Vietnam vets face struggle to survive
Some are living in woods, cars By Victor WhitmanTimes Herald-Recordvwhitman@th-record.com
Monticello - Vietnam vet John Venticinque once dodged bullets for his country. Now he's dodging cockroaches in a flea-bag motel in Monticello, stuck living for months in Room 103 because he can't find a place to stay in Sullivan County.

'Wait Wait' Laughs at Disorganized Dems

It's pretty sad when an NPR talk show gets a chuckle from the audience by joking about the lack of any organized framework for the Democratic Party platform. Which is a great opportunity for me to push a framework I've been able to use with great success. For those of you who read my diaries and have jumped on board, I know you're sick of hearing this. For those who haven't, feel free to join the movement for integrity, competence and the common good.

GOP Bought Hayes' Vote on CAFTA

Everyone knows that Robin Hayes broke his promise to his constituents. He had promised to vote against CAFTA, the Central American Free Trade Agreement. Republicans and corporate interests in Washington had different plans for Hayes.

Hayes sold his vote. He sold out his constituents. Now we're finding out just how much the Republican Party and corporate Washington are paying Hayes for that vote. The Charlotte Observer has this to say:

All the dirty details below the fold...

Saturday silliness

Edge Designs is an all women run company that designs interior office space. They had a recent opportunity to do an office project in NYC. The client allowed the women of this company a free hand in all design aspects . . . including the men's room.


Abortion in North Carolina

With the love fest going on between our newest Supreme Court Justice and the right wing kingmaker, James Dobson, the debate about abortion in America is heating up. And it's especially heating up in states where the death penalty exists, states like North Carolina, where we routinely kill people for killing other people. Which raises this question for right-to-lifers: If all abortions were to become illegal in North Carolina, what would be the penalty for the perpetrators?

Our Veterans Deserve Better!

WASHINGTON - Dozens of veterans from southcentral Pennsylvania donned their caps and headed to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to lobby their congressmen for more ample health care and retirement benefits.

Rep. Todd Platts, R-York County, was one of the four representatives and two senators who met with the supportive crowd to discuss the Veterans of Foreign Wars defense and legislative goals for 2006.

For Lonnie Frampton, of VFW Post 477 in Carlisle, and many of his fellow vets, the central issue is convincing the government to pick up more of their health care tab.

Frampton, 69, wants to end federal deductions of veterans' retirement benefits to pay for VA medical treatment.

Wilson Wingers Duck Bush

Singing the praises of Abraham Lincoln and Ronnie Raygun, the GOPers in Wilson had a coming out event last night. You wouldn't know from this story that their party happens to control the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. Can't blame them, really. Bush and Rove are a toxic stench that pervades the entire Republican Party: no competence, no integrity, and no interest in the common good.

Often citing Ronald Reagan or Abraham Lincoln, the candidates for state legislature, the judiciary and county offices stressed their qualifications for the positions.

I wish I had been there . . . it would have been like being on the Andy Griffith show:

David Godwin, candidate for sheriff, said Sheriff Wayne Gay has been in office too long. He said after 24 years of service, it's time for some new blood. He told the crowd he would go after all levels of crime with vigor — from dog theft to murder.
