News Round Up 1/26/2012
What a pathetic, thin-skinned, petulant child! This man is supposed to be our president and can't comport himself with even the requisite level of decorum when someone disagrees with him. Perhaps that might be why Washington can't compromise! Even the much loathed George W. Bush was capable of graciousness when confronted with the most venomous criticisms ever leveled at a president.
Article: Ahmadinejad says Iran ready for nuclear talks
"Ahmadinejad says Iran ready for nuclear talks" I believe that... MILLIONS wouldn't but I do. This is just another stall tactic. Of course Obama will be dumb enough to buy into it, "See I knew my sanction approach would works... Say what is that mushroom shaped cloud doing over Saudi Arabia's oil fields?"
Article: Taxpayers still owed $132.9B from bailout: report
That would be the 132.9 billion dollar donation we taxpayers were "generous" enough to give the unions. Plan on seeing large chunks of it spent to reelect Obama.
Article: Cops: Man, 65, kills teen who knocks him off bicycle
Score another point for the necessity for concealed carry and the innate human right to self-defense.
Article: Gingrich vows to establish a colony on the moon
It would be refreshing to have a real space program with real attainable goals again. It might be a good idea to construct an expeditionary vessel in orbit that could be provisioned for long range exploratory trips to say Mars or the asteroids and the re-provisioned, re-tooled and reused for the next trip. There are a set of similar requirements that would mean the we could realize a real amount of savings with this approach... This would use the lessons we learned about the benefits of re-use from the space shuttle program.
Article: Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice
Let me get this straight, a leftist from a left leaning school has designed a study to prove that we conservatives are stupid and prejudiced. Now there's a big surprise... It would have been a greater surprise if he'd arrived at a different outcome.
Article: Video: Divers find large, unexplained object at bottom of Baltic Sea
Interesting... Anyone care to speculate what it might be?
Article: U.S. to Iraq: don't "blow this opportunity"
Whether you agree with the decision to go to Iraq or not, it would be sad to see all the shed blood and spent treasure be for naught just because we were in a breakneck hurry to get out. But then again we've wasted so much lately why would I be daft enough to believe this would be any different?
Article: Panetta: US ground forces would be cut by 100,000
This is utterly, positively MORONIC!!! Third world nation status... Here we come! The liberals have redistributed all of our wealth around the globe and now Obama's going to squander all of our military supremacy... Why do I see more "leading from behind" in his future. I served in the military right after Jimmy Carter decimated it. We didn't even have parts to fix our vehicles. Half of them were red lined and unable to be moved. Compared to this travesty, that hardship was a walk in the park.
Article: Report: 36 Obama staffers delinquent on federal taxes
Hey Barack, maybe before you work on getting the rich to pay "their fair share" you ought to work on getting your people to do so first! Seriously, people in glass houses shouldn't toss rocks!
Article: Vets oppose speech by general who demonized Islamists
I frequently get crucified when I state the truth but here goes. The military is by and large conservative. In every annual Stars and Stripes poll, soldiers self-identify to at least 70%, as being conservative. Are there liberal veterans? Of course, but they are the vastest minority (and are just the ones that haven't yet learned which side their bread is buttered on). Now, to this particular group, VoteVets... The majority of their membership does not claim to be veterans. There has been a large number of their members who do claim to be veterans identified as perpetrators of what we veterans call "stolen valor"; low-life posers who claim to be veterans or actual veterans who inflate the nature of their service. This organization is a George Soros financed liberal venture just like move-on.org or ACORN. The fact that such a group would not wish to be told about the true nature of our enemies... does not surprise me in the least.
