Wow or Trent Lott bashes Talk Radio

I am so confused by the Republicans today and this kind of stuff isn't helping.

Comments by Republican senators on Thursday suggested that they were feeling the heat from conservative critics of the bill, who object to provisions offering legal status. The Republican whip, Trent Lott of Mississippi, who supports the bill, said: “Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.”

A very sad day.

Liberals - The Party of Disdain or Hate the Right

Proof Positive that the liberals in positions of power are corrupt have a deep disdain for the right. I guess if Angelina Jolie can try muting free speech by banning Fox News and making journalist sign contracts for interviews, liberals everywhere see justification in coming out of the closet and showing their true colors.

From the article:

Radio station WIOD likely will remain Broward County's official channel for emergency information despite concerns it is also home to conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

County commissioners said they were deluged with complaints from throughout the country Wednesday after they questioned whether to cut their ties with the station because of their dislike for Limbaugh. By the end of the day, a majority of commissioners vowed to renew WIOD's agreement next week.

This is a group of county commissioners that wanted to end an "emergency brodcast" contract with a radio station because the radio station airs Rush Limbaugh.

A Surcharge on People

Democrats seek a surcharge on people who are too successful. From the article linked below

a 4 percent surcharge on income over $200,000 for families and $100,000 for singles

Click here for the article
"Our plan is as simple as can be. And only 2 percent of the whole population would have to pay it," said Leonard E. Burman, director of the Tax Policy Center. The plan has the added benefit of abolishing the complicated AMT at all income levels, Burman said, an approach some lawmakers find attractive.

Again, a surcharge on people who have been successful. I question the "only 2 percent" statement. I'd like to think that more than two percent make over 100K. This is purely a redistribution of wealth and an effort to further advance class envy.

You want to eliminate the AMT? Then stop spending so much money!!!

May have to switch parties

Sorry for not posting in while, but between being busy and not being able to access the new google account, I just haven't spent the time to get up to date.

Much more on this later, but I cannot accept what the republican party is doing on the issue of immigration. Very seriously looking at a new party. Even if my congressman and senator vote against this, and I am not even going to check on that, the party is moving away from the conservative principles in which I believe. I fear I can no longer support the republicans in any way, and I fear for them that many many feel the same.

Election Comments

I really only have one comment on the elections. How long will it take before we start hearing how peachy things are in Iraq? January is my guess... We'll start hearing how every thing is lovely in Iraq, nothing will actually change, but it will appear as though all is well there now that the Democrats are in charge here.

I'll take that though, it's better than just pulling out. No more daily negative news reports on the subject. It'll expose the media bias, but only to those of us who notice.

One more comment (ok so I have two), how long before the media starts reporting on our booming economy? How long before the democrats start taking credit for that booming economy? How long before they screw it up with tax hikes?

Sekula Gibbs Rally in Sugar Land

Couple of pictures from tonight’s rally at Sugar Land airport. President Bush talked for 40 minutes or so and gave a terrific speech. I am glad my wife, son, and I were fortunate enough and to obtain tickets and make the rally. The President's speech was great, the excitement was wonderful, and the event was well attended by many republicans and Texas politicians.

I voted yesterday. Texas has a great early voting system and I always take advantage the opportunity to beat long lines at the polls. The wait was a little longer this year than in past years because of the new electronic voting machines. Between figuring out the new system and spelling out SHELLEY SEKULA GIBBS, everyone was taking a little extra time in the booth. I had to wait maybe 10 minutes for my turn at the machine. Using the machine was relatively painless, but I still wish I had the old “fill in the circle with a number 2 pencil” ballot. OK, Nick Lampson (and Shelley for that matter) you can stop sending me ads in the mail.

Get out and Vote!
