Tangled Web

***The mishandling of Benghazi was done for political reasons, I am convinced. Victor Davis Hansen has a good piece about this over at The Corner at NRO.

Take the time to read it.

***Labor's sore losers. LOSERS is the operative word.

Sometimes the pro-union left just needs to take a chill pill and accept defeat; Tuesday, after Michigan passed its right-to-work laws, was one of those times.
Sure, the law — which ban mandatory union fees — deal a blow to labor in the heart of a traditional bastion: the industrial Midwest.
But the bills were passed by duly elected lawmakers and signed by a democratically empowered governor, Rick Snyder.
So is it too much to expect the unions to accept that outcome civilly? Nonviolently?
Apparently.
“There will be blood — there will be repercussions,” vowed state Democratic Rep. Douglas Geiss, as a vote on the bills neared.

Had a Tea Partier uttered those words, there would be horrified analysis by the talking heads. Now? Nothing. President Obama didn't help with his rabble rousing, either. Wouldn't it be nice to have a principled leader in the White House again?

***Obamacare layoffs looming. Oh, he'll blame the Republicans somehow...

Andre DiMino has been running medical device company ADM Tronics since his father, who founded the decades-old firm, died in 2001. He's never laid off anybody.
"These people are like family with us," he said.
The boss might not be able to hold out much longer. Come Jan. 1, an ObamaCare-tied tax specific to his industry is expected to go into effect. Though the Obama administration has downplayed the impact, DiMino calls it "devastating."
"I think after all of these decades of not laying people off, I think we may have to face that," DiMino told FoxNews.com. He predicted he might have to immediately lay off three people in his manufacturing division and possibly more after that.
DiMino, whose Bergen County, N.J., business currently employs 20 workers, is one of hundreds of CEOs across the country clamoring for Washington's attention, urging lawmakers to kill the tax before it kills jobs. 


***From Crosswalk.com:

Thankful for the Thorns
 
"Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong" (2 Cor. 12:10).
 
The literal translation of this verse gives a startling emphasis to it, and makes it speak for itself with a force that we have probably never realized. Here It is: "Therefore I take pleasure in being without strength, in insults, in being pinched, in being chased about, in being cooped up in a corner for Christ's sake; for when I am without strength, then am I dynamite."
 
Here is the secret of Divine all-sufficiency, to come to the end of everything in ourselves and in our circumstances. When we reach this place, we will stop asking for sympathy because of our hard situation or bad treatment, for we will recognize these things as the very conditions of our blessing, and we will turn from them to God and find in them a claim upon Him. --A. B. Simpson
