Terrorists are not the only threat to public safety. Lax enforcement policies, judges who legislate from the bench and lack of support for law enforcement personnel all continue to force our innocent citizens behind the barred windows of their homes and allow criminals to roam free.emphasis added above. we have record high incarceration rates (and low crime rates). criminals are not all just roaming free. we have judges who hold criminals accountable.
... Senator Obama would appoint liberal activist judges and supply them with greater sentencing discretion. I will appoint judges who will strictly interpret our Constitution. Senator Obama's judges would coddle criminals. I will appoint judges who will hold criminals accountable.
obama soft on crime? i don't think so.
If Obama and Biden are soft on crime, can you imagine the reactionary, repressive policies McCain would create? McCain, who even bailed on his signature issue, torture.as always said, we should be smart about crime policy, not just tough.
it may be longer than you think.

dog saves kittens from fire
the 7-11 election, via the cups, puts obama at 60%, mccain at 40%. in VA, mccain's got ony 38%. maybe republicans don't drink coffee? or they don't visit 7-11? i went last week for coffee and there were none of these specialty cups available.
an owl on a tree branch.
halloween fun facts.
i hope no one falls for this:
A phony State Board of Elections flier advising Republicans to vote on Nov. 4 and Democrats on Nov. 5 is being circulated in several Hampton Roads localities, according to state elections officials.it is official-looking with the seals from the board of elections, but also wrought with typos. whoever created this flier should be ashamed of themselves, for that alone.

the way i see it as people should have their minds made up before hitting the polls.
i envision that these rules could then be stretched to ban other types of dress from voting places (i.e. baggy pants). see how trouble could ensue?

heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg.
