God bless our House Republicans!! Blackberries confiscated to block communications!!
vanity

Posted on 09/27/2008 2:10:05 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

God bless you guys, we need you. You're our last great hope before the Democrats and RINOs push us all in and plunge us into full blown socialism.

Hang tough!!

By the way, just heard on FOX News something about the committees working on this bailout bill just had their Blackberries confiscated so they can't communicate with the outside world. I pray I misheard that.

I am not surprised by this Jim. Considering Pelosi wanted to ban members use of Twitter and Qik banning blackberries is the next logical step.

I believe it.With Camp Obamas sprouting up all over the country and Missouri Truth Squads gearing up, nothing is surprising me today....

The (most) offensive thing going on (among a long list) is that the Repubs have not yet gotten the ACORN finance portion of the bill out yet.

That CANNOT be allowed to stay in!

Stand Strong Repubs!!! So we will continue to have a Free Republic!!

You didn’t mishear it.

Yes ... this will not be passed, it will be blamed on the Republicans, Obama will win and they’ll pass it anyway, only far WORSE than what’s currently be debated ... and far too late to do anything but funnel money to ACORN.

The nation is going down. The banks are being run-on, with the next round beginning tomorrow. Hang on, folks .... the dow is going to 8000.

I just heard the same thing.....so that they cannot talk to anyone in THE OUTSIDE WORLD!!! I cant believe it! Also says lots of fighting and yelling going on.

Seems like there are a bunch of democrats and 1 or 2 CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS arguing back and forth.

Stay strong fellas!! We’re behind you!!

Limbaugh said yesterday that Paulson told everyone at the Obama jircle cerk on Thursday not to tell anyone what had transpired there when Obama screwed the pooch. This IS NOT being “transparent” and is scam is being conducted behind closed doors. Not a good sign for the American taxpayer. Must be some more of that “new direction” America stuff the DemocRATS are always talking about.

You heard absolutely right. Also, there are 9 Dems in the meeting and only 2 Republicans.

Every realist should research and understand the facts behind this crisis....and understand that it must get worse before it gets better. But to permit the left to seize the U.S. finance industry will give them ultimate power for generations and the re will be little hope for the Republic if that happens.

As painful as it's going to be, it's preferred over this farce of a bailout that they claim we need to do NOW. They sound like a bunch of used car salesmen. We weren't born yesterday, and frankly we simply don't believe them. We have no reason to! More than a few of the key players in this crisis CAUSED the crisis. Liars and thieves! We should be rounding up rope and running short on light poles!

Yes! You heard correctly. He's one of the 9 dems in the meeting and apparently is going (short trip) nuts.

I just loved it when Schumer said that there were too many people involved in the process. They just want to do the deal in secret with a handful of cronies and shove it down our throats.

My guess, and I don't know, but protocol would probably allow the seargent at arms to do it.

Also the FNC reporter traveling with Osama at his campaign rally today. When Obama started discussing the Financial Bailout crisis the crowd had is noticeably muted response. Apparently even democrats are against this.

If the republicans force the democrats to pass this without their support it could be HUGH! And SERIES!

NOPE! I heard it the same way, Jim!! They also said that the meeting, which was supposed to be 4 people— 2 Rats and 2 Republicans is 7 Rats gained up on 2 Republicans!! One of them is Blunt, not sure who the other one is.

DON'T GIVE IN HOUSE REPUBLICANS!! FOX is reporting the ACORN story now. Megyn Kelly was not happy about the Rat shenanigans.

Just sent this off via e-mail to my Senators and Representative:

Dear__________

Not one dime of this bailout should go to organizations like ACORN and La Raza.

The funding of nongovernmental organizations which are nakedly partisan is not only wrongheaded and immoral, but unconstitutional.

As long as this provision remains in the bailout bill, I, and thousands of others like me will steadfastly oppose any efforts to get it passed.

Before any bailout plan is approved, there should be hearings which investigate the root causes of this catastrophe.

There are members of both houses of Congress who have opposed strengthening oversight of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae every time legislation to strengthen oversight and increase accountability has been proposed over the years, and they must be held accountable for their positions.

Their actions need to be brought to the light of day, and NAMES NEED TO BE NAMED.

Wrong-headed actions by Congress led to this mess; and it is idiotic to assume that additional wrong-headed actions by Congress will fix it.

Thank you,
