It is worth reminding everyone that in May 2001 NewsFlavor.com’s unnamed White House insider provided behind-the-scenes information on the decision to go after Osama bin Laden: “Please get this out ASAP. Want specific people to know we know. RE Osama Bin Laden. Significant push to take him out months ago. Senior WH [White House] staff resisted. This was cause of much strain between HC and Obama/[Valerie] Jarrett. HC [Secretary of State Hillary Clinton] and LP [CIA head Leon Panetta] were in constant communication over matter—both attempted to convince administration to act. Administration feared failure and resulting negative impact on [Obama].” (That is, Obama did not want a repeat of Jimmy Carter’s failed Operation Eagle Claw of April 24, 1980, in which eight U.S. servicemen were killed in a botched attempt to rescue 52 American hostages from the U.S. embassy in Tehran, Iran. Obama, fearful of yet another comparison with Carter, preferred leaving bin Laden free to risking an embarrassing failure.) The insider continues, “Intel [the intelligence community is] disgusted over politics over national security. Staff resigned/left. Check timeline to corroborate. Now Intel already leaking to media facts surrounding how info obtained. Namely from enhanced interrogation efforts via GITMO prisoners. Obama administration placed in corner on this. Some media aware of danger to [Obama] RE this and [are] attempting protection. Others looking for further investigation. We are pushing for them to follow through and already meeting with some access. Point of determination [was] made FOR Obama not BY Obama. Will clarify as details become more clear. Very clear divide between Military and WH. Jarrett marginalized 100% on decision to take out OBL [Osama bin Laden]. She played no part. BD [then-chief of staff William Daley] worked with LP and HC to form coalition to force [Obama] to engage. IMPORTANT SPECIFIC: When 48 hour go order issued, [Obama] was told, not requested. Administration scrambled to abort. That order was overruled. This order did not originate from [Obama]. Repeat—this order did not originate from [Obama]. He complied, but did not originate. Independent military contacts have confirmed. Stories corroborate one another. This is legit. The killing of Osama Bin Laden was in fact a Coup within Obama WH. Speaking with additional contacts RE info.”
I have in-laws in Brazil, and its lesbian, socialist president, Dilma Rousseff has a scheme going involving Cuban "doctors." The Brazilian government (that is, the taxpayers) paid the Castro regime to get Cuban doctors to "volunteer" to treat poor Brazilians in remote regions. Of course, the "treatment" consists mostly of distributing communist propaganda. Rousseff has a criminal record for terrorism. Nevertheless, she was re-elected on October 26 because the Brazilians who rely on federal handouts exceed the number of working stiffs who pay the taxes.
How do you like working as a troll from the White House basement? When you're not at the keyboard, do they make you clean up after Bo, Sunny, and Michelle?
Do it with your own money, not mine.
Fine, do both. But what right do they have to use government force to make others pay for the care of their children?
Fine. Pay for it with your own money. Why do the taxpayers have to subsidize pre-school for others? Why do people without kids have to subsidize those who do? If you want kids, pay for them out of your own pocket.
Regan's divorce is irrelevant to the issue of Obama's communist parents and mentors. Hate? Yes, we hate socialism and communism.
From TheObamaTimeline.com: Pushing government pre-schools, Obama says, “Moms and dads deserve a great place to drop their kids off every day that doesn’t cost them an arm and a leg.” (That government pre-school would cost less than private pre-school is ridiculous. Wherever the children are placed there are costs: rent, utilities, salaries, insurance, etc. Whether it is the government agency or a private business paying those bills, those bills exist. Additionally, government employees tend to receive higher wages and benefits than employees in the private sector. Thus, the per-child cost of government pre-school would likely be higher than the cost at a privately-run facility. What Obama wants, of course, is not for the parents to pay for the pre-school directly; he wants the taxpayers to pay for the pre-schools. He wants to spread the cost among all taxpayers—regardless of whether they have children. As a result, people who have no children would be paying part of the day-care costs of people who do have children, and working Americans would be paying all of the costs of non-working Americans with children. Obama is essentially arguing for socialism.)
The Equal Pay Act of 1963 was signed into law by President John F. Kennedy. That law states, “No employer… shall discriminate, within any establishment in which such employees are employed, between employees on the basis of sex by paying wages to employees in such establishment at a rate less than the rate at which he pays wages to employees of the opposite sex in such establishment for equal work on jobs[,] the performance of which requires equal skill, effort, and responsibility, and which are performed under similar working conditions, except where such payment is made pursuant to (i) a seniority system; (ii) a merit system; (iii) a system which measures earnings by quantity or quality of production; or (iv) a differential based on any other factor other than sex…” For 50 years it has been against federal law to pay a woman less than a man for the same work, yet Obama and many Democrats continue to insist that additional laws are needed—when all that is needed is for the Department of Labor and the Department of Justice to enforce existing laws.
"He ran a strong gubernatorial contest in the 1998 Florida governor's race, but lost." That should read 1994. Jeb Bush lost in 1994 but then won in 1998 and 2002. He serves as Florida governor from 1/5/1999 to 1/2/2007.
