I've neglected this blog lately for 2 reasons. One, as I mentioned previously, the mainstream has finally realized that the Bush administration is nothing more than a house o f cards, built upon deceit, lies and the imperative to make a lot of money for themselves and their buddies, all at the expense of Americans. Nothing else matters. It took a Category 5 Hurricane in which reporters witnessed first hand the consequences of a gutted federal program to accomplish this. I can finally turn on the TV and see real news for a change.
Another reason for neglecting this blog is that I have turned my attention to studying the voting record of one of my state Senators who will run for re-election in 2006. In the little time I have had to dedicate to this endeavor, I have discovered, in no uncertain terms, a fact that I have always known intuitively. The GOP routinely votes for issues that advance the interests and needs of the upper level income earners and the wealthy. They systematically vote against any and all bill or amendment that will enhance the lives or livelihoods of those less fortunate, i.e. those who make under $200K per year. That, my dear, friends, is a huge chunk of America's population.... If you look over your GOP elected officials' voting records, you will discover that they do not represent the needs and interests of most of America. What the GOP says has nothing to do with its actions. They talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. And they bank on the fact that you are not reading their voting records.
