Amazing they force infants, elderly people to be screened and this goes on.
I feel safer already NOT!

Full Congressional Ethic's Committee report on Marcy Kaptur

While the PMA group is still being investigated by the FBI and while Marcy still has apparently funneled money in her campaign coffers, here is a copy of the Office of Congressional Ethics report on Marcy. There is some interesting stuff in here, like why Marcy wants to give taxpayer money to a company so they can build TVs here as well as who was not forthcoming on the interviews and what Marcy actually calls "earmarks" (sort of a PC way to make her feel good I guess). More on it another day, but you can read everything for yourself right now.

Attitude is everything!

We went into slavery a piece of property; we came out American citizens. We went into slavery pagans; we came out Christians. We went into slavery without a language; we came out speaking the proud Anglo-Saxon tongue. We went into slavery with slave chains clanking about our wrists; we came out with the American ballot in our hands.
- Booker T. Washington

Kaptur cleared of wrongdoing by ethics committee

The House of Representatives Ethics Committee has cleared 7 lawmakers, of wrongdoing in the PMA Scandal-including Kaptur. So, Congress clears their own saying there was no evidence of asking for votes. One has to wonder what questions they asked. It is too bad we citizens can't hold the same committee hearings that Congress puts others through and question them on this. This does not absolve Kaptur of all of the questionable donations she has received from what appears to be funneled to her campaign coffers from the PMA lobbyist Paul Magliochetti. This story is not done yet and you will get the complete story here, not speckled articles-as you all know and come to expect.

Don't worry about the Socialists worry about the Banksters

As Washington works to rev up the economy and spur hiring with yet another dose of stimulus, state and local governments are busily applying the fiscal brakes.

Tax hikes, spending cuts and layoffs top the agenda as states continue to wrestle with severe budget crises that largely can't be deferred by borrowing.

Freedom......a price too high?

" The cloak of freedom is saturated in the blood of Patriots".

I have been pondering this for most of the day. At what point would the typical American of today be willing to give up all he had and all he will ever have or know for an idea, a belief of freedom. Would they rise to the challenge of securing the hopes and dreams of their fore fathers, for their own prodigy? Would their apathy lead them into the chains of socialism? At what point were our Revolutionary Patriots of our nations birth committed to their cause?

Does Washington know what is going on in the Country?

The Washington elite don't have an idea what the American people want or need. Obama talks about investing in new technologies, wind mills and light rail. Do we care about these?
Wind Mils have been around for hundreds of years they don't work because they are unreliable and inefficient, Who among us is asking for light rail? Trains have also been around for a long time. The automobile brought along their demise.

State of the Union-A Total Disconnect

What did everyone think of that dud last night, called a speech? The charm of last year, if one can call it that-is long GONE. He said "I" over ninety times, and "me", over forty. Harry Reid was yawning, and at best, the performance was flat, in its' entirety. And more important, the pres. maintains his hard left positions for the most part.

I think that I am reading this right...

Just got a look at this post from the AP... http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Figures-on-government-apf-2178072020.html?... ...Correct me if I am wrong,,,but...the receipts went down...the outlay went up...and the national debt is screwed. The floated proposals will only make this worse. Yiyiyi...my great-great grandkids will be paying for this!

A Teleprompter-For Speech To Elementary Scholol Kids?

This is getting patently ridiculous-The One using a teleprompter to address elementary school children? There has GOT to be something that is being carefully hidden from the American People, I'm sure about that. With the right/left/right/left/right/left head sweeps, too. "UFB", IMO!

Jan. 24, 2010 —
Some election lawyers believe that last week's landmark U.S. Supreme Court opinion may have opened a new avenue for foreign money to enter the American political system, and that the justices are inviting a repeat of the 1996 Chinese money scandal that bloodied the Clinton administration.
