Hawaii Senate passses Prohibition against seizure of firearms, twenty-one to nothing.
What I like best about the whole thing is that it’s Teddy’s seat with Teddy’s health reform passion in Teddy’s senate with Teddy’s boughten democratic insanity in a CHANGE we, US, don’t want, don’t need, can’t afford and despise, that may, finally, allow Mary Jo Kopenich to RIP as the rest of US breathe a sigh of relief from the insanity installed in Washington a year ago.
Pelosi spent the day huddled in her Capitol office with various Democratic factions. Senior aides said she has yet to identify the 218 votes needed to push the Senate bill through her chamber, nor is she convinced that the bill is politically sound. – -
Tuesday’s election also deepened the uncertainty surrounding another top administration goal: overhauling the nation’s financial regulatory system. A version of the legislation passed the House last month, but it has met stiff resistance from Republicans on the Senate banking committee, primarily over the creation of a Consumer Financial Protection Agency.
The cost of the Senate proposed substandard government health care is beyond the means of the people to pay for. Worse than the cost, I would like to remind Senators of the reality of the proposed Senate health care bill that includes rationing, substandard care and denial of service. That may not affect congressmen who can exempt themselves from it, but it will adversely affect us.

Thanksgiving. Twenty pound turkeys. Stuffing and all kinds of trimmings.
Turkey is best when it’s sliced before serving. Then cut into bite-sized pieces before inserting in mouth. Congress is looking to stuff the bird with things they don’t want to read, consume the whole turkey in one big swallow, then pass the gas off on us.
Yesterday the Senate began the turkey season with 60 votes for its two thousand seventy four (2,074) pages of S.1697. It’s difficult enough to imagine our busy Senators taking the time to count the pages, let alone read the words printed on them. As Senator Murkowski (another smart lady from Alaska) said, that 20 1/2-pound pile of the Senate’s 2,074 pages [propaganda] is a turkey of a bill.
Senator Boxer complained of the resolution’s objectors, “Nowhere on their desk do we see their bill. They have no answers, no solutions.” Here’s one. Cut the turkey into reasonable servings. Then cut it again, for bite size pieces. No need to pretend the Congressional Turkey bills are ready to serve. No need to practice gluttony. If it’s not suitable for Congress, it isn’t suitable for US, the citizens.
On Nov 7 the House of Representatives made history by passing HR 3962 at the Request of the President and Elitists who will benefit from the bill. The proposed comprehensive health care reform is historic in that the yeah Votes of Representatives and Senators do not reflect the desire of the constituents who vote for Congressmen to represent them. The Senate is copying the moronity of the House.
Those Representatives and Senators who do not vote for Obama’s health care takeover, or the Congressional turkey of a bill, are to be commended for choosing to represent their constituents, those of US who vote for them. Like Ringo Star said, “Everything government touches turns to crap,” so hands off our health care!
A vote for the proposed Health Care by any of its names represents the intent of Congress to take over the business of insurance and health care, neither of which the Government is set up to do, nor competent in. The gross negligence of promising our grandchildren an insurmountable debt before they are even born is an action not becoming a Congressman.
A greater service the Congress can provide to the people in the districts they represent is to work to fix Medicaid and Medicare; lift restrictions that prohibit interstate health insurance; disconnect employers from individual health care so people can choose what is best for them as individuals; work toward TORT reform to reduce the inflated costs of health care. Mrs Boxer, is this too complicated to understand?
“It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones.” – Calvin Coolidge
HR 3962 was a bill to kill.
So is the Senate’s version.
