The Clock is ticking
BP's oil spill
Tick, tick, tick.
A Democratic senator is introducing legislation for a bailout of troubled
union pension funds. If passed, the bill could put another $165 billion in liabilities on the shoulders of American taxpayers.
The bill, which would put the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation behind struggling pensions for union workers, is being introduced by Senator Bob Casey, (D-Pa.), who says it will save jobs and help people.
Unions have been protected by the government bailout of the auto industry and given special status by the Democrats. Now this move by Bob Casey would make the taxpayer the sugar daddy for a select group of people. So when will the government give you and me back what we've lost in this recession?
Another leftist myth bites the dust
"A three-year study by Newcastle University has found that wild birds
are not swayed by the organic label, but instead prefer the more protein-rich, conventional food that will help them to survive the winter.
"Our results suggest that the current dogma that organic food is
preferred to conventional food may not always be true," explains Dr
McKenzie, based in the School of Biology at Newcastle University.
"Protein is an essential nutrient in the diet of all birds and mammals

Another example of Americans being jingoistic and racists? Not really. This poll was conducted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Prof. Peter Showler, director of the Refugee Forum at the University of Ottawa, said it is a “very high Canadian value” to oppose queue-jumping by anyone in the country, including immigrants.
Something different--Limbaugh says something liberals probably support.
Rush Limbaugh mocks Bill O’Reilly in book
"In a new
biography on sale Tuesday, Rush Limbaugh calls fellow conservative talk
show host Bill O’Reilly a “Ted Baxter” — after the fictional character
on the “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” who was portrayed as a vain, shallow,
buffoonish TV newsman."
