On Oct. 14, Sen. Barbara Boxer compared conservative House GOP members to those who commit domestic abuse. She is referring to the action by those conservatives to warn America that implementing Obamacare will massively increase our public debt.
What Boxer is hiding from us is that an increase in debt load creates an erosion of confidence in United States Treasury bills. This has a negative impact on the long-term solvency of the United States.
People in positions of power in China and Japan are now questioning why our government leadership refuses to reduce our out-of-control spending. We cannot kick the can down the road any longer.
On this 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, Boxer doesn't mention the 54 million abortions conducted in this country nor show remorse for this disrespect for human life. Murder of the unborn is the ultimate act of domestic abuse. Speeches at every Democratic National Convention reference abortion or a pro-choice platform to huge cheers from the rabid convention hall audience.
Sen. Boxer and her cohorts must realize that labeling conservatives as domestic abusers will not create a stronger dollar. Instead, the dollar will continue to lose value, resulting in a financial panic that will severely impact our youth, middle class and retirees.

Never thought I'd agree with President Obama on anything, but I do! He says he's sorry. I agree; I think he's the sorriest president we've ever had.
Not only on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, but almost every agency in D.C.; the IRS and their misconduct and lies, and the Veterans' Administration that takes very expensive, fun trips (called conferences) while they are so far behind that some of our vets die before ever receiving the benefits they need - after putting their lives on the line protecting us.
Of course, there's the Department of Homeland Security - one big, unfunny joke. Our borders are worse than ever (they will lie to you and say there are fewer crossing the border). Janet Napolitano, who was head of the department, is gone. She is now overseeing California universities and has designated $5 million to provide special counseling and financial aid for students living in the U.S. illegally.
President Obama's appointments are disgusting. Eric Holder, who presided over Fast and Furious, won't prosecute the New Black Panthers but will sue Arizona and Texas over their immigration laws. Almost every agency in D.C. is under some cloud, and those who comply with Obama's wishes to lie for him are promoted, i.e. Susan Rice on Benghazi and Hillary Clinton, who said she was responsible but for what no one knows yet.
There are those who criticize the Tea Party and Sen. Ted Cruz. Would you deny citizens the right to form a new party, if the old ones are not responsive to their wishes? Cruz voted exactly as those who sent him there wanted - a rare thing in Congress. He voted against higher taxes. Every Democrat in Congress voted for the highest tax increase in U.S. history, that being affordable/unaffordable healthcare known as Obamacare. Remember, the Supreme Court said it was a tax. Most interesting: the president, his family and aides, Congress and their aides, the Supreme Court and their staff may opt out for their better and cheaper subsidized health plans.
All this in the light of huge unemployment. Food stamp numbers have doubled under Obama and a prize was given to a woman who signed up the most to receive food stamps.
The Democrats in Congress are scrambling to make the crazy healthcare bill (which they didn't read, but voted for) because Nancy wanted to know what was in it - somewhat acceptable to "save their skins." Be aware that they aren't interested in your health or they would have read the bill, which affects 1/6th of our economy. It is power and control over our lives they want.
The definition by David Horowitz of liberals and progressives is: "liberals truly believe what they profess. Progressives believe that the end justifies the means." To me that means they can lie and deceive to get what they want. Hillary is also a progressive. When someone says they are going to "transform the U.S." - better find out what they mean.
Obama has not only made a mess of this country, we now learn that for five months he has broken the agreement to put sanctions on Iran. He has been allowing oil to be shipped out, helping Iran to the detriment of the U.S. and Israel. Guess he wants someone to like him. Wasn't this the failed policy we made with North Korea, allowing them to continue developing their atom bomb and the delivery system?
Yes, Mr. President, you are indeed a sorry president. Hope we can survive three more years under your leadership and the "Pied Pipers" Democrats in Congress. Even Bill Clinton said Obama needs to honor Obama's promise. Is this the same Bill who honored his marriage vows? What sleaze we have in high places.
