72 Percent of Republicans
Fear New Year

U.S. News & World Report, by Kenneth T. Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/24/2012 3:12:18 PM

For Republicans, it may be the season to be jolly, but not optimistic. Seventy-two percent of Republicans are fearful about their future in 2013, and 79 percent fear for the world, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. This is a substantial increase in GOP gloom since 2006, when only 20 percent said they were fearful about their personal future during the Republican presidency of George W. Bush. Fifty-four percent of Republicans were fearful about their personal prospects after Democrat Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008. In contrast, three-quarters of Democrats

I´m no longer a republican. I´m an American (as opposed to ???-american), love this country and I´ll be praying hard. In the words of a famous and brave man...."let´s roll".

Well, yes. They have a clue. Democrats don´t.

And the most obnoxious thing is that when it all goes to heck, Republicans will be blamed.

Could be that we knew that GW loved this country and his fellow man. This ´thing´ we have in the WH is a mooslim goon. The goon is on vacation - we can only hope that a shark or octopus will miss not miss.

Marxist Goon more like it.

Democrats will suffer more than Republicans during Obama´s Reign of terror. They are already out of work and can´t find jobs. Wait until the economy collapses and Nero will be playing golf.

When George Bush was re-elected, there was not much Republican gloating, and some democrat celebrities threatened to move out of the country but did not follow through. Their fear was merely posing.

This time around, I have spoken with a great many Conservatives and Republicans who are genuinely saddened and fearful for their personal situation and for the Country. It is not faked; it is actual, real fear.

It is real fear. I fear the government more than any time in my life. I fear the morons that elected Bronco Bamma again. I never thought I needed a gun, but fortunately in my state I can get a concealed carry permit. I am reconsidering my position very seriously this Christmas season. This seems to be the time the Libs want to double down on taking away our rights. Too bad they won´t take away my fears.

The people tearing down this country are suicidally insane on a grand scale. They think to gain ultimate power, but all they will do is destroy the very nation that gave them so much. Destruction is easy. It is building that is hard. Don´t fear them. Seek to sidestep their evil as best you can. If they bankrupt coal, use wood. Each of us lives and dies, and none knows how long we have. We must do our best to make a positive difference in our own families and at local and state levels. Use the gifts God gave us until he calls us home.

First, the photo of the Delusional One makes reading the article very difficult. 4 more years of these photos is cruel & unusual punishment.

What´s interesting in survey are these two findings:

1. . More than three-quarters say the economy is still in a recession.

2. Yet..."55 percent are optimistic about the policies of President Obama in his second term".

If 4 years of Obama´s policies still have most people thinking that we are in recession that ended in 6/09, why do so many feel optimistic now?

I had four combat tours in Vietnam. I put on my boots, picked up my rifle and went out to face the enemy to save America from Communism. I´m now 74 years old, and I believe I will have to do it again. Right here at home. Happy New Year.

The Republican Party is the ordinary people--NOT the politicians or party bosses. The principles of the party have not changed. The pols have. The problem is we stopped caring. We let others choose the direction of the party and we don´t hold our reps accountable. It is our fault for continuing to let others decide and for voting for the same professional politicians over and over again. A new party? We´d just do the same thing again.

I will stand up and tell anyone anytime/any day that I am proud to be an American.

Am I concerned about the future?? Yes, absolutely, but you know, we haven´t had a true crisis here since WW II and more recently the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. And 9/11 - May God rest their souls. I was old enough to understand the Cuban missile crisis. Now THAT was something to worry about. 9/11 will be in-grained in me forever, another story for another time.

While it should not be so, perhaps those who have not/cannot see the proper way forward need a soul-searching experience to wake up and see what is happening. Or they see what is happening and glad to see it.

We need to get past this fear thing fast and fix what is wrong with Amerika. Sitting back in fear is just what the left is hoping we will do. Time to snap out of it. What do you say, folks?

Bloomberg News, by Kathleen Miller    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/19/2014 7:40:54 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

This week’s POLITICO Magazine contains an uncharacteristic show of gratitude from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to President Barack Obama. Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece. By giving the president “the authority to deny visas to United Nations ambassadors who are known terrorists,” he

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Until now. (Photograph) Could this satellite imagery hold a clue that scientists on the hunt have been missing? Could the Loch Ness monster be real?

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
