Weeks ago, the Iranians were just “weeks away” from having sufficient material for a Nuclear device. By giving them six months, the administration ensured the would be able to garner sufficient material for more than one device. The agreement did not guarantee inspectors could see “all the sites”. I guess that was the silent way of saying, “If you like your nuke, you can keep your nuke. Period”

The balance will come when people recognize the nature of the criminal element. Who makes up the majority of the criminal element (demographics of those incarcerated)? What ethnic societal conditions cause those folks to choose to be criminals? Do police really “profile” certain groups? Do those groups deserve “a little special attention”? What conditions in the homes of those criminals contribute to their decision to break the law. Might it be the absence of a father in the home? Might it be the nature of the neighborhood in which those folks choose to live?
Yes, there has to be a balance in how the police defend themselves. I have yet to see bazookas used in any of the Chicago neighborhoods. The answer to crime is not a nationalized police State.

The problem with the trend toward militarization of the police at all levels is this. The anointed one can start a civil incident through several conditions that exist and then lay the blame on the “extremists”. He is demonizing the “Exremist Tea Pary” with the help of Harry Reid and Pelosi who enjoy stirring up the liberal masses since they have lost all ability to think logically or critically. So the conservative, “bible thumping”, gun-toting, extremist evangelistic, veteran becomes the “enemy” in the minds of the population that counts to Barry.
Under “martial law”, Barry can do anything he wants and will have the approval of the “majority” (that would be the useful idiots). Now the crux of the problem becomes one of an after-action summary report in which the National Guard and Law Enforcement folks (duly inflitrated and influenced by the Executiver order, “the DHs Partnership”) will use to explain; “WE WERE ONLY FOLLOWING ORDERS”. Individually, they will have saved their skin, but collectively will have acted precisely as the German SS did last century. They will have ensured the final destruction of the Republic.
So what is the answer to the correct balance between allowing our local cops to protect themselves from criminals,......and not allowing them to become too powerful?

Its all a part of Executive Order of 12 October 2012 called the Department of Homeland Security Partnership. The DHS is the “lead” organization of fifteen federal agencies including FEMA and the EPA as well as all law enforcement agencies of every State, Town, City, County and Tribal Entity. This “Internal Security Force” was promised in his speed in Colorado in 2008″. He never does anything without warning us people who “cling to our guns and religion”.
If you want to test that, just erect a Cross in your front yard, or have your child play with a nerf ball gun in you front yard. With 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point ammo and 2700 MRAPs, his INTERNAL SECURITY FORCE is a reality.
Yep, consider the country FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED. By the way, the ACA alias Obamacare, does not cover enemas so the nurse is going to have to slap the crap out of you. Just one more gift from the Anointed One. Like it yet?

It looks like it is a three-way tie in the “Will the Real Anti-Christ Please Stand UP” contest, between Achmanutjob, Lil’ Kim, and the Anointed One. The competition is stiff and the contest is heating up. My money is on the “anointed One”. And the new US sodomites have a new slogan. Barack Ahkbar!

All the while, Barry is pumping $85 Billion dollars of debt EVERY Month into the hands of the big investors to float the Stock Market, and there little or nothing of that filtering into the main street economy. That is another 1.2 Trillion dollars a year in debt. Way to go Barry. Your fat cats love that QE3 alright.
March 20, 2013 at 8:18pm
Well, there is an old special ops trick that they don’t count on (and it originated long, long ago in a far away land). A concerted program of overwhelming (Cloward Piven anyone), with a massive amount of false information tends to make some folks run in circles chasing ghosts. Think about how many people
there are of a conservative persuasion who are on the net.
I can see it now. Knock at the door. “Mr Jones we understand you have an arsenal of weapons and are planning a violent attack using your WWII Tank and your militia. Open the door now!”
Mr. Jones, age 86, goes to the door, his wheelchair being led by his seeing eye dog. Zoom in on DHS agent’s face covered with egg.
you forget the fact that they will just kick the door in and shoot the home owner. Later the police will be cleared of all wrong doing, and its on to the next house.

