Check out the comments.
If you're a soldier, you will get paid. This is fearmongering, what Obama does best. Same goes for scaring Social Security/Medicare recipients.
The fact that a general would "just follow orders" and obey Obama, and not know better in this particular case - well - why not just walk out. Soldiers are endangered species - they have given their oath to the country, but not the President. Better read the founding documents, people.
And don't let the bogey man scare you.
Keep sending those jobs overseas, Barry. You're gonna lose yours, too.
Please leave a comment at the link...I suggested that they all be randomly tested for drugs!
And it's against the First Amendment - chalk can be washed away by rain or soap and water.
Give someone a job. You stupid idiots!
As you go through your life, suffer loss, trauma, and are a dog lover, you know that your world is made bearable by the love of your dog (or other pet companion). Service dogs are heroes to those that have them, and I am so happy to see they are being used for ptsd. I have a friend who suffers from it; he spent three tours in Iraq and has come home a different man. Coming from a family with many pets all the time, he adopted sibling Great Pyrenees when he came home who keep him "well". One of them wakes him from his night terrors and lies against him at night. No one trained him. He just "knows".
Good dogs doing good.
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."
"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."
The Obituary follows:
Born 1776, Died 2012
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2McCain: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.
Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached
the "governmental dependency" phase.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal's - and they vote - then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.
If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom..
This is truly scary! Of course we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic . Someone should point this out to Obama.
Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution. There couldn't be more at stake than on November, 2012.
If you are as concerned as I am, pass this along.
This is enough to make you gag.

He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN. This is about as clear and easy
to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or
democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly
on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility
for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It's a short but good read. Worth
the time. Worth remembering!
545 vs. 300,000,000 People - By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then
campaign against them. Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the
Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high
taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote
on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme
Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million
are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic
problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because
that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty
to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal
authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one
cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The
politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the
legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that
what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an
excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up
and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a
budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representativesf or originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, or originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted --
by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable
directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise
the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ...
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the
people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire
and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to
regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied
mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what
they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

I, working under a wildlife rehabber's license in CA years ago, took my fledgling raven on a houseboat vacation on the Sacramento delta. He learned to fly inside the houseboat - from table to the bread stowed on top of the refrigerator across from him. We took the dog, too.
On that trip, Max sat on the back seat with my son; the raven in his cage (Orville), wasn't happy, to he sat on my shoulder for the rest of the drive - there and back. I took my hibernating desert tortoise (fully licensed in the state of CA) to New York when my mother was ill. He traveled in my oversized handbag and never knew the difference. He woke up in the spring.
We always took one or two dogs. Sometimes 3 or 4. Even in a tent! What's the deal with the first dog? I don't think I'd like to be Bo. I think Holly, my Australian shepherd, old and still beautiful, is a happier girl. Bet Bo never gets a visit in the Oval Office.
Isn't the handler involved with Barry in another way? I seem to remember that name...
Bo's Vacation in Maine
I guess since they had to swallow their pride and use the Gulfstream there just wasn't enough room for the dog and one other person on Air Force One.
Did you know that President Barack Hussein Obama flew Bo, their dog, in on a separate smaller jet to Maine for their vacation? I wonder if that sets well with all the unemployed, hurting, U S citizens who can't afford food, but we can pay for this. The above is true. I Googled "Bo the dog flying to Maine" and got 76,700 references verifying this. One of them follows:
Michelle Malkin: Just Plane Crazy: Obama’s Dog Flies to Vacation on Separate Jet Doug Powers: The Obamas arrived at their vacation spot in Maine, and the local paper, the Morning Sentinel, described the scene:
The president was the first to walk onto the tarmac, dressed casually in a pale blue Oxford shirt and khakis. A few minutes later, the first lady, dressed in black caprice, a tank-top and sandals, walked onto the runway. Shortly afterward, Malia and Sasha joined their parents. Baldacci and his wife, Karen, presented the family with gift bags full of Maine-made goodies, including baskets made by the Passamaquoddy Tribe, popcorn from Little Lad’s Bakery in East Corinth, iconic L.L. Bean bags, University of Maine ice hockey hats, and an assortment of other Maine foods and books.
