    Giffords voting makes my day. Best news to come out of this.

    The vote was 269-161 in favor, which means it was not even close.

    If I'm not wrong, it was pretty much the same as the Republican position at the time. President Bush talked a lot about an "ownership society."

    Simply saying that your attempts to put all of the blame on Democrats is dead wrong. There was wide, bi-partisan agreement on that issue for many years.

    The Founding Fathers rebelled because they had NO representation, today's Tea Party are misnamed because they do have representation.

    With the economy so weak in a non-corrupt democracy our politicians would be arguing about whether we should increase spending or decrease taxes. Instead they are in a pissing contest determining who can deep six the economy the most.

    This is Herbert Hoover economics and our country is in peril thanks to the debtiphobes.

    I have to admit that watching the USA falling apart and the partisian anomosity and rancor is certainly entertaining.
