The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period. That means that a person is about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in the U.S. Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than in Iraq.
Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington D.C.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

In Case You Missed It...
Tuesday, December 12, 2006
European Socialists promised on Thursday to work to rebuild Europe's strategic alliance with the United States now that the Democrats control Congress after last month's elections.
In other words, the Republicans told the European Socialists to not bother spreading their message. Republicans weren't interested. But now that Democrats are "back in power", the European Socialists are ready to get down to the business of wealth redistribution.
Wait, it gets better. The article continues:
Howard Dean, chairman of the national committee of the U.S. Democratic Party, is attending the two-day [European Socialist Party] conference together with the leaders of leftist governments of several countries and party leaders from across Europe.
Whomever denies Democrats are Socialists is an ignorant fool. I mean, the proof is right here. Why else would the Portuguese Socialist Prime Minister Jose Socrates say, "Europe needs an America that is back on track."? What he's saying is that he needs America back on track with their Socialist agenda.
Get ready, America. You voted for it!
Talk to Power: Sen. Patty Murray
Tuesday, December 05, 2006
"...that civility on the boards is required. Thank you again for taking part in our discussion and be sure to check back on Thursday for Sen. Murray's responses to your questions."
Judging by the rhetoric from both parties, it sounds as if the partisan bickering and the in-fighting in our government will continue. In view of this, do you see an opportunity for a third party to arise in American politics since the majority of Americans are getting very sick of the endless and useless partisan bickering?

The past six years have seen much partisanship and obstruction by your party in the Senate. You have shown very little independence when it comes to putting the peoples' business ahead of your party. As one of your constituents I want to know what you, as a leader in the Senate, are going to do to get the Senate back to business for the good of all those you represent.
