LOST

ACTION ALERT
January 27, 2005
Now that the elections are over, the politicians and special interests in Washington will feel free to do what they want -- ignore public opinion -- unless we convince them otherwise. Senator Richard Lugar, chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, wants the U.S. Senate to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) as soon as possible. Lobbyists representing multi-national corporations are busy convincing U.S. senators to vote in favor of LOST, and well-funded think tanks are holding briefings to marshal support for ratification.

Governator Gets it

ONE REPUBLICAN WHO APPARENTLY "GETS IT"...
"Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably the most well-known celebrity to drop in on today's inaugural festivities in Washington, but he left plenty of controversy back home in California. The editorial board of the liberal Sacramento Bee couldn't believe their ears when the Governator dropped byTuesday to push his ambitious plans for pension overhaul, redistricting reform and merit pay for teachers. One editor said that even when Ronald Reagan had occupied the executive mansion, no governor had ever been so forth right in explaining why government should be smaller.
Mr.Schwarzenegger told the Bee that the public sector is a "monster" that needs to be "starved." The board tried hard to get the governor to say he would raise taxes to address the state's budget deficit. He flatly rejected the idea. Raising taxes "is out of the question because it will not work," he said, explaining that trying to fix the state's problems with new revenue would only be an excuse to defer needed reforms. "Taking money out of the private sector is a no-no," Schwarzenegger reiterated. "We don't want to feed the monster. We don't want to feed the state -- the public sector -- and starve the private sector. We want to feed the private sector and starve the public sector."

Why I do what I do.

New site to visit

Linked to the title is a new web site which is a daily must read for conservatives. It is called the "Wide Awakes", named after supporters of Abe Lincoln in 1860 who marched through the streets in torchlight parades and spread the word of Lincoln’s candidacy.

It has 23 or so revolving authors and will be a great source of knowledge for you, so stop on by and take a look.

KOFI must go!

The link in the title is to a web site where you can add your name to a petition in a letter to Congressional leaders urging them to withhold U.S. payments to the United Nations until there's a new Secretary General. That's a great start, but we'd like to have more than 4,000 when we submit it to Congress. If we're going to achieve our goal, we need your help.

Tsunami was to punish Christians

So say some imams. Story By Arnaud de Borchgrave THE WASHINGTON TIMES linked to title.
And to think some people in the Middle East will believe this.

CBS Ousts 4 over Bush report

Story is linked to the title, but it is about time they caught on to what most of us already knew. The story was bogus. Here is the first part of the report.....

(CBS) Four CBS News employees, including three executives, have been ousted for their role in preparing and reporting a disputed story about President Bush’s National Guard service. The action was prompted by the report of an independent panel that concluded that CBS News failed to follow basic journalistic principles in the preparation and reporting of the piece. The panel also said CBS News had compounded that failure with a “rigid and blind” defense of the 60 Minutes Wednesday report.

Education....broken

NOT BROKE...BROKEN
By ANY objective measurement, Washington, DC, public schools stink. But as the Washington Post noted this week, per pupil funding in the District nowtops $11,269 per year...higher than any state in the country. Remember this the next time some teachers union activist or education bureaucrat in your town calls for higher spending to fix what ails YOUR government skools.

ACLU and Communism

This is a great post about who started the ACLU. The title is linked to the blog I borrowed this information from (with permission). Some of it is here......more will be in the first comment.

Roger Baldwin, the first director of the ACLU, was a communist. He explains in his book, Liberty Under the Soviets, “I joined. I don’t regret being a part of the Communist tactic, which increased the effectiveness of a good cause. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the Communists wanted…”
William Z. Foster, then National Chairman of the Communist Party USA and an ACLU co-founder, is famous for this 1932 quote: “The establishment of an American Soviet government will involve the confiscation of large landed estates in town and country, and also, the whole body to forests, mineral deposits, lakes, rivers and so on.” He was the author of "Toward Soviet America".

Socialism at work

Linked to the title is a great article about how socialism whould work in the classroom. interesting reading.

MoveOn.org needs to move on

Got this from a GOP County chairman I know. If you want to sign a petition against them it is linked to the title. Most of the article will be posted under the first comment of this post.

ALERT: Because "The Point" offers a rare conservative voice on network television, MoveOn.org has launched a campaign to silence this nightly commentary on Sinclair Broadcast Group stations across America. Your help is needed!Infamous for ultra-liberal skullduggery funded by foreign-born multi-billionaire George Soros, MoveOn.org is colluding with Media Matters for America in an effort to twist advertisers' arms and economically smother Sinclair Vice President Mark Hyman's commentary that counters in a small way the pro-Democrat deluge that inundates viewers from other news sources.Don't let MoveOn.org coerce this voice!

Shop Red

Thankfully the liberals have done all the work, now we just have to act on it. They have a site that shows what corporations donated money to the republicans and democrats. This is for the expressed purpose of getting people to support the Blue shops. Go to the site attached to the title and support the red sites. A few notables are; Home Depot, Circuit City, Dollar General, Sams Club, Sears, Walmart, Target, GE, Maytag, Charmin, Luvs, Pampers (for you republican parents). Now for some of the bad guys; Amazon, Barnes and Noble (I'll stop buying books from them), Gap, Old navy, Bed Bath and Beyond, and there you have it, go spend money at red stores.
