The administration pledges to watch Iran closely and if it violates any provisions in a final agreement, sanctions would be re-imposed. If sanctions and other means, such as the introduction of the Stuxnet virus into Iran’s computers, failed to deter Iran’s nuclear program, why would anyone think additional threats and more sanctions would produce the desired results? Iran is playing for time and it appears the United States is willing to give it to them.
I’m not surprised that Obama tells untruths. He’s surely not the only politician to do so. I’m just surprised that he chooses to tell such obvious ones — ones that will inevitably be found out.
I have gotten used to change. People tell me that change is good. Some is. Some isn’t. I’m not a big fan of most change.
When you go out into the community and talk to folks you meet, you get the impression that they think our country is in a “mell-of-a-hess.”
We have some unusual rules and laws. Others do as well. Many are archaic and have been on the books for years. They haven’t been updated to make them relevant in modern society. They aren’t even enforced.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, at Wednesday’s Finance Committee hearing, was charged with addressing Steven from Topeka’s difficulty with the website (by Roberts). Democrats felt compelled to defend Obamacare with happy anecdotes.
If filmmakers, moviegoers, and students knew Newton’s rich history their focus may turn to profiles in courage, figures of fortitude and an occasional character of ignominy.
There used to be a publication called “Brown’s Guide to Georgia.” It was as much a travelogue as anything else and if a restaurant was lucky enough to get a favorable review in “Brown’s Guide,” they were fixin’ to be busy. It was up to them to maintain that business.
If individual members of the Greece, N.Y. town board, or any other legislative body, wish to pray silently to their God before their meetings, no law or court decision prohibits them from doing so. Why would God be more impressed and more likely to respond to a public prayer than to a private one?
This week, the Obamacare O-ring froze for all the world to see: Hundreds of thousands of cancelation letters went out to people who had been assured a dozen times by the president that “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan. Period.” The cancellations lay bare three pillars of Obamacare: (a) mendacity, (b) paternalism and (c) subterfuge.
To me, all this is consistent with the NSA’s apparent goal of knowing, basically, everything. The agency collects information as massively and indiscriminately as possible on the theory that if you assemble a database of all the world’s communications, the few you seek — those involving terrorists — will be in there somewhere.
Too great for small dreams. What an inspirational line. Reagan believed the strength of America was not in Washington, but in the people. If the people can catch that larger vision, he believed, they could fulfill their greater dreams.
Another target for economic growth is the energy sector. Because of the natural gas boom, the United States may soon be the largest producer of hydrocarbons in the world. Intelligent rulemaking can ensure that as the industry expands, parallel industries dedicated to safety, cleanup and alternative fuels grow with it.
Rather than sending people to Washington in the vain hope the capital can be run like a state, Mike Pence says Washington should look to states “where there is innovation in health care, education, balanced budgets and taxes” and follow their lead.
Let’s recognize that there are many people of good will for whom “Washington Redskins” contains sentimental and historical attachment — and not an ounce of intended animus.