Karen Baldacci said the bags for Malia and Sasha contained one loon toy and one chickadee toy that sound their natural calls. Arriving in a small jet before the Obama’s was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U S Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.
The president who said the rest of us are going to have to sacrifice to get out of these hard economic times let his dog fly on his own plane? Not enough room on Air Force One (a Gulfstream on this trip) for a Portuguese water dog and Reggie Love?
My dog saw this story and wants his own jet now, too.
Oh, by the way, Mr. Love, Bo's handler, is paid $102,000 a year to take care of him. What side of the ballot will you mark in November? This man is taking the nation for every cent he can and then some.
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS? IT’S GOOD USE OF OUR MONEY, HUH?
The significance of this article is not to be ignored or underestimated. Here it is:
The Federal Reserve must be deleted from our history of financial folly.
I suggest you subscribe to it - I contacted the blog and asked how. Maybe I missed something.
But you need to read this. "Our" Federal Reserve gave our taxpayer dollars, not to benefit us, but to benefit failing banks and corporations around the world, while our people are crying out and having their lives torn apart for lack of jobs.
A friend called this a.m. to bring this to our attention, though I had received the paper in the mail yesterday. Just hadn't gotten around to reading all of it.
He said he's bought and fueled a bus, stocked it with survival food, gear, etc., and in about two weeks, when we start feeling the first waves of disaster, he's bugging out. He's an old geezer - even older than I, and he's grabbing his boys and families and they're out of here.
He's pretty political, and he foresees this - American troops on the ground here and TSA (who, he says will soon carry weapons), will band together, using the services of local law enforcement (remember, they are federalized and militarized now), against us. But they won't be as much a problem as those desperate for food.
Be prepared. Be careful.
The nut cases in Congress who would do us in for global governance, want it this way.
From top to bottom, our government is about ready to collapse. But good comes from chaos sometimes; I hope we are wise enough to put our Constitution to work and "git 'er done".

Grass-roots coalition to hold rally urging sheriffs to stop TSA abuses
DAYTONA BEACH - In what may be the first movement of its kind in the nation, a coalition of grass-roots liberty groups is holding a rally on Sunday outside the Florida Sheriffs Association convention in Daytona Beach. Their goal is to encourage sheriffs to enforce the Constitution and stop the Transportation Security Administration from warrantless and random searches at airport checkpoints.
According to organizers, the objective of the rally is not to protest, but rather to encourage sheriffs to uphold the Fourth Amendment, as well as Florida statutes on molestation, as they apply to TSA employees. The rally will be held on Sunday, July 31, 2011, outside of the Hilton Oceanfront Resort, 100 N Atlantic Ave, Daytona Beach, from 4-7 pm. The assembly is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring signs urging sheriffs to confront the TSA and protect Floridians' rights.
The rally is being organized and promoted by the Libertarian Party of Florida, the Campaign for Liberty, the Florida Tenth Amendment Center, Oath Keepers, the Constitution Party of Florida, Wake Up 1776, the Save America Foundation, We Are Change, Young Americans for Liberty, the Florida Republican Liberty Caucus, and several tea party and 912 organizations.
In a July 4th letter to all 67 of Florida's sheriffs, Florida Libertarian Party Chairman Adrian Wyllie wrote, "We turn to you as our last line of defense against a federal government that is usurping authority and ignoring the rule of law. If you have TSA agents within your county that are violating the law, then you must act."
The letter called on sheriffs to arrest TSA employees who violate the law.
Retired Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack, a renowned author and Constitutionalist, will be speaking at the rally. "The sheriff who keeps his oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, does not allow anyone to violate or abuse his constituents," said Mack about the rally. "Do you know what happens when your sheriff stands for what's right? Freedom!"
Organizers cite the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees all Americans the right to be secure in their persons, papers, and effects against warrantless and unreasonable searches by government. They point out that sheriffs are sworn to uphold and protect the Constitution, and that the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized sheriffs as the highest Constitutional authority within their jurisdiction. "We are simply asking the sheriffs to honor their oath and do their job" said Alex Snitker, syndicated radio talk host and 2010 U.S. Senate candidate.
