Conservative Political and Social Issues
A social engineering bill to restrict residence in the suburbs and rural areas and force Americans into city centers has passed the United States Senate Banking Committee and is on the fast track to passage in the Senate.The bill is called the Livable Communities Act (SB 1619) and it was introduced by corruptocrat outgoing Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). It seeks to fulfill the United Nation’s plan Agenda 21, adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and signed onto by “New World Order” President George H.W. Bush.This bill is designed to destroy your community. According to the non-profit American Policy Center the bill:Is a blueprint for the transformation of our society into total Federal control. Will enforce Federal Sustainable Development zoning and control of local communities. Will create a massive new “development” bureaucracy. Will drive up the cost of energy to heat and cool your home. Will drive up the cost of gasoline as a way to get you out of your car. Will force you to spend thousands of dollars on your home in order to comply. A carrot and stick policy will be used to get your local government to sign on. The carrot is billions of dollars in grants available if your local government agrees to amend zoning laws that restrict housing in outlying areas, forcing people to give up their homes and land and move into the city center.The stick will be denial of the funds and bad publicity generated by “Green” organizations criticizing government officials for turning down free money.The rub is the grants will come with strings attached that force local governments to bend to the will of the Feds.The idea of these social engineering initiatives is to force people to live in a congested area in high rise buildings with housing on the upper floors and stores on the bottom. The whole area will be linked by mass transit creating the “utopian” communities loved by socialists.The result will be higher costs for housing (because overcrowding will make housing space a premium) and goods and services (because of less choice and competition) and less freedom to move about (because cars won’t be necessary and parking space will be prohibitively expensive).As we pointed out here President Barack Obama is — not surprisingly — an advocate of this type of nonsense. And his cabinet is populated by elitists who think they know better than you how you should live.It is imperative that you call your two Senators immediately and tell them to oppose Dodd’s SB1619.
A pro-family organization says it's hypocritical for high-ranking officials in the Pentagon to condemn a Florida church's plans to burn Qurans when U.S. military personnel burned Bibles last year in Afghanistan. Pastor Terry Jones told reporters outside his church in Gainesville Wednesday afternoon that he remains unconvinced that "backing down is the right thing" to do regarding the planned burning of Qurans on Saturday. That protest has drawn objection from Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. and NATO commander, who says images of burning Qurans will be used by extremists to inflame public opinion and incite worldwide violence. Earlier today on ABC's Good Morning America, President Barack Obama criticized the event, calling it a "stunt" and warning it could become "a recruitment bonanza for al-Qaeda." Other notable Obama administration officials, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, have also condemned the planned Quran burning. But Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis at the American Family Association (AFA), thinks it is the height of hypocrisy for the U.S. government to condemn the church, considering the fact that the U.S. military incinerated Bibles that were sent to Afghanistan in May 2009."There's really a staggering level of hypocrisy and double standard here for the military to burn the Holy Bible and then complain when a pastor's going to do the same thing to the Quran," Fischer contends. "You know, if the military was going to be fair here and even-handed, they would count up the number of Holy Bibles that they incinerated in Afghanistan, and then they would allow Reverend Jones to burn the same number of Qurans."The AFA issues analysis director believes the whole incident illustrates the difference between Christianity and Islam. "When these Bibles were burned [in May 2009], the Christian community did not riot in the streets; we did not threaten violence against anyone," he points out. "[But] when even the threat of Qurans being burned takes place, it's like we're dealing with Armageddon [or] with World War III."In a OneNewsNow poll conducted in May 2009, more than 60 percent of respondents said -- in reaction to the decision by the U.S. military to destroy the Bibles -- that "if it had been the Quran, this never would have happened." Hypocrisy 'pretty well established'Meanwhile, a senior Army strategist and Pentagon advisor also sees hypocrisy in high-ranking officials in the Pentagon strongly condemning the plans of Florida's Dove World Outreach Center to burn Qurans, when the Pentagon itself burned Bibles last year in Afghanistan. Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis (USA-Ret.) says while the concerns expressed by Petraeus, Gates, Clinton, and Obama are certainly legitimate, there is a note of hypocrisy in light of the fact that the U.S. military -- in order to appease Muslims -- last year torched Bibles sent to Afghanistan. "[Certainly] the armed forces should be sensitive to people's religious symbols or their text," he states. "[And] I said at the time [of the Bible burning] that I thought people would go ballistic if the armed forces were to burn Korans. "But instead of burning the Bibles, there is no reason that they shouldn't have returned them to those who purchased the Bibles," he continues. "But we recognize that in a Muslim country, Christians are just not welcome. The hypocrisy is pretty well established. It is disconcerting." Maginnis notes that unlike Islam, which tends to make the Quran itself a symbol of holiness, Christians base their faith on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ -- not on the Bible.

God willing, should they try to carry out their crime against the Quran, God will tear their state apart and they will become God's lesson to anyone who tries to desecrate the holybook.We would right now ask no one to burn Qurans.We are absolutely strong on that. It is not the time to do it.
