Dorothy Korber had this news item in the Sacbee today regarding the building of the Islamic School in Lodi. The County supervisors voted unanimously to overturn their Planning Commission's July approval.
The County supervisors cited land-use concerns and not a federal investigation involving the founders of the school.
Some of the area residents did bring up the terrorist link and who can blame them. I would feel a little leary of one being built next to me. I would worry even more with it being built out in the boonies away from prying eyes. After all Muhammed Adil Khan and Shabbir Ahmed the two men who spearheaded this project were arrested by federal agents and have since been voluntarily deported back to Pakistan.
Pamela Parvez, a Muslim mother from Stockton wept in frustration. She blamed backlash from the FBI investigation for the no vote. "that's what's behind this whole thing'" she said.
Pam if you think its been hard trying to build a Islamic school/worship hall/community center in that corn field try building a Walmart there I assure you the uproar would have been ten times as bad.

Does Supreme Court Justice and part time Howard Stern impersonator Ruth Ginsburg have an agenda? News from Agapepress says its so. Stephen Crampton writes that she does not like being the only female on the court, just"any women will not do"Ginsburg said. "I have a list of highly qualified women, but the president has not consulted me."she quipped. I guess poor George didn't know you were Queen Ginsburg.Ginsburg stated what's important in a nominee she would exclude those "who would not advance human rights or women's rights." So that would me she would support a nominee who would" advance" women's rights. Isn't that an agenda. The Crampton article goes on and is worth the short time to read.

Today in the Drudge Report We find the Babs was given the platform to blather about global warming and again no one calls her on the amount of hurricanes that struck the U.S. during other decades. And because of her vast scientific knowledge also predicted dust bowls and droughts. As all the other celebrity scientist talk about the alarming numbers of hurricanes how come nothing is said about the the other side of the globe regarding typhoons? I guess this just affects our hemisphere

As the anti-war rent a mob comes to Washington many of the top Democrats are leaving. That includes the big dogs of war critics, including Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton, Russ Fieingold and John Kerry, won't attend. I guess they are afraid to be seen or identified with their base. They are really good with the ten-second sound bite, but don't want to be seen in group hugs with the Cindy crowd.
As Tom Andrews, a former Democratic House member from Maine and now director of Win Without War stated "The Democratic Party has an identity crisis on this issue," Andews said. "We need voices. We need leadership. But fear is driving them." Its not fear Tom, its the fact that the majority of this country is not the far left crowd.

Since John Kerrys defeat to George Bush last November, Multi-billionaire George Soros has kept his distance from Democratic campaigning. An article in the The Hill reports that Soros is back in the game. Soros had a gathering of his friends in his home to hear Chucky Schumer chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. The event rasied an estimated $250,000 for Senate Democratic candidates. So now Chucky has linked himself to the George Soros/Howard Dean/Michael Moore/MoveOn.Org element of the Democratic Party

Team Poizner was spotted at a formal democratic fund raiser early last evening. The team was caught by the ever elusive camera of sactodan.

California Politics Today has an article regarding proposition 71 the Stem cell research bill. This is the proposition that promised a return on are $6 billion dollars worth of taxpayer money. Well according to a spokesperson for Debra Ortiz democratic California State Senator and chairperson of California State Senate Health and Human Services Committee says goal of returning money to the State of California from the sale of tax-except stem cell bonds is "unattainable"
California State Treasurer Phil Angelides will not release documents concerning what he knew and when he knew it regarding the impossibility of using tax-exempt stem cell bonds to fund stem cell research that would return money to the State of California, citing "attorney/client privilege"

I remember this argument as one of the cons of prop 71 and it looks like its true.
The big question here is when did Phil Angelides and Steve Westley know about this? Seeing how they were both big promoters of prop 71 which was being sold to voters on the promise of billions on the return of the research.

Mark Matthews reporting for abc7news wonders how Arnold went from being massed at the convention last Sept. to having the same kind of approval ratings as Gray Davis?
Come on Mark you're own report spells it out, BIG UNION! The teachers union, nurses union,SEIU, firefighters union Have organized a huge campaign against him. A lot of the rank and file in the CNA and SEIU in the health care industry of which I'm part are still with Arnold.
And now that Governor Schwarzenegger has backed proposition 75 the rancor will increase.

