Afghanistan war tax, War surtax, David Obey, Carl Levin, Democrats, Representative Obey, Senator Levin, Senate Armed Services Committee, General Stanley McChrystal

Representative David Obey and Senator Carl Levin, both Democrats, want a new tax to pay for additional troops in Afghanistan. We already have another asshole Democrat, Barack Obama, who is supposed to be Commander in Chief, who is politicizing the war.

Sorry about the asshole reference, but since it is the truth, that is what I promised.

General Stanley McChrystal, handpicked by Obama, requested 40,000 more troops 3 months ago.

From Fox News, November 24, 2009.

“Lawmakers Propose ‘War Surtax’ to Pay for Troop Increase in Afghanistan”

“Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., and Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., are proposing new taxes to pay for more U.S. troops in Afghanistan.”

“Two top Democrats say they want to impose a new tax on the wealthy to finance any increase in U.S. troops for the Afghanistan war. 

Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., chairman of the purse string-controlling House Appropriations Committee, is calling the idea a “war surtax.” He said that just as the federal government is expected to pay for its proposed intervention in the health care sector with new taxes, any escalated involvement in Afghanistan should come with a payment plan. 

“If we have to pay for the health care bill, we should pay for the war as well … by having a war surtax,” Obey told ABC News in an interview that aired Monday. “The problem in this country with this issue is that the only people that has to sacrifice are military families and they’ve had to go to the well again and again and again and again, and everybody else is blithely unaffected by the war.” 

Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is making a similar demand. 

President Obama plans to hold his ninth meeting Monday evening with his national security team to discuss options for overhauling the strategy in Afghanistan. The president has been considering requests for tens of thousands more U.S. troops from his top commander, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, for nearly three months. He is not expected to announce his new strategy before Thanksgiving. 

But any request would likely come with a hefty price tag. One option presented by McChrystal would bring 40,000 more troops into Afghanistan — a proposal estimated to cost about $40 billion, according to the Office of Management and Budget. 

Obey said if an increase like that is approved without any payment mechanism, then other domestic initiatives would be wiped out. ”

So, let me get this straight. The Democrats, led by Obama, Pelosi and Reid, are trying to ram an unpopular, costly health care bill down our throats. They are trying to implement a Cap and Trade bill based on documented liberal lies. Obama has delayed a decision on sending troops to Afghanistan for three months. And now these low life, socialists want to further politicize the war.

The troop buildup may take place in this country.

Militia.

  1. I am ready to talk to a congressman.
    This asshole has to be stopped.
    I draw the line at continued politicizing of the war.

  2. Waiting on information for recall, that would be Carl Levin, as well as Debbie Stabenow Michigan Senators. Not all states allow for recall, Michigan does. Hopefully I will get info. soon.

  3. Ooops, I jumped the gun on a post that popped up at resistnet, and thought it was another case.

    Disregard my two post above 🙂 that are in moderation.

  4. I sure do hope BO’s holding things up in Afghanistan will be his downfall, finally. Those poor guys need a lot of buddies over there with them right now. BO is such a jerk!

  5. Another indication of where the usurper’s loyalties lie. It isn’t with the U.S.M.C.

    Obama Sides with Terrorists

    Bill Levinson says that the Obama Justice Department is seeking to block enforcement of judgment against Iran for murder of 241 United States Marines.

    In 1983, 241 United States Marines were murdered by a suicide bombing. A Federal court ruled that Iran was complicit. The court ordered Iran to pay the families of the murdered service members $2.65 billion. The Boston Globe reports that the Obama Justice Department has, in an effort to appease Iran, intervened to quash the judgment; in other words, Barack Obama has sided openly with terrorists who murder U.S. Marines.

    IsraPundit blog reported previously that the Obama State Department (Hillary Clinton) has cut off funding for Freedom House and other organizations that report on human rights violations in Iran and other countries. Now Obama and his Justice Department (Eric Holder) have made themselves, at least morally if not legally, willful accessories after the fact to terrorism against the Armed Forces of the United States.

