Some observation on this weeks news.........
WASHINGTON (CNN) – Some of Sarah Palin's former campaign aides are frustrated with the Alaska governor for remarking in a lengthy, freewheeling speech that she had refused to pray with them before last October's vice presidential debate.
Palin told the story in a speech to a GOP dinner in Alaska last Friday.
"So I'm looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra," she said of the moments before the debate. "And the McCain campaign, love 'em, you know, they're a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray." (Just the people who plucked her from obscurity and tried to get her elected VP of the US, I guess they were not the right kind of christian)
Rep, Bachman R-MN
Bachman calls for armed insurrection to put a stop to Democrats.
Rep, Bachman introduces legislation to make the dollar the official currency of the US to stop Obama from changing it to a universal world currency. (Those winters apparently do affect your brain in MN)
Boehner introduces budget with no numbers. (????)
God the Republican Party (?) must be so proud of their elected leaders. And lets not forget Joe the Plumber. Salt of the earth.
Your writing fits right in with the thoughts of your leaders.
I think you have a good argument. It has long mystified me, especially since moving to the south many years ago,how the voters have a disconnect, intellectually, about government, taxes, and how we survive and prosper as a society.
No one wants to pay taxes, somehow the roads get built and repaired, schools operate, city services take place, but not on MY TAX DOLLARS. get the money from Washington or put a toll on the road to get them Yankees passing through. Our politicians have thrived on pushing the message of cut taxes. What they really mean is the will tax the groups they don't care about so they can take care of their friends. Gererally that means rabel rousing the working people and giving tax cuts to their wealthy friends, sound familiar.
Disabled people and children rarely have an advocate, they make less money, surviving is hard enough for them. Besides better off folk don't want to see them, it makes them uncomfortable. Hard to face mentally handicapped or severely physically damaged people up close. Better to stick them in a "home".
Had lunch there yesterday. Nice service, friendly waiter,
food good, a touch pricy,
Hi James Islander,
Suggest you get off JI once in a while. Actually go to NY where I grew up or maybe Italy. Of course if you were raised on fried chicken, grits, and hush puppies I can see why you think this is good food.
This is poorly prepared and served Italian food. Six of us had dinner recently and no one was particularly pleased with their dinner. The Marsala was over fried chicken with some sauce on top, the side pasta was uniformly gummy and in a big ball. The red sauce was uninspired. I had the Orichetto and Rabe and it was excessively garlickly over sauteed and very bitter. The dinner salad however, was quite good. Sevice was slow and fairly inattentive. Altogether not an experience I will repeat.
