    The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today. “As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder told reporters.

Tea Party prominent: Palin not presidential (Tancredo says McCain “nasty, mean” and “unstable”)
NRC.nl [with added redactions for McCain's foul language] ^ | 2010-02-28 | Tom-Jan Meeus

His loathing for McCain has a long history. “I don’t like him,” Tancredo said. “He is not a very pleasant person. He is nasty, mean; the skin of an onion would look deep compared to his. He has a short fuse, he is almost peculiarly unstable.”

He still remembers his first encounter with the senator from Arizona. In 1999, Tancredo was elected to the House with 54 percent of the votes in his Colorado district. “When you win with less than 55 percent of the vote, you are seen as vulnerable. So then the party will go out to the superstars and say, can you please pick one or two vulnerables and do a fundraiser for them.” Somebody in McCain’s office picked him. “And I go, that’s great!” Tancredo recalled.

One day, he went over to the Senate and bumped into McCain in the elevator. “I had never met him. So I shake his hand to thank him for doing the fundraiser.” The senator then asked if he could count on Tancredo’s support for McCain-Feingold (a bipartisan campaign reform act McCain had drafted with Democratic senator Russell Feingold). Tancredo opposed this proposed regulation of political campaign financing, and he told McCain. “So I go: ‘I am voting no, I don’t like it. I actually think it’s terrible’.”

“It was like a bomb went off in his head. He exploded! He was screaming at me! It was, ‘When I come across the f**king street, you are…’ And, ‘You don’t know what the f**k you are talking about!’ And I said, ‘What?!’ I was just so taken aback. But then I went after him: ‘Hey, nobody told me you are coming to help me for a quid pro quo for a shit bill!’ It just got worse. It was really bad, I remember us getting out of the elevator and people stepped back way up because they couldn’t handle the screaming.”

The two never reconciled. “From there, it only went downhill,” according to Tancredo.

Obama and Democrats’ Unprecedented Attack against American People and the Obama Summit

Obama’s Unprecedented Attack Against The American People


Sher Zieve says that for the first time since the loyalists to King George III and the British army moved against the American colonists and patriots, the government is moving en masse to both stop and silence any opposition from the American people to Obama and any and all of his and his Marxist-Democrats.

While watching Thursday’s faux Obama-organized Health Care Summit (planned as a day of photo-ops and sound-bites for Obama’s 2012 campaign), it became clear to me and others that the Democrat leadership had and have no intention of listening to sound arguments against the ObamaCare Death Plan, Cap & Trade or any of the other ulterior-motive clandestine procedures they have planned against We-the-People.

Instead, Harry Reid had already announced the day before — Wednesday — that he and the Dems would affect reconciliation (the “ramming and shoving” process), probably next week, in the Senate in order to force the despotic ObamaCare Death Plan onto us.  Note: Reconciliation — incorporating a simple and not a super majority — is supposed to be used for budgetary items.

In fact, this Obama “summit” quickly degraded and devolved into Obama shutting down any Republican who offered alternate proposals and opposing comments, while Democrats engaged in ongoing “kiss the tyrant” moments.  In fact, Obama told Republicans that he could speak as long as he wanted because…”I’m the president!”  Apparently, the rest of the Democrat leadership believed the same about their own self-inflated self-importance as comment-time from the far-left was twice as long as comments from the right.  Note: That’s also “right” as in “correct.”

During Thursday’s Health Care Summit, I viewed the patently totalitarian Marxist-Democrat Party telling We-the-People that we no longer matter to them. Our voices are — once and for all per the Democrats — of no further importance.  Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Dictator-in-Chief Obama made it crystal clear that the American people WILL accept whatever draconian plans they force upon them — and like it — or else.  Each and every time the questioning and contradictions from the right to false statements made by the dictator-in-chief became too uncomfortable for his fragile ego’ or simply presented the truth in too bright a light, Obama shut down the questioner with reprimands similar to “you’re off of the subject” or “stop your talking points” or “the campaign is over and I won.”

