Doctor’s Want 12 Year Old Girls To Have Over-The-Counter Morning-After Pills

-
Roanoke Times, 11-27-2012, Pg 1, 12: Pediatric policy aims to reduce teen pregnancy.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says 17 year old girls can get Plan-B pills over-the-counter and there should be no age limit for these anti-pregnancy medications.
-
One is always amazed at these revelations given that a school registered nurse can’t give a Midol or a Tylenol or a cough drop to a teenage student without a doctor’s authorization!
-
How do you give this authority to a 12 year old girl (absent any medical or parental guidance or knowledge) without enabling and promoting non-safe-sex behavior?
-
Compared to the STD pandemics of HPV, herpes, gonorrhea, and HIV+AIDS it appears that an unwanted pregnancy may be the least of this child’s risks.
-
If this is the “Villages” best answer to raising and helping our children – God Help Us!

Ambassador Steven's Murder Investigation A Cartoon

-
It is difficult to comprehend how the liberal media can generate and publish cartoons about the murder of Ambassador John Christopher Stevens at the hands of Radical Muslim Terrorists.
-
What is funny and cartoonish about determining the facts about this major malfeasance?
-
1. Why wasn’t the Ambassadors request for security months before the attack provided?
-
2. Why wasn’t help sent to the compound during the 9 hours of the attack?
-
3. Why did Obama and his team lie about the attack and the lack of response?
-


Families want to know what happened in Benghazi
They are not amused by this gross cartoon that supports the cover-up

Obama Hands The Middle-East To The Muslim-Brotherhood

-
Roanoke Times, 11-23-2012, Pg 3: Hamas declares victory over Israel.
This after Obama appoints Egyptian President Morsi “in charge of the Middle-East Peace Process”: 1500 Rockets Fired Into Israel In 10 Days
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/11/1500-rockets-fired-into-israel-in-10.html
-
Pg 3: Egyptian President Morsi (a member of the Muslim-Brotherhood) grants himself far-reaching powers.
Including making him independent and superior to the Egyptian Courts.
-
Roanoke Times, 11-24-2012, Pg 3: Demonstrations erupt as President Morsi (the Main Muslim-Brotherhood Brother) expands power.
-
For being a non-Muslim, Obama sure has handed his Muslim Brothers control of the Middle-East not seen since the time of the Saracens and Charlemagne, 1200 years ago.
-
As one who cannot bring himself to say “Radical Muslim Terrorists” for any of the attacks upon Americans one can only guess where Obama and associates are driving this radical change in the world order. However, it certainly appears the “Hope” part is now history as Sharia Law is totally incompatible with Democracy as we know it and personal Freedom as we have enjoyed it.
-
Behind all this, and enjoying it immensely, are the Iranians. They will soon have nuclear weapons that can be delivered by planes, trucks and boats by a never ending supply of suicide-fanatics reminiscent of the Jap-Kamikazes. In a short time they will also be able to deliver their nukes on missiles with great range and accuracy.
-
And Obama tells us that we’re safer today then four years ago!
Talk about insulting the people’s intelligence!
Hold-on – perhaps it’s not an insult, or not intelligence – he just got reelected!
-
And through it all the major liberal media continues to sell Obama’s Snake Oil.
What a joy to behold this holiday season!

