Senator Richard Shelby is MY HERO. He is SMART and TOUGH. Congressman Mike Pense is ALWAYS there for us. I told his office on Saturday when I called to offer support that I WISHED I could vote for him. Haven't had a chance to look at Senator DeMint's video, but he is good to.

The House Repulicans are OUR HEROES.

I too applaud the efforts of Congressmen Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Ted Poe, Thaddeus McCotter, and the others

But to say that their point-men succumbed to the charms of Nancy Pelosi?

Please Monica. We all know that Nancy Pelosi has the charm of tumbleweed and thistle. It's not possible to elevate her to house plant status.

M/M

The Senate is voting on the bailout bill tomorrow. Here is the number
202-224-3121.

Senator Shelby - don't disappoint me tomorrow. Vote NO on the bailout!

Too funny MJ. I SERIOUSLY can't believe people can listen to that woman. Everytime I see her on tv, I have to TURN HER OFF.

MM--

I'm happy to have amused you. Suffice to say it's especially charming to see her interviewed on NBC.

Excellent article, Monica!

Here is another example of cowardly leadership (is that an oxymoron?): Bloomberg trying to change NYC's term limit law to seek a third term.

Three things are necessary for leadership: conviction, the courage to act, and humility. The absence of one of these destroys leaders.

Bloomberg's arrogance, ironically, just unveiled his weakness and could be his ultimate falling.

Michael--

The information you've provided has led me to lose all respect for Bloomberg

mjfell

It looks to me like the only way we're ever going to have responsibility and accountability in this country's government is to have term limits on Congress, just like we have on the Executive Branch.

There's a dangerous "ruling class" culture that's developed as a clear result of too many Reps and too many Senators being in DC for life.

Having a complete periodic overhaul of every seat in the House and Senate would result in new blood coming from among the people, which I believe is what the writers of the Constitution intended.

MJ,

Here is an article about Bloomberg. Thankfully, it says most New Yorkers are for term limits.

To your point, George Will wrote an excellent book about term limits:

"Restoration: Congress, Term Limits and the Recovery of Deliberative Democracy" (Free Press, 1992)

In fairness, I should point out that Buckley was for term limits whereas Reagan was against, thinking Americans should be able to vote for whomever they wish. But the incumbent has so many advantages that Congress arrogated to itself over time that term limits provide a logic check and balance.

Regards,

M/M

Ree posted this over at ImusTruth. Check out Congressman McCotter's eloquent speech.

Our House Republicans are SO IMPRESSIVE.

Thanks for the link.

Your comments on Reagan remind me that: In theory there is no difference betwen theory and practice. In practice there is.

THE SHOCK VIDEO DEMOCRATS NEED TO BAN

Here it is. Straight from the U.S. Congress.

Who made the Fannie and Freddie nightmare inevitable?

Who, with stupid criminality, or criminal stupidity, road-blocked proper oversight, attacking Congressmen
who pleaded for the obvious?

If anyone thinks that Democratic thugs were limited to groups like ACORN, this video demonstrates very graphically that some were also members of Congress.

So here is the shocking evidence, in living color and Congressional testimony.

Will Republicans get off their hind quarters and finally confront the Democrats (and save American taxpayers and their descendants from a staggering rip-off and socialist coup?)

Sarah Palin very likely could, if "bipartisan" John McCain
let her, instead of allowing Democrats to pin their abominations on the feckless Republicans.

But would "bipartisan" Johnny give permission? Would he let her? Would he free her to fight in a way we once thought
an old warrior could?

Gringoman--

Don't you find it instructive to observe Maxine Waters using the word "broke" when those properly schooled in the English language know the word should have been broken?

Maybe when she was studing that in school she had a code or didn't like her teacher because he was too ode. He should have tode her she can't speak!

However, I digress...

If the Republican ticket doesn't make this and other facts a matter of public knowledge they'll probably lose the race.

Truther

Very good, Monica. Exactly right.


SteveOk

(Monica)"They have become the new, bright, shining lights of the conservative movement: Congressmen Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Ted Poe, Thaddeus McCotter, and others. Watch them and support them. Because right now, they are the only ones saying "the fix is not in," and they are the only ones defending you and your hard-earned money"
------------------------------------
When we look at the Democratic leadership in Congress: Harry Reid, Nancy Peloser, and Barney Frank I fear for the future of America. The Democratic Party with B. Obama at the head will lead America to disaster and ruin. They do not have the ability to provide leadership and authority because they are morally and intellectually bankrupt. I don't critisize them for not leading because they do not have the capability to lead. Harry Reid is an incompetent bafoon--he couldn't lead a boy scout troop. Nancy Peloser does not have the capabitlity to lead a girl scout troop. The Democratic Party has been morally bankrupt for decades and if they are given complete control of the country they will drive the country into the ground.

mjFell,

This Gringobro answerin' for Gringoman. Hope you don't mine.

Now you axe about Maxine Water? See, now here what it is. Maxine Water a Congrass woman. I bet she been to collitch, unlike Gringobro. Maxine Water kin talk that Congrass jive. They never learnt me that in Malcom X Publik School.

