Socialist Maxine Waters, a Political Terrorist, Tells Obama to Use All Weapons to Force ObamaCare on an unwilling America

Folks… the Socialists are revealing their true Political Terrorist Natures for ALL TO SEE AND REMEMBER.

Case in Point, Representative Maxine Waters [D- California]

maxine waters

At a town hall at L.A. Southwest College, Socialist Political Terrorist Waters said for the world to hear, it is my way or the highway  as she said she’ll only back ObamaCare which includes a Socialist Takeover of America’s Health care… No Public Option? no support from her.

Statements from Socialist Political Terrorist Maxine Waters:

“[Fifty-two percent of] The people of this country elected you and gave you a Democratic majority in the House and the Senate. . .

We’re [Waters and other Socialist Terrorists are] saying to you, Mr. President, ‘Be tough. Use everything that you’ve got. Do what you have to do. And we have your back.’

Not only are we going to do everything we can to organize and put pressure on the senators — some of whom are Neanderthals — we’re going to say to the president, ‘We want you to use every weapon in your basket in order to get those senators to do what they should be doing…’

Waters is calling Dem Senators non-humans who are not in agreement with the Socialist plan to shove Socialized Medicine aka Government Takeover of Health Care up the ass of America against the will of the majority of Americans.

See: 24% Say Democrats Should Pass Health Care Reform Without GOP Votes

Clearly only a minority of Americans agree with Maxine Waters.

The Socialist Takeover of American Health Care IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN…

Not with 24% support of Americans in favor of it… that equates to only the Far Left Fringe and that… THAT… Dog Don’t Hunt.

Keep it UP Maxine Waters! You Socialist Political Terrorist! You are marginalizing yourself with every word you speak… Nancy “I deserve a personal G-5 Corporate Jet” Pelosi & Barney “The Finance Queen” Frank needs company in the wasteland of marginalized MOONBAT Extremists on the politically endangered list.

    Maxine Waters did not have a Freudian slip. She meant what she said. I do think that this woman hasn’t learned to THINK before she Speak.

    Maxine has a habit of running off at the mouth.

  2. samiam60 says:

    My answer to Ms Waters would simply be:

    ‘We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.’

    ARTICLE I:

    You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

    ARTICLE II:

    You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone — not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of dummies, and probably always will be.

    ARTICLE III:

    You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

    ARTICLE IV:

    You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

    ARTICLE V:

    You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.

    ARTICLE VI:

    You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you get the blue juice

    ARTICLE VII:

    You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

    ARTICLE VIII:

    You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

    ARTICLE IX:

    You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

    ARTICLE X:

    This is an English speaking country. We don’t care where you came from, English is our language. Learn it!

    Lastly

    ARTICLE XI:

    You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, sorry if you are uncomfortable with it.

    Here are some examples of my disdain for Ted Kennedy Karma.

    (1)Beginning with the 1965 bill, which opened the doors for the flood of Latin American and Asian immigrants who dramatically altered the nation’s demography, to the end of his life, Kennedy remained the Senate’s most impassioned advocate for widening opportunities for America’s newcomers.

    ( newcomers should be changed to freeloaders.)

    (Yes, they come for welfare, free healthcare, and other giveaways courtesy of the US taxpayer.)

    (2)A 1986 bill that granted amnesty to an estimated 2.7 million people living illegally in the USA and established penalties against employers who hired illegal immigrants.

    (Amnesty was the goal for the illegal lawbreakers. There would have been no penalties on employers.)

    (3) For all of his accomplishments, Sharry thinks Kennedy will be best known for the work he did with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on a bill that failed. The legislation would have put an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship and plugged holes in the employer sanctions system. It collapsed despite its powerful backers, including President Bush

    ( Amnesty again for the illegal lawbreakers.)

    (4) Sharry remains convinced that Kennedy “laid the groundwork” for a bill that eventually will pass. President Obama has made an immigration overhaul along the lines of the Kennedy-McCain bill one of his top legislative priorities.

    (Amnesty revisited in the future.)

    (5) In the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident, the car Kennedy was driving ran off a bridge and plunged into water, resulting in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and was given a suspended sentence.

  4. Foxwood says:

    I haven’t heard back from Bill, Tellit. I left the same message to him on his blog as I left on mine. He probably wont come back, but I bet he said something on his blog.

  5. Foxwood says:

    Not ignoring you Karma, I’m just ignoring Ted. He deserves no respect. I have plenty of reasons, maybe expressed later, but not today. It’s not nice to speak bad of the dead, but what if the dead where bad?

    I see it as arrogance and a belief of Superiority of the Socialist/Communist Ideology, Arlene.

    She is not ashamed to admit it… and too stupid not to.

    An Invitation
    Today at 8:34am
    FOX News’ Glenn Beck is doing an extraordinary job this week walking America behind the scenes of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and outlining who is actually running the White House.

    Karna said.

    “Most ignorance is vincible ignorance. We don’t know because we don’t want to know”.

    As I said before, Kennedy’s politics differ from mine, and his overall view of the world was far left of mine, but his body of work regardless if he is an opponent or not cannot be ignored. I am not asking anyone to agree, but when I asked for a personal opinion, I had hoped someone could have come up with a reason for there beliefs rather than falling in line with the know rhetoric, and to offer disrespect for the man without either the history or background to illicit such a narrow minded comments, is a disservice to the intelligence I have witnessed on this blog.

    No offense intended, none taken, I stand on my small body of work on my blogs, and comments I make here, but they are my thoughts and are not driven and nor directed by the mob mentality, they are my own, an usually founded in investigation and thought, and finally with an open mind.

