News about the pending lame duck session, new Wall Street bailout, the DISCLOSE Act, the government takeover of the internets, and Stimulus II got you down?
Here's a good reminder to get through the rest of the week from tea party friend Ray Stevens:
Rumors are swirling in Washington, D.C. about a potential "Lame Duck" session that could be held right after the November elections and before the new Congress is sworn-in. If liberals are thrown out of power in Congress this election cycle, the pressure will be that much greater and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will pull out all the stops as a last gasp to enact their socialist agenda. Specifically, the far left will be doing whatever they can to: 1. Pass the Cap and Trade Energy Tax Hike! 2. Slap American Taxpayers with another "Stimulus" Bailout Scheme!

Democracy and Power 112: Conflicts of interest The politician seeks a position of power, which requires the votes of his constituents. However to be a power elite, the politician must be a loyal member of a party. Often, the interest of the politician’s constituents and loyalty to the party are in conflict.
Washington, D.C. – This week, FreedomWorks launched the campaign website, “NoLameDuck.com” to build conservative grassroots opposition to a potential lame duck session immediately following the 2010 elections in November and before the new Congress is sworn-in.
They are at it again.More than a trillion dollars later and despite all we have learned from the failed taxpayer-funded bailouts and stimulus schemes that Congress and the President have crammed down our throats, liberals are trying to push yet another bailout bill over the finish line.TAKE ACTION -- STOP THE LATEST BAILOUT SCHEME!This latest attempt is being led by Rep. Barney Frank (D, MA-4) in the House and Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) in the Senate. But the Frank-Dodd bill -- H.R.
In the course of a day, one can run into many people with differing opinions on everything, especially on politics. Seeing that I live on a college campus, it is almost a rule that any new acquaintance is a bleeding heart liberal until proven otherwise.

Democracy and Power 106: A politician receives no financial gain for good policy or punishment for bad policy. It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong. – Thomas Sowell A politician’s rewards are immediate – power, prestige, and perquisites.
