At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010.
Those records reflect a long-term trend accelerated by the recession and the federal stimulus program to counteract the downturn. The result is a major shift in the source of personal income from private wages to government programs.Economist Veronique de Rugy of the free-market Mercatus Center at George Mason University says the riots in Greece over cutting benefits to close a huge budget deficit are a warning about unsustainable income programs.
Economist David Henderson of the conservative Hoover Institution says a shift from private wages to government benefits saps the economy of dynamism. "People are paid for being rather than for producing," he says.

"This was a deliberative statement read from a Teleprompter that abdicated American exceptionalism, and replaced it with a misguided view of European dominance. A speech of this magnitude is not drafted on the plane ride over, and this line was carefully considered. This ladies and gentlemen, was the Obama White House in living color."
After Calderon was done chastising US policy, the Obama Administration did what they do best........they threw a party! But not just any party.
The East Room was a grand setting, and First Lady Michelle Obama brought in a favored Chicago chef to put together a complex and expensive menu. “The main course of Oregon wagyu beef came with a Oaxacan black mole sauce with more than 20 ingredients that takes days to come together,” reported the Associated Press.
Of course state dinners are supposed to be special. But where the Obama/Calderon affair really hit the heights was in the festivities after the dinner, which took place in a huge tent — the word “tent” doesn’t quite do it justice — set up on the South lawn. As the AP reported:
R&B diva Beyonce topped the entertainment bill for the dinner, taking place in the East Room of the White House, with the action later moving to a luxury marquee on the South Lawn (South Lawn? Maybe it should be South Beach!) of the presidential mansion. The marquee, the size of two-thirds of a football field, decked out in elaborate black decor and nightclub-style lighting, featured a stage and baskets of flowers and models of Monarch butterflies dangling from the ceiling.

Bottom line: If you're on the left and you want to attack something, just reach into the old, worn-out play book and drop the discrimination/racist card.

"SET OFF A DEBATE" YA THINK!
Not that this piece of $hit didn't 'have it comin', but this administration has been arguing from day 1 that terrorist, known terrorists, should be brought to the US where they are to be tried with all rights awarded by law. But this guy is a US citizen and the administration 'rubs him out'!!!
Oh wait, the argument is that it was done by a drone missile, so that's the controversy. WTF!
Catch him and water-board him!
Drop a missile on his ass from 20,000 ft.
NO PROBLEM THERE!
Now think for one moment how this would unfold if the terrorist attacks that took place were carried out by Right-Wing, anti-Castro Cubans? Miami today would be cordoned-off and house-to-house searched would be well underway!!

LA City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, who proposed the approved city boycott of Arizona over its new immigration law, says she's sending a checklist of items for Lakers players to bring on road trips to Arizona so they don't end up spending one cent in the Valley of the Sun.
"Councilwoman Hahn is confident that the Lakers are only going to need two trips to Arizona to sweep the series," Michael Trujillo, the manager of her campaign for Lieutenant Governor, told the LA Weekly. "Furthermore she will be sending a checklist of items for each Lakers player to bring so they won't need to purchase anything while in Arizona."
Eh, Mr. Trujillo. If the Lakers sweep, they'll only have to make 1 trip! IDIOT!
The public broadly supports a new Arizona law aimed at dealing with illegal immigration and the law’s provisions giving police increased powers to stop and detain people who are suspected of being in the country illegally. Fully 73% say they approve of requiring people to produce documents verifying their legal status if police ask for them. Two-thirds (67%) approve of allowing police to detain anyone who cannot verify their legal status, while 62% approve of allowing police to question people they think may be in the country illegally.
In the current survey, 76% of Republicans disapprove of Obama’s handling of immigration policy, while just 8% approve. Independents disapprove of Obama’s job on the issue by more than two-to-one (57% to 25%). Even among Democrats, as many disapprove (38%) as approve (37%) of the way he is handling the issue, while a quarter (25%) offer no opinion.
Ponder for one minute what the Obama/Liberal Democrat position on illegal immigration would be if the illegals were potential Republican/Conservative voters.

The congressman is the first U.S. House incumbent to be ousted this spring primary season amid widespread anti-incumbent sentiment. The same unrest helped end the 17-year career of Utah Republican Sen. Bob Bennett, who lost a GOP convention on Saturday.
State Sen. Michael Oliverio carried 56 percent of the vote to Mollohan's 44 percent Tuesday night after an aggressive campaign that questioned the incumbent's ethics and support for issues including federal health care reform.
"We announced our campaign 100 days ago, and in 100 days' time our country has fallen one-third of a trillion dollars further into debt," Oliverio said. "We have to get the country's financial house in order, and that's what we're committed to doing."

and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace
those who preach god, need god
those who preach peace do not have peace
those who preach peace do not have love
beware the preachers
beware the knowers
beware those who are always reading books
beware those who either detest poverty
or are proud of it
beware those quick to praise
for they need praise in return
beware those who are quick to censor
they are afraid of what they do not know
beware those who seek constant crowds for
they are nothing alone
beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average
but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
to kill anybody
not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude
they will attempt to destroy anything
that differs from their own
not being able to create art
they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators
only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully
they will believe your love incomplete
and then they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect
like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
their finest art

The U.S. economy in April added jobs at the fastest pace in four years, but the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose.
Economists polled by Dow Jones Newswires were expecting payrolls to rise by 180,000. The March figure was originally reported as a 162,000 increase.
Taking into account revisions to prior months, the U.S. economy added an average of 143,000 jobs a month in the first four months of the year, which may fuel optimism about the job market's recovery.
However, as a reminder of the labor market's continued weakness, the unemployment rate increased to 9.9% last month. Economists were expecting it to remain at March's 9.7% level.
Yep! We don't want to get too optimistic about that unemployment number rising to 9.9%!!
Oh, and in further encouraging news, there is THIS.
I HAVE A QUESTION: I wonder what % of those 162,000 new jobs are GOVERNMENT JOBS? Just wondering.....................

So how was he able to board the Emirates Airlines flight to Dubai?
“It takes a few hours for the airlines system to catch up,” a senior administration official tells ABC news.
Another senior administration official adds that Emirates refreshes their system to update with US intelligence information periodically – but not frequently.
In any case, the first official says that airlines were “within minutes” of Shahzad being put on the no-fly list told to “look at a web-board” and manually check its passenger manifest against the news on the web board.
“That appears to not have happened” the official says. “For whatever reason there was a breakdown at the Emirates level.”
Oh ok, it was Air Emirates fault the guy got on the plane.................

NEW YORK — Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged “immodest.”Just days after Iran abandoned a high-profile bid for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, it began a covert campaign to claim a seat on the Commission on the Status of Women, which is “dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women,”
NOW wasn't available for comment, but they are suing WalMart for gender inequality. After all, we must prioritize!
