Say what you will about Jimmy Carter, ne did broker the peace deal known as the Camp David Accords. Israel and Egypt lived in relative peace for a number of years. ANd what happened to Sadat? He was killed by Islamic extremists for his desire for peace with Israel. So, stop blaming Israel for the deaths of Palestinians and other Arabs. Place ALL the blame on the nut jobs who will not rest until every Jew is dead.
The Fair Tax would bring these companies back to the US. It would also attract hundreds of foreign companies to our shores. Why is this simple REPLACEMENT for the IRS and their onerous tax code languishing in committee?

I can't think of anything that could be piled higher and deeper than "gender studies".
Right to work laws would mean NO ONE will be forced to join a union. I would never prevent any private employee from joining a union, but I would never FORCE them to join. Isn't THAT what makes America great?
Didn't Obama say that he would side with the Muslim world? I remember him saying that,or something close to it. It ws near the end of his first campaign, or just after the elction. Didn't that bother ANYONE? It sure as heck bothered me.
Since the e-mails were not printed out and saved, will Lois Lerner go to jail for failure to follow proper procedure? What about the six others who also "lost" their e-mails? Are you sick of all this garbage with the IRS by now? Wouldn't you just LOVE to get rid of the hundreds of thousands of employees AND their 73,000 pages of tax code? It can be done, and we can STILL fund the federal government (we do have that pesky $17 TRILLION debt to pay off) and its called the Fair Tax. ANd there is NO good reason why we should NOT pass this bill (HR 25). NOW and save the America we grew up with.
Okay, this is totally off-topic. I was watching the news just now, and they showed a clip of Obama. You'll have to do a little research to confirm this, but it seems to me that Obama's hair is getting whiter at an accelerated rate. I don't remember any white in his hair during his first two years (when his party had control of both houses).The current crop of scandals is taking its toll on the man.
The government has never been good at charity. And then there is this- "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." James Madison
Here's my solution to the VA mess. Fire all non-doctor/nurse personnel. Pay a local private hospital to adminsiter the facility. For example, in Houston, I would award the contract to St, Jpseph's hospital. Sure, they would turn a profit AND give some of the best care to the men and women who EARNED it in the field of battle.
Actually, foregn aid to Central America comes to less than $500 million. But yes, I agree with the proposal.
