Is it possible? Will the newly-elected House actually take a serious look at what is IMO, the route cause of our illegal immigration crisis? That cause is the infamous "Anchor Baby" provision that some believe is in the 14th Amendment. It allows anyone born in this country, even of parents (or a single female) here illegally, to become full citizens, entitled to all the free govt. goodies we have, and then some. And, as if that weren't enough, this "new citizen" now has the "right" to invite it's whole family here to help it enjoy all the goodies. This is why every young illegal female you see is either pregnant or pushing a bunch of new kids around in a tax payer-funded stroller. If they're not already pregnant when they sneak in, it's their very first objective.
This law came about because of a "creative interpretation" of the 14th Amendment which was originally intended to make sure that children born of slaves would have all the rights of U.S. citizens. Over the years, and as happens to so many things in the Constitution when a court or politician gets involved, protection for children born of illegals mysteriously appeared in the Amendment. At least to those on the Left. It's an automatic (and free) E-Ticket to all that America has to offer. I know of no other country that gives so much to those who break it's laws by entering illegally and draining it of it's resources.
Today, according to the MSM and those on the Left, there are about 11 million illegals here who came from Mexico and points south. In reality, that number is over 30 million, with thousands more coming in every month. And in spite of what we're told, no one here has a clue as to where they really come from.(middle easterners have been caught coming in disguised as Mexicans)
Suppose a group of people broke into your home, made themselves comfortable, and demanded that you feed them, clothe them, educate them, and care for their medical needs? Oh, and if one of them gave birth while in your home, it automatically became their home. What would you do?
Has anyone seen the weather news today!!! They're predicting a BLIZZARD for the Northeast!! OMG, snow in NY, NJ, PA, clear up through MAINE!!? In December? How could it happen? . I blame George Bush. . Thus far this morning, I've seen story after story about rain and mudslides in L.A., and blizzards in Denver, Chicago, Cleveland and the coming blizzard, as much as 6" to 10" in NYC, Boston and maybe "...as far SOUTH as" Philly.
As far south as Philly? Since when is Philadelphia SOUTH? Oh, when you live in NYC it is, I forgot. Oh, and BTW, it snowed in NC and SE Virginia about 2" to 10", they said in passing. . Well, I'd like to write an Open Letter to the (typically ignorant, NYC, L.A., big city ONLY conscious) weather reporters of America. Here goes... . . Dear Weather Reporting Jerks of 'merica, my name is Schteveo. I live in a small town in Johnson County, NC. At midnight last night I had ZERO snow in my yard. At 8 o'clock this morning, I had 8" of snow in my yard. It's 29 degrees outside, the wind is gusting to 20 mph, and the power keeps going out. It's still snowing, the roads are impassable and may be for several days. . If 8" to 10" of snow in the Northeast is a blizzard, a place that sees snow near that level almost yearly, without doubt...WTF do you think the SAME fucking conditions constitute in places that go YEARS without ANY snow?!! . I know it's hard to see the parallel when you see the world with your eyes covered by your own anal sphincter, but once in a while, come out for air, and look around, the world is a varied and wonderful place, but one man's blizzard, is still another man's blizzard!! BLIZZARD is a static term, within reason.
Yours truly Snowed in Schteveo
PS, It could be several days before I can get to the grocery store, anybody got a good recipe for Miniature Schnauzer?
I ain't gonna lie to you, I had to sit here a minute, trying to decide whether to share this. But then, I thought maybe, just maybe, some idiot liberal troll might look in here and see what "it" is all about. . This is from USS Kearsarge. They left a month early, to go help the Pakistanis after flooding over there last summer. And, recently, they got the word they they've been extended for 6 to 8 weeks. . How many of us go to work a MONTH early, work for 114 DAYS without a day off, stay at work two MONTHS over, all without going home EVER and then have the intestinal fortitude to send this e-mail? And I'm sure this wasn't the only one sent like this to reassure us HERE, that they do "it" for a reason. .
Merry Christmas folks, from the entire Shteveo Family. . . 24 Dec, 0805 (EST +9)
Not that I don’t think about you guys every day, but you understand why I do so more this time of year.
We recently left port after spending 114 days underway. It wasn’t the best port, but I got a couple of good meals and an honest to goodness weekend OFF! I think I’m good to go for quite a while, now.
I got out of my rack this morning, thinking about my fellow service members. Whether they are at sea, on the ground or in the air, we all feel the NEED to be where we are. There are MANY other places we all want to be, but personally, I know where I’m needed. There’s not a one of you that doesn’t understand how another sacrificing for you, can make a difference.
