    Dems Cancel Copenhagen Trip Socializing another huge chunk of the U.S. economy is more important than saving the planet: Senator John Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts and chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, told colleagues on Saturday that Democrats could not send a delegation to the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen. “It doesn’t look like we’re going -– not as a delegation,” Mr. Kerry told colleagues as a he left the Senate chamber after a vote on a package of spending measures. “Harry needs the people here on health care.” Harry is the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid of...

    The UAW complained the GOP halted the bailout plan. One little known fact is Democrats had enough Republicans on their side to pass the bailout. It didn't pass because the entire Democartic caucus didn't vote.Eight Democrats bailed on the bailout (Reid, it should be noted, voted against it for procedural reasons, in order to bring it up for a vote again). Four Democrats voted 'nay': Baucus, Tester, Lincoln, and Reid. Four Democrats did not vote: Biden, Kennedy, Kerry, and Wyden.
  • Citizens suing state over illegals' tuition

    This is one of those "Have we all gone mad?" editorials we write around here every so often. But that's the only question we can ask when things get so turned around, as the issue of illegal immigrants and college tuition. In 1996, Congress made it explicitly illegal to offer any benefit to illegal immigrants that is not offered to Americans. This is common sense, but still it needed to be codified into law. Nonetheless, nine states, including of course California, offer tuition breaks to illegal immigrants attending state schools. California passed its version of the law back when Gray...
  • Nancy Pelosi Shocked - Americans might have to pay for their own education!

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi Shocked - Americans might have to pay for their own education!“The Bush Administration's new restrictions on federal financial aid will move college further out of the reach of American students, denying them the opportunity for a better life that college provides. Even the Grinch only stole one Christmas -- this decision will steal lifetimes of possibility. “Over the last three years, tuitions have risen by 35 percent, and as a result, some 220,000 young people have already been priced out of college. Instead of taking strong steps to address this problem, however, Republicans are...
  • Candidate's disappearing yard signs reappear - at the dump

    A Tacoma firefighter is under investigation after he showed up at the Tacoma landfill to dump campaign signs that had been reported missing. Dick Dorsett, one of three Democrats seeking the Pierce County Council's District 4 seat in the Sept. 14 election, alerted Tacoma police on Monday after a landfill worker called his campaign to say that someone was dumping his blue-and-yellow signs. By Thursday, prosecutors were preparing to review a police investigation that reportedly targets a firefighter union leader who backs one of Dorsett's rivals, Tim Farrell. "I didn't want to get into this pointing fingers," Dorsett said. "(But)...

    This is precisely the sort of Clintonian viciousness that Americans indicated they were sick of on election night. The Democrats' motorcycle rally-cum-funeral in Minnesota for Paul Wellstone exposed the party's character in a pellucid, dramatic way. It was so revolting, people couldn't avert their eyes from the spectacle. The only moral compass liberals have is their own will to power. Even the deaths of three members of a family could not slow them down.

    Expert says Palm Beach's new voting machines are flawed By Jill Barton The Associated Press August 20, 2002, 6:23 PM EDT WEST PALM BEACH -- An elections systems expert hired by a man who lost a city election inspected Palm Beach County's new voting machines Tuesday and pronounced them flawed. (snip)... Mercuri, who has asked to take apart a machine and examine the programming, grew frustrated over the limitations. She was warned by LePore's attorney, Leon St. John, to control her anger. ``I'm not trying to be hostile or anything. It's just really confusing,'' Mercuri said. Mercuri says the machines...

    BEWARE: Read this article from January 2001 only if you are prepared to get really steamed! It concerns the 2000 Cole Bombing and the FBI and CIA intelligence lapses that failed to prevent it even though one Islamic dude was arrested and started singing 2 years before the Cole Bombing happened. In this case, it seems there were no dots to connect, the singing Islamic bird was straightforward. This article is actually very specific, citing failure by the FBI & CIA bureaucracy except, curiously, I see no mention of clintoon, the country's commander in chief at that time. Hmmmm. No...

    Folks: Here is an interesting read ( or shall I say, reread ) from 7/01 detailing the general terror threat made public in or before June 2001 and again in July 2001 pertaining to Islamic terrorists. The article copied below (and there are many other ones bearing different pre-911 dates) shows that the general threat of terrorism wasn't kept under lock and key like many are claiming today. Even though this specific article focuses on the threat in the Arabian peninsula in particular, I remember reading other articles that took the focus off that region of the world, and instead...
