In today's news there is a piece on Yahoo that wonders aloud if Bob Barr is going to be a spoiler against the GOP. My take is that I could care less if McCain is sweating bullets. In fact, I hope he is wearing depends to avoid soiling himself. If an independent who is projected to max out at 4% of the vote can influence McCain, then McCain had best get his act together. I am not trying to sling mud. But it is still up to McCain to actually earn my vote rather than assume I will vote for the lesser of two evils. There are more funnies if you click the read more link.
Now here is a story that just screams "Tell me something I don't know!". Essentially it's a black eye to the public education system. Let's think about this for a second. Who should be the best arbiter of what to teach the kids? Yep, Mom and Pop. Or, the local community. But, as usual, the fed has to be involved. Just another demonstration that government subsidized schools are substandard and anti-Constitutional.
And, no Sunday would be complete without some rag disclosing national security secrets with impunity. The first amendment is clear that the press is a free entity. My objection is with the loose-lipped-anti-American-bathwater-sucking-idiots who border on treason by disclosing classified data to the press. Our young service members would be crucified via a General Court Martial for doing this. But if you are a member of the press or a "highly placed" government official, you get over. Bit of a double standard eh?
Finaly, just to remind us that states also infringe on your liberties.... New Wash. law bans hand-held phones while driving. I understand the danger. Just like listening to the radio and singing along, we have to nip these things in the bud. Let's not penalize and hold accountable the people whose behavior actually causes an accident. Instead, let's figure out how to profit from the situation.
