Lindsey McGraham Worships Ted Kennedy

For those of you too young to remember, Ted Kennedy is the guy who, while drunk, walked away from a car accident and left Mary Jo Kopechne to drown to death at the bottom of Poucha Pond, near the Kennedy's compound off Martha's Vineyard, in 1969. Nearly a day later, friends of Kennedy finally called the police to fish her bloated body out of the water. This incident is the root of his long-standing nickname, Teddy Splash Kennedy. Senator Kennedy is also one of the most liberal politicians ever to serve in the US Congress, with a decades-long history of screwing hard-working Americans in favor of left-wing special interest groups and labor unions, and is a darling of the liberal media.

But to Lindsey Graham, Ted Kennedy is a hero. As the news conference proceeded, Senator Graham defended the now-dead immigration bill, and said, in effect: It's not that I THINK I'm smarter than the folks back in South Carolina. It's that I AM smarter than the folks back in South Carolina. Over the past several weeks, as the roar of disapproval for Graham grew stronger by the day in South Carolina, Senator Graham's antics continued At a function of La Raza, a Hispanic group whose primary goal is to reclaim the Southwestern United States for Mexico, by military force if necessary, he was asked his response to the folks back in South Carolina who opposed the amnesty portion of the immigration bill. His response: I'm going to tell the bigots to shut up.

On the Senate floor, Graham referred to his constituents in SC who disagreed with him on amnesty for illegal aliens as "those loud people", and vowed to ignore them. Senator Graham was moved to podium-slapping and near-tears in a floor speech as he pleaded for the rights of illegal aliens, foreign criminals, to reunite their entire families in the United States. This writer was reminded of his last emotional floor speech, when he passionately pleaded for the rights of terrorists, whose primary goal is to kill American children. It's interesting that there is no record of Senator Graham ever making an emotional speech on the Senate floor in defense of the protection and rights of South Carolinians, or US citizens at large.

As the immigration bill died a slow and public death, Senator Graham repeatedly voted with the Democrats, and against the vast majority of conservative Republicans. And on CSPAN, as the historical votes unfolded, he could often be seen huddling with Senators John McCain and Ted Kennedy. For the past several weeks, Lindsey Graham has heard overwhelmingly from South Carolina's voters that we DO NOT support this immigration bill. The volume and intensity of the public outcry was similar to that he heard last year, when we told him that we did not support his leadership in working for the rights of terrorists at the expense of the rights of Americans.

Bomb dump

Bomb dump, is a military storage facility for live ammunition and explosives. The storage of live ammunition and explosives is inherently hazardous. There is the potential for accidents in unloading, packing and transfer; the threat of theft, misuse or sabotage; and, if neglected, the near-certainty that poorly stored explosives will catch fire and/or degrade and become shock-sensitive over time.

Despite intensive preventive measures, ammunition depots around the world suffer from non-combat fires and explosions - rarely, but mostly with devastating consequences. Usually, an ammunition depot experiencing even minor explosions in one of its sites/buildings, is immediately evacuated together with surrounding civilian areas. Thus, all of the stored ammunition is left to detonate itself completely for days or weeks, with very limited attempts at firefighting from a safe distance. If the ammunition's are artillery shells and other heavy types, the whole depot site affected is typically leveled.

The chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the Red Junglefowl. As one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, and with a population of more than 24 billion in 2003, there are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird. Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meat and their eggs.

The traditional poultry farming view of the domestication of the chicken is stated in Encyclopædia Britannica (2007): "Humans first domesticated chickens of Indian origin for the purpose of cockfighting in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Very little formal attention was given to egg or meat production... "

Recent genetic studies have pointed to multiple maternal origins in Southeast, East, and South Asia, but with the clade found in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa originating in the Indian subcontinent. From India the domesticated fowl made its way to the Persianized kingdom of Lydia in western Asia Minor, and domestic fowl were imported to Greece by the fifth century BC. Fowl had been known in Egypt since the 18th Dynasty, with the "bird that gives birth every day" having come to Egypt from the land between Syria and Shinar, Babylonia, according to the annals of Tutmose III.

Lindsey Graham Asks Permission From Ted Kennedy To Vote Against Jim DeMint

Getting Senator Kennedy’s OK
(From The Washington Times 06/07/07)

Often lost in the big picture coverage of major legislative issues like the now-troubled Bush-Kennedy immigration bill are the little moments that say everything about how Washington works. They’re the little moments that your legislators don’t want you to know about and figure will never make it back home through the media.

But Stephen Dinan, our excellent national political reporter who has led the way for months on coverage of immigration legislation, captured this priceless moment in his story this morning as the supporters of the bill struggled to keep it together.

The late-night vote was on an amendment [by SC Republican Senator Jim DeMint] that would require illegal aliens who get legal status to have a minimum level of health insurance. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat who is the chamber’s most liberal member, was — not surprisingly — opposed.

Writes Mr. Dinan: “Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and John McCain of Arizona both went to check with Mr. Kennedy before casting their votes to match his. Soon after, (Arizona Republican Sen. Jon) Kyl also switched his vote to match Mr. Kennedy’s.” The amendment was defeated.

All three of these Republicans proudly claim to be conservatives. Strange bedfellows indeed.
