How Cold Is Planet Earth Getting? Ask The Sun

December 20, 2010

For sure the warmists have no clue.

You can hide the heat, but faking the cold and snow, not going to work. People don’t pay close enough attention to the weather to see the shenanigans with the hot side — But freeze their junk and they notice.

Australia’s summer interrupted by snow — Bitter summer freeze bites eastern states as summer gives way to snow and cold. Remember, down-under it’s like “June” in the northern hemisphere.

And here I bet you thought the cold was only where it was supposed to be winter.


Big Pharma Shrugs

December 20, 2010

Mandated price reductions produce mandated drug scarcity. Who could have seen that one coming?

There once was a baker who made delicious pies.

Then the government came, and ordered him to sell his pies for less.

While he used to get up at dawn, to bake his lovely pies, he now slept in.

He began getting up later and later and then just slapped the pies together, who cares, they are free.

And then the pies became half baked, as the government answered the cries for better and more pies.

And then they were government ordered “free pies” for all, to hide their half baked quality.

The baker had had enough, no more pies, I quit said the baker.

… the government came and ordered him to bake pies, he said no again, so the government shot him outside his bakery.

Then the government asked, who wants to bake pies?

… or for that matter make drugs.

Constitutional Lessons For Dummies

December 18, 2010

You know, things like the Federal Government cannot force people to buy health insurance they don’t want, little things like that.

From a disapproving Politico:

Fulfilling one of their most prominent campaign promises, House Republican leaders have unveiled a new rule to require that each bill filed in the House “cite its specific constitutional authority.”

And for those who may have skipped that constitutional law class, Republicans have organized four staff briefings prior to the Jan. 5 start of the 112th Congress to provide guidance on compliance with the new rule. The first session will be Monday at 1 p.m. in the Capitol Visitor Center.

GOP leaders have prepared a memo for all members of the new Congress and senior staff informing them that no bill may be introduced unless the sponsor has submitted for the Congressional Record a statement “citing as specifically as practicable the power or powers granted to Congress” to enact the measure. The memo included five examples of forms that sponsors could include with their legislation.


Now Just Go Home

December 17, 2010

Democrats controlling the Senate have abandoned a 1,924-page catchall spending measure that’s laced with homestate pet projects known as earmarks and that would have provided another $158 billion for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Nevada Democrat Harry Reid gave up on the nearly $1.3 trillion bill after several (nine) Republicans who had been thinking of voting for the bill pulled back their support.

GOP leader Mitch McConnell threw his weight against the bill in recent days, saying it was in his words “unbelievable” that Democrats would try to muscle through in just a few days legislation that usually takes months to debate.

Reid said he would work with McConnell to produce a short-term funding bill to keep the government running into early next year.

The top Senate Republican has offered a one-page bill to prevent a government shutdown on Saturday as an alternative to a 1,924-page catchall spending measure offered by Democrats.

Go home, we don’t want your ‘enabling act’ con-con anymore, and take your Obama-Communism with you. Try and do one thing positive for America, while you still have your 13% approval.

Epilogue: TEA PARTY POWER to the people.

The Tricks Of Last Year’s Democrats

December 16, 2010

At the urging of the tea party folks, why not just do a clean unencumbered continuing resolution, just extend the current spending for a few months, and wait until next year to detail the spending. We have had enough of the tricks, it’s all so transparent, even though you think you hide it so well.

“Republicans and Democrats Pledge to Read 1,924-Page Omnibus Spending Bill Before Vote” — note the Democrats joining in, as 2012 just isn’t that far away. And the likelihood of the tea party forgetting is zero — I can see 2012 from my window, can you???

By law, it was the duty of the Democrat majority to supply a budget and get it passed before October 1, 2010. But obviously they did not want the people to know the plan and the spending before the election, did they.

Since Democrats had all year to do what they wanted, instead they opted to delay until after the 2010 election, and before the new Congress is seated, then lard the spending up with everything they could think of, sadly driving the debt up higher and higher. Why allow it to happen now. There are now over 6,000 earmarks, including 48 BILLION for inner city bribes. Yes you read that right, just another reparations package.

BUT — Think what we could get for the carbon credits if we just bulldozed the inner cities, these liberal welfare plantations, and sold the carbon credits. What’s the rush?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has adopted precisely the approach to fiscal 2011 appropriations.

From his press release:

“Today I’m introducing this: a clean, one-page continuing resolution that keeps government funded through February 18th at current spending levels. Once the new Congress is sworn in, we’ll have a chance to pass a less expensive bill free of wasteful spending.” — Sen McConnell said.

There is no reason why Democrats, having failed to pass a budget or fund the government for next year, should now be allowed to lock in their spending priorities until next October.

Prove the new and improved Republicans are not just the same as last year’s Democrats. Make our day.
