Jon Porter (R-NV03) - Worst Person In The World

CongrASSman Jon Porter (R-NV03) was named "Worst Person In The World" today by Keith Olbermann on Countdown... See - I'm not the only one!!!

Here is why.... Las Vegas Review-Journal. More proof he has his head up his ass.

Gasoline prices could rise to about $9 per gallon if the United States withdrawstroops from Iraq prematurely, Rep. Jon Porter said he was told on a trip to Iraq that ended this week.

The Nevada Republican, who returned Tuesday from his fourth trip to Iraq, metwith U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker, Iraqi Deputy President Tariq al-Hashimi and Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Barham Saleh.

"To a person, they said there would be genocide, gas prices in the U.S. would rise to eight or nine dollars a gallon, al-Qaida would continue its expansion, and Iran would take over that portion of the world if we leave," Porter said Wednesday in a phone interview from Las Vegas.

Porter did not elaborate on the assessment that gasoline prices could spike. His spokesman, Matt Leffingwell, said afterward that the scenario "makes sense if Iran moves into Iraq."Porter "can't speculate directly on what is going to happen with gas prices, but the market prices for oil reflect the stability in that region," Leffingwell said.

Senator Dodd Responds to HRC/Logo Forum

Here are some of the question and answers (full questions and comments here):



Chris Dodd answers questions that were asked at
the Human Rights Campaign and LOGO debate concerning the GLBT
community.


1. Do you understand the special needs of people in gay and
lesbian couples who cannot depend on their partners’ insurance for protection
because they are not a legal spouse? What would you do about
this?
I believe that every American, regardless of race, age,
income, or sexual orientation, is entitled to high quality health care. That is
why I cosponsored the Domestic Partner Health Benefits Act. This is also why I
have introduced a health care plan that provides access to proper care for all
Americans. My health plan will create a health insurance marketplace called
Universal HealthMart that is based on, and parallel to, the Federal Employees
Health Benefits Plan (FEHBP). Individuals and businesses will contribute to
Universal HealthMart based on their ability to pay. Premiums will be affordable
based on leveraged negotiating power, spreading risk, reduced administrative
costs, and incentives for technology and preventive care. Coverage will be
portable – insurance purchased in Universal HealthMart will follow individuals,
not jobs.
My plan will phase in universal, affordable coverage to all
Americans over four years. No one will be forced into Universal HealthMart. If
they wish, employers and individuals can maintain their existing insurance
arrangements. This plan is easy to accomplish because the model and
infrastructure for the plan, the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHBP) plan,
already operates in every county in the country.
Another significant feature
of my health plan is that coverage is available for all Americans regardless of
employment status, health status or income level. Individuals pay for coverage
within Universal HealthMart based on their ability to pay and the insurance
industry will be forced to end price and coverage discrimination against people
based on prior conditions.

3. Why should the gay community believe that Democrats will fight
for us, after allowing us to be used by the Republicans as a scare tactic in
2004 and after the Clinton administration failed to follow through with campaign
promises to us?
I have been a supporter of the GLBT community
throughout my career, and in the White House I will be able to do even more to
advance issues important to this community. My record shows consistent
commitment to the advancement of GLBT issues. I am proud to have fought long and
hard to pass the Family and Medical Leave Act, and I will fight again to extend
this legislation to cover same-sex couples. I have supported legislation to
expand the definition of hate crimes to include gender, sexual orientation, and
disability. I cosponsored the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. I have
supported and continue to support equal rights for domestic partnerships. I was
an original co-sponsor of the Ryan White CARE Act and believe in working to
restore this bill to its original purpose of promoting HIV/AIDS prevention. I
will repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. I have spent a great deal of time on these
issues, and in the White House I would continue to fight for you.

13. Would you put someone in a position of power who is known to be
anti-gay?
No. I would not put someone in a position of power who
would discriminate, or be outwardly hostile, against another based on race,
ethnicity, age, gender or sexual orientation.

Does this mean Bush/Cheney will attack Italy???

Or will Chuckle-nuts try to seize all of Italy's assets though an Executive Order???

Washington Post:

PERUGIA, Italy -- In a hidden corner of Rome's busy Fiumicino Airport,
police dug quietly through a traveler's checked baggage, looking for smuggled
drugs. What they found instead was a catalog of weapons, a clue to something
bigger.
Their discovery led anti-Mafia investigators down a monthslong trail
of telephone and e-mail intercepts, into the midst of a huge black-market
transaction, as Iraqi and Italian partners haggled over shipping more than
100,000 Russian-made automatic weapons into the bloodbath of Iraq.
As the
secretive, $40 million deal neared completion, Italian authorities moved in,
making arrests and breaking it up. But key questions remain unanswered.

Bedtime.....


Bedtime for me... The kids will be watching over things while I get some shut eye!!!

Bush's Turd-blossom to Resign!!!

It's 3:30AM West Coast time... Just heard on The Young Turks that Rove has resigned - his last day will be August 31st. MSNBC has the story. Let's see if he pulls a Harriet Miers when it comes to answering to the House and Senate!!!

Just watched the HRC/LOGO Visible Vote 08 Forum

Just watched the HRC/LOGO Visible Vote 08 Forum and was quite impressed with most of the candidates... Not too thrilled with Richardson, though. Edwards was a little wishy-washy, but was OK... Clinton was in the good category along with Obama. Kucinich was very positive as was Gravel... These were my observations... Pam Spaulding at Americablog.com has an excellent rundown of the forum with her liveblogging. Would have been nice to see Biden and Dodd (Dodd will be posting answers to questions on his website).

I will quote one line from Pam's post:

Margaret Carlson mentions that the Republican candidates were asked to
participate in a forum, but they all declined.

List of the cowards:

Brownback
Giuliani
Huckabee
Hunter
McCain
Romney
Paul
T. Thompson

Dumb and Dumbass

After mulling over how to write to Senator John Ensign (R-Prell-NV) and CongrASSman Jon Porter (R-NV03) regarding the inept passage of changes to FISA, I couldn't decide. I thought about being mean, but that wouldn't be right. So I decided to keep it short and sweet (in a condescending kind of way):

I want to extend my thanks for voting to strip all of my civil liberties
away and you stomping on the Constitution. In the words of the man you
support so much... "You're doing a heckuva job, Jonny".


PS: I changed the spelling for John and Jon, respectively.
