Merry Christmas

To all, friend and foe alike, Merry Christmas! Give thanks for all the many blessings in your life, especially the birth of Jesus.
a great time to revisit the historical setting in which Christ was born. And there's no better resource than Dr. Paul Maier's In The Fullness of Time: A Historian Looks at Christmas, Easter and the Early Church. It reveals that the miracle of Christ's birth was, well, a miracle. Gratia Dei.

Give Benedict Nelson The Boot!

The more we learn, the worse it gets.
What did Ben Nelson sell his (our?) vote for? Medicaid dollars? Well, Democrat Senators Conrad and Harkin have both said that Nelson's "Cornhusker Kickback" is illusory since the current Congress can't bind future ones. Simply put, he got nuthin'!
Protection for life? Hmmm. National Right Life strongly opposes the language Nelson helped write--language that was so deceptively bad that pro-abortion senator Barbara Boxer gladly received a hug from Washington Ben after he was snookered into agreeing to it. Maybe that's why Governor Mike Huckabee compared him to Judas.
More than 1,800 Nebraskans showed up on a pre-Christmas Sunday afternoon in Omaha with less than a day's notice to protest Benedict Nelson's duplicity. His response? Nebraskans who oppose him are "almost laughable."
Hear that? If you decide to oppose Washington Benedict's vote in favor of the Reid-Pelosi plan you are "almost laughable."
We cannot stand idly by while this arrogant, pompous, out-of-touch politician runs roughshod over our constitutional rights and sells the lives of the unborn to his highest bidder.
Send a message: go to and help us put Washington Benedict out to pasture once and for all.

Top 5 Things We Learned About Nebraska Democrats During the Special Session

During this holiday season it is appropriate to give thanks to those whose work has benefited our own lives and the lives of others. One person I want to thank is Governor Dave Heineman. His leadership for our great state has been a tremendous blessing, especially his leadership in calling the recent special session of the Nebraska Legislature to deal with the impending budget problems now before it was too late. Most importantly, he insisted on addressing these looming budget issues without increasing the amount of our money that the government already takes from us.

But most of us already knew that Governor Heineman was a leader and a conservative. Nothing new was learned about our great governor as a result of the special session. But we did learn a few things about the Democrats in the Nebraska Legislature.

Over the new few postings I'll share my Top 5 Things We Learned About Nebraska Democrats During the Special Session. And without further adieu, Number 5:

Democrat Sen. Jeremy Nordquist Thinks Tax Increases Might Be the Answer

After the recent session, Sen. Jeremy Nordquist showed his true Democrat colors when he told the Omaha World-Herald that raising our taxes is something he wants the Legislature to take up.

"Sen. Jeremy Nordquist of Omaha said taxes would have to be part of the
discussion if the state faces repeated rounds of budget cutting." (emphasis added).

Congrats to Sen. Nordquist for revealing the Democratic agenda for the Nebraska Legislature!
