Tuesday Morning Round Up

BY Melissa Murphy

A little Tuesday morning reading. And a bit of liberal blog linking. All in fun, of course. Suicide bombers are just misunderstood Now we're supposed to feel sorry for the men who go out and kill our troops and their fellow citizens because they're trying to get attention and gain their five seconds of fame. There's no amount of Oprah Winfrey or Dr. Phil to explain away, or sugar coat what these men do. It's despicable. (Via Yahoo News)

Earmark Moratorium Rejected

Last Thursday, Senator Jim DeMint wanted to stop earmarks in the Federal budget and he had the support of both Republicans and Democrats for this measure. Even with the bipartisan support in the U.S. Senate for an earmark moratorium, this legislation failed due to the pork kings and queens wanting to have the ability to fund pet projects and pay favors back to campaign donors. Whatever happened to representing the common good of those in your states? I am quickly beginning to lose faith in a representative government, because this behavior shows that some U.S. Senators are more concerned about doing what is best for themselves.

Senate and House Vote to Continue Earmark Favor Factory

Despite a surge of grassroots and political support, a one-year moratorium on pork-barrel earmarks fell short in the Senate last night. Senator Jim DeMint and a bipartisan coalition of his colleagues offered an amendment to ban earmarks for the 2009 fiscal year, but the amendment was defeated 29-71. Senator DeMint deserves credit for taking the lead in the Senate on this important issue.

Pork Dieting? Earmark Rhetoric Does Not Reflect the Money Trail Reality

BY Patrick Temple-West

WASHINGTON – For all the tough talk in Washington about eliminating earmarks, lawmakers are still clinging to the popular practice of diverting federal funds to pet projects to the tune of $39.4 billion. Earlier this week, Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Hillary Clinton, N.Y., and Barack Obama, Ill., announced they would co-sponsor a one-year moratorium on all congressional earmarks during the fiscal 2009 appropriations cycle.

The Obama Spendorama

On Wednesday afternoon, Senator Wayne Allard (R-CO) introduced an amendment to the Senate Budget Bill. The amendment, which he called "The Obama Spendorama" went down to defeat, with Allard himself voting against it, but it brought an important point to the forefront of the budget debate. You can read my entire discussion of the amendment at HumanEvents.com.

In a disappointing turn, the Senate voted last night against the DeMint amendment for a moratorium on earmarks for the 2009 fiscal year.  The good guys voting for the ban:

Will Congress Pass Earmark Reform?

These remarks by the Clinton and Obama campaigns are certainly good news on the earmark front, but, unfortunately, the overall outlook for reform still isn't good.

Net Neutrality Regulation Hurts Families

The Christian Coalition of America is an important voice for pro-family values. However, in recent testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, the group threw its support behind a new “Washington-knows-best” regulatory scheme that would not only stifle innovation and growth, but also limit the ability of America’s parents to protect their children from objectionable and dangerous Internet content.
