wants the U.N. to uphold its pledge to
fight for freedom
in lands of poverty and

was posing a challenge to the U.N. to uphold its original
goal of ensuring freedom in many forms -- from tyranny, disease, illiteracy and

has vowed to veto the measure. (The
'measure' being State Children's Health Insurance Program.)

So, let me get this straight. Georgie Porgie is real concerned about freedom, only not HERE? In other countries, on other continents? But my freedoms are being trampled every day and the children of this country don't need health insurance? This war is costing us billions, but we can't raise taxes for our CHILDREN?

I am constantly amazed (and never in a good way) by the fact that those who are so adamantly opposed to abortion completely wash their hands of the fetuses/embryos once they can breathe on their own. (Now, don't misunderstand, I am not advocating abortion, not at all. I have never had to make that choice; I am just very thankful that the choice is there for those who feel that they need it. ) My problem is that it is the same rich, white, middle-aged men who stand up there and scream about the sanctity of life who refuse to help those who are already here. Or, they send them to war to be murdered and maimed. How does that make life sacred? Or is it only rich old guys who get to decide?

It appears that some of those rich old guys are actually going to vote to over ride Dubya's veto of the S-CHIP bill. Or so they are saying right now. We will see. We will be watching.
