Biden: You'll Vote For Me in 2016
Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:kennedylaw, 10/31/2012 3:03:36 PM

During a campaign stop in Florida today, Vice President Joe Biden tried to convince at least one voter they would eventually vote for his presidential candidacy in 2016. This isn't the first time Biden has hinted at a 2016 run for the White House.

I would encourage Joe to run, but Lord what would we do if he actually won?

Don't laugh, but I can easily see the Demon-RATS running Crazy Uncle Joe as their candidate in 2016.

Think about it. Romney has such an incredibly good first four years, that he has 90% approval ratings. He is a shoe-in for reelection. The Demon-RATS know they can't beat him, so they pick a ''sacrifical lamb'' to run against him as a reward for being a faithful party lackey for years. Think of John McPain in the last election.

Who better to sacrifice than Crazy Uncle Joe??? Works for me...

I'm thinking Hillary will give it a try, but she'll be 69 and still covered in Obama. The guy that made the break just in time, who is ambitious and aggressive, polishing his image machine every day, and is still involved on the national scence campaigning for the party in Florida, is the former presidential chief of staff. Emmanuel will run if Romney isn't a shoo-in and Obama doesn't win now thus ruining 2016. I'm hoping Romney wins in 12 and we get to see what Axelrod and Allred do to get rid of Emanuel for Obama 2016. Popcorn in Chicago.

To put it more simply, Newt Gingrich has a better chance at the Dem nomination than Uncle Joe.

The Right Minimum
Wage: $0.00
New York Times, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: kennedylaw- 2/3/2014 11:37:31 AM     Post Reply
The Federal minimum wage has been frozen at $3.35 an hour for six years. In some states, it now compares unfavorably even with welfare benefits available without working. It´s no wonder then that Edward Kennedy, the new chairman of the Senate Labor Committee, is being pressed by organized labor to battle for an increase. No wonder, but still a mistake. Anyone working in America surely deserves a better living standard than can be managed on $3.35 an hour. But there´s a virtual consensus among economists that the minimum wage is an idea whose time has passed.

The Urban League of Greater Dallas fired one person and suspended three others after a video from a conservative activist reportedly showed the workers encouraging health care applicants to lie. An edited video was released Monday that seemingly shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing up for health care to get better rates.

Evelina Gonzalez was supposed to undergo cancer surgery in July following chemotherapy but wound up shuttling from hospital to hospital in search of an available operating table. On the crest of her left breast, a mocha-colored tumor doubled in size and now bulges through her white spandex tank top. Gonzalez is on a list of 31 breast cancer patients waiting to have tumors removed at one of Venezuela´s biggest medical facilities, Maracay´s Central Hospital. But like legions of the sick across the country, she´s been neglected by a health care system doctors say is collapsing after years of deterioration.

The sun fired off an intense solar storm at Earth Wednesday (Aug. 21) — the second in two days — hurtling billions of tons of charged particles at our planet, but should not pose a threat to people on the ground, NASA says. The solar eruption, called a coronal mass ejection, occurred yesterday at 1:24 a.m. EDT (0524 GMT) and sent charged particles streaking outward at 380 miles per second. That´s just over 1.3 million mph (2.2 million km/h). The solar fallout from the sun storm is expected to reach Earth within the next three days.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

KINGSTON - More than 150 years after European colonial powers abolished slavery, a coalition of Caribbean nations is considering legal action to seek a formal apology and monetary compensation. Caribbean leaders meeting next week in St. Vincent are expected to study a broad legal outline for the reparations claim prepared by a British law firm. The subject of reparations has simmered in the Caribbean for many years and opinions are divided. Some see reparations as delayed justice, while others see it as an empty claim and a distraction from modern social problems in Caribbean societies. Slavery ended throughout the Caribbean
