Yesterday, July 26, 2012, we learned that NC had the second largest  initial claims for unemployment in the nation.

“The largest increases in initial claims for the week ending July 14 were in California (+26,244), North Carolina (+11,948), Georgia (+8,372), Alabama (+4,148), and Oregon (+3,019)”

Today the news is even bleaker.

From the NC Dept. of Commerce July 27, 2012.

“Unemployment Rates Increase in 84 Counties in June”

“North Carolina’s statewide unemployment rate (not seasonally adjusted) was 9.9 percent in June. This was a 0.4 of a percentage-point increase from May’s revised rate of 9.5 percent, and a 1.0 percentage-point decrease over the year.

Over the month, the unemployment rate increased in 84 counties, decreased in 11 and remained the same in five. Thirty-nine counties had unemployment rates at or below the state’s 9.9 percent rate.

Scotland County recorded June’s highest unemployment rate at 17.6 percent, 0.6 of a percentage point higher than last month. Graham County had the second-highest rate at 15.2 percent. Currituck County had the lowest unemployment rate at 5.3 percent, followed by Orange, 7.1 percent; and Chatham & Henderson,
7.3 percent.

The unemployment rates increased in all 14 of the state’s Metropolitan Statistical Areas (Metros). The Rocky Mount Metro had the highest unemployment rate in June at 13.2 percent. The Asheville & Durham/Chapel Hill Metros reported the month’s lowest unemployment rates at 7.9 percent, which increased 0.3 of a percentage point for Asheville and 0.5 of a percentage point for Durham/Chapel Hill. Raleigh/Cary followed at 8.0 percent.”

http://www.ncesc1.com/pmi/rates/PressReleases/County/NR_June2012CountyRateRelease_M.pdf

Mecklenburg County, mostly consisting of Charlotte, NC, the site of the 2012 Democrat Convention, had an unemployment rate increase from May to June of .3 to a rate of 9.9 percent. Adjacent county to the west, Gaston, went from 10.2 to 10.9 percent.  Guilford County, containing both Greensboro and High Point had an increase from 9.6 to 10.3 percent.

I am certain that Obama will portray this as utopian conditions.

    …”one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”…refers to the viewpoint that one has when evaluating something.
    The same holds true when we evaluate political theory by it’s application. Those currently running our country are using theory which has already been proven to be flawed and failed(both communism and Keynesian economics). This is what happens when we employ those, to positions of authority, who have only had the experience gained in school books.
    My opening statement here more accurately begs the question…Is the problem being generated in our economy the result of incompetence ?…or, on a more sinister note…by design?
    I have read over and over again how the soutions being applied to our economy have failed. This statement would imply that, for whatever reason, there is a desire to make things better and attempts to repair it have failed. If we apply the viewpoint of a Marxist/Leninist, however, they have succeeded beyond all expectation, and our economy is being systematically destroyed and we will end up with a strong central government in complete control of the means of production. In other words, it is not until one system is removed, that the other may be implemented. So…what does bo mean, when viewing the destruction in toto, that ( in bo’s own words)…”they have succeeded”? Perhaps there are those in N.C. that would beg to differ with this administration’s viewpoint.
    People had better get to educating themselves as to what is going on here as it is no longer subtle…. (granted, it is a bit of an inconvenience)….or perhaps they are content with being where they are…..I can almost guarantee, that if they are dissatisfied wth things the way they are, and thinking “things just couldn’t get any worse”…..that they are “REALLY” not going to like what is coming to them should this administration remain in control…..back there…in North Carolina.

    Former FBI Chief: Bachmann’s Muslim Claim ‘Morally Wrong’
    Friday, 27 Jul 2012 01:12 PM

    By Ronald Kessler

    Rep. Michele Bachmann’s claim that an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could be connected to the Muslim Brotherhood is “morally wrong” and undermines the war on terror, former FBI Director William Webster tells Newsmax.

    Because several living or deceased family members of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, have connections to the Muslim Brotherhood or its operatives, Bachmann and four other Republican House members asked the departments of Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security and the State Department to investigate whether the U.S. government is being infiltrated by Muslim extremists.

    “This is unfair, counterproductive, and it’s probably, in some respects, illegal or tortuous to be saying those things,” Webster says. “But more importantly, it gets in the way of our being able to prevent terrorist acts from happening.”

    Webster notes that as part of a background investigation to obtain a top-secret security clearance, the FBI would have looked into any questionable tie.

  4. Sounds to me like even members of the FBI are subversives. One day ALL OF THE SLIME WILL REALLY REGRET WHAT THEY ARE ADVOCATING,and I will watch them ALL wallow in the slime pit which they themselves thought was so wonderful,and so great in the beginning. I personally stand behind Bachman…….I believe she is doing the right thing.

  5. Paxson……..
    Sorry to hear that your wife got laid off. Doesn’t that make you want to kiss Soetoro’s STINKING feet.

  6. observer – That FBI fellow, William Webster, is just covering for his agency and other agencies. The fact is, the intel agencies recruit really risky types if they think they would be “useful.” In fact, it is my personal belief, that is what has allowed Obama to fly in under the radar. He was recruited as a Muslim for the CIA when that agency did so much of that during the Cold War.

  7. Dean M.

    But this statement:
    Webster notes that as part of a background investigation to obtain a top-secret security clearance, the FBI would have looked into any questionable tie.

    just doesn’t compute with the highest office….since it is over all of those with “top-secret security clearances” and governs even the rules for such clearances if it should decide to do so. I don’t think Obama had to fly under any radar since we’ve discovered there is really no radar once a party places any name on the ballot. In his case, and perhaps even any candidate for the highest office….the usual grid for radar is disconnected. For some reason THAT office is “just too big to fail” in the status quo minds. IOW, it’s good to be the king!

  8. observer — Did you see the article over at American Thinker today, “How the Left Sabotages the Literary Right” by Jack Cashill? Apparently LTC Lakin has come out with a book, OFFICER’S OATH, and the Left is trying to sabotage it. There is a lot of commentary over there. My comments are under Dean+M (for some reason the underscore shows as a plus sign).

    When I was in the Army Security Agency as Vietnamese linguist, NSA brought on board native linguists in Vietnam during the war to work as transcribers. They were supposed to be “cleared” but information was withheld by some of them that should have been passed on (concerning downed pilots). Another Vietnamese woman, who worked for our battalion commander, was an agent for the other side. Later on, as my career progressed, I saw many risks were taken of this nature.

  9. To continue–I see Obama as having been recruited as a Muslim by the CIA. Ian Johnson, in his book, A MOSQUE IN MUNICH, goes into the history of Muslim recruitment by the CIA after World War II. The agency which became the CIA took over where the Nazis left off. The Nazis had recruited Muslims to fight against the Soviets. Obama’s false identities, SSN#, false birth certificate, his being gone from Columbia, travels to Pakistan, his getting a pass in the Media and Congress, to include the Electoria College, his working for Business International Corporation (BIC) all point to the CIA.

