You can count on conservatives not to let their claims of patriotism get in the way of them slavishly serving big money special interests.

Conservatives - putting corruption ahead of our veterans as a priority, again, still.

And they have the gall to call themselves the 'values' party?


  1. Hi DG. Can you post a link or something proving the statement in the poster. I've looked it up and can find no evidence.

  2. Will do J.O.B. -- I recall reading about this attempt at the time. But I will ask your patience; I'm off to play at dog events this weekend, and may not get to it until Sun. night or Mon. morning.

  3. No problem DG. It sounds like something that the House Republicans would do and I know if Bernie Sanders is against it something may be up. But I could not find a link or article or anything on the subject. Have a great canine weekend.

    1. I had a weekend of thunderstorms; now I'm having a hair explosion. The natural curl goes out of control after being drenched repeatedly in rain water (something pH related apparently).

      I did not find specific references to the XL pipeline, although I do remember it was one of the amendments the GOP attempted at the time. In a brief peruse, I did find references specifically to Iran sanctions, along with unspecified other sanctions. It is my recollection that the XL fits into that category ( it had conservative support, but less support for it for the Iran amendments).
      "Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) moved Wednesday night to cut off debate on the bill and blocked consideration of amendments, including one on Iran sanctions demanded by Republicans. And on Thursday, Democrats came up four votes short of the 60 needed to keep the bill moving forward on a procedural budget vote, 56-41."

      I don't have the time right now ( big dog show later this week, followed by puppies coming soon, getting set up for them - life interferes sometimes with blogging!), but if you want further confirmation, I would recommend getting the bill number, and looking up the amendments proposed, which are a matter of record with the Senate and House.
