I agree about the Lakes they are so very important. I camp in the North woods yearly and watch as the lakes up there literally die. That bothers me tremendously – the lakes that are now dead, died from damage from more than the past three years, it has been decades (includes the President Clinton years).

The lakes are struggling from decades and even centuries of lack of care. Over the past few decades, some great strides have been made in restoring the areas most in danger of falling beyond capability of being restored and preserving the rest. During that time, Bush was the first President, Republican or Democrat, to put a halt to the federal support of these efforts. This isn’t about politics, it’s about Bush as an individual showing a lack of concern for a fading resource that all other recent Presidents, including his father and Reagan, thought was worth funding restoration efforts.

Why did the Siera club not protest the multi-billion gallon dumping? They protest companies that pollute – even if those companies make attempts to correct problems. But no protest ever came at MMSD – explain this please.

Maybe you missed it but I saw some very strong words from the Sierra Club against MMSD.

Also, if you missed it in the news the MMSD people forged testing documents related to all of the dumpings this past year – to make them seem “not so dirty”.

And everyone involved was a liberal, right?

Also the CBS documents are recent forgeries and not from 30 years ago – the slanderous story based on forged documents occured very recently.

And the SBVT lies were recent lies and not from 30 years ago. The press dropped that story as soon as it was shown to be a lie. The CBS story will seemingly never end, though.

I swear that if the President Bush camp created fake documents on Senator Kerry the liberals would be asking for an impeachment. Do not deny that.

If we want to talk about asking for impeachment, let’s talk about the Republicans looking to impeach Clinton for having an affair but no talks at all of impeaching Reagan for breaking U.S. and international laws. By the way, there is more evidence that the Bush camp was involved with SBVT than there is that the Kerry camp was involved with the CBS story.

I do agree that both sides are right and both sides are wrong. Right now I think that both sides are more wrong than right.

No question there.

Consider this – one of the worst cities in terms of economic recovery is Milwaukee – Democrats have controlled the City for decades. Democrats keep taxing the rich (because they have money) and voila jobs and people are fleeing the city. Wisconsin is one of the most heavily taxed states and lags the National average in jobs coming back and other aspects of economic recovery. Wisconsin is controlled by a Democrat Govenor.

Wisconsin was one of the most heavily taxed states before Doyle took office. Who was in control before Doyle? Oh yeah, for over a decade it was a Republican who happens to be serving in Bush’s Cabinet now. If you want to look for people to fault for Wisconsin’s tax burden, start with none other than Tommy Thompson. While I believe Doyle has more than his share of faults, don’t blame him for Wisconsin’s tax burden when that was established long before he had any control over it.

BTW have you noticed Senator Kerry’s new position on Sadam? In January 2004 Senator Kerry told Senator Dean that any one who says Sadam should not be taken out of power and the war was wrong was not fit to lead this Country. Yesterday Senator Kerry stated that if he was in power Sadam would not have been taken into captivity. Does this mean that by his own words he is not fit to lead? Or should Senator Dean challenge Senator Kerry again for the Demcratic Nomination?

By the way, have you noticed how the story on Saddam has changed? Back in January, Bush “knew” Saddam had stockpiles of WMDs. Now, we know he didn’t have stockpiles or the ability to make stockpiles. We know he had the intent, though. I wonder how many others have the intent.
