I tried to retire. As the country faces the budget battle the rhetoric increases and misinformation abounds------"that statement was never intended to be factually true" is the name of the game being played by both sides and the losers are you and me.

8 Bush Years, 8 Obama Months They are ancient cultures, numerous belief systems, put a lot of value on “face” and feel America is a bully and have no respect for their culture. If we are to gain anything in Afghanistan, it will be by “winning over” the local's one village at a time. The Obama Administration knows this, as does Gen. McCrystal.

Ignorance has Always Been Manipulated by Special Interests These are the same people that are quick to show up at rallies, and the same that burned people up in Salem. It reminds me of the slogan of the United Negro College Fund, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” and we seem to have an ample supply of minds to waste.

May we all celebrate Dr. Kings day and January 20th a day in history There is no doubt that history is about to be made and what part in it to we wish to play.

I have voted against "conspiracy thinking" but Mr. M may be right and I may be wrong After watching Rachel Maddow report on the bank bailout and Amy Goodman's interview of Mark Miller about the recent crash and death of Mike Connell I am finding it harder to refute all the conspiracy theories.
