House Bill Honors Hawaii as 50th State and President Barack Obama's Birthplace! (Giving the Nutty Birthers the Raspberry!)

Rep. Neil Abercrombie, (D-Hawaii), has introduced a resolution "Recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th State" and includes the following line: "Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii."
HR 592:
Recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th State.
Whereas August 21, 2009, marks the 50th Anniversary of President Dwight D. Eisenhower's signing of Proclamation 3309, which admitted Hawaii into the Union in compliance with the Hawaii Admission Act, enacted by the United States Congress on March 18, 1959;
Whereas Hawaii is `a place like no other, with a people like no other' and bridges the mainland United States to the Asia-Pacific region;

Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii;
Whereas Haw
aii has contributed to the diversity of Congress in electing the first Native Hawaiian member of Congress...
This incredible bill celebrates a Great State and our Great President! It is time for the idiotic "Birthers" to shut up and stop already with their ridiculous, lying claims. It is time for Peace in America, Equality for All, and a time to honor our Great State of Hawaii and our Great President Obama!

God Bless America!
God Bless our President Barack Obama!

While this may have been a nice gesture for Hawaii's 50th anniversary, it was pretty stupid of Congress to think that they could fix a place of birth by voting on it in a resolution. It just shows how many idiots we have in Congress.

The Best 10 Cartoons on Sonia Sotomayor. I collected and present them for you.

These are the "Nice" cartoons or "Friendly" cartoons, because the "Hate" and "Racist" cartoons ( many of them ) are extremely ugly and poorly drawn, as if Hate had harmed the Artistic Skills of the Drawer, or the guy is a poor artist.

Definetely those that are the servants of Hate are the worst Artists !

Here are the 10 Best Sonia Cartoons :

GOPers Most Likely To Flip For Sotomayor

Some excerpts :

Here are On Call's picks for the GOP senators most likely to flip:

1. Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH): Gregg won't seek re-election in '10, and he has shown significant deference to Obama's appointees (he was, after all, Obama's pick to head the Commerce Dept., for a short while).

2. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ): Nearly 30% of AZ's population is Hispanic, and McCain's BFF, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), was the only Senate Judiciary Republican to break with this party. But McCain is also feeling some heat on the right; Minutemen co-founder Chris Simcox is planning a primary challenge.

3. Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO): A spokesperson for the retiring Bond said that he is inclined to support Sotomayor. But Bond helped lead the charge against State Dept. legal adviser Harold Koh over concerns that Koh might supplant American law with transnational law based on his past writings. Sotomayor's beliefs about how or if judges should consider foreign or international law was a major GOP theme during her confirmation hearings.

4. Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH): Guns won't be an issue for the retiring Voinovich, who helped Dems shoot down the Thune amendment, which would have lifted some restrictions on bringing concealed weapons over state lines. Voinovich doesn't have many GOP friends right now, either, after he said 7/27 that the party was "being taken over by Southerners." But Voinovich also voted against Solicitor Gen. Elena Kagan, who some think might be Obama's next SCOTUS choice, back in March.

5. Sen. John Ensign (R-NV): A longshot, but the beleaguered Ensign has a little more than three years to rehabilitate his reputation before his re-election bid. Where to start: his conservative base, or the 25%-and-growing Hispanic population of his home state?
