NC unemployment rate rises .3 percent in August, Labor force participation rate drops .3, Poverty and food stamp usage rises, What recovery

“One of the CBO’s most intriguing estimates is that by 2017 there will be 2 million fewer full-time jobs on the market than there would have been without Obamacare, and that figure could climb to 2.5 million by 2024.”…Market Watch February 4, 2014

“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

 

I have kept the readers of Citizen Wells informed of the real employment situation in the US and NC.

Despite the best Orwellian efforts of the mainstream media and politicians to paint a brighter picture of employment I have tried my best to reveal the truth.

Recently we revealed that allegedly Illinois has the worst employment recovery in the nation.

“Illinois’ sluggish jobs recovery is coming at a tremendous cost. For every post-recession job created in Illinois, nearly two people have enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps.

In the recession era, the number of Illinoisans dependent on food stamps has risen by 745,000. Without adequate job creation in the state, Illinois families have had no choice but to depend upon food stamps to put bread on the table.

The Prairie State has had the worst recovery from the Great Recession of any state in the U.S. There are nearly 300,000 fewer Illinoisans working today than in January 2008, and 170,000 fewer payroll jobs.”

Is the NC recovery worse?

Ok folks, are you ready?

From the NC Labor and Economic Analysis Division.

The unemployment rate rose .3 percent to 6.8 and the labor force participation rate dropped .3 percent to 60.5.

You read the right.

The labor force participation rate in NC dropped 4.4 percent since Obama took the White House in January 2009.

And Senator Kay Hagan, who voted with Obama 96 percent of the time, continues to lie about her role in job creation.

  1. 1 in 3 people in Davidson County, just south of Greensboro, receive food assistance.

  2. Citizenwells……

    good article….I recently read somewhere that 40% of the people in America were receiving some kind of public assistance……that’s a lot of people if we have approximately 320 million mouths now here……

    I’m like you…….what recovery?

    All of the misery we are facing right now is right out of the communist handbook….”get the people totally dependent upon their government and they will accept what ever is presented to them.”

  3. To support my entry above…I just picked this up now from giveusliberty.com;
    —————————————————————————————————–
    “Barack Obama, in his own mind, is incapable of formulating scenarios in which the United States, as a capitalist-based western democracy, succeeds.

    Frank Marshall Davis was introduced to Barack Obama by his maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham ( a communist mole) , who was a close friend of the black radical Davis and saw him as a potential role model and father-figure for his grandson (?).

    Davis was also a US Communist Party member (number 47544) and became Obama’s mentor (some say his real father) in Hawaii during the 1970s, right up until Obama left for college at Occidental, which he attended on a scholarship, one most likely reserved for foreign students.

    That would explain why he roomed and associated with foreign students and, incidentally, did not registered with Selective Service.
    —————————————————————————————————-
    On top of all his communist associations…he was a faggot always on the lookout for other faggots.

  4. KILTIE……

    I left you a response in CW’s last article……

  5. LORD, that’s a high price to pay…..

  6. RMINNC……..
    Soetoro was too busy GETTING BEHIND people (particularly those who were bent over) to worry about learning capitalism……..all he cared about was smoking his DOPE,and playing “drop the soap”. Having spent NONE of his formative years in America now tells the story on him. You only need to look at Soetoro’s past to realise what he is NOW.

  7. GREETINGS FROM YOUR PRESIDENT….

    Like me like this?…It’s the REAL me.

  8. RMinNC and Old Sailor82…went back and read your responses. You’re both au courant on what is going on back in the auld sod. Scotland is a lovely place, and the Scots are nice people, bright, and usually well educated. My maiden name was Ross, and my father’s small twig of the Ross family tree all began to leave Scotland, beginning in 1916…most to Australia, and our family being the last to leave, coming to the U.S. in 1952. I’m reminded of something Andrew Carnegie has on his tombstone…something to the effect, born in Scotland, died an American. I must look that up and refresh my memory, because my sentiments are the same.

  9. Kiltie………
    I am naturally drawn to my heritage (England) but sadly as I watch the mother country seems hell bent upon destroying itself. England is steeped in a history of bravery, and a stubborness which even Hitler admitted was by far greater than he had initially believed. After half of his bombers were shot down,he decided that they would try to bring England to it’s knees using the V1 buzz bombs,as it were. When this failed Hitler tried using the V2 rockets,and he discovered that this only strengthened Englands resolve,to stay the course.In the later days of WW2 ALL OF THE UK was gladdened to see the allies drive the Supermen backwards,and literally into holes in the ground.Hitler took the cowards way out. In the final days of WW2 in Europe Hitler had become a decrepit, trembling old man,and incapable of any reasonable thought. Many believe that he was totally insane. I personally think that only INSANE PEOPLE do genocide. Again he was a COWARD. He refused to stand with his,Nazi associates, generals and admirals,in their final days on earth,and most were dispatched with a garrote about their neck.

  10. Obama virus spreading.

    “Oregon may soon have its first confirmed case of enterovirus D68, the rare strain of a common virus that has caused severe respiratory illness in children in the Midwest and other parts of the U.S. this year.

    Officials from St. Charles Bend announced Friday the hospital had treated at least two children with illness consistent with EV-D68 and had sent a sample for testing to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta to confirm the strain.”

    “There’s always a mix of enteroviruses, and the mix changes,” he said. “And so this year, for whatever reason, EV-D68 is in the mix and predominant in some locations. Why that’s the case? It’s not really defined why some have circulated and not others.”

  11. “US says no Ebola patient contact for troops in Liberia”

    “US troops heading to Liberia to help fight the Ebola epidemic will help train health workers but will have no “direct contact” with patients infected with the virus, the Pentagon said Friday.”

    How do you ensure that?

  12. Kiltie…….
    I have heard the name Ross many times throughout my life. We have a number of them here in Fort Wayne,Indiana. I done business with one of them who was in then in the appliance business. He used to talk about Scotland a lot, and it was also he who told me most of what little I know about the country. I also found the highland games to be both very interesting,and entertaining.To me it was a fresh and unusual sport…….We have a group of Scots who live amongst us even today,and are great people,just to be around,and socialise with. They have their own unique way of saying things,which I find to be both enlightening,and quite enjoyable. I think that is one reason why I enjoy chatting with RM. While he is of Irish descent he is still a Celt. I am cut from Norman cloth. Perhaps one of the several local Ross families are an arm of your family.
    Jonah is a genealogist,and was kind enough to try to look into some of my background as well, She came up with most of what I already knew,but nonetheless I found it interesting. I think that most people are naturally drawn to examining their heritage. Helps to identify who you are. Great chatting with you.
    Best regards oldsailor82

  13. CW……
    What strikes me most regarding troops being sent to Liberia, is that everybody seems to think that not being near the sufferers of EBOLA, insulates the troops. This is untrue. Just being where they once were is enough to communicate infection. I still am unable to see any logical reason for our troops to be in Liberia,unless it is being done with the hope that they all will die. While I am far from being the brightest person on earth,it is easy to see that there is no necessity for their presence in Liberia. Total nonsense.

  14. THE WHOLE WORLD’S AT ODDS ABOUT YOUR ISIS STRAGEDY

  15. OUR VISIONARY COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF HARD AT WORK….

  16. KILTIE……

    You are a nice breath of a Scottish springtime !…We enjoy having you here at CW’s. Your post add a lot to our discussions…..

    We sometimes bark at each other , but it’s only a bark, we never bite……and we ALWAYS speak our peace, whatever that may be, pro or con…..there is nothing phony or deceiving about anyone who post here…..

    Citizenwells works very hard to provide only the TRUTH on his site, and so does everyone who adds a post…your input is most welcome at any time.

    We are mostly old-timers with young minds and ideas. Most have been around the world a few times and are very concerned about the direction our beloved America is going under this Chicago style Mafia leader we currently have….I’m sure you feel the same as we do.

    In fact, the entire world should be concerned….if America goes down, freedom around the world will go down too, and darkness will set in for a long, long time.

