More Hoosier Common Sense

I just stumbled across this presidential quote - another example of Hoosier common sense:

"We Americans have no commission from God to police the world." - Benjamin Harrison

It's now been 1,567 days since W's declaration of "mission accomplished. US soldiers killed since "mission accomplished" declared: 3561

And why are kids fat?

At the risk of being called a hypocrite, being a guy who could lose 20 pounds - I think I found the MOST outrageous sign in the local grocery just the other day.

Next time you drive by an elementary school, or attend a school function - count the fat kids. There really is an epidemic spreading (literally) all across this country.

I innocently wandered down the frozen food aisle and noticed a big display near its end. When I got within visual range I saw it. Bags and bags and bags of candy! But the sign is what floored me:

"Get your Back-to-School Candy Now."

This is just insane - Impeach Bush

I just read this morning that the 93rd Hoosier was killed in Iraq.

Yesterday's news was that the Sunni block pulled out of the U.S.-backed Iraqi government.

There can only be two people in this country who think this is going to end well - Bush and Cheney.

They've never understood basic world history. Sunni and Shite factions have been at odds - violently so - for 1,000 years.

Every day there is news out of Washington showing the administration's arrogance. The stonewalling, failure to admit a mistake, and acts against the Constitution are unprecedented.

And, it's sad!
