Lets get Started

Ok, lets get started here.
This blog will Focus on some hot topics we are facing today. What I hope is for people to get made or accuse me of being wrong. That will stimulate the blog more and we can get better sides of the story or more feelings into the entries.

Right now how about some politics. The basic points for this would be is it a good thing that the country is divided so much. We saw it in 2000 and we are seeing it now. I unfortunately was not in the country back in 2000, but this time I've been able to keep up with the races and the sides some people are taking.

Wouldn't it be a good thing to have a majority split than we could have a fourth and fifth check and balance for the people to decided? If we are all united than wouldn't we just let the President get away with anything? Much like if we got a Demicate President in the White house then Congress would make sure he couldn't pass anything and everything. Way be so worried about a country with different sides. I know a country with only one side is a failure waiting to happen.

I am not ben.
I believe that if a country was completely behind every action of a government, we could get a lot done. But as happens, we agree with some things and disagree about others. I thinks its great that everyones opinion matters. I also think its great we have a representative government that puts many choices in the hands of a few representatives and we vote for those representatives. It keeps us able to do our work, and they can spend full time at theirs. Although the nation is divided on many issues, we the people still run the nation and not some dictator. I think what ben is talking about is blind trust in a leader. Its always healthy to have your own opinions and not rely on others to make them for you as many people are more than willing to do. I think I am safe to say that you can always question the directions given by a leader or anyone and see their merit for yourself. If you dont, you might do or support something you personally think is wrong. Of course, with our system , your tax dollars might be used for something you dont agree with, but as long as you vote for what you think is right, you can take maybe a little comfort in that.

Something interested me yesterday October 26, 2004. It was the story that has arisen about the mission explosives in Iraq. Is it Shocking the New York Times did the story and is it dumb-founded that the Times was lieing.
I for one am not surpised that it turned out the way it did. Kerry jumped on it and the White House told the "rest of the story"
What we know is the weapons were their when the inspection team came through their some time in March maybe late Feb. When we came through their in Late March the 101 airborn said they found nothing their but did not check the whole compound. What we know is that Saddam did move the weapons around, heck he moved money and family around of course he would of moved the biggest stock of weapons he has around.
I continue to lose trust for the NY times the more the try to defame the person no matter who that person is. It's not an ethical thing to do just like Michael Moores fantisy world of defaming someone the Times had taken a side and will use what they want to stop someone. What ever happened to Objective reporting which lacks in most of the national media who claim to preach it.
