    Now is not the time for a bunt. This is the time to swing for the bleachers. I was a house painter for many years. In a profession famous for drunks who show up late, finish late, and inflate prices in between, I found that if I did what I said I was going to do when I said I was going to do it for the price agreed upon, I never ran out of work. As a matter of fact I was always the highest priced and most sought after painter in every market I ever entered with a...

    The Bible is the ultimate lesson giver. This is certainly true in the story about Jephthah’s tragic mistake, which confirms Robert Service’s truth: A promise made is a debt unpaid. In Robert Service’s poem, “The Cremation Of Sam McGee,” one line reads, “A promise made is a debt unpaid,” which reminds me of a story told to me by my boyhood best friend and mentor, Jaybird, by far the best storyteller I have ever known. The old black man had a powerful memory, and never forgot any of the Biblical tales read to him by his children or me, and...

    During an interview with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, President Barack Obama said that his absolute commitment that if Israel were attacked by any state, that we would stand by them and that it should be sufficient for them to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and accept his Iran nuclear deal as a good step forward. Obama said, Now, what you might hear from Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu, which I respect, is the notion, Look, Israel is more vulnerable. We dont have the luxury of testing these propositions the way you do, and I completely understand that. And...

    Tzipi Livni, head of Hatnua and possible prime minister of Israel if her "Zionist camp" union with Labor wins in elections, after which there would be a rotation between her and Labor head Yitzhak Herzog, made a campaign promise on Saturday of same-sex marriage. Livni was at a "Dreck" party at the Oman 17 club in Tel Aviv on Saturday night, where she was dancing with gay couples before taking the stage and the microphone. "Good evening Dreck. There's a chance that on March 20 (after elections - ed.) we'll come to celebrate the end of the period of darkness,...

    Texans like to talk all the time about how big Texas is, and how if youre driving from the bottom of Texas to Canada, then youre spending half of your time just getting through the state itself. So is that true? Its 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

It was big, real big, but it fit in all the ways that matter."

    We are told that Obamas 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 Obamas promise zones are absolutely contrary to the legislative intent and letter of our Constitution. Under Obamas 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 Americas free enterprise system and its businesses...

The $250,000 campaign will air in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Alexandria, Shreveport, and Monroe markets. **SNIP** "Yep she is being targeted by the national republican party as one of the democrats who is most up, her seat is most up for grabs so she's trying to defend her turf this far out ahead of the election," says Young.

    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 couldnt 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 Carolinians who believe, basically by implication shouldnt Senator Hagen somebody who signed the bill herself into law know as well?

    **SNIP** Landrieus 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 customers current plan is out of compliance with the ACAs 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 its not going the way it should and Im disappointed and Im frustrated and its totally unacceptable because...

    President Obama's former press secretary, Robert Gibbs, says it was "certainly" wrong for the president to continuously promise that people would be able to keep their health care plans under Obamacare ..."Well, look, I don't recall significant discussions around some of the verbage on this, to be a hundred percent honest with you," said Gibbs this morning. "But do you agree it was a wrong move?" "Oh, well, certainly," said Gibbs. "I mean, I don't think anybody dealing with this today finds what was said. Now, I do think some explanation in terms of the fact that policies that were...

Dan (Pfeiffers crazy spin) on Obamas 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.

    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...

    Remember way back to the 2008 Presidential campaign? Then Senator Obama made a promise, one he repeated over and over for the next few years. Here's a refresher of what he said: "If youve got insurance through your employer, you can keep your insurance. We estimate we can cut the average familys premium by about $2,500 per year. If you dont have health insurance, then were going to provide you the option of buying into the same kind of federal pool that both Sen. McCain and I enjoy as federal employees. Were going to make sure insurance companies cant discriminate...

    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.

Mr. Obama had announced his proposal to designate the so-called Promise Zones during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, but did not provide many details. As part of the effort,

    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...