    I even think former President Bush gave some kind of support to Obama’s political rise. The “insiders” saw him as an expert on Muslim affairs.

  10. While I’m at it–before I have to go to work–I’ll simply say again, I believe Obama is a natural born citizen. He is not Obama Sr’s biological son. I tend to think Malcolm X is the real biological father. The birth certificate codes penciled in on the form released by the White House indicate the father information was blank on the original form. The layered information may have had to do with Obama having a different name at birth. If he did have that name, it may have been borrowed without Obama Sr’s knowledge. He was the only African in Hawaii going to school at the time. Eventually the truth will come out.

    DeanM
    I can see what you are saying concerning bo’s possible connections to the CIA. Sometimes what the facts appear to add up to is not what they add up to. This is CIA tradition…i.e. “plausible deniability”….or…”nothing is what it seems”…
    If indeed bo had in fact worked for the CIA, or any other intelligence agency, there would always be the factor that his tenure there could be denied. The CIA is very good at that. I don’t see that there would be an awful lot of difference in speculation under previous employment conditions and the speculation that is going on now.
    I still believe there is an Islamo-communist connection, as you yourself have pointed out in the past. Apart from all that, this man’s past, even only considering his connection to Chicago politics, just reeks of illigitimacy. He is definitely a cog in the wheel, we just don’t know for sure what wheel.

  14. coldwarvet2…………
    You have said quite eloquently exactly what I believe. Put in less eloquent language “If you think things are bad now wait until you start feeling what Soetoro really has in mind.” But as I have said so many times you can say this stuff until you are hoarse,but until somebody initiates action everything will continuet to get worse

    Here is the plan –
    1. Go to your nearest grocery store and buy an inexpensive Birthday card.

    2. Go home and write a little note saying “I hope this is your correct Birthday”

    3. This is important – Address as follows –

    Mr. Barry Soetoro
    1600 Kendonesia Ave. NW
    Usurperville, D.C. 20500
    4. This is doubly important .
    Place on the front top corner or back the following return address-

    1600 Pa. Ave.,N.W.
    Washington, D.C. 20500
    Either Way it get’s there.

    I posted this at the very end of the last topic so some folks may not have seen out. It’s another example of government insanity and tyranny against the people. God provides our rain and these idiots are now going after people for saving it.

    Oregon Man Sentenced to 30 Days in Jail — for Collecting Rainwater on His Property
    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/oregon-man-sentenced-30-days-jail-collecting-rainwater-his-property

    Combine this with the crackdown on growing your own food in some states and it’s obvious the government is moving in the direction where they do not want anybody able to provide for themselves.

  19. Paxson………I don’t think there is any worse feeling than being laid off from your employment. We all know why this is happening as well. I will only say that it is going to be a very long time,if at all,when the employers once again begin to hire additional help. Further for those employers who have been forced to answer the demands of their UNION help there is no longer any margin, and when your margin is gone you are trading dollars, and your profitability is gone. You can do better by selling out and making certain investments instead.

  20. Philo Publius………
    That is because growing things can turn into a huge UNTAXED BLACK MARKET. This is all going to change (HOPEFULLY)in 115 days. If it doesn’t change you might want to start practicing eating grubs,worms,and other bugs before they are BANNED.

  21. Philo Publius……..
    Once the CALIFORNIA TYPE crazies in our government discover that people are still alive and are eating bugs etc, it is probable that you will see the government start massive bug extermination programs. I am serious. I know this all sounds pretty BUGGY but I honestly believe that our society is so permeated by the insane that this all could indeed come to pass.

  22. Philo Publius……..Then to compound insult upon injury when they discover that society are eating wild berries, etc,then the government will start so called massive “WEED” erradication programs, and using defoliants such as agent orange,to guarantee that people will never consume anything which is grown in ground contaminated by agent orange.

  23. ……….in conclusion the continuity of our lives could easily be compromised by the so called GOVERNMENT. If we continue to sit on our backsides and do nothing to intervene then I would say that we will get exactly whatever the CRAZIES choos to put upon us. Enjoy the flavor of your earthworm while you can. You might try deep frying them.

    Reading your reply to paxson…a thought comes to mind I hope will be somewhat comforting.
    Thes eemployers and potential employers are, for the most part, not stupid. When interviewing for an initial hire, one of the first questions that a prospective employer is asking himself is…”what will I be facing down the road when or if it comes time to let this person go”?…”the union”?…the NAACP”?…”the gay lobby”?…other etc’s of a legal nature.
    Of course the other question will be “what kind of perks is this hire going to cost me”?…in terms of health insurance and/or other requisite government requirements?…
    See a picture beginning to emerge here? The first rehires or new hires are going to be those who present the least amount of liability and/or expense.

  29. Paxson, I certainly add my deep regrets over your wife’s loss of her job and sincerely hope that she can find even a better one, if that is possible.

    Being in rather a contemplative mood the last several days, I have mostly been reading and not having much to say lately. There are, as always, some very good posts and they are appreciated very much.

  30. A glimmer of hope? Even via a judge!!

    Obamacare’s contraception mandate loses in Colorado court

    A coalition of civil rights group has persuaded a Denver, Colo. judge that Obamacare’s preventive care coverage provides a “substantial burden” on a Colorado company’s free exercise of religion.

    Judge John Kane, who was appointed by President Jimmy Carter, granted a “preliminary injunction” barring enforcement of the law against the company, pending a full trial.

    “This is the very first ruling on whether Obamacare can violate religious freedom and the judge said no,” said Matt Bowman, a lawyer for legal advocacy group Alliance Defending Freedom, formerly known as the Alliance Defense Fund.

  31. TRR: UN Arms Treaty Dead
    July 27, 2012, 6:53 PM

    Talks fell apart today over the dreaded Arms Trade Treaty. It seems that the US requested an extension of time to negotiate the agreement, and that opened the door for a number of other nations to register objections. Now it appears that reaching any agreement within the required time frame is out of the question.
    For now, anyway, it is on “indefinite hiatus.”

    Zach,

    Same here. I didn’t get the Giant Baby theme? What was that suppose to mean?

  36. Observer (or anyone),

    Aren’t the Muslims “exempt” from the mandate simply as it violates their religion? I remember reading about that portion of the bill. If so, how can this not be discrimination and favoritism for one religious group versus another?

  37. William – I have no idea.

  38. Muslims Exempt from ObamaCare?
    http://frontpagemag.com/2011/eric-burns/muslims-exempt-from-obamacare/

    My two cents…….
    The Obama Administration has already handed out 111 Obamacare waivers to US companies. Unfortunately, if you’re a small business or don’t have connections you can’t get a waiver for your company. And there are some select groups who are exempt (Prisoners, illegal aliens, and foreign nationals, Amish, Mennonites, Scientologists and some Muslims). I think that Issuing waivers and exemptions to certain groups of people provides unequal treatment under the law. All laws should apply to all people. Affordable Care Act should have been declared unconstitutional on that factor not the Commerce clause. Just my opinion.

