Congresswoman McKinney

A major non-issue has become an all out attack of the security in place around the Capital.

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has sent out her lawyer thugs to start the accusation that her race, not the fact she ignored an order by security officer, is to blame for her altercation with the Capitol Police.

Congresswoman McKinney wants to start the racial name calling then let’s have at it.

This in not an actual news report but maybe closer to the truth:

Congresswoman McKinney obvious hatred of the white race could have been the reason she blatantly ignored the officer who asked her to stop, not once but three times. She was then so shocked that a “lowly white man” would place a hand upon her highly superior and elected body that she did the only thing that any intelligent black woman would do in that position she fought to defend herself.

Congresswoman McKinney refusal to apologize stems from her belief that the white officer is so beneath her that there is no need for her to apologize but for the officer to pay to have the stink of his touch removed from her clothing.

Replenishment of the Enterprise for the Americas Multicultural Investment Fund

I’d like to say I don’t believe what I’m reading but I know that it happens all the time…

If you get a chance check out H.R. 4916 (Click Here) this is a bill being considered that will send $150,000,000 to “provide grants and loans to foster private sector development in Latin America and the Caribbean.” (Emphasis added)

The CBO estimates that implementation of this bill could cost $81,000,000 over 2007-2011 period. See the CBO’s comments HERE.

Once again here we go sending our hard working tax dollars elsewhere in an effort to do what? Can’t we have some common sense when it comes to spending?

It is such a shame that in this country we would actually have a business that would refuse to sell an issue of a magazine because of a controversial comic.

I was simply shocked to read this article! (Link)

I can not believe that Borders would do this. What are they afraid of? Do they think that those Muslims that live in this county are going to start a war over this? This is a country that is based on freedoms that other countries do not have. Borders should not shrink from this issue of Free Inquiry. If Borders is going to carry the magazine all issues should be available to the consumer.

I’ve seen the comics and while I am not a Muslim I can see why there would be some distaste of the images, just as I hate the images I see of President Bush. The reaction of Muslims, in other countries, to the comics is central to Borders actions. They are in essence afraid of pissing of a group of people and they are being racist about it. Borders thinks nothing of allowing conservative, liberal, racial, ethnic, and feminist depictions in magazines but stops a publisher when it comes to a comic that they dislike.

I am simply appalled.

Jill Carroll freed?!?!

Okay, I’ve had a gut feeling since she first appeared on Al Jazeera that everything was not on the up and up now I think this confirms it:

From USA Today (Click here for link)

“Carroll said she was kept in a furnished room with a window and a shower,
but she did not know where she was. "


“"I was treated well, but I don't know why I was kidnapped," Carroll said in a
brief interview on Baghdad television.”

Now we have all seen what these kidnappers have done to others. Why was she treated so differently? And did she forget what they had her say about releasing the female prisoners?
