James Traficant R.I.P. Rush Limbaugh was right. He called former Youngstown, Ohio sheriff turned Democrat Congressman Jim Traficant “A one-in-a-million character.” I’d forgotten this: Jim Traficant played quarterback at Pitt and was a teammate of Mike Ditka. Traficant tried out for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders, also holds two masters degrees. He was an unforgettable guy.
Look what Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan had to put up with - constant abuse from their own party. Establishment Repubs hated both, tried to sabotage both, says Mark Levin - true! Later on Goldwater tried to destroy Reagan’s campaign, but that is another story. Barry wasn’t right mentally in his final years. That was when liberals began to praise him. When Barry was sharp in 1964 liberals hated him, which tells us a lot about liberals.

Retiring Attorney General Eric Holder wasn’t new to Washington, D.C. (District of Corruption). Left-winger Holder previously served as deputy Attorney General under Bill Clinton during Clinton’s second term. Remember when the media left assured us that Clinton was a “moderate” or Southern “conservative” Democrat during the 1992 campaign?

How would you feel if people were constantly throwing trash in your yard? I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t like it one bit.
We should feel the same way about people polluting our county. The majority of the time, it’s our own citizens doing the polluting. If you are one who pollutes, please realize what you’re doing. It doesn’t take much time to dispose of your garbage the proper way, pick up the garbage you see in town or even recycle it if possible. By doing so, you could be saving an animal’s life, making our county look beautiful or even starting your garbage’s journey to a new product if you recycle!
Something we don’t realize is the fact that littering and polluting has a negative effect on animals. Picture a plastic bag, a bottle cap or a Coke can floating down a river or in a pond. All kinds of animals in the river use it as a source of drinking water or to get their prey from it. What if a fish mistook that plastic bag for something that it eats? It’s going to get sick and die. Animals often confuse litter thrown in their environment as food that they usually eat. Sometimes the animals can even get entangled and injure themselves in the garbage people leave behind. That could change if we disposed of our garbage properly instead of polluting the rivers and ponds. [Full Story »]
