Showing Courage

In another amazing “shill and shell game”, the Obama minions have managed to get yet another of their “number one priorities” over yet another hurdle towards the bankrupting of America. The bill meant to “curb greenhouse gasses, create an energy efficient economy and to decrease America’s dependence on foreign oil” will do nothing of the sort. There is nothing new in the conclusion that I have drawn, the totalitarian template for this type of ruse was cut with the “stimulus bill” and has been used by the Bolshevik bunko artists ever since.

In “Obama implores Senate to pass climate bill” (Yahoo news) we read that this was a “sharply debated bill”. Really?? It was “sharply debated” for about a few hours.. No one was even given the opportunity to read the entirety of this 1,200-page porker, not unlike the rest of these “hurry up/Russian Roulette” bills that have always been falsely advertised as Obama’s “number one priority”. By the slimmest of margins, this unread 1,200-page fiction and fantasy passed the House yesterday by a vote of 219-212.

Something as allegedly “important” as this global warming falsehood should certainly stand up to the discussion or debate of it’s alleged science or facts. Being that this lie is being inflated with the helium of histrionic hyperbole, debate of any kind would leave its marionettes stumbling and stuttering over the same vague and empty “promises” that they invariably pollute the “debate” with. Something allegedly this important SCREAMS for debate in order to not only properly “silence the critics” based upon actual scientific evidence but it would allow those who have no choice but to pay for yet another Obama omnibus to have some insight into what they are forcibly funding. “Transparency” which actually WAS one of Obama’s “number one priorities” has been replaced by totalitarianism.

As always, any Obama “legislation” is called “landmark”. No one, not even Roosevelt or Carter, had the gall to enact such sweeping socialism with a straight face. All of these “number one priorities” must be passed before 2010 at which time hopefully the apathetic who enabled this “historic” president to bankrupt this country and the mindless marionettes who decided to buy the bunk will see the error of their ways. This “hurry up/take my word for it” disingenuousness is the only “transparent” thing about the liberals..

Now Obama has begun to thump upon the 100 Senators in his weekly (weakly) radio address. “We cannot be afraid of the future..” This sounds eerily like the words uttered by Jim Jones as his sycophants were handing out the Kool-Aid in Guyana.. (The Peoples Temple and Agricultural Project, yet another cult from California.. Imagine that..) “..we must not be prisoners of the past..” As a sidebar, can we carry this plea over into the idiotic “slavery, reparations, excuses and apologies” sideshow?

“Don’t believe the misinformation out there..” Megalomaniacs like Obama love to say that those who disagree with him are seeking to “misinform”. If “misinformation” were all that the loyal opposition had to offer, letting them speak unabated would strengthen the “science” of global warming. Thus we again see the “rush” to vote without anyone reading a bill that amounts to about five full-length novels in length. These five “novels” would undoubtedly be of the science fiction genre..

“..there is somehow a contradiction between investing in clean energy and economic growth.” I would like to see a concise list of just how many of the liberals in Congress who have “invested” in this clean energy, that is MY idea of “transparency”.. The “clean energy” proposed by Dhimmi Carter, solar panels attached to roof of the White House, “worked” so well that President Reagan removed them at an additional cost to the taxpayers. One of these ridiculous tax wastes now resides at the Carter Library in Georgia. Do you detect a progressive pattern here? Maybe, “spend everyone’s money, accomplish nothing but “feel good” about it”?

It is all about tall tales, blowsy and vacuous diatribes that are as intellectually barren as the liberals themselves. Obama said that this bill would “create jobs, make renewable energy profitable and decrease America’s dependence on foreign oil..” No fact, no evidence, just “take my word for it..”

