FYI: Unsuccessful attempts to amend the U.S. Constitution

Since the Looney Left has won and our country is in the process of being run by Looonatics I have decided it’s about time us normal, sane conseratives are edumacated. (ebonics will make a come back now, guess why?) So go read the whole thing and become edumacated. 🙂

From Wikipedia:

The United States Constitution has been amended 27 times since the Constitution was ratified in 1788. Far more proposals to amend the country’s supreme law are unsuccessful.

Up to 200 amendments are typically proposed in Congress each term.[1] But only 33 such proposals in U.S. history (including the 27 that were ratified) have received the two-thirds vote in Congress necessary to present them to the states. The framers intended that it be difficult to change the Constitution, but not so difficult as to render it an inflexible instrument of government. Their prescription drew upon their experience with the Articles of Confederation, which had been the United States’ previous supreme law since 1781, and which required a unanimous vote of 13 states to amend. This unanimity proved impossible to obtain, and the framers therefore laid out a less stringent process for amending the Constitution in Article V.

Daschle to Oversee Obama’s Health Transition Team

Oh come on now I thought we got rid of this idiot. Thanks for the next four years all you left wing wack jobs.

From CNSNews:

An official with President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team says former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle will oversee Obama’s health policy working group.

Daschle had been a close adviser to Obama throughout the Illinois senator’s campaign for the White House. Daschle, who represented South Dakota in the Senate, recently wrote a book on his proposals to improve health care and is working with former Senate majority leaders on recommendations to improve the system.

The official revealed plans for Daschle on grounds of anonymity in the absence of any official announcement. The focus of the working groups is to develop proposals and plans for action for the next administration.

The Republican Party is Clueless

The GOP lost for the same reason I am not a Republican, they have lost their Conservative, Constitutional Foundation
They ran a liberal Republican and got their backside handed to them. Yet they still think just right of center is the way to go? Tim Pawlenty and the GOP did not learn their lesson. They are continuing to talk about inclusiveness over principles.

Hey! Republican Party! Stop trying to win elections and start standing firm on Conservative principles! Their is no need for “Neo-Conservatism” look where that has gotten you, temporary success at winning elections and the people have become disgusted with you.

Illegal immigrants worked at border agency in UK

Seems everyone has border security problems, not just the US of A.

From timesonline

ILLEGAL immigrants have worked as guards for a government body responsible for defending Britain’s borders.

Seven security personnel were found to be carrying forged documents, according to disclosures under the Freedom of Information Act.

One has since been arrested, five have resigned and the other is on maternity leave, while her immigration status is investigated. They were working for HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), which had responsibilities for border security until April.

The news that security issues have been entrusted to illegal immigrants will embarrass the government, which has repeatedly pledged to cut down on illegal working by foreign nationals.

The security staff, employed by a contractor that guarded buildings used by employees of the UK border agency and HMRC, were identified in December last year as carrying documents that were believed to be suspect.

I just love how the rest of the world thinks they have a right to look down their noses at us when it comes to our border security. Not that it’s the best.
