As the Slime Machine of the Democratic party starts to regurgitate there assine theories most Americans see the tragic shooting for what it was, a mentally ill wack job looking for his fifteen minutes. It’s laughable that these self-righteous pricks try to smear conservatives for this lunatics actions. I seem to remember BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA was the one calling Republicans “Enemies” and for his supporters to “Punish There Enemies”. But god forbid the media mention that, you expect mutants like Obermann and the George Soros puppets at the Daily Kos to blather this BS but you would hope for more balance from other media outlets. The leftwings obsession with Sarah Palin is funny, most conservatives like her but no one I know would vote for her. The lefts whining has just turned her into a rock star and promoted her celebrity. You can always tell when a conservative starts to hit the lefts sore spot by the way the jackals howl.
Two Democrats announce their plans to over-react to Arizona massacre
A little more than 24 hours after a lone gunman attempted to assassinate Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, killing and wounding more than a dozen others in the process, two Democratic representatives announced their plans to further restrict Americans’ freedom.
U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, whose husband was killed and her son injured in a subway car shooting, wants to renew a Clinton-era ban on large ammunition magazines, as well as investigate the type of ammunition used by deranged (and possibly schizophrenic) shooter Jared L. Loughner. “Looking at the number of clips that he was able to fire, from 15 to 20 rounds, we need to look at those and say, ‘Why should an average citizen be able to have that?'” McCarthy said. “If you have a semi-automatic and can’t take someone down with a standard clip, you shouldn’t have one.”
Meanwhile, Democratic Rep. Robert Brady would like to make it “a federal crime for a person to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a Member of Congress or federal official.” When asked by CNN if he honestly expected his colleagues to join him in defecating on the First Amendment, Brady replied, “Why would you be against it?”
Sen John Kerry Democrat Net Worth $167.550 million
Teresa Heinz Kerry (Wife & heir to Heinz fortune) Net Worth $1 billion dollars
Well the hypocrsy of the Democrats just never ends, these characters constantly advocate raising taxes on the middle class while spending tax dollars like there’s no end. These uber rich millionaires and billionaires have no problem bankrupting the country while berating the rest of us that we need to pony up more of our income to bankroll there elitist radical left agenda. Since the coronation of King Obama a continuing number of Democrats have been caught cheating on taxes or playing fast and lose with the tax code. You have Pelosi under reporting her assets, Charlie Rangel (NY (D) House Rep) and Tim Geithner (Treasury Sec) just plain cheating the taxpayers. Obama Nominees like Tom Daschle and others have had tax problems. Now the elitists of elitists Sen. John Kerry is outed for screwing his state out of almost $500.000
in sales taxes and $70.000 per year in MA excise taxes on his new $7 million dollar yacht. The media loves to paint Republicans as being greedy business types but rarely report the out right hypocrosy of there friends. Obama hammered the Republicans during the campaign when it came to Wall Street donations collecting almost twice what McCain received. Democrats like Sen. Chris Dodd are so in bed with Wall Street its amazing he doesn’t have an STD. All this election did was transfer billions of dollars from Republican fat cats to Elitist far left Democratic fat cats. Look at guys like Clinton and Gore and there income levels since leaving office, the politicians in both parties are driving the middle class right out of existence. It just is amazing how the lamestream media fails to hammer these elitists politicians who advocate tax and spend for everyone else while they play by a whole different set of rules. Another little tidbit is the yacht was built in New Zealand, I guess John Kerry doesn’t think much of American workers.
Sen. John Kerry skips town on sails tax
By Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa
Friday, July 23, 2010 – Updated 1 day ago
Sen. John Kerry, who has repeatedly voted to raise taxes while in Congress, dodged a whopping six-figure state tax bill on his new multimillion-dollar yacht by mooring her in Newport, R.I.
Isabel – Kerry’s luxe, 76-foot New Zealand-built Friendship sloop with an Edwardian-style, glossy varnished teak interior, two VIP main cabins and a pilothouse fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage – was designed by Rhode Island boat designer Ted Fontaine.
But instead of berthing the vessel in Nantucket, where the senator summers with the missus, Teresa Heinz, Isabel’s hailing port is listed as “Newport” on her stern.
Could the reason be that the Ocean State repealed its Boat Sales and Use Tax back in 1993, making the tiny state to the south a haven – like the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Nassau – for tax-skirting luxury yacht owners?
Cash-strapped Massachusetts still collects a 6.25 percent sales tax and an annual excise tax on yachts. Sources say Isabel sold for something in the neighborhood of $7 million, meaning Kerry saved approximately $437,500 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of about $70,000.
The senior senator’s chief of staff David Wade denied the old salt was berthing his boat out of state to avoid ponying up to the commonwealth.
“The boat was designed by and purchased from a company in Rhode Island, and it’s based in Newport at the Newport Shipyard for long-term maintenance, upkeep and charter purposes, not tax reasons,” Wade told the Track.
And state Department of Revenue spokesguy Bob Bliss confirmed the senator “is under no obligation to pay the commonwealth sales tax.”
But back in 2006, then-gubernatorial candidate Christy Mihos took some flack for avoiding some $23,000 in Bay State sales tax and $1,320 in local excise taxes by berthing his motor yacht in Rhode Island. But Mihos paid just $475,000 for his 36-foot vessel Ashley and readily admitted that he used the boat at his West Yarmouth summer home.