  39. HR3590 has more than 2000 pages but here is a summary, only 49 pages…..
    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:HR03590:@@@D&summ2=3&

  40. In the HR3590 summary, the words “Requires the Secretary” (of HSS) appear 98 times and “Directs the Secretary” appears 64 times. The law gives a tremendous amount of power to one individual, Kathleen Sebelius, who was not elected and who “serves at the will of the President”. The IRS may need as many as 16,000 additional auditors, agents and other employees to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans.

    Getting off my soap box.

  41. Unalienable Rights -vs- Inalienable Rights,

    They are definitely not the same thing.

    UNALIENABLE:

    The state of a thing or right which cannot be sold.
    The natural rights of life and liberty are UNALIENABLE. Bouviers Law Dictionary 1856 Edition

    “Unalienable: incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1523: “You can not surrender, sell or transfer unalienable rights, they are a gift from the creator to the individual and can not under any circumstances be surrendered or taken. All individual’s have unalienable rights.”

    INALIENABLE:

    “Rights which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights.” Morrison v. State, Mo. App., 252 S.W.2d 97, 101.

    — “You can surrender, sell or transfer inalienable rights if you consent either actually or constructively. Inalienable rights are not inherent in man and can be alienated by government”.

    For more case law and Historical definitional differences:

    http://www.gemworld.com/USA-Unalienable.htm

  42. Jonah,

    Thanks for the update. I was aware of reading that many special groups were exempt including religious ones. This can and should be challenged in court. Chief Justice Roberts opened a floodgate of legal challenges to the SCOTUS for the next 20 years. He will be busy..

  43. William….according to PJMedia:

    Laws almost always create unanticipated consequences. This is certainly likely to be the case when politicians bend over backwards to accommodate the currents of political correctness.

    ObamaCare uses the Social Security language of the Internal Revenue Code to determine who is eligible for “religious conscience” objection to the insurance mandate. Specifically, the law provides exemptions for adherents of “recognized religious sects” that are “conscientiously opposed” to accepting benefits from any insurance, public or private.

    As a consequence of this provision, Muslims may claim a religious exemption that is denied Christians and Jews. Since Islam believes insurance is haraam (forbidden) and likens insurance to gambling, the religion is excluded from requirements, mandates, or penalties set forth in the bill. Others who fall into this category are the Amish, American Indians, and Christian Scientists. Although the U.S. Constitution grants all Americans equal protection of the law, some Americans are more equal than others.

    more…
    http://pjmedia.com/blog/obamacares-muslim-exemption/

    So they get out seemingly because they don’t accept any insurance. I highly doubt that everyone claiming to be Muslim has fallen into that category though and lives without coverage of some kind. Just not believable. If that broad paintbrush is used for that specific favoritism then I would think other Religions who have a history of not providing specific types of insurance to their emplyees should also have a claim for same treatment. It’s an indirect way of promoting Sharia type law within our own boarders, helping to eliminate other religious freedoms without literally cutting off hands or stoning….just close down hospitals and other institutions of conscience, small businesses, etc. without literally having to hold a gun to their heads. Same effect though!

  44. Coldwarvet2……….Good morning,
    Having spent over 45 years of my life operating myt own commercial printing company, I learned a few essential things early on. One of these is the FACT that you MAKE your own success in such enterprise. You have the discretion to pick and choose your employees as well..It isn’t necessarily whether it is liability,or expense. It ends up being a multitude of things. I have both hired and fired people. In Indiana we must pay into unemployment if we employ 4 or more people.We are treated to having to pay a township taxation on our production assetts as well as our building/buildings. Then we get to pay a county level taxation.then wqe get to pay a couple of state taxes,in addirion to our business ,and witholding taxes. Just taxation alone puts a lot of burden upon small business, but then along comes trade unions who think that they should tell you how much to pay your employees, and how many people should be operating your production machinery. There are a hell of a lot of people who even think that your annual sales is what you get to keep. Then they try to tell business people how to run their businesses which they DID BUILD THEMSELVES. Then we get into the benefit area. One of these is Healthcare coverage. Most employers from the 1950s forward recognised that providing a healthcare coverage was an incentive for people to apply for a job. In the early days it all went quite well. Then gradually the carriers of the insurance started demanding thhhat the employer needed to follow their criteria when hiring employees. This didn’t sit well with a lot of small business people. What gives the insurance company the right to tell the business operator who he can hire and who he can’t hire. This is complete BULLSHI#. Many small business operators simply started going together, and using a cooperative sort of healthcare coverage. This was very short lived. If I have a potential employee who I know has all the skills which I need no matter if he is 55 years of age or 25 I probably will hire him/her. But NOW if I hire the 55 year old I am told by the insurance carrier that my rates are going to go right through the roof. This has nothing to do with me as a business operator. It is the INSURANCE provider. So to avoid unnecessary stuff which takes up a lot of my time, I find myself not being able to devote as much time to competitively operating my business. Instead it becomeas a nearly continuous battle with healthcare providers. When I am forced to hire UNSKILLED people to operate machinery which requires a skill level I am placing the equipment at substantial risk, and the quality of the printed piece as well. So I now find myself at the doorway of exit from my business,because all of the battles with the insurance carriers,and the liability of being forced to accept LESS than quality employees. When the CUSTOMER sees a deterioration of the quality he is accustomed to receiving, he begins to look for another supplier of his advertising pieces, his technical manuals,etc. As I stated there are a hell of a lot of people around who THINK that they KNOW ALL there is to know about the operation of small business. To these people I say Hey jump right in the water is just fine, and show us all HOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE DONE. I will tell you though it will be a REAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE,form as long as you last. If you discover thhat something is wrong…you are not making MILLIONS of dollars OVERNIGHT,or maybe not even in several years. Then would be a great time to RETHINK your BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE. You might discover that some schooling might be needed. That is if you havn’t already declared bankruptcy. Fortunately I saw the light early on ,and went to business school after hours. Then you get the privilege of your FIRST BIT OF LEARNING. Small business ISN’T as easy as you first thought,and what the hell,you will be lucky if you get to keep one tenth of one percent of what you earn. Now you know one of the reasons why some of our business community have closed up shop in the US and taken their businesses overseas. If you must hire unskilled people then it makes sense to pay at unskilled level as well. Then when your unskilled help becomes skilled you adjust their pay accordingly.
    My oldest son still operates the business. He has refocused a lot of the original design of the company. He has broken it intro three smaller companies. There was a valid reason for this especially with regard to where American business stands now. At the same time he reduced the number of employees in each company. All are highly skilled,and well trained people. They ALL now purchase their OWN healthcare including my son. It is not cheap. But he has increased the pay of his employees to compensate. They ALL agreed with him,and wanted to keep their jobs, because the lowest pay bracket that he offers starts at $13.00 per hour, but you MUST be able to do the entire production of a printed piece from art to finished product. To compound this he offers a production and quality bonus to his employees. If somebody wishes to attend certain schooling which will add to their skill level he offers them a subsidy. In nshort he knows how to be creative. More importantly he does not sit in his office all day. He keeps in circulation ,watching and even doing right alongside of his employees. He is still profitable.

