A Case Against the House

Would it be possible to file a lawsuit against the House for gross neglect? They signed for a second time this year a bill that they will admit publicly, they did not read.

I’ve not heard anyone ask this question anywhere. Interested to hear any thoughts.

Thomas Jefferson… Brilliance

My sister forwarded an email to me the other containing a selection of quotes from Thomas Jefferson. Really great examples of the timelessness of applied logic and wisdom. But, I never believe anything that is forwarded to me so I thought I would do some reading. I found on the a resource through the University of Virginia Website that I decided was pretty credible. The following quotes deserve to be shared;

  • “I fear, from the experience of the last twenty-five years, that morals do not of necessity advance hand in hand with the sciences.” –Thomas Jefferson to M. Correa de Serra, 1815. ME 14:331
  • “The nation who [has] never admitted a chapter of morality into her political code,… [will] boldly [avow] that whatever power [she] can make hers is hers of right.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Langdon, 1810. (*) ME 12:375
  • “I may further say that I have not observed men’s honesty to increase with their riches.” –Thomas Jefferson to Jeremiah Moor, 1800. FE 7:454
    • I would exchange men’s with political entity, be it a politician, office or agency.
  • “The sheep are happier of themselves than under the care of the wolves.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia Q.XI, 1782. ME 2:129

Those are just a few. Look up Thomas Jefferson. Comment a quote.

Thanks

Hopeful for right-wing government in Israel.

There is a link off of the Drudge Report right now to an article in the Jerusalem Post explaining how the U.S. administration is “worried over the prospect of right-wing government” in Israel. THIS U.S. is hopeful for a right-wing government for Israel! The ridiculousness of the any middle east peace process is that there even is one. Islam calls for the extinction of the Jewish people. It is in the Hammas charter to work to that end. The arrogance of the U.S. as I see it is to think we can do anything about it but get behind Israel in a meaningful way. Why does anyone think western society can peacefully coexist with a culture who would sentence victim of a gang rape who became pregnant and attempted an abortion to a year in prison and 100 lashes? WTF! And that was in Egypt which isn’t even at the most extreme end of the Islamo-fascist scale. Why would we desire peace with these people? They have given no indication they have any intrest in peace. So anyway I hope Israel votes in the mosr right-wing government they can muster. Our sword has obviously gone flacid. Lets hope Isreal is’nt afraid to hold theirs up and use it!
