Scratching My Head

I started this blog because my political viewpoints annoyed so many readers that my subscribers began leaving. As someone who buried her head in the sand for years and preferred to believe that life is all sunshine and flowers, I can hardly condemn them. It's so much easier to pretend that all the bad things that are happening, aren't. Unless we take an opportunity to voice our discontent through venues such as blogging and tea parties, then we may as well all be blind, deaf and dumb.

What makes me scratch my head though is trying to figure out why so many people feel the need to be so defensive of a President who doesn't defend us. What kind of leader visits other nations and talks about us behind our backs, and without provocation? I certainly don't approve of much that he's done, but for better or worse, his term is sort of like a marriage. We're stuck with him until we're granted a divorce or his term is up. I don't dislike the man as much as I detest his arrogance and ignorance. His belief that the government needs to be involved in every aspect of life might be interesting if he could back up the theory with success stories.

I'm not so sure I want government-controlled healthcare after seeing the mess made of medicare/welfare, and the bailouts. There is too much corruption and fraud in the system, and if we don't clean house, it's like growing mold spores. Government cannot even run itself without scandal, disappointment, and disgruntled voters, so why would we believe involving elected officials to make ANY decisions is a good idea? Do you want someone like Nancy Pelosi deciding when you can go to the doctor, or how bad your pain needs to be before you can go? Then she'd probably lie and say she never even talked to you. *lol* I'm fairly certain that the best care would go to the relatives of the elected officials...John Murtha would probably find a way to get a health care building named after him to follow up his money funneling airport ventures. I'd be so interested to know why so many people welcome government intervention in our health concerns. What am I missing? If you watch network news or read the local newspapers, you're never going to get the whole story.

Differences of opinions are what makes the world go around, but I'm saddened that there are so many who would rather NOT have a political discussion for fear of facing an opposing stance. If we don't talk about things, how can we gain perspective and make the world a better place?

Just asking.

Sharing - American Suicide

Wherever you stand, please take the time to read this; it ought to scare the pants off you!

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia,"explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as hedescribed eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'"

"Here is how they do it," Lamm said: "First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country." History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: "The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy." Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.".

Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, "Invent multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, "We could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: "The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only
tolerance and pluralism to hold us together."

Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans,emphasizing their similarities."

"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."

"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."

"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common Language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. "E. Pluribus Unum" --From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."

"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said,. "Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book "Mexifornia." His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America. deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American
jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America - take note of California and other states - to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength."

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the
conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path especially The American Dream.

If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did. America as we have known it will be gone if you don't.

Where's the Accountability?

This definitely isn't Nancy Pelosi's best photo, but this isn't her finest hour. When, I ask, do our elected officials become accountable for their actions and have to face consequences? How can vicious lies and the defamation of another U.S. agency be swept under the carpet when they've been made by a person who is third in line to be the President of this country? Is this the leadership we want or NEED?

It seems ludicrous to me that President Obama is advising Israel about how to achieve peace with the Palestinians when our government is at war with itself. For whatever reason, he considers himself the diplomatic "God" who is going to end the eternal war in the middle east simply by sitting down and speaking rationally with irrational leaders such as Ahmadinajad.

It's my personal belief that you lead by example, and our congress and those newly appointed by President Obama are certainly not setting a very high bar. We have a verified plagiarist as Vice President, a tax cheat in charge of the IRS, An ill-informed and totally unprepared head of Homeland Security, and now a Speaker of the House who has shown her true colors and is doing nothing to further bi-partisan relationships.

Maybe the time has come to have a good long look at the political system in this country. Our politicians have become career-oriented rather than elected officials who are in Washington to watch out for our best interests. Do we really need John Murtha spending more of our tax dollars to repave the runway for his namesake airport? Do we in Tennessee really want to bail out California so that the elected officials there can continue to fritter away the budget dollars and have nothing change? All of a sudden, legalizing and taxing Marijuana seems quite moral if it puts money into the hands of greedy government officials.

