A Long List of Important News Items and Quotes..

President Obama on Monday made it much more difficult for American auto makers to hold onto their companies. He plans to give all states a waiver from their requirement of following national emission standards. Therefore, California will become the first of possibly 18 states who will set their very own emission standards - which will require Detroit auto makers to produce cars that meet those requirements, without federal mandates.

President Obama to Republican Representative Eric Cantor, discussing his conservative ideas on the Stimulus Package: "I won! I will trump you on that!" So much for the new era of bipartisanship. He is discounting the views of some 58 million voters.. who are also the Americans for whom he has pledged to work, not rule.

Obama's Inaugural words: "All are equal, all are free" Yes, indeed we are all free. However we are NOT all equal and it is not the work of government to make it so! It is the work of government to give each American the OPPORTUNITY to be equal. Those who avail themselves of their government provided education and remain part of a two parent family, who will work two jobs when needed, avoid drugs and illegal activites, for instance, will become more successful than those who don't.

Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) noticed something disturbing in the 'stimulus' package--A little section that read 'and $600 million to prepare America for Universal Health Care.' "Wow, $600 million just to prepare for it? Sounds like it's going to be cheap. No seriously, socialism is going to be so much fun when it's fully in place in America", says Glenn Beck.

Some of President Obama's inherited cast of characters include Charlie Wrangle, (Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee which writes our US tax code) yet another Democrat tax cheat who has broken laws in DC and in NYC by having more than one rent-controlled unit in NYC without living in them both, and for claiming a Homestead Exemption on his DC digs when it is not his primary residence. On top of that he has failed to pay income taxes on an offshore vacation home which has garnered him about $75,000 in rent. It also includes Chris Dodd, Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, who unethically received special treatment by Countrywide Financial on his mortgage, of all things! Does it ever stop? And is there no shame?

President Obama is the first President in 54 years and 14 presidents to not attend the Heroes Inaugural Ball, honoring this year 48 medal winners from our military....

Barack Obama has warned the elected Republicans that "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." Thus, he becomes the first President since Nixon to have an "enemies list". I guess even before he tries to outlaw free speech with the so-called "Fairness Doctrine", he is picking out a private citizen to admonish. Do you recall when in the autumn of 2007 Senator Harry Reid read, from the well of the Senate, a condemnation of Rush Limbaugh that was full of lies and totally misrepresented the truth, calling him unpatriotic and against our military? This letter was signed by 40 Senators! This couldn't have been further from the truth. Rush sold this letter on EBay for over $2,ooo,ooo to a Foundation which wants to remind us forever of a govenment who is actively trying to abridge our right to free speech, and he matched the amount, to be given to the Children of Fallen Marines and Law Enforcement Officers. This was truly appalling behavior from our government. It was akin to the governments of China and Russia, trying to bring down a private citizen for his "free" speech. It is right out of Saul Alinsky's playbook for rebellion, on which Barack Obama was carefully schooled during his days at Chicago's ACORN: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it" We must keep our eyes on Obama's plan to pass the "Fairness Doctrine" for it is the opposite of fair, and is intended to stifle free speech from conservatives only.

During hearings in May of 2008, Maxine Waters of the House of Representatives said to a Shell Oil exec. that if the price for gasoline goes up (in spite of being allowed to drill for oil in as yet approved US sites): "And guess what this liberal will be all about - socializing, uh, would be about, uh, basically taking over and the government running all of your companies." I presume that she is another liberal who believes the goverment can run industries better than can American companies.
Welcome to socialism as part of our liberal government.......

Barack Obama has reversed the Bush administration's refusal to have the United States pay for abortions across the world. Catholic archbishop Fisichela called Barack Obama arrogant, adding, "what is important is to know how to listen without locking oneself into ideological visions of someone who, having the power, thinks he can decide on life and death". Now along comes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who says that millions of dollars of the stimulus package should go towards abortion funds, for "birth control will help the economy". "Less energy will be used" when their are fewer people, and "fewer people will be getting benefits". She said, "We have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in the economy". This an attitude which should remind us of the government of China, who dictates that Chinese families may only have ONE child each due to the burden that those citizens create. This is a new low in family planning - to aid the government! When will we be asked to stop procreating in order to help our government? Think how this will also decrease global warming, for fewer people will be exhaling carbon dioxide..... It seems possible, however, that our President is poised to deny this thinking and spending. We'll see.

Obama's new Climate Change Envoy is Todd Stern, a Clinton Senior Whitehouse negotiator in the Kyoto Climate Change talks. He is also a Senior Fellow at the Center For American Progress (liberal) think tank. All this while the issue of climate change has not conclusively been proven to be manmade, and it ranks at the bottom of most citizen's lists of important problems......

Rush Limbaugh's Bipartisan Stimulus Plan: Since 53% of Americans voted for Obama and 46% voted for McCain, perhaps the answer would be to put 53% of the Stimulus Plan toward the Democrat plans, and 43% would be put to conservative plans of lower taxes. We will see which plan works best. In the Kennedy, Reagan and Bush 43 administrations, tax cuts, even for the wealthy (who actually create jobs and spend money), produced greatly higher revenues to the federal government!
