Seperated At Birth: Jon Corzine & BTK Killer Dennis Rader

Joyce Comments: The side-by-side resemblance should say it all. They look uncannily and unsettlingly like twins. Both are criminals the difference one is a white collar criminal and the other is a cold-blooded blue collar one.

Corzine Boast: Record of accomplishment for the state - securing federal funds.

Fact: Worst record in securing federal funds - for every dollar of income tax New Jersey taxpayers send to the federal government New Jersey receives 57¢ in return, the lowest return in the nation.

Corzine Boast: Rose to become CEO Goldman Sachs.

Fact: Became CEO of Goldman Sachs in the Fall of 1994 and fired at the end of 1998 when his executive-committee colleagues unanimously voted to remove him from his post as CEO. It’s hard to believe any CEO of a Wall Street firm could have been fired during the go-go years of the 1990’s. A firm on auto-pilot would have raked in the dough.

Corzine Boast: Principled leader who rises above partisan politics.

Fact: Digging all the back to yesterday for an example: In a conference call with reporters Monday (March 21, 2005), Sen. John Corzine, D-NJ, one of the leading opponents of the president's plan, said Cheney had "a virtual career of disdain for Social Security," and compared his appearances to sending Saddam Hussein to campaign for democracy in Iraq.

If this is Corzine’s idea of a principled leader who rises above partisan politics, we don’t want to be around when things get ugly

8/7/05 - A Brief Message from Bill

Hello readers,
I just wanted to take a minute to say, "Thank You very much!", for reading my blog. I have had tons of fun doing this. To date, there are around 450 posts here. Old news is only old when you heard about it, is one of the things I usually say.

I am here to tell you that I will be taking a breather from doing this. I have issues of higher importance to address at this time, which will deprive the time of researching and making posts. I hope that you find something enlightening in the prior posts.

To all- Take care, and I will catch up to y'all later!
