Racin' & Different Stuff:
By Tom Avenengo
I often think of my mother – especially on Mothers Day. She left us back on June 7, 1991. How well I remember that day. Right after she passed on, I called my wife to inform her, and to tell her that now we only had her mother to worry about. Early that evening we received the call that she, too, had passed on – yes the same day.
From a card my wife was given this past Mothers Day, by our son, Eric:
What is a mother?
She’s someone who give and cares and works and worries and dreams and plans and rushes and hurries and does the impossible all year long…
and is officially recognized on one day a year.
She’s someone who keeps going and giving and running around and putting out fires and caring and helping and saving the day – even though she doesn’t get the praise she deserves.
She’s someone we’d never make it without – too often the last to be thanked, but always first in our hearts.
Thank you, and have a very happy Mothers Day!
OK, here’s the scoop on what will be happening with me over these next few weeks:
I have a date for the surgery on my left carotid artery – Thursday, May 23rd. I needed clearance from my personal doctor and also from my cardiologist, on this. No problem I figured. Wrong! My pre-Op check up would be, I thought, on the 22nd of May. My doctor has to see the results of the pre-Op before he can clear me. Basically, same goes for my cardiologist – has to see results before clearance. So now a new date for the pre-Op – which will be this Thursday – May 16th at 1:00 PM. I’ll see my cardiologist on the 17th at 10:45 AM, then my regular doctor on the 21st, at 1:00 PM. As for the surgery – I have to be at the hospital at 11:00 AM. Oh – and I can’t have anything to eat or drink after midnight, too. The surgeon did tell me I should be out of the hospital on Friday, the 24th. I best be, since on Sunday it’s the Indy 500 and the World 600. Oh yes, when I saw the surgeon last week, I made mention that I’m still paying on the first bit of surgery he did on me – the surgery for the pacemaker/defibrillator. For some unknown reason, that was a lot more expensive than the second one – the two piece stent in my aorta. Go figure.
Well, didn’t “Mother Nature” kinda mess up this past weekend as far as racing went? The one track I thought would never get their
show in, did – Accord. I figured that
No idea as to how this gets done. 7 blocks across and 9 down – every time, with the removal of some blocks, than putting them back in.

So, is what follows really true, or not?
Things That Make You Go Hmmm!
1. Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes.' So how can the Obama
'birth certificate' state he is 'African-American' when the term wasn't even
used at that time?> >> >2. The birth certificate that the White
House released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961. It also lists Barack
Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, right? At the time of Obama's birth,
it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was

Note: I agree with what is said.
Are you aware of this?
Something to think about:
You have a Social Security card. I was always told to keep mine with me. Now, I believe that has changed – that it should be kept at home in a safe place? You know - the “Identity theft” stuff? So, you get older, and soon you’re eligible for Medicare. And you get a Medicare card. In a very high percentage of the time, your Medicare card number will be your Social Security number. Now, we’re told to make sure we always have our Medicare card with us – you know, in case there’s an emergency? Need I say more? Think about it.

I found this on Facebook on Tuesday evening. If you’re from the Northeast area, and have been around for some time, then you’ll know of the name Chick Stockwell. It seems he’s having some health issues:
Chick Stockwell update: He is still in the hospital and is improving; The doctors removed a tube from one of his lungs yesterday and were looking to remove the tube from his other lung today. He is very weak and will most likely be moved to a rehabilitation facility when the doctors think it's time for that.

