Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) told a group of Democratic moderates on Tuesday that an ethics and lobbying reform bill being pushed by party leaders was "total crap," but said that he would work to enact the legislation because Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) supports it.

But we already knew that!

That's one thing wrong with Washington, they believe ethics are total crap. They forget the citizens do not believe the same.

nanc said...

snortin' in nancy's flanks i'd say - wonder what he'll have to say tomorrow?!?

Anonymous said...

nanc said...

this sounds like warren's kind of town:

thank you ben - we had some good winds here - the east didn't fare as well as we.

nanc said...

i cannot find our site meter...i need to test my theory...and all that's been tested is my's all good.

Warren said...

Very bottom of the linked comment page or the main page. Click on the very small icon.

Warren said...

The icon doesn't show on the "make a comment" page.

nanc said...

thank you, warren - are we under reconstruction?

Warren said...

The views from searches won't show up for a while, not until the search engine "web crawlers", robots, have time to find them and list them in the search engine data base.

Warren said...

"are we under reconstruction?"

No, its always been there. Since it isn't plainly visible, it helps keep trolls from nosing about.

nanc said...

thank you and good morning, warren.

I said to my wife earlier, "The whole Reagan era is ended, the maniacs are finally out, even Milton Freidman died, the nightmare that began in the seventies is FINALLY over'.

And I really believe it is. Even if the Republicans took over again in 2008, it won't be anything like it was. Nobody is going to back the insanity of "tax cuts for more income" again, nobody is going to push for 'more money for the rich" while the middle class is still flat and out, nobody is going to pull any of the shit that was trickled down so slowly until Bush decided to simply dump the whole outhouse on our collective heads all at once.

No new military adventures, the US military will be rebuilding for YEARS to undo the damage this bunch of cranks have done.

And no matter who is in Congress or the White House, the energy mess will be on the table, the wage problem will be on the table, the carbon emissions will be tied to the energy solutions, and it will all be addressed in some way - maybe not a way we'll all like or prefer, but these matters actually will be a national priority, not shuffled off to the side while a chorus of trained seals bark out "junk science, junk science, junk science".

I'll bet that very phrase has seen the end of its life.

Limbaugh saw all this the very day of the election. Of course he isn't going to "carry water" any longer, the team broke up and disbanded, he's got nobody to carry water for!

It's over. Screw the Congressional infighting over how many days longer to stay in Iraq, THE NIGHTMARE IS OVER!!

Have a drink to celebrate, Christmas came early this year! Go have some fun and quit worrying.


nanc said...

plucky - you'd best hope our men and women will be so willing to serve under the draft your side is preparing to institute. yup - i understand these people you look up to are all for it:

"Last year, a bill (HR163) to re-
instate the military draft was introduced in Congress by New York Democrat Charles Rangel, and five
of his Democrat colleagues:

Jim McDermott of Washington
John Conyers, Jr. of Michigan
John Lewis of Georgia
Fortney "Pete" Stark of California, and
Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii."

check this site out:

all dhimmitwittedcrats, plucky - seems i hear a quacking noise coming out your hiney!

Brooke said...

What is he, 74 years old?

Time to retire, dude...

Nee said...

nanc-send me an e-mail if you can, need to discuss sumpin

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Sometimes I think the highest extent of Ducky's economics training is from eating blotter acid printed with Thomas Nast cartoons. Not exactly moving the needle on a competency meter.

Here's some benchmarks to measure and compare the effect of Washington's recent stupidity transfusion on October 1st, 2007, when whatever budgetary policies the Democrats shape next year begin to take effect:

We've got 4.4% unemployment (aka 95.6% employment)
The Dow is over 12,000
Gasoline is roughly $2 per gallon

Perhaps in two incomes add up to $50K a year households in Milford, Massachussetts where the Man keeps Ducky down by not letting him put ramen noodles on layaway the economy is bad, but the rest of the country doesn't seem to notice.

nanc said...

plucky's probably upset they didn't raise the minimum wage to $20/hour at burger king - where he's head whopper.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

That's not Burger King. Ain't a damn drop of Louisiana hot sauce in the place. That's "Ground Beef Sandwich King."

Ducky's just upset because his family took up graverobbing so the kids could have hand-me-downs.

Elmer's Brother said...

Being the head whopper has it's which brown polyester pants to wear today and whether or not to take the dumpster diving leftovers to his pal Castro. That pudding is getting old...even Raoul said so.

Share the leftovers Dukkky...the People living in the workers paradise demand it.

nanc said...

WARREN? have you read this:

Warren said...

No, but it wasn't exactly difficult to figure out on my own :^(

If GWB goes along with this, he's a fool!

nanc said...

warren - if the democrats succeed with this:

my son will fall into the right age group at just about the right time! Lord, help u.s. all.

Warren said...

Don't worry about it Nanc.

I can't see it happening for a whole host of reasons.

Republicans won't go along because a volunter Army is a professional Army and better for the country and the military. The Democrat base would eat their politicians alive if they tried it.

Universal conscription, in the Swiss model, might be a very good thing for citizenship and our country. Especially if those that refuse to serve (not including the disabled) or didn't finish a manditory term were denied government jobs or the right to vote.

nanc said...

warren - i wouldn't mind living in a country like israel where EVERYONE is a soldier - there is always a reason to be a soldier when it's put that way. i don't know how i feel about my son or any of my nephews serving a government who hates them. demoncrats. i do have a feeling we'll all be soldiers before long, however - whether we like it or not.

Warren said...

There is nothing more honorable than being despised for doing the right thing.

The military scares the crap out of leftists anyway. They would do everything in their power to stop it.

The citizen soldier is the way to go.

nanc said...

we are already citizen soldiers.

he's my only son.

you have an only son also.

thank the Lord their hearts are in the right place whatever may come.

goodnight warren.

Warren said...

Don't fret your purdy head about it none.

I know its a mothers job to worry, heck, you should have seen mine cry! My dad told me that every time she went in my room she cried.

It ain't going to happen:

October 4, 2004
" WASHINGTON — Seeking to dispel suggestions that the war in Iraq could lead to reinstatement of the draft, House Republicans on Tuesday hastily brought the idea to a vote — with the express intent of shooting it down.

The vote, launched with only hours of notice and no public hearings, was designed to put an end to talk that President Bush’s foreign policy could overtax the all-volunteer Army that has been national policy since the end of the Vietnam War.

“It’s putting a rumor to rest,” John Feehery, a spokesman for House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), said even before the 402-2 vote to reject the bill that would have mandated two years of military or civilian service for all men and women 18 to 26 years old.

But congressional Democrats and activists elsewhere denounced the vote as an empty exercise that trivialized what many Americans believe is a real possibility.

Its Charlie Wrangles scare tactic to raise public opinion agaist the war!

nanc said...

well, if that's the case - let's do it! and while we're at it, maybe the prez and v.p. can step down and give it to the buzzards waiting in the wings - let's see just what they can't do!

nanc said...

ben johnson article at fpm on this very thing today.

have a great day, warren - i'm working today.

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc the military would never go for it either. Volunteers make much better soldieers.

nanc said...

warren and elbro - my husband and son would go if needed. of course, i would protest - they are my life and my reason for putting the sun out each morning before i awaken them...fortunately for me, my husband's too old and my son's too young.
