Some Political Tidbits and there's some good ones.

Poor Foley, hasn't he suffered enough? Now he's being investigated.

John Kerry banished from the picture and John Edwards bashes Walmart one day than begs from them the next.

You'll never believe this video. A plot to kill the Supreme court and Gay Penguins?

John F. Kerry Kicked Out of Picture

What would I do without John Kerry to kick around?

Not that the man doesn’t do a fine job of putting himself in the position of human football extraordinaire. Seems THIS time ole JFK decided to insinuate himself into a Senate leadership photo-shoot along with the new leaders of the new Senate majority.


Seems Chuck Schumer, who is said to have some real issues with this new JFK, who also served in Vietnam by the way, allegedly turned around and whispered something in Kerry’s ear as he walked along with a quartet of the newly elected Democratic Senate leaders. Photographers were busy shooting this shot only, well hey I’d tell Kerry to get lost too. What the hell did he do to help the Dems take over the Senate? No wait…Kerry almost lost it all for the Dems what with his ridiculous slur against our military.

ABC's Z. Byron Wolf Reports: For anyone who needed more evidence that Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) is out of favor with Democrats, it appeared that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) kicked him out of the Democrats' leadership walk on Tuesday.

As the new Senate leaders departed from the Old Senate Chamber on their way to the Ohio Clock Corridor to talk about their agenda, the election of the leaders, and Iraq, John Kerry -- not a member of the new leadership -- walked out of the room behind new Majority Leader Harry Reid, Majority Whip Dick Durbin, Caucus Secretary Patty Murray and Caucus Vice-Chair Schumer. It is, after all, a public hallway in the Senate.

What’s most amusing is the picture below. Kerry looks exactly like a little kid looking out for an angry mother.

John Kerry told to get lost

Speaking of that Dynamic Democrat 2004 Presidential Team

The lily-livered Republicans ought to take a lesson from Wal-mart. For while the retail giant is constantly under attack for, well, for making a profit, the store DOES fight back. What a concept.

Attacking successful businesses is a stalwart stance of the Moonbats in this country, particularly the union Moonbats. Wal-mart does not, however, just sit back and take it.

John Edwards, that former Breck-girl Senator who was the VP choice of Vietnam Vet John Kerry in the 2004 election, spends much of his time doing the union’s bidding and going out and about and bashing Wal-Mart. Go with me here, myself considers terrorists a way bigger threat than Wal-Mart but there you go.

It was Wal-mart who came up with the $4.00 prescription plan, a stroke of PR genius.

This time Wal-mart got a recording of the Edwards’ staffer as she left a message indicating an affiliation with Senator Edwards’ office with a request for a Sony Playstation 3 for the Senator. This, GET THIS, the SAME day Edwards gave a speech lambasting Wal-mart on behalf of his union masters and donors.

Seems Senator Edwards didn’t want to wait in line.

Wal-mart, to my everlasting admiration, immediately issued a press release detailing Edwards’ hypocrisy.

Heh. The pubbies should learn a lesson from Wal-mart.

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards acknowledged Thursday that amid his criticism of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., a volunteer member of his staff asked the world's largest retailer for help obtaining a hot new Sony Playstation 3 for Edwards' family.

Edwards, a potential 2008 presidential candidate, told The Associated Press that the volunteer "feels terrible" about seeking the game unit at Wal-Mart while his boss claims the retailer doesn't treat its employees fairly.

"My wife, Elizabeth, wanted to get a Playstation3 for my young children. She mentioned it in front of one of my staff people. That staff person mentioned it in front of a volunteer who said he would make an effort to get one. He was making an effort to go get one for himself," Edwards said.

Adding to Edwards’ sheer audacity, the man blamed a poor volunteer when, well I don’t know how stupid yon readers are but I don’t believe for a second that this volunteer did this completely on her own. She took the action of calling Wal-mart because somebody told her to. Common sense, folks. The Political Elite don’t have an ounce of it.

