These are your Congressmen, America. Your Senators, your Elected Representatives — that the rest of America and the World see and say, “This guy is a fair representation of the people of ______________” (fill in the blank with the nae of your state here.)

For instance, HERE’s Henry Waxman, and “This guy is a fair representation of the people of New York”:

A House Energy and Commerce Committee spokeswoman tells me that Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., has indeed cancelled the April 21 subcommittee hearing in which CEOs were to testify about Obamacare. So far, the only indication of this change appears on the committee’s website is on the Republican minority ranking member’s site. In fact, the hearing still appears on Waxman’s committee calendar for that day.

Waxman had called the hearing in reaction to public statements by several companies — including Verizon, AT&T, and John Deere, among others — that Obamacare would cost them hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars because it laid a new tax on their retiree health benefit payments.

Ever since the passage of the Medicare Prescription Drug benefit, the payments had been subsidized, tax-free, as a way of preventing these companies from dropping enrollees onto the Medicare rolls, where they would cost the government far more. When Obamacare changed the tax rules, it was quite clear that this would result in huge losses, but President Obama and Democrats had failed to heed warnings to this effect in the run up to Obamacare’s passage last month.

The CEOs, required by law to be honest about earnings projections, re-stated their bottom lines in reaction to Obamacare’s passage, earning the ire of Waxman and other Democrats.

Hearings on this matter would likely have proved an embarrassment to the Democrats and helped drag out discussion of Obamacare’s unexpected ill effects.

In short, the Dems have been subsidizing the Prescription Drug benefit to Medicare as a way of hiding just how much it costs. Obamacare wasn’t going to pay for this, and the CEOs of these Drug Companies – In Accordance with Federal Law – restated their earnings

And the results looked disastrous!

Idiot Chairman Waxman didn’t like that this would make Obamacare look bad, and wanted to harangue the CEOs publicly. But now that it’s been pointed out publicly that they were just following the law – he’s dropped the idea.

And the results will STILL be disastrous, won’t they?

Imbecile doesn’t begin to cover the stupidity of this moron who actually MAKES the laws of this country, but is ignorant of them himself..

Meanwhile, Congressman and Dark Lord of the Sith Barney Frank had his own run-in with the vox populi:

Barney Frank has enemies, even 30,000 feet in the air.

Flying back to Boston from LA, the congressman was assailed by a pair of ophthalmologists upset about the health care reform bill. An argument ensued that prompted some passengers to wonder if the plane might be forced to land.

“No one was calming things down and people were standing up shouting,” said Brooke Sexton, who was seated seven rows behind Barney.

Which brings up point Number 1: “No one was calming things down.” Have you ever seen Airline employee benefits, Ms. Sexton? My sister has them — they’re great. And under ObamaCare, they’re bound to get worse, as EVERYBODY’S WILL.

"Away from me, you peasants! Away!"

Sounds to me like the Flight Crew was voting with their feet to let the number one proponent of Obamacare get torn apart by the maddened crowd. Good for them. All you Libtards who truly, honestly believe Tea Party folks are violent racists — you might want to reconsider crashing the Tea Parties on April 15th. Those cops might just vote with their feet, too, and let the violent Tea Party people tear you up some.

But I digress.

Accustomed as he is to being conservatives’s favorite bad guy, Frank mostly ignored the doctor’s taunts, Sexton said, but the congressman’s partner, Jim Ready, did not.

“Away from me, you peasants! Away! Jim, attack, ATTACK!”

The problem started soon after the ophthalmologists – two sisters on their way to a conference in Boston – boarded the Virgin flight. When they discovered that Frank was sitting nearby, the women loudly dissed the landmark health care bill as an “Obamanation.”

“They wanted to talk to me, but I apologized and said I like to read and watch on planes,” Frank told us today. “They began to talk louder and that’s when Jimmy (Ready) said, ‘If you’re trying to be bitchy, you’re doing a good job.”

Way to go “Jimmy” — egg them on. Please note Point Number 2: at NO time did the ophthalmologists become Violent — did they, Barney?

Needless to say, the women didn’t appreciate the remark, and things got heated. (Attempts to locate or ID the women were unsuccessful.) Sexton, who’s an HR director for the UK-based retailer All Saints Spitalfields, said flight attendants weren’t working hard enough to defuse the situation, so she got involved.

“The women had been drinking, and they were crying and shouting,” Sexton said. “They were clearly the antagonizers, and Mr. Frank was kind of minding his own business.” (She said Ready also upset another passenger, calling him “Santa Claus.”) Finally, the parties calmed down and remained quiet for the rest of the flight. (Sexton was offered some complementary wine for her trouble.)

That’s it — get the one person willing to defend the Congressman drunk, too. Please note it was a Brit, who already has Socialized Health Care.

“This guy is a fair representation of the people of Massachusetts Taxachusetts.”

