Senate Democrats Reject Keystone Pipeline & ANWR Drilling In One Easy Vote

…….while 90% of poor and unemployed “BLACKS”, that can’t afford gas for their cars to even look for jobs, will AGAIN vote for Barack Hussein Obama….Wake up, you do NOT have to accept this and vote this looser out of office because as you can see by reading this article he does NOT have yours or mine best interest at heart. These Lib’s think more of “spotted owls” and the “Caribou” than tens of thousands of high paying jobs AND over 20,000 construction jobs.  I think his plan is to wait and see how this election goes and if it’s not in his favor he will then instruct all Democrats in the Senate to approve this right before the election…..I hope you voters will look beyond this kind of ‘political’ maneuvering  ( BULLSHIT ) and while you are home, jobless and poor, Obama & Michelle are flying back and forth from Hawaii on the money you used to have!……Papa  Mike


The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.

But it was just a big pipe dream.


With gas prices at record levels…
Senate Democrats rejected the Keystone Pipeline and drilling in ANWR yesterday in a single vote. EVERY DEMOCRAT, except for Senator Begich from Alaska, voted against the legislation that would increase American oil production.
The Pioneer Press reported:

The Senate on Tuesday resoundingly rejected a sweeping measure to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other protected areas to oil drilling, as well as to approve construction of the Keystone pipeline project.

Tuesday’s vote was the first time in four years that the Senate has voted on a measure including ANWR drilling, and it failed miserably. The proposal needed 60 votes to pass; it only received 41 votes in favor, with 57 senators against.

Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts pushed the measure as an amendment to the bill that funds transportation projects across the nation.

Obama and Senate Democrats blocked the Keystone Pipeline last week, too.

Senator Rand Paul: Let Me Be Blunt!

Will you act at once to stop President Obama and the abortion lobby from unleashing billions of tax dollars for the destruction of innocent, unborn human life?

If so, I hope you will sign the petition to your two United States Senators and Congressman.

The fact is the Obama Administration and pro-abortion politicians in the last Congress pushed through a litany of radical plans to fund their friends in the abortion lobby at a cost of up to 12 billion of your tax dollars.

For instance, they rammed through legislation that:
***    Will directly channel $7 billion in taxpayer funding to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood under the guise of “community health services;”

***    Will force ALL taxpayers to buy “government approved” insurance plans that MUST pay for abortive drugs and procedures;

***    Forces taxpayers to spend millions more to promote the abortion industry’s newest abortifacient drugs;

***    Opens the floodgates of tax dollars for abortion under the guise of “foreign aid,” side-stepping Ronald Reagan’s long-standing “Mexico City Policy.”

That’s why I hope you will sign your petition to the National Pro-Life Alliance at once by clicking here.

Obama And The Dimocrats Think Our Economy Is Good?

Allow me to disabuse you of that idea.

Here are the first 15 of 35 statistics.

The rest are at the link.
#1 Median household income in the United States is down 7.8 percent since December 2007 after adjusting for inflation.

#2 There are 5.6 million less jobs than there were when the last recession began back in late 2007.

#3 The U.S. government says that the number of Americans “not in the labor force” rose by 17.9 million between 2000 and 2011. During the entire decade of the 1980s, the number of Americans “not in the labor force” rose by only 1.7 million.

#4 In 2007, the unemployment rate for the 20 to 29 age bracket was about 6.5 percent. Today, the unemployment rate for that same age group is about 13 percent.

#5 In 2007, 73.2 percent of all young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 that were not enrolled in school had jobs. Today, that number has declined to 65 percent.

#6 Back in the year 2000, more than 50 percent of all Americans teens had a job. This past summer, only 29.6% of all American teens had a job.

#7 When Barack Obama entered the White House, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was approximately 2.6 million. Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million.

#8 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is nearly three times as long as it was back in the year 2000.

#9 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.

