From Clark County Conservative

by lewwaters

To All My Liberal Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of all others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wish.

Democrat Diverted Millions of Dollars From Aviation Security and Explosives Detection

by lewwaters

In all of the defenses being foisted upon the American public over the Obama administrations poor performance in regards to the Christmas Day thwarted terrorist attack aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 just prior to landing in Detroit, Michigan, an amendment submitted by Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd (Conn) (who avoided serving in Viet Nam by managing to get into the Army Reserves) has surfaced that previously slipped under the wire.

This past July 2009, Dodd attached an amendment to the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2010 “reducing aviation security appropriations by $4.5 million in favor of firefighter grants,” shown to be highly ineffective.

Dodd’s amendment SA 1443 states in part, “The total amount of appropriations under the heading ‘AVIATION SECURITY’ under the heading ‘Transportation Security Administration’ under title II of this Act, the amount for screening operations and the amount for explosives detection systems under the first proviso under that heading, and the amount for the purchase and installation of explosives detection systems under the second proviso under that heading are reduced by $10,000,000.”

I’m sure that this unnecessary diversion of funds for explosives detection at airports had nothing to do with support from the Firefighters Union in his failed bid the presidency, right?

Apologists for the Obama Democratic cartel try to divert attention away from their lack of protecting the American public with wild claims that Senator DeMint is single handedly blocking any nomination of a new chief to TSA, ignoring that the agency has an acting head and that Obama lolly-gagged around for some 8 months before even proposing a permanent head to the TSA.

Also ignored by pundits wishing to protect Obama, Democrats have kept the House and Senate bogged down for months with the rush to Health care reform and Cap & Trade, ignoring the increasing threat of terrorist strikes against America since President Bush left office.

Hopenchange is beginning to look like hope we can survive the 4 years of Obama and change to a government that actually is willing to protect the country, not just take from defense during a war to give to Union supporters.