The LPF has received very little response to their request to the sheriffs. "Even though they have the U.S. Constitution, the Florida Constitution, and multiple Florida statutes on their side, sheriffs seem hesitant to enforce the law," said Wyllie. He points out that their reluctance seems to be based in fear of confronting the federal government, despite their sworn duty and uphold the Constitution.
Andrew Nappi, coordinator of the Florida Tenth Amendment Center, will be one of the many speakers at the rally. "The TSA, which has become synonymous with 'Temporary Sexual Assault,' should be held accountable to the rule of law," said Nappi. "We commend the LPF for being the only political party in Florida to stand up for our civil liberties, and we are proud to stand with them."
Rally organizers contend that the TSA imaging systems, commonly known as "naked body scanners," are a violation of the Fourth Amendment, and may violate child pornography laws when used on children. They also point out that these scanners, which emit radiation, may be a health hazard, citing data that indicates a correlation between the scanners an a rapid increase in cancer rates among TSA employees. The Department of Homeland Security has denied that the scanners pose a health hazard to employees or travelers, and has refused to comply with OSHA and other regulatory standards regarding x-ray machines and radiation-emitting devices.
Organizers also object to the enhanced pat-downs performed by TSA agents on travelers who refuse to be scanned. "Not only do the enhanced pat-downs violated the Bill of Rights and Article One, Section 12 of the the Florida Constitution, they are clearly in violation of statues regarding lewd and lascivious behavior, and in some cases even felony sexual battery," said Wyllie. "The sheriffs apparently believe that if the federal government does it, then it must be lawful. That's a very dangerous fallacy."
I very much doubt Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen will attend ours in Ft. Walton tonight.

If you are reading this blog regularly, I want you to think of cancer. How it spreads. Insidiously, quietly at first, and then it explodes and changes your life forever.
We have a cancer that is exploding in our houses of Congress, in the White House as well.
It is out of control and it will cause the death of our country from government tyranny and terrorism from within our government.
We are in a freedom fight right now, this minute.
As law-abiding citizens, we eschew making scenes, protesting, changing things by ourselves. Ourselves? Our pitifully weak selves who just go to work, come home, eat dinner, play video games with the kids, kick back, watch tv? Do you realize the power of one; the power of two? The power counted exponentially and the formula mandated by the Declaration of Independence?
The Obama Train is off the track and heading for disaster at fatal speed.
You won't be saved if you hang on.
It is out of control and it's up to us to insure that Constitutional government is returned to Washington, DC.
Makes you assess the situation thoughtfully - who is the terrorist here?

WTF IS THIS CRAP, AND ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE IT?
Walnuts Are Drugs, Says FDA
Written by Michael Tennant
Thursday, 21 July 2011 10:10
Seen any walnuts in your medicine cabinet lately? According to the Food
and Drug Administration, that is precisely where you should find them.
Because Diamond Foods made truthful claims about the health benefits of
consuming walnuts that the FDA didn’t approve, it sent the company a
declaring, “Your walnut products are drugs” — and “new drugs” at that —
and, therefore, “they may not legally be marketed … in the United States
without an approved new drug application.” The agency even threatened
Diamond with “seizure” if it failed to comply.
Diamond’s transgression was to make “financial investments to educate
the public and supply them with walnuts,” as William Faloon of /Life
put it. On its website and packaging, the company stated that the
omega-3 fatty acids found in walnuts have been shown to have certain
health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and some types
of cancer. These claims, Faloon notes, are well supported by scientific
research: “/Life Extension/ has published 57 articles that describe the
health benefits of walnuts”; and “The US National Library of Medicine
database contains no fewer than 35 peer-reviewed published papers
supporting a claim that ingesting walnuts improves vascular health and
may reduce heart attack risk.”
This evidence was apparently not good enough for the FDA, which told
Diamond that its walnuts were “misbranded” because the “product bears
health claims that are not authorized by the FDA.”
