    'Thou shalt not steal.'
    'Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods.'
    'Thou shalt not bear false witness.'
    'Thou shalt not kill.'
    Apparently all we have are 'bunglers' in office -- except they aren't bungling anything, they are mobsters.

    Eighty seven percent of the people who demanded that the whole bail out bill should be crushed never said that we just wanted to have the pot sweetened, we said do not pass it. So here we are, devastated and naked again. When you have nothing, you have nothing to loose. What will it take for the people to assert their rightful position as the owners of this once great nation. Remember this one: "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, so as to purchased at the price of chains and slavery, forbid it almighty God, I know not what other men may choose, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death." Have these words ever rung more true, or necessary?

    The ends never justify the means. Only moral action can result in moral good. Evil actions will ultimately breed evil results because evil actions corrupts men's souls and becomes habitual and to them evil becomes always necessary.