Do me one favor, when you think of me today or the next week, remember that I WANT to be here, so that YOU can be THERE.
I’ve got the watch. Sleep well and Merry Christmas.
Father, husband, son, cousin, friend and shipmate,
Arlen Specter is going out in (moonbatty) style. In his last speech before leaving the Senate he talked about things on which he is an expert. Partisan politics and judicial activism for two examples. . Is it me, or is my memory clear on this worm changing parties a few years back to change the balance of voting power and committee assignments in the Senate? And the Judiciary Committee is just ONE of those committees!! . Specter was, is and will always be a politically opportunistic asshole. He's simply trying to set the path for his future. He'll show up next year as a Reformer for Better Government. . And there are enough stupid jerks in America that some of them will really buy it. . . Schteveo

I'm betting Mr. Ellison won't be that crazy about MY no borders policy! . . Shteveo
I read this 3 times, and it still looks like a cart pulling a horse to me. .

Hell, even the EPA falls back on The Clean Air / Water Act(s) to swing their weight around. . This, my friends, is a bunch of shit, and while I still can, I am saying so!! . Crazier still was the banner for this story. . FCC Gives Government Power to Regulate Web Traffic . . Again, how does that equate to you!?

"The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.
Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few short years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities totally uninhabitable."
Oops! Never mind. This report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the Associated Press and published in the Washington Post - 88 years ago!
This is too funny not to pass on...enjoy AN ACTUAL CRAIG'S LIST AD AN ACTUAL CRAIG'S LIST PERSONALS AD To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last. Date: 2009-05-27, 1 :43 a.m. E.S.T. I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message. First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ...... isn't it?! I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again]. After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful! I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!] I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb ... after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car. Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target. The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.). ;In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky.Have a good day! Thoughtfully yours, Alex
* Parliament also passed tough new banking rules (Adds details, background)
Venezuela's parliament gave President Hugo Chavez decree powers for 18 months on Friday, outraging opposition parties that accused him of turning South America's biggest oil producer into a dictatorship.
The move consolidated the firebrand socialist leader's hold on power after nearly 12 years in office, and raised the prospect of a fresh wave of nationalizations as the former paratrooper seeks to entrench his self-styled "revolution."
Chavez had asked for the fast-track powers for one year, saying he needed them to deal with a national emergency caused by floods that drove nearly 140,000 people from their homes.
But the Assembly, which is dominated by loyalists from his Socialist Party, decided to extend them for a year and a half.
That means the president can rule by decree until mid-2012, and can keep opposition parties out of the legislative process until his re-election campaign is well under way for Venezuela's next presidential vote in December of that year.
The president of parliament, Cilia Flores, said lawmakers must heed the appeals of families afflicted by the floods.
"It is raised to 18 months at the proposal of those immediately affected, the same people who are there relying on Comandante Chavez," she told the Assembly.
"So that they can have their streets, their highways, public services, electricity, everything to live in dignity, we are going to hear these proposals and concerns."
The vote was part of a legislative onslaught to push through bills before a new National Assembly is seated on Jan. 5. Earlier on Friday, parliament passed a law making it easier for the government to nationalize banks and trim their profits. . That, my friends, is US if the election hadn't knocked the wheels off Obama's little red wagon. Chavez is just like Obama, only shorter, without the tan. And skin color aside, scratch either one, they're RED underneath. right down to their bones. . I feel for the people of Venezuela, especially because they aren't as armed as we are. That will make their revolution back to democracy all that much harder. And is it me, or all those things the gub'ment of Venezuela is 'giving' the people, the same kinds of things promised by Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Pol Pot, et al? Here's my question. . Just how many people will Hugo Chavez have to murder to get the streets paved and the lights kept on?! Some millions is my estimate. History usually tallies them by the million, so shall I. . . Schteveo
. The law of unintended consequences bites us in the ass...again. . 13.4 million may owe taxes; ‘Making Work Pay’ tax credit withholding error . As the Senate and House hash out the details of the Bush tax cuts and the extension of unemployment benefits the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) J. Russell George released a statement today stating that 13.4 million may owe unexpected taxes. According to an audit report first filed in November 2009, here: TIGTA Audit President Obama’s “Making Work Pay” tax credit was supposed to allow individuals and couples greater take home pay by reducing the amount of taxes withheld from their pay checks. There was a $400.00 cap for individuals and an $800.00 cap for married couples which filed jointly. The audit completed by the TIGTA states that 13.4 million people failed to have enough taxes taken out of their paychecks, making them vulnerable to owing more in taxes. The “Making Work Pay” tax credit expires on January 1, 2011.
