More Change We Can Believe In!

Do you know this woman hobnobbing with Monkey Boy Chavez and Daniel Ortega?  You probably don’t but the Senate should.

See, that is anti-military activist Linda Panetta, daughter of CIA Director-designate, Leon Panetta.  While Papa Leon is not responsible for the beliefs and actions of his wayward daughter, her closeness to regimes and others who do not wish us well is a valid concern.  How close do his views coincide with his daughter’s?  The Senate needs to probe this aggressively.

Oh, the shame!

embarrasment

The time is at hand.  Hope and Change are readying their sweeps across America.  Meanwhile, in the hallowed halls of both houses of Congress, public servants are busy at work, eager to leave their mark on history whilst looking out for the best interests of you and I… their constituents.

No one, in this merry band of do-gooders, has his priorities quite as straight than the Maverick himself.

While many of our distinguished gentlemen and women are struggling with how the federal government can best guide America through these, dare I say, turbulent times, Johnny Mac has put “Country First” by proposing the “Professional Boxing Amendments Act of 2009.” 

The Professional Boxing Amendments Act would strengthen existing Federal boxing law by improving the basic health and safety standards for professional boxers, establishing a centralized medical registry to be used by local commissions to protect boxers, reducing the arbitrary practices of sanctioning organizations, and enhancing the uniformity and basic standards for professional boxing contracts. Most importantly, this legislation would establish a Federal regulatory entity to oversee professional boxing and set basic uniform standards for certain aspects of the sport.

Sign me up!  I can think of no greater pressing need than to allay the worries of Hollywood celebrities, convalescing with the highest paid Vegas whores ringside at the MGM, that there aren’t any shenanigans going on during their high end swat-fest.  But wait a second…  how will we pay for this “Federal regulatory entity”?  Senator “No Earmarks” has it all figured out…

As this measure continues through the legislative process, I fully expect Congress will ensure that funding offsets are provided to it and every other spending measure as we work to restore fiscal discipline to Washington in a bipartisan manner. I urge my colleagues to support this legislation.

Ugh.  Yes.  This is the man whom I gave my vote to.  Excuse me while I go throw up.

It has been awhile so I thought the best way to get the blog-o-matic running again would be to dump out a few quick (read – half baked) thoughts:

  • HRIC (Head RINO in Charge) GWB’s usurping of the failed UAW bailout, Al Franken’s election fixing in MN, Blago’s “appointment” of his buddy Burris (a man who fought to execute a beyond-teh-shadow-of-a-doubt innocent (albeit dirtbaggish) man to appear tough on crime whilst running for governor) and the upcoming Coronation of Sweet Princess Caroline (teh awesomest vid evah here) have all turned the US Senate into the equivalent of a Bugs Bunny Cartoon.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Bugs… just not sure that “Ballot Box Bunny” is the appropriate template for electing people to what has been up till now a vital branch of our Federal Government.
  • Government bailouts extending to Newspapers goes way beyond the absurd into the realm of obscene, intolerable and unconstitutional. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN!
  • Roseanne Barr is a fricking moron. (VDA forthcoming)
  • Favorite new blog here (WARNING – NSFW – Lot’s of profanity.)

Happy New Year.

Reality Unwound…

Through my burgeoning participation in “Social Media Activism” such as The DLO and other Blogs, Rebuild the Party and Twitter, I have had the opportunity to converse with some very interesting and intelligent, like-minded individuals; Men and Women that woke up on November 5th with an extreme sense of dread and remorse.  Dread for obvious reasons and remorse for not having done more to help prevent the inevitable pain we will encounter over the next, hopefully few, years.

One such individual is a Pastor from right here in San Antonio who blogs (and tweets) under the moniker “Reality Unwound”.

Where I tend to be more sardonic and angry, “RU” is often much more contemplative and reasoned.  On the Auto-Bailout failure (or should I say victory?) of last night, “RU” has been able to put to words that which I could not: a thankfullness for the bailout failing to pass the Senate, but with a sobering realization that there are going to be tough consequences ahead from the events of last night.  Indeed consequences that must be endured to ultimately fix what ailes us, but tough nonetheless.  Please read what he has to say, here.

Reality Unwound, welcome to the Blogroll.

RINO ALERT!

32 “Distinguished” Republican Congressmen voted in favor for the automotive bailout bill.  If your “representative” made the list, why don’t you give them a little shout out and tell them how you feel about their little Christmas Present to the UAW?

Time to get on the phone folks.  Call your Senators NOW and insist they support the planned Republican filibuster!

<UPDATE>

Just say no to compromise.  The last time we “compromised” got a $700B crap sandwich.  No thank you.

Hurrah!
