It saddens me each day that this country has so declined.

Obama has done more of the wrecking ball to this country in his 5 1/2 years that we have to be astute now and say deliberate.

No one ever asked to know anything about him and his records were sealed for a purpose. Some other interesting questions.

Why was Obama’s law license inactivated in 2002?

Michelle-Obama-Angry

Why was Michelle’s law license inactivated by court order?

According to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama – but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases.

WHAT!?

The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is never reported to have lived.

No wonder all his records are sealed!

Somewhere, someone had to know him in school… before he “reorganized” Chicago and burst upon the scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention and made us swoon with his charm, poise, and speaking pizzazz.

I Smell a Rat!

There was a whole movement to push him, protect him and keep him in office and this is what we found out the hard way.

That same deviant group needs to continue with his wrecking ball style to keep the “Party” in power.

The democrat party of the past is dead and gone.

Wake up Americans and see what you are dealing with.

I couldn’t tell you how many are still in Zombie ville because of it they are!

America’s Sunset Years…

We have all seen and heard the lies coming from this President and his administration over these past five years not to mention all the lies and cover ups coming from our various government agencies, and yet the American people seem to just go about their daily lives completely oblivious to the destruction of our freedom and  way of life in these United States of America.

 Today we find ourselves at a crossroads where one path is apathy and the other is survival. The big question we should be asking ourselves these days is whether the road less traveled will be the one that wins the day come the Mid-Term Elections this November.

With 51% of the electorate solidly behind this entitlement mentality one has to wonder when, if ever, the tide will swing back to responsibility and personal achievement through hard work and an honest days wage.

Death Panels at the Veterans Affairs Health Care system?

department-of-veterans-affairs-lincoln-plaque

CNN delivers a shocking report that “at least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.”

http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/23/health/veterans-dying-health-care-delays/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

After all the ridicule it would seem Sarah Palin was right after all…

993081_10201257418907996_724921225_n

“Death panel” is a political term that originated during the 2009 debate about federal health care legislation to cover the uninsured in the United States used to describe the system’s Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). The term was coined in August 2009 by Sarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska, when she charged that the then-proposed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act would create a “death panel” of bureaucrats who would decide whether Americans—such as her elderly parents or children with Down syndrome—were “worthy of medical care”. Palin’s claim has been referred to as the “death panel myth”,.[1][2] Palin specified that she was referring to Section 1233 of bill HR 3200 which would have paid physicians for providing voluntary counseling to Medicare patients about living wills, advance directives, and end-of-life care options.

Palin’s claim was criticized in editorials by mainstream news media, fact-checkers, academics, physicians, Democrats, and some Republicans. Prominent Republicans such as Newt Gingrich and conservative talk radio hosts Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Malkin backed Palin’s statement. One poll showed that after it spread, about 85% of Americans were familiar with the charge and of those who were familiar with it, about 30% thought it was true.[1] Due to public concern, the provision to pay physicians for providing voluntary counseling was removed from the Senate bill and was not included in the law that was enacted, the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In a 2011 statement, the American Society of Clinical Oncology bemoaned the politicization of the issue and said that the proposal should be revisited.

For 2009, “death panel” was named as PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year”, one of FactCheck’s “whoppers”, and the most outrageous term by the American Dialect Society.

 So now we have the

VA hospital scandal

~ by AFVet ~

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5

Veterans waiting for months for an APPOINTMENT, let alone care for their ailments.

In 2009, Obama knew about this problem and here it is 2014 and veterans are dying waiting for treatment.

These people were willing to give their lives for this Country.

Many lost limbs, and some were incapacitated in other areas of a normal existence.
Nightmares may persist, the echoes of combat do not go away.
The inability to shake the memories can prove to change your life for the rest of your life.

Still, many function as fathers and mothers and raise a family, and do quite well in doing so.
They do so because they are the cream of the crop that this Country can ever produce and they are showing the courage that it takes to carry on no matter what.

These are the true Americans, the spine of America, the best of the best.

The ones that will still give their last breath to defend this Country.

In WWII, 25 missions on a bomber and you were out.
Many did not make that goal.
The bomber was either shot down or they lost it and could no longer perform their duty due to mental conditions.

This Country owes a lot to the people that were willing to put their life on the line to protect Her from the ones that would take Her away from US.

Our taxpayer money goes to pay the VA to take care of the ones that took care of US.

The ones that are responsible to maintain them have fallen down on the job, consistently.

Time to take our Country back.

10155989_659518427430210_4244022012364032260_n

We the People are not finished yet,…we have only just begun.

God Bless America and the ones that defended Her and the ones that defend Her to this day.

What gives the federal government the right to impose itself upon you if you have done no wrong ?

 

Many people take the opinion that they haven’t broken any law.

 

Many say that they have committed no crimes.

 

With today’s government,…can you be sure ?

 

My response to those comments are,…by who’s rules?

 

Children that are suspended from school for forming a gun with their hand.

