Obama Pushes Partisan Anti-Violence Plan At Sandy Hook Victims’ Memorial
” President Barack Obama used the Sunday evening memorial service for the murdered kindergartners and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School to launch a partisan campaign that could expand government intrusion into parenting and gun control.
“[The] job of keeping our children safe, and teaching them well, is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors … and the help of a nation,” Obama said at the vigil, which was held only a short distance from the Connecticut school where 20 children and six adults were murdered on Friday.
“We will have to change. … If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief … then surely we have an obligation to try.” “
Obamacare’s Stumbles Pose Political Risks For Dems
” When Democrats suffered their historic 63-seat loss in 2010, a plurality of voters (48 percent) told exit pollsters that they wanted Obamacare repealed. Only 16 percent said they wanted to see the law left as is, and 31 percent said they wanted to see it expanded.
Fast-forward to this November, when Obama won re-election despite winning fewer votes than he did in 2008. Even though the 2012 electorate was far more liberal than the one that delivered Democrats historic losses in 2010, Obamacare actually fared worse in the exit polls than it did in 2010. Just 26 percent of those who voted in 2012 said they wanted to see Obamacare expanded, only 18 percent said they wanted to leave it as is, and the percentage of Americans saying they wanted to see Obamacare repealed was up to 49 percent.
Yesterday, Gallup released a poll showing that, for the first time since it started taking the poll in 2000, a majority of Americans say it is not the federal government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage. Those numbers are likely to rise as Obamacare’s implementation begins.”

” The Democratic message in favor of the PFA is not effective at increasing the vote for Obama over Romney. What’s more, the debate over the PFA reduces support for President Obama among women who already voted for him in 2008 by 12 points, from 87 percent down to 75 percent. And Romney’s support jumps +12-points from 13 percent to 25 percent.
Voters are focused on the real problems our nation is facing – both national and generational in scope. The progressive playbook for defending Obama and attempting to regain the White House is to distract and divide.
What the “War on Women” narrative reveals is how the left chooses to demonize anyone who questions government overreach. Not only is this how they continue to push their progressive agenda – in health care, workplace regulations, education policy, and entitlement policy – but also how they perpetuate the myth of women as victims in need of government protection. “

As usual Frank J Fleming hits the mark :
“Imagine you are at a fast food restaurant. You have selected your sandwich and your side order
of fries, and you realize that this meal will make you thirsty. You will need — nay, you will require — a beverage to wash it down.
So you.say to the woman at the register, “I would like a soda.”
And she looks at you with her dead eyes, her soul withered away by years of menial work in
the service industry, and she utters the immortal question, “Small,medium, or large?” “
…. over Nebraska and Iowa has gotten under the hides of some livestock producers and their representatives in Washington.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s aerial photo surveillance of livestock feeding operations in both states flew under the radar for nearly two years.
But now the flyover program, conducted to help enforce the Clean Water Act, has prompted a demand for answers from all five members of Nebraska’s congressional delegation.
The delegation delivered a joint letter Tuesday to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, listing 25 questions about the legality of the surveillance and the privacy rights of business owners. Although the letter stopped short of calling for an end to the flyovers, the two senators and three representatives want to know more about their purpose.
“Nebraskans are rightfully skeptical of an agency which continues to unilaterally insert itself into the affairs of rural America,” Rep. Adrian Smith, R-Neb., said in a statement.”
The government is intent on running every aspect of our lives and the fact that the EPA has been operating SPY DRONES for two years should alarm EVERYONE . What other agencies are similarly equipped ?
