Bullies: The Problem is the Left's solution
A subject today which concerns me is bullying. When I talk to people about the subject, far too many times, it is met with a yawn. What needs to be understood is it's different today than in the past because in the past grownups were in charge of the public schools. Today the schools decisions are driven from Washington who are controlled by lobbyists who do not care about our children and a Leftist idealism which is based in a world that is not in touch with reality. Principals, teachers, Guidance Counselors, and their assistants who sought the truth, are now following mandates from bureaucrats who have agendas not solutions on their mind.
The Left has good instincts when it comes to seeing problems, they are better at it than the Right. The problem is their solutions. I have never met a group of people with such a perfect record of wrong in my life. Each and every time they find a problem they end up with a solution which has the exact opposite effect of solving it; they exacerbate it and cause the problem to grow rather than to solve it. Then they yell that they need more money to solve the problem they created.
The problem is the Left's solution
A zero tolerance policy which imposes automatic punishment for infractions of a stated rule, with the intention of eliminating undesirable conduct. Zero-tolerance policies forbid persons in positions of authority from exercising discretion or changing punishments to fit the circumstances subjectively; they are required to impose a pre-determined punishment regardless of individual culpability, extenuating circumstances, or history. This pre-determined punishment need not be severe, but it is always meted out.
Zero tolerance is the worst message we could ever send our children and, put in context, it is a small snapshot of why the Left should never be allowed to be involved in solutions to problems. Zero tolerance is saying to our children, truth doesn't matter. Heck, Hillary Clinton said it and was cast a hero after four people were murdered on her watch in Benghazi after she told a Senate select comity "what difference does it make?!"
Zero tolerance is the method by which it doesn't matter who threw the first punch or started the fight! They might as well ask, what difference does it make?! The difference only matters if truth matters. When we tell our children we don't care who started the fight we tell them we don't care about the truth, each side is equally to blame. This is just not so. There is no cycle of violence, it's absurd in the public school and it's absurd on the world stage where the world tells us the Middle East conflict is a cycle of violence. It's ridiculous and not true, one side is responding to the violence and aggression of having their innocent men, women, and children murdered while sitting in a cafe' or riding on a bus.
When one kid engages in tormenting another that is bullying and is reason enough to punish. Justice means the bully gets punished not the one who got bullied.
The other problem with zero tolerance policies is the kid being tormented doesn't want to get in trouble, he's a good kid. When we tell him or her they will get in trouble if they respond to the bully we might as well have put a target on their back. Here's a news flash too, bullies don't stop just because the teacher got involved.
One thing we know about bullies is they are cowards. Just look at Barak Obama on the world stage as he gets rolled all over the place he withdraws. At home though he has the news media to protect him and he knows the Republicans won't do anything so look at the lies and end run around the laws of the land he does. It's prima fascia evidence of bullies and the rules they live by.
The Republican party are like most kids who shut down because they don't have the confidence to call out the fouls or stare down their aggressor. When this happens the bullying intensifies and the only solution is to act with confidence and lead. The solutions to the problem are all over they just need the conviction to speak and boldly stare down their opponents in the media and across the aisle. Stop acting like victims.
In the public schools in means learning skills to develop real confidence not the fake poster type they hang in the hallways. That may mean learning self defense or take up debating, something to develop their individuality and be proud of themselves because no one picks on the confident kids.

