News to give you pause

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that it's unconstitutional to impose the death penalty on child rapists. Go ahead and guess which way the court was split! Justice Kennedy believes the death penalty would be cruel and unusual punishment. I don't know what he thinks of child rape-kind and normal?

Nancy Pelosi stated she is in favor of the "Fairness Doctrine". No one listens to liberal talk radio and the Democrats don't like it so they want to force radio stations to air liberal talk show hosts. Never mind the loss to the radio stations in ad revenue. They can force them to air it but they can't make me listen to it.

Barack Obama gave another speech, he said a lot but all it really amounted to was "I'm going to do all I can to keep gas prices really high, so vote for me."

Schools around New York State dismissed today at 11:00 and will do the same tomorrow. The kids have been playing board games. Nothing like wasting a ton of gas in order to keep the federal funds rolling in.

While on the subject of wasting gas, some Wisconsin officials would like to outlaw drive through restaurants due to concerns about global warming. Is there still anyone left out there who truly believes the global warming B.S. isn't just a way for the government to take control of our lives?

Buried somewhere within the 600+ page Senate housing bill (the one that would require the tax payers of America to guarantee mortgages for people who don't pay their bills) is a provision that will require credit card transactions to be reported to the government. Since when is it the government's business where I use my credit card? So, they don't want to listen to terrorists' phone calls, but they do want to know what I bought at the grocery store. I guess they haven't figured out a way to impose a tax on terrorism.