    A closed mind is a good thing to lose.
    Anonymous

    Karma,
    If this comment was directed at me If find it troubling and offensive however with that being said I don’t hold any grudges and I respect your right to critisise my comments or opinions if they differ from yours. Please lets not lose sight that we are fighting for the survival of our country by educating the politically ignorant and refrain from taking shots at one another because it distracts us from our mission.

    Ted kennedy reminds me of someone that spent too many years in a High School which happens to be the US Senate in his case. At some point you have to grow up and graduate to move on to more productive things in life.

    We the People are now awake and mobile. Obama has doomed his own Presidency by underestimating the will of the People. All the current poll numbers prove this is a one term President and Congress will be swept clean in 2010. Impeachment will be heard more and more in coming days. Prepare yourselves now as Obama’s Union thugs are now launching a National Bus event to intercede in the health care reform battle. There will now be violence.

  10. tellitlikeitis says:

    Foxwood, Bill won’t be back because he has no facts to back up his argument about politicians knowing or even reading the constitution they were sworn to uphold. I left a video example of their ignorance on your blog. Liberals like Bill run away when you confront them with reality and facts.

  17. rosehips says:

    Hey peeps! Thought I’d weigh in about Teddy. I feel a little sad that there has been so much vilification of the man upon his death. What has happened to compassion in America?

    RIP Ted Kennedy…love him or not, he was a stalwart champion for the poor. I realize that goes against what some here support. He believed that everyone should have affordable health care. He believed that immigrants deserved the same opportunities most of our ancestors were given when they came from other countries. He believed and championed the civil rights of all Americans. He was a voice for the disadvantaged.

    Thanks karma for acknowledging Senator Kennedy despite your political differences. Even most of his adversaries seem to have respect for him because he had conviction.

    Here’s a couple of quotes that represent how many Americans, both liberal and conservatives, feel about the Kennedy patriarch.

    “In a stirring speech at the 1980 Democratic National Convention, Kennedy told delegates, “The commitment I seek is not to outworn views but to old values that will never wear out. Programs may sometimes become obsolete, but the ideal of fairness always endures. Circumstances may change, but the work of compassion must continue.

    “It is surely correct that we cannot solve problems by throwing money at them, but it is also correct that we dare not throw out our national problems onto a scrap heap of inattention and indifference. The poor may be out of political fashion, but they are not without human needs. The middle class may be angry, but they have not lost the dream that all Americans can advance together.” The crowd gave him a standing ovation. Madison Square Garden was filled with chants of “Ted-dy!”
    (Julian E. Zelizer)

    from Ed Rollins:

    “I say this as a Republican and a Reagan conservative who opposed most of what Ted Kennedy spent his entire life trying to accomplish. But he was first and foremost a worthy opponent who with the help of his extraordinary Senate staff always came prepared.

    No one has been a more prolific sponsor of legislation for the poor and disadvantaged. Over the past five decades, Kennedy has been a leader in nearly every major battle for women’s rights, immigration reform or health care. He sponsored more than 2,500 pieces of legislation. And by cobbling together bipartisan support he passed much far-reaching liberal legislation. And he was an adversary ready on any day for the battle.

    I am sure many of my conservative friends will highlight the imperfections of his ever-so-human life. Conservatives and Republicans have vilified him over the years. Millions of pieces of direct mail attacking him and his liberal programs have raised hundreds of millions of dollars for all sorts of conservative causes. He was the perfect target for conservative talk radio and cable television. But he battled back as good as anyone in the game.”

    Prisoners get stimulus checks in error

    AUSTIN — More than 200 Texas state inmates were sent federal economic stimulus checks even though most were ineligible to receive them.

    Most were intercepted by prison officials, but nine inmates were allowed to keep money because they were eligible for the payments.

    The federal stimulus included $250 checks for anyone who received Social Security, Veterans Affairs or Railroad Retirement Board benefits between November 2008 and January 2009.

    Incarcerated convicts generally are ineligible to receive federal benefits checks, officials said. Those who weren’t in prison between November 2008 and January 2009 could legally accept them, Social Security Administration officials said.

    Frank focused on reshaping US finance
    Congressman relishing pivotal role in overhaul

    By Sasha Issenberg
    Globe Correspondent / August 25, 2009

    NEW BEDFORD – US Representative Barney Frank became a YouTube star last week after a town-hall meeting in which he likened a constituent to household furniture, but much of his summer has been spent in uncommon quietude.
    Discuss
    COMMENTS (197)

    As chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, Frank is busy assembling a complex bill to give the federal government unprecedented control over the country’s financial institutions. It is as ambitious as any legislation jolting town halls and cable-news programs, and one that calls upon Frank’s lesser-known skills: discreet negotiation instead of the impatient insult showcased last Tuesday night in Dartmouth, when he belittled a woman who accused him of supporting a “Nazi policy’’ on health care.

    A few days earlier, Frank lamented that voters had yet to be as engaged by the debate over new proposals intended to help avoid the kind of Wall Street risk-taking that pulled down the banking system and drove the country into recession.

    “It’s been eclipsed obviously in the pub lic’s mind by health care, which I am troubled by a little bit, to be honest with you,’’ Frank said during an extensive interview in his district office in downtown New Bedford. “It’s intellectually complex. Politically it’s like five Rubik’s cubes trying to keep the members happy.’’

    Two floors beneath him, a senior center bustled with the sounds of midday bingo, and the 69-year old Frank would probably have flunked their dress code. When he leaned back in his chair, he revealed sneakers, baggy brown trousers slouched around his legs like sweatpants, and a long-sleeved T-shirt with a cartoon head of Frankenstein and the words “Be Frank.’’

    Frank is stuck behind a desk for much of his August recess, a quiet perch from which he contemplates legislative drafts and monitors the shifting uncertainties of his committee’s 70 members. When Congress returns to session after Labor Day, Frank expects to chair a series of hearings and markup sessions that he hopes will generate a single comprehensive bill on financial reform for a vote in the House.

