U.S. Military Drones being hacked by insurgents, what else? Did you know there will be about 16ok Private contractors plus regular U.S. Troops by spring?

We're barely keeping our status as the only super power in  the world with the most advanced military and technology that human kind has ever known. So, who hacked into our drones that prowl the Sky's and kill terrorists to keep our country safe? Was it Aliens, the Russians, no it must of be the Chinese, wrong again its the insurgents themselves. You know; the guys who hate technology and live in mud huts and use mules for transportation, The insurgents with a $26 gadget bought probably from a radio shack who have been able to hack into our Predator drones and now they can see what the drones can see. Is this whole Afghanistan war becoming pointless? At this point the terrorist have the same technology as we do because they see what we can see. Wasn't that the point to watch these guys secretly so we can find where they go and then get them? Maybe Osama Bin Laden is laughing in his cave watching live feeds of the drone continuously passing over his cave. The best part about this lapse in security coding for the drones is the the U.S. Military has known about this since the Bosnian war in the 1990's. If the drones situation is not bad enough the latest news now coming out is about all the Private contractors the U.S. Government has employed over in Afghanistan. There will be another 56k private contractors going over with this newest surge. The total number of private contractors will increase to about 160k. The jobs that these contractors perform include the following but not all:

Hiring teams of contractors to perform electronic monitoring of related information.

Awarding $44.8 million contract to a Florida firm that provides trained dogs to be used in hot spots near borders with Pakistan

Contracting jobs for intelligence analyst services that include ‘collecting, analyzing and providing recommendations necessary for the government to produce and disseminate intelligence products in several subject areas.’

Contracting positions ‘Defense Logistics Agency’ which would provide distribution and warehousing services for US and NATO forces in the Kandahar area

In total we will have more then 100k U.S. troop plus 160k Private contractors, we have been there for 8 years Harmid Karzai said that he needs us there another ten years at least.I am not trying to be negative here but come on already enough is enough. When the Russians were there although under a lot different circumstances they did not have 260K troops plus NATO troops , plus UN troops and world support. The problem is we are doing just as good as they did and we know how that ended. First we should be ashamed that our drones are being hacked by insurgents,with the money we spend on the military compared to other domestic programs that need it a lot more, aliens should not be able to hack our drones never mind insurgents. If insurgents are hacking our technology what are the Chinese and the Russians doing to it. I think they have a bigger budget then $26 to figure it out. In My opinion What we should do in Afghanistan is send our troops to the border get the border on lock down. Get every drone we have flying over the Pakistan border region. We need radio stations and loud speaker broad casting telling the locals about rewards and per swaying them not to protect Al qaeda and the Taliban. We need to pay these locals so now they depend on us for money not the Taliban or Al Qaeda. We have to get Pakistan as hard as it would be with their political situation to put even more pressure on the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Howard Dean , has he gone Rogue on The Health Care Bill?

Now that The public option is gone and every other attempted form of it is too, what should we do? Scrap health care all together, throw our hands up and say forget it, well that's what Howard Dean is saying .Was this a wasted year of debate on a health care bill that was dead from the start? Maybe we  have to look at this different, like Franklin D. Roosevelt did with "The New Deal" and "The Second New Deal". Should we get something passed no matter what it looks like and improve on it over time. Roosevelt Created the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Social Security Administration to name a few, look how those two entities have changed since their inception over Seventy years ago. Maybe we have to take it on the chin for the future of our country and be the Guinea pigs for whatever we get. The last time we had an opportunity for health care reform on this scale was with President Bill Clinton in 1993. If we don't pass anything now when will we? Maybe another ten years maybe never , lets see what we can get now and work on it over time.If the health care bill does not pass now, you can "forget about it" because it will take at least another ten years if ever. How do you feel, should we pass something anything or kill the the health care bill altogether like Howard Dean wants to? How do you view Joe Lieberman a hero or a Villon?

