You Thought It Was YOUR Money?
Topic: Demo Fables
It's not that he wants to punish our success,

it's just that he can't give our money away,

if he let's us keep it.

He just doesn't have any choice
since he wants to "spread the wealth around"

What Crisis?
Topic: Demo Fables
What Crisis? There's no Crisis looming.
The mean spirited Republicans just want to scare people,

Because they don't want lower income families being able to afford to own their own homes.
Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis.

At a 2004 hearing see Democrat after Democrat covering up and attacking the regulations to protect Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (their Cash Cows) that are now destroying our economy because the Democrats let them cheat.

And after 4 years have come and gone,  after all that was warned has come to pass. It seems everything is still the fault of the Mean spirited Republicans.

If you want to see a perfect example of bi-partisan spirit,
if you wish to see how this country can end division, be unified,
listen and read the words of Speaker of the House Pelosi
This is the prepared text of the speech which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi read on the House floor on Monday, September 29, 2008 concerning the $700 billion bailout proposal from the Bush Administration ahead of the House vote.

Addition to text in actual speech, according to the Chicago Tribune:

"For too long this government, eight years, has followed a right-wing ideology of anything goes, no supervision, no discipline, no regulation."

I was particularly impressed at all the credit Pelosi gave to Franks.  Why she was almost as enthusiastic about him, as Maxine Waters was of Frank Raines back in 2004.

If This Is Tuesday
Topic: Demo Fables
There used to be a joke about European multi-city vacation tours that went something like :

If this is Tuesday, this must be Rome.

Politicians suffer under a similiar burden of confusion.

Joe Biden, for instance must have to check his scheduler to be reminded that

If this is Tuesday, I SUPPORT Clean Coal.

It is much simpler for normal Americans, we have core values and know what we do or do not believe in and those beliefs are not altered by crossing State borders,  for instance from Ohio to Pennsylvania.

Campaigning in Pennsylvania coal country on Thursday, the Democratic vice presidential nominee said the government should steer more money to clean coal — a term used to describe a variety of emerging technologies that burn coal for electricity without producing as much pollution.

“I am for clean coal,” he told The Associated Press following a speech in Wilkes-Barre…

The Delaware senator was working a rope line in Maumee, Ohio, on Sept. 17 when a voter asserted that wind and solar energy were “flourishing” in Ohio and then asked Biden why he supported clean coal.

“We’re not supporting clean coal,” Biden replied, putting his hands on the woman’s shoulders. “Guess what? China’s building two every week, two dirty coal plants, and it’s polluting the United States. It’s causing people to die.”

I think the Coal Miner says it all

The Coal Miner

You Can Fool All Of The People
Topic: Demo Fables

Abraham Lincoln said: "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."

There a Lies and there are Lies that transcend to the level of Art,

Recently there has been an excellent example a Lie that contains nothing but the truth. What you will see in the Video was actually spoken, but as you will also see the "meaning" of what was said has been altered by creative editing.

Please View

Rep. Roy Blunt:

McCain stopped the bailout deal

"Clearly, yesterday, his position on that discussion yesterday was one that stopped a deal from finalizing ."
Now that does sound like he (John McCain) jumped right into  a Congressional Deal and brought it to a screeching halt and there may be some truth in that.  However a 9 second cut, might leave some important
things out so, let us look at a longer and more complete version?

Rep. Roy Blunt

Says Democrats Are Uncooperative On Bailout

Ah there are a few words left out?
"Clearly, yesterday, his position on that discussion yesterday was one that stopped a deal from finalizing
that no House Republican in my view would have been for, which means it wouldn't have probably passed the House. "
I don't know what other's might think, but to me what was left out makes a profound difference,
They say the Best Way to Lie is to Tell the Truth, but Selectively. This appears to be a perfect example of that art.

Obama Outsourcing
Topic: Demo Fables
 Update: Not all the work is being outsourced.
"When they got in touch with the Democrats the party jumped at the chance. And the coins have proved such a hit that locally produced versions have already been launched to compete with the UK originals"
Just caught this on Hot Air
 Democrats already minting Obama presidential commemorative coin
Now it refers to this article in a Birmingham Newspaper
Birmingham firm strikes Barack Obama presidential coin
Intricate work on the Barack Obama coin

A company in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter is making commemorative coins for American presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

And if the Democratic candidate is elected to become the most powerful man in the world on November 4, it could open the floodgates for millions of pounds worth of business for the firm.

Windsor, Elizabeth & Windsor has already sold more than 300 limited edition commemorative silver coins to the Democratic Party to hand out to key members of the campaign to elect Obama.

The contract is worth about £100,000 to the company, based on Warstone Lane, Hockley.

And a spokesman for WEW said they expected thousands more coins to be bought if Obama becomes president, which could bring millions into the small firm.

WEW is producing limited edition runs of gold, silver and platinum Obama coins, and plans to produce new ones in other finishes for public consumption if the demand emerges.

The Barack Obama coin

The coins already sold to the Democrats will be presented to the senators, congressmen, governors and other politicians they are being given to within the next two weeks.

