Apparently, only good intentions and a city charter are all one needs to qualify as Robin Hood for the Economic Development fanatics. No past evidence of failure need be taken into consideration and the quality of the calculations of benefit versus cost are beyond criticism when jobs and prosperity are promised by city officials or their hired guns with questionable computer simulations of cornucopia construction.p>If the Constitution does not mean what it says in a durable way, who will fight for it? Who will consider it much more than a party platform? Can anyone rewrite the Fifth Amendment in a more clear way to prevent the Supreme Court from finding what ever it pleases in the words? br> — Danny L. Newton br> Cookeville, Tennessee /p> p> Well, the evisceration of the concept of private property is now complete. No longer do we own our own homes, farms, or any other real property. We are merely allowed by our all knowing liberal masters to hold it until they find someone else willing to pay more for it. This is the sad legacy of feckless conservatives and a complacent public ignoring the threat posed by liberal democrats. It is also a perfect example of why the judicial nomination process is so important. Only an unelected group of liberal judges could read a document designed solely to limit government power and find absolutely no limit on government power. Without private property there is no freedom in this country. How much longer will we let this continue? br> — Bill White

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
