~ I was JUST wondering being Obama has become a ‘hit man’ using the ‘Predator’ in the killings of bin Laden, and Awlaki & now Qaddafi, if he will also order the hits on mexican drug cartels. He seems to be enjoying this IMO.

Don’t get me wrong. Good riddance to evil garbage, but sanctioned Assassinationa by a POTUS?! Well the first three letters of that very word is more descriptive of Obama then ‘President’ of our once great, non-socialist United States.

JUST think about the play on words here.

Predator described as:

1.An organism that lives by preying on other organisms.

2. One that victimizes, plunders, or destroys, especially for one’s own gain.

Also describes Obama

— The General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper (originally the Predator B) is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), capable of remote controlled or autonomous flight operations, developed by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) for use by the United States Air Force, the United States Navy, the CIA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection

As in the case of Obama, Grim Reaper:

The personification of death as a man or cloaked skeleton holding a scythe. He has held a scythe to our economy, our capitalism and (fill in the blank).

~ So if Hillary shows up at this border, then you see him camPAIN bragging how he got rid of the cartels single handed ( holding the remote personally for the drone)…then you know that he is in fact ‘Grim Reaper’ personified.

I simply ask you to consider this when deciding:

On May 4, 2010 Obama’s Offensive ‘Predator Drone’ Joke About the Jonas Brothers. Obama has now drawn fire for a crack that some believe shows a disregard for human life.

Seeing the Jonas Brothers sitting in the audience at the dinner, Obama joked:

“Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don’t get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming.”

Even the lib rag, SALON, thought this was offensive & for me that speaks volumes!

“It’s funny, because predator drone strikes in Pakistan have killed literally hundreds of completely innocent civilians,” Alex Pareene wrote, sarcastically, on Salon.com. “And now, the president is evincing a casual disregard for those lives he is responsible for ending by making a lighthearted joke.”

Trigger happy socialist is he not? How much play does this get, as the era of “Bush is a war monger”?

~ This is no longer This Land is ‘YOUR’ land, Imminent Domain is more government officials overreaching…

Bob Valerio’s thoughts were on his country as he waited for a court hearing on whether he would get to keep his business.

“This is not the United States of America that I know,” Valerio lamented. “Does the Constitution mean anything? Obviously, there are no personal property rights.”

For nearly 60 years, Valerio’s family business, Wally and Joe’s Welding, has stood in a squat brick building on a busy highway in McKeesport, Pa. But the government has taken title to his land by eminent domain, forcing Valerio to consider the prospect of closing his doors forever.

“I’m not ready to retire,” says the 64 year-old welder.

Bob has lost his building because the City of McKeesport Sewage Authority used eminent domain to take the property. They say they need the land to expand a sewage pumping station next door. The battle landed in court, pitting Valerio against the government.

“My family has worked at this thing their whole lives, and I’m carrying on the legacy.”

As part of its bankruptcy proceedings, defunct solar company Solyndra will auction off thousands of items from its California production facility on Nov. 2 and 3. But taxpayers won’t see a dime of the proceeds, due to the Energy Department’s decision to subordinate taxpayers to Solyndra’s private financiers in repayment of their investments.

As I explained in a Friday column in the Washington Examiner, DOE has developed an unprecedented interpretation of the law to allow Solyndra’s private investors to recoup $75 million of their investment before taxpayers are repaid.

Heritage Global Partners, which is conducting the auction, told Scribe that the money raised “will not be anywhere near” $75 million, meaning the proceeds will go entirely towards repaying Solyndra’s private investors (though later asset sales may exceed that threshold).

DOE’s legal position is without precedent in the history of its loan guarantee program, as I explain in the Examiner:

Two Treasury Department officials who testified before a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee last week said they had never before seen taxpayers subordinated to private investors in the repayment of a government loan.

Until Solyndra, that is. In February 2011, the Energy Department helped refinance the struggling solar company’s loan in a way that gave private lenders priority in repayment of their loans.

Under the restructuring agreement, the first $75 million of private investment would be repaid before taxpayers saw a dime. Reps. Fred Upton, R-Mich., and Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., who chair the House Energy and Commerce Committee and its investigative subcommittee, respectively, said the restructuring agreement “violated the plain letter of the law.”

The upcoming asset sale includes thousands of pieces of office equipment, computers, power tools, assembly line machinery, and even solar panels. But because the expected returns from the auction do not exceed $75 million, the government won’t recoup any of the taxpayer money used (unsuccessfully) to prop up the company.

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is planning 2-days of campaigning in Alabama.

The Georgia businessman will make a stop in Talladega on October 28th. He will stop at the State Republican Party headquarters in Birmingham to register for Alabama’s presidential primary.

On October 29th, Cain will speak to the West Alabama Republican Assembly in Tuscaloosa before heading to Huntsville.

This is the second time for Cain to come to Alabama. He campaigned in Shelby County in July.

Alabama’s primary is March 13th.

In something of a reverse from most campaign strategies, political experts say a top GOP candidate for president is hoping to take his national name and make it a local one when he visits Alabama next week.

Leading 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will be in Anniston on Oct. 28 as part of his campaign through the state. The Anniston Tea Party will host a breakfast reception for Cain at the Cane Creek Golf Club in McClellan, kicking off a four-city stint that will then take the leading straw poll candidate to Talladega, Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. A press release from the Anniston Tea Party said the event is free and open to the public.

According to Diane Drobny, a member of the Calhoun County Rainy Day Patriots, Cain’s visit was set up through the Birmingham branch of the organization, and his campaign is using efforts from local tea party movements to organize stops in the state.

Thanks to CNBC, the Department of Energy has been caught removing references to “SunPower,” a solar energy company that was given $1.2 billion in loan guarantees, from old press releases

“The changes occurred in two press releases from the Department of Energy’s loan guarantee program — the same program that has been the center of controversy surrounding the failed solar company Solyndra,” reports Eamon Javers of CNBC.

“Both were changed to remove the name of a company that has received negative press attention in recent days, SunPower, and replace it with the name of another company, NRG Energy,” he added.