The FDA’s letter continues: “We have determined that your walnut
products are promoted for conditions that cause them to be drugs because
these products are intended for use in the prevention, mitigation, and
treatment of disease.” Furthermore, the products are also “misbranded”
because they “are offered for conditions that are not amenable to
self-diagnosis and treatment by individuals who are not medical
practitioners; therefore, adequate directions for use cannot be written
so that a layperson can use these drugs safely for their intended
purposes.” Who knew you had to have directions to eat walnuts?
“The FDA’s language,” Faloon writes, “resembles that of an
out-of-control police state where tyranny [reigns] over rationality.” He
This kind of bureaucratic tyranny sends a strong signal to the food
industry not to innovate in a way that informs the public about foods
that protect against disease. While consumers increasingly reach for
healthier dietary choices, the federal government wants to deny food
companies the ability to convey findings from scientific studies about
Walnuts aren’t the only food whose health benefits the FDA has tried to
suppress. Producers of pomegranate juice and green tea, among others,
have felt the bureaucrats’ wrath whenever they have suggested that their
products are good for people.
Meanwhile, Faloon points out, foods that have little to no redeeming
value are advertised endlessly, often with dubious health claims
attached. For example, Frito-Lay is permitted to make all kinds of
claims about its fat-laden, fried products, including that Lay’s potato
chips are “heart healthy.” Faloon concludes that “the FDA obviously does
not want the public to discover that they can reduce their risk of
age-related disease by consuming healthy foods. They prefer consumers
only learn about mass-marketed garbage foods that shorten life span by
increasing degenerative disease risk.”
Faloon thinks he knows why this is the case. First, by stifling
competition from makers of more healthful alternatives, junk food
manufacturers, who he says “heavily lobb[y]” the federal government for
favorable treatment, will rake in ever greater profits. Second, by
making it less likely that Americans will consume healthful foods, big
pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers stand to gain
by selling more “expensive cardiac drugs, stents, and coronary bypass
procedures” to those made ill by their diets.
But people are starting to fight back against the FDA’s tactics. “The
makers of pomegranate juice, for example, have sued the FTC for
censoring their First Amendment right to communicate scientific
information to the public,” Faloon reports. Congress is also getting
into the act with a bill, the Free Speech About Science Act (H.R. 1364),
that, Faloon writes, “protects basic free speech rights, ends censorship
of science, and enables the natural health products community to share
peer-reviewed scientific findings with the public.”
Of course, if the Constitution were being followed as intended, none of
this would be necessary. The FDA would not exist; but if it did, as a
creation of Congress it would have no power to censor any speech
whatsoever. If companies are making false claims about their products,
the market will quickly punish them for it, and genuine fraud can be
handled through the courts. In the absence of a government agency
supposedly guaranteeing the safety of their food and drugs and the
truthfulness of producers’ claims, consumers would become more
discerning, as indeed they already are becoming despite the FDA’s
attempts to prevent the dissemination of scientific research. Besides,
as Faloon observed, “If anyone still thinks that federal agencies like
the FDA protect the public, this proclamation that healthy foods are
illegal drugs exposes the government’s sordid charade.”

AGENDA 21 - DESTROYING FARM LAND IN WESTERN WASHINGTON STATE - OBAMA, THE UN AND THE GREENIES - DESTROYING AMERICA
Mr. Slimebag in Chief wants airtime tonight.
Let's impeach him.
and THAT'S WHAT IS CALLED A DICTATOR. AMERICANS WON'T STAND FOR A DICTATOR, YOU SLIMEBAG CHICAGO BAGMAN!
WHAT AND OUTRAGEOUS STATEMENT TO COME FROM THE MOUTH OF A SO-CALLED "PRESIDENT"!
I have a feeling you stuck your big foot in your big mouth this time, Barry.
Well, why don't you look at his laundry list of crimes against the state, Steve, and pick another to pursue?
And then, at 4:20 p.m. today, I come upon this:
Obama's going to punish "Republicans" with default? What about the American people under a dictator?
Time to call him and give him hell.

Because Big Sis says so.
