David Cameron and Elizabeth II are indeed related--descent is from George III. Cameron descends from William IV (George's third son) through William's sixth daughter (Elizabeth, Countess of Errol). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_cameron#Origins Elizabeth II descends from George III through George's fourth son, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_III_of_the_United_Kingdom So they are distant cousins.
You do notice that, when Obama was doing his "victory lap" about the 7 million who allegedly signed up for Obamacare....everyone was praised BUT Sebellius. She won't be left high and dry, though. She was Governor of Kansas at one time, so she's got a pension there. Wonder if she has one from her time as HHS Secretary (she certainly does not have to worry about HER health care, as we will be paying for that).
I don't, either. Amazingly, much of Hollywood falls in with the present admonsteration (yes, I deliberately mis-spelled 'administration'. If the shoe fits,....).
He must have edited it, then--I just read the article, and it mentions Peter Finch.
We had a proposition re: union dues on our state ballot (CA). Had it passed, no more dues pulled from paychecks. The unions came down heavily against it, and it didn't pass. The violence used by the unions is incredible. How many of them will be getting a pass for it?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States#Impeachment_of_a_U.S._President The Chief Justice of the US--and NOT Harry Reid--would preside over an impeachment trial in the case of the President. For all other federal officials, it would be VP Biden presiding. Benjamin Franklin suggested this method of removing the most obnoxious of officials because it was better than the usual method employed by some (assassination).

Gee, I thought we were ALLOWED to express an opinion. Or is tolerance only a one-way street?

GM is owned not by we the people, but by the unions. Look at the latest contract: never mind that the company still owes millions to the government, the workers are getting bonuses. Wonder how much the execs are making. The shareholders got nothing and their former CEO (IIRC) was 'encouraged' to resign. If I have to buy another car, I'd rather NOT have a post-2008 GM car.
