I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Suppressing the First Amendment

Eighteen Democratic senators want to force a television network to NOT show a program, simply because it's detrimental to their candidate. So far, the names of all eighteen senators aren't known. I will attempt to post the names here as soon as I learn them. NewsMax has the names of a few this morning, gleaned from the Mobile (AL) Register and the New York and LA Times. The Springfield Journal-Register has the name of another. Needless to say, it's the usual culprits. I've listed them below, and will refresh the list as I learn more:
UPDATE: Now 17 on the list, and the the number opposed has grown to 20. Who are the other three??? Terry McAuliffe also has his knickers in a twist over this (hee, hee).

  1. Senator Ted Kennedy, D-MA

  2. Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA

  3. Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT

  4. Senator Dick Durbin, D-IL

  5. Byron Dorgan, D-ND

  6. Jack Reed, D-RI

  7. Bill Nelson, D-NE

  8. Debbie Stabenow, D-MI

  9. Carl Levin, D-MI

  10. Ron Wyden, D-OR

  11. Bob Graham, D-FL

  12. Tim Johnson, D-SD

  13. Harry Reid, D-NV

  14. Daniel Inouye, D-HI

  15. Blanche Lincoln, D-AR

  16. Ernest Hollings, D-SC

  17. Patty Murray, D-WA

There's another NewsMax news story out today that says that John Kerry may be getting financial support from Iran, and that many of his ideas about the Middle East are spoon-fed him by members of the dictatorship in Iran. If this story is true, it will once again show that the Democratic Party is for sale to the highest bidder, whether it's George Soros or the People's Republic of China, or the mullahs of Iran. Thomas Jefferson's words were that government should be instituted among men to secure the rights of that government's citizens, not to kowtow to foreign interests whose ideas of freedom are totally different from ours.

Members of the Democratic Party are more and more frequently turning to violence to either suppress negative information about their candidates, or to disrupt the workings of their opponents. It's not difficult - nor wrong - to compare this to the work of Hitler's BrownShirts in Germany in the early 1930's. The difference, I hope, is that this time those attempting to intimidate their political opponents run into a gauntlet of defensive steel, and get the beatings they deserve - both physically and in the ballot box. Bill Hobbs in Tennessee is keeping a running record of all the physical abuses, attempts at voter fraud (the successes haven't been discovered yet, but probably exist - in far too large a quantity for us to be comfortable with), and other attempts to disrupt the 2004 elections at all levels.

Welcome to the Banana Republic of the United States of America, brougth to you by too much money, too little brains, and an intense desire to acquire and exercise power.
