Hump Day Report: “Merry Christmas” a No-No
ALOHA, ALL!! You’d think your Representative could send you a Merry Christmas greeting. Or even a generic “Happy Holidays.” Ah – think again! Anything that goes out as official mail is reviewed by the franking commission (bloated government, much?) to determine if tax dollars will pay for the postage. All types of holiday greetings are verboten: Congressmen can’t say ‘Merry Christmas’ in mail With all the waste in government, we actually have franking committees who tell Congresspeople they can’t mail holiday greetings????? What’s next, trash police who make sure you recycle? (Oh wait – that’s already here.) BTW, the image above comes from a new Facebook site called Obama Must Go – OMG for America. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to check it out!
OOPS, they did it again. Omnibus Spending Deal Comes Up Short ”With Christmas just a week away and the new year nearly upon us, Congress came within a whisper of yet another potential government shutdown and once again demonstrated its inability to make substantive spending cuts and deliver the American people the reforms necessary to secure America’s fiscal future. Rather than produce a timely budget by way of standard operating procedure, congressional leaders again butted up against the deadline and reached a deal on a trillion-dollar “mega-omnibus” nine-bill appropriations package that sadly is yet another disappointing failure to rein in government spending.”

And he’s a Constitutional expert – just ask him! Obama Pledges to Rule, with or without Congress ”Well, we can’t say he didn’t warn us. After the November 2010 elections when the President’s party lost control of the U.S. House, Barack Obama told America that where he can’t legislate, he will regulate. In the last year, he lived up to that pledge, and now he’s promising to do even more of it in 2012.”
Nancy Nitwit proves yet again that she’s better than everyone else. ‘NAT GAS’ Energy Subsidies Would Enrich Pelosi ”House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has pushed for a piece of legislation that would directly enrich her financially. Pelosi owns a major stake in a company that would likely see its share prices rise significantly if the legislation is passed.”
And they wonder why subscriptions are down. Time’s ‘Person of the Year’: Dishonest and Delusional | FrontPage Magazine ”The writer of the Time story on the Person of the Year, Kurt Anderson, bends over backward to portray the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the new Islamist government in Tunisia as “moderate.” He certainly has a curious definition of who or what is “moderate” when it comes to Islamism.”
Did you see the debate last night? Aside from Rick Perry claiming to be the Tim Tebow of the GOP. Ron Paul provided more of his nonsensical talk. Are you kidding me? Listen to this guy and if he makes sense to you then all I can say is WOW. He keeps thinking back to the 1960s….does he notice that it’s 2011? Earth to Paul: the MAD concept and negotiating with foes worked in the 60′s because our enemies didn’t want to die. In the 21st century, Jihadists don’t care if they die for their cause and take us out with them! Paul honestly thinks we can talk to jihadists who want to wipe Israel and us off the face of the earth? He thinks they hate us because we bomb them. They hate us because of who we are. They attacked us first (and I don’t just mean 9/11/01 – click HERE) Watch this:
Ah, those tricky Alinsky-trained obamabots: Obama’s Creepy New Plot to Get Republican E-mail Addresses ”The Obama presidential campaign is launching an effort to collect Republican email addresses by inviting its supporters to submit information about their Republican associates to the Obama 2012 website…”
Final Thought: ”I called the commission to ask for clarification and was told no ‘Merry Christmas.’ Also told cannot say ‘Happy New Year’ but can say ‘have a happy new year’ – referencing the time period of a new year, but not the holiday.” Anonymous Hill staffer
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
