Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
Senate Democrats on Thursday rejected a GOP attempt to require next year's census forms to include a question about citizenship status -- an effort opponents called anti-immigrant.
The proposal by Republican Sens. David Vitter of Louisiana and Robert Bennett of Utah was aimed at excluding non-citizens from the population totals that are used to figure the number of congressional representatives for each state.
But the Vitter plan fell after a 60-39 procedural vote made it ineligible for inclusion in a bill funding the census.
There you have it folks the 60 votes on strict Party lines are all about Power and Greed, they don't care SQUAT about Congress reflecting the desire of American CITIZENS.
Call your Senators and thank them for standing up for you and your Family, or Not as the Case may be,
And after this year we can remember it as the Day that ACORN like a Resurrected Zombie, re qualified for Federal Funding.
Did you like me, cheer when you heard that BOTH Republicans AND Democrats in Congress voted to suspend Federal Funding of ACORN?
The suspension was only good up to October 31st.
Yes on El Dia de los Muertos ACORN will be once again eligible for Federal Funding
I suspect some members of Congress did not have the courage to vote their true convictions and so created this stop gap measure in the hopes that after a whole month the Public would not notice it when they reinstated business as usual.
If you substitute the word ACORN for ACLU in this video you will have a fairly accurate of our present dilemma.
Three weeks the number one book on the New York Times Best Seller List and they don't seem to be interested in reviewing it?
Sounds like my kind of Book
A Personal Message from Michelle Malkin
I'm so proud to announce that my new book, Culture of Corruption, is #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for the second consecutive week!
If you haven't read it yet, let me give you just a little taste:
Phew. Janitors in newsrooms across America worked overtime in the halcyon days after Barack Obama won the presidency. It wasn't easy cleaning the drool off laptops and floors in the offices of journalists everywhere. New York Times columnist David Brooks praised Team Obama's "postpartisan rhetoric" and "practical creativity." AwestruckGood Morning Americaanchor Robin Roberts echoed the conventional wisdom: "Some would say it's a team of rivals, Ã la President Lincoln, or is a better comparison a team of geniuses as FDR did?"
I wrote this book to give you the exhaustive answer that President Obama's gyrating media harem doesn't want you to read.
Obama's team is a dysfunctional and dangerous group of business-as-usual cronies. The corruption stretches from wealthy power brokers Rahm Emanuel and Valerie Jarrett, to pay-to-play-tainted Michelle Obama and Joe Biden, to ethically challenged, bailout-bungling money men Larry Summers and Tim Geithner at Treasury, crime-coddling corporate lawyer Eric Holder at DOJ, to the crooked Service Employees International Union, and the ever-expanding swamp of Washington lobbyists.
This book pulls together the familiar and not-so-familiar pieces to force Obama hagiographers to confront an alternate narrative. A reality-based narrative. A narrative of incompetence, nepotism, influence-peddling, and self-dealing that defies the stubborn myth that Barack Obama is the One True Agent of Hope and Change.
In short: This is a government of the crony, by the lobbyist, and for all the well-heeled, well-connected people Barack Obama spent his entire campaign demonizing.
In the era of "new politics," judge him as you would judge other mere mortals. Judge him not by the company that preceded him. Judge him by the company he keeps.

For one supposedly dedicated to bringing parties together for health care reform, President Barack Obama shows unremitting hostility toward one of them: the health insurance industry.
In practically every speech he gives or town hall he hosts, there's a slam at insurance profits and methods - and no recognition of the role its lobby, America's Health Insurance Plans, has taken to advance reform.

I saw only handmade signs by the Anti-Administration Health Care Plan, and while I did see ONE handmade Pro Plan sign the rest were Mass Produced,
So who are the Astroturfers?
During the meeting there was a heated conversation between a couple sitting beside me and a woman on the row below us, When the man exclaimed " YOU want People to die in the streets" I jumped in with the statement that NO ONE in America is denied essential medical care due to lack of insurance or ability to pay, He backed down because he knew that was true.
While there I heard my Congressman making light of the idea that Death Panels would be enacted, and claiming that what had folks upset was merely a provision to have health professionals help patients with End of Life Decisions.
My Friends Death Panels are ALREADY in action in this Country and they actually are helping patients with End of Life Decisions.,
Patients who are DENIED treatment are helped to enter Assisted Suicide Programs
In Oregon, One of the States whose program is pointed to as a Model for the proposed National Plan
The Oregon Health Plan, more or less a real-world model of ObamaCare, is under tremendous pressure to cut costs. They have found a unique way of doing so: They no longer pay for life-saving chemotherapy for cancer patients with less than a 5% chance of survival for five years... but they will pay to help kill them:
Barbara Wagner has one wish - for more time.
"I'm not ready, I'm not ready to die," the Springfield woman said. "I've got things I'd still like to do."
Her doctor offered hope in the new chemotherapy drug Tarceva, but the Oregon Health Plan sent her a letter telling her the cancer treatment was not approved.
Instead, the letter said, the plan would pay for comfort care, including "physician aid in dying," better known as assisted suicide.
"I told them, I said, 'Who do you guys think you are?' You know, to say that you'll pay for my dying, but you won't pay to help me possibly live longer?' " Wagner said. [Hat tip to Sachi]
So... under government medicine, Barack H. Obama's grandmother shouldn't get a hip replacement, because she's going to die soon anyway; Sarah Palin's son Trig, who has Down Syndrome, wouldn't get long-term treatment because Down is incurable; and Barbara Wagner begs for cancer treatment -- and instead gets a not-so-subtle hint that she should contact a physician about how to "reduce the surplus population" by committing suicide.
There is really no nice way to spin this.
Yes there will be NO Death Panels who will deny an individual patient treatment, just Criteria which will do the same thing.
BUT they will offer them a Painless Easy Death.
I wonder will they also have showers for Undesirables?
Yes such a wonderful program we Taxpayers will get to fund
