    The SO and I are USAF enlisted Vets and we absolutely support Romney. Not only is he the most logical and correct choice, he's a proven leader unafraid of responsibility and hard work. I'm not surprised at the list of military who support him. They've all probably had the intelligence to take a look at the pretenders sequestration bill and understand how it leaves our military holding rubberband slingshots.

    and this matters because? contrary to popular belief this is NOT a military society. it's a society of PEOPLE who need health care, education, homes. how many of you are on medicare now? social security? how about your children - can they afford to go to college? do they have loans? how about jobs to china, which your dear romney is STILL sending through bain right now?

think about it. what is happening right here in our country.

here is your romneyism - i wish you all luck if this is what we wake up to on wednesday:

The ten guiding principles of Romneyism are:

1. Corporations are the basic units of society. Corporations are people, and the overriding purpose of an economy is to maximize corporate profits. When profits are maximized, the economy grows fastest. This growth benefits everyone in the form greater output, better products and services, and higher share prices.

2. Workers are a means to the goal of maximizing corporate profits. If workers do not contribute to that goal, they should be fired. If they cannot then find other work that helps maximize profits in another company, their wages must be too high, and they must therefore accept steadily lower wages until they find a job.

3. All factors of production -- capital, physical plant and equipment, workers -- are fungible and should be treated the same. Any that fail to deliver high competitive returns should be replaced or discarded. This keeps an economy efficient. Fairness is and should be irrelevant.

4. Pollution, unsafe products, unsafe working conditions, financial fraud, and other negative side effects of the pursuit of profits are the price society pays for profit-driven growth. They should not be used as excuses to constrain the pursuit of profits through regulation.

5. Individual worth depends on net worth -- how much money one has made, and the value of the assets that money has been invested in. Any person with enough intelligence and ambition can make a fortune. Failure to do so is sign of moral and intellectual inferiority.

6. People who fail in the economy should not be coddled. They should not receive food stamps, Medicaid, or any other form of social subsidy. Coddling leads to a weaker society and a weaker economy.

7. Taxes are inherently bad because they constrain profit-making. It is the right and responsibility of individuals and corporations to exploit every tax loophole they (and their tax attorneys) can find in order to pay the lowest taxes possible.

8. Politics is a game whose only purpose is to win. Any means used to win the game is legitimate even if it involves lying and cheating, as long as it gains more supporters than it loses.

9. Democracy is dangerous because it is forever vulnerable to the votes of a majority intent on capturing the wealth of the successful minority, on whom the economy depends. The rich must therefore do whatever is necessary to prevent the majority from exercising its will, including spending large sums of money on lobbyists and political campaigns. The most virtuous among the rich will go a step further and run for president.

10. The three most important aspects of life are family, religion, and money. Patriotism is a matter of guarding our economy from unfair traders and undocumented immigrants, rather than joining together for the common good. We owe nothing to one another as citizens of the same society.

may god help us if this is what we wake up to on wednesday.

Lockheed is going to lay off 123,000

Tuesday, October 30, 2012



I did check this out. The White House has asked Lockheed-Martin NOT to issue notices of lay-offs until December (after the election)

Can it be anymore clear who we are dealing with? He will do anything to get re-elected and if he does....God help America.

Lockheed Martin is going to lay off 123,000 defense workers due to Obama's downsizing of the military. This hit the Drudge report yesterday. This is true!

The law requires Lockheed to give 60-day notice to all to-be-fired employees within 60 days. That drop dead date would be November 1st. Since this would be bad for the election, Obama has promised that our government would cover all Lockheed severance packages to fired employees if Lockheed would not release the names and locations of those losing their jobs until after the election!

Send this to all you know since it will never show up in the news. This posting is from a defense contract newspaper called The Hill. Read details below:

  First off Lockheed has 123,000 workers in total and I think you would agree that even if sequestration were to happen, they will not have to layoff their entire workforce. The real number would be closer to 10,000 based on what I am not sure but that was the number Lockheed gave. The reason the number 123,000 has come up is because nobody knows exactly what sequestration will actually do, what contracts will be effected or even what contractors will be effected so they said they would have to send notices to almost their entire workforce to cover their butts in case they had to lay anyone off and comply with WARN notices. The DOL came back and said under the law, mere conjecture does not trigger the obligation for WARN notices. This all was said in June/July 2012. Further more, the DOD has indicated no contract actions on or about 2 January, 2013, and that any action to adjust funding levels on contracts as a result of sequestration would likely not occur for several months after jan 2 leaving plenty of time for WARN notices without wasting States' resources in undertaking employment assistance activities where none are needed and create unnecessary anxiety and uncertainty for workers not to mention driving their stock into the ground which I assure you Lockheed was prob most concerned with.

