Ryan is honest, straightforward, sincere; Controversial billboard; An America where prosperity is shared; Muslim Brotherhood holds power in Egypt; Biden says Republicans would "put y'all back in chains"; Why is National Weather Service buying 46,000 rounds of ammo?; "Take your campaign of division and hate back to Chicago"; No arrests for New Black Panther threat against Republicans; How did Harry Reid become so rich?; You'll have trouble finding a doctor; Democrat dedicated to supporting Muslim candidates; Don't ask about Simpson-Bowles; Former Special Forces and U.S. Intelligence launch ad scolding Obama for security leaks which endanger American lives

The following clip would make a nice 30-second ad:  [This is Erskin Bowles, former Clinton Chief of Staff speaking]:
“Have any of you all met Paul Ryan? We should get him to come to the university. I’m telling you this guy is amazing. ... He is honest, he is straightforward, he is sincere. And the budget that he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible, straightforward, serious budget and it cut the budget deficit just like we did, by $4 trillion. … The president as you remember, came out with a budget and I don’t think anybody took that budget very seriously. The Senate voted against it 97 to nothing."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A controversial billboard in Elkhart has been drawing a lot of attention-- both negative and positive this month.
But Monday, protesters gathered at the billboard to argue its message.
The billboard, paid for by a tea party group called "We the People of Marshall and Fulton County",  is posted near Nappanee Street and John Weaver Parkway in Elkhart.
It says: "The Navy Seals removed one threat to America. The voters must remove the other.",0,6088709.story?track=rss

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- President Obama touted his new vision of America as one where "prosperity is shared" at a campaign stop in Chicago. We've got news for him: Prosperity is always shared. The real question is whether it's created at all.
From Obama's 2008 lecture to small business owner "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher to "share the wealth" to his more recent "you didn't build that" admonishment to entrepreneurs, President Obama's call for an "America in which prosperity is shared" is a declaration of war on wealth creators, capitalism, rule of law and prosperity itself, all in the name of "sharing."
It pretty well makes his vision for America not so much a land of opportunity, but a land of redistribution.
Take, for example, the matter of revelations by five members of the Congress and the Center for Security Policy that there appear to be a number individuals working for or with the Obama administration with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The possibility that their influence may be helping to shape U.S. policy in ways that increasingly align it with the demands, ambitions and goals of the Brotherhood and other Islamists is a national security problem of the first order. That is especially true at a moment when the Muslim Brotherhood is consolidating its hold on power in Egypt with the cashiering of two top generals at the hands of theBrotherhood's newly elected president, Mohammed Morsi.
Yet, Team Obama and its allies in the mainstream media have aggressively worked to deflect the focus away from these realities.
Vice President Joe Biden told supporters that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains,” during a campaign speech Tuesday in Danville, Va.
Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter says the campaign has "no problem" with Vice President Joe Biden's comment about putting people back in chains.

"I think he probably agrees with Joe Biden's sentiments," Cutter said on behalf of President Obama. "He's using a metaphor to talk about what's going to happen."
Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.
A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.
A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey.
Mitt Romney used a tough new campaign speech to personally blast the Obama campaign on Tuesday, saying comments earlier in the day from Vice President Biden are "what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like."
"Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago," Romney said while campaigning in Ohio
Romney was responding to Biden's suggestion that the GOP ticket's economic policies would “put y’all back in chains."

New Black Panthers to RNC: Our 'Feet Will Be On Your Motherf***ing Necks'  [Where are the arrests?  Didn't Joe Biden just play into their hands?]


Try this thought experiment. Imagine that someone grows up in poverty, works his way through law school by holding the night shift as a Capitol Hill policeman, and spends all but two years of his career as a public servant. Now imagine that this person’s current salary — and he’s at the top of his game — is $193,400. You probably wouldn’t expect him to have millions in stocks, bonds, and real estate.
But, surprise, he does, if he’s our Senate majority leader, whose net worth is between 3 and 10 million dollars, according to When Harry Reid entered the Nevada legislature in 1982, his net worth was listed as between $1 million and $1.5 million “or more,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. So, since inquiring minds inquire, let’s try to figure out how Reid’s career in public service ended up being so lucrative. He hasn’t released his tax returns, which makes this an imperfect science, but looking at a few of his investments helps to show how he amassed his wealth.
Are you having trouble finding a doctor who will see you? If not, give it another year and a half. A doctor shortage is on its way.
Most provisions of the Obama health law kick in on Jan. 1, 2014. Within the decade after that, an additional 30 million people are expected to acquire health plans—and if the economic studies are correct, they will try to double their use of the health-care system.
Here is the problem: The health-care system can't possibly deliver on the huge increase in demand for primary-care services. The original ObamaCare bill actually had a line item for increased doctor training. But this provision was zeroed out before passage, probably to keep down the cost of health reform. The result will be gridlock.
A Democratic Party caucus chairman who has speculated about Jewish involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks has launched a new political action committee dedicated to supporting “anti-Zionist” Muslim candidates who believe “the ‘war on terror’ is a hoax and that the official story of 9/11 is not true,” according to the group’s website.
MD Rabbi Alam is an Obama campaign ally and Missouri-based Democratic activist who came under fire in July after he told the Free Beacon that “not a single Jew” was killed during the 9/11 attacks. (Alam is not a rabbi.)
A veteran Democrat, Alam lost a bid last week to become his party’s nominee for Missouri’s next secretary of state. However, his conspiratorial views about 9/11 and the Jewish people continue to garner the most attention.
Some Democratic lawmakers want to make sure that one question does not get asked at the upcoming first presidential debate - about Simpson-Bowles.
Three Democratic House members objected Tuesday to a request by four senators that President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney be asked which of the commission’s proposals to address the debt they support. The Democrats said such a question would force “candidates to choose solutions from one menu of options.”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------A group of former U.S. intelligence and Special Forces operatives is set to launch a media campaign, including TV ads, that scolds President Barack Obama for taking credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden and argues that high-level leaks are endangering American lives.
Leaders of the group, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc, say it is nonpartisan and unconnected to any political party or presidential campaign. It is registered as a so-called social welfare group, which means its primary purpose is to further the common good and its political activities should be secondary.
