Via NBC ~ Exclusive: Turkish PM Erdogan: Syria has crossed red line, used chemical weapons – World News

Red Line? What Red Line? I don’t see any Red Line.

We are an international joke.

From the Article:

Turkey’s prime minister is charging that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against its people and has called on the U.S. to take stronger action, he told NBC News’ Ann Curry in an exclusive interview Thursday.


“It is clear the regime has used chemical weapons and missiles,” Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.


Erdogan gave no specifics about when and where the weapons were allegedly used, but he said he believes President Obama’s “red line” for the U.S. in deciding whether to take action has been crossed.

Flash Mobs: Performing CHRISTmas (VIDEOS)

As conservatives we must take back the culture. One way to do that is to literally stand up and perform our values.

As moving as these video are they also provide a way forward and possible strategy for political conservatives. The videos both begin with an individual taking a stand by raising their voice, which then allows other individuals to join in. Some of those people are part of the flash mob, but some are not, and others gain comfort and solace just from seeing the demonstration of faith and belief.  The videos are also designed to be shared via YouTube so that the message can reach father over time and space than the incident in that mall on that day.

We must find similar ways to perform our traditional American values in public and give people an opportunity to see that they are not alone.

The Amazing Transformation of a Guy Who Didn’t Give Up! (VIDEO)

This video is an amazing testament to the human spirit. I also see it as something that can give hope to those of us who think our best days as a country are behind us. We may have let the muscles of liberty atrophy to the point where we feel we can no longer walk without the braces or crutches of government assistance. However, if we are willing to strive for a better future, one clearly awaits us. It won’t be easy, nothing worth doing ever is, but it is worth the effort.

Enjoy the video.