#10 According to the Obama administration, about 20 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs back in the year 2000. Today, about 5 percent of all jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.

#11 Sadly, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been shut down since 2001.

#12 Back in 1980, less than 30% of all jobs in the United States were low income jobs. Today, more than 40% of all jobs in the United States are low income jobs.

#13 The U.S. trade deficit with China during 2011 was 28 times larger than it was back in 1990.

#14 About twice as many new homes were sold in the United States in 1965 as are being sold today.

#15 Home prices in the 4th quarter of 2011 were four percent lower than they were during the 4th quarter of 2010. Overall, U.S. home prices are 34 percent lower than they were back at the peak of the housing bubble.

ABOUT HOW USEFUL I THINK THE NEW IPAD IS

 

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0FVm_H_D18&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

Speaking of that iPad, it appears many people are going ga-ga over it. It’s got a camera, don’t you know? I can see events now where thousands of people hold up this 10? rectangle to take pictures or film.

How impractical is that?

And bandwidt costs? Astronmical!!!

As the graphic below shows, you’ll be paying the same price for either 2GB or 5GB worth of monthly data on either carrier at $30 and $50 monthly, respectively; AT&T also offers a smaller 250MB plan for $14.99, and Verizon offers a higher 10GB plan for $80 per month. The trouble is, none of those data caps are actually very high when you start factoring things in like streaming video, audio, beaming high-resolution photographs (one of the features in the new iPhoto for iPad application), or syncing all of your various media files using Apple’s own iCloud storage service. Even some apps, particularly games, can clock in at hundreds of megabytes.

ipad prices

Combine the realities of multimedia file size and a blazing fast connection that allows transfer of said files at unprecedented speeds, and you have a recipe for potentially expensive disaster.

One careless download of a 1080p high-definition movie from the iTunes Store over 4G could eat up your entire monthly plan and then some. In fact, if you could achieve download speeds at the theoretical maximum 72Mbps of LTE, you could blow through a 5GB plan in just under 10 minutes

Obama Falsely Claims Health Care Bill Won’t Fund Abortion

It’s Official… Despite Obama’s Many, Many Promises, Obamacare Funds Abortion After All

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8utEUVrgg0[/youtube]

He lied.

It looks like it’s official. Obamacare will pay for abortions.
Lief News reported:

It’s official. The concern pro-life organizations had about the ObamaCare legislation funding abortions has been confirmed, as the Obama administration has issued the final rules on abortion funding governing the controversial health care law.

Nestled within the “individual mandate” in the Obamacare act — that portion of the Act requiring every American to purchase government — approved insurance or pay a penalty — is an “abortion premium mandate.” This mandate requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that include elective abortion coverage to pay a separate premium from their own pockets to fund abortion. As a result, many pro-life Americans will have to decide between a plan that violates their consciences by funding abortion, or a plan that may not meet their health needs.

Resurrection Painting

Faith is not believing that God can, it is knowing that He will!!!!

Hold onto your hats if you’re wearing one. This is tremendous!!!!

To have such a gift and insight as this painter would be a privilege.

Unreal… Obama Tells Israel Not to Strike Iran Until After Campaign Season

With Barack Obama, politics always trumps national security.

Obama told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to strike Iran until after the November election.
It may interfere with his campaign.

YNet News reported:

White House tells Sunday Times Obama pressed Netanyahu to postpone Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities until after November, adding president ‘might visit Israel in summer’

Israel will only strike Iranian nuclear facilities in September or after the United States presidential elections in November, a White House official told the British Sunday Times newspaper after a meeting between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama last week.

According to the report, Obama has taken Israel’s warnings about a possible strike in Iran very seriously. The Washington source added that the president “might visit in the summer to reassure the Israelis that the US commitment to defend Israel is unshakable and thus thwart a possible autumn attack.”

