The Unconscionable Clause

Front Page Magazine online has a eye-opening piece on just how far President Obama is taking the healthcare system down the road of no return and taking away a doctors right to refuse to perform an abortion.

Founder and future President James Madison, Jr. wrote in FEDERALIST # 45:
"The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce...The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State."
We've come a long long way from there baby... to the point of restricting ones personal beliefs and religious beliefs it appears.

"Is there not the right to refuse to perform an abortion?
There are analogies. Let us note a dramatic one. A prison guard who does not believe in the death penalty has the right to decline assignment to activate the electric chair."
Obama is taking away that same right for doctors and nurses that do not believe in abortion...

"The Obama administration and Congress are moving quickly to deny a medical provider the comparable right. By a 56-41 vote, the United States Senate has defeated an amendment to legislation which would have sustained the right of a physician or other person to decline to abort a baby if federal taxpayer funds or the long arm of the feds were involved in the treatment.

Sixteen senators claiming to be Roman Catholic, 15 Democrats and one Republican, voted against the conscience clause. Nine such Senators, eight Republicans and one Democrat, voted for the conscience clause.
Obama administration is racking up quite a record on aborting babies....
"It reversed the so-called Mexico City Policy, which precluded usage of American taxpayers’ money by international organizations to provide abortions.
It repealed embryonic-stem-cell research restrictions.
It championed funding by American taxpayers of $ 50 million to the United Nations Population Fund, which has supported cruel aspects of Chinese population control procedures.
Perhaps most dramatically of all, the President nominated, and the Senate confirmed, that conspicuous friend of abortion, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, to be Secretary of Health and Human Services, a new dimension for the camel-in-the-tent riddle."
Whatever the founding fathers might have thought about abortion, they would have been very disappointed in how the federal government has steamrolled over states rights and personal rights.

Wellington Lake Not What it Used to Be

We went camping last weekend to a place we first found in the mid 1980's. We hadn't been there in about 5 years since we had been living in Oklahoma, so the trip was highly anticipated and as such... highly disappointing.

Wellington Lake is a beautiful place located just south of the town of Bailey Colorado, off HWY 285 about 12 miles. But camping there nowadays is like camping in my small backyard without any fences between me and the neighbors and the neighbors are all camping in their yards too... YIKES!

In the "old days" lol, it was a secluded spot few knew about... mostly locals in the Bailey Conifer area. I recall taking my daughter's entire softball team including parents there in the mid 1990's and spent less than me and my wife and son spent this past weekend.

In the past few years Castle Mtn Recreation decided to double or triple the number of campsites, double or triple the prices and nickle and dime you to death in between. It cost us $55 for two people for two nights including fishing... not including the $25 of firewood I had to buy because it's against the rules to bring wood in (pine beetles) etc. The couple in front of me in line.... yes I said line, to pay was charged $88 just for the fishing fee as they had like 5 kids... holy crap.

They now have more rules than they do fish in the lake, like campfires completely out by 10pm, they lock the gate at 8:30 pm and no moving the fire rings dammit!

On Sunday my son was unable to get to the water to throw out a line without doing it from the middle of someone's camp or on top of other fishermen (and fishergals), it was woodstock.

In my opinion they have ruined this once great camping spot. Too many campsites, too many people for the water frontage access and too many rules (probably from having too many people).

So... if you are in Colorado and want a beautiful place to camp... Wellington Lake is that for sure, but don't go on the weekend. It's like being at the mall.

However, those of you reading this in Oklahoma can still enjoy the beauty and low cost of Lake Tenkiller... my favorite place in Oklahoma.

Smalley, aka Franken, Wins Minnesota Supreme Court Ruling

In what might be the ultimate mockery and insult to politics of all time, the Minnesota Supremes ruled for Stuart Smalley, aka Al Franken, to be certified as the winner of the state's long-running Senate race over Republican incumbent Norm Coleman.

Smalley, aka Franken, is best known for his Saturday Night Live appearances in "Daily Affirmation with Stuart Smalley" while Franken is best known for helping start the failing and scandal ridden Air America AM Radio "network" as an attempt at fighting back against Rush Limbaugh and conservative talk radio.
His Sundance Channel Cable TV broadcasts of the Air America looked more like the SNL skits about NPR than the serious political force it was claimed to be.
Wiki- "Stuart is a member of many (sometimes fictional) twelve-step groups, including Overeaters Anonymous, Children of Alcoholic Parents Anonymous, and Children of Rageaholic Parents Anonymous. He is an effeminate man with a perfectly coiffed bleached-blonde hairdo, who regularly wears a yellow button down shirt with a powder blue cardigan."
Franken is a member of the Hollywood elite that feel guilty for their undeserved success and therefore want the rest of us to pay it back by giving it all to the so-called "poor" that Democrats like Smalley, aka Franken, never actually help.