    What about rule of law, Holder? Didn’t you swear to uphold the law when you took office? That is what you tell us all the time when you say your duty requires you to prosecute CIA personnel for alleged mistreatment of terrorists — and don’t forget the Black Panthers, either. The truth, Eric Holder, is that your “duty” seems to consist of selective enforcement of laws to meet the needs of Barack Obama.

    The law, as interpreted by a Federal court, says that Iran is liable for its role in the murder of 241 United States Marines. Obama and Holder wish to deny justice to the Marines’ families so they can appease the butchers of Tehran. Barack Obama has accordingly forfeited the trust and respect of the American people and the Armed Forces, noting again that his Administration has made itself at least morally an accessory after the fact to terroristic violence against the Armed Forces. We cannot possibly imagine how any United States Marine would now want to be posted to the White House, which was once a position of honor but which would now involve saluting and saying, “Sir,” to an individual who seeks to condone the murder of Marines.

  7. UPDATE ON UKRAINE PLAGUE – Still going strong!

    and STILL A MEDIA BLACK OUT ON IT.

    We heard all about all the parties since “O” took office tonight, but have we heard anything about this?

    “The Ukraine plague (as we call it until we know exactly what it is) is not slowing down, since yesterday 43 583 people got infected which brings the number of infected or affected people to 1679237, yes that is more than 1.6 million people in this short time.”

    “9 People died since yesterday which bring the number of deaths to 397. It is easy to read statistics like this but those are real people that died of something spreading so rapidly and no word seems to come out from Ukraine which according to a blogger there (which cant be named) there is still a media blackout.”

    “Reports of the same disease / plague / virus that is now in Iowa, USA that came out yesterday from doctors but no confirmation has been given.”

    You are right – complete assholes! Tax this and Tax that – soon there won’t be any to live on miserably!

    Someone needs to reminds these a-holes that taxes are:
    1. Not legal since 1913
    2. Taxes were only suppose to be collected for national security and gov. offices. Not the entire dang nation! Enough is enough.

    Does anyone have active military in their family? I’m curious as to how our troops feel. I’m ready for a military coup. Seriously!

  10. We watch daily as our Congress & Senate set by and watch our Constitution Shredded and our Freedoms Trampled on without protest. Now is the time for all of us to demand they stand up and protect the Constitution and our Freedoms or face removal bye either recall or forced removal. Waiting until 2010 is fast becoming less of an option. There is no representation for we the people. We occasionally have someone step forward and make a few statements to show they care and then rescind into silence again until we the people rise up again. We need someone now with COURAGE to lead we the people to Washington to restore our Constitution and remove all that have raped our Country. I have no doubt, if that leader comes forward the military will follow to. Otherwise we can sit by and watch the rest of our freedoms dissolve. God Bless America before it’s to late!!!

  11. CBS News is on-Obama made a decision on Afganistan the word used was “agonized”. He will do a TV report some time next week to announce his decision to the “American people”. American people those who live in America not in a government job, whom the government especially the Democrats do not listen to, expect to pay all the bills, insult their intelligence when they are not outright lying to them. Global warming the most recent examples, on top of Fort Hood, ACORN, SEIU etc.

    Could this be a situation the Seals could use to expose Obama?

  15. CW must be very angry. He doesn’t usually talk like that.

  16. Army D.A.V. One of my brothers friends was a Navy Seal-I never heard of a soldier having to give an enemy Miranda warnings. Soldiers? or Police Men? What nit-wit would even give orders like that.

  17. Wasn’t it for assault? They gave the terrorist a fat lip.

  18. Kidmon

    He’a already been exposed !. The Military is the low man on the totem pole . Kidmon , you out rank a five star general and CIC .

    Friend or Foe , Fog of war ,?? we need more RECON .

    Roger out.