Libya-Benghazi Mess And Misdirection And Cover-up Go On

-
Roanoke Times, 11-19-2012, Pg 1, 12: Omission on Libya raises questions.
-
Omissions? No; that’s not THE story! The Story is the massive disinformation broadcasting leading up to the election by Obama and associates that the attack was just some street protesters that got carried away.
-
Changing the CIA document from “Al Qaida connected terrorists” to “extremists” is a part of the story that apparently has now resulted in “lying to Congress” charges being directed at high-level Obama appointees.
-
An interesting item is Obama’s statement that he sent Susan Rice, US Ambassador to the UN, to present mis-and-disinformation to the five major weekend talk shows because she didn’t know anything about the situation.  (Apparently he thought it was a good assignment for a dumb-girl!)
And all the girls in the liberal media and the NOW girls found this grossly condescending and marginalizing explanation to be perfectly OK!
-
Obama has thrown Hillary and Susan under the Benghazi bus – who’s next?
-
After all the administration and liberal media smoke and misdirection and lies about Benghazi and the Generals-sexcapades are all blown away, the key questions still must be answered:
-
1. Why wasn’t the Ambassadors request for security months before the attack provided?
-
2. Why wasn’t help sent to the compound during the 9 hours of the attack?
-
3. Why did Obama and his team lie about the attack and the lack of response?

1500 Rockets Fired Into Israel In 10 Days

1500 Rockets Fired Into Israel In 10 Days
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/palestinianauthority/9691487/Dispatch-Israelis-wary-of-Gaza-ceasefire-that-does-not-bring-peace.html
-
And the fair and balanced Roanoke Times coverage:
Roanoke Times, 11-19-2012, Most of Pg 3 and Huge Heading: Israel strike kills 11 in Gaza, including children.
Apparently the raining down by Hamas of 1500 rockets on Israel’s people and homes, reminiscent of the German V2 Rocket blitz of London, isn’t newsworthy!
-
Brazen faking of images reveals Hamas’ desperation

"There is only one thing worse than the image of a child killed by military conflict, and that is the image of a child killed by military conflict having deliberately been placed in the line of fire."
 http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/11/20/brazen-faking-images-reveals-hamas-desperation/#ixzz2CsyeQewR
-
The RT is nicely in lock-step with their associates at CNN whose view is:
Jews surrender! You’re surrounded!
“Israel, face new reality: Talk to Hamas”
http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/20/opinion/husain-hamas-israel/index.html?hpt=hp_c1
-
All this fits in with Obama’s Arab Spring turning into Winter:
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2011/12/obamas-arab-spring-turns-quickly-to.html
-
Obama has emboldened and empowered the Radical Muslims of the MidEast and now he tells Israel “he’s with them”.
Right – all they have to do is surrender to Hamas and the PLO and revert back to the 1967 boundaries.
-
“After all Obama’s Geri-flexing, Kowtowing and Bowing to the Muslim’s of the world, here he is today trying to convenience the Israelis that he really didn’t mean his proclamation that Israel should retreat back to the indefensible 1967 boundaries and that he has their back in ensuring that Iran doesn’t get nuclear weapons. An amazing statement given that Iran may already have nuclear weapons”.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/03/israel-not-to-worry-obamas-got-your.html
-
All the above isn’t the bad news.
The bad news is that the American Jewish community has supported and funded Obama and his DNC team as if they think they have a friend in the White House.
And to think I grew up being told that Jews were smarter than the average WASP.
Apparently not!

Audacity Of Arrogance: Benghazi Was About A Movie Or Maybe Just Workplace Violence

-
The Audacity Of Arrogance is Obama’s hostile and nasty defense of UN Ambassador Rice for her unforgivable and indefensible lies to the American people about the Radical Muslim Terrorist attack that killed our Libya-Benghazi Ambassador Stevens and three of his team.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/14/obama-challenges-republicans-hammering-rice-on-libya-to-go-after-me/
-
Obama’s fake and phony righteous indignation at being asked why he and his administration lied about the Benghazi attack in the weeks leading up to the election is conduct beneath the office of the president or any leader.
The American people have not been subjected to this obscene behavior since Clinton shook his finger in the face of the American people with his denial of adultery and sodomy and sexual-harassment with Monica.
Apparently birds of a feather do flock together!
-
If Petraeus Said It Was Al Qaeda, Then Who Changed His Memo?
Lawmakers said Petraeus testified that the CIA's draft talking points written in response to the assault on the diplomat post in Benghazi that killed four Americans referred to it as a terrorist attack. But Petraeus told the lawmakers that reference was removed from the final version, although he wasn't sure which federal agency took out the reference.
http://news.yahoo.com/petraeus-believed-terrorists-behind-libya-attack-145946656--politics.html
-
Apparently Obama views the attack on our Libyan Embassy as just another example of workplace violence, like the Fort Hood massacre, and not the work of yet other Radical Muslim Terrorists.
-
After all the administration smoke and misdirection and lies about Benghazi and the Generals sexcapades are blown away the key questions still must be answered:
-
1. Why wasn’t the Ambassadors request for security months before the attack provided?
-
2. Why wasn’t help sent to the compound during the 9 hours of the attack?
-
3. Why did Obama and his team lie about the attack and the lack of response?

