In the House of Representatives Tell the Truth ~ Penalty Phase… But Circumvent or Break Laws ~ It’s All Good

Remember This?

Speaker Pelosi agrees to plan to scold Rep. Wilson for ‘You lie’ outburst so then the House punishes Wilson in a seven day turnaround from act to motion.

Fast Forward to This:

Rangel May Just Get Slap On Wrist on these Ethics Charges presented in doc form on June 17, 2010 and the investigation has been ongoing for years.

It’s not who you know… it’s what you know about who!



The “Obamanation” Continues the Lying Discourse Regarding Immigration, Arizona, and John Kyl

Which is more realistic – that Senator Kyl decided to go rogue at a small meeting with no professional news media in attendance or…

…that Obama lies again?

Logic dictates that since the administration wants to initiate a lawsuit against Arizona regarding Constitutional and State immigration laws and that the 1200 National Guard have never appeared as promised back in May, it tends to validate Senator John Kyl’s statement. No Matter How the White House Spins It!

Look at each man’s record of honesty and patriotism as well.

Senator John Kyl you make me smile 🙂 You are a Hero, Patriot and Statesman!

You are in excellent company as well:

Supreme Court Justice Alito~
Judge Alito correctly mouths, “Simply not true.”

Representative Joe Wilson~
Heckler At Obama Speech to Congress: ‘You Lie!’

White House tapes anyone? anyone?

Obama you may feign anger with your classless comment, but the American People are appalled by your continual failures and all faults land squarely upon your opaque “transparent” shoulders. 1 1/2 months later the United States of America is accidentally notified of additional leaks. Has it been all about the MONEY?

Joe Wilson “IS” and “WAS” Right…….. “YOU LIE”

There’s more leaks. When will the White House come clean? What’s the Plan? You fools have fooled around long enough in DC!


No Salt is the Newest Assault Upon America

Okay, whose bright (sarcasm) idea was this – “Nanny State Looks to Ban Salt in NY“?

Salt is required to bake breads, cakes, pies, rolls, pizza.
Salt is required for fudge.
Salt makes the best accent on Margaritas.
There’s no soup without salt.

Legitimate Reasons for Salt “Salt -The Spice of Life

Looks to me like some idiots are assaulting the restaurant business now and purposely! These little digs flying all over the country remind me that the political machine attempts to play games at every opportunity. Nothing like a good distraction.

Hmm the “Lowering Salt in Your Diet” at the FDA, U S Food and Drug Administration site has an interesting link at the bottom:

For More Information

The second link takes you to Project: Strategies to Reduce Sodium Intake……… hmm? is New York the test dummy site opportunity until the money and time runs out?

Here’s an interesting study “Iodine deficiency diseases in Switzerland one hundred years after Theodor Kocher’s survey: a historical review with some new goitre prevalence data“.

I wonder if the one US study has looked at the long history of Iodine/Salt usage or the Swiss study? Could this be a way to increase health problems for Americans?

Justin Wilson must be rolling over in his grave –

New Orleans Cajun, Justin Wilson – Gumbo

The man was a master of Cajun Cooking and no one was better measuring out a teaspoon of salt!
