Good for the (GOP) Gander?
With the recent failures of Republican's to weed out corruption in their own party, we may have seen the last of one party control over all three branches of government.
There are too many lobbyists' getting their hands into the pockets of lawmakers, and corruption is more often the result of the party in power having to get things done. The task of Majority leaders is to keep tabs on their members while doing their jobs for the American public, is becoming increasingly more difficult with each new session of congress.
Taking stock of this inept group of democrats taking over congress, it won't be long before their corruption makes pale those of Republican's just tossed. According to this report by ABC News, Dems are already telling Jack Abramoff to keep quiet about the six to eight high ranking senators taking bribes from him. Dems got one of their judges to request his immediate report to serve his jail time in an effort to keep investigations quiet.
Dems have made Harry Reid of Nevada Senate Majority leader even though he is filled with corruption from illegal land deals that have made him rich. Nancy Pelosi herself is one of the richest in congress and she has the nerve to say she cares about the poor while raising their taxes. The "rich" to democrat's is anyone far enough below them to not threaten their wealth, but above those in poverty.
Most U.S. citizens are considered relative paupers by rich Democrat's, who believe that government trumps charity and religion for a fit society, and it is their duty to see that the public is controlled in every way possible, living according to their laws, standards, rules and regulations set for everyone else except them.
Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) has been elected House majority leader by a split vote 149-86 over Pelosi endorsed John Murtha. "We've had our differences in our party," Pelosi told reporters after the voting. "We have come together." She quickly hailed Hoyer's "stunning victory" and said she looked forward to working with him "in a very unified way to bring our country to a new direction for all Americans, not just the privileged few." See this the way Dems do it, they state the exact opposite of their real intentions as if nobody knows. The privileged WHO, Nancy? How much is that Armani suit you wear? Talk about wolves in sheeps clothing, these dems need more cotton to cover-up with.
This new vote has divided the Democratic House caucus only a week after the party won a majority of seats in the Congress that convenes in January. Now they say they will tell president Bush to set a new course in Iraq, although he's way ahead of them, sending the Iraq Study Group last month to find new solutions, he's awaiting recommendations from them, not cut and run
In her first failure, Pelosi said: "I was proud to support [Murtha] for majority leader, because I thought that would be the best way to bring an end to the war in Iraq." She noted that Murtha had come out against the war a year ago and said he "changed the debate in this country in a way that I think gave us this majority." As for the contest for majority leader, she said, "We've had our debates; we've had our disagreements in that room. And now, that is over. . . . Let the healing begin."
Already Pelosi wants to forget her failures as if it never happened. She interprets the slim majority she was given as a vote of confidence in democrat's, instead of a rejection of corruption in the Republican party. My how her head swells so soon.
There will be no healing by these democrat's, as they wildly investigate everything in the Bush administration. Pelosi and her liberal 527 hate groups like MoveOn.org can't wait to divide the nation into groups, pitting one against the other. Gays vs. Religion, Marriage vs. Family, Poor vs. Business, Global Warming vs Automakers, etc., all to be paid for by raising taxes, taxes, and more taxes.
Dick Durbin of Illinois is the new whip. This is the same man who said that our troops in the U.S. Military were no better than Hitler, Stalin or Pol Pot, while we are fighting terrorists' in Iraq, emboldening the enemy to kill more of our troops. This was clearly high treason, but Republican's were too wimpy to do anything about it.
Then there is Jack Murtha who is basically senile and far out of touch with reality. He wants to "redeploy" our troops in Iraq 5000 miles away, claiming they can be of some help from that distance in a moments notice. I guess he thinks Star Trek is reality too, and they can just be beamed over anytime.
Robert Novak reports in his article Nancy's First Mistake, said:
"(Murtha) has been a backroom distributor of federal pork who disdained public exposure, in the headlines only as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1980 Abscam scandal. Murtha became an unlikely hero of the Left last year when he called for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq."
Pelosi also wanted to put impeached judge Alcee Hastings in as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Could Nancy be going for the "Oxymoron" award here?
