    Senator Rick Santorum went on the Sean Hannity program in the Summer of his last year in office and told this story. He mentioned that he saw the evidence that these weapons had been found in committee and was baffled as to why the Bush administration would not release it to the public. Not long after, he lost the election. Some say the administration sabotaged the election for him, but by then Bush was so unpopular in Pennsylvania and Santorum was such a strong supporter of him that he was fighting an uphill battle.

    Beckel may be a nut, but he’s right about the Vikings and Columbus. There is also good evidence that Polynesian and Chinese traders made the journey for hundreds if not thousands of years prior. Recent evidence even suggests Marco Polo may have made the journey while on his travels to China, although the evidence has not yet been determined as conclusive.

    As a suicide survivor, I can tell you that barely a day goes by that I don’t regret making that choice. Was I thinking straight? Hell no. But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t consciously decide to take those pills and wash them down with a mug of mostly whiskey and coke. I thank God that I wasn’t successful and that I passed out before I took enough to kill me or otherwise cause permanent harm. Depression is a terrible disease, that is exacerbated by mistreatment of certain drugs and alcohol, but suicide really is a choice that I hope none of you ever are in a position to have to consciously make.

    With a caveat of “unless there is evidence of fire” I have seen some drivers get burned over the years and that id horrific to watch.

    Sadly, the policies of the United States government IS the reason cited by many terrorist organizations as to why they target us. That said, reasons are not excuses and while terrorists may attack us for sticking our collective nose in what they feel is their business, that does not excuse their actions. Terrorism is wrong. Attacking civilians for the actions of their government is wrong. but the answer to the question, while perhaps lacking in tact, is essentially, correct.

    Union rank & file members are not usually or even often the perpetrators of such extreme actions. Talk to most union guys and they’ll tell you all about the thug who stands in the corner when they conduct their meetings. Unions were long ago infiltrated by communists and the mob and the 2 learned from each other and joined forces. Now, the once benevolent organizations are the power hungry bullies they once fought against. People talk about corporate greed as if it’s the big businessmen of the early 20th century. Well Big Labor is the other side of that power coin. They are part and parcel of the big business movement of the new millennium. It’s a game of power. The tactics have changed little, but the players have evolved.

    In the end the only ‘side” worth having is your loved ones. I truly believe our society will break down before all this is over. That doesn’t mean I won’t support people I think are more likely to move us away from this brink. I just don’t have any confidence that they will succeed. Not one of them.

    I believe the money should be split among the soldiers who went in after him at great risk to their lives.

    Political parties should be abolished or at the very least mad inconsequential by taking the money out of running for political office. No political party can withstand the corrupting influence of large amounts of money. I trust individuals, not parties. If there were a Democrat, who did all the right things and was truly the best person for the job, I would vote for him. It’s HIS platform that matters to me, not the party he supposedly represents.
