YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK

According to columnist Terence Jeffrey, a group called First Tee is an “educational” non-profit organization which promotes golf to American youth. OK, fine. But here’s the problem: First Tee “received $4.5 million in federal funds over the last two fiscal years” and “is asking for another $3 million this year.”

Whoa!

“When the Congressional Budget Office projects a $422 billion annual deficit, why is Congress giving any money to a group like this?” Jeffrey asks. And, “Where in the Constitution does Congress find the authority to fund golf?”

BRUSHFIRE ALERT: Folks, when your congress-critter comes through town trolling for votes over the next few weeks, why not ask those exact same questions and see what kind of response you get.

Better yet, why not call the Capitol Hill switchboard tomorrow morning, ask for your Senate or House member’s office, and ask these questions of the nice staffer who most likely will then go out of his or her way to (a) not give you an answer and/or (b) not let you talk to the “Boss.” Nevertheless, your point will have been made.

The number to call is (202) 224-3121.

THE POLITICAL ACTIVIST’S CREED

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brushfires in people's minds."

PREZ SENDS SOPHIA A NEW SIGN

“Three-year-old Sophia Parlock of West Virginia has gotten a lesson in Compassionate Conservatism right from the top. After a Kerry-supporting IUPAT member snatched and ripped up the Bush/Cheney sign she was waving on Thursday, the president saw fit to send her new one.

“After seeing the AP photo of the crying Sophia balanced on her dad's shoulders, aides said the president was sending her a note on Friday along with a signed campaign poster and an autographed photo of himself and Barney. In the note the president wrote, 'Thank you for supporting my campaign. I understand someone tore up your sign. So I am sending you a new sign and a signed picture. Please give my best to your family.'

“The note on the photo read, 'To Sophia, Best wishes from me and Barney.’ “

DEMOCRATS GONE WILD

“Politics in Gainesville turned rough and tumble Thursday night after police arrested a social behavior sciences instructor - a Democrat - for punching the chairman of the Alachua County Republican Executive Committee in the face,” reports the Gainesville Sun yesterday. “David Philip McCally, 55, of Gainesville faces misdemeanor battery and criminal mischief charges after he was accused of hitting both committee chairman Travis Horn, 32, and a life-sized, cardboard cutout of President George Bush.”

Geez, what’s with these violent Democrats? I thought they were from the pacifist party of peace and love. And don’t you just love the irony of the attacker being a “social behavior sciences instructor.” I mean, you can’t make stuff like this up.

CELSIUS 41.11

Celsius 41.11 is the temperature at which the brain begins to die.

It’s also the title of a new film coming out which rips to shreds the lies put forth by Michael Moore and his “Fahrenheit 9-11” crockumentary.

“Celsius 41.11” was produced by our friend David Bossie and the fine folks over at Citizens United. It debuts in selected theaters this week. You can catch a preview “trailer” of the film by going to: http://www.citizensunited-interactive.org/c41.11/

PRESIDENT ARNOLD?

“Rep. Dana Rohrbacher, R-Calif., introduced a proposed constitutional amendment Wednesday to allow foreign-born people who have been U.S. citizens for at least 20 years to be eligible to run for president. The measure is similar to one proposed last year by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.

“Neither Hatch nor Rohrbacher claims to have been thinking of a possible presidency of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, as a reason behind the proposal.

“ ‘It is time that we amend the Constitution to remove an archaic provision that was originally designed to keep the nobility of foreign countries from meddling in American democracy,’ Rohrabacher said in a release. ‘If an immigrant has demonstrated his commitment to America and is truly qualified as a leader, then there is no good reason to bar him from seeking the highest office in the land.’ “

- Peter Roff, UPI’s Political Briefs, 9/16/04

SENATORIAL WASH

“In Georgia, Congressman Johnny Isakson (R) looks well on his was to scoring a GOP pickup over Congresswoman Denise Majette (D),” Ron Gunzburger reports in his Politics1 blog. “The new WXIA-TV/SurveyUSA poll shows Isakson holding a huge lead: 58% to 38%.” This is the fight for the open seat being vacated by Democrat Sen. Zell Miller.

On the other hand, “The WBBM-TV/SurveyUSA poll shows (Illinois) State Senator Barack Obama (D) destroying conservative activist Alan Keyes (R) by a landslide vote of 65% to 24%” in the Illinois U.S. senate race. This is the fight for the open seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Pete Fitzgerald.

So it looks one Democrat pickup and one GOP pickup...so any numerical changes in the make-up of the Senate are going to have to come from elsewhere.

JUST HAVING A LITTLE FUN

“Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. I went to the public library the other day. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out there was a city cop writing out a parking ticket. I went up to him and said, ‘Come on, buddy, how about giving a senior a break?’ He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

“I called him a name. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a worse name. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote.

“I didn't care. My car was parked around the corner and this one had an ‘Elect John Kerry’ bumper sticker on it. I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important at our age.”

THE GOLDWATER DOCTRINE

“I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is 'needed' before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents' interests, I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.”

- Barry Goldwater, “The Conscience of a Conservative”
