WASHINGTON — Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn warns there could be not only a political firestorm but acts of civil disobedience and even violence in reaction to President Obama's executive order on immigration Thursday.
"The country's going to go nuts, because they're going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it's going to be a very serious situation," Coburn said on Capital Download. "You're going to see — hopefully not — but you could see instances of anarchy. ... You could see violence."
Coburn, 66, is a conservative Republican but one who has a personal relationship with Obama. They entered the Senate in the same class, elected in 2004, and the new senators from opposite ends of the political spectrum and their spouses immediately hit it off at an orientation dinner. Last year, the president wrote a tribute in Time magazine to Coburn as "someone who speaks his mind (and) sticks to his principles."

Often times the officer was aware the driver had been drinking or had committed a traffic violation, but allowed the drivers to leave without a ticket, after unzipping his pants and exposing himself.
Ever wonder which states are paying and which are receiving US taxes? Here is a list of the top ten states on the receiving end.
Personally I think Puerto Rico should have been listed as well, even though it is not officially a state. They pay no taxes and receive all sorts of benefits.
Return on Taxpayer Investment: $3.07
Funding as Percentage of Revenue: 45.8 percent
Federal Employees Per Capita: 8.67

It’s often cited that the dollar has lost 95-98% of its value since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913. While Fed policies have contributed to the devaluation of the dollar over the past 100 years, two U.S. Presidents did more in single actions to debase the dollar than the Fed ever did.

When the typically liberal Washington Post is questioning your use of Executive Orders to further highly controversial political plans, and warns that you’re pushing past any previous presidential precedent (how about that alliteration?!), maybe you should take a step back and reconsider.
President Obama’s expected action lifting the threat of deportation from millions of undocumented immigrants, which could come as early as this week, will expand the authority of the executive branch into murky, uncharted territory.
Someone should get Bloomberg and Gates on Israel real quick so they can change the obvious flaw in thinking!
Israel is to ease controls on carrying weapons for self-defence in the wake of a deadly Palestinian attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said on Tuesday.
"Over the last 50 years, tireless researchers have uncovered and revealed the existence of various elites that control governments and populations:
Banks, super-banks, the military-industrial complex, intelligence agencies, psyop propagandists, Wall Street, and so forth and so on.
For some reason, these researchers, many of them, have a blind spot when it comes to the ongoing operations of a shadow medical government."
Central Banks have descended into(further) madness.
The Bank of Japan is buying just about every bond issued by the Japanese government and now the European Central Bank is contemplating buying gold and other assets to fight deflation!
The Spirit of Sauntering: Thoreau on the Art of Walking and the Perils of a Sedentary Lifestyle
By: Maria Popova
Why “every walk is a sort of crusade.”
“Go out and walk. That is the glory of life,” Maira Kalman exhorted in her glorious visual memoir. A century and a half earlier, another remarkable mind made a beautiful and timeless case for that basic, infinitely rewarding, yet presently endangered human activity.
Henry David Thoreau was a man of extraordinary wisdom on everything from optimism to the true meaning of “success” to the creative benefits of keeping a diary to the greatest gift of growing old. In his 1861 treatise Walking, penned seven years after Walden, he sets out to remind us of how that primal act of mobility connects us with our essential wildness, that spring of spiritual vitality methodically dried up by our sedentary civilization.
