The GOP is attempting to slice and dice the VAWA no differently than the abortion issue

Eric Cantor is attempting to sterilize VAWA. He is attempting to isolate the Tribal Women ? problem ? so the GOP can remain HOLY and exclusive from lesbians.

Ms. Alex Wagner has done a great job with the issue during her presentation of it. So, allow me to help with the topic a bit. Yes, it is racism, but, it is also an attempt as a wedge issue.

If I may?

This should be a very interesting picture to Eric Cantor. It is a Native American women. Her name is Susan Allen. She was elected to the Minnesota State House. You know the same state what's her name is from ?????? Oh, yeah, Michele Bachmann.

...“We’re thrilled for Susan and the remarkable progress her victory represents,” said Tiffany Muller of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund. “This is our first win of 2012, and it’s a fantastic way to start off what will be a very exciting year for LGBT candidates.”...

Susan's victory is rather interesting. It was after a very contentious debate over a marriage amendment for the state. The public obviously didn't like the ideology within the state house and believed a lesbian was best to elect to make it known that everyone belongs in Minnesota in a meaningful way.

GOP women value one thing. Primarily. That is a sterile holy environment for families. That means in order to define their dominance in the country there can be no abortion, no gay rights and the list is long. No public schools to educate outside the strict interpretation of their Christian conservative dogma. Etc.

So, GOP men literally go around attempting to function in the real world while their women do not. Hence, Eric Cantor. The women are anti-social. To them anti-social means they only invite the best people for their tea parties. Literally, tea and crumpets. But, they don't realize their attitudes and platitudes are actually a social disorder.

So, the men involved with these supposedly heterosexual women attempt to make every act of Congress conducive to good Christian sex. Some might have pity on these men, but, I say "Hell, they asked for it." Blood Diamond Rings and all.

So, while Ms. Wagner seeks the best of her panel to sort out some kinda logic out of the words of a tortured man, it ain't gonna happen unless she realizes how completely idiotic the lives are of men like Eric Cantor.

To Eric Cantor, I say, "Eric, there is a lesbian woman in the Minnesota State House that is a Native American and some day she might fall under the Violence Against Women Act. There goes your soul, bro."

The President wants a Big Deal now. Chained CPI is a very big deal.

Q: Can you clarify for me very clearly? (click here) Is the president open to raising the eligibility age for Medicare?
Q: Absolutely not?
MR. CARNEY: The president’s made clear that we don’t believe that that’s the right policy to take. [...]
Q: What about reducing the annual cost-of-living increases for Social Security recipients?
MR. CARNEY: Again, as part of a big deal, part of a comprehensive package that reduces our deficit and achieves that $4 trillion goal that was set out by so many people in and outside of government a number of years ago, he would consider the hard choice that includes the so-called chained CPI — in fact, he put that on the table in his proposal — but not in a cherry-picked or piecemeal way. [...]
He has put forward, as a technical change, as part of a big deal—and it’s on the table that he put forward to the speaker of the House. [...] But as part of that deal, a technical change in the so-called CPI is possible and is on offer as part of a big deal.

Dick Cheney has no valid opinions.

He lied to the nation the entire time he was in office, so what makes him so correct now? He doesn't even have current information. He should enjoy his retirement and go shoot some birds.

30,000 gun deaths per year is only half of the gun deaths in the USA when suicide gun deaths are added.

The 30,000 guns deaths per year in the USA do not include the gun deaths by suicide in the USA. The 30,000 per year of gun deaths is only HALF of what is occurring.

...This is from the CDC (click here) (Center for Disease Control) 2006-2007.Violence-related firearm deaths remain an important public health concern in the United States. During 2006–2007, a total of 25,423 firearm homicides and 34,235 firearm suicides occurred among U.S. residents (1). These national totals include 4,166 firearm homicides and 1,446 firearm suicides among youths aged 10–19 years; the rate of firearm homicides among youths slightly exceeded the rate among persons of all ages....

Nugent better behave himself. The State of the Union is not about him.

He brandishes guns as if every citizen should be like him. NO. Thank you. Texas created its own problem on all fronts including the environment. Now, because they destroyed their own safety and peace, their own green, lush pastures the entire country is suppose to follow in their steps.

Nugent is self-righteous and self-centered. He has no humility.

If he can't behave himself where he is invited then he needs to be removed from the room.

