All, I can say is wow!
It is all about the government and ObamaCare mandates for Boxer and Al Sharpton. Do as WE say, because we (the government) know what is best for you.
Maybe Senator Boxer would like to tell me where the right to buy health insurance is located in the Constitution?
Oh yeah, the religious one is in the first amendment, remember Senator?
Yet, Democrat U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid will provide cover for pro-life, Catholic Senators who want to vote NO on the Blunt amendment.
California U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer answering a question during election 2010
Is California Senator Barbara Boxer worth going to jail?
Probably NOT, but this moron could not control his temper and off he goes.
A San Rafael man accused of threatening to kill U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer pleaded guilty as charged Monday, a county prosecutor said.
Kevin Joseph O’Connell, 47, admitted to charges of criminal threats and threatening a public official, said Deputy District Attorney Aicha Mievis.
O’Connell accepted an offer from Judge Terrence Boren to plead guilty if the charges were reduced to misdemeanors, Mievis said.
O’Connell faces up to a year in jail when he is sentenced Nov. 9.
O’Connell was arrested in July after leaving a threatening voice mail at the senator’s office in San Francisco. San Rafael police said O’Connell was upset over supposed harassment by public safety officers and tensions with his neighbor, not about Boxer’s politics.
“It was a cry for help,” said O’Connell’s lawyer, Deputy Public Defender Bonnie Marmor.
O’Connell could have faced up to three years in prison if convicted of the felony charges. He remains in custody at the Marin County Jail.
Remember folks, you can disagree with the POLS. But, stick to the issues or you will end up like this guy – in JAIL.
California U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina addressing the Conejo Valley Republican Women candidate’s luncheon today
Bad news for Democrat California U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer from the Rasmussen polling folks this afternoon.
California Senator Barbara Boxer is now the latest Democratic incumbent to find herself in a tightening race for reelection.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely California voters finds Boxer with narrow leads over her three leading Republican challengers, including newcomer Tom Campbell.
As in much of the country, the story may turn in part on the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, even though support for it is higher in California than nationally.
In California, 49% favor the health care plan, while 48% oppose it. But as in other states, the emotion is on the side of the opponents: Just 25% of California voters Strongly Favor the plan while 39% Strongly Oppose it.
Perhaps even more significantly, 55% of California voters rate the U.S. economy as poor, while just seven percent (7%) think itâ€™s good or excellent. Golden State voters are evenly divided over whether the economy is improving: 36% say itâ€™s getter better, while 35% say itâ€™s getting worse. Twenty-five percent (25%) believe itâ€™s staying about the same.
â€œAny incumbent who polls below 50% at this point in the season is considered potentially vulnerable,â€ noted Scott Rasmussen, president of Rasmussen Reports. â€œHowever, vulnerable incumbents still have the power of their office and still have a decent chance of winning. The Democratic leaning political gravity of California will certainly give Senator Boxer a boost in that effort.â€
Here are the poll results:
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is only behind by three points after having announced her candidacy in November 2009. Tom Campbell who until this week was running for California Governor and who has twice before run for the U.S. Senate is behind by 4 points. Chuck DeVore who has been running against Boxer for over a year trails by 6 points.
As Rasmussen points out, this polling is more about Boxer than it is the three GOP challengers. But, the significance of this poll is that for whatever reasons Boxer and the Democrats will have to spend her $6 million campaign war chest in order to defend this seat.
A clear advanatge goes to Carly Fiorina who has amassed campaign cash far in excess of her two competitors. There is little doubt that with a contested seat that she will be able to call upon her national Republican supporters to provide more. And, then there is also her substantial personal wealth which in a close race can always be called upon.
I attended the Conejo Valley Republican Woman candidate’s luncheon today where Carly Fiorina addressed the faithful. I will have more on this later, including my brief interview with Carly.

Black Chamber of Commerce, President and CEO Harry Alford accused Senator Boxer (D-CA) of playing race politics during an EPW Committee hearing on green jobs.
Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer has always had weak opponents when running in California elections. If the GOP can mount any sort of campaign this time, Boxer should have enough negatives to be drummed out of the Senate.