 

Or for eating a pop tart into the shape of a gun.

 

All the while, teachers, men and women, are engaging in sex with the students that they are paid to educate by the parents that have no choice but to put their children in their care.

 

All of this is happening amidst the desecration of the Christian voice striving to speak out against it.

 

The gay community, the abomination, continues to grab the headlines on our news channels.

 

The LGBT has infested our Military, and yet we allow it to proceed.

 

America, what have we become ?

 

Are you willing to accept this ?

 

Aren’t you willing to take a stand and say NO MORE !

 

Take heed my friends, for the task that we must undergo is at hand.

 

Go out there and VOTE for OUR Country, and Her survival in the choppy seas that She is immersed in.

 

Right now, the rudder is in the wrong hands.

The invasion of America began with the election of Woodrow Wilson and continues to this day.  Howbeit ever so subtle in the beginning we hardly noticed the enemy at our gates.  Some one hundred years after the fact we find ourselves in  amazement at the overwhelming forces that have come to bare against our Constitution and way of life. This is like awaking from a nightmare only to realize it is reality.

America is in peril today not so much because of this corrupt administration but more so because of a populace that has embraced their Marxist/Socialist ideology.  A populace that no longer embraces the values that made this the greatest nation the world has ever known, but rather, a populace that has sold their soul for a free ride.

President Obama’s thoughts on Legalizing Marijuana

35b248c52d54a688399b9e885b88d781

President Obama is taking a hit from anti-drug groups for downplaying the effects of marijuana use, as some point out his recent comments appear to clash with statements by his own health and law enforcement agencies. 

The president, in a recent interview with The New Yorker, likened pot to cigarettes and alcohol. 

“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” Obama said. 

He added that smoking marijuana is “not something I encourage” and is “a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy.” 

But anti-drug and public health organizations have since seized on the remarks, claiming the president is giving a muddy picture of the medical downsides of marijuana. 

“His laissez-faire attitude about legalization has drug policy and prevention experts scratching their heads in confusion as to why the President will not give clear guidance on this important issue,” The Drug-Free America Foundation said on its website. 

“President Obama is surrounded by a myriad of experts who have voiced serious concerns about the harms of marijuana and rejected legalization, so either he is seriously ill-informed about the issue or is completely ignoring warnings from his highly-esteemed advisers.” 

Obama’s comments were made to the backdrop of Colorado and Washington state legalizing and regulating marijuana. His remarks could be taken as another signal that his administration will not interfere with their experiment — though recreational marijuana use remains illegal under federal law. 

The president echoed the argument that pro-legalization advocates often make, stressing the cost to society of locking up minor drug offenders. 

“Middle-class kids don’t get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do,” Obama said. “And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.” 

But his administration, and those of his predecessors, repeatedly have documented and publicized health risks from the drug. 

Obama’s own Office of National Drug Control Policy still states on its website that the administration “steadfastly opposes legalization of marijuana and other drugs.” 

The office lists a range of negative health and mental consequences from the drug, including schizophrenia, lower IQ (“as much as an 8 point drop”), and higher risk of heart attack. 

The National Institute on Drug Abuse says the drug is addictive, with nearly 4.2 million people having a pot abuse or addiction problem in 2011. 

The agency says the drug is linked to “school failure” and high doses “can cause psychosis or panic when you’re high.” 

The American Society of Addiction Medicine released a statement on Tuesday noting that the drug impairs memory, motor function and respiratory health when smoked — and can be addictive. 

“Addiction is a chronic brain disease that can affect people at any age. In fact, the younger one initiates alcohol or drug use, the greater the likelihood that he or she has addictive disease,” ASAM President Stuart Gitlow said. 

A recurring rebuttal to the president’s comments is that weed today is stronger than it was when, say, Obama smoked it. 

The White House drug office says studies show the potency has “almost tripled over the past 20 years.”

Marijuana Legalization

Marijuana is a topic of significant public discourse in the United States, and while many are familiar with the discussions, it is not always easy to find the latest, research-based information on marijuana to answer to the common questions about its health effects, or the differences between Federal and state laws concerning the drug. Confusing messages being presented by popular culture, media, proponents of “medical” marijuana, and political campaigns to legalize all marijuana use perpetuate the false notion that marijuana is harmless. This significantly diminishes efforts tkeep our young people drug free and hampers the struggle of those recovering from addiction.

For more information, please visit our Marijuana Resource Center.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/ondcp/ondcp-fact-sheets/marijuana-legalization

The president attracted a rebuke along those lines from former Democratic Rep. Patrick Kennedy, who told MSNBC that Obama’s director in charge of drug abuse would tell him “that, in fact, today’s modern, genetically modified marijuana — so it’s much higher THC levels — far surpass the marijuana that the president acknowledges smoking when he was a young person.” 

He said the president’s remarks were “wrong.” 

