BREAKING: The light at the end of the tunnel… 30 Dec 2010 @ 07:07Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Breaking News , add a comment
…possibly has been turned back on. Check this one out.
Incoming House Speaker John Boehner and his Republican colleagues are acutely aware of public anger over how Congress operates… and plan to do something about it.
“They see a government in Washington that isn’t listening, doesn’t get it, and frankly the American people think that Washington doesn’t really care,” Boehner recently said.
And Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) says, “I was elected with a mandate to change the status quo. We have to change the way we do business in Washington.”
So when Republicans take control of the House, they want to implement some new rules.
Well, as several of the commenters mention, this sounds good but I’ll believe it when I see it.
But these paragraphs right here give me the most hope that change is coming. REAL change and not the Jugears McHopenchange variety.
Republicans will also require lawmakers to take another step, says Jason Chaffetz. “When you submit your piece of legislation, you’re gonna actually have to cite constitutional authority for that bill.”
In fact, Republicans plan to read the constitution on the floor when they return next week.
And that’s only the beginning. They also want hearings to expose the details of any regulations proposed by the administration that are not specified in legislation approved by Congress.
Looks like the radar teams here at the Southern Command have a new target to track in the new year. If Boehner, Chaffetz, and other freshman reps can do what they are saying here it actually could be interesting to watch C-SPAN again. Just for the chance to see the progressives go into apoplectic shock.
Not in this man’s military 28 Dec 2010 @ 16:36Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Gubmint, Military , add a comment
Saw this on David Barton’s “Wallbuilders” FB page.
Seems that the repeal of DADT in the military is having its intended affect. Reducing the the American military eventually to a collection of pansy-arsed enviroweenies.
But not in THIS mans’ military. While it sucks that a LTCol is choosing to retire rather than force his troops into the mandated homosexual indoctrination sessions, his reasoning is 100% sound IMHO. I knew something like this was coming when the talk of Al-Obambi & Co. hit that they were going to repeal the regulation.
The wussification of this country is now complete, thanks to the “progress”-ives.
Folks, if you haven’t gotten them already it’s really past time to do it. Take your
4th 2nd [Fixed. -Venomous] Amendment RIGHTS straight to the gun shop and SPEND. Be sure to get plenty of ammo too, you’re gonna need it!

Coming from a metropolis FULL of rocket scientists as we are here in the Southern Command, this one DOES NOT TAKE ONE IOTA of brain power to understand.
SITYS as the great El Rushbo says…
Is it 2012 YET???
