No! Thatâ€™s the headline on an editorial inâ€”can you believe?â€”the Washington Post! It gets better. The Post flays President Obamaâ€™s rationale for lifting the embargo on Cuba (the incoming GOP Congress will have something to say about this) and it dissects the Presidentâ€™s White House statement.
When former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) ran for President in 2004, he liked to joke that his campaign was pitched to â€śthe Democratic wing of the Democratic Party.â€ť It was a jab at his rivals, whom he charged with being too cozy with Wall Street, too popular in corporate boardrooms. Long before there was an Occupy Wall Street movement, there was Howard Dean.
As if that wasn't embarrassing enough, a source leaked to Fox News copies of Obama's unconstitutional 10-point plan to grant amnesty to 4.5 million illegal immigrants through executive order, which is supposed to be announced this week. After reading just what he has in mind, it's clear Gruber isn't the only one who thinks we're stupid.
We donâ€™t have to look far to â€śimagineâ€ť that dystopia. International activist Masha Gessen has given us a stark vision of what such a society without marriage means. Here, thanks toÂ National Review Onlineâ€™sÂ Ian Tuttle, is the true goal of the marriage-enders. Gessen told a panel in Australia what she and her fellow radicals seek:
State Department Spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, hastened to disavow the quote, without divulging who said it. Jeffrey Goldberg is the go-to writer whom this administration relies upon to get its message out. Goldberg, seasoned and serious, is nonetheless a faithful adherent of the Obama administrationâ€™s view that it is Israeli intransigence that is to blame for lack of progress toward a Middle East peace settlement.
In Houston, Texas, we have seen a bizarre twist on traditional Civil Rights play out. The Mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, has been waging an uncivil war on people who oppose the far-reachingÂ homosexual rights ordinance she powered through the City Council. That ordinance was widely criticized by Houston lay people and pastors, It would endanger protected Civil Rights already covered by the First Amendment, i.e., freedomÂ ofÂ religion, critics of Mayor Parkerâ€™s ordinance said.
Buried inside of the 20,000 pages of the Obamacare monstrosity are a few paragraphs which could create a multi-billion dollar industry in the American healthcare sector. Known as "biosimilars," the law allowed for the production of complex drugs which are medically equivalent versions of biologics (drugs derived from living organisms), and can treat deadly diseases ranging from Alzheimer's, AIDS, and rheumatoid arthritis.
An incident in suburban Maryland occurred this week that should serve as a wake-up call to all concerned mothers (and dads).Â An Anne Arundel County, Maryland, school bus was stolen by two drunken prankstersÂ who said they were looking for cigarette money. Bus 874 was trashed and smashed up and left in the woods in Davidsonville. Local moms are incensedâ€”and they should be. How can we know that these people would not have driven around picking up special needs kids? For them the bus would have seemed a safe and welcoming sight. How could anyone gain access to a school bus parking lot under cover of darkness and make off with a bright yellow vehicle without being stopped at locked gates?
Recent veterans face a disproportionately high unemployment rate. According to the Department of Labor, about nine percent of servicemen and women who have served or enlisted since 2001, are unemployed. The unemployment rate for the general population is about four points lower. Additionally, recently retired military encounter obstacles that civilians can barely comprehend such as PTSD and bureaucratic red tape that forces qualified applicants to be re-certified for certain civilian jobs
