Obama: More terrorists tried in civilian courts in second term

Did you say Jobs?

imageBack home here at the Words Mean Things Ranch, Santa Anna Obama winds have once again fanned the flames of class warfare, envy, and, most tragically, the death of decency in the use of our language.

Obama and his minions persist in touting their “Jobs” Bill, “Jobs” Program, “Jobs” Creation, cynical to the last, inevitably certain of the success of their deceit.

Liberal Media In Feeding Frenzy Over Possible Herman Cain Scandal

America’s mainstream media, ever on the look-out for a story (or unconfirmed rumor) with which to pummel any Republican, and most especially any black, conservative, is most surely in ‘salivate’ mode as moon- bat editors and reporters from coast-to-coast contemplate the potential devastation that might be visited on the campaign of Herman Cain who is simply the ‘wrong’ sort of black to suit their taste.

Cuba:  Peaceful human rights defenders continue facing brutal mob attacks

In the Eastern city of Guantanamo, the home of Niovis Rivera Guerra, (member of the Resistance and Democracy Movement), his wife, Yurilaidy Travieso and three young daughters, 13, 9 and 3 years old, was surrounded by patrol cars, military vehicles, and subjected to, at least, two days of brutal mob attacks (October 25-26, 2011) of around 400 people. Asphalt was thrown against the house, all the windows, as well as the door, were stoned and broken, the family received death threats, and Rivera Guerra was beaten and tear gassed. All this brutal violence was because the family displayed pro democracy and human rights posters in the front of their home. This is the fifth time in 2011, that the home of this activist is attacked. Several members of the Resistance and Democracy Movement were beaten and arrested when they tried to come to the aid of Niovis Rivera Guerra and his family: Hermis Figueras Ros, Francisco Osoria Claro, and the Adventist Pastor Raul Martinez Caraballo.
