Consider me still on a blog break, but here are questions I've been asking myself, and I wondered if anyone out there could help me answer them:

The Democrats won control of Congress, and very quickly we had 30,000 more U.S. troops in Iraq, our casualties increased, and Democrats continued funding the war. So what did we get out of it?
If Hillary and Obama really opposed the war, wouldn’t they spell out when they’d pull our troops out?
If all the Sunni states in the Mideast know Maliki is just a stooge for Iran, how come the U.S. government doesn’t get it?
Isn’t there a law anywhere that says Dick Cheney can’t continue fixing no-bid contracts for Halliburton while he hangs on to its stock?

Why aren’t all those administrators at the FCC who took free vacations from the corporations they were supposed to regulate in jail?
Why do all those people in Congress get away with accepting “donations” from fat cats and then letting them write legislation like the Medicare prescription clause that fixes into law the concept that drug companies will wholesale their products to the government at retail prices?
Does Bush still consider himself a compassionate conservative while throwing $8 billion a month at his war to nowhere and promising to veto $7 billion a year for a children’s health care program that's proved its worth a hundred times over?

Nancy Pelosi took Bush’s impeachment “off the table” after his administration had already admitted tapping phones and intercepting mail and email without warrants. He and Cheney are still repeating the same lies about Iraq that were refuted years ago. His avalanche of signing statements tell us plainly he refuses to enforce acres of law. What’s a guy have to do to get impeached around here?

After the Bush dynasty hands the presidency back to the Clinton dynasty will the throne have to be retrofitted to handle Hillary’s butt? (That's her on the right in the accompanying photo)

Bienvenidos, which in my awful Spanglish I think means 'welcome,' but if it means 'yo mama' or something, that's not what I meant.