Just how many jobs will this nonsense destroy? “Profitable” for whom, other than the liberal who have carefully and thoroughly “invested” in it? The biggest lie of all: “decrease America’s dependence on foreign oil.” Mind you, this LIE is used by politicians of all stripes and varieties. I will say that the possibility DOES NOT exist that we will EVER be free of “foreign oil.” Transferring today’s machinery and technology to the pseudo-science of ethanol, turbines and squirrels in Habitrails is not only cost INEFFECTIVE, the “energy” produced will not be sufficient to meet the demand. Period.

“It will spur the development of low-carbon sources of energy-everything from wind, solar and geothermal power to safer nuclear energy and cleaner coal..” Enviro-nutjobs who have tried this “wind” thing have had to go to court with other enviro-nutjobs over the inordinate amount of birds who have been killed flying through these fields filled with progressive propellers.. In the end, the envirokooks want “man” to go back to the Stone Age (think Iran or Africa) and to swear off all of the trappings of “advanced civilization”. They will never be pleased.

Solar “power” even after decades of wasted time and money can barely create enough energy to power a toaster. “Safer nuclear energy”? This is the only realistic possibility for the production of power on the scale necessary, but the “safer” part means another neutering and emasculation by the pony tailed perverts of the ecology “movement”.

Even plastic puss Pelosi chimed in, “..the entrenched agents of the status quo” who were against this “landmark” legislation. It’s all about “change”, the results be damned. “Change” for the sake of change.. Pretty soon they will take all of your “change” too. For a group who profess such a belief in “science”, a group that calls global warming “science”, the idea of utilizing “science” to reinforce your arguments has somehow evaded them on this one. Now we have to hurry..

Even this admission made it to print, “Supporters and opponents agreed that the legislation would lead to higher energy costs.” However they “disagreed on the impact on the consumers..” The mere acknowledgement alone is stunning but suffice to say, the “impact” will be felt by the middle class. The CBO is “estimating” $175 a year, the EPA is “estimating $80-$110 a year.” Nonsense. I will give you but ONE example alone..

Liberal underachiever/Methadone addict can’t pay for their air conditioning and heating. The liberal Mommies and Daddies will “discover” some part of the Constitution “guaranteeing” the underclass’s RIGHT to air conditioning and heating. The “costs” will then be passed on to the middle class because that would be “fair.” Utilize this outline for your involuntarily socialized medicine, etc..

“The White House and Congressional Democrats argued that the bill will create millions of green jobs..” It will. Soylent Green jobs.. Watch the movie, you will understand..

The “science” of global warming is actually a liberal “religion”. This religion views disagreement as blasphemy or more aptly, apostasy. Even as of yesterday, the monochromatic Marxists were repeating their baseless mantras. Obama “adviser” Valerie Jarrett said, “It’s a job creator. It’s going to help save millions of dollars, billions of dollars, for our economy..” (U.S. House poised to pass climate change bill” Reuters) Valerie, come now.. Why not save trillions of dollars? Why not save bazillions of dollars? If the left utters it, it must be true..

Even as we speak, climate cultists everywhere are freeing themselves of the straight jackets of the Al Gore disease propagators and propagandists. Dr. Joanne Simpson “expressed relief upon her retirement last year that she was finally able to speak freely of her non-belief”. Dr. Kiminori Itoh, Japanese environmental physical chemist calls “man-made warming the ‘worst scientific scandal in history”. Dr. Ian Plimer, Australian geologist published “Heaven and Earth” which is a “damning critique of the “evidence” of global warming.. (“The Climate Change Climate Change” WSJ) There are so many others, shunned and ignored by the complicit and “impartial” media..

Obama said on Saturday that he encouraged Senators to “show courage” and follow suit.. “Showing courage” is EXACTLY what I want the Senators to do. I want them to have the “courage” to demand that this type of “landmark” legislation be debated and dissected and not just placed upon another progressive fast track towards fascism.

    Family,

    Tell everyone to “Show Courage”..

    Never give up, never give in and never again.

  2. Can’t quit, can’t give in, no matter how disgusting and how much worse this treas*nous, sorry excuse for a governing “authority” grows.

