The great thing about getting older is you tend to say what is on your mind without worrying about what others think. So, here is a little of what is on my mind, or at least what is left of it.

Lies

The Republicans lie with impunity yet demand the severest reprimands for any whose truth is not absolute and verified by named sources Why are we letting them get away such a double standard? Bush lies, Cheney seldom does much else. Rice lies, Rumsfeld lies–is there one member of this administration who ever tells the truth?

What kind of leverage are they using to make people back down and kowtow to them? It makes one think of J. Edgar Hoover and his secret files or McCarthy and his lists. When people are afraid to stand up to governmental malfeasance, then something is terribly wrong. Is it any wonder that citizens are so concerned about the extension of the so called "patriot act?"
