The purge of four rebellious Republicans from plum committee assignments Monday is provoking anger in some quarters of the House Republican Conference, with the dissidents threatening to more aggressively push against leadership’s agenda.
It is unclear whether conservative anger will be offset by the fear the moves inspired in would-be collaborators.
Still, two lawmakers booted from their coveted slots are threatening retaliatory strikes against Speaker …
As millions of my fellow Americans, I am outraged, devastated and extremely angry by the democrat's unbelievable arrogance and disdain for We The People. Despite our screaming “no” from the rooftops, they forced Obamacare down our
throats. Please forgive me for using the following crude saying, but
it is very appropriate to describe what has happened. “Don't
urinate on me and tell me it's raining.” Democrats say their
Come on by and have a look at my new Patriotic store. It is my belief any freedom loving conservative would love to wear one of these fine t-shirts. Quality T-Shirts, Good Quality Printjobs from Printfection. I ask humbly for your patronage and really hope you enjoy what I have to offer.
During the presidential campaign, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Barack Obama would be a good candidate because he was "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one". Since the exposure of his racist comment, Reid has been running around apologizing to every black in America.
The elephant in the living room of the controversy that everyone seems to be ignoring is Reid's horrific slap in the face of white America. In essence Reid believes, "most… Continue
The Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians for 2009 list has been announced by Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption. The list is compiled at the end of each year. The list, in alphabetical order, includes:
Boehner reads from the bill and exposes the truth. This bill is nothing but a "Power" grab by the Socialist Democrats. In fact if you read History of the 1930's Germany you will find that the Democrat plan is actually the same step as Hitler's facism. There is "NO"…Continue
HR3200 mandates the purchase of and participation in some form of health insurance with ensuing mandated taxes and penalties for non-compliance. (employers and individuals)
This bill eliminates my freedom to choose (to participate or not) as an American citizen.
The bill gives unyielding power to the President, the Health Choices Commissioner and Secretaries of Health. The Task force term limits are too long and too limiting in the necessary qualifications of committee members. Basic… Continue

The following is an excerpt from an article in the "Palin Power" Section of today's The Cypress Times -
You can literally feel the heat as you read these words from Sarah Palin. This is a defiant woman who is on record saying: “Politically, if I die, I die, but I won’t sit down, and I won’t shut up!” Certainly the woman known as Sarahcuda by her championship basketball teammates is not sitting down, and not shutting up.
These are terrible times, times that try men’s souls.… Continue

What the Pelosi Health-Care Bill Really Says
Here are some important passages in the 2,000 page legislation.
By BETSY MCCAUGHEY
The health bill that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is bringing to a vote (H.R. 3962) is 1,990 pages. Here are some of the details you need to know.
What the government will require you to do:
• Sec. 202 (p. 91-92) of the bill requires you to enroll in a "qualified plan." If you get your insurance at work, your employer will have a "grace… Continue
I thought it was bad enough that the 23rd Congressional District of New York State, in essence, elected Nancy Pelosi to the vacant John M. McHugh congressional seat by 49% to 46%. I couldn't help but ask myself, "What were they thinking?" Or better still, “What were they doing?” Given the choice between an independent conservative Doug Hoffman and the hand-picked candidate of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Bill Owens) they voted for the latter.
In one of the most important election periods in… Continue
The Worst Bill Ever
Epic new spending and taxes, pricier insurance, rationed care, dishonest accounting: The Pelosi health bill has it all.
Nov 1, 2009
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly told fellow Democrats that she's prepared to lose seats in 2010 if that's what it takes to pass ObamaCare, and little wonder. The health bill she unwrapped last Thursday, which President Obama hailed as a "critical milestone," may well be the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation… Continue
A recentRasmussen Poll indicates that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains the most well known and most disliked of Congressional leaders.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of likely voters view Pelosi unfavorably, up just one point from September. That percentage has fallen in a range of 53% to 64% since…
I've picked up and been scanning through Shel Silverstein's book "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and came across another poem I want to share for it's current relevance. The title of this poem is "Traffic Light"...
The traffic light simply would not turn green
So the people stopped to wait
As the traffic rolled and the wind blew cold
And the hour grew dark and late.
Zoom-varoom, trucks, trailers,
Bikes and limousines,
Clatterin' by -- me oh… Continue

A few months ago, a Republican U.S. Senator told me that he pleaded with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to pressure the HELP Committee Democrats to let the Republicans negotiate and help shape the bill, since the Democrats were not listening or including the Republicans in any discussions. Senator Kennedy’s staff told the Republican Senator to take a… Continue
While millions of Americans are relying on unemployment compensation, food stamps and charities to exist, Congress decided to spend $2 million dollars on extra jets for their traveling convenience. These will supply private planes for lawmakers and high level bureaucrats so they can travel in style.
The jet planes they are ordering have been described as having large, palatial interiors and three temperature zones. The company that makes the Gulfstream G550's, that are being paid for… Continue