NASCAR undeterred by appeal setbacks:NASCAR president Mike Helton insists the governing body did not have its power undermined by recent reductions in penalties through the appeal process. "I don't feel like this in anyway undermines what we do," Helton said Friday at Darlington Raceway. "And in most cases the process doesn't come back with anything that really changes our mind much [about the severity of the penalties]. We do our job and the due process exists for others to have an opportunity for others to listen to it and decisions are made to it." While disappointed in [the reductions of penalties to Penske & Gibbs], Helton stands by the original penalties and says NASCAR would respond in a similar way if faced with the same violations. He added that the rules may be written even more specific in the future so teams and those involved in the appeals process understand more clearly why the penalties were given. "First of all, the integrity of the appeal process needs to be maintained as independent of the regulating arm of NASCAR,'' Helton said. "But we do learn from the appeal process as to how we may be able to write or be more clear so that you can show a third party why we reacted the way we reacted."(ESPN)(5-11-2013)
Kurt Busch passes Indy rookie
test UPDATE: Kurt Busch wants to race an IndyCar at
UPDATE: Busch developed a
relationship with Andretti Autosport owner Andretti
through their mutual agent John Caponigro last season
when Busch interviewed with potential teams for 2013. At the time, Andretti was
entertaining a possible entry into NASCAR and a possible partnership with
Dodge. Since then, Busch signed with Furniture Row Racing to run in the Sprint
Cup Series, where he is currently 20th in the points
standings. Busch has the blessing of FRR team owner Barney Visser
to pursue this latest dream. "It's a bucket-list type item," he said.
"It's also because I have the heart and desire to do anything in
motorsports. So to wrap my arms around, moreso of
what can happen next, we've just got to let things sit on the burner here and
see where it goes." Although this year's
Elliott not officially retired, but not looking to race: Bill Elliott hasn't officially retired but he isn't itching to get back into a racecar these days. The 57-year-old driver, who has 828 career Cup starts but hasn't run full time since 2003, is more focused on the career of 17-year-old son Chase. Bill Elliott, the 1988 Cup champion who has 44 career victories, has competed in just seven races since the start of 2011 and 32 since the end of 2008. His last race was the Cup race in July at Daytona, where he qualified sixth in a Turner Motorsports car but got caught up in a crash to finish 37th. "I've thought about a lot of stuff," Elliott said Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. "Right now, I'm just kind of waiting to see where things go. It's kind of a two-fold deal. I still enjoy competing and that would be a neat deal. But unless you got in a caliber of car like I did a year ago, I really have a hard time justifying it after I got in such a good car. Why would I want to run and just kind of hang out? I'm going to look at a few things and decide here pretty soon what I'm going to do," he said.(Sporting News) (5-11-2013)
Menard plans to stay with Childress: #27-Paul Menard says he is "close" to re-signing with Richard Childress Racing. Menard said he's "looking forward" to making an announcement soon that he will remain in the #27 Menard's Chevy. Menard, 32, is currently ninth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup standings. He's remained in the top 10 for seven of 10 weeks this season and earned three consecutive top-10 finishes at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway and Auto Club Speedway earlier this year. Since Menard and crew chief Slugger Labbe joined RCR as a package deal in 2011, the driver has experienced the best three seasons of his Cup career, a stretch that includes a victory at the Brickyard 400. In 2012, Menard finished a career-high 16th in the points standings with an average finish of 15.5. Labbe signed an extension two weeks ago. His contract runs through 2016.(Fox Sports)(5-10-2013)
Sherwin-Williams becomes official sponsor of NASCAR: NASCAR and Sherwin-Williams announced a multi-year partnership designating the nation's largest specialty retailer of paint and painting supplies as the "Official Paint of NASCAR." Sherwin-Williams, a FORTUNE 500 company, will leverage its new designation for architectural paint and the power of NASCAR's intellectual property to activate at its more than 3,500 stores nationwide and ignite the passion of its customers many of whom are fiercely brand-loyal fans of the sport
In addition to signing on as an Official NASCAR Partner, Sherwin-Williams also becomes a Contingency Sponsor in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Touring & Weekly Series and GRAND-AM Road Racing. The NASCAR and GRAND-AM contingency programs foster strong relationships between competitors and the high-quality, performance-driven brands that are part of the program, by providing prize money for each race and at the end of each racing season. Competitors become eligible for the money by displaying partner decals on their race vehicles. As part of the contingency program, Sherwin-Williams will be title sponsor of the Fastest Lap Award in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.(NASCAR)(5-13-2013)
Who's likely to make the
Chase? Want to know who's a lock to make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup
this year? [Here's] six names: #48-Jimmie Johnson, #99-Carl Edwards, #20-Matt Kenseth, #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr., #15-Clint Bowyer and
#18-Kyle Busch. Typically, by the time the Cup series leaves
The six drivers listed above are locks for two basic reasons. Number one is the point spread between Bowyer in fifth and #5-Kasey Kahne and #2-Brad Keselowski, who are tied for sixth. Bowyer has scored 349 points through 11 races, 23 more than the two drivers immediately behind him. Second, five of the top six drivers (the first five listed above) have shown the sort of consistency necessary to make the Chase with relative ease. If Busch should fall out of the top 10 in points, he'll make the Chase as a wild card.
Beyond those six, however, assumptions are impossible and predictions nothing short of precarious. For one thing, five of the 12 drivers who made the Chase last year -- #24-Jeff Gordon, #16-Greg Biffle, #56-Martin Truex Jr., #14-Tony Stewart and #11-Denny Hamlin -- are currently outside the top 10. Common sense tells you that most, if not all of the drivers in that elite group will make a move in the 15 races before the Chase field is set.
To add to the intrigue, no driver in positions 11-20 in the standings has a victory so far this year. Should that remain the case, #27-Paul Menard and Gordon (currently 11th and 12th) would win the two Wild Card Chase spots by default.
Far more likely, however, is the prospect of such drivers as Hamlin (currently tied for 26th) or Stewart (21st) winning a race or two, cracking the top 20 and grabbing a wild card spot.(NASCAR Wire Service)(5-13-2013)

