The taxdayteaparty?

GinGrinch is back with a vengeance folks, as we can see by the the current media spin and the organization of rednecked sheeple to protest against the very things that they supported under George Duhhbya Bu$h. The long term memory is so lacking in this shuman livestock that they believe it when they are told that Obama is now responsible for our current economic crisis.

By Tiffany Kary • and Peter S. Green • April 4, 2009

NEW YORK — About 500 rain-soaked demonstrators held a rally and march through New York’s financial district Friday, calling for more jobs, a moratorium on home foreclosures and a halt to U.S. bailout funds for banks.

Just saying: the liberals have had this pretty well covered, except, of course, for main stream media.

Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee

The Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (FESAC) has been Chartered pursuant to Section 14(a)(2)(A) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law 92-463, and Section 101-6.1015, Title 41 Code of Federal Regulations. The committee provides independent advice to the Director of the Office of Science on complex scientific and technological issues that arise in the planning, implementation, and management of the Fusion Energy Sciences program. A new charter was signed in August 2007, and will be in effect for 2 years. The charter was modified on November 6, 2008. The substantive change in this revision is that the Secretary of Energy has delegated to the Under Secretary for Science the authority to nominate, appoint, renew the term of, and terminate the service of members of the Committee. In addition, the modified charter recognizes that the Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration have recently implemented a joint program of research in the field of High Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas. When the Committee is asked to deal with issues related to this joint program, it will do so in the manner described in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) attached to the Charter.

Political Animal

A RELIGIOUS RIGHT CRACK-UP?…. In general, the most noticeable fissure among politically conservative evangelical Christians is generational. In this dynamic, older evangelicals see themselves as an appendage of the Republican Party, and consider abortion and gay rights as the only “moral” issues that matter. Younger evangelicals are less partisan, and consider poverty and global warming important, too.

But there’s another fissure, which in the short term, may be even more consequential. It’s between leaders of the religious movement vs. those more inclined to take John 18:36 to heart (Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world”).

The split first emerged, on a conceptual level, about a decade ago, when Cal Thomas, a far-right columnist and founding member of the Moral Majority, write a book called “Blinded by Might,” arguing that conservative evangelical Christians have been going about their efforts all wrong. Religious right activists, Thomas said, should focus less on political power and influence — having a seat at the proverbial GOP table — and more on religion and family.

In her Washington Post column today, Kathleen Parker reports on how this kind of thinking as grown considerably more common, to the point that many “principled Christians” are now “finished with politics.” Parker highlights a recent argument between Tom Minnery, head of the political arm of Focus on the Family, and Steve Deace of WHO Radio in Iowa.
