A zinger from George Will regarding Obama's plan to mandate free birth control...

 

George Will on Contraception Flap

 

George Will: Three points. As Paul Ryan said to you, this is an accounting gimmick that they've done that in no way ends the complicity of Catholic institutions and individuals in delivering services they consider morally abhorrent.

 

Second. You asked the question, 'How did this come about?' George, this is what liberalism looks like. This is what the progressive state does. It tries to break all the institutions of civil society, all the institutions that mediate between the individual and the state. They have to break them to the saddle of the state.

 

Third. The Catholic Bishops, it serves them right. They're the ones who were really hot for Obamacare, with a few exceptions. But they were all in favor of this. And this is what it looks like when the government decides it's going to make your healthcare choices for you.

Whether he is or is not is a moot point by now. Nothing short of a bloody second American World Watts riots will displace him.

 

The questions still are censored.gif .(for my safety)

I don't think it is moot at this point. We have the Constitution. We still have the foundation.

 

We are facing a bloody American war. United we Stand, Divided we Fall.

 

This is our now. Our moment in time to stop this.

 

What I like most of all.....we're still [for the moment] able to politely argue our points on this forum. I may have said this before, but, I don't give a rats patoot, where the Usurper was born....or who spawned him. I care that he is destroying our Republic at every turn....and whatever causes him pain, discomfort or real loss; is beautiful. The fact that he is part of a cog in a large progressive "Borg" matters not a whit. I want attack on every & all fronts, until he & his cabal are drained of energy, money, power & influence....but not life.....I want him to wander the streets of progressive hell in Chicago, or Detroit, as a broken vagrant...and with every passing human saying, "Dear God...what is that thing?" [Oops..reference to The Princess Bride]

 

Seriously, we need an all out effort just to prevent the dead from voting him in again. No stone should be unturned. No avenue should be too sacred or neglected. To do so mirrors the old GOP, the Rovian purists, who think, that only their conservative is acceptable. Scorched earth, baby!

I hear ya Rheo but realistically its not gonna happen now. The ballot box is our only hope AND we also have to sweep out Pelosi, Reid, and dozens of others. As Rush said today the Country cannot afford any Democrat any more.

(Amazing how many are still oblivious)

If it doesn't happen here on this issue....what is the next one that will be overlooked and poo hooed? The pile of poo hoo is stacking up.

 

The ballet box is our hope. Let us make sure that those that are going to vote in 2012 at least have "the facts".

Can't force them to believe them, but seed planting is a start. Not so much here as you all get it...but the presentation to those that don't yet see...is important.

 

The words you use to describe "the enemy"...puts up walls around the ears. Not going to hear a thing.

 

Breitbart was brilliant in his CPAC speech. Had to ponder it a tad, but know thy enemy, keep an open mind and clear emotions, and those who are false will reveal. And can be revealed in a manner that did not strip them of dignity of personhood, but stripped them by the manner and character of their agenda.

I want to thank you for your spirited defense, @Rheo!

We are asked to remove a usurper & his cronies....all "post-Americans" wanting a failure of the Republic, as envisioned for over two & a quarter centuries. We are used to external attack & can't grasp that there are people willing to destroy our way of life & bring us into an ideology that has failed multiple times....from within. The external threats [in the last couple of centuries] required blood, death, loss & sacrifice....we cannot allow these admitted socialists & progressives to enslave our children & grandchildren. It is our watch, and we may have to be uncomfortable, and even bleed or die for our beliefs. Our task is monumental...we no longer have a "fourth estate" committed to freedom. They have been co-opted, but we have "the net" which has already supplanted print media....and in some respects television....we have talk radio, but more than anything, we have each other, and we need to be cohesive. ANYTHING that works should be used. Conservatives are used to "playing fair" & it isn't working. We need to stay legal, but let's not continue to bring a knife to a gun fight. Primary the flakes out of government, push for resolution on any scandal, deny all attempts to legislate by the executive & progressive judicial branch. obstruct & obfiscate.....sue, badger, litigate, protest, communicate & vote. Keep score. No more pansy a** fair game cr*p. If Obama is vulnerable on any front....pursue, pursue, pursue! Get Valerie Jarrett out! Get Moo gone & out of our business! Investigate & jail Soros!

 

OK.....I've got to have a cigarette.....and I don't even smoke.....

Herman Cain nixes appearance on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

 

 

A spokeswoman for Herman Cain confirmed this morning that the former GOP presidential candidate was approached by ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” to appear on this season’s competition

.

But Cain nixed the idea. “He can’t dance in an eight-count. He can only dance in a nine-count,” said Lisa Reichert, Cain’s executive assistant.

Nine-count. Get it? 9-9-9.Scissors-32x32.png

I think we got our signals a little mixed here. I was referring to the fact that the 0 will not be removed from office now (before the election) because of several factors. There is no way "they" will let America's first black President be removed and "they" control the press, media and certain minds.

In the first place "They" still also control much of Congress and the courts..

