Open Thread: There Is A lot Going On. What Do You Think???

Psalm 46                                                                                                                                                     1 God is our refuge and strength,
   an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
   and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
   and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]
 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
   the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
   God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
   he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
 7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our fortress.
 8 Come and see what the LORD has done,
   the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
   to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
   he burns the shields[d] with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth.”
 11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Obama Becomes Victim of Liberal Attack Ads

Obama has really pissed off the liberals he once courted. It's starting to look like the Democratic Party is at the beginning of the end. If I remember correctly the Tea Party has been trying to warn the Blue Dogs that the Progressive would destroy the party of JFK. If you need a good laugh just take a look at some of the left wing blogs. Obama has lite the left wings fuse and they are getting ready to blow. It almost seems as though that is exactly what Obama wanted to do. They have poked and prodded the Tea Partiers without incidence or crisis. It didn't take much to set the liberals off.

This Is What Happens When You Can't Afford Intitlements Any More

LONDON (AP) — Police with riot shields held off angry student protesters marching to London’s Parliament Square on Thursday as lawmakers debated a controversial plan to triple university tuition fees in England.
Thousands of students held demonstrations and sit-ins throughout the country, heaping pressure on the government to reverse course. Students marched through central London, banging drums, waving placards and chanting “education is not for sale,” as weeks of nationwide protests reached a crescendo.
Small groups of protesters tore down barricades and threw paint bombs as police with batons fended off others in attempts to reinforce a security cordon near Parliament. Despite minor scuffles, the massive march remained largely peaceful.
The tuition vote poses a crucial test for both the Conservative‘s governing coalition with the Liberal Democrats and the government’s austerity plans to reduce Britain’s budget deficit.
The vote put Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and other Liberal Democrat leaders in an awkward spot. Liberal Democrats signed a pre-election pledge to oppose any such tuition hike, and have reserved the right to abstain in the vote even though they are part of the governing coalition proposing the change.
Those protesting in central London were particularly incensed by what seems like a broken pledge by Clegg’s party.
“I’m here because the Liberal Democrats broke their promise,” said 19-year-old Kings College student Shivan David from London’s Trafalgar Square. “I don‘t think education should be free but I do think that tripling fees doesn’t make any sense. We are paying more for less.”                                                                                                                                                       We conservative can expect the same thing in this country when we make the necessary cuts in our budgets. Liberals are attacking businesses and web sites they feel are against the Wikileaks anarchists.                   The military is preparing for civil unrest. Just look at this picture:
This picture, reportedly released by the Air Force, shows Alaska National Guard troops taking part in a training exercise. According the picture’s caption, “Alaska Army National Guard Soldiers assist Anchorage Police to calm or detain rioters as part of the training scenario of exercise ‘Vigilant Guard.’” One actor is holding a sign saying, “FOOD NOW!”:

“America‘s intelligence community has said the global economic crisis is now the top threat to the nation’s security,” NPR reported in February ‘09. “The downturn could produce political instability and damage the ties that hold countries together. Countries might even be tempted to engage in financial warfare, officials say.”
Are you going to prepare for what the government thinks may come? What have you done to prepare for what seems is the perfect storm?