Ask yourself where all the money raised by high property taxes, the millions of automobile registration fees, and the exorbitant fees tacked on to gasoline and other fuels have gone. Just one look at the gridlocked freeways there and a quick compute of one of the US's highest registration fees per auto should raise a big question mark.

It seems we are not paying attention to issues at hand that are jeopardizing us and our children. We keep sending the same crooks back to Washington. We have Jihad Terror Training Camps in our own backyards...the very people who behead and mutilate human beings, yet we are stuck on how inhumane it is to use waterboarding on these very people. How many lives have been saved for its use? Do we really care about the rights of terrorists and murderers? Are we going to stand back and allow the inmates of Gitmo to file law suits protesting their treatment? I think the world has gone crazy...and even more so since the January inaguration.

It was so assuring to see President Obama give his commencement speech to the graduating class at Notre Dame, and to listen to the encouragement Mrs. Obama spouted to those at UC Merced...but again, I have to ask...with millions unemployed, where will these new grads find work? I believe our President needs to look in his own back yard and get in touch with middle class America to really realize how dire the situation for the majority. How many people are about to run out of unemployment benefits, and what will they do then? When times get tough, people snap. The anger is festering, and too many innocent people are going to be caught in the middle. Here's a question I've wanted to ask...when we elect someone like Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker of the House, why can't she move to Washington for her term rather than utilize tax paying dollars for her expensive JET commute? It's little things like this that should be considered, but I guess studying pig smells is much more important for some politician who has the pork industry in his back pocket.

Rant over for now, but boy that felt good!

Time to Take a Stand

As so many value the authentications done by Snopes, I have verified the validity of this article.

Hooray for a Michigan State Professor
At Michigan State University, a mechanical engineering professor named Indrek Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association.

The e-mail was in response to the students' protest of the Danish cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.

The group had complained the cartoons were "hate speech."

Enter Professor Wichman.

In his e-mail, he said the following:

Dear Moslem Association,

As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest. I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt , the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called "whores" in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland , and the rioting and looting in Paris, France . This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues.

I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal,and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile "protests." If you do not like the values of the West - see the 1st Amendment - you are free to leave. I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option. Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.


I. S. Wichman Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Of course, as to be expected, the group is demanding that Professor Wichman be reprimanded and that the university impose diversity training for faculty. This whole thing made me laugh, as I worked for a university of over two decades and the composition of the faculty was about as diverse as one could get. Most issues between faculty and students originated because of existing 'habits.' Some cultures are 'touchy feely' while others detest being touched in any way. Diversity training simply exposes individuals the differences, which they already know...it doesn't change who they are.

Now the local chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray. CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, apparently doesn't believe that the good professor had the right to express his opinion. When does it end? For one, I'm tired of individuals coming to our country and trying to change our constitutional rights to fit their countries. Why not stay home and learn if we are such an affront to your sensibilities? Take a good look America, at how many of your tax dollars go to support International students. You'll be shocked...and probably appalled that we are teaching some who are potential enemies to kill us.

For its part, the university is standing its ground in support of Professor Wichman, saying the e-mail was private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks. Trust me, it's not because they have balls enough to really take a stand. It could hurt their funding. This political correctness crap is getting old and killing us.

It's okay for 'less moderate' muslims to behead, stone, and mutilate, but we can't stand up and say we dislike it. I guess that makes us that "dismissive, derisive, and arrogant," America that President Obama apologized for. Time to wake up...this is a 'growing' map of the Jihad Training Camps in our country:

Frivilous Law Suits

When I'm not watching Fox News and catching up on the ridiculous antics on capital hill, I peruse Reader's Digest. Where else can you improve your vocabulary, read quotes from famous people, scan an array of jokes, or read such interesting articles. I have to admit, it's a favorite publication of mine...always handy right next to the toilet for all to enjoy.

