Nancy Giles (CBS Sunday Morning): Politics Is Getting Politicized
Edited on Sun Oct-21-07 02:35 PM by tbyg52
Great rant, from the MSM! And a reference to my favorite movie!


Excuse Me, Elected Officials, Exactly Whom Do You Work For?

It's official: Politics have become politicized. How else can anyone explain that the will of the people is being ignored by our elected representatives?


snip

I know this is simplistic, but couldn't we take a teeny bit of that, oh, 10 billion bucks a month that's going God knows where in Iraq and make sure more American kids have health coverage?

Will somebody look at the books, like the fake president's accountant did in the movie "Dave"? His plain ol' accountant-guy logic pointed out ways to cut the fat and get money where it was actually needed. Why can't life imitate art?

The comments section could use some DU-ing, if you have the time and inclination - the freeper types are just copying each others' posts over and over....

Edited to pretty it up.

1. You have to join and
no matter how they promise to keep your email secret it does not work. The only place I ever ever gave my email address was on these political sites. So I was overwhelmed..now since our ISP was bought out by another, this email address is only going to be registered in non-seeable sites.

2. I must have already joined and forgotten about it.
because the page opened for me without further ado.

You can get disposable email addresses here:

(You have to give spamgourmet an email address, but it's just one central place, not everywhere you go.)
