A little bit about the status quo…

Here me out on this one... let's look at our President, as the 'Dad' of the country...Today I was reading through my blogs and ran across this article from whitehouse.gov about "Congress's Failure to Act on Comprehensive Immigration Reform". There is a definite somber tone in this article as President Bush puts on his fatherly voice of disappointment to talk about his wayward child, congress.Ok... so congress doesn't really equate to the President's kid, but we do, don't we?Think about it, what Read more [...]

I can solve the border control issue

Spending my Tax Dollars

Here's a thought, what if we could spend a set percentage of our tax dollars in ways we see fit?Let's say, hypothetically, the feds take $100 from a paycheck on week. What if 50% of that $100 was set up to be spent as the person who earned the money saw fit. I just now listened to a speech given by President Bush on American giving to the fight against AIDS.
