The first Republican presidential debate was held tonight in South Carolina. Participating in the debate was Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, businessman Herman Cain, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. Candidates were asked about a variety of topics from the war on terrorism, to government interference in the free market, to abortion and drug legalization, to marriage and homosexuality.
All of President Barack Obama’s “pussy-footing around” on not releasing photos or videos of a dead Osama Bin Ladin is really keeping the followers of the “religion of peace” lulled and subdued, isn’t it? Maybe it’s time to update the bumper stickers and t-shirts from “How’s that ‘Hope and Change’ working out for you?” to “How’s that Pussy-Footing around working out for you?”
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has started a revolt — a pro-democracy revolt in favor of taxpayers and workers. Taxpayers are fed up with trillions in extravagant union-backed public worker benefits, as are fiscally conservative state leaders. And many of the states taking on the extravagant pay and demands of the union bosses are winning.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation had tried to stop the National Day of Prayer but on April 14, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit rejected FFRF’s lawsuit and allowed the National Day of Prayer to continue. As the National Day of Prayer is already underway today, Alliance Defense Fund attorneys say they are ready to offer free legal counsel to any government entities legally challenged for recognizing events related to Thursday’s National Day of Prayer.
From the beginning of the release of information about the strike on Osama Bin Laden, we were told that President Barack Obama considered a bombing or missile strike to take out Bin Laden. Ultimately, one of the key reasons President Obama decided against a bomb or missile strike was the fact that we would very likely have no physical proof left that we had indeed got Bin Laden and we got the right guy. But after having started well, Obama has now muddied the waters by refusing to release a simple photo, and by giving an honorable burial to a monster bereft of any sliver of honor.
Though Pastor Terry Jones was denied a permit to demonstrate outside a mosque and jailed for asking, he eventually held a peaceful protest in front of the Dearborn, Michigan City Hall. Adherents to the “religion of peace” met his peaceful protest with yelling and screaming, throwing shoes and bottles at the peaceful demonstrators. Some may disagree with Jones’ burning of a Quran, but he has deftly succeeded in exposing the “religion of peace” as having plenty of volatile and violent followers.
A senior troubleshooter with an insurance agency says ObamaCare is already causing problems for seniors with health care providers passing the buck and leaving seniors stuck with bills. He has noticed this particular problem only in the wake of ObamaCare which reallocates massive amounts of money from Medicare to ObamaCare.