Wiki-"Stuart is quick to point out that he is not a trained therapist. However, he does his misguided best to help his on-air guests (very often celebrities) to work out what he wrongly perceives to be their problems. In fact, Smalley often projects his own problems onto others; thus he will attempt to solve an issue that is not really there. (For example, in what many believe may have been the most amusing Smalley skit, he tried to help Michael Jordan resolve nonexistent doubts about his basketball-playing ability."
As US Senator Smalley, aka Franken, will do his part to "fix" problems that don't actually exist and "solve and issue that is not really there" in true Democrat(ic) fashion... like global warming, the financial crisis, healthcare, gay marriage and saving the endangered Minnesota fruitnut fly and many many more.

If you like your hypocritical leftwing wacko Hollywood environmentalist nutjobs as crazy as a loon... then Smally, aka Franken, is your guy.

The Sotomayor Pattern of Racism and Bias

The Heritage Foundation has this excellent piece...

The Sotomayor Pattern

"Yesterday’s Supreme Court opinion in Ricci, the New Haven firefighters case, provides a window to what will inevitably be a significant line of questioning in Judge Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings. After all, Judge Sotomayor not only reached the wrong decision in this case, allowing overt racial discrimination in protection of what were essentially soft racial quotas, but she did so in a dismissive one-paragraph opinion which seemed calculated to bury the case from future review. Both her dismissive treatment of important rights in this and a prominent Second Amendment case, and the apparent bias that these cases display will likely be fertile ground for questions in her confirmation hearings."

We can only "hope" for questions during the hearings...

Regrettably, Sotomayor has demonstrated a pattern of failing to grapple with questions of exceptional importance.
In her opinion in Maloney v. Cuomo, in which she found that the Second Amendment does not apply to the states, she tersely declared that a state statute restricting possession of weapons does implicate a fundamental right—the full consideration of which was measured in a handful of words. Like in the firefighters case, she concluded this without even grappling with the arguments–indeed without any explanation whatsoever.
Adding it up...

This is all the more troubling because of her statements embracing personal bias. In the very same speech where she issued the well-calculated and well-quoted assertion about the superior judgment of wise Latina women, she questioned whether it is possible for judges to overcome personal sympathies or biases “in all or even in most cases.” She even seemed to think that ruling based upon these biases is somehow patriotic: “I wonder whether by ignoring our differences as women or men of color we do a disservice both to the law and society.”

And the money quote...
"Given these statements embracing bias, and her embarrassingly inadequate judicial treatment of both the firefighters case and the Second Amendment case, Senators taking up her nomination on July 13 will necessarily need to explore whether her short shrift treatment of serious statutory and constitutional issues in these cases is a reflection of her own biases, or whether, on the brighter side, it is simply an indication of incompetent judging."

Call it what it is: "Obama's Cap and Tax Tax & Trade and Tax Tax"

We should have a law requiring any new laws that include a tax increase in them are required to have the word "tax" in the title of the bill.
Honesty in advertising?

Naming games like "Cap & Trade" which is a tax increase on your energy bills should be outlawed.
The Cap and Trade Tax will mean a tax increase on your natural gas or propane, on your electricity and on your gasoline or diesel with no evidence that it will have any positive impact whatsoever on the climate or the planet or the environment.

But it doesn't stop there.
Imagine a tax on the very element all life on this planet is based on.
Carbon. There ya' go.... bingo... errr rather Jackpot!

Additionally, CO2 has been deemed by the US government to be a dangerous and hazardous gas in spite of it being a naturally occurring substance that all breathing creatures on earth exhales about once per second or so... and bubbles up from all the ocean floors... and all plant life must have it (CO2) to survive just as we need oxygen from the plants.

But CO2 is suddenly "bad medicine" and the US government is going to tax it out of existence.... to save the planet of course. Then later, the US government can rush back in to save the day and mandate increased CO2 output to save the planet from a lack of CO2 when levels naturally ebb and flow as they do.
What a scam this global warming hoax has turned into.

Tax increases from the Cap and Trade Tax on businesses will also drive up the cost of virtually everything we buy.... or lease... or rent... or look at.

Call it what it is The Cap and Tax Tax and Trade and Tax Tax.

