Americans hold about $17.9 trillion in retirement assets in the form of 401(k)s, individual retirement accounts and pension funds. That money is not your own. If it were, you would be able to access it without penalty. Now, some are eyeing those funds as a big piggy bank to rob in order to pay off the “national debt.”
U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice lied repeatedly about the source and progression of the murders of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. Democratic attempts to besmirch her critics with the venerable smear of racism are unremarkable, absolutely stupid and somewhat offensive.
Is something deep and dark afoot in the upper regions of military command? Since the Sept. 11 Benghazi, Libya, massacre, President Barack Obama has sacked his CIA director and two of his top military commanders, demoted one and found another caught up in the scandal involving the CIA director.
No matter how many affirmative votes it holds on the issue of sovereignty-violating, internationally administered gun programs (the most recent went 157-0 with 18 abstentions), the U.N. has no chance to grab so much as an air rifle from your fists.
As the Federal government undoubtedly prepares to pounce on Colorado and Washington after voters in each State opted to legalize recreational marijuana use, it seems the Feds are fighting a losing battle with the American psyche.
People say the Pledge of Allegiance with patriotic fervor, with their hands placed dutifully on their hearts. They don’t realize its value as a propaganda tool. The Nation was not conceived as “indivisible,” though the War of Northern Aggression made it so.
Just to be clear on this: We’re against politicians keeping a “girl Friday” on the side? I’m asking only because the sudden resignation of retired Gen. David Petraeus as CIA director has me a bit perplexed.
The lights weren’t even turned off at the Barack Obama re-election celebration before the United Nations began plotting its gun grab again — with U.S. blessings. The U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee approved a resolution calling for a new round of talks in March.
I don’t have it in me to be my usual sunny self. I am morose. I’m as sad as a homeless guy who just found out the Democrats pay only for votes and that, tomorrow, he’ll be back to counting cans for the recycling deposits.
Acrimony, slander and rage led us inevitably to Election Day 2012. Campaign mouthpieces on both sides hurled accusations and counteraccusations ranging from honest to ludicrous. Now, it’s time to get out and vote. As I’ve warned you before, the Democrats are planning to do so twice.
