Porklosi To Give Away Government Lands
[Not only is Nancy Porklosi doing her dam’dest to bankrupt the country both morally and economically, now she wants to GIVE AWAY decomisssioned military bases to local governments!! The land has an economic value–no where near the cash equivilant she and her cronies have given away to their supporters and donors–and should not be given away!! What’s wrong with selling it at the current appraised value?? Granted, all the prices and values still consist of tax money, so as far as the commoner is concerned, it’s just taking money out of one pocket and putting it in another!! As a footnote to the photo: Is there ANYTHING SLIMIER than a politician??]
A land provision strongly supported by Speaker Nancy Porklosi (d-Calif.) and dozens of lawmakers in both chambers was struck from the final version of the 2010 defense authorization bill Wednesday.
The House included the provision in its version of the bill. It required the Pentagon to transfer closed military bases, at no cost, to local authorities for economic development.
Leading Senate defense authorizers strongly opposed the House language and did not include it in its version.
The fate of the language was the last issue leaders of the Senate and House Armed Services Committee resolved as part of conference negotiations on the final defense authorization bill.
It was rejected amid intense lobbying from lawmakers in both chambers who saw great benefits for economic development in their districts.
Treasure Island is one of those shuttered bases with potentially high value. The former base, which closed in 1993, has been the subject of years of failed negotiations between San Francisco — the city Porklosi represents — and the Navy.
Pelosi has personally fought and negotiated with the Navy over the land transfer, but those negotiations broke down. California’s two democRATic senators, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, have also been involved, including sending letters to BarackStar obama, the Pentagon and the leaders of the House and Senate Armed Services panels.
San Francisco and the Navy have been at a stalemate over Treasure Island, squabbling over the price of the land. The Navy estimates it is worth $240 million; the city offered a tenth of that value.
A Charity For Truckers’ Health

[For those truckers who don’t know or the non-truckers, these fundraisers are in conjunction with the Tennessee Truck Show, October 9th and 10th, Crossville, Tn. One can get there by taking exit-311, I-40 and going to the Fitzgerald Truck Center. The entertainment portion of the show will also feature the music of the event’s organizer, Joey Holiday, who will be releasing his brand new CD, titled “Semi Celebrity.” Other performers include TC Bush, Debbie Sparks and Aaron Tippin. Vicky Holiday said tickets to the Tippin concert are free for CDL holders. Other attendees will be charged around $10 per person. Proceeds from the Tippin concert will be donated to St. Jude’s.]
The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund has two new fundraiser events scheduled for the next two months.
The St. Christopher Fund is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping professional drivers get through an unexpected catastrophic health-related event.
The first event on this year’s calendar is the second annual golf outing to be held Friday, Oct. 9, at the Bear Trace Golf Course at Cumberland in Crossville, TN. Tee time will be at 9 a.m., and the golfers can meet at Exit 311 on Interstate 40 at Fitzgerald Truck Center. Transportation to the course will be provided, and the cost per golfer is $75 including cart. Preregistration is suggested so as to block off tee times. To preregister, golfers can call 877-332-4483. For further information, contact Paul Sasso at 254-624-9848 or
ptrkr@hotmail.com.
In conjunction with Truckers Appreciation Week and Thanksgiving, the second event is “Driving for Drivers” in November.
“Driving for Drivers is very simple,” says Sasso. “For the entire month of November we are asking drivers to donate one penny a mile driven during the month to the St. Christopher Fund either by check, money order or credit card. We can show the brotherhood that still abounds. And when each of us sits at our Thanksgiving dinner we can give thanks – either as a recipient or donor – that we care for each other whether we know them or not.”
The fund, started by Sirius XM satellite radio host Dave Nemo and Dr. John McElligott of Knoxville, TN, has assisted more than 50 drivers since its inception – through direct cash dispersement, negotiating of rates, and direction to help find services. There are strict criteria both in medical and financial areas that must be met to qualify.
Recovery Has Started…..NOT!!
Credit dry-up intensifies. Consumer credit fell for the seventh month in a row, contracting $11.98B in August to $2.46T – translating to a -5.8% annual growth rate. Economists had expected a $12.5B decline. Credit-card debt fell for a record 11th straight month, down $9.91B (an annualized shrinkage of 13.1%) to $899.41B (consumer credit release). The drop highlights how lenders are scaling back after being hit with huge debt writeoffs, but it also reflects a reluctance by consumers to hold substantial amid concerns over their jobs and home values.
Go, Rush, Go!!!
Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday he is teaming up with St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts in a bid to buy the Rams, owners of the NFL’s longest losing streak at 14 and just 5-31 since 2007. In a statement, Limbaugh declined to discuss details, citing a confidentiality agreement with Goldman Sachs, the investment firm hired by the family of former Rams owner Georgia Frontiere to review assets of her estate, including the NFL team. Limbaugh also declined to discuss other partners that might be involved in the bid, but said he and Checketts would operate the team. “Dave Checketts and I have made a bid to buy the Rams and we are continuing the process,” Limbaugh said. Forbes magazine has estimated the Rams franchise has a value of $929 million.
What’ta HELL Are They Thinking?!?!
Fluffy obama gets the Nobel Peace Prize?!?! The qualifications and standards have reached a new low!!

