Attic Quote of The Year!
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~
A sinister list follows with Knaves of 2005, people with political agendas that don't serve the American public well. Theses individuals do well promoting themselves, making false statements, without common sense or actual intellect. Their quotes say it all.
Citizens Against Government Waste have named Senate Minority Leader (D-NV) as their "Porker of the Month. for earmarking almost $36 million in the fiscal 2006 Energy and Water Appropriations bill for 17 energy-related projects in his home state. As ranking member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development, Sen. Reid diverted about one-fifth of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s budget to projects in his home state.
Sen. Reid’s actions weaken the effectiveness of basic energy research while giving the illusion of contributing to it. The earmarks divert funds from peer-reviewed, agency-requested scientific research to his own pet projects. For example, Sen. Reid’s earmarks include $3.5 million to create a new National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Nevada.
As a result, the Department of Energy (DOE) will cut funding for research already taking place at other labs. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado will lay off as many as 100 scientists, or 11 percent of its total staff, mostly as a consequence of congressional earmarking.
It's nice to know Senator Reid has time to screw the whole country when he isn't holding press conferences to slander President Bush and lie about the war on terror.
Or maybe "heart-breaking" news for the anger prone ex-Vice President, who believes he is "Father of the Internet." (That claim is so laughable.) xxx World Wide Web creator Tim Berners-Lee has started a blog just in time for the 15th anniversary of his invention. Berners-Lee first proposed the Web in 1989 while developing ways to control computers remotely at CERN, the Geneva-based European Organization for Nuclear Research. He never got the project formally approved, but quietly tinkered with it anyway, making the first browser available at CERN by Christmas Day 1990. sss Sorry Al, we thought you'd like to know.
Here is an interesting and profound quote from a female Iraqi voter I heard on the radio today: cc We appreciate what the American people and American soldiers have done for us, and for those who criticize President Bush, let them all go to hell!
After being convicted of the four murders and sentenced to death in 1981, Stanley Williams was sent to San Quentin State Prison. Upon arriving at San Quentin, Williams quickly demonstrated violent behavior consistent with a hardened murderer.
While Tookie Williams finds his place burning in Hell, we pay our tribute to the victims and their families who missed the last 25 years celebrating their lives.

It Christmas time and Barney Productions has produced another Holiday Classic!
A large blindfolded Santa hanging from a noose in a high tree in a man's yard has angered homeowners in a Florida neighborhood. Homeowner Ron Stroia at his home located on 555 West 50th Street in Miami Beach put up the Santa doll, which neighborhood children can easily see. The Santa also has his hands and legs bound by some type of wire. One can only wonder what makes a person like Mr. Stroia tick. No question if he is naughty or nice!
It is predicted that all 218 Republican votes are needed or the Democrats and the new tax and spend GOP representatives will aid in sinking the Bush economy, which grew from the ashes of the Clinton/Gore recession. We'll bring the update later and can only hope House Republicans have the leadership needed to get the necessary work of congress done to ensure a healthy and vibrant U.S. economic engine.
