1. Has anyone seen the story that John McCain has missed more Senate votes than either Obama or Clinton? And if not, why not?
2. Did anyone see the story (thanks Paul) about the death of bees getting worse but no one funding the research to find out why and what to do about it (Haagen Daas just gave 250,000 dollars and it was greeted as if it were several million, does the money we’re bleeding into Iraq have anything to do with why our government isn’t funding the research to find out what’s happening to these bees without which our food supply will get even more expensive and many items will disappear with the bees forever)?
3.Anyone notice that in the current violence (mini-civil war?) between Shiite factions in Iraq (Basra and Baghdad, Iraq’s two biggest cities) the “bad” guys have new expensive weapons and the guys we back have old ones and none of the personal armor or armored vehicles they’ve been asking for since we set up the Iraqi security forces, so does that mean Iran and other suppliers are more efficient and less corrupt than we are, and if so why not get out then, especially since our argument is if we leave what’s happening now, i.e. factions fighting each other, will happen, if it’s happening anyway?
