President Reagan’s Radio Address to the Nation on the Observance of Easter and Passover – 4/2/83
” The smart set at the Washington Post figures the Republican Party has an “Archie Bunker problem.” The reason? A single comment about “wetbacks” by Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), and the Washington Post springs into action.
There is only one Don Young in the Republican Party. But the Democrats have a “Homer Simpson problem” that dwarfs any stupid comment by a single congressman.
” The Democrats have become the party of Homer Simpson — a party reliant on millions of low-information voters seeking something for nothing. Like the Democrat dependency class, Homer Simpson (D-Springfield) relied on Mojo the Helper Monkey to feed him and even wipe the sauce from his face. The pair eventually gorged themselves into a stupor.
The Democratic Party has become the party that promises millions of helper monkeys. But those of us who work and pay taxes are the helper monkeys for Homer Simpsons across America.
Don’t think you should pay for your own college education? Mojo will make sure people who long ago paid for theirs will pay for yours. Think your neighbor should pay for your health care? Mojo will take care of it. Need a free cell phone? Mojo paid for his, but now he’ll pay for yours.
Homer has no shame letting Mojo do all the work. Homer’s on the take.”
” I’m glad to see a concerned senior Army officer respond to my recent piece on the risks of brain drain inside the U.S. military. Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges undoubtedly speaks for many senior leaders in each service who feel exactly the same way about this looming challenge: “Hey, we don’t even have a problem!”
Maybe, maybe not. Frankly, I remain worried. The issue is not that the best and brightest in the military have already left. My concern is that the worst effects of the ongoing drawdown are still to come — and may well be years away. The people who must ultimately judge whether Hodges’s defense is sound are the junior officers and sergeants wrestling with tough individual decisions about staying in or leaving the service. But for the Army, now is the time to look for leading indicators and craft proactive strategies to avert what could easily become one of the worst unintended consequences of shrinking the force.
Each service will have unique challenges keeping top-drawer talent as numbers drop, budgets tighten, and opportunities to serve in combat dwindle. But the Army most of all faces a perfect storm of vexing issues. It is gradually coming down from a wartime high of nearly 570,000 troops, planning to hit 490,000 by 2017. Most Army leaders and defense analysts expect that number will decline farther — perhaps to 400,000 soldiers or less. Officer and NCO reductions — voluntary and otherwise — under that scenario could number in the tens of thousands.
At the same time it gets smaller, the Army is leaving a decade of combat that has energized the force with an unparalleled focus and sense of mission. The next Army will largely be a garrison force based almost entirely in the United States, with limited opportunities to serve abroad. Even its planned exercise program to rotate units regularly overseas is jeopardized by lack of funding. Convincing experienced combat leaders that this force will be an empowering, exciting place to serve is the ultimate challenge. The bare bones remedies Hodges outlines are not nearly adequate to the task. Fundamental change is needed. Here are a few ways to do it: “

” The first report card for the food industry’s high-profile vow to cut a trillion calories from what it sells each year is coming in the next few months. But some nutrition and obesity experts already are giving the effort a grade of incomplete.
In 2010, 16 food and drink makers made the joint pledge to shave one trillion calories from the products they sell in U.S. stores and vending machines by 2012, and 1.5 trillion calories by 2015, both compared with 2007 levels.
Supporters of the pledge say it is an important step, and that already the North Carolina researchers’ progress in designing a system to count total calories sold marks a major advance in tracking eating habits.
But skeptics point out that the pledge’s big central number represents just 2% of all calories produced by these companies. And it looks a lot smaller on a per-person, per-day basis: just 14 calories, enough to lose just over a pound if permanently taken off the average adult’s diet and far short of the number of excess calories in the average American’s diet in the era of rising obesity rates, variously estimated at between 100 and 220 calories per day.”

