Is Rick Perry a Crook? The Evidence is Mounting…

Americans don’t demand much from elected officials. We just want them to be transparent and fair. What we don’t want are the kind of people who pass out appointments to top donors, create special legislation to conceal their questionable financial activity, and use taxpayer money to help fund expensive vacations. But that’s the kind of guy Texans have in Republican Gov. Rick Perry…

I Am ____________ and I Love My Country, Part 2

I wrote that originally in 2007, it was based on another blogger’s piece and chains back from there. I looked at it today and only had to update the original 5 years and make it 10 in one line. I don’t know if the other writers still feel the same as they did 4+ years ago, but I thought maybe other people might want to copy and paste this, and modify it to your own beliefs. And then, maybe 4 or 5 years from now, you can look back and see if your views have remained consistent.

This is What Happens When You Don’t Vote

I usually try to get back to the Commonwealth once a year. I’ve lived, for the past 30 years, in the same part of England to which two other Virginia women, Pocahontas (my kinswoman) and Nancy Astor, were condemned. So I feel that if I don’t wiggle my toes in some Old Dominion dirt at least once a year, I’ll be pushing up daisies in Brit dirt along with Mrs. Rolfe and Lady Astor.
