Every Democratic senator up for re-election in 2014 voted with the president at least 90 percent of the time in 2013.

A fact to remember when Democrats make believe they oppose Obama in the coming election: Every Democratic senator up for re-election in 2014 voted with the president at least 90 percent of the time in 2013.

It also appears that Democrat support for Obama was higher when they controlled both houses of Congress, “prevailing on almost 97 percent of the votes in the two chambers on which [Obama] took a position in 2009 and almost 86 percent in 2010, when Democrats controlled both House and Senate.”

That was also when the Democrats shoved Obamacare down our throats.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

 
Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    Its time they pay for their transgressions, and too the rino’s who seem to want to help these same democrats save a very unpopular piece of legislation, just because its the law of the land, it is no wonder that congress and senate have such low poll numbers.

    Our immigration laws are also the laws of the land, but the administration is unwilling to enforce them. Nor is the Republican leadership willing to insist that the administration enforce them. Likewise, the marriage laws of many states are the laws of the land. None of this is surprising, given that the president, the vice president and much of Congress exhibit no reluctance to violate their oaths of office.

    Lawlessness begets lawlessness.