  45. Observer,

    I understand. However, those living in States that require insurance, such as auto, regardless of religion, must carry it or face penalty. they are not exempt from both alternatives.

    Additionally, there are individuals within such religions that do in fact carry insurance such as Hospital, Life, ect., therefore it cannot be declared that “ALL” persons therefore claim exempt based on religion. In other words, each individual must have the ability to pick and choose (back to the liberty definition of free choice) of which we all have (or should). The Federal government cannot pick and choose which groups under an umbrella clause sectional exemption. Neither was this allowed under any other tax, including Federal Taxes. Every group, religious or otherwise, must pay taxes. Not always equally, but that depends on many other factors.

    My point is simply that Christians cannot be denied that same exemption allotted to all other religious groups. That would be and should be challenged.

    Contraceptive Mandate Suffers Court Blow as Catholic Business Wins Crucial Court Case

    A Colorado business owned by a Catholic family does not have to comply with President Barack Obama’s new healthcare mandate that private employers provide employees with insurance coverage of birth control, a Colorado federal judge ruled on Friday.
    U.S. District Judge John Kane in Denver temporarily blocked the government from the enforcing the contraception requirement against the religious owners of Hercules Industries Inc, a private manufacturer of heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment.

    The ruling only affects this plaintiff but opens the door for any company to seek relief on religious grounds. Lawyers for the Department of Health and Human Services argued that a temporary exemption for Hercules would interfere with the government’s ability to implement the law. But Kane was not persuaded.

    “This harm pales in comparison to the possible infringement upon (the Newland family’s) constitutional and statutory rights,” the judge wrote. He noted that the government had already created numerous exceptions for religious employers, exempting over 190 million health plan participants.

    The law posed an imminent harm to the company’s owners by forcing them to support contraception, sterilization and abortion in violation of their religious beliefs or face steep fines, Kane said.

    Members of the Newland family, which owns Hercules, sued in April, challenging the provision that is part of the new health care law, the Affordable Care Act of 2010.

    Roman Catholic bishops and many Republican lawmakers oppose the provision. The Catholic Church launched a campaign against it from Sunday Mass pulpits across the country. Catholic Church doctrine opposes artificial contraception but most American Catholics do not adhere to church policy.

    Hercules provides a self-insured group plan for its 265 full-time employees that does not cover birth control, sterilization or abortion-inducing drugs. But the new regulation would require Hercules to provide such coverage by Nov. 1, the ruling said.

    Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius expressed disappointment with the decision in a statement.

    “This lawsuit was not brought by a religious organization. Rather, it was brought by a for-profit commercial enterprise whose purpose is to sell HVAC equipment,” she said, adding that healthcare decisions should be between women and their doctors, not their employers.

    “Every American, including family business owners, should be free to live and do business according to their faith,” Matthew Bowman, a lawyer for Hercules with the Alliance Defense Fund, said in a statement.

    So I would have to agree with you in sorts. While the aim of any business operator is to earn a profit, he can only do so if he can keep his labor costs, material costs,and business taxes at reasonable levels. Today we are facing a lot of unknown values, which will probably remain unknown values for a long time into the future. This fact by itself does nothing to invigorate small business owners. I recently told my son that I am really glad that I am no longer operating the business. He is now in his mid fitties.

  49. OldSalt,

    I can honestly say, that it is people such as yourself that further solidified the foundation of America. I am personally proud to have interaction with you over the last few years. You would have enjoyed having the opportunity of meeting my late grandfather, whom like you – was a Sailor for our Country. His joining was shortly prior to WWII, then served the entire duration of the war in the Navy Pacific fleet and shortly thereafter going into the private sector. He was in many various jobs in the Navy including Battleships and Subs and story accounts that were mind numbing. Once a walking piece of history – I dearly miss our talks. He passed in 2007.

  50. I would argue that the SIMPLE FACT that the US Government is ATTEMPTING to ram legislation down the throats of the Catholic Church which is TOTALLY IN CONFLICT with the beliefs of the church should be enough, whether or not all Catholics practice birth control or not,to justify mass lawsuits. Every parish across the US should file a civil lawsuit against the law, as well as the people who are attempting to ram it down the parish throats. I believe that NOBODY has the right to attempt to force the Catholic church,or anyone else to subsidise the use of contraceptives. This is total BULLSHI#

  51. Oldsalt79
    I hear ya…I believe anyone who has ever had the privilege of trying to make a living from scratch would agree with everything you say. Looking at the big picture, which takes in virtually all the contingencies associated with making a profit in business, the entities friendly to the current statist (profit destroying) administration begin to stand out. They are currently operating in a previously unheard of and unanticipated environment which has allowed them to gain a tremendous amount of political power.
    The primary point in my post was that, like a chronic and progressive disease, such as we find in cancer, for instance, eventually the disease will kill the host. What is happening in this country at present is that, by virtue of these myriad entities, which exist primarily to extract sustainance from the hosts (both employer and worker) they, through such manipulations as collective bargaining, or indirectly, through the threat of lawsuits, have made the business environment so toxic as to cause it to begin to collapse altogether. I believe that, if conditions change at all for the better, that those benefiting the most from these desructive entities, will therefore suffer the most, when the pendulum begins to swing the other way, as it should be. When considering the above comment, it might be well to include those who actively support these entities i.e. those in positions of political power at the very heart of the problem….congress, executive, judicial…need I say more.
    True Americans have traditionally had long memories when it comes to rewarding bad behavior on the part of their representatives. At least as long as 4 years.

  52. Coldwarvet2…….
    I would concurr that political POWER is going to LITERALLY be the DEATH of us all. Now we have the people like MMMMMSSSSS. DOWN-ON ALL, and MMMMMMMSSSSSSSS. DECENERATE saying that they hope that the owner of Chick Fil-A contracts cancer and dies a horrible death. These are two classic examples of WHAT IS WRONG with America. They both need to be careful about their wishful thinking because it could be either of them who contracts a horrible illness………FULL BLOWN AIDS,……. and instead of the owner of Chick A Fil dying a horrible death it could be either ,or both of them. Frankly I don’t think anybody would miss either of them. Just my viewpoint.

    TRR: UN Arms Treaty Dead
    July 27, 2012, 6:53 PM
    Talks fell apart today over the dreaded Arms Trade Treaty. It seems that the US requested an extension of time to negotiate the agreement, and that opened the door for a number of other nations to register objections. Now it appears that reaching any agreement within the required time frame is out of the question.
    For now, anyway, it is on “indefinite hiatus.”