    One can only hope AND pray (not necessarily in that order) the pendulum will swing back the right, Constitutionally sound way with a vengeance (and I mean THAT quite literally).

    Perhaps the sheer, utter outrageousness of the UNREAD items running through the House of “Representatives” like diarrhea through a crystal meth addict will awaken the self-centered, self-absorbed, feckless, slumbering working masses (those who still have gainful employment, that is) from their collective malaise … if only to protect their meager, dwindling bank accounts.

    I’d ask God to have mercy, except methinks America stopped deserving it about 36 years ago.

    Aye, never give up, never give in and never again…

  3. Another timely and well written article, Larry. Alas I fear few of our fellow citizens are paying much attention and next winter when their heating bills have doubled they will be moaning and wondering what happened.
    A quick glance into what passes for important news these last few days gives great insight into the minds of what Americans really care about. The non-stop coverage of the death of the Gloved One..the despair over the announced divorce of Jon and Kate..this is what people really fill their minds with.
    Such tripe! Even Fox News has bellied up to the bar with the rest of the lamebrain media.
    And they wonder why people who still care about this country we love have stopped all pretense of expecting any serious discussion what is really going on.
    I will write my Senators (I suspect they pay no heed to emails and such) asking them to at least read this legislation. I live in Michigan so I will be pleading with Levin and Stabenow. Perhaps save my energy for prayers at Mass tomorrow.
    Sylvia

  4. bankrupting of America isn’t the problem, he’s collecting up the lower class for votes and long term power.

    Can he do it? That’s the question. He actually has all the way until 2012 to do this, even “if” things don’t turn out well in 2010 senate races.

    I don’t know enough about the population numbers to answer this question but it sure would be interest.

  5. And he well might have all the way to do the above until 2016!!

  6. Larry you are 100% correct. This is such a scam as we see it , but the average people have no idea. This morning I went to a convience store for gas for my lawn mower. I said well at least it is not $5.00 a gal. yet, and the clerk said what do you mean? I tried to explain cap and trade, and did not think she knew what I was talking about. There was a copy of the Dallas Morning News by the door, so I put it on the counter and told her to read the article on page one. As I departed I could hear several others discussing what that old nut said about electeric, natural gas, and all products going up. I’ll bet they do not read the article nor care because the rich will pay for it. I do not think more than a handful of congress cares as long as they are reelected.

  7. Sling Blade

    Graywolf,
    What you say is true-and maddening. I spoke to someone at work Friday about the vote and he didn’t have a clue what I was talking about.
    Apathy is truly our great enemy.

  8. Supreme Court Throws Out Plame Lawsuit
    ————————————————-

    The Supreme Court announced Monday it will not give further consideration to a lawsuit brought by a fired CIA agent and her husband against high ranking Bush administration officials, including former Vice President Dick Cheney.

    The decision is a victory for Cheney and his former chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, former White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove, and former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage. They and nine unnamed co-defendants were sued by Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband Joseph after her CIA cover was leaked to reporters.

    The “Plame Affair” was a major Washington scandal during the Bush administration’s second term.
    ———————————————–

    One might wonder if it will be a “major Washington scandal” when this president’s “don’t read, just sign” stimulus, energy and healthcare initiatives fail, one after another. One might also wonder when he’ll begin saying, “Jobs? I never promised any jobs!”

    These people have minds like an etch-a-sketch. Turn their heads too fast, it’s all gone.

    -beanhead

  9. The Republicans are predicting this “climate bill” will fail in the Senate, but Obama is already trying to persuade (strongarm) the Senators into passing it. With this and “healthcare reform”, our way of life will truly be “changed” for the worse…where can we escape to ???

  10. Margaret in CT

    As usual, Larry, you are right. This bill is “feel good” liberal politics at its most heinous. Only “the people” will benefit from the redistributed cash that will be given to those who have never worked. Those who own their houses and are living on ever-dwindling incomes will be ignored, because they are not “the people.”

