“And I’m going to level with you: We don’t have that much time,” Ryan said, as the activists nodded. “But if we are serious, and smart, and we lead, we can do this.”
“So here we are, $16 trillion in debt and still [Obama] does nothing,” Ryan said. “They have no answer to this simple reality: We need to stop spending money we don’t have.”
“Obamacare comes to more than 2,000 pages of rules, mandates, taxes, fees, and fines that have no place in a free country,” Ryan said. “The president has declared that the debate over government-controlled health care is over. That will come as news to the millions of Americans who will elect Mitt Romney so we can repeal .”
“You are entitled to the clearest possible choice because the time for choosing is drawing near,” Ryan said near the end, his voice rising. “We will not try to replace our founding principles, we will reapply our founding principles. The work ahead will be hard. These times demand the best of us, all of us, but we can do this.”
***Navy SEAL talks to 60 minutes about his book detailing the bin Laden killing, "No Easy Day." I'm certainly going to Amazon.com to reserve my copy.
***Seniors suffer under Obama - where's the outcry?
I can answer that - buried in the editor's office. The lapdog Obamamedia is not going to tell the truth about his policies. Period.
***More government school idiocy. Deaf boy asked to change the way he signs his name because it looks like a finger pistol. They say it violates their "weapons in school" policy. I kid you not. Have you ever heard anything more ridiculous?
The parents of a 3-year-old deaf boy from Nebraska say his preschool told them he must change the way he signs his name because it looks like a finger-pistol, but the school says the family has their signals crossed.
The family of pre-schooler Hunter Spanjer said officials at the Grand Island Public Schools told them the manner in which the boy signs his name is a violation of its “weapons in school” policy. The claim they were told Hunter had to modify the way he signs his moniker to comply with the school's zero tolerance code against weapons in school.
“Anybody that I have talked to thinks this is absolutely ridiculous,” Hunter’s grandmother, Janet Logue, told KGIN. “This is not threatening in any way.”
Brian Spanjer, the boy’s father, said the sign is a registered symbol with the Signing Exact English system. The encouragement and support his family has received since reports of the controversy have surfaced has been “amazing,” he said.
Tell the truth about Obama, and you're either lying or a racist to these people.

Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.