During much of the time Representative Eric Cantor (R-VA) was quoting directly from one of the voluminous Democrat ObamaCare plans, Obama refused to make eye contact with him and, with increasingly tightly-pursed lips, started shuffling through some of the papers in front of him.  Note: This was a Judge Judy moment.  Whenever this happens on her television show, Judge Judy Sheindlin says sternly to the offender: “Put down your papers and look at me!”  Wish she’d been there.

As long as any of the Marxist-Democrat Party members are in power, their abuses of said power will continue to escalate.  This is what despots do.  When asked at the ObamaSummit if the Democrat leadership was even listening to the American people, the response was either silence or a quick change of the subject.

Not since the first American Revolution War officially began in 1775 has the oppression against We-the-People from the government been so intense and so relentless.  Now, for the first time in our history, the majority leadership within the US Government is moving against its own people with increasing alacrity, force and determination.  They have told us and continue to shout to us in myriad ways that they will refuse to listen to anything we say unless it is to thank them (our new “masters”) for placing us into bondage and slavery.

BC Burned In A Fire?

Sky News’ Dissembler and Propagandist

As you folks know, I have spent the last two years researching the life and times of the ObamaMessiah, and today I just learned something new.  Barack Obama’s birth certificate was destroyed in a fire.

In an article, entitled, “Obama ‘Birther’ Row Rears Its Head Again,” Greg Milam, identified as a “U. S correspondent” for Sky News, the British version of Fox News, has just introduced a whole new reason for Obama not presenting his birth certificate to confirm his eligibility — it was burned in a fire! — poor Barack — everything seems to happen to him.

In a lifetime of associations of nearly exclusively unsavory characters, poet and pornographer Frank Marshall Davis ranks among the least savory of the lot.

Davis was a communist, poet, alcoholic, sexual deviant, and fomenter of racial hatred. Cleverly disguised as Frank in Dreams, we learn that young Barry was treated to Davis’s counsel on numerous occasions. Dear Grandpa Stanley, blessed with an inordinate amount of free time, thanks to his wife’s hard work, enjoyed whiling away the hours with Davis, drinking and smoking pot.

In yet another series of twists and loops, Davis was born in Kansas, as were the Dunhams. It is not entirely clear whether Davis and Dunham knew each other in Kansas. Davis, an unabashed admirer of the Soviet Union, member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), and cultivator of racial hatred, worked as a columnist in Chicago, where he fancied himself someone of great importance.

    With virtually zero debate – or media attention – President Barack Obama has signed a one-year extension for what many considered the most crucial and controversial aspects of the USA PATRIOT Act. The provisions, set to expire Sunday without the signature of Obama, include extensions to allow: -1) “roving” wiretaps, permitting surveillance on multiple phones and e-mail addresses. -2) court-approved seizures of records and property in anti-terrorism operations.

The Personal Testimony of a Teacher on the Failing Educational System In America
The Ignorant Fishermen Blog ^ | 1/5/10 | JET I.F./ DJP I.F.

Posted on Sunday, February 28, 2010 8:22:23 AM by The Ignorant Fisherman

Right off the bat let me tell you about myself. My credentials – a recently retired black teacher of 40 years in the Hartford, Connecticut public school system. I was raised in a large inner city of Washington D.C. and educated in the public school system. I possess a Bachelors and Masters Degree and am a “people person” who loves teaching.

I retired this past year with great disappointment and sadness for the public school system, the individual students, teachers and parents. The current education system is failing to do the job of educating our children. There are individual successes, but for the most part the successes are very few. The educational system as a whole would be a lot better if they would only choose to do what is right for our children, but they WILL NOT. Many, many harmful changes have accrued in the 40 years that I have taught. In this post I will attempt to state these changes that I have witnessed firsthand. First of all, may I testify to you that I have personally changed.

In the first 10 years of my teaching career I was neither conservative nor patriotic, and without the Lord Jesus as my personal Savior.