    “He’s got to drive an agenda – not necessarily his own, but the administration’s agenda, some which he may have questions about – and put together a coalition that can get a bill out of committee,’’ said Michael G. Oxley, an Ohio Republican who preceded Frank as chairman and is now retired from Congress.

    Frank says the legislation is necessary to help fend off future episodes of financial panic. Hedge funds and derivatives traders would have to operate under new limits. A financial products safety commission would regulate the consumer marketplace, down to payday loans and check-cashing stores. Federal officials would gain new powers to unwind failed financial institutions.

    In addition, Frank hopes to secure congressional auditing authority over the secretive Federal Reserve, a proposal he describes with phrases – “Ron Paul agrees with that’’ and “secondly, Ron Paul agrees with this’’ – that are jarring coming from a liberal Democrat. He comes close to smiling when describing his narrow alliance with the cranky Texas libertarian and former presidential candidate who is on the committee and whose distrust for the Federal Reserve has led him to propose abolishing the paper money system.

    “I am boasting about this,’’ said Frank. “Being chairman of the committee is different than being an individual member. Your job is to try to get public policy that is going to be workable.’’

    Since Obama unveiled his reforms in June and asked that Congress have them ready for his signature by year’s end, administration figures have complained about the languid legislative pace.

    Earlier this month, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner lashed out at a gathering of federal regulators who he said were slowing the bill’s progress with skeptical comments about a proposal to establish a new authority to monitor investment risk.

    Frank, who elsewhere has had kind words for two of George W. Bush’s nominees, Federal Deposit Insurance Commission chairwoman Sheila Bair and Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, said the administration should not be shocked by the officials’ response.

    “They don’t want to lose their control,’’ said Frank. “What a surprise: Regulators don’t want to lose turf.’’

    Openly contemptuous of Obama’s constant references to bipartisanship, Frank probably has the votes to pass the bill out of his committee without support from Republicans. A similar bill coming out of the Senate will probably be drafted with more Republican input; negotiators will eventually have to merge the two.

    “He knows how to get things done, he knows how to make deals when he has to,’’ said Oxley. “A lot of it is trying to position the House so they can be relevant when that legislation ends up in the Senate.’’

    Reordering American finance may be the biggest project Frank has taken on in his nearly three-decade legislative career, but it is far from a lifelong ambition.

    After his election to the House in 1980, Frank sought out seats on the Judiciary and Banking committees. They were frequent destinations for ideological liberals seeking sway over civil-rights issues: The banking panel’s jurisdiction included areas of urban policy related to fair housing and urban development.

    In the decades since, the committee’s range shifted to cover securities, insurance, and matters of corporate governance, and it was renamed in 2001. Frank became chairman in 2007, just before the world of mortgages, derivatives, and securities dominated the news and focused his attention.

    “The financial crisis took over my life,’’ he said.

    Frank, a lawyer, could be next in line for the Judiciary Committee gavel, but says recent events have made that ambition moot. He said he has shrunk his political portfolio to only two nonfinance subjects: fisheries issues (due to his coastal district’s economy) and gay concerns (“because there aren’t enough of us to go around’’).

    Frank has also turned his attention to raising money for his own reelection and those of Democratic committee members, said spokesman Steven Adamske. Frank has raised more than $750,000 on his own behalf so far this year and has given the bulk to other Democratic campaign committees. Approximately $100,000 of it comes from insurance and finance interests, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, but Frank discounts the idea the money has any influence on his work.

    “In the area that we work in, it’s not campaign contributions that drive it – it’s votes,’’ he said. “The most important influences are the credit unions, the realtors, the community banks – because there are many of them in everybody’s district.’’

    Supporters of Healthcare Reform Start Bus Tour

    Organizing for America, the national network of Obama supporters, is trying to rev up support for healthcare reform with a bus tour that kicks off tomorrow in Phoenix. The “Health Insurance Reform Now” bus will make 11 stops between tomorrow and when members of Congress return to Washington, hitting up Albuquerque, N.M., Denver, Raleigh, N.C., and Pittsburgh.

    The president’s supporters seem to have been drowned out when it comes to healthcare reform, with activists on the right flocking to healthcare town halls around the country and getting a lot of attention for doing so. Conservatives already have a bus, too, the “Hands Off My Healthcare” bus, created by the conservative group Americans for Prosperity. It has toured the country for several weeks, this week stopping in Arkansas.

    Organizing for America is trying to get more attention and is calling for a “massive show of support” from voters interested in seeing healthcare reform get passed. The tour starts tomorrow and is conveniently scheduled around the same time and down the street from Sen. John McCain’s healthcare town hall meeting.

    Here’s the note that was E-mailed to Organizing for America supporters in Arizona:

    I have some exciting news: Our “Health Insurance Reform Now” bus tour—part of a big push before Congress heads back to Washington—will be in Phoenix, Arizona this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.

    We’ll be gathering together to show our support, hearing from speakers—including Organizing for America Director Mitch Stewart—about what reform would mean and how to fight back against the lies, and presenting thousands of Arizonans’ declarations of support for reform.

