Quote Of The Day — September 2, 2013

. “Rights” are a moral concept — the concept that provides a logical transition from the principles guiding an individual’s actions to the principles guiding his relationship with others — the concept that preserves and protects individual morality in a social context — the link between the moral code of a man and the legal code of a society, between ethics and politics.

German TV Outs Obama and Erdogan

Erdogan not only has been the main supplier of arms to the Islamic jihadists fighting in Syria, he has allowed jihadists from 40 different countries to freely pass through Turkey on their way to Syria, and he is treating the wounded jihadists in Turkish hospitals. Of course, you may remember that Obama used Benghazi as the point of origin from which Ambassador Stevens transferred thousands of weapons to Turkey which they in turn have been supplying to the jihadists.

But the first contours began emerging within hours of Obama’s announcement. … Continue reading

A Sunday Feel Good Story

Old Guy and a Bucket of Shrimp It happened every Friday evening, almost without fail, when the sun resembled a giant orange and was starting to dip into the blue ocean. Old Ed came strolling along the beach to his favorite pier. Clutched in his bony hand was a bucket of shrimp. Ed walks out to the end of the pier, where it seems he almost has the world to himself. The glow of the sun is a golden bronze now. Everybody’s gone, except for a few joggers on the beach. Standing out on the end of the pier, Ed … Continue reading

The Next Time You Hear THIS…….

…..” We have MORE full-time workers than 2007″, hit them over the head with THIS. From Investors Business Daily.com By Jed  Graham   ObamaCare Cuts Low-Wage Workweek Near Record Low Here’s something worth paying attention to this Labor Day: The workweek in low-wage industries has fallen back to the historic lows seen at the depths of  the recession. The White House and like-minded economists have disputed the notion that  ObamaCare is having a meaningful impact on work hours by noting that the  private-sector workweek has recovered pretty much back to where it was in 2007,  before the economy tanked. But that view … Continue reading

Common Sense on Syrian Involvement

25 Quotes About The Coming War With Syria That Every American Should See By Michael Snyder (The Economic Collapse Blog |  Original Link) If Barack Obama is going to attack Syria, he is going to do it without the support of the American people, without the approval of Congress, without the approval of the United Nations, and without the help of the British.

Downplay Party?

Here is Governor Pence of Indiana.  His message is straightforward. What I want you to focus on is … the word “Republican(s).”  Now image how powerful this message would be if the word “Republican(s)” was not heard.  Just eliminate it. Perhaps a wider audience would listen or at least be open to the message.

Quiz Question:  Can you cite the line that is my favorite in this video?  haha … Continue reading

US Congressmen From Texas To Introduce Bill To Over-ride Pentagon on Fort Hood Shooting Victims

From the Examiner: Texas lawmakers are about to introduce the “Honoring the Fort Hood Heroes Act.” (HFHHA) The HFHHA would change the “workplace violence” label the Obama administration put on it and change it to an act of terror. That would give the victims the same benefits any other soldier gets when he is killed or wounded in battle. It’s bad enough when you are victimized by someone who would not have been there if their government wasn’t so inept that they didn’t stop Hassan a full 2 years before the Ft Hood shooting but it’s doubly bad when your country turns it’s back … Continue reading
