There are several things people need to remember.

1…  There has ALWAYS been variations in the weather.  It’s normal.

2…  There has ALWAYS been climate change, and there always will be.

3…  In spite of all the damage humans have done to the planet, we have NOT caused climate change.

4…   Carbon dioxide is NOT a toxic or undesirable gas.  It is essential for our survival.  Without it, there would be no life on earth as we know it.

5…  AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, When it’s unusually cold on one part of the planet, it’s usually very hot on another part.

The Trayvon Martin killing aftermath



The Trayvon Martin killing aftermath.

By Charley Daniels


OBAMA THE ENVIRONMENTALIST



Is Obama really concerned about the environment?
He will not approve the Keystone Pipeline.  He says because of the environment.

He is shutting down all the coal fired power plants.  In fact, he is shutting all industry that uses coal.   He says because of the environment.

He is opposed to “fracking”.  He says because of the environment.

But there may be another reason why Obama is opposing these things.   It will hurt Islamic oil interests. If the United States becomes energy independent, the Muslim world will lose its stream of income, and Islam will lose its ability to expand.

At least one Arab in the know realizes what is possible in the United States if government gets out of the way and lets the free market take over:

http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/1b6753ce-f86f-11e2-92f0-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2aYiroA8h

“Billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said the Gulf Arab kingdom needed to reduce its reliance on crude oil and diversify its revenues.

“His warning comes as rising shale energy supplies (from fracking) in the United States cut global demand for Saudi oil.

“In an open letter to his country's oil minister Ali al Naimi and other government heads, published on Sunday via his Twitter account, Prince Alwaleed said demand for oil from Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) member states was ‘in continuous decline.’”

Is Obama trying to keep Muslim oil interests intact by putting up roadblocks for domestic oil drilling and cooperation with Canada?

Ben Stein



The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday morning commentary.

My confession:
I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians.
I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.   I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country.  I can't find it in the constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat...

Or maybe I can put it  another way: where did the idea come from that we should  worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God  as we understand him?  I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too.  But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the
America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.

In light of recent events... Terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide).
We said an expert should know what he's talking about..
And we said okay..

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.  Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.  Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.  Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. 

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,
Ben Stein

TWO MORE OBAMACARE UPDATES



1…IRS Workers are Exempt from Obamacare While Making the Rest of Us Comply

Here are some excerpts from a report in the Washington Examiner.
IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law. National Treasury Employees Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obama's health care law.

Like most other federal workers, IRS employees currently get their health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which also covers members of Congress. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp offered the bill in response to reports of congressional negotiations that would exempt lawmakers and their staff from Obamacare.

Camp spokeswoman Allie Walker said.  If the Obamacare exchanges are good enough for the hardworking Americans and small businesses the law claims to help, then they should be good enough for the president, vice president, Congress and federal employees.
END OF WASHINGTON EXAMINER EXCERPTS.

2…I also learned that Obamacare Call Center Offers No Health Insurance Benefits for Employees.
Earlier in the year, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was excited to announce the opening of an ObamaCare call center.  It would be open 24 hours a day, and it’s purpose was to educate Americans about Obamacare and to help people get “affordable” health care.

One of the branches of that call center will go live in a couple months in Concord, California inside Contra Costa County.  It was big local news in that county, and was supposed to be an economic boom to that area in California.

People were going to be able to get fulltime jobs and have health insurance.  People even left their current fulltime jobs to become fulltime customer service representatives, working for this call center.  Only 204 positions were available, but over 7,000 people applied.

So, here’s the irony.   Half of those positions turned out to be “part time intermittent” jobs that offered zero health insurance benefits, in spite of “staff reports listing all 204 jobs as full-time and a job posting saying the same.”  

As one anonymous employee of the call center said, “What's really ironic is working for a call center and trying to help people get health care, but we can't afford it ourselves.”

The Contra Costa Times reported that it was a surprise to the county supervisor, Karen Mitchoff:
 “‘The battle for the call center was over jobs with good working wages and benefits; I never dreamed they would be part-time,’ said Karen Mitchoff, who has heard from complaining constituents and expressed her ‘extreme displeasure with how it was handled’ to call center supervisors.  One recent hire, who last week learned the job would be part-time, said the new ‘intermittent’ employees feel like they've been used as a political tool, and many now regret applying for the positions.”

