No you don't and I should know better than to get into these debates with people that see everything as either left or right, blue or red and ABSOLUTELY NO middle ground. Lieberman is there to try to represent everyone not just Democrats. I think he very middle of the road and honestly thought after the VP debates that he should be the one running for President.


He is entirely too close to Bush and the Republicans. He represents nobody but his own interests. Its all about Joe and since he cant lose gracefully, he has elected to split the vote and hurt the Dems in November. And now we have word that Rove has sent word to Lieberman that Bush wants to help him in November. On top of all this, he still supports the debacle in Iraq. I watched a news report this morning that basically said the exit polling reflected the fact that people are more against this war than previously thought as it was a specific reason they voted for Lamont.

Regarding Rove and Bush helping Joe.

Chambliss (whoever he may be)or any other representative, their #1 job (IMO) is to go to Washington and bring funding to your town and state to make improvements to local infrastructure to attract jobs, tourism, improve community services and whatnot to improve the local economy.


Well, yes, but theres also the national issues to consider such as bills put before our representatives. While its important that they represent the hometown, its doubly important, IMO, that they also represent the will of the voters when it comes to decisions such as stem cell research, war etc. I would also suggest that local issues require local representation. Mayors, city councilmen, county commissioners etc. all have a part to play at the local level thats actually more effective then waiting for the money to trickle down from Washington.

It should but it doesn't work that way. All major projects require federal funding of some sort, matching funds or whatever. Your local school runs on some funds from the feds and often can't implement new programs that meet special needs of neighborhoods without fear of losing federal funds. State Medicaid programs run on federal funds. Squatch, I'd bet part of your paycheck comes from federal funds.

That's why I say #1 priorty make sure the funding comes to my town/state.

When this government was established in 1776 it wasn't meant to be the all encompassing monster that is today.

The question now days is, how would liberals deal with it.

It's the moment you've been waiting for, folks. The guy who likes to play Dr. Mengele with snapping turtles is here to tell us what the Lamont victory is really all about.

Yes, it's DerekWorld, where pretzels are straight lines. Liberals support affirmative action, which is proof they hate black people. [George Bush supports the death penalty because he loves them.] Now liberals hate Jews, especially the Jews who are liberals. Kerry was the most liberal guy in the Senate, and about 80 percent of American Jews voted for him. Clearly, the problem is that Jews hate themselves. Come back, Woody Allen, all is forgiven.
quote:
the Liberals and Democrats and the Left of the world go against Israel and directly and indirectly support the Hezbos.

I'm sure you can find tons of examples to support this.

Senate Resolution 534 passed 98-0. It is "Condemning Hezbollah and Hamas and their state sponsors and supporting Israel's exercise of its right to self-defense." It also calls for the release of the Israeli soldiers, condemns the Iranian and Syrian government for supporting Hezbollah and Hamas. Two days later, the House passed Res. 921, again supporting Israel's right to defend itself and condemning the attacks against Israel. The vote was 410 to 8. From this we conclude that there are, tops, 10 Democrats in Congress. What great news for the GOP!
quote:
this is the original folks that wanted Saddam to stay in power

According to new polls, 60 percent of the public thinks the war was a mistake. Apparently the sin of the left here is that some us knew it was a bad idea from the beginning. If we'd supported it and then been wrong, that'd be fine. Damn us for having a clue!

I can't wait for the next time Derek criticizes the media for not reporting the good news from Iraq. Because it just keeps piling up!
http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/07/18/iraq.main/index.html http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/08/03/iraq.hearing/index.html http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/08/03/ambassador.iraq/index.html
It's overwhelming!

quote:
Damn, now we have a bunch of new countries pissed off at us.

If you translate Derek's ouevre into Ukranian, I bet it makes sense.

Polls don't mean diddly squat & hindsight is always 20/20.

Is it possible for 60% of us to think the Iraq adventure was (is) a mistake? Quite possible. The important question is, does 60% believe we should have an immediate pull-out? Which is what multi-millionaire Lamont ran on.

I'll take that as a compliment to my foresight.

There's a margin of error, obviously, but if you're calling the entire science of statistics into question I'm gonna have to ask to see your math.

I don't think that's the question at all. My comment was a humble rejoinder to Derek's. Regardless of whether the country supports an immediate pullout or not, I think I showed you don't have to be a liberal McCarthyist anti-Semite to think the war was a bad idea. So it's kind of a bizarre insult he's trying to create. "They're in the majority- but they thought it first! And that's bad!"

Actually Ive only just heard about this. I havent seen a link or anything to video. Frankly, Im not that interested as she is pretty far out there with this sort of thing. Sad really. The Dems have a long way to go and the sooner the jettison the dead weight, the sooner they can start recovering lost ground and voters.

Here's a link...I know, I know, it's FOX, but I saw a footage by some of the local Atlanta stations and this captured it about the best. Be sure to hang on until the end where her staffers break out with "mother******* crackers" and the ensuing anti-semite remarks. Good ridance indeed. I know poeple here who went to vote just to get rid of her. To think this crew has and was again wanting to represent people of Georgia and the democrats respectively.

What are you considering a major project? Our local government engages in huge projects regularly that are fully funded by local sales tax (8% ouch). Im not questioning your statement on supplemental funding, just saying that Im not seeing it here too much. State level, yes, like for highway construction.

quote:

True, but also we have regular runs at the ballot box for bond elections which fund the lions share of any new school development. Unfortunately, this also translates into increased taxes on the part of homeowners in the affected district. Here is an example from the largest school district in San Antonio. To my knowledge, none of these projects are funded outside of the bond process.

As I understand it, my salary comes from the general fund which is money collected through property taxes for the most part. Now, if I was assigned to a grant program such as drug interdiction or an auto theft program like VTRAP, then yes, we would receive supplemental federal funding.

quote:

True enough. I doubt they could have envisoned everything under the immense control of the federal government.

Jesus, thats a mess. Her security is the "New" Black Panthers? Lovely. I wonder what would happen if there were a white candidate that used the KKK as their security...

The racial slurs were horrible. Unreal.

Good riddance and thankfully the guy that won seems low key and most of all, sane.

EDIT to add:

PS: I dont mind FOX news at all as long as they back up what they claim and in this case, they did and then some.

Yes highways for one. Your Rep must not be very good at getting monies. The first stages of a new bridge to cross the Ohio River has begun. I was in Chicago this past weekend and they had a couple major highway projects going on.
Federal funds helped expand our airport which led to UPS locating their hub here. Which has created many jobs and brought many businesses to Louisville, KY.

If federal monies don't go to the local level why is the NEA one of the biggest lobbys in Washington?

Right there is why I lean conservative. There needs to less things under the control of the federal government and more control at the local level.

Did anyone see Randy Rhodes o Larry King last night. The whining about Israel was ad naseum. What I love is when commentators call out the negatives about Israel front and center. But when they talk about hezbollah, they say the negatives in te context of "Israel will tell you that Hezbollah is this and that." They can't call Hezbollah what they really are.

I'll ask it again, is Hezbollah defending southern Lebanon, and how can that be done if Israel pulled out of Southern lebanon six years ago. Why are they there? Why did they fire rockets into Israel and kidnap two soldiers??