The way the world is:
98% of the people are sheep.
1% are sheepdogs who protect the sheep.
1% are wolves who prey on the sheep.
Which group are you?
This week we celebrate Passover, the Jewish holiday which recounts the freedom from slavery. We had friends and family sit at our Seder table. The service, including dinner and desert, took four hours. A bit longer than usual but the time flew by. Four generations sat at the table, interesting because 4 is quite a significant number in Judaism as it turns out.
The service asks the 4 questions by the children. Our nephew, who is just three, memorized the first of these questions and chanted it for all who sat at the table. He was adorable! The next generation learning what G-d did for the Jewish people how he took us out of slavery, slew the evil Pharaoh of Egypt, fed us in the desert, taught us how to be free and then gave us a home land. He then commanded all future generations to tell the story of Passover so they will never forget that they were once slaves.
America was a country born from people who fled persecution and then fought for freedom from far off Kings who wished to keep the world subservient to their rule and manor of religion as they deemed fit. The people of America rejected this rule and established a nation built on the notion of free people, choosing their own destinations. A nation built from the notion wear the Federal government would be subservient to the people by rule of law and whose size and scope would be limited.
In recent years America has raised a generation who has been taught an alternate history where freedom is now depicted as slavery and laws are ignored if they don't suit the powerful. Where logic is deemed heretic by a new scientific community who uses force to stop the flow of information. Truth is silenced and the word of G-d is deemed a lie.
Today our children are taught to be slaves by a people who claims to be setting them free, funny Hitler did that too. Please, I'm not saying the Left are Hitler, yet. The question of when they turn violent when those of us who want to be free won't conform is yet to be determined. The Left has been showing their totalitarian soul to us in the way Obama's government seeks to extinguish speech if yours is not desirable to their ears through events like the IRS targeting Conservatives. In the way an executive was fired from his job because he thought marriage between a man and a woman is worth honoring and preserving.
On the college campuses where Israel is deemed evil and an apartheid state yet Islam's honor killings are protected from scrutiny and question by the very people who were supposed to be teaching us that freedom was the ability to question everything.
Day after day children come into my self defense school are recounting tales of bullying. The bullies are protected by a zone of zero tolerance. Zero tolerance means the children who follow the rules get in trouble if they protect themselves from the kids who don't care about the rules. It's the same insanity we see with the gun free zones where the killers with guns search out where they are most free to kill those who follow the rules.
How much longer do we allow the bad to prosper while the good are murdered?
As each election approaches the choices are much more clear between slavery and freedom. Half the country are choosing slavery. Half the country does not pay taxes and they choose to elect people who enslave them by taking the money from those who do pay taxes. They declare tax payers as evil and greedy for wanting to keep half of what they earned by the sweat of their brow while enslaving the next generation with just enough to live.
As November approaches and the task masters of the Left spin their lies, America is once again at the cross road, ever closer to the choice between freedom and slavery. They will choose slavery because we allowed a generation of children to be raised without telling them the history of freedom our founders fought for.

Megyn Kelly shows why she is Fox News's rising star.
I haven't laughed so much all week, thanks Mike. A hilarious interivew. Greta dismantles this guy. After this interview I would love to know if his election staff quit. Greta's takes this guy apart so easily she can't resist calling him a "piece of work."

It's a simple question: What accomplishments has Hillary Clinton which make her a better choice to be the Democrat nominee than say, a Senator Claire McCaskill?
You'd think a panel of Leftist's on MSNBC could make the case for her, wouldn't you????
Hillary 2016: What difference does make the media loves me
Hillary 2016: I am a woman, Republicans are sexist!
In the end, what difference does it make?

