U.S. Troops Will Soon Get Tiny Kamikaze Drone




AeroVironment calls its teeny-tiny killer drone the Switchblade. Essentially a guided missile small enough to fit in a backback and fire at a single foe, it might be the kind of blade U.S. troops soon bring to a gunfight with Afghan insurgents. [Wired]

Occupying children’s minds: ‘Radical children’s literature’ at Wall Street protests

After all, most parents want their children to be far left in their early years -NYTimes


Lest there be any doubt about the politics and aims of the Flea Party's sponsors and organizers, this ought end them.  From the Daily Caller:

Emails posted online Monday from a private Occupy Wall Street mailing list show that protest leaders considered indoctrinating children with radical literature at Zucotti Park in New York City.

In response to protest organizer Kelley Wolcott’s open request to “coordinate” a “family day,” another mailing list member offered up socialist literature for use during the festivities.

“I have a story book called Tales for Little Rebels: A Collection of Radical Children’s Literature, with stories ranging from Dr. Seuss to Bolshevik sponsored ‘Fairy Tales for Worker’s Children,’” Nicolas Moselle Allen wrote. “Let me know if you would like this!”

Children of the Left, Unite!

    By CALEB CRAIN

Financial behemoths have been nationalized. The government is promising to spend liberally to combat recession. There are even rumors of universal health care. Socialism is on the march! As we leave capitalism behind, the traditionalists among you may be wondering: Will they come for our children?

Too late. As Julia L. Mickenberg and Philip Nel document in Tales for Little Rebels: A Collection of Radical Children’s Literature (New York University, $32.95), Marxist principles have been dripping steadily into the minds of American youth for more than a century. This isn’t altogether surprising. After all, most parents want their children to be far left in their early years — to share toys, to eschew the torture of siblings, to leave a clean environment behind them, to refrain from causing the extinction of the dog, to rise above coveting and hoarding, and to view the blandishments of corporate America through a lens of harsh skepticism. But fewer parents wish for their children to carry all these virtues into adulthood. It is one thing to convince your child that no individual owns the sandbox and that it is better for all children that it is so. It is another to hope that when he grows up he will donate the family home to a workers’ collective. ...

They recognize, same as we do, that this is sort of a "now of never" time.  The perfect storm for radical revolutionaries to strike.  Which is why in my opinion this world economy was engineered.

Sets me to pondering.  First off, I find her very attractive. If she had just 4-5 of those skin discolorations however, we wouldn't call them freckles, but blemishes. They'd stand out and distract.  

Bear with me here. 

I'm surmising that she's Irish, as are the Kennedys and Bill Clinton.  Having been around so many freckles may have had a subliminal influence on their characters.  To wit; a few lies stand out, and people will focus on them. But, if you lie about everything  they go unnoticed,  and may even enhance your appeal.  Think about it.  Most Irish are democrats.

The Bigs


The Bigs
In 2010, the tea party movement struck the first blow to the Establishment by working within the Republican Party to elect limited government, constitutional conservatives. Because their aim is to return power to individuals and localities, the tea party is the only organic, grass roots movement in this country that is by its very nature subversive to the political Establishment and therefore to the culture of “The Bigs.”

Since the 2010-midterm elections there has been a quiet war going on within the Republican Party between the Establishment and the insurgent tea party movement. It is the outcome of this war, rather than whether a centrist third party candidate will emerge, that we believe is the crucial factor in determining whether or not our country will be able to rid itself of the destructive culture of “The Bigs.”

[...]

The central question of this defining period of time in which we live: Will the Tea Party, with all its iconoclastic energy and goals, succeed in defeating the Establishment? For the country’s sake, let’s hope the answer is yes. [The Washington Establishment's Big Problem]

Writing for RCP, Michael Needham and Tim Chapman have captured THE BIG IDEA in this article, and it makes me giddy.

"Finding a middle road and going along to get along is how our nation ended up $14.8 trillion in debt. If the Republican Party were to live up to the opportunity it was given in the 2010 election, a third party would not be necessary."



Meet Eric Cantor

Ok. everyone, we hear alot of talk about the "GOP Establishment", OK WHO are they, CALL 'EM OUT! [Free Republic]



My short answer to that FR post was "Anyone in the Party who has now, or has ever had decision making authority, or input, into what candidates get funding.

I said short answer.  Common sense leads us to others.  Like Eric Cantor, of whom we can say is is the archetypal establishment Republican.  That would be mealy-mouthed and  unprincipled.   Witness,  this from  Damian.

Rodger,

I heard Rep. Cantor on the Fox Sunday show. He actually used the term “income disparity.” I couldn’t believe this guy used that term, or that he is a member of the Republican leadership. It occurs to me that the Tea Party is right. Cantor and Boehner need to be replaced. They are on the other side. Sorry to bother you with this, but it is troublesome.

Eric Cantor- Duche


[Excerpt - Eric Cantor exercising his inner-commie]

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said repeatedly Sunday that Republicans agree that too few people control too much wealth in America.

"We know in this country right now that there is a complaint about folks at the top end of the income scales, that they make too much and too many don't make enough," Cantor said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday, toning down his earlier criticism of the Occupy Wall Street protests.

"We need to encourage folks at the top of the income scale to actually put their money their work to create more jobs so we can see a closing of the gap," he added.

Cantor’s change of tone comes as protests against Wall Street are gaining in popularity and the White House seeks to ride the latest wave of populist anger.

Republicans "are about income mobility," Cantor said as he tried to make the case that the GOP was best equipped to spread the wealth. "And that's what we should be focused on to take care of the income disparities." [etc]
