Thanks, Doc: But I Will Be Getting A Second Opinion

A commentary piece as read by a Rep. Benishek constituent, via the good folks at MCC.   

U.S. Rep. Dan Benishek speaks out against vague language in legislationBy Rep. Dan Benishek

Imagine government without responsibility toward its citizens — let me give you a hint, it looks a lot like Syria’s Bashar al-Assad regime.

America is blessed with a Constitution that protects Americans so they are not afraid that each new leader will turn the country into a fascist nation. No matter how much anyone disagrees with a president’s policies, we can take solace in the protections of the Constitution.

The Constitution’s authority is supreme and every piece of legislation must fit within the Constitution’s limits.

Roger that, Doc.  So far, we’re on the same page.  Let’s continue…

A Souvenir From A Primary

A friend attended the Romney campaign event at the Park Place Dome in Traverse City Michigan, and bought himself a hat.

Each Presidential Election cycle, he has bought a trinket, or Souvenir or shirt etc, and in the past he has bought a few hats.

For a moment, ignore the subtle tagline that is Oh-So-Apropriate, and note his objection was that for the first time, a hat he bought from a Republican presidential effort came from China.

Saying as little as necessary, this tag says so very much.

Merry Christmas

The perfect man who died for our imperfections has his birth celebrated today.

Amidst the gifts that we pass among ourselves, nothing can compare to the ultimate endowment given to us with the birth of Jesus Christ. Nothing can compare to the gift God bestowed upon those of us who are less than perfect.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

No one on this day, can say he or she is without charity, or at the very least a significant dowry unless they would turn it down.

A Merry Christmas to our readers.

May this be a joyous and fruitful time for you and your families.

Perhaps An Indicator Of Support?

Perusing the standard reading list, I came across the video being promoted by BarackObama.com as a trainer for convincing your reticent (and wiser) relatives to support the liar in chief.

After choking down my lunch after watching half of it, I did my patriotic duty and gave it the rating it deserved.

Apparently the majority of viewers agreed with my assessment.

Acting is not in the cards for these young heads full of mush and stewed tomatoes.  Convincing the population that Barack Obama is worthy of a second term will require a brainwashing on the order of Jim Jones and a potent flavored sugar drink.

Hey Koolaid!

Eggs At 75 Yards

Have conservatives and conservative Republicans ever felt that no matter how correct we are, the wind is always in our faces?

No Surprise.

Jack Hoogendyk has an interesting look at something that shows those of us on the conservative side of the fence face opposition from even those who are presumably our friends.  An analysis of contributions apparently reveals we (or at least “Republicans’) face roughly complete financial opposition from union interests, and a fence sitting 50% from business interests.

“I did a little research using OpenSecrets.org, the web site that tracks campaign contributions. Here is what I found. No matter how far down the list you look, union PAC’s all give donations to Democrats at about a 24 to 1 rate. 96% of all union PAC dollars go to the Democrats. But what about “business” PAC’s? This is where it gets interesting.

Of the top 8 business PAC’s, 52% of the dollars go to Republicans, 48% goes to Democrats. The union bosses are putting all their eggs in the Democrats’ basket. The business groups like to play both sides of the fence.

So did Humpty Dumpty.  We know how THAT ended.

At this point, best advice to business would be that its time to pick a side, as chances of avoiding the crossfire are less with that fence between you and the enemy.
