I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
As the election season continues and I am sickened further by all the attack ads on TV I reflect on something else that makes me sick. While farmers all over the country are dealing with the intense drought our wonderful politicians are breaking records on campaign spending. Way to keep the priorities in focus you irresponsible idiots!
OpenSecrets.org is a great place for some information on political spending.
Things that interest me are the numbers behind the people. Especially the people that make decisions for us Tax Payers. If your bored, poor, or unemployed take a moment to give the Government Officials below a call or stop by there website (click on their name below) and let them know what a great job they’re doing allowing Allendale to be the 10th poorest county in America.
Love charts and graphs? Me too. A picture generally says a thousand words. So here are a few.
Gee, still wonder why unemployment is still high? It’s not just the Manufacturing sector. This is just one of many sectors that have declined and continue to do poorly. So until we get back to providing the world with goods and services like we did in the past unemployment is going to be high. Until higher education is affordable for all unemployment will be high. Until America is competitive in world markets like the past unemployment will be high. See the Made In America series from ABC for further clarification. I think you get the point, if not do some further research.
Just for those that are not aware the President cannot fix this problem alone. All of the parties involved need to get on board. It’s us against the rest developing world and at the moment we are losing horribly. See China for reference if you doubt this.
I thought that this post was good reading and even some of the replies were pretty good also. Either way I think that Government salaries need to be looked at with a microscope. In this economy people should not be getting grotesque galleries when Firemen are volunteers, Police Officers get low pay and America’s soldiers get shot at and blown up for peanuts.

Agencies Pile Up Unnecessary Printing Costs – $930 Million
Encouraging federal employees to hit “print” less could save taxpayers $930 million.
A report finds that federal agencies – excluding the Department of Defense (DOD) – spend nearly $1.3 billion a year on office printing. Of these printing costs, the study identifies $440.4 million a year – 34 percent – spent on unnecessary printing. These figures do not include the funds agencies spend to publish various documents for public consumption, but rather the estimated annual printing expenditures based on the average federal civilian employee.
From Eve Andrews, at Grist: “Modern Christmas as its best self, I think, is a celebration of security and abundance and love, but that all takes place against a pervasive background fear that those things might be impermanent.”
december magazine was created in 1958 by a group of poets, writers, and artists: “We are humanists…far more concerned with people than dogmatic critical or aesthetic attitudes.” Many of the new-to-us voices they publish go on to major literary success — think Rita Mae Brown, Raymond Carver, Joyce Carol Oates.