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK.



WELFARE FOOD IS SHIPPED TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC AND SOLD ON THE BLACK MARKET


It’s Stupid Question Time.



Do you remember “JOE THE PLUMBER”?
Well, like me, he has one of the best political blogs in the internet.
Here is his latest post:



OBAMANOMICS: How’s it working for you?



WASHINGTON (AP) — Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.
Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized U.S. economy, the widening gap between rich and poor and loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend.

The findings come as President Barack Obama tries to renew his administration's emphasis on the economy, saying in recent speeches that his highest priority is to "rebuild ladders of opportunity" and reverse income inequality.

Hardship is particularly on the rise among whites, based on several measures. Pessimism among that racial group about their families' economic futures has climbed to the highest point since at least 1987. In the most recent AP-GfK poll, 63 percent of whites called the economy "poor."

"I think it's going to get worse," said Irene Salyers, 52, of Buchanan County, Va., a declining coal region in Appalachia. Married and divorced three times, Salyers now helps run a fruit and vegetable stand with her boyfriend, but it doesn't generate much income. They live mostly off government disability checks.

"If you do try to go apply for a job, they're not hiring people, and they're not paying that much to even go to work," she said. Children, she said, have "nothing better to do than to get on drugs."

While racial and ethnic minorities are more likely to live in poverty, race disparities in the poverty rate have narrowed substantially since the 1970s, census data show. Economic insecurity among whites also is more pervasive than is shown in government data, engulfing more than 76 percent of white adults by the time they turn 60, according to a new economic gauge being published next year by the Oxford University Press.

The gauge defines "economic insecurity" as a year or more of periodic joblessness, reliance on government aid such as food stamps or income below 150 percent of the poverty line. Measured across all races, the risk of economic insecurity rises to 79 percent.

"It's time that America comes to understand that many of the nation's biggest disparities, from education and life expectancy to poverty, are increasingly due to economic class position," said William Julius Wilson, a Harvard professor who specializes in race and poverty.

He noted that despite continuing economic difficulties, minorities have more optimism about the future after Obama's election, while struggling whites do not.

"There is the real possibility that white alienation will increase if steps are not taken to highlight and address inequality on a broad front," Wilson said.
___
Sometimes termed "the invisible poor" by demographers, lower-income whites are generally dispersed in suburbs as well as small rural towns, where more than 60 percent of the poor are white. Concentrated in Appalachia in the East, they are also numerous in the industrial Midwest and spread across America's heartland, from Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma up through the Great Plains.

More than 19 million whites fall below the poverty line of $23,021 for a family of four, accounting for more than 41 percent of the nation's destitute, nearly double the number of poor blacks.

Still, while census figures provide an official measure of poverty, they're only a temporary snapshot. The numbers don't capture the makeup of those who cycle in and out of poverty at different points in their lives. They may be suburbanites, for example, or the working poor or the laid off.

In 2011 that snapshot showed 12.6 percent of adults in their prime working-age years of 25-60 lived in poverty. But measured in terms of a person's lifetime risk, a much higher number — 4 in 10 adults — falls into poverty for at least a year of their lives.

The risks of poverty also have been increasing in recent decades, particularly among people ages 35-55, coinciding with widening income inequality. For instance, people ages 35-45 had a 17 percent risk of encountering poverty during the 1969-1989 time period; that risk increased to 23 percent during the 1989-2009 period. For those ages 45-55, the risk of poverty jumped from 11.8 percent to 17.7 percent.

By race, nonwhites still have a higher risk of being economically insecure, at 90 percent. But compared with the official poverty rate, some of the biggest jumps under the newer measure are among whites, with more than 76 percent enduring periods of joblessness, life on welfare or near-poverty.

By 2030, based on the current trend of widening income inequality, close to 85 percent of all working-age adults in the U.S. will experience bouts of economic insecurity.

"Poverty is no longer an issue of 'them', it's an issue of 'us'," says Mark Rank, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis who calculated the numbers. "Only when poverty is thought of as a mainstream event, rather than a fringe experience that just affects blacks and Hispanics, can we really begin to build broader support for programs that lift people in need."

