Live Blogging: The Senate Debate on Alito Confirmation

11:39 am...Tanked Up Teddy is currently on the floor of the Senate. In spite of all that he has heard in the Senate Committee he continues to imply that Judge Alito is incapable of being impartial.

I think it is you, Teddy who is incapable of judging impartially and thus it is hard for you to imagine that anyone could be a fair minded judge. It called projection. The favorite defense mechanism of the Democrats who they have no logical reason for opposing someone.

11:43 am...Dick Durbin has the task of futhering the argument that the seat that Judge Alito is about to take is the seat of Sandra Day O'connor and must be replace by a known moderate. (yawn)

Durban calls O'connor a Goldwater Conservative! Oh!
Doesn't Goldwater brings to mind States Rights, the debate which shifted the Civil Right community towards the Democrats and what we now know was Liberal-welfare oblivion for the country.

You have to give these losers credit. Once they decide on a losing strategy, they don&#…

REPUBLICAN'S FUNDRAISING CATCHES UP TO DEMOCRAT IN SENATE RACE

Steele Fundraising Catches Up to Rival in Maryland Senate Race
Sunday, January 22, 2006

By Jared S. Hopkins



WASHINGTON — Maryland Republican Senate candidate Lt. Gov. Michael Steele might have entered an election race six months after his main political rival, but he has made strong — and lucrative — strides.

In the race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Paul Sarbanes, D-Md., Steele is closing the gap with Baltimore Democrat Rep. Ben Cardin. Steele raised about $50,000 more than Cardin during the last quarter of 2005, according to reports released by the campaigns. Final reports for all Senate candidates are due by Jan. 31.

Steele has raised $1.27 million since he joined the race in October and in the fourth quarter took in $853,000, according to Lenny Alcivar, Steele campaign spokesman.

Though Steele has raised less than half of Cardin's total, he added 1,330 donors during the quarter and now has 5,300. Cardin has just over 4,000, 70 percent of whom are from Maryland with about 1,600 of th…

President Bush Reaffirms US Commitment to Peace in Sudan

The absence of the Democrat's support when a genocide is being committed is par for the course? But you just wait until a camera shows up and you'll see Democrats...a rhyming and foaming at the mouth to condemn the government of Sudan.

Alas, there is no photo opportunity and we all know where the Democrats are when the hard work needs to get done.

Steelers Win Super Bowl!

Steelers Win Super Bowl!

Steelers win is what you will be hearing on February 5, 2006. The Steelers are the first team to beat the 1, 2 and 3 seeded teams to get to the Super Bowl, all while on the road. They are also on a tear winning their last 6 games.

Seahawks, no doubt, are the best team in the NFC while being number 1 while making their way through the playoffs, beating a weak Washington team and a one man team Carolina. All the while, the are the 6th seed in a much tougher division who get to Detroit by beating the Cincinnati Bengals, the best team in the league, in Indianapolis, and then went up to Mile High to beat Denver.

Seahawks ranked 4th in total offense while Steelers are ranked 7th. But the key as we all know is defense Steelers are ranked 3rd in the entire league while Seattle is ranked 15th.

During the regular season, Seattle's two losses that count are to teams ranked in the top ten, Jacksonville (ranked 7) and Washington (ranked 9). The two other…

RACE BAITING, OR FEAR OF THE BLACK REPUBLICAN

Wikipedia defines racebaiting as the act of using racially derisive language, actions or other forms of communication to anger or intimidate a person or groups of people, or to make those persons behave in ways that are inimical to their personal or group interests.

Have you heard the latest in ? New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin(D)wants a "Chocolate City". Okay, you say that's old news. But did you also hear that Crazy Ray won the Mayoral race with 90% of the White vote and 10% of the black vote! Very interesting.

This might explain his lackluster performance during the Katrina disaster, or in Kanye West's words, "Ray Nagin don't care about black people". And now that everyone knows what to expect from Running Ray in a pinch, the only community where he can garner support is in the Kanye West community of bigotry. And you now know what you have to do to get them to vote for you. You know what I mean?

Mike Shanahan is Over!

