The government finished the official U.S. cyber security report just two weeks ago. Five days ago, President Barack Obama decided the country needed a cyber czar as a first step to our security. Today we find out the government posted a 266-page list of U.S. nuclear sites on the Internet. Which provided anyone with a connection plenty of U.S. nuclear information and since it was not encrypted either anyone could read the sensitive information. The administration was quick to point out the document contained no classified material about nuclear weapons. They just had all the locations and details in one handy document. This is a compilation of hundreds of civilian nuclear sites, maps, and details of the facilities. The material includes sites for uranium storage, nuclear fuel fabrication plants, and nuclear research facilities. The document was stamped highly confidential safeguards sensitive, guess that is a different kind of highly confidential. This made the folks at the Y-12 Oak Ridge complex in Tennessee nervous. They are sitting on large quantities highly enriched uranium that is to be moved into a $549 million high-security warehouse that will be competed next year. That day cannot come fast enough as they have had to step up security due to the leaked document.
President Barack Obama on a French television station claimed the United States could be considered one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. Talk about telling them what they want to hear and then hoping it sticks. Two problems with this, first the left has spent years trying to say we are not a Christian nation, the want to separate religion from government, but today we are a large Muslim nation. We will admit the number of Christians in the country is not what it was when it was originally populated by Christians seeking religious freedom, Christianity is still the top religion followed by Judaism. Which moves into the next problem with President Obama’s declaration, there is no hard number of Muslims in the US. There is 78% of the country claiming to be Christian and only .06 claims to be Muslims. Who is he trying to kid with this, there are more people claiming to have no religion then practicing Islam in the US. The leading nation of Muslims is Indonesia with 204 million, Pakistan has 164 million, India has 154 million, this are the top three, number 16 is Iraq with 27 million, we would estimate the US has less than four million, which by all accounts is a high number. How can the President of the United States ever make the claim United States could be considered one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. Unless the fact that no matter what he says, people just believe him because he is of course President Barack Obama.

President Barack Obama campaigned hard against taxing health care benefits while running for president in 2009. He called John McCain part of the Washington problem for not having new ideas and being part of the system. The president argued they would undermine job-based coverage, and criticized the McCain proposal for this same idea. The federal government would tax about $250 billion a year treating health care benefits like wages. This is classic case of the people who work and pay for health insurance would be taxed to cover the fifty million Americans who are now uninsured. The estimated cost to cover them could cost be close $1.5 trillion over the next ten years. The opposition comes from organized labor and from Democrats. President Obama is leaving the details to Congress and just like he did with the spendulus bill, he is quite a leader. Taxing hard working American who pays their taxes and has health insurance is close to as criminal as a government can be, when the tax is used to pay for the people who are not working and not paying for insurance. The problem is these people still expect the same healthcare that working people pay on average 5,000 a year just to be covered by an employee match.

I have ever loved that has ever loved me
And now you got the best of me

We do not like to speak about local politics too much. Then a day like today comes along when you realize not only is all politics local, it is also corrupt and hopeless. Today in Massachusetts a former Speaker of the House was indicted on Federal charges. Not a big story except his predecessor the last Speaker of the house was indicted and convicted of Federal charges. If that was not enough the one before that one, you guessed it indicted and convicted on Federal Charges. Three Speakers of the House in a row have gone down in the perp walk of shame. First was Charley “Good Time” Flaherty he had a problem paying his taxes, guilty as charged. He was replaced by Tom Finneran he was caught lying to a grand jury about jury-rigging districts on the voting map, Guilty as charged. Then today the trifecta as Sal DeMasi the worst of the three offenders is accused of cash grab and selling state contracts. There is a for sale sign in front of the congress of Massachusetts and based on the track record it is pay to play politics and everything is on the table.
President Barack Obama watched his war funding request jump a hurdle as House and Senate Democrats reached a tentative agreement on the $100 billion war-funding bill. Which also includes a new line of credit for the International Monetary Fund that funding is a top priority of President Obama, because he pledged the $100 billion line of credit at April’s G-20 summit in London to help developing countries deal with the troubled global economy. They still have not offered up the $80 million to close the prison at Gitmo. This one could be a fight as at least fifty liberal Democrats oppose the war funding measure. There is an item to buy eight C-17 cargo jets from Boeing, which is somewhat odd as these planes are on a list of program eliminations announced by President Obama last month. There is also another flap that flies in the face of President Obama the bill is not free of parochial earmarks as requested, there is $489 million to restore barrier islands along the Mississippi Gulf Coast destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and restore ecosystems such as salt marshes to protect the coast.
