ALL POLITICIANS, LAME STREAM MEDIA ELITISTS, LIBERALS, RINOS, OTHER STUPID PEOPLE should note that LETTING US KEEP THE MONEY THAT WE HAVE LEGITIMATELY EARNED SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED A FREAKIN COST! 

My Case of Bad Timing

I probably could not have chosen a worse time to make my case for the repeal of the 17th Amendment.  As I write this Illinois Governor Blagojevich is on his world innocence tour while avoiding his impeachment trial.  In New York, the last two weeks of news has been dominated by talk of whether Caroline Kennedy has the right stuff.  Gov. Paterson did not think so and mud was slung.  Delaware’s choice to replace Vice-President Biden did not get as much press, but many believe that state’s new senator is a “place-holder” for Biden’s son, Beau.