Hey, Massachusetts? What you gonna do about this in November? Keep looking stupid? or do something about him? New York — same question?

If you’re like me, the first thing You did when you received an e-mail saying that the moon was full of UFOs or that President Obama was a Kenyan trained Ninja assasin, you went off to SNOPES.com to see what the deal was with those crazy e-mails. And for the most part, SNOPES has been a reliable informant on the truth about these Urban legends.

Or . . . apparently not. I began to notice that Snopes was taking more of a Leftist tack with things I obviously knew to be true, and was unwilling to revise their opinion when things went more for the right-wing than the lefties. This message board post HERE agrees, especially when it comes to politics; and especially lefty politics.

(And just in case this Message Board post “disappears,” I’ve reprinted the post in toto so it will be archived. Should the author have any problems with that, they can contact me and we’ll fix it post-haste; but as of this printing they haven’t responded to my e-mails.)

For those of you that think snopes is god when it comes to knowing the truth or not. By the way you might want to check this out on snopes.

I present this for your own evaluation.
Who “Snopes” are was written up in READERS DIGEST and agrees with this account.
(no politcal bias was mentioned in the article).


For the past few years http://www.snopescom/ has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the ‘tell-all final word’ on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind snopes.com. Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it – kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team – that’s right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It’s just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby. David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation?

The reason for the questions – or skepticisms – is a result of Snopes.com claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the ‘true’ bottom of various issues.

A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across the Internet, ‘supposedly’ the Mikkelson’s claim to have researched this issue before posting their findings on snopes.com. In their statement they claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign, when in fact nothing of the sort ‘ever’ took place. I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking he would want to get to the bottom of this and I gave him Bud Gregg’s contact phone numbers – and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big exec’s at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to speak with him about it. He never called Bud. In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg that no one from snopes.com ever contacted anyone with State Farm.

Yet, Snopes.com issued a statement as the ‘final factual word’ on the issue as if they did all their homework and got to the bottom of things – not!

Then it has been learned the Mikkelson’s are very Democratic (party) and extremely liberal. As we all now know from this presidential election, liberals have a purpose agenda to discredit anything that appears to be conservative. There has been much criticism lately over the Internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson’s liberalism revealing itself in their website findings.

Gee, what a shock?

So, I say this now to everyone who goes to snopes.com to get what they think to be the bottom line fact ‘proceed with caution.’ Take what it says at face value and nothing more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to and read the sources for yourself. Plus, you can always Google a subject and do the research yourself. It now seems apparent that’s all the Mikkelson’s do. After all, I can personally vouch from my own experience for their ‘not’ fully looking into things.

http://http//www.wikipedia.org/ or http://http//www.snopes.com/

I have found this to be true also! Many videos of Obama I tried to verify on Snopes and they said they were False. Then they gave their liberal slant! I have suspected some problems with Snopes for some time now, but I have only caught them in half-truths. If there is any subjectivity they do an immediate full left rudder.

Truth or Fiction, is a better source for verification, in my opinion.
TruthOrFiction.com-Is that forwarded email Truth or Fiction? Research into stories, scams, hoaxes, myths, and urban legends on the Internet

I have recently discovered that Snopes.com is owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can go to You tube yourself and find the video of Obama actually saying these things. So you see, you cannot and should not trust Snopes.com, ever for anything that remotely resembles truth! I don’t even trust them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore.

A few conservative speakers on MySpace told me aboutSnopes.com. A few months ago and I took it upon myself to do a little research to find out if it was true. Well, I found out for myself that it is true. Anyway just FYI please don’t use Snopes.com anymore for fact checking and make your friends aware of their political leanings as well. Many people still think Snopes.com is neutral and they can be trusted as factual. We need to make sure everyone is aware that that is a hoax in itself.

From KVAL in ever-so-liberal Portland, Oregon; comes this story of peaceful Liberals offended at the Police (naturally), and peacefully expressing their disagreements through tea and cookies seminars.

NOT. {/sarcasm}

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A chanting crowd of at least 200 protesters angry over two recent police-involved shootings marched Monday evening through downtown Portland.

The Oregonian reported that police took at least four people into custody. One officer told dispatchers he had been hit by a rock.

Separately, the Rev. Jesse Jackson was in town Monday. He, too, criticized the recent fatal shootings, calling them “symptoms of a deeper problem of insensitivity and detachment.”

Oh yeah; I’m Suuuuuuuuuuure his being their was completely unrelated to the demonstations. Riiiiiiight. (Parasite!)

On Jan. 29, Officer Ron Frashour shot and killed an unarmed man, Aaron Campbell, in an apartment building parking lot in a situation that started out as a welfare check.

The U.S. Justice Department has launched a civil rights investigation into the shooting of Campbell, 25.

