Well let's see now. The president didn't go out of town, we had a big bipartisan meeting at the white house, & congress had to work instead of going home. All of this so we could get, tax cuts for the rich as well as those working making 250k or less, 13 more months for the unemployed, & all get to keep more of there money on the millions of dollars they are going to inherit & yes I almost forgot. The employed will get a 2% tax brake in there paycheck.
Now as I understand it all of this will add to the nations debt as none of it is paid for by any other legislation.
Now perhaps I just missed it, but what was in all of that was for the seniors that are not working?????

So I sent Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga a e-mail asking why he did not at least push for bill H.R. 5987 to get seniors at least a one time $250 as they did not even get a cost of living increase for 2010 & 11. I got a the standard form letter (e-mail) back. So I responded that I did not want the standard form letter I wanted to know why. Today I got a phone call from his office with this answer from just one of his aid. The sen. can NOT BACK ANY BILLS THAT ARE NOT PAID FOR SO THEY DO NOT ADD TO THE DEBT.

duh!! What part of this am I not understanding.

But but but...the democRATS gave us the START treaty, aka the bay of kenyan pigs.

Putin played the stooge like a kenyan violin. No missile defense for the US, as Iran sets up missile sites in Venezuela capable of striking the US with chem and bio weapons. Russia gets rid of what they don't want and we're prohibited from developing what we need.

Missiles targeting us in our hemisphere, how nice. The Kenyan stooge sacrificed US security to score political points. He's a GD disgrace.



"According to Die Welt, Venezuela has agreed to allow Iran to establish a military base manned by Iranian missile officers, soldiers of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Venezuelan missile officers. In addition, Iran has given permission for the missiles to be used in case of an 'emergency.' In return, the agreement states that Venezuela can use these facilities for 'national needs'- radically increasing the threat to neighbors like Colombia. The German daily claims that according to the agreement, Iranian Shahab 3 (range 1300-1500 km), Scud-B (285-330 km) and Scud-C (300, 500 and 700 km) will be deployed in the proposed base. It says that Iran also pledged to help Venezuela in rocket technology expertise, including intensive training of officers

"Venezuela has also become the country through which Iran intends to bypass UN sanctions. Following a new round of UN sanctions against the Islamic Republic, for example, Russia decided not to sell five battalions of S-300PMU-1 air defence systems to Iran. These weapons, along with a number of other weapons, were part of a deal, signed in 2007, worth $800 million. Now that these weapons cannot be delivered to Iran, Russia is looking for new customers; according to the Russian press agency Novosti it found one: Venezuela."

Both Iran and Venezuela are sworn enemies of the United States. So, if Iran were to deploy missiles in Venezuela that could hit American cities, it would prove to be a grave threat to the security of the United States. It would not be necessary for Iran to develop nuclear bombs; its bomb program is, in any case, stymied by the stuxmet computer worm. Chemical and/or biological weapons would suffice."

Steven Spielberg advising Nancy Pelosi on rebranding Democrats -- 12/22/2010

Midway through Philip Rucker and Paul Kane's story about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's transition to minority leader comes an interesting bit of news. The California Democrat, vilified by Republicans in the last election, has turned to director Steven Spielberg for help rebranding House Democrats.

Lawmakers say she is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius. Lawmakers said Spielberg has not reported to Pelosi with a recommendation.
Spielberg has been a power player in Democratic politics for years, working on everything from President Bill Clinton's millennial celebrations to the 2008 Democratic National Convention. He endorsed Hillary Clinton in the last presidential race, but since then he's helped fundraise for President Obama.

But, the news that he is advising the leading Democrat in the House on building a strong party brand would seem to be a different -- and more expansive -- role than Spielberg has played in the past.