Based upon the behavior and the circumstances of Barack Obama’s election, it has become increasingly obvious that Barack Obama has loyalties and allegiences to foreign powers and foreign ideologies. Based upon both dishonest public statements and a failure of Obama to produce authentic documentation of his elgibility to hold public office, I pray for relief from this executive branch led by an avowed marxist.

Glenn Beck: I Used to Be a Social Liberal Before I Discovered Alcoholics Anonymous and Sobered Up
Associated Content (AC) ^ | February 28, 2010 | Marc Schenker

Posted on Sunday, February 28, 2010 5:16:13 AM by Suvroc10

Glenn Beck used to be a social liberal before he discovered Alcoholics Anonymous and then consequently sobered up. This admission—coming straight from the man’s lips on his Friday TV show on FNC during a special entitled “Who Are You?”—may not be a surprise to some who know Beck’s backstory, but it certainly reinforces the conventional wisdom that liberalism breeds weakness and is oftentimes an impediment to personal self-improvement. His declaration came in the context of “knowing yourself” politically and ideologically, the theme of Friday’s Glenn Beck show special on FNC. Stating that his recovery from alcoholism came only after he truly discovered who he was—libertarian conservative—Beck also went on to assert that he later realized he was only a liberal because he didn’t want to make tough choices or be consistent.

Obama has nothing to support his eligibility, AND he has hits against his eligibility. So what now?

Posted on Saturday, February 27, 2010 8:32:56 PM by capacommie

Lingle sends out a boilerplate letter that says she can’t say anything. The Hawaii Attorney General’s office won’t corroborate Janice Funkino’s statement that Obama was born in Hawaii. Fukino is breaking Hawaii’s information laws which REQUIRE her to provide an uncertified copy of a vital document once the party of interest has already published it in non-redacted form (which was done by Obama). She does not provide the COHB because…it does not exist! She is also breaking Hawaii’s laws which require her to provide a basis for her public statements, which she has refused to do. Obama’s potential names are not listed on the Hawaii indexes (Obama, Soetoro, Dunham, Payne) Obama’s certificate number is impossibly ordered. =forgery So Obama has nada to support his eligibility.

Further Obama has hits against his eligibility. He admits he is ineligible as cosponsor of S.R. 511 which spells out that McCain is a natural born citizen because he was born of 2 US citizen parents on a US possession military base. He admits twice in publication that he (Obama) was born British. If we are to believe his story line since, he is STILL a British citizen to this day.

A natural born citizen has NO other citizenship ties at birth by virtue of place or parentage, than American. So Obama was never a natural born citizen (and this status cannot be granted later, either).

So what now? Technically, he cannot even “prove” he’s 35 and a resident for 14 years, let alone the higher standard of being a natural born citizen (not just a statutory US citizen, which the bots have obfuscated with for 2 years—no statutory US citizen can EVER be a natural born citizen, and vice versa). So really, there’s nothing complex about this situation. No vitals, no school records = ineligible…push the point=STILL ineligible.

Further, he acts like a madman, the 25th should kick in at the very least.

Just Who Is Obama’s “Pop?”

As a 19 year-old, Barack Obama had two of his poems published in the spring 1981 edition of Occidental College’s literary magazine, Feast.

One was a silly poem called “Underground” about “ apes/ that eat figs” in underwater grottoes. A friendly critic has described it as a “vivid if obscurely symbolic description of a tribe of submarine primates.”

Although arguably the best poem about submarine primates ever written, Obama’s literary acolytes have largely–and charitably–chosen not to notice.

It is the second poem, “Pop,” that has attracted respectable press. Poet and novelist Warwick Collins has called it “by far the more powerful and complex” of the two poems, and his is the consensus opinion.

The literary faithful who have reviewed “Pop” see in it the seeds of the literary genius that would seemingly blossom in Obama’s 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father.

Those who know the limits of Obama’s talents, however, see in the poem still more evidence that Obama is not the man or the writer that the faithful think him to be.

