• Frivolous lawsuits?
Oh, Dennis, have you ever voted to prevent frivolous lawsuits?
Dennis Kucinich is suing the owner of the House of Representatives’ cafeteria. The congressman and one time presidential hopeful, had a sandwich with what was advertised as pitted olives. Well, one of the olives still had a pit much to the surprise of Kucinich. He is suing for $150,000 in damages.
Don’t the members of congress have a great dental plan?
• Parents need to protect their children
It is important to stop the abusers. It is also important to stop the enablers. The woman in this case needs to go to jail.
A woman, who is not indentified to protect the victims, pleaded guilty to charges of child endangerment and hindering prosecution. Her husband fathered four babies with one of the couples' daughters. If the wife had gone to authorities right away, she could have protect her daughter.
If the father is an abuser, the mother should at least be the defender.

• Drunk driving in Tennessee
It is very important to get the drunks off the roads forever, but government can’t put someone in jail for an undetermined amount of time. Let’s find another solution. How about in jail for ten years on second time around?
In Tennessee they want to put people that are charged with DUI that have been convicted before behind bars. But, they will be there for as long as a judge believes they are still a danger to the community. The punishment is much to arbitrary.
• Those money grapping politicians! They will do anything for a buck.
Seems that the Hawaiian legislature is going to allowing anyone that will pay $100 to purchase an official copy of President Obama’s birth certificate. While it won’t shut the birthers up, it will raise some money.
