Weekly Wrap-Up

So who’s having a happy holiday season?

Plenty of federal employees, that’s for sure.
According to USA Today, “Federal workers are enjoying an extraordinary boom time — in pay and hiring — during a recession that has cost 7.3 million jobs in the private sector.”

Nancy Pelosi and her allies in Congress are feeling generous. Too bad it’s with OUR money. This is from the LA Times: “Getting into the holiday spirit, the House of Representatives on Thursday approved a spending bill loaded with goodies for the folks back home.”In all, this new spending bill contains 5,224 earmarks. Cost to taxpayers: almost $4 billion.

Funny how The New York Times can’t be bothered to give too much coverage to this latest spending spree, and the “so-called” (
as the Times puts it) earmarks we’re being forced to pay for.

The New York Post likes President Obama’s Nobel acceptance speech – well, most of it, anyway.

Read an excerpt from the speech

Charles Krauthammer
points out that third-world countries and Washington bureaucrats are loving global warming hysteria.

And instead of a partridge in a pear tree, today we have an “eco-vulture” – the infamous George Soros. Charles Hurt from the Post has the story.

I’m sure the liberals and Sen. Max Baucus are happy that the media ignore
the Democrats’ scandals.

The “mainstream” media are also ignoring the true beginnings of the Democrats’ health care agenda. The blueprint for the liberals’ “reforms” was written by Robert Creamer – a convicted felon (tax evasion and bank fraud are his specialties) while he was serving in prison.

Glenn Beck has the story. Tell us what you think about this in our new poll.

I hope you have plenty to be happy about this Christmas season. Have a great weekend!
