    Don’t let the 39th president near small furry animals of any kind. Not rabbits. Certainly not cats. 5/13/90To Sybil,Lamentably, I killed your cat while trying just to sting it. It was crouched, as usual, under one of our bird feeders & I fired from some distance with bird shot. It may ease your grief somewhat to know that the cat was buried properly with a prayer & that I’ll be glad to get you another of your choice.I called & came by your house several times. We will be in the Dominican Republic until Thursday. I’ll see you then.Love, Jimmy...

    Surprise! Congress is larding up the defense budget with miscellaneous taxpayer-funded boondoggles. # $25,000,000 for the Hawaii Federal Health Care Network, added by Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii). # $23,000,000 for the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC), added by Rep. John “Jack” Murtha (D-Pa.). This is the project over which Rep. Murtha threatened a colleague for challenging in the spring. Since 1992, more than $509 million has been used to fund NDIC, which is administered by the Department of Justice (DOJ.). Ironically, DOJ does not want the NDIC and has asked Congress to shut the agency down because the department believes...

Some key excerpts: HH: One of the arguments for those favoring a timeline for withdrawal thats written in stone is that it will oblige the Iraqi political class to get serious about such things as the oil revenue division. Do you believe thats an accurate argument? JB: Well, you would think it would be so, wouldnt you, that the threat of withdrawal of American troops, and the risk of a slide into catastrophic levels of violence, much...
  • Pa. budget deal was eased by windfall from electric tax

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Electric-rate shock for consumers could produce a windfall for Governor Ed Rendell's alternative energy agenda. Rendell originally touted a new per-kilowatt electricity surcharge as way to raise at least 60 (M) million dollars a year. The idea was to pay back 850 (M) million dollars in borrowing to subsidize alternative energy projects and electricity conservation efforts. But while state Senate Republicans say they support the program's goal, they oppose the surcharge. Instead, they say the program can be supported by an existing tax on electricity bills, which are expected to rise substantially as rate caps expire...

    The seasoned Hill aide knew what she was getting into when she agreed to become Hillary Clinton's chief of staff. The woman was quite prepared for all eyes to be on the biggest celebrity arriving in Congress, the first lady of the United States, who was expected to use her Senate seat as a springboard back into the White House. But what caught Tamera Luzzatto unawares was the full force of the Hillary machine already in place and making decisions.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) yesterday reaffirmed her commitment to end the war in Iraq, but her words were greeted with skepticism and some boos by anti-war liberal activists. Addressing the liberal pressure group Campaign for Americas Future, Pelosi called the war in Iraq a tragedy and a grotesque mistake, but her words elicited catcalls for her to do more. Pelosi acknowledged the protesters and even challenged them. At one point in her remarks, she told the protesters, The best preparation for combat is combat. When someone shouted a question about Darfur, Pelosi segued into a discussion about her visit...

    John Edwards hasn't won over any friends at the American Legion for his plan to protest the war on Memorial Day. Paul Morin, national commander of the American Legion, posted an open letter of the groups website blasting Edwards for what Morin says is an inappropriate political calculation that "blatantly violated the sanctity of this most special day," the Hill reports. Edwards wants people to protest the war at Memorial Day Parades and gatherings, take photos and then he will place those photos on his website. Buy a bunch of poster-board and markers, the website says. At a picnic or...

    Hmmmm. What was that about the “culture of corruption?” SEN. Dianne Feinstein has resigned from the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee. As previously and extensively reviewed in these pages, Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum’s ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.—Feinstein abandoned MILCON as her ethical problems were surfacing in the media, and as it was becoming clear that her subcommittee left grievously wounded veterans to rot...

    Maryland is poised to become the first state to agree to bypass the electoral college and effectively elect U.S. presidents by national popular vote under legislation moving briskly toward the desk of Gov. Martin O'Malley (D). But the bill comes with a big caveat: It would not take effect until enough other states agree to do the same. "It's a long way from home," said Senate President Thomas Mike V. Miller Jr. (D-Calvert). "I don't know if it will happen in my lifetime."

    When Democrats were in the minority, they lambasted Republican tactics on the House floor, reserving particular vitriol for the GOP practice of holding votes open longer than the allotted time in order to round up enough support for victory. Now in the majority and facing their first close vote with the $124 billion wartime spending bill, House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) is leaving open the possibility that Democrats might extend the vote beyond the usual 15 minutes. Asked Wednesday night whether Democrats would keep to the time limit, Hoyer paused, then pointed out that many votes can run...

    Senate Democrats are striving to stay united during debate on a $2.9 trillion budget outline for 2008 that already has tested their fragile majority. Moderate Democrats favoring tax cuts have forced a rewrite of the plan, pushing through an amendment Wednesday that would pave the way to extend a variety of popular tax cuts that are to expire at the end of the decade. Across the Capitol, House Budget Committee Democrats held ranks in resisting a GOP-led drive to keep alive tax cuts enacted during President Bush's first term but scheduled to expire in 2010. The Democratic-led budget panel worked...

    Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) is asking appropriators for $50 million to cover security costs at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver. That amount is twice as much as New York and Boston got from the federal government for the conventions they hosted in 2004. DeGette spokeswoman Brandon MacGillis said she is asking for more to ensure that the host cities have everything they need. The hope is they wont use all this money, MacGillis said. New York wound up spending about $50 million on security, and Boston spent $35 million, according to figures provided by DeGettes office. DeGette was...

    Despite campaign promises not to raise taxes, the new Democratic majority's budget fails to keep existing tax policies in place, which amounts to a $900 billion tax hike over five years, the largest tax increase ever, say Senators Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). For instance: Under a Democratic budget that does not extend existing tax policies, the lowest-income families who pay taxes will see their taxes increase by 33 percent. The $1,000 per child tax credit would be cut in half, and the standard deduction for married couples would be cut by $1,700. Forty-five million working families with...

    politico.com ^ | February 14, 2007 | John Bresnahan
    Top House Democrats, working in concert with anti-war groups, have decided against using congressional power to force a quick end to U.S. involvement in Iraq, and instead will pursue a slow-bleed strategy designed to gradually limit the administration's options. Led by Rep. John P. Murtha, D-Pa., and supported by several well-funded anti-war groups, the coalition's goal is to limit or sharply reduce the number of U.S. troops available for the Iraq conflict, rather than to openly cut off funding for the war itself. The legislative strategy will be supplemented by a multimillion-dollar TV ad campaign designed to pressure vulnerable GOP...

    Thank you, OXENinFLA for putting together the below comments and links!. Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web.
