Are you comfortable using it, seeing as how it was originally financed by the US government and all?

We hear all the”life time stories” of minorities who against all odds have progressed into careers that have been considered to be outside the normal expectations of the deprived minorities. Unless of of course if that excludes attorney general Gonzalez and supreme court justice Thomas,who are castigated because they do not follow the leanings of the mainstream press and progressive ideology that they and the democratic party follow. If the obama,s socialist experiment fails it will have a catastrophic impact on the fortunes of the democratic party ,but i hope also some blame ,which there will be plenty to go around ,falls on the compliant press,who have capitulated their reputations and integrity when they comply with this double standard.

I’m going to have to agree with Gonzalez, not to mention agree with well over two centuries’ worth of traditional understanding of the Attorney General’s role in law enforcement in our country.

This particular attorney general — a blank slate and lapdog mercifully now employed by the only people willing to offer him a job2. All those supposedly exonerating investigations into Bush Admin wrong-doing by the “Department of Justice” (that’s the “Department of Law” for the Palinites in the audience)3. That, in their view, as the chief law-enforcer, the executive branch is wholly above the law because it will simple refuse to investigate any wrong-doingDon’t forget that many other apolitical, career roles were filled with people we can now pretty safely assume are similar political ideologues. And they are still with us, crawling throughout our government, undermining our consensus laws as we speak…
