Over the Weekend

November 14, 2011

I have been rather busy over the weekend with my job and all, and I was actually out of town all day yesterday, so I haven’t been able to write about much of anything. Here are just a few snippets.

I  noticed that I have been getting quite a few  more page views than normal because of my post about Professor Avery. If a blog like this is getting attention, I can only imagine what kind of grief Professor Avery must be getting from blogs and such that a lot of people read. He deserves it, though, and probably likes it. I don’t know anything about him, of course, but I suppose that he might be one of those people who enjoy getting attention by saying obnoxious and unpopular things.

I really haven’t been paying much attention to the upcoming presidential elections. I really don’t know if Herman Cain has done anything that could be remotely considered sexual harassment or not. Everyone knows, though, that if he were a Democrat these sort of allegations would never see the light of day. Being black makes it worse for him. Again everyone knows that a black Republican is a target for the main stream media in a way a black Democrat never could be. If a Black is a Republican, the liberals are free to indulge their inner racists.

And their inner homophobe too. Evidently one Taylor Garrett, a gay Republican had his car vandalized because he is a gay Republican who is a friend of Ann Coulter. I guess gays have to be Democrats too.

I noticed that Newt Gingrich is riding high in the polls right now. He is probably the smartest one of the lot but I don’t think he is much of a leader.

Here at Drudge is a story from CNN Nancy Pelosi says that contrary to a 60 minutes report, she is not corrupt. When a politician says he or she is not a crook, that usually means that he or she is a crook.

More Mail from the Democrats

October 14, 2011

I was feeling a little neglected after President Obama and the rest of the Democrats stopped sending me e-mails. It appears that the fundraiser was over and they didn’t need to ask for any more from me. I have to say I felt a bit used. At least I would, if I had ever sent them any money.

Well, I am glad to see that the Democrats don’t just love me for my money. They also need me to sign petitions.

We told you last week about Republican efforts to suppress the vote nationwide that could prevent 5 MILLION Americans from voting. According to the New York Times, the voter fraud Republicans say they’re preventing simply isn’t an issue. “The only reason Republicans are passing these laws is to give themselves a political edge by suppressing Democratic votes.”

The scary thing is, it just might work. Enough votes could be lost to states like Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada and Virginia to hand the Senate – and the White House – to the GOP.

This news really struck a nerve with grassroots activists – we’re nearly halfway to our goal of 150,000 signatures. But we’re missing your name – will you click here and sign?

After you’ve signed, check out our brand new 2012 Election Protection Project website, where you can view maps of affected states, learn facts about the new laws, share information on Twitter and, most importantly, register to vote.

We’re starting to put together our voter outreach plans based on these new GOP laws, and I sure could use your help. Thanks in advance for signing and sharing. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.

I am just outraged that the Republicans are trying to suppress the necro-American vote. Sure the living can show IDs easily enough, but does anyone care about how hard it is for the dead to get identification. They don’t normally drive so they can’t get driver’s licenses. Illegal immigrants also have considerable difficulty in acquiring valid. I will be glad to sign this petition identification. Just because a person is not a US citizen or even alive is no reason to deny them the vote.

Then I got this.


We have to act fast.

House Republicans are set to vote today on a bill that would go even farther than Republicans’ previous efforts to restrict women’s access to reproductive health care.

This GOP bill would allow emergency rooms to refuse women life-saving healthcare. Pundits are calling it the “Let Women Die” act.

We must act immediately to call out the right-wing Republicans behind this assault on women. We’ve set a goal of raising $100,000 for the DCCC Women’s Health Rapid Response Fund so we can hold these Republicans accountable.

Please make an urgent contribution of $3 or more to the DCCC Women’s Health Rapid Response Fund. Your generous support will send a powerful show of grassroots strength against the Republicans’ extreme agenda.

Instead of focusing on jobs or the economy, today’s vote will mark the seventh time this year House Republicans have chosen to undermine women’s access to health care.

First, it was Republicans redefining rape to deny health care coverage. Now, they want to allow hospitals to turn away women in life-or-death situations. Plus, for the first time ever, this bill would restrict how women with private insurance can spend their own private dollars in purchasing health care. It has to stop.

Help us send a message to Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, and the rest of the House Republicans that their repeated insistence on restricting women’s access to health care has consequences.

Thank you standing with us.

The fiends!!. They want to deny women needed healthcare, just because the Republicans hate women. I wonder though. This wouldn’t have anything to do with making sure the tax payers are not paying for abortions, would it? No matter. Nancy Pelosi has said the Republicans want women to die on the emergency room floors and I am sure she wouldn’t lie or exaggerate. I’ll send that $3 right away.

A Plea from Nancy Pelosi

September 27, 2011

I am still getting e-mail from prominent Democrats begging me to contribute.Evidently, in three days, they have to file with the FEC and they hope to get good numbers. This time I got an e-mail from none other than Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker of the House.

Enough is enough.

For the third time in 10 months, House Republicans pushed our government to the brink of a shutdown to put their radical agenda ahead of the American people’s interests.

While Democrats worked to secure disaster relief funding, House Republicans insisted on holding these critical funds hostage in a cynical ploy to advance their agenda.

It’s never been clearer why we need a Democratic House Majority. We cannot afford another two years with a Republican Majority that recklessly brings us to the brink of a government shutdown unless their radical ideological demands are met.

Friday’s FEC filing deadline is only 72 hours away and we are still $171,984 away from our $1 Million grassroots goal. It is critical that we have a powerful showing of grassroots strength.

I am not sure that the representative from the Congressional district that includes most of San Francisco is in much of a position to say what is extreme or radical. They do seem to be increasingly desperate though. I wonder how their overall fundraising is going.

 

Nancy Pelosi Shows Some Class

May 4, 2011

I don’t much care for former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. I don’t like her radical left-wing politics and I don’t think she was a particularly good Speaker. Never the less, we must give credit where it is deserved. According to this article in The Hill, Nancy Pelosi called former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to thank them for their role in taking down Osama bin Laden. Good for you Ms. Pelosi! Maybe if more politicians acted this way, American politics would be less of a cesspool.
