Home Depot Co-Founder: Obama Is Choking Recovery

Home Depot Co-Founder: Obama Is Choking Recovery: "Bernie Marcus co-founded Home Depot () in 1978 and brought it public in 1981 as the U.S. was suffering from the worst recession and unemployment in 40 years. The company thrived, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and redefining home improvement retailing.

But Marcus says Home Depot 'would never have succeeded' if it launched today due to onerous regulation. He recently helped launch the Job Creators Alliance, a Dallas-based nonprofit of CEOs and entrepreneurs dedicated to preserving the free enterprise system. IBD recently spoke to him about jobs and the economy.

I think the American people have taken far too much abuse from a minority of foul, loud-mouthed, far-left, anti-American ideologues. There will be no more debates trying to respond to their deranged arguments. They are enemies of liberty. It is time to crush them.

Make no mistake about it; this is a war to save our republic.

We only have about ten months to rescue the United States from those people who want to destroy America.

It has become crystal clear that the US political leadership is either in bed with the anti-American ideologues or are too cowardly to oppose them.

Barack Obama is an illegal President and, most likely, a multiple felon. We must not permit him to enter another election cycle without his ineligibility for office and his alleged felonies being properly investigated.

Frankly, I do not expect that to happen easily.

If our Congress and our government officials refuse to enforce the law, then it is time for ordinary Americans to organize and act to restore Constitutional and common sense government.

Unrelenting pressure must be brought to bear to ensure that, before the 2012 primary season, Obama’s original birth, Social Security and Selective Service records are subjected to reproducible forensic analyses conducted by reputable, independent investigators and laboratories above any suspicion of being influenced by or colluding with any public official, bureaucracy, political party, or other special-interest organization.......................

Not! Poor man, he can hardly get me to pick up the dry cleaning.

Apparently, things are different Chez Bachmann. Running for Congress in 2006, the Minnesota Republican explained her decision to specialize in tax law.

She’d never taken a tax course in law school, Bachmann told the Living Word Christian Center, but her husband decided she should pursue an advanced degree in the subject.

“Tax law! I hate taxes! Why should I go and do something like that?” Bachmann recalled thinking. “But the Lord said, ‘Be submissive. Wives, you are to be submissive to your husbands.’ ”

In a bid to ‘squash negative stories’ about Barack Obama that appear on the Internet, the White House has hired a dedicated propagandist whose role will be to savage people who tell “lies” about the President, in a chilling reminder of how prosecutors threatened people with jail time during the 2008 campaign if they criticized Obama.

“The Obama administration has created and staffed a new position tucked inside their communications shop for helping coordinate rapid response to unfavorable stories and fostering and improving relations with the progressive online community,” reports the Huffington Post.

The man tasked with the role of “disseminating push back” against Obama’s online critics by direct order of the White House will be Jesse Lee, a blogger who has previously put out White House spin in response to claims made by Glenn Beck.

Ventura Threatens To Vacate US Over TSA�Groping by Paul Joseph Watson

Ventura Threatens To Vacate US Over TSA�Groping by Paul Joseph Watson: "Former Governor Jesse Ventura has promised to never fly again in the U.S. and could even seek Mexican citizenship if a lawsuit that charges the TSA with violating the Americans with Disabilities Act for touching the genitals of travelers is struck down by a federal judge this week.

Ventura launched the lawsuit back in January after having been subjected to invasive grope-downs by TSA agents on numerous occasions which included them touching his genitals. The former Governor has a metal plate in his hip which routinely sets off metal detectors.

Ventura’s lawsuit, first filed on January 24, includes violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the 4th Amendment, arguing that he and others with disabilities have been discriminated against and unduly singled out by TSA despite presenting no threat and warranting no reason for lawful search. Further, Ventura has argued that his ability to travel freely has been infringed, hampering his ability to work.

Radio host Alex Jones personally met with Ventura this past weekend at his 60th birthday party in Los Angeles.

Although his lawyer told him that he thinks there is a good case, Ventura believes that his lawsuit will be struck down because the federal government doesn’t want to give Ventura the opportunity to dig in to what the TSA is really doing."

Obama tried in desperation to get legislation enacted that would help the crooked union leaders in their quests to make organizing, and membership rolls larger with concomitant huge, even monstrous increases in dues monies into their treasuries for their wrongful, if not illegal goals.

These measures, such as ‘Card Check’ the deceptively named “Employee Free Choice Act” which was the exact opposite of free choice that would take away the employee’s secret ballot free choice and have the strong-armed unionista gestapo’s standing over the employee when the time they called for gaining new member elections were in process, were summarily turned down by the public and Congress followed suit."

It is with a modicum of embarrassment that I lead off this article with a bit of mea culpa in regard to a piece of misinformation that was included in my last writing, The State of the Nation. In that composition I imputed the following quote to George W.