With the economy in the dumper, it stands to reason that more and more people are going to seek money wherever they can find it. Suing one another is a favorite pastime. We already have more than our share of ambulance-chasing attorneys who advertise on TV and feed on the greed of the common man. I was amazed at the statistics in RD, and this is probably just the beginning.

According to the May issue, Suing people has cost American citizens and corporations $247 billion in 2006. Cases cited bordered on ridiculous, with some so unbelievable, I can't fathom they saw the light of day: A retired Navy Reserve captain threatening suit if people didn't address her by her military title; a father suing a little league coach over a losing season; a prisoner who attempted escape and injured himself suing the system because they made it too easy for him to escape. How about a person dumb enough not to read a package, suing a cosmetic company because SHE dyed her hair the wrong color? A few years ago, someone filed a $67 million lawsuit against a dry cleaner for losing a pair of pants. Those must have been some trousers.

Luckily, none of these suits ended in a judgement for the complaining party, and that's good news. It's ridiculous monetary awards that open the door to idiots. I'm wondering how many people suffering from Mesolthelioma have contacted an attorney, as advised by one law firm's TV ad, or how many have sought retribution from the misleading ads about risky pharmaceuticals? Sure, attorneys are going to fabricate or stretch the truth in order to get a piece of the pie.

There is a time and place for filing a law suit. I had a perfect opportunity at one stage in my life and I didn't do it, because I have a conscience. Of course, there have been many times in the recent months, I questioned my judgement. But, I can look at myself in the mirror and know I was a better person than the one who caused my pain and suffering. I didn't need money to buy that conclusion for me. I'll never be rich, but I have pride.

Where will the stupidity in this country end...or will it. With the upcoming Generation Y children who've grown up believing the world owes them a living, I doubt we've even glimpsed absurdity. Lord help us.

I agree - This is a "Must Read."

While perusing the National Review Institute site, which was mentioned on Michelle Malkin's blog, I came across a letter to Attorney General, Eric Holder from Andrew C. McCarthy. I guess I am nosy, as my grandmother used to tell me, because I love glimpsing mail belonging to some else, especially a post that gets the point across with such style. *smile*.

May 1, 2009

By email (to the Counterterrorism Division) and by regular mail:

The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr.
Attorney General of the United States
United States Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20530-0001

Dear Attorney General Holder:

This letter is respectfully submitted to inform you that I must decline the invitation to participate in the May 4 roundtable meeting the President’s Task Force on Detention Policy is convening with current and former prosecutors involved in international terrorism cases. An invitation was extended to me by trial lawyers from the Counterterrorism Section, who are members of the Task Force, which you are leading.

The invitation email (of April 14) indicates that the meeting is part of an ongoing effort to identify lawful policies on the detention and disposition of alien enemy combatants—or what the Department now calls “individuals captured or apprehended in connection with armed conflicts and counterterrorism operations.” I admire the lawyers of the Counterterrorism Division, and I do not question their good faith. Nevertheless, it is quite clear—most recently, from your provocative remarks on Wednesday in Germany—that the Obama administration has already settled on a policy of releasing trained jihadists (including releasing some of them into the United States). Whatever the good intentions of the organizers, the meeting will obviously be used by the administration to claim that its policy was arrived at in consultation with current and former government officials experienced in terrorism cases and national security issues. I deeply disagree with this policy, which I believe is a violation of federal law and a betrayal of the president’s first obligation to protect the American people. Under the circumstances, I think the better course is to register my dissent, rather than be used as a prop.

Moreover, in light of public statements by both you and the President, it is dismayingly clear that, under your leadership, the Justice Department takes the position that a lawyer who in good faith offers legal advice to government policy makers—like the government lawyers who offered good faith advice on interrogation policy—may be subject to investigation and prosecution for the content of that advice, in addition to empty but professionally damaging accusations of ethical misconduct. Given that stance, any prudent lawyer would have to hesitate before offering advice to the government.

