Revision Marches to Social Agenda
Christian conservatives have become bolder after their political gains from the election, and are now pushing harder than ever with new found controls over the content in textbooks that reach a significant portion of the economy. Texas is the second largest customer of textbook companies, and thus is in a unique position for those currently in power here to make sure their dogma is what students across the nation are exposed to. Yet another reason to gain control of school boards.

Chance for Peace
This speech was given by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953. Read through it, and compare as you read words from the heart of the Cold War to the words of George W. Bush. Yes, this speech is anti-Soviet propaganda, but it is also pro-peace, stating that no nation, including the United States, has the right to attack any nation without provocation, and also does not have the right to impose its system of government on other nations. Whereas today we are 'ending dictatorships to spread democracy and free the people.' Can you believe our government is more insane now than it was during the Cold War?

Leading Pollsters: "Something's Wrong Here"
"Zogby, whose firm was not among those that provided network TV coverage of the Nov. 2 election, described the possibility of either incompetence or fraud causing the controversial deviation as "impossible." According to Zogby, it would have required "wrong sampling in wrong areas throughout the country," or the purposeful manipulation of data to obtain exit poll results so significantly different from the official totals. He viewed neither as a possibility. When asked what exactly had happened then, Zogby replied, "a problem, but I don't know where it is ... something's wrong here, though.". . . "

GOP BILL CUTS BACK COLLEGE LOANS, 100,000 STUDENTS MAY

Hmm. Oh shit. Hope everyone that wants to stay in college is looking for a second or third job.

Conservatives Urge Closer Look at Marriage
""If those initiatives are part of a broader effort to reaffirm lifetime fidelity in marriage, they're worthwhile," he said. "If they're isolated if we don't address cohabitation and casual divorce and deliberate childlessness then I think they're futile and will be brushed aside.""

Born-Again Liberal Christians
Interesting ideas.

Bill to Drug Kids Heads for Senate
One issue I will always adamantly oppose. This is not going to help anyone, it is only going to create a government mandated market for the drug companies.
