NOTE: I thought I had posted this yesterday, but I guess it remained only a draft?!?! Apologies for that.
A posting on the Chicago Tribune website states that sources tell them a key witness in the former-Governor Blagojevich’s corruption case regarding the US Senate seat is dead.
Christopher Kelly, who cited Federal Attorney pressure in his decision to plead guilty recently in regards to charges against him, is reportedly dead at the age of 51 years old. He was due to testify for the government in the upcoming Blagojevich trial on corruption charges that arose from an alleged “pay-to-play” scheme on the part of Blagojevich in naming a replacement for Obama in Congress.
Here’s link to the entry at the Chicago Tribune Website:

A small Northern Texas School District has voted to allow teachers to carry guns when classes resume later this month. If the plan goes through they will be the first in the nation to take this step to protect the defenseless children and adults in our public schools.

Yesterday, was indeed a great day to be an American, and our Republic has averted disaster for yet another day… Not only did the Senate vote down the Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill, but the Supreme Court struck a blow against racism in our schools, AND the House of Representatives voted to protect our First Amendment right to the Freedom of Speech which was under attack by Democrats.
An effort by over 100 Democrats in the House of Representatives to quell freedom of political speech by using taxpayer dollars to re-enact the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” failed miserably, the final vote barring the FCC from repromulgating it was passed 309-115 (See the Roll Call here). Please note that ALL of the votes in favor of restricting Freedom of Speech were DEMOCRATS!!! Read the rest of this entry »

Edited for typos & clarity – Saturday, June 30, 2007
The Supreme Court of the United States struck a blow against racism in our schools today — despite some of what you might have heard on your local news this evening. I, for one, am happy about that.
Martin Luther King, Jr. preached about judging people on the content of their character, and not the color of their skin. On Saturday, August 28, 1963, in Washington D.C. he spoke the following words;
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.
– Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have a Dream”, August 28, 2007
Affirmative action programs, and using race as the basis for ANYTHING in this country is the OPPOSITE of what MLK, Jr. preached. It is the OPPOSITE of what those who fought for civil rights were fighting for. I just saw on my local news a representative from the NAACP stating that this ruling set back Civil Rights causes. I see it as completely the opposite.
ALL schools should be of good enough quality to attend, should be safe enough to attend, and offer not only equal, but the BEST education you can offer to anyone. Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks are due to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) for exposing yet another lie about the AMNESTY bill currently being debated in the Senate.
Today, the Senate voted against an amendment that would prevent the GRANTING OF LEGAL STATUS TO FELONS — including those who are subject to court orders calling for their deportation!
This is just the latest proof to come out that exposes the lies President Bush and backers of this Illegal Immigrant AMNESTY bill have told to the American people… Read the rest of this entry »