    The Navy in the 50s was a GREAT organisation,and I enjoyed being a member of it, even though we spent 4 hour watches in 115 degree,and more engine rooms,and much hotter firerooms. In those days most “man-of war ships had at least two for and aft engine rooms and a like fireroom configuration. However auxiliary ships, cargo and troop carriers often had only one big engineering space. such as the old converted Victory ships which were called APAs. Navy cargo ships were usually designated AKA. There was still a few Liberty ships in Navy hands as well. But by the end of the Korean War both of the two liberty ships had been scratched from the Naval assets list. Out of 2750 Liberties there are only two remaining certified,and still affloat. The SS Jeremiah Obrien in California,and the John W Brown at Baltimore. Anybody who wants to see what these ships are you can visit either one of them. Both have summer day cruises, as well as movies of the wartime Murmansk run. I am apprehensive with respect to how much longer these two ships will be operating. I recently learned that both operators are having financial difficulties. Both ships carry a MARAD designation of Maritime Museums. But if you are so inclined I personally invite anyone who wants to look into our maritime past should take a tour of one of these ships. At your request they will even treat you to a look at the reciprocating propulsion beast (triple expansion engine) that pushed these ships through the water at a maximum speed of 11 knots.

  55. Coldwarvet2……….
    Whenever I look at what has happened to out military services I get a feeling of helplessness. I see grand experiments being carried out,and at some point I believe that the grand expirement will be the cause of the deaths of a complete infantry Regiment. We see our (ALLEGED ) potus playing footsies with our sworn enemies. When the hell was the last time we done that? When the hell was the last time that we gave aid to and otherwise abbetted our enemies? Until recently a sworn enemy was JUST THAT. Now our sworn enemy is allowed to LIVE AND WALK AMONG US. This causes me to ask everyone of you,WHY IN THE NAME OF CHRIST do you ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE. NEVER in the history of our country has a SWORN ENEMY been KNOWINGLY allowed to WALK AND LIVE among us. Now the SAME BASTARDS are DEMANDING that we CHANGE OUR LAWS so that they can HAVE THEIR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO. ( SHARIA LAW in DEARBORN Michigan), and THOSE WHO are Christians will be tried under the Sharia law. YES that could happen……….if we are so DUMB AS TO ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN. This all should NEVER HAVE HAPPENED TO BEGIN WITH.

    Regarding the North Carolina unemployed; when the government states the unemployed in a specific place do you know if they include those who have given up looking for employment, and those who are no longer receiving us government unemployment comp. Here in Indiana many are in the later group now. In reality our unemployment is closer to 15% than the 8.5% that is being touted.

  57. NBC cut the most moving part of the Opening Ceremony last night in London…….WHY?

    The Memorial Tribute to the victims of the 7/7 ISLAMIC BOMINGS in London was completely cut from transmission in the United States……WHY?

    A six minute moving tribute sang by Emeli Sande was conducted for the living crowd of 80,000, but apparently it wasn’t good enough to meet NBC standards to view in America…….WHY?

    Could it be because NBC did not want to offend our MUSLIM pRESIDENT?

    I am amazed at how far the main stream media is going to hide what is happening in America and around the world.

    All of this in “‘the land of the free and the home of the brave”….what a message of “hope and change” NBC sent the rest of the world last night.

    Unalienable Rights -vs- Inalienable Rights,

    * * * * * *

    I very familiar with the links and the information you posted from the links William,, as I’ve read the info at the links before you posted them here.

    I was surprised to find information regarding the history of the Declaration of Independence and the history of our nation and the terms unalienable and inalienable,
    and I posted what I was surprised to find about this from a link here:
    http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/unalienable.htm

    Regarding the links and the legal info you posted about what the legal distinct definitions and concepts of what unalienable and inalienable mean in distinct meanings; just ask yourself the simple question: Are all gifts and rights and properties unalienable?

    The answer is no. If I gave to you a pony is that gift “unalienable?” The answer is no. Therefore not all gifts, rights, or properties are unalienable. Some gifts, rights, and properties can be alienated, separated, transferred, removed, destroyed or severed either legally or illegally by governments; or by lawful and legal consent and surrender or transfer by persons; or by the illegal transfers in the illegal actions of persons.

  59. Last night at the opening ceremony in London, NBC cut a six- minute moving tribute to the victims of the 7/7 ISLAMIC BOMBINGS in the London Underground….WHY?

    Emeile Sande sang a beautiful l version of “Abide With Me”. The crowd of 80,000 was so quite you could hear a pin drop. BBC broadcast the entire version of the ceremony.

    Did NBC cut the memorial to the victims of ISLAMIC TERRORISM so as not to offend our ISLAMIC pRESIDENT? It sure is odd that they found time to present all the other happenings, but no time to honor the innocent dead.

    I am sure most Americans would have appreciated seeing the tribute. Thanks to BBC, I had a chance to see it.

    Oh, yes, I agree, but it IS interesting that it was apparently US action that started the snowball effect to postpone the vote. We know that this is just another round in the game.

    Do you suppose that the heat from the folks here at home gave the administration pause, and that “they” decided to wait and try again after Nov.? There were so many opposing, vehement voices that this one may not be a battle they want to perpetuate right now.

    I see some of what was predicted in this administration in that the Russians are now wanting to build a naval base in Cuba. The Russians have always been in search of warm water ports world wide, but until now have been rather hesitant to put one in our back yard. Putin, along with a host of others, have lost respect for the U.S. They now see us as weak, as we battle internally to preserve our heritage, while fighting futile, unproductive, and protracted conflicts elsewhere. I can’t think of a time in my short life when we have been in worse shape politically…even under Carter.

    Like the rest of mainstream Americans, you are still stunned by the worst attacks on America since Pearl Harbor, ostensibly at the hands of some obscure Muslim group known as al Qaeda.

    Now imagine that I walked up to you and told you that ten years from that date, a man named Barack Hussein Obama II, who as a youngster in Indonesia studied the Qur’an and as a man, publicly admitted that the Muslim call to prayer was “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset,” would occupy the White House. Then I proceeded to tell you that the construction of Islamic mosques would be at an all-time high across the United States, including the push for a new Islamic center less than a hundred yards of the very site on which we stood. I then added that a Muslim advocacy group known as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (the ideological predecessor of Qaeda and Hamas), would be heavily involved in shaping U.S. policies ranging from domestic security to the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law) inside the United States.

    The Obama regime is doing everything possible to make the numbers look better for the usurper, and it’s so bad they can’t cover it all up, that is why we see 9.9% instead of 8.0% unemployment.

    I am sure unemployment is worse than reported.

  70. A Crazy Old Coot

    Re the unemployment rate, remember that it does not include anyone that does not sign up for unemployment. A part timer that is working well below what is needed for his family is not counted. And then there are some that have feelings for others and do not get jobs because they “can” survive on what they have and so leave the jobs for those that “really” need it. Then you have the welfare people that don’t get counted either because they would lose their welfare if they took a job.

    It just goes on and on. None of the gov numbers are honest or even close to right.