 

I agree on all counts that he MUST go.

I am all for keeping the pressure up, the investigations up, the truth willing out - and anything else.. No body is more disturbed about what is happening to our Country, our Constitution and our children than I.

I don't think annyone here would disagree time for him to go.

My take with all that is going on, and what is coming down the road, sooner than later, why some people obsess on this, is beyond me.

Here's why [blurbs & Links]:

 

Arrest of Mexican cartel boss/recipient of DOJ guns & money

 

This is GREAT news for everyone in America and Mexico, including Mr. Holder — yet I don’t hear anything from the media. A Google search yielded just three actual posts on this subject.

 

Thank you LA Times for reporting this, but this is another case that confirms my suspicions: If the AP doesn’t write about it the majority of the Old Media will ignore it.

Final Obamacare rule already law

 

The bottom line is this: “Accordingly, the amendment to the interim final rule with comment period amending 45 CFR 147.130(a)(1)(iv) which was published in the Federal Register at 76 FR 46621-46626 on August 3, 2011, is adopted as a final rule without change.” [Emphasis added.]

 

Translation: The Obama administration Friday afternoon put into federal law the very regulation that drew objections from almost 200 Catholic bishops, some 50 religiously affiliated colleges and universities, 65 North American bishops of Orthodox churches, numerous other Jewish, Evangelical and Lutheran leaders, and even some liberals — and without changing so much as a comma.

Holder/Issa battle @ Fast & Furious: Issa blinks

 

.....and so they squared off, and for any of you who wondered which man would blink first the answer has been revealed—Issa blinked, and gave Holder & Co. a time extension for turning over the documents.

 

Keep in mind, that throughout the time the back and forth has been taking place, the DOJ has given the House Oversight Committee just 6,000 documents, but they’ve provided their internal IG with 80,000 plus. The bottom line: time hasn’t been the issue, rather, the refusal to comply has. Nevertheless, Issa has given in and provided Holder with more time anyway. And to make matters worse, as of today the extension has no time limit on it.

So as it stands, Holder has from now till the cows come home to play it his way.

 

http://biggovernment...ges-for-holder/

 

Edited to add: I couldn't find the posts & links from several sites; about the belief that Boehner has his foot on the brakes of Fast & Furious, that a "fix" is already in & that we won't ever know what Boehner gave up, until after the elections.

@SrWoodchuck, from the link in your post a comment from someone, archer52:

 

Scissors-32x32.png

We lost the argument a long time ago over whether or not the government has the power to regulate your healthcare. What are seeing now is the accelerated final push from an administration so far Left that even FDR would blush at its arrogance and tyrannical positions.

Scissors-32x32.png

ends with

 

Scissors-32x32.pngWe've seen this before. Steyn points out the historical relationship between state and religion. The type of person we see in Obama and his ilk this world has dealt with since the beginning of humanity. Sometimes we drive the offender away. Most times, the offender drives the society into deeper servitude. Once won, the State rarely gives up ground without revolution. As Steyn points out, no matter how abusive it was in its establishment, the King is still a head of a church.

 

And that is how it works.

I am waiting for the ACLU and other liberal groups to come out about this as a seperation of Church and State issue. They are all poised to jump in when anyone dares to publicly display Christmas ornaments, or have the temerity to have a Christian symbol as part of a city seal, or, God forbid, post the Ten Commandments in a courthouse.

 

Further proof that liberals are hypocrites.

'Act of Valor' Premiere Enlists Navy SEAL Talent Showcased in Film

Alex Ben Block

2/14/12

 

act_of_valor_premiere_parachuter.jpg

 

“Nobody from Hollywood wanted us to make it,” filmmaker Scott Waugh tells THR, after SEALs parachuted onto Sunset Boulevard.. “That’s why we ended up funding it ourselves and finding private equity and why we really made a truly independent film with this.”

 

Six Navy SEALs dropped out of the night sky over Hollywood on Monday, parachuting onto the red carpet in front of the Arclight Theater for the premiere of Act of Valor. Now the question is whether audiences will turn out beginning Friday for a movie about Navy SEALs that has no stars with name recognition, that isn’t based on a popular book and isn’t the latest installment in a franchise.

 

What Act of Valor does offer is intense action packed story about real terrorist threats based on true stories starring actual Navy Seals.

I hereby propose the following regulations, just to be fair:

 

1) Atheists must pay for leatherbound copies of the King James Bible for their employees.

2) Orthodox Jews must pay for memberships in the Pork Spareribs of the Month club for their employees.

3) Jainist Hindus must pay for steak dinners for their employees.

4) wahabist muslims must pay for crosses and rosaries for their employees.

5) PETA and the ASPCA must buy genuine mink coats for all their employees, both men and women.

 

... if any of this sounds ridiculous to you, then ask yourself: What kind of a warped mind tells a Catholic employer that he MUST pay for his employees to have sterilization, contraceptives, and abortions, all of which are normally forbidden by the Church?
