I think Biden is pushing for the Nobel Peace Prize as we all know the criteria for that prize is to do absolutely nothing and to mystify and confuse the populous in doing so.
Past winners include:
Barack Obama (2009)
Al Gore (2007)
Mohamed ElBaradei and IAEA (2005)
Jimmy Carter (2002)
Kofi Annan and UN (2001)
Mikhail Gorbachev (1990)
Oh boy, another dumb democrat character. Is there an epidemic of Dumbness within the DNC or is Dumbness a prerequisite for a Democratic Party membership?
I got a copy of 'The American Community Survey' in the mail today. What a piece of work this is.
The Census Bureau says I am required by U.S. law to fill it out. It is a 28 page survey asking some 70 very personal questions about my family, my history, my home, my finances, my job, and every aspect of my life. This 2009 article explains all the questions in it (a must read):
I'm appalled at what they are asking. They want to know such things as when I leave for work, how long it takes for me to get there, how much money I make and where it comes from, all details of my home layout, and on and on. They even have a section asking about whether or not I was in the armed service and what all those details are (sounds like they are trying to track down the ex-military for who knows what).
I will not fill it out. I will take whatever penalty they throw at me and then sue. I was just curious as to whether anybody here has gotten this 'survey' and what the consensus is about it. I find it unconstitutional and am ready to fight to stop it.
My God nukeman, that is Orwellian, downright sinister. Thank you for the links. Apparently it's been around since before 2005, per the first link.
BTW Surprised they don't ask about number of guns in the household. Maybe that's coming...
Yes, I was surprised that was the one question they did not ask. However, they were inquiring all about military service record. I assumed they want to track and monitor all potential threats to their control and the 'MiketheMarines' of this world, as much as we appreciate him, are not liked so much by the new regime. They are the ones who have the training and expertise to man a citizen militia.
As to the Survey, I will not fill it out. I've heard that they will pursue me with numerous phone calls, and then visits, and then threats of prosecution as I continue to refuse to cooperate. We'll see how it turns out. I'll keep everyone posted, as I am going to fight this one all the way.
Two things I've found out about this since it came out in the early 2000's. One, they survey about 3 million people each year (250,000 random (?) people every month). And, two, there is a house bill (H.R. 931) in the works to change this survey into a voluntary participation. Time will tell on that one.
I read quite a few of those too, and the ones that amazed me the most were the ones that said, 'What's the problem? Just fill it out'. They had to be the ones that voted for Obama in '08.
Fingers crossed for HR 931 then. Reading the comments to the linked articles, quite a few people have managed to avoid filling it out, so good luck!
Would this be a good subject for a separate RS article, to get the word out?
Biden adds comedy relief to the regime's ticket. We face a future of bleak oppression. But through the gloom, one man can always make us laugh.
This is a great headline about Justice Scalia's reaction to having to read the Obamneycare Bill
Thanks sense - a good site too.
Seems 43 rep. senators wrote to 0bama yesterday about his missile defence open mic comments. Here's part of what they wrote:
Last year’s defense authorization bill, which was signed into law, limits the president’s ability to share classified missile defense data with Moscow. “We caution that any attempt to treat this provision as non-binding, as you claimed in your signing statement, could have serious repercussions,” the lawmakers said.
Are they getting some cojones at last? Maybe.
I don't know pm. Wouldn't it show more cajones just to charge dear leader with treason? But then again, maybe I'm just living in a dream world...
Exactly. Even though we know it would be blocked, it'd make my day to see someone in our government demand a hearing at least.
Good dream too, he's been ripe for the picking for so long. But someone noted elsewhere that the Senate would block a move toward treason, which they would.
Not that that should deter anyone from doing the right thing, if only for the optics and the satisfaction of millions of citizens.
Are you kidding - It makes Zero look like a HERO!
Almost wants me to wish Zero "a gezunt ahf dein kop"
That, my dear friend, is a very good question. It was a question why he chose him in the first place and I'm not sure it's ever been answered, at least not in my mind. At first I thought, as was proposed, that Biden had all this great, insightful knowledge of foreign affairs and he would negate the slam on Obama as being internationally sophomoric. But all that had to be done was to put him on a National stage and his lack of intelligence would soon become apparent.
Some have proposed, with a tinge of sarcasm, but I'm not sure, that he was being used as an assassination deterrent. Might be so. I'm thinking if the first scenario is correct Biden is history. If the second scenario is correct he might still be on the ticket.
While I will celebrate mightily the defeat of Obama in Nov., I'm going to kinda miss 'ol Joe BiteMe....he's a never ending guffaw provider. How does that man walk with both feet in his mouth?
Joe Biden, the gift that keeps on giving. I'm sure my dog if nominated as VP (although, he has issues about Mittens and how he treats dogs treatment of dogs...LOL) could outperform him in a debate.
Back to the OPEN MIC incident
I guess Putin got the message fron Obama
Pravda loves Obama
You can't make this stuff up!
All of us can laugh all we want but when they invent a time machine, Jester Joe and Tip over Hank Johnson are going to travel back to the days of Vaudeville and make a killing.
I want to add my "Like" to your scoop headlines too Scoop! And after reading many of the comments on this site for so long, I have to say- Scoopers and Scoopettes are the smartest, most caring, wittiest and in some cases most hilarious folks I've ever had the pleasure to read. Thanks you guys! :-D
Do we need a topic? It's been sunny & 80 here in Indy - A beer (or lemonade & Jeremiah Weed) with friends sounds pretty darn good for no reason at all. :)