J. Russell George released a statement through the TIGTA site. He said, “The Making Work Pay Credit is a key tax credit designed to increase spending and stimulate the economy, however, many taxpayers who are accustomed to receiving refunds when they file their tax returns may have owed taxes and incurred penalties in 2009 and may yet again in 2010 because they were advanced more of the credit than they were entitled to claim.” . Mr. George continued with his statement, “My office issued a report in November 2009 warning of this possibility and encouraging the IRS to increase outreach and waive penalties for taxpayers who may be negatively affected by the credit. We still believe further actions are needed to ensure no taxpayer is unfairly penalized.” . Non-working, non-counting, inept Idiots. That's the best thing I can imagine to call the clowns who thought this up. First off, who the hell really thought that Joe Average, with a house payment, a working wife, two cars, 2.3 kids and a dog named 'Bob', was going to prosper off a louse sixteen f^%*ing dollars a week?! Secondly, WTF did Bob and his wife do to deserve these idiots? They must be swing voters!! . . Shteveo
Did you ever think you'd see the Commiewood elitists turning on their fake god? If i didn't know better i'd say reality has finally found it's way to the land of make believe. But if there's one thing you won't find in Commiewood, it's reality.
It seems all the former shoe salesmen, waitresses, waiters, and hat-check girls, who got lucky and are now "celebrities" are turning on The One! That's right. After having raised hundreds-of-millions for his election, campaigning all over the place for him, the Marxist-in-Chief has left them wanting, and badly. Only now do these irrelevant losers realize he was totally unqualified to sit in the Oval Office in the first place, something that didn't bother them at all. And only now does it dawn on them that all their money, time, effort, support, and adoration, was perhaps wasted on this young neighborhood agitator. Wow! I for one am totally surprised by all these famous commies turning on their half-black idol.
Of course, it's not because he's totally unqualified for the job. It's not because he's a pathological liar.Nor is it because he's basically a racist. What's got their panties in a knot is the fact that even this outright Marxist isn't far enough to the left to make them happy, something he promised to do while gathering up all their cash. They're not happy that Obummer has been forced to move to the political center, or at least create the illusion that he is. He is a hard-core Marxist and will never be anything else, but he's also very ambitious and wants to get re-elected. He knows his fat-assed wife won't be happy if she has to give up those $200K-per-day vacations with her mom and all their friends, and go back to eating at KFC. IMO, it's really killing Obummer to start acting like a moderate, and especially having to finally sit and talk with Republicans. But his ambition is stronger than his ideology, so he'll do whatever it takes to stay in power.
So if Obummer keeps making deals with the Repubs, and continues talking down to the Leftist elites of Commiewood, who will get their support in 2012? Obviously, it would have to be someone even further to the Left than Barry, and someone who shares their ultra-leftist mentality. Hmm, let's see. I've got it. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, GEORGE SOROS...
I don't know about you guys, but even after all these years, i'm still a big fan of the Seinfeld show, even though they're just old re-runs now. It's strange watching an episode for the 15th or so time and still LMAO. And, as with all those old sitcoms, there are certain episodes that really stand out. One of my favorite Seinfelds was the one where Costanza's father Frank, instigated by Krammer of course, renews Festivus, a holiday he invented, one which is celebrated by telling your friends and family all the lousy things they did during the year. The idea of first inventing, then celebrating, some goofy holiday was really, really funny. Of course, we had no idea back then that someone would actually do that (see: Kwanza) and be taken seriously. Well, by some anyway.
Well, it seems someone has now revised the "holiday" of Festivus. And could you think of a more appropriate place than Mexifornia? What is truly crazy about this story is not that some nitwit would use this fake holiday, but that an even bigger nitwit, a PC'ized Mexifornia bureaucrat, would take it seriously! It actually took a court order to stop it. Yes, reality can be stranger, and funnier, than fiction...
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: . We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce.... I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course. . Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way. . Here is a model separation agreement: . Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes. . We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. . We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them). . We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, and Wall Street. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens. . We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood . . You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security. . We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N.. but we will no longer be paying the bill. . We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find. . You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors. We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. . We'll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute Imagine, I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World. . We'll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag. . Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you Answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.
