You people are being played by the GOP. Remember when the GOP wanted to raise the debt ceiling, but claim they would oppose it. They voted to raise it, but then Congress could vote to stop the raise. The President could then veto the stoppage and the debt ceiling would raise. But the GOP could claim they opposed him.
What could possibly go wrong?
Woolly mammoths could be brought back from extinction after a preserved body of one of the ancient animals was found frozen in the snowy wastes of Siberia, scientists hope.
The mammoth, which took its last steps around 40,000 years ago, is in such good condition that biologists believe they may be able to clone the creature.
An autopsy of the Ice Age beast, which has been nicknamed Buttercup by scientists, will be shown in a documentary later this month.

An acquaintance of mine, whose daughter was about to be married, decided to give her a diamond ring that had been in the family for several generations.
The stone had never been appraised, so the father asked a gemologist friend if she would take a look at it.

Yesterday Rush Limbaugh was speaking about the same thing everyone else in the universe is discussing – Obama’s crossing from boyhood to manhood – from quasi-president to quasi-dictator.
He (Limbaugh) mentioned a Washington Post article that was posted during the airing of his program by Robert Costa regarding the damage control of poor establishment Republican “elders” like Lindsey Graham and their struggle to “control the outrage” within their ranks.
In other words, control the rabble-rousers like Michelle Bachmann and Ted Cruz.
What the “elders” in the GOP don’t get is that Obama isn’t doing this for the sake of illegal aliens. He, like many have said, is doing this to create a permanent underclass of Democrat voters.
Yet he’s also doing it for a much more insidious reason. I believe he means to purposely stick a finger in the eye of what he hates most – the Constitution of the United States – that document written by racist whites with its cadre of negative liberties.
Racing through the mountain range on horseback, the Kazakh people practice their ancient tradition of hunting with golden eagles.
The eagles soar through the air at speeds of up to 200 mph as they race to reach their keeper first, during an annual festival celebrating the heritage of the Turkic group.
The Golden Eagle festival is held every October in Bayan-Olgii, a province in western Mongolia.

President Barack Obama’s unilateral amnesty will quickly add as many foreign workers to the nation’s legal labor force as the total number of new jobs created by his economy since 2009.
The plans, expected to be announced late Nov. 20, will distribute five million work permits to illegal immigrants, and also create a new inflow of foreign college graduates for prestigious salaried jobs, according to press reports.
Obama has already provided or promised almost one million extra work permits to foreigners, while his economy has only added six million jobs since 2009.
Under the president’s new amnesty plan, “up to four million undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States for at least five years can apply. … An additional one million people will get protection from deportation through other parts of the president’s plan,” according to a Nov. 19 report in The New York Times.
The five million total was attributed to “people briefed on his plans,” the Times reports.
The five million work permits will add to Obama’s prior giveaways, which have provided work permits to almost one million foreigners.
In 2011, Barack Obama said he did not have the constitutional authority to do what he is going to announce today. In fact, on March 28, 2011, Barack Obama said
“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case…. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”
The only thing to change between 2011 and now are two elections — one of which saw President Obama win after saying this. The other saw both he and his party go down to defeat after suggesting he had changed his mind. In other words, the status quo of public opposition (even among Hispanic voters) to a unilateral decision by fiat remains.

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods? Here in New England we’re freezing our tushies off. It could be worse. We could be living in the Lakes region or Buffalo New York buried under several feet of snow, with more on the way. And winter is still over a month away.
I was speaking with a buddy of mine from Houston Texas a day or so ago. He told me was in the 30s. The 30s – in Houston – where they fry bacon on the sidewalks in May.
In fact the whole country is frozen over, save for maybe the southern tip of Florida.
However, none of this seems to have any affect on the liberal wackos in Berkeley California.
Kristin Bender of the AP writes: “Some of the country’s first gas pump warning labels about climate change are coming to Berkeley, a city with a long history of green and clean policies. The Berkeley City Council voted late Tuesday to draft a proposal by next spring that will put stickers on gas pumps citywide to warn customers that burning fuel contributes to global warming.”