These are the jackasses who could lead to a Republican victory (sweep) in '08. All the GOP has to do is wait for democrat's to defeat themselves. If Republican's could do it in just two years, dems should be able to cut that time in half easily, and they've gotten off to a good start with their first divided vote.
The American public has about had it with corruption in politics, and will throw out whom ever gets caught. So look for the liberals to cover-up for the dems using deceptions from the old media, which are easily exposed by real people on the internet. Little wonder dems want total control of that too!
However, the GOP has to find the guts to call them out, which remains to be seen under the new leadership of Bush's good friend, Mr. Mel Martinez who replaces Ken Mehlman, who did an excellent job in 2004.
It will be a very interesting couple of years, so stayed tuned!

Which (D)irection America?
Well folks, the election results are in, stolen or not, we must now lick our wounds like good little doggies wagging our tails to the democrats. Of course now that Jim Webb has been elected after dems came up with more ballots in the middle of the night, as learned from Chicago, he'll likely have more to say about licking in another of his perverse books.
Fittingly for the times we're living in, the election says that many American's desire change from the current direction. The war is a draaag, so we must abandon it and let terrorists' win. We'll pretend 9/11 never happened and terrorism doesn't exist, so we can all go on our merry way–dreaming of a society where everyone is happy-go-lucky because government runs everything and personal decision making is taken away. Too extreme? We'll see.
This congressional sweep to replace a few corrupt Republican's, may very well have been trading one type of moral failing for even worse ones, of advancing embryonic stem cell research, accelerating the forced acceptance of homosexuality, and solidifying the killing of the unborn—these are the basic tenets of the Democratic Party platform.
But, some ballot initiatives will make the talk of a major anti-conservative swing unrealistic. Liberal Democrats took the gubernatorial and senatorial races in Michigan, yet a ballot initiative abolished affirmative action by a 58-42 vote. Seven out of eight anti-gay marriage amendments to state constitutions passed. And nine states passed referendums asserting individual property rights against the government's power of eminent domain put in place recently by the U.S.S.C., so all is not lost for the GOP.
The U.S. economy has been just too darn good and far too real, so we want to wreck it by letting Democrat's tax corporations and individuals to bankruptcy, while closing our borders to trade. Immigration must not be so bad when democrats usher in full amnesty to illegals, (with Bush's approval) who will gratefully vote them into the White House in '08. The new Immigration legislation and border patrols must be pulled back to allow the Mexican's in (illegally), so government can provide them with social security benefits they never paid into. But don't worry folks, social security is actually just another entitlement program funded by American's, who Democrat's will make work harder and longer to pay for these illegals while taking more out of their paychecks in taxes to cover it. If the global elites have their way, soon there could be a borderless North American continent. This is essentially what American's voted for, without realizing it, having not been informed of the plans for full globalization.
The money flowing into government, having chopped the deficit in half, must now be stopped and reallocated by cutting the Military and Intelligence budgets, including Homeland Security. But isn't that how we got here in the first place?
Dems will use the coming employment layoffs to say that Bush's policies never worked while ignoring the detriment of increased taxation strangling small businesses closing in the thousands along with rate hikes that helped end the 1990's economy with a recession. But the falseness of that decade wasn't enough for liberals, who want desperately to revive their glory-days of corporate corruption, ie; Enron, Global Crossing, World com, etc., so they can rape the people of their money with overblown inventions and hyped-up marketing gimmicks by the liberal media, just as they did with the Internet bubble.
The era of the New Deal and Great Society are coming back with a vengeance, only this time in combination!
As the saying goes, "Old dogs don't do nothin' new," so Democrat's will once again bring back their worn out platform of social liberalism for the umpteenth time, failing as usual, perhaps taking the country down with them. It is amazing how the pubic refuses to learn from recent history, which they now want to repeat, thinking they'll get it right this time around.
In this election, Democrats didn't win, Republican's simply lost their way. Conservatism was forgotten after being hijacked by phonies called RINO's. Now the nation has once again strangled itself with liberalism, opening the door for the coming blue wave of liberal corruption. President Bush said "it was a thumpin' '" and thought the GOP would win, which as he said, shows how much he knows. Amazing but true.
