While most Americans like the idea of drug testing for welfare recipients, they LOVE the idea of drug testing for members of Congress.

According to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, 64 percent of Americans favor requiring welfare recipients to submit to random drug testing — a measure pushed by Republican lawmakers in recent years — while 18 percent oppose it.

But an even stronger majority said they’re in favor of random drug testing for members of Congress, by a 78 percent to 7 percent margin. Sixty-two percent said they “strongly” favor drug testing for congressional lawmakers, compared to only 51 percent who said the same of welfare recipients.

Personally, I’d like to see a two-a-day ‘Boehner, Boner, whatever’ breathalyzer test.

the ‘Question of the Day’

Via: Time

On Tuesday, Gallup announced that Congress had reached a new low,  winning the approval of just 9% of the American public.

This breaks Congress’s  record nadir from last year, when the amount of Americans who thought lawmakers  were doing a good job dipped to 10%.

~

The poll talked to 1,039 adults across the country and carries a margin of error  of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Thart’s right, could actually be ONLY 5%.

President Obama’s Brilliant Strategy No One Seems To Recognize

Via: FreakOutNation

1

As the media interprets recent events as Obama’s march to war, America and the world falls for it hook, line and sinker.

Say what you want about Obama but he is a very smart man. He would never ask permission he did not need from Congress to launch a strike on Syria unless he knew beyond a doubt he could get it. That is if his real intentions were to actually carry out military operations.

But why on earth does it appear he wants this war?

After agonizing over this question over and over I began to realize there is only one logical explanation. HE DOESE NOT!

Only a month ago the GOP was accusing Obama of being weak for not acting when the “red line” was crossed. There was pressure for him not only from the US but from the world as well. The reputation of the great American defender was on the line. Still it was obvious at the time Obama did not want to rush into another quagmire, bogging down the rest of his tenure as our nation’s leader. But the evidence kept rolling in. He had to do something not only for his reputation as a world leader but for the United States as well.

Cue the British Parliament to provide Obama with the perfect out.

Just days after Britain’s governing body eliminated any joint action with the US to participate in a coalition to strike the Assad regime, Obama made a surprising and decisive move.

Against the advice of all his advisors, he put any US participation in the hands of our do-nothing Congress with no chance they would give him the approval he needed. Not because it isn’t the right thing to do but because Obama was asking for it. The outcome is a given if you just take a step back and look at the situation rationally. And there is no way Obama is going to launch this attack once Congress says no. It would be political suicide. Bush may have gotten away with it but America is not going to let it happen again. The fallout would signal the end of any and all effectiveness the Obama administration for the remaining years of his presidency. And history would place him with the likes of war criminals like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Let me repeat this. Obama is not that stupid!

~

Tell me this isn’t the best outcome ever. And I honestly think this was Obama’s intention from the beginning. You know damn well if he didn’t do anything, Republicans would be calling him weak because of the corner he had painted himself in when he talked about the red line.

Granted, Obama made a mistake with his “red line” comment, but by acting in a calm savvy manner, he can come out looking the part of the tough guy without even taking a swing. And he smiles as Congress (suckas!) does for him what he wanted in the first place.

If America could just set down their pitchforks and torches for a moment, they would be able to see what brilliant strategy this is.

personal thought:

The Republican/Teabagger/Libertarian Party has been wanting to impeach the President for being a Communist/Muslim/Kenyan, Bengazi, and Obamacare – well, SOL!

Q: But impeachment for bombing Syria?

A: Yeah,I think it would’ve passed in the House. The Senate of course wouldn’t of gone along; but the damage would of been done.

Brilliant, Mr. President, Brilliant!

BREAKING NEWS – Poll: Majority Of Americans Approve Of Sending Congress To Syria

1

As President Obama continues to push for a plan of limited military intervention in Syria, a new poll of Americans has found that though the nation remains wary over the prospect of becoming involved in another Middle Eastern war, the vast majority of U.S. citizens strongly approve of sending Congress to Syria.

The New York Times/CBS News poll showed that MORE than 90 PERCENT of the public is convinced that putting all 535 representatives of the United States Congress on the ground in Syria—including Senate pro tempore Patrick Leahy, House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and, in fact, all current members of the House and Senate—is the best course of action at this time.

Via: Huffington Post

The Interstate 5 Bridge over the Skagit River in Washington state collapsed around 7 p.m. on Thursday, dumping cars and people into the water, KIRO-TV reported.BOTH north and southbound lanes of the interstate were affected.

At least two vehicles were on the span when it fell into the river. Rescue teams quickly arrived on the scene to save victims from the chilly waters. When first responders pulled the first victim off the roof of his vehicle, nearby eyewitnesses applauded, The Skagit Valley Herald reported.

Authorities said nobody was killed in the incident, but three people were injured and taken to area hospitals.

Cause of the collapse is unknown at this time. According to The Associated Press, police are speaking with a commercial truck driver whose rig may have hit the bridge.

Bart Treece, approximately age 93, with the Washington State Department of Transportation told KOMO News that he was unsure when the bridge was last inspected.

“All of our bridges in the area are pretty old,” he said.

GOP leader Cantor OPPOSES Senate ‘cliff’ bill

1

Via: Yahoo

The No. 2 Republican in the House leadership says he opposes a Senate-passed measure to avert the so-called fiscal cliff.

Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor (see GIF) told reporters after a two-hour closed-door meeting Tuesday with his GOP lawmakers that he did not support the bill.

He said House leaders were looking for “the best path forward” and that no decisions had been made.

The Senate passed the measure early Tuesday by a sweeping 89-EIGHT vote. House passage of the measure would send it to President Barack Obama for his signature. The bill would increase taxes on family income exceeding $450,000 and delay across-the-board spending cuts for two months.

House GOP leaders were considering amending the measure and sending it back to the Senate, but that step could  WILL produce a deadlock.
