Progress In Iraq Is Bad For Democrats

House Majority Whip James Clyburn(D-South Carolina) claims that good news in Iraq could pose a real problem for Democrats. Duh.

American Socialism

There's no two ways about it. Socialism is on the rise here in America. We see it's signs everyday with our politicians and the rising popularity of certain ideas and plans. The government wanting to regulate what kind of politics must be heard on the airwaves with the Fairness Doctrine, discriminatory overtaxing of the rich, universal healthcare and politicians wanting to take the profits from free market businesses and give them to the government.

The overtaxing of the rich and taking of profits seem to be the most popular in this country. And I'm not sure why. What have they done to be targeted and discriminated against like that? We're told, from the time we're little kids, to work hard, make something of ourselves and become a success. But then, when we do, they want to punish us for it. Can someone please explain that to me. "What you make isn't your's. It belongs to everyone". That's not America. That's Cuba. That's Venezuela. America is supposed to be a country where we succeed or fail on our own merits. Not a country where the government takes what we make and distributes it amongst the masses. A country where we're not penalized for making it. At least that's what I always thought. If we're not careful, we could wake up one cold November morning next year and find that we have a quasi-Socialist headed to the White House.

A Perfect Example Of Liberal Ignorance

We all know that if you want people to come to this country legally, you're a racist. And a commenter on this blog lets us know that. In my post "Stick To You Guns" about the Maricopa County Sheriff who's refusing to to take down the hotline to report criminals, RudeBoyMurphy said the following:
I notice it says they are 'analysing the tips, but haven't acted on any yet'...
Does that mean the pointy white hoods are still at the dry-cleaners?
That's it Murphy, show us that wonderful Liberal logic.

More On The CNN/YouTube "Revolutionary" Debates

There was a piece in yesterdays paper called "The Debates Get Dumber And Dumber!" (you may need to register to read it). Now, I agree, in principle, with Kathleen Parker in that these YouTube debates are ridiculous and that Republicans shouldn't "play buffoon for the masses" but, like I said the yesterday, I don't think Republicans should decline. What they should do is demand a real debate.

Republicans Throw A Hissy Fit

First it was the Democrats with the FNC debates and now some Republicans have yet to agree to the CNN/YouTube debate. Only two have agreed to take part, John McCain and Ron "9/11 Was Our Fault" Paul.

Look, guys, I know the YouTube format for a debate is stupid but don't act like the Democratic candidates and refuse to take part. Yes, chances are you're going to get dumber questions than they did, but show that you have a backbone and do it.

We Support The First Amendment

So long as it's for something we agree with. That's the message I'm getting from extreme Liberal groups like MoveOn.org, Campaign for America's Future and blogs like KOS. They want to start targeting companies who advertise on FNC to get them to stop.

They're especially pissed at Bill O'Reilly, who day in and day out exposes their extreme hatred and bigotry.
The groups have successfully pressured Democratic presidential candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to get Home Depot Inc. to stop advertising there
We always knew Democratic candidates were puppets, now we know who their puppetmasters are.

You'll Laugh At This

Take a look at the call letters the FCC handed this station in Hawaii. I thought they were cracking down on obscene language, not expanding it.

Stick To Your Guns

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is refusing to take down the hot line he set up for people to report illegals in his county. Right on, brother. That's like telling people to do away with 911. Isn't reporting crime a good thing? He's also taken it to a new level by baring illegals from visiting inmates in jail. This man is my hero.

More Star Trek News

The other day I posted a story about someone named Zackary Quinto being close to inking the deal to play a young Mr. Spock in the upcoming Star Trek movie. Well, today at Comicon it was made official. What was also made official is that Leonard Nemoy will also reprise his role as Mr. Spock and that they are trying to find a way for Shatner to reprise his role as Kirk. Though no casing of a young Kirk as of yet. Also released today was a new teaser poster for the movie.

If you read the comments on that second link, someone called MP wants Jamie Bamber to play young Kirk. For those that don't know, Bamber plays Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama on Battlestar Galactica. I could see him as Kirk. He's not a big name star and he's well known by Sci Fi fans. I think that's a damn good suggestion.

