Did Niki and Harry Find Jesus?

Posted December 17th, 2010 by Iron Mike

With classic Washington theatrics there was a vote held near Midnight Thursday to approve Obama’s ‘deal’ on renewing the Bush-era tax cuts for two years in exchange for giving the 99ers another 13 months couch time.  It passed 277/ 148/ 10.  Eight of our ten MassHoles voted against it – stubbornly refusing to give those ‘evil richest 2%’ any more breaks. 

Delahunt [who is done] and Tsongas voted to pass the bill!  Wow!  Has Niki found Jesus? 

I went to her congressional website, but found no answers.  It hasn’t been updated since Nov 23rd – some 24 days ago.

In many ways neither side likes this bill.  It turns nothing around.  It will cost us another $858 Billion of borrowed Chinese money to fund the 13 months of unemployment. 

All this bill really does is provide a momentary breather until the Republican-heavy 112th Congress gets sworn in January.  Click here to see how your congressman voted.  Pelosi refused to vote – but ordered her name kept off the tally.

Meanwhile over on the Senate side of the Capital there was another minor miracle unfolding.  Dirty Harry Reid realized that he just didn’t have the votes to push through the pork-laden Omnibus Spending Bill.  He pulled it!

In political language ‘he CAVED’!

In real-world terms it means that those 33 Democrat and RiNO senators who were up for reelection in 2012 did not want this tail pinned on their donkey.  They’ve seen the mood of the country shift back from the brink, and if only for self-perpetuation, they’re paying attention.  Your calls, faxes, e-mails and letters are working.

I’m sure John Ketchup Kerry is breathing a big sigh of relief – that reading of the Bill was so damned annoying, inconvenient, and time consuming.  You can stop sniveling Lurch, the Continuing Resolution will be a lot shorter than 1,924 pages.  You can go sailing soonly.

Well, almost.  Reid’s not done trying to screw over America.  He of all people hasn’t found Jesus!  As he pulled the Omnibus bill, he announced votes on both the DREAM [amnesty] Act and on rescinding DA/DT.

If either is passed, America will be weakened in irreparable ways.  The DREAM nightmare will open the floodgates to a new wave of illegal immigration.  It will immediately overcrowd our junior colleges and colleges – requiring significant taxpayer funded expansion.

Ending DA/DT may seem very fair to all the pro-gay groups.  It’s not.  It will be a death sentence for both gay troops and for soldiers in general.  

It will weaken our armed forces by causing massive disruptions in unit discipline, and costing us a fortune in real and bogus claims of harassment and discrimination.  

With two wars in Southwest Asia, another on our Mexican Border, and a fourth ready to erupt in Korea, – this is absolutely the worst time to screw around with the structure and the morale of our military!  Scott Brown, are you listening?

    Niki had no epiphany, she only did what she was told to do by Miss Nancy, who will soon be the Ghost of Congress Past. Not that Niki cares what her constituents in the 5th want, because as we found out in November, most of them have no clue that she stands for progressive, marxist socialism.
