Excerpt: As a U.S. senator during the 1960s, I agonized
over the war in Vietnam. After doing all I could to save our troops
and the Vietnamese people from a senseless conflict,
I finally took my case to the public in my 1972 presidential campaign.
Speaking across the nation, I told audiences
that the only upside of the tragedy in Vietnam was that its enormous cost
lives and dollars would keep any future administration
from going down that road again.
I was wrong.
Today, I am astounded at Obama's decision to escalate
the equally mistaken war in Afghanistan, and as I listen to
our talented young president explain why he is
adding 30,000 troops -- beyond the 21,000 he had added already
-- I can only think: another Vietnam. I hope
I am incorrect, but history tells me otherwise.
Obama might have good reasons for excalating this
war - but I haven't heard them.
Obama said, "I'm conviced this is the right way
to go," but did he give his reasons?
How is fighting Afghanistan/Pakistan going to
Is Obama trying to "reason" with al Qaeda like

"If the left manages to drive through a bill
which is opposed by 65 percent of the country on health care, our commitment should be simple - when
we get a majority, we’re repealing the whole thing. And I want every Democrat who is about to sacrifice
their seat for socialized medicine to understand: after you lose your seat, you’re going to lose the
socialized medicine too."
-- Gingrich, pretending 65% of America loves the cost of the health care
they're not getting, Link
The real message is - if you're going to lose your seat, why not
go down fighting?
The Demo cowards caved in to the Fascist dogs in 1994 and lost

"The other side has no answers. The other side

Excerpt: What's taken place in the year since Obama won
the presidency has turned out to be one of the most dramatic
political about-faces in our history. Elected
in the midst of a crushing economic crisis brought on by a decade of
orgiastic deregulation and unchecked greed, Obama
had a clear mandate to rein in Wall Street and remake the
entire structure of the American economy. What
he did instead was ship even his most marginally progressive
campaign advisers off to various bureaucratic
Siberias, while packing the key economic positions in his White House
with the very people who caused the crisis in
the first place. This new team of bubble-fattened ex-bankers and
laissez-faire intellectuals then proceeded to
sell us all out, instituting a massive, trickle-up bailout and systematically
gutting regulatory reform from the inside.
How could Obama let this happen?
Is he just a rookie in the political big leagues,
hoodwinked by Beltway old-timers?
Or is the vacillating, ineffectual servant of
banking interests who Obama really is?...
There's no other way to say it: Barack Obama,
a once-in-a-generation political talent whose graceful conquest
of America's racial dragons en route to the White
House inspired the entire world, has for some reason allowed
his presidency to be hijacked by sniveling, low-rent
Obama pulled a bait-and-switch on us.
If it were any other politician, we wouldn't
Maybe it's our fault, for thinking he was different.

Excerpt: Six weeks ago, John Boehner (R-Liar) decided
he was fed up with empty, meaningless congressional resolutions.
These largely symbolic measures are taken up
all the time -- it's been routine fare for years -- but Boehner decided
they're now evidence of Democratic negligence.
"These are your hard-earned tax dollars at work," Boehner scoffed.
He apparently didn't persuade his own caucus.
This week, 19 House Republicans unveiled a resolution

holiday. All of those folks intent on "banning references to Christmas"

imaginations, right? -- won't know what hit 'em.

Excerpt: If there is a single game that comes closest
to recapitulating modern existence - it is poker, where quantitative analysis
and calculated deception come together, and where
skill wins out over luck in the long run, except that most people
don’t have the luxury of waiting until then.
President Obama calls himself a pretty good poker
player, with skills honed back when he took part in a regular game
in Springfield, Ill. The other players in that
game - lobbyists and fellow members of the state Senate - describe him
a cautious participant: patient, conservative,
patient, level-headed, patient, affable - and did we mention patient?
That game started more than a decade ago. Today,
Obama confronts more-formidable foes, and for much bigger stakes.
But in his first 10-plus months in office, he
has approached the major issues facing his administration and the country
a poker player’s sensibility. That doesn’t mean
that he necessarily has been dealt good hands. It doesn’t even mean that
he has always played his hands well. He hasn’t.
What he has done, though, is to make an effort to read his opponents,
hold his own cards close, keep a straight face,
and wait, calmly, for the winning play...
So, Obama is letting his enemies roll over him - to set them up for

You know old Adrianna was a hard core conservative

Excerpt: Of course most people know - or should know by
now - that cannabis (the Evil Weed, Marijuana!) doesn't kill anybody.
It is not carcinogenic and appears to be an untapped
source of new medicines.
For those who ARE behind on their information
about cannabis I point you to this pdf Congressional Research report on
Medical Marijuana:Review and Analysis of Federal
and State Policies
This is a special report produced for the US Congress
on your tax dollar. This report is made available to all your legislators
and this represents the information available
to them. It is a little over 50 pages in length and is focused on medical
but the real value is in the details of the report
which clearly show that cannabis is not remotely the health hazard or social
tobacco or alcohol - or other hard drugs - are.
If you read this report you will pretty much know
what you need to know in order to talk about the topic of "marijuana"
like a knowledgeable person and not sound like
the clueless people who just regurgitate US Government propaganda.
