ObamaCare Looks Like The Spanish Hi-Speed Train Wreck
Roanoke Times, 7-31-2013, Pg
16: Delayed part of health law is costly.
The sudden decision to delay fines for larger employers will cost the
government $10 BILLION.
No that’s not it! It will cost the TAXPAYERS $10 BILLION plus
all the fraud and abuse because individuals will be getting big “subsidies”

Obama’s redistribution of wealth programs, super-regulation
programs, energy infrastructure-regression programs and his obscene
anti-business “You Didn’t Build That” mentality are at the root cause for the
most dismal economic recovery since 1930.
Obama’s primary economic (and stock market) engine is to
print $85 BILLION of junk-money each month, adding to the $16+ TRILLION debt that "someone" is going to have to pay-down when he's "out of there".

Obama, Ho Chi Minh and Thomas Jefferson?
What American, no less a president, would equate a murderous
dictator and perpetrator of mass executions of non-combatant dissenters and
adversaries with our Thomas Jefferson?
The person who did
that at a public meeting in Viet
Nam was Barack Obama!
It is impossible to fathom where Obama really comes from,
where he is and where he is going. Apparently the hatred and venom his father
had for Western Countries was inherited and/or transmitted to the son.
How disturbing that one who harbors these
views has become the leader of our country.
With Obama’s penchant to employ the techniques of “1984” and
his distain for the checks and balances of our form of government and our
Constitution, one may well wonder what the next four years may harbor.
The mitigating factors now are: the polls indicate “the
people” have finally seen through the manufactured veneer of a charlatan and
our House of Representatives is acting as our check-and-balance against
unbridled executive power .
God Bless and Protect The United States of America and give
us safe passage through the next four years.

I thought! The RT Editors picked up on
McAuliffe’s gross misstatement of a report on allegations that Cuccinelli
violated conflict-of-interest laws and the RT Editors were “defending”
Cuccinelli. Not so fast! Next item says “The Democrat misrepresents a prosecutor’s
report on Cuccinelli and clouds a legitimate campaign issue.”
other words, “we’re” not chagrined that McAuliffe “misstated” the facts. We’re upset because he did it “badly”. He should have called the RT and “we” would
have helped him with his debating and language skills.
reflection, during the last Presidential debate, a significant liberal
journalist was the moderator and jumped into a debate item (the Benghazi

clearly not only a “Whopper” but a gross lie and cover-up.

Detroit’s Economic Cancer: It’s Time To Call Hospice
Roanoke Times, 7-22-2013, Pg
8: Auto troubles, "race" at root of collapse
The liberal media apparently
is looking for every possible way to keep the Obama-Holder-Sharpton racial
drums beating. Obama says he could have
been Treyvon IF he had waited in a dark alley and then jumped upon a “White-Hispanic”
man, pummeled him to the ground, slammed his head on the concrete and just
before the “White-Hispanic” fell unconscious – he pulled out his legal-gun and fired “in
self-defense”! All this because of
racism and that darn stand-you-ground law; neither of which had anything to do with Zimmerman!
This article claims that a
primary root of the collapse of Detroit
is also racism. Apparently not 50 years of Democrat-government and Union malfeasance in running down both the city and the
auto industries. The real root cause was
massive government and union give a-ways of money and benefits that robbed
future generations of jobs and opportunities.
This is by definition what
Democrat Politicians and Unions do!
This same pattern is happening
to our Country with $16+ TRILLION of debt and huge unemployment and the stifling of economic
growth and a major increasing tax burden on a shrinking base of our population. Something about “The Golden Goose”!

