To Retire Our National Debt, We Must Retire Obama

David LimbaughBy David Limbaugh

Everyone but the blind and reckless agrees that the United States faces a dire financial crisis. But only one of the two major political parties is offering a plan that has a reasonable chance of averting this crisis and restoring the nation to financial health.

Obama’s ever-changing proposals, allegedly designed to tackle the problem, simply could not work. One of the following must be true: He doesn’t agree that the crisis is grave, doesn’t understand that his policies can’t work, doesn’t have the same vision about America as most of us, or doesn’t intend for his policies to work. Some people believe he’s intentionally damaging America, because they believe he’s too smart not to know that we face a crisis and that his policies can’t work.

I don’t pretend to comprehend the inner child of his past that apparently impels him to pursue this current path of destruction. My educated guess is that his leftist ideology blinds him to the inefficacy of failed liberal prescriptions but also that this same ideology tells him that if things don’t get appreciably better, then that’s OK, too, because America’s had more than its fair share of prosperity anyway.

Think about it. Through every fiber of his being runs a sense of injustice Continue reading

US default could be disastrous choice for economy

Does any one think that the recession is over, or a Depression is just around the corner, well at this rate it is inevitable for total destruction.

WASHINGTON – The United States has never defaulted on its debt and Democrats and Republicans say they don’t want it to happen now. But with partisan acrimony running at fever pitch, and Democrats and Republicans so far apart on how to tame the deficit, the unthinkable is suddenly being pondered.

The government now borrows about 42 cents of every dollar it spends. Imagine that one day soon, the borrowing slams up against the current debt limit ceiling of $14.3 trillion and Congress fails to raise it. The damage would ripple across the entire economy, eventually affecting nearly every American, and rocking global markets in the process.

A default would come if the government actually failed to fulfill a financial obligation, including repaying a loan or interest on that loan. The government borrows mostly by selling bonds to individuals and governments, with a promise to pay back the amount of the bond in a certain time period and agreeing to pay regular interest on that bond in the meantime.

GOP voters in early states embrace a Trump bid

(President Barack Obama has launched his re-election bid in a low-key manner). Any one who believes this is awful stupid, dumb, lacks a brain you name it you won’t be wrong, Obama has campaigned since he raised his hand in January of 2009, he does not care what is happening, he is more worried about 2012, if you have not noticed, he has spent more time in Air Force One then any other President, and we can’t forget his wife doing the same think in her Private plane, to think about what is happening other than getting to be a two term, I will leave this open to your comment.

WHO really is the President of this Country, Obama’s czars, his wife, the Democrats, or is there some one else that the American people don’t know about?? It can’t be Obama, he is very seldom there to see what is going on, like they say in court, if you did not hear it or see it direct at the time, it is not admissible, and can not be excepted as fact.

WASHINGTON – Out with Sarah. In with The Donald.

President Barack Obama has launched his re-election bid in a low-key manner, but the Republican Party’s search for a challenger seems stranger by the day.

GOP celebrities like Sarah Palin aren’t getting much buzz. Mainstream candidates like Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty aren’t getting much traction. It’s people once considered highly unlikely to compete seriously for the party’s nomination who are creating big stirs in early voting states, a reflection of an unformed and uncertain GOP presidential field.

Republican activists in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina appear deeply intrigued by, and open to, a run by Donald Trump, the publicity-loving business tycoon and host of NBC’s “The Apprentice,” even as he perpetuates falsehoods about Obama’s citizenship and questions the legitimacy of his presidency.

“I hear more and more people talking about Donald Trump,” said Glenn McCall, Republican Party chairman Continue reading

Chicago school bans homemade lunches, the latest in national food fight

By Liz Goodwin
Mon Apr 11, 12:29 pm ET

Students who attend Chicago’s Little Village Academy public school get nothing but nutritional tough love during their lunch period each day. The students can either eat the cafeteria food–or go hungry. Only students with allergies are allowed to bring a homemade lunch to school, the Chicago Tribune reports.

“Nutrition wise, it is better for the children to eat at the school,” principal Elsa Carmona told the paper of the years-old policy. “It’s about … the excellent quality food that they are able to serve (in the lunchroom). It’s milk versus a Coke.”

But students said they would rather bring their own lunch to school in the time-honored tradition of the brown paper bag. “They’re afraid that we’ll all bring in greasy food instead of healthy food and it won’t be as good Continue reading

Chicago school bans some lunches brought from home

By Bob L.
April 11 2011

Come on PEOPLE when are you going to stand up and have a back bone to fight what is going on in this country, if you can’t see that this country is almost a NANNY STATE RUN BY DICTATORS LIKE WHAT IS GOING ON IN LIBYA, you are going to wonder what happen to a FREE Country.

“Nutrition wise, it is better for the children to eat at the school,” (it is all about the money they can raise, not health)Carmona said. “It’s about the nutrition and the excellent quality food that they are able to serve (in the lunchroom). It’s milk versus a Coke. But with allergies and any medical issue, of course, we would make an exception.”

For many CPS parents, the idea of forbidding home-packed lunches would be unthinkable. If their children do not qualify for free or reduced-price meals, such a policy would require them to pay $2.25 a day for food they don’t necessarily like.

To encourage healthful eating, Chicago school doesn’t allow kids to bring lunches or certain snacks from home — and some parents, and many students, aren’t fans of the policy

A Little Village Academy student cringes at an enchilada dish served at his school. Many students throw away their entrees uneaten and say they would rather bring food from home. The school, though, does not allow students to bring in their own lunches, unless they have a medical condition or a food allergy.