New Nickname

First we were referred to as Nazis, and now, in this world of psychotic Muslim extremists, Republicans are being called Jihadists. If Elizabeth Edwards wants a better political dialog, perhaps she should talk to her own party.

Wednesday Hero

This Weeks Solider Was Suggested By Robert

Lt. General Lewis B.
Lt. General Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller
June 26, 1898 - October 11, 1971

Lieutenant General Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller was a colorful veteran of the Korean War, four World War II campaigns, and expeditionary service in China, Nicaragua, and Haiti. He is the Marine to win the Navy Cross five times for heroism and gallantry in combat earing him the distinction of being the most decorated Marine in the history of the USMC.

A Marine officer and enlisted man for 37 years, General Puller served at sea or overseas for all but ten of those years, including a hitch as commander of the "Horse Marines" in China. Excluding medals from foreign governments, he won a total of 14 personal decorations in combat, plus a long list of campaign medals, unit citation ribbons and other awards. In addition to the Navy Crosses, the highest honor the Navy can bestow, he holds its Army equivalent, the Distinguished Service Cross. A list of his awards can be found here.

Born 26 June 1898, at West Point, Virginia, the general attended Virginia Military Institute until enlisting in the Marine Corps in August 1918. He was appointed a Marine Reserve second lieutenant 16 June 1919, but due to force reductions after World War I, was placed on inactive duty ten days later. He rejoined the Marines as an enlisted man to serve with the Gendarmerie d'Haiti, a military force in that country under a treaty with the United States. Most of its officers were U. S. Marines, while its enlisted personnel were Haitians.

After almost five years in Haiti, where he saw frequent action against the Caco rebels, Puller returned in March 1924 to the United States. He was commissioned a Marine second lieutenant that same month, and during the next two years, served at the Marine Barracks, Norfolk, Virginia, completed the Basic School at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and served with the 10th Marine Regiment at Quantico, Virginia.

In July of 1926, Puller embarked for a two-year tour of duty at the Marine Barracks, Pearl Harbor. Returning in June 1928, he served in San Diego, California, until he joined the Nicaraguan National Guard Detachment that December. After winning his first Navy Cross in Nicaragua, he returned to the United States in July 1931 to enter the Company Officers Course at the Army Infantry School, Fort Benning, Georgia. He completed the course in June 1932 and returned to Nicaragua the following month to begin the tour of duty that brought him a second Navy Cross.

In January 1933, Puller left Nicaragua for the United States. A month later he sailed from San Francisco to join the Marine Detachment of the American Legation at Peiping, China. There, in addition to other duties, he commanded the famed "Horse Marines." Without coming back to the United States, he began a tour of sea duty in USS AUGUSTA of the Asiatic Fleet. In June 1936 he returned to the United States to become an instructor in the Basic School at Philadelphia. He left there in May 1939 to serve another year as commander of the AUGUSTA's Marine Detachment, and from that cruiser, joined the 4th Marine Regiment at Shanghai, China, in May 1940.

After serving as a battalion executive and commanding officer with the 4th Marines, Puller sailed for the United States in August 1941. In September, he took command of the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division, at Camp Lejeune. That Regiment was detached from the 1st Division in March 1942 and the following month, as part of the 3rd Marine Brigade, sailed for the Pacific theater. The 7th Regiment rejoined the 1st Marine Division in September 1942, and Puller, still commanding its 1st Battalion, went on to win his third Navy Cross at Guadalcanal.

The action that brought him that medal occurred on the night of October 24-25 1942. For a desperate three hours his battalion, stretched over a mile-long front, was the only defense between vital Henderson Airfield and a regiment of seasoned Japanese troops. In pouring jungle rain the Japanese smashed repeatedly at his thin line, as General Puller moved up and down its length to encourage his men and direct the defense. After reinforcements arrived, he commanded the augmented force until late the next afternoon. The defending Marines suffered less than 70 casualties in the engagement while 1400 of the enemy were killed and 17 truckloads of Japanese equipment were recovered by the Americans.

After Guadalcanal, Puller became executive officer of the 7th Marines. He was fighting in that capacity when he won his fourth Navy Cross at Cape Gloucester in January 1944. There, when the commanders of the two battalions were wounded, he took over their units and moved through heavy machine-gun and mortar fire to reorganize them for attack, then led them in taking a strongly fortified enemy position.

