Don’t miss the 100 best Springsteen songs of all timeThe tour focuses largely on markets that Springsteen skipped on his 2012 North American tour in support of Wrecking Ball. “As much as we played, we didn’t get to Texas, where I love to play,” Springsteen told Rolling Stone late last year. “We didn’t get to Florida. There were some other places we didn’t get on that entire tour. It might be fun to get back to some of those places.”
Obama will do anything to make sure his power is absolute.
Check it out:
The president does behave outside the Constitution. I mean, Sheila Jackson Lee, in the House of Representatives, is saying that their job now is to write executive orders for Obama to sign. Not laws, but write executive orders! During his State of the Coup speech, when Obama announced that if they didn’t do what he wanted, he’s gonna go do it anyway, the Democrats stood up and cheered.
He in effect told members of Congress, “Screw you,” and they gave him a standing ovation! They are totally willing to grant dictatorial power to one of their own, and they gave that premise a standing ovation. So Boehner then says (paraphrased), “Well, I mean, why even do it? He’s not gonna obey whatever we come up with. He’s not obeying the laws we have now. He’s not obeying his own law.
The president’s partisan lawyers purport to vest him with the most extreme power a political leader can seize
(The Guardian) – The most extremist power any political leader can assert is the power to target his own citizens for execution without any charges or due process, far from any battlefield. The Obama administration has not only asserted exactly that power in theory, but has exercised it in practice. In September 2011, it killed US citizen Anwar Awlaki in a drone strike inYemen, along with US citizen Samir Khan, and then, in circumstances that are still unexplained, two weeks later killed Awlaki’s 16-year-old American son Abdulrahman with a separate drone strikes in Yemen.
A long-awaited State Department review has raised no serious environmental objections to the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, potentially setting the stage for President Obama to approve the massive, politically charged project and dealing a blow to environmentalists who vehemently oppose it.
The lengthy Environmental Impact Study, the final version of which was released Friday afternoon, determined that the Canada-to-Texas pipeline will have little or no bearing on the overall crude oil market in North America. In other words, the report found that greenhouse gas emissions are unlikely to change significantly if the pipeline is built, since Canada will surely continue to exploit the oil sands from Alberta and move the fuel to market even if the project is denied.
The Obama political operation that once buried Hillary Rodham Clinton’s White House ambitions is now rapidly converging around her possible 2016 presidential bid, conferring on Mrs. Clinton enormous early advantages in money, expertise and voter targeting techniques.On Thursday, Priorities USA Action, a “super PAC” that played an important role in helping re-elect President Obama, announced that it was formally aligning itself with Mrs. Clinton and would begin raising money to fend off potential opponents for 2016.
Robert Laszewski—a prominent consultant to health insurance companies—recently wrote in a remarkably candid blog post that, while Obamacare is almost certain to cause insurance costs to skyrocket even higher than it already has, “insurers won’t be losing a lot of sleep over it.” How can this be? Because insurance companies won’t bear the cost of their own losses—at least not more than about a quarter of them. The other three-quarters will be borne by American taxpayers.

1. The Second Amendment codifies a pre-existing right

The Constitution doesn’t grant or create rights; it recognizes and protects rights that inherently exist. This is why the Founders used the word “unalienable” previously in the Declaration of Independence; these rights cannot be created or taken away. In D.C. vs. Heller, the Supreme Court said the Second Amendment “codified a pre-existing right. The very text of the Second Amendment implicitly recognizes the pre-existence of the right and declares only that it “shall not be infringed … this is not a right granted by the Constitution” (p. 19).
2. The Second Amendment protects individual, not collective rights
During his 28 years on the police force in Los Angeles, James Craig tended to agree with his state’s tight control over concealed carry permits, believing fewer guns would lead to fewer violent crimes.
But when he moved to Portland, Maine, in 2009 to serve as the city’s new police chief, he discovered a different culture – one where guns actually made people safer.
In America, freedom of speech is encouraged…so long as you agree with the liberal left » Liberty Alliance
One of the most hypocritical aspects in America is the notion that liberals are some bastions for freedom, acceptance and tolerance.
That’s horse manure.
Liberals propagate this false notion that everyone should have a voice and everyone should be accepted for their views. But in truth, liberals believe that everyone should have a voice and everyone should be accepted for their views so long as they speak in agreement and share the same views as liberals.
The most recent example making headlines is that of Phil Robertson who dared speak his mind with regards to homosexuality.
Tamara Jackson did a great story on the fallout that can be read here: A&E: Phil Robertson on hiatus after frank comments on homosexuality!
Phil Robertson gave an interview in which he stated that he doesn’t believe that homosexuality is right and that he does not embrace it. Yet he also said that he doesn’t disrespect people who are different than him but maintains his right not to be forced to accept their choices.