Obama insisted that any attack on Iran should be postponed until after the US presidential elections in November, possibly even until next spring. The source revealed that Netanyahu consented to delaying a strike, but wished to know until when. “The question is how much time,” he reportedly said.

The White House source added that Netanyahu presented a number of demands Iran must fulfill in order to avoid an Israeli attack, including transferring 150 kilograms (330 pounds) of enriched uranium to a third party, stopping the enrichment process at the Fordow site near Qom and ceasing any further enrichment beyond the 3.5% required for power generation.

The ONLY Far Left Contemptable Lib That Would do Something This Despicable Is “DNC” Ass-Kisser Herself…. Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Where were the “women of the 99%” when women like Sarah Palin, Ann Coutler, Laurah Ingraham, Christine O’Donnell. Sharon Angle, Michelle Malkin and others were called all? kinds of names by progressive men? Why dide the :”women of the 99%” remain silent?

I’m from People with Brains. Congressman Nancy Pelosi is condoning the war on women led by Bill Maher, who has become the de? facto leader of the Democrat party. Call “Congresscritter” Pelosi at 330-xxx-xxxx and ask her why she remains silent while Democrat spokesman Bill Maher insults, degrades, and verbally abuses women. Tell ‘Congresscritter’ Pelosi that it’s just plain shameful that she allows Bill Maher’s behavior to continue. People will be silent mo more…Papa Mike

As reported earlier – #Occupy women of the 99% made illegal robocalls in Illinois (and across the US) attacking Rush Limbaugh over his recent comments on 30 year-old women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke who wants taxpayers to foot the bill for her contraceptives.

The organization “Occupy Women of the 99%” is not a registered PAC or lobbying group. And the group is making the calls anonymously – also illegally.

The Daily Mail posted this robocall that was running in Illinois:

The “Women of the 99%” organization is not a registered PAC or lobbying group yet spent nearly $28,000 in Illinois and tens of thousands more in several other states. Weird, huh?

More to come.

No Joke: White House Organizing Prayer Vigil For Obamacare Outside Supreme Court…

I thought Muslims knelt on their “prayer-rug” while facing Mecca? ….Papa Mike

Dear Chicago Jesus, please use your divine intervention and save Obamacare from racist Supreme Court justice. Amen.”

WASHINGTON — The White House has begun an aggressive campaign to use approaching Supreme Court arguments on the newhealth care law as a moment to build support for the measure seen asPresident Obama’s signature legislative achievement, hoping to shape public opinion on an issue at the center of the battle for the White House and Congress.

On Wednesday, White House officials summoned dozens of leaders of nonprofit organizations that strongly back the health law to help them coordinate plans for a prayer vigil, press conferences and other events outside the court when justices hear arguments for three days beginning March 26.

At the White House meeting on Wednesday, a wide range of advocates representing consumers and people with diseases and disabilities — as well as doctors and nurses, labor unions and religious organizations — discussed plans to bolster the landmark law, which is being challenged by 26 states as unconstitutional.

Supporters of the law plan to hold events outside the court on each day of oral argument. The events include speeches by people with medical problems who have benefited or could benefit from the law. In addition, supporters will arrange for radio hosts to interview health care advocates at a “radio row,” at the United Methodist Building on Capitol Hill.

People who attended the meeting on Wednesday said the speakers included Jennifer Palmieri, deputy communications director at the White House; Jon Carson, director of the president’s Office of Public Engagement; Jeanne M. Lambrew, deputy assistant to the president for health policy; and Mark B. Childress, a deputy chief of staff at the White House.

SICK, SICK…..Episcopalian Leader Who Calls Abortion a “Blessing” Tells Congress She Would Break the Law To Help Minors Get Abortions…

Nothing more vile than liberals using the cloak of Christianity to promote their far-left agenda.

(CNSNews.com) – Were Congress to outlaw the transporting of a minor without her parents’ permission across state lines to get an abortion, an abortion- and gay-rights activist testifying on Capitol Hill Thursday she would break the law to continue to help girls end their pregnancies.

