If you had a Time Machine, what events would you want to go back to? Would you want to alter the course of History? I've been thinking, and here are some of the things I would want to do, not in any order:
1: Go back to 1776 and observe the deliberations leading up to the Declaration of Independence
2: Go back to 1787 and observe the Constitutional Convention
3: Go back to 1793 and watch the striking of the first US coins
4: Go back and observe the ministry of Jesus
5: Go back to the Summer of 1985, one of my best years
6: Go back to the time of the Roman Empire and watch all the history it made
7: Go back to WW 2 and watch some of the battles
8: Go back and see my parents when they were kids
9: Go back to 1969 and watch the first moon landing live
10: Go back and watch several historical sporting events

Obama will be a good President, if he surrounds himself with good advisers, and sticks to his guns when disagreeing with the far left members of the Party.
He also needs to keep his word about working with the Republicans. Even though he's going to have a big majority in Congress, no need to give the opposition any ammunition.
Race didn't seem to be as a big matter as it was supposed to be.
One Republican I'm glad is definately gone:
Elizabeth Dole: How can you call a Sunday School teacher Godless?
2 I hope are gone:
Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia: How can you live with yourself calling
Max Cleeland unpatriotic? He took a grenade for his fellow soldiers in
Nam, losing both his legs and 1 arm. If that isn't patriotic, I dont know what is.
Rep. Virgil Goode of Virginia: Racist SOB who slammed Keith Ellison for being
What were her constituents thinking:
Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota: is 53% of America Unpatriotic?
2 in the wrong place at the wrong time:
Rep. Chris Shays of Connecticut. This year's version of Lincoln Chafee. Good
guy, wrong party, wrong state.
Senator Gordon Smith of Oregon: See above.

Tuesday is Election day. If you're registered, get out and vote! Doesn't matter who you vote for, Democrat, Republican or whatnot, just do it! It's a right and a responsibility. If you don't vote and don't like the results, you have no reason to bitch about it.

candidate who doesn't even know the duties of the VP.
2: Have said running mate and 2 other nutjob members of congress (See Bachmann, Michele and
Hayes, Robin) say that all members of the other party and their Presidential Nominee are
unamerican and should be investigated.
3: Spread rumors that the other Party's Nominee is a Muslim, not an American Citizen, and
4: Fail to calm the mobs at your rallies who call for the hanging of the other party's nominee.
5: Have your Nominee's brother call part of the state of Virginia, a state you need to win,

For example, a few weeks ago in Cumberland, MD, a town about 50 miles from where I live, a High School football game between Cumberland's Fort Hill High and Dunbar High of Washington, DC was ended when the Dunbar coach pulled his team off the field after claiming that his team was being taunted with racial remarks by the Fort Hill Fans. This is still under investigation, and other schools have cancelled games with Fort Hill. If these claims are true, I don't blame the coach for his actions. This isn't the first time I've heard of stuff like this happening in Cumberland. After 9-11, some Idiot put up a sign that said “10,000 towelheads for each American” I saw that sign with my own eyes, and it totally disgusted me. It totally blemished the memories of the 3,000 who died that day, and gave racists more fuel for their bigotry. Also, all over the US, there have been reports of people being discriminated against because they looked Middle Eastern.
More disturbing, last week, At a John McCain rally, someone called for Barack Obama to be hung, and all sorts of other nasty things have been said about him, which I won't dignify, You've all probably heard about them. NOBODY did anything to stop these people. It reminded me of a lynch mob or KKK rally. Politics aside, this gives ALL Americans a bad name. Like it or not, The US is a melting pot, and unless you're a native American, your ancestors came from somewhere else. It's a shame that this vile crap still goes on in a country as great as ours.

1: Parents-LISTEN TO YOUR KIDS! If you have a child that tells you that they're being bullied, the
last thing you need to tell them is ignore them and it will go away. From my experience, it just
makes things worse. Go to the Principal and demand that something be done. If they don't listen,
go over their heads to the school board.
2: School Officials-Also, Listen to the kids! Get the offender into the office and tell them that if
bullying happens again, they WILL face discipline. Ignore the parents who say “Oh the kid's lying
my Little Angel wouldn't do that” if you have proof that they did.
3: Parents of bullies: Get your kids help! If you knew how much it hurts the kid that your kid's hurting
you would want it to stop.
This epidemic has got to stop! Over the years, we've seen what happens when bullying goes unchecked. Does Columbine ring a bell?

When I was a kid, I loved to play games on the Atari, and later, on my Commodore 64 computer. This week, after doing a bit of searching online, I downloaded emulators for both, and the actual game Roms that people have ripped from the original game cartridges and disks. So far, I've found a lot of my favorites, like Pac Man, Missile Command, Space Invaders, and a bunch of others. Takes me back to plenty of fun times in my childhood!

Choice 1: Olie Kolzig: Owns just about every Caps goaltending record, former 40 game winner and
former Vezina Trophy winner, lead the Caps to the 1998 Stanley Cup finals, been part
of the organization for 20 years, 2 time All Star.
Choice 2: Brent Johnson: Quality Backup, can give you good play if he has to play for prolonged
stretches, tied and NHL record with 3 straight playoff shutouts in 1 series when a
member of the St. Louis Blues.
Choice 3: Christobal Huet: Newly acquired, 22 wins between Caps and Montreal, 2007 All Star,
Led NHL goalies in save percentage 2 years ago.
Since the Caps are in a playoff race, one of these guys needs to step up and play well. Johnson is the only one of the group signed for next year, so contracts are on the line too.

Until today, I had been a fan of your Baltimore Orioles. For the past 10 years, you have ran the team into the ground, and after today's trade of Erik Bedard, the O's best pitcher and an earlier trade of Miguel Tejada for minor leaguers who are years away from making any impact, I am convinced that you are no longer interesting in fielding a competitive team. The Orioles have not had a winning season since 1997, and until you sell the team and quit your interfering, I'm afraid things are going to get worse and the 2008 season and further years could be even worse then 1988 was.

Do you think the 2007 New England Patriots are the greatest sports team of all time? They're a Super bowl win away from completing a 19-0 record. Tom Brady set an NFL record with 50 TD passes, Randy Moss catching a record 23 of them, and they scored at a video game pace. Do the Giants have a prayer against them? Their last meeting was close, a 38-35 Pats win a few weeks ago.
