I can't hear you...

When you were in first grade, that's what you would say as you plugged your ears while someone said something you didn't like. Now it seems to be the Bush administration's official policy on the increasing number of terrorist attacks worldwide.

You have an interesting blog. Very intelligent criticisms. Only question, you state you are a common sense moderate. I only see criticisms of republicans and Pres. Bush, some I concede are deserved. Surely there are some liberals and democrats worthy of some shots too to prove moderation. I have to call myself a conservative because that's the side I most often come down on. But, it's your blog and I like your thought processes.

Thanks for stopping by, anonymous reader. I've criticized liberals and Democrats on here before, including the entire Alabama Legislature, which has a Democratic majority.

As for why you see more criticisms of Republicans right now, it's simple: They're the ones in charge, and I believe we have a duty as Americans to hold the majority accountable for its actions.

Sorry for posting anonymously. I hit the wrong button and just found out. I agree with you about holding accountable the people in charge. That also includes the leadership of the "loyal opposition" who are not being held accountable enough for some recent atrocious language and actions. People in the middle should also recognize this. Well, people may disagree in America. Enjoy your site.

If you browse the archives, you'll find criticism of the "loyal opposition," as you call it, when it's warranted. You'll also find praise of the Republican majority when it's warranted. I try to be as even-handed as circumstances dictate and as time allows, but no one can strike a balance that will please everyone from all parts of the political spectrum.

Thanks for the praise. I hope you stick around.
