Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts is not going to run for reelection because redistricting has left him with a district that is not as liberal as it once was. Frank has decided that he would not have it as easy as he has in the past and might end up losing. He figures that after 32 years in Congress it is time to move on so he can make even more money as a lobbyist or some other kind of blood sucker.
I am glad Frank is not running for reelection though I would love to see him get beat in an election. He is a disgusting, lying, condescending, smug, jerk who thinks he is above everyone else. He has told lies and denied involvement in things EVEN after being shown video evidence of him saying the things of which he was accused. He is one of the people who is primarily responsible for the housing market collapse that resulted in the current economic downturn.
He is a typical liberal elitist who thinks he knows what is good for all of us.
To Barney Frank, you are not smart enough to run your own life so you need him and others in government to tell you what to do and how and when to do it.
Frank however, allowed a homosexual prostitution ring to be run out of HIS home but he knows what is best for you. Frank claims not to know what was taking place in his home. If this is the case is he competent enough to decide what should go on in yours?
Many liberals think so and they will surely have many nice things to say about this moron. DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Washer-Woman Schultz, is already expressing how sad she is that Frank is leaving. Washer-Woman Schultz might not understand that Frank is a coward who is afraid of being beaten in the next election and who does not want to actually have to campaign. While he might enjoy being spanked he does not want to lose his election and he does not want to actually have to work to keep his seat (though he might enjoy giving that away as well).
In any event, this low life cretin who is nothing more than a waste of flesh is leaving office. That is great news as we begin the process of getting rid of the trash.
Goodbye you good for nothing liberal twit. If we never hear from you again it will be far too soon.
Never surrender, never submit.

The Occupy crowd around the country is full of filthy people who are disrupting life for those who work and pay taxes to support this country. They have had a number of crimes including rape occur at their camps and there are outbreaks of communicable diseases including sexually transmitted diseases and drug resistant Tuberculosis.
We have already seen pictures of people who have defecated on police cars and we know these “people” are using public places to relieve themselves. Breitbart has posted a video of a protester who squats and defecates on the sidewalk.
This is the movement that Obama and the Democrats support.
Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin and a slew of other liberals (many of them wealthy and who have made money off Wall Street or through capitalism) have publicly expressed their support for these people.
The occupy protests have been going on for about two months and police around the country are starting to clear these people out.
Unfortunately, they are about two months too late.
Never surrender, never submit.

The federal government has spent $1.44 million of taxpayer money to study, among other things, male prostitutes in South East Asia.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has so far awarded $1.44 million in federal funds to a project that, among other things, is estimating the size of the population and examining the “social milieu” of male prostitutes in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. CNS News
The study will look at HIV rate in men who have sex with men.
Who cares about their male prostitutes (or any of their prostitutes) and who cares about their HIV rate? That is not our concern and is for their government to look at. One thing is for sure is that taxpayer money should not be spent for this folly.
Did Barney Frank allocate the money for this?
If anyone knows about male prostitutes, he would be the guy…
Never surrender, never submit.

Rahm Emanuel said that they should never let a crisis go to waste. Since that time the Obama regime has been manufacturing one crisis after another in order to scare Americans into following the agenda put forward by the Dear Leader Obama. In other words, the fear mongering that Obama accused George Bush of is exactly what Obama and his regime are doing in order to get what they want. I don’t know why they bother because even when the majority of Americans do not buy their song and dance they still push forward and pass what they want.
The financial crisis was one that had to be addressed immediately or the world would end. We must act or now and pass the stimulus. While the administration claims that the stimulus did what it was expected to do (the goal is a moving target) the evidence is that we spent nearly a trillion dollars and got little. Unemployment remains above the number promised if we passed the stimulus and the economy, while slowing showing signs of improvement, is set to experience a second recession and inflation. The stock market is up based on the activity of a few stocks and projections for a year and a half away. Right now, we are still in trouble.
The health care takeover bill that was recently signed into law was one that had to be passed or we faced crisis. The major portions of the law do not take effect until well after the 2012 election but the taxes and other revenue generating gimmicks take place right now. If we had to act NOW then why do major portions not take effect for years to come? This crisis was manufactured to get Obama’s signature legislation passed and allow the government to sink its teeth even deeper into our necks.
Now we have a new crisis being manufactured. The regime has blamed the financial collapse on Wall Street and while that entity deserves some of the blame, it is not the only reason that we have this problem. The housing market, pumped up by government regulation requiring banks to lend to people who could not afford homes, is another key player in the mess. George Bush gets a lot of the blame from the Obama regime but it was he who said that we needed to reign in Fannie and Freddie. People like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd said there were no problems and that these entities were sound. They were only sound for the friends of Democrats who received millions in compensation for running them into the ground.
Obama told us recently, using the words he always uses in a crisis (if we don’t act now), that we must pass the financial reform bill. The financial system, like the health care system, needs some reform but it does not need massive government intervention and takeover. But this is what the government wants. It has control of two of the three major auto makers, the banks, student loans, and now the health care system. It wants to control every aspect of our lives.
But ask yourselves, do you trust the people who ran up a 12 TRILLION dollar deficit to run anything else? Do you trust that government can run the auto industry? GM is still taking big losses. Do you trust the people who run the Post Office to run your health care? Government spends OUR money. It has no concept of what a budget is or how to live within the constraints of one. Government has no business being in business even if it were actually capable of balancing a budget and living within its means.
This regime has usurped the Constitution and is moving us steadily along into a world of Socialism where playing fields are leveled, where income is redistributed and where government runs everything.
This November we have a chance to elect conservatives (notice I did not say Republicans). We have a chance to elect people who will follow the Constitution and who will make Obama a lame duck for his first (and God willing, only) term.
Get energized. There are 435 job openings in the House and about 33 job openings in the Senate.
Let’s fill them with people who have actually worked in the real world and who will follow the Constitution as it was written and as it was intended.
The only real crisis in this country is the crisis that exists as our elected government. Let’s not let this crisis go to waste.
Make Rahm Emanuel and the Obama regime eat those words this November.