No pit road speed for Qualifying in All-Star race:
Speeding on pit road is now legal -- at least in qualifying for Saturday's Sprint All-Star race. In an attempt to spice up qualifying, pit road speeds that are strictly enforced in races as a safety measure will be lifted for Friday night's three-lap trip around Charlotte Motor Speedway that includes a mandatory four-time stop. Other cars will not be on pit road during All-Star qualifying, and crew members will not be allowed to come over the wall until the car is stopped, which is not the case in a race.(ESPN)(5-15-2013)
NBC to pick up TNT's NASCAR races? ESPN to cut back?:
NASCAR has signed one contract for 2015-2022, for the first 13 Cup races, with Fox Sports, which includes the new Fox Sports 1 that replaces Speed in August. Fox considered it a priority to get NASCAR as one of its anchor sports for its all-sports Fox Sports 1 network, so it already signed a deal for 2015-2022 (at a 36% rate increase). While the sport might have lost some of its buzz, Fox Sports recognized the loyalty of NASCAR fans to watch its programming. It will eventually put some Cup races on that cable network to boost its profile. The big question now turns to who will televise the remaining 23 races of the season. Right now, TNT has six and ESPN/ABC has 17. NBC is expected to make a run at NASCAR. It could replace TNT for those six races but there's also speculation it could take 12 or 13 races and ESPN/ABC gets the final 10 or 11 events. With Turner relinquishing NASCAR.com to NASCAR, it makes little sense for it to have the six races. It's not enough time to really get in a good flow. The TNT telecasts aren't bad at all, but it's just too short of a bridge from Fox to ESPN for any continuity or for the announcers to get into a groove. If NBC lands races, that would put more Cup events on network television, which is important considering the addition of cable races to the Fox portion of the schedule.(Sporting News)(5-15-2013)
Crew Members Suspended For Violation Of NASCAR Substance Abuse Policy:
Jackson L. (Lee) Dodson II, a crew member in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Frank W. Earnhardt, a crew member in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, have been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body's substance abuse policy. On May 9, Dodson was found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 19 (violation of the NASCAR substance abuse policy) of the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book. On May 10, Earnhardt was found to have violated Sections 12-1 and 19.(NASCAR)
AND Michael Waltrip Racing has fired crew member Lee Dodson after Dodson was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body's substance-abuse policy. Now in its fifth year of random drug testing, NASCAR suspends indefinitely anyone who fails a drug test. Before being reinstated, those suspended must meet with a substance-abuse professional and complete a recovery program based on the professional's recommendation. Dodson had joined MWR this year and had been working on the car of #15-Clint Bowyer. "Michael Waltrip Racing fully supports NASCAR's substance abuse policies and those who complete the Road to Recovery program," MWR said in a statement. "MWR's zero tolerance policy has resulted in the immediate termination of the employee."(Sporting News)(5-14-2013)
Former OVRP Dirt Oval runners:
Not much to report on this week thanks to “you know who”!
Davie Franek was 12th in the Jack Gunn Memorial race at Selinsgrove.
Kyle Rohner was 2nd at Penn Can in the 602 Sportsman feature.
Billy VanInwegen was a DNQ for the Modified feature at Utica/Rome, wile AJ Filbeck was 14th in the Sportsman feature.
Danny Creeden was 11th in the Modified feature at Accord. Anthony Perrego was 4th and Tyler Dippel 16th in the Sportsman feature. Tyler Boniface was 2nd, Andrew Reeves 5th and Kyle VanDuser 7th in the Spec Sportsman feature. Jason Roe was 4th and Lex Burritt 8th in the Lightning Sprint feature.

