BACK THE PACK?
The rabid response to punish everyone in the state of Indiana for a new religious freedom law is astounding. The law probably needs tweaking, but it isn't anti-gay...it's pro-religious in a limited circumstance. I have no strong feelings either way about the law...but I feel strongly about 2 things here:

1) I work with people in Indiana. I have good friends who live there. The Hoosiers I know are some of the most generous and good-hearted people I've met. They wouldn't stand for the kind of anti-gay behavior that liberals claim this new law supports.

2) Those who are so quick to join the pack mentality and punish people who don't share their beliefs need to take a long look in the mirror. The brashness and bullying of those like Charles Barkley, the Washington gov and Seattle mayor is surprising, if tolerance is truly their guiding principle. There's a better way to handle this, if the goal is to truly get along and respect one another's POV.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is banning taxpayer-funded business travel to Indiana in response to the state’s new religious-freedom law, amid criticism about the legislation having the potential to discriminate against gays and others.

You're exactly right, +Theodore Barkley. The left is "smarter than the rest of us." They know what's good for us.  #Compliance #1984

THIS is one reason why I don't trust Wikipedia. 
h/t to +Kevin Woolcock 
 
Despite the steady wave of scandals that have begun to erode even the New York Times’ portrayal of Hillary Clinton, her image remains unblemished on Wikipedia. Since he first started editing her page in June 2005, Hillary’s “Wikipedia watchdog" has been guarding against slanders, accusations, unfair assumptions, and distortions on the high-traffic, heavily footnoted, highly policed Hillary Rodham Clinton Wikipedia page.    #OrwellianWiki
Unlike most Wikipedia editors, who prefer to remain anonymous, "Wasted Time R" has no problem giving his real name: Jonathan Schilling. Leading up to Hillary’s failed bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, Schilling’s significant role in the shaping of the image of the former first lady was the subject of several interviews and articles, including pieces by NPR, BBC, Canadian Radio, and New Republic.
"I figure if you're going to be doing this ... you might as well own up to who you are," Schilling said. #AmericanPropaganda  
In a piece on the wiki pages of Hillary and Obama, New Republic's Eve Fairbanks described Schilling as “the man who protects Hillary's online self from the public's hatred.” His dedication to the unofficial job is stunning: he estimated in 2008 that he spent 15 hours a week editing, with most of that, as Fairbanks says, “standing watch over Hillary’s page.”

ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL SPEECHES about America, Land of Opportunity I've heard since Ronald Reagan. I probably won't be voting for Ted Cruz, but he's a brilliant orator (speaks WITHOUT a teleprompter) who understands the meaning of freedom and liberty. He "gets" America in a way few politicians today do.

Worth your time, even if you won't be voting for him. #Imagine  #TedCruz  #America

It is a shame that the media is so dishonest.  The Republican phonies like McCain are complicit too.  There has been virtually no honest coverage of Cruz in the mainstream liberal media - like scaring the child in NH or the total lie that Cruz was the "architect of  the government shut down".  I guess this is as complicated as science to the left.

Cruz stands up for the rule of law and gets the blame for the anti-American left (McCain included) who's actions being protested are in violation of the constitution.  Why does the law apply to us and not the Federal Government?

Why do people continue to watch news organizations who are repeatedly caught in lies or deception.  Most of the left is willingly misinformed.  The rest are misinforming.

Liars and suckers.

North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea and vowed "merciless" retaliation Monday as the US and South Korea kicked off joint military drills denounced by Pyongyang as recklessly confrontational. The annual exercises always trigger a surge in military tensions and warlike rhetoric on the divided peninsula, and analysts saw the North's missile tests as a prelude to a concerted campaign of sabre-rattling.

Here's who I'm supporting for President in 2016.

Republicans have a deep bench of qualified candidates, but Carly stands above them all IMO. Watch this video and see if you agree. ‪#‎Carly2016‬

Carly didn't run for governor.  That was Meg Whitman.  Carly ran for the senate.

 OBAMA'S PROMISES


2008 Obama said he’d give the middle class money. 

And the people said “Yeah. Bring it on!” And they voted for him.

2012 Obama promised more stuff—free phones, health care, and money from the fat cats and he spoke so well from the teleprompter that the people believed him. And they said, ‘Yeah. Bring it on!” 

And they voted for him again.