    Will you join the “Health Insurance Reform Now” bus tour in Phoenix? Click here to RSVP. Here are the details:

    What: Health Insurance Reform Now Bus Tour Stop

    Where: IBEW Hall
    5808 N. 7th St.
    Phoenix, AZ 85014

    When: Wednesday, August 26
    6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

    We want our Members of Congress to head back to Washington with calls for reform still ringing in their ears—and knowing that those who are working hard for reform have our thanks. But we can’t do it without a massive show of support from the voters who know what’s at stake.We’ve been building support for reform person-by-person in recent months, collecting over 1 million declarations of support for reform from folks across the country—and this Wednesday, we are going to join voices and echo one message about where the American people stand on health reform: Let’s get it done. Be part of history—sign up now to join the “Health Insurance Reform Now” bus tour in Phoenix: http://az.barackobama.com/AZBusTour

    Housing Numbers You Don’t See

    As usual, by the middle of the day, I get bored with talking about the headline housing number du jour, and I start pondering some of the numbers that never make it into the general news stream. Today I’m looking at P.4 of the Commerce Dept.’s report on “New Home Sales in July.” I’m wondering why sales of homes “Not started” (i.e. still empty lots) rose 33 percent month to month, while sales of “Completed” homes fell 6 percent.

    “Given capital restraints, and the fact that many “spec” built homes can lead to lower margins, it makes sense that builders are trying to sell more homes on an order basis. In fact this has been the case since late November,” J.P. Morgan’s Michael Rehaut tells me. “If you sell a spec right out of the gate, the margins can be comparable to build-to-order homes, or even higher, because a builder would build a few at a time and reap the efficiencies of that. However, just as often, if not more, specs can take a little longer to sell, so the builder is stuck paying the carrying costs (i.e., interest on the unsold land, fees, taxes), which hurts profitability. Also, many specs are also homes that were built-to-order but the customer cancelled. So builders are often forced to discount specs to sell them, if they’re not sold right away.”

    “A lot of first-time buyers have become increasingly frustrated by the existing home inventory on the market, and are turning more to homebuilders with available product. The process for bidding on an affordable foreclosure for a first-time buyer has become very difficult this summer, mainly because banks & lenders have collectively been letting the listed REO inventory dry up to very low levels. This has bolstered low-end pricing and caused all these “bidding wars” on properties, which has turned off a lot of non-investor buyers who aren’t willing to put in a contract on a house sight unseen. Also, a lot of the listed REO property that hasn’t been snapped up yet is just in terrible shape, and is far from “move in ready”.

    A large part of the completed spec inventory the builders are still holding is simply the wrong product for this environment — an many of those homes are only getting older. Notice the jump in the median months for sale from 11.8 to 12.4. The newly designed, simplified, downsized product is selling well. All those older homes with lots of bells and whistles are still sitting out there collecting dust.”

    Hey Beck is on so I will make this short, everyone of you on here know where I stand in regard to politics. I am not a fan of any Kennedy, never have been! I am not going to sugar coat this, and we can take the discussion to email if necessary.

    I am not going to debate the policies of Kennedy, in a positive or negative way, I just found it in very poor taste to be critical of the guy the day he died, regardless of what you think of him!

    I also felt I was attacked for offering my condolences. IMO, it is easy to get into a rut and only see the bad in politicians, of which there is much to see, but the guy passed 300 bills many in a partisan manner, he deserves respect for that if nothing else.

    If my follow up post pissed you off, we are even and lets move on. I hold no grudges for any of the members on here, including ROSE, we have been together too long to let this kind of shit happen. Now back to the subject, Maxine Waters is a card carrying communist, on that I do hope we agree!!!!

    Like I said if you want to continue this, lets do so and clear it up!!

    NEW YORK — The United Nations is recommending that children as young as five receive mandatory sexual education that would teach even pre-kindergarteners about masturbation and topics like gender violence.

    The U.N.’s Economic, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) released a 98-page report in June offering a universal lesson plan for kids ranging in age from 5-18, an
    “informed approach to effective sex, relationships” and HIV education that they say is essential for “all young people.”

    The U.N. insists the program is “age appropriate,” but critics say it’s exposing kids to sex far too early, and offers up abstract ideas — like “transphobia” — they might not even understand.

    “At that age they should be learning about … the proper name of certain parts of their bodies,” said Michelle Turner, president of Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, “certainly not about masturbation.”

    Turner was disturbed by UNESCO’s plans to explain to children as young as nine about the safety of legal abortions, and to advocate and “promote the right to and access to safe abortion” for everyone over the age of 15.

    “This is absurd,” she told FOXNews.com.

    The UNESCO report, called “International Guidelines for Sexuality Education,” separates children into four age groups: 5-to-8-year-olds, 9-to-12-year-olds, 12-to-15-year-olds and 15-to-18-year-olds.

    Under the U.N.’s voluntary sex-ed regime, kids just 5-8 years old will be told that “touching and rubbing one’s genitals is called masturbation” and that private parts “can feel pleasurable when touched by oneself.”

    • Click here to see the report.

    By the time they’re 9 years old, they’ll learn about “positive and negative effects of ‘aphrodisiacs,” and wrestle with the ideas of “homophobia, transphobia and abuse of power.”

    At 12, they’ll learn the “reasons for” abortions — but they’ll already have known about their safety for three years. When they’re 15, they’ll be exposed to direct “advocacy to promote the right to and access to safe abortion.”

    Child health experts say they are wary of teaching about the sticky topic of abortion, but stress that as long as messages stay age-appropriate, educating kids at a younger age helps better steer them into adulthood.

    “The adults are more leery of [early sex-ed] than the kids are,” said Dr. Jennifer Hartstein, a child psychiatrist in New York. “Our own fears sometimes prevent us from being as open and honest with our kids as possible.”

    Hartstein, however, who didn’t see much harm in explaining basic concepts that kids of all ages will have questions about, was baffled by some of the ideas the U.N. hoped to introduce to kids as young as 5 years old, who will be taught about “gender roles, stereotypes and gender-based violence.”

    “I want to know how you teach that to a 5-year-old,” Hartstein told FOXNews.com.

    Despite those challenges, the U.N. insists that “in a world affected by HIV and AIDS … there is an imperative to give children and young people the knowledge, skills and values to understand and make informed decisions.”