If the Republicans and the conservatives in Congress had half a brain, they would understand that the terrorists are within our own government. We will take care of ourselves. Defund TSA, defund Homeland Security, and leave the job to the good citizens of this country. We don't need to be pawns in the chess game of government, pitting class and race against each other. Think about it.
We are wiser than the ones we send to represent us and we are insulted.
I don't like taking medicine. Any kind. I've been pretty healthy.
So here's the link to the Google search on side effects of these drugs. I guess you have to read everything you can and make your own informed decision.
I'm asking myself as I type this - Why am I endangering my liver, for Pete's sake? Is this just Big Pharma controlling my senior years?
This is an interesting post with an interesting point of view.
I wonder how many of you share the same opinion.

Norway mourns the massacre of at least 98 victims of terror after years of presuming to be immune to terrorist attacks and to be a model for peace.
The country was shocked by the 32-year-old home-grown gunman, dressed as a policeman, who went on a rampage at a summer camp on an island and killed dozens of children and others at a conference for the youth wing of Norway’s ruling Labor party. The murderer, Anders Behring Breivik, expressed no remorse for the slaughter Friday night.
Norway is the home of the Oslo Peace Accords between the Palestinian Authority and Israel which literally exploded in Israel’s face in 2000 with the outset of the Second Intifada, also known as the Oslo War.
“Tucked away in a northern corner of Europe, Norwegians have been in the enviable position of watching others deal with mega acts of violence and even being able to pass judgment on the way others have handled acts of terrorism,” noted the non-political global travel industry website eTurboNews.
Norwegians are struggling with the mega-terrorist attack the likes of which had not been known, until Friday, in the ”Land of the Midnight Sun.” The country is in mourning, with the Norwegian flag at the country's embassy in Israel at half-mast.
More gruesome for Norwegians was the cold-blooded method of the disguised killer, who had planned the massacre for two years. He entered the day camp under the pretense of checking security after a previous bomb blast he set off in Oslo, killing seven people outside the office of the prime minister.
He reportedly told the campers, “Come over and play with me” before opening fire and indiscriminately gunning down anyone in his gun sight. The screams of children helped him located them in the darkness.
Norway also is dealing with the slow response of security forces, which did not arrive at the scene to stop the rampage until 90 minutes after it began. Police, who generally patrol streets unarmed, did not have access to a helicopter and were not able to find a boat that would take them to the scene of the horrendous crime. There is no bridge to the island.
Breivik, a right-wing extremist, wrote a 1,500-word manifesto before the attack, in which he condemned Muslim immigration. Norway also is a safe home for anti-Semitism.
Despite the attack, Norway is not about to change its principles of freedom. “I remain convinced that the belief in freedom is stronger than fear. I remain convinced in the belief of an open Norwegian democracy and society. I remain convinced in the belief in our ability to live freely and safely in our own country,’’ said King Harald V.
As a footnote here, it is difficult or illegal to own a firearm for self protection. In an exchange of emails this a.m. with a single woman who lives in Norway, she wishes for a shotgun for her home, but says they are extremely difficult to get.
He's irrelevant because he has no ideas. He has no plan. He knows nothing.
He's irrelevant because people are raging out here in the hinterland.
He's irrelevant because he's so far out of touch with us, that he is being isolated.
He's irrelevant because of this tunnel vision and because he's a communist at heart.
He's irrelevant because he degrades and claws at the Constitution daily.
He's irrelevant because we are awakening to the little story of the emperor having no clothes.
He's irrelevant because WE'RE ON TO HIM!
You connect the dots, add 1+1 and get 2, you follow the money trail and eventually you get to the truth.
IMPEACH THE SON OF A BITCH! AND IF HE ISN'T A LEGITIMATE CITIZEN, PUT HIM IN JAIL FOREVER!
I have several Chinese friends, and particularly a local one who is very frightened at what is happening here. She is an immigrant. She sees her freedoms being stripped; her children, though they are young, not as free as they were when they arrived here. The family works 24/7 and now the economy threatens their business.