News from the AARN:
Note: Don’t forget – if you’re a subscriber to the AARN, you can have the free digital version. That is available on Tuesday mornings.
From their May 14th edition – picked up from the Digital Service:
It seems that what went on between Big Diamond, Jake Smulley, Big D's owner, and Keith Hoffman, regarding why Hoffman was no longer at Big D is someowhat different, per Mr. Smulley, than what Keith had to say last week in the AARN.
Ernie, like most of us, was happy to see the penalties (most of them, anyway) taken back from the Gibbs team, by NASCAR. He makes mention that Kyle Petty says that, yes, NASCAR did what they had to do, peer the rule book, but those rules were written up when teams made their own engines. Tody, you have outside manufactureres involved, and in most cases, the teams can not do anything to the engines. Bobby and Al Unser, Johnny Ruthereford, Jack Hewitt, Tom Bigelow, Pancho Cartr, Earl Baltes, A.J. Watson, and Don White will all be in attendance on May 18th for their induction into the USAC Hall of Fame. Tony Bettenhausen,
Henry Banks and Bob Wilke, all deceased, will also be inducted.

He has quite a bit about
I glanced over his write-up about the Jack Gunn Memorial race that was held last week at Selinsgrove. 13 Sprint Cars finishe d the 40 lap race - or were around at the end. there were 12 that are listed as DNF's.
Herb had an article about the Ford Dual Overhead Cam V8 engine. It was based on the 260 cubic inch V8 that powered Fords Fairlane, Falcon and Mercury Comet.
Sorry to say, but I tend to disagree with John on track sizes. Big tracks, like OCFS, with today's rules, do not lend themselves too good side-by-side racing. I've seen the leaders at OCFS - like a few years ago at an ESW 200, almost catch up to the tailenders, to lap them. When the starter showed the move over flag, those tailenders pulled away. I'll go along with John on the high banks at the Valley. Heck, they need them there what with those ling straights and tight turns.
Ken had a nice article on the late Bobby Marshman. Bobby had his share of wins - mostly in Midgets. He was quite fast in Indy Cars, but if it wasn't for bad luck, then he didn't have much luck at all.

Penn Can Speedway Offers Modified “Racer’s Dream” Payout At Tuesday, June 11 Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc.-VP Racing Fuels 'Clash at the Can' Event; Purse And Special Awards Now Top $30,000 For Fourth Annual Race; Manmiller Electric Sponsors Modified Heat Races
SUSQUEHANNA, PA – Northeast Modified racers asked for it. And they got it!
The 2013 Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc.-VP Racing Fuels 'Clash at the Can' offers a “racer's dream” pay structure on Tuesday, June 11 (rain date: June 12) at Penn Can Speedway. The 60-lap big-block/small-block Modified spectacular ensures overflowing pay envelopes throughout the field with a 'non-top-heavy' purse.
The base payout for the Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour-sanctioned event was set at $28,000. That record-setting total has grown as the countdown continues to the fourth running of the 'Clash at the Can' co-promotion involving track managers Al Wilcox and Reed Miller and Brett Deyo of BD Motorsports Media LLC.
Associate sponsorship for the event comes from Sharkey’s Fuels and Husqvarna, joining title sponsors Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc. and VP Racing Fuels in addition to a long list of bonus and special award partners.

teams and weekend warriors. A Friday, Saturday or Sunday night 'working man'
racer could – and many will – leave the

