Senator Kerry with “Fighting Dem” Patrick Murphy in Newtown, PA

Last Thursday I took the morning off from work to attend Senator Kerry’s rally with PA-08 Democratic Congressional candidate and Iraq war veteran Patrick Murphy, along with a few hundred other lucky and very excited people. It was a cold windy morning outside on the Student Center Terrace of Bucks County Community College in Newtown, PA but it sure didn’t cool off the crowd’s spirits! Continue reading

Bill Clinton Rips Fox News Sunday Hack Chris Wallace a New One

If you didn’t see Bill Clinton on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace this morning, definitely watch this clip, courtesy of Crooks and Liars. Clinton reacted exactly the way every Democratic politician must finally start to respond and not just to full blown right-wing hacks but all of their MSM parrots and apologists as well.

You have to call them on their BS, every time and especially face to face. It would be nice if the rest of the Democrats and liberals would finally get this too. Don’t give them a pass. Refute them point by point and also hit them on their outrageous bias and BS. Continue reading

Bush Reading Program Gets Failing Grade

Surprise, surprise. I’m shocked. SHOCKED I SAY!

Yet another goverment program finally comes to light that the Bush administration and GOP have totally politicized and used as nothing more than as means to enrich themselves by using their currently unbridled power to steal money from our country, directing our tax dollars to their crony backers. They always get big kickbacks of course. Though the GOP refers to them as donations by supporters to their party and candidates.

A scorching internal review of the Bush administration’s billion-dollar-a-year reading program says the Education Department ignored the law and ethical standards to steer money how it wanted.

The government audit is unsparing in its view that the Reading First program has been beset by conflicts of interest and willful mismanagement. It suggests the department broke the law by trying to dictate which curriculum schools must use.

It also depicts a program in which review panels were stacked with people who shared the director’s views, and in which only favored publishers of reading curricula could get money.

A Unique Way to Support Our Troops

The other day my ex-wife sent me an email reminding me about this great way to really support our men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Operation Hero Miles was created by Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger in cooperation with close to a dozen United States Airlines in October, 2003. The program allows troops stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan to fly home on leave for free. It also gives family members of wounded servicemen and women free plane tickets to visit their loved ones recovering at military hospitals across the country. Operation Hero Miles gives ordinary citizens an opportunity to help our troops in a very direct way that makes a real difference in their lives.