” Puffing on a cigarette, a Kalashnikov AK-47 slung awkwardly across his little shoulders, seven-year-old Ahmed stands at a makeshift barricade in Syria.
He is one of the youngest fighters to be swept into his country’s civil war and something in his blank expression seems to hint at horrors that no child of his age should ever have to witness.
The picture was taken in the neighbourhood of Salahadeen, one of the front lines in the battered city of Aleppo.”
Yep. While two billion Christians around the world celebrate Easter Sunday on this 31st day of March, Google is using its famous "Doodle" search logo art to mark the birth of left-wing labor leader Cesar Chavez.
Christians from all walks of life and political views expressed shock, dismay, and exasperation with Google's diss:
How many Peeps can a 50 cal go through? Cadbury Easter Eggs too!
” Just when you think you can’t consume any more pastel Pasqual confections, he makes eye contact with you, that fluffy yellow duck you’ve been dodging all week. It’s Peep season and that means you are likely faced with the guilt of scarfing down 24 marshmallow ducklings or having to explain to the kids why you heartlessly threw them all away.
Luckily there is a third option, in fact here are 8 options for what to do with those Peeps you can’t eat and you can’t bring yourself to toss out.
Of course, if these options fail, there’s always the fallback of blowing them up.
There’s no seaweed, wasabi or soy sauce required to make Peepshi, that’s right, Peep Sushi. If you follow this recipe, you will be able to serve sugary sushi rolls that look totally authentic, and there’s nothing fishy about it.”

” ObamaCare is not popular. It was not popular when it was enacted, and it has not become any more popular now, especially as people have begun to see the fall-out from this regulatory nightmare, such asskyrocketing insurance costs. Many states, which saw voters respond to ObamaCare by electing Republican legislatures in 2010, subsequently enacted bills exempting them from ObamaCare’s costly and limiting provisions. Unfortunately, Obama does not care.
In an interview with The New American, John Doak, Oklahoma’s Insurance Commissioner, reported that he received a letter from Gary Cohen, who is the Deputy Administrator and Director of the federal Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (“CCIIO”). In that letter, Cohen stated unequivocally that the federal government will impose ObamaCare regulations on insurance companies operating inside Oklahoma. Politico reports that Obama’s administration has sent similar letters to Missouri, Wyoming, and Texas.”

” If you want proof of how vicious the mainstream media is when it comes to punishing black conservatives for daring to be black and conservative, look no further than the media’s coordinated attack against the openly conservative Dr. Ben Carson for making the exact same kind of argument about same-sex marriage as Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor did on the exact same day.
DR. BEN CARSON
Marriage is between a man and a woman. It is a well-established fundamental pillar of society, and no group – be they gays, be they NAMBLA [North American Man/Boy Love Association], be they people who believe in bestiality — no matter what they are, they don’t get to change the definition. So it’s not something that’s against gays; it’s against anybody who wants to come along and change the fundamental definition of pillars of society. It has significant ramifications.
Mr. Olson, the bottom line that you’re being asked — and — and it is one that I’m interested in the answer: If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what State restrictions could ever exist? Meaning, what State restrictions with respect to the number of people, with respect to — that could get married — the incest laws, the mother and the child, assuming they are of age — I can — I can accept that the State has probably an overbearing interest on — on protecting the a child until they’re of age to marry, but what’s left?”
Can you guess which statement drew the media’s ire ?
PKM Machine Gun – Closer Look
” David Fortier and I take a closer look at the PKM belt fed machine gun. The PKM is one of the worlds best general purpose machine guns. The PKM fires the formidable 7.62x54R cartridge at around 650 rounds per minute.”
” The obvious question about transforming marriage to mean two men, is why draw the line at two? If we’re going to deconstruct the definition of marriage from a union between a biological couple to a union between anyone, why stop at two?
Ted Olson’s Supreme Court argument in this regard is supremely unconvincing.
“Well, you’ve said — you’ve said in the cases decided by this court that the polygamy issue, multiple marriages raises questions about exploitation, abuse, patriarchy, issues with respect to taxes, inheritance, child custody, it is an entirely different thing,” Olson said. “And if you — if a state prohibits polygamy, it’s prohibiting conduct.
The real issue here is that it is being asserted that one form of non-traditional family is legitimate and the other isn’t based on some mixture of social values and personal taste. And the entire gay rights movement is nothing if not a rejection of social values and taste.”

” An Elm City woman shot at two men who broke into her home on Tonya Road Friday morning, her husband told WRAL News.
Chris Griffin said his wife, who had stayed home sick from work, heard a noise around 11 a.m. and then saw two men outside her house. When she heard them start kicking in the back door, she hid in the bedroom closet with a cellphone and a pistol.
The men ransacked the house, and when they opened the closet door, she fired at them, Griffin said. One man was struck, authorities said.”