    UNESCO officials said the guidelines were “co-authored by two leading experts in the field of sexuality education” — Dr. Doug Kirby, an adolescent sexuality expert, and Nanette Ecker, the former director of international education and training at the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States.

    Their report was based on a “rigorous review” of sex-ed literature, “drawing upon 87 studies from around the world,” said Mark Richmond, director of UNESCO’s Division for the Coordination of U.N. Priorities in Education, in an e-mailed statement.

    Richmond defended teaching about masturbation as “age-appropriate” because even in early childhood, “children are known to be curious about their bodies.” Their lessons, he added, would hopefully help kids “develop a more complex understanding of sexual behaviour” as they grow into adults.

    But Michelle Turner, of Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, said that such roles should be left up to parents, and worried that children were being exposed to too much information too soon.

    “Why can’t kids be kids anymore?” she said.

    Okay—let me say this again in a different way…Pelosi calls the CIA LIARS that never told her about enhanced interrogation techniques……then that BIG STORY is pushed under the rug, while the CIA is made out to be the bad guys.
    Acorn is ‘supposedly’ being investigated for corruption and voter fraud by the FBI, who has more or less replaced the CIA at the Communist In Chief’s command……
    Okay so who is the “Vanguard CZAR” on the FBI staff that answers to the CIC?????? We have a SERIOUS problem here, imo!!!!
    AND THIS explains WHY NOBAMA got ‘vetted” on that “FBI” background check, that no one has any names to confirm that it was done…….freaking ass hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “We developed the oil fields in the middle east just to have them break the contract and nationalize them, for you who do not understand what nationalizing means, it means when we built them, they were stolen, with no compensation. Thinking about it, after all THEY have done to us, maybe we are responsible.”

    Lisa on your post, about Fannie and Freddy, that Franklin Rains guy the Demogods I mean democrats are defending are protecting a guy that made over 60 million dollars during his tenure at Freddy or Fannie I forget which one he ran. Like the current appointees in the Obama administration he was neither qualified to run the organization, and he cooked the books to increase his bonus, it was Freddy Mac. In short he was a crook, and you have Waters and others protecting him. F’ing politics, and crooks, time to bring out the broom and clean the house!!

  85. LisaInTX says:

    Karma
    You are RIGHT ON!!! They cooked the books, grab the gold, collapsed the market and then DARED blame it on those that tried to STOP them from doing it!

    This is one of thousands of examples Obama’s ‘transparency” that I have been talking about!

    They do this openly without any fear from justice, because justice has been stacked on their side!!!!

  86. LisaInTX says:

    Karma
    Obama wants everyone to be poor.
    Tax Relief for 95 % of Americans = 95% on welfare

    The other 5% will be rich and will include himself and his closest circle of friends!

  90. samiam60 says:

    Anti-abortion groups are gearing up for a battle in the fall over health-care legislation, another headache for Democrats who already face concerns about the measure’s cost and reach.

    Most versions of the Democratic health plan would create subsidies for lower-income people to buy private health insurance. If that insurance includes coverage for abortion, as many existing private plans do, it effectively means federal taxpayers are subsidizing abortion, critics of the legislation argue.

    While it gets less attention than some other parts of the plan, abortion has often been raised by critics at town-hall meetings during the August congressional recess.

    Abortion opponents are funding advertisements targeting key lawmakers. The Family Research Council is running television and radio ads in several states that are home to swing-vote Democratic senators, while the National Right to Life Committee is targeting pro-life Democrats in the House who likely will take the first vote on the measure in September.

    Before they vote, “lawmakers will know this is a bill to set up a big federal abortion program,” said the right-to-life committee’s legislative director, Douglas Johnson.

    Those who favor abortion rights say the bills aren’t giving any special treatment to abortions. National Organization for Women President Terry O’Neill said the conservatives’ proposals would deny many women their reproductive rights. “There is no constitutional basis for taking that away or for any politician to use reproductive health care as a political football,” she said.

    Abortion opponents say they will be satisfied only if a health bill specifically bans all abortion coverage in any federally subsidized plan. They note that Congress has already established similar bans in other federally funded health programs, such as Medicaid, health insurance for federal workers and military plans. The only exceptions are for rape, incest or danger to the life of the mother.

    Obama is rushing so fast to get things out that his handlers did not format his e-mail letter this AM

    Michelle and I were heartbroken to learn this morning of the death of our dear friend, Senator Ted Kennedy. For nearly five decades, virtually every major piece of legislation to advance the civil rights, health and economic well-being of the American people bore his name and resulted from his efforts. His ideas and ideals are stamped on scores of laws and reflected in millions of lives — in seniors who know new dignity; in families that know new opportunity; in children who know education’s promise; and in all who can pursue their dream in an America that is more equal and more just, including me. In the United States Senate, I can think of no one who engendered greater respect or affection from members of both sides of the aisle. His seriousness of purpose was perpetually matched by humility, warmth and good cheer. He battled passionately on the Senate floor for the causes that he held dear, and yet still maintained warm friendships across party lines. And that’s one reason he became not only one of the greatest senators of our time, but one of the most accomplished Americans ever to serve our democracy. I personally valued his wise counsel in the Senate, where, regardless of the swirl of events, he always had time for a new colleague. I cherished his confidence and momentous support in my race for the Presidency. And even as he waged a valiant struggle with a mortal illness, I’ve benefited as President from his encouragement and wisdom. His fight gave us the opportunity we were denied when his brothers John and Robert were taken from us: the blessing of time to say thank you and goodbye. The outpouring of love, gratitude and fond memories to which we’ve all borne witness is a testament to the way this singular figure in American history touched so many lives. For America, he was a defender of a dream. For his family, he was a guardian. Our hearts and prayers go out to them today — to his wonderful wife, Vicki, his children Ted Jr., Patrick and Kara, his grandchildren and his extended family. Today, our country mourns. We say goodbye to a friend and a true leader who challenged us all to live out our noblest values. And we give thanks for his memory, which inspires us still. Sincerely, President Barack Obama

    NEW YORK (CNN) — Over the course of this summer, President Obama’s approval ratings have plummeted among independent voters — the largest and fastest-growing segment of the American electorate.

