An interesting article appeared yesterday in the Washington Times describing the precipitous decline in membership for CAIR in recent years - down from 29,000 members in 2000 to only 1,700 in 2006. CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, pretends to be a civil rights organization. Frankly, this is a sham. It is clear they want nothing less than the adoption of Sharia law for America. Several CAIR spokespeople have been caught saying this in the past. It is not surprising that most mainstream American thinking Muslims are rejecting CAIR. They have known ties to Hamaas and other terrorist jihadist groups and have been named as co-conspirators. I would urge you to find out more about this very narrow-minded group that hides behind a cloak of civil rights. Here are some web sites for further reading.

When all is said and done, I think this administration will go down in history as the most corrupt ever. Every day we hear of new depths of unethical behavior by people who are entrusted with our lives. Dick Cheney heads the list of arrogant power mongers who don't give a rat's ass about the integrity of what our country stands for. According to this Washington Post article, Dick disagreed with justice officials about the illegality of wiretaps. Now that, of course, is not the problem. Everyone has the right to disagree. But, according to testimony of former deputy attorney general James Comey, Cheney's office retaliated by blocking the promotion of senior Justice Department lawyer, Patrick Philbin. Why did he block the promotion? Because Patrick raised concerns about the illegal surveillance that Cheney was pushing for. I'm sorry, this kind of retaliation seems to be commonplace in this administration. When will it stop? I think Cheney belongs in jail.
