Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

Workaholic Kerry - His Shining Senate Record

In the third debate, John Kerry said he had written 56 bills that had been passed. 56 over 20 years. Hmm...let's see... 56 divided by 20...umm...carry the one...umm...comes to a little over 2 bills a year. The man is a whirlwind of productivity! But what 56 bills? Well, we can be sure these were major pieces of legislation because...well because Kerry cares about us, he tells us, & constantly reminds us that he has "led the fight" & has been "in the forefront" in his battles to give us all a better life. And Kerry wouldn't lie, would he? So here is a break down of his remarkable achievements over 20 years, all to help us poor folk:

Kerry's 56 varieties (one more & it's ketchup time) include bills, joint resolutions, concurrent resolutions & Senate resolutions. The last 2 have no force of law.

He authored 24 concurrent resolutions, the likes of which are these examples:
To change the name of the Committee on Small Business to the "Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship." (2001)
To make May 21, 1991 “National Land Trust Appreciation Day.” (1991)
Honoring Milton D. Stewart for his leadership and service at the Small Business Administration. (2002)

10 Senate-passed bills granted waivers to foreign-built vessels going port to port in the U.S. 10 ships = 10 separate bills.

Kerry has authored only 11 bills over 20 years that became law:
S.J.Res.158: To make the week of Oct. 22 – Oct. 28, 1989 “World Population Awareness Week.” (1989)
S.J.Res.160: To renew “World Population Awareness Week” for 1991. (1991)
S.J.Res.318: To make Nov. 13, 1992 “Vietnam Veterans Memorial 10th Anniversary Day.” (1992)
S.J.Res.337: To make Sept. 18, 1992 “National POW/MIA Recognition Day." (1992)

H.R.1900 (S.300): Awarded a congressional gold medal to Jackie Robinson (posthumously), and called for a national day of recognition. (2003)
H.R.1860 (S.856): Increased the maximum research grants for small businesses from $500,000 to $750,000 under the Small Business Technology Transfer Program. (2001)

S.791: Authorizes $53 million over four years to provide grants to woman-owned small businesses. (1999)
S.1206: Names a federal building in Waltham, Massachusetts after Frederick C. Murphy, who was killed in action during World War II and awarded (posthumously) the Medal of Honor. (1994)
S.1636: A save-the-dolphins measure aiming “to improve the program to reduce the incidental taking of marine mammals during the course of commercial fishing operations.” (1994)
S.1563: Funding the National Sea Grant College Program, which supports university-based research, public education, and other projects “to promote better understanding, conservation and use of America’s coastal resources.” (1991)
S.423: Granting a visa and admission to the U.S. as a permanent resident to Kil Joon Yu Callahan. (1987)

This is the sum total of Kerry's "working hard" for you over 20 years! Hell, he's not even working hard for his own state since there is a clear lack of bills in Massachusetts' interests. Where are the medicaid bills, the Social Security reform bills, the prescription drug bills, the tax bills, the clean air bills, the environmental bills, the military bills, the budget bills, the child care bills, & on & on??

But have no fear. Kerry has promised that as President he will work hard for us. And Kerry wouldn't lie, would he? No wonder Kerry won't talk about his Senate record & instead spends the time criticizing President Bush for what he supposedly didn't do legislatively. But to be fair to Kerry, since he only showed up half the time at his paid Senate job the guy just didn't have the time to write bills to help us poor folk. Kerry is pure phoney & baloney. The Senate is just an ego trip for Kerry on his quest for the mother of all ego trips - the White House. How anyone can get snookered by Kerry into voting for him is beyond me.

All fluff & puff - where's the legislation on the important issues of this country. Unless naming a building or helping the dolphins is Kerry's idea of important.

Kerry likes to talk. I do not know where he spent his time for 20 years. Attending committee meetings was surely not a priority. What leadership positions in the Senate has he managed to be appointed to? My view is that Kerry likes the perks and prestige that accompany being senator but not too much of the work. Edwards is of the same mold and has done nothing for NC and would
not be elected here for a second term.

One thing I've noticed in your posts is that they are almost all negative. Negative about Kerry. Negative about Edwards. Negative about the Democrats. Paint a one-sided picture too often and you lose my respect.

To convince me to vote for Bush again you need to tell me about his accomplishments while he was President. What legislation did he propose and champion? What have the government departments under his jurisdiction accomplished?

Pat - You are exactly right. For Kerry, the Senate is a ceremonial position.

Anon: Of course the posts are all negative on Kerry & the Dems! This is a blog biased toward the Repubs, so losing your respect is irrelevant. Convince yourself to vote Bush. His record is out there. As is Kerry's, as the post above shows.

Yes. Bush's record is out there. I really didn't think you wanted to go there. I'll give you just a few of the highlights.

Redirected the American forces in the Middle East enabling Osama bin Laden to escape.

Passed EVERY spending bill Congress presented him.

Allowed assualt weapons to be purchased again.

Presided over the biggest deficit the nation has ever had.

First modern President to have a net loss in jobs during his tenure.

While Governor of Texas, the state ranked last or near last in the nation in almost social category - education, health, environment, etc.

Failed in every commercial venture undertaken as a private citizen.

Was arrested for drunk driving. Continued to have drinking problems later in life.

Avoided combat duty in Vietnam.

These are just a few items from the legacy of George W Bush.

Francis, You have me laughing today on a day that I find it hard to even smile (check out my BLOG). I really enjoy reading your posts and love how you tear apart the ANON, who in my mind are just cowards for not saying who they are.. but no matter what you write or say you would never ever convice me to wote for Bush. I know we both have very differing opinions but in the past I was not opposed to voting for a Republican in certain instances. I will say thought that since W took over in a travisty, and the last 2 years, I will NOT vote for anything but a dem for anything.. On top of that I am stuck with his moronic brother as a Gov. here in Fla. I was talking with someone last night about this and telling them how I appreciated your views and that we could discuss politics and something that got me was that, with everything that has happened in his administration -- the failing economy, the unemployment, Sept 11, (not at all saying it was his fault), War and his track record.. I just can't understand why people would continue to back this man.. I consider myself an inteligent person and I feel you are as well.. I guess I am going to someone I would consider a voice of the Republicans that I can actually listen to and wonder why?? the saying, if it aint broke dont fix it!! Well guess what.. it is broke and it is falling apart.. I am sorry to go on and on and maybe after you read my blog you will understand.. but there is something in the blog that you told me and I want to say THANK YOU.

Talk to you soon..

Gee Jeff, where to begin, where to begin? The unemployment figures are fine. Less than when Clinton was in office - this you cannot dispute - so that argument is taken away from you. The economy is coming along fine & growing - from a mild recession that started at end of Clinton term. Inflation is low, unemployment low, jobless claims low, interest rates low, housing starts high, home ownership high, consumer spending increasing, GDP increasing. Geesh - if this is bad, then I can't wait to see it good.
