But Wait - There's More!


"Gov. David Patterson admits to numerous affairs"

Can we please have leaders we can be proud of? I was positively giddy over Governor Spitzer's downfall and of course I'm always happy to see morons fall flat on their faces but enough is enough. I'm ready for the United States to have respectable leaders, leaders that I, as an American, can be proud of.

The United States is too great a nation to be made a fool of by our idiot politicians.

The United States was made a laughing stock when Bill Clinton's affairs came out. New York is now a laughing stock from Governor Spitzer. And though New Yorkers may be willing to overlook Governor Patterson's behavior in the name of unity, I'm sure the rest of the country is only laughing the harder at us.

All I know is I'm tired of laughing. It's not funny anymore. I said in my post about Governor Spitzer that if a politician can't keep the most important promise of his life, the promise, before God, to be faithful to his wife, than he's not gonna keep his far less important campaign promises. If you can't keep the most important promise of your life then you don't deserve to be in politics. You do not represent me and my beliefs. And no one has the right to make a laughing stock out of the country that I am proud of, the country that our soldiers have fought and died for. Our nation deserves better than that.

The Arrogance of Power

Governor Elliot Spitzer (D-NY) was today accused of hiring prostitutes from the "call-girl business" the Emperors Club VIP.

Hiring prostitutes is a crime in New York State. Elliot Spitzer was the Attorney General of New York and is now the Governor. While other politicians have love affairs, while doing nothing technically illegal, Governor Spitzer, the chief law enforcer of the state of New York, blatantly defied the law, commiting a crime that, almost certainly, would be found out.

Governor Spitzer's actions were discovered through federal wire-tappings in which he arranged a meeting with one of the prostitutes.

Having been Attorney General, and having used wire-tapping to its full potential, Governor Spitzer ought to have known what a precarious situation he was placing himself in. However in his characteristic arrogance the governor once again believed he could get away with it simply because he is Elliot Spitzer.

"Mr. Clean" as the governor has been called told the people of New York during his campaign for governor that he would be the one to clean up Albany, to get New York's government out of scandal. However, from his first day in office, Governor Spitzer's administration has been bogged down with scandal and the arrogance of power which he so perfectly characterizes.

Governor Spitzer in his remarks today stated that "I do not believe that politics in the long run is about individuals, it is about ideas, the public good, and doing what is best for the state of New York." He furthermore referred to this as a "private matter" and said that "I apologize to the public, whom I promised better".

Mr. Spitzer promised us many things during his campaign. Many would say, as Governor Spitzer said, that politics is not about "individuals" but "about ideas, the public good, and doing what is best for the state of New York". That is what politics is about. However, if a politician can't keep the most important promise of his or her life, the promise, before God, to remain faithful to his or her spouse, why should the public trust them with their far less important campaign promises?

Since being elected governor Mr. Spitzer has shown absolute contempt for the promises he made during his campaign. He has not, as he promised to do, cleaned up Albany. On the contrary, Albany is dirtier than ever.

If Mr. Spitzer had any decency left in him he would have resigned immediately.

We've all heard of people asking their local drugstore cashier "Has this product been tested on animals?" Most cosmetic companies now make it a point to state clearly on their packaging that "This product has not been tested on animals." But have you ever seen on a bottle of hand cream "This product contain the parts of aborted babies."? Cuz you should.

The leading 12 shampoos and 5 hand creams in your local drugstore contain human collagen, a "gelatinous substance found in connective tissue, bone, and cartillage" which also happens to have a wonderful moisturizing effect. And guess where they get it from? Aborted babies.

Mary Kay and Hask Cosmetics have both sent out statements assuring their customers that their collagen comes only from animals. Other cosmetics companies are not so humane.

Next time you're out buying you're makeup check the bottles. Unless the label specifically says that the product contains animal or bovine collagen it most likely comes from dead children. Don't support these companies!
