The World Can't Wait, Won't Wait, Isn't Waiting-Cynthia McKinney Speech
One way for the American people to demand accountability from their leaders and a return to respectability is to impeach the Bush Administration. However, the complicity of both major U.S. parties in this intensifying debacle is clear now that the Democrats have taken impeachment "off the table." And if the Democratic Congress, that owes its majority status to antiwar voters, votes to fund the war, then our mission will become very clear.

'Boys to Men' or Boys to Boys?
Physically grown men, especially fathers, who dress, talk, and act like teenagers and even younger boys, are misguided at best. Check them out as they walk along with their sons; both have their caps turned to the side, both are wearing those short pants, which remind me of the little boy with the snotty nose that Martin Lawrence used to portray, and they wear the obligatory basketball or football jersey. If it were not for their physical size, you wouldn’t be able to tell father from son.

Water firms use the less expensive chlorine while healthier alternatives like ozone gas or ultraviolet light are available.