Rank's analysis is supplemented with figures provided by Tom Hirschl, a professor at Cornell University; John Iceland, a sociology professor at Penn State University; the University of New Hampshire's Carsey Institute; the Census Bureau; and the Population Reference Bureau.

Among the findings:
—For the first time since 1975, the number of white single-mother households who were living in poverty with children surpassed or equaled black ones in the past decade, spurred by job losses and faster rates of out-of-wedlock births among whites. White single-mother families in poverty stood at nearly 1.5 million in 2011, comparable to the number for blacks. Hispanic single-mother families in poverty trailed at 1.2 million.

—The share of children living in high-poverty neighborhoods — those with poverty rates of 30 percent or more — has increased to 1 in 10, putting them at higher risk of teen pregnancy or dropping out of school. Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 17 percent of the child population in such neighborhoods, up from 13 percent in 2000, even though the overall proportion of white children in the U.S. has been declining.

The share of black children in high-poverty neighborhoods dropped sharply, from 43 percent to 37 percent, while the share of Latino children ticked higher, from 38 to 39 percent.
___
Going back to the 1980s, never have whites been so pessimistic about their futures, according to the General Social Survey, which is conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. Just 45 percent say their family will have a good chance of improving their economic position based on the way things are in America.

The divide is especially evident among those whites who self-identify as working class: 49 percent say they think their children will do better than them, compared with 67 percent of non-whites who consider themselves working class.

Last November, Obama won the votes of just 36 percent of those noncollege whites, the worst performance of any Democratic nominee among that group since 1984.

Some Democratic analysts have urged renewed efforts to bring working-class whites into the political fold, calling them a potential "decisive swing voter group" if minority and youth turnout level off in future elections.

"They don't trust big government, but it doesn't mean they want no government," says Republican pollster Ed Goeas, who agrees that working-class whites will remain an important electoral group. "They feel that politicians are giving attention to other people and not them."

OBAMA IS TRAYVON…A MORON



The idea of a president of the United States saying, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” is ridiculous.


READ THIS ARTICLE BY KEVIN JACKSON:

Trayvon could have been my son now has become, Trayvon is me 35 years ago.

Yeah, well he could have been any teenage boy that was skulking around in the dark and chose to fight rather than talk. 
Actually Mr. President that is not true given that you are 50% white – indeed, you were raised by your white mother and white grandparents, and attended one of the country’s most prestigious preparatory schools, Punahou, founded in 1841.  The tuition is a cool $19,200.  Now that the record is set straight Mr. President, the truth is that you took a tragic situation and injected race into it for your own political benefit.  Shame on you.




They did however have a couple of things in common:
1.    They both used street drugs.
2.    Trayvon was a bad kid and Obama is a bad President.
 
Obama, with help from the news media tried to use this unfortunate incident to start a race war.  I can only think of two possible motives:
    1.  To distract everyone from all the scandals.
    2.  Give him an excuse to declare Martial Law.

If Trayvon had been White, or Hispanic, or Asian, it would have been on page three of the local paper at best.    I am sorry Trayvon is dead, and I was VERY sorry for his parents until I saw them making money off his death… shame on them!



THE LYNCHING: Can you handle the truth?



Here is the truth for those of you who can handle the truth.

Why it took so long for the jury to reach a verdict



The Inside Dope on Trayvon Martin

This explains why it took so long for the jury to reach a verdict.

THEY DIDN’T KNOW THIS: 

AND, THEY DIDN’T KNOW THIS:


The Immigration bill



The Immigration bill outlaws 'discrimination' against illegal aliens!

The immigration reform bill would make it illegal for employees to discriminate against the millions of newly documented illegal aliens who would be granted provisional status, a WND review of the legislation has found.

Case of such discrimination would be referred to the Justice Department’s Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices.

The text of the bill makes it an “unfair immigration-related employment practice” for a “person, other entity, or employment agency, to discriminate against any individual because of such individual’s national origin or citizenship status.”

The anti-discrimination law applies to the following:
  • The hiring of the individual for employment.
  • The verification of the individual’s eligibility to work in the United States.
  • The firing of the individual.
The bill makes an exception for cases in which a newly legalized alien is competing for the same job with a U.S. citizen or national or against another newly legalized alien provided the two competitors are “equally qualified.”

