Proposed U.S. Mid-East Policy: ‘Let Live or Let Die’

It’s time to change our Mid-East policy.

During the past decade U.S. taxpayers have been forced to spend TRILLION$ for overseas military and business ventures and most of us have little positive to show for it. However, wealthy profiteers and corporations have made billions on those ventures.

Counties suffering the most from job losses stand to receive the least help from President Barack Obama’s plan to spend billions of stimulus dollars on roads and bridges, an Associated Press analysis has found.

Obama’s one liners: where government biz and show biz intersect

I get it. I’d like to say I don’t but I do. The talk show pundits on a slow news week are filling time replaying President Obama’s Correspondent’s Dinner jokes and rating his "performance". He’s been getting everything from A pluses to C’s depending on what criteria the pundits use for rating him. This is about as relevant as a best and worst dressed debate comparing the actresses invited to "glam up" the event.
