Of Course I’m Not Going To Read The Bill – I Don’t Understand It

Delaware must be so proud.

Rep. Tom Carper (D-DE) explains in this video why he won’t read the bill – “it’s hard to decipher what it means”.
“For example, credit card disclosures – do you actually read this stuff?”
“That’s one of the reasons why we’ve directed among others, banks, to use plain language – plain english to [...]

Laboratory For Universal Health Care – Tennessee

We have solid evidence of what happens when the government tried to provide health care. It almost bankrupted Tennessee.

In the case of [...]

Abortion and Obama – You Lie

There has been much discussion about abortion funding as part of the healthcare reform. Lots of discussion – little facts.
According to Obama, it’s a “misunderstanding” and “no federal funds will be used to fund abortions”. So, let’s have an “honest debate, not one dominated by willful misrepresentations and outright distortions”.
There is only one piece of legislation that directly [...]

It’s The Logical Conclusion

According to Rep. Hank Johnson:
“I guess we’ll probably have folks puttin’ on white hoods and white uniforms again and riding through the countryside intimidating people.”
It seems to me that the only people that feel there was some racial component of Rep. Joe Wilson’s remark are the race baiters that see an opportunity. The rest of [...]

How Efficient Is This New Administration

We have all heard the comments regarding the amount of traveling and campaigning the Obama has done since his inauguration – when is he going to get down to the business of governing? This left me wondering, how much actual work is being done on his non ‘pet’ projects? So, I took a look back [...]

Senator Tom Harkin – Welcome Home

It seems the audience had their facts straight while Senator Harkin stumbled – especially on healthcare for illegal aliens.

Out-gun The Tea-baggers

The headline reads:
The Guns of August: A Call to Arms for Progressives and Obama Activists
This made me a little uncomfortable and then as I read further:
This is a call to arms for the army of activists who powered President Obama to the White House.
O.k. now it sounds just plain scary. Who would write this type [...]

Linda Douglass – Don’t Believe What Obama Said

So, was he lying then or lying now? This is the question that I am left with.

I noticed immediately that Ms. Douglass does not say that Obama never said these things. Because they can’t – he did say it.

Hillary said it best during the [...]

Conyers Introduces Bills To Restore Voting Rights To Former Prisoners – BEFORE The End Of Their Sentence

I have to say, I do feel that felons that have paid their debt should be allowed to vote. However………………that is not what Conyers wants. His bill will allow voting for anyone that is not currently incarcerated. 
According to the bill in it’s current form this will impact 4 million people. The problem, 2 million [...]
