Yep. Yet the Gpovernment keeps telling us that it needs to "create more jobs." Just stay out of the way, and the jobs will be created.
Instead of just trashing the mailings, I write "Return to Sender, Unsolicited" on the envelop and drop it back in the mail. It is my hope that AARP might have to pay twice for the same propaganda.
I tried to get some basic information from the site, but it is required that one sign up for an account (and reply to the e-mail message confirming one's data) before any plan options can be seen. I had used a nom de plume just in case, so I decided to drop out at that point. (I suppose the Dems may still count my visit as a sign of endorsement rather than a sign of curiosity though ...)

"They [the House and the Senate] need to pass the 13 appropriations bills like they’re supposed to, negotiate their differences in conference committees and then do the job they were elected to do -- pass the darn legislation." As the House has passed funding bills that the Senate refuses to consider, and the House has formed a Conference Committee that the Senate refuses to match, just who are you referring to, exactly, Mr. Reagan? Do you really believe that the problem is 50-50? I don't.
Thanks, Jeffrey; that is a story that will NOT be featured ny the MSM during Black History Month! Here is a link for more for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Johnson_(colonist)
To paraphrase the N.Y.T. editorial, but more accurately, 'The coverage of Howard Beach (and other incidents) shows that the politics of prejudice may have some vile life left in it yet.' This "politics of prejudice" is alive and well on the Left, and I fear it is creating a welling backlash that will harm our nation.

The "Filthy Filner" Cover-Up

Since Filner was a Member of Congress for 10 terms prior to becoming Mayor of San Diego, perhaps the city could pass the costs along to Congress for also failing to teach poor Filner what most of us learned at home...
Perhaps the administrators are only determined to demonstrate to the prepared student that affirmative action students will often fail to perform. Nah...
It is sad that, whether determined they know better or determined to redress some perceived societal ill, Academia permits (encourages -?) these practices, which can have such an impact on the lives of those students who "played by the rules" only to find that the rules were circumvented by the administrators.

Lynn, I suppose the Old Boys' Club might change a bit if the New Girls' Club would consistently demand accountability for bad behavior, be the offender Republican or Democrat. Watching how the Leftists closed ranks around Democrat offenders cannot provide much hope for meaningful change in the near future.

If al-Qaeda is indeed "on the run," why are we the ones hiding under the desk with the lights out?
