Tuesday's links and comments

Several news articles for your enjoyment on a Tuesday morning.

More evidence of a "Culture of Corruption." Reid Accepted Free Boxing Tickets While a Related Bill Was Pending As Dems push their message of Republican corruption it is a good time to remind them that their senate leader, Harry Reid, accepted the most Abramoff related money and unlike most politicians he has not returned the funds.

John Hawkins of Right Wing News has a column titled 22 Problems With The Senate's Illegal Immigration Bill Anyone reading this should be outraged at the Senate for this load of garbage.

TMI guard playing a video game fails to see inspector Consider the bolded portion below and ask yourself if you feel any safer.
A security guard at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant was so absorbed in playing a hand-held video game that he failed to see an inspector approach during a surprise inspection, the agency said. The employee did not violate any rules as guards are allowed to engage in mind-stimulating activities, the state Department of Environmental Protection said.

Republicans in Congress continue to make fools of themselves as they get indignant in defending their "right" to hide evidence of their wrongdoing in their taxpayer funded office. Today's fool is House Judiciary Chairman Chairman James Sensenbrenner.
Calling the decision to authorize the raid "profoundly disturbing," Sensenbrenner signaled that he would not be among the lawmakers backing off their criticism of the Bush administration. "They didn't get it right this time," Sensenbrenner said.
They also got a former congressman to say stupid stuff about the search.
former Rep. Bob Walker, R-Pa., said Congress should play hardball in seeking answers to its questions by subpoenaing administration documents authorizing the raid. "The American people should be deeply concerned that a decision to conduct a raid on Congress was made consciously and evidently at high levels inside the Justice Department and the FBI," Walker told the panel.
Is this goof Walker saying he would be less concerned if the decision was made at a lower level? I want to make it very clear that this guy is a completely different Bob Walker than my old friend, MCPON Bob Walker.

Source: FBI Ends Hoffa Search on Farm I wonder how much money was wasted on the search before it was called off?

Who does the thought of having Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House help more - Democrats or Republicans? I think her level of liberal extremism is unappealing and it will help Republicans if she is on TV more often.

While most abortions are because babies are just inconvenient, there is a growing concern that the majority of late term abortions are because the child doesn't meet the parents definition of physical perfection. This story is from Britain but don't let that fool you into thinking this isn't happening here.
More than 20 babies have been aborted in advanced pregnancy because scans showed that they had club feet, a deformity readily corrected by surgery or physiotherapy.

According to figures from the Office for National Statistics covering the years from 1996 to 2004, a further four babies were aborted because they had webbed fingers or extra digits, which are also corrected by simple surgery. All the terminations took place late in pregnancy, after 20 weeks.
Sick and depraved. It is a short step from these decisions to deciding to abort baby girls because you had your "heart" set on a son.

Take your final sentence, add a government one-child policy, and you have what is known as "China."

Bill, I think your assessment of Reid might be a little harsh in this instance. While I find Reid to be a fool in most of his comments. At least these tickets could be explained as research in to the bill. A lot of the time the gifts we hear congressman getting have absolutely no connection to the commitees they serve on.

Secondly all these congressman complaining about the the search of congressional offices makes you think. Just what are they hiding,it's hard enough to see any politician as honest without these type of protests.

Exactly. I was thinking of China as I posted that item. We are sadly taking steps towards their warped point of view of the value of human life.


Have to disagree. If there is pending legislation, a senator has an obligation to ensure he avoids the appearance of a conflict. Reid is a big fight fan and to accept free ring side tickets (worth $$$$) and then turn around and vote as desired by the provider of the tickets is tantamount to an out and out bribe.

On your second point I fully concur. Hastert and Sensenbrenner are providing cover for a crook and looking like crooks by doing so.