    In May, 66 percent of independents approved of Obama’s job performance, according to the Gallup Poll.

    By August, Gallup showed the president was supported by 49 percent of independents, a collapse during the health care debate that reflects independents’ dislike of deficit spending, the growth of big government and one-party control of Washington.

    It’s a particular problem for Obama because post-honeymoon perceptions are hardening in ways that are counter to his core campaign promise to bridge partisan divides.

    Obama introduced himself to the American people by saying, “There are no red states; there are no blue states; there is only the United States of America.”

    He won virtually every swing state in 2008 as well as 60 percent of centrists, won independents by an 8-point spread, and even won 20 percent of self-described conservatives. But right now he is presiding over a period of increased partisan polarization, with nearly 90 percent of Democrats supporting his efforts and 5 percent of Republicans doing so.

    Independents hold the balance of power in American politics. Their ranks have rocketed during the Obama presidency as the two parties have become more polarized, hitting an unprecedented 41 percent of the electorate in July, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll. At the same time, identification with both Democrats and Republicans has declined.

    FDIC heading into the Red:

    NEW YORK — The coffers of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. have been so depleted by the epidemic of collapsing financial institutions that analysts warn it could sink into the red by the end of this year.

    That has happened only once before — during the savings-and-loan crisis of the early 1990s, when the FDIC was forced to borrow $15 billion from the Treasury and repay it later with interest. The government agency that guarantees depositors against the loss of their money in a bank failure may need its own lifeline.

    The FDIC on Thursday will disclose how much is left in its insurance fund, and update the number of banks on its list of troubled institutions. That number shot up to 305 in the first quarter — the highest since 1994 and up from 252 late last year. FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair may also use the quarterly briefing to discuss how the agency plans to shore up its accounts.

    Small and midsize banks across the country have been hurt by rising loan defaults in the recession. When they fail, the FDIC is responsible for making sure depositors don’t lose a cent.

    It has two options to replenish its insurance fund in the short run: It can charge banks higher fees or it can take the more radical step of borrowing from the U.S. Treasury.

    None of this means bank customers have anything to worry about. The FDIC is fully backed by the government, which means depositors’ accounts are guaranteed up to $250,000 per account. And it still has billions in loss reserves apart from the insurance fund.

    Because of the surging bank failures, the FDIC’s board voted Wednesday to make it easier for private investors to buy failed financial institutions.

    Private equity funds have been criticized for taking too many risks and paying managers too much. But these days fewer healthy banks are willing to buy ailing banks, and the depth of the banking crisis appears to have softened the FDIC’s resistance to private buyers.

    Under the new rules, a buyer would need to maintain the failed bank’s reserves at levels equal to 10 percent of its assets. An earlier proposal set the requirement at 15 percent.

    The new policy also eases the rules on when private investors must maintain minimum levels of capital that might be needed to bolster banks they own.

    But the FDIC sought to guard against private equity funds that might want to quickly buy and sell at a profit: It required the investors to maintain a bank’s minimum capital levels for three years.

    At least in theory, allowing private investors to buy failing banks would mean the FDIC could charge a higher price, shrinking the amount of losses the agency would have to cover.

    Bair has not ruled out hiking premiums on banks for the second time this year or asking the Treasury for a short-term loan. She has said taking the longer-term step of drawing on the Treasury credit line is only for emergencies.

    So far this year, 81 banks have failed, compared with just 25 last year — and only three in 2007. Hundreds more banks are expected to fall in coming years because of souring loans for commercial real estate. That threatens to deplete the FDIC’s fund.

    “I think the public should expect the fund to go negative at some point,” said Gerard Cassidy, a banking analyst at RBC Capital Markets, which has predicted that up to 1,000 banks — or one in eight — could disappear within three years.

    Either lifeline for the FDIC carries risks. Borrowing from the Treasury could be seen as another taxpayer bailout. But charging more in premiums would shrink profits at healthy banks, squeeze troubled ones and make lending even tighter.

    “The more you levy these assessments on banks, the less money they have to lend to the general population,” said Camden Fine, president of the Independent Community Bankers of America, an industry group that represents 5,000 banks.

    Last week’s failure of Guaranty Bank in Texas, the second-largest this year, is expected to cost the FDIC $3 billion. The FDIC recorded more than $19 billion in losses just through March.

    The agency figures it will need $70 billion to cover bank failures through 2013, more than five times the $13 billion that was in the fund in March. The last time it was that low was during the S&L crisis in 1992, when the fund was down to $178 million.

    Some critics say regulators have taken too long to shut down troubled banks. Chicago’s Corus Bankshares, for example, has staggered for weeks under the weight of bad real estate loans.

    FDIC spokesman Andrew Gray said the agency seeks to strike a balance between helping troubled banks work through their problems “so there’s zero cost to the deposit fund,” and intervening quickly if there are no other options.

