·       Food For Thought: Conundrum - Aaah!  Keeping The Confused, Confused.
The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.
Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:
1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century. – Author Unknown

·       Congressman Paul Gosar:  I've said all along that ObamaCare is a complete disaster. Now we've learned it’s so bad that Secretary Sebelius attempted to solicit donations from an industry that her department is supposed to regulate in order to persuade folks to sign up. The evidence couldn’t be more clear that ObamaCare just doesn’t work. It’s time for patient-centered, market-based health care reform along the lines of a bill I helped draft, the American Health Care Reform Act. Click HERE to read more.

Growing up in Wyoming and living in Arizona for most of my adult life has taught me that we must protect our environment while responsibly developing our natural resources. This is crucial to growing our economy and getting folks back to work, which is why I’ve called on President Obama to, among other things, approve the Keystone XL pipeline and end his administration’s war on energy.

·        Media-Lynchings-KKK-Like-Arm-Of Democrat-Party     I give no homage to President Lyndon Johnson because his ulterior motive was to establish a dependency, a welfare nanny-state mentality within the black community. As I have said, that is a form of insidious slavery that destroys the will, determination, and drive of the individual, and we see the results in the inner cities, especially the black community.

·        As-Democratic-Donors-Gather-In-Chicago-GOP-Takes-Aim  RNC Spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski :  “The Left’s Secret Club of progressives and big-dollar donors . . . will meet behind closed doors to discuss how they can further pull their party to the left. we’ll be using all of our resources to educate americans about the Democrat Party — a party that’s stalling the Keystone Pipeline and dozens of jobs bills in the senate because they are busy kissing the rings of Tom Steyer and big donors in Chicago. You can expect an array of tactics to show voters what the Democrat party talks about when they think no one is watching,” Kukowski said. Steyer, a billionaire, is using his fortune to craft plans to ensure Democrats make climate change a top political issue and is one of the expected speakers at the meeting. The RNC started plotting its strategy after politico’s Kenneth Vogel on Friday broke the story about the Chicago conference.
