Boy, does Stop The ACLU hit the nail on the head. He is as fed up as I am with the takeover of our country by short-sighted, uneducated South and Central Americans that seem to think this is some kind of giant horn of plenty up here. They even want to take us over. I guess so they can recreate the kind of crap-pile they created where they came from.
Once again EU Referendum brings it home about the cost of our sell-out to the enviro-whackos. I know that sometimes articles such as this can invoke a MEGO (My Eyes Glaze Over) response but try to follow it through. There are some breath-taking figures, especially about wind power but some that deal with solar, as well. I am tired of these naive, knee-jerk ideas that usually center around electrifying everything with electricity that magically appears from windmills or solar panels. Maybe you can be the one that helps someone else wake up to reality. (And he is right about our being completely sold out to the greens. See one of my earlier posts on the subject.)
Travis Monitor blog has this piece on a site that contains a petition to the Texas Legislature asking them to enact a law that will help stop illegal voting. LBJ will roll over in his grave.
This is an exceptional article on EU Referendum. He has really nailed the essence of GW and the enviro-whackos whole agenda. I have a pastor friend that identified this in his own way decades ago when he said that there is a new commandment, “Thou shalt do nothing against the environment”. The more secular the world becomes the more a new belief will take the place of Christianity. It has advanced in Europe beyond what it has here but the advance is happening here, nonetheless. Sites abound that refute the GW’s claims up and down the line but it does no good to point one of the “true believers” to them. They know what their “preachers” have told them. I wish they would use the right phraseology. They say it is settled science. If they were honest they would say, “It’s settled doctrine”.
This article states what we have been preaching for a long time. Every bit of blame can be put on the major environmental groups. They have wormed their way into the national psyche bit-by-bit until it seems that the only sin a person can commit any more is one against the environment. They have been aided and abetted by the schools where they have been preaching social change for decades. They have produced a bunch of Manchurian Candidates that now will knee-jerk respond to the key words “green” or “diversity”.
Dr. Williams does a wonderful job of stating the cause. Thanks to Townhall.com for publishing it. You won’t see this anywhere else.
And yet another article about the findings of some learned people about the world’s biggest ever scam. What keeps people invested in this craziness? Are there that many that are poised to make a large sum of money off of this? (Besides Al Gore, that is.) Is it scientific illiteracy? What?
This is at the Intellectual Conservative. Also see Greenie Watch for some good stuff on the GW debunking.
This is one of the most outstanding articles on nuclear power I have seen yet. It is succinct and to the point. It’s most salient point may be the statistics that the writer gives toward the end of the article. You might be able to use these on your troglodyte enviro-whacko friends.
I apologize for the disjointedness of this piece. It’s the only way I can think of to do it. I wanted you to see what special interest groups are doing to exalt themselves and their constituencies (financial supporters) and, maybe, see how you and I get shafted on the outcome. First read the email from the AMA (slyly titled site) “Patients Action Network”. Notice that it is only for the “patients”, not the doctors. Oh no, perish the thought. Then you can read my reply to the “Patients Action Network” in the space between the dotted-line delimiters. Then, for a counterpoint, go to this site and read the press release from the White House that explains why the President vetoed the act in the first place. It’s all a little microcosm of how things are done in Foggy Bottom and why we are getting the shaft because we don’t have a “Patients Action Network” to spread around campaign contributions and lobby the members. (You can also lay this template right over the environmental whacko groups and see why we’re not drilling offshore or other places in our country where there is abundant oil!)
Have a Happy Political Season!
No. Thank YOU for pushing for a plan that will take money and benefits away from Medicare recipients and damage the Medicare drug plan in order to get a quick fix for your constituents. Are you going to be back in 2020 with your hand out for more?
Shame on you.
I have to say you did a great job of spinning this bill. I’m just sorry you were successful in spreading your political contributions around to the right people.
I will be thanking the lawmakers who voted “no” and that stood up for fiscal responsibily and long term benefits for medicare receivers. I have decided, as a result of your action on this bill, that I will not be unsubscribing from your newsletter. I need to know what to vote against in the future.

By now you know the great news—Congress heard the voices of patients and doctors around the country and voted Tuesday to override President Bush’s veto of H.R. 6331 and preserve access to health care for millions of Americans.
To override a veto, two-thirds of those present in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate must vote “yes.” The magic number needed to override in the House was 285; 65 were needed in the Senate. Thanks to your efforts, the motion to override the veto of H.R. 6331 passed overwhelmingly in the House, 383-41, and by 70-26 in the Senate!