In February 1944, Puller took command of the 1st Marines at Cape Gloucester. After leading that regiment for the remainder of the campaign, he sailed with it for the Russell Islands in April 1944. He went on to command it at Peleliu in September and October 1944. He returned to the United States in November 1944, named executive officer of the Infantry Training Regiment at Camp Lejeune in January 1945, and took command of that regiment the next month.

In August 1946, Puller became Director of the 8th Marine Corps Reserve District, with headquarters at New Orleans, Louisiana. After that assignment, he commanded the Marine Barracks at Pearl Harbor until August 1950, when he arrived at Camp Pendleton, California, to re-establish and take command of the 1st Marines, the same regiment he had led at Cape Gloucester and Peleliu.

Landing with the 1st Marines at Inchon, Korea, in September 1950, he continued to head that regiment until January 1951, when he was promoted to brigadier general and named Assistant Commander of the 1st Marine Division. That May he returned to Camp Pendleton to command the newly reactivated 3rd Marine Division in January 1952. After that, he was assistant at division commander until he took over the Troop Training Unit, Pacific, at Coronado, California, that June. He was promoted to major general in September 1953, and in July 1954, assumed command of the 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune. Despite his illness, he retained that command until February 1955, when he was appointed Deputy Camp Commander. He served in that capacity until August, when he entered the U. S. Naval Hospital at Camp Lejeune prior to retirement.

In 1966, General Puller requested to return to active duty to serve in Vietnam, but was turned down because of his age. He died 11 October 1971 in Hampton, Virginia, after a long illness. He was 73.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Fruit Causes Global Warming

Elizabeth Edwards has stated that, to help in the fight against global warming, she may never eat another tangerine.

Yeah, don't do something stupid like give up the privet jet or the big mansion.
E! Online is reporting that someone named Zachary Quinto from Heroes, don't watch the show so I don't know who he is, is very close to closing a deal to play Mr. Spock in the upcoming Star Trek movie. And this is what I've been worried about. Remember how people reacted to Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in the Pirates movies? Look close to how these two women react to the news. They're going to turn this movie into a "insert star name here" movie and not a Star Trek movie. They're only going to care about who's in it and how hot they are and not the movie. The big rumor going around is that Matt Damon will play James Kirk. If that happens it will officially kill the movie. At least for me. The official cast announcement will be make later this week at Comicon. If J.J. Abrams is going to commit blasphemy and make this, I wish he would cast unknowns.

Leave al-Qaeda Alone

That's what would have happened had singer John Mellencamp been president in 2001 when 2,996 innocent people were killed. Rarely has the term "Libtard" been so applicable.

God Bless Our Court System

I wish I could say I was surprised when I heard that the judge let him go free, but, as I've stated a few times before, nothing surprises me in this world anymore. He spoke English, the court had translators and the Washington Post found three in one night on their own. I wonder what this judge is going to say when he does this again?

YouTube/CNN Debates

Apparently I'm supposed to be part of what's become known as the "youtube generation". So then, why do I think this YouTube/CNN debate is so stupid? I'm all for the public getting involved in politics and putting politicians feet to the fire, but I've never been one to need a gimmick to do it. Why not just have voters come in and ask question in person? You can't turn it to CNN without them hyping this thing. And some of the videos are retarded. Idiots asking if the camera makes their boobs look big. And it was a guy. The Democratic debate is tomorrow, or today depending on when you're reading this, and I think I'm going to be cutting my toenails at that time. The Republican debate is September 17. The new television season will have started by then so there might be something on by then to watch. If not then I might be working on my Christmas layout.

I Have A New Hero

I've never hyped a Wednesday Hero post before, but I have to with this one. When you read about this soldier coming up next week you will be in awe. He is the true embodiment of a Hero. A long and decorated career with the Marines.

Fred Phelps Is Scary

The "Rev." Fred Phelps and Keith Olbermann must be the very best of friends. Both are close minded, hate monger biggots who hate Bill O'Reilly. In a recent sermon leader of the "God Hates Fags" Westboro Baptist Church called the FNC juggernaut the spawn of the Devi, a spin doctor for his father the Devil, demon-possessed messenger of Satan and a hell-bound blaspheming hypocrite. Read some of the Liberal blogs and you'll find that they agree with Phelps.
A federal judge on Thursday dismissed former CIA operative Valerie Plame’s lawsuit against members of the Bush administration in the CIA leak scandal.
Really? I wonder why? Could it be because she was suing the wrong people? This sad excuse of a woman is doing everything she can to keep her name in the headlines.

