The GOP’s ‘supposed’ leader within the Senate crushed the valiant efforts of Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, and freedom-loving patriots absorbed another salvo designed to destroy our constitutional republic. Apparently, we know the price for zipper-lip McConnell’s treason.
Two billion dollars is the price for the latest Judas-like abandonment in the ‘ObamaCare-OBoehnerCare-O’ConnellCare’ saga. With the Bluegrass Backstabbing, the Minority Leader has joined the Senatorial Hall of Shame that includes Mary Landrieu (Louisiana Purchase), Ben Nelson (Cornhusker Kickback), Patrick Leahy, Chris Dodd, Max ‘ObamaCare is a train-wreck’ Baucus, and others, in deploying legislated euthanasia.
"We've got to get the Rockefeller Republicans out of the party," a fellow told me in Minnesota recently. Or was it Arizona? Or Wilkes-Barre, Pa.? Actually, I think it was all three. I hear it all the time as I travel around the country speaking to conservative groups.
For those of you who don't know, the Rockefeller Republicans -- named after the former New York governor Nelson Rockefeller -- were the liberal, mostly Northeastern wing of the Republican Party.
Vladimir Putin's granting of asylum to Edward Snowden makes it clear President Obama's "reset" with the former Soviet Union is a shambles. He really has no idea of how to handle the former KGB head.
Snowden won a one-year asylum from Russia, which he can renew annually — if Russia lets him. Upon gaining the right to stay, the fugitive American quietly left Moscow's Shereetyevo Airport for an undisclosed location.
Everyone knows that racism exists, probably throughout the world. Much of it stems from ignorance, and perhaps almost all of it is caused by one's previous experience with those of another race. But, it does not have to be so. Solutions for overcoming a racist feeling is simply to know and admit to oneself that all people of any race are not of the same nature, and therefore should not all be lumped together as being undesirable. There exists certain sorry, worthless and evil persons in every race...every race. And, there are wonderful, good and beautiful people in every race also. If someone we know is a low down, lying, cheating thief, pedophile, rapist or whatever. Don't blame everyone of his race as being the same. This is sheer foolishness and is ignorance on the part of the racist.
At present with the world's population is well past the 7 billion mark, Adherents.com shows that there are 2.1 billion people who claim to be Christian.
The resignation of Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett couldn't have come at a better time. His disgraceful grade-fixing scandal is the perfect symbol of all that's wrong with the federal education schemes peddled by Bennett and his mentor, former GOP Gov. Jeb Bush: phony academic standards, crony contracts, big-government and big-business collusion masquerading as "reform."
Bennett stepped down Thursday after the Associated Press reported that he had meddled with charter school accountability ratings in Indiana last fall while serving as that state's schools superintendent. The beneficiary of his intervention? Big GOP donor and charter school operator Christel DeHaan, who has forked over nearly $3 million to Republicans (including $130,000 to Bennett).