One bright spot for the faithful is U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, R-Ind., who has now taken a leadership role for Conservatives, to bring back what was lost.
"I am running for Republican leader because we didn't just lose our majority, I believe we lost our way.
"Our opponents will say that the American people rejected our Republican vision. I say the American people didn't quit on the Contract with America, we did. And in so doing, we severed the bonds of trust between our party and millions of our most ardent supporters.
"Only by making a dramatic turn in the direction of the agenda of the Republican Revolution can we hope to attain majority status again..... We must again embrace the notion the Republicans seek power not simply to govern but change government. We are the agents of change and we must return to that reformist vision.
"I believe we must confront this moment with new leadership and new voices. We must take a page from the playbook of President Ronald Reagan who taught us that it is not enough to believe great things, we must effectively communicate great things to the American people."
Pence is absolutely right, and I'm delighted he has accepted this responsibility. In my personal view of what I'd like to see happen is that all potential republican candidates be required to undergo detailed background checks first, to weed out those like Foley and Abramoff by promising and carrying out indictments with large monetary penalties for those caught lying or falling to corruption. Will anything like that ever happen? That's doubtful, but it should. Campaign finance Reform was clearly not the right answer for cleaning up politics.
"You lie, you die" should be the new conservative motto. No more politically correct b.s., it is time to get tough with democrats by calling them on each and everyone of their deceptions, building an honest media to crush their lying liberal media. It is no longer enough to think that being nice will be good enough to win, we must be smart and strong against false accusations, while telling it like it is, fully communicating our ideas that always trump liberalism. Assume nothing! Conservative principles must be strictly adhered to while not caving in to the liberal doctrine of finger pointing and name calling, ie; intolerant, bigoted, stuffed shirts, and on and on. Being afraid of standing up for ones values makes them worthless. Conservative are smarter and better than that, and we must constantly prove it day in day out until the liberal disease is like getting a cold instead of cancer. Republican's need to learn the word NO, as in NO it is not that way, NO that did not happen like that, NO you're wrong. Be strong!
Getting back to the election, notice how suddenly the Democrats want to "work together" with the president.
"I told him (Bush) what I said last night -- that I looked forward to working in a bipartisan way with him, that the success of the president is always good for the country and I hoped that we could work together for the American people."
"It is time to put partisanship aside and find a new way forward - at home and in Iraq. Today, I ask the president to convene a bipartisan Iraq summit with the leaders of Congress."
I say fooey on the both of 'em! With their smaller margin of control in both houses, expect little if anything positive to be accomplished in the next two years. Now imagine if Democrat's had worked with the President and Republican's since 2000 or even 2002 or 2004 while Bush was begging them. The war might well be over with, and hundreds of soldiers may not have been killed due to leftist bashing of the war for political gain. So why didn't they? The answer is that they want America to run away in shame, to kowtow to the rest of the world so they can put America on the same level as everyone else, not by raising them up, but by knocking us down. Democrat's always put politics above life itself.
America plays Russian Roulette with Security
With the fall of Donald Rumsfeld, the democrats will want more. Other heads will role until the president is weakend enough to be impeached, which is the real goal of democrats as payback for Clinton, who still runs the shoe. Dems were hoping to rake Rummy over the coals while in office, but he saw the light and bailed while the gittin' was good. Soon we'll see what changes in policy former Secretarty of State James Baker recommends. For more on that see: Iraq is the GOP's Health Care Disaster.
Pelosi is already showing her dictator-ish demands... See: Pelosi aims to block Democratic hawks from key posts. "Nancy Pelosi wants total party discipline," a source in the Democratic Party leadership said. "If you played ball with the Republicans during this session, then you're not going to be given an important chair in the next session."
Large numbers of troops in Iraq will likely be coming home before the job is finished as Democrat's blindly insist. They already have Sen. John Warner, R-Va., current chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, planning an Iraq hearing for next week with top military and intelligence officials testifying. Amazing how easily Republican's cave to Democrats isn't it?
