One day after Pres. Obama promised on the campaign trail, “I will never turn Medicare into a voucher…” We now learn that the administration is moving 2 million seniors in 18 states to a mandatory voucher program.

Is Jerusalem the Capital of Israel or Not?

On September 6, 2012, in Uncategorized, by Dave

Recent debate over the location of the capital of Israel can be easily settled if one only follows the norms of acknowledging a capital.

 1.  The country declares its capital. This was done in 1950 by Israel. It declared Jerusalem as its capital.

 2.  When in doubt, refer to number 1.

 If clarification is still needed, perhaps this Google search will help you:

Yesterday a verbal vote had to be taken 3 times to even approach what sounded to many like a 50-50 proposition rather than the two thirds majority required by Democratic procedural rules to get language mentioning God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel placed back into the official Democratic platform. As if the controversy wasn’t in itself damaging enough to the party–that they had left, no, removed God from the language of the platform entirely and also declined to affirm Jerusalem as the capital of Israel more than once in recent weeks, the voice vote was another catastrophe because by many accounts they failed to actually get the two thirds vote required and the dissent of the nays was profoundly strong and when the resolution was passed anyway the stadium was filled shouts and boos. 

 

A story buried for a few years has resurfaced as of late. Reputable sources at the time who are now deceased said they heard Bill Clinton say to Ted Kennedy while on a golf course together, while trying to persuade Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president, “A few years ago this guy would be carrying our bags.” Had it been Rush Limbaugh the story would never have died the way it did for “America’s first black president.” Kennedy went on to endorse Barack Obama.