The gory details below....

The Heritage Foundation.org - "Beware of Cap and Trade Climate Bills"

"A study by Charles River Associates puts the cost (in terms of reduced household spending per year) of S. 2191 at $800 to $1,300 per household by 2015, rising to $1,500 to $2,500 by 2050.[2] Electricity prices could jump by 36 to 65 percent by 2015 and 80 to 125 percent by 2050.[3] No analysis has been done on the impact of S. 2191 on gasoline prices, but an Environmental Protection Agency study of a less stringent cap and trade bill estimates impacts of 26 cents per gallon by 2030 and 68 cents by 2050.[4]

Even these cost projections may underestimate the true costs, because they assume no unpleasant surprises. But the world has already witnessed many unpleasant surprises with Europe's ongoing efforts to impose a cap and trade program."

Institute For Energy Research - "Cap and Trade is Bad" pdf or html

"The details of cap-and-trade become complicated, but in the final analysis it is a stealth tax on energy. Wherever these schemes to limit greenhouse gases have been tried, they have failed. This is the reality. Cap-and-trade may look good on paper, but in practice it will impose massive costs for dubious environmental gain. Cap-and-trade is the last thing the U.S. economy needs in the midst of a serious recession, or any other time for that matter."

NewsOK.com- "Cap and Trade Bad Deal For US"

"Various estimates say it would cost the economy $9.4 trillion by 2035. A CRA International study found 3.2 million jobs would be lost by 2025, even with new "green” jobs. The same study showed the average U.S. household’s purchasing power would drop by $2,127 by 2030.

Pelosi & Co. want to increase the cost of fossil-fuel use so Americans will use less of it. The economy will be saddled, jobs will be lost and Americans’ standard of living will slide."

Associated Content Business News- "Cap and Trade Will Cost Americans"

"Cap and Trade and Obama's 'Direct Deposit' into Few Bank Accounts from Your Bank Account"

If Obama administration does succeed in its attempt to pass the bill through the Senate, every American household will be see its energy costs rise by over $22,800 from 2012-2035, as evident in an extensive research conducted by "The Heritage Foundation". "The Heritage Foundation" research revealed that our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will be hit with a loss of $9.6 trillion dollars, destroying 2.5 million jobs, raising electric rates by 90%, raising gasoline prices by 74%, and raising natural gas prices by 55%, after adjusting for inflation.

The research concluded that a typical family will be paying $1,500 per year extra in utility costs, if the administration does succeed in its attempt to pass this bill, commonly referred to using one of the following names: "Climate Change" / "Cap and Trade" / "Cap and Tax" / "Carbon Tax" / HR 2454 bill."

Dimwits Announce New "Lighting Standards"

The new Democrat strategy is to keep you in the dark and cold... literally... while the President sets his thermostat on very-very warm in the winter and very-very cool in the summer and jets around the globe in Air Force One wasting taxpayer money on dates with his wife.

WASHINGTON -- Aiming to keep the focus on climate change legislation, President Barack Obama put a plug in for administration efforts to make lamps and lighting equipment use less energy.

"I know light bulbs may not seem sexy, but this simple action holds enormous promise because 7 percent of all the energy consumed in America is used to light our homes and businesses," the president said, standing alongside Energy Secretary Steven Chu at the White House.

So while we are sitting in the dark saving money while not having enough light to read by and not being able to drive our car and not being able to run our air conditioners or heaters.... it is comforting to know that at least our fearless leader is comfortable and cozy.

Had enough yet?

America Should Be Celebrating Iraqi Freedom Victory, Media Silent

It's embarrassing and disgusting how the partisan media and as a result Americans in general are ignoring the huge victory being celebrated across Iraq. We should be celebrating for them.... with them, instead the US government democrat ministry of information (news media) is silent.

Silent at a time when millions are free because of American blood, sweat, time and money... silent when they should be shouting "freedom rings" from every headline. No, Americans are too busy worrying about themselves and how bad things are in America and how America needs to be rebuilt and fixed.

Like I said... disgusting and embarrassing.

CNN has this... "Historic Moment in Iraq Marked by Little Fanfare, Mixed Feelings"
The so-called "little fan-fare" is the reaction by the White House and his government run media machine... (like CNN for one example) and average Americans who don't know about VICTORY IN IRAQ. The "mixed feelings" refer to Iraqi's who DON'T want the Americans to leave although CNN wonders just who the innocent Iraqis could be afraid of if the "evil murdering, torturing" Americans are not there killing innocent Iraqis.

