After dropping $50 -$200, those in attendance may then be invited to shell out some serious bucks for the books, DVDs, and CDs which keep phony psychics fat and happy.  Oh and don't forget to contribute to the "Daffodil Project"--its a "non-profit" for the 580 acre "healing center" that Altea got from a dying cancer patient.

2009 Elections: The State of Conservatism is Strong
By Heritage Foundation @ 12:39 PM :: 5694 Views :: National News, Ethics

Last night, elections were held in several states across the nation, and by most independent observations, the results served as a warning to liberals. Whether it was Republican victories in Virginia, New Jersey or even in typical liberal bastions like Westchester County, New York, the post-analysis was framed on what does this mean on Capitol Hill, and more importantly, what does this mean for the conservative movement. However, last night did not represent a new day for conservatives. On Monday, the same could have been said: the state of conservatism is strong.

Ka`auwai: GOP NJ win "proves traditionally Democrat states can and will vote Republican"
By News Release @ 1:16 AM :: 5221 Views :: Environment, Ethics

“The Republican Party’s overwhelming victory in Virginia and New Jersey is a blow to President Obama and the Democrat Party.  It sends a message that America has had enough of more government spending, higher taxes and bigger government.  The people of this great country are saying no more broken promises and no more change for the sake of change.

"The Hawai'i Democrat Party, who has proven to be ineffective for the people of Hawai'i, should learn from Democrats across the country. These victories prove traditionally Democrat states like Hawai'i can and will vote for Republicans.”

The Public Option Is Neither Public, Nor An Option
By Heritage Foundation @ 2:37 PM :: 4430 Views :: National News, Ethics

For the leftist base of the Congressional majority, the creation of a government-run health insurance company has been the defining issue of the health care debate. So, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has explained numerous times that: “The thinking on the public option has been that it gives consumers more choices and it helps keep the private sector honest because there’s some competition out there.” But is this true? Would the public have more choices if a government run health insurance company was created?

Humanitarian appeal fails: “They are virtually guaranteeing they will never get an earmark from Inouye’’
By Selected News Articles @ 11:59 AM :: 7964 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

Contending they were treated unfairly, Asmus and Coker have written to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. They are accusing Inouye’s staff of unevenly applying earmark procedures by dispersing federal dollars to an institute honoring the late Massachusetts senator without giving their outfit, Humanitarian Air Logistics, what they consider a fair hearing....

Walt Kaneakua, an Inouye aide who Asmus and Coker say accused them of insulting Inouye by questioning his decision-making process, did not respond to a request for comment....

Ellis thinks one thing is a pretty sure bet: “They are virtually guaranteeing they will never get an earmark from Inouye.’’
