Around the Web

"...some 'conservative' pundits supporting the repeal of the ban on gays in the military [are]...they're smarter than the Creator...Those of us who believe that God created male and female and that sex outside marriage – adultery, fornication, and homosexuality – is wrong and harmful, are just not being intelligent." -- Smarter than God, commentary by Robert Knight

"Either the government knows how to stop the oil spill or they don't. If they know how to stop it, then why have they let thousands of barrels of oil per day keep gushing out...If they don't know, then what is all this political grandstanding about keeping their boot on the neck of BP..." --
Oil and Snake Oil, commentary by Thomas Sowell

Careful whom you ask about the Obama agenda:
North Carolina Representative Bob Etheridge goes "postal" and sings The Who's "Who Are You" tune

[Add on: "Over one hundred thousand South Carolina voters put a vote in Alvin Greene's column without so much as hearing a peep from the man. That is the cold, hard, disturbing truth of the matter...
Like the idea of a Congressman not actually reading a bill before voting upon it." -- The 'Name Game' in South Carolina by Kay Daly]

I believe the situation regarding the military just goes to show you how close America is as a whole to being turned over to a reprobate mind. This could certainly threaten our national security in the future. If the Lord tarries long enough, I could easily see America losing its sovereignty. I caught wind of some fluffy song which was popular of late that went something like this. "Glory, glory, hallaleujiah, welcome to the future. I could infer that the message was that we have overcome all of these obstacles and have now entered the land of paradise. Hardly. A better would be, "Oh Lord, have mercy on us, welcome to the future."

As for the reporter and the representative, I am not sure of the context and circumstances, but it looks as though this reporter was getting a dose of his own medicine. I believe I heard someone from the sports world once use a word to refer modern day reporters. It was "rats." How appropriate.

Concerning the reporter and the representative, I think it is not as bad as the Republicans are portraying it and worse than the Democrats will admit.

The You Tube video is edited, so one can't know all the context. As far as a reporter, if the claim is true, it was no reporter at all but rather a student. He should have identified himself and the representative should not have grabbed him in the way he did. At least Etheridge has apologized publically and says he would apologize to the person but doesn't know who he was. Not sure anyone should gain any political points out of this, but it was entertaining at least.

I was living in NC when Etheridge was elected. If you watched him and listened to him, you could see he was the kind of person to do this sort of thing. He is a joke of a politician and should have been arrested for this.Not much of a man, I would say.

He is of the same stripe as that scum John Edwards. When he was elected I just knew in my heart he was going to be a classic rip-off. He used his position to run for president and never really represented the people of the state.There was even a tape of him giving a lecture (before he was elected) on how to lie in court. This was made public before the election but he got in anyway. He tried to give the impression he was a "man of the people" but lived in an exclusive gated community where 99% of the electorate wouldn't have been allowed into. well, his course of action with his mistress showed what sort of thing he is, crooked as Clinton.

Yes Mark, isn't it true that what goes around, comes around. I guess it would be a toss up as to which was more important to Mr. Edwards, his ego or his hair. Frankly, the world of politics has now become only about making a name for yourself, whether Democrat or Republican.

As for the gated communities, this is somewhat of an intriguing setup. I have often wondered, do the people who live in these believe they are better than the rest of the world and that they are entitled to have a guard to decide if anyone can go inside their domain. I really do not feel it has anything to do with security, but the fact that they are simply making a statement by choosing to live this way.
