Burlington Derailed — The Continuing Story
Smoke Gets Your Eyes
“Think what it’s (casino gambling) done for Dubuque, think what it’s done for Davenport, think what it’s done for Burlington, think what it’s done for Sioux City and Council Bluffs. That was economic development, but this group — what did they do? ‘No, you can’t compete,’” Horn said in the senate today. “I don’t understand it, so we had to have some kind of uniqueness to go to.”
“I would like to see us give Cedar Rapids another opportunity to have healthy, family gambling in the state of Iowa
,” Horn said."
A state senator from Cedar Rapids is crying because his city did not get a casino. Desperate, Senator Horn tried legislation to circumvent the Racing and Gaming Commission.
Smoke free, family gambling, would be unique to Cedar Rapids. Bring the kids and hold them up to the slot machine. Let them empty their piggy banks. Have no fear the kiddies will die from second hand smoke.
Citing Burlington as receiving salvation by casino gambling makes one wonder if Senator Horn has been here lately. If he has, was Senator Horn smoking something other than tobacco?
You may breathe easier. Senator Horn's amendment for a healthy, family gambling den went up in smoke.

Iowa Republicans Show a Return to Sanity - Finally WTF*!

It looks like some of the kooks have been left out on the curb.

Is Jack Hatch Hiding Something?
Quick, Ring The MSLWM* & Report The Transparency Violation
"A campaign aide replied that Hatch would match the precedent set by the governor by releasing the return from the year prior to the election -- in Hatch's case, his 2013 return -- and subsequent returns should he be elected. He will not release tax returns from earlier than 2013
Tom Courtney's Iowa Senate party comrade Jack Hatch wants to be your Governor.
Those running the Iowa Senate like to talk about transparency, but have a habit of backing off when it comes to actually enhancing transparency. Jack Hatch will not make public his tax returns prior to 2013 unless he is elected Governor of Iowa.
Why the lack of transparency?

Cure Narcolepsy With Senator Courtney
"Iowa House Rep. Ruth Ann Gaines has seemingly taken a newfound interest in her role on the Government Oversight Committee. The Des Moines Democrat appeared to fall asleep several times during a committee hearing
two weeks ago."
Representative Gaines should seek an Iowa Senate Senate seat. Senator Courtney screaming obscenities may help her stay awake

Harry Reid Behind Nevada BLM Land Grab
"Deleted from BLM.gov but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development
, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”
A liberal Democrat Senator claims he is a champion of the little people. Wealthy, powerful interests covet land occupied by a few little people. The liberal Democrat Senator uses his influence to drive people off land they have been on for generations.
This all brings back memories

Unions Plead for Iowa Senate to Kill Transparency
Courtney's Brethren Sought Secret Settlements
"On Thursday, Ken Sagar, the President of the Iowa Federation of Labor, sent a letter to state senators urging them to oppose legislation that would require government agencies to disclose all information relating to disciplinary actions taken against public employees, as well as information regarding any personnel settlement agreement. It now appears as if it was the labor unions who wanted the “secret” settlements, and not the Branstad Administration
A bill cleared the Iowa House concerning transparency related to public employee discipline and settlements. The unions want the Iowa Senate to kill this bill.
The House bill is a result of the Democrat Party and their biased media buddies stirring up the issue to smear a Republican incumbent Governor of Iowa.
Democrats in the Iowa Senate went along with the plan. With new orders from their party union bosses, how many Democrats will vote to kill transparency.
Will our State Senator Courtney vote as instructed by the union bosses?
White House War of the Vanities
"This was a blowout of epic proportions – probably the nastiest White House fight they’ve ever had
,” a Washington, D.C., insider told The ENQUIRER.
“They were both screaming at one another.
“The president was infuriated when advisers told him that they’d added up the costs of all their ‘vacations’ and China was putting them over the $150 million mark."
A news source far more accurate and far more respected than the Burlington Ad Vertiser is at it again unlike the Ad Vertiser, the Enquirer does investigative reporting
The paper that broke the truth about John Edwards is covering the Obamas.
It appears all is not love and roses upstairs from the rose garden. Many a liberal yearns for the Clinton years. The Obamas may deliver the flying furniture, but nothing more.
Senator Courtney and His Comrades Crumbling Case
Hearings Ain't Worth (Jack) Hatch
Courtney Shows Up for This Inquiry Despite Missing Many Others
"Three of the four former state employees that the Democrat-led Iowa Senate government oversight committee heard testimony from on Wednesday said they did not think their firings were politically motivated. Those statements directly refute attacks by the Iowa Democratic Party and run counter to the main basis of the Des Moines Register’s “investigation”
into supposedly secret settlements paid by state departments."
Democrats in the Iowa Senate orchestrated attempt to claim ill in state employee separations is falling apart. Senate hearings are not confirming what their media allies would have you believe.
Senator Tom Courtney was seen on channel 6 news next to the testimony chair. Our, "You P. O. S.," state senator did not look very happy with how it was going. Neither did his buddy State Senator Bolcom.
Assuming these hearings were supposed to launch State Senator Jack Hatch to becoming Governor Jack Hatch, they ain't worth jack. Probably of greater concern is that Democrats could well become the minority after this year's elections.
If Iowa voters have any sense, they will ignore the current hearings donkey show. Iowa will work better if Senator Courtney regains minority party status.

Bruce Braley - Trial Lawyers First Foremost and Always
"Back on February 11, 1998, Iowa's very own Bruce Braley wrote this pity party for lawyers
and had it published in the Moscow Pullman Daily News out of Moscow, ID."
Bruce Braley is the Iowa Congressman who represents trial lawyers nationwide. Bruce Braley scorns rural Iowans. Bruce Braley wants to be your U. S. Senator.
Bruce Braley's Texas trial lawyers money grubbing pitch was not a one time mistake. Bruce Braley is a past President of the Iowa Trial Layers Association.
Bruce Braley's mea culpa over his Texas tria lawyer fund raiser is the result of being exposed by online media. If you lack an Ivy League J. D., you're a rube to Braley.
Unless you are a trial lawyer, Bruce Braley is the last person you want claiming to represent you in Washington.
Despite New Fort Hood Shooting, Obama Continues to Chicago Fundraisers
"Late Wednesday afternoon, another shooting occurred at Fort Hood, Texas. As the situation was still developing, the President made a hastily arranged appearance from Chicago and in his statement insisted that he was "going to get to bottom of exactly what happened."
No sooner was the President done with his statement than he off he went to his regularly scheduled fundraisers
despite his pledge to "get to the bottom" of what was happening in Texas.
After his statement about the shooting, Obama went on ahead to the Chicago Cut Steakhouse for a meeting with twenty-five supporters, who paid up to $32,400 each to have dinner with the President.
By 7:00 p.m. Obama attended his third fundraiser, a reception at a private Chicago residence, where fifty-five supporters paid $10,000 each to meet him."
