GDP: Growing Democrats’ Programs

GDP: Growing Democrats’ Programs

Bear with me as I make a strong and valid point concerning the less than stellar performance of the United States Congress. This is a lengthy post but one I believe needs to be seen.

Let me start by saying; I once had a very high level of respect for my Congressman, Sam Johnson, I had… I pretty much lost that respect after the Mexican president Felipe Calderon was given free rein on the floor of the U.S. Congress a while back.

This is the message I sent to Mr. Sam Johnson, concerning the Mexican president being allowed to tear America apart from the floor of Congress while our Congress Critters sat there and applauded, or did NOTHING to stop this never before heard of debacle:

White House, Democrats Applaud Mexican President

Congressman Johnson:

I wrote a VERY heated story on my blog, http://texasfred.net/archives/6743

I am not at all kind to ANY member of Congress at this time, and Sir, I include you in this.

I have but one question for you Congressman:

WHY IN THE HELL DIDN’T ALL OF THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS STAND UP, FLIP THAT MEXICAN SON OF A BITCH OFF AND WALK THE HELL OUT OF CONGRESS?

That’s the question asked on my blog, and some of my readers are getting very graphic in opining as to all the reasons why!

Sincerely,
TexasFred

And this was the *canned* response I got from Mr. Johnson:

A Message for ALL Senators and Members of Congress

July 24th, 2009 . by TexasFred

A Message for ALL Senators and Members of Congress

If you Vote for the ObamaCare or Cap and Trade bills, YOU’RE FIRED!!

How simple can it be? We can’t spell it out in any more clear language than this.

Sen. Cornyn of Texas has said he will vote against. Sen. Hutchison has intimated that she may vote against. Hutchison is, at best, a wild card. I don’t know if she can be counted on any more.

One other thing, my Congressman, Mr. Sam Johnson (R-3), is as solid as a rock. He will NEVER vote for such nonsense!

House Dems move to votes on health bill

House Dems move to votes on health bill

WASHINGTON (AP) – House Democrats on Thursday pushed ahead with legislation that would deliver on President Barack Obama’s promise to remake the health care system and cover some 50 million uninsured, despite concerns from their own party’s moderate and conservative lawmakers that the $1.5 trillion plan costs too much.

Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Elmendorf warned lawmakers the legislation that he has seen so far would raise costs, not lower them. Elmendorf was asked by Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.S., if the bills Congress is considering would “bend the cost curve.” The budget director responded: “The curve is being raised.”

Subsidies to help uninsured people would raise federal health care spending, which is already growing at an unsustainable rate, Elmendorf explained at a hearing. The Medicare and Medicaid cuts that lawmakers have offered to pay for the coverage expansion aren’t big enough to offset the cost trend, particularly in the long term, he said.

Congress is moving forward nonetheless. On the heels of the Senate health committee’s approval Wednesday of a plan to revamp U.S. health care, three House committees with jurisdiction over the issue shifted into action.

House Dems move to votes on health bill

We are being led down the path to destruction America! Many of our elected leaders are nothing more than HATERS of the American way and have become destructionists in the way they conduct the business of governing America.

This time around it appears that Texas Senators John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison are on the same page and WILL stand against this debacle that the Obama REGIME in attempting to foist off on the American people. This is from an email message from Hutchison.

We can and must do more to address this trend. Nationalized health care is not the answer. We must make it more affordable for those who are not covered through their employers to purchase their own health insurance. Tax benefits are given to employers for providing health benefits, so I believe that they should also be available to those who purchase health insurance from the individual market.

You are among thousands of concerned Texans who have written to express their views on this topic. You may be assured that as issues regarding health care reform and health insurance come before the Senate, I will keep your views in mind. I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to keep in touch on any issue of concern to you.

Sincerely,
Kay Bailey Hutchison
United States Senator

Iranian police clash with protesters

Iranian police clash with protesters

EDITOR’S NOTE: Iranian authorities have barred journalists for international news organizations from reporting on the streets and ordered them to stay in their offices. This report is based on the accounts of witnesses reached in Iran and official statements carried on Iranian media.

Several thousand protesters — some chanting “Where is my vote?” — clashed with riot police in Tehran on Sunday as Iran detained local employees of the British Embassy, escalating the regime’s standoff with the West and earning it a stinging rebuke from the European Union.

Witnesses said riot police used tear gas and clubs to break up a crowd of up to 3,000 protesters who had gathered near north Tehran’s Ghoba Mosque in the country’s first major post-election unrest in four days.

Full Story Here:
Iranian police clash with protesters

Americans are all up in the air, wanting to take to the streets like the Iranians. But our fight is over the Cap and Trade bill passing a vote in Congress, not a presidential election. 

These people calling for take it to the streets protests have NO idea. People WILL die. Are Americans gutsy enough for that? Are you ready to become a martyr for the cause?

It’s hard to get people out protesting this issue when they see THEIR Congresscritters doing a GREAT job and representing their constituents as We, The People demand! It’s hard to get folks from here in my part of Texas to protest against the ones that aren’t doing the right thing. They aren’t our Congressmen.

ALL of our North Texas representatives voted against Cap and Trade. OUR Representatives did their job! The Congresscritters that voted FOR this debacle need to be taken to the woodshed by THEIR voters.

I tried to send a message to each one of the Putrid 8, I wanted to voice MY anger too! These clowns don’t accept messages from people NOT in their constituency. Imagine that!

And let’s face the cold hard facts, standing on the street protesting some IDIOT congressman that is not my congressman is a lot like the people on Facebook and all their *Impeach Pelosi* bullshit. There is NOTHING that I, as a Texan, can do about Pelosi, other than implore my Congressman to oppose the ignorant old bitch. And he does, at every opportunity.

Protest is only effective when heads roll. Faint heart ne’er won fair lady.

If the people of a certain ward, precinct, county or state don’t take up the fight against their idiot Congresscritters, there’s not a damn thing that I can do to help them. A man that won’t fight for himself is NOT worth ME fighting FOR him.

This is not a time for the weak of heart, if it’s protest you want, by all means, PROTEST, and do it heartily! If blood bothers you, you had better stay home, as the title said, There Will Be Blood!
