Meet Your Obligations, No Matter Who You Are

Another member of the party of family values has been busted!  Illinois congressman Joe Walsh was recently hauled into court by his ex wife for not paying over $100,000 in child support payments. He was supposed to appear personally in court, but didn’t.  When asked by the judge why he wasn’t there, his lawyer said it was because he was a member of Congress.    Also, he lost his driver’s license for not having insurance.  Why a bench warrant wasn’t issued for his arrest, I’ll never know.  People, no matter if your rich or poor, politician or whatever, an obligation is an obligation, Meet it!

The Death Penalty-Pros and Cons

There are 2 executions scheduled for today. In Texas, one of the men convicted of dragging James Byrd to death will die. In Georgia, Troy Davis, convicted of killing a cop, is also scheduled to die, even though 7 of the 9 witnesses who fingered him have recanted.  So do you think that Mr. Davis’ the execution should be at least delayed while the facts are analyzed.  It won’t hurt anything. If he’s guilty, he’ll be executed. If the evidence is reanalyzed and found wanting, he’ll be a free man. That is the problem with the death penalty, you don’t have %100 proof in all cases.

10 Years Later….

It’s been 10 years since that day that changed the US.   Do you remember where you were?  How you felt?  If you were like most of us, you probably were totally shocked and in a fog for days. Then you were both sad and outraged.   It was good to see at least for a while the country come together, especially after the 2000 Presidential election. We were no longer Democrats or Republicans, Christians, Jews, or other religions, we were Americans.  We wanted to get the man who ordered the attacks, not knowing that it would take 10 years, lots of lives lost, and 2 wars that are still going on.  We tried to believe that not all Muslims agreed with the extremists.  Then after a while, the novelty went away.  Political divisions are back,  those who opposed expanding the war were called unpatriotic (it should be considered unpatriotic not to voice opposition if done calmly), all Muslims are being painted with the same brush as the terrorists, and we seem to be more divided then ever.  Hopefully, someday, we will have some sort of unity in this country.
