Boy I found this report by Lisa Ling really disturbing, and sadly it is sure a sign of these times we are in.

Yup, and other things         that is how I found this.  I find it all kinda sad as I bought an Obama bobble-head too.  Son of a gun I guess they are all a bit shady and that seems to be a requirement to get that far up almost every political ladder. Shucks.  I see lots to read that is for sure, and loved the line on this one..."By their fruit ye shall know them."  Something tells me there are sure a lot of nut trees Michael. Here is one I found interesting.  However, I have to tell you I still have to read a lot more to change my mind.  One looks as bad as the other now, so at least they are equal.

One simply has to decide which will do the least damage to the country. A sad state....

Sad state actually, and Michael, Todd found this online from a dear old friend of mine, who obviously thinks as I do.

So there is all kinds of mud slinging on both sides, so Susan is right in her suggestion I am am afraid.

This is so sad and I found myself crying. The part of the trash man finding a little girl's doll was gut wrenching!

How did we get to this mess?