    The margin of the vote in the House tells me that we have hope of changing the definition of “the people” back to that of the Founders: WE, THE PEOPLE.

    I think that apathy will continue to be our enemy until the Conductor on the train to Disney World comes to collect for the tickets bought by those who had no idea that the ride would not be free. The question is whether Congress will be able to undo the disaster that grows day by day.

    Elected Democrats have always known that their programs are folly. It is the continued tendency of the voters to believe in such rubbish as “global warming” that gives them the impetus to push on. Next, national “health care.”

  11. “The White House and Congressional Democrats argued that the bill will create millions of green jobs..” It will. Soylent Green jobs.. Watch the movie, you will understand..”

    Funny, but horribly true.

    I for one, cannot stand another mention about the anointed one’s “landmark” and “historic” decisions. My local liberal rag (Socialist State of NY) mentioned yesterday that Obama’s “flexibility” is what makes him so “wonderful”. In other words, his LIES. Typical shyster lawyer tactics. The only thing “historic” about any of this is how braindead the average American has become to allow this poser and his moronic minions to continue to “govern”. He let another one of his “landmark” decisions slip in under the table and the people of this country are wringing their hands over the death of a pedophile/freak. Is it me, or is there something wrong with this picture?

  12. Hi Larry,

    “The helium of histrionic hyperbole” – I like that, sort of. But don’t overdo it! I don’t share your political ideas (I live in Sweden, and my American wife and I had to move back here because only the “socialized medicine” system in Sweden would pay for the care she needed, not her expensive US health insurance) but I respect your right to publish them.
    One thing though that really bothers me: don’t hide behind a “Google Inc., 20 West Kinzie, Chicago” address. Unless you want people to think that you write these posts at the internet café they have there…

  13. Larry one would think the shameful knuckleheads inside the beltway would read your words, but that would mean they would need to read which we have seen repeatedly of late they do not.

  14. noleftturnz

    Rogier,

    I don’t hide behind anything. My site goes through WordPress, what they do with their site or servers is their business. I guess one thing that really bothers me is when someone says something without looking into things more thoroughly.. You haven’t been around here very long, I don’t hide behind anything.

    Sorry about your wife. Maybe if we didn’t have to finance the medical care of those who exist merely out of spite, our health care might be more “affordable”. I and others like me have no choice but to bankroll the belly aches and the toe stubbings that invariably take up space in the emergency room when folks like your wife (and mine) are almost always in need of serious medical help. I empathize completely.

    Health care for those who are very ill is expensive virtually everywhere. I will say a prayer for her.

    Back in 1992 or thereabouts, I believe Sweden had some issues with a bit of a run on their currency. Their response was to CUT spending and to institute reforms which reduced the welfare state and privatized public services..

    King Carl XVI Gustav had it right. Could he please make a call to our King of the Universe?

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

    Why should “we” escape?

    Lets work to bring some semblance of sanity back to DC in 2010.

    Pray that there is anything left to ressurrect..

    Michele,

    How are you doing? Did your surgery go OK?

    I always thought that Soylent Green was an underated movie.

    It was Edward G. Robinson’s last film..

    Thanks as always,

    Not_Paying,

    Loved the “36 years ago” comment..

    1973..I tend to think that that date was January 20, 1989.

    The date the Gipper stepped down with a dignity that only he posessed.

    Thanks as always,

    Sylvia,

    Spot on..

    It was sad (Farrah) and unfortunate (Michael) but these are the diversions that the rest of us who are left behind need to focus upon.

    Celebrate both of their contributions to entertainment, pray for their families but focus on the politics of destruction that will effect us all..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

    Sling,

    I can’t say it enough:

    Our biggest enemy is not liberalism or any of its derivitives.

    It is apathy.

    Liberals get mad and they get moving. Conservatives get mad and they sit down.