    I am a retired army officer who has “stared down” communism in Berlin and other parts of the world to include Vietnam……Communism is not what any country should have to endure.

    I was stationed in Berlin before the Wall came down. As part of my job, I would often travel across into East Berlin ….Each time, I would get a “tail” to follow me… the communist government was a very doubting government.

    When I would cross at Check Point Charlie, it was like going into a different world…..no cars…no happy smiling faces…no businesses…..WWII bombing was still evident with the destroyed buildings…and the people dressed in dark clothing as if they were attending an Irish wake, and I guess in reality they were attending their German wake….

    I learned real fast that communism was not a way of life that I wished to live.

    As I said on my post about Scotland’s future. Every country deserves the right to chart it’s own course….and those who have to depend on another country to do that for them……well I guess that’s their business, and if they peacefully chose that course of action…so mot it be.

    But as for me, I wish to live in a country where the people of that country chooses it’s form of government.. and if I do not agree with their choice, then I have the right to relocate somewhere else…..but in the meantime, I will fight with every breath I have in my body to maintain our Republic as a Republic of the people, by the people, and for the people..

    Welcome to Citizenwells…and be it known that everyone here enjoys your post. Please do not hesitate to jump in anytime….”the water is warm and the conversation is lively” !!!

    ISIS Strategy Is to Lure US Into War
    (quote)
    While al-Qaida was being humiliated, a huge Paris conference devoted entirely to the Islamic State was convened by Secretary of State John Kerry. Like his other conferences, it failed. Obama’s “broad coalition” remains a fantasy.
     
    It’s more a coalition of the unwilling. Turkey denied us the use of its air bases. The Sunni Arab states are reluctant to do anything militarily significant. And not a single country has volunteered combat troops. Hardly a surprise, given that Obama has repeatedly ruled that out for the U.S. itself.

  21. A STERN MESSAGE TO OUR GOVERNMENT….

    The people are speaking…are you listening?

  22. CABBYAZ…

    Good afternoon friend…..

    That’s been the PLAN all along….Obey arms the Syrian rebels…they quickly defeat Assad. Then these savages swing their support behind ISIS…

    Following that, all of Iraq falls and perhaps many more weaker nations like Egypt, Lebanon, and Jorden. Then all guns will be pointed toward Israel, which has been the primary target all along…..

    This will be when “ALL HELL IS UNLEASED”…and that too is part of the PLAN.

    Then the whole damn world is in a big bunch of trouble and the nukes start flying in every direction…all because of our Muslim president who has for almost 8 years managed to pull the “wool” over our eyes…well most of the citizens eyes….certainly not yours, or mine.

    It has been the “perfect storm” brought to our doorstep by the perfect Indonesian Muslim mole, who has had as his goal all along the destruction of America…..and the rest of the world that was not Islam oriented.

    I simply don’t understand why people cannot grasp what his intentions have been. A politician can lie to me only ONCE…from then on, I do not trust anything he/ or she says.

    Obama has never told the truth. Every time he opens his mouth, a lie comes out…..How many lies must he tell before the “slow thinking” Americans get it…..how many deaths must he be responsible for before the world says NO MORE…how much more of his crap must we take before we take back our country?….

    Obama has been a “train wreck” in progress every since he said he intended to “fundamentally transform” our government, which did not need transforming in the first place…we desperately needed a president that understood what America and the American people were all about.

    Someone who respected the flag and all it stood for. A president who put the nation above his own person interest…we didn’t get anything like that. We got a low life south Chicago hustler straight off the street who knew how to promise much but provide little. He was a master at that.

    We got a self-centered, egomaniac boy/man child who’s only interest lay within making himself look good… or pleasuring himself….the first part of this that hasn’t happened yet, but the latter seems to be a daily happening.. golfing, body care, jetting all over, etc.

    We got a man and his wife (?) who spends more of the taxpayers money on one vacation than 100 families can earn in their lifetime…and this was in what our media is calling “hard times”…..and I stopped counting the vacations after about thirty.

    We got a community organizer who knew nothing, nor cared to learn anything about our government or how to be a good president…when he made mistakes and that was every time he opened his mouth and made a decision…well then he always put the blame off on someone else…..

    He has never accepted the responsibility for anything.

    Good leaders don’t do that. They accept responsibility and “the buck stops with them”…..the buck never stopped with him. It just flew right over huis head !

    The buck always seemed to stop with “Michael” who has tried to spend every last dollar in our national treasury…..then have the audacity to complain about not having more to spend, “la dos, la dos, la dos, as the French would say”, translated that means “audacity, audacity, audacity”….and then she had the nerve to recent tell the kids in Memphis, who had terminal cancer …. just how difficult her life is; she said, “it’s hard living in the White House” What a joke.

    if it’s so hard to live in the White House…M O V E. Get the hell out !!!

    Our entire government has been a joke and not one damn politician that you, or I sent to Washington has opened his mouth to stop the carnage that is going on every day….WHY?

    I am almost of the opinion that we have a ONE PARTY government and no longer have a REPUBLIC for which we stand.

    It’s as if the filth and corruption is equally distributed between both parties and neither has the nerve to expose the other…..so the ONE runs rampant and does as he damn well pleases…Constitution be damned !

    It seems like I have wandered off subject somewhat, but I get that way at times…..

    Bottom line….Obama’s a Muslim working to further the cause of radical Islam from within our government by arming the Syrian, with the approval of Congress !

    We will live to regret this stupid move….mark my words.

  23. RMinNC its because of all these people getting welfare and food stamps.They don’t care just don’t stop the freebees from coming.

  27. OBSERVER….good video

    In support for your latest post….consider this;


    According to Judicial Watch Sources, the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, Mexico. They say Intelligence officials have picked up radio chatter indicating that the groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border.”

    Earlier this week, a new English-language Al Qaeda magazine – yes these sickos actually have a magazine – released a how-to article for making car bombs that suggested targeting cities in the United States including casinos in Las Vegas, oil tankers and military colleges. The article went on to encourage lone-wolf terrorists, and implied that an attack on the United States was imminent.

    Late last week, U.S. officials confirmed that they were investigating threats on Chicago and the White House, where ISIS terrorists posed in front of a building in Chicago and in front of the White House holding messages confirming their presence inside the United States. The numerous reports that have been released this week indicate a very real threat that seem to indicated some sort of attack may be coming in the lead up to the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

    Things are getting weird around here. There does seem to be something up. It’s getting fishy, Obama wants Iraq and Syria, the American public won’t allow it. So what better way to change our minds then to let them attack us?
    —————————————————————————————————-
    If I lived in El Paso, I would feel very uncomfortable about this….even though Fort Bliss is located there, that would not prevent ISIS from attacking civilian targets right across the border…in fact, it may be exactly what ISIS is looking for…..

    Kind of an “in your face” target…..Obama also wants MARTIAL LAW, any way he can get it…and what better way of getting it?…Then our Constitution will not be worth the paper it is written on….and freedom (what little we have left) is dead forever…..

  28. A HORNETS NEST….IS NO PLACE TO STICK YOUIR PRIVATES…

    I have found posted about ISIS on the Texas border……

    “My very favorite comment came from Joe Shmoe, City by the bay, United States (15 hours ago) who said:

    “I don’t know if I’d want to go head-to-head with a crap load of heavily armed and angry Texans at the border. It would be kind of like sticking your privates into a really big hornets nest.”
    —————————————————————————————————
    Joe Shmoe, I have to agree with your assessment…an angry Texan can certainly be a very mean handful to contend with……

    and they damn sure won’t back down…

    just ask those who were at the Alamo in 1836…187 determined Texcans verses 5,000 lazy-ass Mexicans….I personally think the Texcans (that’s what they were called back in those days) took advantage of them.

    They did it too the Mexicans…they can do it to those radical goat herders…just a different time and different enemy………same results.

  29. New Survey Reveals the Department of Education’s Agenda of Dumbing Down America is Almost Complete

    September 19, 2014 By Matthew Burke

    America’s education system used to be the envy of the world. We were ranked the best in the world.

    By far.