Say it ain't so Joe

Is this getting ridiculous, or what?! Pretty much we are back to square one and it's getting worse. No public option , no Medicare buy in at age 55 , whats next? I really feel like a little brat and saying forget it all I don't want anything. So to sum it up we wont have a "public option" , the medicare buy in , the ability to shop for insurance out of state or to buy prescription drugs in Canada. What do we get; thirty million people who are not insured will now have health insurance. That is absolutely amazing and god bless all the new people who will be able to take better care of their health and have one less thing to worry about. With that being said it took a year to make this happen; the opt in , the opt out , the trigger , the medicare buy in and for what? I'm just wondering, did anyone ask Joe how he was leaning toward or what he thought about the public option months ago. If he said no public option no matter what months ago why did we waste so much time on it? We actually could of used some of the Republicans ideas like tort reform and cross state shopping for insurance plus adding the 30 million.

Harry Mitchell (D) and Ron Paul (R) are the new odd couple and we need to support them now. Do your job as a citizen let your voice be heard contact your Representative today!

Harry Mitchell and Ron Paul introduced bipartisan legislation to block 2009 Congressional pay raises. As you would imagine this is not getting a lot of traction in D.C. so that's where we come in. If you want to take some action and let congress feel a little pinch do your job and contact your congressmen. Mitchell said that unemployment has risen a whopping 42% between Sept and Dec. in his state of Arizona. I guess it would be a little hard for him to take a pay raise with those numbers so why don't other members of congress feel the same way. Paul and Mitchell introduced H.R. 5087 which would block the automatic pay increase act of 2008. If you feel that congressmen should be getting this pay raise please leaver your comments and tell us why. If you don't support the increase tell us why with your comments and then contact your congressmen and let him know before its to late. Tell him you support H.R. 5087 and you don't want the pay increase. Click green Link to to leave a comment. All U.S. government links are listed at the bottom of this blog for your easy access.

What is wrong with Joe Lieberman?

Joe Lieberman is really taking his political capital to the next level with threatening again with a filibuster. He is absolutely dead set against any type of "Public Option" he does not even want to hear it. Now with a work around for the public option situation to satisfy Sen. Lieberman , Harry Reid has been working on the medicare buy in at age 55. Hold your horses because Sen. Lieberman has a problem wit that too. He said it is going to add to much additional debt to the federal deficit. The CBO is expected to say that the new approach from Sen. Reid with the medicare buy in at age 55 is going to be Deficit neutral. The reason I am upset with Sen. Lieberman is he is in the insurance industry's pocket. Although I do not think Sen. Reid is the best Negotiator, he is making efforts to appease every one's concerns. Lieberman seems to just be putting up road blocks with no solutions other then no Health care bill at all. Why would Sen Lieberman be so opposed to opening up the insurance market to bring cost down? You think it could be because the insurance companies donate large sums of money to Sen. Lieberman? Do you think because the Insurance industry is a big employer and very important to the economy of Connecticut? So what do you think is it more important for Lieberman to side with the people who give him the most money for his campaigns or our country and health care for those who cannot afford it? If health care passes without Sen. Lieberman's help I guess he can say that he didn't help the country but stayed face with his money contributors. Pretty good Joe keep up the great work your doing a great job your a real Statesmen. Leave your comments below click the green link. Check out the links with more Joe Lieberman News.

Sarah Palin on Conan O'Brien show.

Watching Sarah Palin on the tonight show made me change my mind a little about her. For the first time I felt like she was being funny and I got it. She had great stage presence and looked confident saying her dialogue. I think this book tour has done a lot of help building her confidence and getting her used to the fast pace atmosphere of Washington D.C. politics. Check out the video leave a comment.

Is Houston gay about it's new gay mayor? Houston is now the largest U.S. city with a gay Mayor.

Annise Parker has become Houston Texas first gay Mayor. Ms. Parker won the majority of votes against Gene Locke a former city attorney with 53% of the vote. I am a little surprise I am not to familiar with the Houston area but I don't think they have a large gay community. Is the south changing , is this a trend or what's the real story. Is Ms. Parker just a good politician and we should treat it as that? Please leave your comments and relay any info you might know about the subject. Check out the link for some for info.