    I cannot fault them for doing what they feel they have to do.

    I can fault those of us who sit by and do nothing about it..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

    Bean,

    When the destructiveness of liberalism runs its course, the left will blame “the entrenched agents of the status quo”..

    Their “true believers” will agree, knowing nothing and not wishing to learn anything..

    The Flame game was just a ruse and nonsense. No one “outed” someone who got coffee and emptied the ashtrays for the CIA and her vagabond hubby..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  22. noleftturnz

    Mel,

    There are so many trying to get the attention of the elite in DC..

    They don’t even listen to folks like Ann and Rush, little fish like you and I don’t have a chance.

    Still, I don’t care, it needs to be said so I am going to say it.

    The final arbiter of power comes from the voters. THAT is who I hope in my own small way, to both inform and to even entertain. Convince and convert. One vote at a time..

    Rogier pointed out the “helium of histrionic hyperbole”.. I’m trying my best to laugh at a situation that should actually make us all cry.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  23. Larry,

    Great commentary about the new kds in the White House.

    If the “historic and landmark” proposed bill is about five novels long, how in hell would Obama even know what is in it! Who writes this crap, copies it, puts it together, etc.? For all we know half the pages could be blank and the other half filled with some of the promises he’s made.

    The apathy in this country is so pervasive that one almost feels that they deserve what they get. But, of course, we would get it too. I have to remind myself of that from time to time.

    I had to call our cable company to day toget help from their tech support. It just so happens that the person on the otr end was in Ontario, Canada…..another outsourced job. This, I thought, was my chance to get it straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. When she was finished helping me, I asked her a few questions about Canada’s healthcare……and I asked a lot of questions. I hate to tell you….she loves it. She talked for at least ten minutes and gave a glowing report, including her 85 y.o. grandma getting great care immediately after her heart attack.

    I wonder…..could it have been a canned speach???

  24. These are the Republicans who voted on this Bill. I was wrong about the states they were from but these are the traitors.

    Mary Bono Mack (CA),
    Mike Castle (DE),
    Steven Kirk (IL),
    John McHugh (NY),
    Leonard Lance (NJ),
    Frank LoBiondo (NJ),
    Dave Reichert (WA), and
    Chris Smith (NJ).