A clear-eyed review of “Pop” addresses three basic questions: who is the “Pop” of the poem, how literal is the designation “Pop,” and who actually wrote the poem, which begins as follows:

Surrendering to Barbarism
National Review Online ^ | February 25, 2010 | David Pryce-Jones

Posted on Friday, February 26, 2010 10:52:49 PM by neverdem

Readers of National Review need no introduction to Theodore Dalrymple. Under that byline, or his real name of Anthony Daniels, he is a frequent contributor. There’s no one quite like him. He’s been a doctor and worked in prisons, really coming to grips with the lower depths. Although he reports terrible things, and sometimes has a little gleam of I-told-you-so when reporting something even more terrible than what’s gone before, he refuses to abandon his humane instincts and a belief that it’s worth fighting for civilization even if the cause looks lost.

His very latest book, just published by Encounter Books, has the title The New Vichy Syndrome, and the even more challenging subtitle, Why European Intellectuals Surrender to Barbarism. In the wartime years of Vichy, intellectuals simply surrendered because that was the comfortable thing to do. Now they’re at it again. Europe is in a bad way, with falling birth rates everywhere, and native populations being replaced by immigrants who are mainly Muslim and often unable or unwilling to integrate.

    Social justice is a feel-good term that stands to, as Obama has promised, “Fundamentally change our economy.” Social justice has undergone a transformation in the past fifteen years; it has been adopted by the left as a talking point that can put a friendlier face on more politically charged terms like “income redistribution” and “property redistribution.” But for social justice to become a reality, it is necessary for the middle class to take a step back on the economic scale. Rest assured, our social engineers in Congress and the Administration will sacrifice the continued growth of our middle class for…

Take a Lib to Lunch Day
By Joy Tiz
imageWho picked up the tab for lunch at the health crimes summit?  If the Republicans didn’t they certainly should have.  They finally got a long needed image makeover, courtesy of the Democrats.  Team O could not have teed this thing up better for the opposition.  For months, all we’ve heard is barking about the Republicans being the Party of No.  We actually like them better when they are the Party of Hell, No.  Republicans, we’ve been told over and over again, are obstructionists, refusing to let Soros-Obama go forward with their can’t- fail utopian designs.

First We Take Manhattan, Then We Take Berlin
By Daniel Greenfield
imageThe difference between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama’s political instincts couldn’t be clearer with the Health Care Summit. Clinton knew when to get out, shift focus and outplay his opponents. Obama meanwhile remains under the delusion that he’s a bulldozer that can wreck anything in his path. And so the health care disaster keeps on chugging along.

About the only thing that his Health Care nationalization project has accomplished, has been to hijack Obama’s office, and focus it and congress on a controversial and unpopular proposal. And just because HealthCare.gov has only gotten more unpopular, the longer it chugs along, doesn’t mean that Obama is about to drop that hot potato. No, like the Spartan boy and his fox, he insists on letting it tear him to pieces in the hopes that he can push through and get his bill passed.

The history of American that has been taught to the last 2-3 generations is more lie than truth. The history that they are teaching did NOT occur, for the most part, and the real history is not allowed to be told. I want to establish with you the true beliefs of our Founding Fathers and not my opinion or someone else’s opinion, but their own words concerning what they believed……

Pentagon Issues New Policy On Social Networking

By Pauline Jelinek, Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Everyone from troops in the field to the highest brass and civilian leaders will be allowed to Twitter, blog and use Facebook and other social networking sites on the military’s non-classified computer network, the Pentagon announced Friday.
The new policy follows a seven-month review in which the Defense Department weighed the threats and benefits of allowing the wide use of emerging Internet capabilities. It essentially seeks to manage the risks while acknowledging the Internet is proving a powerful tool for a myriad of tasks including recruiting, public relations, collaboration with a wide range of people and for communications between troops and their families.

To guard security, it allows commanders to cut off access — on a temporary basis only — if that’s required to safeguard a mission or reserve bandwidth for official use. The new directive also makes practices uniform across the entire department, in which different commands previously blocked certain things while others didn’t. Visiting sites for pornography, gambling or hate-crime activities is still prohibited on military computers.

