Obama Leads Nation Towards Disaster on All Fronts
National defense slashes, economic stagnation, rising gasoline prices and campaign funding from Hollywood liberals
and the Wall Street he bailed out. This is getting serious, folks. It isn't just electric cars that nobody wants, solar
cell companies that go bankrupt after massive government backing, the attempt to interfere with First
Amendment religious freedom, socialized medicine and both the mal-treatment of our foreign
friends and kissing the ring fingers of half the terrorists in the Middle East.
Obama weighing up to 80% cut in U.S. nukes... Fewer warheads than China!

(A campaign bailout from the banks he and Bush bailed out?)
We can give Taiwan to China and South Korea to North Korea to keep them quiet for a while, but if two more
major sources of foreign oil follow Iran's moves, and he continues to block the pipeline from Canada (and stop
oil shale development while the EPA squeezes out coal) -- it's adios muchacho to the economy. and hello to
Carter-sized gas station lines, another doubling of food stamp distribution and a skyrocketing national debt..
Do not re-elect any Democrat U.S. Senators this fall. We may need a tea party Senate for a double impeachment
to survive if this guy scrapes out a win in 2012.

January, 2012 -- Janus, from which we get the name of our first month, was the

Man, was the first true human, even if the other LL found the wrong one.

Atlas Shrugged Movie is Raising Cain
2011 -- Ayn Rand’s epic novel, Atlas Shrugged,
is finally coming to the silver screen. Whether you’ve read the book or
not, you won’t want to miss Part 1 of the film, which debuts around the
country the weekend of April 15-16-17th. So far, the nearest
confirmed theaters are in the Seattle area. You can help bring it to
Portland, or a theater in your city, by “Demanding” it at the link
below. The book was published in 1957, but the producers of the film
have wisely set it in 2016. This way, Americans can see what’s coming
if we don’t turn around the collectivist government in Washington.
It’s a great story, and a powerful warning. Don’t miss

Held over from September: 2 From Rush: ObamaCare is Threatened by Pariah Judge (x-links)
Limbaugh says that this sudden upgrade of the famous judge's intellect in media which formerly treated
Thomas as moronic is a kind of storm warning pointing the journalistic Left at a critical target. Also part
of this has to do with the man's wife -- who might provide an opportunity to force recusal.

���OMED: Many early pieces in Oregon Magazine were written in a version of Netscape
Composer that in modern browsers produces black diamonds with reversed question
marks inside them. These are almost always quotation marks, apostrophes or dashes.
When you see text that contains those black diamonds, it means I haven't gotten around
to repairing the problem, yet.
Lastly, all of our early work URL suffixes were "htm." When the computer gods decided
to change those to "html," problems arose, but changing the suffix from one to the other
may make the page you want available.
Final Thought: If you think this magazine is a graphic mess, you should see my garage. (LL)