    These are the percentages for the changes that will be made by the passing of this Bill.
    90 percent increase in electricity costs
    58 percent increase in gasoline costs
    55 percent increase in natural gas costs
    Sling Blade, Graywolf, Larry and al et.
    The media’s job is to not give facts as they work in conjunction with our elected officials. Keep them uninformed, focus on trivial matters about people we normally could give a shit about. We need to start demanding they do their jobs and turn down the media garbage. What they seem to want to do has more to do with the liberal games they play and by keeping the youthful masses dumb, stupid and uninformed about politics. They expect them to cringe and run when politics are mentioned. They claim it’s boring and you really don’t need to care, it’s a bunch of wealthy, fat white men. I know that was what I was told in my 20’s.
    Don’t worry your little head about it; it’s above your understanding. Yet, politics is mostly what my father talked about and after a while I started to tune him out as white noise. So I started to tune them all out. I have always hated politics because of the hypocrisy of the candidates, when they run for office, they tell what they are going to do for and how he or she will vote, but once elected they suddenly get a bad case of amnesia and forget all their promises. Most are lying scumbags but every once in a while one actual might have integrity and does what they say they are gonna do. Those public figures such as Ronald Reagan and Sarah Palin are in the latter class. They did what was best for the Country/State as a whole instead of doing what was best for their political party.
    I don’t remember any liberals who are straight forward, who want to look out for the Country as a whole. They are more about getting power and keeping it and whatever their leader is, the rest generally fall behind.
    They’ve made it cool and hip to not read the newspapers, people who do are losers unless they chose the cool papers then it’s alright. Even in my early 20’s I read a lot of newspapers every day. I brought the Wall Street Journal, the Daily News, the NY Post and our local papers the Easton Express and the Hunterdon County Democrat (only printed once a week, Thursday’s) Every now and then I’d get the Star-Ledger. I read most all the way through every day except the sports page (love basketball so I would read that as well). I was made fun of for reading them from some friends but I could give a crap at the time I thought I should know about what was going on in my state and surrounding areas. I do realize I was an enigma in an ocean of ignorant fools. But in reading these papers that mainly slanted left with the exception of the Hunterdon Democrat which was mostly conservative and the WSJ. I got suckered in by the liberals and as I told you before the Clinton’s sucked me up and eventually spit me out. They mostly portrayed Bill as a foot lose happy everyday guy. After a while and all the various scandal-gates that clouded his administration I got fed up and started reading other things that I could find about both of them and made the conclusion that they both were out there and only looking at themselves. I actually thought Hillary was the worse of the two by being more then a progressive first lady.
    You gain absolutely nothing by placing politicians up on a pedestal they generally fall off on their own when they only do what’s the best for themselves and keeping that power and 9 times out of 10 they will disappoint you every time.
    We lost three celebrities this week and only two really upset me. I don’t think they were overindulgent and I don’t believe they were dishonest people. They were Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett. Yet the media seems to be obsessed with the Hollywood version of a real Peter Pan. Michael Jackson made his bed a long time ago and he’s been one of those overindulgent celebrities, with his never-never California plantation and the media zoo that followed him around. He seemed more interested in creating a facetious life. then living in the real world.
    Part of me is sad that his father forced this life on his son and placed him in a fishbowl. Part of me has always felt that Michael at times wished to have a normal life but he felt he had to live in this one. When your father becomes your manager you become a commodity to him and their family then you are no longer making decision based on your child but based on business and money. Michael was a psychologist dream patient and a man full of uncertainty that worked with adults at a very early age but craved attention and seemed drawn to children. Living in a fishbowl most of his life must have been very lonely, but like the real fish that live eventually they go belly up. When you have to pay people to be your friend then they are not a friend at all but an employee. What a sad life to lead. I hope whoever gets his children let’s hope they won’t be pushed into showbiz and lead a fairly normal life and paparazzi tailing their every move.

  25. noleftturnz

    Eileen,

    Thanks for the info on the Quislings.

    Anyone in the appropriate states should let these weasels know in no uncertain terms.

    Straight forward liberals? There may be a few.

    Bob Beckel is a good guy and fair.

    Pat Caddell (pollster) is a fair guy as well.

    Alan Colmes, though he spouted the party line while he was on Fox was a fair guy.

    Christopher Hitchens, fair and very intelligent.

    The Hollywood stuff: I find it difficult to really “feel” for most of them who crab about people pestering them when they encounter them in public. Uncounted millions provides them with the opportunity to insulate themselves from those who have provided those uncounted millions to them. They still “vacation” whenever they please in places we are never allowed anywhere near. I have no problem with that. Employees buy their groceries, cut their lawns, pay their bills, clean their houses, raise their children, drive their cars.. They just “act” or “sing” or “dribble”..

    That said, no one wishes them ill and these two recent passings cause me to pray for both of their families. No one with cameras cared about someone who passed in Iowa yesterday.. No one with the microphones and the flashbulbs cared about the one who passed in Delaware.

    Fame may have its price but anonymity is free..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  26. Larry :

    The leftists and their misinforming media never let the true facts stand in their way: they just bury them and fabricate their own facts . We all know the Crap and Betray bill will increase energy costs and do much more economic harm than environmental good.

    We will certainly need to “Show Courage”.

    Never give up, never give in and never again.

  27. Five Stars, Larry. Apathy is a very real disease and it is being spread easily because we are uneducated and selfish and lazy. Me, I’m just mortified to ask anyone for help, so I go it alone. Getting along in years and old bones has made me hire a couple of young men to help me around the yard.

