Sure as children we have less to worry about but I also think that back then even the adults had less to worry about than we do now. Back then my parents didn't have to worry about where I was after school. Heck as long as I was home before dark and supper was on the table I never heard my mother say, "Stay where I can keep an eye on you." Of course we were better kids back then too, I mean if we weren't...hooo boy, we got it.
Sometimes I think life would be so much nicer if I could just do away with the computers, the TV, the cell phone and answering machine, you know, all the major comforts of today's society. Course then, the worlds problems would still be there, I just wouldn't hear about them.
I sure miss those days, Thank you Statler Brothers for helping me get back there, if only for a few hours.

I do know about her because when I was growing up she was all anyone could talk about and I got to see her on the talk shows. So, I'm wondering, what's she talking about. She looks fantastic by the way. She's appearing on the Donny Deutsch show on CNBC.
Now normally I don't watch that liberal channel, but the first thing I heard Donny Deutsch say was, "As a republican...", ok I'm intrigued. I didn't know Bo Derek was a Republican this could be interesting. He asks her something to the effect that as a woman how can she support the republicans on Roe VS Wade? He says something like "Just on this issue alone, how can you be republican?
Ok, so as a woman you can't make up your own mind about abortion or have opinions on other issues? How idiotic of Mr. Deutsch. Then he asks her about Hillary Clinton running for president, and he seems surprised that, "As a woman", she doesn't really like Hillary.
Ok so women take note. Donny Deutsch has this idea that women are supposed to think a certain way, and if you don't, your shunning your gender, as well as your "political party"(as women are supposedly "statistacally Democrat").
This is just another example of how Democrats want people in their party to think alike, they all want democrats to be clones of Supreme Court JUstice Ginsburg and if your not they want you to go to hell. Democrats want everyone to depend on them for everything so they can stay in POWER. They have totally lost it. I can't stand this, "Click".
Is it any wonder I had nightmares last night? I mean the last thing I saw was Donny Deutsch for crying out loud.

You have to be kidding me. If Wal Mart goes, so goes a ton of paying jobs. If wal mart is so bad for America why does it that..."Wal-Mart, [is] the largest U.S. private-sector employer."
It seems like the ones that blame Wal Mart for what's bad don't look at what Wal Mart does that's good. They are helping keep the economy going(duh). This is really just some friggin wacko's making mountains out of molehills. Geez people, get a grip.

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat and was for distribution of all wealth. She felt deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican which she expressed openly.
One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his opposition to higher taxes on the rich & more welfare programs. In the middle of her heart-felt diatribe based upon the lectures she had from her far left professors at her school, he stopped her and asked her point blank, how she was doing in school. She answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain. That she had to study all the time. She never had time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of spending all her time studying. That she was taking a more difficult curriculum.
Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Mary?" She replied, "Mary is barely getting by", she continued, "all she has is barely a 2.0 GPA" adding, "and all she takes are easy classes and she never studies." But to explain further she continued emotionally, "But Mary is so very popular on campus, college for her is a blast, and she goes to all the parties all the time and very often doesn't even show up for classes because she is too hung over."
Her father then asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your 4.0 GPA and give it to your friend who only had a 2.0." He continued, "That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair equal distribution of GPA."
The daughter visibly shocked by the father’s suggestion angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I worked really hard for mine, I did without and Mary has done little or nothing, she played while I worked real hard!"
The father slowly smiled and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

Excerpt from the December 3, 1992 Somalia News Update
"My feeling is it's a mistake with the present conditions as
they are," said Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., chairman of the House
Appropriations subcommittee on defense.
Murtha, at a news conference, said there is "no clear-cut
mission. The rules of engagement are not clear, and we have no
purpose in being there. It's not in our national interest. And for
those reasons I, at this point, oppose deploying troops to Somalia as
bad as the situation is."
Fair weather patriots...hmmm...
I simply could never say it as well.