But while setting timetables may have helped Democrats win votes, they will likely have a tough time pushing their, as yet uncreated plans, through Congress. Democratic incumbents are divided on how soon to pull troops out of Iraq, and the party risks being held responsible by voters in the 2008 presidential elections if an abandoned Iraq collapses into a full-blown civil war, which is now more likely than ever due to the foreseen weakness of Democrats by the insurgent terrorists' who wanted them to win. Isn't it interesting how the media failed to cover the Muslims dancing in the streets of Iraq, Iran, the Gaza Strip and Syria when news came of a Democrat takeover of Congress?
So now we've really gone and done it. Congress has flipped along with the minds of American's. The results will be endless charades of finger pointing, indictments, and wild negative headlines that will dissolve whatever progress has been made since 2000.
But that's not all. There is now in Minnesota a first time ever elected Muslim Congressman. Now imagine the kinds of legislation he'll bring up. Get ready to hide your Bibles and start learning the Koran, which brings up the question of what will be used during the swearing in ceremonies? The Muslims may be taking over soon. The Bible belt might be outlawed as Islam likely believes it's the home of the great satan.
In the process of being marginalized in favor or European laws based on military control of the masses, America will suddenly not be the leader of the world due to the fact that the Iraq war has left America impotent, at least according to world opinion. After we leave there, the void could be far worse than when the U.S. left Iraqi's to fend for themselves after the Desert Storm war. Iran will run all over Iraq while completing their nukes to use against Israel. The Apocalypse may be coming to a screen near you, perhaps right in your home town.
As this new Democrat congress – that never had a plan to begin with – start to pull our military out of Iraq, with the terrorists' one day following behind. Expect all hell to break out as the nation falls to them. If you think there's no way that could happen, all I can say is, to study up on Islamic history and the coming Alliance of Civilizations (AOC), planned by the United Nations and European Union.
I pray that these things won't happen, but I believe we are running out of time as God seems to be removing his protective hand. Yes folks, this could be the beginning of the end of America as we've known it. We could soon see the results of this election mistake by this time next year.
The last great hope has made another critical error in putting democrats back in control of the House with socialist liberal Nancy Pelosi just a deadbeat away from the presidency, thus having played right into enemy hands. Can anyone see a Clinton/Pelosi presidential team? But more likely it will be the hyped-up Barack Obama of IL instead of Pelosi to join Clinton's '08 run. That is if we make it that far.
Osama bin Laden (if still alive) and Al Qaeda could not have asked for a nicer gift, and unfortunately this one will keep on giving in multiple terror attacks and thousands of civilian deaths across the world. Republican's are to blame for not being tough enough when it counted because they listened to the left's whining. Democrats will be even weaker and terrorism will flourish once again to our shores as they tear down the Patriot Act that has kept us terror free for the past 5 years. All that is about to change with Islamic extremists chomping at the bit, or bomb belt as it were.
Get ready folks, the terrorists' will soon be rewarded by Democrat's for killing innocent Iraqis, 3000 civilians and another 2800 American soldiers. The people have forgotten the warnings president Bush gave after 9/11/01. The Iraqi people will pay a severe price for our abandonment of them after they voted three times for democratic government. Now they will find out that democracy is only good if your so-called liberator's help you to keep it. Or if they run away (again) by letting it dissolve into a chaotic bloodbath that will make these past few years seem like a nice day in the park. It's coming, and those Republican's who voted for democrats in spite, or didn't vote at all, will have only themselves to blame for the dark future that looms.
Dread the next couple of years news as democrats mess everything up while blaming it all on Bush and Republicans. They will take credit for the economy, but only until it crashes which could be anyday now. Then they will act as if nothing has happened under their slim majorities. Although there is likely a peace coming soon, or we may be in it now, it will turn out to be false, just like everything else democrats have ever done. Afterwards, could come wars like never before.
Conservatism and Religion will come under fire with increased attacks by liberals who feel people must be open-minded, not have any values or morals, and that anything goes. If it feels good do it. Gay Marriage? Do it. Preggo from a night of hot sex with a guy you just met at the bar? No problem with government sponsored abortions. Ready to deliver that baby and change your mind? No problem, abortions anytime, perhaps even up to a year after birth to prevent women from post pardom depression licensed by this new liberal congress run by the most leftist group America has ever had, straight out of the 1960's-70's. They haven't changed their thinking at all since then either.