On March 22, Officer Jason Walters shot and killed Jack Dale Collins, a 58-year-old homeless man who reportedly was causing a disturbance in Hoyt Arboretum. The officer said he fired when Collins came at him with a knife and refused to drop the weapon.

Jackson said the lack of resources available to homeless people is an “an embarrassment to the church and to the state.”

Well, not to point out the obvious, Reverend Dumbass, but what has YOUR church done to help the homeless lately? (Oh that’s right – you don’t actually HAVE a church you pastor; you just try to extort money from corporations in Chicago. Sorry, forgot that.)

A grand jury is expected to consider the Collins’ shooting later this week.

During a visit in February, Jackson called Campbell’s death an “execution” and criticized a Multnomah County grand jury’s decision to clear Frashour of any wrongdoing. Jackson’s latest visit was planned before the Collins’ shooting.

A police spokeswoman said the Police Bureau didn’t have a response to Jackson’s comments.

During Monday evening’s protest, police used bicycle officers and officers on horseback in an effort to keep the marchers on sidewalks as they followed a route past the federal courthouse, the justice center and the federal building.

At one point, a window was broken in a Bank of America office.

The protest was the latest of several recent demonstrations in reaction to the police shootings.

Monday’s event was promoted by the Cascadia Convergence Network, which called online for a protest march to mark the second-month anniversary of the Campbell shooting.

A group known as the Black Bloc had also posted plans for Monday’s protest, advising members how to split up and evade police detection by bringing a change of clothing.

And how nice that the “Black Bloc” is helping people evade arrest. Isn’t that some kind of crime? Harboring a criminal or something?  Don’t look for anybody in Oregon to even think about prosecuting this as a criminal act, though.

Just out of curiosity, I wonder who Jesse Jackson calls when he’s in trouble? It sure isn’t the cops.

Obama maybe?

He said WHAT now?


The deeply odd couple of Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Penn.) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) appeared together on a Philly radio station yesterday — and things got ugly in short order.

The exchange, broadcast on 1210 AM’s Dom Giordano Show [but not archived on the station’s site], began when Specter challenged Bachmann to articulate what, exactly, she stands for, according to a readout on the clash published by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s lively Early Returns blog.

Bachmann first laid out her agenda — cutting taxes and killing President Obama’s health reform bill — at considerable length.

When Specter tried to counter, Bachmann, darling of the Tea Party movement, kept on talking, which didn’t sit well with the one-time Philadelphia DA, who is a stickler for politeness and protocol.

“I’m going to treat you like a lady,” Mr. Specter shot back. “Now act like one.”

Ms. Bachmann replied, “I am a lady.”

Oh yeah — that’s what Ms. Bachmann (who is the mother of twenty-eight children (five naturally, 23 foster kids) needs to be told. Yup – that’ll do it.

Audio clip of the exchange HERE (not too long; a bit over two minutes.)

Bachmann was interviewed on Sean Hannity’s radio show HERE and characterized Specter’s rudeness as “I Was Patronized And Basically Told To Sit Down And Shut Up.”

Which, pretty much, she was, really. Hillary Clinton or any other Democrat woman would have demanded an apology bynow.

Later, on Hannity’s Fox News program that night, Bachmann said she was “Stunned” At Specter’s “Arrogance.”

It’s got to be hard to be Arlen Specter today. Your Democrap friends are threatening you if you don’t vote a certain way; your Republican friends won’t return you calls, and rude upstart women interrupt you all the time.

How dare they! Don’t they know who he is? I mean, REALLY!

Joe Conason has an article that’s excerpted at Rasmussen Reports today.

Name not familiar? Here’s some excerpts from his Wikipedia article:

So, just to establish his bona-fides, he’s not only a rabid liberal, he’s also the smear merchant who started the meme about the first President Bush having extramarital affairs.

Oh yeah — really well-sourced “journalist” here. Yeah.  Riiiiiight.

Anyway, here’s the article:

By bowing to Sen. Joseph Lieberman and his obstructive pals in both parties on health care reform, President Obama has confirmed what Republicans always say about Democrats: They simply aren’t strong enough to govern.

Their moment of truth came when Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff and self-styled tough guy from Chicago, urged the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, to strip out the most progressive aspects of the proposed health care reform bill in order to appease Lieberman. Unless the Connecticut senator got his way, he threatened to join a Republican filibuster — conniving with a political minority to kill reforms that a majority of Americans has wanted and needed for decades.

Neither Emanuel nor his boss possesses the courage to call the bluff of the reform opponents and urge a victory for that majority through the legislative process known as “reconciliation,” which allows the Senate leadership to stuff a sock in the mouth of the filibuster.

Not surprisingly, this spectacle of capitulation evokes disgust among many Democrats, surpassed only by the revulsion they feel as they gaze upon Lieberman’s self-satisfied grin.

