Mark Souder votes against 3rd Congressional District, again…

Filed under: Politics In General - 20 Mar 2006

Mark Souder co-sponsored and voted in favor of another Bill in Congress that will allow the Federal government to extort the taxpayers of his own district!

HR 418 is a Bill that will allow the Federal Government to require all citizens of this great country to carry a National Identification card; this is scary enough by itself. You will not be able to use Federal services unless you carry this ID card with you. Without this card, you will not be able to be a passenger on an airplane, get a problem with your Social Security account fixed, or deal with the countless other Federal agencies that exist.

The Big Lie: Illegal Immigration Benefits Americans

It’s widely been reported that illegal aliens comprise upwards of 27 percent of the US prison and jail population. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection — two agencies within the Department of Homeland Security — claim in several reports that they’ve apprehended over 100,000 criminal aliens whose offenses go far beyond violation of immigration laws and regulations.

A Dubai-ous Argument

Republican infighting = Republicans out the door

Congressional Republicans, I have a question for you. Are you trying to lose the 2006 midterm elections?

The recent infighting over the Dubai port deal has me wondering if you guys have your heads in the game. With less than 8 months until the elections, you guys are making the Democrats look organized and united, and that takes some doing! Apparently you’ve seen the Democrats snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and said, “I think we can do that, too, but better.”

Why I (Still) Love America

Filed under: Politics In General - 20 Mar 2006

A strange thing is happening to conservative Canadians these days. For the first time ever, many right of centre voters are speaking out publicly against an American Republican government. While still basking in the afterglow of a minority federal Conservative victory, some supporters seem compelled to add the additional ‘…but I wouldn’t vote for Bush’ catch phrase that is in fashion north of the border.

“Actor”, Richard Belzer, Says U.S. Troops Uneducated

Filed under: Academia, Media & Hollywood,War On Terror - 19 Mar 2006

On March 17th’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, actor and comedian Richard Belzer claimed he is more educated about the war in Iraq than our troops who have been there. And claiming that our troops don’t really know anything about the war in Iraq was not the only insult Belzer cast at the troops. (see Newsbusters.org)

A Small Victory: Georgia Refuses to Honor “Hanoi Jane”

Leave it to a Red State to do the right thing. An effort by the Georgia’s liberal-left establishment to honor actress and anti-war activist Jane Fonda for her recent charity work was defeated because of her infamous support of America’s enemies during the Vietnam war in the early 1970s.

China in Midst of Huge Military Build Up

Filed under: Foreign Countries & Policy - 18 Mar 2006

While the news media and politicians in the United States continue their focus on the Dubai Ports World deal or censuring President George W. Bush or Hillary Clinton’s latest diatribe, there are enormous changes occurring in communist China. For the most part, the news media and pundits have ignored events in China for over a decade.

It’s Time to Revisit the Electoral College (Redux)

In a recent article entitled, Flunking The Electoral College Once Again, Daniel Sobieski writes about a proposed election reform, “The Campaign for a National Popular Vote” in which, “a group of states would agree to award their state’s electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, regardless of who carried their state.”

Bad Doctors = Bad Medicine

Filed under: Potpourri - 18 Mar 2006

Maybe it is because I am up at 2.00 AM, in pain that never should have been. Maybe it is because I have seen more than my fair share of quacks. But tonight or should I say this morning I am going to get personal. I have gotten to the point I really do not trust doctors other than the one my children use, he is a good man and I wish there were a lot more like him. Unfortunately there isn’t.

Capital Punishment Is Still Pro-Life

Filed under: American Society & Heritage,Our Laws - 17 Mar 2006

“Kill them all, let God sort them out.” That was the saying displayed defiantly on the T-shirt of the ex-Marine I was working with. Obviously, that is well beyond an extreme position in terms of respect for the sanctity of life.

Eighty-Sixing 1836: Why Isn’t “Houston” Offensive Too?

There must be dozens of good reasons not to name a Major League Soccer team Houston 1836. Concern that it might upset Mexicans is not among them. Nevertheless, that’s the reason that was given by team president Oliver Luck. “After it was clear we’d hit a raw nerve in the community, we didn’t want to offend anybody,” he explained.

Partito Nostro: Doing Business with the Clinton Syndicate

TV Evangelist Pat Robertson and Muhammad – Do They Think Alike

The information age has produced two very distinct groups of people. It could be said that one group is a bit more grounded and better informed than the other. What makes the difference between these two groups?

Wave Bye-Bye to Freedom and Human Rights in Venezuela

On the heels of a report of human rights violations by the Venezuelan government of President Hugo Chavez, a story that is getting minimal coverage in the elite media, Reporters Without Borders is criticizing Chavez for jailing a television news reporter who criticized him.

The Two Faces of Democrat Presidential Politics

Shortly after this year’s elections, the 2008 presidential race will begin in earnest. This means that among Democrat politicians, the venom and bile being spewed against President Bush will only increase. But at some crucial point, it must be redirected from the outgoing president to any Republican “rising star.”
