~ Anything but talking about the issues, DEFLECT! Alinsky tactics…Personally I’d rather Romney discusses the ‘Obama Tax’ and REPEAL it:

Rule 7: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time, after that it becomes a ritualistic commitment, like going to church on Sunday mornings.

Rule 11: If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.

NOTE: Also, the target must be personalized, not an abstraction. Because once you personalize it, then you get to see who the real enemy is.

FROM ABC NEWS – Feb 7, 2008: Sen. Barack Obama “called on his rival Sen. Hillary Clinton to release her recent income tax returns – a move the Clintons have long resisted. Strapped for campaign cash, Clinton announced this week that she loaned her presidential committee $5 million of her own personal funds, but it was not immediately clear how she came by that much money.

~ Now let’s do Crumb and Get It a solid and go buy the secret service cupcakes! They Deliver, unlike Obama…

Secret Service officers associated with Vice President Joe Biden bought a pile of cupcakes from the baker who refused to host Biden at his shop — and they did so out of gratitude.

The owner of Crumb and Get It says he doesn’t agree with the Obama administration’s policies.

”Thanks for standing up and saying ‘no’ — then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes,” according to the Valley Reporter (Va.).

UPDATE:

“[O]ur personnel were not involved in making that statement,” U.S. Secret Service spokesman Max Milien told National Review Online’s Daniel Foster. “Milien said there were agents in the bakery, along with (similarly dressed) local law enforcement, but that USSS was there merely to thank the shop owners for their trouble and apologize for any inconvenience the advance team may have caused them,” National Review added.

Moral of this story: If your in the area of Radford VA and this ‘Made it on Their’ own shop, give them your business :) We did it for Chikfil A now lets do it for this young man! ~ JP

Dedicated to my brother (1945-1988) Who loved this song:


The bond of brotherly love can never be broken. Kesho and Alf, two Gorilla brothers, were recently reunited after being separated for three years. Clearly, it took no time for the two to get reacquainted!

The two grew up together at the Dublin Zoo, but were separated when Kesho was sent to another zoo for breeding.

~ Reverse Racism in Play

“The color of your skin is your sin,” the police commander told one of the plaintiffs when asked why he was being demoted and the black officers were not, according to the suit.

Eleven Chicago police officers are suing the city over claims they were demoted from the mayor’s security detail when Rahm Emanuel took office because they weren’t politically connected and aren’t black.

The suit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Illinois, contains explosive accusations that the officers had their civil rights violated after Emanuel took office last year.

The officers charge that shortly after Emanuel was elected in February 2011, the city government began to bring people associated with the Emanuel campaign on board — both those who volunteered on Emanuel’s security detail during the campaign and others who were “politically involved.”

Within a few weeks, the suit says, most of the defendants were removed from the detail “without just cause or any explanation” and were demoted in title, rank and pay. Meanwhile, they allegedly were replaced by Emanuel’s former security detail volunteers and others with a “political connection.”

The demoted officers were sent to work in city police districts. Three of the 11 briefly retained their title, going to work on the detail for former mayor Richard M. Daley, but were soon removed from that detail as well and reassigned.

The suit claims the officers were removed in violation of an order known as the Shakman Decree, which prohibits political considerations in hiring. Further, the officers claim race was a factor, as the black officers on the mayor’s security detail kept their jobs during the administration change.

PIP:

In 1969, one man made his stand against the Chicago political machine. Michael Shakman, an independent candidate for delegate to the 1970 Illinois Constitutional Convention, battled against one of the most enduring traditions in Chicago’s politics: political patronage, or the practice of hiring and firing government workers on the basis of political loyalty. With many behind-the-scenes supporters, Shakman’s years of determination resulted in what became known as the “Shakman decrees.”

Shakman filed suit against the Democratic Organization of Cook County

Commander Brian Thompson, a defendant in the suit who is black, allegedly told one of the officers “the color of your skin is your sin” when the officer asked about the discrepancy.

The officers are seeking to be reinstated with their old title and salary, and are seeking unspecified damages.

One-time blood testing for the presence of hepatitis C, HCV, is now recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for all people born between 1945 through 1965 — baby boomers. …

Welcome to MY World:

and 2/3 of 3.2 million affected are us ~ 3 out of 4!:

Hepatitis C, HCV, is now recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for all people born between 1945 through 1965 — baby boomers. Canada’s health administration has provided identical recommendations for its citizens.

