Look out for a lame duck ~ By Henry Lamb

Henry Lamb lists some of the bills that the Democrats would like to pass during the lame-duck session, which is the period of time following the election on November 2 through the end of the year before the new Congress takes their seats at the beginning 2011.

What happens if any of these bills are passed - and I repeat, any of them - would be so "transformative" that you would not be able to recognize America as you know it now. Just sayin'...

These are only a few of the long list of transformative policies Obama and the Democrats plan to impose on an unsuspecting people. Fortunately, there are enough people watching and reporting that these bills have been blocked so far. The lame-duck session is another matter, however.

There is a strong possibility that the Democrats can lose control of the House, and perhaps the Senate, in the elections Nov. 2. This result is far from a sure thing. Every eligible American must make every effort to vote this year, and vote for the best conservative candidate available. Family, friends and neighbors need to be reminded of the importance of voting this year.

We are just a little more than a month away from the opportunity to save the nation from a generation of Marxist policies now being forced down the nation's throat by a radical Democrat majority.

Let's change that majority.

Editor's note: Listen to this column online.

As the calendar rushes toward the Nov. 2 elections, prospects increase for a bloody "lame-duck" session. There is a laundry list of bills stacked up for passage that have not yet made it to the floor for a vote. After the elections, Democrats who lost will have nothing further to lose and will be eager to get as much of Obama's radical agenda enacted as possible.

Lurking in the shadows is Sen. Chris Dodd's Livable Communities Act (S.1619). This bill will essentially write into domestic law the recommendation set forth in Chapter 10 of Agenda 21.

Since the Clinton era, the federal government has been enticing and coercing local governments to transform their communities into "sustainable communities," as defined by Agenda 21. The Dodd bill brings down the heavy hand of government to force communities to conform. The implementation of Dodd's "livable" or sustainable communities forces the loss of individual freedom, serious reduction of private property rights and the erosion of a free market in real estate.

If enacted during the lame duck session, it must be repealed by the new Congress.

Sen. Feingold's Clean Water Restoration Act (S.787) is high on the priority list for passage. This bill would give to the federal government virtually every drop of water that falls on the United States to the federal government, regardless of whether it winds up in a river, a lake, a stream, a wetland, a prairie pothole, a mud hole or backyard fish pond on private property. Moreover, the bill also gives to the federal government authority to control all activity that may affect these waters, whether the activity occurs on private or public property.

Should this bill become law, it will have to be repealed by the new Congress.

Rep. George Miller's Employee Free Choice Act (H.R.1409), also known as "Card Check" is sure to be on the list for emergency passage. In the House, this bill has 240 co-sponsors; the Senate companion bill (S.560) has 40 co-sponsors. This bill eliminates the right of businesses and workers to conduct an election to determine whether a particular business will become unionized. Card Check allows union bosses to secure a signature on a card from workers in a target business any way they wish. When more than 50 percent of the workers have signed a card, then the business is unionized.

This bill is important to President Obama, and to the Democrats, to repay the unions for their financial support during the 2008 election cycle. The unions poured millions of dollars into Democratic campaigns and provided countless workers in well-organized, get-out-the-vote programs. Labor unions expect, no, demand, Card Check as repayment for their efforts.

This bill would certainly have to be repealed were it enacted in a lame-duck session.
