I don’t watch FoxNews. I can’t bear to watch FoxNews. I only see it in doses, clips on the true news…and Comedy Central where they also tell the truth. I was searching for “Karl Rove” there and found this video which documents use of a tactic I was introduced to in Sociology 101 in the 1960s. After you recover from watching it, email the video link to your family and friends.
Have you noticed that even the President now says, “Obamacare?” We have heard the right use this term so often that we have taken it into our lexicon. Thank you, FoxNews!
IT IS VERY SIMPLE: WOMEN VOTERS OUTNUMBER MALE VOTERS
NO MATTER YOUR STATION IN LIFE
YOU CAN’T DENY MATHEMATICS…EVEN AT THE BALLOT BOX!
THE VOTE IS A PRECIOUS RIGHT
Along with the “Pomp and Circumstance” of being the President of the United States, Barack Obama has special powers and executive powers and military powers as Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces. We have been given three branches of government which check each other in getting the people’s business done and in defending The Constitution. [Of course the three branches are the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches.] The 112th Congress will prove interesting. However, it could be continued obstruction and delay or with the power divided in Congress, the watchword could be COMPROMISE… (or as one prominent congressman prefers, “reaching common ground.” 🙂 The quick pace of legislating we witnessed in the lame duck session could be sustained and the stench of dysfunction could be purified with courageous action on bills in both houses of Congress. Have you prayed for this Congress and it’s leaders? Have you contacted your elected officials and voiced your opinions. CHECK THIS SITE. Where do you stand in the battle between FoxNews and MSNBC in covering the news from day-to-day? Do you use Twitter and Facebook to keep involved in the political process? I have not read “The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire,” but, I’ll bet somewhere in there is apathy! If we leave it to others to get it done, we should not whine and whimper about how President Obama or Congress is doing “nothing” (gridlock) and the Washington lobbyists have more sway over politicians than the very people who stood in line and voted them into office. Let’s all make America the exceptional nation it once was. It is our destiny! God bless the United States of America!
Polling stations in Russia’s far east have opened as the presidential election gets underway.
Sunday’s vote sees Vladimir Putin hoping to become president again after four years as prime minister.
Mr Putin was Russia’s president from 2000-2008, but was barred by the constitution from standing for a third consecutive term.
He faces four challengers, three of whom he has defeated in previous elections.
The election is being held against a backdrop of popular discontent, sparked by allegations of fraud during December’s parliamentary elections.
Polls will be open from 8am to 8pm in each time zone, with the first opening in the Far East of the country at 20:00 GMT on Saturday, and the last in the western Kaliningrad region closing at 17:00 GMT on Sunday.
The Interior Ministry is bringing 6,000 police reinforcements to Moscow from the regions, according to Russian media reports. [BBC News] MORE