" To see what is in front of one's nose requires a constant struggle. "
The Totalitarian Left Revealed
The case of the Mozilla executive fired for making a private donation to support the marriage between one man and one woman in 2008 has made national headlines. No matter what side of the aisle you are on fair minded people agree that people have the right to make political donations without reprisal. It goes without saying, but for the few morons out there, I will add the disclaimer stating, so long as you did not act discriminatory in the work place.
Ben Shapiro sums up the Left's revealing, not new, soul which is control.
Freedom is secondary to the yays and nays of the governing few in this vision. Freedom is merely that which the government allows — and the government should only allow you to do the bidding of the left. If you, recognizing that sometimes people will take action with which you disagree, believe that government should stay out of people’s business, you must therefore be an advocate for discrimination and brutality. To allow Eich to work is to discriminate against gays. To allow religious businesses to reject contraceptive mandates is to push women into back alley abortions. Forget the notion of disagreeing with your opinion, but defending your right to say it — in the view of the leftist totalitarians, such a notion is inherently unworkable.
When fascism comes, it will come not with jackboots but with promises of a better world. The jackboots come later, when we’ve all been shamed into silence — when we’ve been taught that to allow that with which we disagree is to agree with it, and when we’ve accepted that the best method of preventing such disagreement is government power. We’re on the verge. All it will take is the silence of good people — people on all sides of the political aisle — who fall prey to the ultimate temptation in a republic: the temptation to force their values on others utilizing the machinery of government. We’re already more than halfway there.
Some may say this is harsh to judge the Left by the acts of a few and to them I say, you don't know jack. I could offer the case of the IRS suppression of free speech which was brought on by the President's 2011 State of the Union speech where he ridiculed and offended the Supreme Court who had to sit and endure a tantrum by POTUS about Citizens United. A case where the USSC ruled in favor of corporations political contributions, followed up by Democrats like Chuck Shumer urging the IRS to silence the Tea Party. The Left likes to claim they want to take the money out of politics, but only certain money. For example unions and lawyers do not fall under the same category as corporations under our tax code and therefore their political contributions would not effected. Since most of those contributions go to Democrat coughers the Left is silent about those 10's of billions of dollars. It's like the Left's claim that they want to "count every vote," unless you are in the military and they don't.
Kirsten Powers, a woman of the Left recounts another tactic the thought police use to silence views which deviate from the Left:
Then there is the movie about convicted abortion murdered Kermit Kosnell, Kickstarter, the nation's biggest crowd-funding site,refused to accept a film about convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell unless descriptions of his crimes were removed.
After producers Phelim McAleer and his wife, Ann McElhinney, complained publicly, embarrassed Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler claimed on Twitter that the allegation was false. Strickler released an e-mail accepting the Gosnell film, but failed to mention that it was accepted only after the filmmakers withdrew in frustration. The producers released e-mails from Kickstarter demanding that references to stabbing babies and "similar language" be removed. The "acceptance letter" came March 28, the day after the producers withdrew their proposal.
Kickstarter explained its reasoning for blocking the movie by writing, "We understand your convictions … however … our Community Guidelines outline that we encourage and enforce a culture of respect and consideration, and we ask that that language specifically be modified."
Somehow, making a movie recounting the crimes of a convicted abortion doctor is disrespectful and inconsiderate. Kickstarter would only speak off the record, but its explanations were dissembling and contradictory. That might be because Kickstarter's standards aren't exactly rigorously enforced. An album titled Incest is the Highest Form of Flattery was fine. The movie Die Sluts Die telling "the story of ... sex crazed friends ... murdered in unusual and creative ways," ditto.
What type of movie on late-term abortion do our meddling gatekeepers want? Kickstarter accepted After Tiller, a hagiography of the abortionists who took over when Wichita doctor George Tiller was murdered. The film presumably doesn't belabor the process of late-term abortion, where babies are often stabbed in the neck with scissors and the contents of their skulls suctioned out. One wouldn't want to violate Kickstarter's culture of respect and consideration. Or provide factual information.
Kickstarter, like too much of the news media, wants only one version of the late-term abortion story told. If Gosnell hadn't killed the babies outside the mothers' body and instead kept them inside as is standard procedure for the After Tiller docs, he would not have been charged with murder. He'd be the hero in a film Kickstarter would happily fund.
George Orwell said, " If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. " When truth is the enemy then all that is left is deceit.

Why the Left hates the Bible
What was the big deal about Abraham? Not Abraham Lincoln, but Abraham in the Tanach (Bible)? If you just read Genesis you may ask yourself why G-d chose to bless Abraham and his offspring for the world?
In the Midrash, which are the writings which use a method of interpreting biblical stories that goes beyond simple distillation of religious, legal, or moral teachings. The sages tell us Abraham was the first to use reason to conclude monotheism which is the embodiment of truth.
One of the most famous stories was about the day Abraham's father left Abram (before G-d lengthened his name to Abraham) to watch his idol store. Abraham took an axe and smashed all the idols except for the biggest one in the store. He put the axe in the one remaining idols hands. When his father returned and saw his store wrecked he was infuriated with Abraham and demanded to know why he had wrecked his store? Abraham told his father that the biggest idol took the axe and smashed all the idols in the store with it. His father said that was ridiculous and told Abraham the idols weren't real and, of course, that couldn't have happened. Abraham said, yes father this is true, but then why do you worship them?!
In another story, which precedes the store wrecking, a woman walks in the store to buy an idol. She asks Abraham for help in picking an idol of wisdom made yesterday. Abraham asks her how old she is? The woman says she is 60 years old. He then asks the woman why she seeks wisdom from an object made just yesterday?
In the story of Noach in Gensis it says, "Noah was a righteous man, perfect in his generations; Noah walked with G-d." (Genesis 6: 9) It tells us in (Gen. 6:5) G-d saw that wickedness of man was great upon the earth, and that every product of the thoughts of his heart was but evil always." (Not that he was upset about the environment.)
For someone who reads the text closely you will notice the subtle differences between Noah and Abraham. Noah was a righteous man in his time, but Abraham was the one G-d chose to bless the earth through.
In the story of Noah G-d (the term used to signify G-d's name for justice) said he was destroying the earth and Noah should build an arch and he, his family, and the animals would propagate the earth. Noah did as he was instructed.
Abraham's time, just 10 generations later, the earth again was filled with evil and G-d, again, using the name of justice, told Abraham he was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. However, it is here we see the first signs of why Abraham is different than Noah when he begins to bargain with G-d. He starts with asking G-d if he finds 50 righteous men would He save the world? G-d agrees to save the world if Abraham can find 50 righteous men.( Righteous is the same designation given to Noah.) The bargaining goes on and on until Abraham discovers he cannot find even 10 righteous men.
One of the many messages in these two stories is, just because you are a righteous man it does not mean you will build a better world. It is through reason we struggle .(Israel, Jacob's name; means struggle with G-d) But if we believe in G-d and follow his laws and commandments we too will be able to reach people and change hearts and minds. In other words, belief alone doesn't cut it you must question and you must use your mind in order to draw conclusions.
These messages are drowned out today by those who wish us to return to a time where we just did what we were told. If you dared to reason or question what the powerful were doing you were intimidated, shutdown and shut up. Maybe they use IRS audits, or send the FBI, ATF, OSHEA, and other branches of the government to your home and place of business when they don't like your political views. These are methods to silence you and are clues and hints to what lay beneath the surface.
Since biblical times man hasn't changed. It is only when you get to know G-d through his instruction manual (Torah the first 5 books in the bible) we learn how to navigate the world and those who try to enslave us. Hint: the ones who try to denounce and eliminate G-d from our midst are the ones who seek to hide the truth. Use your head and study His ways so you are not fooled and not made a fool of.
Please check out Noah a' la Hollywood under Must Read for more insights.

