The Dummycrat's new rallying cry is "Do It For Teddy".
This is in reference to passing the god-awful Health Care Reform Bill.
Oh, yeah, voting for something as a memorial to someone regardless of its merit is always such a good idea. NOT.
I learned this lesson years ago during the 1964 presidential election.
My best friend's father said he was voting for the Democratic candidate (LBJ) in memory of the assassinated JFK.
Please note, he was not voting for Lyndon Baines Johnson, he was voting for a Democratic candidate ... no matter who it was.
And perhaps a lot of people felt that way because LBJ was elected and became one of the worst presidents ever. If you think Bush's war (Iraq) was bad, then just Google Vietnam War. That is LBJ's legacy.
Health Care Reform, as it is currently being promoted, is just as big a quagmire with just as far-reaching consequences.
Back in 2004, when Senator John Kerry was the Dummycrat contender for POTUS, Teddyboy Kennedy did not want then-Governor Romney (Rep) to have the chance to appoint a *gasp* Republican as a replacement for Kerry in the Senate, should he somehow get elected.
So, the Massachusetts state legislature changed the law and gave control over the selection of senators to the voters. Now a special election must be held 145 - 160 days after a Senate seat becomes vacant. The winner would then serve out the remainder of the unexpired term.
Let the voters decide. Not a bad idea.
Now that Kennedy's Senate seat might become vacant soon, he wants the governor and legislative leaders to disregard the democratic process and the laws of the Commonwealthand change the succession, again... back to the way it was ... ... Kennedy asks that Gov. Patrick be given authority to appoint someone to the seat temporarily before voters choose a new senator in a special election. -- Frank Phillips, Boston …
Highlights: The plan is to turn a "day of fear" (that helps Republicans) into a day of activism called the National Day of Service (that helps the left). In other words, liberals are planning to drain 9/11 of all meaning.The administration's plans were outlined in an Aug. 11 White House-sponsored teleconference call. Groups on the call included: ACORN, AFL-CIO, Apollo Alliance, Community Action Partnership, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, 80 Million Strong for Young American Jobs, Friends of the Earth, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, Mobilize.org, National Black Police Association, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, National Council of Negro Women, National Wildlife Fe…
Dr. Jason Newsom, a 38-year-old former Army doctor and Iraq vet, directed the Bay County (Florida) Health Department until his personal health-care reform program against obesity ran afoul of local 'Redneck Riviera' politicians and lawyers, who happen to deal doughnuts.
Despite the sheer idiocy of deliberately bringing terrorists into this country ...
The old maximum-security state prison in Standish, Michigan (145 miles from Detroit), which the state is closing, may become the new home of the 229 suspected al-Qaida, Taliban, and foreign fighters currently being held at Guantanamo Bay.
The local residents want the prison to stay open, but not for Gitmo transferees.
Governor Jennifer Granholm said she would rather take in prisoners from other states, such as California, than the Guantanamo detainees. Leavenworth, Kansas, the second place on the list, doesn't want 'em either. In May, residents there told Senator Pat Roberts at a town hall meeting that 95% of the local community opposes it
The Opinionated Fool makes this observation: Keeping in mind that Michigan has one of the largest Muslim populations in the U.S. (if not THE largest), it's not too much of a stretch to imagine Muslim guards guarding the Muslim internees, especially if this pr…
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D / N.Y.) is the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee.
Like most politicians and like all Dummycrats, he doesn't mind spending money - as long as it's ours and not his.
Morality and Charlie Rangel's Taxes
Ever notice that those who endorse high taxes and those who actuallypay them aren't the same people?
Consider the curious case of House Ways andMeans Chairman Charlie Rangel, who is leading the charge for a new 5.4-percentage point income tax surcharge and recently called it "the moralthing to do."
About his own tax liability he seems, well, lessfervent. Mr. Rangel soon admitted having failed to report rental income of$75,000 over the years. First he blamed his wife for the oversightbecause he said she was supposed to be managing the property.
Then heblamed the language barrier.
"Every time I thought I was gettingsomewhere, they'd start speaking Spanish," Mr. Rangel explained.
Then:“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” Senator Obama told his supporters on the campaign trail in fall of 2008. Now:
The Democratic National Committee has dismissed the town hall (health care) protests as "mob rule" . The White House has called the uproar at recent town halls on health care “manufactured outrage.”
Senator Harry Reid calls the concerned citizens speaking their minds “loud, shrill voices.”
Nancy Pelosi called protesters Nazis, who are "carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care." There is no evidence on this whatsoever. --Andrea Tantaros From Hot Air: * Asking Representatives and Senators to read bills before voting on them is "killing democracy".
MPR: Rosemount, Minn. (AP) — Army Ranger Benjamin Kopp died last month after being wounded in Afghanistan, but a part of the Minnesota soldier lives on... Judy Meikle (57 yr old Chicagoan) says she got a call about Kopp's death two weeks ago from the soldier's cousin, who's her close friend. His heart was a perfect match for Meikle.She says she now has the heart of an Army Ranger who's a bona fide hero.Corporal Benjan Stephen Kopp, 21, was seriously wounded during a combat operation in southern Afghanistan July 10. Kopp was medically evacuated through Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany to Walter Reed Medical Center, Washington, D.C., where he later died as a result of his wounds July 18.
