Danny Davis: We won't do a thing till it's over over there

Danny Davis speaking at the Columbus Park forum as reported in the Austin Weekly.

Robert Dallas, a former political advisor for Harold Washington and Jesse Jackson, and a former Republican candidate for office, said he would propose turning the old downtown post office at 420 W. Van Buren into a complex with a shopping mall, hotels, schools and a high-speed rail system. He said he would lobby Congress and the city for funding.

Davis said the U.S. first has to get out of Iraq before funding new projects.

"The United States is broke," said Davis. "We just spent $256 billion on the war. Anything is a good idea—as far as an idea—but we don’t live off ideas."
Bin Laden's target is our Economy. Read his Sermon for the Feast of the Sacrifice,

They carried out the raid by means of enemy planes in a courageous and splendid operation the like of which mankind had never before witnessed. They smashed the American idols and damaged its very heart, the Pentagon. They struck the very heart of the American economy, rubbed America's nose in the dirt and dragged its pride through the mud. The towers of New York collapsed, and their collapse precipitated an even greater debacle: the collapse of the myth of America the great power and the collapse of the myth of democracy; people began to understand that American values could sink no lower. The myth of the land of freedom was destroyed, the myth of American National security was smashed and the myth of the CIA collapsed, all praise and thanks to Allah.
[***]
To sum up: America is a great power possessed of tremendous military might and a wide-ranging economy, but all this is built upon an unstable foundation which can be targeted, with special attention to its obvious weak spots. If it [America] is hit in one hundredth of those spots, God willing, it will stumble, wither away and relinquish world leadership and its oppression.
Thumb your nose at Bin Laden Congressmen Davis and revnovate the darn Post Office. It's sat there empty long before this war. Bin Laden's goal was to drive us into an economic depression and he's failed. Let's keep building.

After thought: My wife sang in a Christmas pagent with Congressman Davis. He read from the Bible and I'm certain he sounds exactly like God. His voice fills a Church. But reading him here and he sounds like one of the weakest of those weak spots Bin Laden sees in us.

PS: This was held at the Columbus Park Field house. I tried to take some pics Monday but there was some big event going on inside. It looks great and the Parks been renovated too.

what happened to the four-post a week limit? no self-control?

"For now, at least, try to limit your posts to a couple-few a week. We have a lot of bloggers invited and it could get way out of hand."

wonderin' aloud...

Billiam,

Wasn't Danny Davis Rev. Sun myong Moon's altar boy recently?

I seem to remeber a tin-foil hat being involved as well.

...excepting most of the post based on Robert Dallas's chances vs A Snowball in Hades, I would wholeheartedly agree that on Judgement Day, I may be confused over whether it's Him, or my Congressman.

Yeah, Bill,

it did happen:

Washington Post:

At the March 23 ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) wore white gloves and carried a pillow holding an ornate crown that was placed on Moon's head. The Korean-born businessman and religious leader then delivered a long speech saying he was "sent to Earth . . . to save the world's six billion people. . . . Emperors, kings and presidents . . . have declared to all Heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is none other than humanity's Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent."

Yep, Progressive No Filberts in that bag.

JIM ASCOTT! OPA!

Ah, Danny Davis, he'll stop at nothing to duck a question regarding his years of inefficiency and bloviance. We should have a primary system for all offices like we do for municipal offices, where every one runs in one open primary with there being a runoff between the top 2 candidates if no one gets a majority. It ensures every elected official gets a majority and it dilutes the power of party machines in their primaries.

I'm guessing that this quote is a joke, but can't really be sure.

Let's see, $300 BILLION and counting in Iraq/Afganistan and a continuing and expanding trade deficit of BILLIONS. What about economic depression don't you understand?

...that we're not in one.

Renovate the Post Office.

Anonymous,  4:08 PM  

its scary that Davis can't distinguish between military spending and other actions the government could take to renovate the post office. probably they wouldn't have to do anything-sell it to a developer and make some money for the taxpayers on the deal. I'm voting for Ascot.

Bill Baar 5:35 PM  

...no kidding anon 4:08... the gov should be making money off the post office... not spending it.

If they thought a little creatively about it.