    “Be My Baby” Songwriter Ellie Greenwich Dead at 68

    8/26/09, 2:38 pm EST

    Photo: Michael Ochs Archive/Getty
    Ellie Greenwich, a songwriter who along with producer Phil Spector and co-writer Jeff Barry crafted some of the biggest and greatest singles of the 1960s, passed away at the age of 68. The AP reports that Greenwich died of a heart attack in New York’s Roosevelt Hospital, where she was battling pneumonia. Among the most famous songs that list Greenwich as a songwriter are the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” and “Baby, I Love You,” the Shangri-La’s “Leader of the Pack,” the Dixie Cups’ “Chapel of Love,” Tina & Ike Turner’s “River Deep, Mountain High” and the Crystals’ “Then He Kissed Me” and “Da Doo Ron Ron.” Each of those landmark tracks were listed among Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

    Discovered by famed songwriters Leiber and Stoller, Greenwich’s other major hits include Manfred Mann’s “Doo Wah Diddy Diddy,” Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” and Tommy James’ and the Shondells’ “Hanky Panky.” Greenwich and Barry also helped nurture the career of a fledgling singer-songwriter named Neil Diamond, and Greenwich and Barry produced and contributed background vocals to Diamond hits like “Kentucky Woman,” “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon,” “Cherry, Cherry,” “Red, Red Wine” and “I’m a Believer.”

    Greenwich, along with Barry, was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame in 1991. A Broadway show dedicated to songs co-written by Greenwich and based on her life called Leader of the Pack debuted on Broadway, where it was nominated for a Best Musical Tony in 1985. Greenwich also recorded her own solo album, Ellie Greenwich Composes, Produces and Sings, in 1968, and often sang backup for artists like Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Dusty Springfield. The family asks that donations be made to the VH1 Save the Music Foundation.

    The Shangri-Las: “Leader of the Pack”

    The Shangri-Las: “Out in the Streets”

    Maxine Waters cannot even do simple arithmetic. Fifty two percent of the people in this country did not vote for Obama. Only fifty two percent of those who voted cast their ballots for Barry. That Sixty Five Million is not fifty percent of the people who live in this country of over Three Hundred Million. Also only about One Hundred Thirty Milliom of eligible voters cast ballots. There are over Two Hundred million eligible voters. Again Sixty Five Million is not a majority. In fact, when apathetic America wakes up and understands what is going on in this country and decides to participate then Sixty Five Million will be a decided minority. Let’s see how far Waters gets then in shoving stuff down the people’s throat.

    How can she use the percentage of people who elected Obama, and not include the percentage who WANT Obama’s No credibility government takeover guised as “healthcare” plan.

    – Liberal Fascist and Hypocrite.

    I have investigated the incident of the window smashing at a DEM office and the bickering and political finger pointing between DEM Chairman Pat Waak and Colorado State GOP Chairman Dick Wadhams.

    It presently appears Pat Waak has now stopped blaming the GOP for this after doing so based on unfounded specualtion. Typical MOONBAT TACTICS…

    That Pat Waak used the incident to blame the GOP as a weapon of the DEM party promotion of ObamaCare was a typical Moonbat stunt and disgraces all DEM members.

    It now appears Maurice Schwenkler is against Both Parties and was looking to stoke the fires of confrontation between both parties.

    That Maurice Schwenkler is a legally female female-to-male trans-sexual is only remotely interesting. That this person is a member of an organized anarchist group in Denver, which is called Denver Bash Back, is interesting.

    For a chronology of this unfolding story, see the Denver Post Articles on this list: http://search.denverpost.com/sp?keywords=Maurice+Schwenkler+&aff=1100&skin=100&searchbutton.x=11&searchbutton.y=8

    excerpt:

    When news of the window smashing hit, state Democratic chairwoman Pat Waak initially blamed conservatives for stoking animosity around the health care debate.

    Republicans later rejoiced when it was revealed Schwenkler had worked for a Democratic candidate in 2008 and alleged the vandalism was an attempt to frame conservative opponents to Obama’s proposal.

    State GOP chairman Dick Wadhams demanded an apology from Waak.

    She made “sweeping generalizations that if you’re opposed to (Obama’s health care) plan, you’re capable of that kind of despicable act,” he said.

    Now it appears possible that Schwenkler ascribes to neither political ideology.

    Bash Back is a group of radical gay, lesbian and transgender individuals who began organizing in 2007 to protest the Republican and Democratic national conventions, according to its website.

    here’s a comment on the news story VF posted:

    Please, this is an attempt to make people that don’t support Obama to look bad. Here is what the truth is:
    – It is a Democratic paid actor
    – It is a supporter of Obama
    – It is a fascist
    – It is employed by the Democrats

    This was an attempt by Democrats to spark hatred and violance against conservatives.

    The same thing the Nazis did in 1933. The Democrats today are the same as the fascists of yesterday. Democrat is just another word for fascist.

    no doubt the Socialists will stoop to levels below whale crap to jam ObamaCare up the ass of America… but the facts are emerging… I refrain from jumping to conclusions at this point and feel focusing on the aspect of this person being a trans-sexual just makes Conservatives look homophobic to the public, in my opinion, which is a DEM weapon often used against Conservatives.

    KENNEDY – KGB COLLABORATION

    Originally published 08:42 p.m., October 27, 2006, updated 12:00 a.m., October 28, 2006

    History has long since vindicated Ronald Reagan’s Cold War policy. Even Sen. Ted Kennedy, whom no one would accuse of harboring pro-Reagan sympathies, had to admit that Mr. Reagan “will be honored as the president who won the Cold War.” But opinions have not always been so united.

    In his new book, “The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism,” Grove City College professor Paul Kengor sheds light on a letter written by KGB head Viktor Chebrikov to Soviet leader Yuri Andropov. The letter is dated May 14, 1983, right as the debate was heating up over Mr. Reagan’s proposed deployment of intermediate-range nuclear weapons in Western Europe to counter the Soviets’ medium-range rockets in Eastern Europe.

