More Bull Shit From The Left and From Queer World

I have never watched Duck Dynasty, I don't pay for TV programing. But if a network is openly backing Fags, Queers and all the other Glaad freaks and then standing aginst the Bible it is really an easy thing for me...never watch the network. Easy !!! Boycott AETV is natural, unlike gay and lesbian people.

Duck season may soon be over for A&E.

The Robertson family released a statement late Thursday that raises doubts about the future of one of the most popular shows on cable television.

“We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm,” the Robertson family said in a prepared statement. “We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.”

The family said it has “spent much time in prayer” since learning A&E had suspended Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Louisiana family, over comments he made about his religious faith.

Robertson sparked a national debate on religion and tolerance in an interview with GQ magazine. The writer asked him what he considered to be sinful behavior.

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” Robertson said.

Then he paraphrased Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

The family defended Robertson’s comments and stressed that they are a “family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.”

“While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible,” the family said. “Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Phil would never incite or encourage hate.”

The family also criticized A&E for its actions, saying he was placed on hiatus “for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.”

Robertson’s comments drew immediate condemnation from gay rights groups who pressured the network to take action. On Wednesday, A&E announced Robertson was being removed from the show indefinitely.

"We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson's comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," the network said in a statement.

Our Government Say That "Wetback Mexicans" are more important than our Veterans.

***UPDATE*** 

The Senate voted to actually pass this legislation 64-36.  You can find the roll call for the final passage vote HERE.

Notably, three Republicans Senators (Alexander, Blunt, and Flake) voted no on final passage of this bill after having voted yes on ending debate.  This is the infamous tactic of being "for it before they were against it", but don't let these three fool you - they knew full well that voting for cloture allowed the Democrats to pass this bill with a simple majority.





Here are the nine little sheep dressed up in "Republican Wolf Clothing" but they really are Democrat tail wagging, rabid dogs.


The 9 Republicans who voted to give up the budget caps and raise taxes were:

Saxby Chambliss (GA)

Susan Collins (ME)

Orrin Hatch (UT)

John Hoeven (ND)

Johnny Isakson (GA)

Ron Johnson (WI)

John McCain (AZ)

Lisa Murkowski (AK)

Rob Portman (OH)





Look HERE to see how these nine nutless con-men vote with the Democrat Dogs.

Here Is The List Of Republican Traitors - AKA Democrats

From Freedom Works

The Senate voted today to end debate on the budget deal reached by Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA).  This tax-and-spend deal blows the top off of the budget caps set back in 2011, and raises taxes (or, if you prefer, fees), while claiming to reduce the deficit over ten years with mostly phony cuts that will likely never materialize. With the cloture vote passed, the Democrats can now pass this deal with a simple majority.

For a more detailed analysis of why this bill was a terrible idea, you can check out Julie Borowski's post HERE.  

In order to pass cloture (ending debate), which requires 60 votes, a number of Republicans needed to vote in favor of this latest spending surge.  Although a number of establishment Republicans wisely shied away from this deal (e.g. McConnell, Cornyn, Thune), twelve Republicans voted for cloture. The final vote was 67-33 - you can see the official roll call vote HERE.

The 12 Republicans who voted to give up the budget caps and raise taxes were:

Lamar Alexander (TN)

Roy Blunt (MO)

Saxby Chambliss (GA)

Susan Collins (ME)

Jeff Flake (AZ)

Orrin Hatch (UT)

John Hoeven (ND)

Johnny Isakson (GA)

Ron Johnson (WI)

John McCain (AZ)

Lisa Murkowski (AK)

Rob Portman (OH)

Some of these Republicans may vote against the final passage of the bill tomorrow and claim that they didn't support it, but as always anyone who votes for cloture knows that they are letting Harry Reid pass a bad bill with only Democrat votes. FreedomWorks has issued a Key Vote: NO on this budget deal, and we will score the cloture vote on our online Congressional scorecard.

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wiss., is a sellout and a fraud !!!!

Paul Ryan wants to take money away from Veterans and give money to illegal immigrants.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A top Republican senator is trying to undo cuts to military retiree benefits in the House-passed budget deal ahead of a crucial vote Tuesday morning in the Senate.

Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions filed an amendment late Monday to restore money that was cut from veteran and military retiree pension benefits by closing a loophole that allowed illegal immigrants to qualify for child tax credits.

His move comes after several GOP senators voiced complaints about the budget package, which sailed out of the House last week on a strong bipartisan vote.

