Gonzales won't quit

This is so irritating. Gonzales is fighting to keep his job and pulling the Holy War on Vice card.
GONZALES: I’m not going to resign. I’m going to stay focused on protecting our kids. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done around the country. The department is responsible for protecting our kids, for making our neighborhoods safe, for protecting our country against attacks of terrorism, to going after gangs, going after drug dealers. I’m staying focussed on that.

When all else fails invoke the war on some drugs and porn. And make no mistake, this is what he's talking about.

Gonzales won't resign so he can continue to "protect" our kids by tying up our judicial resources with nanny prosecutions on "crimes" of personal choice between consenting adults. But the administration's drug war has made our children immeasurably less safe from drugs by creating an unregulated black market and the war on porn is just as much a sham.

They're not focusing on child pornographers, they're going after adults and worse yet, our own government is in the porn business itself, even while it indicts other vendors for providing the same titles. If Gonzales thinks calling for more nanny government is going to win me over, he should think again. I'd say it's one more good reason to get rid of him.

Alberto Gonzales says he is working tirelessly to be sure he has every American's back covered...

I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve always been suspicious of the guy that seems to go out of his way to tell you he’s "got your back covered".

See a sarcastic visual that demonstrates how many Americans feel when the Attorney General reassures us that he's got our backs covered...here:

He is disgusting, just like his boss. For a very quick tour, including your city, Libby, of how crime in America compares, check out my post a few days ago. The streets of America is where the terror is and the government is not doing one thing to change that except take everyones mind off of it by focusing on the foreign pseudo threat. All the while they are sucking the NRA's dicks and panting for more. Thats how much Gonzalez cares about your kids and your welfare.

Hey Brian. Good to see you. Interesting stats. I don't actually live in Detroit but it's common knowledge they have a crime problem there.

I'm not so sure you can correlate that to guns though. I think it has more to do with poverty, at least in Detroit.

You have other great posts up as well. I've been remiss in visiting my blogroll again but I hope to rectify that in the next few days. I'd like a closer look at that global warming chart .