    Most Democrats and much of the left were universally opposed to Mr. Reagan’s plan, which they argued would lead to nuclear war. Heading the list of critics was Mr. Kennedy, who had, according to the Soviet letter, sent former Sen. John V. Tunney to meet with Kremlin leaders. Chebrikov writes that Mr. Kennedy “charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to… Andropov.”

    According to the letter, Mr. Kennedy was concerned with “Reagan’s belligerence,” which he felt was in part the result of the president’s popularity. “The only real threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” wrote Chebrikov, relaying Mr. Tunney’s message. “These issues, according to [Mr. Kennedy], will without a doubt become the most important of the [1984] election campaign.”

    The letter goes on to say how Mr. Kennedy felt that the Soviets’ peaceful intentions were being “quoted out of context, silenced or groundlessly and whimsically discounted.” Conversely, Mr. Reagan “has the capabilities to counter any propaganda.” In other words, if the letter is to be believed, Mr. Kennedy felt his own president was the real aggressor.

    Mr. Kennedy had two proposals for Andropov, according to Chebrikov. First, he asked for a meeting later that summer in order “to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA.” Second, that “Kennedy believes that in order to influence Americans it would be important to organize … televised interviews with [Andropov] in the USA.”

    If Chebrikov’s account of events is accurate, it’s clear Mr. Kennedy was actively engaging the Russians to influence the 1984 election. He also seems to have genuinely believed that Mr. Reagan’s policies were endangering U.S.-Soviet relations and that the best solution was to get Mr. Reagan out of office. The letter closes with Chebrikov saying that “Tunney remarked that the senator wants to run for president in 1988,” possibly suggesting Mr. Kennedy had other, more selfish motives.

    As Mr. Kengor concludes, “if the memo is in fact an accurate account of what transpired, it constitutes a remarkable example of the lengths to which some on the political left, including a sitting U.S. senator, were willing to go to stop Ronald Reagan.”

    We agree. Even in a jaded world, it is breathtaking to discover a U.S. senator — brother of a former president — actively and secretly collaborating with Soviet leaders in an attempt to undermine the president of the United States’ nuclear defense policy during the height of the cold war.

    John Maynard Keynes was a champion of the elite money changers, an intelligentsia proponent of the dismal science of phoney money – a hired gun. Keynes did not get much right regarding monetary theory, however, in one of his more lucid moments he hit the mark when he stated:

    “Lenin was right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”

    FDIC’s Fund Plunges 20% As Banking Industry Posts Loss

    With bank failures rising, the government’s deposit insurance fund fell 20 percent to $10.4 billion in the second quarter as U.S. banks lost $3.7 billion.

    The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said Thursday that surging levels of soured loans at banks dragged down profits in the April-June period. The $3.7 billion loss compared with profits of $7.6 billion in the first quarter, and $4.7 billion a year ago.

    The FDIC also said the number of banks deemed to be in trouble jumped to 416 from 305 at the end of the first quarter. That’s the highest number since June 1994 during the savings and loan crisis.

    Total assets of troubled institutions surged to $299.8 billion from $220 billion in the first quarter.

    Eighty-one banks have failed so far this year, and hundreds more are expected to fall in coming years because of souring loans for commercial real estate. That threatens to deplete the FDIC’s fund, which guarantees deposits of up to $250,000 per account.

    Slideshow: The World’s Safest Banks in 2009
    The new level of the insurance fund puts the ratio at 0.22 percent, compared with the congressionally mandated minimum of 1.15 percent.

    The FDIC said nearly 66 percent of banks and savings and loans reported earnings below those in the second quarter of 2008, and more than a quarter posted a net loss.

    “While challenges remain, evidence is building that the U.S. economy is starting to grow again,” FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair said in a statement. “The banking industry, too, can look forward to better times ahead. But for now, the difficult and necessary process of recognizing loan losses and cleaning up balance sheets continues to be reflected in the industry’s bottom line.”

    The 8,195 federally insured banks and thrifts set aside $66.9 billion in the second quarter to cover potential loan losses, up from $60.9 billion a year earlier.

    The FDIC’s insurance fund has been so depleted by the epidemic of collapsing financial institutions that analysts warn it could sink into the red by the end of this year.

    That has happened only once before—during the savings-and-loan crisis of the early 1990s, when the FDIC was forced to borrow $15 billion from the Treasury and repay it later with interest.

    Small and midsize banks nationwide have been hurt by rising loan defaults in the recession. When they fail, the FDIC is responsible for making sure depositors don’t lose a cent.

    It has two options to replenish its insurance fund in the short run: It can charge banks higher fees or it can take the more radical step of borrowing from the U.S. Treasury.

    None of this means bank customers have anything to worry about. The FDIC is fully backed by the government, which means depositors’ accounts are guaranteed up to $250,000 per account. And it still has billions in loss reserves apart from the insurance fund.

    Because of the surging bank failures, the FDIC’s board voted Wednesday to make it easier for private investors to buy failed financial institutions.

    Private equity funds have been criticized for taking too many risks and paying managers too much. But these days fewer healthy banks are willing to buy ailing banks, and the depth of the banking crisis appears to have softened the FDIC’s resistance to private buyers.

    Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, according to the 9-11 commission report, was the mastermind of the Oct. 12, 2000, attack on the U.S.S. Cole that killed 17 U.S. sailors.

    Nashiri was also the target of an “unauthorized” CIA interrogation technique (that had not been legally vetted by the Justice Department) that is described in a May 7, 2004, CIA inspector general’s report that was partially declassified by the Obama administration this week.

    CIA officers blew smoke in Nashiri’s face, according to the report, and they used cigars.

    The IG’s office described this smoke-blowing as one of several “unauthorized or undocumented techniques” it discovered had been used in isolated incidents by CIA employees interrogating high-level al-Qaida terrorists.
