24. Since when is the truth a temper tantrum.
All sorts of major events have happened in this country since I've been observing and/or involved in politics. What strikes me is that the left/center never names it and claims it! The SC decision was a hack vote by political hacks as demonstrated by their vote. These five have been states rights people and very clear about it. All Conservative Republicans, they turn on their own philosophy, betray it is a better term, and give the election to their political co-religionists *. That's the truth. But nooooooo, what did we get. A civil handover of our election to the big crook, *, through the co-conspirators, the SC 5.

We had Gulf of Tonkin which was known. How much noise was made about that, not much. It's relevant today. Ever hear anything.

We had Iran-Contra which we let die.

We had the blatant lies about babies and incubators plus phony photos of Iraq troops near Saudi Arabia prior to Gulf War 1. Anybody cry fraud?

We had the August memo clearly indicating total incompetence, malfeasance. Any major Democrat lay that one on the line?

The 2000 election (and I like Gore a great deal) was the turning point. If we could do it over again, Gore should have called it theft.

The Democrats treat American politics like a drawing room comedy when in fact it's more akin to professional wrestling. You have to really state the truth loudly and forcefully to get peoples attention and you have to repeat the truth again and again. Sorry, no tantrum suggested, just caring enough about the country and truth to speak it.

2000 was stolen by the Supreme Court, Jeb Bush, and GW Bush. We knew it shortly after the election, we've known it since then, and we know it now. Why shouldn't our leaders say it? We are.

Happy Thanks Giving silverhair (and that's the truth)
