Bits and pieces


MORE DEAD BIRDS, FISH

Labarre, Louisiana:  Hundreds and hundreds of dead birds litter the landscape along a road near Pointe Coupee Parish in Louisiana.  The birds were of the same type that was found dead in Beebe, Arkansas.  Wildlife officials in the state have gathered samples and are conducting tests to find out the cause.

Chesapeake Bay:  State Wildlife officials are baffled as tens of thousands of small fish have washed up on the shore of the Bay near Kent Island, Maryland.  Cold weather is being blamed for the deaths because the kinds of fish that are being found are fish that normally swim to warmer waters during winter.  Why they didn’t is not known.

Gilbertsville, Kentucky:  A woman there has reported that her property is covered with dead birds.  This had happened a few days ago and she had thought not much of the incident and simply picked them up.  But when she noticed more birds Monday morning, she panicked, “I had just seen the story on the news about the birds in Arkansas and I was scared.”

Brazil:  A hundred tons of dead fish appear along the coastal villages of Brazil.  Wildlife officials are perplexed but theorize the killoff is from 1) environmental factors, 2) an overturned fishing boat, or 3) a chemical leak.  Local fishermen are concerned because there are a large number of people depending on the fish for income and food.

NATIONAL DEBT BUSTS THRU $14 TRILLION

And they want more!  Administration officials want to increase the debt limit from its $14.3 ceiling in order to spend even more!  Obama-rama is pushing his “bankrupt America” agenda even against the tide of opposition that was voiced so loudly in the November elections.  Congressional leaders have vowed to block the increase unless a plan to dramatically reduce federal spending is in place.

From Inside the Beltway:  Jon Voight warns of START Treaty

“Beware, America, of President Obama’s dangerous START treaty,” says Voight. 

Here’s the text of the Washington Times interview with the actor:

Jon Voight

“In my lifetime, I have seen America go through five wars. if America wasn’t the strongest nation in the world, we could have been taken over many times by evil regimes. President Obama is trying to convince the American people that if we give up our nuclear weapons, we would set an example, and all other countries would follow suit. What a naive and dangerous notion.

“If President Reagan wasn’t such a powerful force of strength during his presidency, we would never have seen Premier Gorbachev take down the Berlin Wall. Are we all foolish enough to think President Ahmadinejad of Iran will stop building a nuclear bomb as he kills his own people just for wanting freedom?

“Every American citizen should be up at arms, calling their senators to reject this dangerous START treaty. Without our nuclear might, we are subject to becoming a very weak nation, and what will follow is something more severe than what our nation is experiencing now with unemployment at 9.6 percent.

“In addition, our allies are very concerned for their safety, and they have warned America not to reduce its nuclear power because we serve as their protectors.

“President Kennedy in September 1961 – who himself had served during World War II, nearly losing his life – said America’s military might is the only way to keep our freedom. President Reagan also was of the same thought, and he had the foresight not to sign away our national missile defense in a world full of present and future threats from multiple nuclear powers.

“How many more wrong Obama policies will it take to wake us up to the possibility that Obama is capable of destroying our country? His distorted ambition to make a world peace without America’s nuclear might is a dangerous, dangerous proposition for America. We have seen in the last two years that Obama is not qualified to keep our country safe and strong,” Mr. Voight concludes.