Second place pays $4,000, with $2,500 for third, $1,800 for fourth and $1,500 for fifth. The remainder of the top-10 pay structure is as follows: $1,400 (sixth), $1,300 (seventh), $1,200 (eighth), $1,100 (ninth) and $1,000 (10th).
The 'Clash' pays $500 to take the green flag! Additionally, the first six drivers failing to make the field via the consolations will transfer into the first Trackside Products 'Dash into the Clash' 6 1/2-lap Last Chance Qualifier. The 'Dash into the Clash' victor can either take $650 cash or the last starting spot in the main, paying $500 green money. All other 'Dash into the Clash' participants earn $50.

Our Country is run by such Crooked people it can't help itself.
I recently learned that the
one firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The
government has decided that it no longer needs these buildings (many of
which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country).
The sale of these properties will bring in billions of dollars and, with
that, millions of dollars in commissions for the one Company that is in
charge of handling the sale and negotiation of the new leases.
What makes this such a matter of concern to me is that the Company that
the Government has contracted with to conduct the sales (and the
corresponding leases for the new locations of the displaced post offices)
is owned by
What? Didn't that name mean anything to you? Maybe I should re-phrase and
say that the person that owns the company that is solely in charge of this
multi -million- dollar transaction is Richard Blum, investment banker and
husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein .
What are you feeling after reading this? Surprised? Mad? Sick? Lost?
It is impossible to intelligently argue with this short letter:
LETTER to the EDITOR-- MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
Let's look at what we have learned from this last congressional election:
Twenty-one of 22 incumbent senators were re-elected,
and 353 of 373 incumbent members of the House were re-elected.
The American people have re-elected 94 percent of the incumbents who were running for re-election to an institution that has an approval rating of about 9 percent.
This indicates, as an electorate, we are a nation of idiots.
We're now stuck with the demonstrated useless, dysfunctional government that we deserve.
You just can't fix stupid....
For months now I have been
hearing horror stories about the current administration and what it's doing to
the country. I've heard all sorts of conspiracy theories about FEMA camps, youth
police forces etc. I know you've heard some of them as well, and I've even
forwarded a lot of them. I finally have proof that some of them at least is true. Jas and I go down to
You read that right. They didn't have any available so I bought the last 5 boxes of .40 cal. ammunition they did have and that was hollow-point which the course will allow, but it costs more.
I called the customer service people and was told that I should call back after the 23rd as that's when the get their shipments in.
So, today, I went to the cheeperthandirt.com website to check --- every one of the manufacturers listed for .40 cal. ammunition was shown as OUT OF STOCK.
So, my friends, I guess the rumors of the DHS buying up millions and millions of rounds of .40 cal. ammunition are not rumors. The story is true - I know for sure. The big question is why? What is the obama regime up to? Whatever it is, it's no good.
Add that to their attempts to
regulate firearms, lying about

Young Tyler Dippel is continuing his raising monies for St Jude Children’s Hospital. He had this on Facebook:
Attention to all Facebook Friends,
It is with great pride and pleasure that I announce my new endeavor for the 2013 race season with the "new TEO Pro Car", the Hearn Team and Glenn Sullivan, President of KAMO Motorsports.
Many of you already know that 1/2 of my winnings are donated to the kids at the St Jude Children's Hospital. As the 2012 race season comes to a close, I am happy to report that I am at 85% of my $10,000 goal. Thank you to all those who gave to this cause.
To help make a difference in a kids life on this "special day of thanks", I am giving away FREE racing apparel to anyone who contributes $5.00 or more to St. Jude.

In 1955, ignorant hateful racist democrats told Rosa Parks, that by standing up for her rights, she was breaking the law would be arrested, should be murdered, and that she would accomplish nothing.
In 2013, ignorant hateful racist democrats are telling responsible gun owners that by standing up for our rights we are breaking the law need to be arrested, should be murdered, and that we will accomplish nothing.
Doesn’t make much sense, does it?
Homeless go without eating. Elderly go without needed medicines. Mentally ill go without treatment. Veterans go without benefits that were promised. Yet we donate billions to other countries, and excessive immigration before helping our own first. 1% will re-post and 99% won’t. Have the guts to re-post this. I KNOW I’m in the 1%.

