    Texans like to talk all the time about how big Texas is, and how if you´re driving from the bottom of Texas to Canada, then you´re spending half of your time just getting through the state itself. So is that true? It´s pretty close. Texas really is gigantic. Redditor Armeleon put together a map that gives you a good idea of the massive size of Texas. Texas spans about 800 miles from north to south. Everything seen in red on the map is closer than 791 miles to Texas (the longest straight-line distance in Texas from north to south is

The Globe reported that the firefighters formed a convoy and rushed the ring to Walsh's wake at a nearby church. The widow was seated a few feet from her husband's casket when she was handed the ring. The Boston Globe reported, "Kristen Walsh took the ring and slid it on her finger. It was big, real big, but it fit in all the ways that matter."

    We are told that Obama’s “promise zones” do not violate our Constitution. But no evidence is offered to substantiate that claim. So, let us look at some historical facts which indicate there is a long standing rule which applies to federal spending and it establishes Obama’s “promise zones” are absolutely contrary to the legislative intent and letter of our Constitution. Under Obama’s “promise zones” a number of cities would receive “comprehensive federal assistance” and receive preferential treatment to deal with the financial effects cause by the recession ___ a recession which has cause economic pain in each of the various...

The five zones will be located in San Antonio, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Southeastern Kentucky and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The administration aims to ultimately assist 20 such regions.” Once again our President, instead of adopting national policies removing the iron fist of our federal government from America’s free enterprise system and its businesses...

    Senator Kay Hagen (D., NC) who is up for reelection in 2014 was asked repeatedly about what she knew and when she knew it regarding Obamacare. When asked, “At some point did you know that you couldn’t necessarily keep you policy and still make that claim.” Sen. Hagen dodged this question and any others like it, blaming millions of Americans losing their health insurance on the insurers and not Obamacare. This answer does not sit well with many North Carolinian’s who believe, “basically by implication shouldn’t Senator Hagen somebody who signed the bill herself into law know as well?”

    **SNIP** Landrieu’s bill will allow policyholders to keep their policies for as long as they keep up with payments. The bill would also force insurance companies to disclose how the customer’s current plan is out of compliance with the ACA’s requirements. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and other red-state Democrats, represents a concession of sorts. Hagan faces re-election in 2014 and is currently the target of a television ad campaign blaming her for her support of the ACA. “Obviously it’s not going the way it should and I’m disappointed and I’m frustrated and it’s totally unacceptable because...

    Obama is so honest that even when he lies… it’s only to be honest. Sure Obama lied to Americans… but it was for their own good. He was only lying to Americans in order to keep his promise to them. Dan (Pfeiffer’s crazy spin) on Obama’s now infamous “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” lie may be more addled than Orwellian. It goes through more contortions than a gymnast falling out of a plane. Plugging in the now familiar claim that the cancelled plans were somehow “substandard”, Dan Pfeiffer tries to argue that Obama had to...

    The president said Wednesday that the notices sent to consumers suggest that they're losing their coverage "somehow because of the Affordable Care Act." He argued, however, that consumers only lost coverage if insurers altered those policies at all after the law took effect. In that case, Mr. Obama said, insurers had to "replace them with quality, comprehensive coverage." "Today that promise means that every plan in the marketplace covers a core set of minimum requirements," he said. Insurers "can't use allergies or pregnancy... or the fact that you're a woman to charge you more." He advised the public, "If you're...

    Today, Barack Obama took to the podium and confirmed that the terrifying cuts - cuts which every American should fear as if they were a gun pointed to their heads - will become law. Negotiations have failed, there will be no deal, and the United States will suffer the consequences. He did not mention the fact that the sequester was his idea, nor did he mention his refusal to sign any replacement legislation. Blame was placed squarely upon the Republican members of Congress, and their constant desire to protect the evil, greedy, rich.

    Can the President possibly believe that the Grand Bargain he proposed less than two years ago is somehow a raw deal? He is acting as if that's the case. Progressives are once again claiming the problem in deficit negotiations is intransigent Republicans. But looking back at the outlines of the deal the President himself proposed, it's Democrats who are not negotiating in good faith. This is true in at least two important ways. First, the President is not abiding by the balanced approach of spending cuts to taxes he identified. In April 2011 the President published his Framework for Shared...

It doesn’t necessarily have to be a solution for the nation’s problems. But it does have to immediately resonate with voters. In 1980, the quip that stood out was challenger Ronald Reagan’s dismissive, “There you go again...” to President Carter.

Obama campaigned on closing the facility in Cuba and, in one of his first actions as president, issued an executive order calling for it to be dismantled within one year. But as he enters the final year of his first term, human-rights groups are dismayed that the end of Guantánamo is nowhere in sight. While he remains committed to closing...