Climate Change And Health

Roanoke Times, 11-13-2912, Pg 11: LTE: Climate change is a public health threat, by Dr. S. Ahdoot practicing  pediatrics in Alexandria VA., doing good work for our children.
http://www.roanoke.com/editorials/letters/wb/316629
-
It is fact that climate change impacts public health.  During the Medieval Warm Period there was good living in Europe where they were busy growing and eating lots of good stuff and building structures that clearly could not have been built by sick people.  Then the Little Ice Age arrived and a lot of people starved to death and froze to death (certainly a public health threat).  Circa 1750 to 1800 the Little Ice Age abated and we warmed up a little to our current situation.
It's not clear what temperature and climate Dr. Ahdoot would prescribe as "just right".  And it's also not clear that Mother Nature would cooperate with that prescription.
Rather like Goldilocks's and the Three Bears.
-
According to NASA’s records (graphs and links below)
There is somewhat less than 1 degree of warming since the end of the little ice age, circa 1750 – 1800 about 120 years ago.
Perhaps we should expect a little natural warming after such a big deep-freeze.
We "old folks" were somewhat concerned during period 1940 to 1975 that we were drifting back into another very cold period but mother nature was kind and our temperature has stabilized at a reasonable level.  It’s not clear when or if we will get back to the good old balmy days of the Medieval Warm Period.
-

-
There has been no significant global temperature change since 1998.

-
-
-
I am hopeful that Dr. Ahdoot, and others,  can take a little time to click-on and through some of the attached/embedded links to view the actual data associated with our global temperature and climate change experience and then hopefully take with a grain of salt and two aspirin some of the Gore and Associates draconian statements and hypothesis.

Obama’s Financial Plan For US

-
Roanoke Times, 11-14-2012, Pg 5: $120 Billon deficit begins budget year.
-
What “budget” year? Obama and Reid haven’t enacted a budget in four years!
“The nation is on a path to its fifth straight $1 TRILLION-Plus annual deficit”.
Not to worry – we’ll just borrow the money or print the money and keep spending!
-
October 2011 compared to October 2012:
Tax revenue increased 13% to $184 Billion
But: Spending rose 16% to $304 Billion
That’s an “over budget” red ink of $120 Billion after 4 years of Obama-Recovery
Anyone see a problem here?
Why isn’t this front page, big print, news?
-
Obama’s answer to fiscal responsibility:
Obama’s position is that he won his reelection on the basis of keep spending and drastically raising taxes.
“Obama enters 'fiscal cliff' talks calling for $1.6T in tax hikes”
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/14/obama-enters-fiscal-cliff-talks-calling-for-16t-in-tax-hikes/#ixzz2CCzB0Jcd
-
Obama and associates are not interested in balanced budgets or debt stabilization and reductions. They have demonstrated that they can buy all the votes they need with taxpayer funded handouts and promises of more of the same!
-
They also need lots of new tax money to spend because they will also be using taxpayer funds to bail-out the public employees union retirement funds that are massively underfunded and the indebtedness of the big-blue states like California that are bankrupt.
-
It appears Obama and associates will be successful because they will be long gone from office before they run out of “other people’s money”; and others will be left to cope with the adverse consequences.

