Kokomo — Feds must de-fund Planned Parenthood

I am wondering why the Kokomo Tribune decided to print such an important article and hide it down in the NEWS OF THE WEIRD!

“A better reason to de-fund Planned Parenthood: The organization has survived a controversial de-funding campaign over its limited [LIMITED?] abortion program, but its Washington state chapter, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, began a quixotic safe-sex campaign in February in which thousands of condoms were distributed with scannable bar-codes. The plan was that users would automatically register information about their locations during sex, and, if the users chose, other information about the particular sexual experience they just had ...”

And this is what OUR tax dollars and money borrowed from China are going for? No wonder we have such a huge deficit!

The U.S. government definitely needs to de-fund Planned Parenthood!

‘Audacity of Deceit’ unveils secret agenda

I just started a rather chilling book. You will soon learn just how chilling, should you choose to read it too.

The book, penned by Brad O’Leary, president of ATI-News.com, is a warts-and-all look at Barack H. Obama, and from what I have read thus far, there is no shortage of warts.

The book titled “The Audacity of Deceit” paints a rather unflattering portrait of our current president.

Mr. O’Leary, in the dust-jacket notes, states the following points of Mr. Obama’s agenda:

(1) Blocked emergency-related aid for babies who survived abortion.

(2) Plans to ban the use of firearms by law-abiding citizens for self-defense.

(3) Would raise tax rates to a Hoover-like 60 percent.

(4) Will transform the U.S. Treasury into the United Nations’ ATM.

(5) Wants fuel prices high and farmland taken out of production.

These five points I’ve cited are just the tip of the iceberg; the story runs deeper and should be sufficient cause for a closer look at Mr. Obama and his record. For additional information, visit

Since Election Day is Nov. 6, the time to arm oneself with the facts is NOW.