Despite the discord, Colorado is charging ahead with launching the nation’s first legal pot trade and other states are considering loosening their own rules. The New Hampshire House recently approved a legalization bill. 

Advocates point to the legal and personal costs to individuals of continuing to prosecute a full-throated drug war. FBI stats show hundreds of thousands of people are arrested every year for marijuana. 

Obama, in his interview, suggested there is hypocrisy in the system, since those writing drug laws “have probably done the same thing” as those being locked up.

Robert Gates Book puts Obama/Biden on Damage Control

Gates book bashes Biden, Obama

By Lauren Ashburn

Robert Gates is out with his new book and it’s a doozy.

In “Duty,” due to hit stores Jan. 14, the former Defense secretary says — among other things — that when it comes to Afghanistan, Obama “doesn’t believe in his own strategy … it’s all about getting out.”

Pundits rightly declare it a less than flattering picture of life in the White House. The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward calls the book, “an antagonistic portrait of a sitting President.”

But the Pres isn’t the only target. Gates slaps VP Biden, well, for being Biden.

ABC gets out the abacus finding it’s not the first time a phrase like ‘wrong side of foreign policy decisions’ has been used by Republicans to describe the Veep.

The White House backed their man faster than he could say Uncle Joe.

Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist, weighs in tweeting a qualified nod to the author’s credibility.

And what about the little guys who got a bum rap from Gates? Al-Monitor’s Laura Rozen leaps to their defense.

Republicans can win it all in 2014?

UVA’s political science professor, Larry Sabato, who is an oft-seen cable face during elections, writes in his new Politico Magazine column that the Grand Old Party could sweep up in 2014.

But, don’t miss the big “if” attached to his prediction: If, among other factors, Republicans don’t mess it up.

Well, that clears that up.

A key vote passed in the Senate, paving the way for unemployment benefits to be restored. “Mom” is the beneficiary in the White House tweets.

Most Republicans refused to support the extension without corresponding budget cuts. The National Journal’s Ron Fournier just wants everyone to get along.

Good luck with that or any other kind of compromise, tweets reporter Matt Laslo.

And don’t expect him to go there any time soon.

You wanna know what Matt Drudge thinks about ObamaCare?  You probably don’t need to read his tweet to guess.

So there.

It wasn’t quite as big as Jay Carney’s new beard, but the numbing temps in D.C. had journos yukking it up on Twitter yesterday morning.

In my book, v-necks beat ear flaps. Hands down.

The ObamaCare Train Wreck

ObamaCare enrollment figures still far short of administration’s own goal

By Jim Angle

Published January 07, 2014

FoxNews.com

While the Obama administration is congratulating itself for signing up 2.1 million people in private plans on state and federal health care exchanges, some analysts say it’s a little early to uncork the champagne.

Robert Laszewski of Health Policy and Strategy Associates says, “ObamaCare has proven that it can enroll the sick people. To only have 2 million people enrolled out of 20 million uninsured, plus all the canceled policies, indicates you only got a very small group of people enrolled.”

That’s not even enough, he and others argue, to make up for the policies that were canceled because they didn’t meet the requirements of ObamaCare.

Even the 2.1 million signed up through the end of December 2013 is far short of the administration’s own goal of more than 3.3 million by the end of December – a number projected last September by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services or CMS.

And that figure was just a stepping stone to the eventual goal of 7 million by the end of March.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told NBC in an interview last September, “Well, I think success looks like at least 7 million people having signed up by the end of March 2014.”

But now that the administration appears to be falling short, other officials are playing down the 7 million target, sometimes even using exactly the same words.

Gene Sperling, director of Obama’s National Economic Council, argued on “Meet the Press” Sunday that “first of all, there is no magic number. The key is to enroll as many people, have an exchange that`s working….”

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that “it’s important to understand that it is not – that there’s not some magic number – 6,999,999, and the system collapses – one more than that, and it functions perfectly.”

Carney said what is more important than total numbers is who is signing up.

“In terms of how effective the marketplaces function, the makeup, the mix of the population that enrolls is more important that the total number,” he said.

On that, there appears to be no disagreement. But the mix factor is precisely what worries many analysts because with all the problems on the ObamaCare website,the most desperate and determined were the most likely to sign up.

“It doesn’t take Einstein to figure out that the first people who will enroll are the sick people,” says Laszewski.

Data from the state exchanges, such as Kentucky, point in the same direction.

James Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center says ObamaCare does help the poorest and sickest with subsidies.

“If they’re less healthy, it’s a good deal, he says. “So those are the people that have signed up in Kentucky so far. They haven’t really attracted the percentage they need in terms of 20 to 30 year olds.”

Data from other states reflects the same trend.

Administration officials say not to worry– that the young often wait until the end.

But if they don’t sign up, it could be the end, because the plan isn’t financially sustainable without them.

 Jim Angle currently serves as chief national correspondent for Fox News Channel (FNC). He joined FNC in 1996 as a senior White House correspondent.
