The competition is less like a competition and more like making sure the choir's song has everyone's part.

That is but one of the problems. That which is being achieved is each freedom in America is either being diminished or eliminated all together.

P.S. Justice is for sale, courts are used to punish or eliminate personal prejudices (no infringement of law necessary) etc. Ghost camps and other retaining facilities deny the most basic of all legal jurisprudence. Those of the legislature are nothing more than depraved social engineers ruling the constitution out of existence; and, for the King's branch, too much to say for this medium.

Dick, Fort Worth

I agree, Mike.

The recent GOP debate in New Hampshire comes to mind -- CNN gave practically no time to Ron Paul who consistently has received the higest ratings -- obviously CNN, Fox and others do not want true debate -- they want THEIR candidates in the race, not one that cannot be bought.