Image
Mike Shanahan is not over in Denver; however Shanahan Canton chances are looking awfully dim.

If Mike Shanahan had retired with John Elway there as almost no doubt that he would be going to the Hall-A-Fame. The downfall in the playoffs have more and more people saying that Mike Shanahan can not do anything without his supporting cast, especially with the losses John Elway and Alex Gibbs.

Mike Shanahan will probably stay with Denver until he retires since it was his first team in 84 as he was their Receives Coach before becoming their Offensive Coordinator the next year. Mike Shanahan has spent a total of 18 years with Denver with 10 year as the head coach. True, Shanahan has only known 1 losing season as the Broncos Head coach in 99 but had 2 in Los Angels in 88 and 89.

Since the two Super bowl wins Shanahan is (1-4) in the playoffs with the wins Shanahan is (8-5). In less Shanahan goes and wins another Super bowl it is improbable that the once loved coach in the Milehigh will not be lov…

WELCOME THE IRONFIST!

Today is an exciting day here at My Right Mind. Ironfist, a new contributor to MRM, has penned his first post, entitled "where's my gun there is a Pimp?"
Ironfist is my brother and Defense attorney in Atlanta, Georgia. I'm sure you're going to find his commentary stimulating and challenging.

If you like his post, let him hear from you. Welcome Ironfist!

Where's My Gun, There is a Pimp!

There is a clear and definite connection between Mayor Nagin of the city of New Orleans and Senator Hillary Clinton from the Great State of New York. They both subscribe to a time that is long since past and hangs over Americans like a pall. We can not forget, we can not overcome and with every step to progress to adulthood there are those who can not get beyond themselves and will not allow the rest of us to move ourselves or our country forward. The plantation is a clear event of the past with chocolate city pitchers of Soul City failures to comprehend the reality that Black, African Americans, people of color want what every other American wants, to be treated as an American with an equal share in the dream.

Please, someone tell that the abolitionist movement is over and the NAACP now has black leadership. The Republican party is now a viable alternative to the Democratic welfare state that has created a near permanent black economic under class. The Great Society was not gr…

Fears of Black Republicans Spurred Hillary's Racist Remarks

I just found this article by Dick Morris. So if you thought my article denouncing Hillary as a racist and a slimeball was beyond the pale, read this....


Fears of Condi Spurred Hillary's Racial Remarks

Dick Morris

Sources close to New York civil rights leader Rev Al Sharpton tell me that Hillary used his annual Martin Luther King Day forum to liken the House Republican majority's conduct of the House of Representatives to a "plantation" because she fears a Sharpton challenge in the 2008 Democratic Presidential Primary.

Hillary also fears that if Sharpton were to challenge her, it could weaken her in a possible contest against Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in the fall, if Rice were to be the GOP nominee.

"She is afraid of Condi," one of Sharpton's key people said.

"She did not attend Sharpton's annual King Day celebration last year or the year before even though she was invited," he added.

"Now she comes, all of a sudden, and makes a mi…

Peggy Noonan on the Decline of Liberalism

Not a Bad Time to Take Stock
Thoughts on the decline of the liberal media monopoly and the future of the GOP.

Friday, January 20, 2006 12:01 a.m.

I don't think Democrats understand that the Alito hearings were, for them, not a defeat but an actual disaster. The snarly tone the senators took with a man most Americans could look at and think, "He's like me," and the charges they made--You oppose women and minorities, you only like corporations and not the little guy--went nowhere. Once those charges would have taken flight, would have launched, found their target and knocked down any incoming Republican. Not any more. It's over.

Eleven years ago the Democrats lost control of Congress. Then they lost the presidency. But just as important, maybe more enduringly important, they lost their monopoly on the means of information in America. They lost control of the pipeline. Or rather there are now many pipelines, and many ways to use the information they carry. The other day…

First Lady Assails Sen. Clinton for Remark

Laura Bush gets it....

ABUJA, Nigeria -
Laura Bush criticized Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday for suggesting that the Republican-controlled House is run like a plantation where dissenting voices are ignored.

"It think it's ridiculous — it's a ridiculous comment," Mrs. Bush told reporters when asked about the remark during a return flight to Washington following her four-day swing through West Africa.

