I don't know the circumstances of this incident, but my inclination would not be to burn the books. I would probably try to give them to an Afghan library, if there is such a thing.

Regardless, Afghanistan and all these adventures in muslim countries are getting tiresome.

Looks good, but it will be a little while before I see it.

As Act of Valor developed with the SEALs on board as advisors, the filmmakers realized that no actors could realistically portray or physically fill the roles they had written and the actual SEALs were drafted to star in the film. The SEALs will remain anonymous, as none of their names will appear in the film's credits.

>>>>> Chart: 'America’s Per Capita Government Debt Worse Than Greece'<<<<


The answer to this probably will be that we have higher incomes, higher productivity, etc. But if that's the case, how come we are not just in debt, but deeper than any other nation?

The mainstream cure is -- to go ahead and borrow more, much more.

A friend of mine told his doctor about stress and his doctor told him not to watch the news.

I can live with that, but would prefer Rubio, Cristie or Ryan.

Out for just a bit today....Same local station was $4.09 today, up $0.10 from YESTERDAY......was $3.99/regular

What is driving the price up so high so fast? I'm with unclewest....there must be some reason we aren't being told.....

Iran has been saber rattling for months, and gas was fairly stead.....so what is the difference this week....?

Today’s Gas Prices Aren’t Bush’s or Iran’s Fault: These Are Barack Obama’s Gas Prices


by AWR Hawkins


During last night’s debate in Mesa, AZ, moderator CNN’s John King suggested Iran’s behavior was driving gas prices up, and asked the candidates how they’d deal with Iran in order to stabilize the price of petroleum. What an asinine question! Our gas-price problem isn’t because of Iran, rather, it’s because of Barack Obama. If we were drilling for our own oil, as Sarah Palin suggested in 2008 with “Drill Here, Drill Now,” it wouldn’t matter what Iran was doing with their crude, for we would be producing enough oil at home to drastically cut (and eventually eliminate) our use of foreign oil.



Seriously folks, King’s question struck me as way for him to lay down cover for Obama, who has spent his presidency looking for cover and scapegoats to explain away his failure. (Those aren’t my words alone – in a recent USAToday poll 50% of respondents said they’d rank Obama as a failure, while only 44% said he was a success.)

Obama was blaming Bush before Obama ever got elected. Surely you remember how the world’s low opinion of the U.S. was “Bush’s fault” and the failures of General Motors and Chrysler were “Bush’s fault” too (according to Obama, of course). And once he entered the White House, Obama kept pointing back to Bush every time something went wrong. Obama’s deficit spending in 2009 was “Bush’s fault,” the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 was “Bush’s fault,” and as recently as December 2011, the faltering economy Obama had spent 2 years and 11 months destroying was “Bush’s fault.”

Now the gas crisis we’re embarking upon is Iran’s fault? Sorry folks, but I’m not going to drink the Kool-Aid which John King and the rest of the Obama surrogates are trying to pass around.



Our gas prices are, at this very moment, bumping up against $6 a gallon in some parts of the country. It isn’t Bush’s fault, and it isn’t Iran’s fault either. Rather, it’s Obama’s fault for denying us the very crude that lies in rich deposits throughout the continental U.S., Alaska, and just off our shores. Keep that in mind when you fill your gas tank this week and in the weeks to come, and the price you pay for gasoline destroys your household budget.

Even if Iran cuts off all oil to our country, Obama is ultimately to blame for the jump in gasoline prices. From day one, he and those he has placed around him have done all they can to prevent us from drilling here, and drilling now.