    CARSON CITY — Gov. Brian Sandoval will include taxes set to expire next month in a revised budget he will unveil Friday, according to a source. The move, which would run counter to his pledge not to raise taxes, comes thanks to a Supreme Court ruling today that prohibits the Legislature from taking local tax dollars to fund the state. In a statement this afternoon, Sandoval said he would present a revised spending plan on Friday that takes into account the lost funds. "The ruling raises questions about certain assumptions in the proposed executive budget," the statement said. "As governor,...

It was unclear if that would satisfy the hundreds of thousands of protesters who gathered across Egypt to call on Mubarak to immediately relinquish power. After days of putting pressure on Mubarak while seeking to avoid unleashing instability in the longtime U.S. ally and most populous Arab nation, Obama sent an envoy to privately urge the Egyptian president to prepare for a transition in power. Hours later, Mubarak said in...

Later he repeated the promise, “because you have obeyed my voice” (Gen. 22:18). What of this promise? Was it fulfilled? Or is it yet to be realized in some material sense? Gross confusion prevails. The tragic result is that Christians look for a fulfillment which will not come, because they look for the wrong kind of promise. People keep getting this original promise to Abraham mixed...

Any positive job growth is good news to be sure. But in order for Obama to meet his pledge of 4 million jobs created by the end of 2010, the U.S. economy would have to add 932,000 jobs each and every month between now and the end of the year, taking into account both temporary jobs and the number of new positions needed to keep even with population growth.

    In the three decades since the death penalty was reinstated, 86 condemned inmates have died in California. Thirteen were executions. Death-row prisoners are far more likely to succumb to natural causes. That’s what claimed 50 of them. Suicide is more common, too. There’s disagreement about whether it’s good or bad that so few have been executed. Death-penalty advocates say it’s “justice delayed, justice denied,” especially when victims’ relatives die before the killers. Opponents say delays leave time for evidence to be found to exonerate the innocent. Still, almost no one disputes the conclusion of a state commission two years ago...

A plan to overhaul the 2002 education law championed by President George W. Bush was unveiled by the Obama administration Saturday in hopes of replacing a system that in the last decade has tagged more than a third of schools as failing and created a hodgepodge of sometimes weak academic standards among states.

But once voters started noticing what a corrupt, deficit-exploding assault on the free market this was and turning against it in droves, Democrats reneged. Now, contrary to everything we were told, this illegal trillion-dollar government takeover--which will impose staggering tax hikes in the middle of a severe recession--is being negotiated through blackmail and kickbacks in smoke-filled rooms...

    Democrats promise jobs billBy ANDREW TAYLOR (AP) – 40 minutes ago WASHINGTON — House Democrats are looking at swelling deficits further, at least temporarily, on a jobs-producing bill in response to double-digit unemployment and a sense within their ranks that the party needs to do more to put people back to work. But many of the ideas on the table so far are extensions of last February's $787 billion economic stimulus package — such as unemployment benefits and subsidies to help the jobless pay for health insurance. They maintain the social safety net for the 15.7 million Americans out of...

BAGHDAD — In an open-air factory on the outskirts of northeast Baghdad, Iraqi workers diligently polish mosaic tiles with buffers, spraying water in circular, cascading waves. An Iraqi teenager sweeps the water toward a drainage ditch with a determined look on his face as the workers' machines drone on noisily. The owner of the factory, a distinguished Iraqi man with salt and pepper hair, strides toward the wrought iron gate...

    It seemed among the easiest of his transparency pledges and is entirely under his control, but President Obama is finagling his promise to post bills on the White House Web site for comment for five days before he signs them. Mr. Obama last week signed four bills, each just a day or two after Congress passed and sent it over to him.

    We never really believed it anyway. Remember Senator Obama, he who voted with the Democrats 97% of the time, likely the most partisan member of the Senate during his short stay in office (at least when he did make it to chamber for a vote)? On the flip side, remember Candidate Obama who promised to reach across the aisle and work with Republicans in the House and Senate to come to agreements that are sensible for all Americans? He called it bipartisanship.

    (IsraelNN.com) Kadima Party leader Tzipi Livni, who is to inform President Shimon Peres today that she failed at forming a new government, admits it's because she refused a Shas demand to promise to keep all of Jerusalem. Livni was able to reach a coalition agreement with Labor, but the Shas Party informed her late last week that it would be unable to join her government. Without Shas, Livni cannot form a government with a comfortable Knesset majority. Shas says that Livni refused to meet its demands: Increased montly child allowance payments for large and medium-sized families, and a promise to...

    What exactly is "America's promise", according to Obama? I kept waiting for him to define it and all I kept hearing was America's promise is what makes us Americans and it's why people want to come here, etc. Then I thought, does he think America promises everyone a wonderful life and future? I mean, we offer opportunities for a wonderful future if you want to work hard, but we don't promise it. What is it? Did I miss something?