Sincerely, John J. Wall Law Student and an American
P. S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & Jane Fonda with you.

While most of us are distracted by things our government does, such as gathering pieces of information about us, we are usually oblivious to the fact that private companies are routinely compiling more information about us than the govt. ever could, or would. And when these invasions of our privacy are brought to our attention, why is it only the govt. that bears the brunt of our anger?
Today, we are all the victims of an out-of-control advertising industry. Not one of us is safe from this juggernaut which sees our desire for privacy as nothing more than an insignificant and minor detail that gets swept aside by their insatiable greed. We have reached the point where it's no longer possible to look at, or listen to something without being exposed to some type of commercial message, be it direct, indirect, or subliminal. Many cable TV channels now contain more commercials than actual programming! (ie. Fox) All of these commercial messages are being force-fed to us by the same industry that is violating our right to privacy on a massive scale. What we say, what we do, and even what we think, is being tracked. And yes, that includes right here at Annies! (google) As for our computers, one gets the impression they were invented simply to give our private info to the whole world without our consent or even our knowledge. The more safeguards (ie. spam-ware, etc.) we install on our computers, the less effective they seem to be.
So, do we mind this invasion, or have we become so numb to it that we don't even notice any more? Personally, i mind it very much, especially when i find 3 or 4 pounds of catalogs in my mail box every day, (from companies i've never dealt with) and triple that around holiday time. I also mind not being able to watch a TV program without constant interruptions, but that's just me. Are we being overpowered by technology and greed, so much so, that our privacy is no longer relevant?
The Seniors; Let's put seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes. This would correct two things in one motion:
Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks. They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc. They would receive money instead of having to pay it out. They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them. A guard would check on them every 20 minutes. All meals and snacks would be brought to them They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose. They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education...and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally recognized entertainment artists. Simple clothing - ie., shoes, slippers, pj's - and legal aid would be free, upon request. There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with gardens. Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no cost. They would receive daily phone calls. There would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights and protection. The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors and their families from abuse or neglect.
The Criminals: They would receive cold food. They would be left alone and unsupervised. They would receive showers once a week. They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per month. They would have no hope of ever getting out.
When the American people elected a know-nothing, zero-experience, full-blown Marxist to be president, they didn't bother thinking about the potential consequences of their emotionally-based decision. In fact, they weren't thinking at all. This was their chance to rid themselves of all that phony guilt over slavery. Not one of them stopped to think about the fact that the #1 responsibility of the POTUS is to protect and defend the United States, and to represent our country around the world. Not exactly the job for a neighborhood agitator who knew as much about world diplomacy as he did about working for a living. Zero!
After two years in office, and a hundred trips abroad, the only thing Obummer has shown the world is his willingness to bow to just about everyone he meets, like a house-boy on an old Georgia plantation. The world has also seen how easy it is for foreign leaders to make a fool of him due to his complete lack of experience with, and knowledge of, international diplomacy. What message does this send to our many enemies? In a word, WEAKNESS! And when you're surrounded by vicious predators, "any" sign of weakness will embolden them and make them more aggressive, as this article proves. They will test your strength and resolve, which is exactly what Iran, Russia, and N. Korea (and others) have been doing. And what response have they seen from us? None!
This is a very dangerous game. Our enemies know that our military is worn-out and stretched paper-thin fighting two totally unnecessary wars. They also know that we're led by an idiot who has no clue about what's going on outside of DC, and only cares about giving the nations wealth to 13% of it's population. To a predator, that's like ringing the dinner bell...
. Did HE do THAAATT!!?? Yes he did Steve. . Threat of 'Urkel' solves sagging pants problem . A middle school in Tennessee has had enough with the saggy drawers. Teachers there are telling kids with baggy pants to pull them up, or get "Urkeled."
Westside Middle School Principal Bobby White tells TV station WMC the idea is to fight pop culture with pop culture. If boys emulate rappers by letting their pants droop, teachers cinch up their pants using zip ties - sometimes to their armpits.
"Everybody who possibly needed to be Urkeled, they were Urkeled," White said. . The new policy seems to be working at Westside. Teacher Shaka Greene 'Urkeled' up to 80 students a week when the policy first took effect. After five weeks, that number was down to 18 - an 80 percent drop. . This is the funniest thing I've heard in weeks and it's way over do. . . Schteveo

It's probably because she has more bullets in her gun vault than they do.
