Spending more will never be the solution to our problems. Every down turn spiral points to our government's careless spending beyond our means, politicians don't really look at cutting spending. Raising taxes to the rich or the middle class will never solve the ever increasing deficit. Our government spends estimated about six million dollars per minute, just do the math for each hour, each day, each month, and each year, when are we going to wake up?Spending more will never be the solution to our problems.

The Penn State child rape scandal/coverup is a matter of Homeland Security (see Franklin Coverup)
In an exclusive interview with ESPNWilliamsport.com former Press Secretary for Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Chuck Ardo stated that in conversations he has had with high ranking officials with knowledge of the situation at Penn State “Tom Ridge would be welcomed as the leading candidate” (to replace outgoing PSU President Graham Spanier).
Within the state of Pennsylvania and nationally Ridge is well respected for his work not only as a Governor but as the first Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Spanier will either retire or be fired as early as this afternoon. Current Governor Tom Corbett is currently traveling and is expected to be in State College as early as this afternoon to meet with the Board of Trustees at Penn State.
Once it is announced that Spanier is no longer PSU President, it is believed that the Honorable Tom Ridge will be appointed acting President of Penn State University by Governor Corbett. The appointment must also be ratified by the Board of Trustees at Penn State. Additional sources have shared with ESPNWilliamsport.com that the move to install Ridge will be greeted with overwhelming support.

American universities are reportedly using endowment funds to buy and lease vast tracts of African farmland, often for piddling prices, in deals that will reward foreign investors handsomely while separating tens of thousands from their homes and farms and providing little or none of the economic benefits promised them, California researchers say.

Wikipedia defines false or black flags as "covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities."
They're "big lies," defined by Merriam-Webster as "deliberate gross distortion(s) of the truth used especially as a propaganda tactic."
America's decade from September 11, 2001 to May 1, 2011 was punctuated by the (big) lie of our time and (big) lie of the moment.
Put another way, the official stories are falsified, myths, widely believed fantasies contrary to reality.
With or without bin Laden, bogymen threats are plentiful. Since WW II alone, America's had numerous ones, including communists, Al Qaeda, WMDs, the Taliban, Gaddafi, and a host others yet unnamed, as well as numerous "foiled" domestic ones.
Among others, they include:
a fake shoe bomber;
fake underwear bomber;
fake Times Square bomber;
an earlier one there;
fake shampoo bombers;
fake Al Qaeda woman planning fake mass casualty attacks on New York landmarks;
fake Oregon bomber;
fake armed forces recruiting station bomber;
fake synagogue bombers;
fake Chicago Sears Tower bombers;
fake FBI and other building bombers;
fake National Guard, Fort Dix and Quantico marine base attackers;
fake 9/11 bombers; and
others to enlist public support for the fake war on terror and very real ones it spawned.Wikipedia defines false or black flags as "covert operations designed to deceive... more

A non-eligible candidate IITian Udayakumar Dharmalingam was unfairly short listed as one of the top five finalists in the contest for the selection of the Indian Rupee Symbol and later on declared as winner.
But RTI ( Right To Information) had already exposed that he is Non-eligible candidate for Indian Rupee Symbol Design Competition as he had violated the Indian Rupee Symbol Design competition guidelines .
According to guidelines one candidate could send maximum two design entries but he had submitted a total of four designs.
Second violation of guideline is the symbol itself, as it's not applicable to standard keyboard or Unicode enable.
Violations are not stopping here according to information and broadcasting minister Ambika Soni "The new rupee symbol partially resembles the Devanagri ‘Ra’ and Roman capital ‘R’ without the stem coupled with two parallel lines – in line with Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s vision for a symbol which reflects and captures Indian ethos and culture."
But using roman script/English alphabet in designing the New Indian rupee symbol is also a violation of guideline according to the guideline "The symbol had to be in the Indian National Language Script".
But according to National language Script English is not included in that list till this date.A non-eligible candidate IITian Udayakumar Dharmalingam was unfairly short listed as... more

The House has voted to repeal the 1993 law known as "don't ask, don't tell" and allow gays to serve openly in the military.
The House vote Thursday came several hours after the Senate Armed Services Committee took the same course and approved a measure repealing the policy that prohibits service by gays who openly acknowledge their sexual orientation.
The House was a victory for President Barack Obama, who has pushed for a change in military policy, and for gay rights group who have made an end to "don't ask, don't tell" their top legislative priority.
Republicans voted overwhelmingly against lifting the ban, saying Congress should wait until the Pentagon completes a review of the impact of a repeal on military life and readiness.http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5grHLcTA5VMaxM1KPtvrf3OTOfZuQD9FVIBC82... more
A two-pronged war against wild horses is under way and at this moment the country’s great icon of freedom is losing.
One front in this war involves agencies tasked with wild horse management, primarily the Bureau of Land Management. It recently carried out a mandated although deadly mustang roundup in Nevada during which foals were harried by helicopter over rough terrain until their hooves apparently fell off and other horses later died of stress and exhaustion.
The other front involves lone operators who venture into the wilderness and kill wild horses—which is illegal, although arrests are rarely made and when they are, the cases often fall apart

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can alway More..s be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country"

Honduras has threatened to revoke Brazil's right to a diplomatic mission in a dispute over the status of ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya.
Mr Zelaya took refuge in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa after sneaking into the country on Monday, three months after he was sent into exile.
Honduras's interim government has given Brazil 10 days to either grant Mr Zelaya asylum or hand him over.
The government says it has no intention of raiding Brazil's embassy.
Speaking to reporters in Tegucigalpa on Sunday, interim Honduran Foreign Minister Carlos Lopez said: "If the status of Zelaya is not [resolved] within 10 days, the [Brazilian] embassy will lose its diplomatic condition."
Brazil had earlier refused to said it would not comply with a demand from Honduras to "define the status" of Mr Zelaya's status.
Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said the embassy was protected by international law.
Mr Zelaya faces a number of charges if handed over, including treason.
The UN Security Council has called on the Honduras interim government to "cease harassing" the Brazilian embassy.
Hundreds of police and soldiers have surrounded the building.
Meanwhile, the interim government denied entry to a group of four diplomats seeking to mediate in the crisis.
The group, some of whom were representatives of the Organization of American States (OAS), had been sent to lay the groundwork for mediation efforts between the two sides.
The OAS suspended Honduras in July after Mr Zelaya was ousted, and government spokesman Rene Zapeda told the Associated Pres the diplomats' visas were revoked in retaliation for this.
Mr Zelaya was forced out at gunpoint at the end of June, after he announced plans to hold a non-binding public consultation to ask people whether they supported moves to change the constitution.
His opponents said the move was unconstitutional and was aimed at removing the current one-term limit on serving as president, so paving the way for Mr Zelaya's possible re-election. He has denied this.
