"The world is moved not only by the mighty shoves..."


"The world is moved not only by the mighty shoves of the heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker." -- Helen Keller

How true Helen.

And I think it also thirsts for genuine leadership.

Leadership is not all about money and power or overuse of power. People want leadership that is about people

All people, not just some of the people. Leadership is certainly NOT politicians who sell their favors.

We just had a Congressman resign for taking a $2.5 MILLION bribe! He was a Republican. The Republican Ex-Majority Leader is under indictment for a felony.

You don’t get a felony indictment for jaywalking. Bribery is a serious offense. Abuse of power is wrong. The GOP needs some new people.

My focus is on restoring honor to Congress.

In the last week much has been happening. Pledges are pouring in. Donations are rolling in. THANK YOU!

Spread the word.

We shall continue this campaign for all the "tiny pushes of each honest worker" and American.

We are calling it: "Operation Restore Honor"....

P.S. It’s not about being a hero. It is about helping people. It is about doing the right thing as an honorable Congressman represents our country and all the people in it regardless of religion, color, etc.

My goal is to be a statesman, not a monarch.

To do this, I need your donation TODAY. Do it for justice, honor and America.

Bio Engineering - Bugs that make drugs

If you want a eye-popping peek at the future, then read this article on bio engineering.

It will sound like science fiction, but it's not. Some of it sounds totally bizarre, but it is already happening.

Scientists in Israel have made the world's smallest computer by engineering DNA to carry out mathematical functions. Other researchers are engineering the E. coli bug with genes from the wormwood plant and yeast to create a new malaria drug.

The worry is that there is no control on this system that could also produce something harmful - a bio disaster could be the result along with new malaria drugs, etc. It is not on Congress' radar because it is so new.

Scientists are creating new life forms with vast and unknown impact. This is something Congress should be looking at now before there is a disaster by "gene hackers" using these "Mail order genes." They could be used for anything by anyone in the world.

Congress should be proactive, not just reactive. Preparing in advance to avoid pandemics like Avian flu and future bio terrors should be a central part of Congress and our leadership.

It certainly is my focus. Our future depends on what we do now to prepare for these and the other rapid changes sweeping this brave new world.

I'm off to deliver food to the less fortunate today. Thank God for this country and our unique system.

Congressman For Sale

If you want to see who is buying our representative, then read Craig Hines column today in the Houston Chronicle.

He talks about the lobbyists who showed up and ponied up $2,100 apiece to DeLay's campaign fund a few blocks from the people's Congress.

That is efficient - Mr. deLay doesn't have to go far from his office to grab the fat checks and run to the bank before signing back in at Congress to do whatever the lobby wants him to do - not what the people of his district need or want.

"Congressman for Sale" should be a sign hanging outside his door. It could not get any more apparent than watching this DC money grab go on. It's almost like open Prostitution. It is Legalized bribery and vote buying...

What kind of American values is this Mr. DeLay?

I will represent the people of this district who have real concerns from prescription drugs to pensions, not the lobbyists.

Admission of Guilt

It is Veteran's Day - and I salute all vets for their service to this country.

In today's Washington Post is a blockbuster. Apparently Mr DeLay admitted in front of prosecutor Ronnie Earle (after agreeing to a stenographer recording it) that he knew about the illegal $190,000 BEFORE it happened, and approved it.

In law, that is called an "Admission against interest."

Yikes. That is serious.

That means his seat could become vacate after the primary next March, if he is re-elected and then convicted based on his own admission and other evidence...

GOP, We Have A Problem

GOP, we have a problem - an image problem.

The election yesterday resulted in Democrats taking two Governor spots --Virginia and New Jersey-- and does not bode well for the GOP in 2006.

Anyone who says otherwise is whistling past the cemetery.

The former House majority leader is under indictment. The Vice President's Chief of Staff is under indictment on a separate matter. Spending has gone nuts. The proposed cuts miss the fat and cripple our future.

As the election showed yesterday, either we make the change or the people will. If the GOP does not change out these characters, the public will do it for them --by picking Democrats instead of Republicans.

The next opportunity to do that is in the District 22 primary next March.

What if the district GOP primary voters elect an indicted Congressman next March, who gets convicted before the general election? That will be great for the Democrat in the race.

Even if he is not convicted (DeLay's lawyer got off a guy who shot and chopped up his neighbor), the damage has been done.

"Where there is smoke, there's fire." The incumbent has already rolled up several reprimands and become a national negative symbol for the party.

The incumbent's skeleton pile is becoming a mountain. This cannot be a good thing for the district, the party or America...

Congress Deficit - Send in an Accountant

If you want to read a good article on the "new math" used by Congress in its budget games, read this article in the Chronicle. "Spending like drunken sailors" comes to mind. Congress could use some accountants to challenge the voodoo math when they take our social security money and count it as "surplus." They didn't teach me that in accounting class at UT. They don't teach that in accounting at A&M either. Congress needs to put those funds in a lock box then deal with the reality of what is left. But, like sailors hitting town after months at sea, it won't happen until we change the players. The debt will leave a huge burden on your kids and grandkids. And finally this. DeLay's cuts are in all the wrong places - if he continues "business as usual" we will create a permanent underclass -- and his policies will end up bring the "Paris riot burnings" here. That is what happens when politicians create an atmosphere where people don't have opportunity to move up.

DeLay blames Minority for Budget Bloat - Go Figure

Check this out in today's Houston Chronicle:

"In a speech to a group of conservative academics and policy experts, DeLay blamed the runaway spending of recent years on minority Democrats."

What? And check this quote:

"When he took questions, the first came from a senior official at the American Conservative Union, who asked DeLay, "How large does the Republican majority in the House and Senate need to be before Republicans act like the fiscal conservative I thought we were?"

Very good question.

Take responsibility Mr. DeLay - the bloat in the budget is what you made as majority leader. Quit blaming the minority for your $24 billion pork barrel 'bridge to nowhere."

It has been on your watch that we have the highest deficits on record - nearly $500 billion/year. Don't blame others for the mess you created.

And $24 billion in highway pork is just the tip of the bloat...This quote from the article sums it up best:

"The Club for Growth, a conservative group that funds like-minded candidates for Congress, has turned the highway legislation into a bumper sticker for the GOP's fiscal failings. "Too many Congressional Republicans have veered away from the limited government agenda that got them elected to the majority in Congress. They have approved pork-barrel highway bills worse than the Democrats used to give us," says one appeal to supporters."