Clinton made the comment in Harlem at an event honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. She said the GOP was running the House "like a plantation" because ideas from the minority Democrats were not respected. The White House on Tuesday called the senator's comments "way out of line."

It seems to me that conservatism must be making inroads into the black community. What make me believe this is happening. High profile Democrats, like Hillary Clinton are starting to use race baiting tactics to keep blacks in line and on the team. It time to jump…

SINGLE PARENT HOUSEHOLDS NOT THE PATH TO WEALTH

Staying married has its benefits, especially financial, as a new U.S.-wide study shows the wealth of a married person is almost double that of somebody who is single.

Divorce among U.S. baby boomers reduced personal wealth by about 77 percent compared to that of a single person, while the financial standing among those who remained married almost doubled, according to a nationwide study released this week.

"If you really want to increase your wealth, get married and stay married. On the other hand, divorce can devastate your wealth," said Jay Zagorsky, author of the study and a research scientist at Ohio Sate University's Center for Human Resource Research

MENTAL HICCUPS FROM MRM

NEW ORLEANS MAYOR SAYS GOD MAD AT U.S.

Mayor Ray Nagin suggested Monday that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and other storms were a sign that "God is mad at America" and at black communities, too, for tearing themselves apart with violence and political infighting.

"Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country," Nagin, who is black, said as he and other city leaders marked Martin Luther King Day.

"Surely he doesn't approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We're not taking care of ourselves."

Nagin also promised that New Orleans will be a "chocolate" city again. Many of the city's black neighborhoods were heavily damaged by Katrina.

"It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans — the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans," the mayor said. "This city will be a majority African …

PREDICTIONS FOR 2006

One of my favorite blogs, Warrior Class has some predictions for 2006...
Five Predictions for the New Year Guaranteed to Start Bar Fights
January 4th, 2006

1. New York Times Exposes “Illegal” U.S. Spying On Iranian Nuclear Program: New York Times article exposing US efforts to keep tabs in Iranian nuclear development will question whether such activity is legal under international law. US is accused trampling on the rights of foreign leaders.
2. Judge Declares the Constitution’s Definition of “Treason” as Unconstitutional: A judge will rule in NY Times case that the terms “aid and comfort to the enemy” are too vague to pass constitutional muster. Her ruling points out that Supreme Court Justice Jackson’s famous statement in 1949 that “the Constitution is not a suicide pact” was part of a minority opinion.
3. Challengers to Hillary for Democratic Presidential Nomination Become Embroiled in Scandal: Several top contenders for the Democratic nomination will have scandals come to light about t…

STERN GETS PAID... WHAT HE'S WORTH!

While some seek the insecurity of hourly wage, Shock Jock Howard Stern finds wealth getting paid for the results of his own efforts.

The Associated Press

NEW YORK - Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. will give Howard Stern 34 million shares of stock worth about $220 million at today's prices because the company has met agreed-upon targets for gaining new subscribers under its 2004 deal with the shock jock.

In a regulatory filing Thursday, Sirius said its subscriber count as of Dec. 31, 2005, exceeded the target it had agreed upon with Stern in October 2004, when it made a five-year deal with him.

At the time, Sirius said its deal with Stern would be worth about $100 million per year beginning in 2006. The 34.4 million shares were worth about $110 million then, but the stock has roughly doubled since then.

Stern begins his new show on Sirius on Jan. 9, having left his longtime employer Infinity Broadcasting, which has been renamed CBS Radio, a unit of CBS Corp.

Last month the former president o…

HAPPY NEW YEAR - ATLANTA STYLE!

The New Year is a great time to set new goals, and
also to look at the year behind us to reflect on our progress
and our accomplishments. Personally, I am very excited
about 2006 and all of the potential that it holds! I hope
this post finds you feeling the same :-)

It's a busy time - a time to take stock of what we
have, what we need, and what we want to do next. It's a good
time to tie up loose ends and to get things in order
so that we can kick off a New Year with a fresh dose of
motivation.

Here's Wishing You a Very Happy & Profitable New Year!
