Random Rants

OK, it's been a few days since I posted my thoughts on the Secret Service scandal but I've heard another take on this that is so bad I have to share.  Maybe you heard it too.  I swear my nine( soon to be 10 ) and 11 year old grandsons come up with far more believable stories to rescue their butts when they get in trouble.

I did get a Fox News update in my email that these men have lost their Top Secret Clearance status.  My husband has that clearance in order to do his job at the Marine Air Base.  It is no small thing.  Your entire life and family background is checked to get it.  So, I say "Good" and what they did, as representatives of my country is an embarrassemnt.

But the thing that I thought was pitiful was that some are claiming they never slept with these "ladies" because by the time they got to the hotel these guys were so drunk they had passed out.  Okay then..... silly me.  No!  You do not receive a "Get Out of Jail" card because you were too drunk to go through with your intentions.   If my teenager came home with that story, I don't think they would have been less grounded because they were too drunk. 


Living here in North Carolina even our local news is covering the John Edwards trial.  Politicians...what can ya do?  I do believe the truth lies closer to Andrew Young than towards John Edwards.  From interviews and in reading Mr. Young's book, The Politician,  John promised to take care him if he "went along" with the plan.  Basically, it's all slight of hand, razzle dazzle, I believe. 

Here we are in the midst of another election year.  I voted as soon as I could at 21 and have voted in every National election since  Am I disheartened? Sure but I feel it is my duty to vote.  On my shoulder, though, is stting a little imp that sings in my ear:

They are all sleaze...

I stopped voting when I stopped getting anything better than the choice between "the lesser of two evils"...

We don't really have a Democracy anyway... as long as they have perks for "Senority" in Congress - our votes aren't equal.

Should've definitely lost more than their top secret clearances. That's a shame!

It seems there is no such thing as accountability.
It's so hard to know who and what to believe on all political issues since the "spin machine" is well oiled. I enjoyed reading your thoughts.

When someone is in a position to represent the country, they are held to a high standard. They failed miserably. The whole lot of them.

By the way.. I love Fleetwood Mac!

It is sad that LUST is the downfall of so many men, politicians included. And it is also sad that so many women allow themselves to be treated as sex objects and nothing more.

I was so disgusted when I first heard this news story. Now I'm wondering if there's not "something fishy" going on with all of this. It makes no sense, to me, that these men would risk their lucrative jobs and marriages for the sake of a few hookers...I think there's more to the story than we know--perhaps it was a "set up"???