G-d = Reason
You too can be slaves as in Egypt just as the Left envisioned
It's been a few days since I've been able to log on and plug in to my blog because of the upcoming Jewish Holiday of Pesach (Passover). There is a great deal of preparation for a modern day exodus exhibition. We have guests this year who have never been to a Pesach meal and I want it to be special for them and most important I want my children (now 17 & 19) to remember what G-d did for them and the world. I want them to understand they are G-d's ambassador's and responsible for telling the story about the freeing of a nation of people from slavery and then guiding and nurturing them for 40 years in the desert until they were able to take care of themselves. It is now their job to live the life G-d taught them to live and pass it on to their young.
Passover has to be taught because if it's not, then modern day Pharaohs' will come along and enslave them. They won't tell them that is what they are doing they will promise them a better life. A life where they won't need to work hard in order to live well. A life which was robbed from them by those who are well off. They present the world as a zero sum world. A world where if you didn't get your slice of the pie it's not your fault it's because someone stole it from you.
The only way the people buy into Pharaoh's world view is if they stopped teaching their young their history and taught them, oh say, Social Studies. They allowed their public school money to be put toward, the rainbow coalition instead of math and science. They allowed their English grammar programs and classical reading assignments to be watered down with no moral stories and least of all stories which talk about the way of life between their society and others. For example, a European class system vs. an individual free society which a few good men envisioned and then a nation fought the most powerful forces on earth to have. America is the first country on planet earth who came close to the Exodus story in real life and today we are on the precipice of giving it up without a fight.
Well, some of us are not so willing to give up a fight most of the country never knew they were in. Andrew Klavan, Ben Shapiro, David Horowitz, Bill Whittle, Alfonzo Rachel, and Jeremy Boreing have a vision where you and your children will be live a life free from slavery.
There is no short cut anymore. Conservatives, through Republican party representation lost their way and gave up too much ground and now it's time to remember our roots as the rebels we are. It doesn't mean we have to pick up sticks and bats, but it does mean we have to fight because somehow we lost a war we never knew we were in.
This is a call to battle for you and your children. It's a battle which will take up nearly our entire lives to regain the ground we gave up because we didn't guard the precious gift we had. Now we must start over to wage the battle of freedom for your children so they can live a life of choice, not the false choice the Left gives you where one segment of the population works and the rest mooch off it, but a life you get to build and the fruits of those labors can be passed on to your children and grandchildren and not have the government snatch 55% of it and claim you're a stingy evil 1%'er if you don't.
A choice to live the life you make not at the teat of another's. Take the time to listen to the battle plan because for you young folk out their this is for you and your children to learn and understand because if not you and your children will be slaves to Pharaoh, Karl Marx, & Barak Obama.

Surprise: Massive Voter Fraud Found
I hope Republican's are beginning to catch on to, what we'll call, the squealing pig syndrome (SPS). The SPS is something heard throughout Democrat apparatchiks, such as, elected Democrats, their staff, talking heads, and the media (both print and TV) each time Republican's stumble over the truth.
Remember all the cries of Jim Crow, you know the Southern Democrat racist, when Republican's said they wanted people to show a driver's license in order to vote? Thank goodness there are some smart enough to ignore the bullies on the Left and dig.
North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.
- 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
- 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
- 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.
I used to live in New York before Democrats ruined it. A long standing joke was the number of dead Democrats who voted. It was so well none even Democrats joked about it. When Democrats control the apparatuses in the State you'll never discover the truth, but look what happens with a little determination and Republican control? Please folks, I have no love of today's Republican establishment, however they are far better than Democrats because the media hates them so that they can't get away with half of what Democrats can. The media does their job when Republican's are in power so it should be encouraged to vote Republican for this reason alone.