...Nugent (click here) will be the guest of another gun-rights advocate, Representative Steve Stockman, a Texas Republican who has proposed legislation to overturn Obama’s executive orders to tighten gun regulation. Stockman said he will seek the president’s impeachment if Congress doesn’t pass his bill....

Stockman needs to 'train' his guest about civility before he is under the dome of the nation's capital.

In case Stockman has no clue, it goes like this, "Come sober, sit, stay and behave. Be good boy."

I thank Representative Giffords and Captain Kelley for their remarkable patriotism. It means a great deal to me.

Barrasso won't vote for Senator Hagel for DOD. Why? Because he advises POTUS and he might not advise him the way I want him to advise him.

Export the petroleum industry from the USA and you export war. ie: Iraq

I am sure his balls are made of it.

Wyoming U.S. Sen. Barrasso backs LNG export bill (click here)

February 03, 2013 7:00 pm
By ADAM VOGE Star-Tribune energy reporter

U.S. Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming is backing a bill that would speed up the approval process needed to ship natural gas overseas.
Introduced Thursday by Barrasso and fellow Republican Sens. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and John Cornyn of Texas, the bill would fast-track exports of liquefied natural gas, or LNG, to North Atlantic Treaty Organization member nations and Japan.
Current law requires the secretary of energy to sign off on such exports to nations with which the U.S. has a free trade agreement, and open a comment period on such exports to countries without a free trade agreement....
All those men are war proponents.

...The bill would skip the public comment step for exports to NATO allies and Japan, and allow the energy secretary to skip the step for other countries if the secretaries of state and defense agree such a move would be in the national security interest of the U.S....

Let's skip the public interest in all this and if the CEOs say it is a go, then it is a go! Of course, in time of war, which these men would see happening all the time, the President could sign an executive order to facilitate shipments in an emergency. Otherwise, why by pass the public? Patriarchal dictatorship. Not democracy. No power within the people of the USA, simply the interests of the crony petroleum industry.

A Wyoming senator (click here) has reintroduced a bill that would double the length of grazing permits on millions of acres of public lands and instruct the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service to issue routine permits more quickly....

There are wildlife issues, environmental issues, but, the tax issues should hit home to most Americans, especially those that object to subsidies.

Taxpayer Issues
According to the National Public Lands Grazing Campaign, the livestock industry is subsidized by federal and state funding through “below-market grazing fees, emergency feed programs, low-interest federal farm loans, and many other taxpayer-funded programs.” Taxpayer dollars are also used to address the environmental problems caused by ranching and the health issues created by the consumption of beef....

Now, why aren't the problems of the American farmer corrected to stop the need for these subsidies. They have under performing grazing lands and the extension of grazing time for millions of animals on public lands will result in overgrazing of public lands. When that occurs where are the farmers going to graze their livestock then?

Already, today, it is known the public grazing lands are already under performing adding little to nothing to an animals body weight for market. So, the idea an extension of grazing rights will improve the circumstances of these farmers is grossly misguided.

NCBA President J.D. Alexander said that the bill simply makes sense, as it proposes to codify language that has been included in federal appropriations bills for over a decade. That appropriations language, which has long enjoyed bipartisan support, allows the BLM and USFS to renew grazing permits under existing terms and conditions while the backlog of environmental analyses is being addressed. 

I would think that statement from the NCBA (National Cattlemen's Beef Association) President is self explanatory.

Before grazing permits on public lands can be extended or even continue, the integrity of the grazing areas need to be assessed and vitality restored to these lands.

Challenged Children aren't about performance, they are about loving their ability.

My youngest son, from a very tender age, was found to be challenged. He had a older brother that was his best friend and vise versa. But, when brother came into his high school years and went to a private school he had talked about since he was 11 years old; my youngest was stranded. His behavior became estranged from what was conducive to normal and it was recommended we see a local psychologist. 

We did. At first he didn't want to go so the psychologist recommended I come anyway. It was a day when we were both home and he was home from school. I left the house and left him inside while I went to his appointment with the psychologist. I talked to the psychologist about my sons, but, primarily my youngest. 

