Political squabbles
Nov 21 2014 - McClatchy DC by DAN K. THOMASSON
If you think governmental dysfunction has been alleviated by the midterm elections, think again. As the Republicans prepare to take control of both houses of the Congress, the same elements that have produced gridlock between the legislature and the presidency remain in place despite pledges from key players to try to make things work for a change.
Editor's Comments:
That's all because Thomasson believes that government fixes problems. Mostly, it doesn't. We are better off with gridlock. bbm

President Obama
Nov 21 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Amnesty: Pundits warn that a funding fight over the president's move to grant de facto amnesty to illegal aliens threatens a politically risky government shutdown. But there's something much more important at stake here.
Nov 21 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Education: In addition to amnesty for illegal immigrants, Obama has ordered amnesty for delinquents in America's schools. What's happening in principal's offices is as blatantly illegal as what's happening on the border.
Nov 21 2014 - Times Union, Albany NY by RUTH MARCUS

Campaign for President
Nov 21 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by E.J. DIONNE JR.
President Obama will no doubt clash regularly with his newly empowered partisan adversaries in Congress. But the most important struggle in American politics over the next two years will be inside the Republican Party. And the person who can play a decisive role in that battle is Jeb Bush.

Editor's Comments:
Someone has to come along and challenge the far right's worldview altogether. And this is where Jeb Bush comes in." Dionne wouldn't know the proper world view if it bit him in the behind. He just wants somebody that will allow libs to further destroy America. bb

Money Supply

Iran's nuclear programs
Nov 21 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Nuclear Showdown: Monday is the deadline in Iranian nuclear talks, and it's a good bet Tehran will spring a last–minute offer this weekend. Any deal is bad because Iran won't accept an end to its nuclear program.

Immigration effects on American workers
Nov 21 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by MICHAEL BARONE
'When the facts change, I change my mind," economist John Maynard Keynes is supposed to have said when charged with inconsistency. "What do you do, sir?"
Immigrants
Nov 21 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Illegal Immigration: Rep. Michele Bachmann warned that the immigrants about to be amnestied have high illiteracy rates and may vote. The left howled, but the reality is she understated it. The hard data tell the story.
Immigration
Nov 21 2014 - Front Page Magazine by Daniel Greenfield
Obama’s excuse for his illegal amnesty will be that the immigration system is “broken” forcing him to act. But when Obama says that the system is broken, he means that some parts of it still work and so he intends to break immigration all the way through to benefit his own corrupt political allies.