Appearing as a Democratic Party witness at a hearing of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, Dr. Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, president and dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass. recalled the time she took a 15-year-old girl she had never met before to get an abortion.

“Although New Hampshire was closer to that girl’s home than Boston, as it happened, I did not take her across state lines,” Ragsdale said. “Nor did I, to my knowledge, break any laws.

“But if either of those things had been necessary in order to help her, I would have done them,” she continued. “And if helping young women like her should be made illegal I will, nonetheless, continue to do it.”

At a Jan. 24, 2010 event organized by the Jane Fund, a Massachusetts-based group that raises funds for abortions, Ragsdale delivered a speech in which she said she was “angry and fed up” at people who had spoken out again her sexuality – Ragsdale is a lesbian – and her radical stance on abortion.

In the speech Ragsdale defended previous remarks she has made stating that “abortion is a blessing.” A verbatim extract follows:

“When a woman gets pregnant against her will and wants an abortion – it’s the violence that is the tragedy; the abortion is a blessing.

SICK SICK Obama Told The Justice Department, “To Investigate NYPD For Trying To Keep City Safe From Jihadists”…

MUSLIM SYMPATHIZER Hussein Obama, and his BLACK, PUPPET, COOL-AID, ASS-WIPE ‘FAST & Furious’ MURDERING DOJ can do anything they want and not have to answer to anyone…….Papa Mike 

Unreal: Obama Justice Department To Investigate NYPD For Trying To Keep City Safe From Jihadists…

Nothing like trying to keep the city safe from another 9/11 and being rewarded with an investigation by the DOJ.

WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress on Tuesday that, months after receiving complaints about the New York Police Department’s surveillance of entire American Muslim neighborhoods, the Justice Department is beginning a review to decide whether to investigate civil rights violations.

Holder said that police seeking to monitor activities by citizens “should only do so when there is a basis to believe that something inappropriate is occurring or potentially could occur.”

Holder responded under questioning by Rep. Mike Honda, D-Calif., who as an infant was sent with his parents to a Japanese internment camp during World War II and has compared that policy to the NYPD’s treatment of Muslims. The attorney general was on Capitol Hill to discuss the Justice Department’s federal budget.

Gas Prices Be Damned… Obama & Senate Democrats Block Keystone Pipeline Again

Gas Price Hypocrisy

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKdScVerrBU[/youtube]

But that didn’t stop Senate Democrats and President Obama from blocking construction of the Keystone Pipeline today.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released this statement today following the job-killing vote.

“The Democrat-controlled Senate just turned its back on job creation and energy independence in a single vote by rejecting the bipartisan Hoeven-Lugar amendment. They rejected legislation that would have led to construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and the thousands of private-sector jobs that come with it. At a moment when tensions are rising in the Middle East, millions of Americans are struggling to find work and millions more are struggling with the rising cost of gas, Democrat opposition to this legislation shows how deeply out of touch they are with the concerns of middle-class Americans. President

Obama’s personal pleas to wavering Senators may have tipped the balance against this legislation. When it comes to delays over Keystone, anyone looking for a culprit should now look no further than the Oval Office.”

MORE “LIBERAL” HYPOCRISY AND “LIBERAL” DOUBLE STANDARDS FROM OBAMA ASS-SUCKERS

MORE HYPOCRISY AND DOUBLE STANDARDS FROM OBAMA ASS-SUCKERS

Here’s a story about David Axelrod, who, having slammed Mitt Romney for not going after Rush Limbaugh, prepares to go on …… you guessed it! Bill Maher’s show.

Yeah. Bill Mahr. Who called conservative women “cunts” and twats.”

Funny how the Kept-Whores refuse to point out this sort of hypocrisy.

david axelrod

While slamming Mitt Romney for not standing up to the “strident voices” on his side, a top Obama advisor is planning to spend some quality time with one on his own, The Daily has learned.

