Attic Quote of The Day!
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~
Throughout his term as President, Waldheim and his wife, Elisabeth, were deemed personae non-gratae by many countries. In six years Waldheim made almost no state visits, notable exceptions being Vatican City. As the Attic has printed before, the Vatican has a sordid history of providing a blind eye toward the holocaust, but doesn't object to visits with war criminals and anti-Semites.
Anyone who can substantiate why the United Nations should exist without massive organizational reforms please let us know.
Here's the kicker --->>>The bill would create a powerful "Pelican Commission" controlled by Louisiana residents that would decide which Corps projects to fund, and ordered the commission to consider several controversial navigation projects that have nothing to do with flood protection.
The Corps section of the Louisiana bill, which was supported by the entire state delegation, was based on recommendations from a "working group" dominated by lobbyists for ports, shipping firms, energy companies and other corporate interests.
The Attic would feel much safer if the "Pelicans" were in charge, unfortunately we have two-legged alligators frothing at the mouth over federal money these people believe is their financial piggy bank. Doing the math we're still looking for $33 Billion.
Associated Press Headline:
President Bush is head to Colorado Springs Command Center today and after quick press conference, as he walked away, some moron from the press corps shouts out: "Mr. President, aren't you and your entourage going to be in the way at the command center?" If the President was not anywhere near operations the media bozo's would complain about that!
The Blogosphere at "The Truth Laid Bear" provides us with insight as to where the policitians fatten up the spending bills out of Washington D.C.
Listen up Blanco, Nagin, et al.............That long thumb sticking out between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico called Florida has had seven (7) hurricanes of different categories in the last thirteen (13) months and three (3) this season. A quote from a very competent Governor Jeb Bush in both English and Spanish is this: "We have a plan, which we implement before, during and after a hurricane hits." That's the difference folks. No news from Tallhassee about corruption or FBI searches at this time. Just a plan, one that is actually implemented at all levels of state and local government. No police cars from Florida were seen parked in neighboring states! The Governor is still residing in Florida!
One thing for sure...President Bush always takes the high road, he take responsibility regardless of the partisans criticizing him and never taking responsibility for their liberal ineptness.
Americans should be thankful for one thing. If the Republicans had played politics during World War II the way the Clintons do during the War on Terror, Hitler, Hirohito and Mussolini might have written the history books.
On Judge Roberts:
Here is a fresh quote from the "esteem" mayor of New Orleans, Mr. Nagin. "We gonna rebuild this city, we gonna bring back the culture, we gonna bring back the music, I'm tired of hearing helicopters, I wanna hear jazz!" The Attic can only hope Mayor Nagin was talking about New Orleans and not his new home of Dallas, Texas.
"Once someone else becomes as rich as we are, then whether we have the only big military in the world is their choice, not ours."
"In Washington, it seems, everything is expendable except for the slabs of bacon that are carved out of the federal fisc to ensure re-election."
