Worked well for Gore, Didn't it?

Excite News - Mexico's Calderon Has Insurmountable Lead: "Lopez Obrador stoked fears that Mexico was returning to its fraudulent past, in which the former ruling party rigged elections in its favor for decades.
'They know very well that they don't have anything to celebrate,' he said of Calderon's party. 'It is all choreographed. There is no joy. They know very well what they did.'"
Must have Algore for his campaigned manager. He should take heed: didn't work well for algore.

Declaration of Independence
: "Walden gives us pause to think on the true meaning of human freedom and American independence. Thoreau's spiritual message of nonconformity is a challenge we all should aspire toward. He went to Walden Pond not to escape, but to encounter, the problem of reductionist modernity. He is no mere naturalist or environmentalist. Thoreau recognized that though man lives in nature, he has a supernatural end transcending nature and the world. He would have been critical of modern day environmentalists who 'no longer camp for a night, but have camped down on earth and forgotten heaven.' "
Yep, Thoreau really knew what human freedom and American independence are: living at the expense of someone else. In this case it was at the expense of his "friend" Ralph Waldo Emerson. Hence, he became the father of all those who refuse to get real, productive jobs, but want to indulge their primeval scream at someone else's expense. Long live the loon that cries over Waldon Pond!

He isn't the first one who made a "Declaration of Independence" for the human soul. Seems like someone said it first in the Garden of Eden, "Ye shall be as gods...."

You don't save your soul by abandoning the world and living in idle sloth. You save it by working out your salvation with fear and trembling.
BREITBART.COM - US stars align in anti-Iraq war hunger strike: "Some protestors and experts in public opinion put that down to the absence of the Vietnam War style conscription draft, which means only professional soldiers or reservists can be sent off to war. "

Once in a while a glimmer of truth seeps out in spite of the bias of the main-stream media. The Viet Nam protests were not because of ideology or high ideals, but because of a generation that did not want to be inconvenienced or taken away from their lusts and pleasures. "Make love, not war," is the only creed that resonated with them. If there had been no draft, there would have been no protests and the blood bath directed by the communists could have been avoided. Sad. But they still think they were noble.

BREITBART.COM - Judge Temporarily Bars Navy Use of Sonar: "A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order Monday barring the Navy from using a type of sonar, allegedly harmful to marine mammals, during a Pacific warfare exercise scheduled to begin this week.
The order comes three days after the Navy obtained a six-month national defense exemption from the Defense Department allowing it to use 'mid-frequency active sonar.'
Environmental groups had sued to stop the sonar use during the exercises off Hawaii. The sonar portion of the war games was set to start Thursday.
U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper wrote in her order that the plaintiffs 'have shown a possibility that RIMPAC 2006 will kill, injure, and disturb many marine species, including marine mammals, in waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands.' "

Most people do not realize that the President and Congress have as much right to interpret the Constitution as the courts do, and early in the days of these United States presidents did just that and refused to obey decisions such as Florence-Marie Cooper's above. This warm-fuzzy decision is a good example why women should not be in government, nor should sissified men. Imagine: a dolphin's comfort trumps the defense needs of the United States and her citizens! These people should all be thrown out of office.
