So sorry for getting this out late today. I had a “honey-do” list like you wouldn’t believe. I finished it just before 4pm – which gave me just enough time to take my shower and get settled in to watch the Steelers play the Bears. Can’t believe Reed choked TWO TIMES!!! Oh – well. In between all that – it was BoBo’s time to cook dinner tonight – I made Steak Sirloin Poivre with a dijon reduction with sweet peas and a baked potato as sides – so – that obviously took some of my time away as well. But – here I am!
I want to let everyone know that I have been given notice from Blog Carnival that this edition will be featured on their front page on Tuesday, September 22, 2009. We have a boatload of submissions this week – so – if anyone comes here through Blog Carnival they will get a large selection of diverse views on politics that they won’t get anywhere else. Thanks to all who contributed this past week. As you all know, I generally like to add my two-cents when I can. Unfortunately, due to the delay and deadline – I won’t be able to get to them again. However, for those of you who did submit – just so you know – I do read every one of them when I get the submission notice through the e-mails.
For those of you who are coming by to see your post – and don’t – that’s probably because it had nothing to do with politics. You know who you are. I will be glad to add your submissions – even if you have a blog that has nothing to do with politics as long as the post you submit actually does have some relevance.
With that being said – let’s get to it:
Scott Spiegel presents It Doesn’t Matter What This Column Says—You’ll Call It Racism Anyway posted at Scott Spiegel.
smrtas1 presents Another Lie Joe Wilson Missed in Obama?s Health Care Speech posted at Conservative Patriot HQ.
SVB presents Federal Minimum Wage Through History, Plus Sundry Thoughts posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “I discuss the fed minimum wage.”
Smarter Wallet presents Cut Postage Costs With Email: Will This Close The Post Office? posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “Should the government think of cutting work hours for the post office?”
DWSUWF presents Racism increases 67% since January posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall, saying, “Here are the facts. Racism has been rising steadily over the last few months. In recent polls, President Obama’s job approval number has dropped from 70% to 50%. This means the percentage of racists in this country has risen from 30% to 50% – a 67% increase in only eight months! Even more alarming, close to one out of two Americans are now racist. We have reached a tipping point. If this trend continues, the racists will soon be in a majority.”
BWL presents Could the Homebuyer tax credit be increased to $15,000? posted at Christian Personal Finance, saying, “Apparently the $8000 tax credit for new home buyers wasn’t enough spending, now there is another bill on the table to extend it, increase it to $15,000, and open it to everyone! If it happens it could cost taxpayers $100 Billion…”
TheConservativeJournal presents Fireside Chat: An Interview with Someone Inside The 9/12 Project Rally in DC posted at The Conservative Journal, saying, “I got this interview with Mike after his trip to the big rally in D.C. and I thought it was pretty interesting. It’s something different that other’s might enjoy. Thanks”
Joe Garecht presents The #1 Tip for Republicans Running in Urban Districts posted at Local Victory – Your Guide to Winning Elections, saying, “This is a “how to” political article we just published detailing how Republicans can win elections in big cities.”
Emma Taylor presents 100+ Excellent Open Courses on American History, Politics, and Culture posted at Online Degree Hub.
Basically Law presents Rush Opposes a Third Party Without Realizing He Turned the Republican Party Into One posted at Stupid Right Wingers.
BLW – Okay – I have to comment on this one too – What? I read this – and – I don’t see it. What he is calling for is the Republicans who were supposed to be conservatives to get back to their conservative roots and for those of us who are leaving the party or considering third parties not to. There are way too many RINO progressives in the Republican party. If that party ever wants to succeed again – they need to get rid of the RINOs. I am no longer a member of the Republican party for that very reason. I think Rush is wrong on this one – but – I don’t see what you’re saying.
Basically Law presents House Republicans Plan To Curb Health Care Costs Is Clearly Unconstitutional posted at Stupid Right Wingers, saying, “The Republican call for federal medical malpractice reform has one major snag – it is unconstitutional.”
BLW – I had to comment on your posts – actually – ALL entitlement programs coming from the Dems are unconstitutional as well. I have to admit – reading your stuff definitely had my blood boiling. This isn’t a Republican thing. This is a big government thing regardless of who is in power. Anything that goes against personal liberties and freedom to choose and to earn a living without government interference is unconstitutional. Going back to the early 20th century when progressives started permeating our government – that is when our constitution really took a trampling – and every administration since Woodrow Wilson has taken more and more of our freedom away through big government and forced charity through programs like Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Unemployment, SCHIP, etc. NOTHING in the constitution allows for any of that. You rightfully point out that tort reform is a Tenth Amendment issue – but – so are insurance (health, auto, home, etc); unemployment; education; intrastate commerce; and a whole other list of things. But – you missed the big picture – our government has been implementing unconstitutional programs that violate the 10th amendment for quite some time now which no judicial challenge. What makes you think this one would ever make it to SCOTUS?