However, according to Bliss, if Kerry berths the Isabel in Massachusetts waters within six months of purchasing the boat, there’s a “presumption of use” and the Heinz-Kerrys would have to walk the plank and pony up to the Bay State. After six months, should the boat change its berth to, say, Nantucket, then it’s up to the state to go after them for the taxes, Bliss added.
Yesterday, the Isabel, which lists Great Point LLC of Pittsburgh, Penn., as its owner, was getting a spruce-up at the Hinckley shipyard in Portsmouth, R.I. Sources say the senior senator is demanding that some warranty work be done.
Fontaine, a protege of legendary sailboat designer Ted Hood, was tight-lipped about the owners of Isabel but he did confirm the boat was built in New Zealand. According to Internet reports, Kerry was seen in Whangarei last December inspecting his new high-seas plaything.
Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Democrats are playing politics with soldiers lives. The pork added to this bill has nothing to do with the wars. This crap has been done for decades but funding for military operations has usually been free of this despicable practice, or the pork involved was buying 50 trucks when the Army asked for 30. But the current leaders of the Democratic Party are obsessed with forcing there far left radical agenda down Americans throats. There appears to be no end to there dirty politics. Withholding bullets and food from the troops to add $17 billion in pork for political favors, the bill also allow the Democrats to pass a budget with NO VOTE. These cowards know the majority of voters do not support 99% of there left wing budget.
While the nation gets a peek into what lap dogs most Democrats are the media is totally missing the important part of the whole story. Do Democratic Party voters just see (D) on there ballot and mindlessly pull the handle. This clown Alvin got 60% of the vote, this mental midget didn’t just squeak by he trounced his opponent. It appears the average Democrat gets there marching orders from there union overlords or local preacher and just wander down to the polling station like zombies and vote. You look at lightweights like Obama and you really wonder, what real qualities or skills did Obama bring to the table. Did he ever create a private sector job, did he ever have to make a payroll. Hell he never even held a real job all he has ever done is mooch off taxpayers and rich pimps funding his radical agenda. He didn’t even finish his first term in the Senate even after promising he would. Its no wonder the private sector has lost 2.5 millions jobs while nearly 500,000 public sector jobs have been added under Obama. While unemployment hovers near 10% and jobless claims spike again the Democrats continue to offer nothing but more spending and regulation. Private sector salaries spiral down while public sector wages continue to rise. The labor folks just reported the number of federal workers earning $100k+ has risen to 16%. This is your hard earned money being spent by morons, Alvin is just the latest moron to come along.
Alvin Greene said he has no plans to attend a meeting Thursday of party leaders deciding whether to overturn the primary election result that named him the South Carolina Democratic Senate nominee to challenge Sen. Jim DeMint in November.
In a brief phone interview with FoxNews.com, Greene said he was not attending the state party’s executive committee meeting in Columbia to hear a protest by former state lawmaker Vic Rawl, whom he defeated in the June 8 primary.
South Carolina’s Democrats are poised to decide the fate of the election in which Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed military veteran, shocked local officials by winning without raising funds, giving any speeches or holding any rallies.
Rawl has asked the state Democratic Party for a new primary election based on flaws with the voting machines or software. In his protest, he cited voting irregularities including people who tried to vote for Rawl but whose ballots showed Greene’s name checked instead.
So far, no evidence of tampering or voting abnormalities has been determined. South Carolina’s Board of Elections told FoxNews.com it has no plans to investigate the vote.
Rawl doesn’t have to prove malfunctions occurred to get a ruling in his favor, said party executive director Jay Parmley. But the committee must consider the facts carefully because any decision it makes could be appealed to the state Supreme Court.
“There is not anything in the law that says anything regarding the burden of proof,” Parmley said. But: “It’s not like we will say, ‘We don’t like the candidate,’ so we will overturn the election.”
The executive committee was expected to make a decision at the end of Thursday’s hearing. The group could uphold the election, order a new primary or find that problems were so significant that Rawl should be declared the winner, according to Parmley. State party leaders said they can’t remember the committee ever overturning a statewide primary result.
Greene, who managed to win 59 percent of the vote, told FoxNews.com Thursday that he’s been in contact with party leaders “a little bit” over the decision, before hanging up the phone.
Bakari Sellers, South Carolina Democratic Party vice chairman, told Fox News on Wednesday, that he met with Greene shortly after his win and urged him to step out of the race. But Bakari said just because he doesn’t support Greene’s candidacy, he was unlikely to reject his victory.
“I don’t think that we have the right to overturn the election,” he said. “Unless there is something that comes up between now and tomorrow, when we’ll have this protest hearing, I’m not sure that there’s any evidence there to overturn the election.”
Alluding to a pending felony charge that Greene allegedly showed obscene Internet photos to a 19-year-old college student, Bakari said he thought it would be best if Greene withdrew his candidacy.
“In light of the recent charges, after hearing the outcry of the victim … whether or not he’s innocent or guilty, I felt it necessary that we get this behind us,” he said. “Unfortunately that went on deaf ears,” Bakari said.
For his part, Greene has said he won the election through “simple, old-fashioned” campaigning that included traveling the state and speaking to voters “wherever I could find them.”
But other party members, like South Carolina Democratic Party Communications Director Keina Page, have called Greene’s unlikely win “very suspicious.” U.S. House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., has called Greene a “plant” and has demanded an investigation into his candidacy.
Addressing speculation that he was a “plant,” Greene denied the charge, saying no one paid him or approached him about entering the race.
“From day one, they just didn’t have confidence in my campaign,” he said of state party leaders in an interview last week with FoxNews.com.