It's time for 'Journalists' to Discover Journalism
Reproduced here in its
entirety without comment:
Washington Examiner Opinion: Op-Eds
It's time for 'journalists'
to discover journalism
By Douglas MacKinnon | JULY
13, 2013 AT 9:20 PM
“Will the last honest, ethical, and completely
professional journalist please turn out the lights? The pretense of an
objective mainstream media is long over.
I was recently speaking with
two editors from top-10 newspapers who by their own admission see the world
from different ends of the political spectrum and yet both were bemoaning the
state of their profession.
One — a bit right-of-center
— complained how more and more reporters and editors are putting their ideology
before their duties as journalists and skewing stories and "news"
accounts to reflect or enhance that ideology.
The other — a bit
left-of-center — mentioned how completely unfair it was that conservatives are
purposely shut out of consideration for Pulitzer and Nobel prizes while
admitting his paper refuses to report on that unassailable reality because of
its own bias.
I have often said that human
nature dictates that people love to embrace the truth right up until the moment
it reflects poorly upon themselves or their cause. When journalists and editors
deliberately ignore — or even work to discredit — the truth, then all of us pay
a price no matter which party, cause, or issue we support.
It seems almost everything
now in mainstream journalism and the media is viewed through an ideological
prism. More often than not, a prism only admitting and spreading a liberal
What happened to journalists
and editors simply doing their jobs and following only the facts to their
natural conclusions? What happened to talking to both sides in a contentious or
highly controversial issue and then doing some actual investigating to see
which — if any — side was closer to the truth?
What happened to the
hard-boiled city editors as played by Clark Gable in the movie "Teacher's
Pet" who believed the only job of a journalist was to find out
"who, what, when, where, and why," and leave all personal feelings
and bias out of the reporting?
The betrayal of journalistic
ethics is sadly on display every day. If it wasn't so serious and potentially
damaging to our nation and our future, it would be laughable in its extreme.
Every single day we can
read, watch, or listen to "journalists" saying: "Some on the
right are claiming that Obamacare is falling apart, will have a negative impact
on medical care, and will bankrupt our nation; some on the right are claiming
that public-employee pensions are unsustainable and are outright destroying the
budgets and services offered by various cities, counties and states and are
most adversely hurting the poor; some on the right are claiming that the
negative effects of global warming have been grossly exaggerated and that the
'greening' of our nation is a detriment to our citizens; some on the right are
claiming that well over ninety percent of our college and university professors
lean left-of-center and advocate discrimination against conservative or
faith-based professors while indoctrinating students with only their approved
I have an idea. Instead of
these journalists "claiming some on the right" are making these
charges, why don't they actually get out of the liberal echo chamber and simply
do some investigative reporting and then write on where those facts — and only
the facts — take them?
Surely there must be some ethical and professional
journalists and editors out there still willing to squash bias and report on the
"who, what, when, where, and why," no matter where it leads them.”

former White House and Pentagon official and author of the memoir "Rolling
Pennies In The Dark" (Simon & Schuster, 2012).

Zimmerman: NOT GUILTY OF ALL CHARGES!
Roanoke Times 7-14-2013
“My Son Would Have Looked Like Trayvon Martin!”
With those words Obama
launched a Racist-Legal-Jihad against George Zimmerman and anyone who got in
the way of this Racial “Lynch Mob”.

resulted in almost all their witnesses supporting the defense!
There was no compelling case
against Zimmerman! Ever!
This was simple self-defense
pure and simple!

Jihad was purely a Racist effort to fan the flames that they have shown to be so
good at promoting.

Heavy Flooding In Roanoke -- So Much For $65 Million Flood Control
than 5 inches of rain and no hurricane in sight the $65 Million Roanoke Flood
Control System looked like this for July
4th 2013 Holiday:
blog items dating from 2005 are sadly consistent in describing this $65 Million
debacle that put River Bank Beautification, Bicycle Paths, Log Perch and Snail
Darters far above meaningful Flood Control.
Roanoke City Flood-Control Flooding From 5
Inches Of Rain
Taxpayers paid over $65 MILLION dollars on River Bank Beautification!
There was no flood-control because we have log-perch and snail-darters. They
are far more important than dredging down the river bottom and building
containment walls to contain future floods.
What we did was waste $65,000,000 of tax-money on curb-side appeal.
When the next real rainfall comes, like it did in 1985:
Even the most naïve folks will understand this major malfeasance and
misrepresentation of what was and was not done to contain real flooding
conditions caused by hurricanes that come inland and then stall against the
mountains and dump from one to two feet of rain in a very short time.

“The celebration of the
Declaration of Independence Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and
June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's most
cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's
most enduring monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and
hearts of the American people. The political philosophy of the Declaration was
not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke
and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson
did was to summarize this philosophy in "self-evident truths" and set
forth a list of grievances against the King in order to justify before the
world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country.”

UnitedHealthcare to leave individual insurance market
“If you like your health
care plan, you can keep it. No one is going to take that away from you.” If you
had a nickel for every time Barack Obama made that promise during his campaign
to get his health care law passed, you’d have enough to buy coverage in California. And you’ll
need it if your current carrier is United Healthcare.
The nation's largest health
insurer, UnitedHealth Group Inc., is leaving California's individual health insurance
market, the second major company to exit in advance of major changes under the
Affordable Care Act.

McAuliffe Campaign Media News Release!
Courtesy of the Roanoke Times!
“An Email by Mann that referred to a “statistical trick” in
his research was among documents stolen from a British university in 2009. Global warming skeptics have used some of the
documents to argue that climate change research has been manipulated. Multiple inquiries have produced no findings
that Mann manipulated data.”
Of course there has been no evidence! There has been an FOIA stonewall preventing
the public, who paid for this “research” from seeing anything! Just like there was no “evidence” the Nixon
Whitehouse was involved in the WaterGate break-in either!
