The teenagers who speak in this video belong to http://www.im2moro.org. These young people realize that if they don’t stand up and speak out for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness today, they will be living in a very different America tomorrow.
I never though the Democrats and the Obama could get any lower than they have already gone. But today we see that there is not depths of depravity that they are not willing to cross.
So your first time voting is being compared to loosing your virginity
Utterly sickening. The Democrats only think women care about Birth control and are walking vaginas. Talk about #WarOnWomen
This campaign has become a joke in itself. Have the OFA been taken over by HS kids????

We got 12 more days until we vote out the WON. This has been a very trying time for the country and we cannot re elect the WON back into the White House. He has been a disaster from the beginning. The economy is still in shambles and his #1 priority was the take over the Healthcare Industry. Which will only slow it down even more than it is now. And the Democrats forced it down out throats without even reading the monstrosity of a bill.
And who can Forget the Porkulus Bill that gave money to his lackeys in the unions. Or the Auto Bail Out which pretty much made contracts in America Null and Void.
We have 12 more days, and we have someone watching us. We will not let him down. We got this
Like many television viewers, I could not resist watching the first episodes of “The Apprentice”, which cemented Donald Trump in the popular imagination as THE mega business celebrity. And who can forget the famous “You’re Fired!” moments? Of course, that was entertainment, and one suspects that even the fired walked away with a fascinating experience and expanded career horizons.
The American public is now going through a much more serious round of “You’re Fired” events, and there is nothing entertaining about it. Three years into the so-called economic recovery, downsizing and layoffs remain a way of life. Indeed, they are increasing. Bloomberg reports that layoffs are at a two year high, as corporations shed jobs at a brisk clip in response to sluggish demand. The statistics are depressing:
North American companies have announced plans to eliminate more than 62,600 positions at home and abroad since Sept. 1, the biggest two-month drop since the start of 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Firings total 158,100 so far this year, more than the 129,000 job cuts in the same period in 2011.
And they are not confined to a couple of troubled sectors. The layoffs are occurring in multiple industries and the diversity of the names is striking: Advanced Micro Devices, Cummins Engine, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Hewlett-Packard and Colgate-Palmolive have all recently announced cuts.
As big business downsizes, small business must step up to the plate to provide badly needed employment. But small business is facing the most challenging regulatory environment in a generation, and risks being swallowed by the whale of Obamacare.
At some point, the citizens have to ask themselves: “Have we been sold a bill of goods about the effectiveness of the stimulus and quantitative easing? Have the chattering classes just lost it? Is this economic recovery real?” The prudent voter knows the answer to these questions. It is high time to do to the current leadership in Washington what Mr. Trump did to many a hapless apprentice. But it’s about survival now, not entertainment
Business Insider – LONDON, Oct 25 (Reuters) – Ford will announce on Thursday that it is closing its van factory at Southampton, ending more than a century of vehicle production by the company in Britain, trade unionists and a source close to the U.S. car maker said.
The move, which could see some 530 British jobs cut and leave Ford producing only engines and other parts at its remaining plants in the country, is designed to stem losses in Europe by slashing fixed costs at underused manufacturing sites.
It comes a day after Ford said it would shut its 48-year-old Genk plant in Belgium by 2014, with the loss of 4,300 jobs, as part of a wide-ranging restructuring programme.
Fox Business – The U.S. oil and natural-gas rush will add 1.7 million jobs this year at wages on average of about $35 an hour, “dramatically higher” than the average $23 an hour for other jobs in the economy, says consultant IHS in a new report.
IHS also forecasts the number of U.S. jobs in this booming industry will swell to 2.5 million by 2015, and to nearly 3.5 million jobs in 2035, noting this will be “high-quality and high-paying” work paying more than manufacturing jobs.
And it’s not just jobs working on oil rigs. The U.S. oil and gas industry is creating onshore manufacturing jobs to make, say, drilling equipment, as well as computer-technology services for things like seismic assays, and legal and consulting jobs. To read the report, click here.
And IHS forecasts unconventional oil and gas will add $237 billion to U.S. GDP in 2012, increasing to $475 billion in 2035.
Emperor penguins rocket toward an exit hole in the ice in the winning picture of the 2012 Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, announced last Wednesday.
To get the shot—taken in Antarctica’s Ross Sea for a new National Geographic article—photographer Paul Nicklen used polar survival skills he’d learned as a child among the Inuit on Canada’s Baffin Island. Nicklen began by lowering himself through a hole in the ice and breathed through a snorkel while waiting for the penguins to return from foraging.
“They soared underwater like fighter jets in a dogfight,” Nicklen told National Geographic’s Luna Shyr. “Then they’d fly out, land, push down with their bill, and stand up, going back to that slow, waddling bird. It was a privilege to see.” (Get more behind-the-scenes details.)
In a statement, competition judge David Doubilet said “Bubble-Jetting Penguins”—which also took top honors in the Underwater Worlds category—”draws us in for a glimpse of the emperor penguin’s private world at the end of the Earth. I love this image, because it shows perfectly organized, infinite chaos. My eyes linger over it trying to absorb everything that’s going on here.” (See more emperor penguin pictures by Paul Nicklen.)
Now in its 48th year, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is an “international showcase for the very best nature photography,” according to the website for the contest, run by London’s Natural History Museum and Wildlife magazine.
Each year an international jury of photographers judges tens of thousands of entries in 18 categories.
Eric Hosking Portfolio Award
Vladimir Medvedev was driving through Canada’s Jasper National Park when he spotted a red deer stag lying in the grass by the highway. The photographer pulled over and swiftly positioned his tripod and snapped this picture just as a truck thundered by.
After taking the picture, Medvedev left as quickly as possible to ensure the deer’s peace. “The stag may have been inconspicuous, but I wasn’t,” he said in a statement. “As long as I stayed there, he was no longer invisible. So I left straight away, so as not to betray his presence.”
The shot, titled “Life in the Border Zones,” won Medvedev the Eric Hosking Portfolio Award, intended for photographers aged 18 to 26 who submit portfolios of their best work.
Commended, World in Our Hands Award
“It was sobering to think how many sharks had been killed to produce this pile of fins for a soup that isn’t even healthy,” photographer Paul Hilton said in a statement about his picture, titled “The End of Sharks.” The image was a runner-up for the World in Our Hands Award, focused on the “relationship between people and the environment.”
An increasingly popular dish among the middle-class in China, shark-fin soup is responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of sharks annually, scientists say. Many sharks are taken solely for their fins and then thrown back in the ocean, where it takes several hours for the fish to die.
