First we have this, from the Texas GOP. Work on Texas GOP’s platform stirs passions
HOUSTON – Robert Hurt went to Washington and didn’t like what he saw – nudity in the nation’s capital.Of all the evils in Washington that the Texas GOP took aim at this week, removing art with naked people from public view was high on the list for Mr. Hurt, a delegate from Kerrville.
This is a pressing issue? For the love of Saint Pete. Get a life.
For our second news item. Legislators: Voter anger may lead to end of income tax
A weak economy, soaring gasoline prices and a frustration with government could cause voters to approve a ballot initiative to wipe out the state income tax, legislators said Thursday.
Now you know my views on taxes. And if you don’t, to me, Taxes equals Extortion. Granted “Conservatives” USE to believe this. But back to the story.
Even lawmakers who traditionally advocate for lower taxes, such as Lepper, say they oppose the measure as too extreme. Lepper said service for the disabled would “disappear” and other services would be greatly scaled back. “Can you image a 40 percent cut?” Poirier said. “I advocate for judicious cuts, but not with reckless abandon.”
I’m hoping the good people of the great state of Tax-achusetts, that gave us my favorite founding father Sam Adams, will vote for this. And send a message to the Big Government Worshipers a message. We are mad as hell, and we ain’t taking it anymore.
And our last news item you won’t find in the Kool-Aid drinkers blogosphere. It seems, Mr Amnesty himself Sen. Lindsey Graham, is going to go up against in the Nov. election, a Real Conservative, who happens to have a (D) next to his name. Oh no, not a Democrat!! And he’s AGAINST Illegal Immigration!!!
Last month, Conley explained in an interview that he walked away from the Republican Party years ago out of frustration over trade and immigration policies and the Iraq invasion. He contends that conservative positions on social policies, some of which stem from his Catholic beliefs, are valued in South Carolina and are not owned by Republicans.
And the money quote from the newly nominated Democrat? “That party can go to the devil,” he said.
Amen!! Make sure to tune into next weeks version of “News items So-Called Conservatives Don’t Report”.