Not to digress, but I have another friend from Siberia. She is old and ill now, and she escaped the Soviet Union and came here as the wife of an American serviceman. She is highly educated and has a keen interest in politics. She was a vulcanologist. She sees the United States falling to communism.
If you speak to your friends or family who escaped to America, you will find that we are rapidly caving in under this administration to the socialist/Marxist/totalitarian communist government that brave people risked their lives to reach.
Why are we letting this happen? And why do we allow presidential appointments of blatant
in-your-face men and women who have communist ties and support ideologies that are counter to our foundation?

BOEHNER FINALLY REALIZES OBAMA'S FRAUDULENT PRESIDENCY DISQUALIFIES POSSIBILITY OF LEGITIMATE DEBATE
Is this not a terrorist attack, and unconstitutional?
It may not matter to you now, but wait until it translates to the price of food!
TOURISTS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS BEWARE - YOU ARE ENTERING A POLICE STATE AND YOU CAN'T TAKE THOSE PICTURES
Do you think I'm going to take my grandkids to MY HOME TOWN, and be subject to a police state on a holiday?
Do you think I would spend one cent on anything in any place that would support policy like this?
TO THE PENTAGON: HOW CAN YOU LET THIS HAPPEN. ARE YOU "IN" ON THIS DELIBERATE WEAKENING OF AMERICAN MIGHT, TOO?
TO THE CONGRESS: WHY HAVE YOU DONE THIS TO OUR COUNTRY?
THE ENTIRE WORLD IS A TINDERBOX, AND YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO WEAKEN OUR MILITARY TO THE POINT OF LAUGHTER.
TIME TO GET A HORSE! IT'S FUN TO HAVE THEM, FUN TO DRIVE THEM, FUN TO RIDE THEM, AND THEY MAKE EXCELLENT COMPANIONS.
NO SENSE TO THAT YOU SAY?
THEN WHY AREN'T YOU FORCING HIS IMPEACHMENT BY CALLING ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AT 1-877-851-6437.
Does all of Congress take Viagra or something?
I ask you to read this article carefully, and note the liberal spin.
I am predicting there will be more of these events before the 2012 election in the USA.
Our countries which will suffer terrible loss, will be stunned and shocked and look for protection from the government - the perfect solution for bondage in one world government control.
Do I sound cold?
I am boiling with fury.
Could Norway be a set up? With a police bombing exercise, and the events staged for when the building was primarily empty, yes.
Do not let this paralyze you in fear, Norway.
This is the purpose of governments all over the world.
Personally, I am so terribly sorry for your pain and your suffering and the loss of both innocents and innocence.
Rise above this and depend on yourselves for safety.
Thanks, President Evil
You're all a bunch of traitors, liars, thieves, power-hungry freaks.
We now can feel much safer - that the churches, the synagogues and the middle class of America are spawning terrorists. But not the traveling public from middle eastern or Islamic countries who, with the help of our government destroyed lives and property on 9/11. Now WE, THE PEOPLE ARE THE SCAPEGOATS? We, who do not sacrifice our children by strapping on bombs and having demons blow them up for maximum kills? We, who cherish our families, even though they are old and incontinent, disabled! We who wear underwire bras and are "hot"? Men who may be carrying explosives in their genital areas, we who are overweight? Baptists, Lutherans, Roman Catholics, including nuns?
BUT WE DON'T PROFILE FOR MIDDLE EASTERNERS AND THOSE FROM MUSLIM COUNTRIES?
If you resist the idea that our government had NO PART in the slaughter on 9-11, then you must thoroughly go over and over and over the information from Richard Gage on his 9-11 Truth website. Watch the videos of owner Silverstein (they're here), saying that he gave the okay to "pull building 7" in a controlled demolition.
We trained those crazed Muslim pilots on American soil!
But now we are the targets of TSA and DHS?
Janet Napolitano and John Pistole terrorize the innocent traveling public every day, humiliate them by sexual assault by drones with blue gloves that are NEVER changed and can pass on a host of diseases and parasites, and condition us to be subservient to anyone wearing clothing that resembles a uniform for the coming roundups? It could happen here!
