Well as the few friends who come here know my dad died yesterday. He was 78. As much as I have the gift of gab I don't know what I can say right now. I hope he knew I loved him. I did. I just hope I can become half the man he was and I'm going to miss him.

Nice People

Nice to count on good old fashioned racism from Pat Buchanan who said over the weekend there are "too many jews on the Supreme Court". Actually Pat there are too many right-wing activist judges who care only about pushing their agenda instead of ruling on the law on the Supreme Court. That's the problem.

And again getting back to how the right just throws the word Nazi out in describing the President. Of course the latest is Newt Gingrich

Like I said they either don't really understand what Hitler ACTUALLY DID or they don't care what he did. Either way it's disgusting!

Have You Noticed

Has anyone but me noticed that when baseball players test positive for steroids all hell seems to break loose, Selig and Fehr have to testify before Congress and it's so over the top but when football players test positive for steroids (like Brian Cushing did) no one seems to care? I haven't seen Goodell and Smith (Players Rep) go before Congress at all and I'm wondering why is there a double standard?

Good Choice

It's so pathetic for Republicans that they have no dirt to attack Obama's new Supreme Court nominee Kagan they only thing they can do is defend slavery. They can't use the fact that she's never served on the bench without being countered former Supreme Court Justice Reignquilliam Rehnquist cause it's the same thing.

One question I've been hearing is why when Republicans nominate Supreme Court Justice they pick the strictest conservatives out there and when Democrats nominate Justices they don't and to me the answer is simple: Republicans are only worried about ideology and Democrats want the law followed. And all we need to do is take a look at the last few rulings to prove that.

Some Questions

So first to again say congrats to FBI, NYPD and Department of Homeland Security for their quick work on capturing the Times Square Bomber attempt suspect as he was trying to leave the country. But I do have some questions:

Does insane McCain and other Republicans who are questioning if he should be given his miranda rights know the suspect is a United States citizen and has miranda rights? They apparently think he doesn't and I guess don't realize if he is not given his rights any guilty verdict would be thrown out in court.

Here is a question as well: Should someone on the no fly list be allowed to purchase a gun? I think no because they wouldn't be on the list if they weren't suspected terrorist.

One thing I will always love about Obama more then anything is he doesn't take victory laps like the previous administration. If this was Bush you would think he single-handidly captured this guy.

A couple of things

Don't be surprised if there are gaps in my posts over the next few weeks. I have two fathers (my mom divorced when I was young and remarried) one of them (who is on dialysis to begin with) is in the hospital with pneumonia and the other is having surgery for mellenoma (sorry if the spelling is wrong) this week. Obviously my mind is going in about a million different directions at this moment so please bear with me.

I would like to talk about something that has bothered me. I posted last week how I agreed with the law in Arizona that delt with illegal imagration. Robert posted I was a "racist, bastard, and nazi". I agreed that on that issue I was a racist I don't deny that but one word has bothered me and that is nazi. I always hated that word with a passion especially being Jewish myself. I never told anyone this of my friends but my grandparents were holocaust survivors (they died when I was young so I never had a chance to really talk to them about it) and my grandfathers sister was apparently killed in the holocaust. I hate how the right continously compares President Obama to Hitler and the fact is either they really have no idea what was done or they really don't care. The ignorance just amazes me and disgusts me and I really just want to talk to these ignorant idiots and ask if they really know what was done. And if you want to know why I really dispise those who deny the holocaust well that's why and why I consider them anti-semetic that's exactly why. It affected my family directly.

Now on a better note I'd like to say congrats to the FBI for arresting the suspect in the attempted bombing in Times Square at JFK as he was trying to leave the country. Good work.

Will never get it

I want to thank Republicans for proving yet again why de-regulation NEVER works. This case proves that with the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. I find it ironic that the right-wing media is calling this "Obama's Katrina" when a couple of things need to be brought up:

1) How come we hear let businesses police themself except when things like this happen?

2) Obama wasn't off playing golf like the President when Katrina hit

Republicans thanks for being consistantly wrong as always.

Now just so you know besides BP Halliburton is also in part responsible they just finished hours before the explosion a major piece of equipment. But you won't hear that from the Bush friendly media either.
