Griefs2bear Our cat Velvet should have been named Ruth judging by her habit. She follows me everywhere I go and gets personally involved in my projects. Note the black furry blob on my right knee. She really likes to be near the vibrations while I'm practicing. http://youtu.be/UngkyAYvy7U
"Obama comes from a community organizer background where it's us against them. But that's not who we are. And that's not the position the leader of our Nation should take." – Dr. Benjamin Carson
Obama appears to be a tormented man who is filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps because, as a child, he grew up around family members and mentors who instilled him with an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. That bitterness seems not to have left him.
It is not the color of his skin that is a problem – for anyone in America. Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.
Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday – or is he moved to sadness and reflection when someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever felt the depth of our admiration of the military, as lovers of those who keep America free feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful – because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a grandfather or uncle who showed his medals and told of the bravery of his fellow troops as they fought and tramped through foreign lands sacrificing for a cause greater than their own lives. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.
Bettijo How Prosecutors Fought to Keep Rosen’s Warrant Secret
The Obama Administration fought to keep a search warrant for James Rosen’s private e-mail account secret, arguing to a federal judge that the government might need to monitor the account for a lengthy period of time.
Yesterday, hours after President Obama said, in a speech at National Defense University, that he had asked Attorney General Eric Holder to review the Justice Department’s policies concerning investigations of the media, NBC News reported that the warrant to search Rosen’s e-mail account was personally approved by Holder.
That something written forty-five years ago, and reproduced by the T in 2005, should be the T's "Most Viewed" today speaks volumes--that so many people should remember it and search for it in the T's archives. I haven't read the speech for some time but each time I do the words convey even more than the time before.
Most of you probably know that Enoch Powell was destroyed by the reaction to his speech--and yet he was honest, forthright and, most important, accurate. The words are a bit old-fashioned but none the worse for that. In fact, they add a strength and seriousness that today's buzzwords would minimize.
Please take some time out of your day and read the speech.
Please note: Powell refers to one of his constituents who speaks of his children having gone to "grammar school." As used in the article the term refers to a mainly scholarship school where the top ten percent of scorers in a special exam are awarded a place in a sort of college prep school. It used to be the way for the working classes to move up and go straight to a white-collar job or higher education, although things have changed somewhat since then, thanks to the Labour party. Ironic, because one of our school's students went on to become Prime Minister.

Attercliffe Sorry, I can't get the url to print properly. Obviously, you have to leave out everything before http.
Fireball27 This article sounds just like what happened in my old neighborhood. Oakland, California middle 1960's. The part about the old widow being the only white left in her neighborhood is exactly what happened to a once beautiful city. Everyone who could move out did, only those elderly with paid off homes stayed. Every week you would hear of an old couple being beaten and robbed in their own home. Now my old neighborhood is referred to as "the killing zone". We went to the bay area to visit family and my wife would not let me even drive by my old house. People can call me a racist, I'm not, it is just that the destruction of my old hometown was caused by a certain minority. It doesn't matter what minority, or if it was a minority at all, the destruction was and is real. Oakland was beautiful in the 50's and early 60's. Look at it now. Liberals have run the government in the county and city, and certainly turned it into a big mess.

Hollyhock Fireball, the very same thing happened to nice cities and towns in southern Cal in the early 60's too. I grew up in Santa Ana. My Dad was stubborn and didn't want to leave the home he bought and payed off. Enoch Powell was a prophetic voice that was ignored.

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to Obamastan

Fort Hood, Benghazi, the Boston bombings, Iran/Syria, Israel. The pattern is unmistakeable; the danger to America is exponentially increasing; the scandal is deepening into something nearer to a national crisis.
The Obama administration is playing down the Islamist threat to the US and the free world, empowering Islamists at home and abroad, endangering America and betraying its allies -- and covering up its egregious failure to protect the homeland as a result of all the above, while instead blaming America for its own victimisation.
Escaped commieny in a nut shell, FTA: ‘“Every troubling Middle East-Southwest Asia country — Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and now maybe Syria — where the Obama administration made a significant policy push has gone over to Islamists that are now much more hostile to the United States,” the official said.’ Thank you Attercliffe, as you know I am a great fan of Brigitte Gabriel after meeting with her in 2006, she has been ringing the warning bell since being rescued by Israel from her underground hole in Lebanon, sadly once the "Paris" of the ME

Escaped commieny I have said from the beginning, this isn't about politics or zero, it is a battle of good vs evil, 1400 yrs of islam trying to prevail. 800 yrs ago Christians were being captured by Moslems and sold into slavery by the thousands. They want to do it again. We need another St John of Matha, a Reagan,or a Thatcher.

Bettijo Neil Cavuto just went on a tyrant about Obama's refusing to call Islamic terriorist what they are. Maybe his remarks will be posted on FOX web site. They were excellent.

Linder The beauty of the original Tea Party protests seemed to be the spontaneous rebellion. I wonder if they can ever be replicated. But have to give these people credit for being out there.

Belwhatter This is all wrong - Homeland Security dressed up like the police in a show of force defending the witless IRS agiainst what? A well behaved group of people claiming their First Amendment right to free speech. This is a huge abuse of our tax money as well as an abridgement of our civil right.

Judith If nothing else, this underscores a rogue government, from the head on down, who did NOT have unfortunate circumstances/employees make MISTAKES. These goons, on taxpayer's dimes, were sent to intimidate. And the government is very bold to take this action at this time.

Fireball27 Federal Protective Service Police? Who has ever heard of them? I sure haven't. Lets ask our liberal friends if they have. I bet they haven't either. Looks like another power play by those in charge. Is this something set up by the Bush administration?
Yesterday at 14:13 EST .
Fireball27 I looked it up. The Federal Protective Service Police has been around since...1790! It started out as 6 night watchmen that oversaw Federal buildings. Obama moved them from Immigration and Customs to Homeland Security.

Magdalene This used to be a neighborhood. Not trailer homes, real, well-built, brick and mortar houses, probably 2000-2500 sq ft, by what I know of the area.

Magdalene Just thought I'd post a couple pictures from Tornado Alley. I didn't take these, but they were in my FaceBook newsfeed and I wanted to share them.

Gerty Only demonstrates how much we need to mourn the losses and pray for the survivors. Thanks for sharing, Miss Magdalene.

Balogreene I grew up in Tornado Alley - The Eastern part (Illinois ). I saw tornadoes, even "big" tornadoes, but nothing like this. I hate to say the power of God, cause He didn't will this. But, our world has many amazing, terrifying things. We must pray for healing for the people, and common-sense for the government.
Wednesday at 20:36 EST .
Linder When we hear this tornado had more power than an atomic bomb it's put into a whole new perspective.
Wednesday at 21:43 EST .
Belwhatter I am so sad for the terrible losses in the heartland and the terrifying experience they have come through. I sincerely hope that trailer homes will be banned outright in tornado alley from this day forward, and that re-construction will see reinforced concrete and/or steel walls and framing. - homes with their backs to the southwest and west for safety's sake. The toll is too much with a stick built house.
