"...now in Reid's majority control..."? Reid has been majority leader for Obama's entire presidency and then some. Reid and the Dems have been slowly turning up the burner on the Republican "frogs in the pot". Killing the fillibuster was just another twist on the temperature knob....and look at how McConnell reacts - "it's not very nice". What we see in Congress is a small scale of what is happening in the world. Repubs have been showing weakness and the Dems have been capitalizing on this by being more agressive and taking more and more control. Eventually, the Dems will take over. Global politics is the same way - Obama Administration is unwilling to show strength and tries to be every countries "friend". The countries don't want our friendship, they want to take over and/or destroy our country!!
When will people realize that the Republican Establishment (RE) is complicit?! Need proof? Look at the way the RE quicly falls in like with Democrats, after making the requisite number of "opposition statements". Democrats have promised the RE a really neat Clubhouse to stay in as long as the RE looks the other way . Then look at what the RE does to those like Rubio, Cruz and Lee who threaten the Clubhouse - the RE gets vicious and attacks...would that the RE use that viciousness against the Dems rather than the citizens of America! Guaranteed if the RE did the people would have elected them to majorities in both houses and the White House. Alas, REs feel comportable and safe in the RE Clubhouse.
It is very good to see strong conservative and Constitutionally founded leaders in the Congress. 2014 will show if citizens will continue to support the constitutional conservatives or allow the GOP (Gutless Old Politicians) to continue our nation's "Death Spiral".
This country belongs to We the People, not BHO the Tyrannt. A free people have always fought to keep their God given rights and freedoms, and will continue to do so.
The middle-east is one big hornets nest full of irrational hornets. So The Arrogant One's plan is to throw a few rocks at the hornet's nest with the intent of having the hornets turn to a rational behavior? I see a pattern where The Arrogant One provides a rich, destablized environment for muslim extremists to flourish - Egypt, Lybia, Palesinians, etc. Now The Arrogant One wants to disrupt the rest of the middle east by throwing a few cruise missles into Syria. The Arrogant One causes chaos where ever he goes and with everything he touches.
As with everything else, it's all about "The Arrogant One". I firmly believe The Arrogant One has looked over his shoulder and realizes he is the only only one on the politicical diving board and in Speedos. Now the Arrogant One is running for the shower room and hoping Congress will get him a pair of board shorts, and a reason not to jump off the diving board alone! If this was such a dire national security issue, why did the Arrogant One run to the golf course immediately after his "second decision" to get congressional approval? Again, it's all about The Arrogant One!

Hillary: She's the Man

I see Hillary as a "place holder". Look at her marriage to Bill - place holder. Look at 2008 elections - place holder. They said Hillary deserved 2008 for her loyalty to Bill and the party. Obviously, loyalty isn't a two-way street in Democrat land. I will be amazed if Hillary gets the nomination!
If the Republicans of today were in charge in the 1770s, we would be paying our taxes in pounds. Clearly, there was no way a bunch of farmers and settlers could defeat the world’s strongest military. But together they pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor (and most gave all) for a chance at liberty and freedom from government oppression. The rest is history. Today’s House GOP boasts its own bravery by voting 39 times to repeal Obamacare with the same results 39 times – nothing. Isn’t that the definition of insanity? Wouldn’t a good and effective leader have decided after five votes that another strategy might be warranted? The opportunity to defund Obamacare is at hand. Already the GOP is cowering because a group of pundits says the GOP will lose the 2014 election. I argue that should the GOP fail to politically fight for what a majority of Americans want, defunding and eventual repeal of Obamacare, a GOP disaster like 2012 is certain. Those who fought to establish this great nation had no certainty of success, but fight on they did. Will today’s GOP decide to make our founders proud or to let GOP stand for “Gutless Old Politician”?
May I correct, please? That would be "Deputy Joe". And he doesn't get bullets either!! :o)
Gun Free Zones are Self-Defense Free Zones! What do these mass shootings have in common? They were locations that banned guns! Even the Fort Hood terrorist shooting took place on a "secure" military installation. The Portland mall shooting was mitigated by a citizen with a concealed weapon (the media didin't tell you that fact). The goverenment can't even protect a few soldiers on a secure base, what makes you think the government can protect all of us all the time? It's impossible. Citizens MUST retain the innate right to defend ourselves!
