    Rick Perry: 1. He has done his best to sell Texas' private land to Foreign interests for the I-35 Corridor project which is sometimes called the NAFTA Super highway. 2. He also forced Texas teenage girls, by "Executive Order" to get the HPV vaccine. 3. He supports the IPPF ( International Planned Parenthood Federation). He received much praise from the Democrats for this action, and was demonized by the states Republicans for that choice. 4. Perry also receive a BIG THANK YOU from the Mexican President Vicente Fox for his "Sanctuary Citys" and giving Illegal Immigrants FREE instate tuition to...
  • Specter rages against 'extremists' in GOP

    09/28/2010 1:28:16 PM PDT · by Sub-Driver · 107 replies
    Specter rages against 'extremists' in GOP Republican-turned-Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania said Tuesday that the "nation's business is floundering" because moderate Republicans "have fallen like flies at the hands of extremists,” calling Christine O'Donnell's primary victory in Delaware "stunning" and implying she is incompetent. In an oddly timed and strongly-worded speech, Specter took aim at the Republican Party, which he claimed has "changed the most ideologically" and took not-so-veiled shots at colleague Jim DeMint, who has emerged as the champion of the conservative electorate. "Within days of the start of the Obama administration, before the ink was dry on...

    Oh yes. There is something nasty in the air. It leaves a greasy tang inside your nostrils if you walk through the foul mist emanating from the White House. Maybe Obama's gotta cut back on Michelle's sewer-enriched collard greens. From Jeffrey Lord in the American Spectator: A bombshell has just exploded in the 2010 elections. For the second time in five months, the Obama White House is being accused -- by Democrats -- of offering high ranking government jobs in return for political favors. What no one is reporting is that this is a violation of federal law that can...

    This kind of thing is so predictable that it’s a wonder that we haven’t seen more of these moments coming from the increasingly rare open town-hall forums this month. When legislators don’t bother to read bills before supporting them, they will obviously fail to know all the nuggets of disasters contained within them. The beauty of this clip is that the question that flummoxes Specter comes not from a Tea Party protester but from one of Specter’s putative allies from a union:

    Congressman John Conyers like his fellow Congressmen are having trouble with the Obama Health Care Reform Bill, H.R. 3200. The trouble Democrats are having is they can’t past this bill fast enough. The only problem is they met unexpected resistance within their own ranks. Talk about cash for a clunker.H.R. 3200 is a clunker. It is a 1017page disaster that Democrats are throwing money at. Trillions of your tax dollars. This Health Care clunker was supposed to be passed before Congress took their August summer break by command of the president but it wasn’t passed. Democrats couldn’t get their super...

The vice president said that, as a senator from Delaware, he was Specter’s best friend in the Senate for 33 years, and that he and Manne “have been trying to remind Arlen that he is really Democrat.” “I have been working on that in earnest for the past four years and double time for the past 100 days (as vice president),” Biden added. “It seems only appropriate,”...

    Will Congress pass it? Will America buy it? The immigration battle in our country has just begun that's for sure. But another battle getting less attention is the battle to make America's most powerful institutions more diverse. In many ways the immigration deal and the record breaking Census Bureau figures also released yesterday that say that America has become more diverse, with minorities topping 100 million for the first time in 2006, go hand in hand. So as Congress struggles with immigration reform, the population of the United States is growing increasingly darker. Our lawmakers and society at large need...

    A vocal Republican critic of the Bush administration's eavesdropping program will preside over Senate efforts to write the program into law, but he was pessimistic Wednesday that the White House wanted to listen. ''They want to do just as they please, for as long as they can get away with it,'' Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said in an interview with The Associated Press. ''I think what is going on now without congressional intervention or judicial intervention is just plain wrong.'' Specter was one of the first Republicans to publicly question the National Security Agency's authority to monitor international...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    WASHINGTON - Democratic Party leaders said Wednesday they want to know why Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) ended his presidential campaign with more than $15 million in the bank, money that could have helped Democratic candidates across the country. Some said he will be pressured to give the money to Democratic campaign committees rather than save it for a potential White House bid in 2008. "Democrats are questioning why he sat on so much money that could have helped him defeat George Bush (news - web sites) or helped down-ballot races, many of which could have gone our...

    (The) "nuclear option," (is) a parliamentary maneuver to effectively change Senate rules so that only a simple majority is needed to end a filibuster of a judicial nominee. Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said he has not decided whether he would invoke that option next year. Robert F. Bennett, R-Utah, the chief deputy majority whip, said such a move would occur only if Democrats filibuster a Supreme Court nomination. It's the last paragraph in the source link.
