FROM WASHINGTON, D.C.
Legislation is being introduces By Sen. Durbin that would keep out the Asian Carp from the Great Lakes area by using the Army Corp. Of Engineers to block off the Mississippi from the Great Lakes. Living in the Great Lakes area of Illinois, I wonder if this is wise and what would happen if that is done?
Would this get rid of the carp that is there and killing off plants and fish? How would they stop the carp from increasing in numbers and have a problem anyway? Not to mention the money that would be thrown into this? This is a question.
I can see the only way to do this is to dam off the area from the Great lakes. What would happen to shipping and coal vessels and the towns that depends on that and food goods? Not to mention employment being killed off more. How can they get ships though? This writer disagrees on this part.
Finally, this writer feels that there is more study needed before a cut off is made that will only be a temp answer and make the economy worse and poorer also. Congress better try something else not waste time and money on this project!
p.s. I seen a little comment from the same paper ( that shall be nameless) that states ‘YOU MIGHT BE A REPUBLICAN IF …. YOU EVER TOLD A CHILD THAT OSCAR THE GROUCH LIVES IN A TRASH CAN BECAUSE HE IS LAZY AND DON’T WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY.’ Excuse me? you mean those who are able to work but choose to rip off the system paid by us the hard-working American. Not those who are in real need In this conservative Democrat’s opinion! I am not the only Democrat that thinks this! Oh for November to get here.
I am writing today in regards to the NAACP and their claims to the Tea Party having members who are throwing racial remarks such as ” Hang Obama’ and ‘ Hang Holder.” They want the Tea Party to renounce the remarks made and calling Sarah Palin a racist. Is this true or false to try to rebound a failing policies?
I seen many Tea Party rallies on television and there have been no remarks of race given or of remarks referring to a person. There have been ‘PROUD TO BE AMERICAN, NO MORE SPENDING, AND SAVE AMERICA ‘ for example. Before it’s too late to do anything such as the oil problem in the Gulf.
This writer agrees with the Tea Party on many of their issues for example. I to want to win the war, stop overspending, and save our country as a conservative Democrat. I vote on issue and person and issue over party. That is, put the country first not get lazy and wreak thier ideas as crazy.
This writer also see this as the last call for the radicals. They know they are on the way out in November and have to use the old race card as last defense. Un luckily for them, people see through this act. Same old, same old by this group and people such as Jesse Jackson. Just as they tried in Washington with health care and the speaker of the house and others saying they were spit on and called bad names. Not true. No facts to back this story up.
Why has the NAACP addressed THE NEW BLACK PANTHERS and their stunt throwing racism remarks and threats the polling place? Wouldn’t this be threats to voters and against the constitution in general ? What would happen if there were three Klansmen who did this? They would have been arrested fast!!
Yes there is racism here. If the NAACP was serious, they would address issues as racism of all kinds here. Jewish, Catholic, Indian, or Irish for example. Not pick and choose to what will fit their groups needs and hope it will work to feed to voter ‘s fears and hope to aid their falling base not serious issues by this November in this writer’s opinion. Give us all a break Mr Jealous. Lets address racism together and not use it for a worn out excuse for a losing cause!
The issue of abortion has been an issue for very one time. Good to see people stepping up to the plate to address the issue ( PROBLEM ) of abortion today. This writer feels that until the law is overturned, abortion has to be stopped, not with violent, but by laws and the all mighty vote!
The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act (PPACA) awards grants money to the states to help women in other ways over abortion from the year 2010-2019 started by U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D) PA. and Lincoln Davis (D) TN. State Also with help from Democrats For Life and Pro-life groups.
The funds have limits however. They must be used to help and support pregnant women and parenting teens and women who face the moment of truth. Once passed (WE HOPE) the law will begin to do the following:
*Institutions of higher learning to establish and maintain parent pregnant student services over abortion, give support with teens, and teenager parents.
*State attorney generals to assist pregnant women who are victims of sexual attacks, domestic violence, sexual violent acts, and stalking issues.
*Increase Public awareness toward services women such as WIC, SCHIP, CHILDCARE, LEGAL ASSISTANCE, AND OTHER TARGETED SUPPORT SERVICES TO THEM.
It is also known that Republicans in congress are positioning themselves to defeat Blue Dog Democrats in the coming fall elections. In this writer’s opinion, Good for the conservative Democrats! The Republicans in due respect should join us to address ending abortions for example and not worry about how they will defeat us.
In respect, they did nothing on their watch to address the abortion issue but are willing to defeat Democrats who agree with them on abortion, gun rights, and saving money! And many who are good Catholics also! That is not putting America first?
Finally, the new law being worked on will do much to help stop abortion in America. Help to young teens or abortion, programs that will help teenagers, and more interaction by the states to address stalking and sexual violent. The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act is a good step in the right direction in this writer’s opinion!! See full story at DEMOCRATS FOR LIFE OF AMERICA @ www.democratsforlife.org
