  1. What a staggering day for the Congress, which has recklessly and hastily plunged our country into debt for decades to come. Friday the 13th has taken on a whole new meaning for me. Kleptocracy is now the norm.

  2. I see one person voted present. Who let Obama vote? 🙂

  3. I was a Republican all my life until now. The Republican party in my mind is responsible for this outrages economic mess we are in and you think I am going to even condsider listening to someone like Michele Bachmann who talks out of her elbow.

    It is time to get serious and the only person I have to admitt is President Barack Obama has my trust.

    If he fails, well the Republicans will have my vote back. The truth is. I think the Republicans has lost their way and have nothing to offer but fail policies of the past.

    Maybe twenty years from now the Republicans will have pull their head out of the sand and become the GOP of the past again.

  4. Very glad to see you blogging and twittering, and are posting results! Its time we all take a stand! Make those who are not protecting the contitution accountable, and rewarding those who are protecting the constitution!
