Muslim Voters' Waning Support for Obama?

ABC News: Muslim Voters' Waning Support for Obama?

This can be understood if you follow politics. In this youtube world, can you imagine the new Obama is a Muslim crap that would be on the web? I mean 30% or so of the electorate still think he is a Muslim now and that would just reinforce the lie. It is sad that it has come to this but that is the nature of the beast.

Is McCain Like Bush?

Is McCain Like Bush? It Depends on the Issue - NYTimes.com

McCain tries to distance himself from GW, but it just does not hold water. If you watch closely, he , McCain, tries to divert the attention away from Bush as often as possible. His stands will NOT hold up to scurtiny.

Professor's Classroom

Damn Monday already? Where did the joy and pleasure of the weekend go? Let us not speak of that again, but instead, move on to the quiz of the week.

In 1912, the Congress was afraid that the workers in the Federal government would try to join a union for better hours, pay, benefits and such and they were afraid that if the employed the strike then the government would have to shut down. The Congress enacted this legislation to prevent this from happening.

This should keep the class busy for awhile and I can get some sleep. You may begin!

The 21st Century G.I. Bill and short-sighted 'deficit hawks'

This type of info should be made available immediately. The people should have the final say on whether the GI Bill is passed or not. It is their money and it should be spent where they want to be.

Political Quote Of The Week

Thomas Paine was the forgotten founding father and was very preceptive.

Supreme Court: Habeas corpus is terror detainees' right -- Newsday.com

This is a good thing? Well, if you believe in the position that one is innocent until proven guilty, then yes. But the detaining of ANYONE without no rights is just wrong and could be the old USSR---Siberia comes to mind.

Obama has a slight edge on McCain, but it is early and these early polls are about as reliable as a rattlesnake in heat. I mean Carter was up on Ford by 33 points and then barely eeked out the win. Eough said!

The Young And Labor Unions

Young people need new lessons about labor unions -- themorningcall.com

Thgere needs to be more emphasis on the education of the young on the need for labor unions. They learn about the necessity of a pledge of allegiance, but know little about the contributions of unions to American life.

Political Quote Of The Week

This week I found a quote by Ambrose Bierce and is an excellent definition of politics.

Politics: A strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles. The conduct of public affairs for private advantage.
Ambrose Bierce

Just watch politics unfold and you will see that this quote is by far the most accurate observation on what politics is really all about.

End Of The Season

Clinton won Puerto Rico by 30+ points, but the vote was a lot lower than anticipated. Today is the last of the primaries--the official end of the whining, the pouting, the accusations and the BS--especially the BS of the media and their lame attempts to keep non-issue stories in the news.

I know I am dreaming--it has only begun....LOL

Today is the final two primaries--Montana and South Dakota. Obama is expected to win both of these and win handily.

This is the end of this part of the historical political epoch. (always wanted to say that)

More Congressmen Hospitalized

Sorry, but this is the result when we allow these guys and gals to spend 50 yrs in the Congress. It is called old age.

Sen. Robert Byrd, the oldest member of the U.S. Senate and a fierce opponent of the Iraq war, was taken to a Washington-area hospital for observation on Monday after a caregiver noticed that he was lethargic, a spokesman for the West Virginia Democrat said.

Byrd, 90, was at work in the Senate earlier in the day and had gone home where his caregiver grew concerned about his condition, spokesman Jesse Jacobs said.

Byrd first won election to the Senate in 1958.

There has been a wealth of these people having to go to the hospital...I realize that I may seem a bit cold, but I do think that there should be a two term limit on all these guys and gals. Ifr they stay longer then they start acting like it is their god given right to rule.
