None of this is good, but can we stop hearing about all the deaths in Iraq? Should we pull out of Chicago?
Body count. In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago, 221 killed in Iraq.
Sens. Barack Obama & Dick Durbin, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., Gov. Rod Blogojevich, House leader Mike Madigan, Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike), Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J. Daley)…..our leadership in Illinois…..all Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. Of course they’re all blaming each other.
I can’t possibly ad anything to these unbelievable photos. Just some of many that show just how bad it was for Galveston, Texas.

Similar stories were common coming out of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and they need to be heard. This is absolutely ridiculous. This is how people act? Deplorable.
This past spring into summer (2008) there was catastrophic flooding in Iowa – if you watched the Olympics you heard about Shawn Johnson’s hometown flooding. That was the case over much of the state of Iowa, a disaster very near the level of any hurricane, homes were destroyed, livelihoods taken.
What didn’t come out of Iowa were stories like this one. Nobody looted, nobody begged for handouts, nobody cried racism, nobody blamed the Federal Gov’t, nobody blamed anybody. Instead people helped their friends and neighbors the best they could; people acted like human beings.

When I started this blog I really had no idea what it would be or what it would turn in to. I’m still not sure I know.
So far I’ve avoided politics, but…Obama….seriously people….really?
Okay, that’s enough controversy. Luckily, nobody really reads this stuff.
So my question today is not so simple and not exactly new, ground breaking thinking but I wonder….
Are people naturally (or instinctively) good and they have to try to be (or learn to be) evil? Or are we all evil trying to be good?
Perhaps evil is the wrong word, maybe that gives too much negative conotation. Good or Bad? Does that make it easier?
