  1. The only good news in the morning news is seeing how worried Dems are about the mid-terms. If can kick Harry Reid out of his dictatorship of the Senate that Obama is isolated and will have to explain each and ever veto like Clinton did in the 90’s.
    Eventually, O will have to allow some legislation through or he will have so poisoned the Dem brand that to paraphrase LBJ “He’ll have the voting Republican for the next 50 years”.

  2. Why haven’t I seen any articles about the US involvement in trying to get to the wreckage of the Malaysian airplane that was shot down? Or our leaders making statements? I haven’t seen any prominent US stories about this, is the media pretending it didn’t happen? Didn’t US citizens die?

    From Wikipedia on the Lusitania:

    “In firing on a non-military ship without warning, the Germans had breached the international laws known as the Cruiser Rules. Although the Germans had reasons for treating Lusitania as a naval vessel, including that the ship was carrying war munitions and that the British had also been breaching the Cruiser Rules,[4][5][6][7][8] the sinking caused a storm of protest in the United States, as 128 Americans were among the dead. It also influenced the decision by the US to declare war in 1917.”

    Sound familiar??

    • Thanks for those notes. I watched a documentary last week regarding this issue. I know the news stations have a lot to cover, however there is a scroll at the bottom to let us read other information. However I have not seen any information as well on the internet. A MISSILE shot down a airplane. Seems important to me.
      A word for the American Citizen and family, God Bless.
      (As well as the other passengers).

      Regarding O yelling at Netanyahu, if it weren’t so pathetic, it would be funny.

    • I have no problem with the image of Obama yelling at someone — he has evil snake eyes. That said, there probably was a slight whitewashing in the article. Most likely, he handed the phone to President ValJar, and she did the yelling and demanding. But to leak that would be a step too far.