Big trouble brews for Obama, Democrats

"Next, U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., told reporters this week that yet another shoe is about to drop in the Benghazi scandal -- information that will take many people by surprise."
"Apparently the White
House has sought to get out in front of the coming bad news by summoning
members of the mainstream media to the White House for a special private
"And yet on another front, the Obama administration seized information devised by a private developer who had perfected a means by which citizens can print out guns in 3-D, away from the snooping eyes of government. When the administration figured out that citizens could potentially use the software to make their own firearms, including those that are banned in some liberal states, the powers that be in the federal government shut down the developer's website and claimed full ownership of the technology, which amounts to abject theft."

3) That the money the participants elected to put Into the Program would

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as

31 Of Your Favorite TV Shows Just Got Canceled
NBC was by far the harshest, canceling all of the below shows:
"Up All Night": Actually a funny show, it was doomed when star Christina Applegate departed in February. Not even remaining cast members Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett could save the sinking ship.
"1600 Penn": Jenna Elfman, Bill Pullman and Josh Gadd were barely given a chance. Their half-hour comedy was canceled just five months after it premiered.
"Smash": Produced by Steven Spielberg and starring Katharine McPhee, "Smash" showed the drama behind the scenes on Broadway but didn't have enough to keep the show afloat. Its most recent episode had just two million viewers .
"Whitney": Not even producer Chelsea Handler could save comedian "Whitney" Cummings from herself. After premiering in 2011, 2013 will be the show's final season.
"The New Normal": "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy apparently doesn't turn everything he touches into gold.
Also canceled were new shows: "Deception," " Animal Practice," " Do No Harm," and "Guys with Kids."
Not to mention, Thursday night staple "30 Rock" just had its final season and "The Office" is about to close its doors for good.
But, these shows are still safe: "Parks and Recreation," "Chicago Fire," "Law & Order: SVU," "Community," "Grimm," "Parenthood," "The Voice," "Celebrity Apprentice" and "Revolution."

"Happy Endings": A tragedy! The half-hour comedy was actually a brilliant show, just not enough people realized it. If you don't believe us, check out The Huffington Post's "32 reasons 'Happy Endings' is ah-mah-zing."
"Don't Trust the B--- in
ABC also canceled: "666 Park Avenue," "Body of Proof," "Malibu Country," "Red Widow," "The Family Tools," "Zero Hour," "Last Resort" and "How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)."
Plus, "Private Practice" just wrapped up its final season.
But the network did renew ratings favorites: "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," "Revenge," "Once Upon a Time," "Castle," "Modern Family," "Suburgatory," "The Middle," "The Neighbors," "Last Man Standing" and fan favorite "Nashville."
CBS renewed more than it canceled. Here are the goners:
"Rules of Engagement": After seven seasons on the air, the David Spade comedy about relationships is getting a divorce from CBS.
"CSI: NY": "CSI: NY" is done after nine seasons of getting increasingly lower ratings — making it one of the only flops from the super-successful franchise.

Breathing a sigh of relief: "Bones," "Glee (renewed for two seasons)," "The Following," "New Girl," "The Mindy Project," "Raising Hope," "The X Factor," "American Idol," "Kitchen Nightmares," "MasterChef" and "Hotel Hell."

