I am one of these “poor” Americans, retired and living on $1,000 a month. I own my home and acreage, Dodge truck, DishNetwork, DVR, DVD, washer, dryer, 2 color TV’s, microwave and spend my spare money on rehabbing squirrels to release. The only thing I get from the government is a small SS check. Oh and I do have health insurance, not Medicare.p>The welfare system keeps paying moms to stay home and have more babies so they can get a raise in their checks, which just makes more welfare moms that start while they are still kids themselves.

Being poor in America beats the hell out of being rich in a lot of countries. No wonder the left hates America — the mere existence of America puts the lie to every idea they have ever had. Keep up the good work. br> — Christopher Holland br> Canberra, Australia /p> p> Thanks to two centuries of wealth creation by U. S. economy (fastest growth rate on the planet) welfare people on these shores today have higher standards of living than kings enjoyed 200 years ago. Unfortunately for the Democrat Party (John Edwards in particular), more than half of our electorate is irrevocably aware of this. br> — Ty Knoy br> Ann Arbor, Michigan

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
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?