Veterans Day At The D-day Memorial Nov 12, 2012

-

-
-

-
-
In Addition to the five High School ROTC Corps of Cadets that were major participants in this event,
The teachers and students from the Timberlake Christian School also played a major role.
Each 4th grade student had written a letter to a Veteran and at this event each student personally handed their letter to a veteran who was there at the Memorial.  Following is a letter from Grace N.  What a touching and thoughtful message and a very meaningful activity for a child.
-
It is comforting to know that there are still classrooms in this County in which the word and message of God are embraced and articulated without fear of retribution from the ACLU and their associates in the media and our government.

NY Victims Of Sandy Now Victims Of Dirtbags

-
Roanoke Times, 11-7-2012, Pg 7: Fear of looting grips NYC. Many people chose to remain at home – and have vowed to protect their property. “I still have some valuables. I just can’t leave it. I just don’t want to lose my stuff to some dirtbag”
-
Sounds a lot like Katrina doesn’t it? Sounds a lot like “You’re doing a good job Brownie”!
The reality of this awful storm is setting in and clearly the victims and FEMA and local governments and utility companies and relief organizations are being stretched and challenged.
-
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/11/10/frustrated-long-island-residents-enter-day-12-no-power/
-
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/11/its-not-about-fema-its-all-about-local.html
-
The focus of this story: protecting your home from “dirtbag home invaders” is a reminder that NYC Mayor Bloomberg and associates have a major objective to disarm all NYC residents. This NYC jihad against personal self-defense goes back to the persecution of the Bernie Goetz case.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernhard_Goetz
-
Clearly NY State doesn’t have a “stand your ground law even if it’s in your home”; and the major liberal media has conducted a major attack upon those laws.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2005/05/license-to-kill.html
-
I had a NY State concealed carry permit for 50 years. It was good all over the state except for NYC. Talk about an oxymoron law; isn’t that where a law-abiding citizen would need it most?
-
These storm victims who are trying to defend their homes and property and family will be in jail with Florida’s George Zimmerman if they actually shoot an intruder in NYC; and Obama will be quick to point out that if he had a son, he would look just like the intruder; and to add insult to injury the intruder and his family will windup owning the property after they sue the homeowner for everything he owns and will ever earn.
Our laws are great; especially for criminals!

Obama’s Libyan Benghazi Embassy Mess Now Worse Than Watergate

-
The big difference:  Nobody died at or in the Watergate!
A very interesting aspect of Nixon’s Watergate was that it happened at the end of his first term and caused his demise in his second term.
-
Fast forward to Obama’s Libyan Benghazi Embassy debacle with its latest revelation that Obama’s FBI had been shadowing the CIA Director Gen. Petraeus and determined he was having an affair. Didn’t the Liberals accuse J. Edgar Hoover of doing bad things like this for purposes of blackmail and intimidation?  Conservatives accused JFK and his brother AG Robert of doing the same dirty tricks!
-
After the illicit affair was established by the FBI, Gen. Petraeus publicly reinforced the Obama/Clinton fairytale that the Libyan Embassy attack and the murder of our Ambassador and three of his associates was caused by a video-movie about Mohamed and was not the result of Radical Muslim Terrorists.
-
The real story of the lead-up to the attack, the conduct of US responses during the 9 hours of the attack and then the lies and alibis about the Obama Administration’s actions and inaction's were suppressed and stone-walled from the American people leading up to the election aided and abetted by Gen. Petraeus' public statements.
-
Then 5 days before Gen. Petraeus was to testify about this malfeasance before Senate and Congressional Committees, the General abruptly resigned from office and the story is that he now will not testify.
-
And we’re all supposed to believe that all this is OK and there’s really nothing to this story and that there was no malfeasance or cover-up!
-
Move along folks, nothing to see here!
-