"We tolerate black only or Indian only scholarships, why not white scholarships? Can you say hypocrite??"
"There is no shortage of minority only scholarshipsand no shoartage of minority organizations that do not give financial awards to other races. The Gates Foundation states in their letter to educators that they want minority students. Why doesn't someone go after the Gates Foundation?"
"Get rid of the Blacks only scholarships too. Then we can call it even."
Some non-racing stuff:
Petraeus email objected to
Critics have highlighted an email by then-State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland that expressed concern that any mention of prior warnings or the involvement of al-Qaida would give congressional Republicans ammunition to attack the administration in the weeks before the presidential election. Fighting terror was one of President Barack Obama's re-election strong points.
Some comments with the article:
"Let's follow the chain of events, shall we? Petraeus objects to changing of the memo. All of a sudden his extramarital affair becomes public and he resigns in November. Coincidence? Politics as usual. These guys have dirt on everybody! I also believe this was a reason for Hillary's untimely departure. Has to be!"
"Obama would do whatever he could to win this election. funny how all of the voting scandals have disappeared from the news--like the lady in Cicncinnati who voted 6 times for Obama. Or the districts that had ZERO votes for Romney--and what are the odds of that--why doesnt the news media go into those districts and ask if there is anyone there who can vouch that they voted for Romeny but their vote wssnt counted. duh... This administration is the most corrupt administration I have seen in my lifetime. amazing..."
"This clown got himself elected on lies and the tyranny of corrupt Liberal partisan attacks, supported by a further corrupt and unprofessional media, and the easily manipulated emotionally challenged low information voters destroying this country with their stupidity. VOTE IN 2014 and stop the leftist liberal Democrat party's destruction of our country."
Moms Working for Walmart Cry Foul This Mother’s Day
Though Walmart (NYSE:WMT) just reclaimed the title of top U.S. company on the Fortune 500 list, the company continues to get bad press from regulators, watchdog groups and its own employees. In fact, many of its full-time working moms will spend this Mother’s Day on duty at the retail mammoth’s many stores, receiving unsubstantial wages and hoping their next government assistance check arrives on time.
A Huffington Post report on
one mother’s struggles working for Walmart highlights
the chasm between its employees and the top executives at a company bringing in
$444 billion annually. The story of Charlene Fletcher, a
While Fletcher earns above the California minimum wage of $8 per hour, her $9.40/hr lands her squarely in the category of working poor (she earns less than $1,500 monthly after taxes). Stacked up against CEO Michael Duke’s annual take of $35 million a year, the moms working at Walmart this Mother’s Day have a reason to be disgruntled. However, it’s only one example of the proliferation of low-wage jobs in post-recession times…
Job data released over the past month reveals college-educated workers fared much better during and after the recession. At the same time, the middle-wage jobs (in which workers earn $14 to $21 per hour) largely disappeared, only to be replaced post-recession by jobs paying between $7.25 and $14 per hour. Many of the same jobs lost returned as lower paying jobs, while others disappeared entirely. Jobs for skilled workers have shown sluggish growth, while retail and food service jobs have increased.
Naturally, budget stores like Walmart and fast-food chains continued to sell during the recession, when cash-strapped families had little choice but to buy necessities at the lowest prices. The trend continues, as it always will for stores offering customers the best prices on goods. It is Walmart’s deals with suppliers and its ability to keep expenses low (by paying low wages and offering minimal benefits) that have made the company #1 on the Fortune 500 list.
IRS apologizes for targeting conservative groups
THE IRS VENDETTA AGAINST CONSERVATIVE GROUPS: THE NEW ENEMIES LIST
In part: "Think about the sheer number of
scandals we have seen in four years. Think of all the abuses of power we have
witnessed. We have seen the Attorney General dismiss charges at the sentencing
phase of Black Panther radicals who stood outside voting stations, intimidating
voters with billy clubs. We have seen guns pumped to
Mexican drug cartels while the Obama Administration blamed American gun
dealers. We have seen our government leave Americans to die in
And now, we are seeing our government admit to the use of the IRS to target conservative political groups and they hope to wash it away with a simple, “I’m sorry; it wasn’t political”?
IRS apologizes for targeting tea party groups. A firing offense?
Just some of the comments with the article:
"Jay Carney said the IRS is a separate entity- Jay, the IRS is part of the Treasury which reports to the Commander in Chief (Obama). What else do you don't know?"
"Bigger question: Who ordered this? Do not tell me that low level workers did this on their own....big lie! Issa has the ability to subpoena...do it! Those participating should be charged ......all the way to the top!"
"Who is surprised? Obama is on public record stating he would, "reward friends and punish enemies."
"Obama hired thousands
of more IRS agents at taxpayer expense to enforce compliance with Obamacare. It is reasonable to suggest he would order a
similar initiative as a means of intimidation toward any perceived antagonist
in any regard. His history as a community organizer is replete with a modus
operandi of extortion and intimidation. In
