Every other liberal out there is accepting of anything Obama does, even when its the exact same thing they attacked Bush for doing. Yet, Cindy is against a Bush war or a Obama war.
She is a still nutty as a loon, but a consistent loon. She is anti-American and a friend of our enemies, but then again, so is Obama.
Cindy Sheehan has moved to Washington and is protesting Barack Obama’s war:
“Cindy Sheehan says she is moving to Washington. The anti-war activist was outside the White House for the second day in a row, with a bullhorn and a handful of protestors, shouting against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Guantanamo and calling for “health care not warfare.”
Park Police arrested Sheehan and 60 other protestors yesterday, after Sheehan chained herself to the fence on the North Lawn. Sheehan says she refuses to pay the fine and that she and other anti-war activists plan to “step up” their protests until the administration shows a willingness to withdraw U.S. forces from Afghanistan.
“We’re going to create a movement that’s going to demand a change of policy,” she said, explaining that her plan is to create large, coordinated acts of civil resistance, “It’s going to be massive.”
Here is my question, Barney. Did your parents come to America, hide from the authorizes, refuse to identify themselves, and send the money they make back to Germany? Just curious.
See, Barney, there was this place called Ellis Island. All the immigrants who wanted to enter the US went there, were examined, interviewed, recorded, and either allowed in or sent back. They didn’t sneak across the border in the millions. They followed the law.
Perhaps you should do some research before you lie more, Barney. The US had much more restrictive immigration laws during that time than we do now. But, as we know, Barney Frank has never found a lie he didn’t love.
Via Breitbart, a reminder that it’s never too early to Godwin a policy discussion, especially when it’s already super-charged with rage and bad faith. To be clear, he’s not comparing U.S. immigration law to the Holocaust; he’s saying that if immigration law then was like immigration law now, his ancestors never would have made it here and would have ended up in the camps. Which may, for all I know, be true in the particular case of his family, but as a general rule, it’s revisionist history.
House Kills Resolution to Oust Rangel From Chair of Tax-Writing Committee – Political News – FOXNews.com
Party line vote with a few exceptions. What a shock.
Pay your taxes or step down — that’s the message House Republicans are sending to Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., chairman of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee and subject of a major ethics probe into alleged tax evasion and other violations.
House Democrats voted to strike down a resolution Wednesday to remove Rangel from his chairmanship following the reading of a long and stinging list of his alleged wrongdoing.
The resolution stemmed from a major ethics probe into Rangel’s alleged failure to pay his taxes and disclose income on multiple properties — as much as $1.3 million.
This part doesn’t surprise me. One more tax hidden away in the Health Care bill that was only recently “discovered”
For example, the Senate Finance Committee — the very committee on which Bunning serves and attempted to impose the same kind of waiting period, unsuccessfully — just heard from the Joint Committee on Taxation that its new taxes on health-care providers are almost $30 billion higher than anyone thought:
The Joint Committee on Taxation says drug companies, medical device manufacturers and insurers would pay $121 billion over 10 years as a result of taxes in the Senate Finance Committee bill.
That’s compared with $92 billion originally calculated.
The tax experts said the reason for the change is that the companies won’t be able to deduct the fees from their corporate income taxes.
Now for the other part that really doesn’t surprise me, but does disgust me. Dems are desperate to make sure that the bills they create can’t be vetted and examined before they are voted on. They have seen what happens when people learn the truth about what they do and the last thing they want is people to have knowledge before they force the bill through. Otherwise, those racists might point out they don’t want crushing taxes so they can spend hundreds of thousands of dollar for each person this bill is supposed to cover.
This allows them to work out this huge bill, and on the day its going to get voted on, add a page or two to the thousands that will be in it and not have that page seen. There is little question what would be added in that last minute addition.
Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) scoffed at a proposal from Jim Bunning (R-KY) that would require a 72-hour period before the Senate could vote on a bill presented to the floor in order to give Senators — and their constituents — a chance to read the legislation. Durbin told the Washington Examiner that he supports reading bills before votes, but that he suspected the rule was nothing more than an eeeeeeeeevil Republican conspiracy to … do what? Promote literacy? Let Durbin explain:
Democratic leaders are even less eager embrace a Senate-wide rule change. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told me last week that he supports making sure there is enough time for lawmakers to read and understand legislation, but he questioned the motive of Bunning and other Republicans.
“They dream up new ways to slow things down every week,” Durbin said.
It’s hard to imagine the crushing burden of three extra days on a bill that takes months to get through committees, where windbags of both parties bloviate endlessly on trivialities while missing billions of dollars in new burdens on taxpayers.
