Now first, let me say that I do not always agree with Michael Savage, I am not a sycophant of anyone (he isn't, either). In fact, I don't think I have ever linked to him before. He is based in San Francisco and is a moody talk-show host that gets angry and despondent at the drop of a hat, in true New York style (which is where he is from). He is on the fringe of the far right-wing about 15% of the time, sometimes to the right of Pat Buchanan. But, he gets it right on the borders, Homeland Security, and liberalism in general. He is a best-selling author of three books, The Savage Nation, The Enemy Within, and Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder.
But back to the guest.
Mr. Schumer seemed genuinely surprised that he was asked to be a guest, he has to know that Savage has called him a schmuck too many times to count. But the nature of this issue is too important to let politics get in the way. Many feel that way, I know that I certainly do. And so does Schumer. So, technically, I can now honestly say that there has been at least one issue that I have sided with him, Hillary, and a host of other Democrats that I usually disagree with, sharply.
As as I commented on The Logic Lifeline earlier today, a very very hot place, just just got very very cold, very very fast. To which he replied:
For one brief moment, the snowball has a chance.
Anyway, here is what Schumer plugged, straight from his website. Here is the beginning:
On Monday a $6.8 billion dollar deal put the operation and control of the major New York and New Jersey ports in the control of a firm in the United Arab Emirates and owned by the Government of Dubai, Dubai Ports World. Today, Senators Chuck Schumer, Tom Coburn, Frank Lautenberg, and Chris Dodd are being joined by Reps. Chris Shays, Vito Fossella and Mark Foley in sending a letter to Treasury Secretary John Snow urging him to review the deal immediately.
I urge all people that think this is just about as stupid of an idea that could ever be had, to get behind these men and get this thing stalled, and eventually stopped. We cannot allow something like this to be ramrodded through without more review and more debate. This is just too sensitive of an issue. This is an issue that both conservatives and liberals can and should agree on. But to make it work, we need everyone that wants this stopped to make some noise and let the President, our representatives, and our senators know that we want this stopped, and we want it stopped now.
