"Most Ethical"?...

A grand jury in Alexandria indicted Mr. Jefferson on Monday on 16 counts connected to a bribery investigation that could send him to prison for the rest of his life. The charges include racketeering, soliciting bribes, wire fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice and conspiracy. He faces a possible maximum sentence of 235 years.

The indictment said Mr. Jefferson received more than $500,000 in bribes and sought millions more in separate schemes to enrich himself by using his office to broker business deals in Africa. The charges came almost two years after investigators raided Mr. Jefferson's home in Washington and found $90,000 in cash stuffed in his freezer.

Fred Thompson ~Richmond VA.~


Fred Thompson spoke to the crowd gathered at the Republican Party of Virginia Gala this weekend in Richmond. The entire speech is being provided on CSPAN and is very powerful and inspiring to those who still believe in the United States and the people who made this the greatest nation…

Regarding the upcoming shortfalls in Social Security, Medicare, and other challenges facing America, Thompson had these statements:

“Unless we do some things differently.

We’re going have to be more focused, we’re going have to be smarter. We’re going have to be more determined, and we’re going have to be more together, as a nation, then we have ever been before…

Are we together?
Are we more together?
I look at Congress and I see the only real debate going on in Congress is what are surrender date is going to be.

I listen to the Democratic Congressional leaders I hear them talk about how many seats they are going to pick up because of this war.

I listen to one of their Presidential candidates talk about this is a phony war.
The war on terror.

This is what passes for policy today in the Democratic party.

I see a Congress that does not realize that what’s going on now is part of a much bigger picture.

I don’t know how to put this any simpler. There are many, many people out there in this world today who’s number one target is the United States of America and killing as many innocent Americans as they possibly can.

They have a hundred year plan and this is just part of the plan. And they can look a hundred years into the future while as far as we can look sometimes presumably is to the next election”…
