How much is the life of a baby worth…

… or countless thousands. How about $726,409.00?  $726,409.00 was all it took for Bart Stupak to walk away from his principles, and vote for legislation that not only contains abortion language in the bill, it appropriates $7 billion for abortion services for the next 5 years. And, the language of the Bill was purposely written to skirt around the Hyde amendment. Plus sec 1303 has language that uses federal funds to subsidize health plans that cover abortion. Oh, but wait a sec… the POTUS promised an Executive Order to prohibit federal funding of abortion.

There is no Constitutional provision or statute that explicitly permits Executive Orders, and Congress at any time may overturn an executive order by passing legislation in conflict with it or by refusing to approve funding to enforce the Executive Order.

Well done Mr Stupak, you held out for a worthless compromise. And I sure that $726,409.00 grant for rural airport renovations is just coincidental too…

On standing on principle,  Stupak told the Catholic News Agency on March 26th “The health care reform bill would have passed the House without the votes of Rep. Bart Stupak’s pro-life Democrats because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “always carries a number of votes in her pocket.”

Hmm, the votes are there already… and… I cold vote my conscience… … … what’s behind door number 3 Bob?

About that Porculous Bill…

porkWhile President Obama was still running for President he made this promise:

“When there is a bill that ends up on my desk as the president, you the public will have five days to look online and find out what’s in it before I sign it,” Barak Obama (D-IL)

Apparently promises are made to be broken. Not even a month into his Presidency, he has managed to shatter plenty of them. He also mentions “no pork” and “no secrecy” in this very same speech. For those of you watching at home, this compromise was done in secret behind closed doors, and the bill was not even available to the members before they voted on it. The ink had not even dried on the paper yet before it got the Presidential pen. Combined with the fact that most of his cabinet is filled with former “lobbyist”,  you will learn that “words” from the campaign trail don’t mean very much anymore. This “new” administration full of “hope” and “change”, is neither new, hopeful or a change, rather it is just retread of the Clinton administration.

Of course, our old friends are up to it again, well really still:

“And let me say this to all of the chattering class that so much focuses on those little, tiny – yes – porky amendments: the American people really don’t care.” – Sen. Up-Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)

My, my, Up-Chucky gets a little uppity when he feels that he has a little power. The problem is, I don’t think Up-Chuck would recognize a ‘real’ American if they were kicking him in the ass. And if he did, I highly doubt he would stoop down to talk to them.

Of course we can’t forget our good friend Harry ‘smell the tourist’ Reid:

“I’m pleased to announce that we’ve been able to bridge those differences,” Harry ‘Dingy’ Reid, (D-Nev)

Nice try Dingy, since you finally were able to fund your pet project to build the train to nowhere that “bridges” the gap between L.A. and Las Vegas. Nice work, smug and arrogant as usual. Of course who could ever forget this:

“My staff has always said, ‘Don’t say this,’ but I’m going to say it again because it’s so descriptive because it’s true, … In the summertime, because the high humidity and how hot it gets here, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol.” Harry ‘Dingy’ Reid, (D-Nev)harry-reid

Again, for those of you playing at home, this is how Harry actually feels about the ‘little’ people. If this man we to actually break a sweat from doing some real work, he’d be checking himself in the Bethesda for fear he had contracted some sort of medical condition.

And finally. let us never forget the “terrible trio” of Arlin Spectre (r-PA), Olympia Snowe (r-ME), and Susan Collins (r-ME). If we had just one person in leadership at the RNC with the balls to call for these three ass clowns to be expelled from the caucus, I’d consider giving them assholes my money again! Spectre, Snowe, and Collins have for too long been a thorn in the side of the Republican Party. And this latest breaking of ranks to pass the Economic Stimulus Bill (pronouced Steal-from-us Bill) is the final straw. The time for them to go is NOW!

I’m a louse, and a whiner, and dog gone it! I’m your Senator… [Update]

Al "Baby" FrankenThis picture says it all..

It just goes to show you, a little money, a lot of whining and 30 recounts later, you too can be a Senator…

Another Stalwart choice Minesotans, Good Job!

Update

Well. maybe not just yet.  One thousand previously uncounted ballots, are going to be counted after all.

So my question is, what weren’t all these votes caonted in the first place? So don’t put the “binky” away just yet, Al my be needing it!

Selling to the highest bidder… [Updated]

Well it looks like Governor Helmet Hair from that bastion of well behaved political operatives in Illinois may have been trying to sell Barry Obama’s senate seat.

Blagojevich was charged Tuesday with trying to sell the Senate seat, soliciting money from people with state business and pressing the Chicago Tribune to fire editorial writers who had criticized him. Sheldon Sorosky, Blagojevich’s lawyer, said Tuesday that the governor did nothing wrong.

Funny, that the legacy media has so far neglected to mention his party affiliation. Gov. Blagojevich is a Democrat… go figure…

Update

Meanwhile, Triple J claims he “is not a target of this investigation” and Double J … he lawyer’s up …
