I cannot imagine living in Lou Dobb's America. Thankfully, no one does live in his twisted hatefilled description of this, the greatest country on earth.

What must it be like to wake up every day and see nothing good, only ugliness and despair. What a pathetic man, and what a pathetic life he lives.

I don't know if any of you watched any of the speeches at the Federalist Society or not.

I missed Haley Barbour's speech...but I did hear his Q & A...

He was asked about fed $$$$ for Katrina damage..and he said that his state did just fine, thank you very much...and he said that Louisiana has the same federal government that his state does...and the FED did just FINE....LOL

He was asked about maybe running for the Senate some day...and he said that in all deference to the Senators...he told Sen. Lott one time that Senators go to Washington to talk about government...but, Governors actually DO the governing...(big laugh)...

I loved what I heard...I am going to try to catch a rerun of his speech later.

Then, Chertoff came on...and I missed most of his speech, but the part I did hear made me very uneasy...he was talking about how the US is already incorporating international law in our courts...using the Hamdan case as an example....and that we Americans will just have to get used to having international law be more and more common in court decisions....BLECH!!!

I left him right then...but, at 5:00 PM EST this evening, Dick Cheney will be speaking in front of the Fed. Society LIVE...I plan on watching that one.

Not just the lib supremes are pushing for international law, but the dems in congress and senate are pushing in that same direction.

They are attacking our constitution from so many directions it's impossible to stop the flow. Chertoff needs to be listened to and people need to understand the danger.

Chertoff is issuing a warning. Will it be heeded?

We fail to pay attention to his warning at our peril.

I also heard him say something to the audience about going to Europe and watching trials or something...I didn't catch all of it, but he was exhorting them to go to Europe..

I HOPE it wasn't to see "how it is done"..in a "good" way...I hope he meant to go see "how it is done"..so they can spot similar stuff coming over here.

Well then I hope they go to Germany. German courts require ALL of the facts to come out. None of our tricky rules of evidence.

Since I am going to try to watch a replay of Haley Barbour...I may try to watch Chertoff's...I missed some, and so I want to take it all in context...

I plan on watching VP Cheney's this afternoon...but, I never know with kids what will happen...LOL

I just wanted to mention before I forget

I'm reading Barack Obama's new book "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream "

You wouldn't believe some of the things he says in this book

Anyhow ... he mentioned the rules about Senators flying on private jets

They can do this and only have to reimburse the owner of the private jet for the price of a 1st class ticket on a regular airline

Are you hearing this crapola from Warner???

He sounds like a DEM who will be taking over next year...

Talking about how he "hopes" that Pres. Bush will NOT make any decision re: Iraq until he has a meeting with the INCOMING heads of the committees in next session..

And then working TOGETHER to get a bipartisan 2 BRANCH decision...how to go forward!!!!

IOW...Pres. Bush is asking to give up his CIC job!!!

When they first came back, after the election, DeWine go up and I swear he spent an hour talking about the fallen soldiers from his state.

I appreciate that he cares enough to do that...but an HOUR...and now today, he was doing the same thing.

I just can't take that...had to change also.

BTW..I just saw a blurb for an upcoming story on Fox News that shows Poppa Bush starting to cry while giving a speech...supposedly over his son..(but, which son)..Jeb ran to the podium to help him, bless his heart.

It was Jeb. He was talking about Jeb's loss when he ran against Lawton Chiles and how well he handled that and then he just broke down.

Imagine how he feels over how George is treated.

Just wanted to make note .. that every day the Senate has been in session since the Election

Mike Dewine has spent his time on the senate floor to talk about each of the fallen soldiers from Ohio that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country ... talked about their lives and their families and Thanked them for their service

http://www.hillnews.com/thehill/export/TheHill/News/Frontpage/120606/ethics.html

I looked on FR for a thread about this and didn't find one.

I was looking for something to watch earlier, and I saw a replay of this presser with John McCain, Feingold, Shays, Meehan and Susan Collins.

I couldn't hear the whole thing, since my itty bitty one was playing quite loudly...but, I got the gist of it...and so I went looking.

McCain and Feingold are at it again, wanting more legislation..

Lieberman and Collins are all upset that they can't get the votes for an "Office of Public Integrity" that would be apart from the Congress...

Feinstein has her own plans...and Obama has his own plans, which are very strict sounding, re: getting money for travel and such.

I find the part about Obama especially interesting since he was spending last night with THE MONEY BAGS of the Dem party, George Soros...LOL

Anyway, I just thought I would post this...since I didn't see any article or thread on FR..and thought you guys might be interested.

It was really pitiful watching these people moaning about not getting their bills passed...BUT, if you didn't know better, you would think that Shays, McCain, and Snow were dems, because they were all excited about getting this done ASAP after the new Congress starts...hehehe

I've been watching them pump for this for some time. It is yet another false, feel good proposal to give the impression that they are now, suddenly, going to be policed. It won't be "apart" from the Congress who will fund the thing, with our money, of course. Well, unless they appoint you and me to the thing.

Bah...I know you have gone to bed...but, since I missed a lot of the hearing, I am watching the part I missed...and unfortunately, that meant sitting through Hillbilly.

She truly is a b!tch!! The way she questioned the intelligence, patriotism, and concern for our country of Pres. Bush, VP Cheney, and Rummy to someone who hasn't even been in Washington for the last few years...was disgraceful.

It certainly wasn't the type of behaviour that one would want the POTUS/CIC to have in an open and worldwide seen hearing.

Bah....I saw Jim Talent's questioning of Mr. Gates...and I had a lump in my throat...he was so passionate about what he was saying and trying to get Mr. Gates to understand....and all I could think of was, that skank Claire McCaskill will be taking his place !!!

I am listening to Rusty Humphries radio show..and he just finished calling Pres. Bush and his father "candy asses"....and mentioned Poppa Bush crying during that speech about his son...and said "quit crying, stand up and be a man"...."if I could physically get to the present Pres. Bush, I would shake him and tell him to grow up and be a man!"

Oh...yeah---I need to hear this, after listening to Hillary at the hearing.

I will be going to bed now......sigh
