Break Time

Dear Readers,

Over the past several years I have scanned many newspapers and articles and tried to bring to your attention those things which I thought were of importance. Clearly, the MSM (main stream media) is being directed by this administration, and transparency, although it was promised, is no where to be seen. Turn from one channel to another on your television and the faces are different but the words are all the same, except for perhaps one network.

Despite the MSM's captivity, there are many excellent independent news sources that continue to bring you the truth and offer balance from people who are concerned about our country and willing to expose what is really going on. You don't have to read every article, but a collection of headlines will give you an enormous amount of information to peruse so you can pick and choose.

I am sure I have omitted many good sites, and in no particular order of importance, I offer you just a few for your review:

We are thankful that with the internet there continues to be valid information for us to discover (at least for now), a balance of news and writers, and with that I will leave you to fend for yourself for awhile, as this writer needs a break in hope of returning to write about the return of this great nation to its roots, the Constitution and the principles upon which this great country was founded.

God keep us in your watch and bless us all.

Memorial Day - Give Thanks

On this Memorial Day may we all remember and give thanks to those men and women who have sacrificed and risked their lives in the line of duty so that we may experience our freedom and remain safe. Those freedoms cannot be taken for granted and we must read and reread our great Constitution and not allow it to be taken from us.

To my family members who selflessly and nobly gave to this country - great uncle (WWI), uncle (Korean War), aunt (Korean War) - and currently, retired Navy cousin and retired Marine cousin, we say thank you for your service.

To the fallen who gave the ultimate sacrifice
and to those still serving,
may we salute you with due respect
God Bless you all

Absent-in-Chief, BP, and Memorial Day

Newsmax reports:

Already under increasing fire for his handling of an oil spill that many experts now say will be the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, President Barack Obama is riling conservatives and veterans with his decision to skip the traditional Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery.

Instead, he will vacation in Chicago.

The decision not only has angered conservative pundits such as Glenn Beck but also has riled military families and others who expect the president to follow tradition on the day reserved for honoring the sacrifice of America’s soldiers.

On Jacksonville.com, run by the Florida Times-Union newspaper, a blogger who identified himself as a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy blasted Obama for being missing in action.

“He is not only MIA for Memorial Day,” wrote Luke Memminger, identified as a professional pilot. “The economy is faltering. The stock market is ready to enter a worldwide dive. North Korea is precipitating a war with South Korea that will involve us. Iran will destabilize the Mideast by developing a Nuclear weapon soon.

“The coastline of Louisiana is being contaminated through inaction and inept leadership from the government,” he continued. “A mosque will be dedicated at Ground Zero on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 massacre. We still have military deployed and fighting in two war zones.

“Where is Obama? Chicago,” Memminger wrote. “Where are those brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for Freedom and Liberty? Arlington Cemetery.”

What has the White House done since the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico since it occurred April 20, 2010? Nothing to speak of. That has been 36 days ago.

Sorry, they have done something: Secretary Salazar signed an order to restructure the Minerals Management Service and the division of its three missions into separate entities... and grow the government; Secretary Napolitano and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson sent a letter to BP; White House put a hold on any offshore oil projects until new regulations can be implemented... and grow the government; EPA has issued a directive; on Saturday, Obama signed an executive order and established a Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, and today the Energy and Environment Subcommittee will hold a hearing entitled “Combating the BP Oil Spill.”

And Louisiana's rich seafood waters and shorelines are imperiled, in a state of emergency, as well as Florida's coastline, making this the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history!

What Recovery

The people in charge of the recovery, never saw the crisis coming in the first place; the real estate situation has not gotten better and is about to get worse, as is the unemployment situation. AND this administration continues to add to our National Debt on a monthly basis, debt we can never repay and that just past $13 TRILLION dollars!

People talk of ‘recovery,’ but it’s now three years after the crisis began and there is no recovery. Instead, there’s another crisis on the horizon.

And now the trouble is, the feds don’t have much ammunition left to fight this US debt crisis. Interest rates are already at zero; they can’t go lower. And the federal deficit is already as much as 10% of GDP.

Besides, it’s becoming clear that all that ammunition fired off so far was wasted! It got us nothing but more debt.

No You Can't Keep Your Health Plan

President Obama guaranteed Americans that after health reform became law they could keep their insurance plans and their doctors. It's clear that this promise cannot be kept. Insurers and physicians are already reshaping their businesses as a result. Continue here...
