I Love Boston Legal

Ever watched the show "Boston Legal"? Its fabulous. And it's for us liberal hearted folks, and that's the part that surprises me. You'd think a show about lawyers in BOSTON would be very staunchly STUFFY! Either its hollywood, or, because Boston is one of this countries founding cities, they try to keep what this country is about alive. Either way, I love the show. And tonights episode about an employer who fires one of his workers because she smokes at home (not on the job, but at home) was a good indication of where our civil liberties are going. When an employer can dictate what we do on our off time, you have to ask your self "WHERE THE HELL AM I?"

1984? Or was it Animal Farm? Can't remember - itber, but they were both required reading back in highschool. One of them was all about how your always being watched. It was suppose to represent Russia at one time... but I think it's representing us now.

If anyone reads my blog, please start paying attention to what is happening in our country and vote, shout, be heard!

Honestly the man has nothing nice to say about anyone. Or if he should say something nice, he then follows it up with something wrong with the girls performance.


Phewwww that felt good.
It's hard to know whether to laugh or weep about the following.

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multinational corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense.

A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's cocaine conviction is none of our business.

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness, and you need our prayers for your recovery.

You support states' rights, which means Attorney General Gonzalez can tell states what local voter initiatives they have the right to adopt.

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.

Robin Hood in reverse

StarNewsOnline.com | Star-News | Wilmington, NC: "The Republican Congress voted Wednesday to pocket $39.5 billion that was headed for the elderly, the sick, college students and children in one-parent households.

Congress and President Bush want that money � and billions more � so they can make even more tax cuts that will benefit mainly the well off."

If you aren't outraged you aren't paying attention folks!