Was this a deliberate stunt to garner support for the reform bill? This is how dictatorships run…
The financial bill would reward Goldman Sachs and others by providing perpetual bail-outs. Once again Dodd’s name appears.
More on Dodd (or is it moron Dodd?)
Never surrender, never submit.
Feb 17, 2010 Commentary
Barney Frank agrees with Evan Bayh that the climate in the Congress is not operating as it should and that there is too much partisanship. Frank thinks it would be better if Senator Bayh stays on and helps to end the filibuster, a procedure that allows bills to be stalled or killed.
Both parties have used the filibuster and both have threatened to kill it in order to pass their agendas. The filibuster is only good when one is in the minority and bad when one is in the majority. Minorities love using it.
The filibuster is a thorn in the side of the majority because invoking it requires a 3/5 (60 vote) cloture to end it. This means that each time the filibuster is used it requires more than a simple majority to get things passed.
The Constitution describes a quorum as a majority of a particular chamber present. This suggests that a majority is all that is needed to conduct business and to get things done. However, the Constitution also allows each chamber to make its own rules and the rules of the Senate allow for the filibuster and requires 3/5 to end it. They can change those rules but that would require 2/3 (67 votes) to vote for the change. It is unlikely that the Senate could get 67 people to vote on ending the filibuster as a rule change.
If Democrats were to succeed then it is likely they would ask for the filibuster in the future and would want a rule change to get it. Remember, the minority party loves the filibuster. If they could get 67 votes they might get satisfaction now but regret it later when a Republican Congress and President could do what it wanted with no opposition from Democrats.
Another option is the Nuclear or Constitutional option. This is a procedure where the filibuster is declared unconstitutional and then must be voted on. In order to pass, a simple majority of 51 votes is needed. In other words, the Democrats could declare the filibuster unconstitutional and then use 51 votes to end it (Republicans do not have enough votes to stop it).
This is what Bill Frist threatened to do when Bush nominees were being denied an up or down vote. The Democrats threatened to shut down the Senate if Frist invoked the nuclear option. The filibuster was obviously important to them at that time and they were willing to shut down the Senate to keep it.
I am not sure how they could have shut down the Senate but one would have to assume the Republicans could do the same thing.
If the Democrats declare the filibuster unconstitutional then it would likely be lost forever. How could any Congress later state that it was not unconstitutional after all? Of course, how can they declare it unconstitutional when they have been using it since the mid 1800s?
As for Barney Frank, he is not part of the Senate so his input really matters little since he cannot vote on the Matter. Besides, he has been one of the most partisan people in Congress.
His idea of partisanship is when Republicans do what the Democrats want. Frank has little concern for the ideas of the other side.
I did not like Ted Kennedy but he knew how to broker a deal and to reach across the aisle on occasion. He worked with Republicans and Republicans worked with him to get legislation passed.
Was it always good legislation? No but they did work together.
We do not need to end the filibuster, we need to end the tenure of the people in Congress. It is time to sweep out the people who have been there for way too long.
In the last election the youth of America embraced Barack Obama as young and in tune. They discounted McCain, in part, because of his age and length of service.
It is time they did the same to the people in Congress by embracing younger people who are not career politicians.
Most Americans are not far left or far right. I am conservative on some things and moderate on others. Adam and Darrel, who comment here, are liberal on some things and moderate on others. We can have the debates about policy and what we think is good for America and we can either agree or agree to disagree. In the end we have more in common than not though we differ on how to get to where we need to be as a country (and where we need to be). One thing is certain though, we cannot get anywhere as long as we allow people to take up residence in DC and have decades long careers. We need fresh blood.
Vote for the new person in the primary and then let the parties fight it out in the general election. Let us show them who they work for and let us hold them accountable.
I will not vote for any incumbent in November. I urge everyone else to do the same.
