No kidding. Either be on the crony side of things or just drop out of the middle class. This is America today.
This is the truth and sometimes it’s one that it is hard for “conservatives” to come to terms with. The Pentagon is filled to the gills with waste and inefficiency, it is big government.
The military and defense, defense, is enumerated as a role for the government according to the Constitution. But the key word is “defense.”
But even without a purely defensive military there are plenty of areas to cut, starting with the army of civilian employees.
Oh hooray, the Chicago politics will linger on still. Expand the crony political machine. Get more people hooked on welfare of various forms. Lawyer it up and make sure that voter ID, a simple requirement, is fought at every turn. (I wonder why some fight this anti-corruption effort so fervently?) The Alinskyites aren’t just going to go away. They want to infect all of our system with their urban machine tactics.
Big government. Big dependence. Big politicians. Big corruption.
This is Versailles.
I am extremely fortunate to be able to do what I do for a living. Most of the time I get to write about the news and work on other business projects from my base in the Shire of the Blue Ridge. Broadband is a beautiful thing. But every once in a while I leave the shire and go into Washington DC for meetings.
I enjoy going believe it or not. There are many interesting and smart people who live and work there.
Heck, why not 3 times?
I have to tell you, the election is rolling up on us pretty quickly and I’d say we’ve got a real voter fraud problem on our hands. One that could undermine the very legitimacy of the system.
We’ve seen bits and pieces of what is going on lately but one can pretty safely assume that there is MUCH more going on on the voter fraud front than we know about.
Yet we’ve been told for years that voter fraud isn’t a problem.
Half a billion dollars for US taxpayers to pay for Obama’s spin, his propaganda, his effort to control the “narrative.”
This is just flat out abuse of the taxpayer. Take our money to sell things like Obamacare and drone wars and “stimulus” and then charge us for these boneheaded ideas too.
This is part of the great Washington scam also. How many spin people does the administration need? Oh, this many…
The puritans and the cronies join together all the time to restrict the freedom and liberty of Americans.
Drugs should be a non-issue in the USA. Free people have a right to treat themselves and yes, even indulge themselves as they see fit. We are supposed to be a free people. This is supposed to be a free country.
There is so much good that could be done with psychedelics, marijuana, kratom, other restricted drugs, in terms of treatment.
This fight is almost literally right in my back yard. Just down the road a couple of miles or so the “no pipeline” signs start popping up.
Is private property private or not? Just because a company is big and connected does that mean that it just gets to do whatever it wants if your property happens to be in their way?
I say no. Of course not.
Our current governor (and key Clinton ally it should be mentioned) disagrees with me.
Well, his above statement is correct.
The White House is acting like it was surprised or something. The Senate had made it pretty clear that it wouldn’t go along with the president on letting the Saudis off the hook. It’s not like it was down to 1 or 2 votes or something.
Lame duckhood has got to be painful. The president didn’t get to nominate someone for the most recent Supreme Court vacancy and now this very public dissing from Congress.
The page is turning in Washington.
Why, seriously why, did the president veto this? Is he thinking past his presidency and to any corporate boards or positions at the UN he might like to be a part of? It’s got to be part of it because he knows he’s likely to be overridden.
An excellent video. How much better would the debates have been had Gary Johnson and Jill Stein been on the stage too?
This money (US taxpayer money) often just goes to the crony classes within these countries. Those positioned to take advantage of the USA’s largesse do well. The “people” often do less well. Especially when considering that much of this money goes to arms. (American arms.)
When it comes to military aid both the Military Industrial Complex lobbyists and the lobbyists of favored countries team up to make sure American taxpayers continue to pay the bills for their clients.
This is diabolical. David Brock, head of the de facto Ministry of Information Media Matters and all around crony apologist for Soros, Obama, and Clinton has a crazy thing going according to this report. Talk about churning a book of business. This is how to get rich in Washington DC.
What world is Obama living in that he can say this with a straight face? Aside from a few websites, the Wall Street Journal, the odd talk radio show and Fox there is NO conservative media. (And even this media is relatively new.) Everything else is decidedly not “conservative” and has been that way for generations. “Liberals” (really statists) control most of the media including NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, MSNBC, Bloomberg (mostly), CNBC (for the most part), CNN,
