Herger voted against Cap & Trade and he voted against the Hugo Chavezation of our health care system.

That's all I really need to know.

If one is to visit Reed's website you will learn he for "safe" nuclear power that might be available "someday" - meaning that he supports Obama's energy policy which is to -

shut down domestic oil production every chance he gets while loaning money to Mexico and Brazil so they can drill for oil, refuse to move forward on nuclear power while buying nearly useless solar panels from China so they can use OUR money to build nuclear power plants and we get toxic twirly light bulbs, thousands of non-productive "green" bureaucrats, smart meters, PG&E commercials imploring us not to use too much power so "EVERYONE CAN HAVE SOME" and -

Gubernatorial candidates like Jerry Brown who claim our California economy can be revived if we just run around insulating everything without an explanation of where that money is supposed to come from.

I hadn't realised that type of work was in such high demand.

---

And finally, someone needs to send a memo to Reed.

Diablo Canyon Nuclear power plant supplies northern California with over 20 percent of our power.

Solar panels - after years and years of propaganda, millions and millions in tax dollars, and billions in lost economic opportunity for California's only makes up less than 0.5 percent of our energy mix.

Green bureaucrats outnumber green jobs by 2 to 1 and neither would exist if the taxpayers weren't paying for it.

And its time to start growing the pie instead of just trying to slice it up into smaller and smaller pieces so "EVERYONE CAN HAVE SOME".

You guys are haters because Wally has the easiest, best job ever. He works when he feels like it and he takes a lot of vacations, while getting paid all kinds of taxpayer money. However Buster has made a good point. Would you rather have some lesbian anarchist extreme left socialist or lazy worthless Wally?

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
--Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
--Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
-- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
-Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
-- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
-- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
-- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
-- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
-- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
-- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
-- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
-- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
-- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do"
-- Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
-- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
-- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
-- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

So Buster what's your point? Both sides support our war machine and Saddam was our man for along time. Now our biggest trade partners are the communist ditcators in China. We allowed defense contractors to help the Chinese with their missle program while crying about there defense build up. We spend twice as much on our military as the rest of the world combined . That is why we are in such a debt crisis. So less re elect incumbents and hope for change.
P.s Wally was never a farmer.

Liberalism is destructive - evertime, always, and without exception.

The contest is between Herger and Reed.

The democrats just had an opportunity to field a superior candidate and they decided not to.

Linda Chavez: Obama has no clue about entrepreneurship

The president's problem is that he has neither experience in, nor understanding of, the private economy. He has worked exclusively in the nonprofit and government sector.

He has an unlimited faith in government and limited trust in private industry. And the president surrounds himself with people who share his myopia.

Obama: Dems are in trouble because Americans aren't thinking clearly

By: Byron York
Chief Political Correspondent

10/17/10

At a Saturday-evening fundraiser held in the home of a wealthy Massachusetts hospital executive, President Obama suggested Democrats are having difficulties in midterm campaigning because Americans simply aren't thinking clearly. Seeking to explain his party's troubles, the president focused not on controversial legislation like national health care and the stimulus but on evolutionary psychology. "Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared," Obama told the assembled Democrats, who paid $15,200 a person to attend. "And the country is scared."

To Buster, BK, whatever you're calling yourself these days:

You should stop putting so much effort into trying to change people's minds by hammering at them day after day. No one gives a rat's a$$ what you think or what you write. You come off as raving lunatic on these forums. Channel you're energy into positive something that will actually make a difference like say, looking for a job so the rest of us can stop supporting you.

Thank you Mr. Hood for a fine letter.

I dont think the public really understood how the media controlled information was so contrived until after he was elected. The fog of bogus so-called facts and the lack of investigation were amazing. I used to think the news reported facts. Silly me!