“We need to take advantage of these capabilities that are out there — this Web 2.0 phenomena,” said David M. Wennergren, deputy assistant secretary of defense for information technology. “The idea is be responsible and use these tools to help get the job done.”

The new directive means that YouTube, MySpace and more than a dozen sites blocked by the Pentagon in May 2007 will be unblocked, he said. The Pentagon said at the time that the use of video sites in particular was straining its network and using too much of its bandwidth. But Wennergren said Friday that the move failed to stem the use of bandwidth because people just went to alternate sites.

Woman, 61, arrested for asking ‘why’

Four women, two of them well into middle age, were discussing funeral plans for a friend when an Atlanta police officer told them to move.

Three did but one asked “why.” In answer to her question, Minnie Carey, then 61, was handcuffed, put into a police wagon and taken to jail, where she was held for nine hours.

The Citizen Review Board found that Atlanta Police officer Brandy Dolson had violated APD policies and had falsely arrested Carey.

“I was blown away,” Carey told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I had heard about people in the community being harassed by the police … It really didn’t shock me as much as it probably would have if I had not heard of people going to jail for no reason. I figured I was just another one.

So you still think Islam is a “religion of peace?”

Muslim man throws his 3-year-old baby girl off a bridge to her death! Last week, a Muslim man in New Jersey kidnapped his 3-year-old daughter for the girls maternal grandmother, drove to a nearby bridge, and tossed her to her death in the icy waters of the river below….AFTER consulting with his Imam!!! Here is what I want you to hear today. This man is not some crazed terrorist. He was never viewed as some radical with ties to terror organizations. The fact is, he is simply a normal Muslim man who followed the teachings of his religion of hate and death!

So you still think Islam is a “religion of peace?” Even before 9/11, I have tried my best to warn people about the false religion of Islam. Islam is a false religion dreamed up by a Mecca businessman named Muhammed 1400 years ago that has been spread from day one by hatred and death and has led the souls of those who followed its lies to the eternal flames of hell. It is the fastest growing religion in the world with nearly 2 billion people on the planet following the teachings of the Qu’ran, the book of fables Muhammed inspired that makes up the theology of this false religion. While Muslims like to claim they are a religion of love and peace, their teachings and actions over 1400 years continually prove they are about hatred and death.

Of course there will be Muslim apologists who say that these are only the extremists, just like they try to distance themselves from their brothers in this “peaceful religion” who flew the planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the one intended for the Capital building that was crashed in a Pennsylvania field by some real American heroes. Do you remember a few years ago when there was a cartoon in a Dutch newspaper depicting Muhammed with a bomb in his headdress? There were riots and people were actually killed over a CARTOON! Remember a year or so ago when Pope Benedict simply shared the historical fact that Islam was spread by violence and death and the Catholic churches that were burned down and the nuns killed by Muslims protesting his statements?

Do you remember the Islamic activist group CAIR that has ties to terrorist groups and operates in this country as an “advocacy group” for Muslims, and their 4 year campaign to take the Liveprayer TV program off this air for simply having the audacity to tell the truth about their false religion? After 1,175 programs and 4 1/2 yrs on the air, the gutless executives at CBS who owned the station we had broadcast on in Tampa since March of 2003 finally caved in to the intimidation and fear of this group. Over the years they had been successful in silencing other media personalities from saying anything negative about Islam, and I am certain, emboldened by their intimidation of CBS, is now doing all they can to take radio talk show host Michael Savage off the air.

These people are not about love or peace or unity. They are about one thing. Converting the world to their false religion and those who get in their way or who refuse to follow their lies will be silenced and killed. The word “Islam” literally means “submission.” Maybe you don’t understand what it means when their “holy book” says “death to all infidels.” An “infidel” by their definition is anyone who has not converted to their false beliefs. This is their book. These are their teachings. THIS IS WHAT ALL MUSLIMS BELIEVE!