Illegal Immigrants and How They Tax Local Hospitals

Verified at Snopes, below is just an example of the unheralded problem of illegals across this country and how LOCAL authorities and hospitals are impacted by the throng of illegals taxing the infrastructure.

Parkland Memorial Hospital

Claim: A recent patient survey indicated that 70% of the women who gave birth at Parkland in the first three months of 2006 were illegal immigrants.

Status: True.

Example: [Collected via e-mail, 2006]

Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas is a fairly famous institution and for a variety of reasons:

1. John F. Kennedy died there in 1963
2. Lee Harvey Oswald died there shortly after
3. Jack Ruby, who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, died there a few years later by coincidence

On the flip side, Parkland is also home to the second busiest maternity ward in the country with almost 16,000 new babies arriving each year. (That's almost 44 per day — every day)

A recent patient survey indicated that 70 percent of the women who gave birth at Parkland in the first three months of 2006 were illegal immigrants.' Crikey, that's 11,200 anchor babies born every year just in Dallas. According to the article, the hospital spent $70.7 million delivering 15,938 babies in 2004 but managed to end up with almost $8 million dollars in surplus funding. Medicaid kicked in $34.5 million, Dallas County taxpayers kicked in $31.3 million and the feds tossed in another $9.5 million.

The average patient in Parkland's maternity wards is 25 years old, married and giving birth to her second child. She is also an illegal immigrant. By law, pregnant women cannot be denied medical care based on their immigration status or ability to pay. OK, fine. That doesn't mean they should receive better care than everyday, middle-class American citizens. But at Parkland Hospital, they do.

Parkland Memorial Hospital has nine prenatal clinics. NINE. The Dallas Morning News article followed a Hispanic woman who was a patient at one of the clinics and pregnant with her third child — her previous two were also born at Parkland. Her first two deliveries were free and the Mexican native was grateful because it would have cost $200 to have them in Mexico. This time, the hospital wants her to pay $10 per visit and $100 for the delivery but she was unsure if she could come up with the money. Not that it matters, the hospital won't turn her away. (I wonder why they even bother asking at this point.)

How long has this been going on? What are the long-term effects? Well, another subject of the article was born at Parkland in 1986 shortly after her mother entered the U.S. illegally — now she is having her own child there as well. (That's right, she's technically a U.S. citizen.) These women receive free prenatal care including medication, nutrition, birthing classes and child care classes. They also get freebies such as car seats, bottles, diapers and formula.

Most of these things are available to American citizens as well but only for low-income applicants and even then, the red tape involved is almost insurmountable.

Because these women are illegal immigrants they do not have to provide any sort of legitimate identification — no proof of income. An American citizen would have to provide a social security number which would reveal their annual income — an illegal immigrant need only claim to be poor and the hospital must take them at their word.

My husband is a pilot for the United States Navy (yes, he fought in Iraq) and while the health care is good, we Navy wives don't get any of these perks! Car seats? Diapers? Not so much. So my question is this: Does our public medical care system treat illegal immigrants better than American citizens? Yes it does!

As I mentioned, the care I have received is perfectly adequate but it's bare bones, meat and potato medical care — not top of line.

Their (the illegals) medical care is free — simply because they are illegal immigrants? Once again, there is no way to verify their income. Parkland Hospital offers indigent care to Dallas County earn less than $40,000 per year. (They also have to prove that they did not refuse health coverage at their current job. Yeah, the 'free' care is not so easy for Americans.)

There are about 140 patients who received roughly $4 million dollars for un-reimbursed medical care. As it turns out, they did not qualify for free treatment because they resided outside of Dallas County. So the hospital is going to sue them! Illegals get it all free! But U.S. citizens who live outside of Dallas County get sued! How stupid is this?

As if that isn't annoying enough, the illegal immigrant patients are actually complaining about hospital staff not speaking Spanish. In this AP story, the author speaks with a woman who is upset that she had to translate comments from the hospital staff into Spanish for her husband. The doctor was trying to explain the situation to the family and the mother was forced to translate for her husband who only spoke Spanish. This was apparently a great injustice to her.