"Baghdad resident Hanaa Abdul Hassan told CNN she feels "fear and horror."

"Without the Americans, we were afraid of each other, and now that the Americans are leaving, we will be more afraid. We knew the Americans were holding them back, so now I don't know what's going to happen," she said, without specifying who "they" were." -CNN

Top US Commander: Iran is Behind most Attacks in Iraq

"Iran is still supporting, funding and training surrogates who operate inside of Iraq. They have not stopped and I don't think they will stop," Odierno told reporters at the U.S. military headquarters outside Baghdad. "I think many of the attacks in Baghdad are from individuals that have been in fact funded or trained by the Iranians."

Odierno said the attacks were mainly indirect fire—a term usually reserved for mortars, rockets and artillery—and EFP's. That last weapon, also known as an explosively formed penetrator, is designed to attack armored vehicles such as Humvees and is among the main killers of U.S. troops in Iraq. U.S. officials have said the main component of the EFP is manufactured in Iran.

Odierno directly implicated groups supported by Iran in recent rocket attacks against the walled-off Green Zone in central Baghdad.

"Those are being done by groups that have been trained in Iran, been funded by Iran. Usually their leaders are still in Iran and they have surrogates doing operations in Iraq," he said.

June 30th is "National Sovereignty Day" in Iraq ! (Victory)

"Iraqi government TV has been playing patriotic music to celebrate the U.S. military withdrawal from cities, towns and villages across the country, officially set to be completed by Tuesday June 30th.

Iraqi military vehicles were also covered with flowers to celebrate the event, and military parades, complete with band music, were organized in Diyala and Diwania provinces.

The government declared a “Day of National Sovereignty” to mark the event, and has invited ordinary citizens to join evening celebrations at Baghdad’s Zawra Park for a festival of music and poetry.

Interior Minister Jawad Boulani told journalists the U.S. withdrawal is almost complete and Iraqi forces are capable of maintaining order across the country.

He says he believes Iraq’s security situation is under control. “I do not think we need to declare a curfew,” he said.

Mission Accomplished America, ....congratulations to Iraqis everywhere and thank you to our brave men and women in uniform.... and to George W Bush for having the courage and the faith and the dedication to overcome.


Abiotic Oil Makes More Sense Than Dinosaur Oil

With the current panic stricken, foaming at the mouth, global warming, going green, oil-hating going on these days, I really have to laugh in between the crying spells... but I look at things a little differently.

Remember when they (scientists) told us oil came from dinosaurs?
They were dead serious at the time... but now of course that is just silly stuff never intended to be taken as fact. Dinosaurs... lol. Now we all know that oil comes from decayed vegetative material like zooplankton and algae that oozed down through miles and miles of rock and pooled up into giant lakes of oil.

Trouble is... they (scientists) are finding oil in places where organic material doesn't exist and computer models show that there has not been sufficient vegetative material to decompose into the volume of oil that exists.... not even counting the oil yet undiscovered.

I have always found the idea that crude oil could come from organic material not quite credible since that fact cannot be reproduced in the lab... all you get is animal fat or vegetable oil... not petroleum.

So I have posted on this before, but new information continues to support the idea that oil is a natural bi-product of the earths core activity which continues to be produced and is NOT from dead plants... or dinosaurs... or unicorns.

"Abiotic Oil"

Addressing the theory in circulation that oil is not solely of organic origin, but that there may be another mode of origin as well from deeper in the crust, involving magma.

  • Oil being discovered at 30,000 feet, far below the 18,000 feet where organic matter is no longer found.
  • Wells pumped dry later replenished.

Last Year Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest single oil producer, and is now set to completely dominate global oil production and sales for the next century.

Okie Funk Should Post Free Healthcare Locations Instead of Pushing Political Agenda

Hat-tip to Otter Limits.

College Professor/Blogger/Democrat Political Pundit/Okie Funk/dochoc's most recent opinion piece calls for health-care reform in Oklahoma.
"If there is one particular place in dire need of healthcare reform, it’s surely Oklahoma. The state consistently ranks low in health studies and access to medical care."-dochoc
Steve at Otter Limits has a good take on how wrong dochoc at Okie Funk blog is on this subject so I won't add to his analysis... except one thing, as a public service to blogs like Okie Funk and college professors and the general public at large, I will RE-POST for the third time (with a permanent link over in the right sidebar) the list of FREE or low cost (pay only what you can afford) medical health-care facilities in the Oklahoma City area.

