The ethics committee addressed a host of resolutions regarding its now closed investigation of seven lawmakers’ ties to PMA Group
Two House members have asked the outside Office of Congressional Ethics to release all of the information it received in investigating seven House appropriators in connection with the now-defunct PMA Group.
The lawmakers investigated were later cleared by the internal House ethics committee, which has greater authority to punish members of Congress.
The Real Threat to Our Future: GOP Tea
March 12, 2010
There’s a lot of media jabber these days about how the deficit spending of the Obama Administration is threatening the future of the next generations of Americans.

Back in the day before airline regulation the plane would be on time, the plane was not crowded, meals were served with silverware even in coach and there was no charge for baggage whether carry on or checked. Flight attendants were nice looking females. Now you are faced with numerous fees with making reservations, planes are usually always crowded and late. There are no meals, but you can spring for a outrageous price for a snack. Now they want to charge for carry on luggage. I disagree with this but carry ons abuses have take on a life of their own and should just be banned.
With all the misinformation about the recently passed Health-care Reform bill this program gives a fair assessment in a time-line fashion of the events that led to its passage. Whether a progressive or a Tea Party Libertarian this program will give new insight of our political system. Your government at work.
GAO report endorses cuts in U.S. Postal Service
By Ed O'Keefe
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, April 12, 2010
The U.S. Postal Service's current business model "is not viable," and the mail agency should make deeper job and wage cuts, hire more part-time staff and consider outsourcing some operations, according to a draft of a government audit acquired by The Washington Post.
In part the GAO report states:
* Reduce the size of the workforce through retirements and outsourcing.
An interesting opinion piece by Dock David Treece.
With April 15th quickly approaching, we thought it appropriate to spend this week discussing taxes and current issues facing government cash flow in this country. We'd like to first preface our argument thus:
America is under a curse and those who treacherously voted for that fraud and foreigner are helping to make Marxist Jeremiah Wright’s wish come true that God damn America. Shame! -
Black Day in America: Obama Wins, America Loses
2 Kings 17
One local hospital said a patient came in to a outpatient clinic and wanted her whole body scanned for cancer. When told she needed a doctor order and her insurance would not cover it she got upset and said "Did you know Obama signed the law and everything is covered for free?".
Here's food for thought. Suppose after the Midterm election, the House refuses to fund this Mother of All Bills? Since all appropriations bills originate in the House, seems to me it will die on the vine, as they say.
They took an oath to defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.
IMO, next up in the hopes of riding on perceived momentum, will be total amnesty for any and all illegal aliens. The democrat party is bleeding votes, and here is a new source to be mined by desperate, soon to be gone socialists. Watch for amnesty to be "fast tracked" ASAFP.
As we watched the extent socialists went to, to continue taking a large part of the country over last night, there's no more guessing as to what to expect in November. The average person now knows what he/she's dealing with as the progressive/communist aparatchiks continue trying to herd us into some sort of peoples' republik. Independents, Conservatives, Constitutionalists, and such need to know how serious this socialist consortium is, and how they will resort to absolutely anything in November to try to strengthen their position.
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.”
"Capitalism: A Love Story"
On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