Another exception is a business that employs fewer than three employees or if discrimination is necessary to comply with federal, state or local law, or a federal government contract.

Employers found guilty of discrimination could be fined a penalty of between $2,000 and $25,000 for each individual discriminated against. The fee depends on the “unfair” employment practice.

SUPREME COURT ON "STAND YOUR GROUND"



Eric Holder needs to read this Supreme Court decision…I thought he was a lawyer – Oh, I forgot, he and Obama are above the law.
"Many respectable writers agree that if a man reasonably believes that he is in immediate danger of death or grievous bodily harm from his assailant he may stand his ground and that if he kills him he has not exceeded the bounds of lawful self-defense.  That has been the decision of this court." (Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Brown v. United States, 1921)

PETITION TO GRANT OBAMA IMMUNITY FOR ALL CRIMES



Obama Supporters Sign Petition to Grant Him Immunity for All Crimes He Commits While in Office

In his latest video, Dice tells one passerby the president is “under fire” and “we just need to get behind the president and show we will grant him immunity for any crimes he may have committed.”
“I’m sure he has a good reason,” Dice says.
One person after another signs the petition, tacitly acknowledging that Obama has committed crimes in office.
SEE VIDEO HERE:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHk3c2L6Rck

Previously, Dice convinced people to sign a petition to increase the rate of inflation.  In another video, he couldn’t convince anyone to buy a $1,000 gold coin for as little as $5.



Recently, he got people to sign a petition to do away with the Bill of Rights.

COMING TO AN AIRPORT NEAR YOU



TSA says “If you Pay More We’ll Grope You Less”





THE ACLU GETS IT RIGHT THIS TIME



ACLU to Holder: Leave Zimmerman Alone Now

ACLU Washington Office Director Laura Murphy wrote to Holder, "The ACLU believes the Double Jeopardy Clause of the Constitution protects someone from being prosecuted in another court for charges arising from the same transaction. A jury found Zimmerman not guilty, and that should be the end of the criminal case."



Obama cries RACISM



President Obama “may have” just called George Zimmerman a racist.
“If a white male teen would have been involved in this scenario,” he said, “both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”

Is Obama saying that had Trayvon Martin been a white male teen, he would not have attacked Zimmerman? Or is it that if Zimmerman had seen that Martin was white, he would have been OK with the teen attacking him?  For the president of the United States to make such implications with his fake, gentle nonchalance, is despicable on many levels.  It would also contradict the FBI who cleared Zimmerman of a race crime and determined he is not a racist.

Why did Obama bring race up at all? Did he mean that the jury who decided Zimmerman’s innocence was racist? All six of them?




ZIMMERMAN RESCUES VICTIMS FROM OVERTURNED TRUCK



George Zimmerman Emerged From Hiding for Truck Crash Rescue

George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today.
Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of a family of four -- two parents and two children -- trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The Windy City is Out of Wind



For Fifty years, Democrats have been running Detroit, and for Forty years it has been obvious to conservatives that Detroit would go bankrupt if the government did not change its ways. The government was running up huge bills to the workers for pensions and health care. Detroit was the poster child of bad government.
Unsustainable demands from its 48 unions gradually drove out private industry, as government became the largest employer.  Its shrinking tax base can no longer support the massive pension debt obligations and still provide a minimum level of city services.  Nearly half of the city’s debt is to under-funded pension plans and retirees.

Mitt Romney presciently warned in 2008 that if the government bailed out the automakers, it would ultimately destroy Detroit.  “Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses.  Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.” Obama and the Democrats in Congress didn’t listen and chose to bail out GM and Chrysler.

Now, Detroit’s government is bankrupt.   Fiscal conservatives have said for years that this was inevitable but they were dismissed as crackpots.

Much has been said about the cause of Detroit’s decline over the past 50 years.  Some believe much of the reason may be racial tensions and gang violence.  The exorbitantly high violent crime rate combined with a mass exodus of residents has certainly contributed to Detroit’s destruction.  In 1950, Detroit was the fifth largest city with over 1.8 million people.  Since then, the population has plummeted to just over 700,000 people in 2012.

These are merely symptoms of the real problems, which are bad city government and extremely high unemployment.  As for the bad government, well DUH, that’s what Democrats do.  And as for the high unemployment, that’s what labor unions like the UAW do.

