  • The most taxpayer-unfriendly members of congress

    Last night, I was told that a report was recently published by some DC think-tank. This report ranked members of congress in order of taxpayer-friendliness, i.e. it examined their votes on tax-related bills and determined where any particular member of congress came in on higher or lower taxes for their constituents. The same person who told me about the report told me that a whopping 75% of house and senate members from my state were in the top 20 LEAST friendly to taxpayers in their voting records. Have any of you heard of this report? Can you point me to...

    I've seen the senate races heating up, but not nearly as much on the house seats. I'm mostly using information from DC POLITICAL REPORT and POLITICS1. STATES Alabama DISTRICT 3 - The other Mike Rogers (R) won in 02 with 50.3% over Democrat Joe Turnham(48.2%) in an open seat. So far, it looks as he is facing Democrat Bill Fuller, Ex-State Human Resources Commissioner. I haven't heard much about this race, but the first defense is hardest. Alaska SENATE - Lisa Murkowski(R) vs Ex governor Tony Knowles. This will be a tough race as Knowles is an ex-governor and Murkowski...
  • Why Spanish Election results are irrelevent to US War on Terror

    3/15/04 | John Knight
    Journalists, political pundits and other Hysteric Left activists are desperately trying to spin some cosmic significance out of Sunday's Spanish elections. The "conventional wisdom" is that the Spanish Election results are some sort of significant defeat for President Bush and the War on Terror. As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism. As much as the International Political Left hates, and try's to deny, the reality is the USA operates on a completely different political level then the rest of the world. On Sunday, the...
  • Democrat Primary turnout not a even close to being a record

    Accuracy In Media ^ | Paul Weyrich
    The reason for my apology was that throughout this primary season we have been hearing about the record turnout of voters participating in Democrat caucuses and primaries. I bought the lie. The truth is that, except for Iowa and New Hampshire, there has not been any sort of record turnout for the Democrats. Even in New Hampshire the vote was far less than what the Republicans had when they last had a contested primary in 2000. The Democrats this year had 219,787 votes in their primary. The GOP in 2000 had 239,523 votes. That 20,000 difference is major in a...

    http://newsmax.com/archives/ic/2004/3/6/121052.shtml Well isn't this intresting. The "objective news media" supposed 9-11 surviors protesting Bush's ads are actually anti-war stooges financed by John Kerry's wife. Please take a moment and vist the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC etc to email the Omsbudsman, the Publisher, the News Editor and demand to know why they allowed clearly partisan advocates of Kerry's Presidential Campaign were presented on their "News" programs with no reference to their ties to the Kerry camp. We absolutely must demand the "News Media" be held accountable for their free advertising for the Kerry camp.

    http://www.georgewbush.com/tvads/ Here is a link to the 1st three Bush Re-election ads. As expected the DNC directed its "Objective News Media" mouthpieces at CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC to generate phoney hysteria about these ads. Compared to the demogagery and lies spread by the Kerry Campaign, Moveon.org and the DNC about Bush for the last 6 months, this is probably the mildest sets of ads that have run so far this political season. Please email this link to every person on you email contact list. We need to get as many people as possible to see these ads. They are...

    The Newton Kansan ^ | ? | Chad Frey
    TOPEKA -- Tuesday was a cold, blustery winter day. So why would anyone take a day off to be outside? More than 1,500 took the day to walk through downtown Topeka, showing their support for a bill allowing driver's licenses for illegal immigrants. "This is an important issue in any community, the Asian community and the Hispanic community," said activist and Newton High School teacher Crystal Sanhueza. "This is an issue for businesses; their workers need to get to work. People thought it was important enough to take a day off of work." Critics said the bill would compromise homeland...

    Since I last wrote – we won a war, paid our taxes, and finished our regular session in Topeka. Plus, Governor Kathleen Sebelius has demonstrated the epitome of her liberal social views. In a striking action on the day after Easter Sunday, Sebelius vetoed a key pro-life bill, overwhelmingly approved by the Legislature, which promoted the common sense of thousands and thousands of Kansans. The vetoed bill was one regulating abortion clinics across Kansas. Amazingly enough, two years I discovered that there are absolutely no regulatory standards for abortion clinics. In comparison, veterinarian clinics are regulated and have to meet...

    WASHINGTON - Democratic U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore has raised $124,479 toward his re-election next year, while the GOP challenger hoping for a rematch, Adam Taff, has raised $29,232, according to campaign finance reports. Meanwhile, Republican U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback pulled in $364,020 for his 2004 Senate campaign, which has not yet attracted a Democratic challenger. Reports to the Federal Election Commission, due Tuesday, cover the first three months of this year. The closest anyone has come to challenging Brownback was when Moore flirted with the idea earlier this year. But the Kansas City, Kan.-area congressman announced last month he would...

Here is another KU news item you probably haven’t read elsewhere. . . As our men and women in the military fight to free the people of Iraq from a madman dictator and protect our country from Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction, our own University of Kansas is still trying to determine which side they are supporting. That’s right. The high-paid University Leadership, in a recent memo, has announced an official position...

    Dear Friends: Election night is just about over, approximately one week after it began. And it is ending very well indeed! To date, the recount and provisional ballot process has increased our election night lead from 3,006 votes to 4,278 votes. There are only 1,683 votes remaining that need to be counted. Accordingly, the media is declaring that I (we) have won the Attorney General's race. The remaining votes are located in Kingman and Sedgwick Counties. Those counties should report tomorrow. Mr. Biggs has the statutory right to request a recount. If my margin of victory is less than ½...

    Bush Country ^ | 11.03.02 | By John D'Aloia
    Mission creep is a term often heard in discussions about the use of the U.S. military in implementing foreign policy. Mission creep is nothing more than going in with one goal and having achieved it, finding many other goals upon which to expend dollars, time, and resources. The military goes in to break up a fight and we end up trying to rebuild a nation. Mission creep is not limited to the military and foreign policy. The expansion of our government, its intrusion into our lives, and the diminution of our freedoms is an example of mission creep. Our Founders...
