No, I won't, Nancy!

From: Nancy Pelosi

Chuck --

The Tea Party Republicans must go. If we hit our fundraising goal of $1.5 Million in grassroots gifts by Midnight Tonight, we’ll have the resources necessary to win in 2012.

If we don’t, it could be two more years of reckless obstruction and radical plans to end Medicare while protecting billionaires and big oil.

With just hours left, we have $6,209 left to go before Midnight Tonight's FEC deadline: Contribute $3 or more right now to defeat Tea Party Republicans and House Democrats will triple-match your gift!

Let’s end the Republicans' game-playing and return the House to a Democratic Majority.

Please give before Midnight Tonight >>

Nancy Pelosi

P.S. We must receive your gift by Midnight Tonight in order to qualify for the Triple Match: Will you contribute right now?



++++++++++++
Nancy, I dream of the day when you are simply a bad memory, when you have been removed from office by the people in your district after they finally see you for the ugly harridan and anti-American socialist wastrel you are.


I agree about the Tea Party - they must go - go on to complete domination in CONgress and the presidency. Then, even if you are still in the House, you can be ignored.

Subject: War on the middle class
From: Barbara Boxer
Date: 9/30/2011 5:48 PM
To: ckuecker@ckent.org





Dear Chuck,
Help us fight back against the GOP attack on the middle class!
Billionaire Warren Buffett pays a lower tax rate than his secretary -- and I thank him for speaking out and drawing attention to this incredible imbalance.

But imagine that! In America today, billionaires can pay a lower effective tax rate than secretaries, firefighters, and nurses. And imagine that those of us, including our president, who support a commonsense solution that asks everyone to pay their fair share are being accused of waging "class warfare" by Republicans -- even while they launch attack after attack on the hard-working American middle class.

Since Republicans took over the U.S. House of Representatives, they've blocked countless Democratic proposals to create jobs, grinding economic growth to a halt. Republican presidential front-runners like Rick Perry are calling Social Security a "Ponzi scheme," and House Republicans are trying to end Medicare as we know it and defund Planned Parenthood.

I founded PAC for a Change to fight back against exactly this kind of extremism. But tonight marks a critical end-of-quarter fundraising deadline, and we need your help -- right now -- to make sure we have the resources to fight back, protect our Senate majority, and maintain our firewall against the GOP's assault on the middle class.

Contribute $5 toward our $25,000 grassroots goal now, before the midnight deadline -- and help us fight back for the middle class now, through the 2012 elections, and beyond!

Last weekend I wrote to you about my partner in the Senate, Dianne Feinstein. And with the BarbaraBoxer.com community's help, we were able to give her campaign a big boost at this important early stage.

Dianne's is just one of the many races where PAC for a Change will stand up for candidates who are speaking out for middle class Americans. Over the years, we have been able to play a key role in winning big races -- like the Senate races in Montana, Missouri, and Virginia that flipped control of the Senate to Democrats in 2006, and Majority Leader Harry Reid's campaign against Tea Party extremist Sharron Angle in 2010.

Now, with Democratic control of the Senate on the line, it's up to us to do it again in 2012 -- and that's why we're making the push to raise $25,000 before our midnight deadline.

Every day we're seeing the damage the extremist right can inflict when they control just one house of Congress. Can you imagine what could happen if they retook control of the Senate or even the White House next fall?

We can't let that happen. Your support, right now, is crucial to building the resources we need to make sure it doesn't.

Contribute $5 toward our $25,000 grassroots goal now, before tonight's midnight deadline -- and help us fight back for the middle class now, through the 2012 elections, and beyond!

There is so much at stake, and so much we must do together to solve the problems we face. I'm grateful for everything you do to help us keep up the fight.

Through my campaigns for the Senate, and through the many campaigns PAC for a Change has been a part of, you've never let me down -- and I know now is no different.

Please contribute to our $25,000 grassroots goal now -- before our midnight deadline!

