Conservatives and Republicans today suffered their most crushing legislative defeat since the 1960s.
It’s hard to exaggerate the magnitude of the disaster. Conservatives may cheer themselves that they’ll compensate for today’s expected vote with a big win in the November 2010 elections. But:
(1) It’s a good bet that conservatives are over-optimistic about November – by then the economy will have improved and the immediate goodies in the healthcare bill will be reaching key voting blocs.
(2) So what? Legislative majorities come and go. This healthcare bill is forever. A win in November is very poor compensation for this debacle now.
So far, I think a lot of conservatives will agree with me. Now comes the hard lesson:
A huge part of the blame for today’s disaster attaches to conservatives and Republicans ourselves.
Washington D.C., Mar 20, 2010 / 09:41 pm (CNA).- In a final, urgent plea to prevent the passage of the current form of the Senate health care bill, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) on Saturday evening sent a letter to Congressmen asking them to vote “no.”
“For decades,” the letter says, “the United States Catholic bishops have supported universal health care. The Catholic Church teaches that health care is a basic human right, essential for human life and dignity.”
How's that "Hope and Change" working out for you Democrats?
Unemployment rises in 30 states in January
By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER, AP Economics Writer Christopher S. Rugaber, Ap Economics Writer – 2 hrs 17 mins ago
WASHINGTON – Unemployment rose in 30 states in January, the Labor Department said Wednesday, evidence that jobs remain scarce in most regions of the country.
The data is somewhat better than December, when 43 states reported higher unemployment rates, but worse than November, when rates fell in most states.

Is it a black /white issue, is it a male/female issue, is it a liberal /conservative issue, is it a Republican/ Democrat issue or is it really a black male president issue, that is causing the rabid, frenzy of provocative prose coming from the right AND left against President Barack Obama? Is racism so deeply rooted in American's culture that some are losing perspective as to what the issues really are?
Did white America have a "Kumbaya" moment on November 5, 2008 only to wake up on January 22, 2009 with a black man as president and say, "oh, hell to the naw?"
The Republican House Conference recently held in Baltimore, was a human chess game. President Barack Obama scored a checkmate! No speeches, no teleprompter, no notes just one brilliant man, proving point after point after point. The republicans underestimated the president when they agreed to have the conference televised. As he stated when proposing to put the earmarks online before a vote is taken, "sunshine is the best disinfectant."
Thursday morning both Bob Latta and Lee Fisher will be guests on my show. Congressman Latta at 7:30, Mr. Fisher at 8:30. Should be fun.
According to a non-scientific, WTOL poll, 21% of those who responded believe President Obama is" living up to his campaign promises," while 79% do not believe he is doing so.
I'd like to see them continue the poll, or present a similar one, after State of the Union to see if there is a shift in sensibility after he has an opportunity to re-connect with his audience through some crafty use of language.
"Public Policy Polling's newest national survey finds that a 52% majority of GOP voters nationally think that ACORN stole the Presidential election for Barack Obama last year, with only 27% granting that he won it legitimately."
I havent seen DBA post on here in a while, and when I a friend of mine was describing Luke 10:18 to me, I thought it was intriguing and thought of DBA. In Luke 10:18, Jesus is talking to his disciples and the passage says, "And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." (KJV)
Translated into the Hebrew, lightning is translated as Barack (with different spelling) and, you guessed it, the Hebrew translation for the last part of the phrase is Obama (with different spelling).
In the Hebrew, Satan is the same as the english, but with different pronouncement.

Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention
There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America's military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the "Obama problem." Don't dismiss it as unrealistic.

So Obama is going to Copenhagen to press Chicago's case for the 2016 Olympics.
I'm so glad he has the time to do this , what with Afghanistan going on, the health care debate, the economy, etc. Gotta love this tax payer funded trip.
Sue Frederick the intrepid ticketer of illegally parked cars has struck again. As WSPD reported early this afternoon she is now stealing campaign signs from her neighbors lawns.
"In the continuing controversy surrounding the president's U.S. citizenship, a new fringe group informally known as "Afterbirthers" demanded Monday the authentication of Barack Obama's placenta from his time inside his mother's womb.
Just ran across this article, does this alarm anyone else?
Where is that Liberal screeching about 'bringing the troops home alive' and how all the Libs are "concerned" over Americans being "put in harms way"?
Where is that Indignance you Libs had with the Iraq war? Why aren't you protesting the surge in Afghanistan that is getting Americans KILLED AT A RECORD PACE?
Read it for yourselves, you warmongers.