It’s Not Just Four More Years, It's Much Bigger Than That

-
As with any win-loose contest, those who chose the loosing team are now left with disappointment and uncertainty.
At the expense of sounding like Aesop's “sour grapes”, the losers will now have ample opportunity to expound on the reasons for their failure and for the other team’s success.
-
For today, the day after, it should be sufficient to simply acknowledge reality and bask in the wonder of the American System in which we the people are empowered to make these choices of our own free will. What an amazing system! What an amazing place!
-
Regardless of whom our leaders are, one thing is for certain, we are all in this together!
-
It’s clear that our national priorities are now very different than in the past and we have embarked on a new course. These new directions will result in a county looking more like Western European countries than we have in the past. Perhaps this is the result of the personification of the maturing of a society as it goes through its life cycles.
-
What is also clear is that the torch has been passed to a new generation whose views and values are very different from those who were part of, or who came from, “the greatest generation”.
The changes in: focus on religion, traditional family life, work ethic, service to country and personal responsibility has been replaced by a new and different culture. JFK’s challenge: “ask not what your Country can do for you, ask what you can do for your Country” was not mentioned in this election cycle. Only time and experience will determine if these changes are positive progress.
-
Hopefully our Country will continue to be blessed with the concepts espoused in the words of “America The Beautiful”.
http://www.scoutsongs.com/lyrics/americathebeautiful.html
-
-
Following is a very interesting response to this blog item from a very thoughtful man:
-
The sun did rise this morning!!! Nice job on this, much better than the way I am feeling. Thanks for sharing your perspective/thoughts and maybe it will help me modify my "morning after thinking" a little. I think your point about recognizing the change in leadership and values away from the thinking of our generation is very true. Our country is very different today than when we were the young, energetic leaders providing much of direction. The new generations want more from their government and seem to be willing to pay for it. It will be interesting to see how the constraints that come when government gets more involved, play out with the younger generation.

Alleged War On Coal

-
Roanoke Times, 11-5-2012, Pg 1: Breaking down the vote in Western VA precincts, by Dwayne Yancey, certified by Dan Casey to be “the greatest mind he has ever met”.
-
Talk about a limited exposure to our country’s intellectual assets!
-
The Coalfield section of this article:
“Romney has put a lot of emphasis time on the president’s alleged “war on coal”.
-
The “alleged war on coal" was declared by candidate Obama in January 2008:
Speaking in San Francisco, candidate Obama said:
"If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, it's just that it will bankrupt them."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGICRfYYX3s
If that isn’t a declaration of “war on coal”, what would Mr. Yancey need for affirmation?
-
Obama then launched the “war on coal” through Lisa Jackson and their unconstitutional expansion of EPA regulations against coal mining, coal burning, oil drilling, the Keystone oil pipeline and even fracking for natural gas:
http://www.realclearenergy.org/2011/12/21/epa039s_unconstitutional_war_on_fracking_243754.html
-
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2011/07/more-global-warming-alarmist-and.html
-
The strongest words of anger against this (Obama-Jackson-EPA) regulatory destruction of the coal industry came not from an industry voice but from organized labor. Cecil Roberts, the president of the United Mine Workers, said: “The Navy SEALs shot Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan and Lisa Jackson shot us in Washington. This rule is an all-out, in my opinion, decision by the EPA that we’re never going to have another coal-fired facility in the United States that’s constructed.”
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/09/19/to-stop-war-on-american-jobs-must-end-obama-war-on-coal/#ixzz2BMFUxHtz

So much for Mr. Yancey’s “alleged” war on coal!

