    Transpearancy & Accountability ... Yeah, Right!

      Exactly, now the Secretary of HHS has tax problems as well ... the Gov from Kansas ... does any democrat pay taxes. Many have and are falling. “Our corruption doesn’t count” is that the new working slogan of the Democrat majority.   Democrats...

    They Come Across As Self Absorbed and Greedy

    I live in South Africa, but this is really just my opinion , even when I watch the global news, so this is how I view politics in general. I think the whole political arena is just a huge cover up for a power greater than the puppets on a string. I read an article once on Skull...

    Don't Trust Newt And I Don't Trust Voters

    I recently read an article that states Newt wants to return to Reagan's time and cut taxes in hopes of job creation. He also stated that employment has gone up in the last two months in response to favorable tax legislation. Hmmm, taken at face value who could argue with him...

    Political Games For Votes.

    They are just interested in achieving power and will lie, cheat, deceive, beg and promise for your vote but the day after forget you exist and do whatever they want.

    Veterans Benefits

    Thats not a bad idea but maybe we should spend the money on taking care of veterans when they come home as a priority. There is a real problem with healthcare and benefits and when we fix those problems then consider a tribute to them. Nothing ticks me off more than when I see...

    George Carlin Said Well When It Comes to Politicians.

    It has to be blamed on the morons who keep voting them in. He said it so much better than I ever could, and every election, I just remember the words:  >>Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains...

    I Remember That Day - The Day The World Changed

    I remember the day well. It was a warm day with bright sunshine. I was in work, alone on the 4th floor of the Belmont building. Everyone else had already been moved down to the R&D building in Marcus Hook. Since I supported Phila I had been left behind. The building had long been...

    The True Black Heart Of The Copyright Monopoly

    Insurance companies like to blame Obama Care

    Seem to Only Look Out For Themselves
