Will President Obama Fool America Again? - The American Spectator
Take a look at this ObamaCare tax that could cost 45,000 American jobs and send them overseas.
Even if the government were to confiscate the net worth of the entire Forbes 400 list of richest Americans, their combined $1.5 trillion of wealth would barely cover the forthcoming $1.2 trillion debt-ceiling increase.
Tom Coburn released a new report, “Wastebook 2011” that highlights over $6.5 billion in examples of some of the most egregious ways your taxpayer dollars were wasted.
As we enter 2012, the presidential candidates would do well to wrap their minds and messages around these seven mathematical facts:
- Every day, the U.S. government takes in $6 billion and spends $10 billion. This means that every day the federal government spends $4 billion more dollars than it has.
- The real unemployment rate is a jaw-dropping 11 percent.
- Every fifth man you pass on your way to work is now out of work.
- College graduates are now 34% less likely to find a job under Obama than they were under President George W. Bush.
- Every seventh person you pass on the sidewalk now relies on food stamps.
- The ravages of the Obama economy now mean that more Americans live under the federal poverty line than at any time in U.S. history since records have been kept.
- Under President Barack Obama, every fifth child in America now lives in poverty.

Michelle Obama’s backside is your business how? — WaPo
Can you imagine how the incident would play out if an African American congressman made a crude remark about First Lady Laura Bush’s body? It certainly would have taken more than an insincere apology to wash that sin away. That scenario never happened — hopefully because those congressmen were raised with a measure of common decency. I know that America’s first family — an image this country presents to the world — is traditionally granted a certain amount of respect across party lines. [...]
Only Wisconsin Republican congressman Jim Sensenbrenner apparently isn’t bound by such traditions. While I suspect he might be the first to defend the honor and dignity of previous First Ladies, he was recently overheard at Washington’s Reagan National Airport loudly criticizing Michelle Obama’s healthy eating initiative: “She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.”

Three Reasons Military Families Should Never Vote Democrat - Misfit Politics
MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, the network's personality who likened Mitt Romney to the KKK, said the made-up word refudiate on the network this morning. Of course, refudiate is not a real word. However, it gained recognition when former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin used it in a tweet in June of 2010.
MSNBC ridiculed Sarah Palin for weeks when she used the nonexistant word on Twitter in 2010.
Are we alone in the universe?
As the romance of manned space exploration has waned, the drive today is to find our living, thinking counterparts in the universe. For all the excitement, however, the search betrays a profound melancholy — a lonely species in a merciless universe anxiously awaits an answering voice amid utter silence.
That silence is maddening. Not just because it compounds our feeling of cosmic isolation, but because it makes no sense. As we inevitably find more and more exo-planets where intelligent life can exist, why have we found no evidence — no signals, no radio waves — that intelligent life does exist?
It’s called the Fermi Paradox, after the great physicist who once asked, “Where is everybody?” Or as was once elaborated: “All our logic, all our anti- isocentrism, assures us that we are not unique — that they must be there. And yet we do not see them.”