There will also be a television advertising campaign launched in the US.

Now of course there has been a lot of comment that this is premature, but what stuck out to me was this,

The contract is worth about £100,000 to the company, based on Warstone Lane, Hockley.

Yep this Newspaper is NOT in Alabama, it is in Great Britain !

The Obama Campaign is OUTSOURCING  this job,

 

Now this comes right on the heels of a statement by Joe Biden that

We’re not supporting clean coal” and “No coal plants here in America” —

Someone should ask the leadership of the UMW for a statement on that position.

However the Obama campaign and a Biden spokesperson have already done one of this, "We were against it before we supported it now" DNC flipflops we are all so familiar with.

 Video: On clean coal, Biden takes bold stand against, um, Obama’s position; Update: McCain launches coalition to protect coal jobs

Boy I tell your what these guys sure stand behind the American Worker don't they?

Maybe Union members should keep their backs up against the Wall when they are around though.

Just Pull the D Lever
Topic: Demo Fables
A few nights ago, I was watching a discussion on CNN of all places (Not Fox) about the increases in Oil Prices, Drilling in our Off Shore Fields, ANWAR, the Coal Tar and Shale Oil Deposits out West and Liquification of Coal.

During the portion on Drilling off shore, a Democratic Strategist with a smirky smile pronounced in a self satisfied manner that drilling off shore would not lower the price at the pumps but would only increase the profits of



BIG OIL

I have been thinking

Do I want my hard earned money to increase the profits of some Filthy Capitalistic Greedy Big Oil Compay?

H&*L NO!

I want MY hard earned money to

increase the profits of some Greedy Dictatorship,

Fund Totalitaran Oppression,

Islamofacism,

and Interntational Terrorism BY GOD!!!!

Just think

Without the valiant efforts of some in Congress to stem the tide
towards Energy Independence for the US

My Hard Earned Money might actually go to

Create Jobs for Americans

Reduce the National Trade Deficit

Increase US Tax Revenues

Elimiate our need for MidEast Oil

and lighten the load for Working Families?

Now we just can't have that can we?


So if YOU do not want your hard earned money to
end up in the coffers of some American Big Oil Company

Rather than in the Hands of those who

Truly Hate us, Desire to Destroy Our Way of Life
and see All of Us Dead?

Then you have only ONE choice.

This November march right into that voting booth and


Pull the D is for "Death to America!" Lever!!!!!!!!!!
Or if you have other opinions you might want to listen to this

You Knew What I Was When You Picked Me Up
Topic: Demo Fables

My good friend Buster Block over at Inmuscatine sent me a thought provoking request yesterday

I need some help on a story about Hillary Clinton ceding powers if elected President. She said : > "Other presidents like Lincoln have had to take on extraordinary > powers but would later go to the Congress for either ratification > or rejection." > > She continued: "There were a lot of actions which they took that > were clearly beyond any power the Congress would have granted or > that in my view that was inherent in the constitution. There were > other actions they've taken which could have obtained congressional > authorization but they deliberately chose not to pursue it as a > matter of principle." > > Here I asked whether a sitting president, once invested with such > powers, could really give some of them up in the name of > constitutional principle. Clinton said: "Oh, absolutely, Michael. I > mean that has to be part of the review that I undertake when I get > to the White House, and I intend to do that." > I simply do not have time to do the research necessary to do this justice, but I know this is right up your alley. Do you feel like a cross-post with me if you can shed some light on this? Oh, and by the way - the MSM is ignoring this completely, so we have to do something about it.

My first reaction was that the concept of a Clinton ceding power boggles the mind and I should form a new topic for Demo Fables and put this in with:

 

And then the Evil Republicans huffed and puffed and blew the poor people's houses down.

 

or 

 

Evil Republican Magis influencing voters with mind control 

But why don't we explore this issue and then go over to Buster at Inmuscatine and see what his take on it is?

 

Here are the pertinent URLs

'I'm going to have to review everything they've done'

Clinton vows review of executive power

'You can't lump all terrorists together'

and

Clinton says would cede some presidential powers

 It is very easy for a politician to make claims, lets look at one of them

"Well, I think it is clear that the power grab undertaken by the Bush-Cheney administration has gone much further than any other president and has been sustained for longer," Clinton said.

So what power grabs could she be speaking of and has Bush indeed pushed the envelope further than any other president

 

Well one issue that comes to mind is waging War against a Non-State Association of Muslim Terrorists without a Declaration of War. Further complaints on this issue have been worded "How can you declare War on an entity that is not a State?"

It turns out the Nation has faced this very same issue in the Past. As a matter of fact the very first Land Military action by the United States after the Revolutionary War was against a Non-State Association of Muslim Terrorists named the Barbary Pirates.

Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and the Congress of the Day discussed whether or not it was necessary to issue a Formal Declaration of War and decided that since our Sovereignty, and our Citizens had been attacked we were in fact in a State of War and while a Formal Declaration might be needed to initiate a War the point was moot.  So Jefferson sent in the Marines to deal with the matter.

