You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President in 2001.
You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.
You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.
You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.
You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us, and we were lied to about the reasons.
You didn't get mad when we spent over $600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.
You didn't get mad when over $10 billion in cash just disappeared in Iraq.
This article may seem a little self-serving, but what the heck, its my website, I can say whatever I like. Thats a little bit of the point here. In my continual search for what competitors are doing, I ran across an article about Patch http://www.ojr.org/ojr/people/robert/201107/1989/Now you may not have heard of Patch, but it is a hyperlocal network of news sites, like OurTown, of which Cincipulse is the local site, except that it does not have an active site in Cincinnati. And there is one other slight difference, Patch is owned by internet giant, AOL, who is pouring massive amounts of money into Patch. More...
Did you happen to catch John McCain's appearance on the Today Show this morning? Ann Curry asked Mr. McCain about his statement that "he will not cooperate with the Administration on anything for the rest of the year." He hemmed and hawed and told us about how hard he is working, but he stuck by that stupid statement. When asked about his former running mate, Sarah Palin and her incendiary comment, that we mustn't "retreat, but reload" and her Facebook page that shows a map of targeted Democratic congressional districts by putting "crosshairs" on the district, Mr. McCain said it was appropriate, "we are in a battleground."
I don't know about you, but I am so worn out by this health care debate in Washington that I can hardly stand to hear the words "heath care" anymore. Republicans are outraged about the bill being signed yesterday, but I'm not sure what they are outraged about. Other than the cost of the legislation, which is, of couse, a great concern, what is in that bill that has conservatives so upset. Let's see:
1) No lifetime limits on health care. I think that's a great thing! I had a cousin who had a lifetime $2 million limit on his health insurance. He surpassed that in a couple of months and had to go on Medicaid for seven years until he passed away. Who do you think paid for those Medicaid expenses? We, the taxpayer, that's who.
I had the opportunity to go to New York last week on business, but while I was there, I managed to sneak in a little sightseeing and shopping. You can't tell from shopping in New York that the country is in a recession. Since many of you won't be able to make the trip this year, I am including a picture of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. It was beautiful.
My arrival back home was not all that exciting...I had a leaky toilet and a flooded bathroom. Fortunately, it was Roto Rooter to the rescue. I called the dispatcher and they were there within the hour and had my leak problem fixed about 20 minutes later.
I did have a little trouble finding their phone number. I called directory assistance and asked for Roto Rooter, I even spelled it out for the operator, but apparently she wasn't listening. "I can't find a listing," she replied, "would that be 'R-h-o-d-a' Rooter?"
As I sit here watching "Dancing With The Stars" and updating the website, I can't help but wonder why?
We've been loyal viewers (it's one of my guilty pleasures), why are they subjecting us to 2 hours of repeat performances in order to get to something that should take 5 minutes....the announcement of the winner. Making us sit through Tom DeLay doing the Texas Two Step should qualify as cruel and unusual punishment. And how could Ashley Hamilton, who looks so good in a tux, look so bad on the dance floor. You could actually see him counting as he waited for his partner. (I did like his sequin jacket though). They're bringing out Jerry Springer and Cloris Leachman next. Somehow I wouldn't be surprised to see Bob Dole trottted out to do a Salsa.
