    And the road to nowhere isn't paved at all. So what.

    You can make up some little nonsense saying to apply to just about anything. The above article aptly pointed out the uselessness and flaws in AA. Just another reason to oblish it. It's blatantly racist, and now sexist.

    What Lott doesn't have the balls to say is that most of the violent firearm crime is committed by blacks. We don't need to ban guns. We need to separate the races.

    Good intentions dont create bad laws if people think think through the process before they pass laws. Alot of the liberals wants to pass this law or repeal that law but they dont stop to think why the laws are that way before. They dont think through the process. id say alot of the republicans are just as bad. Lets ask ourselves why did our forefathers establish the laws they did before we decide to change everything?

    I'd say that our forefathers were well grounded in certain philosophies and belief systems. These were well thought out, way before the revolutionary war.

    Now we have a GOP congress coming up with a special law for a person, the weekend after a judge orders the feeding tube removed. I fail to see a connection between our current lawmakers and those that drafted the constitution.

    I agree the law was poorly drafted. Stupid Democrats. We could have nipped this entirely in the budd but we had to compromise with the Democrats to have it only apply to one person. I don't know what they were thinking.

    And you are right. Our current law makers are nothing like our founders. So maybe we need to become more like our founders and run ourselves.
