Climate-Gate Denial:  The recent announcement by EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson that greenhouse gasses endanger public health lays out the red carpet for a host of new government regulations across a broad swath of industries. And it comes as no surprise to those familiar with publications penned by Jackson underling Lisa Heinzerling.

Government Take Over of Financial Services Passes House:  HR 4173 has just passed the House with a 223-2o2 vote. This legislation creates a five member committee that will prevent the President from having to go before Congress to obtain money for Bailouts and expand the President's power in making decisions that effect the financial sector

Great Expectations Dashed:  After the disastrous Christmas shopping season of 2008, it's understandable that retailers desire 2009 to be a makeup year. They're hoping that pent-up demand for "must have" electronic items and less pricey gifts catering to those desiring creature comforts like sweaters and other clothing items will place their bottom line squarely in the black this year – after all, Black Friday comes with the hope that subsequent holiday sales will make the year's profit.

CHQ - Why Leaderless Tea Parties Are Beating the GOP 

Why Leaderless Tea Parties Are Beating the GOP

Richard Viguerie  - "Rasmussen reports the Tea Party Movement, which percolated only months ago, is beating the Grand Old Party. That's amazing -- and good -- news. A nascent grassroots movement is more popular than a long-established political party. Republican Party leaders should be embarrassed. Instead, the Republican establishment disdains this populist uprising."

Senator Jim DeMint: I Need Some New Republicans

CBN News (The Brody File) - "Hey Tea Party participants. Listen up. Senator Jim DeMint says it's time for, "some new republicans" to be elected to serve in the Senate. DeMint spoke to The Brody File about what he wants to see happen in 2010. The junior Senator from South Carolina is a MAJOR player in the Tea Party movement due to the fact that he has been aggressively backing conservative type candidates against Republican establishment figures. For example, he's backing Marco Rubio in Florida against Charlie Crist and Chuck DeVore in California instead of Carly Fiorina."

Texas Tells EPA 'Go Away,' We Can Do It Better

The Gov Monitor - "Governor Rick Perry today sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson urging her to withdraw the EPA's recent ruling on the danger of carbon dioxide."

Perry references the "negative implications of Washington's continued intrusion into the lives of Texans by sacrificing jobs, negatively impacting our energy industry and compromising our economic strength as they pursue one-size-fits all energy regulations."

"The unelected bureaucrats at the EPA have effectively and unilaterally ended any honest debate on this vital issue."

NH DHHS Announces Pilot Transportation Project Aimed at Improving Access to Services in Concord

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has launched a pilot project to assist people in accessing DHH Sservices in Concord. The transportation project is a three-month pilot program that returns a fixed public bus route to the DHHS Concord District Office.

“This idea came from staff at our Concord district office,” said DHHS Division of Family Assistance (DFA) Director Terry Smith. “DFA staff wanted to do something for our clients who are unable to get to us due to lack of transportation. I’ve seen first hand the difficulties some of our clients have getting to our office; there are no sidewalks, and it means they must walk on the side of the road.”

"We know there’s a need for affordable transportation during these difficult times and we want to be part of the solution to help people access the services they need," said Jim Sudak of Concord Area Transit (CAT). "We are now making two stops at the 40 Terrill Park Drive location as part of the CAT’s Industrial Park Drive route. The stops are scheduled for 10:55 AM and 1:00 PM, Monday through Friday. We’re trying this out on a temporary basis and will evaluate the project after ninety days to determine its viability."

“This is all about communities working in partnership,” said DHHS Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas. “Ralph Littlefield from the Community Action Agency in Concord, Jim Sudak from CAT, and Kit Morgan from the Department of Transportation, all worked enthusiastically with us at DHHS to expedite access to our services in the Concord area.”

The Concord District Office staff are working with clients to identify their transportation needs and inform them of this service. Appointments will be made to accommodate the CAT schedule for those who lack transportation. If the pilot proves successful, the idea would be to add this as a permanent stop to the CAT Industrial Park Drive route.
