This doesn't have a chance in youknowwhere, but still, you should know

House Joint Resolution 5

1st Session

H. J. RES. 5

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.


January 6, 2009

Mr. SERRANO introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:


`The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.'.

Is it any surprise that this sort of thing would come up with Obama in the White House?

Incidentally, Serrano is a Democrat from New York.

No money for New Orleans in "stimulus" package

Gosh, here's a big surprise (not!):
The economic stimulus signed by President Barack Obama will spread billions of dollars across the country to spruce up aging roads and bridges. But there's not a dime specifically dedicated to fixing leftover damage from Hurricane Katrina.

And there's no outrage about it.

Democrats who routinely criticized President George W. Bush for not sending more money to the Gulf Coast appear to be giving Obama the benefit of the doubt in his first major spending initiative.

Obviously, Democrats don't care about black people. (Anyone seen Kayne West around lately?)

Welcome to the Obamessiah's America, Part II

Oklahoma City police officer pulls man over for anti-Obama sign on vehicle
The police officers who stopped Oklahoma City motorist Chip Harrison and confiscated a sign from his car told him he has a right to his beliefs, but the U.S. Secret Service "could construe this as a threat against President Obama," according to the incident report released this morning.

The sign, which read "Abort Obama Not the Unborn," was returned to Harrison later that day, the report said.

Police spokesman Steve McCool said this morning that the sign was taken in error, and Oklahoma City residents should not be worried that their First Amendment rights will be violated. He said a supervisor "intervened and quickly returned the sign" after Harrison called the police department.

The intimidation and harassment continues...

Welcome to the Obamessiah's America

Courtesy KETV 7 in Iowa, via Michelle:
OMAHA, Neb. -- An Iowa State trooper who was investigated after it was shown that he forwarded an e-mail showing mug shots of people wearing Obama t-shirts has been suspended for 30 days.

Sgt. Rodney Hicok was at home and off-duty when he forwarded the e-mails, said an official with the Iowa Department of Public Safety Bureau and Professional Standards.

The e-mail made disparaging remarks about 15 people in the photos and referred to Obama as having "quite a fan base."

Hicok was not making a racial statement, the official said, but, rather, a political statement.

In a statement, Hicok said, "I am deeply sorry for my actions … I apologize to anyone this e-mail may have offended, as well as my family, citizens in my community and Iowa taxpayers."

Hicok ended his statement by saying he guaranteed "nothing like this will ever happen again."

"I regret what happened and wish I could take it back," Hicok said in the statement.

He violated the department's policy and his permanent file will reflect the suspension, the official said.

The 27-year veteran, who has no prior offense on his record, will also attend DPS training on policies and procedures.

There's some key words and phrases in that report: "at home", "off-duty," "Hicok was [making] a political statement."

Just who in the h-e-double-hockey-sticks do these people think they are? To discipline an OFF-DUTY officer who was AT HOME on his OWN COMPUTER? Because he disparaged the Obamessiah's supporters? Where's the ACLU? You'd know they'd have proactively jumped on the case if it had involved disparaging remarks about President Bush.

I am really, really concerned - maybe even a little fearful - about what the next 4 years are going to bring. This trooper's case was not an isolated incident. Add to all these the whole revival of the anti-First Amendment "fairness doctrine" and you've got the makings of a totalitarian society.

And to think people thought (and some still think) Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty Four" would come to life via the right-wing.

GM to create new jobs with stimulus money!

Good news! Oh, wait...

General Motors to Invest $1 Billion in Brazil Operations -- Money to Come from U.S. Rescue Program
General Motors plans to invest $1 billion in Brazil to avoid the kind of problems the U.S. automaker is facing in its home market, said the beleaguered car maker.

According to the president of GM Brazil-Mercosur, Jaime Ardila, the funding will come from the package of financial aid that the manufacturer will receive from the U.S. government and will be used to "complete the renovation of the line of products up to 2012."

Yeah, that will really help the American economy. Thanks, Democrats!
