"Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi can stop clucking now. For the last three years, Democratic leaders cheered GOP ethics woes. Dean accused Republicans of making 'their culture of corruption the norm.' Pelosi touted cleanliness as a liberal virtue. But with the eye-popping pay-for-play and bribery case against Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich topping a year of nationwide Democratic scandals, the corruption chickens are coming home to roost." --columnist Michelle Malkin

"[T]here are enough connections between the worlds of [Rod] Blagojevich and [Barack] Obama that the whole thing has the potential to grow beyond a colorful Chicago tale of corruption to entangle members of the Presidential transition team [and] to test Obama's carefully cultivated reformist image." --Massimo Calabresi

"So, do the rest of you now have some idea of the depth of corruption in Chicago and Illinois, and why some of us were so concerned about electing a president who emerges from this cesspool?" --columnist Dennis Byrne

"'And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.' That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."
The Apollo 8 Christmas Eve Broadcast

Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the Moon, entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1968. That evening, the astronauts; Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders did a live television broadcast from lunar orbit, in which they showed pictures of the Earth and Moon seen from Apollo 8. Lovell said, "The vast loneliness is awe-inspiring and it makes you realize just what you have back there on Earth." They ended the broadcast with the crew taking turns reading from the book of Genesis.

"And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas, and God bless all of you - all of you on the good Earth."
"'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment."

From Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
And don't those right wing rantings sound so much like another loveable and (intentionally) hysterically funny housewife?





"What I'm trying to say here is that in spite of everything...
I am an AMERICAN. I am ME. I believe in ME. I believe in MY FUTURE and I believe in the United States of America.

It will in part be like what is now going on with the legislation to stop credit card companies from their usurious practices. Once they've been muzzled they vow to raise the interest rates and other costs on EVERYONE, since now they won't be able to prey on people they issue cards to who have no assets to cover purchases or pay off balances.

Way random but somehow rising in my mind is a line from a poem by Miguel Algarin I was just reading.... "there is something capitalistic about a mosquito."

OK. Look. I don't really want to seem like I'm too un-empathetic with the aims of the current spate of free market interventions by the U.S. Government. Here is a way that even under the current stifling gov regulation, a true free American Citizen can still build a Motor Vehicle!!!

There are plenty of atheists in foxholes. Plenty. Many who do not see evidence of a personal god have risked their lives to save others and have given their lives in the cause of justice. To say otherwise is ridiculous.

Many conservatives are atheists as well, Darla. This is not a left right issue. It's an issue of science versus superstition.