Thank you for standing with me again.
In Friendship,

Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator

Aside from the misleading "fact" that Buffet's secretary pays a lower RATE - not necessarily lower TAXES, that Social Security IS a Ponzi scheme as defined by federal law, most Americans would like to see outfits like Planned Parenthood not ever again receive a penny of our tax money, that the originators of "class warfare" are the Demonrats and  socialists, and the fact that Demonrats have steadfastly refused to pass bills passed by the Republican House, she is right on the money - she did set up a fund to fight these common-sense reforms and maintain the status quo.
At least contributors to her PAC don't have to worry they might get shanghaied into a "dinner with Osama".

AB 69 and SB 79, proposed bills that would enshrine the Castle doctrine in Wisconsin State law will be voted on soon. Wisconsinites who protect themselves on their own property will no longer be automatically in risk of murder charges if a home invader gets shot while "plying his trade".

Too bad the deadline for these mopes is tonight. I enjoyed watching their increasingly frantic antics.

Chuck --

House Republicans have just released a Tea Party agenda on steroids. They plan to:

  • Cut off funds for NPR and Planned Parenthood
  • Slash education and job training programs
  • Repeal President Obama’s health reform law
It’s not a plan to create jobs. It’s a slap in the face. Now, the world is watching to see how we will respond.

We are just hours away from the first FEC fundraising deadline since President Obama proposed his American Jobs Act.

We must raise $18,102 more by tonight’s midnight deadline to hit our grassroots goal and show that Democrats are strong and united in our fight to win back the House.

Contribute $3 or more before Midnight Tonight’s critical FEC deadline and your gift will be triple-matched by a group of House Democrats.

Republicans are even going after heating assistance for poor families, all while protecting tax breaks for you know who – multi-millionaires and Big Oil companies.

If we’re going to send a message of strength that Democrats across the country are ready and willing to stand up and fight this Tea Party nonsense, we have to do it now.

This isn’t some arbitrary deadline. Once the books close tonight at midnight, that’s it. We need you standing with us.

Chip in before Midnight Tonight’s critical FEC deadline >>

I sure hope NPR, Planned Parenthood, and OsamaCare get cut - that's why we voted the people in office in in the first place!

Education and job training funds? All the education on Earth won't get you a job in a factory in China - only emigration might.

The Taliban did not exist when Reagan mentioned "the Afghan people", and America was still deep in the Cold War with the USSR when this video was recorded.

Too many people don't look past headlines - and this is a major tool of the left. Wake up and research stuff - I know I have been guilty of jumping on a juicy headline more than once.

Just when you thought judges couldn't get more idiotic

one comes along to raise the bar:
+++++++++++++++

WI: No Right to Produce or Eat Food


Alert - National, Action Item — walterj 9:29 am
In scary legal news a Wisconsin judge had gone completely loopy declaring that citizens have no right to produce or eat the foods of their own choice.
In response to a request from the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the judge issued a clarification of his decision last week regarding his assessment of the constitutionality of food rights. The judge expanded on his original statement that such constitutional issues are “wholly without merit.”

He explained that the FTCLDF arguments were “extremely underdeveloped.” As an example, he said the plaintiffs’ use of the Roe v Wade abortion rights case as a precedent does “not explain why a woman’s right to have an abortion translates to a right to consume unpasteurized milk…This court is unwilling to declare that there is a fundamental right to consume the food of one’s choice without first being presented with significantly more developed arguments on both sides of the issue.” Gee, I thought they both had to do with the right to decide what to do with your own body.

+++++++++++++++
So, now our "leaders' can not only tell us what is (in their opinion) healthy, they can dictate that you can't grow your own tomatoes or raise your own chickens?

God help you if you want to drink milk right out of the cow.

A revolution is LONG overdue.

More Fast and Furious

Mexico is getting angry.
+++++++++++++++

Mexican attorney general: "Obama more involved in Fast & Furious than admitted!"


President Barack Obama appears to be getting it from all sides regarding a government snafu dubbed Operation Fast and Furious. Besides both houses of the U.S. Congress and a number of public-interest groups investigating what is being characterized as a rogue federal law enforcement operation,

Mexico's attorney general is infuriated over the allegations that the U.S. was behind the smuggling of weapons into Mexico that ended up killing her countrymen.

In a statement released by Mexican Attorney General Marisela Morales, she called Operation Fast and Furious “an attack on Mexicans’ security.”

