At the center of the problem, the senator continues, driving this out-of-control spending and borrowing fiscal Titanic are entitlements â€“ â€śSocial Security, health entitlements, and the resulting interest costs on the swelling national debt.â€ť
â€śWe have your back,â€ť President Obama told Israelis when he visited that embattled country recently. Way back, apparently. Mr. Obamaâ€™s administration famously claimed to â€ślead from behindâ€ť in overthrowing Libyaâ€™s strongman, Khaddafi. Young Sergeant Benjamin Anthony spoke to the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Washington Summit this week. Sgt. Anthony described aÂ differentÂ vision of leadership.Â AhalaiÂ he gave as the Hebrew word for â€śafter me.â€ť Officers in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) they shouldÂ lead from the front.Â That used to be Americaâ€™s idea of leadership, too.
In a display that would have been unthinkable not that long, a few days ago our First Lady admitted and discussed on national television how the Obamas do not bother going to church. We now have our nation's first First Family to not to attend regular worship services.Â Did you ever think you'd see the day? A post-Christian United States White House. A president who publicly worships and attends services? Seemingly we're past that now. Sort of like Europe. And apparently the only services the Obamas are or were interested in attending are those in which America is denigrated, dissed, demeaned and damned.
The AP news service is quick to highlight the deaths of Palestinians, especially the admittedly tragic deaths of children (who are often used by Hamas as human shields). The same â€śnewsâ€ť services fail to point out that the reasons there are not more Israeli deaths, from rockets launched into Israel, are the Israeli shelters and Iron Dome intercepts. Somehow, the writers also forget to mention that if there were no rockets being fired and terrorist attacks on Israeli citizens in the first place, there would be an abiding peace in the region.
To hear educators and pundits talk youâ€™d think we are at the dawn of a change in public school education that will herald a new commitment to providing students and parents an education worthy of the tax dollars spent. Yet, until such time that teachersâ€™ unions stop being impediments to success, our education system will not deliver the results we need to prepare todayâ€™s students for tomorrowâ€™s challenges.
