The Star Spangled Banner like you never heard it

I found this on Vidder.com. It is THE greatest retelling of the events that Francis Scott Key witnessed at Ft. McHenry. If you are a Patriot that loves this country, loves freedom, and are concerned about the full-blown assault on freedom you cannot help but be moved to tears with this presentation

I have to admit, every so often Senator Dorgan is right

I have had several issues with Senator Dorgan, but as a matter of principle I have to give credit to him when I find out he does a good thing. While the article is over ten years old now, it also makes my beloved sister a part of Congressional history. During debate on lowering the Blood Alcohol Content in 1998 the Senator read part of a letter my sister sent him about the wreck that LES LEMM caused in 1996.

So, thank you Senator Dorgan.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."


--Cesare Beccaria, On Crimes and Punishment, quoted by Thomas Jefferson in Commonplace Book, 1774-1776

Government Provided health care

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ SENATOR BYRON
DORGAN IS CHAIRING A HEARING TODAY IN WASHINGTON ON THE INDIAN HEALTH CARE
SYSTEM.


DORGAN SAYS STANDING ROCK SIOUX CHAIRMAN RON HIS
HORSE IS THUNDER IS SCHEDULED TO BE AMONG THOSE TESTIFYING.


DORGAN SAYS ESTIMATES SHOW THE FEDERAL INDIAN
HEALTH SERVICE IS FUNDED AT ABOUT 52 PERCENT OF WHAT'S NEEDED. HE SAYS INDIANS


HAVE SHORTER LIFE EXPECTANCIES THAN THE REST OF THE U.S.
POPULATION.



If this is how bad government provided health care is now, what happens under socialized health care?

I've been convinced I'm wrong...I'm going to become a Democrat

There are some Democrats that have done somethings that convince even the most ardent conservative to start to vote for them There leadership has shaken my very base of belief and after much soulsearching I have decided I have no choice but become a Democrat.

First Charlie Rangle didn't report $75,000, then Secutary Gutnier forgot to pay taxes for several years, and now Tom Dashel $120,000 including fail to report a borrowed chauffer. The most surprising thing is after Vice President Biden saying that it is patriotic to pay taxes doesn't seam fazed by their financial treason.

So, since I don't like all the social spending and it seams if you are a Democrat you don't have to pay taxes, I am here now declaring I AM A DEMOCRAT.
