Double Standard Senate

http://www.thepeoplesvoice.org/TPV3/media/blogs/blog/11/shepard_anti_freedom_act.jpg

The Democrats blocked a Senate amendment to audit the Fed attached to a spending bill because of what they said was on procedural grounds.
On procedural grounds, the Senate blocked a bid to permit the U.S. comptroller general, who heads the investigative arm of Congress known as the Government Accountability Office, to audit the Federal Reserve system and issue a report.

Democrats who control the Senate blocked the South Carolina Republican's amendment on the grounds that it violated rules prohibiting legislation attached to spending bills. {more}
And yet the Democrat Senate traitors have attached the Hate Crimes Bill to a military appropriations bill. Talk about a double standard.
This is an outrageous manipulation of Senate rules for just one purpose - to keep the unneeded, indefensible Hate Crimes Law from getting a full and fair hearing!

In essence, Majority Leader Reid is sneaking this bill through as an amendment because he knows opposition is growing fast and he fears the bill could not survive on its own. {more}
I could go along with not attaching unrelated bills to other bills but it needs to be applied evenly across the board. But that's not how the slime we call our representatives work. This is a classic example of an unconstitutional maneuver to get an unconstitutional law passed.

Sadly, it may be up to the Republican traitors to stop this.

Both the Audit the Fed Bill and the Hate Crimes Bill need to be debated as stand alone legislation with full disclosure to the American people and with votes reflecting the will of the people.

All we can do at this moment is not to ask, but to demand that our Senators remove the Hate Crime bill from the DOD Authorization Act.

While we're at it, we may as well demand that the DOD receive no funding at all except to bring our troops home and end the illegal occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Not much of a chance of that though. The criminal organizations tend to stick together.

Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states with hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass the federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