Hey Mr. President stop with your bully tactics, you don't get to decide when the debate is over
Bill Kristol has a great response to President Obama's declaration that the debate over healthcare is over. I applaud and link to it here.
However, and I don't know why it took me this long to figure this out, but this tactic has become the, go to tactic, on Left, in order to shutdown debate. This is the very tactic they use for man made global warming. It is the same tactic the President used after he was elected in 2008 when he had super majorities in both houses and declared he didn't need to talk to Republicans because, "I won".
It is the same tactic he used when he refused to talk to the Repblicans about the stimulus, remember he declared that the Republicans drove us into the ditch and therefore they should, either agree with him or shutup.
This is what bullies do and until Republicans stop letting themselves be bullied and punch back they will continue to get hammered. Even the American people sense a party lost and scared.
Start standing up to this guy, he's a bully and he needs to be called out.
I was reading one of my favorite blogs before, neo-neocon, and she asks a simple question, what are the uninsured doing about Obamacare? Yes, good question and for her answer just click on the link here. However, I have one of my own.
I want to know why no one is asking the administration how we went from 30 million to 47 million uninsured on Obama's watch? In point of fact, if we counted numbers the old fashioned way, between the 6 million who lost their insurance, due to the new healthcare mandates, and the 7 million (I'll give Obama the fake numbers) who got insurance, while remaking 1/6th of the economy and destroying the best healthcare system on the planet, we are left with 18 million people less insured on Obama's watch. And for the bargain price of $2 trillion over the next 10 years! Now that's an achievement.
New York City attacks on Jews triples in 2013
Each time reason is under attack in the world anti-Semitism is on the rise. It's no coincidence. The reason G-d chose Abraham to be his ambassador on earth is because Abraham used reason to come to the conclusion that there is only one G-d and he is invisible, all encompassing and omnipotent.
Passover is around the corner and therefore, it is perfect timing to relearn the story of today's modern Pharaohs, Progressives.
Bill O'Reilly's Straw Man
In a recent poll the American people listed Climate Change last on things they are concerned about. Enter the New York Times and NBC News scare tactics we've had to undergo over the past few days. Each time new evidence is revealed which does not favor the Leftist narrative, man is killing mother earth, we are treated to these fear mongering ploys. The problem for Left is while they're out there screaming the sky is falling the American people watch them driving around in their limos, flying around in their private jets, and air conditioning their 20,000 square foot mansions. Not the response from a group of people you'd expect if they believed the sky was falling.
Enter Bill O'Reilly who likes to be the big man, not just physically but the ONLY guy telling YOU the truth. When you think of the phrase, a legend in his own mind, Bill O'Reilly is the guy I picture. Over the past two nights he has pimped for Tesla an electric car company who he claims is a game changer. He says it clean energy and therefore it is. Move along now folks, nothing further to discuss.
The problem with Bill's assertion is we don't know the actual "carbon footprint" of electric cars and their lithium batteries. Additionally, electric cars are fueled by "electricity" which are fired up by coal plants. However none of Bill's opinion bothered me until he got to this statement: "Many Conservatives don't believe in global warming and oppose alternative energy." No we don't. Find me a Conservative who opposes alternative energy??? This is the straw man argument usually used by the Left, Obama is masterful at it. It's when you make up an argument which no one is making and then, boldly, knock it down or scold them for it. Really Bill I can tolerate your ego and your opinions but don't make stuff up about people, it's beneath you. However, fair warning you will start losing your audience with this, I know better than you attitude. Try humility on, who knows maybe it even comes in your size, large head.