As long as citizens are kept informed by the media as to what is really going on (the TRUTH), there is no problem. Of course, if the government is evasive, divisive, deceptive and not transparent, then there is a problem. And a key signal that trouble is on the horizon might be a government effort to disarm citizens, or the militarization of local police forces under a federal agency such as the DHS in the guise of a “partnership” of some sort.
So, the question is now, “Do we have a problem yet”?
March 9, 2013 at 12:43am
One simple little calculation is rather revealing. We currently have trillion dollar deficits, yet the Fed is pumping $85 BN times 12 months, or 1,020,000,000,000 (1 trillion) ostensibly into the “economy” but that 1 trillion does not circulate deep enough into the economy to stimulate it much. It is getting siphoned off quickly and benefits the mucky-muck big investors and not the economy.
Now, let us be really stupid and try this crazy approach. This is how a critical thinking person who has not quite lost his mind might approach the sequestration problem of $85 BN in cuts.
“This month, instead of shoving $85 Billion dollars up the Banks’ accounts, we will cover the programs and agencies that would have felt pain from Sequestration, by using that QE $85 Billion. Lets do the difficult math. $85 Billion minus $85 Billion equals zero. Yep, no cost overrun there.”
Problem Solved. No political hype, no hollow threatening, just a simple solution to a non problem.
Unfortunately, Barry was able to create so much noise, hype, smoke, bovine feces and gnashing of teeth that people have taken leave of their senses. And the administration has developed a myopic approach to “stimulating” big investors and NOT THE ECONOMY using Quantitative Easing.
Learn how Quantitative Easing really works and you will be a believer.

The current unemployment compensation methodology is the least efficient possible. It would be far more productive and stimulating to allow those who have been unemployed for 26 weeks to keep their unemployment check, call it a stimulus check, and allow the individual to go back to their former employer to be hired back for their former salary minus the stimulus check.
The small business would get about a 47 percent discount on the salary for a person in North Carolina who had been earning $36,000 annually. Allow this arrangement for a predetermined period with the employer share of pay gradually increasing over an eighteen month to two year period. Or continue the arrangement until unemployment returns to an acceptable level.
In this arrangement, the flow of money is instant, and there is a great deal of financial leverage for the state, federal government and the small business. In this particular example, the employee’s salary is returned to his original salary and the “stimulus check” is $1400 while the small business cost of this employee goes from $3178 per month to only $1700 (including withholding).
New business start-ups could be qualified to participate and that would put the money in the hands of the formerly unemployed and small businesses. This could be done on a national, state, or county level as an economic emergency procedure.
However, this is too simple for politicians to understand and there is no pork for them to steal.
How about we stop taking money from people who earn it and giving it to people who don't. That would erase the unemployment rate overnight.

What a wicked web we weave when we practice to deceive. Yep, kind of hard to remember all the lies.
Sequestration was just an economic landmine set to go off between the election and the inauguration in case Barry was not elected. Now he has to pretend he had nothing to do with it. But, his fingerprints are all over it, so its time to fess up.

It is tragic that the state of this park, with the help of Barry and the liberal progressives and Atheists/agnostics, reflects the current state of Christianity in the United States. In “Suicide of a Superpower”, Pat Buchanan goes into some length with facts and figures that show a direct correlation between the declining numbers of citizens who identify themselves as “church-going” Christians and the rise in crime statistics and divorces.
Except that crime rates have been dropping since their peak in the 1980’s, while commitment to religion has continued to steadily decline.
@Xylliab_of_the_Znarghh http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/astonishing-argument-why-violent-crime-rates-have-dropped I would also argue that figure manipulation is to be blamed also. You don't think law enforcement books are cooked just like those of the evil capitalists? You are just another ignorant sheep comparing apples to oranges incorrectly to support your agenda. You really think our country being less religious would make it less crime ridden? I'm not religious but even I know how illogical that sounds.
Crime rates have not gone down. The definition to get on the official crime stats has. It use to be every crime was a "crime" not so any more. To make departments and government officials look better every thing is categorized today. Rape use to be rape, not so today. The only stats that go into most "rape" Is a stranger raping a woman. Taken out is child rape, Date rape, so on and so on. Same with crime.

Kind of ironic how Barry decries the horrid fallout from the evil Sequestration of $85 Billion (which he falsely attributes to Republicans).
It would be most entertaining if some journalist (if that species is not truly extinct) would ask him this question in the White House Newsroom, “Mr. President, we understand from your statements recently, that you are truly concerned about the potentially horrendous impact of the $85 Billion in cuts from the Sequestration. Don’t you think it would be nice right now to have the $787 Billion you spent on the Porkulus bill?”
I believe Barry might simultaneously hiccup, pass gas and disappear up his own fundamental orifice. Either that or we would see some truly amazing tap dancing.
"What difference does it make?"
Well, I guess "Lies" don't matter?
Let's see, I believe it was Saul Alinsky who said, "The ends justify the means".
In other words, if you can get away with "Lies", by the media, and others, you can make voters believe the "Lies".
Fast and Furious, Shovel Ready Jobs, Obamacare, Benghazi, Sequestor, etc.
All of these are full of "Lies"!!!
Julie, it does make a difference if a president "Lies".
Impeach this Socialist Now.