Lets also point out that nobody expected we would even get to the point of thinking about the actuality of sequestration as it was put in as means of prodding Congress into coming up with a concrete plan for addressing the deficit issue which they haven't been able to do.

Joe Biden to Father of Former Navy SEAL Killed in Benghazi: ‘Did Your Son Always Have Balls the Size of Cue Balls?’

A bombshell new report says that the SEALS were told to “stand down” when they heard gunshots at the ambassador’s compound, and that three requests for aid were denied. get the shocking details here.

The father of one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya says President Barack Obama wouldn’t even look him in the eye and Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his son’s body returned to America. He also says the White House’s story on the attack doesn’t pass the smell test.

Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, called into “The Glenn Beck Program” on TheBlazeTV Thursday and recounted his interactions with the president, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Biden at the ceremony for the Libya victims at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He told host Glenn Beck that what they told him, coupled with new reports that indicate the Obama administration knew very good and well, almost immediately, that a terrorist attack was occurring in Benghazi, make him certain that the American people are not getting the whole truth.

Vice President Biden, as he has become known to do, reportedly made a wildly inappropriate comment to the father who had just lost his hero son.

Woods said Biden came over to his family and asked in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”

.
“Are these the words of someone who is sorry?” said Woods.


The grieving father also described his brief encounter with President Obama during the ceremony for the Libya victims.

“When he finally came over to where we were, I could tell that he was rather conflicted, a person who was not at peace with himself,” Woods said. “Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder.”

“I could tell that he was not sorry,” he added. “He had no remorse.”

Beck said he wanted to give the president “the benefit of the doubt,” and asked Woods how he could be sure that Obama wasn’t just uncomfortable or nervous during their conversation. Woods said it was Obama’s “demeanor.”

Hillary Clinton’s comments to Woods raise even more questions about the White House’s official story on the Benghazi attack, which has already been extremely inconsistent.

After apologizing for his loss, Woods said Clinton told him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”


Obviously, Clinton was referring to the anti-Muslim YouTube video that the Obama administration spent nearly two weeks blaming for the attack. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, Clinton and the president himself all blamed the video at various points. Beck pointed out that the White House is now trying to claim that it has always considered terrorism as the cause of the attack.

“When she said that, I could tell that she was not telling me the truth,” Woods said about Clinton.

Watch part I of the interview with Beck here via TheBlazeTV:


Reading another State Department email that further calls into question the U.S. response to the attack, Beck revealed that the U.S. government was made aware that the compound in Benghazi was under attack by “mortar fire,” hardly a sign of a spontaneous protest.

“The question that I had in my mind,” Woods replied, “was why did we not do something to protect our forces?”

“We didn’t even dispatch anybody,” Beck lamented.

“You released the information that the White House within minutes of the attack, watched in real time the events unfolding,” Woods told Beck earlier in the program. “They denied the pleas for help and they watched my son die.”

Woods went on to read the following statement, in honor of his son:

“I want to honor my son, Ty Woods, who responded to the cries for help and voluntarily sacrificed his life to protect the lives of other Americans. In the last few days it has become public knowledge that within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied. Apparently, C-130s were ready to respond immediately. In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision. This has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with integrity and honor. My son was a true American hero. We need more heroes today. My son showed moral courage. This is an opportunity for the person or persons who made the decision to sacrifice my son’s life to stand up.”

Tears in his eyes, Beck told Woods that his son was not even there for security purposes but after hearing cries for help he voluntarily protected his fellow Americans, knowing his life would be put in danger. Beck called Tyrone Woods a “hero” multiple times throughout the show.

“I am sorry for your loss, and I know there are millions of Americans that are sorry for your loss,” Beck concluded.

    As an adult in my 30's, I have watched this country crumble as far as it's support for our troops. Desert Storm, Desert Shield, Iraq, Afghanistan....it all hits so close to home. Dear friends who happen to be brothers, fellow MPs and now veterans are finally home safe! All of America's soldiers should NEVER need to worry about whether or not we've got their back! How many soldiers have died with all of our love and support~that didn't last to the governments decisions to have their backs too!

I am proud to be an American! I love ALL my Service men and women who protect our "One nation under God"!

    Yes, it is disgusting the way this was handled, or not handled. Wonder who gave the orders? Hilary looked foolish as well and Barack, well he just plain lied. emoticon

    Everything about how this was handled is abhorrent to me as an American, a former USAF Vet and a patriot. This admin KNEW before it happened, while it happened and did the worst thing possible. Not just ignore the situation, but to deny the situation, blame it on someone else (a standard mantra they use!) and then go party with the "pretty people" in Vegas. My SO and I are so sickened as is everyone we talk to. It's time to enact some change we can believe in of our own. My heart aches for the families of the victims of this president and his cabinet. They weren't killed by terrorists from outside the country, they were killed by their own from here.
