Republicans take the Senate? Maybe

leave a comment »

UPDATE: It is going to be a late night boys and girls.  The House and Senate are up for grabs.  This race is going to be close, a race that may define the trail our country will take for the next decade.  Both the Democrats and Republicans are sweating.  Nanci Pelosi looks like she just finished a workout, and it seems as a result of the race she has developed a nervous tick.  So far the Republicans have taken Kentucky, Indiana, Florida, Ohio, Alabama, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.  Vermont, Delaware and Maryland has been snagged by the Democrats.  Who will grab the seats necessary to keep power in the Senate?  Will the Democrats stop sweating?  Will Nervosi Pelosi ever stop with the twitching?  Stay tuned for updates to find out.

Men have officially become obsolete

with one comment

Yea, that’s  right guys I said it.  We are about to get shit canned!  I feel that George Orwell was not an author but a genius who could predict the future.  The era of the male reproductive system is coming to a close.  The scientists of our time have began theorizing that it’s possible to create male sperm from stem cells!  Progress in the field has already been made with mice.  Yet, the mice created by these “copycat sperm cells” died quickly after birth.  I understand that Dr. Karim Nayernia’s research is focused to benefit infertile men so they too may bear offspring, but this has so many side effects.  What if this potentially gets out of control.  This is such a controversial issue.  It might not just be focused on the infertile man in the future.  Man could be erased from the picture altogether.  Women won’t need us at all!  We will become obsolete!

Capital Punishment: Is it Just or does it fit the crime?

with 9 comments

Being a Roman Catholic and a Conservative I am torn.  In the eyes of the church, capital punishment is considered murder in the eyes of God.  As a Conservative, it is seen as a punishment similar to the Code of Hammurabi: “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”  In this case it was a life for a life.  In MANCHESTER, N.H. a judge issued New Hampshire’s first death sentence in nearly 50 years to a man who gunned down a police officer in 2006 and refused to look his victim’s relatives in the eye as they addressed him in court Monday.  According to the article written on foxnews.com on December 22nd,  Addison, a former Boston gang member with a long criminal record, would not look at Maryann Briggs, the mother of the officer, even when Judge Kathleen McGuire told him to. 

“Your name will never be uttered from my lips again,” Maryann Briggs, told Addison, 28.

“You and only you are to blame for the sentence you received. I will not look back and feel anything for you except justice was done,” she said.

Now we have to ask ourselves does the punishment fit the crime?  Should this man, who clearly has lived a life of violence, deserve to die?  Is it our choice to decide between life and death, or do we leave up to God?

Caroline Kennedy: Are you kidding me?

with one comment

Caroline Kennedy should not take Senator Hillary Clinton’s senate seat.  This is an absurd notion.  What experience has she had?  She’s a lawyer. Wow that’s something.  Oh and she has written books on the Constitution.  Who the hell cares what she has written.  She has also written numerous books on poetry.  She’s really trying to tell me she has the experience to represent the entire state of New York?  I’d prefer Obama, although he is going to be the future president, take her place because as a community organizer he has had atleast a little more experience than Caroline Kennedy.

Early Christmas Gift for the Auto Companies

with one comment

            The White House did the right thing stepping in trying to keep the the auto makers afloat.  Although it is only a minuscule 17 billion, it’s definitely something.  Something Congress is too scared to do.  They’re going to try and wait until Obama gets in office.  They don’t want to place blame on anyone especially themselves.

Obama, Blagojevich and Macbeth

with 12 comments

President Elect Barack Obama has recently looked into conversations between the members of his cabinet and Blagojevich and has washed his hands clean of any accusations.  What does Obama think he’s doing?  All of a sudden he’s President Elect and he’s infallible from error?  Who does he think he is? Macbeth!?  However, in the end of Macbeth, it isn’t such a happy ending.  Macbeth doesn’t get away with what he did.  He gives into corruption, his greed for power.  Macbeth somehow comes to the conclusion that he is invincible because he wasn’t born of the womb just like many people think Obama is invincible because he is from a different country.   Does anyone see a commonality?  Obama is not invincible.  Someone needs to look into this situation, not only Blago but also Obama.  There both from the same state people.  Corrupt Illinois.  And Lady  Macbeth in the background is running the entire show and look what happens to her.  Now all we need is a Macduff to save us.  Does anyone else think the same way or am I the only one with my eyes open?
