IT'S TIME TO OCCUPY WASHINGTON
Exclusive: Larry Klayman calls Americans to descend on nation's capital

It’s bad enough that ordinary citizens’ interests and complaints are thrown in the trash by the political establishment in our nation’s capital, but when our fighting men and women in the military are also treated like dirt, then you know that the nation is headed down quickly.

Last week’s government leaks about a raid by Navy SEALs in Somalia, coming after the Benghazi and Extortion 17 scandals, show the lack of concern for the safety and well-being of our fighters paid by the establishment to our country’s heroes. In an Oct. 8, 2013, front-page article titled,“‘Imperfect Intelligence’ Said to Hinder U.S. Raid on Militant in Somalia,” New York Times reporters Nicholas Kulish and Eric Schmitt disclosed:

MILLION Vet March!

Why March?

I want you to circle the date of Sunday, October 13, 2013.

And then I want you to help “circle the wagons” on that day to help protect and defend our brave veterans who risked their lives for our freedom – and now are being barred from visiting the memorials erected to honor their deeds.

In a mean-spirited fit of selfish anger, Barack Obama has shut down our nation’s war memorials. And he has declared open war on our honored veterans!

The World War II memorial … the Vietnam Veterans Memorial … the Korean War Veterans Memorial – Obama has shut them all down to force his will on the House of Representatives and frankly, to get revenge on the American people who oppose Obamacare and his other naked power grabs.

Let’s put it plainly: Barack Obama is behaving like a vicious tyrant. And if he succeeds in this assault on the democratic system, the Republic we love is at mortal risk. It’s just that simple.

That’s why I am asking you now to take two decisive moves to show Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi – and all of their oppressive ilk in Washington – that “We the People” are still in charge. And we won’t rest until we take back our memorials and monuments!

Minimum wage IS a living wage, if you live within the wage. If you have a family or live beyond your means then naturally you'll come up short. It's simple economics. Unfortunately, that's no one's responsibility but the individuals, it sure as hell isn't mine.
Oh I could get by working a 40 hour work week at min wage if I had to.. The thing is most of those are starter jobs and not meant to feed a family.. Besides if your mate both worked a min wage job you could have scraped by.. But then again people just produce kids and single parents with no child support insight.. I guess the daddy was just a sperm donor and don't care about his kids.. Now with aca and hours being cut back to 28 a week they are probably looking for other part time jobs and government assistance..

Talk radio's Bill Press says don't give military families death benefits during shutdown

Liberal radio host Bill Press said Thursday that military families should not get a special exception from Congress so they can receive death benefits.

To do so would weaken resolve in the face of the Republicans during the government shutdown, he said.

On his daily radio program for the FSTV network, Press said: "What I’m going to say, no one else will say, but I’m going to say it anyway: I think it’s a big mistake to pay the death benefits to the families of members of the military who are killed in Afghanistan and whose bodies are being brought back to Dover Air Force base and were not going to get benefits because of the government shutdown."

Press added: "When you shut down the government, a lot of great things are not going to get done. And why should we make an exception for those that just happen to pop up and get a lot of media attention."

Funding those exceptions would allow the shutdown to continue, he said.

Unfortunately I agree with him.

The republicans wanted to shut the government down, now they want to take the pain away so they don't get the blame.

End the shutdown, vote on a clean CR, raise the debt ceiling and stop the tea party madness.

Republicans hit all-time low in Gallup poll. Is shutdown to blame?

By Linda Feldmann, October 9, 2013

In just a month, public approval of the Republican Party has dropped 10 points, from 38 to 28 percent, according to a Gallup poll conducted in the early days of the government shutdown.

(Video at Link)

A new poll suggests Americans are mostly holding Republicans responsible for the partial government shutdown. 63% percent say it's the GOP's fault, half put the blame on President Barack Obama and the Democrats.

REP. HUNTER: BLAME OBAMA FOR MISSING DEATH BENEFITS
'President could have fixed this with a pen stroke'
Published: 24 mins ago

The comments came from Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., in an interview with Fox News.

“The president of the United States … could have fixed this with a pen stroke about nine days ago, or whenever they found out,” Hunter said.

“He didn’t do it … He used our military families as pawns.”

The allegations involve the estimated $100,000 in death benefit that gets paid to families of fallen U.S. soldiers for travel, funeral arrangements and such.

When parts of the U.S. government were shut down because spending authority expired after Democrats in the U.S. Senate refused to discuss compromises suggested by the U.S. House at the start of October, funding for the military ran out.

Congress immediately approved legislation to provide funding for pay and allowances for the military, which Obama signed.

But the military then refused to pay the death benefits to soldiers’ families, saying the benefits weren’t included in the congressional authorization.

Hunter said any reasonable understanding of the bill made it clear that the benefits were included.

So withholding them,“definitely” was intentional, he said.

All the new drilling (regardless of who gets credit) really brought our prices down huh?
Funny thing. What most people don't realize it that the oil boom of recent years is because of high prices.
Oil that was technologically too expensive to drill is now economical because of high prices.
Lower the prices and the new sites become too expensive.
Oil like diamonds, is price controlled by a cartel.
