Kung Fu Hippie, NYC -- Every notice that right wing-based blogs and websites do not allow comments? (O'Reilly, Malkin, FOX news, Drudge, etc.) Left-leaning sources have no such communication restrictions.

The obvious reason is to deter what they would consider overwhelming "spam" and "hate" postings (IE: liberal opinions)

I imagine it would take a long time editing all the "flaming" posts. And if they did censor their website, they would look unamerican -- so they avoid the situation alltogether -- like much of their decisions.

I request anyone knowing of a popular right-leaning website which offers a comment section to let us know. Thanks.

 
 

Ron Paul: Bailout Unconstitutional, Special Interests Forced Bill Through Congres

Steve Watson -- Infowars.net -- Texas Congressman Ron Paul has warned that the amended bailout legislation that passed Congress on Friday is not only far worse than the original bill but is also unconstitutional.

Paul speaking just minutes after leaving the floor of the House on Friday, explained that the tax portion of the bill was written by the Senate, when under the Constitution only the House can originate tax bills.

“That in itself was unconstitutional but it’s been done before and it will be done again.” The Congressman said.

Paul highlighted that the passage of the bill defied logic because it was even worse than the original rejected version:

“It’s amazing, you take a very very bad bill, appropriating $700 billion, you can’t get enough votes to pass it so you take it back out, you make it much worse and take it up to over $800 billion.” Paul commented.

“Today is an even sadder day that on Monday,” Paul stated, “Here today when the special interests got their two cents in, or their $10 million worth of lobbying in, the members switched their vote.”

The Congressman decried the fact that 57 members, mostly so called conservatives, switched their votes on Friday. He urged that those who have destroyed the economy and our freedoms not be allowed to dictate how the system is rebuilt in America.

Paul also compared the economic situation to that of the Soviet Union in 1989, urging that the current economic meltdown stems from empire building foreign policy, and that we are now dealing with the bankruptcy of the United States.

Earlier in the day Ron Paul had taken the floor in the House to express his opposition to the bailout, stating that it represents an evasion of the real problem and more of the same inflationary practices that have caused the crisis in the first instance.

 
 

(AP News) — Seven Alaska state employees have reversed course and agreed to testify in an abuse-of-power investigation against Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

There is no indication, however, that Palin or her husband will do the same.

Palin, a fist-term Alaska governor, is the focus of a legislative inquiry into whether she abused her office by firing Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan. Monegan says he was dismissed because he wouldn't fire the governor's former brother-in-law.

Lawmakers subpoenaed seven state employees to testify in the inquiry but they challenged those subpoenas. A judge rejected that challenge last week. Because of that ruling, Alaska Attorney General Talis Colberg says the employees have decide to testify.
