Bush pro-torture veto inspires me to waterboard...me Sponsor: - Let's assume torture is sometimes right. Then we have to ask ourselves Is it *ever* right to make your neighbor pay for it against her will? That's what Washington does. And DC's chief pain technician (who almost never vetoes excessive spending) has no problem vetoing anti-torture legislation. Simply because it's anti-torture. They start torture with the bad guys, but how long will it be before they torture someone *you* care about? Well at least this move gets our police state further out into the light...and that's good for the Ron Paul revolution. Doyou want to commission an ad like the one in this video?

Representatives Marumoto and Meyer Supports Veto Representatives Barbara Marumoto and Colleen Meyer states the reasons to support Governor Lingle's veto of House Bill 2843: The goal to enhance inspections for invasive species is laudable. However, this bill is objectionable because of its significant impact on the cost of living in Hawaii. The reconfiguration of this fee's computation from a calculation of twenty-foot equivalent unit per container to one based on weight will exponentially increase the fees for cargo coming into the State. These charges will indirectly be passed on to the consumer, who must pay more for goods in Hawaii each time a new tax, tariff, or charge is levied on products entering the State. In conjunction with the recent rise in transportation costs directly linked to the rise in fuel costs, this fee will have a serious impact on families and individuals already stretched with the burdens of rising prices for food, fuel, rent, and other necessities. Second, changing the method by which this fee is calculated will impact industries disproportionately. Carriers shipping food or other heavier goods will be subject to pay a much higher inspection fee, not necessarily because the cargo is a higher-risk commodity, but because it happens to weigh more than other freight packaged in the same sized container. Third, last year my Administration vetoed the law that implemented the $1 inspection fee that this bill now seeks to change; House Bill No. 1066 became Act 009 (Special Session, 2007). I vetoed this ...
US vetoes UN resolution on Isreal settlements blocking democracy [MIRROR] CREDITS: 91177info | 19 February 2011 Hands shot up all around the Security Council on Friday as Brazilian Council President Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti called for those in favor of the resolution condemning Israeli settlement building. When Viotti asked for those opposed one lonely hand shot up that of Susan Rice the American ambassador to the UN. Rice's veto was one more in a long line of vetoes in support of America's ally Israel and it meant that the resolution could not pass in spite of the overwhelming support of more than 115 nations. And so after the vote the first ambassador to speak was the one who cast the veto American ambassador Susan Rice who condemned Israeli settlement building all the while defending her veto. US allies Germany, France and the United Kingdom all disagreed with the veto in a joint statement read by the British ambassador. Palestinian observer Riyad Monsour was joined by Lebanese Ambassador Nawaf Salam after the vote as both men condemned the US veto to reporters gathered outside the Security Council chambers. Each man also vowed to keep on fighting until the Palestinian aspiration to be a nation is realized. Palestinian leaders say talks with Israel are impossible with construction taking place which they say undermines the territorial integrity of their future state. The US cast two vetoes in 2006 when the council tried to pass Arab-backed resolutions that demanded Israel end its military operations against the Gaza Strip. The other four ...

DFL Vows To Uphold Governor Dayton's Vetos A plan to lift Minnesota's moratorium on building new nuclear power plants is on the Republican majority's agenda for the 2011 legislative session. However, it is unlikely to become law. Incoming Senate Majority Leader Ann Koch reminded reporters that Republicans campaigned on removing the nuclear moratorium that has been in place since 1994. Last session, a similar proposal from Republicans passed in the Senate but failed on a 70-62 vote in the House because there is still no permanent storage solution for nuclear waste. But that was when the DFL was held majorities in both the House and the Senate. Should such a measure pass in the 2011 session, it faces opposition and a likely veto from Governor-Elect Mark Dayton. During the campaign Dayton said "It would be highly irresponsible to subject future generations for thousands of years to come to our irresponsible inability to develop alternative energies that are going to require them to inherit that waste with no resolution at all" Republicans would not be able to override Dayton's veto. "The Republicans are far from a veto proof majority" said House Minority Leader Paul Thissen, " and so I am confident that we are going to uphold any vetoes, the legislature is going to uphold any vetoes that Governor Dayton might issue."

British Justice Secretary Vetoes Publication Of Iraq War Minutes Airing Date Feb.24, 2009 Mr.Straw: Quote : "There is a balance to be struck between openness and maintaining aspects of our structure of democratic government," You got to be kidding me. Here's the full article British Justice Secretary Jack Straw on Tuesday vetoed the publishing of the minutes of the cabinet discussions on the legality of the 2003 Iraq invasion, saying that his veto is based on a clause in the Freedom of Information Act. "There is a balance to be struck between openness and maintaining aspects of our structure of democratic government," Straw said in a statement to the parliament. "The damage that disclosure of the minutes in this instance would do far outweighs any corresponding public interest in their disclosure." In January, the British Information Tribunal had upheld an earlier decision by the Information Commissioner Richard Thomas that required the publication of details of the 13th and 17th March 2003 Cabinet meetings when the legality of the Iraq invasion was discussed, and had ordered the government to publish the records of former Prime Minister Tony Blair's Cabinet discussions ahead of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In its efforts to keep the details of the discussions on the legality of the Iraq war, the British government had argued that the Cabinet minutes are not normally released until at least 30 years after the event. Though it had 28 days to appeal the tribunal decision in the High Court, the British government on Tuesday used the ...
Gov. uses line-item veto to trim lawmakers budget In one of his last vetoes as governor, Bill Richardson says no to the food tax. But because of that, the state is looking at a budget shortfall of at least $68 million. Gov. Richardson projects $18 million would come from other line-item vetoes. Thir*** million would be eliminated from early childhood education programs, while another $5 million would come from vetoing tax credits for lower income families. The governor is also proposing dipping into the states reserve and also using $20 million of federal stimulus money. Richardson says if that's not enough, he'll cut agency spending further than the current three percent, which could lead to more furloughs and possible layoffs for state employees. Lawmakers say they put together the budget based on a projected $500 million shortfall. But if that shortfall grows, lawmakers have given Gov. Richardson the power to make cuts without calling them back for another special session.
