The President Wants 5 minutes of your Time

The President wants about 5 minutes of your time. He has a few million dollars to save and a couple of people to tell you about. These are the new additions to the cabinet. Let's welcome them and hope they get to work

I live in GA, and this past week both Chambliss and Isakson spoke against decreasing defense spending on NPR because McDonnell-Douglas and Boeing have plants here. Their hypocrisy was clear. They were anti-government spending on the stim pak and the omnibus, but extremely vocal on the need for more $ to keep these industries going. The most glaring hypocrisy I see here are the citizens who want massive government spending on defense, but little to none for helping the poor and middle class. About the best thing that has happened here politically this week was Casey Cagle withdrawing from the guv's race due to health problems, but the whole group of potential candidates sucks really bad, but the people keep on voting them into office. Athens, Macon, and Atlanta are the only blue parts of the state. The southern and far northern parts (near the Tennessee-South Carolina border) are blood red. The southern part is rural and the northern part is where the so-called hoity toity brigade live in their gated communities, away from anyone who is different from them. Go figure.