    I truly am beside myself. Just LOOK at these headlines:
    Three Navy SEALs are facing court-martial for allegedly assaulting and mishandling a detainee they captured in Iraq in September, military officials said.
    and
    Bomb attacks and a firefight killed four U.S. troops in 24 hours in Afghanistan, the military said Monday, adding to the growing toll as NATO and the U.S. consider whether to send more forces to the war.
    Are you furious? Outraged? The sight of Obama and his tasteless, tacky Michelin-steel belted wookie wife make me nauseous. I am gagging. Have there ever been more despicable people than these filth encrusted slimes occupying our White House and destroying every American institution? Obama, Eric Holder, Rahm Emanual, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett. Their foul stench chokes us and permeates our nation’s Capitol, spreading their fetid stink across the fruited plains. Lord God forgive us for our apathy and complacency. Our selfishness. We are reaping what we have sown. The worst of the worst.
    It looks like the “paper hanging SOB” is lurking in DC, phonus potus CIC.

  20. Couldn’t they say they didn’t read the Miranda because the orders came from an imposter.usurper.?? Someone?

  21. I had military in my family, and he was in two tours of Iraq and now he’s out, yet he’s still in the national guard. But he does still contract for a major company, which also makes him working for the military, and get this, he doesn’t have to pay taxes on the first $80,000. NO joke! But he is in harm’s way, though. That must be kept in mind. This is my son-in-law. He is in harm’s way because he’s in Afghanistan, yet while he’s a contractor, he’s still working for the military of the United States, if this makes sense to you.

  22. Kim.
    I am pissed!
    Playing political games with soldiers lives infuriates me.

  23. This is dedicated to the Navy Seals and all of our men and women in the Military who not only have to fight wars on many fronts, but the worst evil the world has ever known-the abject stupidity coming out of DC. 9/11 was strike one, Fort Hood was strike two. We don’t want a strike three or maybe the three Navy Seals is strike three.

  24. Michelle,

    Barry had better not piss the SEALS off, they can stand off at over 2,500 yards and take out any soft target.

    2,500 yards, that’s one and a half miles away with a one shot kill.

    Think about how far 1.5 miles is.

  27. This reminds me of a Navy Seal veteran I met some years ago .

    Got a call from a NAM vet , a Navy Seal , 100% disabled and the city was going to evict him from his residence and condemn his home .

    Suffering from PTSD his entire life and no family he very seldom left his house .

    Myself and three other officers went to his house to see what we could do . We came back with a volunteer crew and began with the repairs . We thanked him for his service and gave him a certificate of appreciation , he said that was the first time anyone has thanked him for serving.

    Great story huh…..

    The city still evicted him because the repairs were not made by a licensed contractor.

    The last time I heard the VA took him in as a resident.

  28. Bringing over:
    PLEASE PASS THIS FAR AND WIDE, THIS WILL BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT

    Please read and act, only takes a minute!

    On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a
    two-page amendment courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn that would
    require all Members and their staffs to enroll in any new
    government-run health plan. It took me less than a minute to sign up
    to require our congressmen and senators to drink at the same trough!
    Three cheers for Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana!
    Congressman John Fleming (Louisiana physician) has proposed an
    amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the same
    healthcare plan they force on us (under proposed legislation they are
    curiously exempt).

    Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his Website and
    sign his petition (very simple – just first, last and email). I have
    immediately done just that at:

    http://fleming.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=55§iontree=29,55

    Please urge as many people as you can to do the same!

    If Congress forces this on the American people, the Congressmen should
    have to accept the same level of health care for themselves and their
    families. To do otherwise is the height of hypocrisy!
    Please pass this on!!

  29. Richard-I hope all of our Military and all of WE THE PEOPLE stand behind-around-in front of our Navy Seals. I think Andrea Shea King/Radio Shea Patriot hit the nail on the head with her remarks.
    “Obama, Eric Holder, Rahm Emanual, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett. Their foul stench chokes us and permeates our nation’s Capitol, spreading their fetid stink across the fruited plains.” Not one of this group should be allowed at a military funeral their mere presence is disgusting.

  30. OT – need some prayers for the family of a Kent State student that was beaten unconscious a week ago and died this past Saturday from the injuries. I did a search on his name and came across the most vile article that has literally made me ill. I pray it is a sick joke and not a real situation. If the article is for real, God help KSU.

