Kissel voting present on Fast & Furious, says challenger

North Carolina 8th District Democratic Rep. Larry Kissell (right), who sounded all feisty and full of spunk about the disastrous Obama-Holder Fast & Furious gun-running fiasco a few months ago, has now gone strangely silent about the issue:

The Daily Caller has given Kissell and his spokesman Christopher Schuler several days to respond to questions about this issue. On at least four occasions, an intern or staffer who answered the phone in Kissell’s Washington, D.C., office told TheDC that Schuler was in the office but unavailable to talk about Fast and Furious. TheDC left detailed messages and sent email requests asking for Kissell’s comment. He has not responded.

Richard Hudson, one of Kissell’s 2012 challengers, spurred the Daily Caller’s inquiry by asserting that Kissell, after writing an aggressive letter regarding F&F last June, has now gone underground on the issue:

One of Kissell’s 2012 Republican challengers, Richard Hudson, told TheDC that the Democrat’s continued failure to follow through on a June 3 letter to President Barack Obama demanding answers and accountability for Fast and Furious shows Kissell is more interested in playing politics and getting re-elected than he is in the truth.

“What happened in Fast and Furious is an absolute tragedy, but that tragedy was compounded by the failure of the Obama administration to tell the truth about it,” Hudson told TheDC. “It is apparent that Attorney General Holder did not tell the truth when testifying before Congress and that is unacceptable. I wish I could tell you why Larry Kissell doesn’t feel the same way.”

Hudson is demanding that Kissell, along with the 51 other members of the House who have already done so, call for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder, who was disingenuous at best in recent testimony about Fast & Furious before Congress. Kissell “owes it to the people he represents to come forward and call for Holder’s resignation,” Hudson told The Daily Caller.

Not a Good Economic Sign

Triangle Business Journal reports on October air cargo numbers out of Raleigh-Durham International Airport.


Enplaned cargo totalled 5.7 million pounds, down 21 percent from October 2010, according to the statistics. About 7.7 million pounds of shipped cargo was unloaded at the airport, down 21 percent from October 2010.

Monthly cargo numbers at the airport have been consistently below year-earlier levels, a worrisome trend because cargo volumes typically are considered a leading economic indicator.

Does a Mere Medical Condition Kick Its Legs and Wave Its Arms?

This column puts to shame the anti-science mantra by pro-abortionists that unborn babies are a mere medical condition to be dealt with any way a woman wants. Does a medical condition kick its legs and wave its arms?

NYC Squatters Follow and Scream at Children

More pathetic behavior from the Squatters, this time in New York. From CBS:


In the middle of thousands of protestors yelling and chanting — some kicking and screaming – CBS 2’s Emily Smith found little school kids trying to get to class. Nervous parents led them through the barriers on Wall Street. The NYPD helped funnel the children, anything to ease their fears while some protestors chanted “follow those kids!”

“These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids,” one father said.

“For them it’s horrible. They’re afraid of all the crowds. We’re not even able to get through. They’re just, he’s … very afraid now,” a mother added.

One protester followed a father and his little daughter all the way down the block.