Beyond that, as elucidated in my writing (including my proposal for a new national security court, which I understand the Task Force has perused), I believe alien enemy combatants should be detained at Guantanamo Bay (or a facility like it) until the conclusion of hostilities. This national defense measure is deeply rooted in the venerable laws of war and was reaffirmed by the Supreme Court in the 2004 Hamdi case. Yet, as recently as Wednesday, you asserted that, in your considered judgment, such notions violate America’s “commitment to the rule of law.” Indeed, you elaborated, “Nothing symbolizes our [adminstration’s] new course more than our decision to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay…. President Obama believes, and I strongly agree, that Guantanamo has come to represent a time and an approach that we want to put behind us: a disregard for our centuries-long respect for the rule of law[.]” (Emphasis added.)

Given your policy of conducting ruinous criminal and ethics investigations of lawyers over the advice they offer the government, and your specific position that the wartime detention I would endorse is tantamount to a violation of law, it makes little sense for me to attend the Task Force meeting. After all, my choice would be to remain silent or risk jeopardizing myself.
For what it may be worth, I will say this much. For eight years, we have had a robust debate in the United States about how to handle alien terrorists captured during a defensive war authorized by Congress after nearly 3000 of our fellow Americans were annihilated. Essentially, there have been two camps. One calls for prosecution in the civilian criminal justice system, the strategy used throughout the 1990s. The other calls for a military justice approach of combatant detention and war-crimes prosecutions by military commission. Because each theory has its downsides, many commentators, myself included, have proposed a third way: a hybrid system, designed for the realities of modern international terrorism—a new system that would address the needs to protect our classified defense secrets and to assure Americans, as well as our allies, that we are detaining the right people.

There are differences in these various proposals. But their proponents, and adherents to both the military and civilian justice approaches, have all agreed on at least one thing: Foreign terrorists trained to execute mass-murder attacks cannot simply be released while the war ensues and Americans are still being targeted. We have already released too many jihadists who, as night follows day, have resumed plotting to kill Americans. Indeed, according to recent reports, a released Guantanamo detainee is now leading Taliban combat operations in Afghanistan, where President Obama has just sent additional American forces.
The Obama campaign smeared Guantanamo Bay as a human rights blight. Consistent with that hyperbolic rhetoric, the President began his administration by promising to close the detention camp within a year. The President did this even though he and you (a) agree Gitmo is a top-flight prison facility, (b) acknowledge that our nation is still at war, and (c) concede that many Gitmo detainees are extremely dangerous terrorists who cannot be tried under civilian court rules. Patently, the commitment to close Guantanamo Bay within a year was made without a plan for what to do with these detainees who cannot be tried. Consequently, the Detention Policy Task Force is not an effort to arrive at the best policy. It is an effort to justify a bad policy that has already been adopted: to wit, the Obama administration policy to release trained terrorists outright if that’s what it takes to close Gitmo by January.

Obviously, I am powerless to stop the administration from releasing top al Qaeda operatives who planned mass-murder attacks against American cities—like Binyam Mohammed (the accomplice of “Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla) whom the administration recently transferred to Britain, where he is now at liberty and living on public assistance. I am similarly powerless to stop the administration from admitting into the United States such alien jihadists as the 17 remaining Uighur detainees. According to National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair, the Uighurs will apparently live freely, on American taxpayer assistance, despite the facts that they are affiliated with a terrorist organization and have received terrorist paramilitary training. Under federal immigration law (the 2005 REAL ID Act), those facts render them excludable from the United States. The Uighurs’ impending release is thus a remarkable development given the Obama administration’s propensity to deride its predecessor’s purported insensitivity to the rule of law.

I am, in addition, powerless to stop the President, as he takes these reckless steps, from touting his Detention Policy Task Force as a demonstration of his national security seriousness. But I can decline to participate in the charade.