    Then, Democrats, under Jimmy Carter, thought it would be a good idea to let federal bureaucrats ruin a great system and dumb down America into a group of useful idiots. The “masses” are so much easier to control when they’re uninformed.

    Therefore, they established the federal Department of Education in 1979, and after billions and billions of dollars wasted, education has only gotten worse. This new survey is further just one of many examples of how this bloated, unnecessary agency has been an utter and complete failure, unless you call the dumbing down of America a success.

    A new survey, sadly released this week for Constitution Day, which was September 17, reveals that the dumbing down of America has nearly been completed.

    In a national survey conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, slightly more that one-third (36%) could name all three branches of the U.S. government. Even more disappointing, 35% couldn’t name even one of the three branches.

    The survey showed that only 27% knew that it takes a two-thirds vote of the House and Senate to override a presidential veto.

    Amazingly, another finding was that 21% think a 5-4 Supreme Court decision is sent back to Congress for reconsideration.

    Most Americans also don’t know which parties control the House and Senate.

    When asked, 44% did not know (that number has skyrocketed from 27% only three years ago) which party controlled the House or Senate, 38% said the Republicans controlled the House, but 17% thought that the Democrats still held the majority.

    When asked which party controls the Senate, 38% correctly answered correctly that the Democrats were in the majority. However, 42% did not know (also up from 27% in 2011 who said they didn’t know), and 20% believed that Republicans held the majority in the U.S. Senate.

    Founding Father John Adams said that, “Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.”

    Clearly this is not being accomplished and it will get much, much worse when Common Core, affectionately referred to by this writer as “Commie Core” takes hold.

  34. THE REAL STORY OF THE PIED PIPER….
    ————————————————————————————————–

    The Disturbing True Story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin

    “When, lo! as they reached the mountain-side,
    A wondrous portal opened wide,
    As if a cavern was suddenly hollowed;
    And the Piper advanced and the children followed,
    And when all were in to the very last,
    The door in the mountain-side shut fast.”
    Robert Browning, The Pied Piper of Hamelin: A Child’s Story

    Many are familiar with the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. Few realize however, that the story is based on real events, which evolved over the years into a fairy tale made to scare children.

    For those unfamiliar with the tale, it is set in 1284 in the town of Hamelin, Lower Saxony, Germany. This town was facing a rat infestation, and a piper, dressed in a coat of many colored, bright cloth, appeared.

    This piper promised to get rid of the rats in return for a payment, to which the townspeople agreed too. Although the piper got rid of the rats by leading them away with his music, the people of Hamelin reneged on their promise.

    The furious piper left, vowing revenge. On the 26th of July of that same year, the piper returned and led the children away, never to be seen again, just as he did the rats. Nevertheless, one or three children were left behind, depending on which version is being told.

    One of these children was lame, and could not keep up, another was deaf and could not hear the music, while the third one was blind and could not see where he was going.

    The earliest known record of this story is from the town of Hamelin itself depicted in a stained glass window created for the church of Hamelin, which dates to around 1300 AD. Although it was destroyed in 1660, several written accounts have survived.

    The oldest comes from the Lueneburg manuscript (c 1440 – 50), which stated: “In the year of 1284, on the day of Saints John and Paul on June 26, by a piper, clothed in many kinds of colors, 130 children born in Hamelin were seduced, and lost at the place of execution near the koppen.”

    The supposed street where the children were last seen is today called Bungelosenstrasse (street without drums), as no one is allowed to play music or dance there. Incidentally, it is said that the rats were absent from earlier accounts, and only added to the story around the middle of the 16th century. Moreover, the stained glass window and other primary written sources do not speak of the plague of rats.

    If the children’s disappearance was not an act of revenge, then what was its cause?

    There have been numerous theories trying to explain what happened to the children of Hamelin. For instance, one theory suggests that the children died of some natural causes, and that the Pied Piper was the personification of Death. By associating the rats with the Black Death, it has been suggested that the children were victims of this plague. Yet, the Black Death was most severe in Europe between 1348 and 1350, more than half a century after the event in Hamelin.

    Another theory suggests that the children were actually sent away by their parents, due to the extreme poverty that they were living in. Yet another theory speculates that the children were participants of a doomed ‘Children’s Crusade’, and might have ended up in modern day Romania, or that the departure of Hamelin’s children is tied to the Ostsiedlung, in which a number of Germans left their homes to colonize Eastern Europe.

    One of the darker theories even proposes that the Pied Piper was actually a paedophile who crept into the town of Hamelin to abduct children during their sleep.

    Historical records suggest that the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin was a real event that took place. Nevertheless, the transmission of this story undoubtedly evolved and changed over the centuries, although to what extent is unknown, and the mystery of what really happened to those children has never been solved.

    The story also raises the question, if the Pied Piper of Hamelin was based on reality, how much truth is there in other fairy tales that we were told as children?
    —————————————————————————————————-
    So now you know the real story of the Pied Piper. any children’s stories of merry ole England were based on real life incidents…for example; Mary, Mary,Quite Contrary How Does your Garden Grow….Little Jack Horner……Hickory Dickory Dock…..and even Humpty Dumpty….

    So when you read these stories or poems to your grandchildren, please tell them the truth of the matter….if their big enough to understand.

  35. BobStrauss….
    The spirit of ISIS already lives in America,and has for nearly a decade. The future ISIS fighters are the youth gangs of America,who are made up of misfits,potential murderers,thieves,homosexuals,and illiterate punks,who were thrown out of school in the first grade. They have no idea of self respect.or respect for anybody around them. They will happily MURDER,RAPE,ROB,AND BEAT PEOPLE because in their twisted,and drugged minds there is NO REMORSE. I know it will cause innocent people who are forced to use firearms against these morons,to do a hell of a lot of soul searching. If you are FORCED to kill a STINKING A$$ED punk because he is brandishing a potentially lethal weapon against you so be it. If you hesitate to think you will already be DEAD. The punk does not have to think,because he has no moral sensability to begin with. He will kill you just for sport. You might find yourself having to kill a 12 year old child because he is threatening to shoot you. Can you do it?

  36. Not to be controversial, but this, among other things, is very troublesome to me about Rick Joyner, who considers himself a modern-day prophet.

  37. Old Sailor, (8:12 pm)
    In addition, ISIS has tons of money to pay off these punks in the youth gangs of America to do their dirty work. Ghastly! That also applies to the drug cartels that will kill anyone for the right price.

  38. THE STORY OF JACK AND JILL…the long and the short of it….
    —————————————————————————————————–
    The Short Version:

    Jack and Jill, went up the hill,
    To fetch a pail of water.
    Jack fell down and cracked his crown,
    And Jill came tumbling after.
    —————————————————————————————————-
    The Long Version

    JACK and JILL,
    Went up the hill,
    To fetch a pail of water,
    Jack fell down,
    And broke his crown,
    And Jill came tumbling after.

    Then up JACK got,
    And home did trot,
    As fast as he could caper;
    DAME GILL did the job,
    To plaster his nob,
    With Vinegar and brown paper.

    Then JILL came in,
    And she did grin,
    To see JACK’S paper plaster,
    Her mother put her,
    A fools cap on,
    For laughing at Jack’s disaster.

    This made JILL pout,
    And she ran out,
    And JACK did quickly follow,
    They rode dog Ball,
    Jill got a fall,
    How Jack did laugh and hollow.

    The DAME came out,
    To know all about,
    Jill said Jack made her tumble,
    Says Jack I’ll tell,
    You how she fell,
    Then judge if she need grumble.

    DAME GILL did grin,
    As she went in,
    And Jill was plagu’d Jack, O!
    Will Goat came by,
    And made Jack cry,
    And knock’d him on his back, O!

    Now JILL did laugh,
    And JACK did cry,
    But his tears did soon abate,
    Then Jill did say,
    That they should play,
    At sea-saw a cross the gate.

    They sea-saw’d high,
    They sea-saw’d low,
    At length they both did tumble,
    We both are down,
    We both must own,
    Let neither of us grumble.