The next week it was same scenario and I went to the psychologist's office alone. The third week I told my son it was time for his appointment and he gathered himself emotionally (a then seventh grader) and he got in the car. I thanked him for coming and told him I didn't like going by myself. When we got to the psychologist's office he thanked my son for coming and asked in my presence in the waiting room (we were the only ones there at that point) why he came? My son stated, "Well, I figured if you were going to talk about me I might as well know what you are saying."

It was recommended my youngest son see a psychiatrist to have medication assigned to him. He agreed to go. He felt important. Before we went to this very important appointment we shopped for trendy clothing and items he thought were important. His esteem was never better and he looked forward to his life. He was given a prescription and went home.

For three years, my youngest son and I visited the psychiatrist every three months for medication adjustment and we saw the psychologist weekly. Every week the two would talk about the week before and a strategy for the week coming. I was in the waiting room most of the time. They dodged all the terrible issues of being different with ease and became partners in a life strategy. That went on for three years. At the end of his freshman year in high school he graduated from his weekly visits.

When he became sixteen he decided he didn't want his medication anymore. i agreed to try and low and behold he had grown into a life strategy that worked for him. During those three years I never worried about him. He was a good boy, a good student and a great son. He is still the sweetheart today he was then and I have always had peace of mind.

The dangers of prescriptions are there for everyone. It doesn't matter if a person is diagnosed properly or not. The chemical brain balance is the issue. We know there are problems with suicide ideation with these medications. We know they can be addictive. My experience was successful, but, I had an experienced professional that understood quality of life meeting with my son every week. It was a magnificent experience and my son is fine. I do not believe handing out medication without proper supervision is the answer.

A child can't monitor their own lives. They have parents, albeit stressed, but if the parents need help to 'handle it' then get separate counseling. But, if a child is on medication for their education and behavior problems that needs to be met with a psychologist moral enough to call it as they see it.

I balanced the gender issue, too. My son's weekly visit was a man and the psychiatrist (who spent 40 minutes with him at every visit) was a woman. I thought it was a good balance and he is very functional today.

Tornado in Mississippi

Amazing. Oh, but, this is all normal, right? NOT. 

One of the public universities have sustained significant damage and there are at least 11 injured. It the warm air from the Intertropical Convergence Zone.

I hear the Pope is retiring.

Good for him. I hope he writes besides his prayerful vigilance and maybe he even plays golf.

Saving Medicaid and Medicare is not an option. Democrats need to fight for what is best for the country.

...In his announcement (click here), the conservative governor cautioned he still was “not a supporter of Obamacare,” (POLITICS) but stressed the role of the expansion in propping up the finances of hospitals that care for the uninsured as well as the importance of $1.4 billion in federal funds that would flow into the state as part of the deal. 

Those broad strokes led the Greater Cleveland Partnership, the region's chamber of commerce, to throw its support behind the expansion just a few days before the governor's announcement....

The National Prayer Breakfast

President Obama had it correct in calling out those that attend in name only.

While Dr. Carson had interesting things to say, he has detractors. His detractors are peers. The Catholic Church has openly defended the poor and their financial status as a point of morality. There has been a movement with a group of nuns, "Nuns on the Bus," about widespread poverty in the USA.

So, while Dr. Carson is welcome to talk about his point of view he has yet to answer his peers regarding the ability and change in the quality of life for the poor, low and middle income Americans to contribute to paying the national debt. Dr. Carson's position on tax 'contributions' of a flat tax, similar to the 10% of church things is misguided.

Morality in paying taxes has to be viewed as 'the ability' to contribute not only to the payment of the  national debt, but, the USA economy. When the upper crust is profiting off the needs of the Middle and Lower Classes and their spending, it time for them give back and facilitate the USA Treasury to pay its bills.

The USA has gone through a very difficult economic recovery and to believe hacking into incomes that don't even pay a living wage is hugely immoral. Dr.Carson on this point is wrong. Dedicated to his ideation of tithing, but, not correct on morality on this issue.

Dr. Benjamin Carson, (click here) director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, delivered a powerful 25-minute message at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

A world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon, Carson openly spoke about the many problems that our nation faces – healthcare, education, taxes, the national debt and moral decline. He started off by sharing the biblical wisdom that is found in the inspired word of God, as he read the following scriptures aloud: Proverbs 11:9, Proverbs 11:12, Proverbs 11:25 and 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Carson said that he encourages Americans to take hold of their rights to freedom of thought and freedom of expression without the fear of offending someone because of political correctness, which is "dangerous."...
