Time Offers Readers The Opportunity To Vote For First Woman On The Dollar Bill

 

 

Woman Dollar Bill Poll

 

 

 

” Eleanor Roosevelt? Harriet Tubman? Beyoncé? Cast your vote in the poll below.

  Is it time to put a woman on our paper currency? President Obama went on record today saying it’s a “pretty good idea.” During a speech in Kansas City, Obama said he received a letter from a young girl asking why there aren’t any women on American paper money. (Dollar coins with Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea are still in circulation, but they are no longer being minted, and Martha Washington appeared on a paper note in the 19th century.)

  Well, if Congress is taking suggestions… who do you think should get the honor? Take our poll: “

 

 

    Two things strike us about this poll … firstly that Ayn Rand Is the runaway leader but even more-so the fact that Time Inc included her in the first place . Ayn Rand rocks … Go cast your ballot . We don’t imagine that these are the results that either Obama or Time had in mind .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fewer Americans Think Obama Respected On World Stage

 

Trend: Americans' Perceptions of President Obama's World Standing

 

” For the first time, more Americans think President Barack Obama is not respected by other world leaders than believe he is. Americans’ opinions have shifted dramatically in the past year, after being relatively stable from 2010 to 2013.

  The results are based on Gallup’s annual World Affairs poll, conducted Feb. 6-9. Although opinions about a president’s perceived world standing often track with his job approval rating, a majority of Americans still thought world leaders respected Obama in 2010 and 2011, when his job approval was similar to what it is now. Thus, the recent decline may be more tied to specific international matters from the past year, such as the revelation the U.S. was listening in on foreign leaders’ phone calls, the situation in Syria, increased tensions with Russia, and an uneasy relationship between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.”

 

 

   All we can say is “What took so long?” The MSM has lost it’s mojo and can no longer keep the present administration’s incompetence under wraps . It’s about effing time . People are finally starting to pay attention . Too bad he gets another three years to continue the destruction of America .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Boehner Puts Conditions In Place That Mean Amnesty Is Dead In The House

 

” So, how did proponents of amnesty hope to get a bill through the House if only a handful of Republicans would vote for it? Simple, they wanted John Boehner to betray his caucus.

Boehner had already explicitly said that he wouldn’t violate the Hastert rule by bringing a bill up that the majority of his caucus opposed, but he has now gone a step further than that.

Speaker John Boehner said at a press conference today that for “any legislation — including a conference report — to pass the House, it’s going to have to be a bill that has the support of a majority of our members.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

REVEALED: ALLEGED DEMOCRATIC SCHEME TO GERRYMANDER FLORIDA

 

 

” While Democrats have attacked Republicans for allegedly gerrymandering their way to a congressional majority in 2012, evidence suggests that Democrats may have behaved in precisely the same way. The Washington Free Beacon obtained records this Friday of emails sent between Democratic party officials suggesting that Florida had been deliberately gerrymandered along racial lines to maximize the chance of Democratic success in the state, possibly even with the approval of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

The Free Beacon reports:

“For several months the Florida Democratic Party has engaged in a legal fight over redistricting in Florida,” Florida Democratic chair Rod Smith wrote to a representative of the Teamsters Union in March 2012. “We believe that Florida can be turned from red to blue if we are successful in our efforts.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Republican Senate ?

Nate Silver: 2014 GOP Could Win Senate

” Twenty-one of the 35 seats up for election are now held by Democrats,” Silver penned on Wednesday.

“ Moreover, most the states that will be casting ballots for the Senate in 2014 are Republican leaning: 7 of the 21 Democratic-held seats are in states carried by the former Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, while just one of the Republican seats is in a state won by President Obama.”

  With all eyes on SCOTUS today we’ve deliberately remained silent . Not without opinion , but out of deference to the multitude of bloggers with legal backgrounds that can offer the public their expertise .

    We are from the business world and as such can offer only common sense and a historical kind of sense as to our understanding of the Constitution , the Founders and their ideas of liberty .

  That being said , our initial reaction to the Roberts Court’s finding was a feeling of being sold down the river . We are sorry to say that this post at Volokh Conspiracy merely serves to amplify the feeling that Roberts caved to media/political pressure .

   Tax , Commerce , who cares what you call it ? A Mandate is a Mandate . Where does that fact that the citizens can be forced to BUY something fit into the concept of individual liberty ?

” Scalia’s dissent, at least on first quick perusal, reads like it was originally written as a majority opinion “