    Then the next thing,
    They made a swing,
    But JILL set up a big cry,
    For the swing gave way,
    In the midst of the play,
    And threw her into the Pigstye.

    The SOW came by,
    Says Jack I’ll try,
    If I cant ride this prancer,
    He gave a jump,
    On old sows rump,
    But she led him a droll dance Sir.

    SOW ran and squal’d,
    While JACK he bawl’d,
    And JILL join’d in the choir,
    Dog Ball being near,
    Bit sow by the ear,
    And threw Jack in the mire.

    Tho’ JACK was not hurt,
    He was all over dirt,
    I wish you had but seen him,
    And how JILL did jump,
    With him to the pump,
    And pump’d on him to clean him.

    Hearing the rout,
    DAME GILL came out,
    With a horse-whip from the door,
    She laid it on Jack,
    And poor Jill’s back,
    Until they both did roar.

    BALL held sow’s ear,
    And both in rear,
    Ran against old DAME and hither,
    That she did fall,
    Over sow and Ball,
    How Jack and Jill did twitter.

    And now all three,
    Went in to see,
    To put the place to right all,
    Which done they sup,
    Then drink a cup,
    And with you a good night all.

  45. Observer — I don’t know anything about Rick Joyner. I just did some reading on him. Well, who’s to say anyone can’t have a dream like that? I have a rabbi friend who moved from back east to a rural area in California because he had a dream of NYC being destroyed. My mother-in-law had a similar dream. In one of my Bible Code “finds” Obama’s initials BO comes up with “Tophet. In Hebrew BO means “comes.” The word associated with it in the encrypted is “Tophet BO.” Tophet is another word for Gehenna or Hell. I wondered what that could mean? “Hell comes” with Obama? Symbolic or literal? The Joyner dream explains how it could be literal.

    DROP THE BOMB …..PLEASE

  49. “RMinNC. DROP THE BOMB …..PLEASE”

    No criminal investigation takes this long without going to a grand jury if an indictment is planned. Something is very wrong, it’s either political or they don’t have what they want, or it’s political delay for maximum effect.

    I MUST AGREE WITH YOU ON THIS ONE….SOMETHING JUST DOESN’T SMELL RIGHT HERE…EXCUSES, EXCUSES SEEMS TO BE THE NAME OF THIS GAME…..

    If Arapio and Zullo have ‘the goods”, it is their sworn duty to ask for a grand jury….and its the judge’s duty to grant one…..I am almost of the opinion that this will never see daylight……

    Do you thing it may be a grand deception to keep any REAL investigation from occurring? such has happened before….

  51. More US troops in Ebola-hit Liberia: airport source

    http://news.yahoo.com/more-us-troops-ebola-hit-liberia-airport-source-192002446.html

    This is something to ponder. A commenter at the above site had this to say, and I believe that things do need to be put into perspective.
    (the math figures out, except it may be closer to 99.88% healthy for now.)

    Curt Dunning 2 hours ago

    Let’s do a little number crunching to get the real impact so far in Liberia… According to the US Census Bureau Liberia has a population of about 4,092,340. The article states 2600 have died. Presuming a 50% death rate that is 5200 infected. 5200 divided into 4,092,340 means that about 1 in 787 has caught the virus. 1% of 4092340 is 40,923. So 5200 infections is less than 1%. It’s actually a little over 1/1000th of Liberia’s population (.0012%). That means 99.99% of the population of Liberia is perfectly healthy (for now). Anyone care to crunch and post numbers for the other countries? It seems, looking at the numbers, that the actual impact is rather small so far, and not the epidemic that is being touted. False flag? Conspiracy? Distraction for the media so Obama can do other stuff without being seen?

  52. A SIMPLE WAY TO DESTROY ISIS…….

    It has been estimated that ISIS is receiving over 5 million dollars a day from the illegal sale of OIL from the fields within the areas they control……

    MONEY is critical to continue a war…weapons, and men must be bought, they can’t eat the Koran and religion goes only so far and that is only if your winning…..If MONEY controls the action…then strike at the heart of whatever controls the action….and that’s the OIL FIELDS……

    SIMPLE SOLUTION…..DESTROY THE OIL FIELDS and you destroy ISIS which will die on the vine without funds to continue the war…

    BOMB the hell out of all oil fields controlled by Islamic States…then bomb them again and again……until there’s nothing left but smoke and sand….

  53. Didn’t Saddam Hussein bomb the oil fields in Kuwait around 2001? Or did he just set them afire? As I remember it set in motion a regular holocaust of uncontrollable oil well fires, and it took the efforts of Red Adair, a noted U.S. expert, to bring them under control.

    There’s got to be a better way than bombing oil fields, it seems to me. But what do I know?

  54. OBAMA IS A MUSLIM AND THE WHOLD DAMN WORLD KNOWS IT…

  55. GEORGE WASHINGTON IS ROLLING OVER IN HIS GRAVE…

  56. CABBYAZ….good morning friend

    If bombing the oil fields is the ONLY way to rid the world of this radical Islamic scourge…then I say BOMB, and keep BOMG until there is no more ISIS or ISIL, or whatever they call themselves……

    Dropping bombs in the desert and killing a few camels will not get the job done.

    Fires can be put out….that’s an easy task compared to eliminating these crazy Islamic radicals who are “hell bent” on destroying ALL of the civilized world, cutting off heads, and setting humanity back into the 5th century.

    These murderers will keep on murdering and slaying innocent people as long as they have the means and the MONEY….you can bet on that..

    If bombing the oil fields is what it takes to rid the world of this overt threat…
    then I say B O M B, and keep bombing until there is no ISIS and no threat..

  57. CABBYAZ…..

    An ancient Arab saying goes like this;
    “You can’t kill a Lion, by stepping on it’s toes”…..I agree.

    Is it possible that America has all the loons in the world?

    I am of the opinion that the dumb American will buy anything as long as it’s “sugar coated” and wrapped nicely…..

    Official world records show the intelligent person that the world temp has not changed over one degree in any direction in the past five hundred years….

    Me thinks “thou protest to loudly” and someone is selling “wolf tickets”

    I doubt very seriously that anyone can affect what the source of temp on does, which even our smallest children knows is the SUN.,

  59. RMINNC……….
    There is another way to bring the sale of illegal oil to a halt from the world market. All we have to do is blockade the loading ports. Any tankers that try to cross the blockade will have the commanding officer arrested for aiding an enemy of the US. More than enough justification. Only need a couple of destroyers at each loading port. If they can’t sell the oil they will end up eating it. The oil has to move through the ports. If the Russians try to break the blockade,there is then justification to sink any vessel that tries to run the blockade. I seriously doubt that any foreign power will try to run the blockade,and risk the loss of a ship,or starting a war against themselves. In reality we are in a game of HIGH STAKES POKER! The other option is to scuttle vessels in close proximity to the loading ports in such a position as to make the port useless until the sunken ship is removed. Where there is a will there is a way.
    The bombing of an oilfield could generate enough smoke to cause substantial environmental risk. I remember the smoke cloud that the Kuwait fires generated. It had gathered largely at the equator and had encircled the earth. I think that the cooling we are experiencing now might well have begun with the Kuwait oilfield fires. Keep in mind that the suns rays are the warmest at a point perpendicular to to the sun’s rays ie;…. the equator. Turn off the high heat level at the equator,and you turn off about 70% of the sunlight that warms the earth’s crust……..upon which all civilisation lives. I personally think that bombing oilfields would only be an absolute LAST DITCH EFFORT. I have said it before and I will say it again……….with enough of the right kind of airpower the BASTARDS can be so decimated so quickly that no matter how much money they offer the volunteer wannabe “BROWN GORILLAS” the volunteers might decide that they don’t want to die an early death. The ISIS are now so brazen that they are in the open most of the time. Low level recon. would undoubtedly show their presence,and in what force they are. Then it is only necessary to mark their positions with either an awac or send in multiple PUFFS. Take out 500 here and another 500 there, and in a few days you will have substantially reduced their power to do much of anything. But it must be a cloudburst of bullets 24 hours a day. Remember STORMIN NORMAN used a cloudburst of BOMBS,right off the end of a conveyor belt. HE HAD IT RIGHT……….ATTACK,ATTACK,ATTACK.= TORA TORA TORA!…….but you do that from a position of overwhelming physical military strength,and not from a position of WORDTWISTING.

