Some for me but none for thee – ‘Palazzo Appealed for Federal Disaster Relief After Hurricane Katrina’


‘Palazzo was one of 67 members – all Republicans – to vote against the $9.7 billion Sandy relief package that overwhelmingly passed the House on Friday’.

‘Last week, two-term Representative Steven Palazzo (R-MS) sparked controversy nationwide when he voted against relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy’.

‘In addition to representing the region today, Palazzo was deeply involved in pressing for federal dollars in the fall of 2005’.

“We will rebuild and we’ll provide homes for those displaced; but we cannot do that until it is funded,” Palazzo said in a pamphlet published by the Biloxi Housing Authority and still available online. “We’re ready to do the work- but we simply do not have the financial resources on our own to handle a catastrophe like Katrina.”

“Tell our national leaders- don’t send more inspectors- we know what’s damaged and how to fix it,” Palazzo continued. “Send us money so we can put families back together and do our part to rebuild our community.”

‘New Republican Senator Says Gun Safety Is ‘Unconstitutional’ And….’Drunk man celebrating his birthday busted after fatally shooting 34-year-old man inside Brooklyn diner’

gun controltoday

Keep telling yourselves more guns are the answer…….

‘Jason Lewis was at the counter of the Country House Diner in Clinton Hill about 5 a.m. when a drunken Tyrone Gainer started grabbing Lewis’ girlfriend, witnesses said. She said something to her tormentor and then Lewis, 34, intervened’.

‘A boozed-up Gainer, 27, smacked Lewis in the face’.

“Why’d you smack me?” Lewis demanded. “We don’t have to shed blood for this.”

‘Gainer apparently disagreed, whipping out a .22-caliber handgun and ending the argument with senseless violence’.

‘He just put the gun to his heart and pulled the trigger,” said Hakim Abdel, owner of the Fulton St. eatery. “Two seconds — it just took two seconds.”

‘Police collared Gainer and charged him with murder, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm. His prior arrests include one for menacing a police officer, and a tampering with evidence charge’.

‘Newly-elected Sen. Ted Cruiz (R-TX) accused politicians of exploiting the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut to advance gun safety legislation’.

‘HOST: “You are a fierce defender of Second Amendment rights…. is there any new gun control that you would accept”?

‘CRUZ: “The reason we are discussing this is because of the the tragedy in Newtown. But within minutes, we saw politicians run out and try to exploit and push their political agenda of gun control. I do not suppor their gun control agenda for two reasons. Number one, it is it unconstitutional”.

The Debt Ceiling explained on the West Wing

Loved that show. The best scene ever was when Martin Sheen (Bartlett) quietly explained to a religious radio talk show conservative why everybody stands when the President enters the room.

‘Top Conservative Radio Figure Calls For “Nationalist” Third Party’


Here’s my reaction…..

It’s what teabaggers just don’t understand.

Just being mad isn’t policy.

Heree’s a good read :

‘The conservative radio host Michael Savage Sunday called for a third, “nationalist” American political party to challenge the Republican Party on the right of the political spectrum’.

“We need a nationalist party in the United States of America,” said Savage on Aaron Klein’s WABC radio show.

“You have the rudiments of a new party in this country called a Tea Party. They need to restructure their party. They need a charismatic leader, which they don’t have,” he said. “When you say Tea Party no one knows who the leader is because there is no leader. No man has stepped forward who can lead that party.”

‘Savage is the third-most widely heard radio talker in the country, and a leading voice among conservatives seeking an alternative to the Beltway Republican Party’.

“The Tea Party is the rudiment of the new nationalist party,” he said. “Somebody has to bring them all together, unite them like King David did the ancient tribes of Israel. And there is no King David out there. Who’s the King David? Tell me who is going to do it?”

“I could do it if I was 20 years younger. I would do it right now. But I’m not 20 years younger and I don’t have 20 years left in me. This is going to require enormous resource and enormous energy,” he said’.

“There are people so frustrated by the democracy that is gone in this country, the structure that has replaced, lets put it to you this way, replaced our democracy, is what I meant to say, that they would clamor for the new nationalist party,” Savage said, going on to slam the Republican Party’.

“There is no Republican party. It’s an appendage of the Democrat machine as we’ve all just seen. It’s two card Monte, as we all know. It’s a game being played against the American people. You’ve got the drunk Boehner on the one side, and the quasi-pseudo-crypto Marxist on the other, who is really just enjoying the ride in Hawaii right now, representing his factions,” he said’.

Why Entitlements Should be Spared.

Medicare and Social Security ARE the Social Contract.

A Little Tour in Yellow

Let’s forget about the fact that programs like Medicare and Social Security are smart investments, good for people, good for the economy, good for social stability.   Why should these investments — called entitlements — be cut to compensate for a deficit caused by decades of deliberate under funding of government?

TennieldumdeeIt is being said more and more often — and for good reason — we are in a class war.  Plain and simple.  The attack, however, does not come from the needy, resentful left, as conservatives want Americans to believe, it comes from a greedy, myopic right.

Conservatives have gone after government with particular focus and vengeance since the early 1980s.  And they are succeeding.  Today’s conservatives still try to divide us on social issues, but they succeed on economic ones.

We couldn’t even maintain a budget surplus in the post-Clinton years.  We cut and squandered our national treasury…