Health Insurance Lies

We've all heard the line. "47 million Americans don't have have health insurance". There's even a film out about it. Well, according to a 2005 U.S. census there are some things they aren't telling us. Of those 47 million; about 10 million are illegals, 14 million are eligible for Medicaid but don't apply, some are actually in between insurance plans and a whole list of others. Another thing we hear is that they don't have insurance because they can't afford it. Well, according to the same census, 8 million make more than $75,000/year and another 8 million make between $50,000 and $75,000/yr. I think they can afford it. So, of that original 47 million uninsured Americans, there are, by these numbers, 40 million that are either ineligible because they're not U.S. citizens or just don't apply for it.

Why aren't these facts in that aforementioned film?

One last thing. On the CNN page, read the part about the "free" health insurance in France.

Enough Already

Sen. Barack Obama wants schools here in America to teach Kindergarteners sex education. Why can't we just let kids be kids? I don't care if it's appropriate and inappropriate touching or how to put a condom on, it's not the governments job to teach morality. I always thought that was up to the parents.

Cpl. Clinton Warrick (Soldier On The Left)
Medic with the 2nd Platoon, 300th Military Police Company

Even after having been thrown several meters, knocked unconscious, set aflame and buried under rubble all as a result of a suicide-vehicle-borne IED, a Fort Riley medic braved small-arms fire to save the lives of fellow Soldiers and Iraqi policemen last year.

Cpl. Clinton Warrick received the Army's third highest award for valor during a June 18, 2007 ceremony at Riverside Park for his actions during a Sept. 18, 2006, insurgent attack at the Al Huryia Iraqi Police Station.

Maj. Gen. Carter Ham (soldier on the right), commanding general of the 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley, present Cpl. Warrick the Silver Star and other awards before his family and friends, and his former 300th MP Co. platoon leader, company commander and first sergeant.

"This is one of Fort Riley's great Soldiers - one of our real, no-kidding heroes," Maj. Gen. Ham said at the ceremony. "It is right and proper that we come here to present you this award for valor. It is heroes like this who make our Army the best in the world and our nation so strong."

What Was I Smoking?

I'm looking through a lock box I keep. Inside are some personal things I don't want destroyed in case of a fire or something. One of the things I keep inside is a small notepad that I would write in with whatever crap that may have popped into my head. A predecessor to to Random Thoughts if you will. Anyway, while reading the notepad I came across a few things I'd written down that, at the time, I though were really deep.

1. All we are is the result of what we have thought... The mind is everything... What we thin, we become.

2. Sometimes things happen because they are supposed to... however, it's the things that have no reason for being that kill us every minute of every day.

I have a couple more that I'll share at a later date that are a little better. They're poems of sorts. But I notice that some of the things I'd written are gone. Of them was a poem I'd written shortly after my dad died that I really liked and another was short story that, while wasn't very good, had it's moments.

Give It Time

Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch, commander of the Third Infantry Division, has said that the troops need until at least Spring of 2008 to see if the recent troop surge, that's only been in effect for four weeks, will work or not.
He implied that an early withdrawal would amount to an abandonment of Iraqi civilians who he said had rallied in support of the American and Iraqi troops, and would leave the civilians exposed to renewed brutality by extremist groups. "When we go out there, the first question they ask is, 'Are you staying?'" he said. "And the second question is, 'How can we help?'" He added, "What we hear is, 'We’ve had enough of people attacking our villages, attacking our homes, and attacking our children.'"

But don't tell this members of Congress. They apparently know better than the troops on the ground.
The United Nations has said that it can no longer afford to feed the 90 million people in Africa it's World Food Program has been helping for the past five years.
Josette Sheeran, WFP executive director, said in an interview with the Financial Times: "In a world where our contributions are holding fairly steady, this [cost increase] means we are able to reach far less people."
Perhaps it's not only about contributions holding steady. Maybe something should be done about the corrupt governments of these countries who are keeping the people in such conditions.

