Thomas Jefferson – The Indispensable Man

Thomas Jefferson Vs. Alexander Hamilton?

Re: The Debate on 2/22/05


What will it take to get this complacent generation to demand political accountability? Since the 2000 election we have seen our political leaders participate in extremely unethical manners with impunity including election fraud, gerrymandering, bribery, theft, perjury, torture, indefinate detention, warrantless wiretapping, treason, fraud, extortion, assasination, genocide and more.

Guns For Protection Against The Government

I heard Thom stating on one of his shows that the argument that citizens need guns to protect themselves against a corrupt government is laughable. Thom claims that when pitted against the modern weaponry of the U.S. military, U.S. citizens rising up in armed rebellion wouldn't stand a chance.

TELL IT TO THE AFGHAN TALIBAN, who have defeated the once mighty Soviet military, and are handily holding their own against the mighty military of the United States.

Bigotry through Suggestion

A Bigot is; one who regards or treats the members of a group with hatred and intolerance, as defined by Merriam Webster.

Armed Guards in Our Schools is not a solution.

You don’t solve a problem with too many guns by adding guns just like you don’t solve problems with the Health Insurance Industry by giving the health insurance industry more resources and a greater role in our society.

What Christmas means to me:

Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.

Here is a great ideal for the problems with guns

Why not enforce those on the books right now! Their must be hundreds. Why add a other one. Didnt Obama's administration had the chance to pass the assalt weapons bill before? I heard they had the votes but they didnt. A real profiles in courage on those liberals. What did they pass instead-with all voting for it-health care. They could have passed so much in those two years its sad that they didnt do anything else. And the others they didnt pass Obama signed in under executive order

Right to work, right to be fired.....for attractiveness

In the last few days there has been a story in the news about a man who fired his assistant because she was too attractive. The

more you learn about this you realize that this man appears guilty of sexual harrassment, yet, he is the one who wins in court.

Many are amazed at how the courts could support this man who appears to be more guilty of wrondoings than the person whom he fired.

What is not being talked about regarding this story is the state this is happening in, Iowa, is a right to work state. This man can fire


In my state, Oregon, we may donate old cellphones to our Human Services agencies.

I believe they are scrubbed and donated to, for instance, rape victims or single moms.

I also believe that any bare cellphone with no subscription will dial 911. So these phones would only be used for extreme emergencies.

BTW, fraudulent use of 911 carries severe penalties.

On Christmas Eve, is it okay to ask Would Jesus Approve?

Listening to the news one day, hearing about NATO preparing another plan -- this time to deal with SYRIA -- it occurred to me this was SO MUCH LIKE the Crusades.

Then I realized that my conclusion was one of those full thought conclusions, if you know what I mean. A thought that was a result of a lifetime of factoids but no distinct memory that could be quantified in a list of arguments because it was so long since I'd arrived at my opinion about the wrongness and cultural embarrassment about the Crusades .
