Halliburton on Georgia Women VOTE! ???

Someone suggested an open thread, so here you go. Have at it. Keep it clean, keep it honest. Discuss what you want. Here's some food for thought:

Today, I noticed that someone with an ISP at Halliburton in Houston accessed the blog. It's just one of those things that makes you go hmmmm.....

And while the right-wing media tries to distract the nation with the McKinney story, President Bush once again uses the "I know what's best for you" excuse to justify his authorization of the intelligence leak. His actions may not be criminal but certainly unethical....

What would Ralph Reed's Georgia look like?

Dive in.

Hey thanks Amy.

How cool that Edwards is stomping down here. I heard that the focus groups don't like him. Rich lawyer, too slick. This from a public that fell for President "Texas Souffle" who's never made a living in the private sector in his life unless you count making a bunch of money selling something someone else gave you the money to buy.

But just this morning on a Georgia WGPB talk show I heard the out-going chairman of Georgia Pacific tell the host that plaintiff's attorneys were the richest people in the world. And the host didn't blink. So this meme has been spun for a long time now. Tort Reform! Off with his head!

I was just wondering about Sam Nunn the other day. This India nuke deal and all. Is he too old to be Prez? Why isn't he on the talk shows I wonder. Used to see him fairly often.

Jeesh. I'm still up. Been revisiting Mid East blogs I'd missed for awhile after seeing Seymour Hersh's piece in the New Yorker about the war planning for Iran.
Tax deadline looms and my stuff's a mess. I shall return anon. But not too anon. It's panic time.

As a NC native, I have to love John Edwards. I have great respect for his consistent stance on poverty- in a county of this wealth, it's simply not acceptable.

Looks like John Edwards is going to make the run---and I am all for it. As for attorneys being the richest people in the world, welll...I come from a family full of lawyers and haven't seen them to be counting dollars any faster than other professionals (except of course those of us who neglected our daddies' advice and became underpaid schoolteachers.) The ones who seem to be making biggest bucks of all are corporate CEOs. As for Edwards, I have no objection to his being wealthy and charming. In fact, some regard both attributes as positive assets ! :-)
