John Boehner: ´The House has done its
part to avert this entire fiscal cliff´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/22/2012 9:17:55 AM

As you know, unless President Obama and Congress take action, tax rates will go up on every American on January 1st. The day after that, a mandatory ‘sequester’ will go into effect that will implement harmful cuts to our national defense. That is currently the law of the land. The House has done its part to avert this entire fiscal cliff.

Boehner failed as a negotiator. He got "bracketed"(experienced negotiators will know the term). Cutting spending never made it to the table. The entire discussion was about raising taxes. Played right into Obama´s hand.

Boehner has to go. He has no leadership skills.

Should have just offered 1 bill with 1 item - raising the top two tax rate levels.

Nothing else.

And expose the Democrat lie that it would solve our deficit problems.

Then, work on the other parts piece by piece.

Demanding the Democrats to explain how they expect to close the yearly deficit.

You see, the low-information voter and the MSM don´t correlate the yearly deficit to the national debt.

And Republicans need to stop trying to "do the right thing" by fixing all the problems which will only end up being blamed on them for cutting this and cutting that.

And point out how X program is expected to get Y amount increase, but the democrats are wanting more.
(we are increasing the program by 4% but the democrats are demanding 6%)

Lastly, state how gov´t programs need to become more effecient, more effective and more productive which will help reduce the rate of growth and impact.(that will get a lot of people excited).

Boehner should be replaced. Either let the Democrats raise taxes and let them them own it, or fight hard and no compromise. This in between pandering is letting the liberals beat the stuffing out of us in the media, protecting the rich and all that garbage.

I´m sorry but Boehner is a certified "bone head!" He is past his "best if used by date." Replace him in January and hopefully he will do the honorable thing and resign from the House....

Sanity requires Boehnor to bow out and put someone else not made of Jello in the role of speaker - Allen West for example.

We are about to see what a "good man" Boehner is if he is challenged for the Speaker´s gavel. He has been outfoxed by Obama at every turn. Results are what matter not good intentions. It does no good to deny the truth. If he has any honor, any honor at all, he will not fight it and give this important job to a LEADER. The country is in way too much trouble to be playing around worrying about hurt feelings.

A friend has a good and simple measure for determining meaningful control of the federal budget and real cuts..the value of real estate in DC area will fall at least 25%. Until you see that, the looting is continuing and the laws and regs used for personal gain and destroying the competition.

No government spending can happen without approval of the House of Representatives. It is high time the house started exercising its authority to cut spending to somewhere below revenue levels.

Whatever, L-dotters. If taxes are to go up, they should go up on EVERYONE.
Besides, as someone to the right of Limbaugh I am here to say that the sequesters DO NOT gut the military.
Over the cliff we go! Increases in taxes and spending cuts will be the result which is EXACTLY what everyone has been saying we need.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:
The stakes go far beyond cattle
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

GOP: Not just equal pay,

There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

But staring right at Sebelius in the front row of the Rose Garden and praising only Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin, of all people, for the trumped-up success of ObamaCare and not even mentioning his Health and Human Services secretary after five years of tough, loyal duty was

President Obama and wife Michelle are back on the road again, this time in Texas to harvest more Democrat dollars for the looming November midterm election. The previously-scheduled fundraising foray was tacked onto Obama´s memorial speech Wednesday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. Why let a nationally-televised shooting memorial go to waste when you can use such an official activity to cut the Democratic Party´s cost of political transportation on Air Force One for two fundraisers in Houston and another one today in Austin?

For many years whenever the president nears any crowd, a Secret Service agent walks ahead along the rope line ordering everyone to keep hands out of their pockets where agents can see them. That´s less of a problem these days. Because the hands of most everyone in such locations are holding cellphones to take photos of the nearby celebrity. And if there´s a campaign underway requiring the politician to ingratiate himself, possibly a selfie with the big guy himself. It's priceless political PR -- and free.

The American media endure a soiled reputation in the United States these days. Rightly so too often. Many of its members failed their sentry duty during the run-up to the 2008 presidential elections, and oftentimes since covering only selectively positive parts of Barack Obama´s reign of error. Today´s column reminds us there is media and then there is media. Anja Niedringhaus was a member of the other media. A photojournalist for the Associated Press, she covered conflict for 20-plus years from the Balkans and Libya to Kuwait and Afghanistan. She´s dead now.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
