A bigger surprise is that you haven’t noticed that it has been posted about a half dozen times already.

Why a surprise? Read the history of communism and you’ll notice that in each case their advancement was always accomplished by violence or intimidation.

Notice how present-day commucrap congresscritters operate.

Nelson said he would vote for the bill on the Greta Van Something show tonight. He looked very uncomfortable while answering her questions about it. Spineless schmuck.

Well, we can’t all sit on FR 24 hours a day, and it would be quite tedious to scroll back through 12 hours or so of post every day.
I do not mind repeat topics. It helps me catch something that I would have missed overnight. It would be nice if there was a way to consolidate the repeats, but
I just do not know how it can be done.

Nelson should punch bamster in the nose and say “I will change parties and then we will put you under the prison”.

Ben Nelson says it’s BS, just for whatever it’s worth.

Note the source is “a Senate staffer” - no names, no way to verify one way or the other.

On Glen Beck today, he interviewed a writer for the Weekly Standard. The Standard originally came out with the article first. I think the man from the Standard said that there had definitely been a phone call placed from the White House to Nelson about the closure.

Followed shortly thereafter by the delivery to Nelson's DC office of a dead fish in a newspaper.

Nebraska splits its electoral votes based on congressional districts, with two going to the statewide winner. Obama got 1 electoral vote in Nebraska, with the rest going to McCain.

This is Headqtrs of Strategic Air Command & to even hint of a closure, in wartime, w/ 10,000 employees, is insane. To threaten a senator—plus the American citizens—is unbelievable extortion. Chicag0bama is edging toward impeachment.

Because some time before he stood up and said this bill was a non-starter and he would NOT vote for it. Even Greta looked confused!!!

Publicly threatening a US senator means ozero is getting desperate. I wonder what threats were made behind closed doors.
