Fast and Furious

Via Fox News

“The Justice Department has been less than forthcoming since day one, so the revisions here are hardly surprising, and the numbers will likely rise until the more than 1,000 guns that were allowed to fall into the hands of bad guys are recovered — most likely years down the road,” Grassley said in a statement released Thursday.

“What we’re still waiting for are the answers to the other questions the Attorney General failed to answer per our agreement. The cooperation of the Attorney General and his staff is needed if we’re ever going to get to the bottom of this disastrous policy and help the ATF and the department move forward.”

What bothers me the most about Fast and Furious is we know that people have been murdered by weapons involved n this program. We also know that the current administration and Justice department is in hip deep. Even with all this the MSM give the Obama administration a pass when in reality this has the potential of bring the administration down. I thought reporter wanted Pulitzer prizes, instead they want to play lapdog to the Marxist in D.C.
The fast and the furious case will make Watergate look like the third rate burglary it was if only some reporter would grow a pair, Thus goes for Rep Issa and Senotor Grassly

Australia circling the drain

(Fox News Radio/Todd Starnes) — Christians in Australia are accusing national education officials of “Christian cleansing” in response to pending changes in school books that would remove references to the birth of Jesus Christ.

The government would replace the terms BC, Before Christ, and AD, Anno Domini, with non-religious language. The new terms will be BCE (Before Common Era), BP (Before Present) and CE (Common Era).

A spokesman for the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority told The Herald Sun that the new terms were an increasingly common standard for the representation of dates.

Peter Jensen, the Archbishop of Sydney, told The Daily Telegraph that taking references to the birth of Jesus Christ out of school books was an “intellectually absurd attempt to write Christ out of human history.”

“It is absurd because the coming of Christ remains the centre point of dating and because the phrase ‘common era’ is meaningless and misleading,” he told the Sydney Daily Telegraph.

Fred Nile, a minister in New South Wales, told the newspaper it was “an absolute disgrace” and the “final insult” to Australian Christians.

The sales figures are out for the epic fail Chevy Volt,Chevrolet sold a whopping 308units in August.

I'm convinced that when the B-2 goes to the boneyard a B-52H will fly the crew home. Not bad for a jet last built in 1964.