    I’m reading “Common Sense” by Glenn Beck then “Commen Sense, Rights of Man” by Thomas Paine. Mr. Beck put out a truism: “The debate is over” is a line used by those who realize they would never win a debate. That is why there is so little debate going on in congress, that and it is hard to debate something you have never read.

    I even read somewhere today that someone needs to start a grass roots organization called VITAL, meaning “Voter-Induced Term Limits”. Quite a catchy name when you think about it. And it is so needed now. We really need to get the word out. I am actually finding it hard to get my wife interested in what is going on. She has a debilitating disease and if zero gets his health care poison passed, I could lose her before her time if they indeed live up to the hype I am hearing about the Elderly getting the short stick.

    Thanks,family for all your posts. I read all of them and take comfort knowing I’m not alone.

  28. Watching Boehner take liberty reviewing the highlights of “Tax and Slave” on friday was difficult. 300 pages….that was just the amendment put out at 4am that morning. Does anyone know what’s in the other 800 pages? I too went and hunted down the “8” who thought voting YEA was good for their careers. They’re either not up for re-election or not running again….or something in their past was about to catch up with them. 3 from New Jersey alone says alot.
    I’m disgusted….and scared.
    My slogan for the big O is…..
    LISTEN CAREFULLY TO WHAT HE SAYS….THEN WATCH WHAT HE DOES.
    Will there be enough of us listening when it counts? Will anyone hear us?

  29. Agreed!!
    I want all my Congressional Representatives to show courage and, pardon my French here, but I’m getting just a little pissed off and over the top angry with these “leaders” that won’t even take the time to read the legislation they’re passing!

    “Why can’t peanut farmers just be peanut farmers” still has marks of it’s ineffectual administration in Washington.

    At the time of Yumpin Yimminy’s tour of duty our foreign oil bill ran at about $400 billion a year. On 8/04/77 the Department of Energy was instituted to lessen our dependency on the oil. Hell of a job they’ve done don’t you think?

    Currently our bill runs, what is it, $700 billion a year on the oil and on top of that we get to add into that cost the Department of Energy’s budget. For this “necessary” department to reduce out dependency on oil, it costs the taxpayers $24.2 BILLION a year. They have 16,000 federal employees and approximately 100,000 contract employees. Bureaucracy at it’s best!

    And they want to take over health-care…

    Son Iain, just out of Timor, visited the old man and will return to his unit Special Air Services (SAS) in WA on his return to OZ.

    Much animated conversation on the ‘problems of the world’ and consoled ourselves with a couple or three bottles of Ballantine’s and The Bellamy Brothers:
    *******
    “Now these are a few things I’m in love with
    A small part of the reason I go back
    To Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, gorgeous Georgia
    Now if you think I’m happy down there you’re on the right track.

    And you ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie
    You ain’t just slappin’ your knee
    I’m a grandson of the Southland
    An heir to the Confederacy
    *******
    If ever I got the wanders again, I’d like to see those places in The USA.

    Have assets out looking for a new cobber.

    Some new names are up and running I see, or maybe they are born again NLTZers and I just haven’t been paying attention. Whatever the status: G’day from The Land of Smiles (sometimes spelt ‘Piles’).

    Treachery reigns supreme in Washington and Larry has encapsulated it just right. Some beaut replies too, all good reading really.

    My Best to All

  31. Arthur:

    I am so sorry to hear about Jillie. Best of luck with your search for a new cobber. I am sure that you will find just the right one.

    You’re right about the treachery in Washington. The leftists and their co-conspirators are just like the Energizer Bunny. They keep on going and going and going and…. But their batteries will have to run down sometime.

    If you and your wife ever decide to come to the USA, you will find that we have a beautiful country and not just the south. Someday, with the help of God, we will return to “Government of the people, by the people, for the people” (Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address).