That is why I was stunned the other day when I came across an article about many high profile Christian leaders who are forming some sort of alliance with top Muslim leaders. Jim Wallis, president of Sojourners, Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, Pastors Rick Warren of Saddleback and Bill Hybles of Willow Creek, and Robert E. Cooley, president emeritus of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, are just a few of the prominent Christians who have signed a letter issued by the Yale Center for Faith and Culture as a response to a letter signed last month by 138 representative Muslim leaders calling on the two Abrahamic faiths to love God and neighbors together.

Sounds nice doesn’t it? These Muslim clerics are not looking for love and peace, only mainstream acceptance! The very teachings of their false religion doesn’t call for this type of peace, only the DEATH of those who refuse to convert to their lies. I know these high profile Christians can’t be that stupid, so there has to be some other motivation. Sadly, I have documented for you in the past the key leaders who sold out in the 80s to Moon’s Unification Cult to give that lie from hell mainstream acceptance. Now, we have several very high profile prominent Christian leaders getting in bed with Muslim leaders!

Don’t these people read the Bible? The Bible says MUCH about who we associate with, about avoiding being associated with the wrong people. In Numbers 33:55, God warned Israel that bad associations would be a continual thorn in their side. In Exodus 34:12 and Ezra 9:14, Israel was specifically forbidden to develop relationships with ungodly nations. You can go all throughout the Bible and read God’s warnings and what He says about the type of relationships we enter into and those we associate with. That is why these ecumenical movements that seek to bring all the false religions and faiths of the world together as one is such a damnable lie. It is so damnable, in the final days there will be a One World Religion that all will be forced to be part of.

We are speeding toward an economic cliff because our government can’t practice restraint.

We spend so much more than we take in because politicians at every level use the public treasury to win elections. The public mostly accepts lavish promises of more and more federal spending because the cost of government has been so effectively divorced from what actually comes out of our paychecks.

Ask almost anyone how they did on their taxes and you’re likely to hear a happy exclamation that the taxpayer got a little money back! But ask the same person how much they paid the government over the year in withheld income and payroll taxes and you’ll often see a blank look.

When the money that government spends seems so unconnected to the money we earn it is easy for many to see government expenditures as “free money.” It’s not, but the engineered divorce in perception between the fruits of our labors and spending by elected officials has resulted in a national debt that equals more than $500,000 per American household. If not for accounting sleights-of-hand the national debt would be seen as much higher than even the shocking figure of more than $12 trillion.

In an interview with Sean Hannity on his ABC News radio show, Sarah Palin chastised President Obama for telling Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), during the health care summit, “the campaign is over.”

“Todd and I both saw that,” said Palin, “and we both said, you know, how arrogant for our president to say that.” She called McCain “an American war hero who has sacrificed so much,” arguing that for him “to be dissed like that on national television did not speak well for our president’s character.”

It was about as soft an interview as these exchanges can be. “I like it when you say common-sense conservatism,” said Hannity. “That, to me, means Reagan conservatism.”

Glenn Beck has failed to respond to a firestorm of reaction to his comments made during a February 21st interview with USA Weekend magazine in which he completely reversed his position on climate change by revealing that he believed in man-made global warming.

As we reported earlier this week, Beck appeared to stab his conservative audience in the back when he told USA Weekend magazine that man-made climate change was occurring in an article entitled Don’t judge Beck by his cover [2].

In the article, Beck tells interviewer Dennis McCafferty, “You’d be an idiot not to notice the temperature change.”

“He also says there’s a legit case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind,” writes McCafferty, under the sub headline, “He believes in global warming.”

“The blogosphere is on fire with reaction to McCafferty’s USA Weekend piece,” according to World Net Daily’s Chelsea Schilling [3], who pointed out that posters on the prominent conservative forum Free Republic were furious at Beck for seemingly performing a huge flip-flop on the issue.

“Seems like the rose-colored glasses are beginning to fall off those who used to view Mr. Beck with good approval?” wrote one.

    The reality is that outside of DC, Chicago, and a few states, gun registration is largely unknown in America, and Canada is moving to abolish their national gun registration system. The few states and cities that do have registration requirements are small, isolated islands in the sea of gun freedom that is America.