By now we know that he doesn’t really care what the Democratic Party is all about — especially when the issue is achieving reforms of health care that have been a central objective of Democrats throughout his lifetime. He is said to care much more about avenging his defeat by Democratic voters in the primary three years ago.

But there is no need to speculate on his lowdown motives. Everyone knows he is a servant of the insurance and pharmaceutical industries that have always paid his campaign bills and sometimes maintained his spouse, Hadassah, on their payrolls, either directly or indirectly.

While observing the worst expressions of Lieberman’s character, the public has learned about the president’s defects, as well. Three years ago, Obama supported the Connecticut senator when few liberals would and then defended his senatorial privileges this year, even after he had endorsed and campaigned for John McCain and Sarah Palin in 2008. Now Lieberman has repaid those favors with spite –and that smart, tenacious, cool leader in the White House did nothing but flinch.

Really, it does this conservative Democrat’s heart good to watch the bullies of the Democrap Party begin to turn on each other. Really; I’m just grinning like a madman as I type this. Breeding and culture will tell; and when your bred from hooligans and your culture is corruption and death, it all comes out in the end.  The attack on Lieberman’s wife was a particularly low and obnoxious touch, too.

And just in case you haven’t heard, Mister Conason — Nobody messes with Joe (Lieberman).

As the Leftists push harder and harder to get the Socialish Nightmare of Government Healthcare rammed down our backsides by Christmas, the fragile Leftist coalition of fragile extremists and one-note Johnny’s becomes more and more unhinged at the prospects of having to sacrifice some of their goals to the overall acheivement of Healthcare fo all.

Or just some.

Heck, not that many, really.

Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, once the object of scorn in the Democratic Party, is now sitting in the catbird seat in his opposition to Healthcare:

The White House is encouraging Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to cut a deal with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), which would mean eliminating the proposed Medicare expansion in the health reform bill, according to an official close to the negotiations.

“There is a weariness and a lot of frustration that one person is holding up the will of 59 others,” the official said. “There is still too much anger and confusion at one particular senator’s reversal.”

Hey, Harry? Nobody screws with Joe. Get used to it. It’s the price you pay for endorsing his opponent two years ago, jerk.

And what’s really panicking Harry Reid is that it’ more and more likely that this will be the last chance they get to pass a Healthcare bill:

Cook report: Number of “likely” Democratic House seats down to … 218. A bare majority. Actually, there are only 39 seats listed in the “lean Democratic” and “Democratic toss-up” columns, but as Taegan Goddard points out, if you toss in Bart Gordon’s retirement today in a very winnable GOP district you’re down to the magic number. But never mind that. Follow the first link to Cook and skim the column of “likely Democratic” seats, which are considered safe-ish, to see how many come from districts with a Republican-leaning PVI. If you see multiple retirements in that column — and the NRCC thinks you very well might then suddenly a bunch of seats are in play on top of the 40 that are already shaky.

And then throw in a wild card — say, noted liberal loudmouth Al Franken, who doesn’t care who he offends — and suddenly Democrat camaraderie goes out the window entirely:

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) sparred sharply on the Senate floor Monday evening, a departure from the usually dormant speeches in the august chamber.

Franken said he was struck by a speech in which he said Thune had refused to highlight when benefits to the health care bill would kick in and instead emphasized the negative parts of the bill.

Thune, No. 4 in GOP leadership, asked the freshman Democrat to yield for a question, and asked: “Did the senator from Minnesota, when I was pointing out the chart, understand the point I was making – that the tax increases start 18 days from now, and that the benefits, the spending benefits under the bill which are the premium tax credits and the exchanges that are designed to provide the benefit that’s delivered under this bill don’t start until 2014?”

Franken responded sharply: “Does the senator understand that spending benefits start right away?”

To which, Thune said tersely: “If the senator missed the point, I can get the chart out again.”

Franken said: “I asked a question, senator. I yield to you for a question. I’m asking a question.”

Oh yeah, Al — you’re sure making friends and influencing people up there on Capitol HillTHAT’s for sure.

Meanshile, one of the most respected Dems on the hill — seeing his seat in jeapardy at him in very red Indiana — is getting cold feet over the whole “spend until we’re out of money” idea:

Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) called on President Barack Obama Monday to veto the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that just passed through Congress.

Bayh was one of three Democrats who joined most Senate Republicans in voting against the bill, which combines six of the 12 annual appropriations bills for 2010. He echoed GOP criticism that the bill led to unsustainable spending levels.

“I would hope the president would veto this bill,” Bayh said. “It’s bad for our country’s finances. It’s bad for our children because we are going deeper into debt to China. It sets a terrible example by showing that politicians are totally out of touch with the sacrifices middle class Americans are making.”

The bill passed Sunday by a 57-35 vote.

Starting to ger REeeeeally interesting out there.
