FRC's Tony Perkins Calls Closure the "Height of Arrogance"
Baton Rouge, LA - This afternoon, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins attempted to deliver a letter to Senator Mary Landrieu's Baton Rouge office only to be told by a federal marshal that her offices were "closed for the holidays." Over 150 concerned citizens joined Perkins at a rally in front of Senator Landrieu's office to urge the Senator to oppose the government takeover of health care.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following comments:
"We were stunned to discover why so many phone calls have been unanswered and met with continuous busy signals. As the Senate debates one of the most far reaching pieces of legislation in history, it's shocking that Senator Mary Landrieu would close her office to phone calls and visitors.
"Senator Landrieu sent press aides to offer the Senator's spin on the health care bill but she did not make a staffer available to receive letters or answer phone calls. Senator Landrieu knows that almost two thirds of Louisiana voters oppose the health care overhaul. However, refusing to take their phone calls is insulting and the height of arrogance.
"If Senator Landrieu's office had been open, she would have heard a clear message that we want her to stop this abominable health care bill that will force every American to support Planned Parenthood in the killing of unborn children, saddle families with higher insurance premiums, raise our taxes and deny our parents and grandparents the essential health care they need."
“They are totally out of my will. “
That works IF you have an inheritance.
The joke in my family is that when one of us ies, the others should turn him upside down. Any loose change that falls out of his pocket is their inheritance.
That should have read, “when one of us dies”
Spell Check is my friend.
Ben Nelson came to the Senate floor a little while ago to “explain” the corrupt Nebraska deal. He was a complete, stammering fool. There is no explanation except that it was a corrupt political deal. He kept huffing and puffing because in ridiculing the deal someone had made an incidental reference to Omaha Steaks. “You don’t stand on this floor and insult one of Nebraska’s great companies” [approximate quote] Nelson kept saying...because he had nothing else to say that made any sense whatsoever. What a fool.
FF to 19 min, 52 seconds....CSPAN caller tells Landrieu she is a prostitute.
Louisana has always had a love of their scoundrels. Mary and her family come from a long line of misfits.
I really really hope a whole lot of these socialist democrat bastards go home and are terrified.
And for good reason.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Don’t let her run and hide. Storm her offices, dog her every public appearance. Make her life a living hell for what she’s doing to America.
Shall weave Americas winding sheet!
HUNT the WITCH DOWN...Deliver it at her home!!!
My stupid rep congressman was in our hometown parade and I made my presence there by shouting my head off at the bastard. THE streets were lines with thousands of folks there and I took a stand and told him off!!! This is WAR folks no time to be timid!! OUR CHILDREN’S LIVES AND FUTURE ARE AT STAKE!!!
Isn’t Mary a 3rd generation pork-sucking, money grabbing, corrupt by association politician?
Seems like Illinois, Nevada and louisiana are in a three way fight for which state is the most corrupt!!!
All 535 members of Congress had better watch their backs for the foreseeable future...they are in real trouble.
Q: The difference between Senator Landrieu and a prostitute?
A: The prostitute will at least answer a knock at the door.
The only non-violent solution I can come up with is there needs to be a massive march on DC where the People occupy government buildings and take back control of the government. A new Declaration of Independence with a new list of grievances should be given, and then the politicians should be evicted from the premises. Then immediate reversal of legislation for the past year.
John of Leiden kind of treatment.
Not completely inappropriate given the parallels between the historic figure and Moon Baby’s arrogance and desire to control all aspects of our lives.
Boudreux ain’t happy... I talked with him today. He said, “I tole you one tang... dat bich is gone”.
She’s in hiding with brother Mitch, James Carville, wife Mary and Dad “Moon the Coon” figuring out how Mitch can win the Mayors race so they can steal her next election like the first.
A caller to Sean Hannity's radio program, Tues., Dec. 22, suggested that Fox should be highlighting this fact 50 times a day. IOW, keep the drum beat going all day, every day. The slime bags in DC will be outraged but they can't deny it nor justify it.
As the caller pointed out, they are OUR servants; we're not theirs, but they treat us like we are.
Just as conscientious objectors are recognized in the U.S. regarding fighting in wars, those of us who object to supporting abortions are also conscientious objectors.
How can we make sure, really sure, that none of our tax money is used for abortions?
Kathleen Sibelius has already assured us that it most certainly will be.
This bill will ration healthcare for citizens, while paying in full for the slaughter of babies.
