  • GREEK ELECTION UPDATE: LEFTIST SYRIZA AND CONSERVATIVE INDEPENDENT GREEKS WILL FORM COALITION

    1/26/2015 | Self
    The vote totals are still being finalized but the latest show the SYRIZA Party at 150 of the 300 seats in the Greek parliament with 36.3 percent of the vote. This is one vote short of an overall majority but multiple media sources including "The Wall Street Journal" are reporting that the conservative Independent Greeks, who broke away from the New Democracy (Republican type) Party in 2011 and are firmly against the EU austerity program will join up to stablilize the government. The Independent Greeks (ANEL) won 4.7 percent of the popular vote and 13 seats. The SYRIZA-ANEL alliance would...
  • A method to restore rights to the law abiding in public venues-an idea (Vanity)

    I was thinking about an upcoming event where I will be forced to go into a venue sans gun on my hip because of metal detectors and thought of a way where the law-abiding could carry guns into public venues and metal detectors could be done away with (though this latter point will likely never happen, I admit). Through the creation of a new database containing all violent criminals, the venues could turn away people with no subjectivity. They would even be given the option of levels of information of violent criminals. With an instant background check, people with a...

    Friend, This year has a chance to be incredible for our country, but after President Obama’s speech last night, it’s clear we have a long battle ahead. He just ensured that he will fight our every move with his go-it-alone agenda of vetoes and executive orders. That’s why we need you to stand with us and renew your membership with the NRCC today.

    Let's play Connect the Dots. This is not a rocket scientist level game once you complete the connections. Obama's hatred for the West, Western Europe and especially the Brits goes back to the days when the Brits carved up the old Mesopotamia into what is now much of the Middle East. He returned Churchill bust -- a gift from the Brits – within days of entering the White House and routinely disrespectfully props his feet atop the desk fashioned from the timbers of the famed warship HMS Resolute the Brits gifted to President Hayes in 1880) due to their sometimes...

    Patriots defenders constantly make the point that deflated balls were not a big deal last Sunday, because the Pats won so convincingly over Indy. Maybe. But what about the Ravens game a week earlier? That one WAS close - 35-31. Does anyone really think the Pats weren't pulling their under-inflation tricks then, that it just started last week? Other teams raised the issue back in November, so it's reasonable to assume it's been going on since at least then.

If you expect "Sand of Iwo Jima," you will be sadly disappointed. Eastwood's goal is less to explain why men become soldiers---especially in an all-volunteer force---or even why they fight than it is to understand what combat does to a person.</p>

    Obama's release of five more Yemeni terrorists from GITMO yesterday, one week after the terrorist attacks in Paris is beyond words. It wasn't outrageous enough that he didn't appear at the anti-terror march in Paris, he had to follow that up with what can only be described as a show of solidarity with Islamic terrorism since Yemen is where the two Kouachi brothers got their weapons training before their brutal attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine. To say the President of the United States is an Islamic extremist let alone Muslim is unfathomable. But how else can his 'no show' or...

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that a small number of settlers threw rocks at officials who had come to an area near the Jewish settlement outpost of Adi Ad in two consular vehicles to look into Palestinian claims that settlers uprooted scores of Palestinian olive trees the day before. He said that after the rock barrage began, the vehicles left the area,...