Good News We Are Not Killing The Environment to the extent that 97% believed in the Scientific community.
The 3% of Scientist who have been ridiculed and accused of the most hateful statements need an apology from the Left and the environmental wackos.
It's a 3,000 page document ensuring no one reads it. It's a memo. However, some were diligent enough to read through it and here is what they found.
The latest independent peer-reviewed NIPCC scientific report found no link between human activity and climate change.
“The human impact on global climate is small, and any warming that may occur as a result of human carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions is likely to have little effect on global temperatures, the cryosphere (ice-covered areas), hydrosphere (oceans, lakes, and rivers), or weather.
Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, the subject of this Summary for Policymakers, examines the scientific research on the impacts of rising temperatures and atmospheric CO2 levels on the biological world. It finds no net harm to the global environment or to human health and often finds the opposite: net benefits to plants, including important food crops, and to animals and human health.”
The NIPCC report found that the human effect on climate change is likely to be small.
The scholarly reports produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), an international network of climate scientists sponsored by three nonprofit organizations: Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), and The Heartland Institute. Previous volumes in the Climate Change Reconsidered series were published in 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2013. Those volumes along with separate executive summaries for the second, third, and fourth reports are available for free online on this site.
Whereas the reports of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warn of a dangerous human effect on climate, NIPCC concludes the human effect is likely to be small relative to natural variability, and whatever small warming is likely to occur will produce benefits as well as costs.
Climate Change Reconsidered II consists of three parts, the two being released now and an earlier volume, subtitled Physical Science, released on September 17-18, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois USA. Additional release events took place the following weeks in Washington, DC, New York, Florida, St. Louis, England, Germany, Holland, and California. That volume can be viewed here.
lobal climate models are unable to make
accurate projections of climate even 10 years
ahead, let alone the 100-year period that has
been adopted by policy planners. The output
of such models should therefore not be used
to guide public policy formulation.
• Neither the rate nor the magnitude of the
reported late twentieth century surface warming
(1979–2000) lay outside the range of
normal natural variability, nor were they in
any way unusual compared to earlier
episodes in Earth’s climatic history.
• Solar forcing of temperature change is likely
more important than is currently recognized.
• No unambiguous evidence exists of
dangerous interference in the global climate
caused by human-related CO2 emissions. In
particular, the cryosphere is not melting at an
enhanced rate; sea-level rise is not
accelerating; and no systematic changes
have been documented in evaporation or
rainfall or in the magnitude or intensity of
extreme meteorological events.
• Any human global climate signal is so small
as to be nearly indiscernible against the
background variability of the natural climate
system. Climate change is always occurring.
• A phase of temperature stasis or cooling
has succeeded the mild warming of the
twentieth century. Similar periods of warming
and cooling due to natural variability are
certain to occur in the future irrespective of
human emissions of greenhouse gases.

Where was this voice during the Trayvon Martin case?!
I too was mad when I heard a young man of 17 was shot and killed, however after the facts slowly came out and the perpetrator was tried by a jury of us peirs, we need to respected the verdict. George Zimmerman may not be behind bars, however he lives in a phsycological prison which he will remain in for he rest of his life.
I didn't like the verdict in the Casey Anthony case or O.J. Simpson, I believed both got away with murder. Sometimes justice has a way of catching up to people and if it doesn't happen in this life, I believe justice will prevail in the world to come.

The Left's PTSD complex
The problem with the Left is they don't seem to learn from history. It could be because they believe in socialism and re-wrote history to accommodate this view, thereby whitewashing Communism. However, I think it's worse than that. I think they believe everything America and the West has done in the past is wrong, that all our problems stem from an Imperialistic and post war industrial complex. Talk about living in the past?!
The Left lives in a 1960's America.
For the Left the world stopped after the assassinations of JFK and RFK. Talk about post traumatic stress disorder?! These guys have more psychological issues than Vincent Van Gogh just before he cut off his ear.
President Obama's view of Putin's Russia is to scold him about not living in a 21st Century mentality, " “The United States does not view Europe as a battleground between East and West, nor do we see the situation in Ukraine as a zero-sum game. That’s the kind of thinking that should have ended with the Cold War.”
Charles Krauthammer's response to Obama's world view is spectacular: "That’s the kind of sentiment you expect from a Miss America contestant asked to name her fondest wish, not from the leader of the free world explaining his foreign policy." continue here.
It's not just Putin living in the past when Russian supremacy was at its peak. Its Obama acting like Europe in the 1930's. It's why so many people had to die, because Europe was war weary from WWI and thought if they could just appease Hitler he would stop his fantasy of obliterating the Jews and dominating the world. The message Hitler and Stalin received was, the West wasn't going to stop them and therefore they viewed it as assent to pursue their wild fantasy of ruling the world.
Putin clearly told us his ambitions years ago and if Obama wasn't listening, clearly he wasn't, then he re-affirmed them last week upon the annexation of Crimea while his troops were amassing on the border of Ukraine, "After the revolution, the Bolsheviks, for a number of reasons – may God judge them – added large sections of the historical South of Russia to the Republic of Ukraine. This was done with no consideration for the ethnic make-up of the population, and today these areas form the southeast of Ukraine. Then, in 1954, a decision was made to transfer Crimean Region to Ukraine, along with Sevastopol, despite the fact that it was a federal city. This was the personal initiative of the Communist Party head Nikita Khrushchev. What stood behind this decision of his – a desire to win the support of the Ukrainian political establishment or to atone for the mass repressions of the 1930’s in Ukraine – is for historians to figure out.
My goodness this man's ambitions go well beyond Crimea and Ukraine he's pissed off his country seeded any Russian territory in the 1920's for heaven's sake?!
Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney viewed Russia as the number one geopolitical foe. It's not because they live in an Imperialist post war industrialized complex it's because they listen to the man's words. "
The Left has a nasty habit of engaging in wishful thinking and not reality. When our enemies tell us what their goals are we shouldn't ignore them we should take them at that word. This goes for my Conservative and Libertarian friends as well, just because we're war weary it doesn't mean the enemy is and if you don't think China, Russia, & Iran have higher aspirations than their own borders than you better clean your ears.

