Saying the word impeachment in some circles is like farting aloud. It has a stunning effect. We need to re-educate ourselves and our loved ones. We especially need to educate our political leaders and elected representatives, who are failing to do the job they were elected to do.

"They hate our freedoms. They hate the fact that we hold each individual -- we dignify each individual. We believe in the dignity of every person." Yessirree, just ask American John Walker Lindh, Australian David Hicks, and a few other unnamed POWs, ask the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay Cuba, how much "each individual" was dignified after George Bush, the "decider," decided to change the Geneva Conventions regarding torture and abuse!!!

This past Friday, I attended an event featuring presidential candidate John Edwards. It wasn't a fundraiser. It was a homey speech/Q&A thrown by the Palisades Democratic Club at an upscale hotel in Santa Monica. It was equally lavish as the feted fundraiser I attended recently for Barack Obama, but cost substantially less, just $20 per person to cover the price of the room, filled to capacity with Progressives deciding on 2008.

Good luck. I can't believe it took this long for people to finally flip out because over the last couple of years, we frequent flyers have become so accustomed to being treated like fleshy baggage, some of us have spontaneously sprouted handles.

In fact, Governor Rod Blagojevich has even looked at selling the Illinois lottery to pay for basic education, transportation, health care, and for pensions for public employees.
