Since Shelby's birthday party is Saturday so tomorrow I'm having a Useful Day of Usefulness. I'm going to...

- Go to Target for coffee and cereal
- Go to Raleys for milk
- Clean the hell out of this place
- Wash sheets
- Clean bathroom again

I think that's enough, don't you?

Stop the transfer of terrorist detainees



STOP the Transfer of Terrorist Detainees

If you are an American who does not support the transfer of detainees from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GITMO) to American soil, please sign the petition below and support my amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010. I will make sure that the Senate Majority and Minority leaders see this petition and are aware of your positions on this important national security matter. Please know, I will continue fighting to expose the truth about GITMO and the consequences of proceeding with shutting it down, and I will work endlessly to convince my Democrat and Republican colleagues to stand up to the President by supporting my amendment.

PETITION

I am one of the many Americans that does not support the transfer of detainees from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to the United States. I believe transferring terrorist detainees to the United States threatens our national security and could afford these terrorists with constitutional rights reserved for U.S. citizens – risks the U.S. should not be willing to take.

There are a majority of Americans that stand by me: a recent USA Today/Gallup Poll reported that by more than 2 to 1, Americans say the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility should not be closed and by more than 3 to 1, Americans oppose moving some of the accused terrorists to prisons in their own states. In addition, 27 states have passed measures that would prevent detainees from being sent to their states. These numbers should not be ignored.

Because of my position on closing GITMO, I support Senator Inhofe's amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 that prevents the Obama administration from transferring terrorist detainees to the United States. I hope you will support this amendment as well.

Puke.

For some strange reason, I'm watching Obama's (half-hour late) presser. Here's the translation:

"Everybody wants health care reform! We've managed to squeeze lots of money out of the pharm companies and hospitals. I mean, everyone knows that they don't need to make a profit. Also, nurses and doctors associations want reform! Woohoo! We all agree that health is good and paperwork is bad. If my wondrous plan passes, your life will be better.

"Oh, but we sort of have to pay for it, right? I mean I already have created such a huge debt, I guess it would be a bad idea to add even more to it. Congress is working really really hard to figure this out, so you can just stop thinking about it.

"By the way, under this plan, the government is going to decide what the "best" care is. We're going to put together a board of "medical experts" who will decide if what your doctor wants to do to cure you is "wasteful" or not.

"[Stupid race-running analogy.]

"If we don't do this, our children are going to be in-- um, even MORE in debt! We can't control government spending anyway! If we don't do this, no one will have insurance they can afford! And if you are against my plan YOU KICK PUPPIES AND STEAL FROM CHILDREN!

"I'm going to work my staff to the bone until they figure this mother out.

No questions."
