-First Lady, Michelle Obama
If you can’t dictate choices, place a cap on them.
Mayor Bloomberg might not be advocating a “one size fits all” soda consumption solution…but the choice selection on sizing will soon be limited. No more Starbucks Trenta and Venti; or 7-11 Big Gulps, Double Gulps, and Super Big Gulps…
With an election looming, Barack Obama is politicizing everything under his control- including programs which would best be kept quiet. Drones have become the new plaything for Obama. They offer are seemingly cleaner approach to war. Drones were developed under the Bush administration and expanded under Obama. A recent NY Times article disclosed a surprising amount of information, including one stunner- that it is Obama himself who decides who dies. Our President personally authorizes the assassination of persons believed to be involved in terrorist activities.
Not everyone on the left were fooled into pulling the lever for Obama in 2008, as the anti-war candidate who would end the war(s) and bring our troops home. Yet pull the lever they did when the alternative was John McCain (although if it were Ron Paul in ’08, perhaps the Code Pink vote would have gone to the GOP). Some on the anti-war left read between the lines of Senator Obama’s rhetoric, yet were willing to take a gamble on “hope and change” after 8 years of “Bush’s wars”.
But now that they’ve experienced almost 4 years of an Obama presidency in action, how much has actually changed and how much has stayed the course?
President Barack Obama: “The job of a president is to lay the foundation for strong and sustainable broad- based growth — not one where a small group of speculators are cashing in on short term gains.”
Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney: “There’s no question but that he’s attacking capitalism, in part, I think, because he doesn’t understand how the free economy works.”
Some of us are in awe of our troops and their devotion; yet, when we look at the people around us, we shake our heads and wonder where these young people come from, since there seems to be so few Americans with enough backbone to step forward and stand on the wall. Sadly they are but a small percentage of the 350 million people of this country, and yet, so much is owed by so many to such a small number of people.

One can’t but hear the almost daily drumbeat from the left about how unequal things are in the United States. There is an income disparity between the haves and the have-nots where Wall Street bankers take millions of dollars home to their Greenwich mansions while millions of others work for minimum wage and can’t afford their own home, never mind something resembling a mini-Versailles.
Who is Brett Kimberlin?

I come from a family with a proud military history. My father was a Leatherneck in WWII, seeing heavy action in the South Pacific. He was in the invasion of Okinawa and stood awestruck one August morning when he saw that mushroom cloud over Hiroshima. My younger brother also served his country in the First Gulf War in the Navy, ultimately deciding to become a family man rather than take the PST to qualify for the Navy Seals after he was approached by his CO.