DEFUND THE TSA AND HOMELAND SECURITY. THEY DON'T KNOW ASSES FROM ELBOWS AND THE WHOLE THING IS UNCONSTITUTIONALLY BECAUSE OF THE 4TH AND 10TH AMENDMENTS.
WHO ARE THE DOMESTIC TERRORISTS HERE?

Comment from a friend:
The river is dead from Laurel, east.
Very bad news.
If you are reading this and are in Montana, please leave a report in the comments for this entry.
I guess the owner's interview on the major media channels didn't count. Silverstein admitted back them, and the videos are on Youtube, that he had the building pulled that morning - in a controlled demolition.
There is even audio of the police clearing the avenue, "They're gonna pull it."
But this doesn't surprise me. Are you surprised?
It's here from yesterday I think. Day before, maybe.
She said that we, white, middle class Americans, are most suspect for terrorism in this country.
This incident in Norway, coincidentally perpetrated on the day the explosion kills many victims in Oslo, was done BY WHITE, BLUE-EYED people.
Well, Alex Jones predicted that Europe would suffer these soft-tyranny attacks first, and then they will migrate west to the USA.
And listen to Alex Jones. He's mainstream now - not a conspiracy theorist anymore.
RON PAUL ASKS CONGRESS: IF DEBT IS THE PROBLEM WHY WOULD WE WANT $2.4 TRILLION OF THE SAME? I ADD (YOU IDIOTS!)
This is sure to creep you out.
This is modern sick science. Bizarre, unethical, damaging, nightmarish. Did you think they would stop at plants or livestock? Did you really think they would stop at in vitro fertilization, surrogate embryo implants? Fibers made with dairy cows and spiders from milk?
These scientists are too insane to describe. Every day I sit here for hours, and maybe I shouldn't, but I do. I see things that you don't, and I have to choose what to enter. But this is so dangerous. We were blessed to be delivered into an exquisite paradise that because of governments, and science is being changed into a hell.
It's time for me to take my camera and go across the street and listen to birds, and watch the fish circles, and listen to the stillness of morning.
This is just too much for me today.
This was the last straw.
Even the first notion is hideous.
Big Bitch is at it again.
Any reasonable person with half a brain knows all this. Janet DOESN'T.
Hey, Janet -
CLOSE THE DAMN BORDERS. PROFILE (ARE YOU GAGGING YET, JANET?) TRAVELERS.
AND THROW ILLEGAL ALIENS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY. DROP THEM ON ICEBERGS IN ANTARCTICA FOR GOD'S SAKE, YOU IDIOT. WITHOUT CLOTHES!
While our asshole/fraud/traitor/would-be dictator president steadily encourages the decrease of our military power and many in Congress as well.
Does anyone see the big picture here?
When we lost NASA - all those jobs for people involved in the space industry gone - we lost American brainpower, too.
Add this one to the list of impeachable offenses! He is the enemy within, trying to destroy our national safety and security from all enemies foreign and domestic.
And if you didn't know (it's here somewhere), Idaho has allowed China to develop an industrial
area which will be self-contained. Just google China in Idaho.
OUT! OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE, OBAMA AND YOUR SLIMEBAGS WHO WOULD DESTROY OUR COUNTRY, AND GET ALL FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS OFF AMERICAN SOIL.
We are in the fight for our lives and our country, our safety and our national security.
If those in the environmental movement like Al Gore, and those in our governments worldwide would stop the manufacture AND USE of GM seed, admit they are wrong about global warming and kick big agra in the butt and get them the hell out of our food supply, stop using our grains to make ethanol, which in turn destroys our gasoline engines, and quit restraining our farmers, we wouldn't have a food shortage. Am I being simplistic for thinking this way?
There was a time when the United States could help feed the world on its own!
If you are a farmer, or if you know a farmer or rancher, please leave some comments on how the USDA, the EPA and other government regulators are menacing your livelihood and prohibiting you from producing food for Americans.
I'm sending this to the blog, Farm Wars. I hope the blog owner will write something so that we can see what's happening.
Also, did you know the government is going to be adding more ethanol (it will now be 15%) to our gasoline.
