The United States gives its citizens to opportunity to vote for her leaders. Now is not the time to become complacent! The very future of our nation may depend upon this November’s election! There are numerous examples of elections being determined by one vote – so yes, your vote is important! However, no one can vote unless they are registered and that deadline is fast approaching. Also, being ill or out of town is no reason not to vote – apply for an absentee ballot!!
Congress will be returning to Washington, DC today to begin its lame duck session. As mentioned in a previous alert, much damage can be done during this time period which ends right before Christmas. Although, there is a reported bit of good news in that the Democrats in the Senate have indicated they will not ram through President Obama’s nominee for Attorney General. Not sure if Harry Reid got the message!
The PA House and PA Senate will also be returning to Harrisburg today to wrap up last minute business and vote on new GOP leadership for the two year session.
You can tell a lot about a candidate by who endorses him or her.
One must wonder who is in charge in the United States House of Representatives. In recent days it has been revealed that “currently” Congressmen are not permitted to say “Merry Christmas” or Happy New Year” in any correspondence mailed using taxpayer dollars. It is permissible to say “Happy Holidays” or happy new year, but nothing else is permissible! This is the determination of the “Franking Committee.” So . . . just who/what is the “Franking Committee?”
Yesterday in both the US House and US Senate the so-called “Respect for Marriage Act” was introduced. Its purpose is to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide defender of traditional marriage, notes the oxymoronic title to the bill and warns those 21 federal legislators which represent Pennsylvanians in Washington, DC to have no part of it.
Homosexual activists are touting as a victory yesterday’s US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decision not to hear Bishop Harry Jackson’s appeal in his effort to get the question of the definition of marriage before the people for a referendum vote in Washington, DC.
US District Judge Virginia Phillips decision to stop enforcing the military Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy is beyond her constitutional powers. Article 1, Section 8 gives the power to make rules regulating the military to Congress, not some judge.
US House ignores unit cohesion, military readiness and national security and votes to allow homosexuals to serve openly in the military.
Congress moves closer to making Puerto Rico the 51st state.