  60. GEORGE ORWELL WAS A GENIUS….
    Through out the day, I will enter 10 quotes from George demonstrated his ability to see into our dark future……

    QUOTE 1;
    “In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”

    Explanation;
    Though many people in the modern age have the will to ‘bury their head in the sand’ when it comes to political matters, nobody can only concern themselves with the proverbial pebble in their shoe.

    If one is successful in completely avoiding politics, at some point the effects of the political decisions they have abstained from participating in will reach their front door in force.

    More often than not, by that time the person has already lost whatever whisper of a voice his government has allowed him.
    ——————————————————————————————————
    Well said, George.

  61. RMinNC,
    Good morning to you, too, faithful Old Soldier (a term of endearment),
    I share your passion and frustration and am all for wiping them out;
    however, there is just one more problem. Their ilk is scattered throughout many other countries – Philippines, most of Africa, Indonesia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, even Mexico and the U.S. Plenty are hiding out in the islamic countries that were in the former Soviet Union, also. This is a plague that is going to be around for a long time unless God intervenes in some way to stop it.

    I would say this – Couldn’t the oil wells be sabotaged in some way to disable them other than setting them afire? That would help to dry up the huge sums of money they are receiving daily. It is going to take some “smarts” on the part of our government, and with the nitwits presently in control, brain power is in short supply.

    Check this out:

    ISIS Lashes Out at Kerry “The Uncircumcised Old Geezer” in Latest Audio Release

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/09/isis-releases-new-audio-message-by-spokesman-shaykh-muhammad-al-adnani/

  62. ……….and what did Saddam’s BADA$$ES DO…….they even tried to surrender to passing airplanes. When Saddam asked how many prisoners we had ……Schwartzkopf replied “over 100,000”, and he noticed a real wince on Saddam’s face.

  63. Old Sailor,
    Good morning to you, too, faithful one!

    You have some good ideas about blockades, etc., but we would have to be prepared for retaliation. Does our country have the political will to engage in that fight? Those of our generation would have it, but……..those calling the shots now are of a different sort, sad to say. In fact, if we carried out such blockades, etc., then knowing the caliber of ISIS (or ISIL, whichever alphabet soup you prefer) they would most likely set the wells ablaze themselves in spite. They would have no regard for the environment or innocent lives. That is what Saddam Hussein did in Kuwait. An evil, evil man. I believe we have the worst, though, usurping the highest office in the land.

  64. CabbyAZ ……….
    When you say BRAIN POWER IS IN SHORT SUPPLY, you got it exactly right,but wait a minute,because when you compound stupidity,with arrogance,and OUTRIGHT SUPPORT of our enemy by the very person who is charged with protecting us and the US interests,those who are the stupidest are those who are in close proximity to the alleged leader,seeing it every hour of the day, but do NOTHING to correct what is going on. Therein lies the MOST SERIOUS THREAT TO ALL Americans. The aforementioned people will ultimately die from drowning in a pool of their OWN MANURE, manufactured from their own anuses.

  65. CABBYAZ….
    yes my comments always give me away as an old soldier…thank you.

    If they had water wells…we could always poison them…just kidding….

    No, personally I see no other way other than bomb or put a lot of “boots on the ground” which will cost many American lives……it isn’t worth the lose of American soldiers when compared to oil…..but, their MONEY SOURCE must be destroyed, quickly, effectively and permanently..

    If that means Europe must tighten their belt on their oil consumption from these radical ISIS oil wells,…. so be it. It’s about time Europe made some meaningful donation to this effort.

    if the “CORE’ of radical Islam is in the Middle East, then it must be attack where it is, and in the most efficient force and speedy means available…….

    Perhaps if radial Islam is wiped out there, Muslims in other countries will “get the message” and leave the rest of the world at peace.

  66. CabbyAZ……..
    John Kennedy successfully blockaded Cuba, during the Cuban missile crisis,and successfully turned back several Soviet ships with missiles clearly visible on deck. Of course it was then John Kennedy against Nikita Kruschev,who ultimately backed down. We were then acting from a superior military strength,as well as from a superior power of WILL…….that of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. We no longer have a leader of such intensity,and havn’t had since. While I think that George Bush done what he thought was right,and Slick Willy done what he thought would be best,nobody has yet faced the same level of confrontation as did John Kennedy,wqhen he imposed the Cuban blockade. I seriously doubt that there is no longer anyone in government today who even has the fortitude to hiccup in public,let alone go face to face with the leader of the Soviet Union. I think our present leader would tuck his tail between his legs ,whine and roll over.

  67. ORWELL GENIUS CONTINUED…….

    QUOTE 2…
    “All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not doing the fighting.”

    EXPLANITION…

    Examining the nightly news in the run up to almost any military intervention anywhere in the world, will find scores of “talking heads” crying for blood to flow in the streets of some city the name of which they just learned to pronounce.

    Once the bullets start flying, those that clamored for war will still be safely on camera bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage of the carnage while their stock in Raytheon continue to climbs.
    —————————————————————————————————-
    I have always been of the firm opinion that any leader of any country who wants to put his nation at war should be required to spend some time in the front lines and get a real taste for the carnage he started……

    This would be the single most effective way to stop wars and start talks between the disputed parties……

    Thank you Mr. Orwell for supporting my position.

  68. I too once thought that when you draw a picture for those who are so unintelligent,or unable to read,would work, but I have finally changed my viewpoint,simply because,stupidity being what it is,effects those who possess it even in their emotional side. Their senses are incapable of seeing ,hearing, smelling,or feeling anything other than what they are taught,as children,after which their mentality remains the equivalent of a tiny child,filled with HATE. In reality such people are probably far better off DEAD than alive. At least they will be unable to procreate more HATE,and VIOLENCE. It must end somewhere…..sometime!

  69. CabbyAZ……..
    Retaliation,can be done in a number of ways ….it doesn’t necessarily have to be a military reprisal, but given the quality of our present leader,yes there might even be a nuclear retaliation after which it would undoubtedly no longer be our present leader in command.If he is not dispatched by the blast he would probably be arrested by the military,who would then take over the fight,and I will say now there will not be a desirable outcome. Just ONE of our nuclear subs carries enough megatons of nuclear weapons to completely eradicate all life on earth. I said MEGATONS,not KILOTONS. Whoever is stupid enough to start the nuclear war will end up being consumed by it. So if we have 50 nuclear BOOMERS at sea, the likelihood exists that there could potentially be 50 time the power necessary to end all life on earth. If enough nuclear weaponry is detonated earth will eventually become a barren unoccupied planet. NO LIFE FORMS AT ALL REMAINING ON EARTH. The atmosphere would become highly radioactive,and subsequently all life on earth will end. So would the fight be worth total anihilation. It would end as a DRAW. Nobody will win,and everybody will lose. The nuclear powers on earth also know that when somebody starts it there will be NO RETURN FROM IT.

  70. also we need to keep in mind just who it was who used the first nuclear weapons to end a war. It seems to me that it would be easier the second time around.

  71. bye bye……..Have a great day.

  72. ORWELLS’S GUNIUS CONTINUES

    QUOTE 4…

    ““War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.”

    EXPLANATION …

    This quote is pretty self-explanatory and while it may be a hard pill to swallow by some, it is certainly true.

    All it takes is a quick look at who has benefited from the recent wars waged by the United States to see Orwell’s quip spring to life.
    —————————————————————————————————–
    There are two winners in any war…..and they are not the nations who actually fight the war….

    Rather they are the international bankers who support and hedge their bets by supporting both side….and the other winner is the supplier of arms and ammunitions that makes it possible to continue the killing.

    Without either the bankers money, or the munitions makers bullets,…. war would be relegated to nothing more than a backyard brawl between two unhappy leaders with knifes and sticks…and an audience from both side cheering them on.