Finally, let me repeat that I respect and admire the dedication of Justice Department lawyers, whom I have tirelessly defended since I retired in 2003 as a chief assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York. It was a unique honor to serve for nearly twenty years as a federal prosecutor, under administrations of both parties. It was as proud a day as I have ever had when the trial team I led was awarded the Attorney General’s Exceptional Service Award in 1996, after we secured the convictions of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and his underlings for waging a terrorist war against the United States. I particularly appreciated receiving the award from Attorney General Reno—as I recounted in Willful Blindness, my book about the case, without her steadfastness against opposition from short-sighted government officials who wanted to release him, the “blind sheikh” would never have been indicted, much less convicted and so deservedly sentenced to life-imprisonment. In any event, I’ve always believed defending our nation is a duty of citizenship, not ideology. Thus, my conservative political views aside, I’ve made myself available to liberal and conservative groups, to Democrats and Republicans, who’ve thought tapping my experience would be beneficial. It pains me to decline your invitation, but the attendant circumstances leave no other option.

Very truly yours,


Andrew C. McCarthy

Open Mouth - Insert Foot

Actually, the concept of putting your foot into your mouth ceases to be cute unless you're a baby. I haven't really followed politics until lately, but I'm appalled at the obvious lack of respect for the American public displayed by the current administration.

I'm understanding more clearly why Joe Biden has plagiarized the speeches of so many others. He can't seem to avoid embarrassing himself or the White House if he delivers something on his own accord. His latest announcement concerning Swine Flu was certainly an opinion he is entitled to, but when you share it on national television, there's no doubt anyone who provides options for public travel will not take kindly to someone encouraging folks not to utilize their services.

President Obama has laid a few eggs of his own, the most notable for me being his apology for the derisive and dismissive of Americans toward those abroad. I would prefer not to have someone assume how I feel and lump me into categories where I don't belong. Of course, his recent comments about those of us who attended Tea Parties failed to register any points either. It would have been much nicer for him to praise the frustrated lot of Americans who gathered peacefully and voiced opinions we wanted him to hear instead of "Those critics," he said, were "just waving tea bags around."

"Chit runs downhill," and it seems to be true since the President's opinion prompted Nancy Pelosi to express her own disregard for a large portion of the voting class:

Anti-Tax Tea Parties are not a grassroots movement, rather an "astroturf" movement funded by the wealthiest Americans in protest of having to pay more taxes. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the democrats were all about grassroots movements? I guess they only care if its their own herb they're growing.

Her latest denials are almost humorous if they weren't so insulting to the public's intelligence. She didn't know anything about the Harman wire-tap."She knew. We made sure she knew," said one of the former officials, chuckling.

This was recently posted to address her claim of 'no knowledge' about interrogation techniques which included water boarding:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) attended secret CIA briefings on interrogation procedures that clearly laid out the details of waterboarding and other "harsh" CIA interrogation techniques in 2002.
Pelosi and other Democratic Party members on the committee had full knowledge of waterboarding technique and queried CIA as to whether waterboarding was harsh enough to extract information. The Speaker and other attending Democratic Party committee members voiced their approval, and encouraged the CIA to go forward with their program that included water boarding according to a Washington Post article dated December 9, 2007. There are multiple accounts of Pelosi's involvement and approval of "harsh" waterboarding techniques used on terror suspects planning and fighting against the US civilian population.

What a nice tribute to the Speaker of the House position. If you're speaking, you must be lying? Has there ever been an administration filled with so many folks with questionable backgrounds?

We need term limits. Seats in congress have become a career rather than an elected office. It's time to get out the swiffer and sweep out the people who have lost interest in anything except their special needs and interests. Honestly, does the John Murtha airport need so much money funneled from John Murtha simply because it carries his name? An estimated 20 people a day utilize the three flights to the same destination, yet millions were allocated to update radar and runways. Please...

Why did I pick this time in my life to pay attention to politics. Someone shoot me!!
WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
