Something To Say-World

Something to Say-World blog is a forum where I can vent and share my strong viewpoints with the world, and get feedback from others, whether they are pro or con, for or against my positions. The main thing is that we engage in a thought provoking discussion with hopes of seeing the world in a more clearer and different light than we did before initiating our intellectual dialogues. __________ MOTTO:Committed To Relentless Pursuit Of Hidden Truths -Globally-

Again, I cannot understand for the life of me why the news media continues to report the lunatic pronouncements coming from the ungodly mouth of the Rev. Pat Robertson. He recently stated: Ariel Sharon (prime Minster of Israel)invited "God's enmity" by "dividing God's land." He continued by saying that "Mr Sharon's stroke could be God's punishment for giving up Israeli territory." And that God's message is, "This land belongs to me. You'd better leave it along." I wonder what was God saying to the Rev. back in 1947 before Israel was founded? And of course as usual, the White House came out publicly denouncing his insane, rediculous and extreme statements.It is obvious censorship doesn't affect the Rev.,just look at his record. I firmly believe the Rev. should be totally ignored, if not completed shunned, especially when he calls for the assasination of a democratically elected leader, i.e. President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. I suppose it was God speaking to him through "divine intervention" when he suggested that such extreme and illegal action be taken by the CIA. Too much recognition is being given to a person who is no longer worthy of such recognition, respect or notariety. The Rev.,simply,is not speaking as a sensible and responsible leader that his position commands of him. The sooner the news media and politicians realize and acknowledge that Rev. Robertson is no longer worthy of reporting on and responding to, respectively,the better off we all will be as a humane peoples and as a great nation. GOD BLESS THE UNTED STATES OF AMERICA!

I feel vindicated and justified in writing my Wednesday, December 21, 2005 posted letter, FED UP!,to certain members of the Illinois delegation. No doubt the Jack Abramoff case is indicative of the frustration I was expressing with both political parties. Mr Abramhoff,a wheeler and dealer, prominent and influencial lobbyist on the Washington scene, has caused a calamity on Capital Hill that some say is, perhaps,unprecedented since the Tea Pot Dome scandalof the 1920s. The fallout is massive and can only get worst, in that he admits giving trips and cash in exchange for "series of official acts." Abramhoff's corrupt and influence buying tentacles could bring down as many as sixty Washington lawmakers. And again, as reported by the Chicago Sun-Times, members from both the republican and democratic parties, respectively, are on his exposure list.

My understanding is that Senator Durbin of Illinois received around $6,000.00 in campaign contributions from Mr Abramhoff. Since Mr Abramhoff's guilty plea in a Washington D.C. court on January 3rd, supposedly, Senator Durbin has returned the money or donated it to charity(?). Among other legislators who have suddenly found their conscious,is House Speaker Dennis Hastert(R-IL)who collected some $100,000.00 from Abramhoff's firm and American Indians' tribal clients, will donate the money to charity.

I will not attempt to recapitulate the entire Abramhoff case here in this writing because the news media and other blogs will do an adequate job in providing sufficient coverage for all to make up his or her own mind and to further scratch their head in dismay, and ponder. I will close, however, simply by saying that my aforementioned letter to the Illinois delegation is a perfect model for one to use as a reference to further demonstrate the expressed cynicism, discuss and frustration that currently pervade the public all across the U.S. I say to every lawmaker at all levels of governments, and in both major parties,in particular: The peoples of these United States of America are "FED UP" with being sold out. We deserve and demand better!
