News Clip


WASHINGTON - Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican senator and a figure in Alaska politics since before statehood, has been indicted on seven counts of making false statements.


So... Bill lies about head, impeached. This guy lies about stuff that got him a house remolded by the oil companies and... we will see what happens.

And he said drilling for oil in Alaska was the devil. Well, he blocked a bill that would FORCE the oil companies to drill in Alaska that the Dems tried to pass but the GOP blocked.

And no one else? Really? A serving Senator is in this much trouble and nothing?

Oh and thanks to the person who moved this. I thought I had it in the right place since this is news. But this really does seem to fit better under People and Politicians.

So what's next? I can't wait to see!

I don't know the back story to this, but to be honest... I do get a little smile on my face when I see a politician get busted.

Then my conspiracy senses start to tingle..... This guy has been dirty for a while, so who did he make mad?

Every time a Democrat or a Republican gets caught doing what it is they do best it warms my heart. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. This coin is presented to you by charlatans who remain behind the scenes to make you think you have a choice. The choice has already been made, but not by you. Do not vote any more criminals into office. THE FOUNDING FATHERS CERTAINLY DID NOT INTEND FOR PUBLIC SERVICE TO BE A LIFELONG GRAVY TRAIN. There is a good reason that politicians serve for a specific amount of time. The founding fathers intended for citizen statesmen to give up a short time away from their businesses and families to devote time to help out the country. They did not intend for professional politicians to hitch a lifelong ride on the government gravy train.

Except the Dems don't scream on National TV every day that they are the "Moral Majority more holier than holy."

The Reps scream that they are the ones who uphold the values we all should follow. You know, picking up strange men in bathrooms, molesting children, recieving bribes from oil companies, good wholesome family values.
