Democrats Will Slander For Votes

Published by at 1:35 pm under 2006 Elections,All General Discussions

We know they take bribes (William Jefferson), and we know they mollest their young interns (William Jefferson Clinton).  We know they will run from votes they cannot win (Texas State Democrats), and we know they will slander Reps and bring up trumped up charges (too numerous to list).

And now we know Democrats have moved beyond spitting on Boy Scouts at their conventions (which is an age old tradition rooted in spitting on Vietnam soldiers) to slandering our brave men and women who are risking life and limb in defense of this country:

Attorney Neal A. Puckett told The Washington Times that Gen. Michael Hagee, the Marine commandant, briefed Rep. John P. Murtha, Pennsylvania Democrat, on the Nov. 19 killings of 24 Iraqis in the town north of Baghdad. Mr. Murtha later told reporters that the Marines were guilty of killing the civilians in “cold blood.” Mr. Murtha said he based his statement on Marine commanders, whom he did not identify.

If Murtha cared about our military, he would not have tajen rumours like this on face value and ran (and I mean ran) to the cameras to slander them as he did.  As I told Clarice when she emailed an alert on this article, it seems there is no low Dems won’t go to win a leadership position.  And yes, Murtha is in line for a House Chairmanship if the Democrats win control this fall.

Murtha, it seems, will step on anyone to get a raise.

    Yes, the Fair Tax seems to be ideal, but probably just wishful thinking.
    I watched Murtha on Meet the Press today. Is that for real? Is he really as stupid as he presented himself to be? He seems to be Stuck on Stupid.

    All I can say if he is a friend of America, we damn sure don’t need any enemies.

    The Fair Tax , like any major proposal, has many impacts. If you eliminate the IRS, you also eliminate all jobs that currently exist to meet the reporting requirements. Lots of bean counters are gonna be out on the streets. Also it doesn’t address the power of K street , it only addresses the revenue source. The will still slice and dice how the revenue is spent. Also cities will have to cough up more to finance municipal projects since there will no longer be the built in “tax free” discount and they will have to gain bond issues at market rates.

    Even with all those negatives, I support the fair tax because of the overall positives.

    Right now corporations spend about 6% of gross revenues just to comply with tax laws (the admin part) plus thier tax liability, bad business decisions are made just for tax positioning reasoning. Add to that the fact that they now have the additional burden of about 5% of gross revenues to comply with Sarbaines-Oxley and it really starts to smell.

    All this has lead to two major trends that are just in the begining stages. Merger and Aquistion activity is up with major deep pocket groups taking companies private, since they get the immediate 5% to the bottom line jump.

    Also it is the basis for the NYSE and NASDAQ interest in overseas exchanges. Many companies are considering the merits of offshoring themselves to avoid all this.

    This is still one of my favorites!!


    While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies.

    His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. “Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before yousettle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts,you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.” “No problem,just let me in,” says the man.

    “Well, I’d like to but I have orders from higher up. Whatwe’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose wereto spend eternity.” “Really, I’ve made up my mind. Iwant to be in heaven,” says the senator.

    “I’m sorry but we have our rules.” And with that, St.Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doorsopen and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distanceis a club and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in eveningdress.

    They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the goodtimes they had while getting rich at expense of the people. They playa friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne. Alsopresent is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good timedancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that, beforehe realizes it, it is time to go.

    Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises. The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St.Peter is waiting for him. “Now it’s time to visit heaven.”

    So, 24 hours pass with the head of state joining a group of contentedsouls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. Theyhave a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St.Peter returns. “Well then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another inheaven. Now choose your eternity.”

    The senator reflects for a minute, then the senator answers: “Well,I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but Ithink I would be better off in hell.”

    So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, downto hell.

    Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barrenland covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressedin rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags. The devilcomes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder.

    “I don’t understand,” stammers the senator. “YesterdayI was here and there was a golf course and club, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now all there isa wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?” The devil looks at him, smiles and says,

    “Yesterday we were campaigning . Today you voted”