  71. coldwarvet2

    Just want to reiterate from time to time that when referencing the establishment in Washington DC, please do not refer to them as “leaders”. They have proven over time their inability to lead. They are, by definition, merely “representatives”… There, by our will, to carry out our will. We have granted them some authority, which they all too gladly accept, which is only intended to aid in carrying out that which they have been tasked, by us, to do.
    Not so much those at this site, but I have seen even our most respected journalists refer to these people in this fashion…as recently as today…This, to me, shows a lingering and improper mindset that we must set aside in order to keep things in proper perspective.

    Please see the entire video & especially see the 7:00 mark:

    “In 1934 at the height of the great depression, Congressman Louis T. McFadden of Pennsylvania courageously exposed what had happened.

    He declared, “Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its power.

    But the truth is, the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the government of the United States. It controls everything here. And it controls our foreign relations. It makes or breaks government at will. No man and no body of men is more entrenched in power than the arrogant credit monopoly which operates the Federal Reserve Board and Federal Reserve Banks.”

    (Continued….See the video the full text is written out in the video.)

    It is suggested that attorney’s should sue the Federal Reserve Board and demand they return the money they stole from the federal government and We The People with penalties and interest. (Think George Soros, etc.) and have these people criminally prosecuted and convicted for their their financial high crimes they are committing against us.

    It is suggested that the Federal Reserve Board are secretive criminals and evil thieves that should be publicly exposed, publicly held accountable for the financial high crimes they are committing, and be put in jail for their usurpation’s of government power and the grand thefts they are committing that harm and destroy people’s lives, and that destroy and overthrow a country’s legal powers illegally.

    OK…honest…
    One of my points was that these people actually solicit us for the privilege to represent us, but at the same time seem to miss what their actual relationship is to us. In other words, those votes are solicited, and because they are solicited, they must have some value (they spend millions to get them). What you are saying is that value is somehow lost along the way. What I am saying is let’s make them patently aware of just what the value of those votes is and to cease their little game of misrepresentation and/or over-representation.
    Is it possible that we could send representatives to Washington to just enforce and/or maintain what we already have? Must they be constantly manufacturing these great and expensive causes i.e. “bridges to nowhere”…what absolute idiocy. Is it possible that we could send representatives to Washington to actually save some money in these austere times, as opposed to…well…I’m preaching to the choir now…

  84. A Crazy Old Coot

    To answer your main question, no we cannot send honest representatives to Washington. The honest people cannot afford to run for office. You have to be rich to even consider running. And if you are already rich then you don’t need to represent anyone but yourself. Once elected you are assured of a lifetime of income on the backs of the rest of us. OH, if only we could just elect one “commom” citizen to office to really represent us.

    The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s?

    Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed their Christmas family pic.”

    The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation.
    I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

    I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America.
    They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

    I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.
    I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagans made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable.
    Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

    Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths.
    They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

    I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able too be proud of America.
    I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites, because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.

    I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.”
    No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

    And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies.
    He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance,
    Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family.
    He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea.
    He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address.
    He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman.
    He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today.
    He has fought for abortion procedures and opposed rulings that protected women and children, that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support.
    He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel.
    His wife treats being the First Lady, as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world).
    I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

    I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies.
    We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

    Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin, it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies.
    And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

    It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is one term.
    I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are.
    There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

    As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House,” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader.
    He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed.
    Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled.
    Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…
    Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders.
    He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

    ICE Agents Warn Americans “to Brace Themselves for What’s Coming”

    (excerpt)

    On Wednesday, ICE Union president Chris Crane told PRNewswire: “Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what’s coming. This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States. Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.”

    Crane continued: “ICE and the Administration have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers. ICE worked hand-in-hand with immigrants rights groups, but excluded its own officers.”

  90. I think the best answer for Congress and for all of us is for them to work a few months of the year in D.C. and then return home to other REAL jobs so they’d understand what real people go through and have the same problems to solve. Let them be victims of all the regulations and tax burdens and be forced to take risks with their own money. Force them to have to rely upon making a profit on their own earnings rather than grow comfortable just relying on the rest of us paying for them to make our lives more miserable. Maybe then they’d be personally effected by the decisions they make inside the beltway.

  91. Lawrence Sellin:

    “Exposing Obama would reveal the depth of US Government corruption”

    “It is not now politically advantageous for either the Democrat or the Republican Party to tell the truth about Barack Obama; that he is an illegal President and very likely a felon, who has a forged birth certificate, a forged Selective Service registration and is using a Social Security Number not issued to him.
    Both parties are steadfastly protecting Obama to protect their investment in the corrupt political status quo.

    Both Democrats and Republican recognize that exposing Obama will lead to a bloodbath of revelations about their complicity to undermine the Constitution and flout the rule of law, which would jeopardize their comfortable lifestyles. The truth would generate genuine outrage among the American people.”

    Actually I think the election is a KITTY WHISKER over 100 days, but I do otherwise whole heartedly agree.

  103. William…………
    Up a little earlier than usual. Quite often I rise just before daybreak because when weather permits I enjoy taking a cup of tea and a jelly muffin out on my deck,where I sit and listen to the DEAFENING early morning SILENCE, while watching the sunrise. Of late the SILENCE lasts much longer than it used to. There is a hell of a lot less vehicles plying the roads until later. I enjoy hearing the birds chirp as they awaken,and the other natural beings which seem to abound in our neighborhood. When it is really quiet out doors I can hear most of them chattering. I have lost a bit of my upper frequency hearing, but still retain enough to still hear many of the natural perpetrators. Hope you are well.

  104. William………..
    Here is one for you. I read on Comcast news that a sunken WW2 Nazi sub was recently discovered just 70 miles off Boston harbor. It has been confirmed to be the U550. Interestingly the German sub which was captured by the US during the war is the U505 and is now on display at Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. Either the Germans had a fondness for 5s and 0s or perhaps it is all a strange quirk of circumstances.

  105. OldSalt,

    Same here. Reason I get up early as well. It’s peaceful to see the sun rise – from dark to light. Listen to birds and wilderness, smell the outdoors, no traffic (out in the woods away from main road), with my coffee. Everyone still asleep. I love it as well.

    When you drink your tea, do you hold your pinky out in English Style? Joke of course.

    Good to see ya this morning my friend.

  106. OldSalt,

    That is interesting. I remember my Grandfather talking about being on an experimental sub with the Navy. It only held 7 or 8 Sailors and traveled with a sister-sub (paired). On one particular event, they were being depth-charged by the Japanese, and destroyed their sister sub, losing all life of course. I wish I would have taped and documented his entire WWII experience in the Navy. A loss of wealthy information from a personal view.

  107. OldSalt,

    I also seen a documentary on German Subs whereby they were much, much closer on U.S. Territorial Waters than intel had initially believed. Once found one (I think it was Florida) grounded. Don’t know the type.

    It was always interesting being around both my Grandfathers. One served in the Army on the Eastern front fighting Germans, the other in the Pacific Fleet in the Navy fighter Japanese. The best of both stories from their personal perspectives.