Hey "Doctor" Kurt... how about instead of lying to people to push your own political agenda you post the locations where people can get free or low cost medical care in the OKC area for any illness or problem right now and actually HELP SOMEONE for a change?

Doesn't fit your selfish partisan political template? I didn't think so.

The list:

A Test for Denver International Airport's Leftwing Managers

Michelle Malkin is reporting that far Left ground troops from “Progressive Future,” funded by left-wing billionaire Peter Lewis, were petitioning travelers at Denver International Airport with anti-Fox and anti-Rush Limbaugh literature in support of Obamacare.

Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi asks some good questions:

…I was just wondering, if young people who wanted to collect signatures to, say, push for the repeal of Roe v. Wade asked, would they be welcome at DIA?

How about young people who advocate for bold new free-market solutions to help get us out of Obama’s fiscal mess?

How about young people who want to “educate” the public about Governor Bill Ritter’s disastrous “new energy economy”?

Or how about some kids just getting involved and gathering signatures to stop socialized, rationed, government-controlled medicine?

Some group should test out how open-minded and inclusive DIA is on the issue of petitioners. Surely, there would be no ideological discrimination.

A challenge for Tea Party people!

"Don't Mess With Joe" is On the Job, Looking out for Your Money

during a press conference call with reporters, Joe Biden was asked to explain how exactly the administration plans to create the 600,000 new jobs this summer as advertised by the Obama administration.

Biden immediately asked for "a pass", saying a question like that is "above my pay grade" and, "I'm sorry, I'm not an economist. My background is in foreign policy."

When he was asked about a proposed $9 billion tunnel between New Jersey and New York, the vice president said, "This totally new tunnel is designed to provide for automobile traffic. It's something people have been clamoring for for a long time."

Uhhh the proposed tunnel is for trains Mr Veep, not cars.

He can't do math and doesn't know a train from a car.... and this is the guy Obama put in charge of over a Trillion dollars and the entire economy stimulus plan?

The "must have" Widget Now Available

I can't wait till 2012... how about you?

Sex Scandals Since 1976? Democrats Still Lead By One

"The more you read and observe about this politics thing, the more you've got to admit that each party is worse than the other"
-Will Rogers

If you are keeping score... and some people are, Democrats still lead in the sex scandal statistic by one.... 27 to 26 (since 1976).

Newsweek Gaggle:
"Mark Sanford's unexpected and emotional revelation of an affair yesterday has caused much hand-wringing about the future of a seemingly scandal-plagued GOP. Critics are quick to point out that the party espousing "family" values seems to be having some difficulty getting its representatives to live accordingly. But here at the Gaggle, our memories are a little longer. We recall the days, not so long ago, when it seemed as though Democrats were the ones having trouble keeping their pants on. So we tasked our wonderful intern Aku Ammah-Tagoe to tally up who's been doing what to whom since the Wayne Hays scandal of 1976."

(Please note, this is not an entirely scientific analysis. Politicians are grouped by year, according to when the affair/scandal was exposed.)

1. Wayne Hays (1976): Affair with secretary (one of the first major sex scandals)
2. Allan Howe (1976): Solicited sex with two prostitutes (both of whom were undercover cops)

Democrats Plan Old Fashioned Revival To Convert Non-Believers

Democrats are bringing in has-been VP and Big Kahuna Weather Prophet "alGore" for a last minute motivational speech to Senior Democratic leaders who are "whipping and cajoling skeptical lawmakers to side with them" to approve the Global Warming Tax measure that could have significant economic impact on the energy bills of many Americans and even drive up the price of food. Congress legislating the weather much less legislating the global climate is far less likely to occur however.

has most recently become well-known for his environmental views. He's authored books on climate change and produced the Academy Award-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" in 2005 after bitterly losing the 2000 Presidential election to George W Bush. He then gained a ton of weight, grew a long beard, lost weight, shaved the beard, tried his hand at being a pulpit pundit and then finally discovered the religion of global warming for fun and profit and more profit.

House Democrats plan to meet with Rev alGore at 1 p.m. Thursday in the Capitol.

As visual aids... Gore is having two Polar bears flown in direct from a melting piece of ice to testify before Senate Democrats. The bears will be flown back to the small, drifting, melting, piece of ice to die as a symbol of their commitment to end global warming.

Next Rev alGore will lead Democrats in a global weather prayer, not to spare the polar bears, but a prayer that their big hoax won't be exposed before they can vote in a big fat tax increase on Friday.

Then they will all get in their big black Suburbans and Mercedes SUV's and/or in their carbon spewing private jets and off they go!

