I have been a voting dem, liberal minded person for most of my life, but my views are more educated now. Thank you for reporting on reality. And I will continue to make all of my purchases through you!! And now that I am back to work, I will even be able to make some full donations soon...

It's been four years now since President Bush pulled his stunt of landing on the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, which his staff had ordered to circle around outside of San Diego, and which they had decked out a huge banner proclaiming "Mission Accomplished" for a backdrop.
