Friday Night Thoughts

I was sitting here relaxing tonight, when I heard that Nancy Pelosi will be putting HR 3962 up for a vote sometime this weekend. Wonderful, it’s not like I had planned a busy weekend bird watching, stopping by the Instant Tea tomorrow, or celebrating my wife’s birthday either. Sheesh. Thanks Nancy.

Thought #1

There was a “house call” in Washington yesterday and thousands of protestors showed up again to protest the current health care reform bill. It seems some of the protestors that showed up in Washington couldn’t control themselves and got themselves arrested.

The health care debate got ugly in Washington this morning. Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman was the target of protesters today — some of whom were arrested.

The protests took place in the waiting area of Lieberman’s office inside the Hart Office Building.

About 20 protesters, carrying signs, took over the waiting room, many sitting on the floor. They told police they were not taking over the office, but rather waiting to see the senator.

Before I go any further, let me make something clear. It was not these protestors,

or these protestors.

In fact, the only protestors who got arrested were those who showed up to protest the fact that Rep. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) said he would take part in a Republican filibuster of any health care bill he does not agree with. These protestors were not part of the ‘House Call’.

Thought #2

This is President Obama’s economy now.

Thought #3

Have you pondered the actual costs of the health care proposals in the House?

Thought #4

When has Nancy Pelosi actualy kept a promise she made?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD that the speaker will not allow the final language of the health care to be posted online for 72 hours before bringing the bill to a vote on the House floor, despite her September 24 statement that she was “absolutely” committed to doing so.

Thought #5

Some stories do have a happy ending.

A 1965 Volkswagen van stolen 35 years ago in Spokane, Washington, was found by customs agents in a shipping container in the Los Angeles port last month, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection official said.

The original owner should get the vehicle back, if you ask me.
