For TEXAS Bloggers ONLY!

The information in this post is pretty well Texas specific but you folks in other states may want to make a move in this same direction! Hammer your Senators if they voted FOR this debacle. Pull your support and let them KNOW you have pulled it.  

John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, our U.S. Senators from Texas both voted FOR the bailout last night.

Today I dropped my support of Sen Cornyn and his re-election to the post of Senator, and I sent the Cornyn campaign and Sen Cornyn himself an email letting them know, it can be read in the thread linked here: Texas House members see opposition to bailout bill weakening

In a very short time I was contacted by Vincent Harris, wanting my phone number, their campaign manager wanted to talk to me, and I told him NO, I could not, and would not support ANY candidate that voted to bailout $700B, a figure that is still low, actual figures are reported closer to $820B, and that I was pulling their logo from TexasFred’s, The American Conservative and The Texas Connection, and I did.

Jimmy Kerr of But That’s Just My Opinion posted a message in my comments saying he had done the same thing. Jimmy and I are trying to contact and encourage as many Texas bloggers as possible to contact Vincent and let him know that YOU are doing the same thing as well, lets send Cornyn a HUGE, Texas sized message!

Please, if you believe that this is a very important issue, PLEASE contact Vincent and tell him that you’re dropping the logo too, and ask to be removed from their blog roll, no LINK is that important, request that your blog be taken OFF of their roll…

Contact Vincent here:
vincent@johncornyn.com

I think our elected officials have forgotten how bloggers rose to the challenge on the ILLEGAL Immigration issue, we can, and MUST do it again, and there is NO time to waste. The House votes tomorrow, FLOOD your Congresscritters with email, make them painfully aware that IF they vote this BS through, they have just signed their own termination notice.

Layoff’s are in order, permanent ones, it’s time that these pandering politicos realized just WHO they work for…

Obama Tried to Stall GI’s Iraq Withdrawal

Obama Tried to Stall GI’s Iraq Withdrawal

WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.

According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.

“He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington,” Zebari said in an interview.

Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops – and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its “state of weakness and political confusion.”

“However, as an Iraqi, I prefer to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open.” Zebari says.

Though Obama claims the US presence is “illegal,” he suddenly remembered that Americans troops were in Iraq within the legal framework of a UN mandate. His advice was that, rather than reach an accord with the “weakened Bush administration,” Iraq should seek an extension of the UN mandate.

Obama Tried to Stall GI’s Iraq Withdrawal

There are many things that can be said concerning Sen. Barack Hussein Obama. Many things actually, none of them contain the words, honesty, integrity, America 1st, truth, honor or anything even remotely resembling morality!

Obama talks out of both sides of his mouth, at the same time, and neither side speaks anything that can be believed. Obama cares about a few things, 1st and foremost is OBAMA and getting to the Oval Office. 2nd, his vow to stand by Islam. 3rd, his secret desire to turn America into a socialist haven, headed by him and run under sharia law.

Our troops, the American people and this nation are nothing more than a stepping stone for Barack Hussein Obama, he wants to change America alright, and if we live through that change, we won’t recognize what’s left…

A big tip of the Stetson to American and Proud, where I found this one!
