Makes Me Wanna Holler

In the someone had a sense of humor in the title department, we have study proves virgin birth in sharks. Since I believe in God but don't believe in organized religion, I won't make any more fun of the title than is obvious.

So, even though the majority of the country wants us out of Iraq, the Democrats (my rating is D) folded like a drunken bluffer on the timeline issue, which leads me to ask several questions.
  1. What are these guys being blackmailed with? For the last six years whenever it has been an important issue, there is a lot of posturing and chest beating or someone will be held to accountability and then the whimpering freakin' fold.
  2. Who is representing the people of the United States? I see no evidence of representation of the majority view, unless you count dollars as the majority.
  3. How much longer can the United States continue as an example of the democratic process? It's been a long time since it has worked in the people's favor.
  4. Where is the outrage from the American people? It's our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness that is at stake. It may not be glaringly obvious, but this is the true heart of the matter.
  5. When will the media return to investigative journalism instead of repeating what they are told, as if it were true?
  6. Why are only a few of us asking these questions and why are we regarded as fringe, treasonous or lunatics?
Nothing important, I'm just curious since we certainly haven't improved the lives of Iraqi children. Only one in eight making it to their fifth birthday is just one more reprehensible statistic that will be overlooked by both the public and most of the media.

This video is just as true today as it was forty years ago. The lyrics stay the same and with a little imagination or going to another link you can see it with today's pictures, but I like the original.

  1. I wish I could answer even one of your questions. I am still amazed at what has happened to our republic and that nearly no one seems to care.

    I can't believe the Dems folded. I'm so disappointed I could puke. What the hell was all the posturing for if they were just going to cave anyway? Congress certainly doesn't represent the American public.