More Problems With Immigration II

Convicted sex offender, Terapon Adhahn, lead police to the body of 12-year-old Zina Linnik. Convicted in 1990 for raping a family member and this piece of shit wasn't deported back to Thailand? Thank you Presidents Clinton and both Bush's and every member of Congress since 1990 for not doing a damn thing about our massively flawed immigration mess. I hold each and every one of you partially responsible for this because you put your own interests and egos over protecting the people of this country.

Here's a shocker. I did a search on CNN, Reuters, AP and MSNBC for this and only the AP had a story about it.

China tries to play Mother Nature. So long as she doesn't take any bribes, she should be okay.

Faith In Politics

Can someone explain this to me. It's like it's some sort of contest to see whose holier than thou. We see Republicans trying to out-Conservative each other. "I'm more Conservative than you." "I'm more Reagan-esq than you." And now the Dems are trying to out-God Republicans. "I'm more religious than you" Well, I believe in God more than you do". I mean, when I vote for someone their religious beliefs are the last thing on my mind. Of all the things to judge a candidate on, religion is near the bottom.

Wednesday Hero

This Weeks Hero Was Suggested By Sunni Kay

Ryan Rahe has been active in the Special Olympics since he was in Middle School. The now 25-year-old has won quite a few medals over the years, but not all of his medals are at his Tennessee home. Some of them have been sent, by Ryan, to soldiers fighting the War On Terror for "good luck".

Jayne Rahe, Ryan's mother, said the idea of sending support to the soldiers in harm's way came about when she and Ryan were talking about news coverage of the war in Iraq. Jayne visited www.anysoldier.com and discovered how she and Ryan could let the men and women in Iraq know their efforts are appreciated.

Ryan, named 2006 Special Olympics Athlete of the Year for the Blount County Sports Hall of Fame, said he felt good when he received the box from the soldiers. He said if he could talk with them face to face, he would say, "Thank you."

The Rahes plan to continue sending care packages to soldiers, including the medals.

"Ryan is a pretty generous fellow," Jayne said. "He doesn't mind giving things to people."

In a letter that Ryan received, Chief Warrant Officer 2 Anthony W. Grillett wrote:
"I and the Battalion can never thank you enough for sending us your medals. They have brought us luck and good fortune, and now as we prepare to deploy home we send them back to you with our eternal gratitude.

That you would send us something so precious is a reflection of your character. As you called us heroes; to me you are the hero. For I believe it is not who you are, or what you are that makes you a hero, it is the ability to give all especially when it is never asked.

Your courage to face the challenges required earning those medals and then so freely send them to us here in Iraq will forever make you a hero to me. I will never be able to truly express in words how honored I was when I read the letter from your Mother. It truly humbles me and shows me that what I fight for in our country will always be worth the small sacrifices asked of me. Thank you again."

Sometimes a hero is one who sacrifices everything in their life to help others. And sometimes a hero is one who sacrifices nothing more than their time.

What's Your Carbon Footprint

A few days ago I did a post with a link to a site called Carbon Footprint. On that site you can calculate what your carbon footprint is and determine how much you're polluting the environment. According to the site, the average American's CF is 19,000 kg, or, if I'm calculating this right, 41,888 lbs./per year. Mine came out to 16,590 kg, or 36,575 lbs./per year. I'm below average. So, Mr. Gore and his his disciples can stop bitching to me because I guarantee mine's a hell of a lot lower than theirs.

However, there are some caveats. One being that it's a "man is killing the planet site". I'm not saying their numbers are inflated, but you have to consider the possibility. The second is that they add a few kg on based on averages in the U.K. that you have nothing to do with. They don't even ask anything about Food and Drink or Recreation and Services.

And They Work For Peanuts

Tour Of The Poor

Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, is planning on using the poor working class of America as his step-ladder in his attempt to win the presidency in 2008. You know, in between his $1200 haircuts that is.

How Many Trees?

John Buckley, of Carbon Footprint, estimates that it would take the planting of 100,000 trees to make up for the damage that the Live Earth concerts did to the environment yesterday. Saying that it may have produced more than 74,000 tons of pollution. But it's only the message that's important, not the way it's given. If we have to put tons of Earth killing gasses into to air to tell people things they're already force fed on a daily basis, then it's worth it. Right?

