At President Obama's first post-election news conference, he focused on the economy, responding to a reporter's question about the election outcome by saying "I've got one mandate. I have a mandate to help middle class families."

President Obama opened the wide-ranging news conference with a statement that his top priority has to be jobs, as the economy is in the first stages of a tenuous recovery. He said, "we face a very clear deadline" on jobs, taxes and the deficit, which "both parties agreed to," alluding to the so-called "fiscal cliff" of tax increases and budget cuts.

"There is only one way to solve these challenges, and that is to do it together," he said, also saying that he would meet with leaders from both parties in Congress before the end of the week.

Questions from reporters focused on the economy and the "fiscal cliff," comprehensive immigration reform, and the scandal involving former CIA director David Petraeus. Reporters also asked about the potential for Susan Rice to become the next Secretary of State, and about the death of four Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, among other topics.

Ben Feller, of the Associated Press, asked the President to confirm that no classified information was compromised in the scandal involving Retired Gen. David Petraeus. The President said that the investigation was ongoing, and that he had great respect for Gen. Petraeus's service to the country prior to his resignation.

Apollo Flight Controller 101

Apollo Flight Controller 101: Every console explained,

a reference to each station in the Apollo Mission Control room.

This DATA was obtained thank to by - Oct 31 2012, 9:45pm

Ars recently had the opportunity to spend some quality time touring the restored Apollo "Mission Control" room at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. We talked with Sy Liebergot, a retired NASA flight controller who took part in some of the most famous manned space flight missions of all time, including Apollo 11 and Apollo 13. The feature article "Going boldly: Behind the scenes at NASA's hallowed Mission Control Center" goes in depth on what "Mission Control" did during Apollo and how it all worked, but there just wasn't room to fit in detailed descriptions and diagrams of all of the different flight controller consoles—I'm no John Siracusa, after all!
But Ars readers love space, and there was so much extra information that I couldn't sit on it. So this is a station-by-station tour of Historical Mission Operations Control Room 2, or "MOCR 2." As mentioned in the feature, MOCR 2 was used for almost every Gemini and Apollo flight, and in the late 1990s was restored to its Apollo-era appearance. You can visit it if you're in Houston, but you won't get any closer than the glassed-in visitor gallery in the back, and that's just not close enough. Strap yourselves in and prepare for an up-close look at the MOCR consoles, Ars style.

The layout

For most of Project Apollo, MOCR 2 had a fixed layout. Each station handled a specific, related group of functions; some watched over the spacecraft's hardware, or its software, or its position in space, or over the crew itself. Here's how things were laid out for most of Project Apollo:

This is how I like to imagine Mitt Romney decides what he's going to say to the public each day. It's the only thing that makes sense to me.

Executive Decision



President Obama spoke at a campaign event in Denver, Colorado. He spoke about the previous night's presidential candidates debate, as well as the differences in his economic plan and Republican challenger Mitt Romney's.

A North Carolina pastor is making outrageous comments

A North Carolina pastor is under fire for making outrageous comments against gays, lesbians and the transgender community during a recent religious service when he suggested that they be herded into electrified fences until they die off.

“I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers,” Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina, says in a chilling description that sounds an awful lot like a concentration camp.

“Build a great, big, large fence — 150- or 100-mile long — put all the lesbians in there ... do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals, and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out."

"Feed 'em. And you know what, in a few years, they'll die out,” Worley says in a viral video uploaded onto YouTube. “Do you know why? They can't reproduce."

Critics have launched a Facebook page calling for “a PEACEFUL protest against Pastor Worley's bigoted and hate filled rhetoric,” a message on the site says.

On other social networking sites, many users have condemned the pastor’s speech. On Twitter, Ashley said, “I refuse to be friends with anyone who thinks this is okay … I don’t care how long we’ve been friends.”

ThinkProgress reported Wednesday that Worley said in a 1978 sermon that gays “40 years ago” would have been hung “from a white oak tree.”

The righteous indignation has reached such a point that even a church with a similar-sounding name – Providence Baptist Church in Charlotte about 30 miles away – has had to issue a press release to emphatically deny any affiliation with the Maiden church.

“In recent hours we have been incorrectly identified as the church in another town where hatred and violence have been advocated from the pulpit," the church says in a statement posted on its website. "Jesus preached a Gospel of love. So do we. Jesus preached that we love our neighbor, whether that neighbor is like us or not.”

President Obama spoke about the fiscal year 2013 federal budget in a keynote address at the annual Associated Press annual luncheon. In his remarks he criticized Republican presidential front runner Mitt Romney. He called the House Republican budget plan "radical" and "a Trojan Horse disguised as a deficit reduction plan." The Republican budget plan, approved by the House the previous week and embraced by Mr. Romney, cuts $5.3 trillion over the next decade through deeps cuts in spending and entitlements.

President Obama delivered two campaign speeches today in Vermont and Maine. He spoke about energy, the economy and the state of the presidential campaign.

No one has been able to explain to me why young men... and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.

On Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government
Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.
For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will post it on their wall, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .."

Now, what are you going to do about it? Read and delete, or work for reform? Share on the wall of EVERY congressman, representative, governor, the white house!!!!! Pass it around!!! Make calls, send fax's and email's...............