    An Appeal To The American People

  32. ARMY D.A.V. -Thank you for the story re: the disabled Seal. What a cruel government, and an even worse city. These stories need to be published far and wide. When we used to have to go to Hines Veterans Hospital we used to see so many soldiers from all of our wars. Every American should pay a visit to our veterans hospitals-and thank our military and ask if they have needs like this man.

  33. Michelle,

    You didn’t here it from me, but there does exist a hit squad in several of our agencies.

    During the Clinton adm. fiasco, it was rumored that a potential hit was about to get o’l Bill. Again, it was a rumor, but if a strong feeling of treason exists, someone could theoretically get a lead sleeping pill.

    The rumor involved a former C.I.A. Director, several Generals, and the Chief of Naval Operations, by the name of Admiral Jeremy Borda.

    Not sure about the rumor on wild Bill, but the hit squads are very real.

    Even if they say they don’t exist any more.

  34. Now is the time for all of us to demand they stand up and protect the Constitution and our Freedoms or face removal bye either recall or forced removal. Waiting until 2010 is fast becoming less of an option

    Joy,
    You said it right above. We have been patient, more than patient with this fraud in the WH and the jokers in Congress. I say don’t wait in states where there is an option to recall. Things are so out of control, not good.

  35. Michelle

    Thank you ……..

    Isn’t Dearborn filled with Muslims? No reason to be passing out Korans in English, however.
    You know there is a huge mosque in Toledo, too.
    I’m in OH and very suspicious about what goes on at that mosque.

    treachery: an act of deliberate betrayal

    Was this in a local MI paper? Do you have a link or two you could post?

    This is extermely unsettling. The way to flush it out is to expose it!

    Anything you have would be appreciated!

  40. ARMY D.A.V.

    What’s it going to take to get America all on the same page together ?

    Is it going to take getting a couple of our beloved cities bumped off with a massive asymmetrical from our so called peaceful Muslim brothers ?

    Is it going to take having all of us stand in bread lines with a water jug in our hands ?

    It seems that the answer is repetitious communication to the masses, the masses that are simply looking the other way.

    I agree, there should not be any veteran found to be in need anywhere in this land.

    The U.S. could get a wake up call and become very mindful of the fact that freedom is not free, it must be earned and defended.

    This country is crying for a strong watchman at the gate.

    Barry is sound to sleep, you can hear him snoring, and probably left the Nuclear football out on the front porch.

    Maybe one of those pissed off D.C. rats will bite him on his boney a@# and give him the Hantavirus.

    Imagine a company that had their entire employee group, united in the cause.

    The IRS shows up at one of the employees houses that has failed to file his income tax returns, and that employee calls his boss, and he sends out a page to all other employees to show up at Billys house RIGHT NOW!

    They all show up with guns, and stand their ground, the news stations show up, more citizens in the area show up with their guns, and before you know it …..

    BAM! …….. The Employer agrees to have his employees stand down, under one condition.

    The local news station has to play this clip from the Continental Congress 2009 on their airways.

  48. SueK—this may be of interest to you….

    By Debbie Schlussel
    How nice. Out of the goodness of their big ole Islamic terrorist-lovin’ hearts, my friends at the HAMAS-front group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) is giving out free Korans. No word on whether they are sending the real version or the edited one, which conveniently leaves out the suras about “taqiyah” (permitted deception) of and killing us Infidels. There are several “translations,” most of which conveniently leave out those sections about their hate for and desire to kill us, as I predict CAIR’s version, Abdullah Yusuf Ali’s translation, is likely to be. Since CAIR, which got it’s seed money from Moussa Abu Marzook (HAMAS’ political director, now under U.S. indictment), and now gets funding from Saudi Arabia and the Makhtoum Foundation of Dubai, UAE, I recommend ordering as many Korans as possible, if only to waste their money, so it can’t be used on other Islamist anti-American, anti-Semitic, and anti-Christian propaganda.

