Will the Department of Transportation Aid and Abet Criminal Activity?

Sadly it’s pretty consistent with the entire DC philosophy these past two years…

From The Hill’s insightful article “DoT exploring technology that would disable cell phones in cars” we learn that the overpaid Washington mob has nothing better to accomplish then more aggravation and danger upon Americans.

My question is: When would this ever be considered a practical move?

Just a Few Possible Scenarios and Realistic Safety Concerns:

Will the phones be turned off in cars of drivers and all passengers? Hmm… won’t be a selling feature of convenience and gas savings for joining the local carpools!

This also wouldn’t allow a kidnap victim with a concealed cell phone to call out for help? Great… now kidnappers and thugs have an easier control of potential victims immediately.

Police and highway patrol wouldn’t be able to converse with fleeing motorists… remember Al & OJ?

Mom and Dad go out for the evening. Babysitter, Grandma, etc needs to ask Mom or Dad a question… but no phone service for both as they are traveling in the same car?

Witness to a crime or emergency (drunk driver, holdup, fire) and as you are driving alone… you can’t call it in, unless you find a safe place to stop, turn off your car, and get how far away from the vehicle?

If it will turn off, what’s the point of having this “disabler”… but if it is to remain on continuously, what are the long term effects of its exposure to the human body?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Who is Bedding SEIU or is SEIU Bedding Tom Perriello?

Hmm, I received this from a fellow patriot this morning. How interesting? Not only is SEIU working on the voting booths, they are collecting money in a pot for their bedded candidates? Notice bedded not vetted. Case in point – Tom Perriello request:

SEIU

XXXX,

Congressman Tom Perriello is a hero who needs your help.

He was a strong advocate for health care reform, even when others wavered. He tirelessly fights for working people, supporting measures to save jobs.

And that’s why corporate front groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who advocate outsourcing of American jobs and refuse to disclose where their money comes from, are targeting him and spending huge amounts on television for his opponent, Robert Hurt.

We can’t allow these corporate front groups to buy this election.

Tom Perriello needs small voluntary contributions of $10, $20, or $50 to combat the influx of anonymous corporate cash flooding the airwaves: http://action.seiu.org/defendtom

The same corporate sham organizations that supports the outsourcing of American jobs also support candidates like Hurt who oppose unemployment benefits for Virginians looking for work.

As Thomasine Wilson, a a home care worker with SEIU in this district, said: “Times are tough. Dollars aren’t stretching as far as they used to. I know so many in my hometown who are unemployed. Robert Hurt voted against helping those who are trying to find work.”

Right now Tom Perriello is crisscrossing the state, meeting every voter he can. Every moment he spends fundraising to match these corporate groups is a moment he’s not talking to the people who will decide this election.

Making a voluntary contribution not only allows him to spread his message across the state, it also frees up his time to talk to more voters in-person. Contribute now: http://action.seiu.org/defendtom

Thanks,
Jon Youngdahl, SEIU Political Director

White House Garden, Food Safety and the Gift Away

I wonder if the United Nations spouses were given a disclaimer on the gift of canned White House garden food products by the Bogus FLOTUS?

I wonder if the spouses were notified that questions like “Is The White House’s Organic Garden Toxic To Kids?” surround the content of lead in the White House garden:

“…National Park Service found lead in the White House garden soil. In fact, tests found somewhere between 450% and 900% of the normal amount of lead in U.S. soil. The White House did not dispute the findings but defended the lead in the garden, calling it “completely safe.” They are right. Though lead at higher levels can be dangerous, the garden, like the products banned by CPSIA, is well within safety limits. But the White House’s defense rings of self-serving hypocrisy. Where were the White House reassurances when environmentalists were pushing CPSIA restrictions on other fronts?…”

When will the FDA take the amazing step of harassing the White House’s gifting of potentially questionable garden produce? They have no trouble harassing the innocent Amish in Pennsylvania!

Remember When a Safety Record Meant Something… Like Saving Lives!

Remember When An Achievement was Touted and Displayed Proudly

Things you learned in primary school:

Stars Charts and Chore Charts Reward Children for Good Behavior, Learning New Skills, Meeting Goals was an ‘atta’ boy or ‘atta’ girl for daily and long-term self-assessments or for when Mom and Dad viewed on Parent/Teacher Night.

*Clearly similar to daily performance on the job with occasional interaction with superiors*

Then I thought I’d look for an example of a report card. However, I found myself at the National Assessment of Educational Progress The Nation’s Report Card Learner Outcomes (I personally prefer the term students or pupils, consider me old-fashioned, and achievements or scores). I am horrified to see even just this “one report card” that literally has no real stats. Who just threw a bunch of numbers out to see if they would stick? (This example must be for Hard-Core Liberals as it is meaningless)
Case of Adults performing badly!

*Report cards are clearly similar to an overall performance evaluation indicative of a raise or promotion to advance within the employer’s facility*

Kids in school know consequences for bending the rules.

Adults do not seem to have a clue what may result for bending the rules:

Deadly Trend: Disabled Alarms On Gulf Oil Rig, In W. Va. Mine

It might be a good time for a refresher course for adults via All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten.

I’m just saying!

Helen Thomas Announces Her Retirement, Now Who Didn’t See This Coming?

On the heals of Helen Thomas’ radical verbal attack:

and as she is dumped With Regrets.

Hearst Publications provides:

HELEN THOMAS ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

The following story was issued by Hearst News Service today.


HELEN THOMAS ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

WASHINGTON, June 7, 2010 – Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately.

Her decision came after her controversial comments about Israel and the Palestinians were captured on videotape and widely disseminated on the Internet.

Thomas later issued a statement: “I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.’’

Thomas will mark her 90th birthday on Aug. 4.

Army Lt Col Lakin – Will He Receive Justice When Obama Records Will Not Be Produced in Court

BORN IN THE USA?
Army slams door on Obama details
Lt. Col. Lakin hearing: ‘Items pertaining to president’s credentials are not relevant’
via WND.com

How utterly Un-American and Anti-Army of LTC Daniel J. Driscoll. He permits secreting of the Bogus POTUS records therefore he is not defending the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Did he forget his Army Officer Oath of Service? Patton, Eisenhower, MacArthur, Westmoreland,  and most importantly George Washington are rolling over in their graves. Has Driscoll sabotaged Lakin’s defense of the U.S. Constitution? Most assuredly!

Lt. Col. Lakin is 100 times the man, soldier, and officer that – Daniel J. Driscoll could ever be! By the way, if anyone would like to inform – the supplier of aid and comfort to the Bogus POTUS > Driscoll, of their opinion, his email address is prominent on page 4 of this linked court document: Denial of Evidence at LTC Lakin’s Trial.

Driscoll ought to be a train conductor, because he sure enjoys a good railroad!
