Egypt/Global Warming/Webb

It has been inspiring to watch the protesters demonstrate in the Cairo streets against the brutal dictator, Hosni Mubarak. Nobody knows how the situation will play out, but all people deserve the opportunity to live in freedom with the rights that we enjoy here in America. It was a positive step hearing the White House strongly criticize Mubarak's decision to stay on in power. We need to keep the pressure on until Mubarak is removed from power and continually pressure Arab countries to liberalize their countries and allow for greater freedoms.

As the most brutal of winters continues in the northeast continues, it is an opportune time to ask if the liberals are willing to drop their insistence that the earth is warming at a dangerous pace? The left has taken up the argument that all weather events (snow, ice, brutal cold) are a result of global warming.
The announcement of Jim Webb that he would not seek re-election in 2012 is a major blow to the Senate Democrats and a sign that 2012 will be difficult for the Democratic Party. With two Democrats in red states already announcing that they will not seek re-election in 2012 and with the re-election map stacked against the Democrats, the odds of the Democrats retaining control of the Senate in 2012 are long (and becoming longer).
