It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures. This bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus." -- Sen. Clinton on a Bill that would make helping illegal immigrants a crime.
I guess her "understanding" of the Scriptures allowed her to dismiss the part about "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery", thus her reasoning for staying with her longtime philandering husband.
Oh, the irony!

He's reportedly cheated on all of his wives. Dated porn stars. Slept with hookers and battled a serious cocaine addiction. In other words, he makes for the perfect Hollywood liberal to garner quotes from on issues dealing with morality, 9/11 and of course, George W. Bush.
Speaking to The Alex Jones Show on the GCN Radio Network, the star of current hit comedy show Two and a Half Men and dozens of movies including Platoon and Young Guns, Sheen elaborated on why he had problems believing the government's version of events.
Sheen agreed that the biggest conspiracy theory was put out by the government itself and prefaced his argument by quoting Theodore Roosevelt in stating, "That we are to stand by the President right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
"We're not the conspiracy theorists on this particular issue," said Sheen.
"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."
Sheen described the climate of acceptance for serious discussion about 9/11 as being far more fertile than it was a couple of years ago.
"It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles, it seems like the worm is turning."
Yunno, maybe the FDA needs to seriously look into making Bush Derangement Syndrome official so we can start prescribing pills for these Leftist lunatics.
Besides that I find it interesting that Hollywood celebrities continue to get away with portraying themselves as scholars on politics (along with the media's refusal to point out these celebs blatant hypocrisies when they point fingers and judge others). Celebrity or non-celebrity, why should an actor's opinion on political matters be taken any more seriously than the average Joe walking down the street? Especially a man like Charlie Sheen, whose credibility on world matters should be taken as seriously as Barney the Purple Dinosaur. I'm sure the media can find better things to waste our time about.

Group Pushes Electoral College Reform
A group called FairVote has launched a campaign to reform the Electoral College system, saying presidential election results should rely on the nationwide popular vote rather than the outcome in a handful of swing states.
The group’s plan would also eliminate the possibility of a candidate winning the popular vote but losing the election.
In 2000, Al Gore won the popular vote by about 500,000 ballots, but lost the election in the Electoral College after George Bush narrowly won the popular vote in Florida and all of its 25 electoral votes.
In 2004, President Bush won the popular vote by 3 million ballots, but would have lost the election if John Kerry had carried Ohio.
Previous attempts to change the Electoral College by amending the Constitution have failed in Congress, so FairVote and its allies in the National Popular Vote campaign seek to change laws through individual state legislatures.
Proponents want to persuade legislatures in states representing at least 270 electoral votes – the number needed to win the presidency – to pass laws requiring those states to give all of their electoral votes to whichever presidential ticket wins a majority of the national popular vote.
The U.S. Constitution leaves it up to the states to choose how they allocate their votes.
I don't buy this being a non-partisan measure. After all, when Bill Clinton won both of his presidential elections, he never owned a majority of the popular vote. Yet, despite that fact, little to no noise was made by anyone about changing the Electoral College. Now after all the noise they made after the '00 presidential elections due to their often deranged belief in conspiracy theories, liberals are still trying to betray the public's trust by making it sound like they're so concerned about the popular vote. Thank God it'll never happen because most members of Congress are not liberals.
The Electoral College works because it gives smaller states like Rhode Island more of a say in what happens during Presidential elections. It works as a compromise of the popular vote in conjunction with the rights of states. Otherwise states with more people could always bully a smaller state and people in smaller states would not receive equal representation. In other words, the forefathers knew what they were doing and the system as it is works just fine.
Don't believe the hype.