  73. CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?????

    This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. And send it on to everyone. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities.

    Can a good Muslim be a good American?

    This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:

    Theologically – no. Because his allegiance is t o Allah, The moon god of Arabia.

    Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam. (Quran,2:256)(Koran)

    Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.

    Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

    Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.

    Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him. (Quran 4:34 )

    Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam can not co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually – no. Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ The Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99 excellent names.

    Therefore, after much study and deliberation… Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and ‘good’ Americans. Call it what you wish it’s still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.

    The religious war is bigger than we know or understand!

    Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

  74. sorry…that should be Orwell’s Quote 3….instead of 4……

  75. This is good!

  76. HAPnHAL…..good afternoon my friend….

    Your article is correct on all points…and the average intelligent American knows it…it’s the non paying “village idiots” we have in Washington that keep trying to change the course of history….

    It would be easier to “turn water into wine” than to change the mind of a radical Islamic terrorist.

  77. BOB STRAUSS….

    This criminal MUST…I repeat MUST be exposed BEFORE the November elections…this UNIVERSE SHATTERING information MUST be released NOW…….

    Otherwise Soetoro (Obama, or whatever he calls himself) will ride it out, be allowed to vacate the office he took illegal and will NEVER have to pay the price for his criminality….

    Every American and non-American (if they reside in America) comes under the same laws that you and I must abide by……

    Soetoro, or Obama, take your pick is no different than us…..if you break the law, you go to jail….

  78. ORWELL QUOTES CONTINUED…..

    QUOTE 4…

    ““The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history as the truth.”

    EXPLANATION:

    My most prized books are a collection of history books from around the world. I have an Iraqi book that recounts the glory of Saddam Hussein’s victory over the United States in 1991, even though he lost the war in only four days.

    I have books from three different nations claiming that one of their citizens was the first to fly.

    As some of the most powerful nations in the world agree to let certain facts be “forgotten,” or “changed”, the trend will only get worse.

    History is written by the victor, and the victor will never be asked if he told the truth and no one will care.
    —————————————————————————————————–
    Napoleon once said about his legacy, “history is written by the winners”. On that, he was correct.

    Little is said about any good Napoleon, as a loser, may or may not have brought to Europe….but had he won all his battles, I’m quite sure Wellington would have been painted with a much different brush

    Unless history tell both sides of a story, it is not history-it’s propaganda , and the reader has little fact to base his assessments on…

    Therefore, it is a fact that real history can be changed with the stroke of a pen, or upon the whelms of a winner, and future generations will never know the difference.

  79. ORWELL QUOTES CONTINUED….

    QUOTE 5

    ““In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

    EXPLANATION

    Even without comments on this Orwellian quote, the reader is probably picturing in his or her mind an Edward Snowden or the boy/turned girl Chelsea Manning.

    The revolutions of our distant future will not be fought with bullets and explosives, but with little bits of data traveling around the world at light-speed destroying the false narratives by which governments shackle their citizen
    —————————————————————————————————–
    In the pass fifty years, the world has seen an explosion of communications that has permitted even the most isolated and ignorant of peoples to join in world affairs.

    First the automobile came, then the airplane, then radio followed by television. Now a phone the size of a pack of cigarettes can hold enough data to match the first computers in the Pentagon….

    Lap tops, Iphones, Ipads and desktops are the rage. Children as young as three now have their own phones and have the ability to text their friends…..

    Children are not taught in school how to go to the blackboard to solve a problem…instead they browse the wide, wonderful; world of the internet for their answers……and believe everything they read.

    Should society ever have to revert back to the old way of solving problems…I doubt seriously 95% of the people could survive.

    Any EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) attack that destroys America’s grid would doom a majority of it’s citizens because they would not know how to react without their electronics to tell them.

  80. FOR THE LOVE OF A DOG…

    There is sorrow enough in the natural way
    From men and women to fill our day;
    And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
    Why do we always arrange for more?
    Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
    Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

    Buy a pup and your money will buy
    Love unflinching that cannot lie–
    Perfect passion and worship fed
    By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
    Nevertheless it is hardly fair
    To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

    When the fourteen years which Nature permits
    Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
    And the vet’s unspoken prescription runs
    To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
    Then you will find–it’s your own affair–
    But…you’ve given your heart for a dog to tear.

    When the body that lived at your single will,
    With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!);
    When the spirit that answered your every mood
    Is gone–wherever it goes–for good,
    You will discover how much you care,
    And will give your heart for the dog to tear.

    We’ve sorrow enough in the natural way,
    When it comes to burying Christian clay.
    Our loves are not given, but only lent,
    At compound interest of cent per cent.
    Though it is not always the case, I believe,
    That the longer we’ve kept ’em, the more do we grieve:
    For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
    A short-time loan is as bad as a long–
    So why in Heaven (before we are there)
    Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

  81. SPEAKING OF DOGS….

    “If you have to be on a dog team,… always strive to be the lead dog of the pack….,otherwise you’ll always and forever more have you nose up some other dogs as* ….regardless of your position, ranking or status on the team
    And always remember, ” that the scenery will never change”

    This is just my personal feeling about being on a dog team

  82. I truly do love my two canine family members…

    Reily,… a North Carolina Plott (the official state dog) Hound…a very gentle, loving and loyal old dog who dreams constantly of chasing rabbits and squirrel in her sleep.

    Rascal….a vivacious “forever young” two year old Chinese Crested Powder Puff….who lives up to his name..in all respects….who drives my wife crazy with his antics and loves to sleep cross-wise in our bed..

    Both are rescue….but I’m wondering… if I rescued them,… or if they rescued me.

    They are family and treated as such…..I would never have it any other way.

  83. Is there anyone on here besides me?

  84. Well I’m enjoying my afternoon toddy and talking to myself……If I start answering myself…then I’m in deep trouble.

  90. The Special Prosecutor in the Junk Indictment Against Rick Perry is Facing His Own Legal Problems

    Michael McCrum, Rosemary Lehmberg, and Rick Perry

    It turns out that the special prosecutor charged with going after Texas Governor Rick Perry, as the behest of belligerent drunk Democrat Rosemary Lehmberg, may be facing some legal challenges himself.

    Michael McCrum, the special prosecutor in the junk indictment against Perry, who used his legal line-item veto power to cut funding from the Public Integrity Unit, which the disgraced and embarrassing Lehmberg still heads, may be facing up to six months in prison for allegedly “deliberately” telling a witness in a manslaughter case to “get lost for awhile,” effectively keeping the witness from testifying in (ironically, considering Lehmberg’s DUI and abhorent behavior) an intoxication-manslaughter case.

    As Texas Lawyer reports:

    The D.A.’s office had alleged that McCrum, who represented the criminal defendant in the intoxication-manslaughter case, “deliberately” caused a defense witness to “evade” the state’s attempts to call her to testify. [See “Lawyer Stops Contempt Hearing, State Appeals,” Texas Lawyer, March 17, 2014, page 6.]

    “I adamantly deny I did anything wrong with respect to any witness. I vehemently deny I did anything wrong,” said McCrum, owner of McCrum Law Office in San Antonio.

    But Cliff Herberg, first assistant D.A. in Bexar County, said that his office notified the trial court about an affidavit by the witness, who said “she felt intimidated by Mr. McCrum not to appear in court.”

    Herberg said, “The court gave Mr. McCrum an opportunity to respond in writing to explain his conduct, and after reading all of that, directed us to file the motion for contempt.”

  93. ORWELL QUOTES CONTINUED….

    QUOTE 7

    ““In real life it is always the anvil that breaks the hammer…”

    EXPLANATION

    In every conflict, it is not the side that can inflict the most damage, but the side that can sustain the most damage that ultimately prevails.

    History is full of situations in which a military force “won the battle but lost the war.”
    —————————————————————————————————

    It is not always the mightiest armies who wins the final battle, but rather the side who is willing to take their battles to the last field of play, regardless of the cost.

    One only has to remember the gallant 300 Spartans who held an army of over 5,000 soldiers of Cyrus the Great….because the location of the battle was in favor of the Spartans,…. the Spartans held the invading army until finally they were betrayed by one of their own.

