Wow! Another week has gone by and we still don’t have a solution to the debt crisis.
The democrats are incapable of curbing their spending. They can’t. If they stop with their various payoffs to special interests and dependency groups, they’ll lose their power. Also, Obama’s socialist plans would come to an end.
Can’t have that.
I’ve lost count how many ‘Pub plans have been submitted. Three? Four? How many have the dems and Obama submitted? Zero.
They think the ‘Pubs will cave as usual. It’s beginning to look like they will. McConnell’s “Plan B”, that he foolishly announced while the House plan was being negotiated, sunk any further efforts. Why? It gave Obama and the dems what they want. Higher debt ceiling. An extension past the upcoming federal election and any cuts would be determined later—read that as never.
Boehner’s plan is a little bit better. It only runs through the end of the year. It counts on future cuts that he and his plan cannot enforce. It does have some cuts this year but the actual amount is yet to be determined. Some say $1billion, others say less. No one really knows and the worse of all is that it only cuts THE AMOUNT OF INCREASE! No real cuts.
As far as I’m concerned, Boehner and the establishment ‘Pubs have zero credibility. At least there are some Tea Partiers in the house standing by their commitments.
I was listening to Laura Ingraham on the radio this morning. She was attacking the Tea Party for having the guts to stay true to their constituents. Ann Coulter has been doing the same.
A Pox on both of them.
What we are seeing is the formation of a third party. The establishment pubs are showing they are no better than the dems. It’s not about saving the country, nor about limited government, nor about conservatism. It’s solely about political power and not looking bad to some nebulous voting blok.
The Republican Party is about to go the way of the Whigs.
It seems there is one area of education that must observe immigration law—the University of Northern Virginia, a private, for-profit school that boasts it is the largest private university in the country. Too bad the state operated and funded schools don’t have the same requirement.
Dozens of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided offices at the University of Northern Virginia’s Annandale campus Thursday.
The University of Northern Virginia is an unaccredited, for-profit private university that calls itself the most popular American university for students from India. Thousands of students are registered at three locations in northern Virginia.
Agents have removed boxes of documents from a building on Little River Turnpike where the university leases two suites.
The university temporarily can’t accept any foreign students, reads a notice posted on the door of the offices. UNVA students must leave the country immediately if they are unable “to continue to attend classes and maintain their active status in a manner required by federal government regulations,” the notice reads.
Here’s something I found happening in the Czech Republic. They want to ban the Communist Party. If we did that here, we’d be banning the democrat party.
PRAGUE (AP) — They’re the Czech Republic’s fourth-largest political party, but the hardline Communists could soon be outlawed if the center-right government has its way.
It’s more than two decades since communism collapsed here, but the survivors and ideological heirs to the party that ruled from 1948 until the “Velvet Revolution” of 1989 are under increasing political pressure.
The party, which is vehemently opposed to NATO, brands opponents “terrorists” and maintains friendly ties with the ruling Communists in Cuba, China and North Korea.
Unlike most other communist parties in the region that have joined the left-wing mainstream, the Czech party has maintained its hardline stance.
Supporters of the ban say it is a direct successor of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia, whose members killed more than 240 political prisoners while thousands of other opponents died in prisons.
As the economy worsens, who is being hurt worse? Apparently, many are those who voted democrats into office.

The unemployment situation across America is bad, no doubt. But for African-Americans in some cities, this is not the great recession. It’s the Great Depression.
Take Charlotte, N.C., for example. It is a jewel of the “new South.” The largest financial center outside of New York City, it’s the showcase for next year’s Democratic National Convention. It was a land of hope and opportunity for many blacks with a four-year college degree or higher.
According to an analysis by the Economic Policy Institute, in Charlotte, N.C., the unemployment rate for African-Americans is 19.2 percent. If you add in people who have given up looking for jobs, that number exceeds 20 percent, which, according to economists Algernon Austin and William Darity, has effectively mired blacks in a depression.
