What Is Stabenow Afraid Of–Voters?
She should be. She is the Chair of the Agriculture Committee in the Senate, the most liberal Senator of all 100, and she votes with environmentalists 100% of the time. Which of these things don’t go together?
The National Farm Bureau is very opposed to the ever-increasing power of the EPA, and they are more pro-active about it than ever before. But then, the strangulation of farming interests and industry by the EPA created that friction.
Yet Stabenow probably believes she has covered all of her bases in her cover amendment to the small business bill. She delays the EPA from regulating carbon dioxide (needed for all living things to exist) for two years, enough time to get herself re-elected, and exempts farmers from dealing with the EPA’s stringent rules on emissions from equipment. But farmers are not stupid, carving them out of certain regulation only works a short while.
Most farmers see radical environmentalists as people with too much time on their hands and uptight. They have no understanding of nature, the natural ebb and flow of God’s earth, as most farm families do. And when the agenda of these types of environmental do-gooders makes them have to work harder on their own property and makes their budgets bust, they tend to become very opposed to any politician who sides with this radical group.
Isn’t that what Debbie Stabenow is doing? Siding with the unrealistic and utterly ludicrous suggestions made by the EPA? When they have no say in it at all except to sue through the Farm Bureau? First of all, Stabenow wanted an amendment of her own because she couldn’t get anywhere with her friends who gave her the 100 LCV(League of Conservation Voters) score if she voted along with McConnell’s amendment. But that is exactly what farmers want her to do. They want her to stop the EPA from implementing rules that are unchecked by Congress. If she doesn’t vote with McConnell, she will be telling them that their votes do not count, that they don’t get representation in Congress, and that she is representing the EPA, not them.
Who are the best conservationists? It’s not the LCV, it’s the farmers, the ranchers, the hunters! Not these uptight, micro-managing, soft-handed environmentalists.
The radical environmentalists tell us that to vote against an over-reaching EPA is to please “corporate masters.” But the opposite is true.
The American Farmer, Miner, Factory Worker, Trucker, Lineman, most skilled tradesmen are being attacked by the EPA. It is our jobs that are in danger if the EPA has it’s way. We are the ones who will inevitably lose our professions if the EPA can use it’s power to regulate business, and our air for pete’s sake. The EPA wishes to regulate our very air. Enough!
That’s why moderate Democrat voices are voting with McConnell R-KY (if Reid ever allows a vote) and Manchin D-WV. Stabenow will create a force to put her out of office if she continues palling around with radical environmentalists.
When it comes time to campaign in 2012, who would you trust to understand who to vote for? A politician who represents the EPA? Or a farmer who knows a thing or two about nature.

Mark Levin Gives Unvarnished Truth
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans."It always amazes me the sheer number of women who defend abortion. Legal abortion has killed 52 million innocents since '73, that means 26 million roughly, were women.

I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.
Snyder said Wednesday that he unconditionally supports expanding the state's Medicaid rolls by roughly 470,000 people. There are 1.9 million people receiving benefits now.
"We're all here to support expanding Medicaid," Snyder said at a news conference called by a large coalition of groups that support the expansion. "We're moving forward with care for people who need it."
The ever-illogical argument that insuring more people will actually cost less. "But health care providers and advocates for the uninsured argue that the state will actually save money -- as much as $1 billion in the first decade -- if fewer residents have to rely on expensive emergency room facilities to address non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries."
Susan Dumass is really quite pedestrian. "The only thing standing in between 450,000 low-income Michiganders and health insurance is Tea Party Republicans' deep-seated hatred of Obamacare."
This week, Michigan’s Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his state’s health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administration’s strong recommendation.
Now that he's made the decision, Snyder must sell the plan to the state legislature, where some members of his own party have repeatedly attempted to distance themselves from the faintest whiff of "Obamacare."
- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.