After reading Sheryl Gay Strolberg's article in the New York Times it seems democratic senators are finding it difficult on how to vote on the nomination of Judge John G Roberts as chief justice. It looks like some of them are more concerned about sending a message then voting on the merit of the man. Senator Clinton was circumspect, saying she would review the transcript. Guess she wasn't paying attention. Chucky Schumer said "I for one, have woken up in the middle of the night, thinking about it, being unsure how to vote." Please spare me the theatrics. And in true liberal fashion Dianne Feinstien said "I'm sorting out what I feel now." Right Di what you feel not what you think.

From ABC News Former finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee Joseph A. Cari pleaded guilty to threatening to bar an investment company from doing business with the Illinois State Teachers Fund unless it agreed to sign a blank contract with consultant based in the Caribbean. Unless he cooperates he faces serious federal jail time.
However, I'm sure someone will blame Bush for that too. Also for some reason the words state teachers pension fund, and democrats = corruption


Secretary Chertoff has given the green light for the completion of a 14 mile fence that runs from the ocean to the Otay Mountain writes Leslie Berestein for the San Diego Union-Tribune The construction of the fence was stopped because of environmental concerns and law suits, but now Chertoff's decision makes the project virtually unchallengeable. Four of the five County Supervisors voted in support of the federal legislation. So what is your opinion on the fence? Is this an abuse of power by Chertoff taking away more freedoms or is this a needed protection to our boarders in this era of terrorism?


With all of the finger pointing and blaming I thought I would like to take time and recognize the true hero's of the disaster. The first everyday hero is Kiby Robinson a resident of Houston Texas. Who in the days after the storm took in his childhood friend and his immediate family, but before it was over had taken in 27 people his story here Or the many doctors that went to Louisiana on their own expense to help were they could read their story here Then read about Erica Wickam and James Mccloud Sometimes hero's show up Now read about 6 y/o Deamonte Love,Jabbar Gibson and Sheriff Warren C. Evans Three Heroes And remember the millions of dollars donated from everyday people So this is one bloger that will only write the good news that comes out of the area. So thank you to all the folks that went out of there way or put themselves in danger or dug a little deeper in their pockets to help someone they will never know. God bless you.

The picture shows that this soldier has been thru Survival School and learned his lessons well. He's giving the sign of "coercion" with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW's as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. This guy was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with Hillary Clinton. It's ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo---perhaps because she's never understood our military to begin with.


A great article by Jack Kelly in debunks the myth that the response to Katrina was slow, while in reality it was faster then the last 5 major storms. Jack Kelly points out that it took five days for National Guard troops to arrive in strength in Homestead Fla. after Hurricane Andrew hit in 2002. But it only took 3 days for troops to arrive after Katrina.
He points out that in the course of a week after the levee breached,1.More then 32,00 people have been rescued, many of them from the rooftops by Coast Guard helicopters. 2. The Army Corps of Engineers had all but repaired the breaches and began pumping water out of New Orleans. 3. Shelter, food and medical care had been provided to more then 180,000 refugees. Jack Kelly goes on to say "
So they libel as a national disgrace the most monumental and successful disaster operation in world history."
So as the Democrats continue to dance on the graves of the dead to try to make political hay out of the disaster, the truth is slowly coming out

At The Home of Uncommon Sense a query was posed if race matters. Well I guess it does if your the Democratic National Committee Chairmen. Howard Dean was blasting Republican priorities and telling black pastors in Miami that race played a "significant role" in the storms death toll. He also stated that Senate Republicans were more interested in repealing the inheritance tax for the wealthiest Americans than in hurricane relief. What the pastors should have asked was why after 30 or more years of democratic rule, why was there so much abject poverty.
After blasting Bush he said he wasn't in Miami to wag "the finger of blame" Dean nevertheless defended New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin. "He's an extraordinary man;he deserves our thanks," Dean said. 'What he doesn't deserve is spin doctors is spin doctors in the republican party attacking him. The president doesn't want to have fights about who to blame, then let's not blame the local people."
Its funny how the party that says its for blacks always find ways to exploit them.
I guess race does matter if your a democrat.