2015 Obama promised more stuff—free college and money from the government for work or no work and for children and to buy houses that people couldn’t afford. Obama said, “Don’t worry, I’ll get the money from the fat cats.”

And Fox said, “There’s not enough money for all those freebies.”

And MSNBC said, “That’s a lie.”And Fox said, “No it’s not. There won’t be any jobs when there are no companies to pay the taxes.

And CNN said, “That’s a lie.”

And Obama said, “I’ll tax the fat cats some more.”

And the people said, “Yeah. Bring it on!”

And then there were no more corporations, no employment, no one to tax to pay for the freebies.

Obama said, “That’s okay. Don’t worry.”

But there was no MSNBC and no CNN to chorus his words and the people were sore angry but it was too late.

And Obama looked around and saw that everyone was equally poor, and he saw that it was good.

I'd forgotten how many scandals Hillary was involved in BEFORE this latest email obstruction of justice. Amazing how popular she is, given the laundry list of ethics (and legal) violations. Are we a country of ostriches? 

Seriously...can't our first female President be someone we can actual ADMIRE for something more than not having a Y chromosome? #Carly2016

What's more scandalous?  A or B?

A) Hillary covering her tracks and wiping her personal email server clean after State Dept. starts requesting public records.
B) Nobody holding Hillary accountable for violating federal law.

“While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department.”

A is terrible because it shows that we as a society are currently unwilling to be aware or involved enough to hold politicians accountable. We will elect anyone who promises us more "free" stuff. While on the surface, A appears less bad because it is only one individual and not all of politics, it is actually more representative of the underlying causes.

B is terrible because it highlights that these problems are institutional in our politics and the individuals are merely symptoms of the larger problem. We have failed so badly and so long to hold individual politicians accountable that they have built the entire system around the assumption that they are immune to concepts of accountability.

In considering both, they are both worse than the average person seems to realize, but I think A is more representative of the root causes. We have to hold each and every politician fully accountable. If we try to hold the "institution" of politics accountable, the accountability becomes so diffused that nobody ever actually takes blame for their actions.

Obama's in love with the idea of compelling people to do things.
MUST buy healthcare. MUST vote. 
Does he understand the meaning of the word FREEDOM?  #BigBrother

President Obama is floating the idea of making it mandatory to vote in the United States.

+Tim Counts​​ While you're so busy distinguishing, work on "poles" vs. "polls" and "split blood" and "spilled blood".

As for 52 states...maybe you should stop right now. Obama told you there's 57, right?

After being so snotty about cable, a little time at NatGeo might not hurt.

We do hope they didn't register everyone in Oregon, because not everyone is entitled to vote.

“I’m not quite sure when we became a nation that believed that only professional politicians could run for office. It’s not how we were founded. Ours was intended to be a citizen government.”

What kind of person watches a human being be BURNED ALIVE by ISIS, and turns around to tell Christians not to get on their "high horse" because "terrible deeds were done in the name of Christ."??

Are you freaking kidding me?? Obama can't call this evil out...and reverts to events of a thousand years ago to denounce Christians? At a prayer breakfast?? Appalling in the extreme.

It sad, and depressing. I can't not understand why he has people that still stand by him. He himself is not frightening, its the amount of people that agree with him that scares me. I can not figure out why.

He should be forging a coalition with the likes of Jordon, Israel, France, and any other country that is Muslum, chriatian, buddist or Atheist, it doesnt matter this evil will kill all of them if given the chance. We can to beat back this savage evil and make an example to other would be savages that they are next if the continue this barbaric slaughter of innocence of all races and religions. All we need if leadership that has the spine, conviction and resolve to deal with the savages.

I was impressed with the amount of time Jeff Garell and Daniel Sands at Silversage Advisors spent with me when discussing my wealth management and financial planning needs. I am by no means a "big account", but I could tell they took my financial future seriously...and the accounts I have under their management have done quite well over the past couple of years. They understand the importance of linking financial planning with your life goals...it goes well beyond money management, and I'm grateful they've opened my eyes to lots of other facets in protecting my wealth (and my family). A great firm whose principals (and principles) I admire!

Brian Lessinger helped my brother purchase a short-sale property in record time. He really knows the ins and outs of these complex transactions and made it easy. Knowing what price to offer is a bit tricky in our market, but Brian had a lot of research through RE/MAX that really helped. I HIGHLY recommend Brian Lessinger -- his integrity and knowledge of the process was terrific, and my brother loves the house Brian helped him find.
