Power Of The People

There are politicians who blame talk radio for the immigration bill being shot down. Hey, if talk radio gets people involved in their government, more power to it. There are too many legislators who do as they damn well please, instead of representing the will of their constituency. It's good to see them being held accountable for their actions.

Polls have consistently shown that nearly eighty percent of Americans were against the immigration bill, so it looks like many lawmakers are going to have a lot of explaining to do when they get back home! What part of representing us didn't you understand?

People being involved in the governmental process. Funny thing, that's exactly what democracy is supposed to be about. If this keeps up, sometime soon the founders of our nation may be able to stop spinning in their graves. Oh yeah, we'll need to trash that tax code behemoth first.

The Bear Facts

The streak continues. We've seen at least one bear each of the three summers we've been up here at the Knob. Dee saw three one evening this past week. I saw two this week and managed to get a picture of one, albeit of very poor quality. In fact I had to use photo editing tools to bring out the image enough just to see it. Perhaps I will post that picture later.

Unfortunately, the bears didn't wait long enough for me to learn how to use the digital camera we bought recently. Actually it is our second digital camera, as we used to have one that came to us as part of an EarthLink promotion. That one must have been built by Etch-a-Sketch, because it took pictures that were barely a facsimile of the real thing.

Gotta go...Dee just yelled, "The bear's in the backyard!"