Remember when hurricane Floyd hit the U.S. on Sept 16th 1999? It was the worst storm to hit the U.S. in 25 years. Bill Clintons FEMA was worse after the hurricane then GW's. Clinton had put James Lee Witt in charge of FEMA and he took the heat for the problems then.
A full three weeks after the storm had passed, Rev. Jesse Jackson interviewed Witt on his CNN show "Both Sides Now" - and complained that flood victims were still suffering from a "misery index."
"It seemed there was preparation for Hurricane Floyd, but then came Flood Floyd," Jackson began. "Bridges are overwhelmed, levees are overwhelmed, whole town's under water . . . [it's] an awesome scene of tragedy. So there's a great misery index in North Carolina."
Witt explained that the storms devastation was unparalleled, prompting Jackson to ask what was being done for the thousands of families left homeless by Floyd.
Its funny no one gets the blame when a Democrat is in charge. I guess it was Bush's fault because he was planning to run for president and big oil figured out how to create a hurricane so Clinton would look bad.

Fla. Senator Mel Martinez may be a good choice for GW to put on the Court. I know that Alberto Gonzales is on the short list but some conservatives have expressed reservations about Gonzales moderate judicial views. The Martinez story is a great American dream story. Mel was a refugee from Cuba during operation Peter Pan. He lived with foster parents for four years until he was reunited with his family. He pulled himself up from his boot straps earned a law degree and won a top Fla senate seat. He was also in the first Bush administration as HUD secretary . The President has been aggressively courting the Hispanic vote-and appointing Martinez would be a major step in cementing that relationship.Martinez, a trial attorney by background, is known as a conservative who is also solidly pro-life in his views.
As for a Senate battle over his possible nomination, Martinez should get deferential treatment. When the president named him to the HUD post, for example, he was unanimously confirmed by the Senate.

As a member of the "club" of the Senate, it is doubtful he would get "Borked," even from the likes of Ted Kennedy and Chuck Schumer.

And with Republican governor Jeb Bush sitting in Tallahassee and able to appoint a successor to fulfill Martinez's term, the GOP would be able to hang onto his Senate seat to boot.

With all the finger pointing going on regarding the devastation from Katrina I went looking at the funds that go to the U.S.Army Corps of Engineers and were it is spent. I was amazed to learn that congress has approved so many pet projects that there is a backlog of unfunded projects totaling $38 billion. And the Corps earmarks $2billion a year for new construction, that means it would take about 19 years just catch up if no new projects were approved by congress.
The New Orleans budget itself was $343.5 million a year. Were does the money go? Who decides what local projects get the funds. It looks like a lot of the money went to keeping union officials and party bosses happy. Stephen Jeselink, interim commander of the New Orleans Corps District when faced with a budget of only $272.4million (down 20million) he put in a hiring freeze and canceled the annual picnic. It must have been one hell of a picnicWell its time to end the free lunch on the taxpayers money.


In response to helping get rid of Sudam and giving them back their country Kuwait is giving us ...0 Except some harsh words from a Kuwaiti official The story comes from NewsMax The official goes on to say how Katrina was sent by Allah. And how the disaster will keeping striking the unbelievers for what they have done. That's gratitude for you,the next time another Arab neighbor wants some beach front property let them have it.

Reading Steve Lawrence article in the SacBee regarding the passing of the gay marriage bill I kind of feel what's the point. What's the point of any proposition that the people vote for when activist judges and pandering politicians ignore the majority. And please don't tell me about the majority of people in the south wanted to keep segregation,Blah,Blah, Blah. I get sick and tired of hearing the gay rights issue compared to the civil rights movement of the 60's its not even close. Sen. Jackie Speier,D-Hillsorough said " This is probably the most profound civil rights movement of our generation, without a doubt" I think this demeans the memory of those that suffered and gave up their lives throughout that period of time and continue up to today.
Well the barbarians are at the gate, and seeing how are vote was turned over I see an increasing irrelevance of democratic government being replaced with a bureaucratic and judicial government. Today marriages is no longer special or unique its what ever you want it to be. Well what's the next big gay agenda?

As always what's bad for the U.S. is good news for the left Sidney Blomenthal a former assistant and senior advisor for Bill Clinton has written a hit piece published in Der Spiegel A German news magazine. In the article he goes on and on as how President Bush is to blame for the devastation in New Orleans. One of the reasons he sites is a proposed study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that was halted by Bush. The study was how New Orleans could be protected from a catastrophic hurricane. Well I don't know if that is true, but I do know that it would have taken more than a dam year to do all that Sidney! You dolt Sidney even reports that The United Nations special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa accused the Bush administration of responsibility for a condom shortage in Uganda. In this hit piece Bush gets blamed for Katrina, no condoms in Uganda and global warming