  55. SueK— Korans distributed in Houston…

    Residents Angered by Group’s Distribution of Korans

    Some Houston residents are upset after Korans were left on the doorsteps of hundreds of homes in their neighborhood as part of a campaign to educate people about Islam.

    Residents of Braes Timbers in southwest Houston began finding the holy books two weeks ago, MyFOXHouston.com reported. The Korans came with a note saying they had been left by the Book of Signs Foundation, which claims to have distributed 30,000 free copies of the texts to residents throughout the city.

    “If we went into a Muslim country and left a Bible, we would be in prison and then decapitated a few years later,” Sue Ann Pieri, a resident who chose not to destroy the book, as other neighbors did, told MyFOXHouston.com.

    The foundation, which left the books on doormats or hanging from doorknobs, said in a note accompanying the Koran that “rather than judging Islam and Muslims by the actions of a few, we want our fellow citizens to judge us by the book that influences and guides the lives of over 1 billion Muslims.”

    Tarick Hussein, the president of Houston’s Council on American-Islamic Relations, told the station he believes the Book of Signs Foundation wants to educate non-Muslims about the religion.

    He told MyFOXHouston.com: “This is a very peaceful way of conveying a message.”

    Well isn’t this just perfect. Handing out the blueprints that detail how Islam is going to rule the world. People who haven’t read this dogmatic book should read it (It’s always a good idea to have as much knowledge about your enemy as possible) and then keep it as hedge against a ‘toilet paper shortage’.

    Hi Maddie,

    Thanks. Scary.

    Interesting proposition, but I wouldn’t order the Koran or even look at a book whose members are cultists. No sense reading it and trying to understand..there is no understanding their philosophy.

    Sorry, but they all have to *go!* Religion of peace my arse.

  58. Spitting mad time again! I swear the “to be boycotted” list is getting longer than the businesses to support!!!!

    If anyone buys from Best Buy, you might want to look at this Thanksgiving day ad that included a muslim greeting. Then please vote on the site whether this will affect your future shopping. You know MY vote!!

    “Merry Christmas” is off-limits, but “Happy Eid al-Adha” is apparently okay.

    Best Buy is raising eyebrows with a Black Friday ad which extends a holiday greeting to Muslims for the annual Eid-al-Adha holiday, or in English, the “Festival of Sacrifice,” which coincides with the Thanksgiving weekend this year.”

    http://www.kdvr.com/news/kdvr-best-buy-eid-greeting-112409,0,7440075.story

    P.S. You’ll be glad to know that CAIR supports the ad.

    Free Quran coming to your doorstep?
    Foundation: ‘Just trying to be honest brokers of information. You make your own judgment’

    ——————————————————————————–
    Posted: May 17, 2008

    © 2009 WorldNetDaily

    If you’re in your front yard, working in the flower bed or chatting with a neighbor, they’ll pass by silently to attach one of the bags they’re carrying to your frontdoor knob and leave without speaking or engaging you in debate.

    Their mission? To place a copy of the Quran in every home in the United States.

    “We’re just trying to be honest brokers of information,” Wajahat Sayeed, founder and director of Book of Signs, which is also known as the Al-Furqaan Foundation, told the Chicago Tribune. “You make your own judgment.”

    Al-Furqaan is distributing its 378-page paperback English translation of Islam’s holy book using teams of paid walkers who descend on neighborhoods, going door-to-door, much like other deliverers of newpapers and advertisements. They don’t hand them directly to residents but, instead, leave them at the front door – but never on the ground. That would be disrespectful.

    The translation’s forward asks readers to treat the book with respect. Those objecting to the free copy of the Quran are requested to call the foundation phone number to have it retrieved or to make a donation to a local mosque.

    According to Sayeed, who checks for messages daily, 30 percent are appreciative, another 30 percent are indifferent and requesting that the book be taken back and the rest are often filled with expletives.

    “It is not pleasant to hear that after all the effort you made,” said Sayeed, who works full time for the foundation in addition to being a strategy consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers.

    The Addison, Ill.-based organization says it has distributed more than 30,000 free copies of the Quran to homes around Houston, Texas, and another 70,000 in the Chicago area, including the evangelical stronghold of Wheaton.

