Obama listens to a question in Seoul, South Korea, Sunday, March 25.
Obama's executive order, “National Defense Resources Preparedness,”
issued on March 16, essentially "states that, in case of a war
or national emergency, the federal government has the authority
to take over almost every aspect of American society," writes columnist Jeffrey T. Kuhner.

Which begs the question: Would that tempt Mr. Obama to claim a state of emergency and thereby implement his executive order? No one knows the answer. And we shouldn’t have to find out. The president does not — and should not - have the authority to subordinate the entire private economy to the government, especially without the consent of Congress and the American people. It is national socialism masquerading as military security.
This is why conservatives — those who are serious about defending our constitutional republic - should demand that the executive order be repealed immediately. Liberals argue that President Clinton issued a nearly identical mandate. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the first national defense resources preparedness order, which has been amended by successive presidents, including George W. Bush. Hence, according to the progressive left, if it was good enough for FDR, Mr. Clinton and Mr. Bush, why not Mr. Obama?
The answer is simple: Because the Constitution matters — or at least it should. For more than 70 years, liberal Democrats and corporatist Republicans have been slowly dismantling the old republic, imposing a creeping social democracy. The Founding Fathers’ vision of limited government and federalism has been replaced by a new ruling class. FDR, Mr. Clinton, Mr. Bush — all of them were militarists expanding the size and scope of government. They were Wilsonian globalists, and they shamelessly violated civil liberties. FDR was the worst, by forcing Japanese-Americans into internment camps.
Mr. Obama’s executive order represents the culmination of the welfare-warfare state. He is walking in the footsteps of his predecessors, those who enabled the rise of the imperial presidency. And it leads to only one tragic end: the gradual deterioration of our democracy.

Sanyo batteries recharge 1500 times. Energizer, Duracell, and Rayovac charge hundreds of times.
A $25 order will get free shipping.
I’ve had Sanyo AA and AAA batteries for several months now, and I like them.
I’ve also noticed that they are a little larger in diameter than Energizer batteries.
I use them in my flashlight, mouse, camera, et cetera. They last a long time without recharging in the flashlight, mouse, and camera.
Tea Tree Oil
I purchased 1 oz. of Tea Tree oil for about $6.
Just a little dab, will do ya.
I had an ear canal infection about January 10. As of February 16, it’s completely cured.
Vitamin C is a natural antibiotic, and I used a lot of vitamin C during that time. I’m not talking pills, I’m talking clementine's, strawberries, broccoli, cauliflower, et cetera.
I used an ear syringe to flush out the ear canal, and I used hydrogen peroxide.
I put hydrogen peroxide soaked cotton balls inside my ear to prevent germs, etc. from getting onto my pillow and bed.
I was concerned about gangrene. If blood circulation is cut off, gangrene can result.
I also used “sweet oil” in my ear canal.
Getting back to Tea Tree Oil: They advertise that it is antibiotic, anti-fungus, and anti-virus. I applied it to various areas of my body, and it’s effective as far as I’m concerned.
