Our Sad State of Affairs

Right now the United States Government is torturing people, spying on its citizens, and detaining people indefinitely without pressing charges or allowing representation by an attorney. Right now the President of the United States is contending that Congress has no oversite powers over the Executive branch. Recently, evidence has been revealed that indicating that the president's top aides, and maybe the president himself, plotted to press phony criminal charges against the opposition party.

Does this sound like an advanced, modern democracy to you?

The country is fat and happy, most people know little of it's history and care little about the politics.

March Madness, and what well know person is shaving their head is more important.

We get what we want in life.

Did anyone notice in the paper that an Italian-born Englishman, by the name of Richard Rogers won the 2007 Pritzker Architecture award ($100,000.00). It's given by the family that owns the Hyatt hotel chain here in the U.S.

Oh! Steve, He is also a LIBERAL member of Britian's House of Lords.