With the ultra-liberal Nancy Pelosi running the House, her socialist/marxist agenda will begin immediately affecting all tax payers as She and her tax loving pitbull Sen. Charlie Rangel rape the nation with massive tax hikes that will likely double what they were before the tax cuts. Remember this, democrats believe American's, especially the so-called rich, must be punished, and they will do it in spades this time for sure because they are filled with nothing but pure hatred.
It is good that their majority is so small that most of what they want cannot be got.
Dems will put forth legislation from the Alliance of Civilizations to remove God and Religion from all government using their false claim of separation of Church and State, found nowhere in the Constitution. It's already happening too... See: Calif. College bans Pledge of Allegiance.
The UN's new Alliance of Civilizations (AOC) is important because it includes new laws established within the UN's new Human Rights Council that will forbid blasphemy against the Islamic religion and their prophet, but not against Jesus and Christianity.
If Dems have their way, Churches will one day be emptied, replaced with socialistic dogma where man rules and money is worshipped. God is dead they'll all say, and many will be deceived. Then will come the great falling away as foretold in the Bible. The love of many will grow cold, then the end will come like a torrent.
When are Republican's ever going get a backbone and get tough? The Moderate wimps just kicked out of the Republican party have unfortunately created the means by which Liberal Democrat's will destroy the nation, its freedom and its citizenry by blowing away conservative principles. The left will gladly hand over control of the U.S. Military to the EU/UN world government starting in January 2007.
While Democrat's will claim to reign in global trade, they will do the opposite, as usual. Remember that NAFTA was originally started by Bill Clinton. Hillary will finish it and the door will be opened wide for all immigrants to come and live off free social security paid for by American workers. Bush is happy about it too.
According to this report, The European Union (EU) is to provide as much as 11 billion euros (14 billion U.S. dollars) to implement a European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) over the period from 2007 to 2013, it said on Tuesday.
The decision, adopted at a foreign ministers' meeting here, was a gesture to demonstrate the bloc's support for the policy.
The financing package, to start from Jan. 1, 2007, was designed to buttress the development of an area of prosperity and good neighborly relations involving both the EU and its neighboring countries and regions including Algeria, Morocco, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Moldova, Morocco, the Palestinian authority, Russia, Syria, Tunisia and Ukraine.
A press release issued at the meeting said at least 95 percent of the funds will be allocated to country and multi-country programs, and the rest will be devoted to cross-border cooperation programs.
This is just the start of things to come against Israel and America as liberals side with Israel's enemies to embrace Islam, to our eventual demise.
But first we will have a cataclysmic economic depression as Dems raise the mini-wage and kill corporate profits with many new laws. Mass layoffs will begin by the end of the year. The stock market will crash and a severe–worst ever–depression will ensue.
According to World Net Daily, The statement urged Arabs and Muslims to the Hamas military wing to...
"teach the American enemy merciless lessons they will not forget. The U.S. provides political and logistical cover for the crimes committed by the Zionist occupation, and it must be blamed for the Beit Hanoun massacres."
While the report warned of attacks against American interests in the region, some terrorism experts and senior security officials previously told WND Hamas has cells inside the U.S. technically capable of attacking within the country.
"We have information Hamas agents have been on U.S. soil the past few years and that the group may currently have up to 100 agents operating inside America," an FBI counterterrorism agent in New York told WND last October."
Terrorism expert Steve Emerson, told WND, "Hamas has an extensive infrastructure in the U.S., mostly revolving around the activities of fundraising, recruiting and training members, directing operations against Israel, organizing political support and operating through human-rights front groups. While Hamas has not acted outside Israel, it has the capability of carrying out attacks in America if it decided to enlarge the scope of its operations.""
Iran is close to having their nukes, as is North Korea. Russia and China have sided with Iran and Syria against America and Israel. The world could soon be in total chaos, and America may be the last great empire to fall.
