According to the Washington Times: On Aug. 6, 2011, a Chinook helicopter carrying 30 U.S. service members — including 15 SEAL Team 6 members — was shot down in Afghanistan after the O administration placed a target on the backs of the Seal members who went after Osama bin Ladin by revealing their names. To no ones surprise they were murdered shortly afterwards. How convenient to "out" the names of the people who have too much information in their heads. MusingsbyMarian do tc om

John, the drop in murder and rape has already been rising since Obama sprung approx. 3600 criminals from prison. I'm sure as heck pessimistic about that. Where did the 400 per year murder figure from terrorists come from? Apparently Christians and other infidels being slaughtered around the world are not worthy of counting. When Jimmy Carter nearly took this country down, Reagan saved the day before Carter and his progressives could do more damage. Obama gained 4 more years to continue his economic demolition derby. The country may be able to rise from the ashes of his policies, but not every individual will be able to do so. Ask the millions that can't find a job. MusingsbyMarian do tc om

read my comment above. If you don't study the history behind events and trace them diligently to the present, you never understand them. Then you are left parroting the latest propaganda of those with hidden agendas. If you believe the political party you lock-step with doesn't have hidden agendas, you aren't doing enough research.

So true. I interviewed an Arab professor during the 1980's and he remarked their children are raised to be warriors. See my comments above.

When Israel was established, King Faisal and other moderate Arabs pushed the agreement establishing the state and welcomed Jews "home" in the warmest way possible. Faisal realized the Jews were bringing better economic conditions to the area and would raise the living conditions of all the middle eastern countries. In the meantime Hitler was courting Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, and helped set up what is now the Muslim Brotherhood. Al-Husseini not only supported Hitler's move to eliminate all the Jews, (he spent WWII in Germany) he wanted Israel wiped off the map. He also wanted his Muslim subjects to remain in the dark ages, so his faction assassinated Faisal and other prominent Arab leaders who took the same position as Faisal. Since that time, purging moderate Arab leaders has become the standard. That is why it is hard for moderates to gain a foothold. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
The insurance industries are major fuel for our economic engines. Not only do they employ millions of people, the funds they collect have been re-invested in mortgage loans in order to make interest, thereby growing the premiums they collect to make more available for payouts. If the health section of private insurance is destroyed (as Obama has plainly stated is his goal in order to install a single-payer system, that part of the economy will be destroyed forever. How do countries with socialized medicine replace the lost insurance money? In some countries their Value-Added Tax (that is a sales tax) run up to 26% of the items you buy. There is no such thing as a free lunch, guys. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
For almost a half-century as a real estate agent, I always urged clients to stay within their means. Underwriters for HUD, Fannie Mae, Private Mortgage Insurance and even conventional banks used to use formulas that insured people do so. If your house payments (PITI) including HOA fees exceed 28%, turn around (don't drown in debt.) If your house payments plus your installment debt (car payments, credit card payments, etc) added to your house payment should NEVER exceed 36% of your gross take home pay. The amount that is left has been calculated to be what you need for groceries, car insurance, gasoline (come to think of it, you might want to stay a little under the 28/36 ratio to account for rising prices in these these two commodities alone) and other incidentals. If you are exceeding these ratios, you are guaranteeing you will sink in debt. If people can't qualify for more, prices adjust automatically to accommodate . California is a prime example of what happens when you artificially adjust qualification rates. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