    Al-Furqaan’s horizons go far beyond those two urban areas. The foundation aims to deliver copies of the Quran to every U.S. household. On its website, those interested can order copies by paying a shipping and handling charge. Sayeed is not concerned his American readers might be unable to understand the text.

    “The general sense will be clear,” he said, noting the foundation had chosen a translation Americans can easily read. “Islam teaches peace.”

    Al-Furqaan is not the only Muslim group distributing free Qurans.

    WND reported in 2005, the Council on American-Islamic Relations came under fire for distributing a free English-language edition of the Quran that had been banned by the Los Angeles school district because commentary notes accompanying the text were regarded as anti-Semitic.

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations had previously included the edition in the Islamic book-package it offers libraries nationwide and was giving it away to help “improve America’s image” through a program called “Explore the Quran.”

    A complaint by a history teacher revealed problems with the CAIR-distributed version.

    Surah (Chapter) 2:65 of the Quran, which reads like most English versions, says: “And well ye knew those amongst you who transgressed. In the matter of the Sabbath; we said to them: ‘Be ye apes, despised and rejected.”

    In his corresponding note, the commentary reads: “There must have been a Jewish tradition about a whole fishing community in a seaside town, which persisted in breaking the Sabbath and were turned into apes.”

    Under the heading “Jews” in the book’s index, is a reference to Surah 5:60, which says: ” … Those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some he transformed into apes and swine … .”

    In the index under “Jews” also are these phrases: “cursed,” “enmity of,” “greedy of life,” “slew prophets,” “took usury,” “unbelief and blasphemy of” and “work iniquity.”

    Author and researcher Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, said that while the commentary notes in the CAIR-distributed version are particularly anti-Semitic, its rendering of the Quranic text largely is no different than any other version.

    “It’s an indication that what we think of as extreme in Islam is not really extreme but mainstream,” he told WND. “You won’t find a translation that doesn’t have Jews being turned into apes and pigs.”

    Sorry so long, but we need to know what they are
    doing.

  60. didn’t mean to post special offers and previous
    stories above. sorry.

  61. SueK—
    totally agree—nothing peaceful about them or their religion.
    just wanted to get you the info on who was
    dumping them on Americans.
    It is freeky.

  62. “Festival of Sacrifice,”

    I don’t know what this means but it sounds ominous , is this where they see how many virgins they get .

  63. Katie,
    Thanks for alerting us. You’re right, the boycott list is growing by leaps and bounds.

    I will not buy at Best Buys. WTH is going on?
    It’s Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas
    around here. Never heard of that other
    joyful little holiday.

    Frankly, I wish all the Muslims in this country would just leave.

  64. DAV—
    could be, or as you said “ominous” could mean
    how many of us they try to kill.

    I’ll say it again—they don’t like us or our country, then get the h*ll out!

  65. Maddie // November 24, 2009 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks, Maddie, and Best Buy is gonna get a Martha Stewart-type ‘nice’ e-mail from me!

  66. Anyone here on facebook ?, how safe is it ?.

  67. Richard
    “Leo Donofrio apologizes to John Charlton.” I love real classy guys. I think that since everyone is working so hard and the work so intense, those in positions that should have a care and do not cause a level of frustration that is off the charts. One group only caring about the Constitution-WE THE PEOPLE-truth, justice and the American way v/s a government which seems to have gone off its rocker.

  68. Just cussed out Best Buy.

    I buy a lot of music from them, but no more.

  69. GBAmerica-I worked for a company years ago where the “girls” did not know how to apply cash. So stupid. Customer would receive a statement, if the check was not the same as the statement they just threw the checks in a drawer. DID NOT CASH THEM, just threw them in a drawer. This went on for three years-until new management came in-it took my girl friend years to straighten out the mess that they made. First thing the couple should do is retrieve all the paperwork-copies of checks they have starting from disputed date, make a copy, one for them, one for the bank. They need to check account #, it could be a digit or two off, make sure property id is the same for all working on it. This bank may even have embezzlement problems. Taking a thought from jbjd they should send a letter to their State Attorney General, cc: the Bank, and any consumer group that is local. There is an error-they just need to find it. Do they have a common name?, that could be part of the problem.

