Obama vows US will cut emissions by at least 26 percent over next 11 years

President Barack Obama announced Wednesday that the U.S. has set a new goal to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by between 26 percent and 28 percent over the next 11 years as part of a climate change agreement with China. 

The new target is a drastic increase from earlier in Obama’s presidency, when he pledged to cut emissions by 17 percent by 2020. By contrast, Obama’s counterpart, Xi Jinping, did not pledge any reductions by a specific date, but rather set a target for China’s emissions to peak by 2030, or earlier if possible. Xi also pledged to increase the share of energy that China will derive from sources other than fossil fuels.

China’s emissions have grown in recent years due to the building of new coal plants. 

“This is a major milestone in the U.S.-China relationship,” Obama told a news conference in Beijing, with Xi at his side.

“It shows what’s possible when we work together on an urgent global challenge.”

The Associated Press reported that the deal was the result of months of ‘secret discussions’ between U.S. and Chinese officials.

Here is something else to think about on this day after we

Honor our Veterans

During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced the following:

22 aircraft carriers
8 battleships,
48 cruisers,
349 destroyers,
420 destroyer escorts,
203 submarines,
34 million tons of merchant ships,
100,000 fighter aircraft,
98,000 bombers,
24,000 transport aircraft,
58,000 training aircraft,
93,000 tanks,
257,000 artillery pieces,
105,000 mortars,
3,000,000 machine guns, and
2,500,000 military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle
for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

It’s worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn’t build a web site.

Now that’s something to think about on this cold, dreary November day!

Heroes

by AFVet

So,…what or who is a hero ?

Many of the young people today consider baseball players heroes.

Football players and basketball players are heroes.

OK.

Tell me which one of them puts their life on the line to win the game ?

How many of them are millionaires ?

Answer to the first question,…they are not allowed to.

Answer to the second question very many.

They wear uniforms, and sell them to the people that adore them.

Many other people in this Country wear uniforms too.

They are not millionaires.

Rather they are our Sons and Daughters, Moms and the Dads and the Uncles and the Aunts that serve this Country in the military.

They have families, all of them.

Some have children and wives or husbands back home, wherever that may be determined as to where the Soldier or Sailor, or Airman or Marine is stationed.

We have all heard of Army brats, or Navy brats,….children that were moved around because of their father or mother having been transferred to another location.

That can be tough on a kid, and it was, they had to suck it up and move on.

They were the heroes too.

The real heroes are the finest example of what America has to offer.

They say,…..take me!

I volunteer to serve this Country.

I have the guts to do it to.

Send me wherever you want me to go.

Football players and Basketball players are not heroes.

The men and women of the United States Military are.

To the ones that have served, and the ones that are serving,…..

There is no finer honor in my mind than to have served this Country.

Celebrate Veterans Day for what it is.

To my fellow Veterans,…..Semper Fi.

Veterans Day Tribute 2013

VeteransDay_1

Today is the perfect day to pause and take inventory of the many freedoms we have as American citizens.

It is also a great day to thank a Veteran for those freedoms and remember those who never came home.

God Bless America and

thank God for our Veterans

vd

 

Dear Veterans, please forgive US this Veterans Day November 11th 2012

As America takes pause to thank its many Veterans I think it also a good time to Apologize to all those who have served and are serving this great country.

We the People are sorry the American People Voted for all those things you have been fighting against these past two hundred and thirty plus years

How can you ever Forgive US

for letting you down?

From AFVET we have these words of Wisdom

The disenfranchisement of our troops has got to stop.
No ballots delivered to them or receiving the ballots ‘too late’ to be counted is not an excuse.
When our technology allows us to fly a drone over Libya being controlled by an individual in this country and to get the realtime video from it with the possibility of telling it to fire a missile on the enemy, there is NO EXCUSE TO CLAIM THE INABILITY TO RECEIVE AND COUNT BALLOTS SUBMITTED BY THE TROOPS ON A TIMELY BASIS !

To my fellow warriors that are still serving and had their vote dismissed by this administration as non-essential while you spend part of your life to defend and protect the greatest Country that ever existed you will not be forgotten.
This Country never forgets the ones that were lost or maimed.
The families that were forever changed because of the death a loved one in a foreign country that they were willing to protect.
Young children that will never know their father or their mother, all because they had a desire to serve their Country and all that She stands for.

America’s front lines extend across the world, some more dangerous than others.
Even if you are not in a war zone, time away from loved ones takes it toll on relationships.
Veterans Day is Sunday November 11, 2012.

To my Brothers and Sisters serving,…….Semper Fi.
It was an Honor to serve this Country, and to those that still are,
a Smart Salute to your Patriotism.
Well done !

Saluting Our Brave Veterans and The United States Military

Land of the Free and Home of the Brave

I’m 63 and I’m Tired, says former 5 term US Senator and Marine Vietnam Veteran, Robert A. Hall

Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.

“I’m 63 and I’m Tired”
By Robert A. Hall

I’m 63 Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.”  Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.

I’m tired of being told how bad America /Canada is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States and Canada will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China , the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honour”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offence; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.

I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America and Canada  , while no American nor Canadian group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a  three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next?  Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”?  And, no,  I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion.  I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honourably for three years in our military…. Those are the citizens we need.

I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war?  You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave?  Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are?  Not even close.  So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British, Canadian and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet.

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

Speaking of poor, I’m tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, colour TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter.

The 2010 Year in review from Enola Gay’s Voting American Patriots

A year of Defeat and Victory

This was the year that saw the rapid advance of Socialism in America with the passage of many Freedom Stealing laws and Socialistic Big Government Control’s over our lives.

The Silver Lining in all of these Defeats was the Election on November 2nd in which We the People came out in force and Spoke with a loud voice Proclaiming the beginning of the end for the Socialist/ Marxist/Communist Movement in this Country. It is over for all of you Progressive Socialists and you know it.  We move onward and upward now towards the 2012 Elections and the Final Death Blow to this Evil and Corrupt Movement in our beloved United States of America.