    Our history books are filled with situations where it seemed as though nothing could stop a force that was winning every battle they fought….a near perfect example of this was the Japanese at the beginning of America’s war with that nation.

    Things were real dicey but the Japanese outrun their ability to resupply their troops. When their supply lines broke down, the whole ball of wax imploded upon itself and Japan quickly withdrew to their mainland…..

    So things are no as they always seem and the outcome of any battle is not as it may be portrayed…

    The winner is one who will stays the course and pay the price…. and keeps his final objective utmost in mind.

  94. ORWELL QUOTE CONTINUED…

    QUOTE 8

    ““The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.”

    EXPLANATION

    Haditha. Panjwai. Maywand District. Mahmudiyah. These names probably don’t ring a bell, but it is almost a certainty that the reader is aware of the brutality that occurred in Benghazi.

    The main difference is that in the first four incidents mentioned were, those committing the acts of brutality while wearing an American flag on their shoulder.
    —————————————————————————————————-
    War is horrible and incidents happen in the heat of battle that reflect on man’s inhumanity toward man.

    However, there is never an excuse to violate the soldiers code of conduct when facing an enemy, regardless of how brutal and inhuman he may be.

    In WWII, the Germans bombed London with their “buzz bombs” and the whole world thought that was terrible, yet little was said by the civilized world when the Allied armies “fire bombed” Hamburg, Dresden, and leveled Berlin…..this was excused as a means to shorten the war.

    Neither the German’s buzz bombs against the civilian population of London, or the Allied fire bombings of the civilian population of the German cities should have been considered acceptable rules in the conduct of war.

    Quite often in war, acts are committed that cannot be accounted for and reflects on the character of a nation….both good and bad.

  95. RMinNC,
    I just came on and have enjoyed reading your posts. The Orwell quotes are like they were written today.

    Bill O’Reilly, whom I don’t particularly care for, does have a “plan” that he thinks will work re. the fight against ISIS. I can’t give all of the details (maybe it will be posted on a video) but the idea is a well-paid mercenary army of about 25,000 trained troops from a number of different countries – all under U.S. and NATO command.

    All volunteering mercenaries would have to speak English and be completely screened. His logic is based on the fact that all military spokesmen say that the present plan doesn’t have a chance of succeeding, there are not going to be enough from the Middle Eastern countries to fight, Americans are fed up with yet another war where our military would again be forced to bear the burden, and the finances for a mercenary-type of army (well-trained in ground activities) would be supplied by countries like Saudi Arabia, which does not want to lift a finger to fight but has tons of money to spend.

    He is right in claiming that this is a worldwide problem. Terrorist groups are proliferating all over the world at a rapid rate. He feels that such a fighting force that could travel wherever needed would strike fear into the jihadists.

    This could be the subject of a serious, future debate. Query: Would mercenaries come to the U.S. to put down jihadism if it got out of control here? That could be a serious problem – foreigners in a fighting force here on American soil.

  96. CABBYAZ……good evening my friend….

    You are correct in saying the ISIS problem is a worldwide problem…you are also correct in saying there will not be enough middle eastern fighters with “intestinal fortitude” to meet the challenge….so the chances a middle eastern force by itself would buckle under and fold their tents up and become good radical extremist just like ISIS.

    Your suggestion of mercenary soldiers has ONE great big problem as I see it….they will fight for whom even has the most money,… not for ideas,… or democracy… or what’s right or wrong,…. but only for money or material gain…

    To me, that is the most dangerous kind of soldier there is….because he may change sides at “the drop of a hat” or when the fortunes of war wind blows in different direction……when this happens, you then have two enemies on your hands to contend with.

    Your last question poses another real problem….a foreign force has never been permitted to fight America’s battles on American soil, and I really believe the veterans of past Americas wars would never permit such in the future……

    The reason being, once the fighting is over, there is no assurance the mercenaries would hand America back to the rightful owners ……of course the answer to that question is……NOT LIKELY.

    So we are left to fight our wars, and their wars too if ISIS is too be stopped….the quicker we understand this, the better we will be equipped to met the challenges.

    Just the thought of an old soldier

  97. ORWELL QUOTE SCONTINUED…

    QUOTE 9

    ““Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen.”

    EXPLANATION

    Everyday there is a new form of censorship or a new method of forcing people into self-censorship, and the people shrug it off because it only relates to a small minority.

    By the time the people realize their ability to express disapproval has been completely restricted, …it may be too late.
    —————————————————————————————————-
    In todays complex world, often individual restrictions arte placed against the citizen by a government who thinks they are protecting the safety of its citizens…..

    What they are really doing is taking away and chipping away at the very foundations of liberty and freedom of their citizens…..

    When a nation gets to the point they fell they must spy on every move the citizen makes, then the citizens of that nation arte very close to losing all their liberties….

    Ben Franklin once said, “when a nation restricts its citizens liberty for a little bit of security, it then has neither liberty or security”….America is dangerously close to that point now.. and it all started with 9-11 and the passing of the Patriot Act.

    Which brings me too the last and most alarming quote of Orwell……

  98. ORWELL QUOTES…THE FINAL ONE

    QUOTE 10

    “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

    EXPLANATION

    Once the people of any nation are indoctrinated with nationalistic beliefs, and the infrastructure is in place to protect them from some constantly-changing rules and regulations and there is an ever-expanding definition of an unknown enemy put in place, there will be no ability for the people to regain their liberty, regardless of their desires

    By the time all of the pieces of the puzzle are in place, not only is the opportunity to regain freedom lost, but the will to achieve freedom has also evaporated, or will come at an extremely high price.

    By then, the citizen will truly love Big Brother.
    —————————————————————————————————
    No comment or further words are necessary here. This is the final stages of liberty and freedom and the sounding of the death chant of a country.

    It will be the introduction of a form of government that is totally alien to the American way of thinking.

    God help us if we ever get to this point,… because those in charge won’t.

  99. Good night all…I have enjoyed posting my thought on Orwell and his ability to see into our future.

    Good night and God Bless.

  100. To me, that is the most dangerous kind of soldier there is….because he may change sides at “the drop of a hat” or when the fortunes of war wind blows in different direction……when this happens, you then have two enemies on your hands to contend with……..So we are left to fight our wars, and their wars too if ISIS is too be stopped….the quicker we understand this, the better we will be equipped to met the challenges.

    *************************
    RMinNC – That is exactly what I wanted you to weigh in on! Bill O’Reilly should be given credit for “thinking outside the box”, BUT I am so glad for your comments.

    I hadn’t bought into his suggested plan – just thought it was interesting. I tried to portray his arguments the way he did. You know so much more about mercenaries than I do, but what little I do know, you are exactly right about loyalty. They would be fighting for the money not for principles necessarily. They could even play both sides and betray our cause.

    If Americans don’t care enough to fight this battle and have to resort to hiring mercenaries then our country will have to pay the consequences.
    And as far as foreign troops fighting on our soil, that is a no-no absolutely. He didn’t bring up that subject. That was my humble question.
    Thanks so much!

  101. Suppose that everyone has heard that air strikes have begun in Syria about an hour ago. A coalition of five middle eastern countries are helping. – Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, and Qatar. No European countries are participating.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Do we know how these other countries are actually “helping”?? Bases?

  103. CabbyAZ……
    If Bill Oreilly is so great a warrior,it is time for him to pick up a rifle and show us how it should be done. Talking it is one thing. DOING IT IS QUITE ANOTHER. The US is full of ARMCHAIR GENERALS. That is indeed one of our problems. It is time for the armchair generals to stand up pick up a rifle and LEAD, or sit down and shut up. Now even Saul Alinsky is once again getting into the act.

  104. ……..but Europe will scream bloody murder when the Muslims within their country begin to rise up in force,and they will scream that America must save their a$$es just as we did in WW2,because they are to damned cowardly to act. French leadership GAVE their country to Hitler,and it is probable that they will now give it to the Muslims.

