Is anyone home? I recently wrote to my Senator and my Representative. I outlined a case for impeachment of the president and the vice-president. They wrote to me using “talking points”. My Democratic Senator informed me that there was so little time left in W’s term that impeachment was not practical. Not Practical?
Our founders knew very well the dangers of restricting a free press, which is one of the reasons they specifically protected the right to a free press in the very first article of the Bill of Rights. Perhaps it would be a good idea to review that article carefully at this point in history, since virtually every provision of the Bill of Rights has been compromised in the last seven years:
He does not believe in Evolution! If there was ever a time we need science to solve our problems of energy resources and climate control it is 2009!
He was my last chance at returning to the GOP. The Intelligent Design of the old testament is now running the Republican Party. I see no reason to vote in February as there is no Republican for me.
For years I have been a Secular Humanist and lost many friends over this. I never doubted my lack of faith and now I lack respect for the American Government.
This is a joke that I feel is appropriate for the times. Enjoy! It’s about time there is some humor around here!
**God was missing for six days.. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.**
*He inquired, “Where have you been?”*
*God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, “Look, Michael. Look what I’ve made.”*
*Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, “What is it?”*
*”It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put life on it.. I’m going to call it Earth and it’s going to be a place to test Balance.”*
Paul Simon is dead but I want to talk about him. Not the musical Paul Simon but the political Paul Simon. He had real values. He did valuable things while a politico, did not enrich himself at Government expense, did not cheat or steal from the taxpayers. He talked honestly and openly about government. He had “good values”
How was he different from many of today’s politicians?
He thought that his public office involved him in responsibilty to the people who elected him. How strange today when pork seems to be the goal of politicians.
First and foremost, I’d like to say thanks to you Mr. Thompson for opening up your server space to this exercise in true Democracy.
Next, I’d like to say that I, like many of you out there, am utterly fed up and sick to my stomach, with that band of flatulent cattle that purport to lead this Republic.
Rather than giving into the strong urge of calling that band of thieves, even more names than I already have, I will try to hold a slightly higher road with the views and news that I express here. Again, thank you Mr. Thompson for this chance.
So, to work.
Since the various (mostly Democratic) Presidential candidates have been yammering on about the need for “universal health care” in our country, I thought it might be instructive to share with readers just how such a “universal” system works (or rather DOESN’T) work in another nearby country.
It’s called the Canadian Health System. And while so-called “universal health care” does have many positive aspects, my family’s personal experiences with such a “universal” system have shown that it is FAR from the “nirvana” people south of the border sometimes make it out to be.
Democratic presidential rivals Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama stepped back from a controversy over race Monday night, agreeing that a prolonged clash over civil rights could harm their party's overall drive to win the White House.
The two leading Democratic contenders shifted course as Republicans pointed toward Tuesday's pivotal primary in Michigan, where Mitt Romney and John McCain both pledged to lead a revival for a state and an auto industry ravaged by recession.
President Bush urged OPEC nations on Tuesday to put more oil on the world market and warned that soaring prices could cause an economic slowdown in the United States.
"High energy prices can damage consuming economies," the president told a small group of reporters traveling with him in the Mideast.
Military officials said Monday that about 3,200 Marines are being told to prepare to go to Afghanistan — a move that will boost combat troop levels in time for an expected Taliban offensive this spring.
Once complete, the deployment would increase U.S. forces in Afghanistan to as much as 30,000, the highest level since the 2001 invasion after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
The notices come as explosions rocked Kabul's most popular luxury hotel Monday, killing at least six people, including one American and a journalist from Norway. Officials said the assault on the Serena Hotel by militants may signal a new era of Taliban attacks.