Vote For Love Of Country; Not Revenge

Roanoke Times, 11-4-2012, Pg 1: Whoever wins, US remains deeply divided
-
And who is it that has played the race-card and class-warfare for the past 4 years and ridiculed Republicans and Conservatives and Businesspeople?
-
And now on the campaign trail In Springfield Ohio Obama urges voters to take 'revenge' on Election Day,
http://politics.blogs.foxnews.com/2012/11/02/obama-urges-voters-take-revenge-election-day-romney-team-rips-terrible-message/#ixzz2B9nvi6Kq
-
What a desperate and despicable message from any public officer holder!
Has any President of the US ever stooped so low in vicious personal attacks?
This is the message of hope and change and forward? This is the Obama policy of uniting our Country?
How sad and pathetic that Obama’s legacy has come down to this!

Obama’s Economic Recovery That Wasn’t

-
Roanoke Times, 11-3-2012, Pg 7: Despite more jobs, unemployment rises slightly.
"The economy is in a lot better shape than most people believe"
-
Really?  Where was this unbridled economic enthusiasm during the 2008 election cycle?
-
October 2012 data:
171,000 new jobs
170,000 jobs lost
Net = +1,000 jobs for October for the entire country after 4 years of Obama’s economic mismanagement and misdirection!
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/02/unemployment-rate-rises-to-7-percent-economy-add-171000-jobs/#ixzz2B9meafNA
-
Unemployment back up to 7.9% (above where Obama started)
12.3 million Unemployed
14.7 million on food stamps
Black unemployment at 14%
Youth unemployment at 16%
2 million women have lost jobs
$16 TRILLION in debt
And Obama jubilantly tells crowds that his plan is working!

In Springfield Ohio Obama urges voters to take 'revenge' on Election Day,
Romney team rips 'terrible' message!
http://politics.blogs.foxnews.com/2012/11/02/obama-urges-voters-take-revenge-election-day-romney-team-rips-terrible-message/#ixzz2B9nvi6Kq
Has any President of the US ever stooped so low in vicious personal attacks?
This is the message of hope and change and forward? This is the Obama policy of uniting our Country?
How sad and pathetic that Obama’s legacy has come down to this!

It’s Not About FEMA; It’s All About The Local Governments

The damage and devastation and personal impacts from Hurricane Sandy are beyond normal understanding.
-
The initial impression is that FEMA is doing OK – however – FEMA’s involvement at the start of a disaster is very limited.
FEMA’s mission is to support the State and Local Governments in the event of a major incident.
FEMA’s mission is NOT to take-over, take-control or be the leader of the disaster recovery mission.
So why is FEMA looking initially better now than back with Katrina?
Let’s just compare the “who’s in charge”:
-
THE STUCK ON STUPID KATRINA TEAM:
Governor Louisiana Blanco
Mayor New Orleans Nagin
-
THE TAKE CHARGE AND PROVIDE LEADERSHIP SANDY TEAM
Governor New Jersey Christie
Mayor New York City Bloomberg
-
An interesting difference in local government politics was hosting an Obama visit to the storm devastated areas:
NJ Gov. Christie welcomes Obama to NJ:

-
Mayor Bloomberg to President Obama: We’re busy; Don't Come to the Big Apple
http://www.thecuttingedgenews.com/index.php?article=76979
-
The sad reality will soon set-in that this will be a very long term disaster for many individuals and small businesses and local governments!
The seven steps of grief will be a difficult process for many who have lost so much, and unfortunately the unpleasant reactions of those who were primarily “inconvenienced” will not help the situation for either those who lost so much or those who are trying to assist.
-
Yet again a major item of contention will be the role of government, especially relative to those who choose to build and live in a high-risk location. Should taxpayers subsidize those who undertake these risks of for instance building on the barrier-islands and at sea-level?

Reflections on Katrina: Still Stuck on Stupid in New Orleans
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2007/02/still-stuck-on-stupid.html
-
Sept 2005: Hurricane Rita: Let me get this straight, it’s the same George Bush, it’s the same FEMA but there’s a different Governor and different Mayors for the impacted cities than were involved with Hurricane Katrina.
For those who didn’t evacuate, the results are very similar. A horrible experience and rescue a few at a time with helicopters and small boats after the storm and wind and rain have subsided.
