"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Are we actually expected to accept the mythically nonsensical, "matter-of-fact" assertion offered on Friday's (1/27/12) Diane Rheme Show, that the Obama Administration has made sincere overtures to the Iranian government? These "usual suspect" panelists (from both left and right) inform us that the "letters" we allegedly sent were directed to Iran's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei.
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.
When I was a lad of six years or so I passionately, desperately wanted a little red wagon just like the one my friends had. I prayed to God each night to bring me one. One day as I was trudging back from school, despondent as always about not having that wagon, I noticed a battered and rusty tin can alongside the road with what seemed to be a crumpled, greasy piece of paper tied around it. Curious as always, I picked it up and gingerly unfolded the smudged and filthy scrap of brown bag. To my surprise there was a note written on it. The note read:
Headline reads: Jury finds Afghan family guilty in honor killings
EXCERPT: The prosecution presented wire taps and mobile phone records from the Shafia family in court to support their honor killing allegation. The wiretaps, which capture Shafia spewing vitriol about his dead daughters, calling them treacherous and whores and invoking the devil to defecate on their graves, were a focal point of the trial.
Lobbyist thrive on complexity, defining terms and leaving “details” up to practice and implementation.