Morales told Mexican reporters that she is demanding a full and honest explanation from the United States government especially since evidence is being gathered that reveals the Obama administration was more involved in Operation Fast and Furious than top officials admitted in their sworn statements.

If what is being reported is true, U.S. Attorney General and other government officials may have committed perjury and/or obstruction of justice if it's proven they lied when testifying before House and Senate committees.

And where does the buck stop, Mr. Osama?

Friend --

Not everyone knows how to prepare for a dinner like this. As someone who's eaten countless meals with my husband, I want to tell you the one thing to do if you're selected to join him...

Just relax. Barack wants this dinner to be fun, and he really loves getting to know supporters like you.

I hope you'll take him up on it before Friday's deadline.

Will you donate $3 or more today and be entered to have dinner with Barack?

These dinners mean a lot to Barack. They're a chance for him to talk with a few of the people who are driving the campaign -- and a chance for him to say thank you.

So come prepared to tell your story, and say whatever's on your mind.

Don't miss the opportunity to be there. Donate $3 today, before the September 30th deadline:

Thanks,

Michelle

I wonder if the "House Democrats" finally ran out of matching money?


Not only is the First Buttcrack* now adding her pleas to the chorus of pitiful cries for money, you get
entered into a sweepstakes to have dinner with The Won himself.

From the Osama website:

Want to join President Obama for dinner?

Make a donation today to be automatically registered for a chance to have dinner with President Obama and three other supporters.
And here I thought private sweepstakes and lotteries across state lines were illegal under federal law...

From this site:

To avoid being classified as an illegal lottery, sweepstakes must ensure that at least one of these elements is missing. Because prizes and luck are central to sweepstakes where the winners are drawn at random, legitimate promotions can never have consideration.
That means you will never have to pay to enter legitimate sweepstakes and purchasing a product will not improve your odds.
Seems to me that "making a donation in order to be entered" is "consideration".

Calling Eric Holder...


*Funny story - a few years ago back when The Won was a lowly Illinois senator, my brother-in-law and his wife were in "good seats" at Wrigley Field. They were sitting right behind the Osamas, and he was directly behind Michelle.


She was wearing fashionably low-cut pants, and he had a perfect view of her buttcrack for the entire game.


It scarred him for life.

Let's suspend democracy until Osama get it right!

As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending congressional elections for the next couple of years.
“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”

++++++++++++++++++
You know who "suspends  democracy"? Tin-horn banana republic dictators and Demonrats, that's who.

Hey, Governor Perdue- you don't joke about stuff like that. It's not PC.

'Terrorist watch list' gun bans likely for life, even if cleared of wrongdoing


Getting one's name removed from the FBI's "terrorist watch list" is not so simple a matter as merely being cleared of whatever supposedly nefarious activity got it put there in the first place.  From the New York Times:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is permitted to include people on the government’s terrorist watch list even if they have been acquitted of terrorism-related offenses or the charges are dropped, according to newly released documents.
Well that's funny.  The Brady Campaign's Dennis "What People?" Henigan, readers will remember, is a huge fan of various legislative proposals to either block firearms purchases by those on the "terror watch list," or to empower the Attorney General to unilaterally block those sales, on the basis of his determination that the prospective buyer is a "suspected terrorist."  Henigan has acknowledged that people will inevitably be wrongly swept up in that net, and denied the ability to legally purchase a gun--but don't worry:
Advertisement
If the Lautenberg/King approach were to become law, there would no doubt be some mistakes made, in which gun sales are blocked due to incorrect information, mistaken identities, or other problems. Recognizing that no public policy applied in the real world is perfect, the Lautenberg/King legislation provides for mechanisms to correct such mistakes while making it harder for terrorist suspects to arm themselves.
Keep in mind that in what Henigan refers to as "the Lautenberg/King approach" (this congressional session's versions being S.34/H.R. 1506) effectively make the appeals process worthless.  This is because those bills allow the government to, in presenting "evidence" of the appropriateness of branding the prospective gun buyer a "suspected terrorist," use redacted documents, to protect "sensitive information."  Back in June, Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) showed us how far the Department of "Justice" is willing to go in redacting "sensitive" information ("sensitive" in that case, apparently because it might have lead to some accountability for the "Project Gunwalker" atrocity).
Back to the New York Times article--a former Department of Homeland Security official's response to a civil libertarian's objection that in America, the accused is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty:
But Stewart Baker, a former Homeland Security official in the Bush administration, argued that even if the intelligence about someone’s possible terrorism ties fell short of the courtroom standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt,” it could still be appropriate to keep the person on the watch list as having attracted suspicion.
Mr. Baker noted that being subjected to extra questioning — or even kept off flights — was different than going to prison
As blogger Thirdpower points out, you're "Guilty until proven innocent--and then you're still guilty."
Henigan went incandescent with outrage when House Judiciary Committee Republicans killed a proposal to block gun sales to those on the "watch list."  How likely is it, one might wonder, that he will change his mind, knowing now that if he gets his way, denial of the Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms would not end with being found not guilty of any wrongdoing?