Today I have one recommendation, read Ann Coulter's column and pass it on to all your friends. You don't need a crystal ball to understand the future of healthcare she's living it.

Will the Supreme Court say no to the US Constitutions first Amendment?
Yesterday the US Supreme Court heard the oral arguments from a group of religious business owners vs. Sebelius (the Federal Government). I can hardly wait till Friday when the oral arguments are put to audio download where I will be able to hear the Justices on the Left argue for companies to either pay the fine or not provide healthcare for their employees. This is precious! I want to make sure I understand the Left is now encouraging big businesses to drop employees healthcare coverage if they object to 4 out of 20 methods of birth control.
The Left, is now arguing that people of conscience should break the law. Better yet, they are saying people of religious beliefs shouldn't go into business if they won't provide IUD's and "the morning after pill". That's right this law, required by mandates written after the law passed and after a handful of Congress people signed a useless piece of paper signed by the Commander in Chief claiming Obamacare would not require people of faith to pay for other peoples abortions. The government is meddling into the personal and private lives of people of conscience in order to make sure IUD's and the "morning after pills" are provided by law according to the centralized planners or pay a fine. The fine which is set by the centralized planners. The fine for the companies bringing suit in this case would cost nearly half a billion dollars.
When Ezekiel Manual (one of the architects of Obamacare) bragged one of the law's goals was to decouple healthcare from employers I guess this is what he had in mind. The Left has long fantasized the life of Karl Marx who felt the goal in the life was to sit around and ponder your navel fuzz. Yes, part of the lure of Marxism is the desire to be lazy. How might one obtain such a life? His way was to live off others wealth like he did. Karl Marx lived off Frederick Engels parents wealth. Whether out of guilt or laziness Marx wanted the world to do what he did and invented a system in his head and called it social science. This my friends was how science began its decent into today's bastardization. This is how we got to today's global warming climate change. It's how the Chicago's teacher's union president, Karen Lewis can argue Math should be secondary to social justice. Got that?!
Many of our young today never read George Orwell's 1984 and therefore cannot and do not know that those who fought the centralized planners claimed freedom was the ability to say 2+2=4. These same people were raised by the self esteem movement who were told 2+2=5 was close enough to the truth. In part, it is how an entire generation became so muddle headed.
The first Amendment to the US Constitution states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Yet, this is what is at stake in this case, our ability to pursue our faith. Put another way, if the government prevails in this case, it will mean, we the people of faith, will be required to abandon our principles if we choose to participate in commerce.
For an Orthodox Jew it could require them to serve pork in a kosher restaurant. It will mean the end of religious holidays because this is the intended path of those who seek power and dominance, the obliteration of G-d. The Left has long fantasized in destroying G-d. I have been told by many on the Left that my religion should only be practiced in the privacy of my home. In other words when I walk out the door the only laws which should govern my actions and standards are those laws created by people in power at any given moment in time, like Obamacare.
Obamacare is a law which never had a majority support of the people but those who were elected didn't care what the people thought, they knew better. They controlled all three branches of government, with super majorities, and therefore, they get to make the rules which will govern the way we live regardless of any Constitution.
All well and good for their time in the spotlight but what if a Republican super majority required every citizen to own a gun.?! Or what if killing an American citizen by drone strike, without due process, was deemed legal?! Oh Wait, that has already happened with Anwar Al-Alwaki. Yes, yes I know he is a terrorist and a bad guy and he committed treason. Isn't this how it starts? Couldn't we have had a trial and found him guilty of treason first? Instead we threw out the concept of due process and have set a different standard. The Left often acts like sharks who poke their prey before they devour them.
Obama has lowered the standards of leadership so much that pond scum would be higher standard. If the Supreme Court does not knock down this law's requirement it will be the end of the Constitution, mark my words.