Now it appears America's veterans and military retirees could be a determining factor in whether the deal makes it through the Senate.

Some Republicans say the plan unfairly forces veterans to pick up the cost of new spending. The provision generating heated opposition from Veterans of Foreign Wars and allied lawmakers would cut retirement benefits for military retirees by $6 billion over 10 years. 

"It's unacceptable to single out our men and women in uniform in this way," said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., who has already expressed her intention to vote against the proposed budget.

Democrats need to hold most of their caucus of 55 senators together and pick up a handful of GOP senators in order to reach the 60-vote threshold to advance the bill on Tuesday.

The prospect that the budget would clear the cloture hurdle brightened Monday, when three GOP senators -- Orrin Hatch of Utah and Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia -- announced that they would vote yes. A fourth, Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, expressed his support on Sunday. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona also said they would vote in favor of cloture last week. 

But unlike in the House, where Speaker John Boehner aggressively battled conservative groups trying to kill the bill, GOP leaders in the Senate are signaling opposition, or at least resistance, to the package.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has not said which way he will vote Tuesday, but he is widely expected to oppose the measure. Similarly, Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn of Texas announced his opposition Monday morning on his campaign's website -- a step his Senate office was unwilling to take. It was later deleted after reporters from The Associated Press asked for confirmation of a Cornyn quote that appeared on the Internet site Breitbart.com.

"Senator Cornyn opposes this budget deal because it breaks previously set spending caps and goes in the 'wrong direction' with regards to entitlement spending," according to the post. His Senate spokeswoman, Kate Martin, would only say that Cornyn would take "a close look" at the measure and is "concerned" that it reverses some of the spending cuts won in a hard-fought 2011 budget pact.

The third-highest ranking Republican in the Senate, conference chairman John Thune of South Dakota, announced Friday that he opposes the deal because it breaches spending caps put in place by a 2011 budget deal "and doesn't include meaningful spending reforms that address our debt and deficit." 

Ayotte, Sessions and other senators focused largely on the cuts to veterans and military retirees.

Sessions’ amendment would restore the funding by requiring applicants for a particular child tax credit to submit their Social Security numbers. Federal law bars illegal immigrants from collecting tax benefits but that particular tax credit is often claimed by undocumented residents, according to recent watchdog reports.

Sessions' office has estimated that closing the tax credit loophole would save the government approximately $4.2 billion, the amount the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration reported that illegal immigrants received due to the credit in 2010.

Congress faces a Jan. 15 deadline to pass a budget bill or risk another partial government shutdown. The debt-ceiling deadline is expected to hit sometime in February.

Need A Christmas Ham? Don't Buy "Smithfields" it is China Bull _hit!!!!


NEW YORK, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- The recent acquisition of Smithfield Foods, Inc., by Chinese food producer Shuanghui International has left many Americans feeling concerned about the future of food safety.
These feelings are heightened with the news that tainted dog treats from China have been linked to hundreds of animals dying from a mystery illness.

The purchase of Smithfield was the largest Chinese investment in a U.S. company, with the deal valued at $7 billion, including $4 billion in cash.

Shuanghui will now have access to food science secrets that were proprietary to Smithfield Foods. It can use this technology to directly impact competition with other U.S. food companies.

I spent seven years working in the food technology sector and I can attest that the proprietary technologies held by a respective company provide a strategic advantage over other companies in the industry. The genetics technology held by Smithfield Farms can be used by Shuanghui in China on its pigs, which would dramatically affect the export of U.S. pork to China, potentially decreasing it.

Smithfield officials have maintained that they made this deal to increase the export of U.S. pork to China. The company has been very demonstrative about this operational imperative in order to allay the fears of the American public that Chinese pork would be imported for use in the Smithfield product line.

However, Shuanghui is a huge conglomerate with several subsidiaries and is known throughout the food industry to have very loose management structure. In 2011, a Shuanghui subsidiary was caught putting a banned chemical into pig feed to make the animals leaner. It is this type of blatant sabotage of products and willingness of Chinese companies to cut corners that has U.S. consumers worried that will become the new order of business at Smithfield.

Chinese companies have brought tainted dry wall, pet food and other food products into the United States in recent years. This deal has caused many Americans to question food safety policies especially in companies with foreign ownership.

Many Americans called upon Congress and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States to block this purchase of Smithfield Foods. Congress admitted that they couldn't block the purchase of a U.S. company by a foreign entity unless it involved computers or national security.

