What was so wrong about this?

Rolly Broadside sinks the Black Pearl

Am I just naive? I thought a Pirate themed fundraiser was a clever idea tying into the new Pirates movie.

No action

My sources tell me that the GOP at the Utah County Convention are going to completely ignore the breaking of the bylaws by Senate President John Valentine. This disappoints me, at least an admission of a mistake made would be helpful.


I can guarantee that had this been an opponent of Mr. Valentine, or the "Bramharts", action would be taken.

I guess the saying is right: "Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely" (An observation that a person’s sense of morality lessens as his or her power increases. The statement was made by Lord Acton, a British historian of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.)

Mitt has a point

If there ever was a question about whether the presidential election is critical, just look at the events of the last few weeks.

Last week, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid came out with a bold, misguided statement. "The war is lost," he said, showing a lack of understanding of the fact that we won by taking out Saddam Hussein in the first phase of this war.

Imagine how different our nation would have been if, when the troops were having a tough time at Valley Forge, George Washington just said, "Well, we've lost." That is not the American way.

I'm afraid there are some Democrats who can't get the word victory or success out of their mouths. They see loss behind every corner, and instead of looking for our successes and our achievements, they are always looking for our losses.
