Edwards Dishonors The Military

Presidential hopeful John Edwards said Monday that Americans should speak out against the war in Iraq this Memorial Day weekend. The  leader of the powerful American Legion was highly critical of Edwards inappropriate message on this, Memorial Day, that was set aside to reflect on the sacrifice of the American military. In my opinion, ALL AMERICANS should be incensed at Edwards deplorable comments!

Edwards also stated that ALL  young people should serve their country, “not just poor kids who get sent to war.” It sounds as though he wants to re-institute the draft!!! It also sounds as though he thinks only “poor kids” get sent to war! That must really upset those Americans serving who have gone through years of education and training in fields such as law or medicine (my nephew who is a surgeon, graduated from the University of Chicago Medical School and was in private practice on the left coast, volunteered for military service and specifically requested duty in Iraq).

Possibly Edwards was thinking of those who can’t afford $400.00 haircuts or $28 Million dollar houses as being “poor” and that is why he made that statement. NOT! He wants “mandatory service” for all Americans! I would bet that “mandatory for all Americans” does not include the members of The Edwards family!!!

 The only conflict that John Edwards is concerned with is the one he is engaged in trying to get the nomination from the Democratic Party for 2008 and he IS worried that Obama or Clinton have “more juice”.

John Edwards is a JOKE!

Just Another Illinois Democrat Giveaway Program!

                                      

If you are a student with a “B” average or better and are illegally in The United States, Illinois State Senator Martin Sandoval, a Chicago Democrat, has introduced a bill that would provide State backed low cost student loans that you could be eligible for to further your education. Please don’t misunderstand the reason is NOT to help the illegal immigrants to get an education but to make them beholden to the Democratic Party with the 2008 elections looming on the horizon. It’s business as usual in the State of Illinois with the Dems spending OUR tax money to get votes. 

What happens when the illegals get the loans that are backed by the State of Illinois and they go bad because the recipients are in jail, go back to where they should have stayed in the first place, or simply assume another identity to avoid payment (as those in the collection business know is all too commonplace)? The State pays the bank! Where does the state get the money? They get it from us in the form of reduced services and increased taxes. This is just WRONG! We are the CHUMPS once again.  I would suggest quickly writing, calling and emailing not only your own State Senators and Representatives but also ALL of them to make them aware of your displeasure on this ridiculous idea to further “pick your pockets”. Forget the Governor as he is brain dead and will approve anything raising taxes and or that will financially bury the State of Illinois. RWD

Democratic Congress is TANKING!

From 05/15/2007 National Review online:

Poll: Congress 29, Bush 33   [Byron York]

In a new Gallup poll, just 29 percent of those surveyed say they approve of the way Congress is handling its job, versus 64 percent who disapprove.  The approval rating is down from a high of 37 percent approval in February, just after Democrats took over.  The 64 percent disapproval rating is one point higher than Congress’ disapproval rating just before last November’s elections.  The 29 percent approval rating is four points below President Bush’s 33 percent approval rating in the new poll.”

Good job Nancy and Harry!
