Americans have a very special message for the federal government: Don’t tread on me.That’s the takeaway from a new poll from the Pew Research Center in which, for the first time in at least the last two decades, a majority of Americans say Washington actually poses a threat to their “personal rights and freedoms.”And it’s not just tea party supporters, Republicans and gun owners. Nearly two-fifths of Democrats (38 percent) say the government is a threat to them personally, as do 45 percent of non-gun owners.
No matter what freedoms are lost or people suffering under government mandates, comprised by non elected people,Obama´s supporters will stick by him until there´s proof that he´s failed on redistribution.
Black people who are the most responsible for obama getting elected have seen negligible improvements in their stock if life while billions have been pumped to his rich liberal WHITE cronies.
The Democrat Party and it´s supporters pose a bigger threat to the future of America and it´s citizens than all Islamists combined. The damage that Democrats have done and are continuing to do may be insurmountable. Massive civil disobedience may be the only answer. All we have between us and the total overthrow of our government is a handful of GOP members in House and Senate, plus the GOP governors of the red states.
Who would have thought that the Gadsen Flag would be a rallying symbol against tyranny once again in this country. Each time I see it I am heartened to know that there are others out there who understand what is happening to our freedoms. Display it proudly. It is a great conversation starter and a source of support for others.
Just look at what goobernment does for us. Increases the cost of everything (gas, food, insurance, etc.) and offers nothing except decreased freedom (can´t buy real gas, can´t buy affordable insurance but get ´taxed´ if we don´t). Goobernment at all levels tells us what we can eat, drink, reduces our rights in our home (can’t smoke even in a home, yet deviant sex is a ‘privacy’ right). Our goobernment is the greatest threat to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness we face. No communist threat or Muzzie threat even comes close. It is sad to say but we are nearing a point when we must decide, are we to be slaves to our tyrannical goobernment or are we Freedom Fighters?
Pfffffffftttttttt........ 47% will vote for more government no matter what. the 10+% of undecided voters are complete morons who will finally vote based on what they will get and a percentage of republicans will stay home because the GOP candidate isnt conservative enough, or wears magic underwear.
So this poll is completely meaningless.

#9 nailed it. This is a complete non-story. Zippy will be in power for another four years - - and no meaningless poll will change that.
And I disagree with #1. Lo-Fo voters don´t want a chicken in every pot - - they want pot in every chicken - - and they want us to pay for it.
And just who did these dolts think was responsible for this threat when they cast their vote in November?

Our government is corrupt from top to bottom, even the Supreme Court. Remember Chief Justice Robert´s decision on Obama care? What a travesty! In my opinion, he is either dumb as a chicken or bought and paid by Obama, maybe both.
All of this could have been easily predicted before Obama´s first election when the recording of him came out musing about the bill of rights that they didn´t go far enough. They said only what the government could not do to the citizens, but not what the government should do on your behalf. Obama articulated very clearly this alternate view of "rights" which turns the constitution on it´s head. Any government that is not restrained from treading on it´s citizens trying to be a universal provider is bound to become a tyranny as explained so well by Mark Levin in his best selling book. Obama told anyone who was listening to expect all of this before his first election.
Just started reading an excellent book: The Texas Model - Prosperity In The Lone Star State And Lessons For America, by Chuck DeVore, a former CA legislator who moved to Texas. He now works for the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
I´m OK with Texas being the NEW capital of the NEW U.S. Texas will lead the way with its strong sense of independence and reverence for what used to matter in this great country of ours.
The weight of Obamacare is cumulative and as it begins to weigh on them the public will begin to understand. Obamacare´s tax on medical devices has resulted in more than 100 layoffs in two states. It´s just one of many taxes which will come to light as the Plan is implemented.
From the tone of the articles I´ve been reading the last couple of weeks, it is sounding like even the liberals are realizing they will not be prosperous under this marxist thug. Not even off the backs of those of us who make our money the old fashioned way.
This could be a sign that the sleeping giant is awakening.
Most black people would vote for a black death-row serial killer for president before they´d vote for any white guy. Nobody´s ready to say it, but the fact is that the US is in the middle of a race-based civil war right now and it ain´t gonna get better any time soon.
We´re off on the Road to Communism, la la la Multi million dollar bribed Diane Sawyer is responsible for everything that is wrong in the U.S. today. Without her blindness to the truth, without her 24/7 protecting every crime committed in Washington, without her censoring lies, there would otherwise be constant questioning of authority, constant complaining and bickering about the ancient, long term, too many yeear old gangsters who run Congress, and who have allowed a giant, ever growing cancerous federal government. Without all this unpunished guilt from all the self protecting crooks in the Beltway, a puny, crazed, raging little czar hiring king would not be able to function in our capitol He would be caught up in his own crap day after day, he would be ridiculed for the Hitlerian charismatic image he portrays. When all the TV Diane Sawyers can observe the little dictator day after day without criticism, the political part of our country goes sour. Thank god for all the good people in the USA who are doing good for each other, continuing to make the magic of this country work. All the truck drivers, all the growers, all the food chain people, doctors, the good and the bad restaurants, a few non commie teachers. Despite Diane Sawyer, Obama, his commie comrades and a sick, greed addicted Congress, we still have a miracle country we live in.
You can see why a lot of thinking Americans are wondering just what is going on in Washington, DC. As an example, just last week Obama was claiming that while young woman should go into armed direct combat against the enemy on the battlefield, that it is too dangerous for young men to play college and professional football!
Don´t be too heartened by the lib/prog numbers. What this probably really means is the majority of them love the Obama government, but the others think that the fascist Republicans in the House have been too successful in limiting Obama´s right to rule as Dear Leader, preventing him from controlling all our lives more effectively.
At the heart of the mess the country is in is the frightening cohort of functionally illiterate voters that have been, and are being, flooded into the populace from the government schools. These people have no critical thinking skills, are mathematics, language and economics illiterates, have no understanding of the constitution or basic civics, and have been indoctrinated in socialist dogma.
These are the people who elected Zero, and they aren´t going away.