"Speculation is swirling that Gore's presence would have been radioactive and could have caused more of a problem"...

Clashes between the Islamic Republic's mercenary forces and anti-regime demonstrators continue...

Clashes between the Islamic Republic's mercenary forces and anti-regime demonstrators continue...

"Today more innocent blood of my compatriots has been shed. The numbers of killed are high enough for today's killings to be referred to as a MASSACRE! Reports state that rooms in some hospitals are piled with dead bodies. One cannot help but ask where is the world??!!

They dont count the dead anymore, they just kill.


Young woman calling from Tehran describing the savage manner which the Islamic Republic's mercenaries attacked peaceful demonstrations with bullets, clubs, and chains!!! She describes the scene at today's demonstration as nothing less than a massacre! Reports of scores of Iranians being killed today by the Islamic Republic's mercenary forces and hundreds injured. I still cannot digest the news that injured people are not being taken to hospitals because the Islamic Republic's mercenary forces are arresting demonstrators at hospitals!!!
Where is the outrage from that useless institution called the UN!?!?!!?

NY Times and Liberal Media Caught Skewing Their Polls for Obama

(CNSNews.com) - A New York Times/CBS News poll released Saturday that showed broad bipartisan support for President Obama’s health care reform, over-sampled Obama voters compared to McCain voters.

Out of 895 respondents, only 24 percent were Republicans, while 38 percent were Democrats, and 38 percent were independents, according to a June 20 release from CBS News. While the release says the sampling was conducted at random, those numbers are significantly below the 32.6 percent who identify themselves as Republican according to a May survey from the nonpartisan Rasmussen Reports.

Similarly, the Times/CBS poll said 48 percent of respondents had voted for Obama, versus 25 percent for McCain, a nearly two-to-one advantage for Obama supporters.

Had those results been reflected in the November presidential election, Obama would have garnered 66 percent of the vote to McCain’s 34 percent, Conway, president & CEO of “the polling company,” told CNSNews.com.

“Was the vote 66-34?

In 2008, Obama won 53 percent of the vote, McCain won 46 percent.

The poll was skewed toward Democrats and Obama supporters because the Times and CBS made it so.

Barney Frank's Freddie and Fanny Fiasco.. The Sequel

From the EIB Network:
Two U.S. Democratic lawmakers want Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to relax recently tightened standards for mortgages on new condominiums, saying they could threaten the viability of some developments and slow the housing-market recovery, the Wall Street Journal said. ... "In a letter to the CEO's of both companies, Representatives Barney Frank, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, and Anthony Weiner warned that a 70 percent sales threshold 'may be too onerous' and could lead condo buyers to shun new developments, according to the paper."

So he wants them to relax condo loan rules while more and more foreclosures are taking place, and all the while Barney Frank and the boys and Chris Dodd denying they had anything to do with the existing problem!

SC Gov Sanford Should Resign

Here is but one difference between Democrats and Republicans.




South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford will end up resigning or getting voted out of office by his own party.

Meanwhile Democrats who get caught in nasty affairs like Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy and Jerry Studds become heroes and get appointed to higher positions by fellow Democrats.

UPDATE: Predictably, radical leftwing copycat bloggers tear into Sanford (R) as if they actually had morals themselves or cared about infidelity, just to show us their hypocritical nature.

Funny these people are fine with Democrats having affairs, telling lies and sleeping around as evidenced by their lack of posts on John Edwards' affair on the Presidential campaign trail while his wife was in the hospital with cancer, Barney Frank running a homosexual prostitution ring out of his basement and Bill Clinton having "sex" with an intern in the oval office.
When Democrats do it, we should stay out of their private lives... but when Republicans do it, Democrats call for their heads.

Duncan Hunter Touts Iraq War Vets To Revive GOP

Duncan Hunter, a retired Republican who once chaired the Armed Services Committee, has decided that Iraq War veterans are the perfect candidates to revive the Republican Party in 2010.

Hunter -- a Vietnam War vet who briefly sought the 2008 Republican presidential nomination -- is already backing two such candidates as they launch challenges to two of the more junior members of the House Democratic majority: Jesse Kelly, who wants to take on two-term incumbent Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona's 8th District, and Vaughn Ward, whose target in Idaho's 1st District is freshman Democrat Walt Minnick.

Other 2010 GOP House candidates that fit that profile include New York Assemblyman Greg Ball, who is challenging second-term Democratic Rep. John Hall in the state's 19th District, and businessman Mike Pompeo in the race for Kansas' open 4th District seat.

