Who would have thunk it! A local government project that was sold as a good “investment” into the future of downtown development can not pay the bills. The Owensboro Riverpark is seeking a local government bailout. The best part is this gem from WFIE…
Riverpark board member David Scott says becoming financially stable is a must in order to continue it’s vital role in downtown development.
Maybe it would have been better to leave the businesses there that had been forcibly removed in the early 1990’s. If a business can’t pay the bills then they go out of business. Not the Riverpark. My guess is that the Riverpork will get their dirty money. All the while the politicians will lecture the public on the need for this boondoggle and in the same breath tout their “leadership” in this crisis.
Just the same old game…
The latest Rasmussen polling report on the 2010 Senate race in Kentucky shows that Rand Paul’s campaign has only been gaining steam. This can be attributed to Dr. Rand Paul’s tireless efforts to meet the voters in Kentucky. Rasmussen says that:
Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson and Rand Paul, an opthamologist and the son of Congressman Ron Paul, remain ahead of Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo. Now, however, the GOP hopefuls also are beating state Attorney General Jack Conway.

Thank you for everyone who donated to Dr. Rand Paul.
This post over at Red State is a bit lengthy but contains many gems:
He only became a Republican during graduate school after supporting the big government Clinton and, conveniently, after the 1994 Republican Revolution. Rand Paul of course set up the anti-tax “Taxpayers United” at the time and was voting in Republican primaries.
Most troubling: “Grayson went on to attend Harvard, majoring in government and becoming involved almost immediately in Harvard’s prestigious Institute of Politics. There, Grayson developed his conviction that government’s role should be to help solve society’s problems and that it often takes stepping across party lines to do it.” Emphasis mine.
What kind of conservative proclaims “his conviction it’s government’s role to solve society’s problems and that it often takes stepping across party lines to do it”???
More evidence of his liberalism is the undisputed fact that he recently keynoted a Global Warming Presentation. The presentation by definition assumed that Global Warming is happening and that humans could do something about reversing it i.e. “how Kentucky can respond to the challenge of global warming and climate change.” Wherever you stand on the debate there’s no question such a presentation was geared toward intervention of some form by the government. The hosts of the event were campus environmental activists and the event itself was part of a national effort coordinated by the hard left advocacy group Focus the Nation.
There is a world of difference between Rand Paul and Trey Grayson. Dr. Paul has built his private medical practice and pays taxes. Grayson’s weaved a political career that is based on consuming Dr. Paul’s and other’s taxes. Grayson will be another Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul will be a Jim DeMint. Rand Paul will bring in an army of activists to overturn the special interests while Grayson/McConnell will only further entrench them.

Rand Paul Tea Party Video
Over at Rand Paul’s Website we see this story:
Christian leaders are rising up against the health care plan proposed by Senator Harry Reid, claiming it “is actually the worst bill we’ve seen so far on the life issues.” The bill would allow federal funding for abortions and make no distinction between health care and killing – a common thread we’ve seen in health care proposals of late.
A vote on the legislation is likely to come as early as Saturday night, where 60 votes will be needed to pass this gargantuan government takeover of the health industry.
In addition to his dedication to free market health solutions, Dr. Paul believes life begins at conception, and will always vote against federal funding of abortion.
We all know that abortion can be a divisive issue. What does Dr. Rand Paul believe? Like his father he believes strongly that life begins at conception. However, unlike other “pro-life” politicians Dr. Rand Paul has a plan for saving lives sooner rather than later.
