I find that, although Walt Monegan's refusal to fire Trooper Michael Wooten was not the sole reason he was fired by Governor Sarah Palin, it was likely a contributing factor to his termination as Commissioner of Public Safety. In spite of that, Governor Palin's firing of Commissioner Monegan was a proper and lawful exercise of her constitutional and statutory authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads.

Obama fans jammed WGN's phone lines and sent in hundreds of protest e-mails. The message was clear to anyone who would follow Mr. Rosenberg's example. We will make trouble for you if you let anyone make the case against The One.
Other Obama supporters have threatened critics with criminal prosecution. In September, St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch and St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce warned citizens that they would bring criminal libel prosecutions against anyone who made statements against Mr. Obama that were "false." I had been under the impression that the Alien and Sedition Acts had gone out of existence in 1801-'02. Not so, apparently, in metropolitan St. Louis. Similarly, the Obama campaign called for a criminal investigation of the American Issues Project when it ran ads highlighting Mr. Obama's ties to Mr. Ayers.
Is there anything more sacred in a free society than the secret ballot? Apparently not for the Obamites.Then there's the Democrats' "card check" legislation that would abolish secret ballot elections in determining whether employees are represented by unions. The unions' strategy is obvious: Send a few thugs over to employees' homes - we know where you live - and get them to sign cards that will trigger a union victory without giving employers a chance to be heard.
Just like you were ignorant of Obama's proposal to give 95% of the people tax cuts, even though only 65% of them pay taxes, you are ignorant of the fact that the swift boat claims were true. Kerry lied about his service. He was not in Cambodia on Christmas Eve. He did say his fellow soldier acted like Ghengis Khan. They did not lie. You just bought the Democratic lies hook, line, and sinker like you are doing now.dudejcb wrote:We all watched the swiftboaters last time around.
I agree with Al Gore. Anybody that approves of a furlough program that allows murders to walk out of jail is unfit to be dog catcher and definitely not President. What is your probablem with the Willie Horton issue? Again this was 100% true.dudejcb wrote:And some of us rmeber Willie Horton

That's where my job is. The only saving grace is I live outside Chicago and Cook County. It crosses my mind very often. I have a very good job that I like, I live in an area I like, and I make enough money that all the excess taxes and regulations do not harm me like someone making far less money. I've finally settled down and I really don't want to move. However, it's always in the back of my mind. I'm contemplating looking into jobs in North Carolina. I just have a really good job and it's hard to find something equivalent. I belong to a duck club that is 10 minutes from my house. Gander Mountain is literally the closest store to my house. I can fish for everything from salmon and steelhead to flying silver carp and virtually everything between. I'd have to give up a ton of things that would be hard to find somewhere else, but I think about it a lot.dudejcb wrote:I don't know why you continue to live in Chicago.
I could probably go to Idaho Falls in a heart beat. Of course, my wife would divorce me before I left the state. Some days that doesn't sound so bad I've lived out west. I liked Richland, WA. Didn't care for Los Alamos, NM.dudejcb wrote:Come on out west. No pro teams in Idaho, but we do have television and sports bars (in Boise anyway).
I'm glad that Obama has done so many interviews lately...oh wait he hasn't, and why would he i mean he can just buy up every time slot and doesn't actually have to answer questions. Well that and when he does do any sort of talking without a teleprompter he has that small problem of telling the truth and then his poll numbers go down as you can tell from whats going on right nowPacific Fisher wrote:There is another investigation report coming out soon by the committee that Palin and the Republicans wanted to do the investigation on abuse of power.
I predict it will also find that Palin abused her power as Governor.
Palin looks right in the camera and says the first report does not say that which is a lie.
Palin continues to be shielded from answering any questions from the press. So much for the pledge an open and transparent administration from McCain.