Some members of Congress were so concerned about the Smithfield acquisition that they are discussing in the U.S. Senate whether food security could fall within the national security umbrella. If that dialogue has traction and the law is revised, then the Senate could potentially block future purchases by foreign entities.

The CFIUS reviewed and ultimately approved the transaction of Smithfield to Chinese ownership. Its decision raises the question: Is this the start of a trend where more Chinese companies are going to seek to obtain U.S. companies in the food industry?

That trend of Chinese involvement in the U.S. food industry could have drastic implications on food safety. In my experience with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, I have found that the agency is overrun with responsibilities so it relies on voluntary compliance and not inspections or other methods of enforcing the food safety standards.

The further involvement of Chinese food companies in the U.S. food marketplace also has the American public and the food industry concerned about the integrity of the supply chain. The Chinese reputation for degradation of products and disregard for the regulatory controls in the industry precedes them. The supply chain could very easily be compromised with more Chinese companies being integrated into the U.S. food industry.

Shuanghui maintains that it was interested in obtaining Smithfield Foods to meet increased demand for pork products in China. This increased demand is being driven by their rising middle class coupled with the trend in China to move away from vegetables and rice toward a diet of increased protein consumption.

Furthermore, Shuanghui has stated to the media that it needed to acquire a U.S. company with the technology to help them improve food safety in the pork products marketplace in China. The pork industry in China has had a number of very notable safety issues, including an incident in which dead pigs were dumped into a river near Shanghai.

Food technology and safety protocols used by Smithfield are going to be integral for Shuanghui to expand its capability to meet the rising demand for pork in China.

In the end, this deal could portend a future where China is forced to obtain other food companies in the United States and throughout the Western world because of the poor environmental conditions in China.

These conditions, along with the tremendous demand of an enormous population, will be the impetus for China to seek outside help via the purchase of Western companies. This trend will probably alienate China on the international stage but the Chinese don't have many other constructive pathways to address the issues in food safety that have plagued their country.

The U.S. public has to have a constructive dialogue and determine how we can implement government safeguards to insulate the U.S. food industry from involvement from Chinese investment and ownership in the future.

Brazil and New Zealand have safeguarded their agricultural systems from Chinese intervention and the United States has to consider similar safeguards. Our society and the future generations of Americans depend upon it.

Tybee Island fire chief's daughter saves fellow Coast Guardsman's life in Virginia

Seaman Stacy Sasser - by Skip Sasser.jpg




By Dash Coleman - Savannahnow.com

Seaman Stacy Sasser probably didn’t wake up Monday morning thinking she would save a co-worker’s life.

But when the 30-year-old Tybee Island native realized one of her fellow Coast Guardsmen had fallen unconscious into the water while walking onto a moored boat, she didn’t hesitate.

“She jumped into the water and literally saved his life,” said Coast Guard Lt. Anne Newton. “She got him face up so he could breathe again, and he started coughing up the water.”

David Blonn, a chef on Coast Guard Cutter Albacore, moored in Little Creek, Va., near Virginia Beach, was walking onto the vessel from the pier when he slipped, fell and hit his head, Newton said. The impact knocked Blonn out, and he rolled facedown into the water.

Sasser, who was on a neighboring vessel, heard the commotion, saw Blonn — who’s about twice her size — in the water and jumped in after him.

“The water was 50 degrees,” Newton said. “She jumped in between the cutter and the pier to get to him. It was dangerous. The one thing she cared about was trying to help him.

“She wasn’t wearing a drysuit or anything to protect her from the cold water. She just jumped in with what she had on.”

Once Sasser had Blonn’s face above the water, others were able to respond and pull him ashore. They began treating him for hypothermia and gave him oxygen before an ambulance arrived.

“She was extremely brave and heroic for doing that,” Newton said, adding that she is in the process of drafting an award for Sasser that she hopes will be approved soon.

Newton said Blonn, who is married and has four children, is being treated at a Virginia hospital.

Blonn, who also serves as a medic on his cutter, was himself honored recently for saving a person’s life through CPR and defibrillation, Newton said.

As for Sasser, she only joined the Coast Guard in June. Her father, Tybee Fire Chief Skip Sasser, said he’s proud.

“I can’t think of a better Christmas gift than saving a life, and especially of a father of four,” Skip Sasser said. “I’m very proud of my daughter, and she took the action needed when she saw somebody was in trouble without fear of her own personal injury.”





Way to go Seaman Sasser
