The Pelosi/Reid Era of Sunshine and Gumdrops continues apace.

When they kick at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun?
When the law break in
How you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting on death row?

Harry Reid blasts ‘mean-spirited’ Republicans who want to cut taxpayer funded cowboy poetry festival

Ha! If there were any real cowboys left in Nevada this blood-soaked ghoul would not have been reelected.

Amid calls for cuts to the federal budget, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid defended the National Endowment for the Arts during a floor speech Tuesday, calling Republican proposals “mean-spirited” and saying events like government-funded poetry festivals should not be sacrificed to reduce the deficit.

“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1, eliminates National Public Broadcasting. Now, that is really saying a lot, madam president. It eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts. These programs create jobs,” Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said. “The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”

The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, held in Elko, Nevada since 1985, brings in thousands of performers, artists and poets for the week-long festival. The U.S. Senate passed a resolution in 2000 honoring the event.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
