For the past few weeks we receive anywhere from 2-4 calls a day from some politician or some group that supports some other politician with some “important” message. I have also been inundated with email full of “panic” and “need to act right now OR ELSE” messages against this candidate or that candidate.
I was up late Sunday night watching the news coverage on this and I was happy I could witness this historical moment in our country’s history. Everyone has their own opinion on the bill that was passed and here is mine. I do not expect all to agree, but here is my take. As a […]
I came across the new White House Blog today: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/. Although it is not WordPress 😉 – I will definitely follow this and see how they actually use it. If you have never been to the White House web site – it is definitely worth a visit. The site has all kinds of facts, videos, […]
I remember voting in 1996 – my first ever Presidential election. Back in those days I attended Young Republican meetings at Penn State and I voted for Bob Dole. The next two elections I voted for the democrats that ran and even attended my first rally (for Al Gore) in Daley Plaza with Ben and […]

Voting is very important to me. Voting not only let’s me voice my opinion about the future direction of the government officially, it also […]
During college, I by chance, picked up a biography of Lyndon Baines Johnson and ended up reading in and many others in between games of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. By the end of the summer, I had a new and profound understanding of one of our greatest presidents of all time. After a hard week, […]
It is once again the first Tuesday after the first Monday in Novemeber. I was proud to turn in my punched ballot this morning before I went to work, and I hope this election charges the country up for future elections because every vote does count.

After having quite the discussion this morning with co-workers, I thought it might be handy to have the links of some of our important documents. Declaration of Independence US Constitution Bill of Rights It is always good to go back and re-read the documents that have shaped our country.
I have had enough. The jokes, the comments, the bashing, and now the proposed marriage amendment?
