U.S. Foreign Policy...
So, what exactly is Obama's strategy? Apparently he thinks our foreign is in good hands with Secretary of State John Kerry. Indeed, they are the sole
members of each other's mutual admiration society. Last week, to the laughter of the State Department press corps, Kerry's lead spokesperson, Jen Psaki, asserted,
"I would argue the president doesn't give himself enough credit for what he's done around the world." When asked for clarification, she pointed to "engagement
initiatives like Iran, what we've done on Ukraine, [and] efforts to dive in and engage around the world. ... We're talking about engagement in the world and taking
on tough issues that present themselves."
Seriously, she said that.

further details as they become available
I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 30.06 right in the doorway.
I left 6 shells beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.
While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor boy across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars
stopped at the stop sign near the front of our house.
After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it. It hadn't
moved itself outside. It certainly hadn't killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had been presented to do so. In fact, it hadn't even loaded itself.
Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the media hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people.
- - - Either the media is wrong. or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in the world.
Well, I'm off to check on my spoons. I hear they're making people fat.
- The United States is 3rd in Murders throughout the World.
- But if you take out Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC
and New Orleans, the US is 4th from the bottom for Murders.
- These 4 Cities also have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the United States
- ALL 4 are controlled by Democrats.
- It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data - right?
The six contradictions of socialism in the United States of America:
- America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
- Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
- They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
- Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
- The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other
countries only dream about.
- They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet
they want America to be more like those other countries.

"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain
too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from
distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will
pursue his principles unto death."
--Thomas Paine in The American Crisis, 1776
"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties,
nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in
their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders."
--Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, 1775

"The change we seek has always required great struggle and great sacrifice." - - Barack Hussein Obama
"The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master."- - - Ayn Rand
"Here's the whole quote: It stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there's someone
being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master."
The Fountainhead, 1943.
"The origin and outset of the American Republic, contain lessons of which posterity ought not to be deprived."
--James Madison, to William Eustis, 1819
What Were They Thinking? The Founders' Thoughts Behind the Constitution
Read The Federalist Papers
"If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over
men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."
James Madison, Federalist #51

""The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier
to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man
for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools
should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude
of fools such as those who made him their president."
"The philosophy of gun control: Teenagers are roaring through town at 90MPH, where the speed limit is 25. Your solution is to lower the speed limit to 20.

LIFE IS LIKE A COIN.
You can choose to spend it any way you wish,
But you can only spend it once.
"Democracy tends to ignore, even deny, threats to its existence because it loathes doing what is needed to counter them. It awakens only when the danger
becomes deadly, imminent, evident. By then, either there is too little time left for it to save itself, or the price of survival has become crushingly high."
Jean-Francois Revel - (1924-2006) French politician, journalist, author, philosopher
