A Cook County court ruling against term limits, who'd a thunk it. The Cook County judges have to protect their buds who hand out the graft. I didn't read the opinion so on what basis they ruled the measure didn't meet "constitutional requirements" I don't know. But you can bet the progressive democrats will do everything they can to keep the measure off the ballot because it would…

Bush sat on his thumbs and watched the economy bleed jobs the last few months of his administration. Much of the downturn in the economy can be blamed on a law that Bush and fellow Repubs passed in late Sept 2001, allowing no security/ backing on some bonds. and he started the bank bail out process before he left office.

When I first saw the headline I thought it was a story about the $100,000 club in the Quincy School Board Administration. Well,--- we will catch up with the state soon. I will vote no on new buildings until the Quincy School District pays Admin salaries in line with Quincy industry. Fat chance----- We are paying the superintendent over $200,000 a year?--------Serious?? No,,I mean are you serious…

REBEL MEDIA: Don't take anything for granted

1 month, 2 weeks ago by Bob Gough

“Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?” Ronald Wilson Reagan

Cantor's immigration position didn't help, but this stunner is because he was out of touch with the district that had elected him by rote seven previous times, although his percentage of the vote had dropped in each of the last four general elections. 

On primary election day, Cantor was in Washington D.C., not his home district. Retail Politics 101 is you vote in your home district on election day. You do it if you're from North Dakota and you especially do it when your home state is Virginia, in the shadow of the nation's capital. 

Cantor became the darling of K Street and Wall Street and his constituents were secondary. 

There are many congressmen and senators who deserve Cantor's fate. Those who no longer vote the wishes of the constituents, but vote to secure their power base among the Beltway Elite and their benefactors. They are in both parties.

There are many more bums who need to be thrown out. Don't stop now.