  108. Doctor Shortage Likely to Worsen With Health Law

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/29/health/policy/too-few-doctors-in-many-us-communities.html?_r=2&partner=MYWAY&ei=5065

    My prediction is that Obama will force doctors into areas of shortages against their wills or they will get no compensation. Also people will be seeing nurse practitioners instead; the elderly “baby boomers” will be given pain pills or euthanasia instructions in order to reduce the numbers; and more “physicians” will be passed without proper training and expertise just to look like their numbers are up when they are not entitled to the name due to not being truly qualified.

  109. Coldwarvet2………..
    I read the comment you posted which contained the words of Mychal Massie. I assume that this is a SHE, so I will offer my complete agreement with EVERY WORD of what she wrote. She most eloquently said exactly what I believe, and I thank her for doing that and I thank you Coldwarvet for posting it. It is unusual to see such words coming from a Californian. Hopefully this is a harbinger of change where Californians are concerned. But as usual I will NOT HOLD MY BREATH while waiting for further evidence.

    “There is no evidence that the company itself discriminates against gays, either in hiring or firing or who it will serve or how it will treat gay people when they walk through the door,” he pointed out.

    The move is “state-sponsored discrimination based on pure ideology in expression of religious views” Dershowitz said — and that is unconstitutional.

Before I could get thru to ask the the definition of Natural Born Citizen the segment ended.
    As some of you might know, I like to use the least words to explain things and I have given a lot of thought of what has put us into this terrible situation. In one sentence – This country is in the monetary mess we are in because over the years the government has been giving us a small version of what they have been giving themselves in large doses for years to shut us up.

    German submarines lurked all up and down our East Coast,but were more heavily concentrated near the shipping routes from Boston,New York,and New Jersey,and along the navigation routes that our tankers took from the Gulf. These are the principle areas where most of the subs were detected, and engaged. It is believed that most were sent to the bottom permanently, but sometimes the records are either incomplete or simply WRONG. I personally believe that quite a few of the U boats lived to sink more of our Libery ships, and tankers. The bottom of the Atlantic in an area extending out to about 100 miles from our shores is literally LITTERED with the wreckage of cargo ships tankers,and U BOATS. Our Naval BRASS at one time thought there was over 100 u boats operating off our East coast.

    He did, I just didn’t realize in my youth and even my young adult life. While stationed on a battleship, he was a cook. Many stories during typhoons seasons whereby they would “throw” packaged wrap food to ship deck hands. In his words, “if they catch it, they eat”. Everyone was sick. He had various assignments, that being one. Funny stuff, but I can only imagine how tough it really was.

    ****************************
    THIS IS TREASON, congress is responsible for immigration policy and law, and the executive branch enforces the law. Here we have the executive branch making the law, and policy, into something they have decided to enforce, which goes against existing law.

    I would say it is time for a court order, to stop Obama from this treasonous path, of destroying our borders, our immigration policy, and enforcement techniques, not to mention his lack of eligibility, and a totally illegal presidency.

    Could anything be worse? We have an illegal alien usurper refusing to obey the law, while allowing more illegal aliens to enter this country to vote illegally, to keep the illegal alien as a usurper, so the law can continue to be ignored.

    This is what happens when the Constitution is ignored, everything spirals out of control.

    The consequences of removing the usurper now, would be less than the damage this usurper is causing for the long term.

    I know what you mean. I’m an early riser and hearing the concert of the varied bird songs in the early morning is one of the sweetest sounds. Second only to the cry of a new born baby, filling his lungs with air for the first time.

    But the sweetest sound today is the sound of a steady rain pouring life back into the parched earth. We’ve had a drought with 100+ degrees for days here and the plants and greenery are drying up. My little veggie garden is burned dry by the hot sun even though we water it almost every day. The corn crops are suffering greatly.

    The article I posted by Massie was one I received which is going viral. Feel free to pass it on …as it should be.
    Part of the reason I posted it is that I believe that, short of an armed rebellion, that there is still time for a political rebellion. Part of the problem with these elected representatives is the fact that, even in the face of overwhelming circumstantial evidence, they do not take us seriously. There is a growing concensus on the part of most patriotic Americans that, not only has a line been drawn in the sand, but that the line has now been crossed. Not Obama so much, but by our elected representatives.
    I take the pulse, daily, of the voting public through both internet news and reputable and realistic polling. I get the impression lately, that a tipping point is either fast approaching or has already been reached on this issue.
    This eligibility issue has now become “focal” as, I’m sure you are aware, it represents the very core of our legal system, and the fact that it has effectively been hijacked by what is evidenced as a criminal conspiracy on the part of our elected representatives.. the very thought of which is so insane that there are many who refuse to accept it. The other phenomenon I have noticed is that, as long as this has been an issue, how many are still unaware, or only marginally aware of it. This, I believe, reflects a limiting factor of the internet.

  124. Some day when we all look back and our idiot brethren co-citizens who keep promoting Obama and all of his trapping will say “I sure wish there would have been some signs”…just like they said back in the Nazi era.

    In fact, there have been “signs” every step of the way.

I was somewhat shocked, not believing what i was seeing. I think the intention of the ad was to get Obama off the ballots in every State and have the dems replace him with another candidate. It said they needed so many signers on a petition to get this done. I couldn’t get the name of the group sponsoring the ad, but they posted a telephone number to call to sign the petition.

    *************************************************
    Excellent observations, Bob. You cannot violate one part of the Constitution without also disregarding other parts. Our cherished Bill of Rights means little or nothing to those who would chip and tear away at other parts, e.g., the separation of powers, obligations of Commander-in-Chief, eligibility required for President and Vice-President, etc., etc.

    I agree wholeheartedly that this business of “waiting” to do something is more dangerous than acting now. Every moment this usurper is in office untold damage is being done – irreparable damage. Congress is playing a game of Russian roulette (no pun intended).

    I don’t know if you know exactly what happens to a ship which is for some reason taken past it’s normal stabile range. It capsizes, and/or rolls. Sometimes staying upside down until it sinks,or sometimes when a ship rolls it will continue the roll from sheer momentum and right itself once again. Most of the time they remain inverted until they sink. Most of the occupants on board die within minutes of the rollover. Engineers are usually instantly killed by fire flarebacks as water comes down the uptakes. But what I am implying by this anaology is that I believe that there will be a MASS TIPPING POINT and the ENTIRE LIBERAL LEFT will become instant casualties of the INITIAL ROLLOVER OF THEIR UTOPIAN SHIP (which possessed NO STABILISING FACTORS to begin with). They only have their INCESSANT VERBAL FECES as ballast. Unfortunately the latter is ONLY HOT AIR and HAS NO SPECIFIC weight value.

    Hi Cabby
    This ad is sponsored by The Consevative Majority Fund based in Arlington, Virginia and reputed to be backed by big money there. I understand they are sponsoring yet another ad concerning the fact that bo is, in fact, a Muslim, and the dangers of that concerning national security.

