...from 'round the sphere
Obama admits that the old interrogation techniques may have worked . In his press conference last night he admitted that we may have gotten valuable info from the terrorists using the techniques he has ruled out, but that we still shouldn't use them anyway. That way, we'll become a "beacon to the world". How about a "laughing stock" to terrorists? Especially after we're successfully hit again because we could no longer get the information we need? Insane.
Arlen Specter gets voodood by the Dems. To help facilitate his his much touted party switch the other day, PA US Senator Arlen Specter made a deal with Dem Leader Harry Reid that he would get to use his years of seniority in the Senate to shoot to the top of committee assignments. But now, after his switch was announced, other Dems are saying they'll vote against allowing him to do so . Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
Liberals still working for "Fairness Doctrine". They've been quiet about it lately, but rest assured, liberals are still working behind the scenes to put the pieces in place for a re-implementation of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine". The bottom line for them, of course, being to restrict/reduce the influence of conservative talk radio. This time, they'll do it in the name of "diversity".  Contact your members of Congress and let them know how you feel  about it.
Americans divided over government "health insurance". A recent poll showed 41% in favor and 44% opposed to a "government run health insurance plan" ...which is not good news considering what the liberals have on tap in Congress re: single-payer, government run, socialized medicine. The bottom line to why you see results like this, and why we'll have to work like heck to stop Obama's health-care "reforms" is that too many people think they would be getting something "for free". If it happens, they'll get a quick education on the meaning of "free".
Congratulations, you're a GM shareholder. In case you didn't realize it the other day, you just bought some stock in General Motors . Yes, we all know about the bailouts, which were done as loans to GM for what is known as "preferred stock" (non-voting), but now, since GM can't pay it's loans, the government's "preferred stock" was converted to "common stock"...which is voting stock...as in, the government now owns 50% of General Motors. The other winners in this deal? Obama's buddies in the labor unions, which will get 40%. So what about the bondholders? (You know, the capitalist who held almost 30 billion in bonds for money they loaned the company) They got 10%...which amounts to about .10 cents on the dollar. Obama's first "nationalization" of a private enterprise proceeding as planned...