So how´s that two-party "big tent" system workin´ for ya´, America? Y´all have been divided and conquered. Wake up and end the "good cop / bad cop" game that both parties have played to keep it that way.
The nation has been dumbed down and a good majority are young. Basically, we have an illiterate electorate. What´s it going to take to win an national election? The answer...being able to communicate to the masses with simple solutions they can understand. Republicans need to become better sales people and should be required to listen to the great masters of sales techniques.
Trying to communicate the nations fiscal problems is an waste of time. Telling them how much we´re all going to owe in the future is an exercise in futility. It´s negative and fear based. People want to hear something positive and they also want quick fixes. Tell them something they can relate to. Using the word "Jobs" over and over again isn´t good enough. Give them a road map, a plan of action. Put together a private coalition of companies who are willing to participate with internships. Teach the young how to dream about the future. Inspire with stories of successful people. We should recruit these people to help lead us into the future. This is what Romney failed to do and is what the GOP should be talking about this very moment.
Reagan helped create a nation of prosperity that lasted decades by inspiring us to reach for our dreams. He also gave us the utmost feeling of security. We never had to watch our backs when Reagan was at the helm. The country has changed since the Reagan years. We´re a different country now and this needs to be taken into consideration. In other words, we can´t go back. However, we can still be the shining city on the hill as we move forward together. I pray the Republican party can reboot and come back with a winning game plan.
We should revolt. How about everyone claim 12 dependants on their W4, no money goes into the government coffers and we refuse to pay our April 15th tax bill if we owe. Would only work if we had a few million doing this.
The important thing is that this is the "FIRST TIME" recently that a majority is feeling the downward crushing pressure of government and don´t like it.
This must be seized upon: get those ignorant boobs attention and get them informed.
Got to make sure that they know it´s the Dem/Lefties who are the big-government oppressors.
AND, wake up any Repubs who are tempted by "smaller, smarter government," which is nothing but little doses of poison, administered over a longer period of time.
We must seize the moment, not give up. Let´s not forget that the TEA Partiers have been incessantly denigrated, lied about, maligned, defamed.
Let´s not forget that the uninformed are truly uninformed, ignorant: NOT-KNOWING. They have a limited attention span, too.
They have virtually no historical perspective... can´t remember what happened four years ago, or even two years ago!
Why are they so dumb? ignorant? They demonstrate a lack of curiosity; apathy; intellectual shallowness, as they deeply imbibe entertainment and other frivolities leaving they drunk with silliness.
AND, very importantly, the media are fully engaged in pro-Dem/leftie propaganda, agitation and propaganda, as the Bolsheviks effectively used.
But, these folks have been made to think their vote is so important because they´re important. Little do they know that they are the useful idiots, the toadies. Offer them dignity in return for getting informed. Some, but never all, will respond positively.
Never give up. Never ever ever give up. (to paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill). This isn´t the time for "sunshine patriots." (Tom Paine)
Government and Media, birds of a feather, constantly pursue, reach and eventually influence their primary target market: People incapable of thinking for themselves or just too lazy to expend the effort. That’s how we get what we get and what we’ve got.
“Don’t tread on me?” Hardly! “Tread all you want!” is more like it. The Public Sector is America’s textbook example of how not to run a business in The Private Sector.
Ponder this question: If Obama´s main objective was to destroy this nation, what would he have done differently? Hmmm. All the evidence points to -> He is in cahoots with the new USSR, Chavez, and the Muslim Brotherhood...oh, and the U.N. ...who takes our money (that our dummies give them) so that they can shout how much they hate us (and Israel) on American soil. Sad.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.
When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.
Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.
I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."
An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia. If America’s small colleges are nearly broke and our public schools failing, nonetheless our blue-chip universities’ math, science, and engineering departments, and professional schools, remain the best in the world.

It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees. Temperatures in the Arctic region of Alaska are warming twice as fast as the rest of the U.S, causing ice to retreat, sea levels to rise and coastal erosion to increase.

Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group. Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding. The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,
Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law. “The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder,” Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, said at a National Bar Association event in Miami Beach. “I think we have to change these laws so people don’t get
A group of experts advising the nation’s premier cancer research institution has recommended sweeping changes in the approach to cancer detection and treatment, including changes in the very definition of cancer and eliminating the word entirely from some common diagnoses.

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
