An apology

I believe people ought to take responsibility for their mistakes. I apologized last night to liberalNC for being over the top in my comments...and did so without explanation or excuse. Excuses don't excuse poor behavior.

I was angry. It was as if a family member had died and someone I hardly knew came by to offer condolences and then ask for the deceased's possessions before the body was even cold. That's not an excuse...but an explanation of why I was angry.

So, I'll apologize again to LiberalNC and the rest of you for my outburst.

Mike McIntyre....screws us again.

I've commented before that Mike McIntyre is worthless.

Here's more proof...You might want to read this DKos diary for ALL the details READ IT HERE but here's the short version...

A Republican congressman, who has spent the better part of the past two years on a mission to ensure Jesus Christ has a place in all aspects of federal government, has introduced a resolution to designate a week every year to honor the nation's "rich spiritual, and religious history."

Things I'm thankful for...

We just got home from a nice day with friends and family at Nan's parents (in their mid-eighties) home up in Penderlea. I cooked the bird and Nan made her special homemade cranberry sauce with orange zest and she made stuffing, pumpkin pie and so on...and up we went. Our children are in far flung places so we don't often get to spend holidays with them. On the way home we stopped to feed a neighbor's goats and dog and cats keeping a watchful eye for deer along the way.

Save the last bullet for yourself

When I was in Vietnam so many years ago (artillery) I sometimes wondered what I would do if I thought I was going to be captured. Stories of torture and atrocity were common place and I wondered whether or not I could withstand such things. It never came to that, but there were times I was pretty scared.

I've read the accounts of many who were captured and tortured. While I know the hope of returning to their loved ones and home sustained those brave soldiers, I also know somewhere in their minds they were also comforted and rebelliously sustained knowing they held the high moral ground and that their captors would someday be punished for their crimes.

What is the Democratic Party's responsibility? [Thread Closed]

After reading A's post on KOS and after reading Justing's post regarding Dole/Hagan/Neal...and more importantly, the comments, I started to wonder what it takes to get people upset enough to do something about the Democratic Party, it's leadership, and the Democrats we've elected who don't represent our interests.

-frontpaged by R.P. someone beat me to it

Lipsticking a pig........

Mike McIntyre voted for the Military Commissions Act of 2006...authorizing torture and the suspension of Habeas Corpus for "detainees" captured in Iraq and elsewhere. We all also know of at least one Canadian Citizen that was whisked away in an "extraordinary rendition" and held and tortured. Mike helped made this possible and legal. Now he's trying to hide from the facts rather than apologize. Read part of his letter below the fold.