  105. Just learned that some other countries, like Jordan, are also flying strikes. What a can of worms for them and their populations who do not back their coordination with the U.S. against Syria.

  106. The only thing that needs to be bombed is the Kaaba and then level Mecca. Give the folks there a warning to leave. Give them time to make a qucik exit. Then bye bye Mecca. One of the Five Pillars of Islam gone. (This would require removing from office the pro-Muslim people now running the show from the White House.) Until Islamic fanaticism is destroyed we are going to have the terrorist problem. Removing one of their pillars will take the wind out of their sails. Until their ideology is destroyed, we will have the fanaticism it inspires.

  107. Dean M., (I10:32 pm)
    Splendid idea, but as you say, we would first have to remove the pro-Muslim people in the White House and related agencies. If we were able to accomplish the destruction of Mecca then would the Muslims worldwide attack America in full force? I just don’t know. When they went on their rampages during the early centuries, it took the crusaders to push them back – hand to hand combat. This is an evil curse upon all freedom-loving people. Then there’s Iran……waiting in the wings. A far more serious enemy?

  108. Old Sailor, I agree about Bill O’Reilly, whom I usually don’t like to watch. There are a lot of arm-chair military wannabes these days but don’t know the first thing about actual warfare.

  109. Observer,
    I believe that the U.S. would have to be coordinating the air strikes performed by other nations. Most of the five countries are two bit, imo, except Saudi Arabia, and it always wants someone else to do their work.

    It was announced that O would definitely not be speaking tonight. He probably wants to get the most bang for his buck by holding off for his speech before the U.N. either tomorrow or Wed.

    A few days ago Bob Beckel announced out of the blue that the Dems would have an Oct. surprise for the Repubs. There was a lot of speculation as to what that would be.

    Well, today NewsMax had an article quoting Juan Williams, who said that the surprise is going to be a rallying of Dems to get out and vote as the result of O’s stronger leadership against ISIS. He’s a Dem, so he should know.

    O is going to make a lot of this at the U.N. to rally the troops to keep the Senate. Everything this usurper does is political, and that includes timing.

    http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/juan-williams-isis-effect/2014/09/22/id/596120/?ns_mail_uid=28079592&ns_mail_job=1587065_09222014&s=al&dkt_nbr=zkinhtul

  110. CabbyAZ………
    When soldiers are fighting a battle,and one of them throws down his weapon and runs for the rear,he should be shot dead by his comrades before he can achieve his goal. Such an act is seen as the pinnacle of cowardice. In the heat of battle NO MAN CAN BE SPARED the luxury of RUNNING AWAY,because this act in effect is one rifle SILENCED. Every rifle must remain firing, simply because the more rifles firing brings greater chances of winning the battle. After Pearl Harbor we had the luxury of picking our battles, particularly those in the Pacific. but at the same time we had generals and admirals, who knew all too well what was at stake, and they saw to it that the war was prosecuted with OVERWHELMING FORCE. At the end of WW2 we had a fleet of over 16 CVA aircraft carriers alone. and the largest Navy,Army,and Marine Corpse ever assembled. We fought to wars simultaneously with the help of our allies. This was done via a concentration of air power never before seen on earth. Yet even with overwhelming airpower,lots of boots on the ground was necessary,to rout the residual enemy forces in each major battle,such as Iwo Jima,and Okinawa to name two. The tiny little so called army of ISIS is made up of a hell of a lot of people without educations,and must have leaders constantly telling them what to do and how to do it. In the case of ISIS such an illiterate mass of humanity can be easily beaten by INTELLIGENCE, and overwhelming force. ISIL or whatever they call themselves this week,is little more than a oversize gang of street punks. We fought two armies in ww2 each having over a million men in place. Allegedly ISIS is about 35,000. This sort of power can be brought to a quick grave, with OVERWHELMING force. Why now is everybody so damned afraid of a tiny pack of howling lunatic GOATHERDERS,whose body odors can be smelled for miles. All that is necessary is to put a combination of fighting power on the ground,and provide it with a top experienced field commanders,whose orders are to do everything necessary to successfully prosecute the enemy into unconditional surrender, and you take no prisoners in the process. You cannot win battles,or wars by TWISTING WORDS. Proof of that pudding was clear when Neville Chamberlain made his infamous trip to Berlin,and came away believing he had made a deal with Hitler. har har…..finally Churchill was forced to FIX UP WHAT CHAMBERLAIN HAD SCREWED UP. I learned all of this decades ago from a DI who had walked most of the way to the Rhine from Normandy, and lived through it all. The alleged leader MUST soon turn the prosecution of ISIS over to the top brass at the Pentagon,or he will face another Army of WE THE PEOPLE. I am sure that RMINNC knows exactly what I am saying,….he has been there and done it.

  111. cabbyaz and all Armchair Generals,

    “Bill O’Reilly working plan to fight ISIS…a well paid mercenary
    army of 25,000 troops.”

    That’s basically what I posted a week ago…a funded Guerrilla warfare program and to put a BOUNTY on every head or scalp that is turned in…i.e., $500 per head, $700 per head and hood and $250 per scalp.

    We also need to insist that the Saudi’s, Iranians and Syrians
    pony-up and fund the guerrilla mercenary program.

    my 2 cents

  112. CabbyAZ ……
    No matter what the LIBERALS try when HEADS are rolling in GOATLAND the people of America will get madder,and madder…..particularly when it is American heads that are being severed. Soon they will NO LONGER be able to suppress their anger,and much of it will be vented upon LIBERALS…and it will quickly become open season on liberals……..possibly in more ways than one. One ill directed person jumping over the WACKEY HOUSE FENCE doesn’t account for much,but when a million people descend upon the wackey house,it will be overrun,and in all probability the largest portion of the Soetoro GUARDS,will be neutralised EARLY on as well. The pot is boiling and it won’t take much more to cause it to boil over. When the people of America get POd enough there could be a MASS movement of highly incensed armed people moving EAST from everywhere in America,and no legal or physical force on earth will stop them,until the problem has been rectified. It will be a very sad time in America if this doesn’t happen. The October surprise might end up being one big surprise for the WORDSMITHS,who will end up trying to hide. Already people like Mzzzzzzzzzzzz.FINE STINE are WHINING. If Bob Beckel,and” WHAT” Williams want to be really effective let each pick up a rifle and answer the call to arms……much more constructive than their incessant oratories. I wish both would take a permanent vacation from Fox.Basically I only watch Fox in the AM,and when either Megyn,or Judge Jeanine is on anyway…..even they are beginning to sound as though they are being CONTROLLED.

  113. HapnHal……..
    Great thought…….I call it INCENTIVE. har har.

  114. HapnHal………
    Do you think that Oreilly will pick up a rifle and lead the 25,000 man force. Here is another novel way of defeating ISIS……chase about a thousand nanny goats into the isis bivouac, and when they are all preoccupied with getting it on with the nanny goats,about 4 puffs appear overhead and all of the GOATHERDERS receive a ONE WAY dispatch to allah’s doorstep.

  115. HapnHal……..
    Have you ever heard of General Chennault’s Flying Tigers? Each mercenary pilot received a cash payment for every Japanese plane he destroyed. This was paid by Chang Kei Shek himself. Early into WW2 the Flying Tigers had already made an impressive kill ratio for themselves. The infamous Pappy Boynton got his start in the same group and later commanded a group in the Solomon Islands. There was also a television show about the errant group who were referred to as the BLACKSHEEP SQUADRON. Before his tenure ended Boynton had molded the alleged blacksheep into a crack force of pilots and each was assigned to a Vought Corsair F4U. They had a very impressive kill ratio.

  116. ………..but they alone did not win the war,they only contributed to the high losses for the enemy,which served to drain the enemy’s raw materials resources at a high rate….not to mention the equally high rate draining of human resources. Japan could not have fought the war much longer,but it was a known fact that the home guard would have killed thousands of US soldiers if there was an invasion…….hence the option for the two nuclear bombs which brought the war in the Pacific to an abrupt end, and undoubtedly saved the lives of countless US soldiers.

  117. BYE BYE all..have a great day.