Ok, having gotten it all out now, I'll leave you with this... Despite whatever direction we're headed, for those who possess it, your faith must not be shaken. For those who don't, and are living for this world, you're on your own, but our prayers are with you.
God Bless America.

Voting for Spite?
Will anti-incumbent sentiment doom America?
Yeah, OK, the GOP over spent, took too long on securing the borders. But the deficit has been cut in half, unemployment is practically nil, and the stock market is on solid ground, and we have a war to win, not run away from as Islamic radicals want, which is why they want democrats to win.
The office with the most power over the federal budget is The House Ways and Means Committee, which would be chaired by New York Democrat Charlie Rangel--who has already warned, "You've got to be able to pay for the war, don't you?" He means they will raise taxes as high as possible to pay for the war even though that would reverse the revenues going into the government. We must always remember that Democrats are backwards, in believing the people work for the government.
Claiming that jobs have disappeared, Democrats are challenging Bush's trade policies to create more jobs here at home. But the unemployment report released just last week was 4.4 percent, down from 4.6 previously. Clearly the Bush administration policies are working for America. See stats and info below that the liberal media buries.
Republican National Committee spokesman Josh Holmes said Democrats hold an "increasingly isolationist view" and that Republicans believe free trade creates more jobs for Americans, especially higher paying jobs.
So Democrats want to change the policies that are working, to make the economy worse so American's will suffer more, the exact opposite of what they claim.
Indeed, terrorists' everywhere are hoping for a Democrat takeover of congress. Leaders of terrorist organizations such as Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and Islamic Jihad know that if Democrats win, so do they. They know full well who the cut and run party of appeasement is, and they are telling all Muslims in the U.S. to vote for Democrats. Many Muslims are very media savvy, and are now employed in major media outlets, creating anti-American propaganda geared toward ripping the very fabric of our nation. See: Democrats: 'No comment'on terrorists' endorsement
For all those who insist that the war is lost now, they haven't seen anything yet to how bad things will be for the people right here in America if we make the mistake terrorists' are waiting for. Terrorists' will gladly turn this country into what Iraq looks like now, and Democrat's will do nothing to stop them because they feel American's deserve punishment. Due to their incessant hatred of George W. Bush, they will start an era of darkness by calling for investigations and then his impeachment, thus falling into enemy hands. Democrats will waste much time trying to debate these enemies even while they are cutting the heads off of innocent civilians all over the world by the thousands.
Democrats clearly do not understand the Islamic enemy. I read in a recent news article that a group of young Islamic men did just that to a 14 year old Armenian Christian boy after questioning him. They knocked him down and held him while they cut his head off. Democrats and their liberal puppets do not understand that we are in a clash of civilizations. Democrats will side with Muslims against Israel, exactly like they did with Yasser Arafat during the Oslo talks failure that led directly to the Palestinian Intifada, murdering of hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians in bus bombings. His successor may be more cunning and evil having learned from the terror master himself. Of course Clinton was no match for Arafat, who was no match for Bush.
This is what they want to do to all Americans and anyone who doesn't convert to Islam. Democrats will not stop them, in fact the liberal media will endorse the Islamic faith over Christianity. They are setting up for that now by bashing and making a mockery of traditional marriage, religion and morality on network programs in favor of homosexuals, gambling, drugs and violence while making Money their true god to be desired overall. Most on the left have no compunction for the damage they are doing to this country, and by the time they realize what's happened, it will be far too late to do anything about it. This in a nut shell, is why Iranian president Mahmoud Amadinejad is so confident of his plans to defy the "international community." He understand that America is being hamstrung by world opinion.
Will Republican voters who vote for democrats in spite, accept the consequences when things get worse? Or will they blame it all on Bush as justification for abandoning the GOP? This would make them no better than liberals who hate everything America stands for.
The Democrats are consistently campaigning on policies that would lead to a disastrous defeat, not just in Iraq, but in the entire War on Terrorism, from Lebanon to Afghanistan.
Howard Dean called Bush the most incompetent president ever while wearing an American flag lapel pin upside down. This clearly proves democrats are against defending the nation and it is they who are indeed upside down and going crazy.
