As Americans face a variety of problems around the globe: financial crisis in Europe, mounting debt here at home, tensions in Asia between China and its neighbors over remote islands, threats of war between North and South Korea, violence in Kashmir a troubled region between India and Pakistan, and Islamic violence throughout Africa, and uncontrolled violence in central America, we have to ask ourselves, What is our role in all of this?
With the presidential election over, political junkies now turn their eyes toward the next big race.
President Barack Obama, while addressing the media on Friday had plenty on his mind when discussing the sequestration. Yes, it was "Jedi mind meld" a mixture of Star Wars and Star Trek.
Obama, faced the media today dicussing the sequester (sequestration), the negotiations and blamed the republicans and Speaker Boehner for the "severe" budget cuts, after meeting with the leaders of both parties on Friday. During a question and answer session, Obama deflected questions regarding whether he is responsible for any of the problems and asked what steps should he take in addressing the issue.
Every so often, Americans are subjected to outright fear mongering from our politicians, claiming the world is going to end.
President Barack Obama is accustomed to receiving awards he does not deserve. In fact, the President received the ultimate award in November of 2008.
On the NBC News show “Meet The Press”, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal called out President Obama and told him to “Stop campaigning”.
Americans are learning more about rampant voter fraud in the last election. In Cincinnati, Ohio poll worker Melowese Richardson has admitted to voting more than once for President Obama. Richardson still has an Obama sign on her front lawn and is obviously not concerned with her lawbreaking. She told WCPO-TV, “Yes, I voted twice…after registering thousands of people, certainly wanted my vote to count, so….I voted at the polls.”
For years we have heard conservative members of Congress say that the federal government has a spending problem. Now liberals in Congress are saying we have a revenue problem. Two different takes on the economic mess our country is in and two different positions that will be difficult to resolve. As a result America continues to sink further into debt and calls continue for additional higher taxes.
President Obama has once again ignited the flames of partisanship. His concept of “working together” is giving him whatever he wants. Obama has now decided to embark upon a new divisive issue to drive a wedge between the American people. This time it is gun control. His intention is to create a plethora of new laws governing the possession of firearms and ammunition with the intent of preventing violent crimes.
