The Big T Pic of the Day

I knew that was going on in the Ronald McDonald House!

Democrat Rep. Kanjorski: The people ate it up!

Have you seen this tasty little quote from Pennsylvania Democrat Congressman Paul Kanjorski? Here is a video of Kanjorski admitting the Democrats lied about the situation and pulling out of Iraq during the 2006 mid-term elections. Here is the quote:

“I’ll tell you my impression. We really in this last election, when I say we…the democrats…that if we won the Congressional elections we could stop the war. Now anybody who’s a good student of government would know that wasn’t true. But you know…the temptation to want to win back the Congress…we sort of stretched the facts, and the people ate it up.”

Well, there you go. The democrats know who their constituents are and they depend on them to always “eat it up” or as I call it drink the kool-aide. Now they are drinking new Obama change flavor. I wonder what the after taste will be like on that one.

Liberal New York Times celebrates $4.00 gas and death to the SUV!!!

I told you liberals are happy with $4.00 gas prices! No, you will never here a liberal politician say it. No, they will say things like we need to conserve fuel, lessen our dependency on oil by finding alternative fuel sources, but here is a piece from the New York Times that confirms my assumptions that liberals are happy with $4.00 gas because of “global warming.”

The New York Times says $4.00 gas is good for the global warmers because the SUV era is coming to an end.

“It’s hard to convince most Americans that there is a silver lining to $4-a-gallon gasoline. But General Motors provided a nugget of good news when it announced that it would shutter much of its production of pickups and sport utility vehicles…”

“A nugget of good news?” Do these liberals ever take into consideration how many jobs were lost at GM in this “nugget of good news?” Of course that doesn’t matter, after all we are trying to save a world from the gas guzzling SUV that is causing “global warming.”

The Times goes on to tell us higher gas prices can take as much of 15% of the income from rural families where pickup trucks are a necessity more than a way of life. It also tells us higher gas prices is the cause of rising food prices and hurting the economy but then in the very next paragraph:

“Still Americans’ response to rising gasoline prices makes an excellent case for a gas tax. It proves that drivers will change their behavior in response to high fuel prices. And even if Detroit doesn’t buy global warming, drivers can help persuade it to embrace fuel efficiency. They don’t even have to know that the Honda Civic emits less than half the 13 tons of greenhouse gases spewed by the Ford F-150.”

Finally…a liberal proves my theory taxes are used to influence behavior. Now doesn’t that sound like freedom?

More importantly though, this liberal is basically saying the hell with the economy, the hell with rising food prices; we need higher fuel prices to prevent “global warming.”

We sit on an estimated 5.6 to 16 billion barrels of oil in ANWR and an estimated 60 trillion untapped cubic feet of natural gas off our coastlines. Yet we pay $4.00 gas and do nothing. Columnist Daniel Henninger wonders how long the US can remain a “serious country.” Excellent read.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to recognize the constitutional right of foreign terrorist suspects at Gitmo to challenge their detention in US courts! Here is the Wall Street Journal’s take. This is why Supreme Court appointments are so darn important.
A Big T hats off to David Kahl of Snellville, Ga. He realizes the value of education to his child and has taken his daughter out of the government ran school system. He is leaving his job to home school his daughter. If he can do it; what is your excuse?
Folks in central Florida facing foreclosure now has someone else to turn to besides the federal government to bail them out of their foreclosure predicament: Shaquille O’Neal. Yeah, the basketball playing type.
The Brits are releasing Osama Bin Laden’s “right hand man in Europe,” he has been banned from speaking with Bin Laden…Doesn’t that make you feel better.
I really don’t even know where to begin with this story. There is so many things ridiculously wrong here…lets just say it involves the board of a government ran school and a teacher, both in desperate need of counseling, a psychic, and the expectation of government solving all your life problems. What a read!
A New York man wants to sue the state in order to prove state aid to business, or what I like to call corporate welfare, is unconstitutional. Good luck with that.