What if dems win one or both chambers? The war will most likely be lost with all the sacrifice, humanly and monetarily as well. Then when America falls – which it surely will – as no one will ever trust us again – who will the nations look to for help?
If you said Europe, guess again. Muslims are already over taking most of those countries, fast becoming the majority. The UN? Not on your life!
If you vote for Democrats, you may as well tell your kids to start learning the Koran if their school hasn't been teaching it already, like some in California are doing now.
In this critical election, America may be at a crossroad for its own existence, and if you think that's hyperbole, it's not. In fact it is probably more mild than what may be coming under liberal leadership.
So if you think you're going to teach a lesson by voting against incumbents, read below....
The following from Human Events Online show how Bush and the GOP have governed.
Job Creation Continues – More Than 6.8 Million Jobs Created Since August 2003
Today, The Government Released New Jobs Figures – 92,000 Jobs Created In October. The unemployment rate decreased to 4.4 percent, the lowest rate since May 2001. Payrolls have now increased 470,000 over the past 3 months and more than 1.9 million over the past 12 months. Since August 2003, more than 6.8 million jobs have been created − more jobs than all the other major industrialized countries combined. Our economy has now added jobs for 38 straight months.
The American Economy Remains Strong And Continues To Grow
• Real Wages Grew 2.4 Percent Over The Past 12 Months. This means an extra $755 for the average full-time production worker or about $1,327 for the typical family of four with two wage earners.
• Real After-Tax Income Per Person Has Risen By 9.8 Percent – $2,660 – Since The President Took Office.
• Our Economy Has Grown A Solid 2.9 Percent Over The Past Four Quarters – Faster Than Any Other Major Industrialized Country.
• Productivity Has Grown At An Annual Rate Of 3 Percent Since The First Quarter Of 2001, Up From A 2.4 Percent Annual Rate During The Preceding Five Years.
• Gas Prices Have Fallen Almost 82 Cents A Gallon Since Early August.
• Employment Has Increased In All But One State Over The Past 12 Months Ending In September.
The Economic Outlook Remains Positive
The President's Tax Cuts Have Helped Our Economy Grow Faster Than Any Other Major Developed Nation. President Bush worked with Congress to cut taxes for everyone who pays income taxes, double the child tax credit, reduce the marriage penalty, substantially cut taxes on small businesses, cut taxes on capital gains and dividends to encourage investment and jobs, and put the death tax on the road to extinction. To keep our economy growing, the President and Republicans in Congress want to make these tax cuts permanent, leaving more money in the hands of American workers, families, and businesses.
Recent Paycheck Growth Increases Have Been Larger Than Those In The 1990s Economic Expansion, Compared Either Over The Past Year Or For The Entire Business Cycle. Real hourly wages for production and non-supervisory workers have increased 2.4 percent in the past 12 months, and broader measures, such as disposable income per capita and hourly compensation, show even larger increases. Falling energy prices helped boost real wages by 1.0 percent in September alone – the largest increase in more than 30 years.
The Deficit Has Been Cut In Half Three Years Ahead Of Schedule. A strong economy has led to historic revenue growth. FY05 revenues were the largest in history, and the FY06 budget deficit was $248 billion, down from an original February projection of $423 billion and lower than 18 of the last 25 years as a percentage of our economy.
The President Has An Aggressive Agenda To Lower The Costs Of Health Care And Energy
The President's Policies Are Helping Make Health Care More Affordable And Accessible. The President worked with Congress to create the Medicare Prescription Drug benefit and initiated reform that is speeding cheaper generic drugs to market. The President has proposed expanding Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and creating Association Health Plans (AHPs) to allow small businesses to band together to buy cheaper insurance.
The President Is Working To Break America's Addiction To Oil And Develop New Sources Of Reliable, Domestic Energy. The President wants to fund new technology to create new sources of fuel, build a reliable domestic supply of alternative fuels, develop new domestic energy resources, and increase conservation. The President is also encouraging the research and development of clean-coal technologies and expanding the safe use of clean, affordable nuclear power.

