But, hon,

You haven't given us a source that says impeach means anything other than "to bring charges"....

Good luck, I have been trying to explain it to the same 4 or 5 talking heads in here for the better part of 3 years, and they still don't get it.
I find it funny that I am "against" same-sex marriage when I voted against a Constitutional ban on it in Alaska.
Now, I certainly don't agree with homosexuality nor do I understand it, but who cares. It's not my place to tell someone else how to live. And allowing them to marry certainly doesn't effect my life one way or another. I don't cross the road to avoid homosexuals, I don't think they are "nasty" or "mentally ill", they are just different, and what's wrong with that.
The argument I have made against same-sex marriage is the same argument I have made against traditional marriage- why do we let the State and Fed control our personal relationships, and why are there benefits for said relationships? And how can someone say we are somehow gaining "freedom" when we either vote or fight in court for same-sex marriage? Aren't we really affirming the belief that we really don't have right's and freedom's, what we have is actually government granted privileges?
That's why I always call BS when liberals claim they are fighting for "freedom", they are actually fighting for more government control. Just because that control may result in a favorable outcome for their desires for now, what they have really done is relinquish more freedom to the government.
We really have no idea what true freedom is anymore.
And for this you get dim bulbs, red Xs, and the like. Brilliant, no?

What can I say? Some people just go through life with blinders on.

A lot of this can be attributed to our educational system and in all honesty the internet and TV.

Now I am not trying to sound like some fuddy duddy from the 50's, but follow the logic for a second.

Our educational system no longer teaches critical thinking skills, everything is spoon fed to you, simply regurgitate without question and you will pass the test.

This idea that we don't need critical thinking is further confirmed through the internet and TV. With the internet we think we can simply google and find the answers, since we are taught to simply read and regurgitate we no longer check sources or question what we read so long as it confirms what we are trying to prove. Television, with its 24 hour "news" cycle, and lack of investigative reporting further solidifies that we no longer require critical thinking. They will tell us what is important and will draw up the conclusion's and result's for us. Again no need to think.

This mentality is also what is leading us to look to government for the solution to all our problems, and it isn't going to be pretty once we "get our wish."

If it's plain and simple to understand, then it wasn't presented by a Republican or tea party member.

He took a real beating today. Brought it on himself, like always. Thought he was a real tough guy, like always. He's worn out and feeling low. But still twitching a little. Finish him off for me, I'm sick of the jackass!

Yes, he was impeached. That's what the House does: votes on articles of impeachment. It passed, so Clinton was impeached. The trial takes place before the Senate... Clinton was acquitted. Impeached only means indicted, nothing else, regardless of what this looney toon Mike says.
Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. The actual trial on those charges, and subsequent removal of an official on conviction on those charges, is separate from the act of impeachment itself.
Impeachment is analogous to indictment in regular court proceedings, while trial by the other house is analogous to the trial before judge and jury in regular courts. Typically, the lower house of the legislature will impeach the official and the upper house will conduct the trial.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_in_t...


Let me just add that Bill Clinton was impeached in the House on Dec 19, 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice regardless of what this looney toon Mona Lott says. If he hadn't been, the case would have ended there. But he was so it went to the Senate where he was eventually acquitted.

Thank you.

Mona Lott. What a dope!
