Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book.

Why isn't this top-of-the-blog-page news?

Found this on via Drudge where it was placed between a link to a story detailing how kidnapped bus passengers in Mexico are forced into "gladiator like fights to the death", and another link about how the UK Navy is doing in Libya. In other words even Drudge treats this as no big story. We're being lied to and having our attention misdirected towards trivia even as attempts to fundamentally change the nation are being tried.

US Congress votes against Libya funding

The US House of Representatives voted to prohibit the use of funds for American military operations in Libya.

Lawmakers adopted the amendment to a military appropriations bill by a vote of 248 to 163.

A number of members of Congress have recently expressed their dissatisfaction at President Barack Obama's decision to go ahead with operations in Libya in March and to continue without congressional authorization.

The amendment, introduced by Democratic representative Brad Sherman from California, invokes the War Powers Resolution, a 1973 law that limits presidential powers on sending troops abroad into combat zones without the consent of Congress.

Sherman's text states that "none of the funds made available by this act may be used in contravention of the War Powers Act."

According to the War Powers Resolution, the president must seek congressional authorization to send US troops into combat and must withdraw American forces within 60 days if Congress has not authorized the military action.

The same measure was presented in another bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security but failed to pass on June 2.

Lawmakers must still approve the appropriations bill as a whole and the measure must still be approved by the Senate.

The White House has been under rising pressure from congressional critics demanding details about US goals in Libya and questioning the likely costs and duration of the campaign, in which Washington now has a supporting role.

The House of Representatives recently passed a symbolic resolution chiding Obama for not seeking congressional approval for US involvement in Libya and giving him until June 17 to respond.

(End of story. My comments follow)

So how long will it take for this appropriations bill to make it's way to El Presidente's desk? How much longer does Caesar/Obama have to use our military in his own schemes for regime change? How much deeper will our troops be involved?

Which story will get the most coverage, this one dealing with the usurpation of Congress' role in approving our military actions, or the story about a perverted politician who likes texting 17 yr. old girls?

WHT, apparently so. We've got genuine regime change getting done in Libya but nary a peep from the usual suspects. Now if it'd happened under G.W. Bush.....

Wouldn't it be nice if we could do a two-fer and impeach Obama AND Eric Holder at the same time? A girl can dream, no?
