Remember last Christmas when the Democrat controlled Senate insisted on passing Obamacare before the break against the will of the people? On November 2nd, those same American people sent the strongest possible message they could to this congress. That message was not only ignored but the response has been to show even further contempt for the people. This lame duck congress is forcing a $1.1 Trillion more spending down the throats of the American people in the form of another 1924 page Omnibus Bill with over 6488 earmarks.

If you thought the debate over the extension of the current tax rates was going to take center stage, think again. This may just go down in history as the most egregious act by the 111th Congress, which is definitely saving the worst for last.

As has become the norm during the Obama administration, the one leader in Congress who continues to do the right thing while holding true to conservative principles is Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC). He, along with Tom Coburn, are going to insist that the bill be read on the Senate floor before it can be passed.

Via Fox News:
"All hell is breaking loose," the source told Fox News, noting that Sens. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Jim DeMint of South Carolina were expected to insist the omnibus bill be read in its entirety by the clerk on the Senate floor before a vote is held. They also were expected to seek debate on all earmarks and any amendments.

If the clerk follows the pace of last year's reading of the health care bill -- 53 pages an hour -- it will take almost 40 hours to read the omnibus bill.
Here is Senator Tom Coburn on Cavuto, talking about this latest monstrosity:

Either Barack Obama has no clue where money comes from and is as intellectually bankrupt as our nation is fiscally or he is intentionally destroying the U.S. economy. After watching this, there can be no doubt it's one of the two. The president of the United States is now on record as saying the best way to boost the economy is to extend unemployment benefits. We heard Pelosi say it and we even heard Keith Olbermann rant about it for well over ten minutes but now we know the captain of the ship is driving that message.

At its core, the premise of this convoluted logic is that the best way to increase production is to pay people not to produce. Here is the relevant quote:
"This tax package does a couple of things immediately for economic growth in Florida. Number one, for those folks looking for work right now, it extends their unemployment benefits. Two million people across the country would lose their unemployment benefits at the end of this month if we did not move forward on this tax agreement. And economists say that not only is that good for those families, it's good for the entire economy. It's probably the biggest boost that we can give an economy because those folks are most likely to spend the money with businesses, and that gives them customers," President Obama told Tampa Bay's Channel 8.
CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO. After watching that nonsense, a Scripture passage came to mind.
ISAIAH 3: 1-4

1 FOR BEHOLD, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, is taking away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff [every kind of prop], the whole stay of bread and the whole stay of water,

2 The mighty man and the man of war, the judge and the [professional] prophet, the one who foretells by divination and the old man,

3The captain of fifty and the man of rank, the counselor and the expert craftsman and the skillful enchanter.

4And I will make boys their princes, and with childishness shall they rule over them [with outrage instead of justice].
For some reason, that just seemed to fit.

If ever there was a case for the Second Amendment caught on video, this is it. The gunman is (was) Clay Duke. His wife was fired from her job with the Bay County Public School District. This prompted Duke to take his gun and show up at a School Board meeting. At multiple points, Duke says 'I'm going to die today' before ultimately opening fire on the man who admitted to being responsible for his wife's firing. Though no one was hit, precious minutes ticked away until a security guard shot Duke, injuring him. The gunman then shot himself.

When seconds and minutes are an eternity apart.
