Unfair: France Shoots Down Millionaire Tax

For those of you who studied history at all, you would know that our revolution and our constitution was influenced heavily by the French. As you may remember, France was our biggest ally during the revolutionary war, and French thinkers are what influenced our founding fathers.

Flash forward to present. France's Supreme Court has recently voted down a bill by Francois Hollande to put a large tax increase on millionaires, calling it unfair and unconstitutional. This is just like that major millionaire taxes Obama and the Democratic Party here have proposed and are trying to enact. So if it is unconstitutional in the country that influenced us (and happens to be much more socialist), wouldn't it be so here as we'll? It is very probably that Boehner and other republicans will reference this in future debates as evidence of its unfairness and it's unconstitutionality. So for now, wealthy business owners may breath easy!

Carney Confirms Attack on Guns

Jay Carney in a press conference that President Obama will be looking at implementing new gun laws. Specific examples given are banning "assault" weapons, high capacity clips, and gun show laws. Let us remember that the 2nd amendment was established to allow Americans to defend themselves and fight off oppression. In a time of invasion or civil war, "assault" weapons and high capacity clips are exactly what we would need. Only time will show what more will come from Obama's "assault" on the constitution.

Obama in Sandy Hook: Gun Control

Just seconds ago Barack Obama finished his speech at Sandy Hook, the site of the mass shooting this week in Newtown, CN. In this speech he said he and law enforcement would take "whatever steps possible" to prevent attacks like this from happening again. He noted this is the forth mass shooting during his presidency and it would not be tolerated. This is a direct assault at shootings in any form meaning that it is very possible that he could be making presidential orders this week banning or limiting the use of guns.

NATO Vs. Syria: An Issue of the Right Thing

As we look at the situation in Syria, many of us remember vividly the situation of similar proportions that happened in Libya as Muammar Gaddafi started slaughtering his own people. It was because of this that NATO stepped in and created a no fly zone over the entire country, yet for the same reasons refuses to get involved in Syria. Just a short while ago though, a Turkish aircraft was shot down by Syria. Turkey, being a member of NATO, may be the final straw in the question of whether or not to aid the rebels of Syria, yet there is many options.

So far western powers have imposed sanctions of Syria, attacking their financial base, yet we have seen no significant results of this. The actions we take must show Syria that we are serious and will attack them politically as well. One such option is the recognition of Israel's control of the Golan Heights, and Lebanon's control of the North Lebanon border villages disputed between Lebanon and Syria. This action would be a direct blow to the face for the Syrian regime, saying if they are not responsible enough to step down, then they are not responsible enough to control that land.

Addition response could be actions just below arming the rebels. Providing bullet proof vests, helmets, and armored personnel carriers could significantly reduce rebel casualties or civilian life. Yet while some may claim that is the same as weapons, it is just an act of human compassion for a group of people struggling to become free from a regime that only cares about power.

The coming week is the only thing that will tell what the chosen outcome will be, and that will no doubt mean some kind of action from NATO. I personally just hope Bashar al-Assad is ready to pay for the atrocities he has committed, and additionally hope we will have the wisdom to make the right choices concerning the matter.

Obama Admits to waiting on re-election before folding to Russia!!!

From Washington Times:

SEOUL — Unaware that a microphone was recording him, President Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Monday for breathing room until after Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign to negotiate on missile defense.

“On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space,” Mr. Obama told Mr. Medvedev at the end of their 90-minute meeting, apparently referring to incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mr. Medvedev replied, “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”

“This is my last election,” Mr. Obama said. “After my election, I have more flexibility.”

The Russian leader responded, “I understand. I transmit this information to Vladimir.”

The exchange was picked up by microphone of a Russian reporter as journalists were allowed into the meeting room for remarks by the two leaders. It was first reported by ABC News, which said it verified the conversation. A Washington Times reporter heard a portion of the tape that begins with Mr. Obama saying, “This is my last election.”

The two leaders are in Seoul for a nuclear security summit involving the heads of more than 50 nations. Mr. Obama and Mr. Medvedev were huddling close together in their respective chairs when the conversation took place.

White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, who attended the meeting, at first said he didn’t hear the exchange and couldn’t comment on it. Within an hour, however, Mr. Rhodes issued a statement via email that said the U.S. “is committed to implementing our missile defense system, which we’ve repeatedly said is not aimed at Russia.”

“However, given the longstanding difference between the U.S. and Russia on this issue, it will take time and technical work before we can try to reach an agreement,” Mr. Rhodes said. “Since 2012 is an election year in both countries, with an election and leadership transition in Russia and an election in the United States, it is clearly not a year in which we are going to achieve a breakthrough. Therefore, President Obama and President Medvedev agreed that it was best to instruct our technical experts to do the work of better understanding our respective positions, providing space for continued discussions on missile defense cooperation going forward.”

The image of Mr. Obama putting off a difficult national security question due to re-election concerns is the opposite of what the White House intended for this trip. Mr. Obama’s first event upon landing in Korea on Sunday was to visit the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea for a photo-op of him gazing across no-man’s land at a forward Army observation post.

Mr. Medvedev told reporters that he believes missile defense talks between the two countries “could be more active.”

“I believe we still have time; time hasn’t run out,” Mr. Medvedev said. “And now we need to discuss and cooperate on various aspects on European missile defense. Now, in my view, time has come for discussions between technical aspects and, of course, we remain at our own positions, both the United States and Russian Federation.”

When he knew he was speaking for the microphones, Mr. Obama said only, “We’ve got more work to do between our two countries. Dmitry identified some areas of continued friction — missile defense being an example. And what we’ve agreed to is to make sure that our teams, at a technical level, are in discussions about how some of these issues can be resolved.”

The U.S. and its NATO allies are pursuing a missile defense shield, while Russia objects that it would compromise its security. Mr. Rhodes said the U.S. has continuously told the Russians that the shield is not being developed as a defense against Russia, and that the two nations should move forward on a broad range of nuclear weapons issues rather than bog down over the shield issue.

Mitt Romney for President!

We at Overworld Magazine have searched for a candidate for President that has knowledge of both business and politics, that shows steady beliefs, and can beat President Obama, as he has spent far too much money and continues to do so. Therefore we have chosen to endorse Mitt Romney as President of the United States of America.
Mr. Romney has executive experience as the former Governor of Massachusetts, and experience leading large companies... Which is essentially what the US economy is. Many have attacked him for "flip-flopping" but he is the ONLY candidate to stay so true to his faith that he has served as a missionary not to mention staying true to his wife for so long, and on political issues he has held true to his beliefs as well. Within the timeline of the 2012 election Willard Mitt Romney has also been attacked for not being conservative enough, yet in 2008 was seen as too conservative! We at Overworld Magazine feel that Mr.Romney would make a very good President, and choose to show him our complete support.

Our endorsement of Mitt Romney has additionally been seconded by Mosheh Thezion, another candidate for President, a sting conservative, and a good Christian, stating:
"It is my hope and wish that he have to wisdom to be able to hear good
advice, in comparison to the endless barrage of advice he probably
receives from so many others.
My advice, for the most part can be found in my own platform...  and
should provide the evidence for its worth, for those who can read.
My concern is and has always been, helping those with power do well, and
by that I mean, solve our nations and worlds major problems.
I do not have to be in power to help provide those solutions."
