Plame Out

Plame OutThe ridiculous end to the scandal that distracted Washington.
yes, the Saddam Hussein regime did send an important Iraqi nuclear diplomat to Niger in early 1999. And I have not so far received any rebuttal from any source on this crucial point of contention. But there was always another layer to the Joseph Wilson fantasy. Easy enough as it was to prove that he had completely missed the West African evidence that was staring him in the face, there remained the charge that his nonreport on a real threat had led to a government-sponsored vendetta against him and his wife, Valerie Plame.

Welfare Reform- A Clinton Success

  • Ten years ago yestarday (8/22) President Clinton signed the Welfare Reform Act which infuriated committed liberals.
  • The Los Angeles Times said portions of the bill were shameful and would hurt children.
  • The New York Times called it atrocious.
  • Well they were wrong.
  • By insisting that Americans train themselves to work and actively look for a job, the amount of families on the dole has dropped by a whopping 57%.
  • And about 1.6 million kids have been lifted out of poverty because their parents were forced to work.
  • According to the US Census Bureau black children have benefited the most.
  • The poverty rate for female-headed families with children has fallen 15%.
  • As you may know 70% of African-American babies are now born out of wedlock.
  • So by all rational standards, welfare reform has been a stunning success.
  • But we hear little about that from the politicians who voted against reform.
  • People like Senator’s Kennedy, Feinstein, Boxer, Dodd, Lahey, and Murray.
  • Likewise, Congresswoman Pelosi and other liberal House members have not celebrated the bill's success.
  • Politicians that lock themselves into a specific ideology and reject common sense are not looking out for us.
  • The far-left thinks the federal government should mandate "economic justice."
  • They think the feds and states should give people money to elevate their standard of living.
  • But that's a false promise.
  • Hard work and honesty is the true key to a fulfilling life.
  • The feds owe us security, protection and justice.
  • That’s it.
  • Welfare reform has improved the lives of millions of Americans.
  • Liberals were on the wrong side of the issue (most still are) as they are on the wrong side of illegal immigration and the terror-war today.

Ironic how the very methods the Brits used to thwart suicide bombers on 5 international flights, are the same methods liberal judges are denying our government to use to thwart terrorist activities. If the Brits were so constrained, there would have been five flights that never made it to their destinations safely.

I wonder: how many American lives are these liberals willing to sacrifice for the sake of some perceived freedom? Five planes? Ten? Five plus some downdown city? what? Think better about leaving Iraq. Think better about the UN's impotent involvement with Iran. They won't stop. why should we?
