Baron to Hold Town Hall...Sort of

Baron Hill will hold a town hall style meeting before returning to his hometown of Washington D.C. The meeting will be held at I.U.S. on August 31 from 6:30 to 7:30. The email announcing the news was circulated among the democrat faithful and big donors. You see, there is limited space available and one must reserve a seat. Sounds more like a political rally than a town hall meeting. I wonder if they will pass the plate for donations? The email never mentions what will be discussed, but one has to figure health care will be the main focus. I have never heard of a town hall lasting only an hour either. I expect the hall to be filled with libs encouraging our fence riding congressman to heap more taxes on our children and grandchildren and for the conservatives to be out on the sidewalk carrying signs and protesting. Ah, life in the 9th district.

If You Can't Win the Game, Change the Rules

Senator Kennedy has passed. He was a powerful man. He came from an era and from a family of politicians that made things happen. So it is no surprise that back in 2004 when his partner in crime, er I mean in the senate, John Kerry was a contender for the presidency, he pushed for a change in Massachusetts' law. The previous law stated that the governor was the one that appointed a replacement if a senator, such as Kerry becoming president, could not serve out their term. Problem was that the governor of that liberal cess pool was a Republican, Mitt Romney. The liberals, led by Teddy, knew that ole Mitt would put an evil conservative in Kerry's old seat should he take up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. So, the law was changed by the state legislature. Now a replacement would be decided by a special election that would take five months to complete. Kerry lost and the point was moot...until last week. Ted Kennedy, apparently knowing his end was near, lobbied to have the law changed back. You see, the governor now is a Democrat. Now, with liberals poll numbers falling like the Red Sox playing the Yankees, they don't like the rules. Now they want to change it back. The present governor has even said he would sign the bill as soon as it gets to his desk. Heaven forbid the citizens of that state have a voice in their next senator. But hey, if you can't win with your own rules...just change them till you can.

Defining Problem in American Politics:

James Carville, speaking on CNN's 'State of the Union,' about Dem strategy against Republicans: 'Put a bill out there, make them filibuster it, make them be what they are, the party of no. ... Let them kill it. Let them kill it with the interest group money, then run against them. That's what we ought to do.'

It is precisely because of this kind of advice from full-time professional political hacks that pols aren't thinking about the next generation. Hell, they're not even thinking about the next decade. All they can think about is the next election.

Just remember that when we're all wondering what happened to this once great country. Where have all the Statesmen gone?

Now, I have seen it all... In 140 characters or less.

On road + just rec'd email entitled ''Is Obama the Antichrist?''

I didn't vote for the guy, but for the love of Ohio, the antichrist?


I am old enough to remember a time when you could agree to disagree on policy without personalities.


B/t polar opposite Left/Right lays vast ''silent majority'' of hard working America. U know, ones who don't get bail out, or tax breaks, or call POTUS the antichrist.