What could this political and economic slug have accomplished in just 11 days in office? Fluffy became the “Fascist-in-Chief” on January, 20th and the nomination had to be in Stockholm, Sweden by January 31st.

  • Deadline for submission. The completed forms must reach the Nobel Committee not later than 31 January of the following year. The Committee then screens the nominations and submits a list for approval by the Academy.
What would have been considered in his chase for the prize?

Well, there’s not much that I can find:
  • 01/20: In his inauguaral address, Fluffy stressed the need for sacrifice from all Americans, except of course democRATs, the wealthiest of Americans and those in Hollywood.
  • 01/21: In one of its first actions, the obama administration instructed military prosecutors late Tuesday to seek a 120-day halt of legal proceedings involving detainees at the Guantanamo Bay naval base.
  • 01/21: Immediately after obama took the oath of office Tuesday, http://www.whitehouse.gov underwent its own presidential transition. The main photo, of former President George W. Bush saluting a U.S. Marine crew member after returning from Camp David on Sunday, disappeared. In its place was a rotating series of photos and statements from obama. The first statement: “Change has come to America.”
  • 01/22: With a short memo on Inauguration Day, obama blocked plans to loosen some air quality standards and to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list. But he did not stop several other controversial, late-term environmental regulations issued by the Bush administration — at least not yet.
  • 01/22: The obama administration circulated a draft order Wednesday calling for review of all 245 prisoners’ cases and closure of the facility within a year.
  • 01/23: obama named former Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell (D-Maine) as special envoy to the Middle East and former U.S. Ambassador Richard Holbrooke as special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
  • 01/24: obama on Friday overturned a controversial ban on U.S. support to international aid groups that provide abortion services around the world.
  • 01/26: Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein, a widely admired intellectual and friend of obama, has spent years delving into the obscure issues of regulatory law and behavioral economics. Sunstein’s academic interests in regulation have led him to raise questions about the constitutionality of workplace safety laws and the Clean Air Act. He has embraced a controversial “senior death discount” that calculates the lives of younger people as having a greater value than those of the elderly.
  • 01/27: Federal Reserve Bank of New York President Timothy F. Geithner won confirmation Monday as President Obama’s Treasury secretary despite personal tax lapses that turned more than a third of the Senate against him.
  • 01/27: obama dispatched his special Middle East envoy on his inaugural peacemaking trip Monday, declaring that former Sen. George J. Mitchell would speak for the White House.
  • 01/30: obama blasted Wall Street executives on Thursday, calling it the “height of irresponsibility” that they gave employees massive bonuses last year.
  • 01/31: A powerful Iranian cleric warned obama today to stay away from the harsh rhetoric of the Bush administration in dealing with the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

Check out that list, huh?!?! How much of that bullshit actually had even the remotest link to “world peace??” NONE!!

  • Not only is the American “KoolAid-Drinker” Media in the fascist bag-the world’s socialists are as well!!
  • Judging by the list, merely “flapping your lips” will get you a prize!!
  • Merely hiring a fraud and and tax cheat to run the Treasury will get you a prize!!
  • About that $1.4million cash prize: For tax purposes, it’s “unearned income” much like the Wall Street bonuses!! The prize-if he keeps it [lol!!]-will increase his net worth by almost 25%!!; Will he donate it to his favorite charity; donate it to the “obama Reelection Fund;” ask the IRS to tax it away” much like they did to those on Wall Street?!?!

Til Nex’Time….
