"Because Time is doing what the media always does—deciding who and what they want to matter rather than what actually matters to Americans. As long as people subscribe to these magazines, read these newspapers and watch these networks, the media will continue to hijack the culture and use it to bludgeon the rest of us with what these out-of-touch elites deem important and ignore what the rest of us know is." I stopped reading Time and the NY Times and watching CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, Public Television many years ago. Their leftist radicalism had become unbearable as had their biased reporting and commentary. These institutions are a bane to our society, culture and republican, constitutional form of government. They mimic in an ironic manner the propaganda media of totalitarian systems like Nazism, Bolshevism and Maoism. Why ironic? Because they were not forced into becoming the government's propaganda media, they volunteered to perform that role.
"All of us, including the press, must learn the difference between policies that are pro-America and anti-America, and to recognize those that are meant to benefit a particular party." Conservatives and true Republicans are pro-America. Liberals and Democrats are anti-America. This is all anyone needs to know to decide whom to vote for in Nov 2014. Those who understand this will vote rationally. Those who don't, won't. All we can hope for is that rational voters will outvote irrational ones. This did not happen in 2008 or 2012, so we'll just have to wait and see what happens in 2014.
Why blacks and Jews vote for Democrats I have never understood. Logic and common sense argue for them doing precisely the opposite, but logic and common sense don't seem to apply in these cases.
The Republican Party has become a collection of losers and cowards. It is committing political suicide by surrendering to donors, lobbyists, social radicals, law breakers, atheists, America haters and racists (the Sharpton kind). A new party will have to emerge to replace the Republicans because they are no longer faithful to the ideals of our founders and our traditions. It took Obama to demonstrate how feckless, useless and passive the party has become. We have no choice but to vote against Democrats but we need to start building a new party immediately for the sake of our grandchildren and their progeny.

When the Left runs out of insane and arcane causes, then, and only then, will we achieve their fantasied Utopia.
"Throw in the scandals at the IRS, the wild, costly parties at the General Services Administration, the ineptitude in the Secret Service, the cost overruns at the Department of Homeland Security, to name only a few, and you have a government that is out of control." "When the people fear the government you have tyranny. When the government fears the people you have liberty." - Thomas Jefferson "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have." –Thomas Jefferson In November you will be voting for liberty or tyranny.
"The Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress, has produced a mountain of audits over the years detailing the VA's inexcusable mismanagement. If Obama's administration had been doing its job, instead of looking the other way, that would have been one of its highest priorities." Obama despises the military and could care less about the welfare of veterans. This is the reason he took no corrective action whatsoever to discipline and retool the VA. Why anyone would expect him to fix the problems at the VA is beyond me to understand.
If Republicans don't acquire the majority in the Senate in the 2014 elections then I will cancel my subscription to Townhall.com and other conservative sites. If the Republican Party cannot benefit from 6+ years of Obama's and Democrats' incompetence and failures then we are all wasting our time following politics and supporting Republicans. Just as we should not engage in war unless we intend to win, so we should not engage in political campaigns unless we intend to win or know how to win. Republicans won in 2010 because of Tea Party support. Instead of being grateful they attacked it. This election will be the last time I vote for them if they don't take the Senate. It will be the last time I vote, period, because this failure will demonstrate that voting for Republicans is a waste of time and energy.
"He made "a mistake," he told NBC's Meet The Press." Something that Obama will NEVER admit to - a mistake! To him, such admissions are political suicide. To us they're simply admissions to being human.
"All too often, Panetta writes, Obama "avoids the battle, complains, and misses opportunities," painting a portrait of a president who has a hard time making up his mind." How could you not be confused and indecisive? Who should you listen to and follow? Valerie Jarrett or Michelle Obama? Why else would he spend most of his time on Air Force 1, fund raisers and golf courses? Both women have much stronger convictions and beliefs than Obama so their advice and counsel would necessarily confuse him.
