My comments on the GOP cave-in

on January 1, 2013, 9:45 PM / in Local News, News

Jackie, my comments on the GOP cave-in Once again Sen. McConnell got nothing in his negotiations with VP Biden. Great give and take session McConnell gave and Biden took. This fiscal cliff deal increases the national debt by $4 trillion and is an net increase in spending. $2 billion in spending cuts in 2013 (and those are the only real […]

Thanks to Bob for this update on the GOP sell out…. Hey folks, Despite earlier media reports, the House will not consider a spending cut amendment to the Senate-passed fiscal cliff legislation.

They should go over the cliff

They should go over the cliff

on January 1, 2013, 1:17 PM / in National News, News

Dear Friends, Happy New Year!  Unfortunately for the GOP, it begins on a bitter note. Last night, without any legislative language, the Senate Republicans and Democrats voted to raise taxes.  They did not just vote to raise income taxes.  They voted to raise the payroll tax on all Americans. This will hurt small businesses. Ironically, this plan generates less revenue […]

Gov. Perdue pardons Wilmington 10

Gov. Perdue pardons Wilmington 10

on January 1, 2013, 10:13 AM / in National News, News

I was not in the courtroom nor was I on the jury but I am pretty sure we may have seen a mischarge of justice in the act. One particular comment that I found laughable from the news writer was “Perdue’s pardon means the state no longer thinks the 10 committed a crime.” The writer also stated: The N.C. Industrial […]

“Gun Nuts” — Projection, deliberate and otherwise, amongst the hoplophobes.

Original Post “The whole purpose being to defame the targeted group and further isolate them from the general population.” Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting […]

Government and Big Banks Joined Forces to Violently Crush Peaceful Protests

on January 1, 2013, 9:20 AM / in National News, News

The definition of fascism used by Mussolini is the “merger of state and corporate power“. Government and the big banks are in a malignant, symbiotic relationship. And our economy now exhibits a merger of state and bank power. Prominent economist Robert Kuttner said in 2009: What we have is something perilously close to a dictatorship of the Fed and the […]

Timeline of Top Political Stories of 2012

on December 31, 2012, 9:01 AM / in National News, News

William Browning published his “Timeline of Top Political Stories of 2012” a couple of days ago. It was his muse that politics was top dog and he may have been correct. While I, myself, think the top story was the re-election of the President by an ever increasing population of wanters, Mr. Browing’s time line leads with: Feb. 29: Fiscal cliff appears […]

ADOPTED, NOT ABORTED

on December 31, 2012, 7:04 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

by Maria Keller “Adoption, not abortion” is a sign often seen at abortuary pickets. Do we, as prolifers, understand adoption? Are we aware of all that pro-abortionists are doing to undermine the institution of adoption? In its most simplistic sense, adoption is the process whereby a couple (or single person) agree to take and raise a child who is not […]