  70. ticktock-I’m a Democrat, who will not vote for these lunatics. The major reason Obama’s numbers are in free fall is Democrats leaving in droves, most of us didn’t want him anyway. We suspected he was a CREEP, now we are sure. His numbers will never get better, and look at all the scandals that are ready to go Prime Time-ACORN, SEIU, CORRUPTION, 9/11 trial, Fort Hood attack, etc. He is not fit to govern, and three year olds are too young to vote.

  71. SueK-Maddie-
    Muslims are allowed to use “permitted deception” called taqiyah. so what will they do in an American court of law? Especially with the brain dead decision to have trials in New York City. What did the New Yorkers ever do to Obama, is he mad that they survived the 9/11 attacks and fought back?

  72. We better start beating the “Where the BIRTH CERTIFCATE” drum again….a lot LOUDER please!

    Personally, I have never accepted that Barack Hussein Obama is our President.
    If he signs Health Care, Cap and Trade etc., etc., so what,
    Barack your not the President, at least in my mind and I’m sure their are others that feel the same way. Have a nice day Barry!

  73. Maddie-this is so upsetting re: Quran-I used to live in Addison, Illinois this ought to get interesting with all the hot headed Italians who live there. They do not like that kind of garbage-not at all. Wheaton is the county seat for DuPage. Last night on the news a very nice Jewish lady came home to a swastika painted on her door. She was very upset. They paint over that garbage real fast down here. She said it was not the first time so I do not know why she is being targeted unless the person is a stalker besides his other mental problems.

  74. LJ” Citizen government is making a comeback in America.” Yes, very classy. It was a success, three months in the making to do as well as they did, with the forces against them. Everyone that was involved with Mr. Hoffman’s campaign should be proud of themselves. Next time they have something they did not have before-experience.

  75. Michelle // November 25, 2009 at 12:37 am

    I wholeheartedly agree. I posted that response from him because he thought about the constituents in NY/23 and not about dragging out hanging chad ballots. I do think he is a class act! In other words it wasn’t about “him” it was what he thought best for the PEOPLE! He will be stronger for it come next year.

    Newt needs to shut UP. Everytime he opens his mouth he just shows what a RHINO POLITICIAN he is. He is yesterdays news.

  83. When was that video of Newt and Kerry taken? Geesh!! Republicans MUST take part of the blame for this mess because they refused to STAND UP for Conservative values and were too easily duped! They should’ve stayed true to Conservatism even when it wasn’t popular!

    How do we now tell who the heck is truly turning around, and who is just putting their finger to the wind cuz the PEOPLE are mad as hell. This video has me totally turned off to Newt. I realize that alot of people were duped, but if I wasn’t, surely Newt needn’t have been duped! And now it’s such a religion that no matter what the evidence people will refuse to believe the the truth!

  84. Never in my life seen Ed Bagely Jr. so worked up. Definitely on the defense! Poor guy’s had waaaay too much kool aid.

  85. oops forgot to leave the link.

  86. here it is…

  87. >>>Newt Gingrich “The Evidence is Sufficient” on Global Warming<<<<

    NO NEWT, it's BOGUS EVIDENCE. Bogus isn't sufficient.

  88. ** SATIRE**

    CONgress announced yesterday that in the spirit of the “Holiday Season” they will implement a cultural and religious exchange with Gitmo Jihadi Terrorists. The plan is for a Lieberals to take home and sponsor a jihadist over the “Holidays” for them to see how lieberal Christians live and hopefully became their friends and learn something.

    Unfortunatly it was decided that the White House won’t be able to sponsor any jihadist. In this decision one of the sticking points was that there wasn’t enough Christians at the White House for the exchange to be worthwhile. It was said that the jihadist may well feel at “home” and it wouldn’t be a learning experience for either party.