Notice to Creditors:
Due to the Sequestration and due to the administration’s threat that there may be a delay in taxpayer refunds, I/we have instituted the following policy for payment of financial obligations:
Any creditor or supplier of services or goods that is associated with conservative values and which can demonstrate it has not supported the Democratic party,or voted for Barry Soetoro (AKA Barack Obama) but which has supported Conservative values and organizations will be paid immediately on presentation of invoices, statements or bills.
Any creditor or supplier of services or goods that is associated with liberal values or has supported the Democratic party, liberal organizations or which has liberal policies, or if an individual, voted for Barry Soetoro (AKA Barack Obama, the current resident of the White House), will not be paid until all others have been paid and then, not until all federal and state income tax refunds have been received.
Further, future services or goods will only be provided to customers who are Conservatives and who hold conservative values.
I/we regret that this change in policy is necessary, but it is done to send a message to those who would, through their gullibility, laziness, or stupidity, destroy the foundation of the United States of America. That foundation being dedication, hard work, Judeo Christian moral values, sanity and the ability to think critically.

The two major objectives of both George Soros and his puppet are; 1, weaken the US economy and, 2, weaken the US Military. The timing of the sequestration was simply to lay a financial landmine that would go off between the 2012 election and Barry Soetoro’s departure should he not win the election. Barry does not care about the economy, and his $787 Bn porkulus was his first assault on the economy. Little, if any, of the porkulus dollars found their way to small businesses.
Barry’s march to socialism is only partially blocked. The two obstacles Barry must overcome are the middle class and small business. So far, he has done a remarkable job of weakening both. The real coup will come when Israel takes on Iran. Few are thinking about the sequence of events which will quickly follow that event.
The world markets will crash, gold will double in value, gas will shoot to at least $7.50 a gallon, if not higher. About a half million radical Islamic Jihadists will come out from under their rocks in England, France, and Spain answering the call for a global Jihad. The devastation they will cause will not go unnoticed by the world markets, which further decline to catastrophic lows. Those who have 401K programs may see over half their wealth disappear in days. We were warned in Nov ’08!

The new expansion of combat roles to women is a very crafty move by Barry. When the military is ordered to confiscate the weapons of civilians it could get interesting . How many patriots will fire on a troop with long blond hair? See the cunning?
All I would see is a uniform, that is if, and ONLY if, they come for the guns my friend!

School debate team
Church youth groups
Regular Attendance at Church
Little League Baseball
Camping and fishing with family and friends
These are only a few of the activities that help young people develop a sense of self-esteem and belonging (see Maslows Hierarchy of Needs).
Of course parents, teachers, pastors, guidance counselors and school principals don’t notice the social outcast until he or she becomes a “shooter”. Then they wonder why such a thing could happen. They just can’t seem to understand that the “shooter” is not and never was a part of his target group. He or she has never identified, nor empathized with peers or society in general.
Now, comes the casual observer who has no critical thinking skills, and who finds glee in verbalizing their own myopic “pet solution” to the shooting without realizing the shooting is only the culmination of a lot of events that went unnoticed by a myriad of folks who were not paying much attention.
Yep, that is just about what is happening right now.
Why do the parents, teachers, pastors, guidance counselors and school principals not notice there are problems lurking? That seems to be the crux of the matter. Obviously, many of these kids come from dysfunctional families, but someone, somewhere along the line should be seeing the possible social problems. Is it simply a matter of "I don't want to get involved"?
We need to recognize and help with these sort of kids before a problem arises.
Oh, the teachers and admin notice these student LONG before they become an issue. But it is no longer acceptable for adults to show an interest in the lives of students. Teachers (especially male) can no longer open their classrooms at lunch to let students hang out without fear of being thought of as a pedophile. No longer can a teacher say, "so how's your day going?" and actually care about the response.
You put it perfectly, just replied to guitarspook along the same lines. Thank you. There is a reason why we have so much mental illness and childhood obesity in called a sedate lifestyle. Kids need activity learn to estimate risk and danger. "What do you mean a dead person stands up again?" was once asked to me by one of the kids I take care of. Reality is to be able to understand that danger can have fatal consequences. Risks can be taken safely. Other humans have value and can help overcome obstacles etc. etc.
The further we get removed from human interaction (and Church) the more we will see outbursts like we have seen in the past. And all the activities you mentioned are great for kids girls just as good as boys.
Thank you, great job!
Here's one more thing, In God's name can we please start to change the school system to understand that boys are boys and girls are girls. Boys learn differently than girls, a boys learning is based on experimenting falling getting up, constructing, risk assessment through experience. By feminizing the school system we are creating nightmares for boys so much so that they don't want to go to school any longer. Please educators, get it already, All the school shootings have been happening since the feminization of the school system, the first person shooting computer games and the minimization of the male value in society! (sorry my rant)

Excellent point. That certainly seems like it could, at the very least, be a major part of the problem. So, how do we fix that?
Fixing it would involve TRUST. The media is leading society to not trust people in authority (except the Federal Government, it seems). Every rare incident of a teacher abusing somebody, or a police officer, or whatever - even if they've been retired for 40 years - is played ad-nausium. Nobody trusts anybody, anymore, and I don't know how to fix that.