What I find funny is that some of the people at the London concert, and I'm guessing it wasn't the only one, didn't even care what it was about. They just wanted to see their favorite singers. Some didn't even know who Al Gore was.

I tuned into Sundance a few times to check out what was going on. And right behind the eco-troubadours was a MASSIVE wall of lights telling people what to do. I don't care how many energy efficient bulbs and what not they used, that's a lot of wasted electricity.

A Challenge

Here's a challenge for you. The next time you're in contact with one of the representatives from your home state ask them to use the terms "Muslim extremist" or "radical Islam". Chances are most won't. There are a few who're brave enough to call a spade a spade, mostly the ones who hold smaller office. Your state legislatives mostly. Maybe even your Mayor, depending on the city you live in. But once you get to Governor and up most are just a little to cowardly to say it. Radical Islam has been able to infiltrate like Communism and Nazism never could. People are scared to even dare criticize them. With just over 1 billion Muslims around the world, and an estimated 10% of them of the Jihadist variety, psychotic head choppers are everywhere. Hitler and Stalin would be proud.

But Global Warming is the most important issue facing us today.

Another Music Group Slams Live Earth Hypocrisy

The British band, Arctic Monkeys, have let their feelings be known about the upcoming Live Earth concerts on Saturday.
It's a bit patronizing for us 21 year olds to try to start to change the world...Especially when we're using enough power for 10 houses just for (stage) lighting. It'd be a bit hypocritical
I've never heard of the band, but I like their way of thinking. To try and curb the impact that the concerts will have on Mother Earth, the organizers are trying to do what they can. One step involves asking concert goers to carpool or take public transportation. Yeah, millions of people around the world will do just that. I'm sure people in California will carpool to New York rather than fly. Another one of their steps is carbon offseting. They'll pollute the Earth on Saturday, but they'll plant some trees and make a few donations on Sunday to alleviate their guilt.

Al Gore III Arrested

Al Gore III was arrested on yesterday while driving at speeds of 100 miles an hour. When cops pulled him over they found marijuana, Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, Adderall and Soma in his car. This isn't his first brush with the law. He was arrested in 2000 for speeding, in 2002 he was picked up by Military Police near a military base for drunk driving and again in 2003 for possession. I mean, come on, if Al Gore were my dad I'd be a drug addict too.

But I did learn something from this story. For all of us who doubt the power of the Prius, this story proves they at least have speed. 100 MPH in a hybrid? Not bad.

4th Of July Wednesday Hero

On this Fourth Of July, a day in which we celebrate the birth of this great nation, we must also remember the brave men and women who made this day possible. To everyone who has and are currently serving in the United States Military I say Thank You. What you do day in and day out are what make this country great and me proud to live here. The sacrifices you've made for people whom you will never meet face to face will never be forgotten.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

Iran has rejected the request by Oliver Stone to make a documentary about their great leader, Ahmadinejad. I'm not sure why. Do they not know who Stone is?
We should look to him(Fidel Castro) as one of the Earth's wisest people, one of the people we should consult
If Stone could make a documentary that shines a glowing light on Castro, imagine what could do with A-Jad.

President Bush Commutes Lewis Libby's Sentence

President Bush has commuted former Vice Presidential aide, Lewis Libby, sentence from 2 1/2 years in prison to 2 years probation and the $250,000 fine. And, as expected, Democrats are hemming and hawing about it.
As Independence Day nears, we are reminded that one of the principles our forefathers fought for was equal justice under the law. This commutation completely tramples on that principle
-Sen. Charles Schumer
But, I mean, come on, if the President of the United States can get away with lying under oath, can't the aide to the Vice President get off for lying to authorities and obstructing justice? Because that's what he was convicted of. Reading the statement by Sen. Schumer and you'd think he was convicted of leaking the name of a CIA operative or something.

I don't seem to recall Democrats getting too upset with President Clinton actually pardoned 140 people on his last day in office. One of them being his own brother.

Great Lyrics

Billy Boy Arnold
Loving Mother For You

Sister went to milking
She didn't know how
She grabbed a Bull instead of a Cow
Run him momma and run him quick
Sister got the Bull by the hair of his...