David Axelrod, President Obama’s senior campaign strategist, is scheduled to appear on Bill Maher’s late-night talk show within the next few weeks, according to Kelley Carville, an HBO spokesman.

As the controversy over Rush Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke continued, a former Obama White House official today joined Republicans in pointing out that Maher, who recently donated $1 million to a pro-Obama super PAC, has a history of his misogynistic slurs.

Last year, he was rebuked by the National Organization for Women for calling Sarah Palin a “dumb tw*t.”

“palin is right to point out that bill maher has said some pretty disgusting things about women, comedian or not. they are rush like,” Austan Goolsbee, the former chairman of President Obama’s Council on Economic Advisors, and currently a professor at the University of Chicago, tweeted.

After Obama spoke with Fluke, the Georgetown University Law Student called a “slut” and “prostitute” by Limbaugh, Palin challenged Priorities USA to return Maher’s donation.

“Pres. Obama says he called Sandra Fluke because of his daughters. For the sake of everyone’s daughter, why doesn’t his super PAC return the $1 million he got from a rabid misogynist?,” Palin wrote Tuesday on her Facebook page.

In a conference call with reporters today, Axelrod invoked Limbaugh on several occasions.
“He’s going to continue to lose independent voters when he walks away from issues like the one involving Rush Limbaugh last week, where he essentially refused to comment on what was a really egregious set of comments by Limbaugh,” Axelrod said. “Why? Because he’s afraid to challenge a guy who’s the de-facto head of his party.”

CATCHING PIGS

THIS IS TRULY THOUGHT PROVOKING.  TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT…….

There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class.   One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter.  The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime.

In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked: “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.  The young man said that it was no joke. “You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn.
“When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming.  When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.

“They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.  “The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again.  You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn.  They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America. The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc..
While we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.
One should always remember two truths: There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.   If you see that all of this wonderful government ‘help’ is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this on to your friends.

Will Thompson

So, lets see now….

His Father, Burnell Thompson, fathered his brothers Burnell, Edgar and his sister Lekiksha.
His Stepfather, Bruce Gordy, fathered his Sister Katina.
His Mother, Esther Allen, must have been unwed when she gave birth to: Larmondo, Mattnell, Burnell and Lester.
We don’t know who fathered Wil Willis and Jessica Willis, or Dante and Reshe Edwards.
Lets hope sisters Shannail Craig and Gwendolyn Carter are married.

GOT THE ABOVE ALL STRAIGHT?

NOW, THE REST OF THE STORY

He was 25 and had 3 sons and 6 daughters.
NINE welfare recipients collecting $950 each per month…..
That equals $8,550 a month !!!
Now add Food Stamps,
Free medical,
Free school lunches,
and on and on …….

Do the math…$102,000+/year.

Anyone out there, sittin’ on their butt while reading this article, making
A HUNDRED GRAND a year doing nothing?

Now that, to me, is a real Entrepreneur.
(ALSO, BECAUSE OF THEIR FATHERS DEATH, ALL OF THE KIDS WILL COLLECT
SOCIAL SECURITY UNTIL THEY ARE 18).

EVEN BETTER…IF “FLAIR’S”
THIRTEEN BROTHERS & SISTERS
FOLLOWED HIS ENTREPRENEURIAL
STRATEGY–THAT’S AN ADDITIONAL
$1.3 MILLION PER YEAR
BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE!

IF ALL THIRTEEN BROTHERS AND SISTERS CAN
DUPLICATE HIS FEAT OF 9 WELFARE STRATEGISTS,
THAT BREEDS 117 NEW RECIPIENTS COLLECTING $100,000/YR!!…OR AN ADDITIONAL
$11,700,000PER YEAR…
&THAT’S ONE DAMN FAMILY
(And it demands 100% of the Taxes Paid by 1,000 average taxpayers).

And THAT is why this once great country is
