    Federal regulators need to explain why they’ve granted a perpetually-floundering California credit union that serves organized labor permission to raise money from investors—especially considering those regulators haven’t given the same green light to a strong and growing credit union that serves rural Idahoans. Credit unions are member-owned nonprofits and generally can use only retained earnings for expansion plans. If a credit union wants to grow using secondary capital from investors, it must first seek permission from the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), which is supposed to evaluate the credit union’s stability and financial position before giving the green light. A...
  • Our Healthcare Bill Will Outlaw Private Coverage, Eliminate Up to Two Million Jobs, Cover Abortion

    More than 100 House Democrats -- nearly half of the new majority -- have signed on to a new single-payer healthcare bill that supporters describe as "battle ready." If by "battle ready," they mean, "extremely controversial, deeply politically risky, and totally bereft of any acknowledgement of the proposal's eye-poppingly exorbitant costs," they're undoubtedly correct. Politico's story on the legislation is full of extraordinary tidbits and quotes. Here are some of the most important facts we've learned: (1) The bill "doesn’t include a price tag or specific proposals for financing the new system, which analysts estimate would cost tens of trillions...

    Fascinating so many news and entertainment outlets had the same claims at nearly to the minute of Melania. They even coincided on reports of Don Jr, yet the author admits he helped write the speech.

    "A State with No Republicans!" Very interesting...Note this. A US State with zero Republicans in office - The State of Illinois. Think about this. Some interesting data on the 'state' of Illinois ... There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ? Body count:...

    (Stephen Chikhani and Nadia Lockyer made sex tape; cuckholded treasurer Bill Locker poses with his wife) California state Treasurer Bill Lockyer's differences with his estranged wife, former Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, might not be so irreconcilable after all. The 71-year-old mainstay of state Democratic politics this week withdrew divorce papers he had filed last July against his 41-year-old wife, whose methamphetamine addiction and extramarital affair ended her political career and could have stained his. "He and Nadia have agreed to try and work things out, to try and reconcile," said Tom Dresslar, Bill Lockyer's spokesman. "He's proud of...

    Democratic Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner... issued a memo to county elections boards saying the forms cannot be accepted if a box is not checked next to a statement that the voter is a qualified elector, as the law requires. She wants a letter sent to those voters along with the state's application form so they can reapply. But Bennett issued a statement Tuesday, arguing that the law does not require that a box be checked on McCain's form as long as the voter signs it. He wants counties to ignore Brunner's memo. "This is a blatant attempt by the...
  • Al Gore and his carbon footprint

    02/19/2007 10:32:25 PM PST · by airedale · 37 replies · 2,596+ views
    I heard that Al Gore people are saying that he buys Carbon offsets to cover his carbon footprint caused by his 4 homes, private jet travel and other travel. This raises a question: Are the purchase of carbon offsets tax deductible? To what extent? Is he using the taxpayers to fund his carbon footprint reduction or is he doing this on his own?

    Forrester gaining ground on Corzine Closing the GapThe race for governor has gotten closer, with one new poll showing that Republican Doug Forrester has diminished Democrat Jon Corzine's lead to four percentage points. Corzine's advantage over Forrester among likely voters was 48 percent to 44 percent in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, or just outside the margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points. Corzine's lead in the poll has shrunk from 10 points in early August.

    It is with a heavy heart that I write this. I have no idea what is wrong with people today in this society and this country. My example I am going to use is a really really sad one. I was in Plant City as of Thursday night which for those who do not know is just north east of Tampa/St.Pete. I went down there to help a friend of mine who owns a house who happens to be a single mother of a 2 yr old girl. She needed help boarding up her house and sandbags etc. All finished...

    Run, Hillary, run! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: January 6, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 If Hillary Clinton decides to seek her party's nomination to run for president, like it or not, she will be the nominee. People often run in fear and loathing at the mere mention of the name of the woman whose personality warms and comforts them like a handful of refrigerated ball bearings down their pants, but let's face it: If you're a Republican, this is great news. The nomination of Hillary Clinton would be the best thing the Democrats have done for this country since recommending...

    Clement, Ford meet with Bush about his Iraq plans By James W. Brosnan, The Commercial Appeal September 28, 2002 WASHINGTON - Reps. Harold Ford Jr. and Bob Clement of Tennessee met with President Bush at the White House on Thursday about potential war plans with Iraq and left with reservations, they said. Ford, a Memphis Democrat, said later he was concerned that Bush is politicizing the war to help Republicans in the November election because many of Bush's and Vice President Dick Cheney's public statements about Iraq are at fund-raisers for Republican candidates. "It's not wise politics," said Ford. Ford...
