any other president? What does he have to hide?

Guess What Greece Has To Jettison in IMF Bail Out?= Gov Health Care!

Posted 05/13/2010


Policy Failure: Greece was told that if it wanted a bailout, it needed to consider privatizing its government health care system. So tell us again why the U.S. is following Europe's welfare state model.

The requirement, part of a deal arranged by the IMF, the European Union and the European Central bank, is a tacit admission that national health care programs are unsustainable. Along with transportation and energy, the bailout group, according to the New York Times, wants the Greek government to remove "the state from the marketplace in crucial sectors."

This is not some cranky or politically motivated demand. It is a condition based on the ugly reality of government medicine. The Times reports that economists — not right-wingers opposed to health care who want to blow up Times Square — say liberalizing "the health care industry would help bring down prices in these areas, which are among the highest in Europe."

It should be no surprise that in Greece, health care spending as a percentage of the economy is relatively steep. According to Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development data, it's higher than that in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Japan. Despite all the spending, Greece could never cover 100% of its citizens, reaching only about 83% for primary care.

After much wrangling, a bailout (an ill-advised reward for bad behavior) of roughly $145 billion is in line for a government that could not control its spending addiction.

The U.S. won't be the next Greece. Other nations, all of them with some version of government health care dragging them down, will fail first. But we are next in line among developed nations to turn over our health care to politically minded lawmakers and rule-making bureaucrats who operate in their own self-interest.

At what point will this nation realize that ObamaCare, lumped onto the pile of entitlements that are already headed into a financial abyss, is an expense that the nation cannot afford?

Are Consevatives so unsure of thier own sexuality they are scared that recognizing Gay rights it may influence there desires?------If you look up "homophobia" in the dictionary, it will probably tell you that it is the fear of homosexuals.

While many would take issue with that definition, it is nevertheless true that in many ways, it really is a fear of homosexuality or at least homosexuals, as we will see in this essay.

Homophobia is widespread in America, far more widespread than most heterosexuals realize, and it is far more subtle, too. The discrimination it inspires touches the lives of many Americans, not just gay Americans, but all Americans. And America pays a very dear price for it as we shall see.

The Effects of Homophobia On American Society
In 1994, during the campaign of Oliver North for the U.S. Senate, there were several of his supporters seen carrying signs along a Virginia freeway that read, "Homophobia Doesn't Kill." By announcing that belief, they were exposing their ignorance to the world, because homophobia does kill, and it kills with surprising frequency.
There are the obvious murders inspired by hatred. In the U.S., they number in the dozens every year. Abroad, the numbers run to the hundreds to thousands, no one knows the precise number for sure, as in many countries, the deaths of homosexuals are not considered worth recording as a separate category.

But there are other ways in which homophobia kills. There are countless suicides every year by gay men and lesbians, particularly youth, which mental health professionals tell us1 are not the direct result of the victim's homosexuality, but is actually the result of how the homosexual is treated by society. When one lives with rejection day after day, and society discounts one's value constantly, it is difficult to maintain perspective and realize that the problem is others' perceptions, not one's own, which is why suicide is several times as common among gay men as it is among straight men.