 Notice that they did not even discuss whether or not they should respond militarily??

 

What other Presidents have exceeded their Constitutional Powers?  Well when Andrew Jackson decided to move the Cherokee Nation upon being told that the Supreme Court had denied him that power, replied "John Marshall has made his decision; let him enforce it now if he can"

 

I don't recall Bush ever going to that extreme, but I do recall Dick Gephardt telling Rainbow Push after the Surpreme Court issued a ruling he and they did not agree with that

When I'm president, we'll do executive orders to overcome any wrong thing the Supreme Court does tomorrow or any other day.

But maybe that does not count, because he was never nominated, much less elected thank God.

Mention was made of Lincoln.

 "Other presidents, like Lincoln, have had to take on extraordinary powers but would later go to Congress for either ratification or rejection

Could she have been referring to Lincoln's suspension of Habeas Corpus?

With Congress not in session until July, Lincoln assumed all powers not delegated in the Constitution, including the power to suspend habeas corpus. In 1861, Lincoln had already suspended civil law in territories where resistance to the North's military power would be dangerous. In 1862, when copperhead democrats began criticizing Lincoln's violation of the Constitution, Lincoln suspended habeas corpus throughout the nation and had many copperhead democrats arrested under military authority because he felt that the State Courts in the north west would not convict war protesters such as the copperheads. He proclaimed that all persons who discouraged enlistments or engaged in disloyal practices would come under Martial Law. 

Among the 13,000 people arrested under martial law was a Maryland Secessionist, John Merryman. Immediately, Hon. Roger B. Taney, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States issued a writ of habeas corpus commanding the military to bring Merryman before him. The military refused to follow the writ. Justice Taney, in Ex parte MERRYMAN, then ruled the suspension of habeas corpus unconstitutional because the writ could not be suspended without an Act of Congress. President Lincoln and the military ignored Justice Taney's ruling. 

Now here is an interesting factoid about the above suspension

Finally, in 1866, after the war, the Supreme Court officially restored habeas corpus in Ex-parte Milligan, ruling that military trials in areas where the civil courts were capable of functioning were illegal.

April 9, 1865 - Gen. Robert E. Lee surrenders

April 15, 1865 - President Abraham Lincoln dies

Notice habeous corpus was not reinstated until long after the War was over and Lincoln was dead?

There may be some mutterings about Gitmo, but there are NOT thousand of War Protestors in prison camps and none of them have been sentenced to be executed.

FDR had his camps too,  Japanese, Italian, Germnan-Americans many of them citizens interred.

I will not debate here whether it was Constitutional I just wish to point our that the statement

"The power grab undertaken by the Bush-Cheney administration has gone much further than any other president and has been sustained for longer," she said. "Other presidents, like Lincoln, have had to take on extraordinary powers but would later go to Congress for either ratification or rejection."

Would be ideal to plow into the ground to inspire turnips.

What I, myself find most interesting is that in responce to this question

 I want to start with some questions about foreign policy and terrorism. If you become president you'll enter the White House with far more power than, say, your husband had. What is your view of this? And what specific powers might you relinquish as president, or renegotiate with Congress - for example the power to declare a US citizen an enemy combatant

 She replied

Well, I think it is clear that the power grab undertaken by the Bush-Cheney administration has gone much further than any other president and has been sustained for longer. Other presidents, like Lincoln, have had to take on extraordinary powers but would later go to the Congress for either ratification or rejection. But when you take the view that they're not extraordinary powers, but they're inherent powers that reside in the office and therefore you have neither obligation to request permission nor to ask for ratification, we're in a new territory here. And I think that I'm gonna have to review everything they've done because I've been on the receiving end of that. There were a lot of actions which they took that were clearly beyond any power the Congress would have granted or that in my view that was inherent in the constitution. There were other actions they've taken which could have obtained congressional authorization but they deliberately chose not to pursue it as a matter of principle

 

Some one point out to me where in the above she responds to what specific powers might you relinquish as president, or renegotiate with Congress????

 

As far as I can tell she definitely said she would review Presidential Powers but she is real shy about what she want to get rid of.

As to her desire for Power itself?  Is not one of her major campaign planks a plant to Nationalise an Industry that comprises 1/7th of the US Economy?

Now that is what I call a Power Grab. I would like someone to show me where in the Constitution the Federal Govenment has the right to do that?

There is an old Fable that goes

  ”It was really cold and a nice lady had a warm blanket. A poisonous snake nearby was shivering and begged the lady just to pick him up long enough for him to get warm. She resisted saying "you are a poisonous snake and you will bite me and I'll die!" He begged and pleaded and promised not to bite her so she finally gave in and picked him up and wrapped him in the blanket. He bit her and as she was laying there dying she asked "why did you bite me - you promised you wouldn't?" As he slithered away he looked back and said: "Lady you knew I was a snake when you picked me up

THE LADY AND THE SNAKE

 

I submit that before we pick up this viper and hold it to our breast, we need to think real on what we know about it.

 

Now let's see what Buster;s take is over at Inmuscatine