On the day of the veto alone, you and your fellow Patients’ Action Network activists sent over 35,000 e-mails to Congress—with only a few hours notice! Since the cuts were scheduled to go into effect (July 1) until the day they were stopped (July 15), more than 8,500 phone calls were made and 87,000 messages sent to Congress. You are a powerful voice in Washington, D.C., and we appreciate your efforts to get this bill passed!
See how your representative and senators voted, then please take a moment to thank those lawmakers who voted “yes” and stood up for doctors, seniors and our military families. You can use our Patients’ Action Network toll-free hotline at (888) 434-6200.
The enviro-whackos are laughing up their sleeves. They are giving choruses of “We told you so!”. The confounding part of it is that they have caused the problem. This article which comes from Casey’s Research illustrates a little talked about aspect of the “energy crisis”, that being the shortage of heating oil. Why do we have a shortage? Because the above-mentioned whackos have cut off drilling anywhere there’s oil in the U.S. and refuse to allow it. They are convinced they are doing us a favor by forcing us to get off the oil train. Do you feel like you are being done a favor? Neither do I. Thank your congress-weenie when you see them. Tell them how much you like being ripped off. Then thank them for not spending your money on alternative energy research and spending it on Chocolate City recovery (all those mobile homes sitting in a vacant lot in the midwest somewhere). Never fear, though. Nancy will save us all. She wants us to drain the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. I wish somebody would drain her.
It saddens me to write about this. I fear that this is only a precursor of things that may come to pass. I have been convinced for some time that BHO is a very dangerous individual but it seems that even his supporters are as/more dangerous. I am talking about an article that appeared in THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS about a blog that shut down after threats to the blogger. The blog was talking about the now-determined-to-be-fake birth certificate that was presented that shows BHO to be a citizen by birth. The accusation that is on the table is that he is not a natural citizen and, therefore, ineligible to run for President. Wouldn’t that be a bombshell?
This raises memories of the jack-booted brown shirts in Nazi Germany that would strongarm any resistance to Hitler and force them to submit or shut up. Have we come to this?
At least that’s the news in the foreign press. Investor’s Business Daily has an article here on the news and their dismay on the lack of reportage in this country. This is such a shame. The American media is totally given over to politics. To banner news such as this would give aid and comfort to the enemy. At least it would be A & C to THEIR enemy, which is George W. Bush and the conservative right in this country. It goes along with their burying of any negative news about the Obamessiah and pushing his name and smug puss everywhere while they suppress and softpedal anything about McCain or George Bush. I hope and pray that enough people will see through this awful exhibition of partisanship from a sector that is supposed to be impartial. I would love to see it stuffed back down their throat in November.
I keep wondering how much further these airhead liberals can go and they keep pushing it further. This country has become totally rudderless. Their actions are kneejerk. If they are not giving in to the muslims or taking away people’s self-defense weapons, they are pushing some kind of liberal nonsense such as this. This is what you get when you have no national character at all. Our country is flirting with this licentiousness. I hope and pray we can bring it to a halt before we are completely into moral relativism as is England.
Think our public indoctrination centers schools are getting worse? Read what is happening in Australia. His opening paragraph is a universal truth. I used to wonder why the left couldn’t understand the expression, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Then I realized that in their twisted mind it is broke. The schools don’t teach how to be a good liberal. They’re going hell bent on fixing that.
Please go to the ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) site. You will see a link to a petition that is actually being used by them to press the Congress to pass a law to shut down efforts to enact stealth regulations on the broadcast industry. This is something that in the past has been ironically named the “Fairness Doctrine”. There is nothing “fair” about the Fairness Doctrine. It is a thinly veiled move by the left to shut down conservative talk radio as it was a few decades ago before it was repealed at that time. Rush didn’t just appear from nowhere. He came about as a result of the previous “Fairness Doctine” being repealed.
Discerning Texan has a good summation article on the whole subject including the boycott of AP and a discussion on the Fair Use doctrine. I can identify with his evolution as a blogger and his questions about drawing notice to his articles. He does a good enough job that he hooks me more times than not.
It’s a full-time job keeping up with the lefty attempts to shut down dissenting voices. They won’t stop either. I’m waiting for my first visit from the “Truth Police”. I’m thankful for sites such as DT.
