Both "pathetic and dangerous":

Both "pathetic and dangerous": "Whereas other American presidents have undertaken the burden of leadership to advance the American national interest in a multilateral coalition, Obama subordinates America's role in a multilateral coalition to serve the general will of the international community. He is at once pathetic and dangerous." http://bit.ly/fOpilr

Expediency marches on:

Expediency marches on: "The cost to be paid for giving in to expediency, however, is never reckoned until it is too late. America becomes a tool of global interests, and ECUSA becomes a tool of the Zeitgeist, the contemporary culture. Notice that the former, in doing so, loses all meaning as a republic. And the latter, in doing so, loses all meaning as a church." http://bit.ly/elzTmT

Go Trump! Go!

Go Trump! Go! '"I think this guy should be investigated," Trump said. "I doubt it. He remembers when Obama was born? Give me a break! He's just trying to do something for his party."' http://politi.co/ff7smm

Bring back cultural assertiveness:

Bring back cultural assertiveness: "But there’s not a lot to be said for forswearing imperialism and even modest cultural assertiveness, and still spending ten years getting shot up in Afghanistan helping to create, bankroll, and protect a so-called justice system that puts a man on death row for converting to Christianity." http://bit.ly/erhmLr

Getting to the root of the problem:

Getting to the root of the problem: '"Men may be jerks," my husband likes to occasionally declare, "but women are insane." I hate to admit it, but he's right-and anyone who has spent two years living in a sorority house filled with alpha girls (I'm raising my hand) can attest that this is true.' http://bit.ly/hPYVGm

Stranger than fiction:

Stranger than fiction: "Brown, who reigned as the 2009 Miss Tierra Verde, snatched her [pink .38 pistol] from a nearby bedroom and shot the suspect several times – hitting him in the chest, groin, thigh and back, her fiance said. [The suspect]  was pronounced dead at the scene." http://fxn.ws/fnMVUA

Method to his madness:

Method to his madness: "Obama looks to the UN as a vehicle for tethering the US superpower. He views US allies in the Middle East and around the world with suspicion because he feels that as US allies, they are complicit with US imperialism." http://bit.ly/gCrHWE

"Pennsylvania's budget battle"

Does my brother sport a Republican red keystone lapel pin like the governor? Looks neat. "Pennsylvania's budget battle may just be beginning | Philadelphia Inquirer | 03/13/2011" http://bit.ly/dGMD75
"Corbett proposed eliminating $625 million, or 52 percent of state aid, for the 18 state-supported schools" ibid.
"a stunned Pennsylvania State University president Graham Spanier laid out a bleak scenario, saying that if the budget were adopted as proposed, students could expect a tuition increase, faculty and staff layoffs, and program cutbacks." ibid.
I firmly believe that Penn State football should not be cut. The program is undoubtedly a money-maker and can be economically  justified.
It is not necessary to upset ourselves by considering the distress caused to anyone near and dear to us by such a cut.

O's "abuse of trust"

Interesting. O's egregious and multi-faceted "abuse of trust", etc, has been obvious for two years.

A Daniel's judgement ignored:

A Daniel's judgement ignored: "Petitioner Albert Snyder is not a public figure. He is simply a parent whose son, Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder, was killed in Iraq. Mr. Snyder wanted what is surely the right of any parent who experiences such an incalculable loss: to bury his son in peace. But respondents, members of the Westboro Baptist Church, deprived him of that elementary right. [...] The Court now holds that the First Amendment protected respondents’ right to brutalize Mr. Snyder. I cannot agree." http://bit.ly/gZo3fB
Good to have one Justice on the Court who is sufficiently knowledgeable, honest, and intelligent to use common sense.
