    658 Resolutions Ignored (Guns)
    The lamestream media told you:
    Democrats congratulated themselves on passage of their six top-priority bills in their self-imposed 100-hour sprint for the 110th Congress. Whether the bills will pass the Senate, or survive a veto from the president, who is not a member of their party but is not very bright, is unknown.
    The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
    The House introduced a mind-numbing 658 resolutions in the first 100 hours of congressional floor time, unreported by the "news" media.
    All of the language appears to have been written before the session began, mostly by unelected teams of democratic operatives outside public view, presumably as part of the Democrats' promised ethics reforms.
    For the six passed bills, the committee process, floor debate, floor markups, amendments, deletions, rules and procedural questions were avoided as part of new ethical policies. This eliminated from the process rank and file congressmen, including eager freshman legislators from both parties, none of whom were interviewed on how they feel about that.
    Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the highly admired first woman Speaker of the House, has called the new approach, "open, fair and full debate," and "open, honest and ethical government." She was not questioned on the discrepancy by the unbiased media.
    No reporting covered the 658 resolutions, which are intended to become laws, and covered for example a Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, a Bring The Troops Home Act, a Coal to Liquid Fuel Promotion Act, and a NICS Improvement Act, H.R. 297, which affects national firearms background checks for the public. The reason for the "news" media blackout were unclear.
    "The Child Gun Safety and Gun Access Prevention Act of 2007" H.R.256, has no details posted at this time. A toy gun ban, H.R. 428, involving the Consumer Products Safety Commission, has no details posted at this time.
    The "Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2007," H.R. 96, is listed but no information is currently available. The previous and poorly named gun show loophole act, sponsored by Sen. John McCain, was designed to close down gun shows completely. That bill was thoroughly examined at gunlaws.com:
    [Note: Because the Gun Law Update and Page Nine lists overlap, you may have seen some of this info already.] Under the original draft, currently legal gun shows are outlawed without prior federal permission. Gun show promoters must agree to warrantless searches in order to operate, and may be arrested if private citizens talk at the show about gun sales they wish to complete away from the show. I did not make that up. The right to assemble peaceably at a gun show or even plan for one, carries stiff prison terms unless federal licenses are issued in advance.
    Massive new bureaucracy is created because all shows and their exhibitors must be registered 30 days before the show, then again 72 hours before the show, and again five days after the show. That's in addition to registering anyone who walks in, plus "any other information" the Secretary of the Treasury decides, by regulation, is necessary on vendors, attendees, and the show itself.
    Critics pointed out that none of this deals with the criminals, or background checks, and the rest of the bill just gets worse.
    See the 658 bills your House of Representatives introduced and that the lamestream media failed to tell you about here: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/multicongress/multicongress.html, by clicking "110" and "All" and "House Bills Only."
    The cost of the bills is unknown. The amount of tax increase included is unknown. The unpaid Uninvited Ombudsman cannot possibly spend the time to do that research, and invites readers to try. "News" outlets avoid that work because it is no longer their yob to inform the public. About 49,000 words of new law passed the House.
    "News" reports did include the votes on the six bills that passed, like ball scores, but following standard procedure did not provide the bill numbers, which would allow the public to look up the bills themselves.

    "Rather than bleed and bankrupt the nation endlessly, we should let go of the empire. Americans must learn how to mind our own business and cease to meddle in other nation's quarrels. Iraq was never a threat to the United States. Only our mindless intervention has made it so."

    Maybe this needs a seperate post. The 'conservatives' here still don't realize thier guy is not one of them... Ole Pat does though...

    People... Your party and this country have been hijacked! Stop taking the medicine you are being spoon fed. It's called P-r-o-p-o-g-a-n-d-a and it's killing us. The old guard of the republican party is saying the same thing us Conspiracy Nuts are saying. The term neo-con is a real one and many of you have blindly followed into that camp.