    CHRIST IS KING!

  89. Why don’t they take some of the gold they were giving the Taliban as bribes or all the secret money they have in their coffers for their covert missions and fund the war with that instead of asking for more from us?

    But…forget all this. We should be following the foreign policy as laid out by our founding fathers. Ron Paul has been preaching this for decades, and has written several excellent books on this subject.

    The article titled “The World is The Pentagon’s Oyster” was eye opening (link below). Have a look at it. You’ll be stunned to see our military involvement in so many countries at once. And they have the nerve to ask for more money.

    Good Morning.

    It doesn’t matter if the evidence for global warming is sufficient. This is not about global warming. It is about government control of everything. However, all the data needs to revisited and these ‘scientists’ excluded from taking part.

    If they were serious about global warming, ‘they’ would be putting effort into how to remove co2 from atmosphere and how to use the removed co2. (construction, etc.)

    The cap and tax solution is no solution to anything other than fattening Gore’s and GE’s wallets. China, India, etc. are not going to stop growing.

  92. ARMY D.A.V.,

    good morning.

    I saw your post earlier on this thread about the Vet with PSTD you and your buddies helped. That was a sad, but touching story. Thank you for sharing it.

    Wondered if you saw my post yesterday with the link to a website that offers DVDs/CDs FREE to veterans, their family members, etc.

    The euro has smashed through to a new 2009 high at nearly $1.51, while the dollar has tumbled below parity against the Swiss franc for the first time in 19 months.

    Earlier in the session, the dollar lurched lower against the yen, as sellers of the Japanese currency capitulated on stale bets. The dollar hit a 10-month low of Y87.55.

    The Dollar Index, which tracks the dollar’s value against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, sank to a 15-month low of 74.399.

    Late Monday, the U.S. Federal Reserve set the tone for this fresh bout of dollar weakness. The minutes revealed that the Fed is not yet close to withdrawing economic stimulus. The minutes also said that the likelihood of a disorderly dollar decline was “relatively low”–a sign that it is comfortable with the current pace of dollar weakness.

    Still, as there was nothing particularly new in those comments, it appears to have been the slump in the dollar against the yen, which came earlier in the trading session, that sparked the dollar’s broader tumble.

    That decline makes it even more attractive for traders to sell the dollar, rather than the yen, in seeking higher returns elsewhere.

  96. Hacked climate emails include calls for ‘Earth Government’ as foundation of new world order, splitting of America

    snipped from:
    http://www.infowars.com
    (emphasis mine)

    One of the leaked climate emails was apparently a press release from “Earth Government” Newsletter dated 27 Mar 2003…

    It further refers to an “Earth Court of Justice to deal with all aspects of the Governance and Management of the Earth.” The document also makes mention of the “Foundation for the new world order, Earth Government” and “THE SPLITTING OF AMERICA into separate independent states living at peace for the good of all.”…

    The actual hacked email is posted on infowars.com. It is well worth the read. It lays out how our lives were/are to be governed and the processes by which it would come about. WARNING…expect blood to shoot out of your eyes!

  97. It’s great to know that in the middle of a shooting war, it dawns on some Representatives that money is required to supply the army. We can donate some bullets too. I suggest Representative Obey stop pretending he cares about wasting our money. But he can do the honorable thing, and use one of the donated bullets.

  105. Richard // November 24, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    Michelle,

    You didn’t here it from me, but there does exist a hit squad in several of our agencies.

    During the Clinton adm. fiasco, it was rumored that a potential hit was about to get o’l Bill. Again, it was a rumor, but if a strong feeling of treason exists, someone could theoretically get a lead sleeping pill.

    The rumor involved a former C.I.A. Director, several Generals, and the Chief of Naval Operations, by the name of Admiral Jeremy Borda.

    Not sure about the rumor on wild Bill, but the hit squads are very real.

    Even if they say they don’t exist any more.

    Also, Richard, I just read a few weeks ago that one of the Pres. was taken for a ride to Canada, had a long walk about, and an attitude adjustment by one of the alphabet agencies!!
