News Links That Caught My Eye

This is really funny, until you think about it:

But the New York Times seems to think there might be a story somewhere in this “quasi-secret” drone war. And if memory serves, the NYT is a newspaper. They have like journalists and everything. Printing presses, the works.

And this isn’t funny at all no matter how you look at it:


In the case of his own Justice Department’s legal opinions on assassination and the “targeted killing” of terrorism suspects, however, Mr. Obama has taken a different approach. Though he entered office promising the most transparent administration in history, he has adamantly refused to make those opinions public — notably one that justified the 2011 drone strike in Yemen that killed an American, Anwar al-Awlaki. His administration has withheld them even from the Senate and House intelligence committees and has fought in court to keep them secret, making any public debate on the issue difficult.

Obamacare is going to push at least 7 million formerly insured Americans right out of their health care plan. Remember when the President promised you’d get to keep your plan? I knew he was lying. Probably will be even worse.

    The bill does not single out homeschoolers, it applies to public school children as well. For some reason the drafters of the bill forgot to mention private schools, but that’s a different issue.

    Text is available here – just search for bill 374.

      Homeschoolers should be exempt.