Just kidding--there's no need to wonder about that, of course--that's just how Henigan likes it.

Guilty until proven innocent, and then, you're still punished. That's the America that Osama and his ilk want for us - and by "ilk" I include all those RINOs including Bush #2 who put this un-Constitutional bureaucracy in place.

Dig, baby, dig!

Wisconsin has taconite deposits, and we need to get them out to make the economy move.
++++++++++++++
By Alissa Smith and Kirsten Adshead | Wisconsin Reporter
MADISON — Controversy is brewing amid renewed discussions of expanding mining in Wisconsin, as partisan bickering Tuesday threatened to overshadow the policy debate — how to encourage mining while protecting Wisconsin's natural environment.
 
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, is forming a special committee aimed at writing legislation to streamline the mine-permitting process, while addressing concerns that killed a similar proposal this spring.

Arguably, however, the committee's beginning has been less than auspicious.
 
Fitzgerald and Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller, D-Monona, traded barbs Tuesday over which Democrats would be appointed to the committee, and by whom.
 
Fitzgerald spokesman Andrew Welhouse said Fitzgerald will meet with Democrats on Wednesday morning to find a consensus, “because at the end of the day we do want to create a committee that is focused on creating jobs.”
 
The legislation isn't directed solely at Gogebic Taconic LLC's planned open-pit iron mine in Wisconsin's Northwoods, but that proposal is driving the discussion.
 
Gogebic has leased the mining rights to 22,000 acres in the Penokee Range near Ashland. But its efforts in the spring to lobby for a faster permitting process with fewer environmental restrictions failed.
 
But lawmakers are revisiting the issue as they strive to boost Wisconsin's sagging economy.
 
“There is certainly a lot of controversy about it," Ashland City Administrator Pete Mann said. "I think the easiest way to see the impact is to visit some of those areas where mining exists at present and see what the benefits and drawbacks have been.” 
 
According to a study by North Star Economics Inc., a Madison-based economic consulting firm, Ashland and Iron counties look to gain around 2,800 jobs. 
As of August, Ashland and Iron counties have unemployment rates of 9.1 percent and 9.3 percent, respectively, among the highest in the state. Comparatively, Wisconsin's statewide unemployment rate was 7.9 percent.
 
Environmental groups are concerned that, in making statutory changes to speed up the permitting process — which, under law, takes a minimum of two years — the Legislature will harm the environment and allow inadequate public input in the process.
 
++++++++++++++
Why do ANY Demonrats need to be on the committee?

Anything that causes "environmental groups" concern is a good thing as far as I am concerned!

Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- It seems that the speed and reach of social media is biting the 87 year old anti gun Senator on, shall we say .. the rear.

Lautenberg’s Facebook page is filled with 100′s of Wall post from Facebook members complaining about everything from the Senators lack of reply to constituents request for meetings and information, to his support for New York chronie Mayor Bloomberg and his gunban front group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, to folks questioning how he stays true to his Oath of Office and the Constitution in the face of his repeated attacks on the Second Amendment.

Lautenberg, an unabashed supporter of more gun control, seems to have sprung a leak on his stodgy image as a man of the people and we would venture to guess that the intern that is assigned to edit the Senator’s Facebook Wall is likely to get a tongue lashing from the Aging Senator’s staff as they go back and delete the many frank posts calling the Senator to the carpet.