Headache? Why Eating Too Many Sandwiches, Not Getting Enough Sleep and Having a Hot Shower Each Day May Be to Blame! by Charlotte Dovey

Headache? Why Eating Too Many Sandwiches, Not Getting Enough Sleep and Having a Hot Shower Each Day May Be to Blame! by Charlotte Dovey: "When you suffer a headache, the temptation is to reach immediately for the painkillers. But trying to pinpoint the cause might help reduce the pain – and even prevent the problem occurring again.

Headaches are one of the most frequent reasons for going to the GP or neurological clinics, says Giles Elrington, a neurologist at the Barts and London NHS Trust and trustee of the London Migraine Clinic.

‘In all headaches, and that includes migraines, the physiological explanation is the same,’ he says.

‘An electrical circuit at the back of the brain – known as the trigemino-cervical neurovascular pathway – fires off incorrectly, generating pain in the head. Think of a fire alarm ringing without the fire.’

The good news is that despite the universal fear, a headache is rarely the sign of a brain tumour. ‘Fewer than 1 per cent of people who consult their GP about a headache actually have something seriously wrong with them,’ says Mr Elrington.

‘Nevertheless, in all cases, it’s important to"

For the American soldier, it's become the sneakiest of all sneak attacks to watch out for – the enemy's final chance to wreak havoc by secretly following the soldier home and attacking him and his loved ones there.

Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD – frequently characterized as 'bringing the enemy home with you' – has become an epidemic in the U.S. military. But because of a dramatic breakthrough from the grassroots, there is new hope.

The problem is dire. Exacerbated by back-to-back tours of duty in a war environment where enemy combatants are often indistinguishable from civilians and every passing vehicle a potential car bomb, up to 20 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan war vets are currently struggling with PTSD, according to the federal Department of Veterans Affairs."

Prison Planet.com � 20 Signs That The Fabric Of American Society Is Coming Apart At The Seams

Prison Planet.com � 20 Signs That The Fabric Of American Society Is Coming Apart At The Seams: "There is wild disagreement about what is causing it, but what most people can agree on is that there is something fundamentally wrong with America. The fabric of American society just does not seem to be as strong as it used to. In fact, many would argue that society is coming apart at the seams. Corruption and decay seem to be everywhere. I spend a lot of time in my other articles blaming a lot of this corruption and decay on politicians, bureaucrats and business leaders, but the reality is that they are only part of the story. The truth is that those who are leading us are a reflection of what we have become as a nation. If you got rid of all of our corrupt leaders that would not suddenly “fix” this country. Millions of ordinary Americans have become deeply corrupt as well. The kinds of things that you are about to read about below were very rare in past generations. Society is falling apart all around us and we haven’t even seen the complete collapse of the U.S. economy yet."

* The father of modern economics – Adam Smith - didn’t believe that inequality should be a taboo subject

* Warren Buffet, one of America’s most successful capitalists and defenders of capitalism, points out, “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war ….”

David Frum: GOP wants Obama's unconditional surrender

David Frum: GOP wants Obama's unconditional surrender: "In this debt-ceiling fight, I'm having horrible flashbacks to the Republican debacle over health care.

Then as now, what could have been a negotiated deal turned into all-out political war.

Then as now, Republicans rejected all concessions by the president as pathetically inadequate.

Then as now, Republicans refused any concessions of their own, instead demanding that the president yield totally to their way of thinking.

Then as now, Republicans convinced themselves that they had the clout to force the president to yield.

With health care, Republicans calculated spectacularly wrong. They pursued an all or nothing strategy and got -- nothing. They neither shaped the bill, nor did they stop it.

Will they make the same mistake again on the debt ceiling?

We don't know the exact shape of the offers President Obama has made inside the negotiating rooms. Republicans tell friendly journalists that the president has been highhanded and long-winded.

Perhaps.

But the president has gone on television to declare himself willing to consider some startling moves: alterations to Social Security cost-of-living formulas, raising the age at which retirees qualify for Medicare, and large dollar figures for deficit reduction over the next decade.....

“I really don’t know,” DeMint said. “As I move around, people are telling me they’re out there and they’re engaged, but since the election they have not had as much of a focus.”

In 2009 and 2010, thousands of people took to the streets in cities around the country under the tea party banner to protest President Obama’s legislative agenda. But since Republicans took control of the House and beefed up their ranks in the Senate, participation at tea party rallies—and the number of rallies themselves—has waned. Republicans in Congress are now embroiled in a debate over reducing federal spending in return for a vote to raise the debt ceiling. DeMint has led the charge in the Senate, demanding a constitutional amendment that would force the federal government to balance its budget annually. But he said it’s crucial for the tea party to pressure other Republicans looking to compromise.
