    Default What good is reading the bill?

    During his speech at a National Press Club luncheon, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Democratic Congressman John Conyers (D-Mich.), questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill.
    “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.

    “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

    They should all go. Imagine any one in Congress voting, Yea or Nay, for legislation without knowing what the hell their voting for.

    To try to rush through, Stimulis, Crap and Tax, Healthcare, Bailouts and etc. is designed to force all these Marxist ideas and polices down our throats.

    Most of these asses in Congress could not even hold a job in the private sector.

    Neither can many of the educators in the schools of higher brainwashing. Gates being a perfect example.

    Default Why Read???

    Listen to what Barry say...he be COOL! 97% of whites be racist.....that's what a caller on Hannity said today!

    Whites can read.....that be the problem!!! We ain't got "RIMS" we got "ASSETS"....

    I was buying my 32 year son a birthday present, an air impact wrench, yesterday at Sears. I young black person, 20-25 years old, handled the sale. I used my credit card and he asked my for my ID.... He was very up front and polite from the beginning. I showed him my ID and thanked him for asking for it........

    But I'll admit, I came close being A JERK....an ANGERY REPUBLICAN and telling the cashier that I had had that Pay Pal credit card since 2005 and why was he asking me for an ID....??? Just because I was white???? But then, I knew that this would have been WAY out of line. I was polite. The young man was doing HIS JOB...plain and simple. He was following company policy. Had I questioned his request at all, I WOULD HAVE BEEN OUT OF LINE...

    Gates was out of line with the Cambridge LEO...If I were the LEO, I would NOT go have a beer at the White House!!!!!!!!!!!

    Read this: More people believe that Elvis is alive than believe there is a Congress...

    Excerpts of his great piece, "The Importance of 2008"
    By CONRAD BLACK | September 8, 2008:

    "Mr. Obama is proposing one of the greatest tax increases in world history, entirely on the wealthiest 40% of the U.S. population - who already contribute more than 100% (yes, you read that correctly) of the U.S. government's personal income tax revenue. He is disguising it behind a welter of largely fictitious refundable tax credits...

    No part of this familiar process is a "tax-cut," which is how it has been presented. The top tax-rate and the tax on capital gains and dividends would all rise by a full third, estate taxes would be raised to 45%, and social-security payroll taxes would be raised for families earning over $250,000 a year. The Obama campaign claims that all this would keep taxes at 18.2% of GDP, and would cover his vast spending plans, are nonsense.

    Mr. McCain would tax-incentivize productivity increases and legitimate industrial research and new technology and would accelerate depreciation allowances, thereby encouraging capital investment, and would moderately reduce corporate and personal taxes. And he would distribute health-care tax credits to every adult, encouraging the public to seek care at the lowest prices.

    ... Raising taxes when their economy is on the verge of a possible recession, which the Democrats endlessly claim is already upon the country, is an economic recovery plan that went out of fashion with Herbert Hoover 75 years ago...

    The Democrats and the feminist media establishment failed in their effort to represent Governor Palin as a Dan Quayle dunce in drag, a trigger-happy Stepford Wife and negligent mother (because she would choose to run for vice president despite her young family and 17-year old unmarried, pregnant daughter). The frenzy of the initial assault, and the sanctimonious conceit that American women would be offended by the candidacy of such an allegedly ditzy yokel, showed that McCain had remembered the basic military strategic lessons to apply maximum force at the decisive point and achieve complete surprise: If the liberal Democrats are taking the high ground on extramarital sex and working motherhood, you know they are frightened...

    The early Democratic and media ripostes of offended American womanhood, lumpen bourgeois mediocrity, and the primitive frontierswoman with a rifle in one hand and a Bible in the other, were completely inadequate.

    She is a naturally popular person, and a contrast with Joe Biden, a monotonous leftist journeyman, full of pretension and loquacity, a plagiarist (from Neil Kinnock of all people) with hair plugs...

    George W. Bush has a low but far from unprecedented approval rating of about 30%. But the equivalent figure for the Congress is in single digits, a smaller percentage than the proportion of Americans who think Elvis Presley is alive...

    Mr. Obama is and will be the political leader of African-Americans, whether he is the next president or not...”
