    Thanks for that, Wom.. I see you have the same kinds of things going on in Australia as we have here.

    Government reminds me of The Three Stooges. Wish we could bop their heads together.

    Well yeah. Every now and again the Idiot Party gets elected.
    All of the usual backstabbing and "What kind of grass will we put a ban on mowing this year because trimming it is bad for the environment and is destroying the planet" discussions are the all that goes on in Parliament House.
    But that's ok.....The South shall Rise Again.

    Being in the Government is proof that someone has already bashed them senseless.

    The Three Stooges were acting....in the case of Government it's incompetence, occasionally willful incompetence.

    Interesting Political Poll question. I wonder if Congress cares how we feel?

    Quick vote

    Should members of Congress get a pay cut as part of efforts to cut the federal deficit?


    Yes 94% 329432
    No 6% 20444

    Total votes: 349876

    This is not a scientific poll

    No. I think we should double their pay.
    And tomorrow, sack them.

    No, it's not just you. I didn't like the attacks on the Democrats, but it does show a lack of respect and lack of class on the part of the White House or Congressional staff that organized the medal ceremony.

    There is too much politics in this country these days and not just with the politicians. Sometimes I really fear for my country.

    It surprises me that anyone would take this at face value. By this time -- more than a year later -- there is more than enough proof that the people on the front two rows were SSgt. Giunta's family, previous Medal of Honor recipients and Secretary of Defense Gates. Didn't you think there was something wrong when the youtube video didn't show anything from the actual ceremony?

    Perhaps you need a new pair of glasses, wom. FYI, all the recent MOH ceremonies have been live on TV here in the States - for anyone interested to view.

    I've seen them all, live and in HD. Very impressive with the other MOH recipients, and family members, present.

    I saw the whole ceremony & felt that the focus was strictly on SSgt. Giunta & what he had done. He was very modest about the whole thing & would of rather saw his friends alive then receiving the medal. Pulling his friend out of there was for good reason as you saw on the U Tube the taliban mutilate their captures. SSgt. Giunta's buddies were also on camera, along with his family. The camera panned everyone involved.