 Take a look at these employment statistics.   Of the 700,000 residence, 560,000 are eligible to work (aged 16 and over), but only 224,000 Detroit residents do work.  Of those workers, 34,500 have government jobs.  There are 257,000 who don’t work and are NOT LOOKING for work.

It’s not surprising then to find out that Detroit’s “average monthly income [is] barely $1,200 before taxes; a fifth of the population [is] in poverty; the official unemployment rate is 30 percent – the real rate [being] much higher.” Detroit is stricken with a 40% poverty rate, and about 35% of its households are on food stamps. And because so many productive citizens have left the city, out of 363,000 housing units, over 99,000 are vacant. 

Unlike other cities which found new industries to replace their failing ones, Detroit never moved on.  Instead, the city’s reaction to the shrinking tax base was to build fancy new buildings, which only dug it deeper into debt.  It became difficult for Detroit to provide basic services such as law enforcement and trash pickup due to the escalating costs of union contracts and benefits, especially health care, which became worse under Obamacare.  The city of Detroit and its school system are now the biggest employers in the city, dwarfing GM and Chrysler.  Yet the city is now supporting more retirees than it has workers, with 18,000 retirees to the city’s 10,000 active public employees.

Detroit has been operating in the red for nine years, and in 2012 its fiscal deficit was $327 million.  The city owes $18 billion to over 100,000 creditors, the biggest ones being pension systems.  There are around 80,000 blighted or abandoned buildings.  Forty-seven percent of Detroit’s taxable properties were delinquent in 2011, according to Reuters. Half of the street lights don’t work.  Schools have been closing, and only seven percent of the city’s eighth graders are proficient in reading. The average police response time is 58 minutes, compared to the national average response time which is 11 minutes.  Detroit has the highest crime rate in the U.S. of large cities, nearly three times the rate of Cleveland.  Only 8.7 percent of violent crimes are ever solved.

There has been plenty of corruption contributing to the fiscal crisis. Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was forced to resign in 2008 over a sex and perjury scandal that cost the city almost $9 million. 
 
Other big cities controlled by the Democrats like Chicago, Oakland and Santa Fe are now headed towards similar disaster, buried under unsustainable pensions, some up to five times their operating revenue.  Chicago just took a steep credit rating hit, as Moody’s lowered the city's credit rating by three levels.  Since 2010, 23 cities and municipalities have declared bankruptcy.  The mayor of Detroit, Democrat Dave Bing, says there are over 100 major urban cities that are going down the same path as Detroit. Steven Luetger, senior managing director of fixed income for Mesirow Financial Holdings Inc., observed that whether it’s Detroit or Chicago, “there doesn’t seem to be any sense of cost discipline in either city.”

Obama warned voters if they voted for Romney, Detroit would go bankrupt. He tweeted on October 17, 2012, “When Gov. Romney said we should just let Detroit go bankrupt, we said thanks but no thanks.” Looks like he was right, I voted for Romney, and now Detroit is filing bankruptcy.

Obama ran on a platform of hope and change, promising blacks he would make them better off. In reality, they’ve been hit the hardest by disastrous liberal policies. Detroit is going bankrupt, contrary to Obama's spin last fall. The biggest victims of the left’s disastrous mismanagement of big-city governments have been blacks - eighty percent of Detroit is black. The left uses blacks and makes them worse off than they were before.

Detroit is our canary in a coal mine; if the left can ruin a city like Detroit with no consequences and a license to do it again, it is just a matter of time before the misery spreads to all our large cities controlled by Democrats. Americans who value their standard of living should see the writing on the wall and leave big Democrat-controlled cities for more conservative states. The country cannot afford overly generous pensions to government employees, and until the pensions are brought in line with the private sector, Americans in large cities controlled by Democrats will suffer – and may even spread their misery to the rest of us if the federal government bails them out.

This is a perfect example of socialism.  Detroit today is the United States in a few years if Democrats remain in power.

On Friday, a circuit court judge in Ingham County ruled that Detroit's federal bankruptcy filing violated a part of Michigan's constitution that protects union pensions.  She ordered it withdrawn, a day after Detroit became the largest U.S. city in history to file for chapter nine bankruptcy.
