Thom talks about this a lot --
Mother's Day was first started as a reaction to the carnage of the Civil War, with mother's losing their sons in senseless battles.

ran that we-The Federal Government- should end bailing out business and overseas aid to counties. So do you feel we should continue bailing out companies and giving money to other counties too and he also wanted to end funding then the USSR military programs.

Thom interviewed Chris Mooney, author of The Republican Brain, recently -- great interview. I bought the book at the airport flying two days ago from Portland, Oregon and read it avidly on the plane here to Honolulu. Really a heck of an informative book about the differences between republicans and dems. Survey data, studies, physiological research, etc. Great insights!
If Obama's Health plan fails. Who do we blame? Obama? Bush?
I feel some do and most don’t have the courage. Case in point. Rep. Ryan introducing his blueprint as to how the Government should be like. That’s courage. Our Gov. Pat Quinn and Senator Dick Durbin they wait until their President says he is for Same sex marriage and then they say later they are for it. Strange isn’t it. Here in Illinois, our Governor and one Senator need a back bone.
Governor Moonbeam caving in to reality? This is getting interesting.

Last weekend I took a scenic drive to Moscow's Renaissance Fair, stopping in the beautiful little city of Coeur d' Alene on the northern shore of Coeur d' Alene to fill my gastank with BP product. Then I drove south through the reservation of the Coeur d' Alene Tribe over Fighting Creek, past billboards telling people how to get help with diabetes, and past the highway to Worley and the casino that gets back a lot of white folks money.
Fundamentalist Evangelicals OBVIOUSLY know what's best for the rest of us, aren't the least bit hesitant about stating that ENDLESSLY to anyone who'll listen. As most of us are already apparently aware.
Yet those same Evangelicals have what we (the tolerant sectarians) recognize to be twisted values, they'll quote Jesus and the New testament ONLY to the extent that it aligns with their NEW IMPROVED value system, a system that's morphed well outside of the new testament framework.