But here the point. Maxine Water is somethin' like my mama. It ain't what she say, it's how she say it. That woman givin' off somethin'. She got her a lifetime gig from the ghetto, I hear.

I hert her talk about that Franken Raines. Ain't he the one got him 100 million dollahs outta Miss Fannie, or Mistah Freddie? Now that is a brother who know opatoonity when he see it, or when he kin get his hands on it. Maxine Water know that. She unnerstan. She feel it. She tell you whatta job that man do. She call him "extinguished" and stuff.

Why she do that? I know why. She decide to ride with the pride.

Know what I sayin'?

mjfell

Gringoman--

Yet ANOTHER argument in favor of Congressional term limits!!

Sovereign_1

Wasn't Maxine Waters the [mother] of Ebonics???

Sovereign_1

Don't term-limit our representatives without term-limiting civil service and the bureaucrats PERIOD! 10 years government service max, and then it's back to civilian life. Either OUR elected representatives do a good job for US or we vote them out. But without that same power over the career bureaucrat, we'll still have government of the people on the backs of the people. THAT'S the system.

M/M

Great discussion on term limits. I'm definitely voting against the incumbent this year, especially because my "elected weasel" is voting for the bailout package.

Senator McCain and the Republicans sent me a request for donations. I'm sending them back this message "Sorry, my disposable income is going to bailout Wall Street; I wouldn't want them to NOT get their holiday bonuses while they are busy ruining companies and the American economy."

I can't stop "the elected weasels" from raising my taxes and from voting in favor of bailing out Wall Street, but I can stop spending.

Here is a song dedicated to our "elected weasels" and the crooks on Wall Street.

"Marx’s Proposal Number Five seems to be the leading motivation for those backing the Wall Street bailout

By Martin Masse
In his Communist Manifesto, published in 1848, Karl Marx proposed 10 measures to be implemented after the proletariat takes power, with the aim of centralizing all instruments of production in the hands of the state. Proposal Number Five was to bring about the “centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.”

http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/fpcomment/archive/2008/09/29/bailout-marks-karl-marx-s-comeback.aspx

"Whatever happened to the modern followers of my free-market opponents?” Marx would likely wonder.

At first glance, anyone who understands economics can see that there is something wrong with this picture. The taxes that will need to be levied to finance this package may keep some firms alive, but they will siphon off capital, kill jobs and make businesses less productive elsewhere. Increasing the money supply is no different. It is an invisible tax that redistributes resources to debtors and those who made unwise investments.
So why throw this sound free-market analysis overboard as soon as there is some downturn in the markets?"


KWIC

Amen, Monica. I am glad we have a few principled and dedicated representatives of the people in Washington. There aren't many who are not on the take or playing the power game to their advantage at the expense of what is right and just for the people of this country. God bless them.

M/M

The Senate is voting tonight and my "elected weasels" won't listen to me, so I'm e-mailing Senators who are OPPOSED to the bailout and asking them to VOTE NO today.

Here is the website. Contact your "elected weasel" or A RESPECTED CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN today to voice your concerns about this bailout sham.

Gringoman practices hard to be a jerk:

"This Gringobro answerin' for Gringoman. Hope you don't mine.

Gringoman endorses a fellow editor who is not loyal:

See? Ebonics makes it simple.

gringoman

from Thugbert Washington: Gringoman practices hard to be a jerk:

gringoman replies: Yes, as opposed to a pretentious liberal race-baiter who does not have to practice at all.

Ummahgummah

LOL.

Looks like Gringobro is more real then the wanna-be-white who hates white people, especially those who dare to be Conservative.

No problem trashing this pseudo-bro GW since he's on the record calling people he disagrees with nazis, among other things.

Fire way, Gringobro!

Down with Pseudobro!


GilbertWashington

Gringoman is informed by those who expound various theories regarding ecents at Roswell:

"from Thugbert Washington: Gringoman practices hard to be a jerk"

Has Gringoman told this board about his discovery that Stalin deveolped a hybrid man/ape to act as superwarriors against the West?

GilbertWashington

Gringoman has long warred against literari and reason, preferring Supertroopers:

"Comrade Edwards, you refer to Papa Stalin's plan for cross-breeding apes and humans as "silliness." Congratulations! Any sign of sense and honesty from a "progressive," especially regarding "People's Champion" Josip Stalin, is appreciated. Wait. By "silliness" you didn't mean to question the report from Moskva Archives, right? You meant Stalin's "silliness" in trying to get apes and women to make "super-warriors" for him, right? (We don't want to mis-interpret a [sic] schooled izquierdista.) You may want to clarify this "little" matter before defending the honor of Papa Stalin's favorite Chilean poet. Or maybe you don't want to.

As for Harold Pinter and his tired Bush-bashing (how original of the old man) it's sad to see someone who may have been a writer 30 or 40 years ago---if you like dialogue with long "meaningful" pauses--- now get up on a soapbox that's already crowded with angry cliche-mongers. Is it the only way the poor guy can get noticed anymore? Nobel Prize? Isn't that the award they wanted to give convicted bestial killer (and Hollywood pet) "Tookie" Williams for a children's book---one he didn't even write?