In an attempt to create a Spanish-speaking staff, Parkland Hospital is now providing incentives in the form of extra pay for applicants who speak Spanish. Additionally, medical students at the University of Texas Southwestern for which Parkland Hospital is the training facility will now have a Spanish language requirement added to their already jammed-packed curriculum. No other school in the country boasts such a ridiculous multi-semester (multicultural) requirement.

Florida Opens Investigators Open Foley Probe

It’s not enough to mow the man down. Now we must kick him while he’s dead.

Mark Foley used the Congressional Page Pool to troll for future homosexual lovers, make no mistake. But he never had any contact with his potential future lovers until they were of legal age. Thus, the man broke no laws although plenty, including me, considered his behavior inappropriate.

The man immediately resigned from his position and has been gone from the national scene for quite a while.

But such as opening “investigative probes” allows opposition parties and the like to find juicy gossip and other tidbits to harm political enemies. I mean it’s not like Florida doesn’t have a huge problem with its Child Welfare authorities in that almost every day one reads stories of helpless children abused or killed even though the Florida child welfare authorities were supposedly on the job. Nah, more important we spend time, money and resources going after a political opponent.

Covered on this Blog HERE.

Tom Foley-Republican pervert (CNN) -- The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has opened a criminal investigation of former Republican Rep. Mark Foley.

The six-term congressman resigned from the House in September after his inappropriate e-mails to young congressional pages came to light. He then entered a rehabilitation facility for alcohol abuse.

The FDLE opened a preliminary inquiry into Foley's conduct shortly after his resignation, and agency spokeswoman Kristen Perezluha said Thursday it has found "a basis to open a criminal investigation."


It’s been the talk of the Blogosphere, this special aired by CNN’s Glenn Beck. I watched it and consider my eyeballs opened.

Tried to Kill Supreme Court Justices With Cookies

Wow, this little tidbit sure flew under the national radar. Seems a kook kept sending letters to Supreme Court justices. Along with her letters she included a few baked good which contained enough rat poison to kill all the Justices!

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Cookies mailed to the U.S. Supreme Court last year contained enough rat poison to kill all nine justices, retired member Sandra Day O'Connor said at a conference last week.

Barbara Joan March, a 60-year-old Connecticut woman, was sentenced last month to 15 years in prison. She sent 14 threatening letters in April 2005 -- each with a baked good or piece of candy laced with rat poison -- to a variety of federal officials: the nine Supreme Court justices; FBI Director Robert Mueller; his deputy; the chief of naval operations; the Air Force chief of staff and the chief of staff of the Army.

March pleaded guilty in March to 14 counts of mailing injurious articles.

Gay Penguins?

Frankly I don’t consider it a coincidence that a book about gay penguins suddenly is getting such attention what with the movie “Happy Feet” getting so much attendance by movie audiences across the fruited plains. As I understand it, this story of dancing penguins came in at number one at the box office this past weekend.

Well can’t have an innocent thing like dancing penguins and laughing children going on without a little input from the homosexual agenda.

cartoon penguin SHILOH, Ill. (AP) - A picture book about two male penguins raising a baby penguin is getting a chilly reception among some parents who worry about the book's availability to children - and the reluctance of school administrators to restrict access to it.

The concerns are the latest involving "And Tango Makes Three," the illustrated children's book based on a true story of two male penguins in New York City's Central Park Zoo that adopted a fertilized egg and raised the chick as their own.

Seems some of the parents of children enrolled in this Illinois school district take exception to this book about two male penguins who adopt and lovingly raise an egg as their own.

The parents only want their children’s access to this book limited. They are not asking the school authorities to REMOVE the book. The flap continues.

I consider it just plain sad that children can’t enjoy an innocent happiness without someone sticking a nefarious political agenda in the middle of the fray.