Hunter concedes that building up campaign infrastructure -- particularly fundraising -- is a challenge for candidates recently returned from the front lines. "These guys have great quality, what they didn't have in the last race was a couple million dollars in the bank," Hunter said.

So he's out to change that.

Hunter said he plans to continue campaigning and attending fundraisers throughout the 2010 cycle for a handful of GOP candidates.

Democrats Attempting to Legislate the Weather

Democrats are rushing to push through their "Snake-Oil, Rain-Maker, Climate-Control Bill" by calling for a vote this coming Friday to essentially change weather patterns and control the climate by taxing your SUV and energy usage.

So we've got a pack of wild lying Democrat politicians raising your taxes while claiming that they can control the weather and affect the climate by doing so. They can't even predict the weather for tomorrow much less control it.

There was a time when Snake-Oil salesmen and phony rainmakers were tarred, feathered and run out of town.

Now we just elect them to public office and pay them an enormous salary to run our lives (and the climate... lol) for us.

What a bunch of idiots.

Obama Gets Tough on Iran by "Not Meddling"

Under criticism for not speaking out stronger against the Iranian crackdown on it's citizens who are protesting the phony elections held last week, President Obama got tough today.
Tough on his critics that is and tough on defending his "hands-off" policy on the subject of freedom and democracy saying...

"The Iranian people are trying to have a debate about their future."
Some in the Iranian government are trying to avoid that debate by accusing the United States and others outside of Iran of instigating protests over the elections. These accusations are patently false and absurd.

Do the images coming out of Iran look anything like a "debate" to you? It looks to me like a one-sided ass kicking by a brutal fascist government on its citizens. The inexperienced semi-socialist President seems more concerned about how He appears in all of this, than He is concerned for the Iranian people or concerned for freedom and democracy.

"I have made it clear that the United States respects the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and is not at all interfering in Iran’s affairs."

When asked by Fox News Major Garrett why he (the President) has not spoken out sooner on the Iranian issue, the man claiming to be the leader of the free world said...
"My role has been to say the United States is not going to be a foil for the Iranian government to try to blame what’s happening on the streets of Tehran on the CIA or on the White House, that this is an issue that is led by and given voice to the frustrations of the Iranian people".

Meanwhile in other news...

What Does The Left Find So Attractive About Dictators, Fascists and Other Thugs?

I've got a serious question for you hardcore lefties out there.

Why do those on the left ALWAYS side with oppressive dictators instead of supporting the freedom seeking oppressed people of the world?

Like the current situation in Iran for example. It's an easy call to make... oppressed people being beaten and murdered in the streets while protesting a phony election. Who do you side with?

Take a brief surf around the left side of the blog-o-sphere searching for support of the Iranian protesters being murdered in the streets across Iran following last weeks highly contested phony elections. Good Luck.

You will find little to nothing in the way of support for the Iranian people and freedom but plenty criticizing conservatives for supporting the Iranian people and freedom.

Same thing with Iraq... a country that has succeeded in forming itself into a self governing democracy, now with a growing thriving economy and ally to America in the war on terror, but the left would still prefer that the brutal dictator Saddam Hussein (no relation to Barack Hussein) were still running his rape-rooms and gas chambers while scamming money from the UN to put into weapons R&D. Not a word on the recent declaration of VICTORY by Iraqi's themselves... nothing.

Okie Funk
's dochoc thinks that writing about the urgency of spending your tax dollars to "save the (swimming) pools" trumps all reports about freedom seeking people in Iran being oppressed by facists.

The Daily Kos' only mention is to criticize and condemn Republicans for supporting the Iranian people.

Air America- "...has taken a hands-off approach to the protests"

NY Times on CNN Coverage: CNN's Coverage of Iranian Protests Criticized
"The performance of the American cable news, especially CNN, spawned an online protest by thousands on Saturday and Sunday, showing that viewers can try to pressure news organizations about their coverage in real time via the Internet."
John Kerry: "Let's Be Silent Concerning Iran"

And on and on... they write and talk about anything BUT freedom and the possibility of the face of the middle east changing before our very eyes. Iraq is already a free self governing country and friend to the US. Having Iranians thinking in the same direction is truly remarkable.

But one might get the impression that the left in America favors socialist, communist and fascist style of government over freedom, liberty and individual rights based on their opposition to freedom in countries other than our own.

Hiding behind the phony line of "not meddling" is in fact meddling just as much as supporting free and fair elections and opposing murdering protesters in the street would be meddling.

Knowingly allowing something wrong and unfair to go uncontested and unchallenged is in effect supporting it.