Colonel Repya, Sir, We are all tired with you. God Bless, you great American Patriot.
A word from Col. Repya
We've written here several times about Minnesota's Lt. Col. Joe Repya, who volunteered to return to active duty for service in Iraq at age 59. Joe's previous service includes command of a rifle platoon in Vietnam and flying helicopters in the first Gulf War.
Joe is a classic citizen patriot and activist. He first came to public attention in March 2003 when, disturbed by the anti-war campaign mounted by Minnesota liberals, he arranged for the production of lawn signs saying "Liberate Iraq -- Support Our Troops." His effort garnered a lot of publicity, and Joe eventually distributed 30,000 signs.
Today he writes:
Two weeks ago, as I was starting my sixth month of duty in Iraq, I was forced to return to the USA for surgery for an injury I sustained prior to my deployment. With luck, I'll return to Iraq in January to finish my tour. I left Baghdad and a war that has every indication that we are winning, to return to a demoralized country much like the one I returned to in 1971 after my tour in Vietnam. Maybe it's because I'll turn 60 years old in just four months, but I'm tired:
I'm tired of spineless politicians, both Democrat and Republican who lack the courage, fortitude, and character to see these difficult tasks through.
I'm tired of the hypocrisy of politicians who want to rewrite history when the going gets tough.
I'm tired of the disingenuous clamor from those that claim they "Support the Troops" by wanting them to "Cut and Run" before victory is achieved.
I'm tired of a mainstream media that can only focus on car bombs and casualty reports because they are too afraid to leave the safety of their hotels to report on the courage and success our brave men and women are having on the battlefield.
I'm tired that so many American's think you can rebuild a dictatorship into a democracy over night.
I'm tired that so many ignore the bravery of the Iraqi people to go to the voting booth and freely elect a Constitution and soon a permanent Parliament.
I'm tired of the so called "Elite Left" that prolongs this war by giving aid and comfort to our enemy, just as they did during the Vietnam War.
I'm tired of anti-war protesters showing up at the funerals of our fallen soldiers. A family who's loved ones gave their life in a just and noble cause, only to be cruelly tormented on the funeral day by cowardly protesters is beyond shameful.
I'm tired that my generation, the Baby Boom - Vietnam generation, who have such a weak backbone that they can't stomach seeing the difficult tasks through to victory.
I'm tired that some are more concerned about the treatment of captives then they are the slaughter and beheading of our citizens and allies.
I'm tired that when we find mass graves it is seldom reported by the press, but mistreat a prisoner and it is front page news.
Mostly, I'm tired that the people of this great nation didn't learn from history that there is no substitute for Victory.
U. S. Army
101st Airborne Division Is anybody listening?
Yes Sir, We are, at least those of us who care to listen.

Seems the vote on withdrawal might have scared the Iraqis a little. Fearing that the US might leave them to the wolves, are the Iraqis preparing to offer concessions to the opposition and insurgent groups?

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Iraq's president said Sunday he was ready for talks with opposition figures and members of Saddam Hussein's outlawed Baath Party, and he called on the Sunni-led insurgency to lay down its arms and join the political process.

Is this how stupid the Democrat plan sounds?
To me, yes.
Q Mr. Murtha, you say -- your first point about bringing them home consistent with the safety of U.S. forces. You know about these matters; what is your sense as to how long that would be?
REP. MURTHA: Well, I think they can get them out of there in six months. I think that we could do it -- you know, you have to do it in a very consistent way. But I think six months would be a reasonable time to get them out of there.
Here's another exchange in which John Murtha actually says, "It's time to bring them home."
Q Congressman, Republicans say that Democrats are calling for withdrawal, are advocating a cut-and-run strategy. What do you say to that criticism?
REP. MURTHA: It's time to bring them home. They've done everything they can do. The military's done everything they can do. This war has been so mishandled from the very start. Not only was the intelligence bad, the way they disbanded the troops, there's all kinds of mistakes that have been made. They don't deserve to continue to suffer. They're the targets. They have become the enemy! Eighty percent of the Iraqis want us out of there. The public wants us out of there.

“Chinese people enjoy all forms of democracy and freedom under law, including freedom of religion and belief,” a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry, Liu Jianchao, said.
Yeah as long as it conforms to the idea of religion that has been outlined by the Government. For some reason I'm not buying this Chinese Democracy bit.

Ok so where are all the conspiracy theorists on this one? Did Bush posses some unatural power to direct those tornadoes to the midwest? Was the damage to homes and people caused intentionally here to save some other community elsewhere?

They found that spanking seemed to be associated with more aggressive behavior and increased anxiety in all of the countries. The association was weakest in Kenya, where physical punishment is culturally accepted and common. It was strongest in Thailand, where the culture generally discourages spanking.
So in countries where spanking is accepted, children weren't as aggressive. I take this to mean they were better behaved? Hhmmmm...Interesting.
The CMA's in New York?? Bon Jovi, one of the performers???? Wha?????
Ok it's time to start sending people back to the first grade to teach them the way things are SUPPOSED to be.
Will someone please tell our republican leaders to grow some "backbone", to put it nicely. President Bush is finally answering the Democrats charges of lieing and manipulating pre-war intelligence. Hammer it home! Keep reminding the American voter that the democrats were beating the same drum prior to the war as well as when Clinton targeted Iraq.
There doesn't appear to be a good strong leader coming out of the republican camp. If one doesn't appear soon and the republicans don't start holding the democrats' feet to the fire, the republicans will lose in 06 and 08. The reason the President's numbers are low is I think because we have become dissatisfied with the lack of "backbone" in our republican leadership. So come on Republican leaders, get with the rest of us "radical right wingers."
