Senator Durbin…You are Simply *WRONG* by Aceintex
(Yesterday during the Sotomayor hearing,Senator Dick Durbin quoted) Senator Paul Simon of Illinois during the 1993 Hearings to confirm Roth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court said:
“You face a much harsher judge than this committee. That’s the judgment of history. And that judgment is likely to revolve around the question “Did she restrict freedom, or did she expand it?” Then, he went on to say: “It is the Supreme Court that defines our personal rights to privacy…and decides the restrictions that can be placed on the most personal aspects of our lives. The court decides the rights of the victims of discrimination, immigrants, consumers. The nine justices decide whether Congress has the authority to pass laws to protect our civil rights and our environment. It decides what checks will exist on the Executive Branch in war…and in peace. MY RIGHTS COME FROM GOD NOT NINE JUDGES, OR 100 SENATORS WHO EMPOWER THEM TO JUDGE ME. ”
MY RIGHTS ARE DIVINE RIGHTS. THEY ARE ENDOWED UPON ME BY MY CREATOR! NO SENATOR, CONGRESSMAN, PRESIDENT, OR EVEN SUPREME COURT JUSTICE CAN ADD ONE JOT OR ONE TITLE TO THE RIGHTS THAT ARE GIVEN TO ME BY MY CREATOR! THESE JUSTICES ARE NOT GOD, (LET ALONE A GOD I WOULD WORSHIP) AND THEY CAN NOT GIVE ME ONE RIGHT THAT IS NOT MINE BY RIGHT OF BIRTH.AN DIVINE APPOINTMENT!
Obama-meters on the way… by Steve Milloy at Canada Free Press
Baltimore Gas & Electric is leading the way to electricity rationing, courtesy of President Obama. The utility announced to day that it filed with local regulators an application to install 2 million so-called “smart meters” in the homes of its residential customers. Smart meters allow local utilities to control electricity use in your home. Using a $200 million Department of Energy grant — part of the $787 billion Stimulus Package enacted earlier in the year — BG&E plans to charge customers for the balance of the costs. BG&E claims that benefits to consumers (about $5 per month) will amount to about three times the cost of the meters. Not only is this benefit trivial, it’s pretty phony. It comes from you using less electricity or using electricity at less convenient times — things you can already do without the meter. What’s the benefit from doing less or being inconvenienced? We don’t know about you, but we’re not interested in selling our freedom to use electricity as we choose — especially for a lousy $5/month. Also, consider that, since smart meters allow two-way communication, each meter represents a node from which a hacker can gain entry to the grid and wreak havoc. The ultimate purpose of the meters is to allow local utilities to ration electricity as demand is rising faster than supply, a phenomenon that can be traced to the greens blocking construction of new power plants and transmission lines. Rolling power outages are already being planned for the Baltimore-Washington area starting as early as 2011-2012. Smart is the new dumb.
Minority Broadcasters Seek Financial Bailout by Fawn Johnson for WSJ
WASHINGTON –A group of minority broadcasters asked Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner Monday for financial assistance akin to the aid that has been extended to the financial and auto industries. “Minority-owned broadcasters are close to becoming an extinct species,” the letter said. “Even in better economic times, minority broadcasters have historically had difficulties accessing the capital markets.” The broadcasters told Mr. Geithner they can bounce back if they are given some temporary assistance while the credit markets are slow. “Unlike the auto business, broadcasting has been healthy for many years,” their letter said. The broadcasters appeal follows a proposal sent in May to Mr. Geithner by a group of influential House members asking for a minority broadcaster support program, bridge funding, or government-backed loans.
(Ed note- this is a follow up to a story appearing in an earlier newsletter… it starts here and branches out. The network news divisions and the newspapers of the country have lost their objectivity and turned into nothing more than state-run entities. In greater and greater nubmers, people don’t trust them for news any longer. The less objective they become, the lower their ratings and numbers. Therefore, this bailout will be the payback for the positive press they’ve given and will be used to leverage against any urge they may have to become more objective).
The Two Types of Republicans Liberals Hate by Daniel Greenfield at Canada Free Press
There are two types of Republicans that liberal Democrats hate above all else with an unreasoning venom that borders on madness…
The American Populist represents an American ideal, often Western in nature, and promotes independence, small government and an old fashioned self-centered Americanism. The Populist relies less on bureaucratic advice and more on common sense, gut instincts and thinking about issues from a new angle. The Populist is often not a professional politician, and has a background or hobbies that define him more than his political career does. Models include Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Sarah Palin. Liberals routinely denounce the populists as stupid, mentally incompetent hicks who can barely tie their shoes… At a cultural level, liberals react with the innate distaste of class warfare to populists, the way the Bourbons did to peasants presuming to tell them what to do. At the ideological level, the American Populist is coded as representing the classic American values of hard work, individualism and the American Way, that they have been doing their best to stamp out for generations, by replacing them with their own values of collectivism, tolerance and global collaboration. The Populist automatically subverts this process by reminding the American public of what being an American really means.
The second Republican type to trip Liberals haywire is the Government Organizer. The Organizer is often gruff, matter of fact and projects competence. He is not charismatic, in fact he’s often anti-charismatic, being unattractive and unappealing. A longtime career politician, he relentlessly and aggressively pursues goals that he believes will benefit the country, regardless of the obstacles. His competence however cannot compensate for his perceived unpleasantness, or ruthless attitudes. Worse yet to many liberals he represents a “bad father” figure who is ominous and threatening. Models include Richard Nixon, Dick Cheney and John McCain.
These two types not only comprise the two types of Republicans that draw obsessive liberal hate, but they also comprise the most visible Republican Presidents and Presidential candidates.
