Looks like whacking the heads off Americans is not considered a threat. What more does he need to consider it a threat against America? Chopping Michelle's head off? Would that do it?
I predict that something terrible is going to happen on our soil before the average American wakes up and realizes that this evil has permeated our society. Their goal is to kill all of us because we are the "infidels". The crashing of planes into the Twin Towers should have been enough of a wake up call, but, apparently, that wasn't enough to convince Americans of this overwhelming danger. It's going to take even more serious tragedies to convince our government to really fight this evil.

Tolerate or Be Stamped Out

I have to ask this question out of curiosity and because many believe homosexuality is a "choice". Do you remember when you made a conscious "choice" to be heterosexual? If so, then I can only assume that everyone who thinks homosexuality is a choice must have entertained the idea of becoming one themselves.

One of the things I like most about being Christian is the fact that I have a right to decide whether or not to accept Jesus and His teachings. However, I do not have a right to impose my personal beliefs on others regardless of their "sin". As a Christian, I feel it is my obligation to love and tolerate those who do not share my beliefs and to "live and let live". We already have laws in place forbidding discrimination against anyone in the workplace, and other areas because of their sexual orientation. I've worked with many gay people and never witnessed any prolems associated with them being gay. If, as a Christian, I own a business, I cannot deny employment to anyone based on their sexual orientaton. But, I should not be forced to hire anyone if I believe they will not be suitable as an employee in my place of business. I doubt "tolerance" is the real issue here. I believe the gay and lesbian radicals are demanding much more than mere tolerance. And our government seems to be coddling them to allow for lawsuits if a gay or "gender confused" person doesn't get a job they applied for claiming discrimination. Perhaps discrimination is not the reason for denial of a particular job. It could be something more basic and that is the gay person may just be a total, overbearing jerk and would be denied a job just for showing themselves to be intolerant.
My husband died in the VA in 2004. Although the VA didn't directly cause his death, it was the ongoing incompetence that could have been a contributing factor. In addition, the night he died, the "crash carts" did not work meaning, if he had not already been dead when they found him, they could not have saved him. I also worked at that same VA Hospital for 20 years retiring in 2000 as an Administrative Officer of the Day. I worked every department in that hospital, and was even a trouble shooter and problem solver in many troubled areas. I was s supervisor in the Ambulatory Care unit where eligibility was initially determined for all new patients. The government created almost all of the problems and continued to force changes that employees were unable to handle competently. I could talk non-stop for a month and still not be able to tell about all the waste and mismanagement I saw during my time at the VA but I can say this much....throwing more money into the pot, hiring more doctors and nurses will NOT solve the massive problems that have existed for many years. The reason? Congressmen who do not have a clue as to how the VA is supposed to work, and have rarely if ever set foot inside a VA, or talked to individuals who actually have to do the jobs, are the ones making the decisions. They don't really care whether or not the problems get fixed because they only toss more money into the endless well to get more votes. Some improvements will take place for awhile before the next big scandal hits. But, overall, nothing will change because those fat cats don't know how to change anything.
She forgot to mention that many lawyers are now making a full time lucrative living helping with these claims and many of those claimants do not meet those basic requirements. THIS is what is destroying the Social Security system for all of us. And it's true that SSDI is the new form of welfare. And, getting worse, (which nobody wants to admit yet) are the VA claims for disability. I worked the VA Compensation and Pension office and the claims coming in are for some of the most bogus reasons I've ever seen and it is getting worse. Wherever there is a government benefit, the abusers will come out of the woodwork and jump on that bandwagon making it a burden for the rest of us.

'Career Girl' Abortions On The Rise

As far as I'm concerned anybody who is not responsible enough to use birth control resulting in a pregnancy is not responsible enough to have a "career". Men have no say one way or another whether or not a baby is aborted so he must keep his job in case the mother "chooses" to keep the baby. I've lost all respect for women in these matters.
They can't fix it because they don't know why it isn't working. They refuse to conform to existing regulations and keep piling more on the already troubled VA. The problem goes much deeper than dereliction of duty. I know because I worked there for 20 years in nearly every department and saw first hand what was going on. The government created the problems, but it will take a lot more than money to fix it. The issues are massive and unless employees are properly trained, the work flow properly managed, and the government follows the existing regulations, nothing they do now is going to solve the problems they created in the first place.
Why not self defense? I saved myself from being raped that way. The perp slunk away like a timid dog begging my forgiveness. If women actually defend themselves physically, then they can't play the victim if they go out on the town, get drunk, have sex while drunk, then when they sober up, feeling remorseful, claim they were raped. Unfortunately this is the scenario that plays out a LOT more than women actually being raped. Somebody needs to be getting some common sense here. It is also unfortunate that some women outright lie about being sexually assaulted and this has been proven on more than one occasion. Yet, women keep playing the victim while some young, and sometimes innocent young man, languishes in prison for nothing more than a night of drunken partying.

Big Labor’s VA Choke Hold

If the average federal worker makes $120,000. a year, then there must be a majority of them working in the higher levels of management. I went in as a GS 3, retired as a GS9 in 2000 and my average pay was about $43,000. per year. In Washington, DC the pay at the VA is about 2 grades higher per employee. The lower level workers average a grade of GS4-GS5. The average GS5 for 2014 makes about $36,000. per year. You can look that up on the Executive order for GS Pay Scale. I don't know where that $120,000. per year for the average employee is coming from. If I had stayed at the VA with step increases, I would probably be making about $51,000. per year as a GS9, step 7.
