Which party is promoting a police state?
The GOP and people on the right are complaining and screaming that the Obama administration is trying to turn the US into a police state ala Hitler. Yet, it is the GOP and folks on the right who are the one proposing all the policies that would turn us into an actual police state. And at this point, I am starting to get pissed. Mostly because they are proposing such legislation in Florida, where I live.

Hillary as Secretary of State?
Scuttlebutt has it that Barack Obama is apparently considering Hillary Clinton and Bill Richardson for the position of Secretary of State. I hope he chooses Bill Richardson. The concern I have with Hillary is that she isn’t a very ethical person. That isn’t to say she doesn’t have good intentions, she just is prone to resorting to lies and deceit to get her way. I don’t respect that and am hoping that Obama will actually place trustworthy people around him, especially in a position as important as Secretary of State.

Is it too late to stop the war with Iran?
If you haven’t been living in a shell and have paid even a modicum of attention to the news in the last few days, you will have learned 2 very important facts. One, Congress gave President Bush approval to launch military strikes against Iran and 2, that he is apparently planning to start a war with Iran before he leaves office!
If you believe this administration’s lies that they are actually working on diplomacy, you are a fool. It was obvious in the lead up to Iraq that they were going to go in regardless of what anyone else thought or did, and it is equally obvious now that they are planning to go in to Iran.

Bush v Clinton
Which is Worse?
I am continually shocked that there are people out there who think that Clinton, because he lied
about an extramarital affair is a worse president that Bush is. Of course, the people who are making these claims never provide a side-by-side
comparison of the relative badness of Clinton v Bush. So here is an incomplete comparison on which president was worse.
