Oh My Goodness
Sadly, there are very few things left in this world that are sacrosanct and I am sure that motherhood is one of those things. Yes, I am quite willing to go out on a limb and say motherhood and respect for one's mother is one of those things.
Shame on you for referring to your mom as "ho" in your article about the speaker of the house being a crybaby. If you want to call him a crybaby go ahead - what's' the big deal? But referring to a woman, any woman, as "ho" is despicable but - oh my goodness - referring to your own mom as such is not funny and did not underscore any point. In fact, it made you seem petty, a small person, willing to abuse the power of the press, to make a point.
Disrespecting your mom and all women publicly was a poor decision on your part. That kind of "humor" if that's what you want to call it - only adds to the erosion of what little moral fiber is left in our society.
A) You owe your mom an apology.
B) You owe women an apology.
C) You need to rethink your editorial obligation - the obligation to serve your readers in an ethical manner.
In conclusion I say - shame, shame on you!
Editor's Note: Rick IS petty and small. He's also a crybaby. But don't worry about his mother, she'll never read the offending column because Rick keeps her locked in the closet.
Is it not sad that so many Democrats were opposed to the reading of our Constitution in the House Chamber? It was beneath their dignity to be treated like high school students and an affront to their knowledge of this incredible document. Yet they have displayed an incomprehensible lack of understanding that our Constitution, in words and in intent, implores you and I to maintain a federal government that is limited in its power and scope over our lives. Democrats and Liberals have consistently shown their penchant for a more expansive government role in our lives.
And they only felt it beneath them to listen to the reading of our Constitution because their arrogance has grown so much that their humility is rarely visible. The arrogance of many Republicans is no less displeasing.
If you have not read the Constitution lately, fair reader, may I suggest that you do so? It is a short read, yet so very long on inspiration.
Vision And Leadership
The Final Count Down for Project Constellation (the return of man to the Moon and on to Mars):
4-3-2-1 ignition (dud) -- and we have! Change We Can Believe In (unemployment)
The President has terminated Project Constellation (a real stimulus program). Unemployment!
Mr. JFK what has happened to your vision, leadership and inspiration?
Remember Project Apollo ("Within this decade to place a man on the moon")? Grumman (Lunar Module) etc. Employment!
Why has he sent our Space Program (heavy lift capability to support the International Space Station) Offshore (i.e. outsourced) to a foreign country (Russia)?
The previous Administration created Project 'Constellation. The current Administration created Project 'Cancellation'. A Space Program that is a road-map to Nowhere.