Do you think the French or the Britts wish we had not "meddled" in Germany's business in WWII?

The left in America think it's fine to meddle anywhere in the world EXCEPT when it comes to opposing some wacko-lunatic fascist or communist or socialist nutjob.
Then it's "hands-off".

Rhandi Rhodes Dead Wrong on Pot Smoking While Driving Message

I listen to Air America fairly often for as long as I can stand it... it's sorta my own version of self torture.
There is a commercial airing for the Randi Rhodes show endorsing the use of marijuana while driving where Randi says that we should legalize pot because nobody ever died in an accident while smoking pot... they just drive with their seat-belt hanging out, driving too slow which is annoying, but not dangerous, adding "nobody ever died while smoking pot".
Thanks for looking out for our young people Randi, instead of pandering to them so they will like you... NOT.

From The Research Report Series on Marijuana from the NIDA
"Through its effects on the brain and body, marijuana intoxication can cause accidents. Studies show that approximately 6 to 11 percent of fatal accident victims test positive for THC. In many of these cases, alcohol is detected as well.34, 35, 36 In a study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a moderate dose of marijuana alone was shown to impair driving performance; however, the effects of even a low dose of marijuana combined with alcohol were markedly greater than for either drug alone37

Other Health Issues with Pot...

Cancer of the respiratory tract and lungs may also be promoted by marijuana smoke.4 A study comparing 173 cancer patients and 176 healthy individuals produced strong evidence that smoking marijuana increases the likelihood of developing cancer of the head or neck, and that the more marijuana smoked, the greater the increase.17 A statistical analysis of the data suggested that marijuana smoking doubled or tripled the risk of these cancers.

Marijuana has the potential to promote cancer of the lungs and other parts of the respiratory tract because it contains irritants and carcinogens.40 In fact, marijuana smoke contains 50 percent to 70 percent more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than does tobacco smoke.41 It also produces high levels of an enzyme that converts certain hydrocarbons into their carcinogenic form, levels that may accelerate the changes that ultimately produce malignant cells.42 Marijuana users usually inhale more deeply and hold their breath longer than tobacco smokers do, which increases the lungs' exposure to carcinogenic smoke. These facts suggest that, puff for puff, smoking marijuana may increase the risk of cancer more than smoking tobacco does.

Some adverse health effects caused by marijuana may occur because THC impairs the immune system's ability to fight off infectious diseases and cancer. In laboratory experiments that exposed animal and human cells to THC or other marijuana ingredients, the normal disease-preventing reactions of many of the key types of immune cells were inhibited.16 In other studies, mice exposed to THC or related substances were more likely than unexposed mice to develop bacterial infections and tumors.14,43

One study has indicated that a person's risk of heart attack during the first hour after smoking marijuana is four times his or her usual risk.44 The researchers suggest that a heart attack might occur, in part, because marijuana raises blood pressure and heart rate and reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood.

Another study done in France in 2005 found that... "Marijuana Raises Risk of Fatal Car Crash"

Dec. 1, 2005 - People who drive after using marijuana are nearly twice as likely to be involved in a fatal car crash.

French researchers studied all drivers involved in fatal car crashes over a two-year period and found 7% tested positive for marijuana, including nearly 3% who tested positive for a combination of marijuana and alcohol.

Although marijuana's share of fatal crashes is much lower than those attributed to alcohol, researchers say the results show that marijuana use, even in low doses, significantly increases the risk of fatal car accidents.

More Pot, More Deaths

In the study, published in the medical journal BMJ, researchers reviewed information on 10,748 drivers who were involved in fatal car crashes and took required tests for drugs and alcohol.

Twice as many drivers involved in fatal car accidents tested positive for marijuana compared with a group of other drivers.

Researchers say about 2.5% of the fatal crashes were attributable to marijuana compared with nearly 29% attributable to alcohol.

The study also showed that drivers who tested positive for marijuana were more than three times as likely to be responsible for the fatal car crash. Researchers say the likelihood of being at fault increased as the blood concentration of marijuana increased.

Proving once again that those on the left have no interest in the truth or in whats best for our youth or our society and that those on the left will say absolutely anything to pander to their audience.

I lived through the 60's and 70's and I can tell you first hand we should NOT be telling our children lies about the dangers of drugs... even pot, just to be their best friend. Driving under the influence of pot (while high) can get you and your friends killed almost as fast as driving drunk. That is the truth and Air America, Randi Rhodes and company should be held accountable for their endorsement of smoking pot while driving.
