Should bin Laden Have Been Buried on Land?

Lots of reasons not to do it.  The main one being that it would create a shrine to the martyr.

On the other hand … and I can’t decide if my idea is laughable nonsense or if it’s a seriously good idea … if your objective is to look for terrorists, and you want to make it easier to find those terrorists, wouldn’t a bin Laden grave site be the ultimate “honey pot”?  Anybody who would visit the location would instantly self-identify as an al-Qaeda supporter.

Apparently, There IS Bipartisanship in Washington

Apparently, there is bipartisanship in Washington … at least when the right “constituents” come calling.

You probably already know about the foreclosure document mess.  Well, lucky for the banks, some constituents contacted their Senators, and almost instantly, a bill protecting the banks was passed.

A bill that homeowners advocates warn will make it more difficult to challenge improper foreclosure attempts by big mortgage processors is awaiting President Barack Obama’s signature after it quietly zoomed through the Senate last week.

The House passed the bill last April.  So it’s off to the president for his signature.

So, you see, Washington does pay attention to what “constituents” want, as long as those constituents are the paying kind.

Conservatives Are Mean Spirited

Liberals, on the other hand, are truly compassionate.  Want proof?

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
