    Why is the material the FBI keeping from TWA 800 still under wraps and when will the analysis of said evidence become public? I don't want to join the ranks of the conspiracy theorists just yet, but I can believe a newbie in the navy failed to disengage a missile fired from an automatic system until it was too late, and the near enough explosion damaged the airliner. I am the truthman, and I need to follow the truth where ever.

    I guess if some of the airline hull material is scorched on the outside it might be indicative of an external explosion, huh? Why is the FBI keeping some of the material... never mind. The FBI would never do something so heinous. What am I thinking?

    Why are we, according to The Washington Post, giving foreign aid to China when we have to borrow the money from them in the first place to give it to them and then they take it and loan the same money to us back and then we send it to them and on and on in perpetuity? Does it make a lot of gov't jobs for people to track these endless transactions? Then, whoopee!, I'm all for it!

    Do the Dems like Erskine Bowles or what? What about Obama? Does Obama like Erskine? Does Erskine like Obama? Does Erskine like the Dems? How come Erskine isn't getting any love? He's the Ron Paul of the left; invisible to all but the camera.

    What percent of the general population want Obamacare and does the majority have much of a say-so and if they do why doesn't the present administration listen?
    And by the way, has the American people ever been polled on what they would like the administration to do about immigration? About strengthening states' rights? About an across the board gov't spending cut? Ten percent gov't salary cut? More access to vocational education? Early magnet schools for the gifted? Volunteer work in exchange for welfare funds?

    Is 48% of the population too much to be on food stamps? Do food stamps entice that 48% to then vote for more gov't spending or at least gov't spending as usual, even though we have to borrow over a third?

    Should votes about certain issues with regards to economic policies, both domestic and abroad, be voted on by taxpayers only and not by those with no skin in the game, like college students and welfare recipients? If they want to change their voting status they would be free to get a job, of course.

      So some special interest group could cause me to have no voice in a national issue like going to war or cutting Social Security by giving me a tax break, and thereby removing my "skin in the game" while reaping the profits?

    Are you able to determine the income level, education level and crime rates in the counties that voted for Bush or Gore in 2004? Will you be able to do it for 2008 and 2012 for Obama and the Republican candidate? You will help squelch an urban legend running around the internet that the dregs of society are voting Democrat.

    Who was the first one to say that once the majority figures out that they can vote in representatives to give themselves rewards then that democracy is doomed? Was it Elmer T. Peterson (9 December 1951). "This is the Hard Core of Freedom". Daily Oklahoman: p. 12A? And did he write in that same article that helping the poor should be voluntary in a true democracy or else it becomes socialism? That would settle another urban myth.

    heard newspaper reporter from Harrisburg on Lehr Newshour on ll/15 say that the conflict regarding McCleary's eyewitness account and talking to police is because people are using the 2 page SUMMARY report from the Grand Jury. His testimony that he disrupted the episode and talked to police is in the complete document. Check it out NOW!

    Where is your anger over Nancy Pelosi earning more than $100,000 on IPO's purchased that were not available to the public? Insider trading within the Congress is more troublesome to me. Or are you only an angry commentator when it involves Republicans? Click...the sound of CNN being switched off.

    I am going out of my mind listening to the TV reports on McQueary. Please please will someone tell them there is a VAST difference between campus police and Township police? If mcQueary was in a meeting regarding this issue and a member of the campus police happened to be there, then he thinks he told the police. If the campus police didn't report it to the Township police – there-in lies the problem. Campus police are not held to the same legal processes as are the Township police. I bet that's why the prosecution requested the delayed the hearing til December

    John King pointed out recently that members of Congress are frequently seen up and down K street where the lobbyists for special interests reside. Why is this not news every day, every time a member of Congress is seen having contact with a lobbyist? Billions of our dollars are moving based on these connections, are they not? What are you covering instead that is more important than these connections? Dancing with the Stars?!?!?