Although I'm glad Mr. Ospenda did this, he STILL doesn't get that he is ONLY in control of ONE BRANCH of our triune based government. This time he bypassed HIS supporters in the two houses of Congress and just "decided" to go with extending the tax levels we now have. . What concerns me is his ongoing image of the power of that office as that of a King, or worse still, a Fuhrer. He just does NOT get it, and it scares the eee-mortal shit out of me how he arrives at decisions and here's why. . IF he turns his back on HIS supporters and his ideals for political expediency like this, how quickly would he sell the COUNTRY down the river to save his own ass? . "Mr. Obama, we the leaders of the Taliban and Al Queda have planted bombs and germ weapons in 200 places throughout the country. 50 are planted near the White House and your daughter's schools!! Unless you turn over The Great Satan to The Prophet's Love and Protection, we will set off the devices. Allah hu Akbar!!!" . He'd cave in 2.2 seconds without confab or discussion. That's what he did on this and it was INSIDE the country with little to no pressure or discussion that I am aware of! He caved on his basic ideals of income redistribution, one of the driving forces of his life and career, because he was taking public heat from 6 Senators, 50 Congressman and FOX News! . Scary. . .

Is government regulation of the internet on it's way? And if it is, how many minutes after the ink dries do you think we'll be seeing an internet tax?
It's no secret that the insatiably greedy crooks in DC have been salivating over the idea of somehow getting control of the internet. Their main objective is of course, the ability to tax it. When there's the scent of fresh money in the air, these lying crooks would make a Grizzly, (who's sense of smell is 1500 times greater than ours) look like an amateur. And what other thing makes them salivate almost as much as money? CONTROL! The ability to determine what we see and hear.
At this point, one might say, "well, with the Repubs now in control of the House, this probably won't happen". That might be right except for the fact that the Marxist in the Oval Office doesn't bother asking congress for their approval. They just hand him a pen, and he does what he wants, and his hand-picked congress went along. Let's just hope things start to change...
"This year's jump in the PNC CPI can be attributed to rising gold commodity prices, represented by the Five Gold Rings, which went up by 30%, in addition to higher costs for wages and benefits impacting some entertainers," said James Dunigan, managing executive of investments for PNC Wealth Management, which tracks the cost of the goods named in the carol.
The cost of the items jumped despite consumer price inflation of only 1.1%. Of the 12 items, only four were the same price as last year. These are the Partridge in a Pear Tree, the Four Calling Birds, the Six Geese a-Laying and the Eight Maids a-Milking.
The single biggest dollar increase was for the nine ladies dancing, which rose by $820, or 15%.

The case of a New Jersey man who is serving seven years in prison for possessing two locked and unloaded handguns he purchased legally in Colorado is a perfect example of how a law-abiding citizen can unwittingly become a criminal due to vastly differing gun laws among the states, gun rights experts say.
I note the article lists the most draconian anti-gun states as New Jersey, California, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, and New York. I would hazard a guess that Hawaii should be among the group. I'll stay in Texas. ~
We had a saying here in Brooklyn when i was growing up; "three people can keep a secret only if two are dead." Perhaps it wasn't a local saying, but we thought it was since it fit in so well with the local mentality. When we see what's going on with Wikileaks, and other anti-American forces bent on destroying us, it's apparent the nitwits who run our govt. and our "intelligence" agencies didn't grow up in Brooklyn.
With the latest disclosure of documents, it has come to light that there are "well over one Million people in our govt. with a Top Secret security clearance", just like the one Pfc. Manning, the gay little traitor had while he spent years downloading all kinds of top secret information onto his "music" CD devise. Why do so many people have total access to our most important secrets? Well, (and this shouldn't surprise you) no one seems to know. It almost seems like the privilege of having that very high level of clearance is handed out like mini-franks at a DC cocktail party. ("oh, ya mean you don't have one? Come by my office tomorrow and i'll get you one")
Right after WWII, it was said that there were more Communist spies in the British govt. than tea pots. Later on, history proved that statement to be factual. Here in the US, we've heard cries of "McCarthyism" for decades, usually coming from Leftists. They of course, refer to US Sen. Joe McCarthy, a WWII combat vet, who was on a crusade to rid our govt. of Communist spies and sympathizers. The Left always portrays him as a wild nut-case and a loose canon. What they never mention is that to a great extent, he was right. Our govt. at the time, especially the State Dept., was riddled with Communist sympathizers and spies. The so-called entertainment industry (Commiewood) was also loaded with sympathizers. Even back than! The result was that the Russians knew more about what we were doing than we did. Is that still the case?