  131. Coldwarvet2…………
    While I concur with nearly everything that you post I will disagree with you on the internet having a LIMITING EFFECT. I personally look upon the internet as a medium in which the truth is often WELL INTERMIXED with outright FANTASY, LIES,and PLAIN BS. It is up to the person visiting the internet to extract whatever information which he/she believes is the truth. I would though hasten to add that the only limiting factor would be the intelligence quotient of the person reading an alleged internet presentation.

  132. coldwarvet2

    A little more info on the ad…
    The person behind the ad, and the one who owns Conservative Majority Fund, is a fellow by the name of Larry Ward. He is a Dick Morris protege and worked for the Bill Clinton Campaign earlier as his campaign advisor….connect the dots?

    Interesting that its’ “prior to election”….I would think such “unrest” should occur by the thugs “after” the election if it doesn’t go their way. Then again, there could be the generated prior unrest IF it looks like Zero is going to lose in order to postpone election or control via martial law.

  135. coldwarvet2

    On point with this ad is the fact that there is a lot of negativity not concerning the content so much but, rather the difficuly in understanding the person presented in the ad. I could see that if a person were familiar with the issue, it is not too difficult to keep up with, but if that were not the situation, then it becomes difficult. Ward is a really smart guy when it comes to this kind of thing, so I assume there is some hidden motive behind the method of this presentation. Perhaps to cause a person to focus on the presentation? Can’t say…

    When Wallace asked whether the Second Amendment permitted even weapons that could fire hundreds of rounds in a minute, Scalia paused.

    “We’ll see,” Scalia responded. “Obviously, the amendment does not apply to arms that cannot be hand-carried. It’s ‘to keep and bear,’ so it doesn’t apply to cannons. But I suppose there are hand-held rocket launchers that can bring down airplanes, that will have to be decided.”

    As a textualist known for basing his jurisprudence strictly on the Constitution’s words, rather than attempts to divine the document’s intent, Scalia said he would have to consider the issue “very carefully.”

    “My starting point and probably my ending point will be what limitations are within the understood limitations that the society had at the time,” Scalia said. “They had some limitations on the nature of arms that could be bought. So we’ll see what those limitations are as applied to modern weapons.”

    In Watergate it was Nixon covering up his involvement, in obstruction of justice. In Obamagate it is the news media covering up their involvement, in fraud, and obstruction of justice. At stake is the Presidency of the United States. It’s not hard to see why they insist Obama is legitimate, their asses are on the line, if the truth is known.

  140. Why Obama Has No Intention of Losing This November
    July, 27, 2012 — nicedeb

    I have to confess I have a nagging fear about the upcoming election. Even though all indications point to Romney winning in November, I worry that the usurper currently in office has no intention of leaving and will be manipulating events to keep himself in place. Whether through dirty tricks, voter fraud, a Wag the Dog scenario, civil unrest leading to martial law, or a combination of all of those things, Bam is planning on staying.
    Tyrants don’t go quietly.
    Obama tells his audiences that he’s not through transforming the nation into…..whatever it is that he’s trying to turn it into. But beyond that, there is another powerful motive for him to cling to power.
    Think about it. If Mitt manages to triumph in November – if we are able to cleanse the executive branch of the filthy commies who have taken root there, the aftermath will look a lot worse than it did when the Clintonistas left in 2001. That flurry of last minute pardons by the outgoing Clinton ( aided by Holder), the vandalism to the White House by outgoing staffers as well as the the missing White House artifacts pale in comparison to what we would see in the wake of an Obami expulsion.
    The slimy residue that will be left behind by this current crew will result in not only massive scandals but possibly prison terms when the extent of the treachery becomes known.
    The only thing that protects them now, is the firewall provided by Obama’s thoroughly corrupt and compromised Justice Dept. With Holder no longer there to protect him, things could go very badly for Obama and co.
    Do you think Obama’s looking forward to no longer being able to assert executive privilege to protect himself and his fellow partners in crime?
    The “Fast and Furious” gun-running fiasco which led to the assertion of executive privilege by Obama is only the tip of the iceberg.
    There is also the question of the horrendous White House national security leaks, that we know came from Obama’s inner circle.
    Not to mention the Solyndra/Green energy boondoggle of which even the cautious Romney campaign is making an issue.

    And the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the State Dept and the White House.

    That is if anyone would have the guts to clean up!

    Starla,

    Am I misunderstanding your comments? It appears that you are stating Unalienable and Inalienable are the same thing. Did I incorrectly asses your statements? Obama and the Progressives believe they are both the same and interchangeable.

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    William you ask, “It appears that you are stating Unalienable and Inalienable are the same thing. Did I incorrectly assess your statements?”

    My answer: To answer your question William, yes you are misunderstanding my comments, and you did assess my comments and my views incorrectly.

    For example, I did not say in writing here or anywhere the words “unalienable and inalienable mean the same thing,” or that those terms can be used as interchangeable terms that have the same meaning. I did not write or express this idea in writing here anywhere so I don’t know where you are getting this idea.

    Can you show me in writing where I said the words that “unalienable and inalienable mean the same thing?”

    Can you show me where I wrote the terms unalienable and inalienable can be used as interchangeable terms that have the same meanings, the same legal definitions, the same legal theories, the same legal applications in life; and the same practical applications in life that will produce the same actions in life?

    You assume I have certain views, beliefs and thoughts I do not have. You have assumptions about my views and beliefs I do not write, and that I do not have or hold.

    Williams, you also assume certain things about my character, my belief systems and morals and me that are not based on truth, on any facts or on reality, but are based only on your personal false assumptions.

  147. Grant Information

    I am sharing a few videos here and other places in the possibility someone may be interested in seeing this information about grants. Perhaps they can use this grant information and apply for grants that can help them to start their own business, invest in real estate, pay for college, buy business equipment, do repairs to their home(s) or business, etc:

    A Few Videos About Grants On YouTube:

    (1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KC7bEFt0FZE&feature=player_embedded

    (2) How To Get A Government Grant From The Government Money Club

    (3) Secrets To Applying For Government Grants

    Uploaded by govgrantsource on Oct 14, 2009

    People can learn how to write and apply for grants here:

    http://www.GovernmentGrantSource.net ;

    “Government grants are one of those things that everyone talks about and virtually no one pursues. Whether you are looking to get funding for a non-profit organization, to launch a business or simply to make home repairs, the process is much the same.

    Unfortunately, the majority of people just don’t understand how to apply for government grants. At first glance, it seems hopelessly complicated, and the vast majority of those considering applying will never even attempt it.

    Others will try once, but without the right proposal, they will probably lose out to someone who is more competitive and who did their homework on how to get a grant.”

    http://www.GovernmentGrantSource.net – offers video and audio tutorials, as well as sample grant proposals for you to look at. If you need to apply for government grants, then this is where you’ll learn exactly how to do it, step by step.”