President Obama’s budget has added more than $100 billion in federal taxpayers’ money to what is called “education,” so that means it will be spent by alumni of the Saul Alinsky school of radical community organizing and/or the Chicago Democratic machine. We’re indebted to Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com for exposing the shocking use of some of these funds.

Obama is using the public schools to recruit a private army of high-schoolers to “build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda.” We now know Obama’s “agenda” is to move the U.S. into European-style socialism.

Obama’s Internet outreach during his campaign, Obama for America, has been renamed Organizing for America (OFA) in order to recruit students to join a cult of Obama and become activists for his goals.

Stirring It Up

Geller discovered that the teacher of an 11th-grade government class in Massillon, Ohio, passed out the sign-up sheet, headed with Obama’s “O” logo, asking students to become interns for Organizing for America.

LOWE’S EXPANDS SUPPORT OF THE MILITARY WITH YEAR-ROUND DISCOUNT

10 Percent Discount for Active, Reserve, Retired and Disabled Military Personnel

and Immediate Family Members

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Lowe’s Companies, Inc. announced today it will expand its support of the military by offering an all day, every day 10 percent discount to all military personnel who are active, reserve, retired or disabled veterans and their family members, with a valid, government-issued military ID card.

All other military veterans will receive the discount on the Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day weekends.

“Lowe’s was founded on the heels of World War II by veterans Jim Lowe and Carl Buchan and has always been a supporter of the military,” said Larry D. Stone, Lowe’s president and chief operating officer. “The year-round discount program is one way we are reaffirming our commitment to the thousands of men and women who are serving throughout the world, as well as their family members at home.”

The discount is available on in-stock and Special Order purchases up to $5,000. Excluded from the discount are sales via Lowes.com, previous sales, and purchases of services or gift cards.

While Lowe’s has had a military discount program in the past during select times of year, the new policy will allow those who are serving to benefit from the discount whenever they need it the most.

“What a great way to say thank you,” said Sloan Gibson, president and CEO of the USO. “We salute Lowe’s for the company’s commitment to helping military personnel and their families who served and continue to serve our nation.”

The USO was also selected as one of the beneficiaries of the Lowe’s Employee Giving Campaign in January. This initiative allows Lowe’s employees to donate directly from their paychecks to support those who are serving our country.

In addition to offering military discounts at specific times during the year, Lowe’s has extended benefits for its employees serving in the military and offers employment opportunities to military personnel after their military service has ended. Currently, more than 12,000 Lowe’s employees are military veterans or reservists.

Today, we take a look back at the Man in Black, who spoke with Terry Gross in 1997. Cash began recording albums and performing in the 1950s. His long romance with wife June Carter Cash, celebrated in the 2005 biopic Walk the Line, spanned five decades — from their early touring days to their rise as one of America’s most popular country-music couples.

Kucinich jeers: Congress is ‘complicit’ in violating Americans’ constitutional rights

Posted By admin On February 26, 2010 @ 5:03 am In Featured Stories | 11 Comments

Stephen C. Webster
Raw Story
Friday, February 26th, 2010

In the wake of congressional Democrats’ reauthorization and extension of the USA Patriot Act, few elected Democrats have been as vocal about the post-9/11 security measures as they were during the Bush administration.

Leave it to stalwart House progressive Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) to raise a rallying cry against what he called America’s love of its fears.

“This legislation extends three problematic provisions of the PATRIOT Act and, at the same time, leaves some of the most egregious provisions in place, absent any meaningful reform and debate,” he declared in a media advisory.

The specific provisions he cited are the Patriot Act’s powers to conduct roving wiretaps, conduct surveillance of people not thought to have any association with terrorism and tap into your personal records, such as library accounts.

Kucinich jeers: Congress is complicit in violating Americans  constitutional rights 190110banner4 [1]

The extensions were approved by Congress and sent to President Obama on Thursday, several days before the Patriot Act’s most nefarious portions were set to expire. President Obama had yet to sign the bill at time of this writing.

The Associated Press called the votes [2] a “political victory for Republicans.”
