Yannow, after watching George W and John McRINO get trounced three times in '07 when they were pushing their McCain-Kennedy scAmnesty vote, this will seem par for the GOP course to most RM readers.
Nearly a hundred top Republican donors and Bush administration officials sent a letter to the House GOP on Tuesday urging lawmakers to pass a bill that legalizes illegal immigrants, arguing that the current system is already allowing them to stay and so it makes sense to register them and bring them into the system.
I wonder if they mean something like this over a dozen potential Republican voters. Nice, eh?
Is it really any wonder why Michigan's La Raza Award recipient and Muhammadan pandering fool lost his Senate seat to Debbie Stabenow? No. Democrat trumps Democrat-lite every time. Matter of fact, Democrat-lite always paves the way for electing a Democrat. Fact. See Ford, Read My Lips Bush, Dubya (yes, he built
Quite frankly, anyone contributing money to the state or, national Party or, any of its committees is - certifiably nuts.

In Connecticut, Michigan, wherever.
This is not intended as a coldhearted statement, but rather an observation that is crying out for recognition.
Dead kids, property destruction, general disregard for our fellow man. All of it resulting from exactly the opposite message of what founded our great nation. Our current bizarro world would not be complete without death being the 'preferred' alternative to a woman not being able to play around unfettered by the inconvenience of pregnancy, without the labor unions calling for the 'rights' of workers to be protected by placing shackles on their legs, or the game played by progressive thinkers which sets rules that define taking as morally preferable to voluntary concession.
There could hardly be a dry eye out there from parents of 5 to 10 year old children after yesterday's tragedy in CT. In fact, anyone with a soul left in these dark times must feel for those parents and family members who had only days before had the highest dreams for their happy little treasures. Even the souls scarred with the axiomatic wrist cutting belief that abortions are OK, or those with sociological defects that believe that honor killing or personal slavery is ever appropriate, must hide their eyes lest the world witness their hypocrisy.
The world is doing its pole shift, not in the geological sense, but in logic and reasoning and common sense. Our civilization is running its moral clock backward.
What stretch of the imagination is it to see a people who are immersed in a culture of death such as that experienced in Detroit, which sports a near 38% abortion rate, and leaves a lesson for those who survive, that life is not sacred? How can we be surprised at the destruction of hot dog carts, and tents, and personal property by union members who have been told that "its OK to break things in your fight to retain dominion over your brother"? What level of coercive (violence based) taxation is enough for ANY political party, when each scheme rewarding some, must be borne on the backs of others, involuntarily?
Are we as a nation ready to appropriately answer these questions?

".. in our government."
A Big change is coming to government!
By golly, it appears the constitution matters again to the miscreant denizens of the white house. Those guys have all of a sudden realized that "we the people" are looking at the constitution and have a little better understanding of the document that protects us from them. I would fully expect that all those petitions demanding an end to the unconstitutional health care mandate, will now be heard. Certainly, when energy prices are starting peak, the white house will respond positively to petitions that suggest we allow more drilling and use of our natural resources. In fact they will probably call the petitioners up directly and congratulate them on their successful participation in the constitutional process.
"The official way to have your voice heard in our government"
Think about that statement for a second. If this will be the official way, then apparently the other methods are no longer necessary or adequate. The smiling faces to the right will certainly vote for the petitions they like as indicated with another wonderful gem:
"If your petition is among the most popular, a group of white house policy officials, like this good looking bunch, will review it, make sure it gets to the right people in the Obama administration, and craft an official response."
This country is being run by children. In fact, it appears they are soliciting petitions from children as well:
Anyone 13 or older can create or sign a petition on WhiteHouse.gov asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country.
Aside from the dismissal of all those who spoke against the kind of change this chump in charge was pushing, the utter disregard for the protections afforded us by the founding documents has been clear. This is not at all addressing our grievances but merely an attempt to once again use a catch phrase that might be more acceptable to those of us who truly believe there is meaning in consent of the governed. The catch phrase "we the people" is still sadly abused by those who have no interest in its real meaning, its intent, or its warning to those who stray from the constitutional foundation.
And the guys on the left wall have done nothing to address that.

Circa 1999/2000 West Michigan DADS in conjunction with DADS of Michigan would circulate Father Facts to Legislators, Bench holders, Journalists: it really is unbelievable that we have failed to embrace the promotion of Fatherhood and rather promote oppression of Fathers. Michigan has oppressed our Michigander children by oppressing Dads for over four decades. Dr. Ken Canfield is well known by Social Scientists and the Clergy, Dr. Canfield created the National Center for Fathering (the source of the ARTICLE below).

We're Americans. We're generous and forgiving and tolerant. I get all that. But why do we feel it necessary to fund every lunatic organization on Earth?
Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but it galls me when I read that the U.S. is giving hundreds of millions of dollars to UNESCO, which advocates teaching 5- to 8-year olds about masturbation!
UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. In 1984, President Reagan cut off U.S. funding for UNESCO. The State Department said, "UNESCO has extraneously politicized virtually every subject it deals with. It has exhibited hostility toward a free society, especially a free market and a free press, and it has demonstrated unrestrained budgetary expansion."
The ban on funding remained in place until 2004, when it was restored by W. (See, not a partisan post!). Even Clinton refused to fund these nuts.
Since 2002, however, the U.S. has thrown $536 million down the UNESCO hole, and The One wants to send them another $78 million.
So what's wrong with education, science, and culture? Depends on your definition and its application. In UNESCO's case, everything is wrong. In June of this year, UNESCO published a report recommending that sex education begin at five (that's 5) years old. From CNS News:
The report, called International Guidelines on Sexual Education, was released in June in conjunction with the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), an organization which works for universal access to "reproductive health care."
Sharp-eyed readers will note not only the integral role of Planned Parenthood, but also the reference to a child as "it."
To take just one aspect of the guidelines, what does it mean to say that all people, "regardless of their health status . . . can raise a child and give [him or her] the love [he or she] deserves"? (Hey, wait -- is the use of him, her, he, and she "gender stereotyping?") To what "health status" is UNESCO referring?
And why are we supporting an organization that recommends 5-year olds be taught about masturbation, and "sexual status?" It might be nice if we occasionally tried reading, writing, and arithmetic before we jumped into sex toys and cross-dressing.
We're Americans. We want to be loved. Do we have to be so stupid about it?