  32. The petition to OPPOSE and FILIBUSTER Judge Sonia Sotomayor. When the latest information about her past came out and her involvement with a racial hate group for 12-year relationship with the radical race-baiting Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF). During her tenure the organization aggressively pursued a number of controversial lawsuits and took objectionable public positions. This violated the rules of conduct for US Judges. You can find that information here http://www.uscourts.gov/guide/vol2/ch1.cfm

  33. Louise, didn’t you know that the “Lobbyists lawyers” write all the “important” law bills? Congress is too stupid to create the statutes that the “Elite” want passed.

  34. Really. There’s much more of and about the word “country” than your stereotyping.

    America is this boy’s “country” and I’m damned proud to be an American!

  35. I’ve been compiling a Representative database with their information and such. If you want to create a web page on your website Larry your welcome to use this.

    Today’s other petitions. You need to pay to send the message to our Representatives. Petition for anti-Jesus Judge David Hamilton to demand he step down. Harry Reid wants his appointment to be smooth and The Judge who ruled it’s “illegal to pray in Jesus name” (but totally legal to pray to Allah) was forwarded 12-7 along strict party lines out of Judiciary Committee. Senator Reid wants a filibuster free conformation. With Senators Kennedy and Byrd and the missing Minnesota Senator a filibuster is possible. Maybe we can start a campaign to stop his nomination by creating a Judiciary committee writing campaign. The membership is lopsided with a makeup of 12 Democrats to 7 Republicans.

  36. Trviaman,

    No, I didn’t know that it was lobbyists lawyers writing the “landmark” urgent bills that Obama wants hasily passed.

    Thanks for letting me know.

  37. beyond disgusted

    Another excellent post Larry – you have so nailed it!

    I was apalled at Fox news coverage of Michael Jackson’s death Thursday evening & on thru the night (not to mention Fri & the weekend). I found myself screaming at the TV – “What the hell is wrong with you people? We have cap & trade coming up for a vote tomorrow, and you are droling on and on about MJ?” Have they gone over the cliff & joined the rest of the state run media?

    For anyone interested, there was an excellent article in the June 25th edition of American Thinker entitled “Obama, the African Colonial” by L.E. Ikenga. Rush talked about it on his program Thursday afternoon. Here is the link:

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/06/obama_the_african_colonial.html

  38. Louise, my original post was made so as to not
    scare you very much. Now that you know a little bit of it, I’ll let “the cat out of the bag” even more: the Lobbyists lawyers write almost ALL of the bills, not just the really big ones!

    Our “Reps” and “Sens” don’t even work for their pay, for the most part; they “trust” the wisdom of others to craft the “crafty” laws! (Pun intended!)

  39. beyond disgusted:

    Thanks for the great link. This woman certainly knows him for what he is.

  40. Louise,

    My Mother lives in Montreal Canada and she says the same thing.
    She loves the service and she is 87.
    There however you have to prove legal residency or risk deportation.

  41. Here is a list of Senators the PAC and Our Country Deserves Better Committee would like conservative to contact to stop the Cap & Trade Bill in the Senate.

    http://www.ourcountrydeservesbetter.com/campaigns/stopcapandtrade.html

    There were numerous protest rallies over the weekend and people are mad. I would hate to be a Congressperson who voted for that Bill.

  42. when the “tax and spenders” want more money to “fix the roads”, what do they do?
    They raise taxes on gasoline.
    hmmm.
    If raising taxes REDUCED consumption, then wouldn’t this result in FEWER dollars for road repairs??
    Oh wait, I’m thinking logically again, never mind.

    “Global Warming” (now “Climate Control”) will go the way of holes in the ozone, Loch Ness monster, bigfoot, and Democratic common sense.
    BTW- the earth’s rotation is slowing down, and the moon’s orbit is creeping away from us.
    Obviously we have waaaaay more important things to worry about that a warmer summer.

    STITCH!
