***What do Democrats really stand for? Jim Geraghty nails it.
For a while, it appeared that Democrats were organizing themselves around the principle that almost every dispute with every other nation and group can be resolved through “tough, smart diplomacy,” but now President Obama has started killing foreigners left and right and not too many Democrats complain at all. Obama even used a drone to kill an American citizen, Anwar al-Alwaki, with nary a peep. Don’t get me wrong, Alwaki had it coming, but this is precisely the sort of don’t-bother-me-with-legal-details-I’m-fighting-a-war philosophy that Democrats spent seven years denouncing.
You think the Democratic Party cares about wealth? Come on. In their minds, George Soros spending his money to help out his political views is noble, but the Koch Brothers are evil incarnate. Higher taxes are good, but no one will complain if Tim Geithner or Charlie Rangel cut corners on paying them. One might be tempted to argue that the righteousness of unions represent an inviolate principle to Democrats, but in New York, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trimming here and there and living to tell the tale.
No, the party really is about identity politics now; us vs. them. And everybody knows which side they’re on.
Read the whole piece. It's spot on.

We are paying him to be president, Soros and the other Enemies are paying him to destroy America. Duh, is that too hard to figure out.

***Now THAT'S what I call a pothole!!
Geez. Think this road'll be closed for a while?
Definitely an "Oh Crap!" moment:
***Everything you always wanted to know about honeybees. This really is interesting.
***Now THAT'S bad news for Obama: Obama's Job Approval Drops Below Carter's.
I think those two will be fighting it out for a long time for the title of "Worst President Ever."
***No hiring until 2012 - when Barack Obama is gone. That is the policy of one small business owner in Georgia - and probably several more who aren't publicizing it.
