    The state of affairs in America is at an all time low.  The four concerns are healthcare, banking reconstruction and commerce, Middle Eastern affairs, and the economy.  Since Pres.Obama's first day in office he has been tackling said issues.  But what of McCain?  What has the American Maverick and almost future president of America been up too since Obama took office Jan. 21st? If you really want to know check out this link to the Library of Congress.

    Pay close attention to GOP's front man's S.38 Bill.  Are you kidding me?  America is in the worst recession since the great depression and this guy wants a new Boxing Commissioner and new rules?  Give me a break.  What a terrible waste of American tax dollars.

    Hey, yeah...  This (among a few others) were like, big news in my area of the country (we actually live pretty close to McCain's 'ranch'...which is in lovely Cornville, not Sedona--and if you lived here, you'd understand why the McCain crew obfuscates that one, wink). However, the bill is a big deal water rights/Indian news--it's actually more important than it sounds.

    Well, to be fair (and I don't want to not be), McCain is doing the work of a US senator, not a president, so what he's doing is to be expected.  But he would have been a terrible president.  People really (and obviously, some did, or we wouldn't have elected Obama) need to step out of their partisan boxes and view the situation for what it was, at least.

    Here is some good reporting, for starters:

    Sprinkler Man--you're the one who needs to get real.  Your response was made for the sandbox on soooo many levels.  smile

      You do realize you are now starting to sound like I sounded to you when you first arrived. wink

      There is an endless supply of these guys. Just ask him about his religious/political convictions. lol

        Actually, wink, yes I am aware of it.  Sometimes I just really get fed up at the level of  'discourse' and have found myself mocking.  And that's terribly elitist or something of me, isn't it?  Sigh. sad

          lol Could be. Personally, I have almost given up on making a reasonable response. It is almost as though I never bothered spending time thinking about it and painstakingly typing a well-thought-out argument for all the good it does. So I resort to making fun of them. When I get to outright insults it is probably time to leave. Although this one will quickly resort to personal attacks if you bother to shred his arguments/religious dogma.