Kerry's Phony Apology
After pompously blaring on Tuesday, "I will apologize to no one," John Kerry has flipped again by belatedly succumbing (kinda) to demands from his party who are bailing on him one by one, and most of the country to make an apology for his comments against our military personnel.
In 1972, as Kerry ran for the House, he was less apologetic in his comments about the merits of a volunteer army. He declared in the questionnaire that he opposed the draft but considered a volunteer army "a greater anathema."
"I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown," . "We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply 'doing its job.'
"Equally as important, a volunteer army with our present constitutional crisis takes accountability away from the president and put the people further from control over military activities,"
Obviously Kerry hasn't changed since then, and still believes what he said in 1972. How can any man be so wrong, especially a U.S. senator?
Clearly Kerry needs to be removed from public service as all he's ever done is more harm than good, since being stuck in Nam. He's still stuck there.
Democratic candidates joined Republicans Wednesday in pressing John Kerry to apologize for a comment critics said appeared disrespectful of U.S. troops as several Kerry campaign appearances were canceled.
"Whatever the intent, Senator Kerry was wrong to say what he said," said Democratic Rep. Harold Ford Jr., running for Senate in Tennessee.
In trying desperately to contain the damage, Kerry campaign appearances in Iowa, Minnesota and Pennsylvania were canceled, and rightfully so.
On his web site, Democrat Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts said in a blog entry:
"As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop."
Kerry's statement about having to be stupid to go into the military, was clearly not a joke. He believes it to his core because that's where he is from, when those drafted for Vietnam were not College students.
Most lefty's wouldn't be able to cut it in the military these days because you have to be smart, and much smarter than any damn liberal, especially John F'up Kerry!
"I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended."
So you see, he didn't actually apologize to anyone for his comments, as he said he would not. He simply said he "regretted" that his words were 'misinterpreted,' in the same slimey way Bill Clinton did when he lied to the court, and to the nation about his Monica Lewinsky scandalous affair. Nobody misinterpreted his words. Kerry said exactly what he believes.
The media is calling this an apology. Clearly Democrat arrogance knows no bounds.
"Sen. Kerry's remarks were poorly worded and just plain stupid," said Montana Senate President Jon Tester, a Democrat trying to unseat GOP Sen. Conrad Burns. "He owes our troops and their families an apology."
Now just imagine if a Republican made the same so-called "joke" that John Kerry made. The media would go absolutely ballistic and would never let him get off this easily. In fact they'd keep it going for weeks on end like they just did with the Foley thing. At least Foley immediately stepped down, unlike John Kerry who of course is too good for that!
Kerry lied to congress during Vietnam for the leftist appeasers, and they love him for it. Kerry committed war crimes in Nam by his own admission in testimony, and the left continues to love him for it. Perhaps the military shouldn't protect them. After all, whose side are they really on? In fact, let's see if the libs can make utopia happen on their own, shall we?
I propose we offer all the liberals their own state, give them Massachusetts where they can live under the rule of Kings Teddy Kennedy and John Kerry, and then strip it of all protection from the Military by allowing anyone in, including Islamic Muslims, but no one out. For all their whining about the president, military and war effort, we'll see how long they'll be able to last. Any takers? Leave a comment.
Democrat Triple Standards
Why was Republican Senate Minority Leader Trent Lott forced to step down after his past comment about Strom Thurmond during a retirement party, and Kerry gets off easy for his far-worse comments about our troops in the middle of a war? Who does he think he is? Oh, that's right, he served three months in the military, shot himself and got some purple hearts to get out. How could I forget?
The double, sometimes triple standards of the left are enough to drive the rest of us batty. They like to think nobody notices, then wonder why they keep losing.
The outcome from all this is likely to be the same as in 2000, when Voters rejected Clinton's false apology and voted for Bush instead of Gore.
Hillary Clinton called Kerry's soldier insinuation "inappropriate," which doesn't even make sense.
"If it was a botched joke, someone show me the punch line. I don't see how it was funny," Perino said. "I don't know how ... anybody could have taken them any other way."
I don't see it either, and only Kerry's apologizers have the audacity to spin it. Kerry thinks he's going to run in '08? I don't think so! He should be forced out now! But dems aren't that smart.