In the past, recommendations for hepatitis C blood testing was recommended for individuals who had a history of one or more risk factors for this viral illness, namely parenteral (injectable) drug use, people who had received blood transfusions or blood products prior to the screening for the hep C virus, which wasn’t identified until 1965. Other at-risk behaviors included unprotected sex with high risk partners or caring for/living with someone known to have HCV.

Research has provided information in recent years to warrant the change in recommendation status to include suggesting testing for all people in the baby boomer generation. One statistic that supports the new recommendation is that 75 percent of all known chronic hepatitis C infections in the United States are diagnosed among baby boomers. Another fact is that most people with a hepatitis C infection don’t even know they have it.

The CDC also reports that a national health survey recently revealed that only 55 percent of people diagnosed with HCV relate a history of risky behavior.

Be pro-active and talk to your health care provider if you are a baby boomer. It may sound trite, but it’s true: The life you save may be your own.

Last week I posted this research piece highlighting Movements.org , a section called “country profiles” that only highlights a select group of six countries. SA is one. We are paying attention…

Iran has warned Saudi Arabia and Qatar that if either country allows Israel to use its airspace, Tehran may retaliate directly against those Gulf nations, according to informed Arab government officials speaking to WND.

One official said that in talks with Gulf nations, Iran “hinted” that a couple of Iranian missiles “may lose their way” and strike Qatar, Saudi Arabia or any other Gulf nation that allows Israel to use its airspace in any attack against Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.

Such threats may help to account for a reported change in Saudi Arabia’s attitude toward an Israeli strike on Iran.

From May of this year: Saudi Arabia and Iran: Is trouble brewing?/

Troops from Saudi Arabia rolled into Bahrain last year purportedly to quell protests but was there another motive, such as a warning to Iran? Iran recently criticised GCC efforts on the Saudi-Bahrain unity proposal. What is the latest escalation in tensions in the Gulf between the two regional heavyweights likely to achieve?

On August 14th…

“Syria the First Line of Resistance”, This is the title of a conference held in Tehran. The aim of the conference is to increase public awareness about what is going on in Syria, the scene of fighting between government forces and the opposition groups supported by the West, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

According to the report, the message was transmitted via the United States during talks with Obama administration officials in Jerusalem.

Saudi Arabia does not maintain an open diplomatic relationship with Israel. But the Sunni Muslim country, together with Qatar, Jordan and other moderates, views itself as threatened by the growing and opposing influence of Iran, dominated by Shiite Islam.

There have been multiple reports of Saudi cooperation with Israel on the Iranian nuclear issue.

The Seattle Times:

Paul Ryan is Scrooge disguised as Pickwick, writes Maureen Dowd. The GOP has managed to find an attractive vessel to mask harsh policies with a smiling face.

He’s the cutest package that cruelty ever came in. He has a winning air of sad cheerfulness. He’s affable, clean-cut and really cut, with the Irish altar-boy widow’s peak and droopy, winsome blue eyes and unashamed sentimentality.

Who better to rain misery upon the heads of millions of Americans?

Ryan should stop being so lovable.
People who intend to hurt other people should wipe the smile off their faces.

From NYT:

Paul Ryan is not a moderate, not a centrist, and certainly not a perfectly neutral non-ideological number-crunching budget wonk. He is a conservative whose fiscal blueprints and budgets are drawn up with conservative goals uppermost in mind. He’s a Reaganite pro-life hawkish supply-sider who wants limited government and the lowest possible tax burden. Out of all the running mates available, Mitt Romney chose one of the most explicitly ideological options.

Against this backdrop, Romney’s choice of Ryan looks a lot like Ryan’s own policy positioning: It was more politically risky than the alternatives, but it was also more responsible. As a presidential candidate, Romney picked his running mate the way he probably made hiring decisions as a businessman. Out of an array of qualified applicants, he picked the man who’s done the most impressive and important work.

From HuffPo:

LAS VEGAS — Hundreds of protesters greeted Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan outside Las Vegas’ Venetian hotel as the Wisconsin congressman prepared for a private meeting with Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson.

Labor unions organized the protest Tuesday night. Workers chanted “Ryan, go home” and waved signs warning that the Republican presidential ticket is the “road to ruin.”
