    CNN exposed a situation in a high school in MA where teenagers were getting pregnant on purpose. In Round Rock, Texas, Round Rock High School had 19 teen pregnancies in May of 2008.

    How many high schools in the United States is being faced with this problem and we just do not realize it?

    Obama's economical Plan is impossible with his issues and platform.

    The Country will nose dive into the Worse Depression it could ever have, and never recover from.

    He threw reality and common sense out the window with this. Your do not have to be an economic major to see it.

    Are we at the point in our society that we can no longer say anything that isn't politically correct? HORSE HOCKEY. We have gone too far. Ralph Nader has nothing to apologize for.

    Why isn't anyone defending Ralph Nader's constitutional right to express his opinion. Remember Freedom of Speach?

    I'm looking forward to hearing about the climate change hearing tomorrow night. Dr. Hansen who first gave the warning about global warming to Congress 20 years ago spoke to the Congress on the 20th anniversary of that message on Monday – he said we were very close to a "tipping point" and that drastic measures were needed – that it was almost too late. I'd like to hear more about this and what sorts of solutions were discussed this week in the hearings.
