Valentine’s Day 2012….
Hard to believe but today is my wife and I’s 13th wedding anniversary! Yes, we actually got married in Texas (yes, dragged her from Iowa to Texas way back when) on Valentine’s Day. Had to wait at the courthouse for the judge to come down on his day off (this was a saturday) plus a witness to be found. Very quick ceremony for sure!
Then it was to San Antonio to spend our honeymoon.
And harder to believe, but we have 5 (five!) grandkids who are older than we have been married.
So, find a grandmother like I did, and marry her!
Obama budget proposes new security, airline fees And with him making sure the gas prices will continue going up until he is re-elected, traveling will become very expensive!
Sen. John Cornyn says Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is “playing politics” with the nation’s anti-terrorism efforts and has compromised national security and put the lives of military personnel at risk.
The Texas Republican used a Saturday speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington to rail against the attorney general, calling him “hyper-partisan” and “dangerously ideological.”
“Holder has ignored genuine cases of voter intimidation, and he has failed to vigorously enforce the right of our men and women in uniform deployed abroad to be able to cast their ballot,” he said. “Is this the kind of behavior that instills complete confidence in the President of the United States?”
Mr. Cornyn, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also took Mr. Holder — who was appointed by President Obama — to task for releasing previously classified memos on U.S. interrogation methods of suspected terrorist “simply because he didn’t agree with the Bush administration anti-terrorism policies.”
“Holder decided to provide sensitive information to our nation’s enemies and to give our allies fresh cause to worry about our trustworthiness,” he said at CPAC, one of the nation’s premier annual gatherings of conservative activists. “Playing politics with the war on terrorism is unacceptable.”

Explain if you can why Obama is NOT an islamic loving idiot…
Then explain why he wants to give almosat a BILLION DOLLARS of OUR money to a bunch of terrrorist extremists hell-bent on our destruction; animals who kill small children, rape donkeys and routinely offer their asses in the air 5 times a day to a child pedophile?
Where is Congress in this abomination?
And notice the part for an Incentive Fund! What, they get so much money for killing christians? For beheading those who oppose them? Just what incentive is our islamic president talking about?
The White House announced plans on Monday to help “Arab Spring” countries swept by revolutions with more than $800 million in economic aid, while maintaining U.S. military aid to Egypt.
In his annual budget message to Congress, President Barack Obama asked that military aid to Egypt be kept at the level of recent years — $1.3 billion — despite a crisis triggered by an Egyptian probe targeting American democracy activists.
The proposals are part of Obama’s budget request for fiscal year 2013, which begins October 1. His requests need the approval of Congress, where some lawmakers want to cut overseas spending to address U.S. budget shortfalls and are particularly angry at Egypt.
Obama proposed $51.6 billion in funding for the U.S. State Department and foreign aid overall, when $8.2 billion in assistance to war zones is included. The “core budget” for the category would increase by 1.6 percent, officials said.
Most of the economic aid for the Arab Spring countries — $770 million — would go to establish a new “Middle East and North Africa Incentive Fund,” the president said in his budget plan.
If you want to hear from someone who unmistakably understands the profound impact of America’s founding and believes there is still time for its citizens to take hold of its bureaucratic laden government and return it back to the will of it’s founding, then you must hear this speech from Daniel Hannan. You’ll appreciate America all the more afterwards, I assure you.
You can hear it at THE RIGHT SCOOP
The Defense Department may have to force soldiers, Marines or other members of the military out of the services for the first time since the aftermath of the Cold War to achieve the spending reductions in its budget proposal.
The Pentagon plans to cut 67,100 soldiers from active and reserve Army units and the Army National Guard in the five years starting Oct. 1, as well as 15,200 from the active and reserve ranks of the Marine Corps as part of an effort to save $487 billion over a decade, according to the budget sent to Congress today. The Navy and Air Force would lose fewer people — 8,600 and 1,700 respectively — because of their role in a strategic shift toward the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East.
The military will first try buying out contracts or offering bonuses for people to leave, while working to keep those with valuable specialties such as cyber warfare and acquisitions, according to Travis Sharp, a fellow at the Center for a New American Security, a Washington policy group, who attended a Pentagon briefing for analysts last month.

From UN Watch via Big Peace
GENEVA, Feb. 13 – Gays threaten the continuation of the human race, Libya’s delegate told a planning meeting of the UN Human Rights Council today, reported the Geneva-based UN Watch monitoring group. It was the first appearance in the 47-nation body by the post-Gaddafi government, whose membership was restored in November following Libya’s suspension in March.
Protesting the council’s first panel discussion on discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation, scheduled for March 7th, Libya’s representative told the gathering of ambassadors today that LGBT topics “affect religion and the continuation and reproduction of the human race.” He added that, were it not for their suspension, Libya would have opposed the council’s June 2011 resolution on the topic.
“Yet today’s shocking homophobic outburst by the new Libyan government, together with the routine abuse of prisoners, underscores the serious questions we have about whether the new regime is genuinely committed to improving on the dark record of its predecessor, or to pandering to some of the hardline Islamists amidst its ranks,” said Neuer [executive director of UN Watch].
