A satire

March 24, 2013

There’s a new boogie-man in the country to fear. Gone are the days of George W. Bush; gone is the Tea Party, now it is “Congressional Republicans”....

It doesn't have support Gavin if it did it would have become law by now. They only support parts of it not the full report.

Hey Chuck, the report was supported by over 60% of the commission members (11 out of 18), and an equal number of Democrats and Republicans.

Pssst, that means it had bipartisan support.

Did you realized that the ones from both sides who oppose it have more power than the ones who favor it. The common ground is they oppose it.

Simpson-Bowles was the bipartisan effort that did not get bipartisan support. You are the one who does not understand bipartisan. Only the report was bipartisan.

Chuck, you do understand the definition of bipartisan don't you? You know, where there is common ground on agreeing. Disagreement on an issue by opposite ideals does not make it bipartisan.

Quit being so petty.

"There is more BIPARTISAN support for a Simpson-Bowles plan than any other plan currently being considered by Congress. The problem is that the far right (taxes) AND the far left (changes to the entitlement programs) do not like it, and unfortunately for us, that is who is currently in control of the agenda"

From your post the only BIPARTISAN support is to be against it.

there are lots of people who believe they should report it as real so they can undermine those they disagree with. To them it is a fight that they must win. Seeing people post here untruths, seeing politicians lie and falsely report makes me sick. Often its not a mistake, but a calculated lie. I'm old enough to know, that course always comes back to haunt one so I smile when I see it.

Obama Pledges $200 Million in Aid to Jordan

On March 22 President Obama pledged to provide $200 million to Jordan to help with the "nearly half a million refugees who have fled the civil war in neighboring Syria."

Obama made this pledge at "a press conference with King Abdullah II in Amman." And as he did it, he took time to explain why he believed Jordan deserves the funding: "The Jordanian people have displayed enormous generosity, but the strains of so many refuges inevitably are showing...the international community needs to step up to make sure they help shoulder the burden."

Obama Admin Unblocks $500M in Funding for Palestinian Authority

After jet-setting to Israel to lecture citizens of the Jewish State about how they needed to empathize more with Palestinians who elect Hamas and back Israeli extinction, President Obama demonstrated what empathy means to him: the State Department has announced that it will unblock $500 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority. Congress froze funding for the Palestinian Authority just a few months ago in the aftermath of the PA’s attempt to unilaterally declare statehood via the United Nations.

Despite President Obama’s requests to PA President Mahmoud Abbas not to go to the International Criminal Court to seek sanctions against Israel, Abbas has vowed to do so.

Coincidentally, in the days leading up to Obama’s release of funds, The New York Times reported leaked documents suggesting that Abbas is interested in restarting the so-called peace process. “[Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu] can pledge to y

"I would tell that single mother who lost WIC and veteran who lost benefits to look at President Obama, who just gave the Palestinians $500 million and Jordan $200 million during his Mideast trip.

This President cares more for helping the people who danced in the streets on 9/11 than for those hurt by the economy in this country."

sideliner - 11:21 AM

"The President can't "give" anything."

The money to these countries is part of the $51.6 BILLION budget of the State Dept, the vast majority of which goes to OTHER COUNTRIES. And if you think Obama doesn't have his hand in on the giveaway, dream on.

Congress has nothing to do with all the billions going to foreign nations except in approving the State Dept budget.

Rick, both of my boys were in gifted programs at high school. Most of the young people who I know that have gone to college from this area and my kids have all said similar things to me. They mostly say that the kids who went to private schools tended to have an easier time with freshman classes and that their schools had left them not fully prepared. I don't believe this is an educator problem, but rather a systemic problem. Private schools have parents paying the bill, they are more likely to be involved, there are likely to be less "problem" kids because of the parental involvement and funding. The schools are not using education time for all the remedial stuff in class, the kids who cause disruptions are not there so they don't take time out of the day, there is a culture of success and the education is typically more difficult than public school. There are lots of reasons, but the disparity goes away after some time and the other kids catch up.

46&2, not kicking anyone. It was an assumption on my part, based on typical conversation here with the left leaners. My mistake, if that was not your assertion and you know what they say when you assume anything. Your complaint of my post still does not address my assertion that we need to train those less fortunate so they can work themselves off govt assistance and become a prideful member of society. There is nothing more degrading, humbling and enslaving than a persistent dependency on a govt agency. Would it not be better as I envision? Or would you rather this mom not be able to become independent?

I believe Mr. Bross has hit something here in that in the past we had kids who dropped out and were able to raise a family doing manual and factory work. For a variety of reasons there is less of both. So, how do we get those folks into a more fulfilling and productive life?

"Universities have to offer remedial courses in math, reading, etc" Maybe classes for old folks that never had higher ed in their day. Just where did you come up with this anyway? I am still waiting on the 911 comment. Man I thought I was going to sit this one out.