The Obama administration on Thursday told health insurers that it will track those who enact "unjustified" rate increases linked to the health overhaul and may block those companies from a new marketplace for insurance coverage. Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services, issued the warning in a letter to Karen Ignagni, the insurance industry's top lobbyist. Ms. Sebelius said some insurers were notifying enrollees that their insurance premiums will increase next year as a result of the law's new benefits. The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that some carriers are asking for total premium hikes topping 20% starting this month, and the carriers are attributing one to nine percentage points of the increases to new benefit mandates in the law. "There will be zero tolerance for this type of misinformation and unjustified rate increases," Ms. Sebelius wrote. "We will not stand idly by as insurers blame their premium hikes and increased profits on the requirement that they provide consumers with basic protections." Beginning Sept. 23 or later, many new plans for individuals and small employers must begin letting children stay on their parents' insurance policies until age 26. These plans also face a requirement to eliminate co-payments for preventive care, give coverage to children regardless of pre-existing medical conditions and eliminate lifetime coverage caps.
A one-man grand jury has been authorized to investigate possible election fraud in Oakland County. At the request of Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, the county’s circuit court judges approved the special investigator this afternoon. The request followed reports that Oakland County Democratic party officials were involved in helping put candidates for the so-called Tea Party on the November ballot. Several of those candidates said they did not sign affidavits to run for office that were notarized by recently resigned Democratic Party official Jason Bauer. A Free Press investigation published Friday also linked the county Democrats’ chairman Mike McGuinness to the effort to get Tea Party candidates to run in hotly contested races to draw votes from Republicans and help Democrats win. Patterson applauded the court for approving the request.
Anon, i guess your upset at the Republican party for trying to get Ralph Nader on the ballot in 2008 even thought he wasn't trying in Michigan. And i am sure your mad at the people who put Zach Brandenburg up to running against Leon Drolet, and Jack Brandenburg. And so you don't get it twisted, anyone who commits election fraud should be punished.

No AL only the conservatives and Republicans get punished. Just like the Christians get punish for the shit muslims don't get punished for.
anon lmao. Always the playing the victim. Such amazing hypocrisy from the right. They hate special interests groups playing the victim but they love to play it themselves. Just look at Anon's post. Wahhhh poor christians always getting punished. Last time i checked i didn't see Islamic cameramen going to St. Anne's sausage fest to challenge Christians on camera. But Chris will post christians doing the same to Muslims. And cry like a bitch about it. Typical rightie double standard.
AL, i agree with you. Funny how only the left doing it ends up on this blog. None of the righties ever include themselves in their posts.
911 We Must Never Forget The Victims That Were Murdered That Day Cause The MURDERS Still Want To Kill Us For NO Reason Other Than HATE!How Do You Appease HATE?
Al, why do people hate? they don't hate for no reason. they have some sort of reason even if its goofy, like conservative policies. Its usually fear. I mean why do conservatives oppose Gay marriage besides hate? Oh, its because they feel their Holy Book says so. See where i am coming from? People have or make up reasons. They usually find a way to rationalize their fear. Some just want power and make up enemies and theories to convince others like Newt Gingrich.
I'm going salmon fishing in the rivers up in Port Huron. Have fun.
Joe the booth was a place to ask questions and they did. Muslims just arrest Christians for freedom of speech and then they threaten to kill them. My Church has had numberous threats from Muslims since 9/11 so don't tell me we don't get our. And when it comes down too it Joe the left act like animals. Just look at the National Mall after O(bama and then after the Tea Party. Just look at all the riots and threats the left have done. You liberal assholes want to blame us for shit we never did and you can't proove we did when there are hundreds of cameras around. The "poor me" is all on you libs and the Muslims.
Joe do you blame America for 9/11?
Joe You Made 911 Into A Political Thingy! Fanatics Of Islam Religon Are Out To Kill Us Cause That Is Their Response To Any Religon Other Than Theirs.Fanatics Will NOT Be Stopped With Talk And Appeasment. Joe You Are A Lib Whom Said " A Crisis Is A Terrible Thing To Waste". Thats Sounds Like That Fear Thing Your Talking About.What Do You Think? Joe Hating Us Is Not Knew To OUR Nation Its Usually ENVY Which Is Not OUR Problem. Hating And Murdering OUR Citizens Because Of Religious Beleif Is OUR Problem. How Joe Do You APPEASE Terrorist That Will NOT Rest Till ALL OUR Citizens Are Dead Or Under Their Control. Whats Your Answer TALK?
"why do people hate? they don't hate for no reason"Why do we hate radical Islam?Answer: 9-11 and the destruction of innocent lives by what Radical Islam who "feel their Holy Book says so", Joe.They started this, or did you forget what happen 9 years ago.Conveniently, most on your side do. Like it never happened.And speaking of Gay marriage and "they feel their Holy Book says so"Read the bible, Joe. It does. Not because we "feel it says so""Some just want power and make up enemies"This statement, right there shows you are in denial that Radical Islam wants to destroy this nation.That attitude is what brought on 9-11. And caught the giant sleeping.Wake the h*ll up
Why do you hate so much Joe? I see more hate coming from you libs then the tea partiers. Why are you libs always so violent with your protests and then wonder why there is violence? Why do you libs side with the muslims that want to destroy America and kill Americans? Why do you libs side with illegal immigrants over citizens? Why do you libs hate the America that made us the greatest nation this planets ever known? It sure looks like you libs are the haters of all that is good in this world.
Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
