Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
"We face a hostile ideology global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose and insidious in method..." and warned about what he saw as unjustified government spending proposals and continued with a warning that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist... Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."Dwight D.

The Demacrat's have maded Honolulu the most expensive U.S. city

Honolulu is the most expensive U.S. city to do business, according to a new study by KPMG LLP.

The New York-based audit, tax and advisory firm ranked Honolulu most costly among 37 smaller North American cities with a population below 1 million. It had a cost index of 107.3, or 7.3 percent above the U.S. national baseline.

“Selecting the best site for a business operation requires balanced consideration of many factors, including business costs, business environment, personnel costs and quality-of-life issues,” said Hartley Powell, national leader for KPMG’s Global Location and Expansion Services practice.

KPMG’s report was based on 26 significant cost components including labor, taxes, real estate and utilities in 17 industries.

Following Honolulu was Anchorage, Alaska, with a cost index of 106.3.

Among larger cities, San Francisco ranked the most expensive place to do business in North America, with a cost index of 104.1, while Tampa, Fla., was the least-expensive place to do business in U.S. cities with populations of more than 2 million. It had a cost index of 96, representing business costs 4 percent below the U.S. national baseline.

The report evaluated business-operating costs in 112 cities in 10 countries. The benchmark cost index is the average of business costs in the four largest U.S. metropolitan areas: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth.
