Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

What They Do in the Middle of the Night

One thing you can count on in Congress these days. They al ways save the good stuff for the middle of the night.

Almost every piece of controversial legislation that has passed Congress since Texas Republican Tom DeLay consolidated power has been voted on in the middle of the night.

It started a couple of years ago.

At 2:54 a.m. on Friday, March 21, 2003, the House cut veterans benefits by three votes.

At 2:39 a.m. on Friday, April 11, 2003, the House slashed education and health care by five votes.

At 1:56 a.m. on Friday, May 23, 2003, the House passed the Leave No Millionaire Behind tax cut by a handful of votes.

At 2:33 a.m. on Friday, June 27, 2003, the House passed the Medicare privatization and prescription drug bill by one vote.

At 12:57 a.m. on Friday, July 25, 2003, the House eviscerated Head Start, again by one vote.