Where's all that love from Democrats America?!
Get ready folks the news is about to start accusing we, the people, of being angry. It's what happens every time Democrats lose. It's not the policies Democrats have backed and Americans have given 5, going on 6, years of no growth, it's YOU.
You'd think we'd get tired of it. You'd think American's would wake up to the fact the media and Democrat messaging are ONE AND THE SAME, but they don't.
However, I'm jumping ahead of myself because that doesn't happen until after the election, but get ready for it.
The stage Democrats are in right now is another part of their excuse machine that Republicans never get away with. The President is now claiming the reason they will lose in November is because Democrats don't vote in off year elections. They will use the 2010 election to prove it. They will drag out the Bill Clinton results of 1994 when Republicans took control of the House of Representatives to further bolster their argument. Of course that won't explain the Democrats 2006 takeover of the House and Senate, but hey, you're not supposed to remember that election.
The American people do not pay a great deal of attention to politics or news and they seem to be result, as well as, self oriented, although that changed a bit in the 2012 election with President Obama. The fact that 4 million Republican's stayed home and didn't vote upset the establishment of Democrat, Republican, & media so we shouldn't think about that either. However, after nearly 6 years of recovery, let's not forget the "recession" was declared over in January 2009, the American people are tired of hearing Bush did it. If the policies of Barak Obama were so good shouldn't they have a better life?
The question of, are you better off now 6 years after Democrat rule should be the question, and is the only question people are asking themselves, and that's not good for Democrats. After all, aren't they the ones who claim to be for the little guy? Or as Nancy (I can't blink) Pelosi likes to call American's, "Main Street. For that matter,the only ones doing better in the Obama economy are the wealthy.
After all the opining of how much Republicans hate the poor and Democrats love the poor, the people are asking themselves, hey where's the love?! Gas prices are higher than before and, according to Obama, we are producing more oil than ever before. If the oil companies were at fault, believe me we'd be hearing it. How, about wages, they are down too. Food prices have risen but wages have fallen. More people have dropped out of the work force which means less money to the government coughers. Wages have decreased since Democrats took over. Healthcare is worse than ever before and the only ones responsible for that are the Democrats and insurance companies. That is called crony capitalism, when the President approached the insurance companies and said, hey we have a win, win for you guys. We'll (the government) guarantee you 30 million (Now they claim 50 million, proving things have only become worse than before the Democrats touched it.) new clients through the mandate if you give us, the government, total control over the administration of the heath industry. The Insurance companies agreed. College tuitions have done nothing but sky rocket under Obama, this is because he wrote regulations guaranteeing the government will back up the student loans. Isn't that how we exploded the housing industry?!
I haven't even touched the world stage which Obama has withdrawn from. Proving once again, Democrats ideas are wrong for America and the world. The Democrats claim to be the smarter people, just ask them and their whining little college pukes and they'll tell you so. However only the young and stupid and Democrats would believe if American power withdrew from the world stage things would be better. This too has not gone well.
America was never a bad country. We are a flawed country, but we try to do good around the world. We back South Korea, Japan, Ukraine, and many of the Balkan countries. Alright, we did before Obama and now look at things. When we withdraw our power and create a vacuum the vacuum will not be filled with good guys, it doesn't work that way. They only thing bullies, like Putin, Iran, Syria, North Korea, & China understand is not to pick on the strong confident guy because he'll kick your ass. So the Democrat idea that the meek will inherit the world if they will it, is nothing but wishful thinking and wrong. The world is just beginning to figure this out and these are the things which bode ill for the Democrats in November.
If Conservatives can make a case for a smaller federal (centralized) government because it's better for people both rich and poor, our message will last longer than one election cycle and after 8 years of Democrat rule, beginning with their victory in 2006 of the House of Representatives, Conservatives have a great deal of data to show Americans that the Federal government needs to return the power to the people and that means the states. And a stronger America is a safer world for the little guys.

There is NOTHING Progressive about Progressivism! They don't represent "progress" or "forward leaning. "They are, in fact, regressive, tired ideas which haven't changed since Karl Marx.
Today's college educated are the useful idiots of the 60's. The don't even know they are being educated by yesterdays useful idiots.
They think a degree means they're smarter, more moral, and forward thinking. In fact they are the new useful idiots.
