The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.
It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, to obey the law and support themselves and contribute to society, and others don’t.
That’s the divide in America.
It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.
That’s not invective, that’s truth.
And it’s about time someone said it.
The politics of envy was on proud display last week as the president said he would pledge the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He notes that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.
It was the rationale of thievery.
The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you.
It is the electoral philosophy that gave us Detroit. It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America.

The top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee said Sunni militants are working on the capability to wipe out a city inside the United States.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has long threatened to carry out a catastrophic attack on American soil, with a spokesman recently boasting that the militant group would fly its flag over the White House.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) said ISIS members are “rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city and people just can’t believe that’s happening.”
“Yes, it’s really significant what’s happening,” he added during a local television interview on Wednesday.
President Obama has stepped up U.S. air attacks against the group in Iraq after it posted a video online showing the execution of American photojournalist James Foley.
On Thursday, U.S. Central Command announced it had completed six more attacks near the Mosul Dam, making a total of 90 strikes since Obama authorized them on Aug. 8.
Inhofe said that despite the pounding by U.S. forces, ISIS could still inspire followers to attack stateside.
He also slammed the president for not coming up with a strategy to defeat ISIS.
“He's going to have to come up with something that we're going to do because they're holding another hostage in place and the problem is the president, quite frankly, says all these things and he never does them,” Inhofe said.
ISIS is believed to be holding at least four other U.S. prisoners, including journalist Steven Joel Sotloff, who appeared in the ISIS video showing Foley’s execution. The man speaking in that video threatened that Sotloff would be killed next.
Our tax money sailing out our doors!!
Food stamp recipients were selling their benefits online in exchange for money, housing or even art, according to a report federal investigators released Thursday that showed states manage to catch just a fraction of potential fraud in the sprawling program.
Use of the food stamps, now officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, has skyrocketed under President Obama, reaching 47 million recipients at a cost of $76 billion last year. But states recovered just $74 million in fraudulent payments the previous year, according to the Government Accountability Office.
GAO investigators reviewed records from 11 states and found they lacked sufficient staff and tools to catch fraud in the ballooning program.
“Such rapid program growth can increase the potential for fraud unless appropriate agency controls are in place to help minimize these risks,” the investigators said in their report.
In one online posting from Jacksonville, Florida, someone was asking for $100 cash in exchange for $228 in food stamps.
One ad from Raleigh, North Carolina, offered 10 days of cooking and cleaning services in exchange for food stamps.
A Charlotte, North Carolina, poster said he would trade food stamps for beer, and a Houston ad proposed exchanging food stamps for a catalytic converter.
this story is very interesting to say the least and that's why I posted it
It's Official, Obama Broke Law in Bergdahl Swap -- Now What?
It’s always good to hear that there is at least one government agency that’s doing its job, working for the people.
But it’s also very discouraging to realize that nothing is likely to come of it.
The General Accounting Office has issued an official report that flat-out states that the Obama Administration broke the law in swapping five Guantanamo Bay terrorist inmates for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl by an Islamic terror group.
“[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the transfer,” the GAO report said. “In addition, because DOD used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for that purpose, DOD violated the Antideficiency Act. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from incurring obligations exceeding an amount available in an appropriation.”
In his role as commander in chief, Obama is not only generally responsible for the actions of the Department of Defense, but he and his White House minions initially bragged of his involvement in bringing home an alleged prisoner of war.
The United States “made an ironclad commitment to bring our prisoners of war home,” Obama said at the time of the Bergdahl announcement in the Rose Garden. “It’s who we are as Americans. Today, at least in this instance, it’s a promise we’ve been able to keep.”
Too bad he couldn’t also keep his promise to uphold the Constitution and the laws of this nation, but since Obama is clearly an “ends justify the means” kind of guy, let’s just assume he knew he was breaking the law again when he traded five murderous villains for Bergdahl.
Let’s also assume that Obama’s people told him that Bergdahl was a traitor who had gone AWOL from his unit and who gives every evidence of being a sympathizer for the Islamist cause — in other words, Obama’s kind of scum.
The only apparent surprise was that the public figured out the scam as quickly as it did.
Now that the GAO has confirmed that Obama broke the law, add it to the long list of high crimes and misdemeanors that we can’t impeach him for because Harry Reid is squatting like a vulture on any legislation that might be bad for his master, King Putt. The Boehner lawsuit doesn’t seem any closer to a courtroom, so once again Obama gets away with it, at least for the moment.
